Unicorn Blues by R. L. Michalak - Fantasy as foretold in the Legend’s End, it is said that in the most painful turns, unicorns will once again roam the lands. Galloping in flames before the great divergence, they light a path beyond legends where all things are new.

Hail and well met! Well met indeed, for it has been some thirty revolutions since the playing out of the last of the last legends, and only now are you hearing from me in this history of those times. My apologies for the delay and this hasty note. I found many reasons over the last revs to avoid reliving those turns and even now, only the press of events has forced me to send this manuscript out before it is truly ready, but so be it. I must let it go. I trust that these words have reached your hands with the message that it is not too late for it is my charge to continue the chronicles known in the libraries of the old as The Tome of Hope, though not even the wise foresaw the need of this continuance. Surely, they presumed, the turning would occur before the legends failed. The hope would be realized, and thus the Tome needed no more. You need only listen to your heart to know such was not the case. But I get ahead of myself for such makes up the history contained in Unicorn Blues.

This text is woven with the magic of unicorn stories, and thus the fact that these words are before your eyes, announces that you are at the first gate of magic and the unicorn fields of old are before you.

In Search of Health & Happiness by Gandi R. Rajender, Ph.D.--Health and Happiness—these two states are deeply and universally desired by all of humankind, and yet for so many people, they are elusive and transitory. In this book, the author outlines a detailed system for reaching Health and happiness through bodily, mental and spiritual care. After undergoing heart by-pass surgery for blocked arteries, he set out on a quest to improve his own health, and realized that while there is some helpful written information on the subject, much of it is confusing, contradictory and incomplete. There is also an over-emphasis in our culture on appearance, rather than underlying well-being.

After careful research and personal experience of various methods, Dr. Rajender has developed a complete program for achieving Health and Happiness. His book covers an entire lifetime of study and experience, and provides a wealth of information about all the elements of a healthful and happy lifestyle for body, mind and spirit. Topics including nutrition, vitamins, exercise and relaxation are discussed in straightforward terms. Moreover, every activity recommended in the book is easy for the reader to put into practice in his or her daily life.

In addition, various religious and philosophical approaches to happiness are treated in a fascinating and enlightening manner, while the chapter on “Conscious Living” expresses the author's belief that fulfillment in life can only be attained while living in the present moment, intensely, with total awareness and concentration. Conscious Living, if practiced consistently, will help people to be more creative, efficient, and productive, and will increase the intensity of their senses, improve their memory, communication and decision-making skills, and lead them closer to their natural goals of Health and Happiness. The book enables the individual to use the full measure of his or her capacities and potentials in the pursuit of increasing levels of happiness.

Carry Me Back--A Family and National History of Slavery and Freedom-- Intelligent and aware people all over the world know about the shameful history of slavery in this country, but few of them may also be aware of the African-Americans who came to the USA as free men and women, and remained free throughout their family's history. In a sensitive and powerful memoir, Susie Nickens Ludlow traces the saga of her multiracial family, which includes ancestry that is black, white, and Native American, back to its origins in slavery and its origins in freedom.

The author illuminates a little-known aspect of black American life, and shares the rich, warm and vivid recollections of her own family, and their experiences, as well as of moments in history, such as the March on Washington and Dr. King’s “I have a dream” speech. She shares with us times of triumph and achievement, both for her family and black Americans, as well as those times when they suffered from prejudice and discrimination.

Without bitterness, she explores and analyzes colorism among both whites and blacks, as it exists in this country, and traces the path by which she came to reject color bias, and to realize her true identity as a woman of multi-ethnic background, as an American, and as a human being whose strength and hope spring from ancestors who came to this country in chains, ancestors who came of their own free will, and ancestors who occupied this land for thousands of years.

Politics, Population, Prison, Plantations by M. Avery Johnson--With enough education and encouragement to skip his junior year of high school, M. Avery Johnson graduated a year ahead of his class with the hope of getting started on a bright future. Months later you could consider it as luck to have such a young African American male working in the White House and surrounding executive buildings. His work location was honorable, but his position showed no room for advancement. So, continuing his education part-time was his next step up in life. But...none of this seemed to be good enough when stuck in a sick system of senseless and shameless power that sentenced him to seventeen years and seven months in prison.

With a mix of education, common sense, rational thinking, and tough love, M. Avery Johnson uses facts and feelings to expose and express the people, power, pressure, and problems between Politics vs. Population vs. Prisons vs. Plantations.

There is a God in You by Parag and Diane Karkhanis--In these troubled times, people seek answers to the great questions of life in many places--in nature, in traditional religions and philosophies, even in the vast reaches of outer space with the hope that a superior alien race will come to enlighten us. There is a God in You opens up another, limitless vista for enlightenment: one's own soul. Parag writes that in India, the word Namaste is a common way for people to greet each other. In English, it translates, "I salute the God in you." In the words of the authors, "God is always with you, because God is everywhere." Through the Steps of Evolvement, Parag and Diane move from Restlessness, the desire to find answers; to Recognition of the energy which vibrates throughout the Universe; seeing Order in the randomness of the world; Taking Pleasure in Life, and finally, Creating Consciously to lead a rich, fulfilling spiritual existence. 128 pages, 5 1/2" x 8 1/2", Quality Paperback, ISBN: 0-96668743-0-7, $11.95 (US), $17.75 (CAN).

Labial Instability in Sound Change by Richard Edward McDorman, Jr.--The renowned historical linguist Hans Henrich Hock once commented that, for reasons that are not well understood, there sometimes appear “curious gaps” in the bilabial slot of languages' series of obstruents. Hock based his comment on the observation that if a language lacks a voiceless stop at one of the cardinal points of articulation, the missing segment is almost always /p/. Labial Instability in Sound Change explains the driving force behind this phenomenon. In this elegantly crafted solution to the longstanding problem of “labial instability,” linguist Richard Edward McDorman, Jr. clarifies the complex relationships among speech perception, acoustic and articulatory phonetics, language typology, and sound change. 60 pages, 5 1/2" x 8 1/2", Quality Paperback, ISBN: 0-9672537-0-5, $12.95 (US)

Impeachment Trial Diary by Wil F. Huston--Impeaching the President for lying about sex seemed so bizarre, so shockingly wrong-headed to this author (a retired professor of political sociology) that when the trial began he reset his wakeup alarm: got up before dawn each day in time to record events in the trial in the Senate and note how they seemed to be impacting public opinion, the jury-behind-the-jury of people not unlike himself. Would the poll numbers decline? Would the home folks finally "get it" that what Clinton did with Monica called for the political equivalent of capital punishment? Or would they "get it" that the campaign against him was in bad faith: an effort by religious extremists and others on the far right, on grounds that were both frivolous and contrived, to finally and at long last, "Get Clinton?" Was what Michael Lind has called "the southernization of American politics" a factor? Issues of race and sex, gays, women outside the home ("family values"), resentment of the protest movements of the '60s and '70s and the counterculture that grew out of it?
