Back for the fourth time, a registration clerk for a small-town hospital in Ohio recounts stories from emergency room happenings. This collection of stories recalls outrageous tales of criminals running from the police, patients arriving in the ER with one foot over the threshold of death's door, stupid ways patients have injured themselves, and a variety of recollections of patients penetrating themselves with household objects. But not every case is funny. Some of the stories recounted are filled with crippling grief, can offer a glimpse of the fear ER workers feel, and detail that sometimes nurses and doctors simply can't win against the power fighting against them. 'But I Came by Ambulance!' is a perfect read for a lazy afternoon, when you're stuck inside due to the weather, or when you're in between caring for the same types of patients described within these pages.

In a uniquely entertaining book by a rising star, here are uncanny true tales of haunted highways, weird encounters, and legends of the road. It may have happened to you; it's happened to almost everyone who's ever driven down a highway at night, or in the fog, or snow. Something suddenly appears: a flash of movement, a shadow...what was it? It could be, as the true stories in this book attest, a ghost. These are true stories from the highways and byways of America. These firsthand accounts are as varied as the storytellers themselves—some are detailed and filled with the terror and suspense that made people feel they had to share what happened to them with others; others are brief and straightforward retellings of truly chilling events. Here is a chupacabra attack on the desert highway between L.A. and Las Vegas; ghost trains and soldiers; UFOs; the prom girl ghost of Alabama; a demon in Texas, and other accounts of the creepy, scary things that truckers and other drivers and passengers told to editor Annie Wilder. With so many different stories, Trucker Ghost Stories moves beyond the usual haunted house to offer stories to entice any ghost story reader...and anyone who's ever wondered....

After meeting for the first time on the front lines of World War I, two aspiring writers forge an intense twenty-year friendship and write some of America's greatest novels, giving voice to a "lost generation" shaken by war. Eager to find his way in life and words, John Dos Passos first witnessed the horror of trench warfare in France as a volunteer ambulance driver retrieving the dead and seriously wounded from the front line. Later in the war, he briefly met another young writer, Ernest Hemingway, who was just arriving for his service in the ambulance corps. When the war was over, both men knew they had to write about it; they had to give voice to what they felt about war and life. Their friendship and collaboration developed through the peace of the 1920s and 1930s, as Hemingway's novels soared to success while Dos Passos penned the greatest antiwar novel of his generation, Three Soldiers. In war, Hemingway found adventure, women, and a cause. Dos Passos saw only oppression and futility. Their different visions eventually turned their private friendship into a bitter public fight, fueled by money, jealousy, and lust. Rich in evocative detail--from Paris cafes to the Austrian Alps, from the streets of Pamplona to the waters of Key West--The Ambulance Drivers is a biography of a turbulent friendship between two of the century's greatest writers, and an illustration of how war both inspires and destroys, unites and divides.

From the pages of a lost journal comes the true story of a small town police officer in the 1980’s. Author, Randy H. Greer, details his experiences fighting crime in an era when resources were slim, backup was far away, and danger was often present. Equipped only with a badge and revolver Greer patrolled the streets and back roads of this rural community battling ruffians, gun runners, thieves, killers, and even town officials. Greer’s memoirs include accounts of manhunts and murders, sheriffs and shenanigans, triumphs and tragedies, punctuated with historical events of the region. Working the night shift, Greer shares details of a world virtually unknown by most, a world where criminal activity hides under the cover of darkness. A personal account of the life and times of a small town police officer, this book serves as a tribute to those who dedicate their lives to protect and serve.

This story is dedicated to the physically and mentally abused, as well as those who have raised physically or mentally challenged children, particularly those who raised them as a single parent--and for good reason, for it is a poignant account of how the author herself overcame horrendous obstacles, growing up with an alcoholic and violent parent, suffering abuse from certain siblings, and, to top it all, meeting the challenges as a single mother who had to take care of a son who had to undergo frequent surgery as a result of a rare and incurable bone disorder, osteogenesis-imperfecta. Through her patience, courage and endurance she is, in effect, an 'earth angel' whose true life story will provide comfort and strength for others who find themselves in similar situations.

She was hired to nurse them back to health...instead, she took their lives. For months, the DaVita Dialysis Center in Lufkin, Texas had been baffled by the rising number of deaths and injuries occurring in their clinic. In April alone, they’d rushed thirty-four patients to the hospital. But no one expected such a horrific cause to be behind it all. Kimberly Clark Saenz was a well-liked licensed vocational nurse at the center. The East Texas nurse was a mother of two, and known for her smiles and the stories she told to help patients pass the time. But on April 28, 2008, witnesses came forward to say that instead of lifesaving medication, they’d seen Saenz adding toxic bleach to IV ports. Turns out, it wasn’t the first time. Once caught, the shocking story of Saenz’s murderous practices began to unravel… INCLUDES PHOTOS

Venture into the blackness of space with Dewey D. Whites well-wrought The Deep, Wide, and Dark. The science is nothing short of sorcery as an extra-terrestrial humanoid named John Jay Corsey gives mankind a dimensional boost from Einsteins quantum theory for the love of a twenty-year-old stripper. With science heretofore unknown to humans but which was found to be related to the alien spacecraft that crash-landed near Roswell, New Mexico, Corsey becomes the center of a massive project to build the first faster than light starship to take flight into universa incognita searching for two unearthly elements, but quickly more than rocks are found by the newly-minted Space Marine Corps. Corsey found mankind (specifically the U.S. government) unprepared but willing to build the machine. They jumped right in to the project with the verve and gusto typical of modern man: cobbling together human and extra-terrestrial science to make it a shining reality. On a fenced-in, 200 sq. mile swath of Arizona-New Mexico desert, Sol Base One is built. The nascent masters of the deep, wide, and dark universal empyrean, the Space Marines Corps recruits the best minds and bodies to man the Terrain Explorer, the first starship in human history. The rush to build it becomes a race as world politics views it as an unwise decision and prepares to stymie the ships launch after the Space Marines crafty commandant refuses to reveals the program and its intentions. The next decision made is to launch the mission (425 men on board the Terrain Explorer) before the U.N. could send in inspection teams. And thus, the fate of humanitys first venture into the stars is sealed. Join Capt. Jackson Edison Jed Devlon and the crew of the Terrain Explorer in what promises to be a thrilling, masterful exploration of the possibilities of time and space. Will they land on earth-like worlds such as humanity knows, therefore solidifying the fact of infinite replication in the universe? Who, amongst the extra-terrestrial races will they meet and who will be their friend or enemy? How will they survive? The permutations grip readers with excitement. The writing is riveting in detail and shines with crystal-clear believability. The future is at stake
