    The Seer- James Menaker

     

    Legends say that long ago a mystical order of men and women walked the earth: The Seers.

    The stories claim they saw the invisible, knew what no one else knew, and performed impossible feats of power. They wandered the earth as champions for the oppressed and heralds of days to come. The Order was cloaked in mystery and suspicion, but when they spoke, the wise listened.

    Elijah is a normal man with supernatural abilities, who is called upon to challenge an entire kingdom. The Seer invites you to enter into a world filled with wonder and corruption, selfless heroism and unbridled evil...a place where the dangers that you can’t see are just as deadly as those that you can. Elijah and his allies discover that when gods battle for the soul of humanity, one man can make all the difference.

    The Most Expensive Mistress in Jefferson County - Jim Misko

     

    It is the last week of a three year struggle to close a $400 million dollar deal between the U.S. Government, 130 individual ranchers, and the Nez Perce tribe.  All have agreed to participate in the largest real estate exchange in Idaho history.  But Hawkins Neilson is sick, real sick.

    Everyone wants a piece of Hawk’s $10 million profitundefinedif the deal closes.  And now the Nez Perce have hired an ex-convict to negotiate for them.  If he can just survive to the closing he’ll have it made.

    “Misko sets the tension in motion early, immediately increases it to fever pitch, then sustains it as one escalating crescendo.  A variety of three dimensional and sympathetic characters drive the plot to a realistic and entirely satisfactory conclusion.”  Leonard Bird, author of River Of Lost Souls and Folding Paper Cranes, an Atomic Memoir.

    Beer on the Last Frontier is the first book ever written that focuses exclusively on the craft breweries and brewpubs of Alaska. It is an exploration of and guide to the numerous craft breweries of The Great Land and the exceptional beers they are brewing. Volume I covers the breweries of the Kenai Peninsula and Kodiak Island. Volume II will cover Anchorage, Fairbanks, and all points in between. Volume III will cover Southeast Alaska. This book is not intended to be a stand-alone guidebook to Alaska. Rather, it should be viewed as a guidebook specifically for the craft beer lover, one which will enable any visitor or tourist who is particularly interested in experiencing craft beer in Alaska to do so most effectively.

    This volume, The Kenai Peninsula and Kodiak Island Breweries, covers the four breweries and two brewpubs located in these two regions of Alaska in detail. Profusely illustrated with color photographs and containing interviews with the brewers, it also provides detailed information to aid the visitor to Alaska, such as driving directions, operating hours, as well as beer lists and tasting notes for each of the craft breweries. Besides detailed information on each of the breweries, the book also offers suggestions on bars, restaurants, and liquor stores in the regions which offer good selections of craft beers from the 49th state.
