No Ghost

by X13 on ‎04-28-2017 06:39 (42 Views)

Good Day Lulu,



I am proud to announce the recent publishing of my first full-length novel, No Ghost.


No Ghost is a psychological horror novel which follows the journey of an unnamed man as he abandons his established life in society and acts on internal resentment against human civilization and beliefs.


NG alternates between third and first person perspectives. This combination is utilized specifically to immerse the reader in the protagonist’s perspective.


Among the many themes touched upon in NG include death, identity, humanity, misanthropy, society, superficiality, nihilism, murder, mass murder, suicide, violence, torture, depression, social alienation, family, friendship, isolation, human value, ethics, morality, religion, fetishism, sexuality, commonality, social inequality, forgiveness, familial estrangement, social expectations, nostalgia, recovery, reintegration, moral insecurity, bullying, human sanctity of life, transformation, annihilation.


The purpose of NG is to establish a narrative depicting nihilistic aspects of life through a human. It compares the differences between human-established inherency and the neutral natural existence outside created morality and ethics. Each chapter addresses an aspect of life and strips it of conventional beliefs fostered for them in light of their comparison to the natural world. More importantly, rather than only elaborating postulations, NG  presents a narrative depiction of a man’s self-initiated journey away from society to embrace his destructive nature. The man understands what is before him, yet despite abhorring being a human, still holds human qualities throughout his transformation.


If you foster an interest in psychological horror/transgressive fiction, No Ghost is for you.




Thank you for your time.

We walked en masse to Dunn Meadow through the freshly fallen eight inches of snow to where we had all met before the shanties had all been burned over the last few months. We built a huge snowman, and he turned out to be Black! Yes, we had built him on the ashes of Shantytown, the student protest of IU's investments in the Apartheid regime of South Africa.

The Dance of Death by Hans Holbein

Hans Holbein's Dance of Death redefined the death emblem books, offering a framework for artists afterwards to emulate (and they did!). There are forty-one plates in the original 1538 edition, all reproduced here at 4.5" by 6" in size, and including the original title in English, the German text accompanying each image, as well as a Latin verse. These are followed by the original Dance of Death Alphabet, an initial caps set.


All the images in this book have been scanned from the original 1538 edition and digitally cleaned up for reproduction.


This is one of many world-famous books from centuries ago that Devoted Friends of God is working on bringing into the 21st century, by scanning and digitally cleaning up for a new generation to enjoy!

I write self help ebooks for those wanting to migrate from being a Windows user to becoming a full fledged Linux user.

This book is a journal of my complete and full conversion to using Linux Mint 17 exclusively over a period of one year. Fully illustrated with 193 chapters. Written from the perspective of a Windows user gone cold turkey this book intends to answer all of the common questions you would have after migrating to Linux. Everything from handling hard drives, installing the OS, updates, installing the best video driver, elevating privileges, and how to install software. Plus matters of comfort like Watching TV, Netflix, Shockwave Flash, and video editing. Advanced issues like viewing hardware, checking for bad blocks, and full and fast drive encryption and secure deletion. There is something for everyone in this book. Many of the procedures in this book are pure gems. Some took as long as 6 months to develop. Many of them you will never find anywhere else. Here in lies one year of pure pain, now you go enjoy a painless migration to Linux. Sincerely, Roger

A Short Course In Scrying By Katherine McGowan

by kmcgowan on ‎03-10-2017 01:35 (66 Views)



The Easiest, Simplest, most effective way of summoning spirits to visible appearance using a Dark Mirror (or "Speculum"). Most seers prefer to use a black mirror. Because this is difficult to buy you may have to make one. The Book teaches you how to. The use of black mirrors may be traced back over the centuries. John Dee used a black mirror of obsidian. With little time and practise you will be able to see scried images like still photographs or moving film images. Spirits may sometimes look at the scryer, talk to the scryer or even touch the scryer.

Winner, 2010 EPIC Ebook Award for fiction in the Mainstream category.


"Breathtakingly gorgeous writing … a multi-layered tale of such depth, breadth and insight that it was very nearly a spiritual experience…" --from a review by T. T. Thomas on Amazon.com


"…reminds me of Le Guin, of Cecelia Holland, and something of Rosemary Sutcliff… It made me feel as I did when I was a child reading authors like those… Once again I was in a magical place…" --from a review by Charles Ferguson on Amazon.com


"…there’s no ring of power or glowing sword of specialness; the magic, like the tone of the book, is quiet. It feels real." --from a blog review on livejournal


When she was a child, the author of When Women Were Warriors happily identified with all the male heroes she read about in stories that began, "Once upon a time, a young man went out to seek his fortune." But she would have been delighted to discover even one story like that with a female protagonist. Since she never did find the story she was looking for all those years ago, she decided to write it.


In Book I of the trilogy, Tamras arrives in Merin’s house to begin her apprenticeship as a warrior, but her small stature causes many, including Tamras herself, to doubt that she will ever become a competent swordswoman. To make matters worse, the Lady Merin assigns her the position of companion, little more than a personal servant, to a woman who came to Merin’s house, seemingly out of nowhere, the previous winter, and this stranger wants nothing to do with Tamras.


"…Both men and women of all persuasions seem to love these books... Very rare. Bravo, Bravo, Bravo!" --from a review by T. T. Thomas on Amazon.com

Soon the band is enchanting crowds, and Jason is a step closer to the girl he likes, but the new gear is brimming with destructive magic they can't control.
