Once a favorite pastime of thrill-seeking gamblers, backgammon has evolved over the last half century into a true statistical science, with its top players rigorously training with artificial-intelligence programs in their quest to master the game's secrets. The vocabulary of backgammon has evolved as well. While much of it remains that of a craps player out of a Damon Runyon story, it now also teems with expressions denoting mathematical parameters and techniques that would have left an old-school risk-taker utterly at sea. The Language of Backgammon, a companion volume to the author's two-volume series, The Backgammon Chronicles, captures the language in this transitional phase, preserving its colorful, traditional argot while providing clear explanations of the concepts that enable the modern player to analyze the game with unprecedented depth and accuracy.

Soraia comes from a psychic/medium family and is openly sharing her premonitions for the near future (201314) with the world. She also finds herself very funny and loves to bring laughter into others peoples lives. Shes created this extroverted book that will entertain you and make you laugh rather than being just about her serious paranormal experiences. I keep telling people that I have no hidden agenda rather trying to spread the truth. My premonitions have never betrayed me. If Im looking forward to becoming famous, it is only with the purpose to enable my message to be heard and accepted without skepticism. I believe that we are at the edge of an era lacking love, but mostly understanding of God.

The boys eyes were swollen, the cut on his lip was not healing well, and he was still badly bruised and scratched. Xelphea and its neighboring nations of Perlador, Ammyl, and Voerlow have known peace for more than half of a millennium. However, Voerlow has not forgotten its loss in that long-ago war. The bitter, warlike nations monarch is ailing and soon to pass on the throne to his wicked son, Kellup. Upon assuming his place as the leader of Voerlow, he attacks and leaves his gentle brother for dead, then hatches a plan to help him take over Xelphea by kidnapping its king and queen and turning them into his slaves. AnnaLusia, an Ammylite, has served as the Xelphean royal governess for almost her entire centuries-long life. When Kellups plot results in Queen Delshannas kidnapping, she uses her magic powers to protect the ruler she helped raise and try to establish peace in Collandonia. Good fantasy fiction should always strike a balance of having one foot in the exciting and impossible and the other planted in the real world with characters that are charming and accessible. This story, the first in a planned trilogy, establishes that well, doing most of its world-building with politics and then treating the audience to magical powers and abilities with the kind of afterthought that a narrator and a world familiar with them would provide. The pacing of the book is crisp and quick, making it very easy for any reader to devour and indulge innot just those looking for a new realm to explore. Without getting bogged down in mythical terminology or requiring readers to consult a map as a reference guide, this is a fantasy book that is fun to read and hard to put down. Perfect for a quiet weekend or some relaxing reading before bed, this title should be appealing to more than just those dedicated to the genre. The US Review of Books

Few of America's first families have guided the course of a nation as decisively as the Roosevelts. Patriots and poltroons, inventors and country squires, reformers and machine politicians, saints and sinners--Nathan Miller tells the story of those self-made aristocrats whose personal stamp has reflected and influenced America for three hundred years. They were the mirror of their day and their ancestry attests to that fact: from Dutch peasant farmers whose rustic beginnings planted the seeds of greatness, to prosperous fur traders whose descendants, by 1776, were members of the provincial congress voting for resolutions supporting independence and then ratifying the Constitution. Here too is the story of the Roosevelt women--making "good marriages," moving upward amid the powerful and prominent New York families--securing for themselves a destiny that would make the twentieth century the "Age of the Roosevelts." Making use of documents never published before, Miller presents a sweeping panorama of an American dynasty. --From publisher description.
