The Phoenix Mission (The Phoenix Series Book 1)

by L. Sydney Fisher

The Critics say…“You won’t forget this book!”

From the #1 Amazon Bestselling Author comes a story inspired by the U.S. Army’s psychic spy program, Stargate.

For two decades, the Army trained special agents in remote viewing, a form of clairvoyance.  With Russia at the forefront of paranormal research, the United States government wasn’t about to be left behind and funneled more than twenty million dollars into the top secret program.

Hidden among the landscape of Fort Meade and inside the walls of a wooden structure, the remote viewing labs trained soldiers to be psychic spies under a cloak of secrecy and a signed oath.  If the oath was broken, the soldier could face up to $10,000 in fines and a possible prison sentence. But in 1995 during the Clinton Administration, Stargate was shut down. Now twenty years later, a new story emerges. 

Meet Sergeant Major Seth Phoenix. He’s spent his entire life guarding a secret, but when a terrorist attack at Fort Bragg threatens the lives of himself and two of his closest friends, he risks it all and uses his supernatural powers of telekinesis. 

When General Monroe witnesses the event, he has Phoenix transported to Fort Meade where the sergeant major is introduced to the clandestine Stargate Program. But a mole leaks Phoenix’s identity to Russia, and Seth must find the spy and stop one of the biggest Al Qaeda attacks in history.

Sergeant Major Seth Phoenix is a fictional character, but the locations and scientific research in the story are real and designed to give an authentic view of what the original remote viewers may have experienced during the program’s peak time in operation.  Once you enter Phoenix’s world, it’ll be hard to tell the difference between what is fact and what is fiction!

  • Note from the author:  Seth Phoenix and his rank as a sergeant major is not meant to represent the personality or character of any real life military personnel. The research for The Phoenix Series involved more than two years of interviews with military personnel, consultations, travel time, and hands-on demonstrations with tactical gear and artillery.  It is my hope that you enjoy The Phoenix Series as much as I enjoyed the research.  Although I consider this series to be one of my most challenging projects, it was also an unforgettable experience and a fascinating subject.  This series is dedicated to the United States Military and all national and local law enforcement agencies protecting our homeland.

Just remember, in the end and by direct orders of the CIA, this never happened…

In 1939 Stalin’s government signed a non-aggression pact with Nazi Germany. Germany ended the pact by invading the Soviet Union in 1941.

    The Democracy Development Machine: Neoliberalism, Radical Pessimism, and Authoritarian Populism in Mayan Guatemala

    by Nicholas Copeland

    Nicholas Copeland sheds new light on rural politics in Guatemala and across neoliberal and post-conflict settings in The Democracy Development Machine. This historical ethnography examines how governmentalized spaces of democracy and development fell short, enabling and disfiguring an ethnic Mayan resurgence.

    In a passionate and politically engaged book, Copeland argues that the transition to democracy in Guatemalan Mayan communities has led to a troubling paradox. He finds that while liberal democracy is celebrated in most of the world as the ideal, it can subvert political desires and channel them into illiberal spaces. As a result, Copeland explores alternative ways of imagining liberal democracy and economic and social amelioration in a traumatized and highly unequal society as it strives to transition from war and authoritarian rule to open elections and free-market democracy.

    The Democracy Development Machine follows Guatemala’s transition, reflects on Mayan involvement in politics during and after the conflict, and provides novel ways to link democratic development with economic and political development.



    Obras Completas de Platón (Spanish Edition)

    by Plato

    Platón â??(en griego antiguo: ΠλάÏ?Ï?ν, Plátōn; Atenasâ?? o Egina,â?? c. 427-347 a. C.)â?? fue un filósofo griego seguidor de Sócrates y maestro de Aristóteles. En 387 fundó la Academia,â?? institución que continuaría su marcha a lo largo de más de novecientos años y a la que Aristóteles acudiría desde Estagira a estudiar filosofía alrededor del 367, compartiendo, de este modo, unos veinte años de amistad y trabajo con su maestro. â?? Platón participó activamente en la enseñanza de la Academia y escribió, siempre en forma de diálogo, sobre los más diversos temas, tales como filosofía política, ética, psicología, antropología filosófica, epistemología, gnoseología, metafísica, cosmogonía, cosmología, filosofía del lenguaje y filosofía de la educación; intentó también plasmar en un Estado real su original teoría política, razón por la cual viajó dos veces a Siracusa, Sicilia, con intenciones de poner en práctica allí su proyecto, pero fracasó en ambas ocasiones y logró escapar penosamente y corriendo peligro su vida debido a las persecuciones que sufrió por parte de sus opositores.

    Su influencia como autor y sistematizador ha sido incalculable en toda la historia de la filosofía, de la que se ha dicho con frecuencia que alcanzó identidad como disciplina gracias a sus trabajos. Alfred North Whitehead llegó a comentar:

    La caracterización general más segura de la tradición filosófica europea es que consiste en una serie de notas a pie de página de Platón.

    Alfred North Whitehead (1929)
