This book was released on 2016-04-14 with total page 180 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Keo Felker Lazarus (1913-1993) was an American writer remembered for her Young Adult novels, of which the "Gismo" series (comprised of The Gismo, The Gismonauts, and A Message from Monaal) was but a small part. She also wrote fantasy, historical, and western books and picture-books for younger readers, such as "The Billy Goat in the Chili Patch", "A Totem for Ti-Jacques", and "Rattlesnake Run." In "The Gismo," Jerry Cole finds a mysterious device -- which he calls a "gismo" for lack of a better term -- that turns out to be of alien origin. It was lost by a spaceship, and the aliens’ leader, Monaal, needs it to communicate with his people. Will Jerry be able to return it, or will the adults prevent it...and ruin our first contact with Monaal’s people? In "The Gismonauts," the action jumps farther into the future, with Jerry Cole’s grandson, Chris, encountering an alien way station set up by Monaal and his people on the moon. Monaal is still studying Earth. Can Chris keep the aliens’ secret and prove humanity is ready to join the galactic Federation? In "A Message from Monaal," the aliens have a last test for humanity, and Chris may be the only one who can prove we are ready for galactic citizenship! “The Gismo and its sequels are not well known beyond a generation of American kids who found them in their school classrooms and libraries. They were published for the educational market and were designed to be read by 4th to 8th grade readers in the 1970s and 1980s. (Am I dating myself if I admit to reading--and loving--The Gismo in school?) I don’t think any copies were sold commercially. That doesn't stop this whole series from being exciting, fun books which hold up exceptionally well to this day.” --John Gregory Betancourt

Lies I Never Told – A Collection of Short Stories It’s what we do. We make our own beds. We become thirty, then forty. We divorce and re-marry and visit our children on weekends, and work at jobs we never dreamt of doing, and have too many relationships with people we don’t like. On the outside we look like any other forty-year-old hero. We’re not though, because it never goes away. No matter how hard we try to hide it, inside we’re still seventeen, sitting at the river, looking for the girl with the brown eyes. In this intensely personal collection of short stories, bestselling author Martin Crosbie writes about relationships, sex, children, infidelities, guilt, and sometimes, the absence of guilt.

Book excerpt: Siglez Ipt, once and now again of Prul, awakens, disoriented, in the desert to the warming chill of disturbed sunshine and to the impatient voice of the Playwright, who instructs him his charge is to save several worlds—and possibly the universe. With only a blurred memory of his past, Siglez dutifully sets off across a barren land riddled with strange creatures to Afadral, where the moons have converged, signaling that a time, long foretold, has come. Before the venerated council of reflections, Siglez learns he must prove himself the true agent of prophecy. He rises to the challenge of three daunting proofs to claim legitimacy as the prodigal son of lore. Despite a deep reticence, Siglez prepares iPrulautu forces to confront the rival aBekod, who stand between the people of Prul and the fulfillment of an ancient destiny. But can he prepare himself to confront Sra Ja, an aBekod woman of both arresting beauty and a dizzying capacity to see what others cannot? In this epic adventure tale fueled by love, passion, devotion, and honor, the future of worlds hangs in the balance as an inadvertent hero embraces his fate and planets clash beneath the light of their shared and blighted sun.

Download or read No Turning Back PDF, written by Estelle Freedman and published by Ballantine Books. This book was released on 2007-12-18 with total page 464 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Repeatedly declared dead by the media, the women’s movement has never been as vibrant as it is today. Indeed as Stanford professor and award-winning author Estelle B. Freedman argues in her compelling new book, feminism has reached a critical momentum from which there is no turning back. A truly global movement, as vital and dynamic in the developing world as it is in the West, feminism has helped women achieve authority in politics, sports, and business, and has mobilized public concern for once-taboo issues like rape, domestic violence, and breast cancer. And yet much work remains before women attain real equality. In this fascinating book, Freedman examines the historical forces that have fueled the feminist movement over the past two hundred years–and explores how women today are looking to feminism for new approaches to issues of work, family, sexuality, and creativity. Freedman begins with an incisive analysis of what feminism means and why it took root in western Europe and the United States at the end of the eighteenth century. The rationalist, humanistic philosophy of the Enlightenment, which ignited the American Revolution, also sparked feminist politics, inspiring such pioneers as Mary Wollstonecraft and Susan B. Anthony. Race has always been as important as gender in defining feminism, and Freedman traces the intricate ties between women’s rights and abolitionism in the United States in the years before the Civil War and the long tradition of radical women of color, stretching back to the impassioned rhetoric of Sojourner Truth. As industrialism and democratic politics spread after World War II, feminist politics gained momentum and sophistication throughout the world. Their impact began to be felt in every aspect of society–from the workplace to the chambers of government to relations between the sexes. Because of feminism, Freedman points out, the line between the personal and the political has blurred, or disappeared, and issues once considered “merely” private–abortion, sexual violence, homosexuality, reproductive health, beauty and body image–have entered the public arena as subjects of fierce, ongoing debate. Freedman combines a scholar’s meticulous research with a social critic’s keen eye. Sweeping in scope, searching in its analysis, global in its perspective, No Turning Back will stand as a defining text in one of the most important social movements of all time.

Download or read The Ouroh Trilogy PDF, written by Thomas D. Bryson and published by AuthorHouse. This book was released on 2012-07-24 with total page 802 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: There are few books that surprise their readers on every pageeven fewer that show readers how to live. Boldly, the OUROH trilogy does both. Trevor and Trudy, siblings from Earth, take an unforgettable journey through these pages, a journey you will gladly take alongside them; theyre the kind of inspiring characters that live and breathe on the page and live on in your mind and heart long after the storys final word. You cant help but root for and identify with them. Their journey is rich with the power of words and wishes, spoken and unspoken. Its a journey not only through time (recycled time), but past time; not only through our known universe, but past it to another, and another (Ouroh is the center of thirteen multiverses); not only through our minds and senses, but past what weve been conditioned to perceive to a whole new way of seeing and knowing. This epic tale has been created by a master storyteller and modern-day philosopher, one who understands that acknowledging lifes interconnectedness and relying on present-moment awareness are the keys to true happiness. But you wont be pummeled with speeches or agendas; instead, this wisdom is skillfully woven into the narratives fabric. Trevor and Trudy are joined by Ideas and Imagination, their Ouroh counterparts, as well as an unforgettable cast of supporting characters, including the fascinating Planimals (part plant, part animal, in a myriad of astounding varieties). Thrumming with heart-pounding tension and suspense, the story asks: Will the children save the multiverses from an errant word? Will they right the word that went wrong? In a time when people complain that there is nothing new under the sun, it is quite a rare achievement to discover a book unlike any other. The OUROH trilogy is a true gift indeed.
