"We write. We fly. We teach. We Publish. We save the world through well-written aviation scenes." We like to say this because Mike Ely and I are both pilots and authors, and like helping non-pilots write aviation stories and scenes accurately, and helping aviators write their stories. We are also accepting submissions in various genres.(less)

The Western Wind by Samantha Harvey

Clear rating
I, too, was drawn to this book, and it was even richer than I imagined it could be. An intricate, well-crafted tale which I would have enjoyed studying with a book club if I was in one. Wonderful story.

Weighing Light by Geoffrey Brock

Not my cup o' tea, these poems. I was disappointed because I went on the recommendation of New Criterion, of which I am a fan. I expected something different, more sophisticated, but seems to me there are quite a lot of pieces here which seem immatur ...more

Scotland by Fiona MacDonald

Adorable little handbook of some of Scottish history that might be a bit more obscure to the non-historian. Unfortunately, the two members of Clan Logan who were with "the soldier who took the heart of Bruce" toward the Holy Land were not mentioned. ...more

The author chose an interesting way to tell her story about southern literature: mapping her journey to towns where certain authors lived, visiting, noting the environmental and cultural influences. A quote of Alice Walker, “It all comes back to hous ...more

This story is very well written. The author really didn't leave anything out, and packed it all together quite well. Some of the text is disturbing, even though fictional, and I would caution survivors of domestic violence, sexual assault and incest, ...more

While keeping to the theme of faith like a mustard seed, these 13 short stories are of a delightful variety. "Just Like That" is an adorably story. "Do Not Pass Me By" reaches the heart, deeply. "Asher: A Death Row Inmate" is beautiful. I recommend t ...more

Antoine de Saint-Exupéry
“One thing that I had loved in Paraguay was the ironic grass that showed the tip of its nose between the pavements of the capital, that slipped in on behalf of the invisible but ever-present virgin forest to see if man still held the town, if the hour had not come to send all those stones tumbling.

- from Wind, Sand and Stars by Antoine St. Exupery (1939)”
Antoine St.-Exupery

Yann Martel
“These people fail to realize that it is on the inside that God must be defended, not on the outside. They should direct their anger at themselves. For evil in the open is but evil from within that has been let out. The main battlefield for good is not the open ground of the public arena but the small clearing of each heart.”
Yann Martel, Life of Pi

Tim O'Brien
“They carried the sky. The whole atmosphere, they carried it, the humidity, the monsoons, the stink of fungus and decay, all of it, they carried gravity.”
Tim O'Brien, The Things They Carried

Tim O'Brien
“They carried all they could bear, and then some, including a silent awe for the terrible power of the things they carried.”
Tim O'Brien, The Things They Carried

Richard Bledsoe
“This is our moment in the mighty continuum of art and life. Real art knows no boundaries; it communicates across all times, across all cultures. Art is as much an aspect of our species as the opposable thumb, and just as prevalent.”
Richard Bledsoe, Remodern America: How the Renewal of the Arts Will Change the Course of Western Civilization
