Several True (I Think) Stories: Can Truth Be Stranger Than Fiction? discusses numerous unusual events. The majority of them were personally experienced or witnessed by the author. This second edition contains numerous small changes and corrections. The incidents described include in no particular order: (1) eyes apparently heating a wedding ring and burning someone's finger, (2) a "miraculous" healing, (3) a summer snowstorm in southeastern Kentucky, (4) two objects being elevated by unknown forces, (5) meeting former CBS news anchor Walter Cronkite in an unusual way, (6) some strange "coincidences," and (7) several other stories. The book contains 52 chapters, in addition to the Introduction. Most chapters are very short. The book only contains 99 pages from the Introduction through the Conclusion/Summary chapter. Over 50 stories are covered in those 99 pages. Readers may find some of the stories unbelievable, but the author sought to be truthful in his descriptions of the events. The author feels that hyperbole is a fancy word for lying and usually needs to be avoided when writing nonfiction. The book ends with a brief Conclusion/Summary chapter.

The gift of reading. There could not be a greater Christmas gift. Throughout history, I ask you what circumstances have compelled any and all would-be authors to put quills-to-parchments (or, in more recent generations, put fingertips-to-keyboards) to create their miasma of pages to be collected together and called a book? It's a good question and I haven't a clue as to any short, finite answer. I only know that there are lots and lots and lots of compelling circumstances. In my particular case, at an early age I found myself interested in the How? and Why? of things I had read about or heard about or saw. No doubt there have been others like me throughout history who have bumbled, stumbled and fumbled their way through life because they were looking through curious eyes - and not necessarily through practical, comprehending eyes. Let me tell you, one stumbles frequently when trying to get somewhere while looking upward rather than downward. But it is still a trip worth taking.... and while looking upward. In the late 1940s I heard on our family entertainment center (which in the late1940s was only an RCA Victor radio) Gene Autry singing the song, Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer, and I was fascinated by the lyrics of the song. Yet I wanted to know, But why did Rudolph's nose glow? No answers to that question were forthcoming and the question remained in the catacombs of my memory for all the years thereafter. Once I had retired from my career and began to write serialized Christmas stories, I plucked the glowing nose dilemma from its dormancy and began to ask, What if.... In order to write this book's first Christmas story, the First Christmas Glowing, I felt compelled to examine (and for story purposes, hypothetically answer) the following What if's:- What if, say a hundred years ago or so, there had been a long-distance message runner making deliveries amongst neighboring villages in the Great Rift Valley of eastern Africa and what if, on one of his runs, the message-runner made a substantive discovery? - What if that substantive discovery, as found on the slope of an old volcano crater, would change Christmases forever and ever? - What if that discovery had something to do with the wing-flap speed of a certain kind of insect? - What if the message-runner put his substantive discovery into a small earthen jar and what if that jar over the course of the next sixty years found its way to a once well-traveled trunk in the home of the brother of a traveling circus entertainer named Maximillian? - What if Maximillian was the uncle of a young girl (his brother's daughter) who also lived in that home? - What if Uncle Max's young niece found the jar and years later would find herself positioned and prepared to come to the aid of one of the most important Christmasses of the 20th Century? - What if there are several other adventures along the way involving magic tricks, singing wolves, a Japanese fishing boat, and an intuitivie Inuit weatherman? - And, yes, what if there is a happy ending, and it is one that you know very well...and certainly have even sung about? In order to write this book's second Christmas story, A Long-Distance Christmas Greeting, I had to answer a whole raft of completely different What if's . and that is because the second story has resulted from my memory of an incident that occurred in the mid 1950s. the remembered incident occurred somewhere on the east coast of the United States and involved some historical society or a university or a city council or something-or-other creating a time capsule, filled with objects. the objects were something like tooth paste, Argyle sox, automobile hubcaps, and square-dance instructions, all to be hermetically sealed, buried, and not opened for a hundred years or so... something to provide clear evidence as to how the residents of our country lived back in the 1950s. I liked that idea, but at the time I was curious about the assembling of rockets capable of travelling into deep space.... so I wondered, What If we put a time capsule (full of stuff) into a rocket and fired it into space in no particular direction? Story #2 comprises my hypothetical answers to that What If. - What if there was a clairvoyant great-great grandmother who loved to drink coffee on her beloved Island of Molokai and who kept being awakened by a recurring dream? - What if that dream woke her up at the same time every evening and what if the dream consisted of something unknown moving through darkness, at a high speed, and with an unknown purpose? - What if an overly-adventuresome African Gray Parrot escaped from an aviary in a zoo in Vienna, Austria and began a sort of Roots trip? - What if the parrot's grandfather had made an indelible and unforgettable impact on a battlefield during a World War? - What if an elementary school student on an excursion to Mount Palomar saw something in a telescope that intrigued the entire world? - What role could a chartreuse micro bus or a poetic corn broker from Dubuque, Iowa have on a world-changing event? - What if we were given the opportunity to learn more about what is out there beyond our universe? the two 'tis-the-season stories of this Almost True Christmas Stories (Vol 1) book are both fun-filled adventures which also inform, enlighten and entertain readers (of all ages, i. e. from 9 to 99) about life and the pursuit of happiness These thought-provoking and discussion-inspiring stories are intended to be read by children, parents, grandparents, aunts and uncles, sisters and brothers - and, as important, they are intended to be read to the younger children in families in order to help to instill an interest in reading about where our world is now, where it has been in the past, and where it is going in the future. Again, there could not be a better Christmas gift

ABOUT THE AUTHOR This work, True Treasure Stories of the Southwest, is William White’s second publication since his initial work of Tales of the Caballos. From a literary point of view, this new work represents a more sophisticated form of writing that the reader will be sure to enjoy. Without losing his ability to tell a story, William White has filled in the blank spots, while giving the reader a more colorful account of these adventures. While Tales of the Caballos became an underground best seller in New Mexico, this new book spans many states with a variety of stories about treasures, many of which have never been published before. All of the accounts represented in this book are personal experiences from twenty years of treasure hunting by the author. The only thing William White enjoys more than writing about his experiences is to be on the trail of a new treasure. “ I have gone to some amazing places and seen things that I would have never have witnessed had I not been a treasure hunter.” says William White. William White has had modest success treasure hunting and he is still looking for the “Big One”. That elusive catch of gold bars or gemstones is still waiting for him to find and some day I know that he will. In the mean time, the reader will enjoy his experiences and adventures with many inside tips on where to look and where to go to search for treasure. Wayne May, Publisher Ancient American Magazine

Lawrence Bartell experienced many strange events over the course of his long life, at least partly because he deliberately strayed far from the beaten path in science. While it might not have been the most efficient way to gain a reputation in his field, it was more fun. In his memoir, he presents a collection of entertaining, sometimes bizarre stories collected over a lifetime. Bartell chronicles a wide variety of experiences, such as his predisposition to indulge in childhood pranks, his arrest as a possible Russian spy, his work on the Manhattan Project, his entry into the Guinness Book of Records, his stint in the US Navy during wartime, and his appointment as visiting professor in Moscow during the height of the Cold War. As he recalls the curious and often bizarre true stories he acquired over a lifetime, it soon becomes evident that scientists are just as human as anyone else and that beer really can play an important role in preparing one for a PhD thesis. True Stories of Strange Events and Odd People shares details from a scientist's one-of-a-kind journey through life as he observes the world around him, tests his theories, and learns valuable life lessons.

In a uniquely entertaining book by a rising star, here are uncanny true tales of haunted highways, weird encounters, and legends of the road. It may have happened to you; it's happened to almost everyone who's ever driven down a highway at night, or in the fog, or snow. Something suddenly appears: a flash of movement, a shadow...what was it? It could be, as the true stories in this book attest, a ghost. These are true stories from the highways and byways of America. These firsthand accounts are as varied as the storytellers themselves—some are detailed and filled with the terror and suspense that made people feel they had to share what happened to them with others; others are brief and straightforward retellings of truly chilling events. Here is a chupacabra attack on the desert highway between L.A. and Las Vegas; ghost trains and soldiers; UFOs; the prom girl ghost of Alabama; a demon in Texas, and other accounts of the creepy, scary things that truckers and other drivers and passengers told to editor Annie Wilder. With so many different stories, Trucker Ghost Stories moves beyond the usual haunted house to offer stories to entice any ghost story reader...and anyone who's ever wondered.... At the Publisher's request, this title is being sold without Digital Rights Management Software (DRM) applied.
