The House of Dies Drear by Virginia Hamilton
“The House of Dies Drear is a young adult novel by American author Virginia Hamilton. Dies Drear was first published 1968, and is a ghost story (maybe!) and a mystery (definitely!), told mostly from the point of view of Thomas Small, a thirteen-year-old boy. It’s set in an isolated, old house full of secret passageways and hidden tunnels. The house used to be a ‘station’ on the Underground Railroad, the name given to a network of people dedicated to helping American slaves escape from their masters and reach freedom in the pre-Civil War era”

Book Cover of U.S. NASA Space Shuttle (Discovery, Atlantis, Endeavour, Columbia, Challenger, Enterprise) and Military Composite Pictures eBook by Luming Marr, which has been published for Kindle eReader, iPhone and PC. For more information, please go to www.amazon.com/dp/B004VMTX8I or www.amazon.com/s/ref=nb_sb_noss?url=node%3D133141011&… (Kindle store) and search for ”Space Shuttle Composite Pictures” or "Luming Marr". 美国太空总署 (NASA) 太空梭 (奋进号, 发现号, 亚特兰提斯号, 哥伦比亚号, 挑战者号, 企业号) 及军事合成照片集电子书已出版。
美國太空 總署 (NASA) 太空梭 (奮進號, 發現號, 亞特蘭提斯號, 哥倫比亞號, 挑戰者號, 企業號) 及軍事合成照片集電子書已出版。
This book contains 77 composite pictures created by using Adobe Photoshop to combine images from NASA and military websites — space shuttles, fighter planes, aircraft carriers, destroyers, astronauts, airmen, sailors, soldiers – to become amusing and meaningful new pictures which are not seen anywhere else. You will find that the events described in many pictures and captions did not really happen in the way as shown, some of them cannot even exist except in composite picture form. Please relax and enjoy.
NASA is retiring its space shuttle fleet, this book could be a perfect way to re-visit many of the great moments in the space shuttle history with a little smile on your face and, sometimes, with tears in your eyes. I spent a great deal of my spare time to make the composite pictures and I am glad that I now have the opportunity to share them with you.
This book is designed, created and written by Luming Marr, who is holding a Master of Arts in Communications degree and the professional title “PMP” (Project Management Professional) currently. He is a professional computer programmer at a leading insurance company in Los Angeles for over 20 years. He made his first composite picture album (by using scissors, paste and old magazines) as his class project portfolio when he took the Advanced Photography course as a graduate student studying Journalism 30 years ago.

I would like to give my special thanks to the following government agencies for offering the high-quality images on their official websites which I used for creating the composite pictures, without those images, this book would be impossible to become reality:

NASA, Air Force, Army, Coast Guard, Department of Defense, Jet Propulsion Laboratory, Marine Corps, National Park Service, Navy.
I am sure you will enjoy this book and, after you see the composite pictures, you won’t hesitate to introduce and recommend it to your relatives and friends. Let us use this eBook as a means to commemorate the contribution, sacrifice and hard work of all the astronauts and all the people who ever involved in the space shuttle programs and made our beloved space shuttles – Atlantis, Discovery, Endeavour, Columbia and Challenger – which brought our imagination, ambition, courage and determination high into space and beyond – to live forever in our memory. Thank you very much! To parents and teachers, if your children or students like science, this eBook on Kindle or iPhone will be a great education tool.
