They have one mission? and they accomplish it with one bullet. In Operation Iraqi Freedom, there is a special breed of hunter for whom the prey is the enemy?and every day is hunting season. This soldier is a HOG?a Hunter of Gunman. These stories give firsthand accounts of just how dangerous Iraq can be, the experience of these young men, and the consequences involved with being on a Marine Scout/Sniper team?an elite group that few can make, and possessing the precision that no others can master. From sniping on a rooftop in Baghdad to unknowingly being surrounded in a palm grove in the city of Hit, these stories will transport the reader right into the heat of the desert war, where one shot can make all the difference.

A compilation of six spine tingling short stories that take you to a world beyond ours, where the shadows come alive and the monsters come out to play.
From the deeply unsettling to the possibly supernatural, these thirty-one border-crossing stories from around the world explore the uncanny in literature, and delve into our increasingly unstable sense of self, home, and planet. The Uncanny Reader: Stories from the Shadows opens with "The Sand-man," E.T.A. Hoffmann's 1817 tale of doppelgangers and automatons—a tale that inspired generations of writers and thinkers to come. Stories by 19th and 20th century masters of the uncanny—including Edgar Allan Poe, Franz Kafka, and Shirley Jackson—form a foundation for sixteen award-winning contemporary authors, established and new, whose work blurs the boundaries between the familiar and the unknown. These writers come from Egypt, France, Germany, Japan, Poland, Russia, Scotland, England, Sweden, the United States, Uruguay, and Zambia—although their birthplaces are not always the terrains they plumb in their stories, nor do they confine themselves to their own eras. Contemporary authors include: Chris Adrian, Aimee Bender, Kate Bernheimer, Jean-Christophe Duchon-Doris, Mansoura Ez-Eldin, Jonathon Carroll, John Herdman, Kelly Link, Steven Millhauser, Joyce Carol Oates, Yoko Ogawa, Dean Paschal, Karen Russell, Namwali Serpell, Steve Stern and Karen Tidbeck.

Edinburgh in the Shadows - stories the tourist guides never reveal... Want to know the Edinburgh the tourist guides won't tell you about? Beattie and Scratchmann tell it like it really is in this fact-packed book from their popular spoken word show about the city's sinister side with stories, tales and poems of drugs and murder, witchcraft and fetishes, executions and hauntings, cover ups and botch jobs that reveal the truth behind Edinburgh's lesser-known miscreants, unfortunates and flawed geniuses. 'thoroughly dark and entertaining' 'kept the audience amused, aghast and attentive' 'darkly fascinating historical laughs and thrills' 'grimly amusing' First performed in June 2015, Edinburgh in the Shadows has entertained and amused audiences at the Celtic Mystery Festival, the Grassmarket Festival, the Merchant City Comedy Festival, and the Edinburgh Fringe Festival. It's also sold out at the National Library of Scotland, and toured libraries, cafes, pubs and clubs throughout Edinburgh. Back on the road for 2016, the show will be performed at the Cowgatehead venue during the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, with a warm up tour of Edinburgh's nest reading establishments.
Though the Mountains Tremble is a collection of random commentaries, from a biblical perspective, on issues and events in the contemporary world. Though most of the essays speak to specific events, they carry general observations that can provide insight into issues and events of any time. At the heart of these observations are a few basic assumptions--that God still works in history through nations and institutions, that God's purposes for the Creation are centered in Jesus Christ, that humankind was created to be God's representatives in caring for the world and all living things, that the crucial struggles in history are waged against the Powers and Principalities, and that both nations and individuals are held accountable to God for their actions. These reflections are rooted in the assumption that, although it is not an answer book or a spiritual almanac, the Bible bears testimony to the character of God and sets forth an ethos that can, if embraced, engender basic discernment in the midst of the world's chaos.
