“The terror is relentless” (Publishers Weekly) in Stephen King’s #1 national bestseller about a little mining town, Desperation, that many will enter on their way to somewhere else. But getting out is not easy as it would seem… Located off a desolate stretch of Interstate 50, Desperation, Nevada, has few connections with the rest of the world. It is a place, though, where the seams between worlds are thin. And it is a place where several travelers are abducted by Collie Entragian, the maniacal police officer of Desperation. Entragian uses various ploys for the abductions, from an arrest for drug possession to “rescuing” a family from a nonexistent gunman. There’s something very wrong here, all right, and Entragian is only the surface of it. The secrets embedded in Desperation’s landscape, and the evil that infects the town like some viral hot zone, are both awesome and terrifying. But as one of the travelers, young David Carver, seems to know—though it scares him nearly to death to realize it—so are the forces summoned to combat them. “Stephen King’s knack for turning the stray junk of pop culture into sick, darkly engrossing thrills has rarely been this much in evidence as in Desperation” (Salon).

What happens when an inhabited planet is about to become uninhabitable? Do the inhabitants just accept their fate and die with dignity? Or do they abandon their planet like rats leaving a sinking ship? Common sense would dictate that a slim chance at survival is better by far than no chance at all. One only has to look at our own medical community to see how far they will go to buy a cancer patient just a few more months of life. Most times, the quality of that life is not even an issue. It does not matter how painful or wretched that life may be, as long as there is more of it. Thus, when the time came, the Colony Ship “Desperation” was launched. With only sublight capability and no clear destination it headed out into the great unknown with the philosophy that “anywhere is better than here.” This book is made up of excerpts from the Captains log of the Colony Ship “Desperation.” It covers a span of almost 1700 years from the time of its launch to the present, when they stumble across a secret that has evaded mankind ever since Noah sailed his Ark.

Desperation has set in for the Territories of the Twenty. After more than a century at war with the Hegemony, they have suffered two catastrophic defeats: the loss of their main uranium source for their warships and their failure in destroying the Hegemony's main base. In desperation, Admiral William Savage takes a third of the fleet to parts of the galaxy unknown to the Territories. Arriving in Lonsation space, Savage finds it has been taken over by the Hegemony and in order to take advantage of their uranium supplies, he must free Lonsatia. But do so, he may have to reveal his cybernetic powers as he battles his cyborg brothers exiled long ago for attempting to take over the galaxy. The missing fleet does not go unnoticed by the Hegemony, and plans are made to invade the capital of the Territories of the Twenty, Veloxora, while part of its defending fleet is missing. Will Admiral Savage be able to save the Lonsation Colonies, and will there be a home for him to return to at Veloxora?

2018 Association of Catholic Publishers, BOOK OF THE YEAR 2018 Association of Catholic Publishers, 1st Place; Inspirational 2018 Catholic Press Association, 3rd Place: Prayer, Books about Prayer When life has driven you to your knees, the only thing that works is prayer. Desperation has many faces: the addict who has hit bottom; the laid-off worker struggling to make the next house payment; the person who seems to have it all together but is wracked with fear, guilt, anger, or shame. We know we need help, but we are afraid to let anyone—especially God—see how broken we truly are. In Holy Desperation, Heather King demonstrates that, when we’re desperate, it’s precisely the right time to cry out to God. King, a survivor of addiction and other forms of desperation, begins with the basics of how to pray when you’re uncertain that God exists or when you feel that you’re beyond God’s reach. She challenges the assumptions that only the saintly can pray and that prayer ought to be tidy and nice. She reveals how prayer leads us beyond ourselves and into a life of purpose, lived for the good of others. Ultimately, Holy Desperation is an invitation to engage in bold, come-exactly-as-you-are prayer, offering a way forward, upward, and outward for anyone desperate enough to cry out for God’s help and presence. You are not alone.

With standardized testing and predetermined subgroups garnering the attention of educational leaders, abused and neglected children have fallen deeper into the crevice of the system. For years these children have been ignored, save the obvious, visible bruises or child-initiated confessions. Because researching children is difficult without parental consent, it is nearly impossible to expose this problem with any level of legitimacy. By combining research from scientific research and the humanities, autobiographical flashbacks fuse with narratives that vividly detail the author's disturbing encounters with abused children as a school administrator. The effect is the realization that public schools unknowingly feed on weaker children beneath the awning of accountability.
