The Changing Tide

My wife and I were on the shore of Maui one evening, watching the moonlight on the water as the tide came in, enveloping us. We had stood in nearly the same place earlier in the day, watching ships on the horizon as the tide rolled in, again enveloping us, but rising higher on the shore.

Brandt’s Recent Updates

Brandt asked a question about The Dark of Summer:
The Dark of Summer by Deanna Dwyer
I am looking for a copy of The Dark of Summer by Deanna Dwyer. It seems that since this is a pseudonym of Dean Koontz, the prices for this are extreme. I'm simply want to read it. Any ideas where I can find a copy?

“The world of books is the most remarkable creation of man. Nothing else that he builds ever lasts. Monuments fall, nations perish, civilizations grow old and die out, and after an era new races build others. But in the world of books are volumes that have seen this happen again and again and yet live on, still young, still as fresh as the day they were written, still telling men's hearts of the heart of men centuries dead.”
