Joel Demetrius is looking forward to moving in with his new stepfamily, but as far as his sister Cassie's concerned, they're nothing but intruders.

As the events in the house gradually become harder to explain, the line between nightmare and reality is beginning to blur-- and now all four teenagers are starting to wonder just who the intruders really are.
1973. The Vietnam War is finally over, but for Lieutenant Jake Grafton, U.S.N., freshly returned from two harrowing combat cruises, his own country seems almost as hostile. When his fists get him into trouble, he lands an excruciating eight-month cruise on the aircraft carrier COLUMBIA teaching Jarheads--Marines--the nuances of carrier aviation. As a Navy man working beside Marines without carrier aviation experience, Grafton's about to discover another world of fresh hell. Taking off and landing from a slippery flight deck, on a choppy sea in a pitch-black night, there is no room for error--or for animosity.

A renowned intuitive and visionary shows you how to know what you need to know just when you need to know it.Intuition is not a rare gift that only a gifted few possess but an innate human capacity that can be enhanced and developed. Synthesizing insights from psychology, East- West philosophy, religion, metaphysics, and business, this hands-on workbook in the tradition of Julia Cameron's The Artist's Way, can teach anyone to achieve a heightened state of perceptual vitality and integrate it into daily life. Intuition, writes Penney Peirce, is "not the opposite of logic," but rather "a comprehensive way of knowing life that includes both left-brain analytical thinking and right-brain communication states." On a practical level, intuition enables us to learn faster and make quicker, more inspired decisions. On a deeper level, it "is a powerful tool that can heal the painful split we all feel between our earthly, mundane selves and our divine, eternal selves." Widely praised in its earlier editions, this new edition of The Intuitive Way, with a Foreword by Carol Adrienne, will introduce Penney Peirce's pioneering work to a whole new readership.
Twenty years ago, Laura Alden Kamm recovered from a near-death experience with the amazing new ability to telepathically scan the structure of a person's body and see inner disturbances in intricate detail.

She has since created educational programs to train others in the intuitive way to prevent or reverse disease. Kamm shows us how to become our own healers by both preventing disease before it manifests physically and treating existing conditions. Clearly explaining both ancient and newly developing philosophies that guide her work, she offers quick, simple, and practical exercises that help readers learn about their unique energy systems, develop confidence in their intuition, and resolve emotional and physical pain.

To America's leaders in 1812, an invasion of Canada seemed to be "a mere matter of marching," as Thomas Jefferson confidently predicted. How could a nation of 8 million fail to subdue a struggling colony of 300,000? Yet, when the campaign of 1812 ended, the only Americans left on Canadian soil were prisoners of war. Three American armies had been forced to surrender, and the British were in control of all of Michigan Territory and much of Indiana and Ohio.In this remarkable account of the war's first year and the events that led up to it, Pierre Berton transforms history into an engrossing narrative that reads like a fast-paced novel. Drawing on personal memoirs and diaries as well as official dispatches, the author has been able to get inside the characters of the men who fought the war -- the common soldiers as well as the generals, the bureaucrats and the profiteers, the traitors and the loyalists.Berton believes that if there had been no war, most of Ontario would probably be American today; and if the war had been lost by the British, all of Canada would now be part of the United States. But the War of 1812, or more properly the myth of the war, served to give the new settlers a sense of community and set them on a different course from that of their neighbours.From the Trade Paperback edition.

When the first television was demonstrated in 1927, a headline in The New York Timesread, "Like a Photo Come to Life. " It was a momentous occasion. But the power of television wasn't fully harnessed until the 1950s, when the medium was, as Eric Burns says, "At its most preoccupying, its most life-altering. " And Burns, a former NBC News correspondent who is an Emmy-winner for his broadcast writing,knows about the impact of television. Invasion of the Mind Snatcherschronicles the influence of television that was watched daily by the baby boomer generation. As kids became spellbound by Howdy Doodyand The Ed Sullivan Show,Burns reveals, they often acted out their favorite programs. Likewise, they purchased the merchandise being promoted by performers, and became fascinated by the personalities they saw on screen, often emulating their behavior. It was the first generation raised by TV and Burns looks at both the promise of broadcasting as espoused by the inventors, and how that promise was both redefined and lost by the corporations who helped to spread the technology. Yet Burns also contextualizes the social, cultural, and political events that helped shape the Fifties-from Sputnik and the Rosenberg trial to Senator Joseph McCarthy's Red Scare. In doing so, he charts the effect of television on politics, religion, race, and sex, and how the medium provided a persuasive message to the young, impressionable viewers.
