At the gates between worlds... In a war outside of time... He fights for us. Reclusive college student Jonathan Tibbs wakes in a pool of blood, not a scratch on him. His life is about to undergo a massive shift. A violent and merciless otherworldly enemy unleashes slaughter in the streets, calling out in a language only he understands. And it is seeking its challenger. In order to defeat the threat, Jonathan must become a temporal weapon... while remaining completely anonymous. Unfortunately, harnessing off-world powers has its own special challenges... The Never Hero is the first installment in The Chronicles of Jonathan Tibbs -- a mind-bending, genre crossing, action-adventure trilogy. "Thought provoking, action packed, psychological and smart." Amazon Reviewer, Sam G - See full review below. "I have a feeling I will be mulling over the philosophical ideas presented in this book for a very long time. Interesting, thought provoking, inspiring. Write faster, we need more books that pull on heart strings and keep the reader totally involved." Amazon Reviewer, Laura Lee "The Never Hero is a book I wish I hadn't read -- so I could read it for the first time. Hodges has crafted a superb story about a hero who isn't. But he is. Even though he isn't. He has created a literary landscape equal to to the task; a story that comes upon you slowly, then grabs you by the throat and refuses to let go. I can highly recommend both this title and author. If you enjoy scifi, this will thrill you. If you enjoy being surprised, this will catch you completely off guard. I was upset it was over. I want more!" Amazon Reviewer, Joe "Say Joss Whedon's Buffy The Vampire Slayer got together with Christopher Nolan's Inception and made a baby. Then, M. Night Shyamalan's Unbreakable got together with Orson Scott Card's Ender's Game and made a baby. Then those two babies grew up, eloped and had a love child, who they put up for adoption, and was raised by the surrogate parent's of Sylvester Stallone's Rocky and the Wachowski Brother's Matrix, but had a crazy Uncle they all called The Karate Kid... Then you might get something as awesome as The Never Hero." Amazon Reviewer, Scott Baker "I think it's only a matter of time before 'The Never Hero' becomes a sci-fi bestseller and a blockbusting movie. The story is more than gripping, it's throat clutching."

Nothing turns out as you plan, I guess; but I often think if I'd gone to a fortune teller when I was at school and been told I'd marry a guy who makes false teeth, move to Alice Springs, have five kids and become a standup comedian; well, I would have been surprised to say the least.' Fiona O’Loughlin is certainly the funniest (and possibly one of the busiest) working mothers in Australia today: a stand-up comedian based in Alice Springs and Adelaide, she is on the road for most of the year, doing live performances, plus regular television appearances. Fiona has also had successful shows at the Edinburgh and Adelaide fringe festivals, the Just for Laughs Festival in Montreal and the Melbourne International Comedy Festival. This book contains her stories – funny and sometimes sad – about her upbringing as part of a large Irish-Catholic family on a wheat farm in South Australia, her chaotic and disorganised family life ever since, living in Alice Springs and making it as a stand-up comedian. She also talks of a darker side of the life of many performers – alcohol. This book is for anyone who likes to laugh (and cry), who wants to read about a woman living her life on her terms. ‘O‘Loughlin memoir is deep and honest, as she describes her love for her large family and her ordeal of struggling with alcohol addiction’– The NSW Writers Centre ‘Her memoir is charm personified in that it’s not only a fascinating journey through an Australian woman’s life, its candour and honesty is kind of heart-melting’- Australian Women Online ‘This is one which will raise a lot of laughs not least because she is one of those rare people who can see the funny side to everything life throws at her’ - Weekend Notes

This book of poems gives the readers a reflection of the way the author sees herself as a person, as a woman and how she wants others to perceive her. It talks about how she doesn't need any other person to tell her what to do and how to live her life. Being an independent woman makes her realize how short life is and how people should take advantage of every situation. Reading each poem would help change the way a person sees himself as an individual and how one would want to be remembered.

Feast! Throughout human history, and in all parts of the world, feasts have been at the heart of life. The great museums of the world are full of the remains of countless ghostly feasts Â? dishes that once bore rich meats, pitchers used to pour choice wines, tall jars that held beer sipped through long straws of gold and lapis, immense cauldrons from which hundreds of people could be served. Why were feasts so important, and is there more to feasting than abundance and enjoyment? The Never-Ending Feast is a pioneering work that draws on anthropology, archaeology and history to look at the dynamics of feasting among the great societies of antiquity renowned for their magnificence and might. Reflecting new directions in academic study, the focus shifts beyond the medieval and early modern periods in Western Europe, eastwards to Mesopotamia, Assyria and Achaemenid Persia, early Greece, the Mongol Empire, Shang China and Heian Japan. The past speaks through texts and artefacts. We see how feasts were the primary arena for displays of hierarchy, status and power; a stage upon which loyalties and alliances were negotiated; the occasion for the mobilization and distribution of resources, a means of pleasing the gods, and the place where identities were created, consolidated Â? and destroyed. The Never-Ending Feast transforms our understanding of feasting past and present, revitalising the fields of anthropology, archaeology, history, museum studies, material culture and food studies, for all of which it is essential reading.

We Are Enough, We Have Enough Do you, like so many of us, believe that you will never have enough time, money, talent, or love to be truly happy? Do you think you’re not good enough, not rich enough or thin enough or smart enough, to have the life you want? Or that the problems in your community and the world around you could be solved if only there were more to go around? Everywhere, all the time, we get this message that there is something lacking, something more, something better to strive for. In fact, the idea that there isn’t enough or you aren’t enough is so deeply ingrained in us and into our culture that it holds sway over pretty much every aspect of our lives, from how we perceive our self-worth and our skills as parents, friends, and partners (I am not enough) to the ways in which we are taught and governed. But what if it’s a lie? Author and activist Laurie McCammon wrote this book to show you that it is all a lie. Discover how your own never-enough thinking has been limiting you and how to challenge it in all the places it lurks. Let Laurie show you how to develop a sense of enoughness that can change not only how you feel about yourself but how you view time, your relationships, your work, and the possibilities for helping to shape a better world.
