The ash is scattered to the far reaches of the galaxy where the devastation continues in a chain reaction. Billions of souls are lost in the holocaust. A conglomerate of these souls, all that remains of humanity, is invested in a bodiless  entity. For want of a better name, we will call him George.
George is severely punished for his part in the devastation after which he is taken in hand by a God like entity who charges him with the formidable task of rebuilding the world and is given the tools with which to do it.
The second part of the book deals with George's successes and failures.Will he succeed and will he do it right this time or do his successors have to repeat the cosmic experiment ad infinitum?
Finally ... Is this about the past or the future. You the reader must decide ... or read the sequel.

Steps - Poetry / Short Fiction   

Sometimes we take baby steps, uncertain and needing of help.  Sometimes toddling steps—surer, yet still not confident.  Sometimes we take a giant step—leaping, bounding forward.  Sometimes we take a backward step, when we see we’ve taken a wrong path.  Sometimes our steps are joyous, running steps, when we feel we are barely touching the ground.  At times we drag our feet in sorrow, grief, loneliness, and uncertainty, when our feet feel leaden.  Sometimes we walk alone, sometimes with friends, family, our mate.  But all our life is filled with steps—forward, backward, or sideways, full of confidence or faltering.  Life is full of steps.

Design Elements of Contemporary Strategy Games - Gaming     
For centuries, great artists have had a secret.
If you paint, don’t just study painting.
Great painters study every medium: painting, ceramics, sculpture, glassblowing... because the perspectives from every other medium make them better painters.
But you say: I’m a computer game designer!
That’s right. Just as great painters study textiles, great computer game designers study other sorts of games. Strategy games. War games. Miniatures. Role playing games. If you don’t believe us, ask yourself: Who designed Quake and Doom, and what did he design first?
In the words of Greg Costikyan: Don’t be a vidiot! If your sole experience of games derives from the arcade, the console, and the home PC...You will see only what exists in the here and now...Your palette of techniques, your grasp of the possible, will be limited.

Complete War Games: Introduction - Gaming
Designing Wargames introduces the play and design of classic hex-and-counter board wargames. Written as a textbook, Designing Wargames should appeal to board and computer game designers, board game players, and designers of serious war games for historical and military study.
 Phillies opens with a discussion of the basic elements combined to create strategic games, including representation, theme, style, mechanisms, voice, shape, and content. To introduce non-players to board wargames, he describes in detail the play of four classic board wargames, namely Stalingrad, 1914, Panzerblitz, and Fall of Manjukuo. A path to designing a game, stressing the central importance of iterative development and playtesting, is advanced. Several fundamental mechanisms and their variations, including the zone of control and command and control rules, are examined in detail. A case study contrasts a half-dozen games on a single historic campaign, comparing how different designers have created radically different games that represent the same historic outcomes. A paragraph by paragraph analysis of the written rules of one game is given. Issues related to luck and technology are examined. An extensive set of homework problems, many in the form of development projects, support the material in the text.

 

Complete Numerical Tables for Phillies' Phenomenology of Polymer Solution Dynamics - Science  
George Phillies' *Phenomenology of Polymer Solution Dynamics* (Cambridge University Press, 2011) gave a radical reinterpretation of experiment.
From centrifugation and electrophoresis, through solvent and monomer dynamics, dielectric relaxation, neutron scattering, self- and tracer diffusion, probe diffusion, dynamic light scattering, and viscosity, and finally to linear and non-linear viscoelasticity, *Phenomenology of Polymer Solution Dynamics* systematically reconstructed our understanding of polymer motion in non-dilute solution.
Central to the analysis in the Phenomenology were the fits of literature measurements to a consistent set of fitting functions. Figures show the curves generated by the fits, but… until now the fitting parameters themselves were not generally available.
Here, for the first time, Complete Tables to Phillies' Phenomenology of Polymer Solution Dynamics presents those numerical parameters.

Return of the Rising Sun - Alternate History - World War II     
The year is 1964. The Second Battle of Guadalcanal rages in the South Pacific as the United States makes a bold attempt to free ten thousand Allied prisoners who have been languishing in Japanese prisoner-of-war camps since the disastrous defeat of 1950.

The Russians are expanding into Eastern Europe while the Japanese Secret Police wage a relentless unconventional war against America from the Pacific to Central America. Drug dealers are among their most lethal weapons ...

Heavens: Prometheus Unleashed - Science Fiction    
When scientists discover radio signals emanating from a planet orbiting one of the stars in the Centauri System, the President of the United States orders Operation Bold Stroke, a mission to send a ship to investigate. The ship is the Prometheus, a colossally expensive gamble using unproven technology. The project is not the well-oiled machine much loved by writers of escapist fiction. The sponsoring nations balk at the cost, and crew selection falls prey to political infighting. Prometheus's commander is Glenn McCarran, a controversial choice, and not only because he is a convicted murderer pardoned by the President for the mission. The rest of the crew consists of a French scientist and two women, a Russian cosmonaut and an African-American astronaut -- none of whom trust each other or their captain. Then there is the ship's computer, a self-aware automaton with powers unknown to the human crewmembers and a personality of her own; a personality, it turns out, that is not completely honest.
Yet, with all of its shortcomings, the Prometheus mission is the most important exploration ever launched. For on its successful conclusion rests the future of the human race.

The Autobiography of Gaius Petronius Merva - Historical Novel     
Legend has it that the city of Rome was founded in 753 B.C. by twin brothers, Romulus and Remus. Over the next eight centuries, the city on the seven hills grew into the greatest empire the world had ever known.  It reached the peak of its power during the reign of Caesar Augustus, adopted son of Julius Caesar. The Pax Romana lasted for two hundred years, until the death of Emperor Marcus Aurelius.
 
By the Third Century A.D., the vigor of Rome was largely spent. The mighty Roman legions had met their match in the impenetrable German forest, the arid Libyan desert, and the hostile mountains east of Constantinople. The people of Rome had tired of the mantle of Empire, their administrators had become  corrupt, and their emperors short-lived.
 
Into this world was born Gaius Petronius Merva during the reign of Emperor Elagabalus in 220 A.D. The scion of a prosperous family in Antioch, Roman Syria, the young Gaius proved a disappointment to his father, who exiled him into the service of Rome as a soldier.

The Watchers - Ancient Mysteries  
The Da Vinci Code is a diversion, a subterfuge intended to deflect attention from an even more ancient secret -- an enigma first discovered by the Pharaohs of ancient Egypt and kept hidden for millennia by a secret society dating back more than four thousand years.  For all that time, the secret has remained safely hidden, guarded by its keepers.  However, human knowledge is not static and the dim outlines of that which was lost are even now dimly perceived on the frontiers of science.  For modern physics speaks of many universes composed of ten dimensions, each rolled up into its own subatomic space, isolated from all the others by a wall of impenetrable space-time.  Yet, the same experiments that describe these tiny self-contained universes also hint that a disastrous rip in the fabric of space-time is imminent, that the calamity prophesied by the ancient Ruler-Priests of the Upper and Lower Nile is about to come true.
It is to prevent this calamity predicted by both pharaoh and physicist that the secret society was formed, and for which it has been waiting, watching, and preparing.  On the inevitable day when time contends with no time, when order turns to chaos, and when humanity totters on the brink of extinction, there will be but one organization equipped to save the world. 
The Watchers.

Yet, is the ability to invent limited to a few brilliant thinkers in each generation, or is it something anyone can do?  Joy of Inventing for Everyone shows you how you, too, can be an inventor.  All that is required is to identify a problem and come up with a solution using the simple techniques discussed in the book.  Inventing is not only profitable.  It is fun!  Why not give it a try?  The better mouse trap awaits the man or woman who can invent it.  Who knows, you just may become the next Bill Gates in the process

The Voice of the Moment - Science Fiction
 
The aliens came to the Earth to purchase water, the most precious substance in the universe.  That was all that was known about them, so humans called them Water Merchants.   To serve as their base of operations, the aliens erected a mighty tower in the Nevada desert.  The Earth Company soon built a city around the tower to facilitate commerce.  One day, an alien is found brutally murdered in the bowels of the city.  Phelan Rodgers, former colonel, United States Air Force, who once piloted the secret Black Raptor fighters back-engineered from alien technology, is chosen to help investigate the murder along with Earth Company Investigator Philip Sloane.  During the course of the investigation Phelan begins to suspect that Sloane has been sent out to help keep what the murdered alien was doing a secret, and has his own reasons for thwarting the investigation.  Phelan comes to believe that the aliens may have their own agenda for being on the Earth and now it is up to him to uncover the aliens’ secrets before it is too late…

There By The Grace Of God Go I - Poetry / True Crime
TOMMY is in prison.  He is serving a life sentence for homicide.  For thirty years he has lived in the soul-searing confines of an 8 x 10 cell, confronting his life-long failures and a fate most of us would find difficult to survive. 
At the moment of his greatest despair, when he began to wonder if the world would have been better off without him, Tommy experienced an out-of-body vision.  He was literally snatched from within the blackened depths of his mind to stand before the Judgment Seat of Christ, there to answer for his sins. 
The experience left him profoundly changed. There By The Grace Of God Go I is a record of his story, told in poetry and prose.  It is up to the reader to decide whether this is but another story written by a convict who has been locked away for far too many years, or perhaps, Tommy has found a universal truth within his prison cell.

Whispers From My Field Of Dreams - Poetry
Whispers From My Field Of Dreams is a collection of love poetry unlike any other. In his poems, Tommy manages to capture the loneliness and longing that we all feel at some point in our lives, and to celebrate the loves of our life… wives, children, parents, lovers… in his own unique way.

The Magic of Healing - Spirituality   
When our mind, our body or our spirit become unbalanced we need healing. Healing is required to restore that balance. As humans, there is a natural process of healing going on all the time.
If we overeat, for example, our body will let us know by giving us indigestion and then it will set about to the best of our ability to correct the problem. If we listen to our body and follow it’s directions, it will take care of the problem itself.  Other problems are more subtle. When we are depressed because we have lost a loved one, for example, we may need some outside help. to understand and accept the situation.
The Magic of Healing is about you. It’s not about you as a category or a disorder, a success story or a failure. It doesn’t tell you what pill to take or even which expert to see.  It will help you know who you really are; why you are doing what you are doing; and why you suffer with whatever bothers you.  It will give you clear guidelines and suggestions for living your life more happily.
 Come and see the powers the human spirit possesses to cure what ails us.  Come to The Magic of Healing.
The Mandala of Your Life - Spirituality   
 A mandala is a story without words. It is a symbolic picture of your life which can help you understand who you really are and what lies beneath the veneer of your day to day life.
 From time immemorial mandalas have provided a form through which humans have recorded a history of their lives and their journey toward self realization Each mandala in this book invites you to step through a doorway into someone's inner world and share the wisdom that lies in the deepest part of their mandala of life.
The author has over 20 years of experience in using mandalas as guides for healing the mind. Here he shares some of that experience and offers the reader an opportunity to better understand and use mandalas in their own life for healing, and well, just for fun. 
 As one student on the mandala path put it, "Mandala work took a tumor out of my head that said 'You're crazy!' and enabled me to step back and realize that  I'm not crazy at all. In fact I'm unique."

Legion of Roots - Western   

Seven flags have flown over Texas territory: the flags of Spain, France, Mexico, Texas Republic, Confederacy, United States, and Republic of the Rio Grande.  Blood of the conquering races mixed with the blood of Indians and created extended families with a variety of roots.  This story is about such a family who lived on the banks of the Rio Grande and left a turbulent legacy for a Texican named Dan Jarvis.
 Dan left home as a boy and survived everything life brought his way, from fighting in the Civil War to scouting out west.  When a drought threatened his ranch home, he went back to Texas.  He won the fight against nature, but facing the conflicts within his extended family and standing up to murderous gold thieves would take all that even Dan Jarvis could muster.
