EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

The year is 2014. America is no longer the industrial or the military dynamo that it had previously been. Inside its own borders, minor disputes over national issues are accelerating beyond the comprehension and management of both the American public and among its political leaders. In the fog of distance, a phantom cargo ship drifts hauntingly alone on the Pacific Ocean. Its crew mysteriously murdered by someone... or something... thats too horrible to explain...too eerie to reveal its forbidden truth. Some six thousand miles away, covert activities and treasonous acts against the United States now send rippling consequences that will soon be felt throughout the entire world. America itself will not be left untouched, for it is this country that will now strain and struggle against itself as it attempts to elude the coming Armageddon that will inevitably test its willits spiritand even its founding principles, towards remaining the true leader of the free world. Yet, another era in history is quickly emerging. And with it a new nations leadership that truly believes that its time has come. Its iron-will belief system is so strong, that its success will ultimately come not from its own military might, but rather from an unraveling of the international stage towards a veiled co-existence. Against this background, a sinister plan for a nuclear holocaust has been conceived. Its chief architect is not a person of self-control, but rather a psychopathic madman intent on becoming the most powerful and feared individual of all time. His weapon of choice is neither guns nor direct threats, but rather the devils very own deception of coy innocence. Anarchy in America....Armageddons arrival.... Ascension of a Dark Horse nation the end of days....is about to begin.

EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

WOMAN OF CLAY is a timeless story about finding the courage to follow one's heart. It is for an adult readership and is approximately 60,000 words in length. Riona is a skilled potter who lives on the island of Slane. She fantasises about creating a clay figure of her own design, her own woman of clay. She longs to feel that she is valued and accepted by others on the island. She longs to feel safe, to have companionship and a sense of belonging. But Riona lives on an island where there are dark cloaks to wear, many rules and paths to follow, and endless shallow platters and hollow pots to throw from her wheel. The expectations and judgements of the other islanders govern Riona's life, just as the stones that border the many paths on Slane confine her direction. There is no place for a woman of clay. She is alone when she looks from her cave out to sea to the world beyond. She is alone when she sits on the cliffs and when she sees strange flickering lights at night and is scared. And she is alone when she witnesses a suicide. She alone can see Murtagh, the confronting and enigmatic hermit whom the others believe is dead. Is he a figment of her imagination or a tangible connection to those on the other side? Riona has always been told those on the mainland are evil. Her first visit there is both confronting and exciting she must reconcile what she has grown up believing and what she has now seen with her own eyes. Her meetings with the mysterious Anya and the circus performers are both confusing and potentially life-changing. Back on the island once more Riona finds her life just like her potter's wheel is spinning out of control. She realises she is a prisoner, cloaked and bound by the expectations of others. She must find the courage to reshape her woman of clay and with it, release her true self. She must be Riona, Woman of Clay.

EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

Mirrors of Clay: Reflections of Ancient Andean Life in Ceramics from the Sam Olden Collection features photographs and descriptions of sixty ceramic vessels from ancient Andean American cultures, including the Cupisnique, Chavín, Vicús, Nazca, Moche, Tiwanaku, Lambayeque, and Chimú, which flourished between 1200 BCE and 1550 CE. These distinctive ceramic vessels, selected from the collection of Sam Olden, were given to the Mississippi Museum of Art and are included in a special exhibition presented by the museum and Jackson State University. The pieces reveal each culture's stylistic aesthetics, religious ideologies, and political roles. The Pre-Columbian ceramic vessels presented in this catalogue are mainly from the Andean region of South America, which includes the modern countries of Ecuador, Peru, and Bolivia. By analyzing technologies, forms, and decorative designs, author Yumi Park reveals the unique aesthetics, social stratifications, religious ideologies, and political roles within each culture. Ancient Andean potters expressed their native individualities by depicting the forms of warriors, deities, architecture, flora, fauna, and daily life on their ceramic vessels. Collector Sam Olden lived in Peru during the 1960s. After visiting various archaeological sites and museums, including the Rafael Larco Herrera Museum in Peru, he became enamored with the ceramic vessels of the ancient Andes. Olden later settled in Yazoo City, Mississippi, and began to build an extensive collection of ancient Andean ceramics, eventually making a large donation to the Mississippi Museum of Art. Because of his passion for these artifacts, the people of Mississippi are now afforded a window on the ancient Andean world. The Sam Olden Collection gives us tangible and visible evidence of the social activities, political events, and ideological beliefs of ancient Andean cultures.

EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

'Sorry?' said Carrot. If it's just a thing, how can it commit murder? A sword is a thing' - he drew his own sword; it made an almost silken sound - 'and of course you can't blame a sword if someone thrust it at you, sir.' For Commander Vimes, Head of Ankh-Morpork City Watch, life consists of troubling times, linked together by...well, more troubling times. Right now, it’s the latter. There’s a werewolf with pre-lunar tension in the city, and a dwarf with attitude and a golem who’s begun to think for itself, but that’s just ordinary trouble. The real problem is more puzzling - people are being murdered, but there's no trace of anything alive having been at the crime scene. So Vimes not only has to find out whodunit, but howdunit too. He's not even sure what they dun. But soon as he knows what the questions are, he's going to want some answers.
