There are no second chances—or are there? Krista Mueller is in a good place. She has a successful career as a professor of history; she’s respected and well-liked; and she lives hundreds of miles from her hometown and the distant mother she could never please. It’s been more than a decade since Alzheimer’s disease first claimed Charlotte Mueller’s mind, but Krista has dutifully kept her mother in a first-class nursing home. Now Charlotte is dying of heart failure and, surprised by her own emotions, Krista rushes to Taos, New Mexico, to sit at her estranged mother’s side as she slips away. Battling feelings of loss, abandonment, and relief, Krista is also unsettled by her proximity to Dane McConnell, director of the nursing home—and, once upon a time, her first love. Dane’s kind and gentle spirit—and a surprising discovery about her mother—make Krista wonder if she can at last close the distance between her and her mother … and open the part of her heart she thought was lost forever. “A timeless tale, to be kept every day in the heart as a reminder that forgiveness is a gift to self.” —PATRICIA HICKMAN, author of The Pirate Queen Previously released as Christmas Every Morning

Come Sundown contains a collection of poems that will take you back in time, to the early 1950s and into the turbulent ’60s. You will find that there are poems that will take you into my world of pragmatic thought, the invasion of a dysfunctional or semi-dysfunctional mind, and my state of reasoning, which will seem mind-boggling at times. It contains memorable times of my youth, some fond and some are about my personal struggles and growing up on the south side of Chicago. Hopefully this book will leave you in awe of the past and incite you to ponder the future, luring you into reconsidering the value of family and friends. I try adding a little humor to some of my poems so that all won’t seem morbid or come from an irrational mind. We all have mountains to climb and rivers to cross, there are loves we’ve gained and so many precious ones we’ve lost. This book gives us a chance to look at life from different perspectives. Sometimes we seem to be drowning in a sea of non-conforming progression and yet there are anomalies that come into our lives which give us hope. We fantasize and we dream. After reading Come Sundown, you would have taken a dazzling trip into the realms of an altered state of being. You will find yourself descending deep into your own world of boundless thoughts and misconceptions. You will feel the gravitational pull into my mind and the challenges of yours, which allows a glimpse into the inner workings of an overactive mind. Not only does this book look at things from a dysfunctional point of view, it also takes a gentle look at the spiritual part of life.

The Chicago Literary Experience is a concise literary history of the city of Chicago. Taking as its thematic starting point the city's famous World's Columbian Exposition of 1893, the book provides an account of the city's rapid and in many ways unprecedented development from trading post to metropolis, and examines the many literary responses to this new urban environment. By contextualizing literature written about the city in these formative years, the book shows not only how the city influenced its writers, but also how these writers struggled to transform their urban environment into literary forms. Covering such aspect as the emergence of the novel of the businessman as cultural hero, the humorous newspaper columns of the late nineteenth century, and the Depression-era revitalization of Chicago literature from its ethnic neighborhoods, the book moves beyond the obvious "classics" and rediscovers a vibrant literary tradition that restores almost-forgotten writers such as Eugene Field and Floyd Dell to their place in American literary history. Given the historical approach and the breadth of material covered, the book will be valuable to anyone wanting to understand how American literature in this defining period moved from the farm to the city-and what happened to it once it had arrived. Authors discussed include Jane Addams, George Ade, Nelson Algren, Sherwood Anderson, Saul Bellow, Gwendolyn Brooks, Willa Cather, Floyd Dell, Theodore Dreiser, James T. Farrell, Eugene Field, Henry B. Fuller, Hamlin Garland, Robert Herrick, Jack London, Frank Norris, Carl Sandburg, Upton Sinclair and Richard Wright. Frederik Byrn Køhlert has an M.A. in English and Scandinavian Literature from Aarhus University as well as an M.A. in English from the University of Oregon.

The Fey worlds are very much alive among us, even though we may have forgotten their existence, and know very little about them. This is the journey, of one of those distant homeworlds, which the fey have inhabited since the dawn of time and begins to tell the tale one thousand years after King Balor tried to eliminate the offspring of his daughter Eithne, simply because it was scribed he would die at the hands of one of them. It tells the tale through their Shadow Scrolls; starting with the Shapeshifter Sibrey, as she flees from the Dragonlord sent to retrieve her, and comes in contact with the Goddesses, Witches, Selkies, Elementals, Dark-Sidhe, and one determined Wood Sprite that simply annoys everyone, as she flees for her life and they rush to save her from her destiny and the Sling that hunts her. The epic saga is the first of many novels about the Tuatha De Danann's army of Aelves, while the Author weaves a tale of fantasy and mythology that will draw you in, making you remember the tale of the evil King and the repercussions that have been left on this planet in the wake of his demise. This is book-one, of the three novels that belong to Stolen Child's original manuscript, and will be joined by two more to complete the tale in its entirety....

The first examination of Nelson Algren in over 25 years, Algren is the definitive biography of one of the best-known writers of mid-20th-century America. Journalist Mary Wisniewski interviewed dozens of Algren's inner circle, including photographer Art Shay and the late Studs Terkel, and examined Algren's unpublished writing and correspondence, including hundreds of letters he received from lover Simone de Beauvoir, to craft an account as entertaining as it is meticulously researched. Algren reveals details about the writer's life, work, personality, and habits, digging beneath the street-crawling man's man stereotype to show a funny, sensitive, and romantic but self-destructive artist. This fresh look at the man whose tough but humorous style and compassionate message enchanted readers and fellow writers is indispensable to anyone interested in 20th-century American literature.

Man always wonders about himself as well as the things that surround him. He has tried for centuries to unlock the mystery of creation by observation and speculation. Yet the true story of creation would never have been told had not God revealed it to Moses. The challenge of God to human inquiry and research is the same today as it was in the days of Job: “Who is this that darkeneth counsel by words without knowledge? Gird up now thy loins like a man; for I will demand of thee, and declare thou unto me. Where wast thou when I laid the foundations of the earth? Declare, if thou hast understanding. Who determined the measures thereof, if thou knowest? Or who stretched the line upon it? Whereupon were the foundations thereof fastened? Or who laid the corner-stone thereof, when the morning stars sang together, and all the sons of God shouted for joy?” (Job. 38.2-7) In this volume, Watchman Nee presents to us a Biblical interpretation of creation to which science attests. This is not meant to prove, however, that the story of creation as revealed in the Bible is scientifically true but to show instead that God is greater than science. Whereas God’s word is forever true, the discipline of science must constantly be revised. How inexhaustible is God’s revelation, that in giving the history of creation (as found in the letter of His word) He has also disclosed His principles of working in the New as in the Old Creation. Hence an analogy of creation and Christian experience, an analysis of creation and the acts of Christ, and an anatomy of creation and dispensation are additionally presented in order to lead us into the spirit of God’s word. May we bow in wonder at “the depth of the riches both of the wisdom and the knowledge of God!” (Rom. 11.33).
