This book runs in the same vein as Fanny Hill, but is a lot more explicit. Arabella is the story of a proud and strong-willed woman of the Victorian era. In her own words she describes the erotic escapades and kinky amours that took place behind the closed doors of 1890s society.

AronRa, an atheist activist and educator known for his various attacks on Young Earth Creationism, has often talked about and, subsequently, been wrong on a lot of his history. Despite claiming to educate the public, his work on history and philosophy has only misinformed the public, a fact he refuses to be held accountable for. This booklet focuses on exposing numerous errors and flaws in AronRa's works, showing that he should not be taken at his word for history, nor should he even speak on the matter.
