In the Sierra Madre Mountains of Northern Mexico, isolated from the chaos of the Mexican Revolution, lived a peaceful, indigenous people known as the Tarahumara. There, away from civilization, 16-year-old Suré fell in love with a Jesuit missionary priest, Leandro. Their love convinces him to leave the priesthood and begin a family in the “civilized” world. The aftermath of the Mexican Revolution leads the romantic couple to be victimized by machismo and drunken savagery, forcing Suré into a twenty-year journey to overcome discrimination and violence. Inspired by the 2014 immigration crisis of unaccompanied minors into the U.S., Praying for an Eclipse is a trilogy of historical fiction that follows the family saga of Suré and her descendants over five generations. Book One, Mother Moon, narrates the traumatic rift that separates Suré from her family, creating and emotional and psychological divide that will mark the lives of her descendants in the following books.
Nella Provenza del XVI secolo, mentre le truppe del Papa perseguitano e massacrano i valdesi, qualcuno uccide e fa a pezzi fanciulle innocenti, strappando loro il fegato. Quale macabro segreto si cela dietro questi inspiegabili delitti? Chi ne è il responsabile? E perché mai Dio divide anziché unire? Messer Dieu, chirurgo, filosofo e avventuriero, deve ricorrere a tutta la sua intelligenza, al suo intuito e al suo amore per l'umanità, ma pure alla scienza e alla propria coscienza, per smascherare l'assassino e giungere alla verità. Lungo la sua tormentata indagine incontrerà santi, inquisitori, criminali, dannati...
e una giovane donna dagli occhi verdi che conquisterà per sempre il suo cuore.
The CRPG Book Project is a collaborative, nonprofit project created to compile the history of Computer Role-Playing Games into an accessible and educative volume. The book was written by volunteers from all continents, ages and walks of life: developers, journalists, modders, critics, scholars and fans, but also parents, couples, grandfathers, doctors, teachers, engineers, businessmen, etc. The purpose of the project is to spread our passion for this great genre, sharing knowledge that is currently scattered across count forums, magazines, websites and minds. The book covers CRPGs from 1975 to 2015, plus contains several articles, mod recommendations, developer quotes and interesting trivia, in an effort to create a guide that will have something to offer to old-school veterans and new players alike.

This is the year 2001, but 23 years ago in 1978 in a Texas prison something happened that no one outside the prison knew anything about. In October 1978, the Texas Department of Corrections (TDC) Director, W.
J. Estelle, imposed a News Blackout (a form of media censorship) on the TDC Department of Operations concerning a prisoner riot at one of the TDC units that included hundreds of inmates and which resulted in many injuries to the prisoners. The State of Texas never released any information on the casualties and never really admitted anything ever happened. Charles Cofield the author, survived the 14-hour prisoner riot in October 1978 at the TDC in which a news blackout (a form of media censorship) was imposed. The author of this book relates the true story of what really happened during this prison riot, and which has never been told to the public. Charles Cofield has many things to say concerning whether convicts can be rehabilitated inside a prison. The author says, "The prison as I knew it will not rehabilitate anyone; those who succeed, rehabilitate themselves; they do it in spite of the prison." The author spent four years doing hard time in prison and is one of the very few inmates of such prisons who successfully turned around his life on his own.
