If you think evil had been put to rest with Halocline, john g rees’ 2nd book of his ‘anoxic zone’ series, think again. Evil does not sleep, nor take a break as men do. It waits, but it is not still. Patient, but never at peace. It waits until men take their break on vigilance. Then the tendrils of greed, lust, power and jealousy insinuate themselves within the fecund soil of the unguarded mind. That is just the beginning. Evil does not want to be forever on the inside, just behind the eyes. No, it wants to live among men, feed on their fear. It wants out! Sechra was just a child when she witnessed man’s cruelty in the extreme. Her young mind became black with hatred for what had been done to her family and people. Now this is what you call fertile soil. In a moment of childhood ignorance, she embraced the seed of evil in an effort to fill the void of all she had lost. It sprouted. Grew. A dark hand guided her, unseen behind Sechra’s sparkling eyes. Years of practice and natural ability rendered the girl a master stonecutter. No one noticed the sinister nature within her sculpture, least of all Sechra, until it was too late. Then all hell breaks loose. ‘Out of Stone’, john g rees’ 4th horror novel, once again grabs hold of the reader by the neck and brings them to places they’ve never been. And never want to be. That’s the fun of it! Out of Stone, takes two characters from his earlier award winning anoxic zone series and gives them headline roles. They fulfill them rather tremendously; bringing us into worlds we did not know existed, showing us horrors from theirs and other lives that immediately become our own. We follow Sechra, who was a peculiar little girl as Halocline ended and just a child when she witnessed man’s cruelty in the extreme. Her young mind became black with hatred for what had been done to her family and people. Her Aunt Karuna was there more often for the girl, as her daughter Riana & Vlad, her husband, the Voivode, were more involved in the workings of their people and land in Romania. Karuna most definitely thought Sechra was a unique child. Her determination and strength of mind were amazing. She had been through a lot in her young life, things that would have turned others mad. Instead, she turned it out to art. Sechra had turned into quite the sculptor in her teens, continuing on to amaze and confound her family, acquaintances, and then the art world, none of which had never seen such hideous visions, let alone imagine them. Karuna Danesti felt the evil in Sechra’s work and knew it had to be out in the world as well. That was what Sechra’s work was saying. No one noticed the sinister nature within her sculpture, least of all Sechra, until it was too late. Then all hell breaks loose!

Just as before, these poems reflect my thoughts upon my own experiences as well as my observations on the experiences we all encounter at each phase of our lives. Many of these poems, unlike the first effort, are more recent, and therefore image events closer to the present. This time, too, the poems are less chronological, whereas I felt the first poems should remain mostly in the order in which they were written over fifty years. I do not see poems as sad so much as thoughtful and reflective commentaries, very often wry and tongue-in-cheek. The poems in this book are mostly like that.

POETIC SPIRITUALISM SOULISM is a poetic book of memoirs that acknowledge the unspoken contemplations and deep emotional aspects of our human-ness and the great transformational power of our God-ness. "We create our reality, whether heaven or hell, on earth from our beliefs about our past, our present, and our future by the state of mind and self-perceptions that we hold" Soulism imparts the message of the universal spirituality of life, love, pain, disappointment, sexuality, and the struggle for spiritual transformation and self-empowerment in poetic form, and reflects the ability we all have to be an inspiration, and to be guided by Divine Intention, Love, and truth in ways that provide inner growth and positive transformation on a personal and universal scale. This book will take you on a journey into the soul. So as you step into the pages of this book, acknowledge the truths that it reflects within yourself and embrace the power you possess to transform your experience of life.

Long before Maine became known as Vacationland in the 1890s, Wells beckoned promoters and guests from the inland cities of New England. During the 1850s and 1870s two grand hotels, complete with entertainment centers, accommodated these visitors. By 1885 the hotels had been destroyed by fires, but they were replaced with smaller boarding houses and private cottages. Beginning with the wealthy mill owners and industrialists and then expanding to include the working class, Wells’ tourist industry has thrived for more than a century. Summer visitors have experienced Wells’ multitude of natural resources. Miles of beach, rock-bound coast, and refreshing seabreezes beckon vacationers to return annually. In turn, Wells’ economy, landscape, and development has catered to the needs of both these visitors and the year-round residents.

This is a book about the simple pleasure of pebble spotting. Clarence Ellis is a charming, knowledgeable and witty guide to everything you didn't know there was to know about pebbles. He ruminates on what a pebble actually is, before showing us how they are formed, advising on the best pebble-spotting grounds in the UK, helping to identify individual stones, and giving tips on the necessary kit. You'll know your chert from your schist, your onyx from your agate, and will be on your guard for artificial intruders before you know it. Understanding the humble pebble makes a trip to the beach, lake-side or river bank simply that little bit more fascinating.
