No one ever posts here. Why? Where is everyone?!

I found a free audiobook that I wanted to share. I don't have the exact link (sorry) but it's at http://www.audible.com/logo and there's a button or something you can press that says download or something like that.

Anyway, it's from David Sedaris --- if you haven't heard of him, you have to download that short story because he is literally like pee your pants funny. I'm not just saying that either. I may or may not have had an accident. Hahaha. Okay, I didn't but his books are GREAT. Especially the audiobooks because he has such a beautiful reading voice. :)

Fantasy Web Serial - Free Chapter Each Week
THE GAUNTLET THROWN

by Cheryl Dyson & Xina Marie Uhl


A Free Web Serial
New Chapters Every Tuesday


We've just published Chapter 5 - join us for more!


Brydon's quest was simple. Borrow the fabled Gauntlet of Ven-Kerrick, bring it home to prove his worth, marry the princess, and ascend the throne.

He had planned for the dangerous terrain and Redolian assassins, but he did not count on slavers and werewolves.  He did not expect the Gauntlet to be missing, nor to find the Kerrick royal family murdered, and he definitely did not anticipate the distractions of a sultry thief and a rescued slave girl.  

Luckily, his worst enemy was there to help him out.

Here's a great summer read for teenage girls - I read first it in seventh grade and loved it; now I'm entering college and I still think it's brilliant. Everything is written in free verse, with beautiful illustrations. Highly recommended.

Happy reading!

Looking for literature with Themes of Motherhood in times of war
Hey everyone. I was wondering if you guys can suggest some short stories, poems, or fictional novels that are about motherhood in times of national wars. I prefer contemporary American literature. This request is for my thesis. Motherhood and war is only one of the themes that I am proposing to pursue. I got my idea from the poem "The Mother/Child Papers" by Alicia Ostriker and Judith Merril's short story "That Only a Mother" and her early fiction Shadow on the Hearth.

Fictions, novels, poems, short stories about motherhood
Hey everyone,
I am in the midst of researching for my thesis for my M.A. degree and well, I am really disappointed that I can't read the books that I really want to read. As my topic is on contemporary American fiction, I was wondering if you guys can recommend some of your favorite fictions that dealt with the themes of motherhood. Any works you can think of that are similar to Evelyn Scot's Escapade and

Slow reads
Well the last book i picked up, Daughter, I put it down after 50 pages because it was moving rfeally slow with little literary affects to keep me interested. I picked up Cry, The Beloved Country by Alan Paton and I just don't see what all the hype is about. I mean its not as slow as Daughter, but the writing isn't as good as I thought it would be. I am on page 100 and I won't put it down. But for those who have read Cry, The Beloved Country, can you tell me some things you liked or disliked about it?
Happy reading!!

Bad reading habits
I don't know how I picked up this bad readnig habits, but I tend to insist on reading books in the order they were published by a particular author. I know some people do it because some authors like Louise Erdrich and Sherman Alexie use the same characters in their works. But I want to know if anyone else does this and why?

Any particular order? (Louise Erdrich)
I have two Louise Erdrich books: Tracks and The Last Report on the Miracle at Little No Horse. Is there any particular order you suggest I read these books in or do you think it really doesnt make a difference? The reason why this thought came over me is because I read Khalid Hosseini's two books in the order they came out, and I saw a vast improvment in the second book. I really like to look for the same thing in other authors.

In need of suggestions for Native American Novels
I am trying to write a paper on Native American literature. I am wondering if you guys can suggest some novels (fiction) based on Native American experiences, specifically at war (such as WWII), etc. I have read Ceremony, Three Day Road and am now working on The Toughest Indian In the World. Short stories would also be appreciated.

Blues4Kali- A Cult Classic for the End Times





What will Winter Solstice bring in 2012?
...an instant of Karma? ...an ethereal spiral dance of the collective soul? ... cosmic judgment leveled against civilization's expanse? ...destruction of the world as we know it? ...a chance for a new start? ...the rise and the revenge of the Goddess? or simply another day in the life of paranoia?
These are the false prophesies that your pastor warned you about!


Reality Exchange Program

"Makes DMT seem like a whip-it."



Crazy Bear said there'd be days like this. As usual, no one believed him. Now, all I want to know is: where IS that lifeboat, and how DO I ditch this ship of fools, without any of these bliss ninnies noticing that I'm already gone?


Captain, my ass. We are equal in this sea of madness.


That iceberg is looking awfully big.



Online New Age Books

Amana Mission is on a quest to save the world, and the only problem is, she can't remember why she got involved with such an obvious scam in the first place. Jesus saves. Christ. What a loser.


Kali kills first, and recycles later.


Hitchhikers, load up for a ride to the Other Side. You may wish you had gone Greyhound.


"What the...?"

*A cranky band of prankster peace warriors who absolutely cannot resist messing with each other's minds, no matter the cost.

*Cocky alchemy-dabbling quantum surfers, navigating the Ethersphere with hand-held computers, switching timelines to find a better party vibe and swap tips about the best temporary toilets for use as interdimensional portals.

*A burnt-out visionary hippie millionaire on a mission from Gaia to build a better "communitopia" by underwriting a convoy carrying telepathic priestesses.

*A wheelchair-bound mindpilot propelling a crystal-powered Seed Bank toward the post-Apocalyptic Garden, with psychic precision...and a predilection for high-velocity extreme driving.

*Hermaphrodite time-jumper fleeing a fate worse than death.

*Anarchist ghettoes where anything goes-except escape.

*Ancient Principals vying like sweatsoaked carpetbaggers for our loyalty as the Final Vote is tallied.

*Long-haired security patrols collecting a cannabis tribute tax from all pilgrims to the Valley of Fun.

*And an underground meat mafia bringing a black magic revival to a bloodless dreamworld gone bland.

All brought together by a secret psychedelic superdrug that tunes users in to reality through the eyes of another archetypal avatar inhabiting a different state of space and time. Mahayana made easy. Budding Buddha natures are running amuck on a virtual superhighway where all roads lead to the Bo tree and singularity.

Twenty-first century Tantra is about more than sex, drugs, and
rock and roll.Confronting the Karma of every wasted breath is only the first step.

Welcome to the End Times. Kali awaits. She already knows who you are.

Do you?


The 21st century counterculture is even weirder than it appears on the surface. This is not your mommy’s MTV Road Rules.

Ride along on this mesmerizing, metaphor-packed bus trip toward ecstasy and enlightenment, as three real-time guides-Amana, Sissy, and Deva, let you in on what they learned when they asked what It was really all about, after all.

Become them for a multilevel metafictional tour of infinity and awaken yourself to the miracle-a-minute magic of mighty Mother Kali!
