In May, 1921, Joseph Rini and five other men of Italian descent drove from New Orleans to Independence, Louisiana, in a stolen car to attempt the late-night robbery of an Independence bank. During the confused events of that night, a local businessman was shot by an unknown assailant, and the six men were shortly thereafter captured and charged with murder, largely on the basis of circumstantial evidence. They were found guilty. When this verdict was appealed and the state supreme court reversed it on a technicality, a second trial in May, 1922, ended with an identical decision and sentence. A series of fruitless appeals followed, and on May 9, 1924, the prisoners were hanged in Amite City—the nation’s only execution of six men for the murder of one. Using court transcripts, newspaper accounts, and interviews, John Baiamonte recounts the dramatic and often moving story of these six men and their trial, which in its day was to become a national and international cause célèbre. He explores the social prejudices of the day, particularly the popular assumption that any criminal activity involving Italians was part of a plot by the Mafia. Fear of Italian gagsters, especially from a tightly organized Mafia, had been rampant in southern Louisiana since the 1890s, as was prejudice against the hardworking law-abiding Sicilian immigrants who had settled in large numbers in Tangipahoa Parish, where these events took place. “Bloody Tangipahoa” had long been notorious for violence, particularly against minorities. Moreover, the parish judicial system at that time, the trial judge, and the state Board of Pardons, which reviewed the Italians’ appeal, were thought to be involved with the Ku Klux Klan. Even the governor, John M. Parker, was one of the leaders of a mob that murdered eleven Italians suspected of Maria affiliation in New Orleans in 1891. Baiamonte also examines the mood of the courtroom, the pressures put upon the lawyers, the jury, and the witnesses to convict the six—despite the fact that the prosecution’s only witness to the shooting failed to identify any of the defendants and no witness could place the defendants closer than three miles from Independence on the night of the murder. Everyone became a participant in the courtroom, even the spectators. They applauded when new evidence against the defendants was introduced. In cameos of each of the convicted men, Baiamonte describes moods and actions. Joseph Bocchio, one of the condemned, read Shakespeare and wrote poems, which were published in the local paper. Spirit of Vengeance affords an intriguing view of a tumultuous period in Louisiana history, and the six men whose vain struggle to survive brought them international attention.

So, this is my first venture into science fiction, at least for writing it. I've been a huge sci-fi fan all my life: I've seen every Star Trek episode ever made, many of my all-time favorite movies are sci-fi Alien, Predator, A Clockwork Orange, 2001: A Space Odyssey, et. al.. However, I never thought I'd write write it. I've always written fantasy, and fantasy is all I've ever written until now. I have finally entered the arena of sci-fi as a writer, although there are those who think this is more fantasy in space than true sci-fi. Not that that's a terrible thing... So, in any event, Garm ap Avanon is the third and final (?) mortal incarnation of the Spirit of Vengeance. His first was in ancient Rome. In the second, he was a rogue adventurer who lived in the 19th century and traveled all over Asia, Africa and Europe. And now, in his 29th century incarnation he is a rogue adventurer yet again, a world-class martial artists with few if any equals. But, impressive as that obviously is, it's going to take a lot more than that. For he must face not only the unforgiving realities of Vulturnus a savage, primal world that could be a near duplicate of Earth in the Mesozoic Era, dinosaurs and all on the one hand but also, on the other, the forces of a powerful, merciless monarch hell-bent on carving out in the cosmos an empire like that his ancestors, the Conquistadors, carved out on Earth centuries before.

Real World Application of the Judeo-Christian faith for the Military, Intelligence, and Law Enforcement communities. Principles and guidelines for those serving in all nations and cultures. The Lord God says “Thou shalt not kill”, yet kill we do. Cain killed Abel. Criminals steal, destroy, and kill. Soldiers kill the enemy. The enemy kills us. Then comes the day you pull the trigger and send someone into eternity. You did what must be done. Some say it had to be done, but you still sinned. Others say it’s all a sin and should not be done it all. But, where does that leave you? This book has the answers. Is “Thou shalt not kill” really that cut and dry? Are there Biblical precedents or provisions for Christians to do what is necessary in the line of duty without sinning? Is doing your duty, to God and Country, the dirty work, really a sin? No, it’s just the opposite. What God authorizes and the support He provides will surprise, encourage, and empower you. Minsters of Vengeance Gives Biblical guidance during undercover ops: for lying, stealing, sabotage, and more. Looks at subjects like lethal force authority, and different religious views of warfare. Draws a blueprint for prayer and a covenant mindset toward the enemy and for yourself. Discusses PTSD; concepts of mental, emotional and physical healing, help, and prevention. Examines spiritual gifts and help from the Holy Spirit and angels for the dirty work. Tackles the Problem of Evil and presents a Biblical Just War Theory or Doctrine of Violence.

In early 1815, Secretary of State James Monroe reviewed the treaty with Britain that would end the War of 1812. The United States Navy was blockaded in port; much of the army had not been paid for nearly a year; the capital had been burned. The treaty offered an unexpected escape from disaster. Yet it incensed Monroe, for the name of Great Britain and its negotiators consistently appeared before those of the United States. "The United States have acquired a certain rank amongst nations, which is due to their population and political importance," he brazenly scolded the British diplomat who conveyed the treaty, "and they do not stand in the same situation as at former periods." Monroe had a point, writes Troy Bickham. In The Weight of Vengeance, Bickham provides a provocative new account of America's forgotten war, underscoring its significance for both sides by placing it in global context. The Napoleonic Wars profoundly disrupted the global order, from India to Haiti to New Orleans. Spain's power slipped, allowing the United States to target the Floridas; the Haitian slave revolt contributed to the Louisiana Purchase; fears that Britain would ally with Tecumseh and disrupt the American northwest led to a pre-emptive strike on his people in 1811. This shifting balance of power provided the United States with the opportunity to challenge Britain's dominance of the Atlantic world. And it was an important conflict for Britain as well. Powerful elements in the British Empire so feared the rise of its former colonies that the British government sought to use the War of 1812 to curtail America's increasing maritime power and its aggressive territorial expansion. And by late 1814, Britain had more men under arms in North America than it had in the Peninsular War against Napoleon, with the war with America costing about as much as its huge subsidies to European allies. Troy Bickham has given us an authoritative, lucidly written global account that transforms our understanding of this pivotal war.

Half-elf Syreene knows she is destined for more than the mundane life of a schoolgirl. Though she has no elemental control, unlike Cabil, her powerful flame wielding brother, she yearns to train and join the ranks to defend her kind from disappearing. And they are. Elves are going missing daily, their numbers dwindling fast. But with Cabil intent on keeping her under lock and key where she can be 'safe,' Syreene fears her life will be spent hiding from the demons who killed her parents, watching as they swallow one town after another.When a stranger from her past stumbles through her door, Syreene jumps at the opportunity to dig into what really happened all those years ago. Had her parents been killed in the demon war, or had they been hunted, executed, and if so... how did she survive? Warrior priest Narus brings with him a flood of memories that hint at so much more than she had ever assumed. And a warning of what may come.With districts falling to demons and Cabil off fighting with the army, Syreene and Narus begin training, hoping together they can find answers and a way to seal the enemy below before both races fall to the demon horde. But can an untested elfin schoolgirl, a pyrotech warrior with a history of losing control, and a priest with secrets that haunt him really turn the demon tide that threatens to drown the world?(Blurb: Marni MacRae)
