A four-time Governor General’s-award nominee for both poetry and non-fiction, Christopher Dewdney is celebrated internationally as a writer and a visionary and is best known for his particular imagining of place and memory. Beginning with Paleozoic fossil formations in southwestern Ontario and moving through eons of natural history to cityscapes and the digital present, Dewdney’s poetics encapsulate often surreal experiences from radical and epiphenomenal perspectives. His writing vibrates in a standing wave between science and art, reason and myth—embedding geology, neurophysiology, linguistics, and post-digital technology within a play of transitory viewpoints. Children of the Outer Dark provides a geological survey of Dewdney’s poetic strata. The poems selected, along with their order of presentation, serve a critical function to mine diverse layers of development in Dewdney’s career. This collection will reward all those who seek inspiration and will provide teachers, students, and other writers with a short natural history of one of Canadas essential poetic minds.

Originally published in 1993, this was the first volume of essays devoted to the works of Cormac McCarthy. Immediately it was recognized as a major contribution to studies of this acclaimed American author. American Literary Scholarship hailed it as a model of its kind. It has since established itself as an essential source for any McCarthy scholar, student, or serious reader. In 1993, McCarthy had recently published "All the Pretty Horses" (1992), the award-winning first volume of the Border Trilogy. The second volume, "The Crossing," appeared in 1994, and the concluding novel, "Cities of the Plain," in 1998. The completion of the trilogy, one of the most significant artistic achievements in recent American literature, calls for further consideration of McCarthy's career. This revised volume, therefore, contains in addition to the original essays a new version of Gail Morrison's article on "All the Pretty Horses," plus two original essays by the editors of "The Crossing "(Luce) and "Cities of the Plain "(Arnold). With the exception of McCarthy's drama "The Stonemason "(1994), all the major publications are covered in this collection. Cormac McCarthy is now firmly established as one of the masters of American literature. His first four novels, his screenplay The Gardener's Son, and his drama "The Stonemason" are all set in the South. Starting with "Blood Meridian" (1985), he moved west, to the border country of Texas and Old and New Mexico, to create masterpieces of the western genre. Few writers have so completely and successfully described such different locales, customs, and people. Yet McCarthy is no regionalist. His work centers on the essential themes of self-determination, faith, courage, and the quest for meaning in an often violent and tragic world. For his readers wishing to know McCarthy's works this collection is both an introduction and an overview. Edwin T. Arnold is a professor of English at Appalachian State University. Dianne C. Luce is chair of the English department at Midlands Technical College.

What would you do if your family was targeted for destruction by a violent Satanic cult? That’s the position that Jim DiMario finds himself in – but has he found out too late? Jim feels the comfortable predictability of his day-to-day routine begin to unravel when he investigates a series of bizarre animal mutilations that have recently occurred in his normally quiet, upscale community. Seemingly by chance, he meets two strangers in his quest for the truth – a sheriff’s deputy, and a TV news reporter, each of whom have their own reasons to investigate the grisly deeds. Jim soon finds himself hip deep in trouble when adverse events start happening to his friends and family. His world spinning desperately out of control, Jim finally discovers that he, his family, and his church are the focus of a dangerous Satanic cult – the shadowy Temple of Anubis, who’s activities and true intentions are much more sinister than mere animal mutilations. With time ticking away just before Samhain, the most unholy night for the occultists, Jim and his new-found allies face an all-or-nothing gamble to save his daughter’s life from the hands of the Satanists who have abducted her. Will he realize too late that his worst enemy is a member of his own inner circle? What do reviewers say about OUTER DARKNESS? A Gripping Thriller - Five Stars! … “Outer Darkness is a gripping thriller, highly recommended for fans who love to be on the edge of their seat with a 'page turner' of a truly good book.” --Michael J. Carson, Midwest Book Review "Bart Brevik creates compelling characters in this story - some whom we can't help but like, and some whom we like to hate. The complex plot of OUTER DARKNESS is like several strands of silk woven together to make a strong rope; you don't see how it all comes together until the stunning climax. An outstanding read!" --Major George Durgin, Author of "The Delta Dogs" OUTER DARKNESS is an Award-Winning Finalist in the Religious Fiction category of the National Best Books 2008 Awards, sponsored by USA Book News
Quakers and Nazis

Why the title Quakers and Nazis, not Quakers against Nazis? Was not hostility part of the interaction between the two groups? On the contrary, Hans A. Schmitt's compelling story describes American, British, and German Quakers' attempts to mitigate the suffering among not only victims of Nazism but Nazi sympathizers in Austria and Lithuania as well. With numerous poignant illustrations of the pressure and social cost involved in being a Quaker from 1933 to 1945, Quakers and Nazis: Inner Light in Outer Darkness reveals a facet of Nazi Germany that is entirely unknown to most people. The book focuses on the heroic acts foreign and German Quakers performed under the Nazi regime, offering fully documented and original information regarding the Quakers' commitment to nonviolence and the relief of the victims. Schmitt's narrative reveals the stress and tension of the situation. How should a Quaker behave in a meeting for worship with a policeman present? Spies did not stop Friends in worship services from openly criticizing Hitler and Göring, but Nazis did inflict torment on Friends. Yet Friends did not, could not, respond in like manner. Olga Halle was one Friend who worked to get people, mostly Jews, out of Germany until America entered the war. When emigration was outlawed, twenty-eight were stranded. Years later her distress was still so deep that even on her deathbed she recited their names. Schmitt reminds us that virtually all the Berlin Quakers secreted Jews throughout the war. He shows how these brave Quakers opposed the Nazis even after they lost their jobs and had been harassed by the Gestapo. Risking their lives, the Friends persisted in their efforts to alleviate suffering. At a time when the scholarly world is divided as to whether all Germans knew and approved of the Final Solution, this book makes a valuable contribution to the discussion. Quakers--despite their small numbers--played, and continue to play, an important role in twentieth-century humanitarian relief. Quakers and Nazis: Inner Light in Outer Darkness, a study of how Friends performed under the extreme pressure of a totalitarian regime, will add significantly to our general understanding of Quaker and German history.
