Description

Ben Bova was born on November 8, 1932 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. He was an avid fencer in younger days, and organized Avco Everett's fencing club. He is a cautious environmentalist, but rejects Luddism.

The dueling machine is an invention that helps keep peace throughout the universe by allowing people to settle disagreements with virtual duels. Instead of using weapons, those with disagreements can “hook” their brains into this machine and “fight” without bringing harm to anyone. However, things go wrong, and participants DO end up getting hurt. Can the inventor bring peace back to the universe?

The Dueling Machine eBook uses the established Standard Works book reader already enjoyed by tens of thousands of users. It's also the same reader which powers our "U.S. Historical Documents" application which received a perfect 10/10 rating from AppCraver.com and was recently featured on the iTunes App Store.

The Standard Works book reader is simple to use, but also contains many advanced features not usually found in other eBook readers. Rather than continually flicking through little pages of text like some book readers, the Standard Works book reader displays an entire chapter or book at once for you convenience. The text can even automatically scroll for you in both portrait and landscape modes while reading. You can even highlight important words or phrases using the absolute best highlighting system available on the iPhone platform. Create notes for each paragraph which can be displayed inline and assign bookmarks to any paragraph in any book for future reference. And if that's not enough, quickly and easily find any text from any book with the fastest and most powerful search engine available on the iPhone.

The Standard Works book reader contains the following main features:

• Auto-scrolling (both variable-speed and tilt-based, portrait and landscape modes are supported)

• Adjustable fonts, size, colors, margins, spacing, and alignment (you can even adjust the font size by using a pinching gesture while reading!)

• Highlighting - 12 background colors, 12 foreground colors, bold, italic, and underline

• Night (low-light) mode - Black background with white text

• Application tips

• Bookmarks and even folders of bookmarks

• Last location in each book is remembered

• When re-launched, you're returned to the exact location you were last at while reading

• Search for words or phrases with INSTANT search results

• Powerful advanced search options

• Create notes for each paragraph which can be displayed inline

• Animated satin bookmark (similar to the one in the Classics application)

• Ability to choose the application's color theme
