The aim of Forgotten Secrets of Natural Conception is to help women who are having trouble conceiving a child. Though analysis of true stories of conception, including her own, Pangrazzi takes the reader on a journey to show them how their mind affects their ability to conceive as well as the connection we all have with the universe. The book explores the fact that infertility appears to be on the rise, regardless of the scientific knowledge and information available about conception. By helping the reader to recognize the signs of fertility that our own bodies give us every month, rather than relying on expensive kits, this book aims to remind women that they are a part of their own body and to listen to their inner voices. By explaining how the subconscious mind works and how to dissolve inner blocks, Martina teaches the reader how to accept help and be more positive. Through various simple mental exercises she reveals how to replace damaging, detrimental thoughts (such as “I will never be able to have a baby”) with a more harmonious state of mind. The book also explores the concept that pregnancy is a highly spiritual matter, and that the whole universe is involved in creating each life. By understanding that like attracts like, readers are shown how to resolve the pressure and desperate longing for a baby. In addition to relaxation methods and positive affirmations presented throughout the chapters, Martina also discusses different natural healing methods that help with fertility and giving the reader a better understanding of what’s available out there—and “in” there—to help with conception concerns.

A devilishly intelligent new novel by the internationally bestselling author and Prix Médicis winner A black writer from Montreal has found the perfect title for his next book I Am a Japanese Writer. His publisher loves it and gives him an advance. The problem is, he can't seem to write a word of it. He nurses his writer's block by taking baths, re-reading the Japanese poet Basho and engaging in amorous intrigues with rising pop star Midori. The book, still unwritten, becomes a cult phenomenon in Japan, and the writer an international celebrity. A Japanese writer publishes a book called I Am a Malagasy Writer. Even the Japanese consulate is intrigued. Our hero is delighted--until things start to go wrong. Part postmodern fantasy, part Kafkaesque nightmare and part travelogue to the inner reaches of the self, I Am a Japanese Writer calls into question everything we think we know about what-and who-makes a work of art

DISCOVER THE SECRET PLACES THAT TIME FORGOT ''Dr. Bob Curran has given us a comprehensive encyclopedia of fantastic places straddling the nebulous borderlands between fact and fantasy.'' --Frank Joseph, author of Opening the Ark of the Covenant..... ''learned and erudite, yet written in an accessible and exceptionally read-able style, this book is invaluable for those interested in the mysteries of vanished civilizations.'' --Brian Haughton, author of Hidden History..... There are places that turn up in literature or in film--mystical and legendary places whose names may be familiar, but about which we know little. We nod knowingly at the reference, but are often left wondering about places such as Atlantis, the lost land overwhelmed by the sea, or El Dorado, the fabulous city that vanished somewhere in the South American jungles. Other names are more evocative--the Garden of Eden, the mystic Isle of Avalon, and Davy Jones's Locker. But did such places actually exist and, if so, where were they, and what really happened? What are the traditions and legends associated with them? In this fascinating book, historian Dr. Bob Curran sets or to find the answers by journeying to the far-flung corners of the world and to the outer reaches of human imagination. Inside you will: Climb the high mountains in search of the mythical Shangri-La. Navigate the deep swamps and jungles in a quest for the Seven Cities of Gold. Travel to the depths of the dark oceans to look for sunken lands such as Lemuria and Lyonesse. Experience unspeakable danger in a realm rarely visited by men--the subterranean lair of Judaculla. Uncover the secrets of Heliopolis, Yggradsil, Hy-Brasil, the Kingdom of Prester John, and the Hollow Hills. Filled with lavish illustrations by acclaimed artist Ian Daniels, Lost Lands, Forgotten Realms takes you on a wonderful and sometimes terrifying journey combining mythological and legendary tales with historical fact. Psychologist and historian Dr. Bob Curran has traveled the world in the study of mythology and folklore, which he has also extensively written and lectured about. He is the author of Vampires, encyclopedia of the Undead, Celtic Lore and Legend, and Walking With the Green Man. He lives in Northern Ireland with his wife and family. Ian Daniels has illustrated book covers for Marion Zimmer Bradley, Orson Scott Card, and Poul Anderson.

The Girl Who Sang to the Buffalo

A haunting dream that will not relent pulls author Kent Nerburn back into the hidden world of Native America, where dreams have meaning, animals are teachers, and the “old ones” still have powers beyond our understanding. In this moving narrative, we travel through the lands of the Lakota and the Ojibwe, where we encounter a strange little girl with an unnerving connection to the past, a forgotten asylum that history has tried to hide, and the complex, unforgettable characters we have come to know from Neither Wolf nor Dog and The Wolf at Twilight. Part history, part mystery, part spiritual journey and teaching story, The Girl Who Sang to the Buffalo is filled with the profound insight into humanity and Native American culture we have come to expect from Nerburn’s journeys. As the American Indian College Fund has stated, once you have encountered Nerburn’s stirring evocations of America’s high plains and incisive insights into the human heart, “you can never look at the world, or at people, the same way again.”

Chemical Warfare Secrets Almost Forgotten

Chemical warfare watchers, from scientists to policy advocates, often wonder what went on at the Army Chemical Center during the 1960s. It was a decade in which thousands of Army enlisted men served as volunteers for the secret testing of chemical agents. The actual historical record, however, has until now remained disturbingly incomplete. What chemicals was the Army studying? Why was the program never fully documented in books available to the public? Who planned and carried out the tests, and what was their purpose? How, and by whom, were the volunteers recruited? How adequately were they instructed before giving their informed consent? What long range effects, if any, have been found in follow-up studies? Written by the physician who played a pivotal role in psychoactive drug testing of hundreds of volunteers, the story breaks an official silence that has lasted almost fifty years. Dr. James Ketchum may be the only scientist still equal to the task. His book goes a long way toward revealing the contents of once classified documents that still reside in restricted archives. The author spent most of a decade testing over a dozen potential incapacitating agents including LSD, BZ and marijuana derivatives. His 380-page narrative, loaded with both old and recent photographs, derives from technical reports, memoranda, films, notes and memories. Written primarily for the general reader, but supplemented by a voluminous appendix of graphs and tables for the technically inclined, Dr. Ketchum's book combines a subjective diary with an objective report of the external events that shaped and eventually terminated the program. Informal and autobiographical in style, it includes numerous amusing anecdotes and personality portraits that make it simultaneously intriguing and informative.
