DESCRIPTION:

What if the South Had Won the Civil War?The landmark alternate history novel by “one of the best American writers” (Ray Bradbury).

In the world of this novel, said to be an inspiration for Philip K. Dick’s The Man in the High Castle, the Confederacy has triumphed and become an imperialist nation. What is left of the United States has been drained of its resources and is trapped in a depression. Hodge, a young man living in a village in rural New York with his parents, decides to head to the city to escape his otherwise inevitable future of poverty and indentured servitude.

But the specter of war between the Confederacy and the other great global power, the German Union, haunts the entire region, and a nationalist terrorist group has other plans for Hodge. Before long, he is swept up in the politics of the day and becomes involved with a beautiful physicist who is working on a machine intended to change his fate–and the fate of the world.

Long before Harry Turtledove’s The Guns of the South, Bring the Jubilee was the first novel to pose the question “What if the South had won the Civil War?” A counterfactual classic, it was included in renowned science fiction editor David Pringle’s list of the 100 Best Science Fiction Novels.

This ebook features an illustrated biography of Ward Moore including rare images from the author’s estate.

DESCRIPTION:

When a professor and his team of college students explore the basement of an old burned-out church, they discover some startling artifacts, including a leather pouch filled with silver Roman coins from the time of Jesus Christ–thirty silver coins, in fact.

But when the professor is unable to continue the research, the students wonder if they are the same coins paid to Judas Iscariot for the capture of Jesus. The first squabble between the students begins when Robert wants to sell the coins, and Sheila argues that they belong to the church or should be in a museum.

The other students also disagree about what to do with the coins. It soon becomes clear that bad things happen to anyone who handles the coins–or separates one coin from the others. When several of the coins go missing from the leather pouch, the students fall prey to the coins’ curse of greed–and worse–that seems to befall whoever touches them. Or covets them.

As the evil power of the coins courses through them, someone flees with the pouch of the remaining coins. As the competition heats up for recovery and possession of the cursed coins, all hell breaks loose when they rush to intercept the thief before the coins are lost. Forever.

The clock is ticking on the recovery of the cursed coins in this suspenseful, fast-paced standalone adventure thriller, which springs from the Biblical account of the thirty pieces of silver that Judas Iscariot received for the betrayal of Jesus Christ.

But even if they recover the coins before it’s too late, what if they, too, succumb to the temptation of the cursed coins of Judas? And, will it be their last temptation?

DESCRIPTION:

It is high summer in 1872. Farmers toil in the sweltering heat to harvest what promises to be a bumper crop. They work six days a week, sometimes sixteen hours a day. Wives and children participate in the intense labor. On Sunday, they feed their livestock, themselves, and then attend church. On June, 23, their reliable routine is shattered.

The bones of this story are true. It was inherited from the author’s father whose grandparents, Fred and Kate, were next-door neighbors to a thirteen-year-old girl named Mary. The decisions they participate in are destined to soak through four generations.

Old Phil reflects on the happenings from his room in The Golden Meadows Home nearly sixty years later: “The whole world’s been operatin’ fer too long on ‘bite and be bitten in return.’–Duck Legs Phil.

What kinds of animal behavior will these civilized individuals resort to to survive? What effect will gas lighting have on Duck Legs Phil? What is the legal role of Judge Lynch? How deep are the effects of karma?

Jack survived the first Gulf War, Bosnia, and his time as a UN Peacekeeper. As a captain and tank commander, he saw the dark side of war. Skilled in language, he speaks Russian, German, French, and Bosnian. That’s why they sent him.

Two UN Officials had gone missing.

DESCRIPTION:

George Gershwin thinks he could do better, better than Broadway.

Ira Gershwin disagrees, why get funny ideas about writing po-faced Piano Concertos that no one hears, when you’re already getting much respect and much money (and much female attention) from writing hit shows? But what George wants George gets, and soon the brothers are travelling to Europe to meet French maestro Maurice Ravel – you know, a real composer.

Despite dreading this American invasion on his artistic privacy, the haughty Ravel warms to George, the two men share musical ideas and beaucoup du vin. It all turns sour when George returns to New York, unintentionally carrying in his luggage Ravel’s most treasured possession: a pair of slippers that belonged to Ravel’s musical forefather, the French national hero – Claude Debussy.

Now, Debussy’s slippers may reek, they may look slightly ridiculous, but their inspirational power is undeniable. Once George feels their effect, he’s loath to return them, and sets about stalling an increasingly irate Ravel. Things come to a head when Ravel unexpectedly returns Gershwin’s visit.
