Through the tale of Loyosha, Ibrahim, and Brojeshwar, the author has revived the appeal of the eighteenth-century English Gothic suspense novel in an Indian background. The story begins with the mysterious death of Damayanti and proceeds with many twists and turns. The changing situations, the reactions of the main characters, the political environment during the Clinton administration, and the tensions of the Kargil war in India have all been woven together to give this tale the appeal of a thriller with a philosophical ending. This is a tragic story of unfulfilled love and self-discovery against a backdrop of suspense.

Poetry, like other forms of creative arts such as painting, music, sculpture etc. is a way for the poet to share life experiences - feelings, emotions, images - and thus express his or her personality. Most human beings (Earthians) have a desire to "be" with others and one of the ways this is done is through communication by whatever means are available. Poetry is one way of expressing one's self. The poems in this book offer glimpses into the poet's soul. They touch on a myriad of themes that are common to all who have undertaken the journey through this particular life in this place known as Earth. It is the author's hope that the reader will be able to identify with, to understand and perhaps to empathize with the various situations, dilemmas, conflicts, miseries, euphoria etc. that are shared by means of his verses. Glimpses is the author's first poetry collection of a non-limerick genre.
This manuscript is one of kind, nothing has ever been written like it before, the story begins in 1941 with the first memory I can date and what I remember and explains why I grew up so completely different from the majority of other children that I went to school with. I begin in Petaluma California as a small boy and continue through the years telling of the hardships, struggles and sorrows my family and relatives faced as they worked and camped in the different orchards on Highway 99 or the 101 and barely making enough money to feed them and buy gas to the next job. Then during the winter each year Dad worked on chicken ranches or such until the spring when we would start all over again. That happened until the summer of 1949 when my family settled in Yountville California and where the story ends when I joined the Navy at age seventeen on the 18th of January 1955.

It?s the oldest story on Earth. You relive it every day. So much of our shared daily experience in the world is shaped by the sometimes dramatic, sometimes subtle effects of the Earth?s spin, its tilt on its axis, the alternation of light and darkness, the waxing and waning of the moon, the seemingly capricious growth of clouds. The ancient rhythm of the day and night was shaping life on Earth before there were even human beings to appreciate it. It rules our bodies and weather and calendars, and sets the tempo for our work and play. Each of us awakens each day to relive this primordial narrative. With his signature blend of science and poetry, history and mythology, Michael Sims serves as tour guide on an unforgettable journey through the wonders of an ordinary day, from dawn to nighttime. Long before we had the tools of knowledge to explain what we observed in the skies overhead, we built mythologies and folklore around these occurrences, immortalized them in poetry and art, created special places for them in our collective imagination and even our language. In Apollo?s Fire, Sims explores the celestial events that form our days, fusing lively explanations of these phenomena with a richly layered history of what they meant to us before we knew how they worked. He explains the colors of sunrise, the characteristics of shadow, the mysteries of twilight. Characters in this vital drama include Galileo watching sunrise on the moon, Eratosthenes measuring the Earth with a noontime shadow, and Edgar Allan Poe figuring out why the night sky is dark instead of glowing with the light of a million suns. Our story ranges from the movie High Noon to Darwin?s plant experiments, from The Time Machine to the afternoon rise in air pollution.In the witty and elegant style that has earned him the designation ?science raconteur,? Sims weaves a dazzling array of strands into a single tapestry of daily experience- and makes the oldest story on Earth new again.

The young shari'a witch Brierley once thought that she was the last of her kind, powerful witches who lived in peace and harmony, using their powers for good. Only the women of her people had the gift and they ruled wisely and well. Her people had flourished for millennia, guided by the elemental beings who embodied the very forces of nature and who could tame the world. But then the fierce Allemani people came from beyond the sea. Newly settled in the land, they at first dwelt in peace with the shari'a. But trust turned to hate and the fear that the Allemani had for the witches soon boiled over into genocide. The Allemani decimated the shari'a out of fear of their differences. And so Briarly hid in the shadows, keeping her healing powers a secret-but she was compelled to use them when necessary, and these actions caused her to be discovered. When she was forced to flee the only home she had ever known, she did not go alone, for she had captured the heart Duke Melfallan, and though he is Allemani, he vows to attempt to change the Law condemning any shari'a to death because he has come to know that the shari'a are not monsters...and they can bring a great joy to the world. As she makes her way out into the world to hide while Melfallan fights to save her, Brierley discovers that she is not the last of her kind. That there are many, like her, who managed to stay in the shadows, generations of shari'a who have kept quiet, hid their powers and have waited. And that not all of whom share Brierley's good heart. The time of reckoning is at hand, the forces that the shari'a once controlled are being summoned once more, and Brierley finds that the hatred that fueled the Allemani ages past is still very much alive. Will Brierley have to sacrifice her life (and that of her unborn child) to save an entire world and make things right for her people?
