Long-time Sag Harborites writer Alexandra Eames and painter Whitney Hansen have collaborated on this eloquent portrait in words and images of the 300-year-old village of Sag Harbor, NY. From its beginnings as a leading whaling port in the nineteenth century Sag Harbor developed into an industrial center in the twentieth century. Today, the village is a center of art and literary culture for the East End of Long Island—and a major tourist destination. Sag Harbor offers an environment that is diverse, respectful of tradition, and at the same time tolerant of strangers and new ideas. Eames’s insightful interviews with dozens of old-timers combine with Hansen’s evocative paintings of the varied Sag Harbor landscape to present a unique portrait of this remarkable village. With 75 full-color reproductions of Whitney Hansen's paintings.

In the Upper Room and Other Likely Stories is the new collection of sixteen fantastic, ironic tales by Terry Bisson. Terry Bisson uses the fantastic genres as do Kurt Vonnegut or Harlan Ellison, and like them, he is one of the strikingly original voices in short fiction today, with an audience that transcends genre. "Particularly delightful," said The Christian Science Monitor of his first collection. Bisson writes entertaining and moving stories in a strong and unique voice. They are sharp, witty, subversive, and stylish. For instance: An Office Romance: a story of the private lives of icons on a computer desktop. First Fire: a scientist discovers a way to date burning flame's and tries it on one in an ancient temple, with astonishing results. Macs: clones of murderous criminals, with no human rights, are sent to be the property of their victims' families. From the author of "Bears Discover Fire," one of the most anthologized American short stories of the last decade, this is a collection of stories that originally appeared in sources as diverse as Asimov's SF, Playboy, Southern Exposure, and Crank! They are clever, slick, memorable, occasionally profound, and always surprising. At the Publisher's request, this title is being sold without Digital Rights Management Software (DRM) applied.

This book is a poetic journey comprised of mini chapters resembling a modern day Biblical Psalms. Like Psalms, this is a writer’s deepest expressions, sincerest conversations with God and the depiction of hope in Him. Despite the mess ups, there is true repentance, and compassion for us as individuals and moreover as a human race. The Holy Spirit has guided me and God has sustained my life so that I can proclaim His works. Although some may see this as controversial I plead with you to be non judgmental for these are my encounters, stories, accounts, events and thoughts that many experience but are afraid of expressing in fear of being seen as odd. Hopefully as you journey with me you will realize that we are more of the same than different, especially when we recognize that it is all about being led by our Creator. When in doubt I dare you to try Him out! Take the challenge and surrender to that which already lies within you, just turn on that light switch, who I call friend, guide, comforter, vindicator and most of all partner. Put your seatbelt on and embrace my limitless journey with the Holy Spirit!
