“If I had wished to attach to each quatrain a listing of its period, that would have been possible to do”. With these words to his King, Nostradamus, the 16th-century French seer, left... More > behind 942 controversial prophecies. Author Kay Wells asks: what if he did do just that? Attach a list? For the explosive answer, she selects the apocalyptic Quatrain X.72,one of his few predictions to offer a year, in this case 1999. Using the prophet’s words as her guide, she solves the quatrain’s many puzzles and uncovers the sensational secret they hide – a network of dates for 1900-2010 that traces the history of Britain, a fading power, and the United States, supreme at the end of the 20th century. Regions, personalities and events are highlighted, from Iraq in 1917 to Afghanistan in 2010, from Elizabeth II to Barack Obama, from Hitler to Osama bin Laden. It’s all there, our world, our age, marked out for us by the man whose brilliant vision has always been concealed. Until now.< Less

Since 1943, the U.S. Navy publication Naval Aviation News has carried great stories, pictures, and art about the Navy’s pioneering first pilots, airplanes, and aircraft carriers. Retired... More > Captain B. K. Bryans has compiled these public domain works into Flying on Fabric. Flying on Fabric contains 124 true stories of those glory days, including several written by Harold “Kiddy” Karr, who flew combat with the French in WW I and became the Navy’s first enlisted pilot. And there are the legends: Glenn Curtiss and Eugene Ely kick-starting it all, “Spuds” Ellyson and “Al” Cunningham pushing the boundaries, and of course, Ken Whiting, a true pioneer of naval aviation. Retired Rear Admiral J.R. Tate tells of his misadventure with an early parachute and of Admiral “Bull” Halsey—the only senior officer of the time to earn Navy wings by flying the entire syllabus. This is history presented as a set of remarkable, but true, stories of and by the men who learned to fly and fight on fabric-covered wings.< Less

More > history, religion and Greek tragedy. "A Relationship" Once her dull scowl revealed her imperfection I was love’s slave. Angels can be resisted, But not the common bond of being human. So I became the lover of this woman Who knew like me the shame of the hasty action, How the uncertain motive becomes twisted, How the result is never what you meant Unless it’s dreadfully so. She never knew But what I loved was her inchoateness, A greedy body groping to express Ideals beyond itself (lovely in blue Dressing-gown after bath, fragrant with scent Of soap). And when she drove me half-demented Being so changeable, could I complain If human nature was the thing I wanted? I was human too. I gave her equal pain.< Less
