ABOUT ALAN ROSE

The author took his first degree in chemistry at the end of the second world war. He then developed an interest in biochemistry, and after working in research biochemistry, was advised to go and take a degree in medicine, which he completed in 1954. After two Hospital house jobs, he spent his remaining career years in clinical research, studying at different times inborn errors of metabolism, metabolic bone diseases such as osteoporosis, vitamin D resistant rickets and hyperparathyroidism. Finally he did a lot of work on formation and prevention of renal stones. He wrote some 200 or more original papers and in the last 10 years before retirement travelled the world as an invited speaker at many conferences. After retirement from the NHS in 1990, he expected a quiet life, but it was not to be. After 3 enjoyable months as visiting professor in the Sultanate of Oman , he met up with one of his former research biochemists who asked him to join in opening the London Gender Clinic. This proved to be the most controversial matter he had ever undertaken and forms the basis of part one of this book. In addition, his medicolegal work as expert witness in drink-driving matters, expanded enormously, and this work forms the basis of part two of this volume.

Gods of War by Storm Kesocascay Book Blitz - Win a $25 Amazon Gift Card!

 

ABOUT GODS OF WAR

Title: Gods of War
Genre: YA/Action Adventure
Author: Storm Kesocascay
Publisher: iUniverse
Pages: 112
Language: English
Format: Ebook

 A long time ago, an ancient god sought to pool the powers of his brethren in order to create beauty out of chaos. He created the Divine Covenants, or Accords, which bound the gods’ powers together. They could have lived forever, peaceably and surrounded by paradise. However, one ancient god soon used the pooled powers for evil and was banished by his own son to eternal confinement. Years later, in 1882 Atlantis Time, the continents still exist in the form of Pangaea—one huge, connected continent. The son who once banished his own father still lives as the god of war. His name is Arylos, and he has forgotten about his confined family foe—until he witnesses a suspicious murder in the midst of dreams. The murder turns out to be fact; someone has conjured Arylos’s father and died in the process. Now, Aryas is back. He longs for power and revenge, against both his son and all of human kind. With the help of his Black Dog soldiers, Arylos must find a way to return his father to the grave. But does he have the strength to condemn his own father twice? The fate of Atlantis and all of reality is in Arylos’s hands, for if Pangea falls, so will reality, sucked into the dark madness of one power-hungry immortal.

Against her better judgment, she decides to marry Charles Lafferty, the wealthy son of a silk baron. Charles is stable, dependable, and safe. So why does she continue to think about the dashing Ravelli? Eleanor carries her own secret past, and this secret robs her of any happiness as she struggles to look to the future and find fulfilling love with her husband.

My Racial Group's Purpose on Earth by Franklin Gibbs Book Blitz - Win a $25 Amazon Gift Card!


ABOUT MY RACIAL GROUP'S PURPOSE ON EARTH

Title: My Racial Group's Purpose on Earth
Genre: Spirituality/Religion
Author: Franklin Gibbs
Publisher: iUniverse
Pages: 236
Language: English
Format: Ebook

We spend a lot of time in determining our individual purposes (i.e., our callings) for being here on earth. Some of us were called (created) to be singers, dancers, preachers, teachers, helpers, exhorters, prophets and so on. This is fine. But, this book goes beyond our individual purpose (calling) and delves deeply into our racial group’s purpose (calling). That is, this book shows you the nuts and bolts of your racial group’s purpose here on earth. Each racial group on the face of the earth was created to fulfill a divine purpose. Thus, we need to know our racial group’s purpose so that we can serve God completely. Moreover, mixed children of color from interracial marriages are special to God. For they have a special purpose to fulfill on earth and in heaven. That said, this book shows why God created racial groups with different skin tones, nose sizes, lip shapes and hair textures. You’ll be amazed to see how pivotal cherubim (God’s special angels) are in determining our racial group’s purpose. God patterned their behavior after man’s expected behavior. So, this book studies their behavior patterns in detail to see what our racial groups are supposed to do. That said, for centuries racial groups have been bickering and clawing at one another. But, once we become aware of and start following our racial group’s purpose (as shown in this book), our racial problems will be solved- i.e., they’ll go away. In this book, you’ll enjoy to the fullest extent the ingenious purpose for which God created you and your racial group and the amazing treasures and benefits that He has in store for you and your racial group.

There Be Goblins in the Wood by Christopher Gray Book Blitz - Win a $25 Amazon Gift Card!


ABOUT THERE BE GOBLINS IN THE WOOD

Title: There Be Goblins in the Wood
Genre: Young Adult
Author: Christopher Gray
Publisher: AuthorHouse
Pages: 112
Language: English
Format: Ebook

 Combe Dingle Wood can be found (if you look really hard) in the heart of the Somerset countryside. It exists in that twilight time between myth and reality. It belongs to the era when walkabout scarecrows and Aunt Sallies wandered the hills and vales of the English West country. The local folk can tell you stories of their experiences when entering the wood. Most people that wander in wander out again with a smile on their faces and a sense of well-being. No one has ever quite put their finger on why this should be- they can only say there is something magical about the place. The Chronicles of Combe Dingle Wood are a series of stories about the unique folk that inhabit the wood. They have exciting adventures in ‘Between time’ (created for them by a friendly witch). They encounter dangers, but they do so with a sense of humour and fortitude that is typical of the West Country folk. It was a few years after the Second Year War when I first encountered the real inhabitants of Combe Dingle Wood. Were they people trees or tree people? You know to this day I am still not sure. Perhaps you could decide? The story books I have produced are based on the records and drawings I kept in my diary all those years ago.
