              Lightning's Children By: Alec Spotsworth Alec Spotsworth lives in Atlanta, Georgia, where he has been a newspaper reporter of minor events for seven years and a columnist for eight. His columns lay flat on the page: a cat with five toes, a hair compound of quince seed, the city's... new one-way sign that has been pointing the wrong way. Typesetters in the composing room scream curses when handed the day's Spotsworth column. And then comes today. He sits down and writes one name: Skeebo Wescott III. He stops. He thinks, and remembers the panties on the bus, visible for the full forty-five minute ride. He types, with no thought of stopping: The smooth bone under the skin of her legs and the deep, rising, altogether softness of her body join inside the rare, thin, swollen, breathing elasticity of soft white panties. Spotsworth's world, and Atlanta, will never be the same. About the Author John Logue was a sportswriter for ten years with The Atlanta Journal-Constitution, and he was a founding editor of Southern Living magazine and editor-in-chief of its book division, Oxmoor House. He has published seven Morris-and-Sullivan mystery novels, and one political novel, Boats Against the Current. He also helped the late Auburn football coach Pat Dye write his autobiography. He and his wife Helen Logue live in Birmingham, Alabama. He also likes to sneak in that he earned a basketball letter at what is now Auburn University.

              An Almost Perfect Season: A Father and Son and a Golden Age of Small-Town High School Basketball (Trade Paperback / Paperback)

              During the 1966-1967 Illinois high school basketball season, tiny Bluford High School, having just over a hundred students, reached the lowest ebb of its basketball playing history, winning only a single game. Two years later, in the 1968-1969 season, Bluford reeled off an unbeli...evable winning streak of twenty-five games, the second longest in a state where over seven hundred schools competed in sports. An Almost Perfect Season: A Father and Son and a Golden Age of Small-Town High School Basketball chronicles this fascinating story of unexpected success, telling it through the eyes of one of the starting players, Randy Mills. Embedded in the book is also the deeper story of how Mills's days of playing basketball for the Bluford team drew his distant father and him closer together for that short but happy time. Rich in long lost basketball action photos and strong in the invoking of the hot, crowded small-town gymnasiums of the 1960s, An Almost Perfect Season is a deeply moving personal history of an almost-forgotten golden age of high school basketball. About the Author An Indiana and Midwest historian and author, Randy Mills is a professor at Oakland City University in Oakland City, Indiana. He has authored over eighty professional articles and eight books on a number of historical subjects, including military history, labor history, and the Underground Railroad. He is a 2006 recipient of the George C. Roberts Award given by the Indiana Academy of the Social Sciences for excellence in academic scholarship and a 2018 recipient of the Dorothy Riker Hoosier Historian Award given by the Indiana Historical Society. More recently, Mills has begun to explore his own personal journey as a baby boomer. Mills and his wife, Roxanne, live in Oakland City, Indiana.

              Pieces of a Whole By: Jay Field Pieces of a Whole is on a collection of thoughts about four main subjects told through poetry. The last chapter consists of a set of memoirs too large to fit into a single poem, a twist on a typical poetry book. Pieces of a Whole is raw and real, t...ackling topics of all kinds: heartbreak, emotions, sweetness, real thoughts, heroism, etc. It serves as an ideal example of the mess poetry can result in when fully expressed in one book. It is the author's hope that readers will at least gain some insight on the different perspectives in life and take away from it how unique it all is. About the Author Jay Field is a day dreamer and night thinker with a heart bigger than her brain. She's always written and has an insatiable curiosity to find her niche in the world as an announced writer. Field wishes to inspire and provide a new perspective on many different topics people may either relate to, or gain insight from.

              The Case Against Atheism: A 21st Century Look at the Holy Spirit
               

              The Case Against Atheism: A 21st Century Look at the Holy Spirit (Trade Paperback / Paperback)

              By Ortiz, William a.

              While intellectuals and academics would have you believe that modern science has somehow proved the idea of a divine presence in the universe a human fallacy and that there is no evidence at all to suggest that the universe was created with a purpose, William A. Ortiz argues clea...rly that the academic establishment and scientific societies pursue an atheist theology with intentional bias and malice. Having now painted themselves into a corner, the establishment sabotages the advancement of both scientific and philosophic understanding by clinging to an outdated and already falsified model of the universe. Equal parts scientific inquiry, theosophy, and political manifesto, The Case Against Atheism: A 21st Century Look at the Holy Spirit will show the reader true understanding of just how obvious the presence of the divine spirit and the universal will is demonstrated in our everyday lives. About the Author Born in 1967 in the Bronx, New York City, William A. Ortiz was, like most Puerto Rican children, baptized in the name of Christ. However, because his mother disagreed with organized religion, he never had to attend any church services or Sunday school. After a short period in New Jersey, William moved to Long Island, and he grew up in a quiet suburban town with his two brothers. He joined the Air Force in 1987. He has been a career manager for different corporations for most of his adult life. William has two children, Alexander and Skye. He has never ceased to explore the most important and current theories in both science and history and how they reflect upon the current political climate of our world.
