*****

Standing less than five feet tall and never weighing more than 95 pounds, Bonnie Parker was a malicious animal with a taste for blood; from the time she was old enough to inflict damage on another human being.


When she was ten years old, Bonnie exchanged insults with a boy named Noel. Noel had the good sense to walk away from the confrontation. But Bonnie followed him into a drug store and proceeded to beat the crap out of him. Her cousin, Bess, was with Bonnie, but she was powerless to prevent her cousin’s vicious attack.


Bess later said, “When a passing neighborhood woman separated them, Bonnie had a razor blade in her hand and was threatening to cut Noel’s throat, if he ever made her mad again.”


When she was just days short of her sixteenth birthday, Bonnie married a hardened gangster named Roy Thornton. With Thornton frequently being in and out of jail, and also possessing a roving eye for other women, Bonnie soon gave up on their marriage.


Although she never divorced Thornton, months after her nineteenth birthday, Bonnie hooked up with a short, skinny, pimple-faced, homicidal maniac named Clyde “Schoolboy” Barrow, who longed to be a mobster in the mold of his idol, Pretty Boy Floyd.


In the early 1930s, Bonnie and Clyde, employing a revolving crew of killers, committed murder and mayhem in mid-America; robbing banks, gas stations, and stores, and leaving numerous people dead, including nine law enforcement officers.


There is no doubt that Bonnie was just as brutal a killer as Clyde. In 1934, after the Barrow Gang killed two highway patrolmen, Bonnie hovered over one of the dead cops and fired another bullet into his head.


Then, while giggling, she said to Clyde, “Looka there! His head bounced just like a rubber ball!”


Finally, Bonnie and Clyde’s luck ran out. When they were ambushed and slaughtered while they were riding in their stolen Ford, a total of 150 bullets were fired by lawmen. Clyde was hit 17 times, and Bonnie was riddled with 26 bullets.


It couldn’t have happened to a nicer couple.

Aleister Crowley: Lore and Lies

by Connor Sansby

Aleister Crowley remains one of history’s most alluring targets for speculation, rumour and fabrication, but who was the real Crowley? Combing through Crowley’s journals, letters and contemporary accounts, Lore and Lies presents an unbiased account of Crowley’s life, seeking to neither demonise nor sanctify the life of this intriguing character, allowing the reader to draw their own conclusions about one of history’s most controversial characters.

Born into money, Crowley set out on a journey to conquer the world and the sickness that blighted his childhood, both physically and spiritually.

The influence of Crowley can still be seen in the modern day occult, from his work on Tarot, Yoga and Kabbalah; still considered by many to have written the definitive works on many magical topics.

But Crowley’s contributions to pop culture cannot be overlooked, inspiring iconic musicians such as Jimmy Page of Led Zeppelin and David Bowie to more modern artists like Jay-Z, wearing his infamous motto: “Do What Thou Wilt”.

Though it had taken a few years to understand what she’d meant, it finally came clear one day that Flora had wanted the legacy of her faith, tradition, and family to live on and not be lost.

Latino Music is an eBook about the family Flora had inspired with her passion, with her history, and with her being. She had loved music and dance and they’d had their place in every aspect of her family’s life.

Everyone has threads from generations past. And when the stories aren’t shared, they die. Flora’s wish was not just for her family to remember their roots and foundation, but for everyone to carry the stories forward to the next generation.

Music and dance are loved by all. And to hear a song can invoke a memory decades old. Flora saw music and dance as a wonderful way to share the past with the present. In reading Latino Music, you are taken on a journey through one family’s rendezvous with traditions and their meaning to the future. In this book, you, too, may find the memories you’d like to pass on to the next generation.

23 Days: A Memoir of 1939

by Antoni Joe Podolski

23 Days are the wartime memoirs of Antoni Jozef (Joe) Podolski

written by him some 44 years after the outbreak of World War 2 in 1939.

It records his fight against the invading Russian Army, his subsequent

capture, imprisonment and brutal interrogation before being sentenced

to death and spending 23 days on death row in a prison in the town of Orsha, Russia.

A reprieve condemned him to the Vorkuta Gulag in the Arctic Ural

Mountains. His subsequent escape to England via Finland is described

followed by details of his return to Europe through Lithuania as a

member of SOE. Finally a reunion with Polish Forces in the Middle

East was made possible after the Nazi invasion of Russia caused the

Soviets to become an uneasy ally of Poland.

Polish Air Force at the tail end of hostilities, all by the ripe old age of 22.

He died in Norfolk in 1999 aged 76.

Cacilda, Adventures In Paradise: Mozambique (Volume One Book 1)

by James Marren

We had spent weeks in Louisiana loading a cargo of corn before we finally got underway, bound for the East Coast of Africa. We were tramping, picking up cargo wherever we could. Orders and destinations could change at any time and there was plenty of that on this voyage. Sailing into a new foreign port is always an adventure, especially if you’re delivering grain; you could be in port for days with plenty of opportunities to get ashore. This is the story of one such port.



Daughter Of Promise

by Rachel Steer

A beautifully painful novel about love and loss, healing and redemption, about a family that only grows stronger in spite of the tragedy that threatens to tear them apart, and about a mother’s desperate love for her children.

“If I could have talked, I would have told the nurse that my life was over. I would have begged for my perfect family to go back to the way it had been. I would have pleaded to know the future, and cried to hold my newborn daughter. I would have screamed that this was not how it was supposed to be.”

Torso Art and War a Memoir

by James Marren

In January 1968 I was compelled to leave art school due to a lack of funds. Consequently my draft status was changed from 2-S (Student deferment) to 1-A (Soon to be called up).

I moved to Chicago and found work in a small in-house ad agency. A few months later I received a notice from the Selective Service Agency to report for a pre-induction physical. I knew that if I didn’t get back into college soon I would be drafted.

After having sent out a number of college applications I found a fat envelope stuffed into my mailbox. I opened it; “Greetings From The President Of The United States”.

I was inducted into the Army in January 1969 and within a year I was on my way to Vietnam. My luck had run out.

The story revolves around the construction of a sculpture, the “Torso” referred to in the story’s title. We all had our own ways of coping with the almost surreal environment that we had been dropped into, a sort of “parallel universe” that I refer to in the story, where all the rules we had learned before no longer applied. The “Torso” becomes somewhat of a metaphor throughout the story: prostitutes (torso-living), burning monks (torso-dying), body counts (torso-dead).

The military seeks to confine your individualism, it has to; it can’t afford to have a bunch of people running around doing as they please. Still, if you tried hard enough and were lucky, sometimes you could maintain a sense of self. That was part of my goal in building that sculpture. It wasn’t escapism (at least not altogether) but rather a rejection of the politics and a reflection of the war and what we had become. it was a direct result of the experiences that I had.

The United States was in turmoil during this period: college campuses were hot-beds of anti-war protesting, civil rights marches often degenerated into violent confrontations and the authorities had their hands full trying to maintain order. All of this was reflected in the Army in Vietnam.

I make no claim that my experiences were the norm, nor do I claim that they were unique. I simply record what happened.

Running From the Hand of Man: The Bob Weddell Story (Windriver Series 11)

by Dan Landeen

This book is dedicated to the memory of an outdoorsman named Bob Weddell who passed away in 2008. Bob was a great story teller and the reader will find his fishing and hunting stories and experiences to be both educational and illuminating. He spent the first 30 years in northern California and the remaining time in northern Idaho in a home very close to his beloved Clearwater River in Orofino, Idaho. Bob was one of the first truly great steelhead fly fishermen on the Clearwater River and was probably the first angler to use the “grease lining” technique that he learned from Walt Price in the 1950s.

The only Bob Weddell stories that have been published up to this point are those found in the Nez Perce Country Steelhead Fly fishing book that I wrote in 2006. Those stories only represent a small number of the stories and interviews that I had on file and recently I decided that I needed to write a book dedicated to Bob’s memory.

Bob was a very good storyteller and those who love fishing and hunting will appreciate his experiences that include hunting, steelhead fishing, salmon fishing, fly fishing for tarpon and more. Bob was very opinionated and several of his stories express his philosophy on a myriad of subjects. All of the stories in this book are from Bob’s own mouth, just as he told them.

After having several conversations with him I am confident that he is easily in the top 3 if not higher of men who have caught the most steelhead on a fly on the Clearwater and Snake Rivers in Washington and Idaho. Bob prided himself on “telling it like it is” and I have no reason to doubt his stories about all the fish he caught.

Bob’s salmon and steelhead stories from his early days in northern California were very illuminating not just because of the stories but he had a lot of information about other notable anglers he had fished with over the years including Bill Schaadt who in the opinion of those who knew him considered him the greatest fly fisherman that the United States has ever produced. Bob fished with Jim Adams, Walt Price, Duke Parkening, Jim Green, Russ Chatam, Tom McGuane, Woody Sexton, Stu Apt, Page Brown, and many others.

If you read the stories carefully you will get a handle on Bob’s personality and the values that he lived his life by. Bob was not an easy person to get close to. He had a very low opinion of the human race in general and tended to be a loner. He was a very selfish person and he wasn’t a great humanitarian. He wanted to be left alone and do his own thing. His attitude was that he didn’t want to put trust in anyone because sooner or later they would do something to disappoint you. He often made the comment that he had spent his whole life running from the hand of man and we both agreed that would be an appropriate title if I ever devoted a book to his stories.

Part of his cynicism was based on the environmental degradation that he observed and took very personal. He witnessed the demise of many salmon and steelhead rivers and the mighty redwoods in California. When he observed that the game and fish agencies in the west were basically “toothless tigers” as he liked to say, he swore he would never work for those agencies and he didn’t. He was of the opinion that when it came right down to it the dollar ruled the world and everything else was just window dressing.

Rogue Mobster: The Untold Story of Mark Silverman and The Boston Mafia

by Mark Silverman

Mark Silverman grew up in the Boston underworld, under the tutelage of the Winter Hill Gang in Somerville, and the inner circle of the Boston faction of the Patriarca Mafia family. Rogue Mobster is a firsthand account of the violent Boston mob wars of the 1990s, when bodies were piling up across New England and Mark was walking a tightrope between Winter Hill and the Mafia.

An amazing journey through the underworld of New England/Boston/Providence/Rhode Island/Massachusettes and the various crews of LCN & the Winter Hill Gang. Irish gangsters and Men of Respect operating in close proximity yet each respecting the other while everyone makes a dollar. This is not your, “run of the mill” tale or the same old story and names just re-arranged. “Rogue Mobster” tells the story of a young up and comer, with connections to the Irish Winter Hill Crew that can be compared to those that Henry Hill had in “Goodfellas”. As a youth surrounded by top gangsters, both of Irish and Italian heritage, this half Sicilian, 1/4 Jewish and 1/4 Portugese, makes his way through the treacherous days of the New England Mafia wars; the young renegades who feel that the old regime’s time has come and gone, and now want their turn running things as well as the diabolical two faced James “Whitey” Bulger and his Federal Bureau boys. Tumultous times to say the least, add into the mix the fact that the recognized leaders of LCN tap Mark to be their eyes and ears, due to his business proximity with the renegades and the fact that he himself is an up and comer, earning with both hands and enjoying himself along the way. As the saying goes, “keep your friends close, but keep your enemies closer”, this is a lesson that Mark always kept in mind, and it helped save him while out in the streets making a living. This is not your usual organized crime novel, it’s material is refreshing and the facts/details he divulges are a change of pace from the average book. If you are a true crime fan, this is a must read, not much is published about the Winter Hill Gang so be ready for some new names and the ‘usual’ ones also.
