Apart from Matthew's sayings of Jesus, all truly apostolic New Testament documents were originally penned down nearly two thousand years ago in a renovated street dialect called Koine Greek. This present volume is for critically discerning believers who want their apostolic writings to be understandable through a new, honest, satisfactorily revealing, functionally literal translation of the more conservative Majority Greek Text, the choice of which will be fully explained within. This new translation is also coupled together with a more limited canon which has been revisited to determine the true apostolicity of the documents we have. Instead of asking what books have been left out of the Bible, we should ask what books do not belong in the Bible. This translation also incorporates the latest results of the newly applied Shuffled Manuscript Theory. In utilizing this theory this book effectively re-presents in English for the first time in almost two millennia one dozen of the ...

Shakespeare's stage is a vampire's hunting ground.
Christopher Marlowe, poet and playwright, has played and lost his dangerous game of baiting England's nobles. Betrayed and murdered, he finds himself transformed within a far more ancient game, in which he and others hunt humans as prey -- while some of them hunt him. His only hope is the vampire who has resurrected him: Rósza la Loba, who traces her vampiric bloodline back to Alexander the Great.

It brought a frisson of sun-baked Californian menace to the wearying trudge down streets as cold and grey and wet as a drowned man's shadow, between doors that only opened, if they opened at all, on the desperate and despairing.

Who killed Jack Sullivan?
Welcome to Hamlet. Population: 192.
You can't find it on any map, GPS, or directions site. A small village tucked between a mountain and a valley, Hamlet is the sort of place where everyone knows everyone -- and their business, too. There's no television. No internet. No phones. Only one way in and, for the locals, barely any way out. The sheriff is the law, the only doctor moonlights as the coroner, and outsiders hardly ever come to town.
Murders are even rarer.

It was supposed to be a one night stop until the rain let up and Jack could figure out how to fix the tire -- until Tess lands herself in the local jail cell overnight and Jack is found dead in their hotel room the next morning.
There's no doubt it was murder, but with Sullivan's gentle wife having an airtight alibi, the sheriff has to ...
