Excerpt from Caucasian Legends Last year the Georgian people celebrated the one hundredth anniversary of the annexation Of its country to the dominion Of the Great White Tsar. These past one hundred years have been an era Of uninterrupted and prosperous development Of this nation of chivalry and heroism as well as loyalty and devotion to a great and good cause. In the third century A. D., the Georgians were converted to Christianity by Saint Nina. Ever Since they have been a mighty fortress of christen dom amidst wild and fanatic Mahometan tribes. Many a time their loyalty to their faith was sorely tried by the unparalleled cruelty of the Turks and Persians. Their capital was destroyed again and again, their churches ransacked and they commanded to tread upon the holy images which they venerated from childhood upwards. But even in such a terrible moment the Georgians showed themselves worthy of their all glorious traditions and thousands found their death in the River Koura at Tiflis, their chosen capital. For centuries this little nation of heroes battled with the Infidels and great was their distress, almost overcome by the gigantic forces Of savage enemies, when a protector appeared in the north and re-established law and order, confidence and happi ness. Seeing that it was essential to assure a permanent security, the ruler Of Georgia asked in the name of his people to be annexed to the Motherhood of Orthodox Nations.

The Book of Isaiah is very Rich with Metaphors and Similes, if you are in Love with them, or not; but, most Poor People are not: beCause the Metaphors are far too "Foggy" for them to Understand, which Means that they must Practice Reading all such Books, just to get a Good Understanding of them. At any rate, this Version of Isaiah is by far the Best in the World, and is Rated as "Extremely Good" by Well-Educated People. Therefore, it is a "must read" Book, if anyone is Interested in Actually Understanding the Bible. Most People are not; but, that is not a Problem: because most People were not Born to be Masters. Indeed, most were Born to be Good Servants of Good Masters, which is Good: because the Masters are like the Head of the Body of Good Government, which Body must have many other Working Parts and Organs, just to Function Correctly as a Body. Therefore, do not let the Hands Despise the Eyes: beCause, what could the Hands Do without Eyes to Guide them, even if the Eyes belong to some other Person, who can See what is Needed. We suggest that Readers of this Inspired Book take their Sweet Time, and read only a few Chapters each Day, and do not attempt to read the entire Book during one Day, even though it will be Tempting to Finish it, quickly, just to Discover those Precious Parts that make it so Famous and Controversial among Religious Scholars, some of whom are very Perplexed by it: because no one can Rightly Deny that God, himself, is Speaking through "Isaiah," who may have been Reincarnated! Indeed, there is the Possibility of it; but, do not let that "Buck you Out of the Saddle," as a Cowboy might say. Remember that this is a Companion Book of: "The New MAGNIFIED Version of The Book of MOORMUN!" (The Story of the White and Dark Indians in the Americas!), Book 040, which is perhaps the Best Modern Book in the whole World! Yes, unlike the Mutilated Bible, the Book of Mormon is much more Understandable, being "

For Steve Grey growing up, abuse and uncertainty was all he ever knew. Pulled out of a difficult family upbringing when he was only a child, Steve jumped from children's home to children's home, rarely ever escaping the after-effects of the trauma that defined much of his early years. Unfortunately, the type of suffering Grey endured doesn't just get to be wiped away, as Switch Back examines how his childhood abuse also manifested itself in his adult life in ways he could have never imagined. In a personal collection of memoirs, Grey recites the most pivotal moments of his challenging upbringing, focusing on the developments that occurred from childhood, and the reverberations that are still felt to this very day. Through musings and reflections, the heart-breaking story of Switch Back delves into some of the darkest times of Grey's life, yet the optimism in which these traumatic episodes are discussed makes for a truly inspirational tale of personal drive and discovery. With Switch Back, author Steve Grey dives deep into harrowing personal experiences, offering insight for those who may have suffered through similar episodes. While difficult to overcome at the time, Grey has since moved past the memories that haunted him in much of his developing life, with a new-found goal to use those same experiences to make sure abuse like this never happens again. With this novel, Grey offers a hand to anyone who has found themselves in a similar situation, primed with one key message in particular: you are not alone.

Kerry Sanderson's life is falling apart. He's crushing himself to fit into the boxes others have put him in: dutiful son, good boyfriend, real man. But even the small rebellions he's fought for himself-moving into a sketchy part of town and becoming an exotic dancer-aren't giving him the freedom he needs. Ewyn Garrity, a security guard at the gay club where Kerry dances, has found himself in protecting others. Everyone thinks he's straight, but Ewyn doesn't fit into simple boxes, either. When he meets Kerry, he makes a not completely innocent offer of company after work. Ewyn and Kerry hit it off, each finding something he desperately needs in the other. But when Kerry is forced to confront the pain and self-doubt that keep him crushed in his boxes, he's afraid that no one, not even Ewyn, will be able to love who he is when he finally, truly becomes Kerry.

Boundaries is a disturbing story about the blurred lines between love and betrayal, freedom and control, fantasy and treachery, good and evil, past and future. Diane Alders is a successful, workoholic sales executive in the medical field who has a void in her heart as a result of the tragic death of her husband seven years ago. Mickey Rollins is a genius and entrepreneur about to introduce a revolutionary new therapy that will 'repair' injured or impaired brains. Their sputtering romance hits full speed when Mickey invites Diane to accompany him on a lavish and bizarre vacation to the exotic South Seas intended to stretch their senses, fulfill wild dreams, and bring them closer together. Disaster strikes, and it is Diane who becomes Mickey's first human test subject. There's a catch…the healing process requires a surrogate, and Mickey chooses their mutual friend, lover and temptress—the beautiful Suki. The resurrection of Diane that transpires is not only a transfer of physical and cerebral attributes, but a blending of relationships, feelings, and emotions, drawing many into the fray, ending as shockingly as it begins.
