<h2><strong>The Critics say...<em>"You won't forget this book!"</em></strong><br /></h2><h3><strong><em></em></strong><strong>From the #1 Amazon Bestselling Author comes a story</strong><strong> inspired by the U.S. Army's psychic spy program, Stargate.</strong></h3><p><br /></p><p>For two decades, the Army trained special agents in remote viewing, a form of clairvoyance.  With Russia at the forefront of paranormal research, the United States government wasn’t about to be left behind and funneled more than twenty million dollars into the top secret program.</p><p>Hidden among the landscape of Fort Meade and inside the walls of a wooden structure, the remote viewing labs trained soldiers to be psychic spies under a cloak of secrecy and a signed oath.  If the oath was broken, the soldier could face up to $10,000 in fines and a possible prison sentence. But in 1995 during the Clinton Administration, Stargate was shut down. Now twenty years later, a new story emerges. </p><p>Meet Sergeant Major Seth Phoenix. He's spent his entire life guarding a secret, but when a terrorist attack at Fort Bragg threatens the lives of himself and two of his closest friends, he risks it all and uses his supernatural powers of telekinesis. </p><p>When General Monroe witnesses the event, he has Phoenix transported to Fort Meade where the sergeant major is introduced to the clandestine Stargate Program. But a mole leaks Phoenix's identity to Russia, and Seth must find the spy and stop one of the biggest Al Qaeda attacks in history.</p><p>Sergeant Major Seth Phoenix is a fictional character, but the locations and scientific research in the story are real and designed to give an authentic view of what the original remote viewers may have experienced during the program’s peak time in operation.  Once you enter Phoenix's world, it'll be hard to tell the difference between what is fact and what is fiction!</p><ul><li>Note from the author:  Seth Phoenix and his rank as a sergeant major is not meant to represent the personality or character of any real life military personnel. The research for <strong><em>The Phoenix Series</em> </strong>involved more than two years of interviews with military personnel, consultations, travel time, and hands-on demonstrations with tactical gear and artillery.  It is my hope that you enjoy <strong><em>The Phoenix Series </em></strong>as much as I enjoyed the research.  Although I consider this series to be one of my most challenging projects, it was also an unforgettable experience and a fascinating subject.  This series is dedicated to the United States Military and all national and local law enforcement agencies protecting our homeland.</li></ul><p><strong>Just remember, in the end and by direct orders of the CIA, this never happened...</strong></p>

<p>In 1950, at least 70 percent of Montana's food was grown in Montana. Many states used to have robust local-food economies, but that has changed drastically around the country in recent decades. National-scale food businesses beat out community-oriented small and medium-sized operations, laying waste to the infrastructure that once supported thriving local-food economies.<br />There is rising interest in again making food a local affair. But jump-starting a locavore economy is a tricky business. To cut down the massive distances that the vast majority of food eaten in the United States travels before it reaches dinner plates, communities must work to nurture "a cascading effect" by which each piece of a local-food economy enables and then reinforces the others to create a robust, cost-effective network.<br /><i>Locavore U.S.A. </i>introduces readers to some brave, hard-working souls in western Montana who are building their own such network piece by piece. In the process they are uncovering a key way to transform our industrially dominated food system. </p><p>The following ebook is taken from the book <i>Change Comes to Dinner.</i><br /><i></i></p>

While Homer's existence as a historical person is still a topic of debate, the writings attributed to the name have made their mark not only on Greek history and literature, but upon western civilization itself. Homer's epic poems, The Iliad and The Odyssey, laid the foundation upon which Ancient Greece developed not only its culture, but its societal values, religious beliefs, and practice of warfare as well.<br /><br />This publication features the Samuel Butler translation, and while it strays from the poetic style reproduced by more well known translators like Robert Fagles and Robert Fitzgerald, the vision of the epics as if they were prose found in modern novels take their best form under Butler's most capable hand.

In his "Ghostly little book," Charles Dickens invents the modern concept of Christmas Spirit and offers one of the world's most adapted and imitated stories. We know Ebenezer Scrooge, Tiny Tim, and the Ghosts of Christmas Past, Present, and Future, not only as fictional characters, but also as icons of the true meaning of Christmas in a world still plagued with avarice and cynicism.
Cult Escape: My Journey to Freedom

Cult Escape. It is the personal story of a boy born into a tyrannical religious Exclusive Brethren cult in England in the 1960s, and the tormenting journey of planning the escape to eventual freedom. The price of freedom was to be cut off from all his friends and family who were forbidden from having any contact with him.<br /><br />Now, after escaping, what does a 22 year old boy, who had been hidden in a box like a coiled spring do, when suddenly he finds he can explore all his fantasies with no religious restraint? Like the proverbial kid in the sweetshop, he goes wild. He loses his virginity within days, goes evil by buying the forbidden TV, radio, video and ‘fills his boots’ experimenting with the ‘big bad world’. That boy was me.<br /><br />Cult Escape has three sections; IN, OUT and SHAKE IT ALL ABOUT. The story starts with being born into the cult, the lifestyle, the rules, the coercion, the confessions, the disciplining, and the separation from the evil world. <br /><br />The IN chapters cover how it felt having to grow up in a strict religious cult, the laws we were all under, the difficulties of school life, the challenges of work life, and the coping mechanisms for ‘us young ones’ during the excruciating boredom of eleven meetings every single week! One of my distractions was, believe it or not; I ate myself. I still have the scars. In that particular chapter called Funny Memories...; <br /><br />Such was the dry monotony for most of us young ones, we were always on the lookout for anything to break the boredom. The following are a few memories and funnies of such happenings, which though may sound ridiculously insignificant to you, were some of the highlights of our life of conformity, restrictions, rules and regulations.<br /><br />Here you will read about Sandy Huckley’s buns, the fate of all those who watched Charles marry Diana, the passage we could look up and the Yawn Show. Yes, all weird stuff, the things intelligent people can get up to when they allow a man they call The Universal Leader to control their hair length, their shaving habits, their house drains and convince them it would be wicked to have a cup of tea with their neighbour.<br /><br />The OUT chapters describe the new and exciting world I was now free to explore, how my head got free from the cult indoctrination, how my beliefs changed and three major healing experiences that I hope will help many who read this book.<br /><br />The controversial SHAKE IT ALL ABOUT chapters examine serious issues that seek to position religious controlling cults under the scrutiny of the public eye. Though religious cults are legal, how does society really feel about the splitting up of families, coercive indoctrination and brainwashing? What actually defines a cult? Why do they all believe they are the ‘right’ church? How can a person successfully leave a cult, even if they were born into it? Can anything be done to stop the control and abuse that goes on today? I believe that there is something the government can do and I make a legislation proposal in the penultimate chapter called The Religious Warning. Finally, the Conclusion which I offer for due consideration. In the words of Paul McCartney, ‘There must be an answer, Let It Be’.<br /><br />What will be the next big cult story to hit the news? Another suicide cult? Another family separation story? A friend of mine once testified in court that the cult he had been a member of had not informed him of his mother’s death, till three months after she was buried. The judge put his head in his hands and shook his head in disbelief. Something needs to be done about this. Let's get on with it.<br /><br />John Spinks<br /><br />

Marcus Aurelius was born in Rome in 121 AD and would become its Emperor from 161 to 180. Considered by Machiavelli as the last of the good Emperors, Marcus Aurelius would become one of the most important of the Stoic philosophers. <br /> <br />The "Meditations," which he wrote in Greek, are among the most noteworthy expressions of this system, and exhibit it favorably on its practical side. The work is a series of twelve books that he intended for his own guidance and self-improvement, which picture with faithfulness the mind and character of this noblest of the Emperors. Simple in style and sincere in tone, they record for all time the height reached by pagan aspiration in its effort to solve the problem of conduct.
