By Keith C. Blackmore
In the dead of winter, on a highway in Quebec, a man crashes his car and survives. In New York, a homeless person is run over by a bus and lives. In Tokyo, a teenager jumps off a high rise building and fails in taking her own life. All over the world, miracles like these transpire, and people breathe a sigh of relief.
But for the next week, some people will begin to suspect a terrible truth. A handful will even search for it. One man will find it.
And in seven days, all hell will break loose.
(A tale of horror. Graphic violence and language.)
Review (from Smashwords):
"I didn't think this was "my kind of book." But I couldn't wait to see how it ended! The beginning set-up of the novel is quite gory in spots (Personal tip for the squeamish: Skim the fight scenes; just find out who is fighting, who wins and who loses! No need to keep count of broken bones.) but humor shines through in other parts of the book. Does anyone NOT come to really LIKE the Boatman? I don't think so. By the end of the book, you know so much more about him that you have to love the old cuss."
The Mystic Travelogues by J.C. Nusbaum is a wonderful book for both children and adults - it has some deep ideas, and many adults will love it, just as adults love "children's" books such as The Wizard of Oz, Alice in Wonderland, Harry Potter, Philip Pullman's His Dark Materials, etc. The book is illustrated with black & white drawings by the author. DRM-free.

From the back cover:
Ten-year-old Tug is lost in the world, even to himself. Shuffled from one relative to the next, he has no place to call home and no sense of what his future will hold. But when destiny intervenes and sends Tug and his cousin Jodie to stay with a distant uncle in Vermont, they could not anticipate the strange occurrences at the enchanted old house. When their uncle disappears under mysterious circumstances, the two children begin a journey that will challenge their courage and reveal magic both underneath them and inside of them.
Travel to a mystic destination-
where animals know your destiny,
where dangerous Nomes lurk in the shadows,
and where a stuffed bear can bring you to life.
Praise for The Mystic Travelogues:
"This book is a rare treat for the child in anyone, regardless of age. It combines whimsy, fantasy, imagination and a compelling plot while also fostering spiritual literacy.... A delight not to be missed!"

The views on soul and reincarnation vary from no such thing as a ‘soul’ to only humans possess a soul, to both humans and animals possess a soul, and that soul likewise dies when the physical body dies or that soul is immortal and never dies. All religions believe in the existence of SOUL in human body, but they differ in what happens after death. This manuscript searches for the truth.

This collection of spiritual stories and precepts supplement and buttress our moral sense, which is conscience or the spark within that tells us to do good. Learning spirituality is not simply philosophy and drama. It teaches us everyday behavior, whether controlling our tempers or appetites, or just watch TV. We learn spirituality the same way we learn math or play baseball -- through practice.
