wives Andrea and Angela. 


There was no one more expert, or more lethal, in the North Woods and swamps of Northern Michigan than Junior. No one could match his ability to stalk unseen and undetected in the forest, nor his skill with a deadly crossbow. He could strike and disappear without leaving a trace...

Until one of the most beautiful and proficient women on earth tracked him down..

A 3rd collection of short horror by Kerry E.B. Black,
author of 2020 TAZ award-winning short story collection Herd of Nightmares.

This latest volume of short stories stampedes into the realm of tales inspired by global fairy tales and myths.

To survive a trip through the vale of the fair folk, you must know the rules. Be polite, but don't say thank you. Iron brings death to the fey, so if you carry it, be prepared for aggression. Stick to the path, keep your word, and be industrious. And NEVER eat goblin food.

(There are many more. They can be fun.)

** 285 Miles of Prayer: A Memoir of My Six-Day Bicycle Sabbath Tour Through Southeast Georgia

by Jeremy Cole

On the seventh day the Lord rested.

We need rest too.

We often get too caught up in the busyness of life that we forget to stop, rest, breathe and be still.

Sabbath rest looks different for each person. For me, I find sabbath rest from several miles on my bike. That’s where the story before you was born.

I saw a need in my life for an extended sabbath and six days on my bike was just the right recipe.

Before you is a prayerful journal of my six-day bike sabbath journey.

May it be a blessing and encouragement to you.
