It was you who died, and I who mourned, Or I who died and you who grieved. We shall be buried side by side In death's sweet embrace. Weep no more.
Author: Harry A. Wilmer
Wilmer points out how silence gives meaning to words, dreams, thought, action and music. From his long experience as a Jungian analyst, he weaves his ideas into an eminently practical treatise on the phenomenology of silence. With many references to literature as well as his personal life experiences and crises, he offers a readable and important new story of the universal and spiritual significance of silence in a world of jackhammer noise. - from the Preface by Joseph Henderson

What is “Christianity”? What’s it supposed to be? In a world where Trump, Obama, Putin, and Lady Gaga all claim Christianity as their spiritual home, it’s not an easy question to answer. Part memoir, part historical-theological analysis, Idiot, Sojourning Soul tells the story of one former skeptic’s exploration of Christian spirituality. Justin Rosolino was raised in a post-Christian context where all gods were up for grabs and all truth-claims equally dubious. While studying political theory in college, Justin found himself drawn to the writings of Augustine, Kierkegaard, and Martin Luther King Jr. Much to his surprise, he resonated with their profoundly Christian accounts of human nature, desire, lack, and love. With wit and scholarly precision, Idiot examines Christianity’s historical development, from its ancient beginnings to its current and confounding condition. The result is a must read for anyone who’s ever wondered what Jesus was really up to, and why contemporary Christianity bears so little semblance to its namesake.

Will she survive the attack of the White eyes soldiers and give her people reason to hope and fight? Or will she give up and die at the hands of the White eyes, according to the prophecy? Find out in Book three of The Eternity Series. "The Twin Souls is a vivid and intense novel comprised of two stories set in two Native American tribes. It is full of suspense and drama and is about the difficult circumstances under which lovers meet and the challenges they face later on due to sadistic people who target the heroines. There is a deeply spiritual way in which Holly Newhouse depicts her heroines. They both are extremely self sacrificing, caring and also brave. Their male counterparts are protective archetypal heroes with soft hearts. The twists in the story are gripping and the situations are very believable, making this work potentially popular in the historical and cultural genres. The narrative emphasises the theme of twin souls, their instant recognition and desperate desire to be with each other against all odds. Newhouse paints romance effortlessly in such a way as to allow it to be realistic, passionate, bold and transcendental. There is a wonderful closeness and merging that is achieved, and readers interested in close romance will enjoy the special qualities conferred on the characters, such as being able to feel each other’s emotions and thoughts, and being able to transfer pain when needed. Newhouse also handles love from other relationships, such as brotherly, fatherly and motherly love, with sincerity, realism and compassion. The book is artistic and spiritual without compromising on suspense and passion. This is a wonderful combination and I highly recommend this book to anyone interested in a bold cultural romance which is not pretentious and yet contains important ideals regarding the spiritual concept of male and female twin souls."

Things haven’t been going particularly well for humanity. A new civilization has risen from the ashes of the late 21st century End of Times, and it has thrived in the few remaining inhabitable highland areas of the planet, thanks mainly to the all-powerful State governance engineering a series of stunning advances in Artificial Intelligence. Something, however, is going horribly wrong on Planet 42. People are disappearing at an alarming rate, and the State is beset by a series of crippling scandals all the while most of its people slave away in something close to abject poverty. So much for the supposed socialist utopia. Andrew Weems is a scrawny young journalism student in The Highlands of Alba, once known as Scotland. He has a quirky, some would say annoying sense of humor and swears quite a lot. His best friend is John McGregor, an elite Alban college student, and his other friend is John’s girlfriend, Claire Renshaw, a talented cybercrimes student. In trying to find information on the death of her older sister, Claire hacks into some highly classified State data relating to something known as the Elyssium program, and the discovery sets in motion a chain of events that will lead them all on an epic journey encompassing kidnap, murder, assassination attempts, fishing, strange mushrooms, and the resultant sea monster, and other things. Ultimately, the shocking truth about the disappearances is exposed and this leads Claire to a confrontation with horrors, and evil beyond imagination. Except that it has been imagined, so … with horrors and evil beyond comprehension, instead.

The definitions skewer such targets as religion, the "right to life" movement, capitalism, marxism, the IRS, politicians of all stripes, and common euphemisms, as well as male-female relations and sexual attitudes, something which Bierce, writing in more conservative times, was not free to do. The book concludes with a lengthy appendix of the best 200 definitions from Bierce's The Devil's Dictionary.

When hot spots of extreme international crisis happen and the United States government cannot intercede, nor the CIA, NSA, or military special forces cannot be seen helping, only one other completely off-the-books agency can. That agency is none other than Black Reaper. Established during the Nixon presidency, this organization has operated with an unlimited black budget and behind the scenes for decades. They always succeed, even at a great personal cost to their brave agents, both men and women alike. The best of these agents is one Jerimiah Black. He’s young, cocky, brash, but a blunt instrument that does not fail and who could care less about ruffling anyone’s feathers. This new mission may be one even he cannot complete, as both great nations of India and Pakistan stand at the precipice of all-out war over a deadly chemical weapons attack in Goa, India, that has killed over 150,000 innocent men, women, and children. The world waits to see what happens, but one thing is for certain. Even if it means his own life must end, Jerimiah will succeed where nobody else can, one way or another.

Fear of death is nearly as inevitable as death itself, so we have used modern medicine and the funeral industry to create an ever-increasing distance between us and our mortality. But these interventions have stripped death of its mystery and mysticism. Taking readers on a journey through history, guided by the mystics, Awakened by Death shows us how our psychological and spiritual relationship to death has changed over time, and helps us to reclaim a healthy engagement with our own mortality. Ultimately, readers will gain a deeper understanding of how facing the fear of death, and embracing rather than eschewing its mysteries, can help us live richer, fuller lives.

A song holds the key to murder in this Dr. Hugh Westlake mystery from the Edgar Award–winning author who wrote the Peter Duluth series as Patrick Quentin. Patrick Quentin, best known for the Peter Duluth puzzle mysteries, also penned outstanding detective novels from the 1930s through the 1960s under other pseudonyms, including Q. Patrick and Jonathan Stagge. Anthony Boucher wrote: “Quentin is particularly noted for the enviable polish and grace which make him one of the leading American fabricants of the murderous comedy of manners; but this surface smoothness conceals intricate and meticulous plot construction as faultless as that of Agatha Christie.” The affluent Bray family was known for throwing the most enjoyable picnics, and this one seemed to be no different to Dr. Hugh Westlake and his precocious progeny, Dawn. When their host’s daughter breaks into a version of the old English folk ballad, “Green Grow the Rushes, O,” no one gives it a second thought. Little do they know the song portends death. It begins with the bodies of twin boys found in the river, which connects to a lyric from the ballad. And before anyone can even recover from such a horror, more killings occur—all diabolically tied to the song. With help from Dawn and his old friend, Inspector Cobb, Westlake must sort through an ever-shrinking circle of suspects and stop a murderer from striking another deadly note.
