Summary:

It is 2001 in New York City, in the lull between the collapse of the dotcom boom and the terrible events of September 11th. Silicon Alley is a ghost town, Web 1.0 is having adolescent angst, Google has yet to IPO, Microsoft is still considered the Evil Empire. There may not be quite as much money around as there was at the height of the tech bubble, but there's no shortage of swindlers looking to grab a piece of what's left. Maxine Tarnow is running a nice little fraud investigation business on the Upper West Side, chasing down different kinds of small-scale con artists. She used to be legally certified but her licence got pulled a while back, which has actually turned out to be a blessing because now she can follow her own code of ethics - carry a Beretta, do business with sleazebags, hack into people's bank accounts - without having too much guilt about any of it. Otherwise, just your average working mum - two boys in elementary school, an off-and-on situation with her sort of semi-ex-husband Horst, life as normal as it ever gets in the neighbourhood - till Maxine starts looking into the finances of a computer-security firm and its billionaire geek CEO, whereupon things begin rapidly to jam onto the subway and head downtown. She soon finds herself mixed up with a drug runner in an art deco motorboat, a professional nose obsessed with Hitler's aftershave, a neoliberal enforcer with footwear issues, plus elements of the Russian mob and various bloggers, hackers, code monkeys and entrepreneurs, some of whom begin to show up mysteriously dead. Foul play, of course. With occasional excursions into the Deep Web and out to Long Island, Thomas Pynchon, channelling his inner Jewish mother, brings us a historical romance of New York in the early days of the Internet, not that distant in calendar time but galactically remote from where we've journeyed to since. Will perpetrators be revealed, forget about brought to justice? Will Maxine have to take the handgun out of her purse? Will she and Horst get back together? Will Jerry Seinfeld make an unscheduled guest appearance? Will accounts secular and karmic be brought into balance? Hey. Who wants to know?

Summary:

From their towering westerns to their edgy thrillers Home Invasion and The Blood of Patriots, William W. Johnstone and J.A. Johnstone capture the true American spirit. In this electrifying new thriller--torn from today's headlines--they put us on the frontlines of a new war: for the future of America itself. The Shady Hill Mobile Home Park isn't shady or hilly--this is West Texas after all. To military vet John Howard Stark, it's home. And worth fighting for. A vicious Mexican drug cartel starts terrorizing the residents of Shady Hill--retirees mostly--leaving severed heads in vegetable gardens to scare them out. As usual, the Feds and the local police run for cover. The good people of Shady Hill make a stand, electing Stark as their chief of police. Once a rancher, always a Texan, Stark and his fellow patriots send the Mexican cartel into a bloodthirsty fury by daring to fight back: the bad guys start slaughtering innocent high school students. The God-fearing folks of Shady Hill are totally on their own and deep in the heart of a bloody battle that can only end in a fight for survival, liberty. . .or death.

Summary:

This acclaimed volume features one of the most distinguished lineups of any original anthology published in recent years-ranging from legends such as Ray Bradbury, Richard Matheson, George Clayton Johnson, Earl Hamner, Jr., and Dan O'Bannon to such leading contemporary figures as Nancy Kilpatrick, John Shirley, Joe R. Lansdale, and Steve Rasnic Tem. While basically hewing to the genre of weird fiction, "The Bleeding Edge" runs the gamut of subject-matter, from the ghost story to Lovecraftian horror to fantasy. There is something for everyone in this wondrously diverse book-the only point of consistency is the exemplary quality of the material. "Nolan and Brock have put together a compelling anthology of dark short fiction that includes unused "Twilight Zone" scripts and unpublished work by the likes of Ray Bradbury and Richard Matheson. There is something for everyone in the 20 stories and scripts."-"Publishers Weekly" "This volume is a snapshot of the extraordinarily rich and varied modes of writing that have dominated weird fiction over the past fifty to seventy-five years. . . . In these days when 'theme' anthologies all too often produce monotonous sameness in motif and treatment, it is refreshing to come upon a volume as multifaceted as this one."-"from S. T. Joshi's Foreword"

Summary:

Après deux premiers tomes dédiés aux bases et aux aspects avancés de l'administration système, ce troisième tome de la série Linux Administration traite de toutes les facettes de la sécurité Linux : sécurité de connexion, sécurité réseau, pare-feu, audit de sécurité, politiques de sécurité, etc. Très pragmatique dans son approche, l'auteur va à l'essentiel avec des fiches de cours synthétiques, accompagnées d'ateliers qui forment un recueil de recettes pratiques pour la gestion au quotidien de la sécurité d'un serveur Linux. Cette seconde édition prend en compte l'évolution des outils et des usages, et se fait l'écho de la montée en puissance d'outils comme SELinux, OpenVPN, OpenVAS ou Metasploit. L'auteur a choisi de mettre l'accent sur le mode commande, plutôt que sur les outils graphiques fournis avec les distributions. La connaissance des fichiers et des commandes qui se cachent derrière ces outils est en effet indispensable aux administrateurs opérant dans un contexte professionnel, et offre l'avantage d'une certaine indépendance vis-à-vis des distributions. Les quelques variantes sont indiquées dans des sections intitulées Les particularités des distributions, qui couvrent Red Hat/Fedora/CentOS et Debian/Ubuntu.

Summary:

New York, début des années 2000, entre l'éclatement spectaculaire de la bulle Internet et l'effondrement des tours jumelles. Maxine, jeune mère new-yorkaise à la vie amoureuse mouvementée, est une inspectrice des fraudes qui a perdu sa licence officielle pour avoir trop bien conseillé un client véreux. Elle n'a pourtant pas remisé son pistolet, et la voilà embarquée malgré elle dans une aventure haletante et dangereuse : comment se fait-il que la start-up du très louche Gabriel Ice n'ait pas bu le bouillon alors que l'ensemble du marché du Net s'est brutalement dégonflé quelques mois auparavant ? D'où viennent les flux de capitaux qui circulent vers de mystérieux comptes à l'étranger ? Pour le savoir, Maxine, entourée par une ribambelle de personnages décalés, va devoir plonger et éviter de se perdre dans le Web Profond, cette interzone quasi inaccessible, refuge des hackers anarchistes, des cybervoyous et des âmes perdues. Traduit de l'anglais (États-Unis) par Nicolas Richard.
