The Women of Stormland

A story with two time-lines, The Women of Stormland links past and present in an inter-racial crisis as old as America and as contemporary as an Oprah Winfrey show.

The Women of Stormland

Ashley Pennington had no idea what she might encounter when she began reading-under protest-the diaries and letters of her forebears. Of mixed race, and deeply resentful of it, Ashley felt their lives as white women couldn't possibly interest her. Yet she is soon caught up in surprising discoveries about the difficulties they faced in both their career paths and their love lives. Ashley's own problems increase as she plunges headlong into a maelstrom of mixed-race torments with Kevin, the black man she wanted to love, and Doug, the white man she is determined not to love. The women of the past serve to steady her as she passes through a dark night of the soul and faces the hard choices about where she belongs.

Stormland

The five young men and two young women were also unwashed, and the place stank. The men had beards; the women had unruly, matted hair. They were all fairly emaciated. Empty protein drink containers lay around between sleeping bags.

Stormland

They call it Stormland: a sprawling, largely abandoned region of the southeastern coast of the USA, where climate change’s extreme weather conditions have brought about a “perfect storm” of perpetual tempests; where hurricane-strength storms return day after day, 365 days a year. The heart of Stormland is Charleston, South Carolina, a flooded ruin where hundreds of people remain for their own peculiar reasons; where thugs prey on the weak, and a strangely benevolent cult tries to keep everyone insanely sane. Here, plutocratic evil takes advantage of Stormland’s lawlessness to cultivate a weirdly puppeted theater of cruelty. Swept into the turbulent vortex of Stormland is an unlikely duo—a former serial killer and a former US Marshal—who must work together to bring light to America’s late twenty-first century heart of darkness. A cyberpunk detective thriller set in a maelstrom of climatic upheaval, classism, and corrupt power, Stormland paradoxically dramatizes the resilience of the human spirit.

Night of the Humpbacked Moon

When Jill Szekely arrives in San Diego to begin a temporary job as director of the EsCa, a crisis house for women, her first day is anything but normal. A strange man claiming to be an artist seeking a model keeps hanging around; another rebellious teenager has just showed up at the door; and, strangest of all, the EsCa's founder and patron, Estelle Carruthers, has just been found murdered. As bewildering array of clues point to both clients and staff, murder accusations begin to fly. Already struggling to handle the demands of an unfamiliar job, Jill must now call on the sleuthing skills she never knew she possessed in order to sort out puzzles that grow more complicated by the day. The list of suspects seems endless as Jill contemplates whether the murderer is a staff member, one of the adult residents, or, worse, one of the vulnerable teenagers seeking refuge from turmoil. In this gripping mystery, the reputation of the EsCa as well as the young director's future are on the line as a patron's secrets are revealed and a bloodthirsty killer seeks revenge.

The blue eyes of the woman were on him as he spoke, and he stopped abashed. Never in the score and two years of wild life that had been his had Claus the Northman, Claus the gladiator, Claus the champion, felt a gaze like hers.

Roads  A Legend of Santa Claus

“I have not tried to paint the portrait of a man, but merely to present a personality and hazard a guess as to the motivation that makes Santa Claus the wondrous figure he is — a figure who more than any other exemplifies the beauty of selflessness.” — Seabury Quinn ​Drawing upon the original Christian legends that coalesced over centuries into the familiar, jolly form of Saint Nicholas, pulp fiction pioneer Seabury Quinn weaves a spellbinding new origin for this most beloved of children’s icons in his classic novella Roads.

Distinguished military leaders evaluate the essential requirements to insure U.S. national security for the next five to ten years. Generals and admirals of the army, the navy, the marines, and the air force describe the principal risks, strategic obligations, shape, and sizing of forces; current budget constraints; and priorities and projections that must be considered if the United States is to respond to future military threats. Students, professionals, and scholars in military and media studies will benefit from this top-level appraisal of the defense posture needed for the nation's security in the 1990s. This dialogue with top-level authorities answers fundamental questions about U.S. defense needs in the near future. The opening chapters define a basic defense insurance policy and the likely risks and uncertainties in the 1990s. The next five chapters outline the army, navy, air, marine, and strategic forces needed in the future. Two chapters consider how to cope best with the proliferation of global missiles, with forward prepositioning and with air-lift and sea-lift requirements. Another chapter deals with the industrial base that is essential to meeting these defense needs. A final chapter sums up lessons learned from Desert Shield/Desert Storm, management and planning implications, and priorities in terms of modernization and technological advances and how best to improve force structure and forward prepositioning.
