"Defiant" is the ninth in a series of near future SciFi/Thrillers whose young heroine Ell Donsaii has a nerve mutation which has made her a genius as well as an athletic phenomenon. In "Defiant," she, her husband Shan Kinrais, and their friend Gary Pace begin working on commercialization of the carbon allotrope technology they learned about in "Allotropes." Also, new uses, both beneficial and dangerous are being found for her ports. These wormholes aren't big enough to send people through, yet they make possible technologies that have created huge changes in our world. Those changes have resulted in tremendous economic and political upheavals. The political disturbances bring Edith Stockton to Presidential power, a woman who despises Ell and who is being stroked in that direction by individuals who want the secrets of Ell's highly dangerous 'single-ended ports.' Stockton imprisons Ell in an effort to extort the single-ended port technology from her. Ell, having determined that she cannot release that particular secret, must decide how to respond.

Note: Body of book is in Arabic; preface is in English. The Rahat-Us-Sudur Wa Ayat-Us-Surur is a rare and unique account of the history of the Saljuq dynasty of Persia. Aside from a helpful introduction in English about the work and its author, the entirety of the text is in Persian. It was originally written in naskh and dates back to the 1st of Ramadan, 635, or April 17, 1238. The manuscript covers the rule of the Saljuqs, who were in power in Persia from 1037-1194, and contains first-hand accounts of the decline and fall of the empire, as the author was a favorite courtier of Sultan Tughril and had access to privileged court information. The editor, Muhammad Iqbal, also includes cross-references to Ibn-ul-Athir and al-Bundari, two independent authorities on Saljuq history.MUHAMMAD IBN ALI IBN SULAYMAN AR-RAWANDI belonged to a family of scholars and professors in Rawand, a small neighboring town to Kashan. As a young boy, severe famine in Isfahan and the death of his father interrupted his studies. Eventually, his uncle Taj-ud-din became his guardian and teacher, and Ar-Rawandi became proficient in calligraphy, book-binding, gilding, law, and theology. His talents brought him favor with the last Sultan of the Saljuq family, who valued education and the art of calligraphy and gilding. This connection helped him write The Rahat-Us-Sudur Wa Ayat-Us-Surur, an extensive Saljuq history.
