Birds and Other Dreamers: Poems (new poetry Book 1) by K. B. Marie (Timberlane Press) 4.5 Stars (5 Reviews)    Price verified 4 minutes ago

This is the dream. I am a comet, stardust breath and spectral tail ablaze. In the blackest corner of a starless sky, I pace alone. Through a forgotten orbit out of desperation for the familiar, in loyalty to a rhythm I cannot comprehend, a millennium at a time. Infinity. You are born, and in that instant my comet heart hears the first notes of our song and sets course for Earth. By the power of dream logic somehow ice is exchanged for bone. Stardust settles into green eyes. Still it takes me 27 years to move this body into your orbit. But the homecoming feels familiar, expected, as if I've only just left and come back having forgotten something important, until I wake crying, begging. I don't want to return to the cold dark of space alone. Explaining I can't bear to spend another millennium out there, knowing you may or may not be born, knowing orbits can change and I will have to lose you again -- search for you again. In our bed, you smile. You kiss each wet cheek and tell me it was only a dream. But it isn't, I say. This life is the dream. - k.b. marie, "preface: a comet, dreaming" This collection of fifty illustrated poems are a journey, an exploration of love and all its entanglements: attraction, fear, loss, and redemption.

The Awakening (The Fempiror Chronicles Book 1) by George Willson 5.0 Stars (1 Review)    Price verified 36 minutes ago

A dormant power. An outcast warrior. An unwilling victim. An ancient order. After centuries of peace and solitude, the Fempiror are awakening. Zechariah lived alone on the outskirts of a little town with his life behind him. He once believed this area held a secret he sought to uncover, but after years of silence, he had decided to live out his year quietly. Then, a scream rent the night air which caused all the old memories to come flooding back. Unable to find the source, he continued looking the following evening when a second scream sounded, and he discovered the ancient order he had been seeking had resurfaced by attacking people to bring them into their fold. He clashed swords with the attacker, and when the battle yielded no answers, he struck down his opponent and took the victim under his wing. Zechariah learned the victim's name was David, and he had just asked his beloved's father for his daughter's hand in marriage. Unfortunately, the attack had changed David from a human to another species called Fempiror, of which Zechariah was also a part. This meant that David could no longer return home to rejoin his family or his beloved but instead, had to remain with Zechariah as he traveled to the capital city of the Fempiror to inform the council of the threat their race was now going to face. When the council refused to hear Zechariah's pleas, he took it upon himself to assemble his own group of Fempiror who believed him to track down the rogue order and attempt to stop it before it started again. When they learned that their enemy had been hiding near David's hometown, Zechariah's group moved immediately to engage them. There, they discovered the old order had amassed a considerable army but had done so in the home of a third order of peaceful Fempiror called the Elewo who had grown weary of their unwanted guests and joined forces with Zechariah to get rid of their mutual enemy. During the final battle, David decided to return home, and as he was ...

My spectacular Alpha Sierra, a helical wonder, mystified in bright green and dark purple swirls, sprinkled with trillions upon trillions of pulsing stars, forming millions of solar systems. Not only remarkably beautiful but also incredibly massive, known as the third-largest galaxy in this universe and yet within your stimulating allure there is stowed away a tiny, decaying planet, Indio. A planet barely kept awake by Magija, a weak life force that only I could manipulate. A mysterious power once used by the ancient Indigos -- humanoids that walked the face of Indio before any empires or wars. I have honed this ancient mystery and given birth to greater power; a beauty I have coined Cymaga. And with this greater power, I have made you the splendor and envy of all . Even though it was I who initiated your ending, each faction contributed to your downfall. One notable factor was the Kentila Empire, the so-called ruling class of Indio, whose emperor I kept alive with my knowledge and my greatness and my lust for manipulation. And what did my vices birth? Homecity, my utopian experiment, formed to birth a new beginning; one without jealousy, hate, or sadness. Ha, but the sadness. I could never cure it. I tried by giving Homecity the Glitch, but of course, that too would be abused, and my magnificent achievement would be turned against them like a virus, as a punishment for their disobedience. Even the Landers -- those who first abandoned my vision and deserted the city's sectors in its earlier days of construction -- even they continued to speak of its majesty. They recount stories of its power, wishing they still had access to its infinite knowledge. They were, unworthy, and never understood my vision. And Mother, I call your name with blandness in my mouth. I gave you life when you hung so dearly by a thread. But what thanks did you gift me with, after I made you the mother to all my living creations? No gratitude at all, not a whisper of thanks -- even after ...

Delayed Reaction by Olivia Diamond 5.0 Stars (2 Reviews)    Price verified 2 hours ago

Jacob Wherly, an aging Vietnam veteran, shocked out of his staid existence as an Illinois highway patrolman, begins to live his life as he sees fit outside the established norms of his rural community. This self-styled buffoon befriends a teenage boy who is steeped in religious fundamentalism. Each seeks to convert the other to his world view -- young Lenny to lead Jacob toward acceptance of Jesus as his savior and Jacob to nudge Lenny through humor toward an awareness that the unexamined life is not worth living. This comedic novel's protagonist exemplifies what it means to be a baby boomer in the 21st century, suggesting what legacy those post World War II babies might offer to their grandchildren's generation and taking a hard look at the role of war and fundamentalist Christianity in American culture. The reader along the way may also begin to consider parallels between the Vietnam War and our current ventures in Afghanistan through the comic lens of Jacob, who dyes his hair and his house a flaming orange and surrounds himself with cats variously named for persons who figured in the Vietnam era -- Madame Nhu, Ho Chi Minh, Melvin Laird and Robert McNamara. This light-hearted yarn on serious subjects will both regale and give the reader pause for thought.

In this epic and unique love story set in the wild mountains of West Virginia, a young woman and her unlikely friends find their way through multiple job hazards and terrible working conditions to achieve the unexpected. Andrea never thought she'd live in a camp trailer or work outdoors in inhospitable climates; but eager to leave the stress and tedium of grad-school behind, she sets off with her estranged grandpa, Buck, to build a pipeline through the rugged mountains of West Virginia. She's determined to understand the man and the family divide that drove him away. Once the job starts, she forms an unlikely friendship with Nick, the rough and tumble foreman of the bending crew. Most of the guys aren't willing to accept her, and Rooster, the handsome, cocky, tie-in foreman, is determined that she's a ridiculous distraction. But building a pipeline is fraught with danger, fatigue, and confrontation as egos collide. Caught up in the all-male social microcosm, Andrea can't help but understand the pecking order, and she's at the bottom. Being a woman makes it even more unlikely she'll be accepted. Buck proves to be a taskmaster, but a kindhearted teddy-bear of a man under a gruff exterior, and Andrea comes to love him, opening herself up to the pain of his past. Rooster and Andrea are drawn to each other, yet they know an on-the-job romance will only cause problems. Rooster is tormented by his own past, and determined to prove himself to Buck, a pipeline ledged. Messing with the old man's granddaughter is a line Rooster refuses to cross. But as Andrea shows herself to be a hard worker and a valuable member of the crew, she earns Rooster's respect and he can't keep his distance. It seems the couple can't go back, they can't move forward, and they can't let go. Both will have to make sacrifices and take a chance on ruining their credibility in order to be together.

He spends some time on the internet trying to find out the language it is written in. He discovers it is in the Cornish Language. The writing is the diary of Kenan Ennor Lanyon. Kenan is a 17 year old man, who with 7 other Cornishmen, is leaving Cornwall to go to America in 1835. John gets gripped with Kenan's diary and spends the next few days translating it. The diary tells of their ocean crossing to America in an old 30 foot Cornish Lugger they have patched up for the journey. It tells of the settlement where the men decide to live and the start of their life there. At this point the diary stops. John investigates a little more the Cornish link of the diary.

They stay at a small boarding house and with help from a couple of locals start to dig into the history surrounding Kenan's diary. They discover on a 50 year old map a name which requires more research and a visit to the land agent opens up a whole new side to the diary. John and Jen follow through this line of research which takes them all the way to Boston before they discover more of what happened to Kenan. The possibility of their being another part of the diary increases interest too. John and Jen's arrival in McKenzie and Boston signals a change in something for the first time since Kenan's death.

The play is a wonderful mix of history and ironic commentary, one of two plays of Shakespeare's that is entirely in verse (the other one is RICHARD II, which he wrote just before KING JOHN), and it's tragically poetic and satiric in equal measure. Shakespeare never wrote anything else quite like it. If he wrote better plays, they were also different kinds of plays: this one is unique.

Blood on Their Hands by Bob Brink (TouchPoint Press) 4.5 Stars (21 Reviews)    Price verified one hour ago

A racist attorney faces a crisis of conscience -- and danger -- when reluctantly defending a black man brutally beaten by police and charged with resisting arrest. In its compelling portrayal of police brutality and racial injustice, Blood on Their Hands is unlike other legal thrillers in its uncannily perfect timing as the country was torn asunder in spring/summer 2020 by police mistreatment of blacks. Further, it is one of a kind in its introduction of a controversial legal conundrum. But that enigma -- whether an attorney who witnesses a police beating may defend the victim -- takes a back seat to the novel's depiction of racial animosity. Police brutality toward blacks is the salient, and altogether timely, problem addressed in Blood on Their Hands by both the legal system and the book's characters in the racial attitudes they harbor. The novel explores these bigoted feelings in depth. Hiram Garbuncle is a veteran criminal defense attorney -- as well as a racist, miserly alcoholic. His life revolves around hoarding money, following sports, pursuing sex, drinking -- and the prideful practice of law. Alec Monceau is a black man working to support his daughter's family in Trinidad. It is 2008, and his car carries an Obama bumper sticker. This political advertisement leads to a superfluous traffic stop and a brutal beating by police. It goes against Garbuncle's grain to defend a black man from a charge of violently resisting arrest, but he is so confident of winning that he is negligent in the jury selection, and a mistrial occurs. He then discovers incriminating evidence on the two cops, and his new challenge becomes how to keep himself and his client alive pending a new trial. Blood on Their Hands borrows themes from the movies Gran Torino and My Cousin Vinnie. It is a tale replete with both pathos and humor. Steeped in suspense, action, intrigue,violent episodes and yes, a bit of titillating sex, the story is leavened by a tragic love affair. ...
