  • Lustmord: Anatomy of a Serial Butcher Vol. 1 (of 6) on Oct. 28, 2013

    Graphic, Bloody and Gruesome: This will make your skin crawl. It's about as graphic, bloody and gruesome as you can get. A hard-hitting gruesome tale intended for the hardiest of the horror/thriller crowd. Definitely not a read for the squeamish or faint hearted. Although, I would imagine that fans of this genre won't be able to wait to sink their teeth into this one!

Definitely not a read for the squeamish or faint hearted. The author has the ability to lure the reader into this dark world - kicking and screaming if need be! Read it at your own risk.

  • Lustmord: Anatomy of a Serial Butcher Vol. 3 (of 6) on Oct. 28, 2013

    This is Raw, Dark and Disturbing! This is a hard-hitting gruesome tale intended for the hardiest of the horror/thriller crowd. The only way to describe this work of terror is red raw, deeply dark and deathly disturbing. This book, to say the least, holds nothing back when it comes to being graphic. Definitely not a read for the squeamish or faint hearted. As I read through this work I began to understand why the author had to walk away from writing this story several times. Now, that should tell you something! The author has the ability to lure the reader into this dark world - kicking and screaming if need be! Read it at your own risk. You have been warned. Although, I would imagine that fans of this genre won't be able to wait to sink their teeth into this one!

  • Key To Immortality — Commentary on Gospel of Thomas on Feb. 26, 2014

    This book presents the sayings of the Gospel of Thomas alongside what I would describe as credible and compelling commentary. This gospel charts the course of salvation as a study in interpretation, providing the elixir of life to those for whom the secret of the kingdom is disclosed in the interpretation of Jesus' words. It makes for a fascinating read and a far cry from the established religions that have enslaved humanity for centuries. I am neither an historian nor a theologian, but I do know that history is replete with the purging of materials (including human beings) that are considered inappropriate to a goal at hand. Therefore, it doesn’t seem at all far-fetched to me that writings not expressed in accordance with the canons being advocated by a powerful church would be purged thoroughly enough that only one full manuscript might be later found. This would make that manuscript seem to be of much higher value to truth-seekers (and to me personally) than those sanctioned by religious bureaucrats. Thomas tells us more about the historical Jesus than all of the Dead Sea Scrolls put together and this is a superb presentation of the most important early Christian text discovered in the 20th century. The author provides you with a deeper insight into the meaning of the Gospel of Thomas and I would consider this to be a brave and commendable effort. I would highly recommend this insightful and intriguing read to all those who seek an alternative way of looking at what we call ‘reality’.
