Fr. Papandreou reminded the conference of the question which had bothered the ‘composer’ so much. ‘Had he been talking to Beethoven in heaven? If not, to whom was he talking?’

The western bishop could not contain himself any longer. ‘So now the walking dead are targeting the walking living and giving them ready-made symphonies announcing the end of the world, in this case written by Beethoven but not before he died. You must be joking! Where do you get this from? Even the inspector sounds now like he is losing it.’

All over the world people are buzzing about a symphony that seems divinely inspired. But even more intriguing is the statement made by the conductor that he didn’t use any music to direct the orchestra. Charged with investigating the mystery for the the Times newspaper, Inspector Michael Lewis travels across the world to engage in a summit discussion about the source of the mystical piece of music. Join author Dr. Erik Eriksson for a spiritual epiphany of historic proportions, and the profound impact of Beethoven’s Tenth Symphony.

From “Hallelujah and a Show of Hands” to “Cowgirl Up, Cupcakes,” 153 women living in the west write of ways they sustain their communities. A woman chooses horse work over housework; neighbors pull together to fight a wildfire, a woman rides a donkey across Colorado to raise funds for kids. Writers recall connections found at a powwow, in a sewing circle, among rodeo moms. Lively, enduring, heartfelt, CRAZY WOMAN CREEK celebrates communities.

SPIRAL

by Paul McEuen

Rave Review from Mysterious Galaxy

“March 1946. The war’s over but for the shouting. Young scientist is called to the Pacific, and away from decommissioning the German chemical and germ warfare program. Witnesses nuclear blast and thwarts plot to unleash a doomsday weapon.

“Flash forward to today. Scientist is now in his mid-eighties and most beloved professor at Cornell University. His sixty-odd-old chickens have come home to roost. Now it’s up to his young collegue and his granddaughter to save the world. Fungus and plague and nanotechnology, oh my!

“SPIRAL! reads like a movie: visual detail, vivid characters, cutting-edge tech, and a page-turning plot. It you miss Michael Crichton as much as I do, give Paul McEuen Saturday afternoon. You won’t be sorry. The Dial Press, $25.00. Signed copies available- reserve yours now.”- PMH

MR. MENDOZA’S PAINTBRUSH

Yes, who is this Mr. Mendoza?

Good question. There’s not much that we can confirm outside of his controversial claim to being the graffiti king of Mexico. But the best way to find out more is to grab a copy of MR. MENDOZA’S PAINTBRUSH (ISBN 978-1-933693-23-1, $17.95). Luis Alberto Urrea (INTO THE BEAUTIFUL NORTH, THE HUMMINGBIRD’S DAUGHTER, THE DEVIL’S HIGHWAY) wrote the story and artist Christopher Cardinate adapted it into this remarkable graphic novel. Get it now!

“Who does Mr. Mendoza think he is?”

“I’ll tell you! I’m Mendoza, that’s who!”
