The Storm Rider is a tale about how a deceitful man's sins literally come back to haunt him. Early on the morning of August 28, 1935 in Savannah, Georgia, a tycoon named Patrick O'Keefe brings his daughter, Carmen, to the railroad station. He has entrusted her with $40,000 to secure tool and food contracts from the purchasing agents of the railroad company operating in the Florida Keys. The contracts will bring Patrick profits many times the original investment. There is no doubt that Carmen's task is quite important. However, since she is quite a free spirit, it is anyone's guess why Patrick chose her to carry it out. He has only himself to blame when Carmen botches her mission in the worst way imaginable. Shortly after arriving in Florida, Carmen enters a bar where she meets a hustler named Joe Bono. In spite of how aggressive and headstrong Carmen is, Joe eventually manages to disappear with Patrick's money, leaving Carmen to die in a devastating hurricane. But Carmen's spirit will search for him, find him, and exact her revenge. The Storm Rider appeals to readers seeking elements of crime, intrigue, the supernatural and the hope of romance.This is a tale no Parrot Head should miss. The story takes place over two great storms: The 1935 Labor Day Hurricane and Hurricane Wilma in 2005.

Twenty-two year old Gunnar is exploring the US by motorcycle, taking odd jobs along the way. One particular odd job lands him in trouble with several different factions of local organized criminal bad guys. On top of that, the cops and the feds cant decide whether they want him dead, gone, or incarcerated. Gunnar has freakish physical strength, senses, and abilities, but he's never fully understood why. One tumultous incident occurs after another. As events begin to filter onto the news, a certain clandestine scientific community becomes intensely interested in Gunnar's predicament. A very hot and potty-mouthed FBI Special Agent is confused by her feelings for the intense young man, as she is both repulsed by yet strangely attracted to him. The two strike up an impromptu and occasionally hilarious relationship. Gunnar can't stay, he can't go, he can't hide. Finally, he snaps, and the result is appalling. And what does Hitler and the Nazis have to do with it all?Edgy, hysterical, shocking, a wild ride. Storm Rider will leave you speechless.

The World Of Myth

Hercules, Zeus, Thor, Gilgamesh--these are the figures that leap to mind when we think of myth. But to David Leeming, myths are more than stories of deities and fantastic beings from non-Christian cultures. Myth is at once the most particular and the most universal feature of civilization, representing common concerns that each society voices in its own idiom. Whether an Egyptian story of creation or the big-bang theory of modern physics, myth is metaphor, mirroring our deepest sense of ourselves in relation to existence itself. Now, in The World of Myth, Leeming provides a sweeping anthology of myths, ranging from ancient Egypt and Greece to the Polynesian islands and modern science. We read stories of great floods from the ancient Babylonians, Hebrews, Chinese, and Mayans; tales of apocalypse from India, the Norse, Christianity, and modern science; myths of the mother goddess from Native American Hopi culture and James Lovelock's Gaia. Leeming has culled myths from Aztec, Greek, African, Australian Aboriginal, Japanese, Moslem, Hittite, Celtic, Chinese, and Persian cultures, offering one of the most wide-ranging collections of what he calls the collective dreams of humanity. More important, he has organized these myths according to a number of themes, comparing and contrasting how various societies have addressed similar concerns, or have told similar stories. In the section on dying gods, for example, both Odin and Jesus sacrifice themselves to renew the world, each dying on a tree. Such traditions, he proposes, may have their roots in societies of the distant past, which would ritually sacrifice their kings to renew the tribe. In The World of Myth, David Leeming takes us on a journey "not through a maze of falsehood but through a marvellous world of metaphor," metaphor for "the story of the relationship between the known and the unknown, both around us and within us." Fantastic, tragic, bizarre, sometimes funny, the myths he presents speak of the most fundamental human experience, a part of what Joseph Campbell called "the wonderful song of the soul's high adventure."

Since the creation of the comic book, cases of legal conflict and confusion have often arisen where concepts such as public domain, unincorporated entities and moral rights are involved. As a result, comics creators are frequently concerned about whether they are protecting themselves. There are many questions and no single place to find the answers—that is, until now. Entertaining as it instructs, this book seeks to provide those answers, examining the legal history of comics and presenting information in a way that is understandable to everyone. While not seeking to provide legal advice, this book presents the legal background in plain English, and looks at the stories behind the cases. Every lawsuit has a story and every case has lessons to be learned. As these lessons are explored, the reader will learn the importance of contracts, the basics of copyright and trademark, the precautions necessary when working with public domain characters and the effects of censorship.

The Rider of the White Horse is a classic German novella, in which the individual wrestles with the mass, the man with the most elementary forces of nature. The scene of the novella is characterized with vividness in its setting of marsh and sea, it glorifies love, and at the same time it touches themes which deeply occupied Storm, such as the problem of heredity or the relation between father and son. Happiness is won, but it ends in tragedy. It is a man of sober intellect who tells the whole story - and yet, like human life itself, it stands out against a mystic background. Remembrance of long ago has clarified everything. It is Storm's last complete work.
