The End of Free Will

by Mike Owens

“You’re turning them into robots.” That’s what the principal said, and perhaps she was right. But what choice did Karin have? The way they looked at her, she knew, sooner or later they would come after her, these kids who had grown up on a steady diet of drugs and violence. Assaults by the teenage thugs that roamed the halls at Franklin High were now so common they had become second page news. But Karin had no intention of becoming just another grisly anecdote in the campus annals, not if she could help it. Besides, she had to get to them before they got to her, so she fought back with the only weapon she had…memes.

Bitchery

by Karmel Divine

â??Inhaling and then exhaling I place both of my hands on the hanger as Suki removes hers. I can’t believe how far it’s pushed into Suki as I stare down at the blood pooling below her ass. The end of the hanger hangs out of her with only enough room leftfor both my hands.

â??Suki has her shirt stuffed into her mouth as she looks down into my sad eyes. She nods her head giving me permission to pull it out.

â??With my hands soaked in my sister’s blood from the hanger, I pull the hanger out. Suki screams louder causing me to let go of the hanger and jump back, scared shitless.

â??Suki mumbles through her shirt and I place my hands back onto the hanger. Breathing deeply I push the hanger into my sister’s vagina slowly. Suki yells are muffled through the shirt, then her screams stop and she closes her eyes.

Hope Road (John Ray #1) (John Ray / LS9 crime thrillers)

by John Barlow

A gripping read… A fascinating study in dark and evil… The stuff of Great British grit and dark, dark humour â?¦ Barlow provides plenty of twists and turns before the truth is revealed. But what is most enjoyable about Barlow’s writing isn’t his story archs or plotting, but his characters, dialogue and sense of place… Beautifully cinematicâ?¦ far more cinematic than a McDermid or a Rankin.
Crimefictionlover.com

Barlow throws in plenty of twists before everything is untangled, since of course nothing in the case is exactly what it seems to be, and he spins the yarn in fast-paced, very readable prose. He also does a good job with the setting, the English city of Leeds, and made me feel like I’d been there. HOPE ROAD is a fine novel, the first in a series, and I look forward to reading the others.
Rough Edges

HOPE ROAD: a crime thriller – You can’t change your past. But what about your future?

John Ray, son of crime boss Antonio ‘Tony’ Ray, is the straight one of the family. With a successful business and a lifestyle to match, he wants nothing to do with his father’s criminal world. But what does that world want with him?

A young prostitute is found dead in John’s car, and Freddy Metcalfe, his best friend and employee, is framed for her death. Freddy denies everything but it’s an open and shut case: he’s going down for murder. John sets out to find the real killer.

But things get complicated. A stash of counterfeit money was also found in John’s car, and the police seem more interested in that than in the dead girl. Then Lanny Bride turns up; one of the north’s most ruthless criminals (and an old friend of the Ray family), Lanny is desperate to know who killed the girl. But why? Meanwhile, Freddy is too scared to talk to anyone, even his lawyer.

John’s police detective girlfriend, Denise Danson, has been warned off the case by her boss. But she doesn’t believe Freddy is guilty, and secretly helps John look for the murderer. The problem, though, is that uncovering the shocking truth about the girl’s death will force John to confront his own criminal past and risk destroying his future, as well as losing the only woman he’s ever loved.

A novel set in Leeds, this is the first crime-mystery in the LS9 series.

But how do you survive when everything you know has been destroyed… and the one person you thought you could trust ends up being the most dangerous person of all?



Love on a Wing and a Prayer

by T.A. Webb

Dear Author,

Even with the repeal of DADT, it is not commonly known that I am gay. Living on an aircraft carrier, surrounded by so many men in such close quarters, I worry that if my sexuality is known, most of them will subscribe to the narrow thinking that I am attracted to all of them. But there is one who has caught my eye and driven my senses into overload. The problem is that he is a fellow pilot. I don’t want to cause any issues in our working environment, and I don’t even know if he is gay, but I am drawn to him and cannot stop thinking about him. What I wouldn’t give for a stolen night together, but I long for even more than that because I am attracted to his personality, sense of humor, and strength of character as much as I am attracted to his physicality.

And then one day, his co-pilot gets sick, and I am told to fly with him. Will this time together possibly lead to something? I can’t help but hope that it does.

This story was written as a part of the M/M Romance Group’s “Love Has No Boundaries” event. Group members were asked to write a story prompt inspired by a photo of their choice. Authors of the group selected a photo and prompt that spoke to them and wrote a short story.

Adolescent Mental Health: Prevention and intervention (Adolescence and Society)

by Terje Ogden

Adolescence is a period of rapid growth, maturing individuality, vulnerabilities and fortitude. Fortunately, most youths go through this period of life in a healthy way, but some do not. Adolescent Mental Health: Prevention and Intervention is a concise and accessible overview of our current knowledge on effective treatment and prevention programs for youths who have developed, or are at risk of developing, mental health problems.



Ogden and Hagen’s introduction to “what works” in the promotion of adolescent mental health addresses some of the most common mental health problems among young people, and how these problems might be prevented or ameliorated through professional and systematic efforts. The volume illustrates contemporary and empirically supported interventions and prevention efforts through a series of case studies, and covers some of the most prevalent mental health conditions affecting today’s youth; externalizing, internalizing and drug use problems. Within an ecological and transactional framework, the book discusses how psychopathologies may develop and the risks and protective factors associated with these. The problem-oriented perspective on risk and mental health problems is combined with a focus on social competence and other protective factors.



Adolescent Mental Health: Prevention and Intervention will be essential reading for students and practitioners in the fields of child welfare and mental health services, and any professionals working with adolescents at risk of developing mental health problems.

Kauai Brief: Quickly Master What You Need to See and Do on the Island of Kauai (Vacation Briefs)

by Trip Stevens

Your Epic Kauai Vacation

Travel Guides come in many forms but when one stands out for sharing much more than conventional wisdom it becomes invaluable. Author Trip Steven’s unmitigated love and aloha for Kauai, Hawaii’s Garden Isle, permeates his travel guide, Kauai Brief.

This is much more than a â??what to see – what to do’ guide. Stevens touches on a few suggestions for lodging but more beneficially he provides links to multiple resources from finding the best airline fares to lodging options and condo rentals to where to buy what are included throughout the book. Rather than list 3 dozen restaurants he supplies the reader with a link to an island- wide comprehensive website that lists all the eateries with menu, location, price and hours. That translates into benefits for the visitor – every detail is current and accessible from your iPhone throughout your stay.

Kauai Brief gives the reader solid information along with straight shooting dos, don’ts and considers for various excursions. The author doesn’t sugar coat what is required to trek into or kayak the Na Pali Coast or to hike the Kalaua Trail. Nor does he write fluff about how easy traveling with toddlers can be. Yes, the Hawaiians love and dote on kids – but his readers are amply warned Kauai is an island; a hefty portion of activities revolve around the water. As a visitor you will spend a great deal of time at more than a few of the 65 stunning beaches that dot the island. Keeping hold of a toddler can try parental patience at the best of times; let alone an inquisitive little one at the beach when you want to relax.

Author Trip Stevens is honest. As a potential visitor to Kauai, be it your first or fifteenth visit, his candor alone make Kauai Brief well worth reading.

Stevens takes the reader through the three completely different areas on Kauai. He shares what he feels are â??must experience’ locations in an easy to read and entertaining style. The reader will get tips and takes on the Garden Isle that no other guide book offers along with needed information on everything from golf courses to lomi lomi massages to planning a destination wedding. As stated earlier, Kauai Brief does not overwhelm the reader; it offers pithy and factual comments and directs you to the best resources to pursue whatever you need for detailed information.

Throughout the book the reader will find any number of budgeting and cost saving tips and alternatives. He gently prods the reader to approach their Kauai vacation in a more open fashion than any travel guide I’ve seen. If you can save hundreds in air fares, car rental fees, accommodations and in the full range of activities on the Island why not make use of them? Included are things like easy-to-follow directions to the Costco and Wal-Mart near the airport so you can stock up on necessities upon arrival. Kauai Brief is jammed packed with these tips.

Throughout the pages are sprinkled wonderful tidbits of modern day legend – things like why there are so many brilliantly colored chickens on Kauai. And that Kauai is the only island on which there are no mongooses – a fact that this long time resident didn’t know. Stevens shares the tale of one of Kauai’s most enduring success stories – that of the Red Dirt T-Shirt. Stevens has the authentic story behind the phenomenon.

Kauai Brief is written with love, with Aloha and with a keen sense of Ohana for Kauai and her people. This shows in Trip Steven’s words and in his stunning photographs. Kauai Brief is a book to be read not only by the traveler but also by those that know Kauai and want to relive treasured memories.

    SILENCE: and Other Poems

    by Robert F. Needles Jr.

    This poem…scratch that, it is more of a story that I have devised from a video game and semi-popular or popular movie, using some of the characters, but in a way painting a very vivid tapestry of psychological horror, more nightmarish than realistic.

    Written within are a few more poems that I believe stay within such topic, so continue on avid reader.

    So enjoy the ride that is inside, but make sure to grab your pink bunny before falling asleep.

Decorated for his bravery during the final hours of the invasion and promoted to lance corporal, he is still troubled by his memories and haunted by nightmares. He finds himself unable to cope with life back on Earth, and so he returns to the red planet, the only place where he feels he belongs.

    But New Earth has changed as well. A growing insurgency threatens to turn the planet into a battleground once again, but this time the enemy has the ability to melt away into the population, and even turn the Union’s weapons against them. Nobody can be trusted, even old friends.

    Quickly swept up in the gathering storm Andy finds himself in the command of a section that resents his early promotion, and during the battle that follows his leadership, his loyalty, and even his faith in his comrades are put to the ultimate test in the face of an enemy that will stop at nothing.

    Save Me (Life After the Outbreak)

    by LJ Baker

    Andi was doing just fine on her own. Sure the world had been hit with an outbreak that turned anyone infected into flesh eating zombies. Not to mention that everyone she ever loved was now dead. She was alive though, taking care of herself. She had little desire to indulge in building relationships with anyone. People just couldn’t be trusted. Whether they screwed you over intentionally, or just managed to get themselves killed, no one stuck around for very long. She didn’t need anyone else either. That was until Will showed up to save her.

    Will, with his sparkling green eyes, lips you just wanted to taste, and insanely adorable crooked smile, wasn’t letting Andi get rid of him so easily. Yet still, Andi did everything she could to push her feelings, and Will, away. The more time they spent together though, the more difficult that became. In a world where another day was not something you could count on, wasting even a single moment, could mean missing out on your only chance for happiness.

    The undeclared war between the management and the scientists at the National Advanced Research Facility at Credicombe Down had inhibited progress in scientific research for years. Some of the researchers had managed to progress despite financial restraints and bureaucratic obstruction. The fledgling British space programme perceived by management as a satellite building project had pressed ahead with a far more ambitious endeavour. The true nature of their work would be more adventurous than the conservative management were prepared to support and so the progress was achieved by stealth and deception. They are forced to accept assistance from some unlikely sources and receive support from unexpected agencies.

    Intrusive regulations and aggressive management control conspire to distract the scientists from their main tasks. Undaunted the team find ways to circumvent the problems of their situation.

    In the face of obstruction by the internal agencies of safety, security and career development the progressive team battle to meet a deadline set by external events. To make matter worse the security clamp down threatens to expose their secret project to the enemy, their own management, before they are ready ‘to go public’. Their own security is challenged and threatened by a professional ‘spook’ with no interest in the science involved. There is, however, a way to engage the interest of even the most committed Luddite.



    Ball Busters Chapter Two (Dr. Tex Arcana)

    by Scott F Neve

    Tyre, Lebanon

    The adventure to change his life began with a bang! Tex Arcana was locked inside the pilot’s pod of his latest invention, a MOTHER symbiotic machine. The incredible earthmover was currently beneath thirty feet of azure water at the ancient causeway that connected the abandoned island to the city of Tyre. All morning long, he with two native lady scientists and a crew of a half-dozen local men had been working diligently on the sea floor.

    And then the miracle came like a bolt out of the blue. He moved the next huge stone block from the wall before him and then he caught a glimpse of a large trail of gold coins on the sea floor. They shined in the sunlight coming through the silt-clouded water like a street leading to heaven. He moved in for a closer look. The disturbing image on the glittering discs was of a malevolent man. His wavy hair was spiked up like twin horns on a human devil.

    Suddenly, something went wrong. A huge block from the top of the causeway fell on him. The three ton stone broke the airtight seal of the submersible. The lights went out along with the video link. His eyes were blinded by the spray. He was trapped and sea water was rushing into the compartment.

    Boiling Point Chapter Three (Dr. Tex Arcana)

    by Scott F Neve

    Damascus, Syria

    Will Holyfield the foreman for the famous millionaire said, “You know Tex. It wouldn’t kill you to get a hair cut. Pony tails belong on horses and little girls, not on a real man.” The barbershop was three blocks away from the high rise hotel. Tex was about to cross the road when a street beggar accosted him. As usual, he reached into his pocket while he paused to talk to the stranger. She was a teenager.

    Suddenly the spirit of Honey appeared behind the Arab teenager. The glory of his comatose wife surrounded the young woman with a heavenly aura. He faced the girl and began to cry with compassion. Tex spoke to his wife, “I love you. What do you want from me?” The girl began to weep too as she said, “I need help, please.”

    Then there was an explosion and a deafening roar. The renovated building collapsed into an excavation pit next to it. Three barbers and every patron were killed. The concussion smacked Tex like a rogue cyclone.

    Crazy Christians Chapter Fifteen (Dr. Tex Arcana)

    by Scott F Neve

    Petra, Jordan

    Queen Lenore encouraged him, “Never give up. You are so close.” “I never quit,” said Tex with a grin on his handsome face. He could hear the sound of the rope lowering the target back into place. Then he focused his spirit on the task at hand. He swung with all of his might. Tex hit the piñata and then it exploded with candy and fireworks. A tiny rocket grazed his ear leaving a scorch mark. The shockwave knocked him on his butt. The three women screamed in shock and dismay. The kids cheered as they scrambled to pick up all of the candy raining down in the old throne room. The men stood their ground like carefree gods. On queue, the orchestra launched into a victory tune. During the split second flash, Tex heard a verbal vision from heaven. The living words painted a saga in the spirit. He was instantly in the past with King Solomon of Israel and King Hiram of Tyre on their last voyage to Ophir.

    The verbal picture was narrated by Honey Arcana, but the person that Tex was focused on was the eldest daughter of Solomon. He somehow knew that her mother was Shulamith the princess bride from the Song of Songs. The young woman’s name was Sulmina. Her inner and outer beauty was beyond compare. In the wink of an eye the royal fleet was docked in the legendary land of gold. The new faithless ruler of Ophir hated Solomon and Israel, so he promised that there would be no more shipments. Ebony slaves loaded the golden cargo that was in the shape of six foot long rods and teardrop cannon balls. One small ship almost sank on the return voyage. After docking at the city of Ezion-Geber, the tiny ship was hoisted into dry dock for repair. The Israeli soldiers loaded the gold onto a well-guarded royal caravan. There were hundreds of pack animals, camels and wagons. King Hiram told Solomon honestly that he was also tired of giving to Israel. Then the caravan was attacked on the shoreline by Edomites. The empty ships were burned and then they sank beneath the waves. Hundreds of soldiers were killed by the sword. The kings and the royal guards escaped on horseback to the north. The treasure laden wagons were spirited away by the thieves.

    Inside of the vision, Tex fell in the path of the fleeing royals. The daughter of Solomon alone saw him. She tried to comfort him in her arms like a young mother. Sulmina whispered to Tex, “Praise God the Father of mercies. Now I can be free from the doomed destiny of my greedy father, the Preacher. He calls himself Ecclesiastes, but he is too late for me.” As the young woman ran away Tex asked the spirit of his wife, “Did she survive? What happened to Sulmina?” Reality slowly overcame him as Honey answered, “She escaped to her mother’s relatives in the vineyards of Baalhamon. She abandoned living in a palace for a real life overflowing with love, security and blessings.”

    Cute Boots Chapter Thirteen (Dr. Tex Arcana)

    by Scott F Neve

    Beersheba, Israel

    Tex strongly suggested that he and little Miss Payne use his new Hover MOTHER machine to elevate to their desired altitude. It was an antigravity diving platform that was designed for emergency air and sea rescues. She agreed and then she set the rules down for the game, “We will dive from 10,000 feet. The goal is for speed and accuracy. The first one to land on the target is the winner.” He asked, “What is the target?” She pointed at the glimmering hot tub in the back of Count Sago’s white limousine, “There.”

    After a few minutes of preparation, the two of them ascended on the Hover MOTHER to the height of ten thousand feet. They found it easier to kneel facing each other than to stand. The star-shaped ten foot around disc seemed to be lighter than air. The few tiny white clouds fell beneath them as they rose higher than the eagles. Just before the meter read 10,000 feet, she leapt off. Tex shrugged his shoulders and then he jumped as if he were doing a cannon ball into a big pool. He dropped within a few yards of her and he waved. He was bigger and his streamlined outfit gave him greater aerodynamics than the curvaceous girl. He got to within arm’s reach of her, and then she pulled the handle of his parachute. It deployed and he was jerked up as if he were a puppet on strings. She laughed at him to scorn. He shook his head as he watched the girl point her body like an arrow at the fast approaching ground. Then he activated the remote for the Hover MOTHER machine. It obeyed his every command like a magic bullet.

    He stepped gracefully onto the platform and then he lay face down and flat against the surface. He pressed a set of buttons and then the impossible happened. The thing began to fall like a broken elevator. It plummeted through the air with a loud whistling noise that scared the crowd to bits. The women screamed in horror. The rich men took cover behind their expensive butlers. The common people fell to their knees and sucked dirt as they prayed for deliverance. Amanda felt the down draft as Tex passed her within a few feet. She spun wildly out of control for a few seconds. But she did not know what caused the curious turbulence. By the time she recovered, she saw the target in sight. She pulled her chute and aimed for the white rectangular limo.

    Then she heard the crowd shout and a cloud of dust erupted from the target itself. She could not stop her descent to ascertain the reason for the disturbance, so she remained on her guard as she chose a direct approach for landing. One glance behind her told her that Tex was nowhere in sight. She had won. Then she gasped in horror and her eyes gaped open. The landing platform was now the new hood ornament on Count Sago’s limo. Tex was lounging in the hot tub with his chute billowing out behind him. In his hand was a bottle of champagne. She dropped into the warm water beside him and he caught her in his strong arms. He offered her the bottle. She took a big swig. And then she spit the warm sweet liquid all over his face. He said, “You almost killed me. Thankfully the emergency thrusters on the platform kicked in at the last second. I guess I’ll have to buy the count a new car, though.” Count Sago came over then shouting and applauding, before he said to his surprise guests, “That was the most outrageous performance of aerial tricks I have ever seen. You are without a doubt a devil, Mr. Arcana. You do not need to buy me a new limo. With the money that I won betting on you, I will buy a fleet of stretch limousines. Ha ha.”



    Dogged and Flogged Chapter Nineteen (Dr. Tex Arcana)

    by Scott F Neve

    Nineveh, Iraq

    Tex Arcana had become a nightmare creature. He remembered becoming drowsy while reading the book of Revelation. And then everything went silent as the grave and black as death. His soul died for an instant of time. Now he saw the world of the past from a sea monster’s eye view. He was a blue dragon with a serpentine body ten leagues long. His deep hunger could only be satisfied with vengeance. He stared down his prey and opened his mile-wide maw. He choked down the city of gold and its wicked inhabitants. Death and destruction came to all as if frozen in time. Then the serpent slowly evaporated. It returned to the earth as it became mud and clay. The gods of ancient Assyria watched from the nearby mountains. They feared the wrath of the one true God more than anything. The male and the female sphinx and the gryphon took their revenge. The terrible trio tore asunder the olive tree that grew beside the river of life-giving water. But they could not kill it or destroy it.

    Ages flashed by in the wink of an eye. The tree always grew back bigger and better. The Babylonian gods with dual shapes hid in the deep recesses of the earth. The gryphon had an eagle’s head, body and wings; plus he had a lion’s claws and tail. The gynosphinx was a giant eagle’s body, a lion’s claws and tail with a woman’s head and bust. Likewise, the androsphinx had a lion’s body, an eagle’s wings with a man’s head and chest. Their worshippers dwindled until they were almost extinct. Their temples fell into ruin never to be built again. The ageless gods waited knowing that their seeds of discord must produce a harvest. Honey Arcana drew her husband’s spirit back to the reality of today as she said, “The interpretation of the vision is this. The blue dragon is the Tigris River. The city was Nineveh in Iraq. Its treasures are in the river’s floor.”



    Doomed Dancer Chapter Sixteen (Dr. Tex Arcana)

    by Scott F Neve

    Babylon, Iraq

    “We haven’t heard from Mr. Arcana in three days,” explained Margo Magdalene the High Councilor of Rare and Precious Artifacts in Iraq. “Break that door down now!” her legal secretary Jeri Boam ordered the hotel manager. “He could have been kidnapped, murdered or worse,” implored Tex’s newest sidekick Wendy. It was the third young woman’s heartfelt plea that finally moved the manager to action. After unlocking the dead bolt of room 626 with his pass key, he kicked in the door which broke the chain. Tex was unconscious on the floor. The great American philanthropist and inventor was sprawled face down wearing just his boxer shorts and cowboy boots. He was murmuring unintelligible words as if he were talking to his comatose wife. It was not a language of this earth. The phone and TV were unplugged. The bed had not been slept in. The shades were closed tight. He was acting delirious as Wendy felt him for vital signs. Then she flipped him over. She said, “I think that Tex has been drugged.” “Or he’s really drunk,” said Jeri as she shook her head. Margo touched his brow as she said, “Either way he’s as high as a kite.” The manager summed up their thoughts as he said, “I wonder what Mr. Arcana is thinking right now.”

    The spirit that was the real Tex was floating on a cloud. His senses were supernaturally infused and he was suffering from Double Vision. God gave Tex a mental map. His spiritual eyes were looking over ancient Babylon. The city was at the height of its splendor during the reign of King Nebuchadnezzar. The modern buildings did not exist yet. Honey Arcana was hugging her husband on that cloud that hovered above the tallest spire of the royal palace and pleasure dome. She was dressed like a dancer in the doomed king’s royal harem. She was whispering instructions to him. In return, he whispered words of love as he drank in the glory that emanated from her pure spirit.



    Extra Mile Chapter Nine (Dr. Tex Arcana)

    by Scott F Neve

    Salem, Israel

    Tex and Dahl ran screaming from the giant sewer crocodile. The scaly thing was over thirty feet long from its snout to the tip of its scarred tail. It could easily swallow a man whole. Tex emptied his revolver into the thick skull of it, but to no avail. She tugged on his sleeve for more speed as he tried to reload. He stooped down to retrieve the MOTHER spider that had been sent to scout ahead of them earlier that morning. The putrid sewer tunnels led down to a dead end. The couple skidded to a halt at the end of the line. Then they heard the offal tinged water draining into an opening in the floor at their feet. It was an ancient city well that had obviously gone bad. The croc followed on their heels until it fell into a cleverly hidden pit in the floor.

    It was skewered to death on the points of a hundred wooden stakes. Its death throws and gargled screams filled the air. Then all was silent. Suddenly the laughter of a madman came from behind them. A living skeleton approached without any sense of care for the couple. He was carrying a long pole with a noose on one end and a sharpened spike on the other end. Judging from the greenish ichor stained on the pole, he had been hunting many wild sewer crocs for some time now.



    Flaming Fagots Chapter Eleven (Dr. Tex Arcana)

    by Scott F Neve

    Vale of Siddim, Israel

    On the first morning they explored the northern part of the Dead Sea for the lost city of Admah. Almost at once Tex and Dahl gasped in disbelief at the incredible sight that met their eyes. Jagged spires of salt-encrusted buildings reached up from the floor of the Salt Sea. The white obelisks seemed to reach out for them like a dead giant’s grasping hands.

    Instead of a scream coming after the great intake of air, the couple hugged each other and laughed. Fear was nothing new to them. In fact it had become a way of survival in this strange land with its tapestry past. So many events had led up to the present and yet they all seemed intertwined with each other. It was definitely a divine connection from a supernatural plan.

    Tex gazed around them as he said, “It’s like flying through a milky tornado, but you can’t tell when a cow might jump up and hit you.”



    Gigantic Gonads Chapter Twelve (Dr. Tex Arcana)

    by Scott F Neve

    Gaza, Palestine

    Tex Arcana gazed through tear-stained eyes as he said, “God help me. I don’t know what is real or not anymore.” The night vision began with Tex as an invisible spirit traveling through time. He saw blind Samson with short dark hair being led by a lad into the Gaza arena. The three thousand wicked people were making sport of him. The five evil kings of Philistia ordered that the wild animals be released. Lions and tigers attacked him, but he defeated them barehanded.

    A rich Hebrew woman in a dark cloak watched from the shadows of the lowest colonnade. She lurked where the two middle pillars held up the four story-tall building that was like the Roman coliseum. She cried at the sight of the once-mighty man of valor being brought so low by his captors. The Philistine lords didn’t want him dead. The five demon-possessed kings wanted to torment the great judge of the Israelites for the rest of his natural life. At the sight of a secret signal, the woman sullenly followed the pagan kings. They left the arena floor for the lower levels. They were going to present her with a huge payment. It was meant to be the final pay off for her special talents and services. Her betrayal of the mighty man weighed heavily upon her grieving heart. She had loved him once upon a time, but money was the god of her future.

    Suddenly, Samson was moved to the place that she had abdicated. He bowed his head to pray before he toppled the two main pillars. The arena fell down like a stone house of cards. As the invisible spirit, Tex was invincible too. He followed the mysterious woman’s path down the ornate stairs. He penetrated through the tons of rubble to the next lower level. He watched the five kings give the reward to the mystery woman. She lowered her hood and she was revealed as Delilah, the only woman that Samson had truly loved. The earth quaked from the arena falling. The Philistine kings realized that they were trapped.



    Lilly Livered Chapter Eighteen (Dr. Tex Arcana)

    by Scott F Neve

    Susa, Iran

    “A storm is coming!” said Tex as he glanced out the enormous picture window. The swiftly approaching mile-high clouds easily cleared the natural mountain range. A wailing siren sounded from a distant mountaintop. It was as if an air raid was about to strike the Middle East city of Susa, Iran. In the restored palace, Governor Hannibal and Hannah Ashram tried not to act afraid. Yet they knew that a sand storm siren in this part of the world was not a warning; it was a death knell. The happy politician tried to remain calm, but Tex knew that they were happiest being themselves as a wicked king and his disobedient queen. Their friend and consort Sheik Lyle said, “Do not worry, American. It may be hours before we need to seek refuge in the wine cellar. Let us finish this game of billiards. Don’t spoil the evening with dread.”

    For the umpteenth time Tex wanted to punch the smug sheik right in the mouth. The man was an idiot in the natural, but he was a savant for evil and torture. The long haired sheik was strong, handsome and very charismatic. The governor wanted to be like the rogue young man. His simple demeanor was disarming especially to females like the queen of Susa and his new sidekick. But Lyle was evil to the core. Tex’s pretty new sidekick Ty said, “The devil is only trying to steal your heart.” Tex smiled the girl in the eyes and said, “No one can steal or break my heart. It already belongs to God and my wife.”

    Other Man’s Shoes Chapter Ten (Dr. Tex Arcana)

    by Scott F Neve

    Bethlehem, Israel

    “We’re going to die!” Cole Ashton Duskman shouted at Tex.

    The rich American ignored the panicked man’s words of fear. He was only acting as his temporary pilot in the two-seat aircraft. A piercing cry filled the cabin of the tiny air craft. The Christian mystic instinctively knew that sound. There was an evil spirit in the plane. A slight smell of burning tobacco and dung filled the air. The pungent odors made Tex’s stomach want to turn over and erupt. He said a quick prayer in the name above all names and then he focused his eyes on the controls. The bad smell abated as his passenger squirmed against his seat restraints. The gauges were dead. The control stick was like a slippery python in his grip. He fought against it by trying to pull it closer to his gut. His feet were firmly planted on the aileron’s pedals in hopes to bring the craft into the wind and gain speed. But nothing seemed to be helping. They were falling like a proverbial rock.

    Then Tex spotted the base camp in a field at the foot of a slope. His handsome face broke into a grim grin. He aimed the nose of the plane for it. Duskman almost swallowed his tongue. Then he spat out, “Are you nuts? You’ll kill us and them.” Tex said, “I’m almost sorry that I insisted on filling the tanks. Now we’re stuck in a bomb with wings.” The little plane made a spectacular crash landing in the grassy field. The landing gear was torn off when they impacted the banks of the brook. The plane flipped over onto its top. The tail section dug a furrow in the ground that looked like a grave big enough for two men. Then the wings broke off and the fuel began to spill in torrents. The overheated engine started to smoke. The two men barely escaped with the help of the lady ambassador before the thing exploded.



    R.I.P. It Up Chapter Four (Dr. Tex Arcana)

    by Scott F Neve

    Mount Carmel, Israel

    It was dusk on the seventh day of drilling in the vineyard on top of Mount Carmel near the ancient Immaculate Heart Convent. The roar of the sea crashing against the cliffs resounded for miles. Low lying cumulous clouds passed by slowly casting their shadows in the heavens. A gibbous moon beckoned the night creatures to come play and prey.

    Suddenly the drill made a loud noise as it encountered something new in the heart of the mountain. An unnatural gust of wind came blowing out from the hole. The sonar revealed a spider web of tunnels and caves. Tex triggered the switch to bring up the drill quickly. The steel rod was eradicated from the depths. Out of the six-inch round hole flew large flakes of gold and hundreds of shards of precious jewels.

    A light appeared behind the men in the truck. The spirit of Honey Arcana shoved both men out of the open windows. They dove out of truck’s cab and got temporarily tangled up in suspended grape vines. Then incredibly, a titanic blast of wind erupted from the opening in the mountain. The steel drill connected to the twenty-ton truck was tossed one thousand feet into the air like a toothpick thrown by an invisible giant. It eventually crashed to the earth a half mile away on the lower slope.

    Rivers Of Blood Chapter Five (Dr. Tex Arcana)

    by Scott F Neve

    Megiddo, Israel

    It was evening and the ruins of Megiddo were lit by a large crackling camp fire. The sounds of nocturnal animals hunting echoed in the air, but ignored by the circle of men and women adventurers. A raven-shaped cloud in the sky passed before the full moon that the starry night. The sweet aroma of s’mores and hot chocolate could not keep out the bitter cold that exuded from the tale told by a stranger.

    His olive skin was deeply tanned. His handsome face was crowned by a mass of wavy red hair and framed by a well-trimmed scarlet beard. His apparel was the robes of a tribal chieftain, yet his demeanor was that of a royal seer. His penetrating eyes saw all of the fears in the group. He could tell that they hung on his every word.

    Tex’s spirit snapped out of the spiritual lethargy when he smelled flowers. It was the scent of Jasmine. And then the angelic face of Honey appeared to him in the campfire flames. She was shaking her head. She was warning him about something or someone, but he could not understand, yet. Then the desert prince leaned toward the American and said, “Listen to my words Tex Arcana. I know the truth, because I was there. I saw the streams of blood flow.” Then the man vanished slowly before their eyes. The women screamed in fright.



    Sand Blasted Chapter Six (Dr. Tex Arcana)

    by Scott F Neve

    Shechem, Israel

    The earthquake rocked the world just before dawn. The ancient city nestled in the valley was taken off guard. The supernatural attack came as a thief in the night. Tex jumped from the bed in the hotel penthouse. He was a reluctant hero with a tendency to leap before looking. He was only five foot nine inches tall, but he was strong as a bull and tough as nails. His persona was a power packed combination in that he was handsome and true.

    The screams of men, women and children echoed around him within the trembling building. He ran out of his room for the emergency staircase. No one was in there yet. Suddenly the roof collapsed and the stairs were filled with debris and twisted metal. He retraced his steps to his balcony on the sixth floor. He leaned far over the railing to see the tree-line parking lot. His flatbed truck was parked and his equipment was safe. Another tremor rippled through the valley. The balcony began to separate from the building. Windows began to shatter.

    He judged his only option before he stepped up onto the edge. The balcony railing tore loose and plummeted down. He gauged his angle of descent just as he leapt at the nearest palm tree thirty feet below him. The wind whistled over his ears. His body did a freefall to the top of the palm where he crashed through the jagged leaves. He desperately wrapped his arms and legs around the trunk of the palm in order to slow down. The ground came up to meet him with a terrific whoop, and most of the air left his lungs. He cast off the pain and the tiny trails of blood as he lurched to his truck. He pulled off the big black tarp and then climbed aboard one of his newest inventions.



    Scarlet Sand Castles Chapter Seven (Dr. Tex Arcana)

    by Scott F Neve

    Jericho, Israel

    A haunted fog came over the City of Palms as Tex began the search for the hidden treasure of Jericho. The tendrils of the earth-bound cloud crawled from the banks of the Jordan River towards the ancient ruins of the old city. Dawn was just over the eastern horizon, but it seemed like an eternity away.

    Tex and Dahl were in a new two-seater submersible MOTHER machine diving in the Jordan River. A recent rain and the busy river traffic caused the waters to be filled with silt. It was like swimming in liquid mud. They could not see their hands or metal robotic arms before their faces. They had to rely totally on the MOTHER’s radar and sonar scopes to navigate. Dahl was afraid that she would touch one wrong button and get them killed.

    “The scope shows a small outcropping up ahead,” said Tex as he maneuvered them closer. Her heart raced as she scanned the display and said, “It’s just a bunch of rocks on the river floor.” He smiled broadly as they hovered above the objects and then he recited from memory, “In the book of Joshua chapter four and verse nine it says, And Joshua set up twelve stones in the midst of the Jordan in the place where the feet of the priests bearing the Ark of the Covenant had stood. And they are there to this day.” She hugged him quickly and gasped before she said, “Great Jehovah. A few of the stones have fallen. It looks like an arrow pointing towards the old city.” He moved the controls for them to surface as he said, “It is a marker that Joshua set up to show where the Children of Israel crossed on dry land. It points towards the original location of the old city and Rahab’s house in the wall.”



    Smoking Guns Chapter Eight (Dr. Tex Arcana)

    by Scott F Neve

    Bethel, Israel

    The young nun locked the door of the sanctuary behind them before they descended a set of stairs. The light of her lantern shined in a circle ten feet around them. They strolled by the bodies of saints from the past. It was spooky and cultural, but not as exciting as Dahl had hoped it would be.

    The trio moved deeper into the catacombs under the Byzantine church. They were in an area of the tombs with many ancient caskets of stone and bronze. The golden light reflected from the engravings like liquid fire. Their attention was drawn to one of the most magnificent tombstones in the place.

    “The silver name plate has not tarnished after all these years,” said Dahl as she held onto Tex’s other hand. Carrie said, “An oil lamp and an open scroll are the seal of Samuel.” “Which Samuel?” asked Tex as he pressed first the lamp and then the two sides of the scroll.

    Suddenly the front of the casket popped open as the seal was broken. Inside of the ancient stone coffer were over a dozen scrolls in protective gold cylinders. The fabric of the scarlet interior had rotted away to spider webs. The trio moved in close to inspect the hidden trove. Dahl hugged Tex as she gave him a smack on the cheek. She said, “Tex you big dunder head. You just accidentally discovered a treasure left behind by Samuel in one his ancestors’ graves.”



    Yellow Bellied Chapter Seventeen (Dr. Tex Arcana)

    by Scott F Neve

    Ur, Iraq

    “How dare you insult me and my family like this?” roared Charlotte the matriarch of Ur, Iraq. Suddenly the leading women of Ur society began beating the living tar out of Tex. He dared not defend himself or attack the three generations of irrational women. Deep down, he knew that he must have caused the whole mess. But for the life of him, he could not fathom the reason why.

    “How in hell did this happen?” Tex asked his soul in desperation. Meat and hummus, tea and wine, spoons and knives were flying from everywhere at him. A raw egg thrown by the cook hit him in the head. The gooey white and yolk dripped down his handsome face. He began to wipe it off with his red bandana. And then he remembered vividly the truth of how it all began.

    Transparent Universe

    by S.F. van der Meulen

    .

    Transparent Universe creates a three dimensional model of the Universe which explains all natural phenomena. Cosmology from particle to black hole using natural particles. Unlike today’s scientific models of particles which are intelligently designed and do not actually exist in nature. Transparent Universe has a revolutionary way to perceive the Universe in an all natural method.

    The human brain is by far more powerful than chalkboard mathematical equations. In the last 90 years the scientific model for the Universe has made little to no progress and today’s mathematical physicists have misconstrued fiction into facts. There are no special particles, the Higgs Boson doesn’t actually exist. Mainstream science makes use of intelligently designed particles which nature simply doesn’t build. There are no special dimensions. Time is just a mathematical tool. Time does not exist in the reality of nature. They have calculated themselves into a never ending building block that becomes ever smaller without an end. Today’s models are merely mock up models of particles and atoms and do not actually behave as such. Everything in the Universe is a shape. And not just any shape but that of a sphere. The book Transparent Universe creates a three dimensional model of particles, atoms and the Universe. Which a human mind can fully understand without the need of mathematical equations. This is the power of the human mind. A theory they can not code using chalkboard equations. However you can fully understand as the nature of the human mind is flexible. See light for what it is as you visualize your way into understanding the Universe. From a non intelligently designed, natural particle point of view.

    One very well known mathematician once build a theory that is still in use today. His words, “We can’t solve problems by using the same kind of thinking we used when we created them.” Such as it is, we won’t beat nature at its own game. Mathematics is merely shortcuts in the reality of nature. We can only hope to mimic the power of nature.

    As Transparent Universe is a book, there is another theory written inside. The second theory explains human nature from an instinctual point of view. The theory explains why not all humans are happy in today’s world. Why respect is key to happiness. A demonstration of respect versus a darker way of life and ultimately how humans can achieve real respect.

    Biology: Explaining Digestion and the Digestive System

    by Jonathan Clark

    The facts about the digestive system are nothing short of surprising, if not astounding. For example about ten litres of fluid are secreted into the digestive tract every day, this includes saliva (from the mouth); stomach juices (such as hydrochloric acid); bile (from the gall bladder in the liver) and pancreatic juice (from the pancreas).

    Also, the stomach produces juices which are very acidic (they are about pH2), and actually contain hydrochloric acid (remember that one from school science lessons?).

    Not only that, but the length of the human digestive tract is about nine metres – so it is about five times longer than the average human height; imagine all of that tubing coiled up inside you!

    In this age of obesity and poor quality food and drink bombarding us from all sides; I think it would be a good idea for Biologists and non-Biologists alike, to get an overview of what the digestive system is and how it functions. I really believe that knowing and understanding these kinds of things can better your well-being and health, through allowing you to make smarter choices when you eat; or when you feed your loved ones.

    I would also like you to wonder at the facts I laid out at the start; and to consider that our digestive system usually manages to cope fairly well with whatever we throw at it; whether it is a curry and rice; a chocolate bar; a Thanksgiving supper; and few pints of beer; and so on. That is really something to marvel at: I will next present to you: the human digestive system!

    Teleportation, from science fiction to science fact

    by Zoe Greener

    Have you ever wondered if it would be possible to be teleported just like in Star Trek? Amazingly, not only is it possible, but scientists at this very moment are doing such experiments!

    Ever since the TV series Star Trek introduced the idea of teleportation from one place to another via a matter transporter, many of us have been fascinated with the prospect that one day this may become reality. It’s true to say that Star Trek wasn’t the first time the concept of a transporter was used in a sci-fi series, film or book, but it is without doubt the catalyst which sparked the public imagination for this type of travel in real life. This book looks at the scientific processes and progress that has taken place which will take the Star Trek transporter from sci-fi into reality.

    Staggeringly enough scientists have now started teleporting particles exactly in the same way the Enterprise transporter does, opening up the possibilities for human teleportation within a comparatively short number of years.

    This book takes you through the history of the discoveries which have lead scientists to build that teleportation device, and explains in layman’s terms exactly how it works. It delves into some of the most complex theoretical principles of science but in a way easily understood by anyone who has even a basic knowledge of science.

    This book also looks at the most controversial and serious aspect of teleportation, and why it may stop anyone wanting to travel in such a way. By the time you have finished reading this book, you may well decide that the monetary costs are cheap in comparison to the human cost.

    Additional information;

    The author is now in the process of writing the next book in the series ‘science fiction to science fact’ (The Star Wars lightsaber, from science fiction to science fact), which will be published on Amazon.

His one love was the sea now, but it hadn’t been his only love. As he and his crew prepared for their first dive of the season to study the effects of offshore wave action near a small island in the Caribbean, the new researcher he had just hired was demanding everyone’s attention in more ways than one.

    …and Dr. Marielle Farnan…
    A passion for everything coral started with a childhood visit to the aquarium in her hometown of Chicago, and her new position on this crew would give her an excellent opportunity to gain the valuable experience she needed. Everything she had achieved was the result of the blue-collar Midwest up-bringing she received from her parents. She was tough and she knew what she wanted, but romantic relationships had always seemed to take a backseat to her hard work ethic.

    and a Dangerous Lapse in Judgment
    For Professor Eugene Thornsby and Dr. Marielle Farnan, the depths of the ocean below held a fate that neither of them could have imagined. Their knowledge, training and instincts would be tested and stretched beyond their limits as they battled each other and their surroundings. In their struggle they found that their need to escape was not the only need they both shared, it was something else they never expected. Ultimately one of them would make a decision that could mean the difference between life and death. Could they escape in time before something terrible happened, something that neither of them wanted to happen, especially nowâ?¦?


    “The Professor shined the flashlight around but the settling debris cut off the beam the same way fog does to headlights on land. Treading water slowly he hoped to feel Marielle moving nearby. Thankfully, he thought, she was not a graceful swimmer and he could feel her wild kicking ahead of him. Sure enough, he reached out and grabbed her arm pulling her into the tiny beam of light. He tried to calm her, squeezing her arm to get her to look at him but she just wouldn’t remain still.

    She wanted to get back to the entrance and see if there was even a tiny speck of light coming through that she might be able to push herself out of. She pointed frantically in the direction of where the cave opening used to be. But, calmly the Professor patted her shoulder. Keeping the beam of light close in between them he pointed it in the direction opposite what was the cave entrance. The light bounced off the tunnel walls around them and they could see what they thought was the floor, but the light was completely swallowed when he aimed it at the opening. For just a second they hovered there, looking into this daunting abyss.”

    No Light

    by Devi Mara

    “Name?” he demanded.

    “Sarah Mackenzie.” She swallowed hard. She would be like the ones who had fallen, her remains something to be cleaned from the floor.

    “Age?”

    She tried not to tense when he brought his face to her neck and inhaled deeply.

    “Twenty-two.” The lie tried to stick in her throat.

    He pulled back and gave her a dark look. “Try again.”

    “Eighteen,” she whispered, tensing when his lips pulled back from his teeth in a shark smile.

    “A lie, Sarah? How nice that you are not as innocent as you look.”

We are invited to share in the rekindling of their love through the eyes of one of the lovers, as she confides in the reader her innermost thoughts. Poetry is woven throughout this writing as the writer creates a sense of the main character’s thoughts drifting and scattering throughout the rekindling of this relationship, as occurs in real life.

    The List: The Construction Worker

    by Sidney Stark

    From the moment I first laid eyes on him I was desperate to make him mine. Ruggedly sexy, Robert was young, but much too old for me. Our age difference would be difficult to overcome, eventually though, Robert would surrender to his primitive urges and the relationship that was kindled would be stronger than even I could have imagined.

    The List takes a fresh look at modern day romance as it breaks the boy meets girl boundaries and follows Randi as she navigates the “real world”, while harnessing her infatuation for one night stands, friends with benefits, and the salacious world she has longed for. Pushing the envelope one lusty tryst at a time, Randi checks off her conquests one by one, as each interlude becomes racier, sexier and more forbidden than the last.

    As Randi ticks down her checklist, Greg, her one and only is never far from her thoughts. But he is volatile and burdened by demons so sinister that their time together is tumultuous and explosive. Leading Randi astray into the arms of other men, she knows she is too young, and too naïve for what Greg has to offer, at least for now.

    The nine book series offers a dynamic insight to relationships, each unique and seductively sinful, as Randi pursues the unbridled chase and the one who captured her heart from the very beginning.

    Can You Turn A Werewolf Gay? (Wayward Moon)

    by Skye Eagleday

    Blake is a hot and horny werewolf who is great at keeping his Supernatural identity a secret. But he’s not nearly as good at hiding the fact he’s slept with his girlfriend’s best friend. Now Liz is after revenge via local legend: Stan the Man. It’s said Stan can turn a straight man gay. Liz doesn’t believe that but blackmailing Blake into the public humiliation of man on man action is good enough for her. What neither one knows is that Stan the Man has a special secret of his own that will change Blake’s life forever.

    (This is an adults only story that features extensive and graphic sexual behavior between a bed-hopping horndog werewolf and a character with one of fiction’s largest packages. There’s a jealous girlfriend behind the scene manipulating dude-on-dude action, but she’s not prepared for the consequences.)

    Excerpt:

    I hated my life. I hated agreeing to Liz’s terms. But I have to admit I deserved this. I just couldn’t keep my Little Blake in my pants when it came to the ladies. But Liz was the very best I’ve ever had and I just didn’t want to let her go. When she came up with the idea of punishing me so we could move forward I agreed right away. I’m not a potential alpha. What can I say? I’m from a Pack where I respond to discipline and someone dominant. It’s like my job description. Which is why I’m in a gay club wearing Liz’s silk pink panties under my jeans. They actually felt good. Of course as a werewolf I almost always went commando. Silk panties were a really new experience on several levels.

    I sniffed around once more, hoping there would be no Supes in the club to witness what Liz was putting me through. All I smelled were humans. I looked at Liz bringing over another round. She was wearing a tight outfit that showed off her smoking hot body. Her hair was shiny from the reflection of the dance lights. A purple scarf fluttered around her beautiful neck. It was as if she was covered in sticky tape that caught every eye and dragged them along wherever she went. She was gorgeous. I had seen the framed cover of Liz on the front of a chick magazine. I was pounding a professional model.

    I’m a werewolf. I’m possessive. It’s a werewolf thing. It felt amazing to know everyone wanted Liz but she’d be going home with me. I might never be an alpha but I could sure as hell be more bad ass than any human male in the club. I smiled at her as she set another drink in front of me. She took a sip of hers. “Drink up, Blake. I’m about to enjoy some dancing.”

    I started to get up but she put her little hand on my chest and pushed me back into my seat. “I said I was going to enjoy dancing. I didn’t say It would be with you. You’re here as punishment, remember?” Her eyes looked harsh and unforgiving. I responded as if she were my alpha and automatically lowered my own eyes.



    Haunted Home Renovation 1 (Paranormal Erotic Romance)

    by W.H. Cross

    Jan’s life had become so empty since her husband Rick died. Her psychologist said that it was because there hadn’t been any closer for the relationship. Rick’s heart had given out suddenly, his hard drinking and chain smoking lifestyle catching up with him in a sudden a fatal heart attack. Jan remembered him most for being a talented poet with a good heart. But there had been a darker side to Rick. The depression he suffered from was the kind that came on suddenly with little to no warning, the kind that made people lock themselves for rooms for days at a time. Jan had tried to be there for him, but now she wondered if she had tried hard enough.

    She went through her day to day life with a fake smile on her face trying to think about all the positives things that were going on in her life. Her career was taking off, as an architect she was renowned commercially and revered among her peers. The sweeping landscapes she helped design for the Vatican’s mega-rich congregation were lucrative beyond her wildest dreams; she wanted for nothing, but her needs had become somewhat eccentric. After talking with her family for a while about it Jan decided to take a few years away from the architecture field to find herself. Jan worried that maybe it was too much like pseudo new age mysticism for her own liking, the whole idea that someone can become closer to themselves by dropping out of the rigors of whatever life they’d built for themselves. The idea was one that she yearned to explore, though, even with the anxiety that seemed to come from the idea.
