Brad Cutler, twenty-eight, is a rising star at his New York ad agency, about to marry the girl of his dreams. Anyone would agree he has it all … a great career, a beautiful and loving fiancée, and a fairy tale life ahead of him—when memories of a high school girlfriend begin to torment him. Lost innocence and one very difficult choice flood his conscience, and he is no longer sure what the future will bring except for this: He must find his old love and make amends. Haunted by the past and confused about the future, he turns to God seeking forgiveness and redemption. Three people must work through the repercussions of a decision made long ago before any of them can look toward a new future.

After several months of successful work in London and Amsterdam with American expatriate Fletcher Paige, musician Evan Horne returns to the states and settles in the San Francisco Bay Area. There he reunites with his girlfriend, FBI agent, Andie Lawrence. And Evan quickly makes inroads into the Bay Area jazz scene. Life is good until a phone call from a Los Angeles attorney turns his life upside down. Evan's old friend and former mentor, pianist Calvin Hughes, has died and named Evan as his sole beneficiary. Hughes has left him his small Hollywood house, money, and all of his possessions. But when Evan begins to play through some hand-written sheet music, he recognizes one as a song from the landmark Miles Davis recording Birth of the Cool, and another from Kind of Blue. Evan is soon on a whirlwind journey across the country to find answers from his family and to confront his mother. Was Calvin Hughes the uncredited composer of one or both of these tunes, or was it simply Hughes's transcriptions from the recordings? What was her relationship with Calvin Hughes? And just how did Jazz come into the equation?

An introductory military history of the American Civil War, Shades of Blue and Gray places the 1861-1865 conflict within the broad context of evolving warfare. Emphasizing technology and its significant impact, Hattaway includes valuable material on land and sea mines, minesweepers, hand grenades, automatic weapons, the Confederate submarine, and balloons. The evolution of professionalism in the American military serves as an important connective theme throughout. Hattaway extrapolates from recent works by revisionists William Skelton and Roy Roberts to illustrate convincingly that the development of military professionalism is not entirely a post-Civil War phenomenon. The author also incorporates into his work important new findings of recent scholars such as Albert Castel (on the Atlanta Campaign), Reid Mitchell (on soldiers' motivation), Mark Grimsley (on "hard war"), Brooks D. Simpson (on Ulysses S. Grant), and Lauren Cook Burgess (on women who served as soldiers, disguised as men). In addition, Hattaway comments on some of the best fiction and nonfiction available in his recommended reading lists, which will both enlighten and motivate readers. Informative and clearly written, enhanced by graceful prose and colorful anecdotes, Shades of Blue and Gray will appeal to all general readers.
This is a psychedelic odyssey through dreams of love and death. Comprising eighty poems by Gino Vallejo, Shades of Blue: The Journey of Awakening is truly a trip—one brought fully to life by the haunting artwork of Stephanie LeVasseur. From Bethlehem to Byzantium, from ancient Egypt to modern Iraq, from cosmic shores to home and heart, we drift along as selfless spirits, probing fallen empires’ rubble, cursing despotism’s war, extolling family, praising God—surrendering to passion. Seductively cryptic and trenchant in turn, Vallejo bridges the dark extremes—man’s genesis and apocalypse, freedom and fascism, heaven and hell, the fruits of ardor and thorns of greed—while scrutinizing timeless truths that, sunken, lie between. Intimate and sprawling at once, defiant of form but blended by beauty, each selection—cadenced hymn or cold lament—is singular, and glistening with implication, no one scene is fixed in place. The words change shape at second glance, as layered meanings mix and meld. A labyrinth of yearning leads to paradisal vistas. Bespeaking angst and tenderness and decrying those who tie the trammels, beckoning salvation’s bliss, the trek will be a certain joy for William Blake enthusiasts. En route, we sing a song of earth and promises beyond.
