The Women of Death Row: A Collection of True Crime Stories

by Georgia Spinola

An Anthology of True Crime
A look back at some female convicts who either served their time on death row or deserved to be there…VELMA BULLARDIn Lumberton, North Carolina, Thomas Burke fell victim to a house fire which was caused by a burning cigarette. Investigative authorities thought that he had fallen asleep while smoking, leaving thirty-eight-year-old Velma Burke as his widow.
They didn’t know that the fire was set by Velma.
Velma knew how to play the part of the grieving widow. She cried and gave the authorities the requisite crocodile tears. No one would believe that the murder of Thomas Burke would set off a series of killings performed by the seemingly kind and harmless church-going woman with the soft voice. CHRISTA PIKEChrista Gail Pike, born 10 March 1976, currently sits on Tennessee’s death row for the murder of Colleen Slemmer, 19, on 12 January 1995. The murder occurred when Pike was 18 years old. Pike and her then-boyfriend Tadaryl Shipp who was 17 at the time of the murder were convicted of Slemmer’s murder and conspiracy to commit murder. Another friend of the defendants and the victim, Shadolla Peterson, also 18 at the time, was convicted as an accessory after the fact and given six years’ probation after turning informant. Pike was sentenced to death by electrocution in 1996 and, at the time, she had the distinction of being the youngest woman ever to be sentenced to death, in any state and only the second women given the death penalty in Tennessee.

CAMILLA: PRINCESS OF WALES: A Camilla Parker Bowles Biography

by Katy Holborn

Camilla Princess of Wales: A Camilla Parker Bowles Biography

Her Royal Highness The Princess Charles, Princess of Wales and Countess of Chester, Duchess of Cornwall, Duchess of Rothesay, Countess of Carrick, Baroness of Renfrew, Lady of the Isles, Princess of Scotland.

Quite a mouthful for a girl who used to enjoy a smoke on the roof of her school in London.

Camilla Parker Bowles has led a full life. It takes a lot to turn from being the cause of public ire to a very well-loved royal in less than a generation, but that is something that she has, remarkably, achieved.

Both she and Princes Charles might have been delivered by the same doctor, but their bond grew even tighter as they got older.

In this biography we will examine the evidence as to whether it was Camilla who was behind the break up the â??fairy tale marriage’ of Charles and Diana Spencer.

We will see whether the criticism she received was justified, or whether it was unfair vitriol from an uninformed public, harnessed by a prejudiced and headline grabbing media.

Is This The End?: Burning American Democracy

by Charles Royals

This book was written in an attempt to answer the question “Is This the End Burning American Democracy?” Attack on American democracy makes it imperative to have an account of events facing society as we know it, and also leave record of our struggle. American people must never give up the American dream, or the path which one travels to reach goals set achieving their dream. Democracy in America is the pathway to freedom, equality, fairness, liberty and justice in every human’s pursuit of happiness. We all must question the ideals and action of a single individual, and do not become subordinate to government controlled by one. Democracy gives power to the people as government of the people, to be controlled by the people according to majority rule. We cannot forget from where we came, are get lost in where we are, but accept the challenge to achieve where we want to go.

REPARATION: A Spiritual Journey

by Maria Hall

This is the true story of one woman’s journey from the sweeping coastlines of New Zealand to the barren plains of Southern Spain, from youthful hope to deep despair, and from sin to reparation.

As a free-spirited university student, Maria’s life stretches before her like a wonderful adventure. It is New Zealand in the mid-seventies and Maria wants to make music, serve the Lord and spread her wings far beyond the safe familiarity of her homeland.

Then, the unthinkable happens: a callous act resulting in an impossible choice that shapes the rest of her life. Heartbroken and in need of a miracle, Maria seeks absolution as a Carmelite nun in the dark, silent cloisters of the Palmarian Catholic Church, one of the world’s most secretive and controversial religious orders.

The Scissor Sisters

by Larry Maravich

Drink, drugs, prostitution and a violent lover. Some of the ingredients that combined to bring about one of the most horrific crimes in Irish history. Add to it family disloyalty, fear, an abusive husband along with a liberal dose of poverty and the recipe is complete. In a case that became known as â??The Scissor Sisters’ Murder’, two daughters killed then dismembered their mother’s partner and threw his body parts into Dublin’s Royal Canal.
Ireland suffers from one of Europe’s lowest murder rates. Only the Netherlands and Austria have less homicide per 100000 of population. But even the most savage of contract killings would struggle to match the horror of the crime that took place in the rundown Richmond Cottages in, close to the centre of Dublin, on March 20th, 2005.
After their arrest, Charlotte and Linda Mulhall attended court wearing prominent make up and carrying harsh, uncompromising stares. That earned them the nickname â??The Scissor Sisters’ (mimicking the American pop stars) as they faced charges of murder and mutilation.

Soviet War Reporter: Short Stories from WW2 Eastern Front:

by Jim Suski

Soviet War Propaganda Newspaper Reporting – Insight into wartime agitprop.
Designed to raise morale on the home-front. Wartime psyops.
Don’t expect good literature or balanced reporting from “agitatsiya”, but it does give a feel of a society and people long gone

Small Earth
Small earth – that was the name given in the Soviet Union to tracts of land, sometimes even considerable areas that were liberated and controlled by partisan units behind the front lines.
The Soviet partisan movement was one of the most active in the whole of Europe. The activities of the forest soldiers were carried out on a huge scale and took on their own momentum. From the areas of the great plains of Bielorus and the Ukraine as well as the western parts of the Russian Federation by the summer of 1941 stronger groups entered action. They destroyed German checkpoints, attacked garrisons and the enemy lines of communication and simultaneously carried out political action among the local population. Eventually what started to appear were so called partisan countries – islands of freedom among an ocean of occupied territory.
With the units that defended and administered these tracts of land supported the Red Army. This support consisted of carrying out combined military activities, sometimes on a large scale as well as supplying, behind the front lines supplies of arms, ammunition, food, clothing and sometimes even people who were detailed to strengthen the ranks of the partisan groups.
With the battle for the small earth it was necessary to maintain regular communication and contact. This was however not easy. Radio communication, a route both simple and quick allowed for only the passing of reports, communications, or military orders. For the transport of equipment and people were restricted small light aircraft that could land on improvised landing fields or a march on foot through forest swamp and unpopulated areas. Despite the many dangers many decided on this route. They tore their way through the front, avoided enemy patrols and trekked their way to the partisan units in the forests. They moved mainly at night, by day they hid in the undergrowth to rest until nightfall and move on. Contact with the Germans or revealing their location in the occupied areas would mean a tragic end. This they knew and they had o avoid.
The wartime activities of the partisans had a significant effect on all the wartime activities but above all the most positive effect was on the morale of the population under enemy occupation. On the big earth they also were interested in the activities in the country of the partisans. The heroic actions of the forest units justified recording it by photo reporters. In such a situation at the end of August 1941 in the Krasnalja Zwiezda came the decision. The photoreporter Sergiej Loskutow would travel to the partisans.
He had to move fast. The summer was ending and the damp cool autumn was approaching. Autumn was not the best t time to travel in the forests. And he had to return before the first falls of snow and the earth would be gripped by frost that would force the partisans to leave their hiding places.
Hurried preparations. What to take with him? Not much, some food, his camera of course. A store of films. Maybe a notebook. Just enough to fit into a medium sized rucksack sewn from simple rough cloth. A military rucksack was out of the question, in the case of discovery there would be no way of explaining it. And a weapon? It is difficult to know what is best for such an expedition is it better to have one or go without? It could save his life but could also cause his downfall. Is it worth the risk? Maybe take a pistol and then throw it away after crossing the lines. Maybe he would get another one from the partisans. But do they have enough weapons? Probably not! For them each rifle, each pistol was a treasure. What about that weapon? A difficult decision.
