Across the Bridge In the 1960s, fourteen-year-old Eddie Jordan seizes the opportunity to attend a prestigious New England prep school. In doing so, he leaves his predominantly black school system in his hometown to enter the private educational world of White society. Through his own experiences and the experiences of his new classmates, he is confronted with issues of race, class, and sexual identity. And along the way, he battles a personal demon. Across the Bridge depicts the struggles of a small minority of black students as they fight racism on a front far different from the urban battlegrounds that usually characterize the racial turmoil of the 1960s. The serene setting of Whitfield Academy contrasts with the tumultuous setting of Eddie Jordan's hometown; however, the issues are the same and, in some ways, more pronounced at Whitfield.

Jack Falon had it good: successful business, home on the golf course, Cadillac in the driveway, two well-adjusted kids, and a bombshell of a wife. It unravels quickly when Chicago's first family of crime infiltrates his business looking to launder money through his successful chain of restaurants. When extortion fails to force him from his livelihood, his family is kidnapped, and Jack is forced to endure the consequences of murder, rape, and slavery. He discovers a dark and brutal side of his nature as he searches every corner of the city for his daughter, wife, and son. Along the way, he discovers his brother to be an arch-villain with an illicit organization of his own, a brother he must race to a startling and violent conclusion. Jim Arneberg revives the pulp fiction narratives and the noir atmosphere of the '30s, '40s, and '50s. Lurid and violent. Tough and hard-boiled. Mr. Arneberg offers a wonderful, fast-paced story. The characters ... are compelling. The clear conflict ... kept me turning the pages. The author is particularly skilled at making the reader care what happens. Mr. Arneberg is a master of narrative and dialogue. He has a flair for writing and does so with a natural grace born of the true artist. - Writer's Digest

Great mistakes make great reading! No area of human endeavor is immune to human error, as these stories of mistakes throughout history clearly show. Some of these mistakes are foolish or funny. Others are serious, terrifying or disastrous. Some are famous. Others are not well known. All of them are marvelously entertaining. Here is the amusing story of a triple double play, the little-known truth about the awesome angle of the Leaning Tower of Pisa, the harrowing tale of the man who was hanged twice. The famous and colorful mayor of New York, Fiorello La Guardia, once said, “I don’t make many mistakes, but when I make one, it’s a beaut.” Everyone makes mistakes—mayors, presidents, kings, generals, police officers, judges, scientists, explorers, millionaires, baseball players, parents and students. So remember when you make a mistake, you are not alone! You are in the company of some of the most powerful and smartest people in history!

During a cave expedition in the Jaintia Hills of Meghalaya, India, the body of the Doloi(Chief of the Nongkhlieh elaka), who had gone missing, was found brutally murdered, at the bottom of a deep shaft. Thrang Kharwan, the organizer of the Expedition, was caught up in the web and intrigues of the coal and limestone miners, who felt threatened by the cry of 'save the caves' raised by the cavers. Thrang had filed a Public Interest Litigation in the Apex Court of the country against the destruction of the environment, especially of the caves and its unique cave eco-systems, by the indiscriminate and unscientific quarrying. Thrang survived the attempts on his life, including a heinous attempt to toss him into the deep dark shaft where the Daloi's body was earlier found murdered; ironically, a cave that had become his dream and fantasy - to finally achieve his goal of cave conservation. In this murderous raging attrition of deceit and power and against all odds, he finally came out triumphant, to find the meaning of life and love.

On this PEARLIEST PEARL of wisdom and more... Beloved reader, ANYONE AND EVERYONE is invited to know this booklet and of whatever age. It is a doctrinal and somewhat autobiographical booklet mainly of nonfictional incidents, miraculous and so providential, and with a short section of a fictional dialogue. It is a spiritually ecumenical inspirational booklet. The cover of The Last Supper is original and portrays the actual Holy Grail kept in Valenica, Spain. It is hoped that this booklet will be translated well and in any and all languages even to reach even millions, God-willing. It is great to have it historically begin in this Year of Faith.
