  • The Gate - Things my Mother told me. on April 06, 2014

    The Gate: Things My Mother Told Me is a beautiful memoir and an exceptional experience of a lady, Mrs. Kordos, meeting with her own mortality through the face of Alzheimer’s. Author Stan I.S. Law brings us the story Mrs. Kordos, written from her perspective. In the spirit of love and mindfulness she records her experiences and guidance. We learn of the love affair between her and her husband Jan, (Whom affectionately refers to her as Mimi, a Puccini reference). We learn of the love and relationships with her children. We learn her thoughts and feelings on a variety of subjects all with keen interest and profound insight. It comes with a raw honesty that is not only striking but captivating. As we read these private thoughts and emotions we are filled with so many of our own feelings and insights. The dialogue is beautifully composed with humor and seriousness conveying with perfect fluidity the gravity of each moment. To experience something so real, moving and meaningful is a gift. I highly recommend it!
  • Yeshua - Personal Memoir of the Missing Years of Jesus on April 08, 2014

    Yeshua is an enlightening story of Jesus’ life during the ages of 12 to 30. Stan I.S. Law brings to life this remarkable journey of travels, enlightenment, love, friendship, and passion of Yeshua (Jesus) during the 18 years not mentioned in the bible. Stan I.S. Law’s illustrates with vivid intensity the playful innocence and insatiable quest for knowledge that existed in Yeshua. As he travels with Satya he is exposed to different religions and cultures. The friendship between Yeshua and Satya deepen and pull at our very heart. We come to love Yeshua as his disciples and Satya loved him. We come to feel their pain and the pain of his parents at his loss. This is a beautiful book that transmits the story of this holy man in a sensitive and profound manner that shines upon the realities faced by Yeshua in his human form as his journey takes him from boy to man but also to teacher and leader. It brings with it a deeper understanding and feeling of compassion and forgiveness. I highly recommend it!
  • Peter and Paul on April 12, 2014

    Peter and Paul is an intriguing and intellectual examination and recreation of the lives of the Apostles Peter and Paul. In this book Stan I.S. Law uses historical and spiritual texts (and some contemplative imagination) to recreate the life and journeys of these two very different men. We learn who they were, the different world they lived in, what moved them, inspired them and how they took their different paths to instilling what they learned from Jesus. We meet many historical figures through this book and learn of them all in a more human and enlightening manner. The weaknesses and strengths that humankind is endowed with and what will bring out our power to invoke these attributes and frailties is a remarkable thing. To be able to explain a man’s life in a way that makes sense and creates a whole picture is a remarkable feat. Stan I.S. Law has a genuine talent for such feats. I highly recommend it!
  • ELOHIM-Masters & Minions [Winston Trilogy Book Two] on April 14, 2014

    Elohim – Masters & Minions is the second book of the Winston Trilogy. It continues with the story of Dr. Peter Thornton and his life experiences related to his gift (or curse) of healing. Since discovering his power of healing Peter’s life has been turned upside down. No longer able to practice medicine and with a mob lurking Peter has locked himself away. With the death of his brother and Peter’s predicament, he decided to move in with his sister-in-law Ruth Thornton, her children Jonathan and Moira Thornton and her butler (among other things), Winston Smith. Elohim continues on with Peter’s realizations and growth. There is international intrigue, religion, esoteric observations, science, nanotechnology, androids, romance, philosophy and more. Stan I.S. Law has bested himself with this sequel to One Just Man. He paints with intense detail and a wide pallet of colors in this intelligent story full of many moving parts. The science is illuminating, the philosophy intriguing and the human element brilliant. Winston is an amazing character that I think everyone should know. I highly recommend it! And I look forward to reading the third and final book of the Winston Trilogy.
  • Winston's Kingdom [Winston Trilogy Book III] on April 18, 2014

    In Winston’s Kingdom we reach the culmination of the Winston trilogy in a thrilling and thought provoking manner. Much like the other two books in this trilogy we experience the wide range of human experiences such as love, romance, growth, spirituality, and the acceptance and development of our gifts. Stan I.S. Law uses his unique talent of engaging and conveying the whole of a man’s world to explore metaphysics in a believable reality. All of the characters are beautifully constructed and lend significant weight to the overall story. Winston is my favorite, a remarkable character that illuminates and inspires. After reading the entire trilogy you see the potential and growth faced by and accomplished by these superb characters. You will also have gained quite a bit of scientific knowledge. While this book and the series are in no way light reading it is surely worthwhile reading. For an entertaining and transforming experience, I highly recommend it!
  • Alexander [Alexander Trilogy Book Two] on April 22, 2014

Alec having just earned his master’s degree is about to set out for his doctorate. He is struggling with his abilities to traverse time and space while being a student of physics and knowing that it defies current logic. Suzy (wife and childhood love) begs to differ as she has witnessed the happenings.

  • Beyond Religion Volume I on May 20, 2014

    Beyond Religion I is a fascinating and insightful glimpse into spirituality. While religion is structured and more absolute, spirituality allows for the ability to believe in God without having to necessarily subscribe to a religion. This book provides endless details and references that allow for a more comprehensive understanding of biblical references.

    Avatar Syndrome is an enlightening and thought-provoking journey that marries science and fiction with perfect precision to bring us a thoroughly entertaining story. Author Stan I.S.

  • Gift of Gamman on June 12, 2014

    Gift of Gamman is a thought-provoking science fiction thriller but it doesn’t end there. This story encompasses many genres as an original and gripping read. It is important in this story to read the prologue. If this is something you normally skip you would be remiss to do that with this story. Adam Blake awakes after nearly 50 years of deep slumber to find he has arrived at his destination. On a one way mission to collect data for the United Planets Federation of a peculiar black hole the ship would collect the necessary data while Adam would add to it human observation and insight. Only once Adam arrives he finds that what he expected to happen - what should be happening - is not happening. What happens next is a fascinating exploration into a reality where energy is manipulated but our consciousness remains. Adam is able to transverse time and space in an epic journey that could only be brought to us by Stan I.S. Law. Author Stan I.S. Law has outdone himself with Gift of Gamman. This story not only engages science fiction but spirituality, love, adventure, history and hope. As Adam chooses to return to earth and inhabit the body of John Galt he experiences even further awakenings. He is exposed to an alien race that is enigmatic and intriguing. John-Adam finds enlightenment in the esoteric. The story has incredible characters, scenery and dialogue. The humor and seriousness flow together beautifully.

  • Now - Being and Becoming on June 22, 2014

    Now – Being & Becoming is an amazing journey through one man’s thoughts and experiences after a life altering experience. Stan I.S. Law brings us the story of John. When John is in an accident he is seriously hurt. His consciousness stays behind at the scene of the accident while his body is transported via ambulance to the hospital. He believes he has died and starts to think about life and about his wife Ruth. He thinks she will be mad at him, that she told him not to have that second scotch even though it was likely a pothole that caused the accident. John goes on to ponder his life and whether he is, at the moment, still alive. The narration flows naturally as if they were your own thoughts drawing you hypnotically into the story. Through John we begin to feel as though we know Ruth and begin to feel compassion for how this experience will affect her. The tenderness that exists between John and Ruth is beautiful and amazing. As the story progresses John is introduced to deeper thoughts and experiences involving science, religion and faith. Law’s ability to create a story that transcends the typical boundaries never ceases to amaze me. He has an uncanny ability to build a whole world around you that you are completely immersed in. Everything comes to life - the scenery, the noises, tastes, smells, thoughts, feelings, science, urgency and so much more as John exposes every thought and experience he has. For an unparalleled experience, I highly recommend it!

Stan I.S. Law’s ability to transport the reader to the mind of a pet and allow the reader a full experience of thoughts, emotions and sensory feeling epitomizes the reason we take up with the written word to begin with. It allows us to appreciate another aspect of life, another world, a new thought process. It is humorous, delightful, mysterious, suspenseful, honest, intelligent, and thought-provoking.

  • One Just Man [Winston Trilogy Book I] on Aug. 11, 2014

    One Just Man is a brilliant story that guides the reader through a variety of esoteric thought through an entertaining plot and set of characters. Author Stan I.S. Law brings us this unusual and intelligent story of a doctor who discovers he has a gift for healing. While it would seemingly be a wonderful thing Law shows us how a gift such as this could really affect a man and the world around him. Dr. Peter Thornton is a confident well educated man who believes his photographic memory for scientific fact gives him a cutting edge in his profession. Peter once wanted to be a priest but backed out at the last minute. He was devout even keeping his virginity up until the age of 24 when a nurse showed him what he had been missing. Since then Peter has known many nurses in numerous linen closets around the hospital. He has carried guilt over leaving the seminary and has donated large sums of money to the church for retribution. When Peter’s brother passed away he went against his usual judgment and agreed to move in with his sister in law Ruth, her butler and her children to be a role model to his brother’s adopted children. Dr. Peter Thornton is a complex character with an interesting personality that is explored in depth once he realizes that he has a gift for healing. This gift shakes his self image as it becomes something outside of his hard work and intellect. Shaken, he must learn to cope with his gift and what it means. With the help of some inspiring characters Peter will explore the many angles, responsibilities and emotions that have transpired from this gift. Law’s ability to inject humor, dynamic scenery, entertaining dialogue and phenomenal energy into his stories captures both the imagination and the heart long after you have finished with the story. His depiction of one man’s quest to understand the special and life changing ability he has is remarkable. For an unforgettable journey through science, faith, spirituality, love, friendship, and enlightenment, I highly recommend it!

  • Sci-Fi Series 1 (Thirsty Work, The Acorn, Dare, Black Hole) on Aug. 31, 2014

    Sci-Fi Series 1 is a brilliant and entertaining set of short stories. Author Stan I.S. Law continues to impress me as an author and creator. Every book I experience of his opens up new insights and thought processes for me. Sci-Fi Series 1 is no exception. Perfect for any science fiction fan Law’s stories go even further by providing a strong intellect and solid science. Black Hole is my favorite of this set, though that is a hard distinction to make. Black Hole is an adapted prologue to Gift of Gamman (which I also highly recommend). Dare is also very intriguing as is the idea of being immortal. The Acorn and its exploration of the environment is particularly thought provoking for me. Thirsty Work is amusing and has incredible character development. The detail and possibilities that are explored in these stories are intriguing, suspenseful, mysterious, and thought provoking.

    Just a Fling is the thrillingly erotic and exotic first book in the Billionaires on the Beach series. Author Olivia Noble brings us the story of Eva.

  • Sci-Fi Series 2 (Simulator, Little Angels, Esperanza) on Sep. 09, 2014

    Sci-Fi Series 2 is an intelligent, witty, and thought provoking collection of short stories brought to us by Author Stan I.S. Law. I always enjoy Law’s books. They are full of esoteric thoughts, interesting and scientifically sound concepts and intriguing characters. There is religion, spirituality, science, family, friendship, heartache, passion, attraction, compassion, exploration and so much more. This book contains three unique and original short stories Simulator, Little Angels, and Esperanza. They are all captivating and wonderful. Little Angels brings about some interesting concepts of love, family and population control. Esperanza inspires and values friendship. My favorite (though a hard distinction to make) is Simulator. In this story Acting Ensign Astrid Dwain and Lieutenant Bram Jordan are collecting information for the Galactic Navy when a shocking revelation causes Astrid to break the Law of Noninterference. What happens next is both shocking and healing. This is another great contribution by Stan I.S. Law. As always I am impressed with Law’s work and look forward to more. I highly recommend it!
  • Clarity on Sep. 15, 2014

    Clarity is unlike any book I have read. It is beautiful, tragic, hopeful, comical, soulful, and mesmerizing. I was completely captivated by Helen’s story. Her strength is powerful, her fragility endearing. There is obvious heat and chemistry between Helen and Liam that gives rise to hope that Helen will be able to overcome the serious challenges she faces in allowing someone to enter her life again. While Author Loretta Lost keeps the story light and positive throughout most of the book there are moments that are hard to experience. These moments contribute significantly to Helen’s ability to trust Liam and allowing herself to get close to him. While Helen’s hesitation is more than understandable, I am eager to read the next book in the series and hopeful that she is able to overcome the traumatic moments that sent her into isolation. I highly recommend it!

While life seems to be going good Helen then discovers a shocking secret Liam has been hiding from her. Suddenly she feels more hurt by Liam then she did by Grayson.

  • Delusions — Pragmatic Realism on Nov. 13, 2014

    Delusions – Pragmatic Realism is a serious book for those serious about expanding their knowledge and open to exploring their beliefs. While very controversial, Author Stanislaw Kapuscinski spares nothing as he opens your mind to new thoughts and possibilities. You may not agree with everything you read but you will leave enlightened, informed, and grateful for the experience. Both religion and science have been off the mark on many occasions and learning that it is okay to question the world around you, to know that you are not going to fall into a flaming pit for doing so, is a beautiful and bond-breaking gift. Stanislaw brings a directness you can respect along with humor that offers some reprieve to the heavy material. His grasp of both science and religion is staggering and never ceases to impress me. I have been a fan of Stanislaw’s for some time now and I count this as another success in a series of books I will never forget. This intelligent examination will leave you contemplating your own beliefs and place in the world for some time. It is a gift and I highly recommend it!

As Brogdon so elegantly puts it the light will shine on the darkness and there will come a day when these dark sides of the internet will no longer exist. This is a thoroughly entertaining, illuminating, and inspiring book. I highly recommend it!

Kapuscinski provides examples of how to use the dictionary and inspires readers to discover their own interpretations. At some point it becomes apparent that much of the bible is written in allegories and finding the meaning in it is important. With Kapuscinski's Dictionary you will be well on your way to finding your individual spiritual truth. I highly recommend it!

  • Beyond Religion Volume II on Jan. 02, 2015

    Beyond Religion II is a collection of essays that inspires us to find the truth within ourselves. We are aided on our journey to self enlightenment by Author Stanislaw Kapuscinski's thought-provoking and introspective writings; writings that inspire readers to think, question, and ponder our beliefs. When we question our beliefs and start to think of new possibilities we venture into the unknown. As we so eloquently learn, venturing into the unknown is the only way we grow and achieve progress. Kapuscinski refers to our beliefs and truths as our gardens. With this collection of essays Kapuscinski is trying to help us "...cultivate our own, individual gardens." This is my favorite feature of Kapuscinski's work, it is like having your best friend guide you through your journey of self discovery without pressuring you to believe one thing or another. Kapuscinski explores his own thoughts and beliefs and invites you to do the same. His perspective often leads to further questions and discoveries you may not have thought of otherwise. I highly recommend this book and Kapuscinski's work to anyone looking for the truth within themselves and to find greater communion with spirituality.
