Far From the Thick of Things By Dominick Domingo
Paperback: $15.95
Prints in 3-5 business days
The pages of Far From the Thick of Things drip with incongruous, dreamlike images: a clever trollup braving an earthquake on a London street, a garage sale genie who takes wishes instead of granting... More > them, a theater actress who meets her former self at a graffiti-strewn dead end. It’s these absurd juxtapositions—the extraordinary in the ordinary—that reveal the mechanics of the universe, as well as the inner-workings of our own hearts. 83,535-word Far From the Thick of Things uses language itself to reveal the human condition, but only the spaces between can breathe metaphysical truth. Equal parts whimsy and poignancy, this collection of short stories is populated with colorful, diverse characters. We meet them at different stages of life, observing the dots that connect over time, weaving a mysterious tapestry of destiny, free will, and complete randomness. Some of the eccentric characters are cuddly, others prickly and rough around the edges. But all are—like us—redeemable.< Less

More > bat. After fate takes Connie from London to Saxmundham, Suffolk, she makes the acquaintance of blood, death and an Army of Darkness. But it's not all positive. A mysterious combination of earthquake and explosion produces a part-radioactive, part-magical contamination, so that her new home falls within an exclusion zone for humans. A colony has been born.

Nothing beats the companionship of a pet of your own. And no other animal deserves that coveted title of “Mans’ Best Friend,” more than dogs. Many modern day dogs are trained as... More > rescue dogs. After undergoing intensive training these special dogs put their sense of smell to work finding people buried under rubble after earthquakes, tornados, fires, avalanches and other disasters.

So, we can’t promise that your pet will be another Lassie or even a Scooby Doo, but whether you already own a dog and are looking for answers to some of your questions or you are someone who is looking at becoming a first time dog owner, you’re sure to find the answers you need in “The Dog Owners Handbook.”< Less
Travel Book By Joshua Perez
eBook (PDF): $0.00
People's homes will look as they do today because there wouldn’t be much a need for improvement. The way we have our homes today work quite well because we have bedrooms to sleep, bathrooms to... More > defecate in, and kitchens to eat. What else would you need in life?Sure there can be improvements like things used to make life easier like cupboards, but what we have right now is what we are going to have later on. Another improvement I saw while browsing the web would be floating houses. I know it sounds outrageous, but the way they would make it float would be with huge magnets. The way this would help would be to make the house unable to be broken from an earthquake, because it is off the ground. The way the magnets would lift it off the ground, is that magnets attract and repel, so you put the magnets on the ground and the bottom of the house so that the magnets push the house up to float.< Less

Quarry By Wot Blowers
eBook (ePub): $8.70
An area of northern England has been acting as a portal between this and a different, near-parallel dimension. Susceptible people can use the instability in the space-time continuum, calling it going... More > through the Mirror. Discovering two susceptibles, Jed and Gail, old-hand Therese recruits them to join her as an agent of the rebels who are trying to bring down the regime on the other side of the Mirror. Once through they discover not one, but at least four interlaced dimensions, people with emanations and a nightmare totalitarian government. Dissidents are disappeared or hunted as quarry with dogs, nobody knows whose side anyone is on, rules govern everything and the country is racked by earthquakes. But because they can ride the shifts in the continuum Jed and Gail are immune to the fear that grips the majority and soon become successful agents. Before the end, however, Chaos Theory comes into play and those who don’t understand Schrödinger’s Cat have to get a grip on it very quickly.< Less
