Having been blessed with a rich, full life, I must with all due humility confess that very little moves me anymore. I've seen and experienced the self-sacrifice and beauty that only the deepest of loves can bestow. I have been poisoned and hardened by man's inhumanity to man.
Having said that, imagine my soul-stirring surprise when my friend Danny Cole sent me, almost apologetically, the first chapter of what became this book, seeking my opinion.
The thing was, you see, Danny Cole had never before written anything in the way of books, short stories, poetry, etc. But he had something he needed to express and about halfway through his twenty-second year of sobriety he felt the time had come to express it.
Not that he isn't a creative artist. Anyone who has ever seen the photographs of his loving tribute to his daughter Gloria, named Gloria Gardens, that he designed and constructed stone by stone in his back yard couldn't help but realize that. Anyone who has ever seen his photography ...
"This book represents a monumental effort to review and correlate much of the accumulated knowledge of the subtle energy systems... Such a book could only be written by a person who has had the life-long personal experiences which Dr. Motoyama so generous shares with the reader. These experiences provide step-by-step illustration of unfolding and expanding consciousness. The book is necessary reading for all serious students of the subject of consciousness." - George W. Meek
It is an outstanding book from both the scientific and spiritual points of view. It is the unique record of the pioneering experiments which presents clear, electro-physiological evidence of the existence of the network of chakras and nadis which form the infra-structure of the subtle energies existing in the pranic and psychic dimensions, which underlie and activate the physical, material body of man. The experiments in the book successfully integrate the subjective and objective dimensions of knowledge, and ...

Effie Pitts is not your typical hero of a crime novel.
Looking for her husband who disappeared during a bachelor trip across the border, Effie stumbles onto a hidden connection between a series of crimes plaguing the citizens of Plattsburgh, New York.

In his preface to this book, Wells forecast (incorrectly) that A Modern Utopia would be the last of a series of volumes on social problems that began in 1901 with Anticipations and included Mankind in the Making (1903). But unlike those non-fictional works, A Modern Utopia is presented as a tale told by a sketchily described character known only as the Owner of the Voice. In the book, two travelers fall into a space-warp and suddenly find themselves upon a Utopian Earth controlled by a single World Government.

Banished before his final year of medical training for pushing harder on the boundaries of scientific knowledge than any student at St. Bartholomew's Hospital, the mysterious and driven Simon McKensie has blurred the lines between research and criminality and must now choose between exile to the rural country village of Wells, or the hangman's noose.

When you can't hear... death comes silently.
Scotland Yard detective Valerie Crowther is assigned to investigate the murder of a student at a university for the Deaf in London, England. The murder investigation coincides with a deadly flu virus outbreak, resulting in the university being quarantined from the outside world.
When more Deaf students are murdered, it becomes clear there is a serial killer operating within the sealed-off university. A chilling cat-and-mouse game evolves as the unknown killer targets Valerie and the virus claims more lives.
A stunning, claustrophobic, "whodunit" murder mystery, Silent Fear (A novel inspired by true crimes) is the eighth novel by father-and-son writing team Lance & James Morcan. Included is a commentary by Deaf filmmaker Brent Macpherson on the unique aspects of Deaf culture the story covers. Together, the Morcans and Macpherson are currently developing a feature film adaptation of Silent Fear.
This novel is subtitled "A Romance," but in the preface the author explains: "I use the term [romance] playfully in one of its several older senses, particularly that of a story of action with a heroic protagonist and a strong love interest... I might cite as a model for my own use of the word the haunting classic of a later period, R. D. Blackmore's Lorna Doone, which is in fact subtitled A Romance of Exmoor. The present book, then, could be called A Romance of Hampshire."
The book is set in Antigua and England, 1810-1814. The jacket copy reads: "An epic, a romance, and a mystery, Edmund Persuader is the tale of a man both blessed and cursed by his powers of persuasion. Those powers seem to perform the greatest wonders when they work him ill, yet fail when he needs them most-until he can emerge from the depths of moral error and climb toward the exaltation of redeeming love."
Highly recommended to those who love Jane Austen's works, though it is not a clone or a sequel. Readers ...

REVISED SECOND EDITION
This is the story of Hatshepsut, the ancient Egyptian princess and queen who was crowned king, and for more than twenty years ruled on the Horus Throne of the Living as the Female Falcon. The name Hatshepsut chose for herself can be read as "Maat is the Ka of Re" which translated means "The True and Beautiful Manifestation of the Sun's Divine Life-force." A more poetic but still accurate rendition is "Truth is the Soul of the Sun."
Before becoming Pharaoh, Hatshepsut served as God's Wife of Amun, an important economic and spiritual office created by her grandfather that holds the key to her mysterious and unprecedented power. Maatkare was not only a charismatic political leader, she was a mystic who inspired the wholehearted devotion of brilliant men. One of them was Senmut, a commoner she elevated to unparalleled heights of authority. But her most influential advocate was Hapuseneb, the High Priest of Amun and the Governor of the South. Hapuseneb served under ...

Against the better judgment of his partner, therapist, and ex-wife, he digs into past suspects that he had previously given up on. Vengeful parents? Ruthless drug syndicate he had stripped apart and put behind bars? Or an entirely new suspect he'd missed? One new question, one new answer. Pull the thread and follow Tom on his journey of heartache as he stops at nothing to get his daughter back.
A barrister becomes a detective when his friend disappears at an English manor in this classic Victorian novel.
Beautiful Lucy Graham charms every man she meets, including wealthy widower Sir Michael Audley. After they marry, he refurbishes his mansion to create a little palace for his new wife, where her future seems bright. Her past, however, is shrouded in darkness, and she'll do whatever it takes to keep it hidden.
Then Sir Michael's nephew, Robert, a London barrister, comes for a visit with his good friend George Talboys for a week of fishing. But when George mysteriously vanishes, there's no time to relax.

Funnier than Kelly's Heroes, darker in places than Catch-22, and more irreverent than M*A*S*H, this satirical WW I Royal Flying Corps memoir will leave the reader in stitches and historians shaking their heads. The most aggressive pilot wins. Lieutenant-Colonel Tucker racks up quite a score, and it's not just enemy aircraft either, for the tall and heavily decorated Will Tucker. He likes the ladies and they like him. The fact that he flies against the Red Baron and lives to write his memoirs is just a bonus.
She sold herself for rough play and career-making story -- not murder!

Garrett still mourns the loss of his beloved, but the past is hard to let go when it's stalking him. The killer is obsessed with Garrett, and becomes incensed when his target claims a slave. When Celia's ruse is discovered, Garrett sends her away. The killer decides she may not be as hated as Garrett claims and will be the perfect route to lure out his prey.
Thomás Stephanopoulos, one of Garrett's closest friends and confidants, recognizes something special in Celia, a darkness that mirrors his own. After Garrett abandons her, will she accept the lure ...
I should never have jumped that fence, and I most definitely should never have kissed her.
Living on the streets, I made some hard decisions to stay alive. I signed a contract with the devil, and because of that, I choose to live alone.

I want to save the beautiful woman next door with the sad eyes from his abuse. I want to take her away from all of this, but what do I have to offer when my hands are stained with the sins I've committed?
How can I offer a broken woman peace and safety when those two things don't exist in my world?

Germinal is the novel written by Émile Zola. This novel is often considered Zola's masterpiece and one of the most significant novels in the French tradition. The storyline depicts an uncompromisingly harsh and realistic story of a coalminers' strike in northern France in the 1860s. The title itself has a symbolic meaning for the storyline: the word Germen is a Latin word which means "seed" and it transcends into the novel, which describes the hope for a better future that seeds amongst the miners.
A match decreed by fate. A love awakened by magic...

Twenty-one years ago, his grandmother, then head witch of the Castillo clan, helped the McAllister clan defeat a dark wizard... for a price. The payment, Miranda McAllister, is now on her way to be his bride. A medieval arrangement, but there's no naysaying Rafe's mother, who is intent on carrying out his grandmother's wishes.

"Here's a delightful book -- a crime novel in the style of Elmore Leonard or Quentin Tarantino, with plenty of humor balanced by real introspective characterization. Our protagonist is a dishwasher promoted to enforcer (aka: hitman) at the mid-level of a larger organized crime structure. He does a lot of killing and disposing of bodies, but he remains a sympathetic character throughout thanks to the humor of his narration, the tragedy of his backstory (which we get little by little), and his own likable disposition." -- Joe Squance

Angels and demons provide the "shadows" of influence on this world from the spiritual realm, as we see played out in the lives of two young girls and their families in a small Northern Minnesota town. One of these girls, Katie Maki , has a scientific gift in her brain that, if developed, will be used to help alleviate the suffering of humanity in some major way, and Satan has discovered the existence of this gift. His "fallen angels," or demons, are instructed to quench it by means of moral corruption, if possible, and if not, by death. Enter a sociopath with a motive for murder. He's the demons' backup plan in case moral corruption doesn't work.
On the side of the angels is Julie Marcucci, the young widowed neighbor of the parents of Jake Maki, Katie's father. She loves twelve-year-old Katie, and the Makis appreciate her influence on the girl, hoping it will counteract that of Katie's mom, who owns and runs a bar where Katie works in the kitchen until she's old enough to serve ...
It's common enough for a book of dragons to center on a young wizard harnessing his power, or a knightly lad (usually a farmhand) learning to vanquish evil. The Merlins and Arthurs, if you will. Too rarely do we get to glimpse the other side of the coin. The Madam Mims and Morgan le Fays certainly had their own humble beginnings, but those stories are seldom told. Those climbs to power are somehow neglected.
But within the pages of The Tatterwing Chronicles you'll find such a story. A story of a young girl taking her first steps to becoming a notorious witch known as Tatterwing. A story of her rise to power, her flirtation with the darkness, and her tendency to ride the line between hero and villain as the odds stack against her.
Book one finds young Medo as a child of thirteen living deep in the bowels of the swamp, before she's seen the outside world. Before anyone has heard her name.
When the ghosts of his past become real, his next stop is Hell.
Jack Devins is a doting father and up-and-coming creative director at a Manhattan ad agency when a tragic accident takes the life of his beloved infant daughter, Kelly. The pain and guilt threaten to destroy him and everything that remains of value, including his family's love for him and his high-powered job.
His alcoholic descent toward rock bottom is further complicated by strange occurrences - his watches and clocks begin ominously stopping at 1:20, his daughter's voice calls to him from the darkness of subway tunnels, and a homeless vagrant who hides his disfigured face behind a mask starts stalking Jack. Intent on getting to the bottom of these horrors, Jack is plunged into a world he never dreamed existed.
As he slips through the cracks of reality, he lands in Trainland, a subterranean labyrinth beneath New York City where the souls of suicides wander; a hellish crumbling megacity that is home to all sorts of ...
