Goodnight Silky Sullivan Book Excerpt:

"Laurie Alberts' command of prose is exceptional, her characterizations vivid and compelling", said the Detroit Free Press of her first book. "Alberts has most certainly established herself as an author from whom great things may be expected". In this, her second book of fiction, Alberts explores the lives of a wide range of characters seeking to reinvent themselves in an effort to escape the past - or at least to understand it. In "Between Revolutions", which Publishers Weekly calls a "hapless, hopeless yet exhilarating story", Grisha, a frustrated Soviet teacher in Leningrad, is consumed by long-suppressed dreams of freedom when he begins a romance with an American exchange teacher. First drawn to her by a lust for information, he is soon consumed with desire: "He wanted to suck every drop of juice from her mysterious foreign life". In another story set in Russia, Kate, an American, is beguiled by the danger of an affair with a Russian ex-seaman that might ennoble her own humdrum existence. Not loving Kolya completely, but wanting desperately to be loved by him, Kate finally realizes that their lives and their cultures have conspired to keep them apart. In the title story of the collection, a young woman, Allie, takes stock of her life, trying to come to terms with a tough, tormented, sometimes explosive father whose only moment of tenderness is expressed by invoking the name of a racehorse as he strokes his daughter's silky mane. In the beautiful, bittersweet story "Blood Sand", a distraught investment analyst flees New York for a new and equally difficult life of poverty in a brilliantly rendered rural New Mexico. There, among the pinons and junipers, he will learn the hard lessonsof forgiveness. Whether bringing to life the quotidian details of the last days of Brezhnev's Russia, the grubby poverty of dying New England mill towns, or the brilliant, harsh sun of New Mexico mesas, Alberts writes with an easy grace that belies the depth of these compelling tales.

More Than Just Shadows Book Excerpt:

Darkness closed in around her. The fear of being killed drove her onward through the forest. Her handcuffed hands swayed to and fro as she tried to keep her balance while running across the slippery moss-covered ground. High wet ferns caught on her jeans, soaking her pant legs. Is he gone? Has he given up? She slowed her pace to listen. I don't hear anything. She breathed in shallow pants, glancing around for any movement, a shadow, anything to indicate that she was still being pursued. She laughed nervously. Shadows, huh? With demons around, there are more than just shadows to fear. With her last year of high school coming to a close, all Lisa McGrath could think about was being reunited with her college boyfriend, Jason Parks. She was grateful that no demons had been seen for almost a year in their sleepy little hometown. But all good things must come to an end. Lisa was thrust into a new widespread demon infestation. Whether she liked it or not, she found herself back in the role of a Demon Hunter. In clashes with the demon hoards, she faced danger and death at every turn. Adding to her struggle, her best friend had been kidnapped and sentenced to death under the orders of a boss demon. But the one thing the demons didn't count on was Lisa not playing by the rules. Dynamite in a pair of jeans, she was about to blow it wide open or die trying. Adventure, fantasy, and romance all spun in an exciting Christian backdrop.

Life After Suffering Book Excerpt:

Viktor Frankl, an Auschwitz survivor, once said that to be human is to suffer. Suffering is an unavoidable part of life, but how do we engage our suffering in a culture that teaches us to avoid suffering at all costs? Through the telling of two stories, the horrific death of his parents and the exiled Judeans of the sixth century BCE, Chris Williams offers a way of engaging suffering that questions the dominant voices of popular culture. Perhaps hope is not found in avoiding suffering at all costs, but by inviting others into our darkest moments.

The Ischerwood Incident Book Excerpt:

Between June and October of 1987, the US Naval Academy operated daily in its mission to train future naval officers. However, there existed several troubling developments during that time that the navy refuses to acknowledge ever took place. Some midshipmen used marijuana, the public works office hired some questionable new employees, and some other individuals were suspected of stealing parts from the military. Then other personnel, even an investigator, mysteriously disappeared. Something extremely unusual that was written down in an ancient journal was about to be denied by all. The Ischerwood Incident will physically pull you below the beautifully landscaped lawns of the academy into a dark, cold, and foreboding subterranean world that few civilians or military personnel even knew existed. This incident involved some men who were authorized to go deep within that maze of ancient brick-vaulted steam tunnels to work on official business, while others went there for unauthorized evil activities.
