When THEN turns into NOW you have a BLASTED PAST Immerse yourself in this character-driven, intricately plotted, imaginative novel. This is hypnotic storytelling that will keep you busy 'turning pages.' Follow Jim Nagle, a man beset with more problems than any 54-year old investment executive could handle. His ex-wife had her lawyers on him, his estranged son was in jail, and the California State Franchise Board was chasing him for back taxes. It seemed that everyone was against him. The topper of it all was that his business was growing so fast he was mismanaging it. Then, in a single moment, less than a heartbeat, his life was changed forever. A freak accident thrust Nagle back 145 years in time. Could this be real? Did this really happen? Is it even possible? Time had just been ripped away from Nagle as he finds himself stranded in a small post-Civil War Texas town. The town was populated with tough as nails cowboys, gunfighters looking for a fight, drifters lost souls from the Civil War, hostile Indians and prostitutes, although they prefer the appellation of sporting ladies. These colorful characters were sprinkled among solid German immigrants, the citizens who founded this little town. Nagle eventually stopped denying the time travel element as he stood on its dusty streets. It was buried in the reality of having been transported to a small western town from the past. A life-long Catholic, over the years he´d slipped from grace with Mother Church, still a believer if not a practitioner. His being here could not have been an accident. It must be a part of God´s plan. He came to believe that only God could have brought him to this place. Nagle´s renewed faith convinces him that his Maker wants him in 1872 for a reason. But what is that purpose? Was he sent here to change history? What was significant about being put in this place at this time in antiquity? And while he waited for some understanding of his circumstances, he needed to develop new coping skills to exist in this primitive environment. The modern contrivances he always relied on hadn´t been invented yet. The talents he´d developed and relied on, were of no value. This was a whole new ballgame. In fact, he soon discovered that, as in the true old west, he would need integrity and grit along with some other specialized skills. And he was going to need them pretty darn quick—just to stay alive in this place. This is a rich, nuanced, character-driven tale that goes way beyond good versus evil. You will recognize these authentic characters and understand them right away. You will identify with Nagle´s confusion as that of a nice guy trying to do the right thing. But that effort causes him to make a lot of enemies, which reminds me of the lawman Gary Cooper played in High Noon . It proves that grit is a four-letter word. Danley´s lyrical page-turner of love, betrayal, revenge, and glory will make a great literary series that many of us will want to go on and on.

Chinese Rules: Five Timeless Lessons for Succeeding in China:ePub edition Tim Clissold
Benjamin Franklin´s writings have inspired millions throughout the years, and his advice on how to earn and save money is timeless. ´´The Way to Wealth´´ was an essay written by Benjamin Franklin in 1758. He was on a journey to England and resented the time wasted waiting for the ship to sail (it was anchored in New York for 2 weeks) that he began collecting adages and advice from 25 years worth of publication of Poor Richard´s Alamanac (Spelled Alamanack at the time). Because the poor man couldn´t afford books, he would spend his earnings on yearly almanacs filled with astrology, jokes, stories, and other works of amusement. In Poor Richard´s Alamanac, Franklin copied some of the more popular pieces of advice, slightly modified, and also included original works of his own
Beneath the gaze of the gods, the mighty armies of Greece and Troy met in fierce and glorious combat, scrupulously following the text set forth in Homer´s timeless narrative. But that was before twenty-first-century scholar Thomas Hockenberry stirred the bloody brew, causing an enraged Achilles to join forces with his archenemy Hector and turn his murderous wrath on Zeus and the entire pantheon of divine manipulators; before the swift and terrible mechanical creatures that catered for centuries to the pitiful idle remnants of Earth´s human race began massing in the millions, to exterminate rather than serve. And now all bets are off.
An effective, sophisticated and accurate piece of timeless narrative, a testimony of the individual truth that is always ingrained within the actual and social facts of history. Between the last days of the ´´Geniul din Carpati,´´ or Nicolae Ceausescu, and the years immediately following his famous execution by firing squad that was shown live on TV (25 December 1998), Romania fell into the uncertainty of a revolution that was never implemented in practice. Reflecting a society split between the desire for freedom and the latent immobility of an entire generation born of the backwardness of the Ceauseschian regime, is Nicu, a teacher living in Bucharest. Within the short span of a few months, Nicu finds himself unemployed and has to face the hardships of a job that is no longer there, money that is scarce, and food that is lacking. Mihail, a preadolescent boy of the underground, lives with his friend Barbie within the sewer system that cuts across the city. Always populated by a young humanity, the sewers of Bucharest form a jungle where the law of the strongest prevails, where one gets high sniffing Aurolac from plastic bags and in order to eat one prostitutes oneself in exchange for a handful of dollars. One day, on the snow-covered meadows of the Tineretului Park, that green space of Bucharest and the invisible wall of partition separating the good neighborhoods from the periphery, Nicu´s and Mihail´s stories cross.
