Ted Peterson is a sailor. He is a father and a friend, a husband and a romantic, a guitar player and a songwriter, and so much more. Among those close to him, he even bears the affectionate nickname "Uncle Wisdom." There is plenty of wisdom in these pages. There is just as much not knowing too, and that's the part that moves me most. Through his eyes we glimpse the incomprehensible toll of war, from the various calls of duty to the late-night calls from Veterans in trouble. He takes us from wry barstool laughter to fighting back tears, from the immeasurable tragedy of a military family's loss to the startling beauty of human kindness or God's creation. He does it all with an unassuming, world-worn voice and the straight-backed discipline of someone who has served-and continues to serve-others.In this collection of poems, he meets indignities with dignity and discouragement with gentle courage. He reminds us that no person is their label, and no label defines a person.- Rob Seals - songwriter, producer - Co-Founder & Director, The Songwriting School of Los Angeles

Continuing the epic story of the struggle between poor and rich as told in the first volume of The Ecclesiastical Chronicles, Raymond Gordon’s new novel, The Society, returns to the polished pews of St. Patrick’s Church in the village of Abersthwaithe on the small island of Ischalton. Following the scandalous inability of the Board of Advisers to the Vestry to honor their financial commitment to build a new, “improved” church in nearby Brewster’s Village, the Bishop has made the group defunct. Even so, the members who formed the board, along with their newly recruited henchmen, continue their surreptitious plan to eradicate the “stench of serfdom” from St. Patrick’s Church. Personal conflicts, the quest for acceptance, concupiscence, the struggle for control, and “civil war” among the peasants once again cast their dark, sinister shadows over the church, thus proving that although pious humans may have a greater proclivity to moral rectitude, they nevertheless possess an innate and ironic propensity to degeneracy. The Ecclesiastical Chronicles offers a profound and sobering look at how hypocrisy and self-righteousness can destroy the foundation of Christ’s work, resulting in misery for all.

The wise fool, the sensible madman, and the village idiot, traditional characters in European literature, are best-known through Don Quixote. Galdós, Spain's most important novelist after Cervantes, contributed to this corpus with a number of principal characters whose affinity to Cervantes's hero is clearly recognizable. Bly demonstrates that a number of Galdós's secondary characters - the eccentric old men who appear with regular frequency in the realist social novels of his most important period of writing, 1876 to1897 - can be classified as a variant or sub-group of this type.
