A New York jazz musician discovers he has a half-brother—a king in Kenya—and embarks on a journey to Africa that turns into a spiritual odyssey. When a copper deposit is discovered on the land of the Makenda tribe in eastern Kenya, a young king, Ule Samanga, is told to relocate his people to a refugee camp in Nairobi or risk imprisonment. When all appears lost, the young king discovers the existence of Curtis Jackson, a mysterious half brother presently living in New York. Believing this unexpected news to be an omen from the spirit of his ancestors, he eagerly seeks Curtis’s help to save their sacred tribal homeland. A struggling mortgage broker and former jazz prodigy, Curtis initially has no interest in developing a relationship with his newly found African family. But when he’s presented with an intriguing business offer, he embarks on a journey to Africa that becomes a spiritual odyssey, changing him in ways he never imagined. In this assured debut, Richard Crystal weaves a complex story of contemporary moral imperatives conceived during Obama’s victorious election as America’s first black president. Themes of corporate malfeasance and exploitation will resonate with readers of The Constant Gardener and Blood Diamond. But beyond the various political machinations, readers will find a heartwarming story infused with the strains of Coltrane, the history of jazz, and the enduring power of family.

Based on police wiretaps and exclusive interviews with drug kingpins and hip-hop insiders, this is the untold story of how the streets and housing projects of southeast Queens took over the rap industry. For years, rappers from Nas to Ja Rule have hero-worshipped the legendary drug dealers who dominated Queens in the 1980s with their violent crimes and flashy lifestyles. Now, for the first time ever, this gripping narrative digs beneath the hip-hop fables to re-create the rise and fall of hustlers like Lorenzo “Fat Cat” Nichols, Gerald “Prince” Miller, Kenneth “Supreme” McGriff, and Thomas “Tony Montana” Mickens. Spanning twenty-five years, from the violence of the crack era to Run DMC to the infamous murder of NYPD rookie Edward Byrne to Tupac Shakur to 50 Cent’s battles against Ja Rule and Murder Inc., to the killing of Jam Master Jay, Queens Reigns Supreme is the first inside look at the infamous southeast Queens crews and their connections to gangster culture in hip hop today. From the Trade Paperback edition.

With all the turmoil in the world today, I wanted to write a story with the best news of all time! There will come a day when Christ will return to the earth and reign for a thousand years. I wrote the book in the form of a novel instead of a theological treatise. I believe the story is intriguing, suspenseful, and uplifting to anyone regardless of their religious beliefs. This novel is the second greatest story ever told! The greatest story ever told was that of when Christ came to earth, lived a life, died on a cross, was buried, and resurrected on the third day. His promise was that he would return one day and rule for a thousand years. So The Reign tells the story of a family living during the predicted seven-year tribulation period. The familys patriarch is John Cruz. He leads his family faithfully through this period by refusing to take the mark and figures out creative ways to supply food for his family and combat the Acolytes, who are the Antichrists worldwide police force. The book will take you through this tribulation period and will describe what happens on the day that Christ returns.

Little girls disappear from Long Island's playgrounds. Their frail lifeless bodies later found swaying back and forth in the stale, summer air. Detective Max Miller is given reason to believe that the killer may be a man of the cloth, landing him right smack in the middle of a gut-wrenching investigation that takes him on a treacherous journey down the razor-thin line that separates that which is Good from that which is Evil.

Who are the "Children of the Reign?" They are the bold and the daring; the lost and the illustrious; the wild and the wicked. They are kings, prophets, warriors, and slaves. They are the beating heart within the Nation of Syril; and the Promised People of God! As such, these brave men and women fight even unto death to see that His will is done in a universe that is quickly being consumed by the evils of mortal men, some of which even lurk in the shadows of their own beloved nation! They are the "Children of the Reign," and they shall reign supreme! What makes Children of the Reign a fantasy "pulp" serial? Successors to the dime novels and penny dreadfuls of the late 19th century, the "pulps" were inexpensive magazines that were printed on cheap wood pulp paper to save on costs - hence, the name. The pulps are best known these days for their lurid, exploitative, and sensational subject matter; ranging in stories from steamy romance to detective crime cases to wild adventures on other worlds. Modern superhero comic books are sometimes considered to be descendants of the "hero" pulps, which often featured illustrated stories of Flash Gordon, The Shadow, and Doc Savage. Another way that pulps kept costs down was by paying authors less than other markets would; thus, many eminent authors started out in the pulps such as Stephen King, Frank Herbert, and Isaac Asimov. However, it was authors like Robert E. Howard, Edgar Rice Burroughs, and H. P. Lovecraft that really left their mark in pulp fiction, creating such iconic characters as Tarzan, Conan the Barbarian, John Carter of Mars, Soloman Kane, and the Cthulhu. There were also speculative and science-fiction writers that made a name for themselves in the pulps, with Philip K. Dick and Harlan Ellison being the most notable among them, who went on to pen some classic episodes of Star Trek, The Twilight Zone, and Tales From the Darkside, and even wrote the original stories for the movies: Blade Runner, Total Recall, and Minority Report. Beyond a shadow of a doubt, the pulps made an indelible mark on all things science-fiction, fantasy, and horror in the world today. And it is in this vein that we, Gregory Myers and Richard Valot (the co-authors), present the Children of the Reign fantasy "pulp" serial. For even though it isn't printed on the cheap wood pulp paper of that time, Children of the Reign is being created on a dime, with Greg and me doing all of the work: the writing, editing, producing, publishing, advertising, and marketing. Because just like all of the authors and publishers from the good old "pulp" days, we are both just working men with practically no money to our names desperately trying to get our craft out there into the world; for we truly believe in it, and want to share our fantastical universe with everyone, along with all of the savagery, strange suspense, and mythological drama that can be found therein. So, without further ado, here is the latest creation in this "new" pulp era: Children of the Reign! LO! The plot thickens! Continuing the first major story arc, the second book joins Acton and his people who are finally free! Having defeated all of their enemies during the grand exodus, the Nation of Syril suddenly finds itself in an age of peace and prosperity, and instantly becomes immersed in the dreamworld that is King Daul's glorious reign! Yet, as Acton weaves his way in and out of this blissful fantasy, he starts seeing signs that something might be rotten in this virtual paradise. However, it is far too little and far too late. For there is indeed a new enemy on the rise, and everyone will ultimately bow down to him!

Since first appearing in 1998, Garner's Modern American Usage has established itself as the preeminent guide to the effective use of the English language. Brimming with witty, erudite essays on troublesome words and phrases, GMAU authoritatively shows how to avoid the countless pitfalls that await unwary writers and speakers whether the issues relate to grammar, punctuation, word choice, or pronunciation. An exciting new feature of this third edition is Garner's Language-Change Index, which registers where each disputed usage in modern English falls on a five-stage continuum from nonacceptability (to the language community as a whole) to acceptability, giving the book a consistent standard throughout. GMAU is the first usage guide ever to incorporate such a language-change index. The judgments are based both on Garner's own original research in linguistic corpora and on his analysis of hundreds of earlier studies. Another first in this edition is the panel of critical readers: 120-plus commentators who have helped Garner reassess and update the text, so that every page has been improved. Bryan A. Garner is a writer, grammarian, lexicographer, teacher, and lawyer. He has written professionally about English usage for more than 28 years, and his work has achieved widespread renown. David Foster Wallace proclaimed that Bryan Garner is a genius and William Safire called the book excellent. In fact, due to the strength of his work on GMAU, Garner was the grammarian asked to write the grammar-and-usage chapter for the venerable Chicago Manual of Style. His advice on language matters is second to none.

For a philosopher with an abiding interest in the nature of objective knowledge systems in science, what could be more important than trying to think in terms of those very subjects of such knowledge to which men like Galileo, Newton, Max Planck, Einstein and others devoted their entire lifetimes? In certain respects, these systems and their structures may not be beyond the grasp of a linguistic conception of science, and scientific change, which men of science and philosophy have advocated in various forms in recent times. But certainly it is wrong-headed to think that one's conception of science can be based on an identification of its theories with languages in which they may be, my own alternatively, framed. There may be more than one place in book (1983: 87) where they may seem to get confused with each other, quite against my original intentiens. The distinction between the objec tive knowledge systems in science and the dynamic frameworks of the languages of the special individual sciences, in which their growth can be embedded in significant ways, assumes here, therefore, much impor tance. It must be recognized that the problems concerning scientific change, which these systems undergo, are not just problems concerning language change.

"From meetings and conversation with men, love affairs arise. In the midst of pleasures, banquets, dances, laughter, and self-indulgence, Venus and her son Cupid reign supreme. . . . Poor young girl, if you emerge from these encounters a captive prey! How much better it would have been to remain at home or to have broken a leg of the body rather than of the mind!" So wrote the sixteenth-century Spanish humanist Juan Luis Vives in a famous work dedicated to Henry VIII's daughter, Princess Mary, but intended for a wider audience interested in the education of women. Praised by Erasmus and Thomas More, Vives advocated education for all women, regardless of social class and ability. From childhood through adolescence to marriage and widowhood, this manual offers practical advice as well as philosophical meditation and was recognized soon after publication in 1524 as the most authoritative pronouncement on the universal education of women. Arguing that women were intellectually equal if not superior to men, Vives stressed intellectual companionship in marriage over procreation, and moved beyond the private sphere to show how women's progress was essential for the good of society and state.

The Bible teaches man the word of God. But Christianity's greatest error has been to interpret the word of God as being the Logos of God. Providing a fresh perspective, The Holy Bible Plus offers a thorough look at the Bible--its origins, its contents, its teachings, its substance, its testaments, and more. The Holy Bible Plus examines a host of topics surrounding the Bible, Christianity, spirituality, and what it means to be a follower of Christ. It seeks to provide an understanding of the WORD, faith, God, the plan, the kingdom, the soul, your duties as a Christian, and sexualities. The essays included in The Holy Bible Plus communicate that Christ revealed how to be creators of new life, not how to be holy. It teaches that obedience to the word is the holiness of Judaism, but discovery of the word is the power of creation.

THANKFULLY, we now hear the matter strictly from GODS perspective. The genuine Christians joy is to receive GODS Word without compromise from one living holy. The absent Godly father, pretend churches, and alternatives to Jesus are extraordinary mistakes of man and extraordinary triumphs of Satan. Moreover, a Godly perspective is needed in the areas of [a] male/female relationships, [b] human relations, [c] child rearing, [d] love, [e] prayer, and [f] faith. Finally, GODS Word is the most important thing in life. Hence, reading and obeying it takes precedence over everything, both in heaven and on earth!
