As reviewed by New York Times best-selling author Ellen Tanner Marsh, "In clear, heartfelt prose, DeVore describes a brave and unflinching confrontation with his past, made necessary in order for him to have a more meaningful future. War, he realized, isn't just one man's experience--it's the sum total experience of an entire country. To stop wars, he argues, we must understand them and why we seem to need them." "The gut-wrenching brutality experienced by American soldiers in Vietnam was for many the beginning of a lifelong personal struggle. Unlike many veterans, who were unable to cope after returning to civilian life, John DeVore moved with facility from success as an Army officer to success in corporate America. Nevertheless, like many other veterans, the war haunted DeVore and finally--in a process he narrates in this book--compelled him to make a commitment to free himself and our country from the addiction to war." --Joel Andreas, author of Addicted to War: Why the U.S. Can't Kick Militarism "John DeVore's important book chronicles the remarkable transformation of a professional soldier to a 'spiritual warrior' of peace. A must-read for those interested in exploring the possibilities of a less violent global future." --Manfred B. Steger, professor of politics and government, Illinois State University; research fellow, Globalization Research Center, University of Hawai'i at Manoa "DeVore offers a simple explanation of the interconnectedness of his Western cultural conditioning, globalization, the reality of war, his civilian and military careers, and his search for spiritual roots. He certainly is a living example of the fearlessness and desire to help others that can begin to emerge through willingness to work with personal emotional turbulence, fear, anger, pride, envy, selfishness, ignorance, etc., on a daily basis. His story really helps us experience that it is possible to turn bad things to good things." --Ringu Tulku, internationally recognized teacher and author of Daring Steps Toward Fearlessness, Path to Buddhahood, Lazy Lama Series, Comment on Gampopa's 'Jewell Ornament of Liberation', Mind Training, The Boy Who Had a Dream, and A Perspective on Living and Dying. Ringu Tulku was born in Eastern Tibet in 1952 and was a professor of Tibetan studies for seventeen years. He travels extensively, teaches at Naropa University in Boulder, Colorado, and is director of seven meditation centers in Europe, the United States, and India.

These 37 essays are rooted in the inspiration I experience in working with my patients and with participants at the Opening the Heart Workshop. Though they are all very different in tone and content, they are all about love in the small places, off center stage. They may have been about lifting a hosta leaf and findinding a spider's web in diamonds of morning dew, or about watching new grass grow, holding a weeping patient in my office, watching a man outside my office drag his leg behind as he carries groceries home. They are all, I think, small love stories.

It all began simply enough. A client had vanished, and Jay Corcoran went to investigate the man's empty hotel suite. But Corcoran's trick vision spotted the room-sized box stuck to the outside wall of the suite. There was no way to get into the box, so Corcoran cabled his long-time pal Tom Boone. Boone had a talent. When threatened he could "step around a corner" into some otherwhere. Boone stepped into the box, taking Corcoran with him. The box turned out to be a time traveler machine that transported them back to 1745 England, where they found a family of refugees from a million years in the future. In that far future, alien Infinites were converting humanity to incorporeal form. When the family had refused conversion, they had to flee. For more than a century, the family had lain hidden in their time bubble. Suddenly, the Infinites' killer monster broke through--and things grew complicated as the family fled to the distant past and the farther future.

Nuclear war, dystopian unrest, a genetic mutation that divides twins in life and unites them in death—the “refreshingly nuanced” (Booklist, starred review) first novel in award-winning poet Francesca Haig’s richly imagined and action-packed post-apocalyptic trilogy “is poised to become the next must-read hit” (Kirkus Reviews, starred review). Four hundred years after a nuclear apocalypse, all humans are born in pairs: the deformed Omegas, who are exploited and oppressed, and their Alpha twins, who have inherited the earth—or what’s left of it. But despite their claims of superiority, the Alphas cannot escape one harsh fact: whenever one twin dies, so does the other. Cass is a rare Omega whose mutation is psychic foresight—not that she needs it to know that as her powerful twin, Zach, ascends the ranks of the ruling Alpha Council, she’s in grave danger. Zach has a devastating plan for Omega annihilation. Cass has visions of an island where a bloody Omega resistance promises a life of freedom. But her real dream is to discover a middle way, one that would bring together the sundered halves of humanity. And that means both the Council and the resistance have her in their sights.

The Fire House is a work of fiction; that must be made clear from the beginning. It is ghost story in the traditional sense of the word and yes, it centres on a haunted house. However, what makes this story so chillingly unique is the fact that it is based on actual events. Those events took place back in 1979 and for several dark months they brought utter devastation to an unassuming young family whose dreams and prospects of a perfect life were terrifyingly shattered. I make no secret of the fact that I have had a life-long interest in supernatural phenomena and during thirty years of open-minded research I have met many interesting and enigmatic people, none more so than the man I have characterised in The Fire House as Markos. He was a spiritualist medium and his 'gift' as he called it was in my opinion truly miraculous. He shared his gift freely with others and he brought lasting peace to countless ordinary folk. It was my good fortune to meet him in 1984 and I suppose it was inevitable that our shared interests would ensure that we soon became firm friends.Markos passed over into the spirit world he so often communicated with seven years ago and his passing left a void in my life that will never be filled. The Fire House is my tiny homage to him and others like him throughout the world who open themselves up to the derision of sceptics and selflessly use their gifts to bring comfort and hope to the hearts and minds of troubled people. The facts behind the ghost story you are about to read proved to me beyond any reasonable doubt that just as there are angels, there are also such things as malevolent spirits and of their evil powers we have no real comprehension.until now.

Barnaby Skye, the most durable and unforgettable character in modern Western fiction, returns in this harrowing tale of survival from his early years in the Rockies. In the midst of a brutal winter, Skye's beloved Crow Indian wife, Victoria, is critically wounded when a Blackfeet raiding party attacks a Crow hunting camp. Despite Skye's attempts at doctoring, Victoria's life hangs in the balance as the two, left alone in the frozen wilderness, struggle to survive cold and starvation. Miraculously, an old mare and her foal wander into their camp. Victoria believes they have been sent by her spirit guide, and finds the strength to ride. Skye and his wife make their way toward Victoria's home village on the Musselshell River. Breaking winter trail is a slow and laborious process, but at the end of the journey they will find peace. Or will they? Skye's love of whiskey puts his life, and Victoria's, in peril when they encounter a renegade band of Yankee traders taking a wagon-load of a cheap and poisonous raw alcohol to trade among the Indians. Their leader, a former West Point officer, forces Skye to guide them, but all the while the legendary mountain man plots to ruin their deadly enterprise. In The Fire Arrow, Richard S. Wheeler has fashioned an unforgettable tale of love and survival in the unforgiving wilderness of the American West.

Amis, portraying herself as Sabrina Matheson, was living a relatively normal, happy life when a break-up, and well-intentioned recovery trip kicked off a chain of events that would leave the life she once knew in shambles. She realizes that her step-grandmother, who influenced the spiritual aspect of ex-serial killer David Berkowitz's life also influenced her spiritual life, but in an adverse way. To help cope with a difficult break-up, Amis' father sends her on a vacation in Jamaica with her best friend. It is there that she almost instantly becomes "consumed into the fire" when she is introduced to a man named Gary and the other worlds of witchcraft. She quickly found herself in the middle of a domestic violence situation, and it became increasingly difficult to be a mother of her two children. The memories of the materialistic life that her father, Mr. Barnes, introduced her to when she was a teenager did not alleviate any of the drama. About the Author Patricia Amis holds a Bachelor's degree from Wagner College in Staten Island, New York. She has also attended The New York University Graduate School of Social Work. Patricia is the Host, Founder, and Executive Producer of Elderview Talkshow, which airs on Time Warner Cable and Verizon Fios.
