But neither of these superhuman warriors is prepared for the strange and harrowing world of mortal life, and The Thing That Cries in the Night may well destroy not only their worlds, but all mankind.

☯ Full Synopsis : "Imagine a distant world where gods walk as men, but wield vast and hidden powers. Here they have made the stage on which they build a subtle pattern of alliance, love, and deadly enmity. Are they truly immortal? Who are these gods who rule the destiny of a teeming world? Their names include Brahma, Kali, Krishna and also he who was called Buddha, the Lord of Light, but who now prefers to be known simply as Sam. The gradual unfolding of the story -- how the colonization of another planet became a re-enactment of Eastern mythology -- is one of the great imaginative feats of modern science fiction."Article| Roger Zelazny| Statement ..."

♥ Book Title : Beyond Light and Dark
☯ Full Synopsis : "This beautiful book gives you a glimpse of the deep sense of supreme reality that underlies our daily living, unites us all as collective travelers through this journey (of life) in which we have the power to modify reality at every moment. Claudia Torres, writer, Matehuala, S.L.P., Mexico Beyond Light and Dark fascinates and engages me, but in a few short pages, it dragged me into the present moment causing me to forego all the wise and insightful comments I might otherwise have made about it. Dan Crow, attorney, Austin, Texas Michael Osborne speaks and writes in such an easy fashion, anybody should be able to grasp these concepts of understanding and these particular messages that are imparted.... these truths that seem evident. Anyone who is reading this book should be able to understand experientially at least something that he's talking about. They will have had that experience at some point in time and they will be able to identify this as truth. Calling on the commonalities of everyday living, everyday life, he takes everyday experiences and allows for wisdom to flow through. Thus, he gives the reader a greater understanding of the most simplistic things that we habitually do. Beyond Light and Dark shows us the mystery of the patterns that we have created, and it helps us unravel them."

♥ Book Title : Life in the Dark
☯ Full Synopsis : "Deep inside caves, at the bottoms of oceans and lakes, beneath the ground: these concealed habitats are absent of sunlight. This strange and fascinating world of complete darkness is not a solitary place—it is inhabited by millions of life forms. Yet most humans—creatures of daylight—have never seen any of them. Until now. In this fascinating—sometimes eerie—book, extreme wildlife photographer and scientist Danté Fenolio brings the denizens of these shadowy haunts into focus. Life in the Dark shows us the many ways in which life forms have adapted to lightless environments, including refinements of senses, evolution of unique body parts, and illumination using "biological flashlights." With more than 200 mesmerizing color photographs, Life in the Dark unveils bizarre creatures like the firefly squid, the giant Amazonian catfish, the Chinese cavefish, and even the human bot fly, which lives in the darkness beneath its host’s skin. Fenolio’s rich and vibrant images shed new light on the world’s fascinating creatures of darkness."Article| Danté Fenolio| Statement ..."
