From Frozenness to Freedom by Katharine S. Ayers

From Frozenness to Freedom: A Healing Journey is brief, but powerful. The images, both in pictures and words are evocative of deep transformation from pain and darkness to light and healing. As a reader your reaction will be to immediately relate her pain and suffering to your own. If you have been through abuse, neglect, pain, or disease her writing will touch wellsprings hidden deep within. There may be pain, but there will also be healing – deep and true.

Immortal by Gene Doucette

Immortal by Gene Doucette

Immortal by Gene Doucette introduces a character, currently called Adam, who happens to be immortal. His earliest memory comes only in the form of a prehistoric dream at the beginning of the story, when his name resembled something like “Urr.” Adam’s story flashes between the present and his experiences of both the recent and distant past. Through the millennia “Adam” has appeared as different people with different names depending on the time and place he is currently living. He has been all races, varying them according to the predominance of the region. No explanation is given for this ability. Adam lives continuously and never dies or is reincarnated so this poses a slight problem, but in no way interferes with the ability [Read the rest of this article...]

The Faithful by Jonathan Weyer

The Faithful by Jonathan Weyer

Pastor Aidan Schaeffer is in trouble. He doubts if God is real, a real problem for for someone in his line of work. He sees greed, sin and avarice everywhere he looks, making him further doubt God. He's now got people in his parish having prophetic dreams and finding strange sights in the early morning snows. Sights Schaeffer will see himself one frightening night.

I Am Legend by Richard Matheson

I Am Legend by Richard Matheson

Am Legend by Richard Matheson is in fact a short story. It is amazing that they managed to make a movie of it, much less one that differed so much in content from the original story. In I Am Legend the main character, Robert Neville, is a blond haired man who spends his days killing the victims of a plague that has swept the entire earth, though I applaud the film's use of Will Smith as the main character. At night he hides within his fortified house hearing the screams of the undead to come out to them. If you've seen the movie you should still read the book because there are next to no similarities between the book and the movie. There is a possible explanation provided as to why Neville has proved immune to the the virus that has [Read the rest of this article...]

American Indian Stories by Zitkala-Sa

American Indian Stories by Zitkala-Sa

American Indian Stories by Zitkala-Sa offers a view into life for the American Indians, specifically the Dakota Sioux, near the turn of the twentieth century. There are multiple versions and formats of this book appearing on the Amazon.com website. I am unable to obtain an ISBN from the copy I have, so I cannot tell you which Kindle version it is, other than to affirm it came with no cover image and was $1.00 or less. I have a collection of old mythologies and legends on my Kindle for PC obtained from Amazon for little to nothing and this volume is among them. The lack of information on older volumes is a particular problem with Amazon’s Kindle versions. This difficulty is outweighed by the fact the electronic format makes widely [Read the rest of this article...]

Heart-Shaped Box by Joe Hill

Heart-Shaped Box by Joe Hill

Heart-Shaped Box is Joe Hill's debut novel. Don't judge the book by its name. It isn't some sappy romance or anything soft and fuzzy and warm, instead it's a face-paced ride through the terror of Joe Hill's rather twisted and warped imagination. Heart-Shaped Box is one of those novels that make you afraid to turn the page, but leave you unable to stop turning the page. Last night after finishing it was the first night I was able to sleep decently since I had started the book. I knew what happened to the characters. I didn't try to lay down with their trials still shooting through my head, wondering what was going to happen to them next. There was resolution, even through the terror of the book. There were still strange dreams caused by [Read the rest of this article...]
