Book excerpt: Short-listed for the 2005 CLA Young Adult Canadian Book Award Sixteen-year-old Simon has always been considered odd. Three years ago, a skateboarding accident caused some minor brain damage and made him a little stranger. His career-driven parents mostly leave him alone, and he spends much of his time living in his imagination. When Andrea, whom no one else can see, appears to Simon in class, he is fascinated by her and strikes up a friendship, even though he knows she may be pure hallucination - he’s had imaginary friends before. Andrea says she is there to "help" him, but before the story ends, Simon discovers that it is he who needs to help Andrea, not the other way around.

Book excerpt: From Arthur Laurents, playwright, screenwriter, director—a mesmerizing book about theater, the art, the artist, the insider, the outsider—and the making of two of the greatest musicals of the American stage, West Side Story and Gypsy. It is a book profoundly enriched by the author’s two loves, love for the theater and love for his partner of fifty-two years, Tom Hatcher, who shared and inspired every aspect of his life and his work. Laurents writes about the musicals he directed, I Can Get It for You Wholesale, its producer David Merrick (the “Abominable Showman”), and its (very young) stars Barbra Streisand and Elliott Gould . . . He writes about Stephen Sondheim’s Anyone Can Whistle, which starred Angela Lansbury and Lee Remick, marking the debut for each in musical theater. He summons up the challenges and surprises that came with the making of La Cage aux Folles, the first big Broadway musical that was gay and glad to be. He writes in rich detail about his most recent production of Gypsy, how it began as an act of love, a love that spread through the entire company and resulted in a Gypsy unlike any other. And about his new bilingual production of West Side Story. And he talks, as well, about the works of other directors—Fiddler on the Roof; Kiss Me, Kate; Spring Awakening; Street Scene; The Phantom of the Opera; LoveMusik; Sweeney Todd. Moving, exhilarating, provocative—a portrait of an artist working with other artists; a unique close-up look at today’s American musical theater by a man who’s been at its red-hot center for more than five decades.

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: An ideal family is targeted for death by the least likely enemy, who plotted their demise from behind bars.... A sexual predator hides behind multiple fake identities, eluding police for years while his past victims live in fear that he will hunt them down.... A modest preacher's wife confesses to shooting her husband after an argument -- but there's more to her shattering story than meets the eye. These and other true cases are analyzed with stunning clarity in a page-turning collection you won't be able to put down. Included in this volume are stories of a victim burned beyond recognition - spontaneous human combustion? - impossible - and yet no one else seemed to enter or exit; a man who was a woman who was a man, whose con games in a small community led to murder; a "counterfeit priest" who wasn't a priest at all; a lifetime rapist; and the strangest case ever to hit Montana.

Book excerpt: A nameless man with a feather-light grip on reality, a loner, a drifter, a thinker, but certainly not a doer, seeks therapy through the recordings of his highly lucid dreams.

The Last Ditto is an account of one man's journey through decades of deep sleep exploration, into the outer reaches of the subconscious, to the very fringes of death. Exploring the psychology of being, with the aid of a whistleblower from the other side, delving into the effects of the laws of observation, the power of received truth over the subconscious, and their major contribution to a worldwide existential crisis. The Last Ditto is the story of a man who has broken ranks with humanity, to seek an exit from reality, and leave this place behind, forever.

Download Free The Beam Season Two PDF by Sean Platt Full Book and published by Sterling & Stone LLC. This book was released on 2014-04-30 with total page 684 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: From the bestselling authors of the Invasion and Yesterday's Gone series comes The Beam, a disturbing philosophical exploration of the future of our hyperconnected world. This chilling, intricately plotted series is set in a futuristic dystopia where politics and technology have widened the gap between haves and have-nots. Power is in the mind. The mind is in the network. As the NAU’s "Shift" approaches, the Directorate and Enterprise parties are doing whatever they can both on-Beam and off- to win the citizen’s minds. The Beam itself, however, seems to be evolving. As more and more people become addicted to connectivity, a question arises: Does the Beam serve our minds ... or do our minds serve the Beam? Meanwhile, using politics as cover, an organization is pushing human enhancements further than they were ever meant to go — and maybe more than the struggling NAU with its hyperconnected minds can hope to survive. ★★★★★ "Another homerun for Platt and Truant. Usually second books in a series are the weak link -- that didn't happen in The Beam. Just like the first season I got sucked in to this book and told the kids to just feed themselves poptarts and leave mommy alone already so she could read. An amazing series!" -- Patricia Eimer ★★★★★ "I loved the first season, but this did such a great job of fleshing out the story line that I'm already champing at the bit for the next season." -- BruceIn Baghdad ★★★★★ "A real high-tech futuristic political thriller with a great storyline and a cliff-hanger ending that leaves you wanting for more. Can't wait to read season 3." -- beachbaby ★★★★★ "For thousands of years humans got around on foot or horses. In seventy years we went from that to visiting the moon. Now we may visit Mars in my lifetime. So the technology discussed in this book is definitely on the horizon... So this is a great book and I highly recommend it." -- programmerx ★★★★★ "Johnny and Sean hit a grand slam with Season 2 of The Beam! I enjoyed the futuristic, funny and smart thrill ride that was Season 1 but Season 2 is so much better... If you like political thrillers or Sci-Fi, The Beam is for you." -- Brian Saemann Truant and Platt deliver deep political intrigue and incisive social commentary along with a generous helping of big philosophical themes through engaging, multifaceted characters and rich worldbuilding. If you enjoyed Altered Carbon and The Fifth Element, you'll feel right at home in the world of The Beam.

Book excerpt: While today's real world slowly grapples with the causes and consequences of the BP oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico and the flood of illegal immigrants crossing the southern border of the United States, Stan Rogers, the entrepreneurial hero of Don Anderson's trilogy (Deadly Calm; Seas the Day; and Golden Results) employs a different method. Successful and wealthy due to his skills and vision in the world of technology, Rogers seeks to give back by addressing the global issues of the day. Rogers already has had a great impact on the issues of population control, drug running, illegal immigration, and unsustainable fishing practices. In Golden Results, Rogers turns his attention to energy. Combining both realism and idealism, Rogers cuts through the usual bureaucratic red tape while playing by a set of rules that will address a level field. Not everyone in the story does. Political intrigue includes red tape designed to trip-up Rogers and to marginalize his ideas and vision, while powerful cartel leaders, seeing Rogers' energy project as a threat to their drug routes, play by a different set of rules, trailing death behind them as they try to kill the project. The venue is Baja California and the ocean with the array of fish that live within. Whether the challenger takes on dorado, speedy tuna, strong trevelly, or spectacular tarpon in native waters-or monstrous billfish prowling the oceans with weapon unsheathed-the chance of success or failure looms at any time. So it is when Stan fishes; so it is when Stan addresses a global problem. A strong sense of conservation winds through the story like a line pulled from the reel by a powerful fish yet linked to a fisherman who knows and values the integrity of the sea and its inhabitants.

Book excerpt: Has modern physics proven that the universe was created by absolutely nothing? Absolutely not! Have modern cosmology and Darwinian evolution eliminated the need for God? Absolutely not! Have the new atheists demonstrated the irrelevance of theology and philosophy in the pursuit of Truth? Not even close! The first of the four-volume Eternal Harmony series, The Unity of Truth in God demonstrates decisively the powerful convergence of God-made religion and genuine science as well as faith and reason in the unity of truth in the one, true, triune God of the Holy Bible. The Tower of Modern Scientism is concurrently demolished so that not one scientistic stone is left standing upon another. Can the truths of modern science and God-made religion be brought into Eternal Harmony? Most definitely! Are human life and the cosmos meaningful and purposeful? Yes! Can you personally inherit eternal life in the new heavens and the new earth and be with God Himself? Absolutely! Join physicist Dr. Ron R. Rickards on a sacred journey up the Mountain of Truth, which begins on common scientific and religious ground and ends with the most exalted truths of modern science and God-made religion coexisting peacefully in Eternal Harmony. By incorporating the lyric sheets to a dozen original songs, The Unity of Truth in God engages the reader as all human beings truly deserve to be engaged: in the fullness of our humanitythat is, in heart, soul, and mind. The soundtrack is available through Amazon, iTunes and other popular outlets.

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Phantom Limbs and Body Integrity Identity Disorder discusses the conditions of Phantom Limb Syndrome and Body Integrity Identity Disorder together for the first time, exploring examples from literature, film, and psychoanalysis to re-ground theories of the body in material experience. The book outlines the ways in which PLS and BIID involve a feeling of rupture underlined by a desire for wholeness, using the metaphor of the mirror-box (a therapeutic device that alleviates phantom limb pain) to examine how fiction is fundamentally linked to our physical and psychical realities. Using diverse examples from theoretical and fictional works, including thinkers such as Sigmund Freud, Jacques Lacan, Maurice Blanchot, D.W. Winnicott, and Georges Perec, and films by Powell and Pressburger and Quentin Tarantino, each chapter offers a detailed exploration of the mind/body relationship and experiences of fragmentation, bodily ownership, and symbolic reconstitution. By tracing these concepts, the monograph demonstrates ways in which fiction can enable us to understand the psychosomatic conditions of PLS and BIID more thoroughly, while providing new ways of reading psychoanalysis, literary theory, and fictional works. The first book to analyse BIID in relation to PLS, Phantom Limbs and Body Integrity Identity Disorder will be essential reading for academics and literary readers interested in the body, psychoanalysis, English literature, literary theory, film, and disability.

The cool, hipster carnival troupe I infiltrate is as far from the circus I grew up in as you can get. But carnival folk have long memories and the trail of grisly murders tracing this troupe's journeys reawakens old fears. Soon, I find myself the target of a demonic killer with an evil intent that goes far beyond murder. Can I slay this demon, uncover the troupe’s dark underbelly and stop the unleashing of hell before I become the next victim? Keywords: urban fantasy, demon hunter, carnival, paranormal

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Lydia Netzer, the award-winning author of Shine Shine Shine, weaves a mind-bending, heart-shattering love story that asks, "Can true love exist if it's been planned from birth?" Like a jewel shimmering in a Midwest skyline, the Toledo Institute of Astronomy is the nation's premier center of astronomical discovery and a beacon of scientific learning for astronomers far and wide. Here, dreamy cosmologist George Dermont mines the stars to prove the existence of God. Here, Irene Sparks, an unsentimental scientist, creates black holes in captivity. George and Irene are on a collision course with love, destiny and fate. They have everything in common: both are ambitious, both passionate about science, both lonely and yearning for connection. The air seems to hum when they're together. But George and Irene's attraction was not written in the stars. In fact their mothers, friends since childhood, raised them separately to become each other's soulmates. When that long-secret plan triggers unintended consequences, the two astronomers must discover the truth about their destinies, and unravel the mystery of what Toledo holds for them—together or, perhaps, apart. Lydia Netzer combines a gift for character and big-hearted storytelling, with a sure hand for science and a vision of a city transformed by its unique celestial position, exploring the conflicts of fate and determinism, and asking how much of life is under our control and what is pre-ordained in the heavens in her novel How to Tell Toledo from the Night Sky.
