Horror and suspense are not new topics in classic literature. While many are familiar with titles such as Bram Stoker's Dracula, Mary Shelley's Frankenstein, and the stories and poetry of Edgar Allan Poe, there is a plethora of older and lesser known tales of terror. These short stories (and some poems) contain all of the elements that are still popular with modern horror and suspense: vampires, ghosts, killers, and the supernatural.
A comprehensive, condensed volume of quotes by atheists, agnostics, freethinkers, skeptics, philosophers, and even the spiritual. Not exhaustive, but a great quick A-to-Z reference of quotes by atheists, freethinkers, and philosophers - almost a greatest hits, if you will. Some quotes are very anti-theist in nature while others lean more political or non-religious. There are even a few appalling quotes by the religious.
This candid autobiography of Steve Dustcircle's is focused mostly on his deconversion over the years, what led him to leaving Christianity, and the problems within religion itself. Told in narration style, he tells of the contradictions in the Bible, the errors of the Christian church, and how the people within religion could see things differently.

Many Americans call themselves Christians, and say that America is a Christian nation. This book takes the Christian's own text - the Bible - and turns it against them, showing U.S. Christians that if America were indeed a "Christian nation," the evidence isn't there. Steve Dustcircle attacks the theocratic mentality point by point, using everything from the early Jewish civilization to the early Church, and uses that as a mirror against the ways America acts and thinks politically, spiritually, and intellectually.
In what is supposed to be a quick, direct delivery from one state to another, a county jail inmate is taken all over the Midwest in a cramped van with a bunch of guys he has nothing in common with but for two things: They're all facing fugitive charges, and they're all a little bit normal, actually, though they come from all backgrounds and parts of the Midwest. A tale that is hard, funny, and reflective.
A lot of people are not happy with politics. In many family gatherings, politics (and religion) are often frowned upon during conversation, and is usually the cause of much heated debate, incensed arguments, and possible disfellowshiping. But even if the topic of politics is taboo, we all agree that it's an important part of our every day lives. Everything we do, everything we buy, everything we wish to avoid has to do with politics.
To a lot of people, political elections are like sports events, and they root for their favorite team. There are teams - or parties - that sometimes have the upper hand or home-court advantage. In some cities, the underdog will win, and in some elections, people will root for the party that has no chance but are loved anyway. It's easy when you're younger to want to change the channel on the TV when debates, speeches, or election commercials are on, but don't be turned off by the boring clothing.
