Two young women - each coincidently having an inheritance at stake and a grasping, manipulative stepmother holding the purse-strings - have been talked, cajoled and manipulated into joining a... More > privately financed, residential medical research project. Initially signing up for 3 months, isolated within a secure hospital psychiatric wing in a world of petty rules, straightjackets, bedpans, plastic knickers, diapers, restrictive school uniforms and drab prison dresses, each has now served that term several times over; one bristling under a strict boarding-school regime, the other under prison discipline. Overseen by strict nurses, a stern, cane wielding hospital matron & a female psychiatrist, manipulating her young charges by the deliberate induction of phobias, each has been browbeaten into extending her stay. Elsewhere a girl awakens, ostensibly following a car crash – by why is she restrained behind bars on a locked ward? Why does she recall the sting of the tawse, not the twisting of metal?< Less

"We need more Dead Skunks" (In the middle of the road) By James B. Ford
Paperback: $4.99

“We need more Dead Skunks” is a short book of newspaper-style columns. Titles for the chapters (or “columns”) include: George Patton, Sunday School teacher; Imagine Jesus... More > as a teenager; An alternate view of Jesus feeding the 5,000; and The movie “Titanic” and suspending disbelief. These columns include end-notes, which give the facts that support the writer’s contentions. For example, this is from one end-note: [T]he lesson Jesus wanted to get across may have been that if we stopped being so “normally greedy,” we could solve the hunger problem ourselves. We wouldn’t have to rely on “divine intervention.” But in the end, maybe it’s more comforting and comfortable to believe that it’s God’s responsibility, and He just hasn’t done anything about it yet. And finally, the main message of these seven columns is that you have a choice. For you, the Bible can offer either a spiritual straitjacket, or it can offer you a set of “spiritual wings.”< Less
