Department 19 (Department Nineteen)
Jamie Carpenter's life will never be the same. His father is dead, his mother is missing, and he was just rescued by an enormous man named Frankenstein. Jamie is brought to Department 19, where he is pulled into a secret organization responsible for policing the supernatural, founded more than a century ago by Abraham Van Helsing and the other survivors of Dracula. Aided by Frankenstein's monster, a beautiful vampire girl with her own agenda, and the members of the agency, Jamie must attempt to save his mother from a terrifyingly powerful vampire.
Department 19 takes us through history, across Europe, and beyond - from the cobbled streets of Victorian London to prohibition-era New York, from the icy wastes of Arctic Russia to the treacherous mountains of Transylvania. Part modern thriller, part classic horror, it's packed with mystery, mayhem, and a level of suspense that makes a Darren Shan novel look like a romantic comedy.
Pittacus Lore and Will Hill: Author One-on-One
Pittacus Lore is Lorien’s ruling Elder. He has been on Earth for the last twelve years, preparing for the war that will decide Earth’s fate. His whereabouts are unknown. I Am Number Four is his first book. Recently he was able to ask some questions of fellow author Will Hill. Read the resulting Amazon exclusive interview below, or turn the tables to see what happened when Will interviewed Pittacus.
Pittacus: From the very beginning of Department Nineteen, Jamie is thrown into an intense and dangerous covert mission yet he is resilient and brave. Who or what was the inspiration for Jamie?
Will: Jamie starts out as a bit of an everyman, who gets drawn into something much bigger than him, something he doesn’t really understand. It’s a long, proud tradition in genre fiction – a big part of the reason that Harry Potter and Star Wars are so popular is because people want to believe that they might be extraordinary, that an owl might arrive inviting them to Hogwarts, or they might discover that they are actually a Jedi.
As a result, he was inspired by all the reluctant heroes that went before him. I’ve just always loved that type of character and I wanted Jamie to follow in that tradition.
Pittacus: The action and fight scenes in your book are thrilling and believable. It was easy to imagine everything that took place. How did you write such intense and credible battle scenes?
Will: I really don’t know! I’m the least violent person you could imagine, and I would run a mile if I had to face anything that either Jamie or Number Four have to face.
To be honest, I thought a lot about the geography of the action (for some of the big sequences in Department Nineteen: The Rising, I actually drew little maps of where everyone started and ended – they looked like a football coach’s whiteboard!) – I think it makes it easier for the reader to let their imagination run riot if they aren’t having to try and work out who is standing where, and who has moved next to whom.
Pittacus: The current trend in paranormal fiction is to put a new spin on the traditional vampire legends but you’ve gone back to the source material. Why was this important to you? What do you think it brings to the book?
Will: The vampires in Department Nineteen are not completely traditional – crosses don’t work on them, or holy water, or running water, or garlic – but I wanted to use the two central aspects, the need to drink blood and the inability to go in the sun, to try and do something that was new and fresh, while still being very respectful to the classic horror stories.
My hope is that it all gives Department Nineteen a sense of history, and place; I want it to feel like this organization has been fighting monsters since long before anyone who reads it was born.
Pittacus: Who do you think would win in a fight, Dracula or a Mogadorian?
Will: In a straight one on one fight? Dracula, every time. He’s too fast, too strong, too old and cunning. However, the Mogadorians don’t ever seem to hunt alone, do they?
Pittacus: Jamie is skilled at running covert missions. How do you think he could have helped Number Four in his quest?
Will: Even if Jamie could take his T-bone and all his other weapons into Number Four’s world, I don’t think they’d be much help against the Mogadorians. But he would stand alongside Number Four until the very end – he’d have been there in the school and in the forest, fighting and doing whatever it took to help his friend. Loyalty is his best quality!
Pittacus: Sarah in I Am Number Four is in love with an alien. Jamie in Department Nineteen is falling for a vampire named Larissa. What makes interspecies love just so difficult?
Will: I’m assuming you don’t mean anatomically?
I think what both relationships show is that all love is difficult, not just supernatural, inter-species love. But hopefully what they also show is that it’s what’s inside a person that really matters; Sarah doesn’t fall for Number Four because he’s an alien, just as Jamie doesn’t fall for Larissa because she’s a vampire. Its part of it, I think, in both cases – the mysterious always tends to be attractive – but I think ultimately they fall in with the people themselves, not the incredible things they can do.
Pittacus: No spoilers, but what may Jamie be facing next in Department Nineteen: The Rising?
Will: The final page of Department Nineteen, which I’m certainly not going to spoil, gives a big clue as to what Jamie is going to find himself up against in The Rising. It’s going to get very, very bad for Jamie and his friends, I’m afraid – where Department Nineteen was a rescue mission, The Rising is very much a fight for survival…
Selfridge Air Show 2009 National Gaurd, Marines, Reserves, Air Force, Army. Michigan.
Mike found his passion for aviation at the age of 10 after his Dad took him to his first Air Show. At the age of 14, Mike took a job at the airport washing airplanes and cleaning hangars just to be around airplanes. Later, he traded his work for flying lessons and received his Pilots License on his 17th birthday.
Mike’s been flying ever since.
Thirty years later, Mike has accumulated more than 20,000 hours of flight time of which at least 2,000 hours is aerobatics. Since that day Mike saw his first air show, he has followed his dream to fly aerobatics and now for more than a decade, Mike has entertained audiences throughout the world with his air show performances.
Mike’s performance has been described as aggressive, extreme aerobatics where he hangs his plane right on the edge of it’s limitations. With lots of smoke and a loud throaty engine, he climbs and tumbles his Plane seemingly out of control, only to dive for the ground and pull up again for the next outrageous maneuver. At a youthful age of 47, Mike has the experience and personality that fits perfect as an extreme sports entertainer.
Happily married to Tammy, with four children and two golden retrievers, Mike manages several corporate flight departments in the Minneapolis area. Below are just a few of Mike’s aerobatic accomplishments.

The first-ever inside look at DARPA—the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency—the maverick and controversial group whose futuristic work has had amazing civilian and military applications, from the Internet to GPS to driverless cars
America's greatest idea factory isn't Bell Labs, Silicon Valley, or MIT's Media Lab. It's the secretive, Pentagon-led agency known as DARPA. Founded by Eisenhower in response to Sputnik and the Soviet space program, DARPA mixes military officers with sneaker-wearing scientists, seeking paradigm-shifting ideas in varied fields—from energy, robotics, and rockets to peopleless operating rooms, driverless cars, and planes that can fly halfway around the world in just hours. DARPA gave birth to the Internet, GPS, and mind-controlled robotic arms. Its geniuses define future technology for the military and the rest of us.
Michael Belfiore was given unprecedented access to write this first-ever popular account of DARPA. Visiting research sites across the country, he watched scientists in action and talked to the creative, fearlessly ambitious visionaries working for and with DARPA. Much of DARPA's work is classified, and this book is full of material that has barely been reported in the general media. In fact, DARPA estimates that only 2 percent of Americans know much of anything about the agency. This fascinating read demonstrates that DARPA isn't so much frightening as it is inspiring—it is our future.
