“We are all born sexual creatures, thank God, but it’s a pity so many people despise and crush this natural gift.”
“Life in Lubbock, Texas, taught me two things: One is that God loves you and you’re going to burn in hell. The other is that sex is the most awful, filthy thing on earth and you should save it for someone you love.”
“Sex without love is a meaningless experience, but as far as meaningless experiences go it’s pretty damn good.”
“Sex is the driving force on the planet. We should embrace it, not see it as the enemy.”
“Humans love sex, we need sex, it’s how we connect, it reminds us we’re alive, it’s the third most basic human need, after food and good movie popcorn.”
“It was my uncle who taught me about the birds and the bees. He sat me down one day and said, ‘Remember this, George, the birds fuck the bees.’ Then he told me he once banged a girl so hard her freckles came off.”
“Don’t have sex man. It leads to kissing and pretty soon you have to start talking to them.”
“If I’m not interested in a woman, I’m straight-forward. Right after sex, I usually say, ‘I can’t do this anymore. Thanks for coming over!”
“I like threesomes with two women, not because I’m a cynical sexual predator. Oh no! But because I’m a romantic. I’m looking for “The One.” And I’ll find her more quickly if I audition two at a time.”

She is sent to live with her godparents, Harold Mendenhall and his sister Frances. On the boat ride home, she meets Amun Farouk, a handsome Egyptian Ambassador who is also sailing to England to meet her godfather. What Justine does not realize as she dons the veil of mourning is that Harold runs a secret organization under the nose of polite society, much to the dismay of his genteel sister. The Council was created for the protection of humanity from the Varius, refugees from a parallel universe who shift their form while others channel the forces of magic. They seek refuge in Victorian London, hidden in the slums, easily forgotten until a human ends up incinerated or sucked dry. Drawn into the plot against her will, Justine finds herself the object of a vampire’s lurid obsession. According to ancient texts, vampires kill humans for fodder, their blood and the air they breathe inferior, but this killer has other intentions for her. Does Justine’s survival depend on Amun or will he kill her to save humanity?View Details »

But Inspector Bordelli isn't ready to give up.*View Details »
Florence, 1966. The rain is never-ending. When a young boy vanishes on his way home from school the police fear the worst, and Inspector Bordelli begins an increasingly desperate investigation.
Then the flood hits. During the night of November 4th, the swollen River Arno, already lapping the arches of the Ponte Vecchio, breaks its banks and overwhelms the city. Streets become rushing torrents, the force of the water sweeping away cars and trees, doors, shutters and anything else in its wake. In the aftermath of this unimaginable tragedy the mystery of the child's disappearance seems destined to go unsolved. But obstinate as ever, Bordelli is not prepared to give up.
Praise for Marco Vichi
“Inspector Bordelli has a lot on his mind. He wonders why he’s never found a great woman, he’s got to cut back on cigarettes, and he should probably figure out who killed that wealthy older lady in her 17th-century villa.” —The New York Times
“Vichi shows us ever more secret and dark sides to an otherwise sunny and open city. But his happiest creation, in my opinion, remains the character of Inspector Bordelli.” —Andrea Camilleri, New York Times bestselling author of the Inspector Montalbano series
“Vichi’s stellar first in a new mystery series delivers a plausible solution worthy of a golden age crime novel.” —Publishers Weekly (starred review)

"Have we been someone before? Is there a cycle to life that passes personality and society’s characteristics through the generations, much like our physical characteristics are passed by various chemical configurations?
What about many major religions that base their belief on reincarnation or past lives, and often times their leadership on someone’s presupposed link to the past? What about all those individuals claiming to have been someone before? What is the possibility that you have been someone before, and if so who? How does one find out about one’s own possibilities and one’s impact on today’s existence?
Many feel that meditation is the way to enter this world of deep inner knowledge and to bring awareness of this past cycle. Hypnosis has also been used to offer an abundance of examples to illustrate the possibility of our having been here before. To get past our immediate existence and regress through our birth to a world of spirits from the past is indeed an adventure, if such a world even exists.
Please join me now for a journey into an unseen world."
An actual journey into the mental workings of the mind. Seeking answer to past lives, reincarnation and the inner self. Explores through hypnosis the conscious and unconscious mind where the vast majority is hidden and not seen. Looks at a unique historical perspective. Thirteen leather bound papyrus volumes found in jars at a ruined tomb in Egypt. One such volume

Best of Luck.
Sebastian was turned into a vampire on his eighteenth birthday by his mother, whom he thought had died ten years earlier. His mother teaches him how to live amongst humans without spilling human blood. Almost two centuries later, his mother is killed and he blames humans.
After a year of brutally killing humans to exact vengeance, he comes upon the young child of a woman he just killed. He can’t bring himself to hurt the girl, so he names her Hanna after his mother, and finds a family to raise her. He anonymously provides for her, making sure her new parents have all the money they need to ensure she has a good life. Sebastian disappears from Hanna’s life to better himself for all the killings he has committed.
Although Hanna is out of his life, Sebastian can’t get her out of his head, and believes his love for her is like a father. He reappears in her life seventeen years later to see how she is faring, only to see that Hanna has grown into a beautiful woman. He falls in love with her all over again, but this time as a lover.
He plans an “accidental” meeting, which does not go well. Before Sebastian leaves Hanna once again, he learns that vampires and wolves are after her. Now it is up to Sebastian to secretly guard Hanna’s life.

I am not a Measurement
I am not a measurement
A set of numbers
Their relevance determined by others
In a society that seeks constant judgment
A computation of my proportions
Against garish standards
Dividing the good and the bad
According to some scale
Created in absurdity
In some strange twist of fate
A crooked line in humanity's development
I am not a computation on a bell curve
A dot on a graph
I refuse to be measured
On any scale
Not wrought of my own design
The dial turning
The arrow pointing
In a direction of my choosing
And mine alone
For there is no equation
Capable of measuring me
My complexities surpass the ability
To be analyzed by numbers
Meant to fit inside boxes
I reject the proposition
That places me on any scale
I am not a measurement
