Roy Purcell swims through the tumultuous ocean of his unconscious, moving back and forth between it and his conscious mind. Concepts emerge from unexplained depths as images, which have become the basis for many of his paintings in his intriguing body of work. Raised in a loving Mormon family in rural Utah, Mr. Purcell, nevertheless, suffered because of his Aspergers dysfunctional personality. Unable to make social connections, Mr. Purcell retreats to nature and develops the sensitivity that will later open his unconscious. Journey out of Darkness is Mr. Purcells story of how he transcended his patriarchal heritage and Aspergers damaging personality to find peace as an accomplished artist. Critical to his growth and peace is his third wife and soul mate, Beverly, and the desert where they live in Green Valley, Arizona. Furthermore, the autobiography is the universal archetypal quest with Mr. Purcell as the hero who overcomes obstacles and slays the dragons of his troubled personality.

Alfred Lord Tennyson in his poem, "Ulysses" has the aging hero say, "I am a part of all that I have met". To this the poet might have added: and of all that I have thought. Storytellers find their stories among the broken fragments of their lives, things they have done, seen, or heard. They also find them among the scattered figments of their minds, things that they have deduced, dreamed or imagined. Their tales are crafted of these fragments and figments, with the mix varying widely. In the following stories that mix favors fact over fancy. Three of the stories are taken from my experiences during the Korean War; two are drawn from my childhood; and one from the courtship of my grandparents.

Do you wonder if miracles from God truly occur in today's world? Are you afraid walking in Christian faith requires too much sacrifice? Then perhaps you've never received a phone call from heaven. Ken Gaub did, and for this world evangelist it was a wake-up call that the God who talked with Adam in the cool of the Garden has never abandoned mankind, and stays in close contact with us still today. Gaub's unique blend of humor and straightforward teaching make this book a delightful read for anyone wishing to renew the strength of faith. This humble servant relates how his young faith in God prevented him from "chickening-out" when preaching to his first "congregation," and continues with the state of things today as he travels worldwide on missions for Christ.

Kareem was an Afghan resistance fighter of the 1980s and was once on the CIA payroll. But now he's responsible for the murder of an American CIA agent in Pakistan, which may compromise an intricate, long-planned CIA operation to capture Osama bin Laden. CIA officer Paul Patterson, who ran Kareem as an agent during the Soviet occupation of Afghanistan, sets out to track him down. Patterson navigates a shadow land of intrigue in England, Africa, the Middle East, and the U.S., where truth and lies seem to merge. Meanwhile, Muhammad Atta and the other conspirators prepare their attack on the World Trade Center. The climax is a stunning reversal of everything that Patterson's quest has led him to expect. Peopled with Washington bureaucrats, old CIA hands who operate by their own set of rules, African rebels, diplomats, and assassins, this thriller captures the world of the CIA and the terrorists with the intensity John le Carré brought to the Cold War.
