The Blackbird. Some said it was a living legend; others, a myth. To Captain Jason Kent and his love Deany Summers, it was their only hope. When their homeland of California, one of five city-states established after the Great War, is threatened by General Salvador Drone, ruler of the savage Empire of Dodum, Jason, Deany, and five fellow soldiers set off on a mission to meet that memory of the misty past promising release to their war-weary civilization. If they succeed, they will restore peace to their home. But if they fail, then they and all that they love will be enslaved under Drone's vicious tyranny. Jason and his platoon know the dangers that await them. Yet their greatest enemy lurks among them; for when their plans unravel, they do as well, until they begin to doubt their mission, their way, and their commander. Struggling to keep the quest alive, Jason pushes forward, knowing that he must find the answer to their prayers, the mystery behind the legend, the power of the past-the Blackbird.

To succeed, the real Jason Bourne must maneuver through the dangerous labyrinth of international espionage—an exotic world filled with CIA plots, turncoat agents, and ever-shifting alliances—all the while hoping to find the truth behind his haunted memories and the answers to his own fragmented past. This time there are two Bournes—and one must die. THE BOURNE ULTIMATUM “Vintage Ludlum.”—The Plain Dealer At a small-town carnival, two men, each mysteriously summoned by a telegram signed “Jason Bourne,” witness a bizarre killing.

His plan is simple: Use himself as bait to lure Carlos into a deadly trap—from which only one of them will escape.

Fifteen-year-old Jason Hewes is a fairly ordinary kid, with fairly ordinary problems. He’s more interested in dinosaurs and fantasy role-playing games than sports, making him a target for local bullies, and his dating successes are best described as sporadic. He’s just another kid struggling to get through life in a small rural town in Montana. Nothing exciting or exceptional ever happens to him. The impact of something heavy crashing into the ground of the Hewes’ family farmhouse shakes the house and Jason’s life. Whatever hits the ground scurries into the barn, followed by a frightened but curious Jason. Jason has just discovered a creature out of legend; a beast which all logic tells him should not—could not—exist. Some kids might run. Others might scream or faint. Instead, Jason befriends the ancient creature, and in doing so learns an entire mythic species is emerging from a centuries-long slumber. Jason isn’t the only one to notice large, leathery-winged beasts taking to the skies of modern Montana. A powerful and long-forgotten evil is watching his newly-revived enemies closely. He’ll do anything to destroy his bitter foes and their new-found allies—allies that now include Jason Hewes. Paul Smith’s debut novel, Jason and the Draconauts is a witty, funny adventure story where an ordinary teen finds himself in an extraordinary situation, and in doing so, finds himself capable of performing the impossible.

Wrestling with the Angel addresses the human struggle to cope with death, dying, grief, and bereavement. The book includes essays, a one-act play, a short story, and poetry, including shape poems, rhyming, structured verse, and free verse. In the one-act play, an angel of death comes for a man who has lived an unexamined life and wants to explain why he is not prepared to leave. The short story offers a humorous look at a man who resists aging by continuing to view himself as the young man he once was. The diverse genres allow for different ways of exploring these issues, but all are intended to engage the reader's emotions as well as intellect. The writings incorporate reflections and quotations addressing common human issues related to our mortality and explore reactions to the loss of a loved one--whether expected, such as the death of an aging parent or someone with a terminal illness, or unexpected, such as accidental death. The final chapters examine how aging causes us to assess our lives and why preparing ourselves for death can enhance the quality of our life. This is a book with many more questions than answers, but the reader is invited to share in the process of finding answers. It is a book that requires the reader to be comfortable with ambiguity, because the reality it describes is often ambiguous--a reality that presents us with many choices but few certainties. Intended Audience: Scholars, hospice workers, funeral home directors, hospital chaplains, ministers, and others who work with bereavement issues; classes in death education and classes for mental health professionals in death and grief; general readers who have suffered the loss of a loved one.
Every since the terrorist attack of September 11th, the words "war on terror" have become firmly embedded in the global consciousness. Do we fall victim to bitterness and fear; or do we respond the way Jesus would respond in sacrificial love? These are the questions everyone must answer. As we look at news reports, terrorist attacks are only getting worse. This book gives the heart wrenching story of Lisa Gibson's loss of her brother in the 1988 terrorist bombing of Pan Am flight 103 over Lockerbie, Scotland and how her faith has allowed her to overcome that act of evil for good by serving in the country responsible. This book offers hope and encouragement for those struggling with fear and inspires faith to propel everyone to engage in this strategic battle. "This is a remarkable story of one woman's struggle with tragedy and her care for those who many would say are her enemies." Congressman Joseph R. Pitts "To reflectively read this book is to go farther in coming to terms with what God truly wants to see in Christians loving their enemies. Gibson takes it from religious poetry to teeth gritting reality. How I yearn that every Western Christian who is repulsed by Muslim terrorism would follow in her steps." Dr. Greg Livingstone Founder of Frontiers Lisa Gibson is the Founder and Executive Director of the Peace and Prosperity Alliance. She is an attorney and has served in senior leadership positions with advocacy and global missions organizations. Lisa has a unique voice on global terrorism having lost her brother on the 1988 terrorist bombing of Pan Am flight 103 over Lockerbie, Scotland. She has seen the power and restoration that comes from seeing true justice, forgiveness and reconciliation in cases such as these.

It is late Winter in the year of 1990. Jason Parks is an ex-NYPD Detective turned Private Investigator… and he’s also a Drunk. There’s nothing new about this combination; it happens all too often in detective stories. The difference here is that, through a billion to one accident he has acquired certain abilities. The accident opens up a whole new set of frustrations and tests of his resolve while dragging his psyche nearly to the breaking point. Coping with his altered life while wrestling with the dilemma of whether he should use his abilities to assist local law enforcement or mind his own business, fosters an internal debate that has him questioning just about every move he makes. There is also the local media that can’t make up its collective mind if he is a champion of Good or a force for Evil. The trail to catch the Crime Czar in his quest to take over and run the Mobs in the city takes Jason from Philadelphia to New York City where he must dispose of the demons of his past there, then back to the City of Brotherly Love to forestall a bloodbath between the local Mob Boss and his challenger. The trail of deceit and betrayal, suspicion and lies, takes Jason from the skies to the ground and deep under it Will Jason overcome: the frustration, accusations, mistrust and his own internal strife and self-doubt or will he: turn his back, wipe his hands clean of it all and walk away?
