  1. "Air War" by Jonathan St. Ives Pt. 1

    Jones Jones said he didn't want to post his poetry. I don't know his reasons, but surely writing has to be shared for your own pleasure as well as other's. Sure you take the chance of criticism, but how else can you improve? It's a product, after all.. Here's a light little story I wrote just...

  2. "Air War" by Jonathan St. Ives Pt. 2

    (continued) In the code of the air, it was bad form to shoot an enemy who was powerless, but Amy followed as the other aircraft leveled out and restarted its engines. The second it began to pull up again, she held down the second button on her stick. Her powerful pulse lasers sent blinding...

  3. "Bone Tired" by Jonathan St. Ives (Pt. II)

    (Part 2 - Continued...) He never got to fly down the Black Velvet Tunnel nebula, or see N-space from outside of a ship. If he had lived, I know he would have loved the Fountains of Irridia deep in the core of the Galaxy where there is no night and a thousand colorful suns fill the sky all day...

  5. "Hybrids" is a great read with a surpize ending

    I love reading thriller/page turners/sci-fi and Hybrids by Whitley Strieber fits that bill and then some. I had never read anything by Streiber before even though he is very well known in the aliens genre. Streiber wrote The Grays which is a classic in the genre. Others know him as the author...

  6. "Life and Death in the Miller House" Pt. II

    I took a deep breath. I had to fix it, and it wasn’t just the idea of rebooting an expensive machine, (a process that would undoubtedly be expensive too)…no, it was something else. I had a sudden feeling of responsibility, as if I’d been arrested and forgotten to arrange for a kitten to be fed. I...

  8. "Life and Death in the Miller House" Pt. I (B)

    The next few days went by in a whirlwind; a hazy, hallucinatory wind in which I strove to stand upright. I sat alone inside my mind and felt a roaring in my ears. People came and went through my house without my notice. I was lost inside my thoughts, running images of all our short time together...

  12. 19th century British golfer predicted future — or part of it — in novel

    He might be little remembered as a sportsman, but 19th century Scottish golfer Jack McCullogh is causing a stir with a novel that appears to eerily predict the modern era, a report said late Wednesday. A previously unknown 1892 novel by McCullogh, which tells the tale of a man who sleeps...

  13. 70 years ago this week

    The novel Gone With The Wind was published. It sold for $3, which would be about $43 today. It was on the bestseller lists for almost 2 years. Worldwide, about 350,000 copies are still sold every year. Makes me want to read it again, I do every few years. I've seen the movie a few times,...

  14. 90 Minutes in Heaven. By Don Piper

    I bought this book last night. One of my friends has been reading it & she said she couldn't put it down. When she read what was on the back I was hooked! Here is what it says: On the way home from a conference, Don Piper's car was crushed by a Semi that crossed into his into his lane. Medical...

  15. ?

    Bearing in mind that I'm NOT pissed up, ****ed up, deranged, sick, deformed, a junkie or an alchoholic, black, a victim of child molestation, religion or PC/'green' hysteria could I be allowed to write a novel? Or am I 'in denial'? Regards, shrike.

  18. a million little pieces

    By James Frey Anyone read this. Jr Minks had to have this book, so I got it for her for her birthday. She has read the first 35 or so pages and has explained some of it too me. It is absolutely heartbreaking. This the biography of James Frey and his time in drug Rehab. But how he arrived was...

  20. A ridiculous premise

    I belong to a "book club" that sends me mysteries, but the one I received today had me rolling my eyes. Here's the blurb: Following a tragic plane crash, no one believed that Golden Spurs ranch heiress Mia Kemble could have survived. And no one is more surprised to find out she's been...
