The beautiful blue planet of New Jerusalem is home to the wonderous megacity of Heavensport, “the place where dreams come true.” For Rolland Newcastle, that dream is not to die. Rolland inherited his troubles from his ancestors, the legal owners of New Jerusalem. After cryrosleeping for 223 years, they found that technological advances had allowed squatters’ ships to make the journey in just 3.5 years. Arriving 200 years later, they found an established world that didn’t want them. The Fall of Heaven was just the start.

An immersive, gripping account of the rise and fall of Iran's glamorous Pahlavi dynasty, written with the cooperation of the late Shah's widow, Empress Farah, Iranian revolutionaries and US officials from the Carter administration In this remarkably human portrait of one of the twentieth century's most complicated personalities, Mohammad Reza Pahlavi, Andrew Scott Cooper traces the Shah's life from childhood through his ascension to the throne in 1941. He draws the turbulence of the post-war era during which the Shah survived assassination attempts and coup plots to build a modern, pro-Western state and launch Iran onto the world stage as one of the world's top five powers. Readers get the story of the Shah's political career alongside the story of his courtship and marriage to Farah Diba, who became a power in her own right, the beloved family they created, and an exclusive look at life inside the palace during the Iranian Revolution. Cooper's investigative account ultimately delivers the fall of the Pahlavi dynasty through the eyes of those who were there: leading Iranian revolutionaries; President Jimmy Carter and White House officials; US Ambassador William Sullivan and his staff in the American embassy in Tehran; American families caught up in the drama; even Empress Farah herself, and the rest of the Iranian Imperial family. Intimate and sweeping at once, The Fall of Heaven recreates in stunning detail the dramatic and final days of one of the world's most legendary ruling families, the unseating of which helped set the stage for the current state of the Middle East.

"With an almost encyclopedic knowledge of the historic underbelly of Galveston and a ringing feel for dialogue, Long Fall From Heaven carries us along on a sordid yet seamless narrative of murderous mayhem." —Craig Johnson, author of the Walt Longmire Mysteries Cueball Boland and Micah Lanscomb—both ex-cops with troubled pasts—stumble into the path of a serial killer. The murderer leads them into the dark history of Galveston when the city was Texas’ Sin City. The killer has roots sunk deep into that history, but the FBI and the old Galveston families don’t want Cueball and Micah to solve the crimes. Listen closely. There’s an echo of another serial killer who stalked the city back during World War II. George Wier writes like he talks: Texan. In the 1990s he befriended the older novelist Milton T. Burton and the two became close friends. In 1998, Burton, worried about his health, told Wier this story and asked him to be his collaborator and principal writer. The two friends talked back and forth, and Wier wrote the novel. Meanwhile, impatient with the publishing industry, George Wier has very successfully e-published his Bill Travis Mystery Series. He plays classical violin and country fiddle, dabbles in art and photography, and is a born promoter of all that he does. This is his first trade-published novel. He lives in Austin, Texas with his wife Sallie. Milton T. Burton (1947-2011) authored four crime novels published by Minotaur/Thomas Dunne. Like Wier, Burton was a lifelong Texan who breathed the Texas lingo. Burton had been variously a cattleman, a political consultant, and a college history teacher. A cantankerous but generous man, he liked writing and he liked talking to his friends, especially George Wier. He died in December 2011.

What happens to us when the line goes flat? Cardiologists can tell us what happens to the heart at death. Neurologists have extensive knowledge about what occurs in the brain and central nervous system at the moment we die. But what happens to our consciousness? There is much evidence that awareness continues. The Bible tells us exactly what happens when we die. As you read this book you will discover the amazing equipoise of death-the delicate equilibrium between the ‘not yet’ and ‘now’ of the new body and the new spirit-soul. For the person in Christ death is not a passage into gloom and uncertainty, but is like arriving at the crest of a great mountain after a long climb through whirling storms and tearing winds, and basking in the brilliant radiance at the top. The mere existence of bios-life locked inside a deteriorating, decaying body is released into the purity of being which is the Zoe-Life Adam and Eve knew before the fall into sin and death, and won back for us by Jesus’ sacrifice of Himself on the cross and His amazing resurrection. If you are fearful of death, or still feeling sting of bereavement, or desiring to give comfort and hope to others who have experienced loss, this book will be a source of assurance, comfort, hope, and peace as in page after page it brings together the profound truths of Scripture and takes you on an exhilarating exploration of their rich detail. * Are we disembodied spirits floating in heavenly space, or do we receive the new body immediately upon dying? * How does the human psyche function in Heaven? * What is the nature of our new minds, souls, and wills in Heaven? * Whom will we see and know on our first step in Heaven? * What about those we don’t see? Will we grieve for them? And if so, how can Heaven be a place of no tears and weeping? * Just how ‘special’ is the place ‘prepared for you’?

Life is the most important possession we have. Without it, there is nothing. Only by the resurrection at the second coming of Christ will anyone have life after death.

Manifesting Heaven will encourage you in a realm of faith to walk out the truth of scripture in your life. When Jesus was asked for the perfect prayer in Matthew 6:10, one aspect of His response was, "Your kingdom come, your will be done on earth as it is in heaven." Through prayer, kingdom principles and His heart of love; the Lord's heavenly realm is available to us here on earth. Pastor Nash places emphasis on removing every barrier in opposition to manifesting heaven in your life.

Mankind’s first contact with extraterrestrial life led to an incredible revelation. Their last may lead them to extinction. Twenty years have passed since the mysterious Near-Earth Object nicknamed Keanu appeared in the night sky and transported humans from all over Earth into its interior. There they discovered that Keanu was a long-range spaceship—and they were not alone. They joined forces with the aliens called the Architects, who had come from a distant galaxy to seek help in fighting the vicious Reivers. And they defeated them. Or so they thought. For when Keanu reestablished contact with Earth, they learned that the Reivers have taken over the planet, placing most of the population under their dominion. But mankind’s last hope may yet be hidden inside the NEO. And if the men and women still in Keanu cannot find it, humanity will be finished. And the galaxy will be next.

In 1989, The Stone Roses exploded onto the music scene at the forefront of a new wave of music from Manchester. The Roses’ music – an exhilarating mixture of sixties’ pop, rock and dance – made them the UK’s most talked-about group, while their first album, The Stone Roses, is now revered as one of the finest débuts of all time. The band’s flared trousers, baggy t-shirts and floppy fringes were copied by a generation, and their 1990 gig at Spike Island in front of 30,000 people became legendary. Then, with the world at their feet, and a multi-million-dollar record contract signed, the Stone Roses disappeared only to come back 15 years later even bigger and better. Their story truly is one of resurrection.

In early 2019, the Islamic Republic of Iran marked its fortieth anniversary, despite decades of isolation, political pressure, sanctions and war. Observers of its security policies continue to try and make sense of this unlikely endurance. Some view the regime as a purely rational actor, whose national security decisions and military affairs are shaped by the same considerations as in other states. Others believe that it is ideology driving Tehran's strategy. Either way, virtually everyone agrees that the mullahs' policies are fundamentally different from those pursued by their monarchical predecessors. No Conquest, No Defeat offers a historically grounded overview of Iranian national security. Tabatabai argues that the Islamic Republic is neither completely rational nor purely ideological. Rather, its national security policy today is largely shaped by its strategic culture, a product of the country's historical experiences of war and peace. As a result, Iranian strategic thinking is perhaps best characterized by its dynamic yet resilient nature, one that is continually evolving. As the Islamic Republic enters its fifth decade, this book sheds new light on Iran's controversial nuclear and missile programs and its involvement in Afghanistan, Iraq, Lebanon, Syria and Yemen.

Throughout life, you stand at many crossroads, where you have to make a choice--you have to go left or right. For the most part, one convinces oneself that the choices one makes and the decisions one makes are made on the basis of rational and sensible considerations, but often it is our emotions that ultimately make the difference. Other times, it is some external circumstances or coincidences that determine whether one is going to follow the path to the left or to the right. For most people, it doesn't matter much which way they follow; most get where they want to go, perhaps with a few knubs, but rarely life-threatening. In this book, we follow a little Iranian boy--Kioumars--from the age of four until he, as a middle-aged man, writes his memoirs as a Danish citizen in a suburb of Copenhagen. For him, conscious choices, coincidences, or external circumstances have several times meant life or death or vastly different life courses. The book takes us to a newly built neighborhood in Tehran, where we follow family life closely for better and worse, described with a lovely sense of humor. After the revolution, Kioumars flees, and the trip through the mountains to the Turkish border and the wait in Turkey is nerve-wracking. The final destination is Denmark, where he encounters a very different culture in a welfare society that surprises him and presents challenges. In the book, Kioumars looks back on his life and on all the crossroads he has stood by. Several times, coincidences have saved his life; coincidences also led him to Denmark and not to the United States, which was originally his great wish; not wanting to participate in the Iraq War was a conscious choice and led to the escape, and later it was external circumstances that changed Kioumars's life radically as he did not flee but moved from Iran to Denmark. The book is written humorously and unsentimentally but is still experienced as a heartbreaking tale of being a refugee and leaving his homeland and settling into a new culture.
