Here is a mystery, told against the fascinating background of old guns and gun-collecting, which is rapid-fire without being hysterical, exciting without losing its contact with reason, and which introduces a personable and intelligent new private detective. It is a story that will keep your nerves on a hair trigger even if you don't know the difference between a cased pair of Paterson .34's and a Texas .40 with a ramming-lever.

Quote, "One afternoon, at low water, Mr. Isbister, a young artist lodging at Boscastle, walked from that place to the picturesque cove of Pentargen, desiring to examine the caves there. Halfway down the precipitous path to the Pentargen beach he came suddenly upon a man sitting in an attitude of profound distress beneath a projecting mass of rock. The hands of this man hung limply over his knees, his eyes were red and staring before him, and his face was wet with tears."

Karl Ludwig Sand - Celebrated Crimes

Quote, "March 23, 1819, Karl-Ludwig Sand murdered August von Kotzebue, a playwright in the service of the Russian government, because of his criticism of the student associations and their nationalist yearnings. The idealization of Sand, who was beheaded in 1820, shows just how widespread the disaffection with the reactionary "Metternich System" was. Fragments of his scaffold were venerated like relics, lithographs depicting the stations of his life and numerous portraits expressed utter repudiation of the German Confederation's policies of repression."

Quote, "The hand that had been placed in the bride's cold fingers slipped from them and mechanically sought Gideon's again. The significance of the unconscious act brought the first spontaneous tears into the woman's eyes. It was his last act, for when Gideon's voice was again lifted in prayer, the spirit for whom it was offered had risen with it, as it were, still lovingly hand in hand, from the earth forever."

The Dolliver Romance

Quote, "Little Pansie was the one earthly creature that inherited a drop of the Dolliver blood. The Doctor's only child, poor Bessie's offspring, had died the better part of a hundred years before, and his grandchildren, a numerous and dimly remembered brood, had vanished along his weary track in their youth, maturity, or incipient age, till, hardly knowing, how it had all happened, he found himself tottering onward with an infant's small fingers in his nerveless grasp. So mistily did his dead progeny come and go in the patriarch's decayed recollection, that this solitary child represented for him the successive babyhoods of the many that had gone before."

But it was so incongruous, so perkily smart, and yet so feeble and helpless lying there, so ghastly ludicrous in its very appropriateness and incapacity to adjust itself to the surrounding landscape, that it affected him with something more than a sense of its grotesqueness, and he could only stare at it blankly."

Quote, "Not a whit," said the old man. "England will never understand America; for England never does understand a foreign country; and whatever you may say about kindred, America is as much a foreign country as France itself. These two hundred years of a different climate and circumstances--of life on a broad continent instead of in an island, to say nothing of the endless intermixture of nationalities in every part of the United States, except New England--have created a new and decidedly original type of national character. It is as well for both parties that they should not aim at any very intimate connection. It will never do."

Quote, "Four weeks of this change, with broken spaces of sunlight and intense blue aerial islands, and then a storm set in. All day the summit pines and redwoods rocked in the blast. At times the onset of the rain seemed to be held back by the fury of the gale, or was visibly seen in sharp waves on the hillside. Unknown and concealed watercourses suddenly overflowed the trails, pools became lakes and brooks rivers. Hidden from the storm, the sylvan silence of sheltered valleys was broken by the impetuous rush of waters; even the tiny streamlet that traversed Flip's retreat in the Gin and Ginger Woods became a cascade."

Sonnets from the Portugese
/eBooks/Literature/Sonnets_from_the_Portugese
Sonnets from the Portuguese: A Celebration of Love was written by Elizabeth Barrett Browning, (1806-1861) - one of the most influential female poets in British literature. Elizabeth secretly wrote the 44 love sonnets in 1845-6 during her courtship with fellow poet Robert Browning. The two met after Elizabeth praised one of Robert�s poems in her work, �The Courtship of Lady Geraldine�. Thus began an exchange of love letters between the two that culminated in their meeting in person, as each poem marks a point in their evolving relationship. Elizabeth did not show the poems to Robert until after they were married in September of 1846. At her husband's suggestion, the second edition of her Poems included her love sonnets which were first published in 1850. In 1861, Elizabeth Barrett Browning died at the age of 55. Her son, born 1849, and husband returned to England after her death. The sonnets helped increase Elizabeth�s popularity as a writer and the story of their romance continues to be famous today.

SWITCHWORDS
/eBooks/Self_Help/SWITCHWORDS
Intentional creative thoughts bring about intentional desired results. People have customarily expressed their intentional creative thoughts as affirmations, declarations, or mantras consisting of many words. However, a researcher and genius named James T. Mangan (1896-1970) discovered that using only a single word or "switchword" to create with, instead of a long sentence, is much easier and more effective, and gives your creative energy a powerful laser-like focus in this single moment of now. Declare, affirm, chant, sing, or even just mentally "intend" the switchword, and like turning on an electric lamp with a switch, the desired result reliably appears. For example, whenever you are searching for something you've misplaced, like a key, tool, or important paper, just start chanting REACH silently or aloud, and let yourself move wherever you feel to go. You'll soon find yourself going to exactly where the object is and retrieving it (or if it is actually gone, you'll quickly reach a solution to the problem). Or, if you've forgotten someone's name or a number, just say REACH to retrieve it from your memory. (To memorize something you want to remember, say CARE.) Likewise, to get a ride, say ON; to make money, COUNT; to experience love, LOVE; to create beauty, CURVE; to be wise, SLOW; for peace and good health, BE; for protection, GUARD; and about 100 more for other specific situations! The greatest treasure, though, is the master switchword for an optimum life and mastery of any task at hand: TOGETHER. James Mangan published his findings in The Secret of Perfect Living (Prentice-Hall, 1963-1975), now long out of print and rare. Switchwords are so useful for everyone, they ought not to disappear. So in this new SWITCHWORDS e-book, fully acknowledging Mr. Mangan, I have perpetuated and further developed the switchwords information, and I share my own insights, experiences, art, and new switchwords from 30 years of using switchwords in my daily life.

Face Values
/eBooks/Self_Help/Face_Values
Dawn Johnson draws on a lifetime of diverse experiences in her writing. A primitive childhood in the hot Queensland outback in Australia was followed by many business experiences and extensive travel to all corners of the globe. Personal loss, and the past four years of debilitating radiation and surgery, have taught priceless lessons and opened her eyes to the problems of people suffering various forms of trauma. These experiences have encouraged her to share her story in the hope it may help someone else. The catastrophic events that have taken her to the depths of despair have also built an inner strength, and have made her appreciate the value and preciousness of life. She found it difficult to understand that true worth is not in face value, but in the inner self. Her aim now is to work her way around Australia in her caravan and promote skin cancer awareness through Face Values. The downloaded version on this website is free - visit the publisher's website if you would like to purchase the book on CD.

How to Pass Exams Easily
/eBooks/Self_Help/How_to_Pass_Exams_Easily
So you'd like to pass your exams easily? Well it can be done, but let me first emphasise that the title of this book says it all. You can pass your exams easily. BUT you also have to do what the rest of the title says, which is WORK smarter rather than harder. This book is not magical. It casts no spells and creates no miracles. If you are looking for a way of passing your exams without working, then this book (or any others) is not your answer. I know of no method of passing exams without working. However, I found out relatively late in my academic career that there were easier ways to study for exams. This made passing them exceptionally easy after I mastered the technique. I might also point out that once my results dramatically improved, I actually wanted to work (study) more (and harder) because I enjoyed the success I achieved and I was therefore happy to strive for more. Therefore, this book has been written for those students who would like to pass with higher grades. This book will give you some practical information about how to sit for exams and pass them. There are some other practical lessons you can learn from this book as well; however, the main objective is for you to achieve greater success for yourself. I understand that it can be extremely boring hearing (or reading) about things that have happened to other people. For that reason I rarely talk about my own experiences when I converse with others. This book is an exception, however. I have outlined many of the significant events in my life, not because I necessarily feel them they are of much interest to you, but because there are valuable lessons to be learnt. So, you may be able to avoid some of the heart-ache that I suffered because of my own inexperience and inability to understand the situation at the time.

Enjoy this philosophical, light-hearted sojourn with two friends who have travelled diverse paths but took the time to be open and compassionate, respecting each other's uniqueness.

Love III The Human Soul.
/eBooks/Self_Help/Love_III_The_Human_Soul%2E
This is the autobiographical account of a Mystic�s spiritual journey beginning with a detailed and thoroughly fascinating description of his seeing a human soul in broad daylight in 1995. Not being a drinker or drug taker and never having heard of any such experience before, he was blown away by what he learned. What follows is the story of his very human experiences and thoughts concerning this life changing epiphany. Although he knows he is not alone in this, he only knows of one other person who definitely shared his experience and that is �Lord Krishna� founder of the Hindu religion thousands of years ago. He suspects that other experiencers of this phenomena have probably been too afraid of the repercussions to speak up and declare themselves. The utter profoundness of his experience caused him to plunge into several years of intense study trying to find any reference to such an experience by others. This necessitated his reading very broadly and looking into the origins of the great religions of the World, their history and their teachings and commonality. Combined with the tremendous knowledge and understanding given him in his epiphany and with his inherent insightfulness, he learnt that the origins of Christianity ly not in Israel; but in Egypt. In addition to this, he also reveals the quite obvious timing of the Exodus and just what Christ�s teachings were truly about, and it wasn�t religion. The information he reveals in this book has the power to completely change the present teachings of religionists and the churches and to turn current theological thinking on its head. This is a truly fascinating book and being fact, not fiction, it has the power to change lives and change history. At only $9.50US for approx 300 pages of fascinating reading, it is great value for money.

A GUIDE TO FRENCH POLISHING
/eBooks/Self_Help/A_GUIDE_TO_FRENCH_POLISHING
Early in the present century the method generally adopted for polishing furniture was by rubbing with beeswax and turpentine or with linseed-oil. That process, however, was never considered to be very satisfactory, which fact probably led to experiments being made for the discovery of an improvement. The first intimation of success in this direction appeared in the Mechanic's Magazine of November 22, 1823, and ran as follows: "The Parisians have now introduced an entirely new mode of polishing, which is called plaque, and is to wood precisely what plating is to metal. The wood by some process is made to resemble marble, and has all the beauty of that article with much of its solidity. It is even asserted by persons who have made trial of the new mode that water may be spilled upon it without staining it." Such was the announcement of an invention which was destined ultimately to become a new industry. This book takes your to the heart of this ancient craft with all the many recipies for creating the different effects

How to Pass Exams Easily
/eBooks/Education/How_to_Pass_Exams_Easily
So you'd like to pass your exams easily? Well it can be done, but let me first emphasise that the title of this book says it all. You can pass your exams easily. BUT you also have to do what the rest of the title says, which is WORK smarter rather than harder. This book is not magical. It casts no spells and creates no miracles. If you are looking for a way of passing your exams without working, then this book (or any others) is not your answer. I know of no method of passing exams without working. However, I found out relatively late in my academic career that there were easier ways to study for exams. This made passing them exceptionally easy after I mastered the technique. I might also point out that once my results dramatically improved, I actually wanted to work (study) more (and harder) because I enjoyed the success I achieved and I was therefore happy to strive for more. Therefore, this book has been written for those students who would like to pass with higher grades. This book will give you some practical information about how to sit for exams and pass them. There are some other practical lessons you can learn from this book as well; however, the main objective is for you to achieve greater success for yourself. I understand that it can be extremely boring hearing (or reading) about things that have happened to other people. For that reason I rarely talk about my own experiences when I converse with others. This book is an exception, however. I have outlined many of the significant events in my life, not because I necessarily feel them they are of much interest to you, but because there are valuable lessons to be learnt. So, you may be able to avoid some of the heart-ache that I suffered because of my own inexperience and inability to understand the situation at the time.

The Origin and History of Glasgow Streets
/eBooks/Education/The_Origin_and_History_of_Glasgow_Streets
Compiled and written by Hugh MacIntosh during 1902, and published by James Hedderwick & Sons of Glasgow, Scotland, that same year, this historical reference work gives an insight into the reasoning behind the naming of many of Glasgow's streets during the 17th, 18th, and 19th centuries, many of which still exist today. As this appears to be the only work of its kind, the intervening years have seen it become arguably the standard reference source for determining the origin of Glasgow�s older street names. Also included is a report taken from an 1857 � 1858 survey, which contains some interesting facts and figures about Glasgow up to that time.
