Murder and a Song (A Pattie Lansbury Cat Cozy Mystery Series Book 2)

by Nancy C. Davis

If you love animals, especially cats, you will enjoy this cozy mystery series

The peace and quiet of Little Hamilton is about to be shattered. June is the month of the enormous YorkFest music festival, an annual excuse for camping, partying, merriment â?¦ and even murder.
When a man is murdered in their tent, all evidence points towards his girlfriend as the culprit. She pleads innocence, and calls on Patricia Lansbury, the village’s resident sleuth, to find the real murderer. But as the mystery unfolds, Pattie is met with more questions than she is answers. For example, how is a drunken farmer involved? Could there be one – or more – murders in the heaving festival campsite? And why does Pattie’s gut tell her that the farmer’s cat is the key to solving the whole mystery?

COMRADE STALIN GOES TO CHURCH, SPECIAL EDITION: Contains Bonus Material (The Comrade Stalin Stories Book 2)

by Jamie McNabb

Many decades after his death in 1953, Comrade Stalin finds himself in an Orthodox church, locked in a furious debate with St. Seraphim of Sarov, one of Russia’s more popular saints. As a former seminarian and dedicated Marxist revolutionary, Comrade Stalin is able to make his case against the Church; however, he is up against a man of limitless spiritual insight, and deep religiosity, a man, a saint, in possession of an intensely rational mind and unparalleled courage. It would also seem that being dead for many, many decades has provided both men with unexpected experiences and unexpected insights.

This is an idea story as opposed to a plotted story. It grew out of an exercise in setting as the expression of character and floating points of view. Therefore, the shift from third-person to first-person narration and the shift from Comrade Stalin’s point of view to St. Seraphim of Sarov’s point of view were done with the parameters of the exercise in mind.
Needless to say, the Stalin portrayed in this story is an old softy compared to the Stalin of history. On the other hand, who can say how being dead for several decades might affect someone’s personality?

St. Seraphim of Sarov (1754-1833; canonized in 1903) is a popular Russian saint, both inside and outside of Russia. His discussion with Motovilov in the snow has come down to us. Known primarily within Eastern Orthodox Christianity, it forms one of the key treatises on the Holy Spirit and the purpose of the Christian life, namely, to acquire the Gifts of the Holy Spirit. As with Stalin, my depiction of St. Seraphim is wildly at odds with the historical figure. For one thing, I doubt that St. Seraphim was plagued by the degree of doubt depicted here. For another, I have vastly understated his powers of perception, spiritual insight, and loving kindness. He was, indeed, a true staretz.

As far as I know, Sima is the accepted Russian diminutive of Seraphim. Soso was one of Stalin’s nicknames, especially in his younger years.
