Stealing Secrets is an attractive volume that is well presented and written.

Author: Rosita Forbes (edited with an introduction by Margaret Bald)
Publisher: Axios Press, Mount Jackson, VA
ISBN: 978-1-60419-030-4

Forbes’ writing is remarkably fluent for the era in which she wrote, with the major difference from that of contemporary writing being the exceptional length of her sentences, which, however, in no way obscures the clarity of her meaning and the vividness of her descriptions

Revelatory, probing, transforming and transcending the mundane—this work is a gem that deserves to be treasured.




Author: William B. Bradshaw
Publisher: Austin, TX: Synergy Books
ISBN: 0-9842358-5-X

Bradshaw is in a perfect position to have written such a book, as he earned his PhD under the instruction of Dr. Matthew Black, principal of St. Mary’s College at the University of St. Andrews, who was rigorous in the attention that he paid to grammatical correctness. Bradshaw himself is a firm adherent to the principles laid out in The Chicago Manual of Style: The Essential Guide for Writers, Editors, and Publishers

What is it that makes tales of drug addiction and prison incarceration so fascinating to the average reader?


Author: Leslie Dunton-Downer
Publisher: New York: Simon & Schuster
ISBN: 978-1-4391-7665-8

This lively and informative account of the origins and development of the English language is written so fluently and well that one can read the entire work in a single sitting, which is definitely not what one can say about many works of non-fiction

Author: Rulka Langer

Publisher: Aquila Polonica (U.S.) Ltd.

ISBN: 978-1-60772-000-3


This rare eyewitness account of the early, chaotic days of World War II stretching from the relatively halcyon days prior to the onset of World War II, through the Nazi invasion of Poland on September 1, 1939, and the siege of Warsaw to the first few months of the Nazi occupation is told from the perspective of a young working mother


Author: Fae Bidgoli

Publisher: Dog Ear Publishing

ISBN: 978-160844-517-2

Author: James J. Murphy III

Publisher: Shrub Oak, NY: I&J Publishing

ISBN: 978-0-9842731-0-2


Now that Murphy has succeeded in writing a novel badly (and, what’s more, in having it published, which, as we all know, is not a mean feat), perhaps he should try to write one well

Author: Bonnie Barnett

Publisher: Austin, TX: Synergy Books

ISBN: 978-0-9842358-7-2


This memoir should find resonance with anyone from a broken home who has struggled to make contact with an estranged parent. With so many marriages ending in divorce and separation these days, the prospective audience for the book should be very wide indeed


Author:  Tom McQueen

Publisher: Minneapolis, MN: Serephina Press

ISBN: 978-0-9841965-9-3


The sound moral and ethical base of these life lessons, told with mature and reasoned good sense, ensures that the content of these letters provides much over which to ponder.

Author: Mark W. Stephens

Publisher: Outskirts Press, Inc.

ISBN: 978-1-4327-2517-4


Stephens definitely is on a mission with this book, and, as I have noted, subtitling it A Children’s Guide, although at first seeming to be quite misleading, might be more appropriate than Stephens originally intended

Author: Roberta Grimes

Publisher: Greater Reality Publications

If you are looking for a straightforward story with no underlying themes, complexities and subtleties, this pièce de résistance is not for you.

Author: Neal Powers

Publisher: iUniverse

ISBN: 978-1-4502-3716-1


Powers has the knack of describing a character in a few lines that convey the essence of that individual’s persona

ISBN: 089-0-98430-812-5

 

Out of the Transylvania Night is a deeply moving account of one woman’s search for her own identity, firstly under the Communist dictatorship of the ruthlessly oppressive Ceauşescu, and, later, as she struggles to maintain her integrity in the face of overwhelming materialism.

ISBN: 9781452871264

This delightful collection of six short stories and two novellas is set in the mythical realm of Gundarland on a planet named Gundar, which, according to Quense, was named after “the omniscient god who accidentally created the universe with an explosive sneeze caused by snorting a larger-than-average dose of His favorite recreational powder.” As you can gather, this work is only for older kids and their insightful parents…
