Beyond Revanche: The Death of La Belle Epoque
Nations go to war in a blare of trumpets and glory for high designs like Defence of the smaller nation, Democracy and Justice. Behind this rhetoric is the pain and anguish of slaughter, misery, starvation and death so that rich men grow richer. Beyond Revanche exposes the grotesque injustice of a world war within which small group of French policemen in the Deuxieme Bureau have to come to terms with the reality of destruction. Stretched to the limit they seek answers to the conundrum of who is actually controlling the war in France and beyond. The conspiracy they unearth threatens their very survival and that of France itself. Politics and injustice, sacrifice and conspiracy, violence and murder stalk the grand boulevards of Paris while the apparent ravings of a madman sheds a completely different light on events in the city and the politics of division. This fast-paced story will enthral both readers who have no knowledge of the exposure of the French capital to capitulation in the first weeks of the war and those who have some awareness of these shocking times. The sheer complicity of rich and powerful men who willed the evil to their own advantage beggars belief. The main thread of events are witnessed by a young detective struggling to find acceptance and an assassin who is groomed to commit the final ‘necessary’ crime before war was declared in 1914. The following four years become an eye-opener to a truth which has been long buried. Pre-order. Release date -- April 7, 2022

Colonel Crystal's Parallel Universe
A fictional probe of the American military Colonel Alva A. Crystal, U.S.A.F. (ret.), argues that ubiquitous overseas intervention by the U.S. military in the past few decades not only stifles American economic competitiveness and viability, but has done far more harm than good to both America's image and global stability. The result is that the United States is viewed worldwide as the most dangerous country and the leading obstacle to world peace. The troubled Col. Alva Crystal desperately heralds a return to the defense-only military mission that prevailed in the U. S. during its formative years. Such a return to what Colonel Crystal refers to and touts as a "Benevolent Military" would, he claims, effectively serve to address and repair much of what plainly has gone haywire with this country since 9/11.

by Mark Gaffney Although a work of fiction, Never Summer is based on real events. The novel breathes life into one of the most colorful episodes in Colorado history, the epic battle over Bowen Gulch. In this action-packed tale, a handful of gutsy activists take on the state's powerful logging industry to save one of the last great places. The young hero, Tom Lacey, just out of college, finds himself torn between the work he has grown to love and a dawning awareness of issues bigger than himself. The delicate intersection of real history and the imagination makes for a powerful coming-of-age story, embellished with an exquisite love affair and some hilarious hi-jinks. The events are set in the late 1980s, before cell phones and the consolidation of the US media, giving the story a nostalgic appeal. The novel spares no effort to accurately portray the state's ecology and the logging culture of the day, down to the smallest details, against a breathtaking natural backdrop.

An amalgamation of fact and legend that creates a portrait of rural Native American life in the 19th century First published in 1890, The Bridge of the Gods is a tale of the American Indians of the Northwest.
