STORIES FROM THE LIFE OF JESUS, BY HIS MOTHER: Edited by Christopher Antony Meade

by Christopher Antony Meade

When Jesus Christ incarnated into this world, to redeem it, He had two major assets. First he was the Son of God and secondly, in Mary the Mother of God, He had a very special mother. People often forget about Christ’s mother. She must have had a lot to put up with from having a Divine Son. The Blessed Virgin’s road to Paradise can’t have been very smooth, but there must have been a few laughs along the way. This book tells some stories of Christ’s life from the point of view of his ever-loving, but frequently exasperated, female parent. Much of the humour, that is absent from the Bible, is presented. (Not everything went as smoothly as related in the Good Book).

From the Annunciation to the Crucifixion and beyond, Our Lady must have lived a rollercoaster ride of a life. It can’t have been easy to be the Mother of Christ. (Although having a Son with miraculous powers must have been useful at times).

Laugh and cry with the Mother of God and meet some memorable characters along the way, like Jesus’s dodgy grandmother and less than salubrious relations. There are also some extra miracles that didn’t get mentioned in the Holy Book. This book is here to show episodes in the Life of Jesus Christ in a way not covered in the books of the New Testament and it is a tribute to His Blessed Mother, without whose acquiescence no part of His remarkable life could have happened. We must remember that Mary, as well as being the Mother of the Redeemer, was a human being and was subject to all the frailties and frustrations of any overwrought mother.

This is a book that was written, not to diminish the love we should have for God, but to show that it’s alright, sometimes, to laugh at Him, (or with Him).

If God has a sense of humour, He will love this book. (If not, I hope, His Blessed Mother will put in a word for me).

Porch Posts: Memoirs of Porch Sitters

by Diane Moore

A book to delight inveterate porch sitters, people who enjoy relaxing and meditating on a small porch or sitting with families and friends on Victorian style verandahs, telling stories and “taking the air.” These essays by two southern women who have long extolled the virtues of porch sitting include descriptions of various porches, stories told on, or centered around, the porches of childhood and later life. The vignettes are set on porches ranging from those fronting southern homes to two international porches in Iran and Qatar, from contemporary glass porches to the porches of Acadian history. The vignettes are quaintâ??some humorous, some tragicâ??but all incite memories of good times and relaxed hours “just porch sitting.” The cover is a photograph of glasswork rendered by Karen Bourque of Churchpoint, Louisiana, and the text includes eight whimsical illustrations by Paul Schexnayder of New Iberia, Louisiana.

HAWK & MOOR TRILOGY – The History of Dungeons & Dragons

by Kent David Kelly

THE CREATION of the world’s preeminent Fantasy Role-Playing Game (FRPG), Dungeons & Dragons, is one of the most fascinating tales to be told in all the shared histories of entertainment, play and game design. Two very different men, David Lance Arneson and Ernest Gary Gygax, undertook an unprecedented collaboration which gifted us â?? as their shared legacy â?? with one of the most intriguing games the world has yet experienced. Their game did not just simulate one isolate corner of reality; it dared to encompass the entirety of all realms of adventure, the consensual playground of the human imagination.

HAWK & MOOR tells the story of Dave and Gary, and the many other people whose efforts gave first life to the game we know and love today. Arneson had spectacular ideas, but Gygax knew how to refine them. Collaboration soon turned to conflict as Arneson believed his game was being taken from him, and Gygax crystallized systems where incomprehensible riddles had stood before. Both men were creative geniuses, but the game they created from Gygax’s Chainmail (1971) was the end result not only of their teamwork, but also of their clashes and disagreements.

The HAWK & MOOR series chronicles that first legendary game to arise from the Golden Age of Fantasy Role-Playing. This is a special trilogy edition, featuring the full texts of Books One, Two and Three in a single comprehensive volume.

The tale begins with HAWK & MOOR Book One, The Dragon Rises. Herein you will find Gary’s life story, the history of Gen Con and the Castle & Crusade Society, and details concerning the conception of Castle Greyhawk. This first book also includes new revelations pertaining to Arneson’s Blackmoor and its influences; tales from the Blackmoor Dungeons and Loch Gloomen; details on Gary’s first dungeon adventure; an exploration of the links between H. P. Lovecraft, Robert E. Howard, and the earliest underworld adventures; the secrets of the asylum which inspired Castle Greyhawk; and much more.

HAWK & MOOR Book Two: The Dungeons Deep tells the tale of all that came after Blackmoor in the World of Greyhawk. Herein you will find the adventures of Robilar, Tenser, Terik, Murlynd, Lessnard, Quij, Otto, and Zagyg the Mad himself. Mysteries such as the Old Guard Kobolds, the orc hordes, the Thouls, the Black Dragon Labyrinth, the Great Stone Face, the demon lord Fraz-urb’luu, the Jeweled Man, the Nine Demigods, the Isle of the Ape, and the slide to Cathay are all explored as well.

HAWK & MOOR Book III: Lands and Worlds Afar spans the years 1973 through 1975, when TSR surged forth to conquer the wargaming industry and to spread the hobby of fantasy role-playing far and wide. A tragedy in January 1975 forced the reformation of TSR, planting the seeds which would cause E. Gary Gygax to lose control of the company in the even wilder years to come. This devastating loss was worsened by aggressive legal challenges brought forth by the estate of Edgar Rice Burroughs. Nevertheless and through it all, TSR soldiered on. This book is not just a compendium of business maneuvers, however; it is a chronicle of adventure. The dread domains of the Tomb of Horrors, Castle Greyhawk, the Temple of Elemental Evil, Dungeonland and the Temple of the Frog are all unveiled herein through the eyes of Ayelerach, Bigby, Burne, Erac, Erac’s Cousin, Jaroo, Mordenkainen, Robilar, Rufus, Tenser, Terik, Yrag and many other heroes of the Greyhawk campaign.

Together, these volumes comprise 202,300 words on over 500 pages, supported by over 1,300 footnotes and annotations.

The adventure begins here. Prepare yourself, take up torch and sword. Come along and experience an unprecedented journey into the Golden Age!
