A.D. Winans talks candidly in his own words about his friendships with such literary luminaries as Alvah Bessie, one of the Hollywood 10, Bob Kaufmaun, the renowned poet of the San Francisco Renaissance, Jack Micheline, poetic raconteur of the greatest magnitude, and Charles Bukowski, the legendary poet and novelist whose legendary shadow still causes much debate to this day. The history and storytelling are richly textured and masterfully woven into one book of magical nuances that come from being there at the time and in the moment.

El remordimiento más grande que tendrás al finalizar tu vida será que los leones no te persiguieron. Miraras hacia atrás con anhelo a los riesgos que no tomaste, las oportunidades que desaprovechaste, los sueños que no perseguiste. Deja de huirle a lo que más te asusta y empieza a perseguir las oportunidades decretadas por Dios que se te cruzan en el camino. Con un león en medio de un foso está inspirado por uno de los actos más valientes pero menos conocido en las Escrituras, un acto audaz y bendito que no dejo remordimientos: «Benaías persiguió un león hasta una fosa. Después, a pesar de la nieve y lo resbaloso de la tierra, el agarro al león y lo mato» (2 Samuel 23:20-21). You will look back longingly on risks not taken, opportunities not seized, and dreams not pursued. Stop running away from what scares you most and start chasing the God-ordained opportunities that cross your path. In a Pit with a Lion on a Snowy Day is inspired by one of the most obscure yet courageous acts recorded in Scripture, a blessed and audacious act that left no regrets: "Benaiah chased a lion down into a pit. Then, despite the snow and slippery ground, he caught the lion and killed it" (2 Samuel 23:20 -21).

A dazzling history of the Tower of London, one of the world's busiest tourist attractions, and the people who populated it. Castle, royal palace, prison, torture chamber, execution site, zoo, mint, home to the crown jewels, armory, record office, observatory, and the most visited tourist attraction in the UK: The Tower of London has been all these things and more. No building in Britain has been more intimately involved in the island's story than this mighty, brooding stronghold in the very heart of the capital, a place which has stood at the epicenter of dramatic, bloody and frequently cruel events for almost a thousand years. Now historian Nigel Jones sets this dramatic story firmly in the context of national—and international—events. In a gripping account drawn from primary sources and lavishly illustrated with sixteen pages of stunning photographs, he captures the Tower in its many changing moods and its many diverse functions. Here, for the first time, is a thematic portrayal of the Tower of london not just as an ancient structure, but as a living symbol of the nation of Great Britain.

After the many wars fought against these beasts known as the Nungeda, dragons of the ancient world, their Emperor eventually retreated with his forces back to the Ice Mountains of Hursagam, hibernating, growing in numbers and preparing for their return centuries later to decimate all life upon planet earth.

Darius is the fi rst of the foretold Diyeen, the one who despite overwhelming Odds, fi ght in the way of his creator and purpose. Will he bring hope back to lion kind and will his presence with the aid of the Nuru bring victory over the Nungeda who vows a triumphant return? This you will gage for yourself within these pages of the Temple of the Lion – The Darius Chronicles. The fi rst installment of a trilogy detailing the role lions once played in a past that has escaped the historical annals of earth’s shrouded history.

En vísperas de la segunda Guerra Mundial partía de Israel rumbo a Europa un barco con veinte hombres jóvenes a bordo. Del otro lado del mar los esperaban veinte mujeres desconocidas. El objetivo: un matrimonio ficticio que permitiría a las mujeres huir de Europa y arribar a Eretz Israel. Pero cuando Jacob Markovich, un hombre gris a todas luces, se encuentra casado con Bella Zeigerman, la más hermosa de las mujeres que había visto en su vida, el trámite se complica. Una noche, Markovich sorprende por la sagacidad de su estructura y la madurez de su estilo. Es una novela carnavalesca, rica y colorida que pinta novedosamente uno de los capítulos más emocionantes del devenir de este país. Hechos históricos y atrevidas fantasías se mezclan aquí hasta volverse irreconocibles: altos dirigentes del Movimiento Sionista mantienen relaciones amorosas con mujeres con olor a naranjas, valientes comandantes conquistan fortalezas ayudados por rengos y borrachos, y el sol detiene la alborada para beneficiar a hombres de ardientes rogativas. Algunos de ellos se harán merecedores de que una calle bulliciosa lleve sus nombres, y otros dormirán plácidamente entre las páginas de la historia. Entre ellos deambula Jacob Markovich, aferrado a la hermosa Bella, sin claudicar. Una noche, Marcovich establece un vínculo de seducción y engaño con el lector. A veces despierta empatía y compasión, y otras se revela pletórico de un humor, agudo e irónico.
