Herzl the King: A Novel About the Founder of Modern Israel

by Norman Kotker

On a hill overlooking Jerusalem, the once-mocked Theodor Herzl lies buried in honor as the man who envisioned the modern Jewish state. Neither warrior nor financier, neither theologian nor trained statesman, he was simply a foresighted Viennese journalist who at the beginning of the 20th century brought together from all parts of Europe those Jews able to assess the coming anti-Semitism and join him in the Zionist movement. Like Moses, Herzl led his people to the promised land but did not get to enter it -- dying in his forties, alone, and broken by the still-unrealized task. Here is his story.

Freedom’s Thunder

by Michael Foster

Young, handsome Christian, an English aristocrat, is mysteriously kidnapped and sent to the American Colonies, a new, raw land where he works as an indentured servant and spy. There, renamed Jack Hill, he meets pirates, thieves, cut-throats and villains and gentle Moravians and Quakers. He falls in love with the beautiful and cruel Lisa and the saintly Rebecca. He learns to fight and love equally well. Side by side with the great men and women of American history, he joins heroes of the Revolution here portrayed as real men, including George Washington and Alexander Hamilton, not the flawless statues we have come to expect from Right Wing propaganda. The adventures and passions of a turbulent age come to life in this exciting saga where the central character is the American Revolution.

The Blessing Papers

by William Barnwell

The Blessing Papers (novel # 1 of the Blessing Series, four in all to date: Book of the Romes, Imram, The Sigma Curve) begins years after the Fall of the known world, and reading is a lost art. Young Turly Vail believes his missing father, who hid something called the Blessing Papers in the first novel, knows what to do, so he has to find him. The search begins on the island of Imram, a loose adaptation of Ireland after the apocalypse of the Falling. The big question is this: If all is lost, as has been foretold, what can be found? That is also what young Vail seeks to know. He begins an epic journey on an island that represents what is left of the new world. At the conclusion of The Blessing Papers, Turly finds the papers and believes he can feel the end of the Falling. But alas, at the time, this was not to be. However, after many further adventures in the other novels, with a myriad of characters, he begins to understand what the papers mean, and it is not all good. Then he has choices to make. Are the Blessing Papers real and for the good of humans, or manufactured by other worlds for an even further reason. One answer is found in the Prequel of the series: Book of the Romes. Each novel stands alone, and additions to the series will be forthcoming in due time.

With Hitler in New York: And Other Stories

by Richard Grayson

An underground classic, Grayson's debut short story collection introduced readers to the author's quirky, funny postmodern fiction and such characters as Buddy's grandfather, who wonders why no Jewish people ever win on "Bowling for Dollars" and thinks that Farrah Fawcett has a foreign accent; Sarah Lawrence of Arabia, who hides under a college student's bed while his mother and her maid won't stop cleaning his room; "Chief Justice Burger, Teen Idol"; the depressed superhero Ordinary Man, whose sinus problems cause him to spit phlegm at his arch-enemy Professor Should; and the cast of the 27-year-old TV soap opera "Go Not to Lethe," including the actress who once played Richie's girlfriend and who will not return to the show unless it will get her father out of a Nazi concentration camp; in the title story, Hitler himself arrives at Kennedy Airport via Laker Airlines and proceeds to endear himself to the residents of Brooklyn. The Los Angeles Times said, "Grayson is shaking funny ingredients like dice," and Rolling Stone called it "where avant-garde fiction goes when it turns into stand-up comedy."

The President's Angel

by Sophy Burnham

"A deftly penned novel of political intrigue and spiritual transformation." ...The angel appeared in the White House without warning, no blowing of trumpets or rushing of wings.

The angel faded without saying a word, but its appearance forever changed the fate of the world...Millions of readers have come to cherish Burnham's glorious A Book of Angels and Angel Letters. Now, in her deeply moving novel, The President's Angel, Burnham weaves the divine grace of angelic apparition into a compelling tale of politics, passion, a spiritual awakening, and the world on the brink of annihilation.

This is the story of what happens when the most powerful man on earth experiences a spiritual enlightenment. His colleagues think he has gone crazy. Some plan a coup... Woven throughout the book are what Burnham calls "commentaries"--the world as seen from the point of view of angels, Christ, or God.A novel about the eternal dualities of salvation and despair, joy and terror, love and brutality. It unfolds in a great, uplifting rush of inspiration. Burnham has heard the laughter of angels and fathomed the dark mysteries of the human heart.

Jungle of Stone: The True Story of Two Men, Their Extraordinary Journey, and the Discovery of the Lost Civilization of the Maya

by William Carlsen

"Thrilling. ...A captivating history of two men who dramatically changed their contemporaries' view of the past." -- Kirkus (starred review)In 1839 rumors of extraordinary yet baffling stone ruins buried within the unmapped jungles of Central America reached two of the world's most intrepid travelers. Seized by the reports, American diplomat John Lloyd Stephens and British artist Frederick Catherwood--each already celebrated for their adventures in Egypt, the Holy Land, Greece, and Rome--sailed together out of New York Harbor on an expedition into the forbidding rainforests of present-day Honduras, Guatemala, and Mexico. What they found would re-write the West's understanding of human history.In the tradition of Lost City of Z and In the Kingdom of Ice, former San Francisco Chronicle journalist and Pulitzer Prize finalist William Carlsen reveals the unforgettable true story of the discovery of the ancient Maya. Enduring disease, war, and the torments of nature and terrain, Stephens and Catherwood meticulously uncovered and documented the remains of an astonishing civilization that had flourished in the Americas at the same time as classic Greece and Rome--and had been its rival in art, architecture, and power. Their remarkable book about the experience, written by Stephens and illustrated by Catherwood, became a sensation, hailed by Edgar Allen Poe as "perhaps the most interesting book of travel ever published" and recognized today as the birth of American archeology. Most importantly, Stephens and Catherwood were the first to grasp the significance of the Maya remains, recognizing that their antiquity and sophistication overturned the West's assumptions about the development of civilization.By the time of the flowering of classical Greece (400 B.C.), the Maya were already constructing pyramids and temples around central plazas. Within a few hundred years the structures took on a monumental scale that required millions of man-hours of labor, technical and organizational expertise. Over the next millennium dozens of city-states evolved, each governed by powerful lords, some with populations larger than any city in Europe at the time, and connected by road-like causeways of crushed stone. The Maya developed a cohesive, unified cosmology, an array of common gods, a creation story, and a shared artistic and architectural vision. They created dazzling stucco and stone monuments and bas reliefs, sculpting figures and hieroglyphs with refined artistic skill. At their peak, an estimated ten million people occupied the Maya's heartland on the Yucatan Peninsula, a region where only half a million now live. And yet, by the time the Spanish reached the "New World," the classic-era Maya had all but disappeared; they would remain a mystery for the next three hundred years.Today, the tables are turned: the Maya are justly famous, if sometimes misunderstood, while Stephens and Catherwood have been all but forgotten. Based on Carlsen's rigorous research and his own 2,500-mile journey throughout the Yucatan and Central America, Jungle of Stone is equally a thrilling adventure narrative and a revelatory work of history that corrects our understanding of the Maya and the two remarkable men who set out in 1839 to find them.

Plan It!

Plan It! The Complete Resource Guide for Authors, Book Clubs, & Literary Event Planners provides anyone who wants to start a book club with an all-in-one guide to planning book club and literary events.

  • DAISY (Digital Accessible Information System) - a digital book file format. DAISY books from Bookshare are DAISY 3.0 text files that work with just about every type of access technology that reads text. Books that contain images will have the download option of ‘DAISY Text with Images’.
  • BRF (Braille Refreshable Format) - digital Braille for use with refreshable Braille devices and Braille embossers.
  • MP3 (Mpeg audio layer 3) - Provides audio only with no text. These books are created with a text-to-speech engine and spoken by Kendra, a high quality synthetic voice from Ivona. Any device that supports MP3 playback is compatible.
  • DAISY Audio - Similar to the Daisy 3.0 option above; however, this option uses MP3 files created with our text-to-speech engine that utilizes Ivonas Kendra voice. This format will work with Daisy Audio compatible players such as Victor Reader Stream and Read2Go.
