Life and death have been industrialized. The Forge, the birthplace of every soul, is a rumbling factory owned by the goddess Time, managed by Lucifer, and powered by the labor of demons and imps. In this dystopian world, a renegade interplanetary pilot running from his past doesn't stand a chance.
Handling Neptunian meth and dodging security cannons are all in a day’s work for Tristan Cross—not that he's one to complain. Working for the smuggling company StarCorp is an improvement over what he used to do for a living.
However, when StarCorp gives Tristan a one-way ticket into the brainwashed—and disturbingly suicidal—Loyal League, he decides to run from the company and start a new life in the only safe haven he knows: Earth. With the help of his brother, Tristan embarks on the most hazardous journey of his life, one that will place him at Time’s mercy. Little does he know the demons running the universe are craving a feast, and his own soul is the next item on the menu.

This is the love of a God who chose to give His life for ours, even carefully retaining His scars into the throne room of heaven and telling us in His very body, "I have gone to great lengths and great costs to say that I forsook all comforts for the love of you."
Join Jim in his exploration of life in God's unconditional, redeeming, amazing grace.

The Embodied glide through the busy streets of New York, uttering barely a sound.
Their eerie beauty comes from their perfect symmetry. Male, female, old, young... their faces are always absolutely symmetrical. Are they flawless humans, the epitome of evolution? Are they a genetically modified super-race? Are they extra-terrestrials? Once prep school student Kari Marriner becomes aware of their existence, she is driven to find the answer and finds herself ensnared in a web that reaches further than she could possibly have imagined.
Kari's earliest memory is her father's death in a car crash back in small-town Wisconsin. Now, 12 years later, her mother has been hired by a pseudo-religious organization in Manhattan called the Temple of Truth (a.k.a. the ToT). At Chelsea Prep, Kari develops a crush on classmate Cruz. But when she realizes that Noon, another attractive guy at school, is involved with the ToT, her curiosity gets the better of her.
Kari stumbles upon a secret tunnel leading from her apartment to another in the building, where an ancient book holds images she can scarcely believe, and a cavernous room contains... something inexplicable. As Kari pieces together the incredible evidence, she discovers that the ToT is run by other-worldly beings called The Embodied who influence human behavior and have established a global long-term human breeding program. But why? And what is her role in all this?
Just as she starts wondering whether the love she feels for Cruz is genuine or if her emotions are being controlled by The Embodied, her mother is kidnapped and Kari has to figure out who is human, who is Embodied, and who she can count on to help rescue her mother.

Anton is turning 16 this summer of 1952, but his mother's plans are getting in the way of his dreams. For a start, she's sold the Packard to set up a ballet school, the Packard he was planning on learning to drive. And now she's bought a piano and expects him to accompany her classes. But after Anton falls for the girl upstairs and then rescues his neighbour, a WWI flying ace, from a tumble, life seems suddenly rich with possibilities. That Jasmine is years older and worlds away in sophistication, and his war hero is a grumpy old man in a wheelchair being held a virtual prisoner by his daughter, are details Anton at first refuses to dwell on. But when the old man gives him a bicycle, Anton returns the favour by planning a fantastical escape to Salt Spring Island.

Anton's tale is interwoven with his mother's, whose story begins in 1935 when she is fourteen and filled with dreams of dancing like Isadora Duncan. Grotesquely mistreated by her alcoholic mother, Yvonne finds fleeting freedom with a Russian-born dancer but then falls prey to manipulative impresario Harold Crouch. When mother and son escape to Canada, Harold tracks them down. But then his cruelty goes too far and Yvonne finally pushes back. In one reckless moment she takes the liberating step that makes the present possible. Tent of Blue is a story of captivity and escape, of discovering the strength to fight back against the world and seize freedom.

When Mother Russia called, Lilia Litvyak traded her childhood for a YAK-1 fighter and shredded Hitler's vaunted all-male Luftwaffe on her way to becoming the world's first female ace.
With her country under siege, Lilia Litvyak transformed herself in just a few years from a child chasing fireflies to an aerial demon tormenting Hitler's Luftwaffe. In the process, she not only became the world's first female ace, Litvyak rose in a male-dominated society to become one of Russia's greatest World War II heroes. Litvyak's incredibly and largely untold story is set as historical fiction against the background of a devastating war that claimed the lives of as many as 30 million Soviet soldiers and citizens.
Yet the story of her transformation from child to Hero of the Soviet Union is more than fascinating. It serves as an important reminder of the unprecedented sacrifices the Soviets made during the Second World War against a common enemy--sacrifices that are increasingly and dangerously fading from the collective memory of Russians and Americans alike.
Equally disturbing is that until now Lilia's story--her childhood, life, loves, sacrifices and death in aerial combat over the Ukraine--have only been shared in bits and pieces. Call Sign, White Lily helps to correct this. It also tells the story of how an American with no Russian ancestry came to know Litvyak, visit her gravesite and monument in a tiny section of the Eastern Ukraine, speak to those that knew her and dig through long-buried records on her life and death.
Call Sign, While Lily brings Lilia Litvyak back to life--and in the process reminds both Russians and Americans of the importance and positive impact these great peoples can have by working together.

At high noon on a cold November day in 1974, sixty-seven-year-old John Wayne faced off with the staff of the Harvard Lampoon on the famous campus in Cambridge, Massachusetts. The students had issued their challenge by calling the beloved American icon a fraud. Wayne, who had his new movie McQ to promote, responded by saying he would be happy to show his film in the pseudo-intellectual swamps of Harvard Square. After the screening, without writers, the former USC footballer delivered a classic performance. When one smart young man asked where he got his phony toupee, Wayne insisted the hair was real. It wasn't his, but it was real. The appreciative underclassmen loved him and after the Q and A session, they all sat down to dinner. Later Wayne, who was suffering greatly from both gout and the after effects of lung cancer (sadly the Duke only had five years to live), said that day at Harvard was the best time he ever had.
