In other words, Desecration is a great read!” Patrick“This story eviscerates its readers. It had me hunched over the screen in horror and sitting back in tears within the first two chapters. By the end of the book I was a mess, but what a ride! A meticulously researched and emotionally gripping story created by an author at the height of her powers.” Spineless Reviews“I enjoyed this book very much. I love books that combine gore and the dark past, murder and detective work from a REAL, and emotional, person. Add an element of the supernatural... and that's me in my element for a few hours!” Kay“It's a combination of a police procedural thriller, a historical tour of anatomy and teratology, and has a dash of the supernatural thrown in for good mix” Andy

The Brothers Karamazov

Dostoyevsky's last and greatest novel, The Karamazov Brothers (1880) is both a brilliantly told crime story and a passionate philosophical debate. The dissolute landowner Fyodor Pavlovich Karamazov is murdered; his sons - the atheist intellectual Ivan, the hot-blooded Dmitry, and the saintly novice Alyosha - are all at some level involved.Bound up with this intense family drama is Dostoyevsky's exploration of many deeply felt ideas about the existence of God, the question of human freedom, the collective nature of guilt, the disatrous consequences of rationalism. The novel is also richly comic: the Russian Orthodox Church, the legal system, and even the authors most cherished causes and beliefs are presented with a note of irreverence, so that orthodoxy, and radicalism, sanity and madness, love and hatred, right and wrong are no longer mutually exclusive. Rebecca West considered it "the allegory for the world's maturity", but with children to the fore.

Pandemic Ramblings of an Autism Dad

This book is in no way an effort to complain or draw attention to myself. In 2020-2021, this planet experienced, and is still experiencing, a global pandemic. (Covid 19) This deadly virus killed millions around the world. Many more have been infected with this horrible illness and have survived, but so many have suffered permanent health issues due to Covid. It has been painful to watch. Another victim of the pandemic has been the social life we all came to take for granted. We were unable to socialize, forced to isolate ourselves in the relative safety of our homes, and wear masks to protect ourselves and others when we did venture out. This lack of socializing, although hard on everyone, was catastrophic for those with mental disabilities, like my son, Michael. Michael is autistic and non-verbal; however, he is extremely social. I watched him regress daily. His Obsessive- Compulsive Disorder became one of his only comforts. He began repeating single words over and over for twelve hours straight. He paced the floors from his waking moment until bedtime. His hand stimming (Hand flapping) was constant. His eating and sleeping habits changed dramatically. He suffered from weight loss and insomnia. Every day, I struggled to find ways to comfort Michael, but with little success. As his father, my heart ached to see him regress back to much the way he was as a toddler. The pandemic aged me tremendously. Michael, twenty-three, wanted desperately to be with people his own age who had similar disabilities to his. (We all enjoy the company of those with whom we have something in common.) For over seventeen months, we endured only having each other’s company in our tiny home. I also suffered from insomnia, drank a good deal more than I had previously, my depression raged, my blood pressure soared to 170 over 120 and I simply could not find a way to relax, even with our daily walks of over two hours. Finally, I resorted to smoking marijuana before bed and found I was able to sleep for several hours straight. That is the background for this book. I hope this will also serve as somewhat of a loosely written record of the pandemic. We learned many things as this virus progressed. Most of all, I sincerely hope that we re-learned that our survival depends on caring about others. Many members of the “It’s all about me” generation who refused to wear masks to protect themselves and others are now dead. When we live simply for ourselves, we often end up alone and forgotten. This is also my story, told in a stream-of-consciousness style. I chose to write it in that fashion because much of the pandemic was spent in somewhat of a daze. I was often writing when I was quite “buzzed” from drinking beer. I found my mind was free to truly unleash what I was feeling, without reservation. I have desperately tried to write this in a free form, but with a storyline that can be followed easily. I hope that is the case. Enjoy!-Paul Nelson (July 13, 2021)

Ulysses

In the past, Ulysses has been labeled dirty, blasphemous, and even unreadable. None of these adjectives, however, do the slightest justice to the novel. To this day it remains the modernist masterpiece, in which the author takes both Celtic lyricism and vulgarity to splendid extremes. It is funny, sorrowful, and even (in a close-focus sort of way) suspenseful. And despite the exegetical industry that has sprung up in the last 75 years, Ulysses is also a compulsively readable book.William Blake saw the universe in a grain of sand. Joyce saw it in Dublin, Ireland, on June 16, 1904, a day distinguished by its utter normality. Two characters, Stephen Dedalus and Leopold Bloom, go about their separate business, crossing paths with a gallery of indelible Dubliners. We watch them teach, eat, stroll the streets, argue, and (in Bloom’s case) masturbate. And thanks to the book’s stream-of-consciousness technique — which suggests no mere stream but an impossibly deep, swift-running river — we’re privy to their thoughts, emotions, and memories. The result? Almost every variety of human experience is crammed into the accordian folds of a single day, which makes Ulysses not just an experimental work but the very last word in realism.I hold this book to be the most important expression which the present age has found; it is a book to which we are all indebted, and from which none of us can escape. —T. S. EliotWhat is so staggering about “Ulysses” is the fact that behind a thousand veils nothing lies hidden; that it turns neither toward the mind nor toward the world, but, as cold as the moon looking on from cosmic space, allows the drama of growth, being, and decay to pursue its course. —Carl JungThe greatest novel of the 20th century. —Anthony Burgess“Ulysses” is extraordinarily interesting to those who have patience (and they need it). —John Middleton MurryIt is difficult not to acclaim a masterpiece. —Virginia Woolf

Do you remember

Tanith’s life has changed irrevocably since the death of her younger brother and, battling to cope, she suffers a relapse which affects her vision, making it even harder for her to deal with a life that feels like it’s fast unravelling.Deciding on an early night after a particularly tiring day, she wakes the next morning to fuzzy recollections of a car accident (hers?) and realises she’s not in the pyjamas she went to bed in. Her treasured jade necklace, a birthday gift from her parents, lies at the foot of her bed, viciously smashed.Even more terrifying, she has no recollection of what happened. Everything after she lay her head on the pillow is a blank.

It was you

Milly Temple is still haunted by the terrible accident that caused the death of her best friend in high school and, on the ten-year anniversary of Anna’s passing, receives a card with the words It was you!!! scratched viciously across it. All Milly can clearly recall from that day is the terrible wailing of Anna’s mother when the body was found, as well as the terrifying run through the veld that had precipitated the accident. After the card comes an emailed newspaper clipping from ten years ago that Milly has never seen before. Arriving home one evening to her apartment front door open, Milly wonders if the person terrorising her could be Bruce, the boy at school who’d chased her that day and, when her car door is badly keyed in a dark parking lot after work, by seemingly the same hand that had scratched out the It was you!!! card, Milly becomes convinced that what is happening is some sort of jealousy-fuelled attempt at revenge.But why does she have so little memory of what happened? And who is going out of their way to frighten her into remembering?
