Dressing like B-movie monsters is the latest fad sweeping through Bixby Elementary—but what’s driving the strange compulsion? That’s just what the Zero Avenue kids want to know. Join Drew, Clementine, Grady, Newton, and Spider, as they unravel the threads of a conspiracy that blurs the line between science and magic, between friends and enemies, and draws them into an adventure that tests their character, and their loyalties to each other.
Driven by a unique plot and a compelling new mythology, CRYPTO-PUNK takes readers on a one-of–kind adventure that explores the durability of friendship in the face of the terrifying unknown.
Thormod Morrisson is a runester and tresmiðr (woodcarver) of Norse Scottish extraction with a long interest in Norse, Pictish, Gaelic and Far Eastern traditions. He established Thor’s Hammer Woodcraft, based in Scotland and produces traditionally made runes and various other heiðinn carvings.
The Viking Runes is a study of the ancient Norse fuþark script used in everyday inscriptions, carved memorials and divination. It covers the Elder fuþark as well as the Víking fuþark of the Norðreyjar (Shetland and Orkney), the Suðreyjar (the Hebrides), Norse Scotland and the wider Víking world.
With references to Norse and Celtic history, myth and saga, the Norse Gaelic tradition and warrior mysteries, this book covers the origins of the runic fuþark, inscriptions and secret codes, how to carve the runes, how to read them, the Norse gods and beings of the elder world, the practices of shape-changing, galdrar (magical song), spá (prophecy) and seiðr (trance magic), animal cults and the down to earth lore found in Old Norse verse. This book should be useful for anyone seeking to expand their knowledge of the runes and more.

About The Genie’s Gift, Chris says: My first memories come from living in Saudi Arabia as a child. Though my family lived in an American camp, we got to visit local cities and explore the desert. We spent six years there, moving back to the United States in time for me to enter sixth grade. My parents returned to Saudi Arabia when I was in college, and I spent a month there one winter. We also visited Egypt and Bahrain, and I later traveled to Turkey with a friend.
The Middle East today is very different from the culture shown in this novel. Still, reminders of those days exist in the buildings, artwork, and food. And of course in the stories. I drew heavily on One Thousand and One Nights, often known as The Arabian Nights, for the mythology in The Genie’s Gift. The stories in One Thousand and One Nights came from Indian, Persian, Arabic, and other sources. They were collected over hundreds of years, beginning in the eighth century. They were not originally seen as children’s stories, though later translations targeted kids.
As in The Arabian Nights, The Genie’s Gift is a series of interlocking stories that make up a whole.
The Genie’s Gift is a lighthearted action novel set in the fifteenth-century Middle East, drawing on the mythology of The Arabian Nights.
Thirteen-year-old Anise, shy and timid, dreads marrying the man her father chooses for her. Her aunt tells her about the Genie Shakayak, the giver of the Gift of Sweet Speech. He lives high atop Mount Quaf, many weeks’ journey across a barren desert. The way is barred by a dozen dangers and trials. But those few who cross the desert and defeat the guardians of the mountain receive their reward. From that day forward, their words drip like honey from their lips, charming all who hear them, and no one can deny them anything they ask.
Anise is determined to find the genie and ask for the gift, so she can control her own future. But the way is barred by a series of challenges, both ordinary and magical. How will Anise get past a vicious she-ghoul, a sorceress who turns people to stone, and mysterious sea monsters, when she can’t even speak in front of strangers? Will she ever reach the top of Mount Quaf—and if she does, can she convince the Genie to give her the gift?

The tower is an incredibly mammoth undertaking involving a remarkable
coalition of private investors and governments. Part space elevator,
part launching pad, the tower is placed on top of Mount Everest for
several reasons: the mountain is one of the tallest peaks in the
world, providing a 29,000 foot platform from which to work. It is the
most famous peak in the world, making it a strategic marketing tool
for attracting both investors and customers. Cities are actually
built within the mountain to help finance the project. As the story
unfolds, the unscrupulous nature of some men is quickly revealed,
coupled with a blatant disregard for a global treasure. Amazing feats
of technology are accomplished which boggle both the mind and
imagination. Loyalties come and go, the end justifies the means, and
the law of unintended consequences always seems to have the final say.
S.J. Munson has been a pastor, writer and teacher for the past two decades. He received a B.A. in English from Princeton, along with a prize for fiction. The author of numerous Christian dramas, his call to fulltime ministry came while he was working as a screenwriter in Hollywood. He went on to receive an M.Div. from Princeton Theological Seminary, with a concentration in New Testament Greek.
“I love history and this story gave me an opportunity to weave history, faith and mystery into one story,” Munson said. “Anyone who is interested in fiction, art or ancient history will love this book.”
"There’s a lot of fiction or non-fiction out there that deals in some way with the temple treasure, the rebuilding of the temple, end-time prophecy and the State of Israel. I wanted to write a detective novel that challenges the reader both intellectually and emotionally to reexamine some dearly held assumptions in the light of history.
"The Romans looted the Jerusalem temple in AD 70, and I always wondered what became of those treasures. The Romans were such careful historians, whatever happened, there had to be a paper trail. As it turns out, the story is quite an epic. For five hundred years, the treasures survived fire, barbarian invasions and war, traveling from Jerusalem, to Rome, Carthage, Constantinople, and back to Jerusalem. Then, oddly, in the mid-sixth century, the trail goes cold. What happened after that is, of course, a source of much speculation, and that’s where fiction and imagination take over. The protagonist in my book gets caught up in the search but ends up finding something infinitely more valuable."

What ever happened to the treasures of the Jerusalem temple looted by the Romans in AD 70? Their fate is shrouded in mystery ...
Former art historian Michael Grammaticus, Jr. has inherited an ancient and dangerous secret-and it seems he is the last to know! When his parents are killed under suspicious circumstances, he travels to Rome to investigate, and the clues lead him to a fascinating world of ancient art, medieval manuscripts, and a dangerous mix of religion and international politics. Descended from an endless line of Greek scholars, he can't resist being drawn into their cryptic world, and soon the same relentless forces that destroyed his father begin to hound Michael as well. He discovers not only that his father had been an outspoken advocate for Palestinian Christians, but also that one of his ancestors was the bearer of a secret that continues to haunt his family-- a riddle regarding the whereabouts of the coveted treasure of King Herod's temple. This journey of discovery also becomes one of faith, as the cynical and disillusioned Michael undergoes a harrowing tribulation that leads him not only to the reasons for his father's death, but also to something far greater than the temple treasure itself. A delightful romp for lovers of fiction, art and ancient history-- and for anyone who ever wondered what really happened to that treasure!
"For a huge puzzle, I found not a puzzle-piece out of place. As the treasure-search genre of books expands, this quality is important. It also is an obvious treasure piece never before dealt with. This one hangs together. Needless to say, I recommend it without reservation." --Rev. Hank Keating, President, Keating Christian Ministries, Inc.
"Not since the early works of Morris West has a novel more accurately described the interplay of tensions between the religious world and Western society." --Christian Newswire
"What the avid reader of historical novels always needs is a well-researched, well-written novel that gives us a sense of having walked with the author into an enchanted land of his making. This, happily, is what S. J. Munson's novel does. It is not an ordinary historical novel, but one of depth and learning and style." --Ralph Stewart Smith, author

Vladimir Putin has a simple goal: raise the price of oil by launching attacks in five maritime chokepoints. He knows his regime will collapse should oil prices remain low.
Within the elaborate game of geopolitical strategy, ISIS caliphate, terrorist provocations, and global markets, Putin launches guerrilla warfare under the sea with the use of Seaborne Spetsnaz and submarines. He knows his plan will only work if the attacks are perpetrated by Islamic extremist. A war in which Putin has the ultimate advantage of stealth and surprise.
I have been a zompoc fan since my mom first allowed me to watch Romero's Dawn of the Dead when I was twelve. Thanks Mom! I am also enamored with the Walking Dead series on AMC. While I was writing the novel Trudge: Surviving the Zombie Apocalypse I really felt as if I were a fly on the wall watching it all unfold. My first novel came to me easier than I imagined. Many places in the novel are real and I have been there. Please enjoy the first installment in the Trudge series.

He must leave Portland, Oregon, to locate his family in South, Carolina. Fifteen months after an honorable discharge the disillusioned former Tier-1 operator travels east with his less than clean-cut neighbor and two neighbor kids.
Meanwhile, his wife Brook is forced to flee the famillial home with daughter Raven in tow.
Humans bent on taking advantage of other humans are as much a threat as the newly risen walking corpses.
Incommunicado and desperate for any information about the outbreaks spread, Cade must chart the right course on his trudge to reunite with his family.
Paul Murphy is a retired educator. The father of three grown children he recently moved to Southport with his wife, Shirley.
He graduated from The Ohio State University in 1966 with a Bachelor of Science Degree. He then obtained his Masters in Education from Bowling Green State University in 1970.
Paul possesses more than thirty years experience in public education as a teacher, assistant principal, and principal, culminating with sixteen years as superintendent of schools in several communities.
After he retired, Paul’s first task was to write the Christian fiction novel, The 13th Apostle, published by Evergreen Press. He is also the author of two murder mysteries, Time in the Mirror and Golden Rule Days.
He is a twenty-five year member of Rotary International. Paul has served in various capacities in two Lutheran churches. His love of Jesus prompted his writing The 13th Apostle and its sequel, Angel Assignment: The White House.
An accidental stumble by a Secret Service agent leaves the country’s leaders exposed for a split second. A shot rings out: an instant later, the Vice President of the United States is dead, and the First Lady is mysteriously wounded. While a shaken President sits beside his injured wife considering resignation, the fiend behind the assassination attempt ramps up a smear campaign calculated to initiate impeachment, and orders his henchmen to scare off—kill, if necessary—a troublesome reporter determined to report only the facts. Still not satisfied, the evil-doer funds Al-Qaeda in a conspiracy to bring both America and its President to their knees. The terrorist attacks are executed with near-perfect precision: as an airplane spews a deadly new strain of anthrax over a crowd of over 100,000 unsuspecting football fans, Al-Qaeda members gun down random individuals at other nationally recognized gridiron venues.
The enemy’s scheme is working: the President trusts no one except family and Secret Service agents. As rumors and death swirl about the nation’s leader, the pressure to apprehend the perpetrators of these heinous crimes and name a new vice-president becomes almost unbearable. Prayer brings the President little comfort, for his faith has waned over the years, and he no longer believes in his religious heritage. As he flies off to a secret retreat, the President recalls his father’s and grandfather’s tales of “the thirteenth apostle” and the letters Gamaliel supposedly wrote, and rejects them once again as make-believe. But God has a revelation in store for him, and what he learns will be instrumental in his fight against his evil adversary.
“Paul Murphy is a wonderful story teller. His work in Angel Assignment: The White House grabs you and keeps you until the very end. This is not just a page turner…it’s a page burner. Start it today and you are likely to be up all night and you will be glad for the experience.” Dr. Mark Cress, Founder, Corporate Chaplains of America, Inc.
Finally, a suspense thriller the whole family can enjoy and talk about. A book for all ages, Angel Assignment: The White House, is a modern day novel featuring the president as the good guy, and a bunch of bad guys to fill out the roster. A good story to talk about with family and students. A great, what if. Susan Warren Books 'n Stuff
Castel is an elf stranded in human lands, slowly dying from lack of magical energy. Mendry is a human assassin descended from a line of vampire 'Dragon Knights' who seek to bring an evil dragon back to life.
When Mendry's father steals a child he believes to be his grand-daughter, the seventh generation needed to carry out the resurrection ritual, Mendry and Castel come together to save an innocent life, facing evil mages and more. Together with the child's uncle and mother, they make an unlikely band of heroes, and find a whole new meaning to the word family.
"Castel’s and Mendry’s relationship is as intriguing as the journeys they must take to protect the innocent. Emily Veinglory pens a fascinating fantasy tale which spins its web as tightly as if it were a realistic contemporary piece. Once again, her gift for characterization is apparent, with deeply-realised characters to whom the reader is immediately drawn." [TwoLips Reviews]

It hasn’t been long since Fennel, a Sightless Groundling, and Peree, her Lofty Keeper, fell in love and learned the truth: the Scourge, and their world, is not what it seems.
Fenn and Peree are determined to guide their people to the protected village of Koolkuna, but first they must convince them that everything they believe is a lie. An impossible task, especially when someone seems hell-bent to try anything—even animal sacrifice and arson—to destroy the couple’s new bond and crush the frail truce between the Groundlings and the Lofties. Not everyone wants to uproot their lives in the forest, and those who stay behind will be left terribly vulnerable.
Fenn and Peree’s resolve to be together despite their people’s disapproval, and the constant threat of the Scourge’s return, pushes both groups to the breaking point. Unable to tell friend from foe, Fenn must again decide how much she’s willing to sacrifice to ensure the people of the forest’s future.
Only this time, the price of peace may be too high to bear.
Praise for THE DEFIANCE (Brilliant Darkness #2):

Finding a dead body changes a person.
22-year-old Audra Needham is back in her small New Mexico hometown. She just wants to fit in, work hard, and help her younger brother. Going for a walk in the woods with her former crush, Jay, seems like a harmless distraction.
Until they stumble on a body.
Jay, who has secrets of his own to protect, insists they walk away and keep quiet. But Audra can't simply forget what she's seen. The woman deserves to be found, and her story deserves to be told.
More than one person isn't happy about Audra bringing a crime to life. The dead woman was murdered, and Audra could be next on the vengeful killer's list. She’ll have to stand up for herself in order to stand up for the murder victim. It’s a risk, and so is reaching out to the mysterious young man who works with deadly birds of prey. With her 12-year-old brother determined to play detective, and romance budding in the last place she expected, Audra learns that some risks are worth taking – no matter the danger, to her body or her heart.
“Another action-packed suspense novel by Kris Bock, perhaps her best to-date. The author weaves an intriguing tale with appealing characters. Watching Audra, the main character, evolve into an emotionally-mature and independent young woman is gratifying.” Ellen Rippel

This book explains how to correctly use your body to obtain tone (strength with flexibility), self-carriage (stability and lift) and movement (vertically bilateral in rhythm) both on and off the horse. Zen & Horseback Riding is about using horseback riding as a means of self-development and training. It is about improving both your riding and your life.

Janae Weinhold grew up on a farm in the Midwest, surrounded by her father's predatory friends. She learned early on about con artists and sociopaths, as they were everywhere. Even her father. At the time, it all seemed "normal." Only later did she see recognize that they run the world.
It took her many years of being targeted by con artists before she recognized how they trapped people into doing things. Not only were these predators able to persuade people to do things that were self-defeating, but also things they didn't believe in.
Rather than being a victim, Janae decided to "get smart." Her Con Job series of books are the outcome of her journey to break free of con artists, sociopaths and predators. She shares many of her experiences in this series of books.
Janae had a doctorate in Planetary Psychology, is a former university professor and a licensed professional counselor. She has also lived and worked out of the country for extended periods of time, and credits these “outside the box” experiences with helping her develop a global and systemic perspective in her professional work.
She has co-authored four print books on relationships and conflict resolution with her husband, Barry, that grew out their “relationship laboratory.” They live in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Western North Carolina.

It was written for nice people who get ripped off.
It shows you how to break free of con artists, sociopaths and other kinds of “life-takers” who see your “life-giving” as a weakness and you as an ideal “mark.”

This ruthless Warrior for Truth and Seeker of the Shadow talks about her journey to know what is real and what is illusion. Eventually she decided to “get smart” rather than be a victim. This helped free her from the tangled web of family secrets and lies that she grew up with.

Helen Wilson was born in 1959 to Irish and Scottish parents. Since taking degrees at the universities of Hull and Manchester, she has been a lecturer in Further Education, but only began to write seriously after attending a course at the Hen House in Lincolnshire, and completing an M.A. at Manchester Metropolitan University’s Writing School. Her work has recently been broadcast on local radio and has appeared in a variety of magazines and anthologies including Reactions 2, Muse 3, and Lancashire Life. She lives in the Ribble Valley with her husband and son.
Intense, tender, and fiercely-felt, the poems in Thoth confront the tensions between past and present. This is territory that Helen Wilson has made her own: a domestic world threaded through with history and myth.
Presided over by the ibis-headed Egyptian god of scribes, who records whether the dead are “ true of voice ”, these are poems which explore the magical properties of words, and the power of stories. Here a mother talks to her son, nuns, queens, crones and concubines speak to us across time; and women invariably have the last word.
Helen Wilson is a writer with compelling tales to tell.
Simon Armitage on “ Mother Love ”:
This is terrific stuff. The poem has a brilliant sense of certainty with the undepleted sureness of the female perspective, the alternative reading of what is otherwise a blood and guts boys’-own story. Excellent.

After interviewing C-5 crew members that have gone to the “ice,” and from David Joseph’s own trips to the “ice,” he delivers a classic aviation short story.
A certain fear of losing the plane came to him. The shivering returned. He could not help thinking of a ship sinking, he thought, and the captain going down with the ship. But a plane sinking and a C-5!
