In this entertaining compilation of the best quotations from his four previous books -- with short essays, playful drawings, and new material added -- Leslie Miklosy takes you on a journey of discovery. These life reflections, whether serious or offbeat, aim to inspire you and expand your sense of life's possibilities. Some examples: "Why look at the underbelly of wonderful?" "We are concentrates charged with the task in life of avoiding dilution." "If you can't do your best, don't. Do even better." Professor, mental health counselor, and author Rubin Battino says: "Condensing thoughts, images and wisdom into a few lines is an art which Miklosy has mastered. Read these wonderful aphorisms, and be both inspired and amazed!" Clinician, teacher, and author Rob McNeilly states: "Leslie Miklosy has written a gem. A rambling collection of pithy reminders of the joys and ironies of the human condition. These wry, whimsical, and at times tender snippets can be savoured. Each has an immediate relevance, at once pointed and expansive. I'm looking forward to dipping into it again and again." Former poet laureate of North Carolina (2015-18) Shelby Stephenson says: "Out of My Mind: Quotations that Delight, Dazzle, and Confound is a book whose title says it all. Each thought plays new chords: 'Dive into newness / And discover another you.' Keep it by your side, your bed, or on your coffee table. You will be glad you did."
Why can't Americans -- let alone our president -- speak English anymore? How do we expect to fight a terrorist enemy that we can't even locate? And when did capitalism go so terribly wrong? This book isn't all heady stuff, though.
Author: Andy Rooney
Every Sunday evening, millions of viewers tune in to 60 Minutes to hear Andy Rooney riff on everything from coffee percolators to the state of the union. Millions more read his weekly newspaper column. Why? Because Rooney tells it like it is. But Rooney fans have never seen him quite like this. Andy Rooney is plain frustrated by what's going on in America and the world. Why can't Americans—let alone our president—speak English anymore? How do we expect to fight a terrorist enemy that we can't even locate? And when did capitalism go so terribly wrong? This book isn't all heady stuff, though. Readers will also get the familiar—and hysterical—Rooney gripes about everyday foibles, such as the impossibility of physically locating your driver's registration, of purchasing a genuinely healthy breakfast cereal, or of enjoying a college reunion—unless everyone ends up in their nighties, that is. PublicAffairs is pleased to present its fifth collaboration with Andy Rooney. Loyal Rooney fans and anyone who enjoys a good laugh at life's absurdities will be thrilled to add it to the bookshelf during the holidays.

Author: Julia A. Turk
In this third and final volume of Julia Turk's Navigator's Dream series, the Navigator makes one final voyage into the realm of tarot to ultimately find enlightenment-but it will be much more difficult than a simple turn of the cards for our psychiatrist-turned-philosopher and mystic. In "Seatime," the hero ascends into the Major Arcana of the tarot deck via a sailboat led by the Higher Self of the Navigator, known as Guide. Joined together with a motley crew, the sailboat takes the Navigator and Guide deep within the islands, or Sephiroth, of the Mystic SEA. These are not tropical islands intended for peace and comfort; each island is different than the last, and each carries a mystery that must be unraveled. Although the Navigator has learned much amidst the tarot cards, has the hero learned enough to make it home? Externally, the Navigator has difficulties, but internally there are problems as well; as the riddles unravel, so do the deeply held psychological issues of the Navigator. By the end, the mysteries of the Major Arcana might be solved, but will the Navigator be able to heal the wounds built prior to the tarot adventure?

Thirteen stories of the past, present, and future from the Hugo Award–winning author of Stand on Zanzibar. In Out of My Mind, John Brunner, in mid-career, selects a double-handful and more of what he considers his best work to date, thirteen stories that represent—under the three categories in which he classifies them: Past, Present, Future—his most challenging and entertaining stories, from present-day fear of nuclear annihilation to a loving, yet also terrifying infinite loop in time that includes a sideways step outside the universe as we know it. Put yourself in the hands of a master and take your imagination for a series of thrill-rides. “One of the most important science fiction authors. Brunner held a mirror up to reflect our foibles because he wanted to save us from ourselves.” —SF Site

Author: Joey Apodaca
I started my freshman year of high school at a new school in San Antonio, shortly after moving to Texas, I was excited for the new year. Everything was normal until the end of the year. Around that time, I started having memory issues and depressing thoughts. My problems quickly developed into anxiety, odd headaches, night terrors, hallucinations, and dissociative episodes. Some of which still plague me today. I had no motivation to leave my bed or do anything. How could I? I had no control over my life. But for some strange reason, I just started to write poetry. I don’t even remember writing my first one. I never had any special interest in writing and I had never written for fun until then. With this newfound ability, I flipped my lucid dreams into ominous text, and the voices in my head into little love stories. My life changed when I ran into these invisible obstacles, but I was blessed with a way to tune them out. So now I’m a sixteen year old who was struck with a talented way with words and a passion for writing, or an insane little kid who sputters pretty phrases in-between loads of gibberish. Either way, I’m having fun.

To be completely honest, I do not know where to start. I write just to ease the pain I go through. So whoever reads this, good luck. Its just my mind on paper. I dont even know where to begin. I constantly write away my feelings on paper, and honestly, this is the only way I can maintain my sanity. Talking to my book, what I call it, keeps me intact. My pen is the only thing, the only object, the only instrument that keeps me from blowing up. My pen is my sword; the book, my shield; the words, my arsenal of weaponsthis is what I call them. Through these words, you will know me, who I am, what I have become, what makes me a man, a being, and most of all, an entity. Demented, analytical, noble, tormented, ingenious, young, malevolent, original, orthodox, rigid, existing!
