The Five Demons You Meet In Hell by Timothy Carter

>> Tuesday, September 30, 2014


Boston Lefebvre, school bully and all around jerk, dies and finds himself in Hell. He must face five Demons, who will confront him with his worst sins. Boston's spiritual rehabilitation leads to an adventure involving Demons, Imps, Scourges, assassins, molten lava, and the two worst people from his life. Oh, and pain. Lots and lots of pain!



Boston Lefebvre, school bully and all around jerk, dies and finds himself in Hell. Not the fire and brimstone place he’d expected, Boston discovers Hell to be a centre for forced spiritual rehabilitation. Each damned soul must face five demons, who in turn will confront them with their five worst sins.

Boston is less than enthusiastic about the process, especially when he discovers he’s being punished for the sins of Tony Smerle, a former friend. Tony, in cooperation with a demon named Rigdis, has found a way to subvert the Hell system, an action that could have devastating consequences.

Faced with the prospect of taking the fall for Tony’s transgressions, Boston fights to set the record straight. His efforts lead him on an adventure involving demons, imps, assassins, cutthroats, and his long dead father, with the stakes being the existence of Hell itself.

About H. Lee Morgan, Jr


I'm Lee,

As a child I've always had a vivid imagination, but it wasn't until I was in a swimming accident and becoming paralyzed due to having my neck broken at the age of 14 that I could bring my imagination to life, through writing. My life has undoubtedly been harsher than others, being forced to live in a wheelchair and all, but my imagination, personality and drive to continue has helped me to write. It's impossible to know if I'd still write if not for being a quadriplegic, but I've come to enjoy writing and sharing my passion and stories with others.

Economics for Smart Citizenship by Mikel Cohick


This book helps people understand the economics that affect them in their daily lives: learning, working, earning, future planning, running a business, penetrating the macroeconomic fog of the media and politicians, and being good citizens. It describes the decision-making process as people try to better themselves and how to set up a society for maximum betterment of its citizens.



Originating as a book for a one-semester course, it is designed for the general reader who is interested in knowing how his or her daily life is affected by economics. The book starts with the basics of good decision making and how a society can be organized to best serve its citizens. It emphasizes that, in order to make yourself better off, it is necessary to make others better off also. Its treatise on markets shows how free trade, unfettered by intrusive government edicts, leads to maximizing society's standard of living. The economics of consumers, businesses, government, international trade, and resource markets make up the micro part of the book. The macro part of the book is organized around the two main problems: inflation and unemployment. This is followed by the examination of policies that could be adopted by government to address these problems. The book concludes with a discussion of economic growth and productivity. The book discusses ideas and has minimized the math.

Shana Tova! High Holiday Recipes from Ninety Years of the Jewish Transcript and JTNews by Joel Magalnick

>> Saturday, September 27, 2014


In celebration of the 90th anniversary of Seattle's Jewish Transcript, we have compiled every High Holiday recipe that has appeared in our newspaper over the years.



With 2014 marking the celebration of 90 years of publication of the Jewish Transcript, the Pacific Northwest's oldest and longest publishing Jewish community newspaper, we decided to take a look back at our history to help you create your High Holiday menu. What you have on your digital reading device is every single High Holiday recipe published in the Jewish Transcript and JTNews (as it's now called) since 1924. As you'll see, there are plenty of years where we published no recipes at all (what on earth did people eat if they didn't have us?), but it's fascinating to look at how tastes have changed over the decades. Though sometimes, it seems, they didn't change at all. If you're in the mood for a honey cake, or a recipe for somebody else's grandmother's tzimmes, or even a simple challah, we've got them all here — sometimes in multiples.

What I'd Teach Your Horse by Keith Hosman

>> Friday, September 26, 2014


If you broke your horse to saddle and rode it for the first time today, this book is where you'd start tomorrow. Likewise, if you have an older horse that needs re-training, you'd start here. This book is a roadmap to building the foundation every horse needs, regardless of age, breed or background, regardless the type of riding for which it will eventually be used.



Question: "I just bought a horse. What do I do now?"

Answer: "Buy my book, 'What I'd Teach Your Horse.'"



If I had a dollar for every email I get asking "what to do" to make a riding horse out of the mare Uncle Emo just traded for the old RV - or how to retrain a horse that's grown rusty - or some version on either theme, I'd be the world's first gazillionaire. With the publication of this book then, I'm hoping to grab that distinction.



If you broke your horse to saddle and rode it for the first time yesterday, this book (chapter 1) is where you'd start tomorrow. If you have an older horse and you've taught him everything you know and he still don't know nothin', this book is where you'd start, (chapter 2). It's a roadmap to building the foundation every horse needs, regardless of age, breed or background, regardless of what you've got ultimately planned for that horse.



Afterwards, when your horse knows this book back to front, go train for barrels, roping, eventing, jumping or dressage. But today, basics are basics.



Section I is the stuff your horse needs to know. Section II is the stuff (the theory) you need to know. Practice the first handful of chapters in order, as written. Beyond that, you should feel free to mix and match depending on your needs or abilities. Some chapters are dependent upon others - but in those cases, I've spelled out necessary prerequisites.
