The Deer is a rhythmic, surrealist psychological thriller about a physicist who hits—what appears—to be a deer. As he returns from the scene of the accident to his childhood home, long-forgotten memories flood his consciousness, and he must come to terms with the fact that his past, and reality as he knows it, are not what they appear. Part experimental film, part jazz record, but always lyrical, luminous, and austere, The Deer is a poignant meditation on familial love, loss, and the mystery at the heart of existence.

Dog Sense Book Excerpt:

Dogs have been mankind's faithful companions for tens of thousands of years, yet today they are regularly treated as either pack-following wolves or furry humans. The truth is, dogs are neither -- and our misunderstanding has put them in serious crisis. What dogs really need is a spokesperson, someone who will assert their specific needs. Renowned anthrozoologist Dr. John Bradshaw has made a career of studying human-animal interactions, and in Dog Sense he uses the latest scientific research to show how humans can live in harmony with -- not just dominion over -- their four-legged friends. From explaining why positive reinforcement is a more effective (and less damaging) way to control dogs' behavior than punishment to demonstrating the importance of weighing a dog's unique personality against stereotypes about its breed, Bradshaw offers extraordinary insight into the question of how we really ought to treat our dogs.

Joshua s Atlas Book Excerpt:

Joshua had no intentions of becoming a super hero when he first invented Bernie his flying sports car but when there is a serious need that only he can ease, he is quick to volunteer his services and his creation. Joshuas style and vulnerability quickly becomes evident when he finds that his activities must remain completely shrouded in secrecy while he mingles within the society that he ventures to protect. JOSHUSS ATLAS offers creative unauthenticated thinking that encourages inquisitive minds to think for themselves at the same time it provides a fathomable story that is guaranteed to remain with you throughout the ages. It also illustrates the charisma, maturity and dignity that is brought about in our youth today. An attractive must read addition to any high school library. Although analogous in many ways to the mildly hokey Superman legend, it offers many degrees of realism that is not present in that memorable saga. Get ready to feel the turbulence of flight and the rumble of the tires upon the rolling landings as Joshua explores Bernies veiled limitations. Only a true sports car aficionado can know the feeling that goes along with the testing of these limits.
