One Last Flight: Book One Of The Holy Terran Empire
Gaelic of Arkum is an outlaw, a smuggler more at home on his ship the Strumpet, than he is on any of the thousand worlds of civilized space. Gaelic of Arkum is an ex-junkie, a former fighter pilot and a traitor to the Federation of Free Planets which he once served. An escaped prisoner wanted dead or alive by two galactic super powers, Gaelic hides behind an assumed identity while scratching a living for himself working for a ruthless warlord.And Gaelic of Arkum is dying, entering the end stage of the always terminal Transuranic Cancer.All he wants to do with the little time left him is to drop off his last load, get paid and hole up in his favorite cat house for a week before shoving off into space again for his rendezvous with oblivion. The last thing Gaelic wants to do is revisit his sordid past. But that long-buried past comes a-knocking anyway, stripping away his alias, exposing his true self and luring him back to the source of all his miseries.The revelation propels Gaelic down a harrowing path in search of the only woman he has ever loved, the only woman he hates; the lover who abandoned him to humiliation and slavery. Along the way, Gaelic must contend with former comrades of the Federation Forces who would see him hanged for treason, homicidal AIs of the Psion Collective and the Imperial Knights Templar, whose zeal for their Faith and their Holy Terran Empire threatens to consume him in the first fires of an intergalactic war.It’s all enough to make Gaelic of Arkum wonder who he has to kill to be able to die in peace.One Last Flight is the first installment in a new and exciting Space Opera Series. It is a thrilling tale of Adventure, Love and Redemption in the shadow of War!Click Here

This book celebrates Carlos Almaraz, one of the most influential Los Angeles artists of the 1970s and 1980s. Playing with Fire: Paintings by Carlos Almaraz is the first full length monograph devoted to an artist known for both his politically engaged cultural production as well as his vibrant, highly sought-after studio art, particularly his scenes of car crashes and pastoral depictions of L.A.’s Echo Park. Among the leading figures whose artistic, cultural, and political motivations catalyzed the Chicano Art movement in the 1970s, Almaraz began his career with works for the United Farm Workers and cofounded the important artists collective Los Four. Although he saw himself as an activist, Almaraz straddled multiple—and often contradictory—identities that drew from divergent cultures and approaches, and his work became less overtly political and more personal, psychological, dreamlike, and even mystical as he evolved artistically. The book features more than 60 works, mostly from the late 1970s through 1989, the year of the artist’s untimely death at age 48, as well as selections from his journals and recollections from numerous colleagues and friends who knew him throughout his career.Click Here

$29.76El Cerrador: Mi vida
The greatest relief pitcher of all time shares his extraordinary story of survival, love, and baseball.
Mariano Rivera, the man who intimidated thousands of batters merely by opening a bullpen door, began his incredible journey as the son of a poor Panamanian fisherman. When first scouted by the Yankees, he didn't even own his own glove. He thought he might make a good mechanic. When discovered, he had never flown in an airplane, had never heard of Babe Ruth, spoke no English, and couldn't imagine Tampa, the city where he was headed to begin a career that would become one of baseball's most iconic. What he did know: that he loved his family and his then girlfriend, Clara, that he could trust in the Lord to guide him, and that he could throw a baseball exactly where he wanted to, every time.
With astonishing candor, Rivera tells the story of the championships, the bosses (including The Boss), the rivalries, and the struggles of being a Latino baseball player in the United States and of maintaining Christian values in professional athletics. The 13-time All-Star discusses his drive to win; the secrets behind his legendary composure; the story of how he discovered his cut fastball; the untold, pitch-by-pitch account of the ninth inning of Game 7 in the 2001 World Series; and why the lowest moment of his career became one of his greatest blessings.
In The Closer, Rivera takes listeners into the Yankee clubhouse, where his teammates are his brothers. But he also takes us on that jog from the bullpen to the mound, where the game - or the season - rests squarely on his shoulders. We come to understand the laserlike focus that is his hallmark, and how his faith and his family kept his feet firmly on the pitching rubber.

The Search Fore Winter is a journey into one man's past. This book joins Carlos as he travels to and then explores his last three lifetimes on this planet. These events are triggered by a reoccurring nightmare the author experienced as a child. When Carlos tries to find out the meaning of his childhood dream he opens up a Pandora's Box that eventually will lead to his death and you have to hate when that happens to you! This event forces the author to explore his past and his attitude toward his life as well as his indifference toward our Great Spirit Father. The book then watches as Carlos begins his search for redemption and his possible return to the loving and merciful embrace of our Spirit Father, a father who had watched Carlos stumble in the dark tunnel that he had assumed was his life, a father who had heard his son curse his name as he fell over and over again in that tunnel and finally a Father who had waited and hoped for the day when Carlos would drop his "bad attitude" and realize that his Life and the trials and tribulations that had been brought upon him in his present lifetime was not his Father's fault but his own and caused by his prior actions in the lifetimes he had lived before his birth (this time around). How all this unfolds is the story contained in this book. Carlos' self-assessment concerning his own shortcomings is brutally honest and threatening to all who read. We can all see ourselves in the words the author writes about himself and in the end, hopefully we shall also be able to share in the many lessons and insights the author realizes as he travels from here to there, from present to past. Will Carlos find the Courage to turn the "Key" that lies within us all? A Key that opens the Door to the Valley of Dreams and the possibilities offered by The Campfire of Memories Past. Only by reading will you be able to find the above answers. One thing Fore sure is: The Search Fore Winter is not your ordinary read. It is part diary, part self-help book, part history and part adventure to the far off great beyond. Carlos, like usual, ends up in Hell and why shouldn't he? He killed his father in 1893 because his "Pa" simply wanted to bury his horse but that is a Story Fore Chapter Zero which is the book's ending at "her beginning". In the end, a single lifetime might not be fair but one's Existence over many many lifetimes will be fair. Like cream you either rise to the top or you don't but always remember the Great Father will kill the fatted calf for the return of a single sheep. He will kill the fatted calf Fore your return! It is never too late to return to His loving embrace. You only have to knock and the door shall be opened. Follow the author as he opens those doors. Experience the butchery of the American Civil War during the Battle of Cold Harbor in 1864. Relive the author's death on the beaches of the South Pacific during World War Two. Witness how Carlos' Soul as Frank with the help of The Bay Horse gathers the courage to escape Hell and Satan's unyielding grasp over him by finally accepting our Father's invitation to join him as Joseph on the other side of Hell's border, The River of Fire. Meet Big Red, an alligator killed in the 1840's who will haunt all whom he meets. When Big Red learns how to forgive his murderers the Vortex of Fire at the Campfire of Memories Past shall yield him his reward. Sound confusing...maybe but in the end everything worth having must be earned and after reading this journey, no one should ever be the same. Plus from what I understand, The book has a very Happy Ending. The Search Fore Winter is the first book in a four part series. It has an easy to read layout and one of kind formatting and also over 50 illustrations because books are lot better with pictures! So even if you don't believe in reincarnation this book is worth the ride because it is one "hell" of an adventure and in Big Red's own words' "That is the Stank you can take to the Bank!"Click Here

$17.99LOS CUBANOS EN ANGOLA: Bases para el estudio de una guerra olvidada (1975-1990) (Spanish Edition)
El prestigioso intelectual, escritor y diplomático boliviano Carlos Antonio Carrasco F. nos brinda la traducción de su obra “LOS CUBANOS EN ANGOLA (1975-990)” (Bases para el estudio de una guerra olvidada), cuyo título original en francés es de “L’intervention étrangère dans la guerre angolaise: l’expérience cubaine” (INALCO, París, 1996). El título en francés es más explícito acerca del contenido de su libro actual. A través de su apasionante lectura podemos concluir que en Angola tuvimos un campo de experiencias de la guerra fría, donde se pusieron en evidencia y franco enfrentamiento la Doctrina Brezhnev, de la ocupación irreversible de avanzadas comunistas en el mundo, y la Doctrina Reagan, de que al expansionismo soviético no sólo había que detenerlo sino derrotarlo, para lo cual los Estados Unidos usaron una doble arma: la ideológica promoviendo los valores democráticos aún en países de estructuras capitalistas como fueron los casos de Filipinas y de Chile para citar dos extremos geográficos y otra práctica de ayuda militar y económica abierta a las facciones opuestas al avance y consolidación del comunismo, como en Nicaragua y Afganistán.Click Here
