A Peculiar Treasure: The Enduring Legacy of Herbert & Loma Armstrong

by Jon W Brisby

A woman's personal conviction to begin keeping the seventh-day Sabbath in 1926 would challenge her husband to begin an intensive study to prove her wrong. That study would spawn a new religious movement under Herbert W. Armstrong. A fledgling group would form in 1934, and an audacious media operation would make the Radio Church of God (later named the Worldwide Church of God) grow by 30% per year over the next 35 years. Proclaiming a unique understanding of the Bible, traditional Christian orthodoxy would be challenged, making that church most peculiar indeed. Internal and external forces would alter Herbert Armstrong's view of his own mission, and especially after Loma's death, doctrinal and administrative turmoil would stagger the church for the rest of his life. After his death in 1986,...

The Zodiac Killer Map: Part of the Zodiac Killer Enigma

by R.S. Clemons

Some time ago, I discovered something that no one had ever seen before about the Zodiac Killer and his so called "codes". Some of you may be asking, "Who or what was the Zodiac Killer?" No one really knows for sure and I have to be honest, I have days when I wish I had never heard the name. It's been quite a journey. In the late 1960's and early 1970's, an unknown person, a mad man, committed a string of murders across the bay area of San Francisco & Northern California. These are not the only places he was known to have operated in and in all probability he hunted across the entire country, but this the area he is most famous for. Claiming large numbers of victims, only he knows how many lives he took over the course of his life, and he could very well still be at work. Calling himself Zo...

Irish Shorts: Nora's Escape and other true stories of love, loss and resistance

by Maria Hall

Six true stories from an Irish Catholic family caught in the iron grip of a changing world. Told with unvarnished honesty, dry humour and a good dose of drama, we meet a young girl as she escapes her oppressive father to start life anew in the wilds of New Zealand. We see a family’s Christian values tested upon discovering their house broken into, and the culprit lurking close by. The decades pass, and world wars turn into religious ones as author Maria Hall travels to bomb-blasted Belfast in search of her heritage and connection to one of Ireland’s most famous artists. But is their family hero the man they thought him to be? These are just some of the treasures revealed by Hall as she picks through family legend and fact to uncover tales of resistance, love and survival across three a...

The Mad, Bad and Dangerous - Volume 1

by Edward Butts

The Mad, Bad and Dangerous: Volume I, is a collection of true stories about murders committed by men from widely differing backgrounds. One was the spoiled, eccentric son of wealthy parents. At the opposite end of the social spectrum was an impetuous rural youth who was a petty thief, obsessed with the power of a gun. The suspect in the massacre of almost an entire family was a farm boy with a history of mental illness. Another youth with a disturbing past stalked young women. A band of criminal brothers made a cold, calculating decision to permanently silence a witness. These men were separated by time and place, but had one thing in common. They were killers!...

Harun al-Rashid: The Life and Legacy of the Abbasid Caliph during the Islamic Golden Age

by Charles River Editors

*Includes pictures*Includes medieval accounts*Includes online resources and a bibliography for further reading*Includes a table of contentsLike many historical figures, Harun al-Rashid’s biography has become part reality and part myth. A real individual and the fourth caliph of the Abbasid Caliphate, Harun al-Rashid is best known to many individuals because of his role in famous literature like One Thousand and One Nights, not necessarily because of his policy decisions. This is unusual because Harun al-Rashid was perhaps the most influential of the Abbasid caliphs due to his role in bringing economic prosperity, destroying one of the most powerful Islamic families of the 9th century CE, and ending the Abbasid Dynasty for good.The reputation of Harun al-Rashid is a controversial one over...

Dear Anxiety is at once a deep...

The Nepali Flat

by Gordon Alexander

Join Gordon Alexander in Nepal as he drags his ‘heavy arse’ over the Himalayas in this hilarious, adventure-soaked account of the Three Passes Trek, culminating in a visit to Everest Base Camp. The Nepali Flat, littered with Aussie slang (and explanations) and topped off with a dry sense of humour, is your ideal travel companion, or if you’re just looking for a bloody good yarn.

Together with guide Subash and porter Nima, Gordon tackles high passes in excess of 5400 metres (17700ft) and explains how high altitude affects a mildly-overweight road builder from sea level in the tropics. Each part of the journey brings new challenges including sub-freezing temperatures, almost falling into a crevasse, and alarmingly warm beer. Along the way he discovers the local Kukri Rum, ...

Pablo Escobar: The Life and Crimes of the World’s Most Notorious Narco

Colombian drug lord Pablo Escobar's ambition and ruthlessness made him one of the wealthiest, most powerful and most violent criminals of all time.Pablo Escobar, born on December 1, 1949, in Antioquia, Colombia, entered the cocaine trade in the early 1970s.

Alcatraz: The Surprising History of America's Most Notorious Prison

by Patrick Auerbach

The federal prison on Alcatraz Island in the chilly waters of California’s San Francisco Bay housed some of America’s most difficult and dangerous prisoners during its years of operation from 1934 to 1963. Among those who served time at the maximum-security facility were the notorious gangster Al “Scarface” Capone (1899-1947) and murderer Robert “Birdman of Alcatraz” Stroud (1890-1963).

When prisoners boarded the boat for Alcatraz, they knew that they had reached the end of the line. Not only was this the toughest of all Federal penitentiaries, but it was also said to be virtually escape-proof. The island was a natural fortress, separated from the mainland by a narrow strait of freezing water and deadly currents. This prison was the U.S. government’s drastic ans...

Odd Man Out: James Mason – A Biography

‘Incredibly good-looking, in a dark way … that curious quality of a man with an eternal secret. … That was what was so arresting. … That and the voice.’ Geraldine FitzgeraldThe reason for watching a James Mason film, as the film critic Pauline Kael once noted, was usually only James Mason himself.Mason was actually pointed toward a career in architecture before acting overtook him during his third year at Cambridge. He went on to make an indelible impression playing emotionally haunted characters on stage and screen, such as one early stand-out role, Johnny McQueen in Carol Reed’s Odd Man Out (1947).Mason and his first wife, Pamela, arrived in the United States in the late forties, and the Hollywood phase of his career lasted through the 1950s.

The Worst Serial Killer In History

by Amy Delaney

Robert Pickton was a former pig farmer and serial killer convicted of the second-degree murders of six women. He was also charged in the deaths of an additional twenty women, many of them prostitutes and drug users. The pig farmer mainly preyed upon drug addicts and prostitutes, picking them up on the streets before driving them to his farm, where he had sex with them before torturing then murdering them. He handcuffed and stabbed other victims, including one woman who managed to escape, naked and bleeding, in 1997 after stabbing Pickton with his own knife.That woman was considered unreliable by police, though, and Pickton was not prosecuted. His rampage would continue another five years before he was finally caught....
