Images of 'the beach' pervade Australian popular culture. However the deeper significance of the experience of 'the beach', and its influence on Australian culture generally, have not yet been seriously explored. How, why and when did the beach become part of the Australian way of life? In Sand in our Souls Leone Huntsman describes the forces and pressures that encouraged or impeded Australians' enjoyment of sand and surf, from early enjoyment of bathing, through nearly a century of repressive restrictions, to freedom won in the face of drawn-out opposition. The ways in which artists, writers, film-makers and the advertising industry have depicted the beach are examined for the light they throw on the beach's significance. She traces the development of a distinctively Australian way-of-being-at-the-beach, suggesting that the beach experience has been absorbed into our emerging culture and continues to shape it in subtle ways. Huntsman's provocative arguments will stimulate debate on the concept of 'national identity' appropriate for a new Australian century, and promote a deeper understanding of an aspect of life in Australia that is cherished by many of those who live here.

Having isolated myself from the Lord, I was spiritually drowning, tired and worn from life's pressures. I was finished. No longer willing to go through the motions, I was ready to turn my back, walk away from God, and never look back. And yet I said one last prayer, hoping to receive something to grab me up out of my despair. Alone, depressed, and silent in my chair, the Holy Spirit simply said, "I hear your cry." He rescued me from self-destruction, and placed my feet on solid ground. My journey back into His presence has been a long but rewarding trek. He revealed my heart, and I had to confess, repent, and return for more instruction because it was true and done with love. I am humbled that He took so much time with me. He is my great I Am! My chronicled inspirational and poetic journey back into His presence was my revelation, and I now know that I was not alone in my drowning. So many people feel unworthy, lost, pressured, or isolated, and want to be comforted by personally knowing that God hears their cry as well. God wants to free you from feeling unworthy. He wants to tell you exactly where you are in Him and lead you into a closer relationship with Him. This book encourages you to listen, obey, and be responsible to the Holy Spirit. You are not alone! "I hear your cry" ushered me into His peace. It is more than enough.

The House of Sand is not a story directed at the excesses of the House of Saud and the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia; nor is it a veiled reference to present-day Bahrain or Yemen and their exclusive ruling families, nor even to the once privileged – now embattled or deposed families of Libya, Tunisia, Egypt, Syria, or elsewhere in the world. Rather, The House of Sand is a story about the greed, ambition, self-absorption of ruling classes wherever they reside, who are not responsive to the aspirations of the people, the international political forces that prop up such regimes, and the business interests that despoil the areas. The story is about the ancient traditions misplaced—but eventually reclaimed, wisdom ignored—for a time, and the courage of the people that emerges in the end to seize the opportunity only freedom can offer, but not impose. Author Terrence Douglas has observed the excesses and endemic corruption throughout the world in the course of his travels, always marveling how wisdom and courage stir just below the surface until the appropriate time when it reappears in the soul of the people. Follow the journey across the desert from the perspective of Aziz, who embodies an ancient wisdom and integrity; his son, Sultan, who wields power only to satisfy his personal and exorbitant tastes and foibles; and Chester Holycross, so desperate to reclaim his business reputation, who is willing to stoop to satisfy Sultan’s every whim. The supporting cast of characters offers the contrast and relief—sometimes comic— that the story requires.

Sand Nigga is a fictional collection of short stories, poems, unsent letters, and confessions written by a man and a woman over the course of 1 year. The source of the book’s title, Sand Nigga is revealed in Story 6. Bula’s heartfelt writing is captivating, humorous, frank, subtle, and courageous. The book’s title story is a sharply poignant tale, which addresses imposed racism by older generations upon their unwilling and younger counterparts. In the story God Within, Bula’s finely tuned ear for combining irony and humor with compassion is very telling, as story’s protagonist asks the reader a series of questions and poses a seemingly radical scenario to allow for an imaginative adventure through America. Unsent Letters and Confessions take the reader on a journey through the comedic adventures of life, loves, losses, and triumphs. With each story, Bula creates believable and honest experiences in ordinary situations, which become extraordinary. The range of her talent and imagination is broad and yet focused. She has the unique ability to artistically create the worlds of the immigrant and the native, the man and the woman, the priest and the sermon, and the trillion-dollar corporations who seemingly rule the world.

The Shadowlands is set on a distant planet in the future that has been colonized from Old Earth. Its protagonist, Stephen Hardy, is an adventurer and scholar exiled from his native Philos to patrol the wastelands beyond which lie the breakaway civilization of Hedon. When Hardy rescues a teenage boy and his girl lover from the wastes, and finds himself ethically unable to fulfill his duty and see them safely back to his homeland, Philos, his life is changed forever. This sci-fi tale has existentialist philosophic and Taoist and Zen religious undertones and a low-tech slant.

These captivating short stories portray three major periods in modern Korean history: the forces of colonial modernity during the late 1930s; the postcolonial struggle to rebuild society after four decades of oppression, emasculation, and cultural exile (1945 to 1950); and the attempt to reconstruct a shattered land and a traumatized nation after the Korean War. Lost Souls echoes the exceptional work of China's Shen Congwen and Japan's Kawabata Yasunari. Modernist narratives set in the metropolises of Tokyo and Pyongyang alternate with starkly realistic portraits of rural life. Surrealist tales suggest the unsettling sensation of colonial domination, while stories of the outcast embody the thrill and terror of independence and survival in a land dominated by tradition and devastated by war. Written during the chaos of 1945, "Booze" recounts a fight between Koreans for control of a former Japanese-owned distillery. "Toad" relates the suffering created by hundreds of thousands of returning refugees, and stories from the 1950s confront the catastrophes of the Korean War and the problematic desire for autonomy. Visceral and versatile, Lost Souls is a classic work on the possibilities of transition that showcases the innovation and craftsmanship of a consummate and widely celebrated storyteller.
