New Bremen, Ohio, was mostly like countless other small farm towns in that part of the state in the 1950s. The primary business at the time was farming—corn, wheat, hay, alfalfa, and soybeans, along with some dairy farming—and there were always cows and pigs in the fields. And it’s where author Robert Gilberg spent the first twenty-two years of his life.
In The Last Road Rebel, he shares what it was like growing up in that small town. In this memoir, Gilberg admits he is probably lucky to have survived his childhood; some of his friends did not. He is also lucky to have met the right girl at the right time who unknowingly gave him the push needed for him to climb out of an early life with a limited future. The stories—some hilarious, some horribly sad, and some just fun—tell of a young person who experienced the tortures of found and lost teen love, knew the disappointment of poor preparation for life after school, and finally looked himself in the mirror and decided it was time to get out of that place.
Against the backdrop of the times, when the sounds on the radio were changing from Perry Como and Patti Page to Bill Haley and the Comets, Elvis, and Little Richard, The Last Road Rebel recalls the times, places, people, events, and experiences that have stayed with Gilberg forever.
Lileon is a beautiful land that bursts forth in vivid, exceptional colors. Tall, vibrant, jewel-like grass dances in a sparkling wind against an azure sky. The people of Lileon live simple, peaceful lives that were made all the more calm when they rejected the technology that once defined them.
But the Lileons are not alone.
Walking among them are the Shadow People, black-and-white apparitions who move in and out of Lileon. Shimmering windows provide the only glimpses between the worlds—and in an instant—one of these portals will change everything the people of both worlds believe.
Like the rest of his people, Cullen Fairchild, the son of Reia Richard Fairchild, the ruler of Lileon, knows nothing of the Shadow People. When he locks eyes with a beautiful woman through one of the ephemeral portals, he is astonished and intrigued.
Katherine Carr, the woman from another world, is equally intrigued by her glimpse of the handsome blond man who keeps appearing and disappearing. He seems familiar somehow. They should never have met, let alone fallen in love, but now nothing will keep the lovers apart. They seemed destined for one another, but when Cullen tells Kat of Lileon, it’s too much for her to believe.
He’s from a different world? Literally?
Cullen’s attention is distracted by the plotting of his uncle Emile, who dreams of making his brother, Richard, pay for past crimes. The waiting over, Emile puts his plan into action.
In the end, will Kat believe Cullen? Will Cullen be able to stop Emile from taking over not only Lileon but Kat’s world as well? Will the invisible boundary between their worlds keep Cullen and Kat together—or keep them apart?
Joshua is small for his age. He has been bullied relentlessly for years, and all of his friends have drifted away from him. Eve is a pretty girl who has just been recruited into the popular girls’ clique. The two couldn’t be more different.
On the first day of eighth grade, their final year of middle school, their lives intersect when they are paired together as lab partners in Science class. At first reluctant just to be around him, Eve soon realizes that Joshua is nothing like the boy she’d been warned about, and through their partnership, their school’s darkest secret is revealed to her.
The relationship that forms between these unlikeliest of friends will lead them both on a path of self-discovery, a dangerous path that will teach them both the true meaning of friendship, loyalty, and most of all, love … a relationship that will not only change both of their lives forever, but the complexion of their entire school.

When police agencies began grabbing more power in the 1960s, it began a vicious cycle of relying on imprisonment to solve socio-political, financial, and mental health problems.
The reality is that this approach hasn’t worked, and it’s actually diminished our quality of freedom. Meanwhile, police officers have begun to look at citizens not as people to serve and protect but as enemies.
Tim Anderson takes an in-depth look into how the misguided prison-industrial complex unfairly targets minorities, the mentally ill, and the poor. It supports the argument made by Angela Davis, who said, “Prisons give the appearance of performing a magic trick. However, prisons don’t make problems disappear—they make people disappear.”
Neoliberals continue to try to convince the public that we need to equip our police officers with weapons that make them seem more like military ground troops. But if we continue down this course, we’ll all just be one more target to be eliminated in The United States of Incarceration.

Tired of Being Black offers a fresh perspective on the struggles and stereotypes of the black race from a man who personified most of them growing up and then turned his life around to become a public school teacher, a basketball coach, and a positive role model to hundreds of students and athletes.
In his book, Jordan draws heavily from his experiences growing up in an urban black neighborhood largely defined by gunshots, violence, stolen cars, teen pregnancy, and welfare. Raised with two brothers and a sister by a single Mom, Rodney disrespected and rebelled against all authority figures in his life, eventually finding himself forced out of the house at the age of twelve. Jordan was faced with transforming his life or continuing on the path of so many he knew—the path to prison.
With refreshing honesty, Tired of Being Black exposes negative stereotypes that black males like the young Rodney Jordan often perpetuate through their actions, reactions and lack of actions. The book’s free verse format makes it an easy--but powerful-- read for young men and women of all races who want to understand how cultural perceptions can be formed through the eyes of those looking in from the outside.

The origin of life, particularly human life, is one of today’s most intensely debated subjects. Ironically, that debate has only two socially acceptable sides: Darwinism and Creationism. Darwinists support the detailed observations and speculations of a brilliant naturalist, while Creationists support the various interpreters of the Bible’s scriptural teachings. Despite the passion and intellect exhibited by both sides as they defend their positions, millions of people remain unconvinced by the arguments of either. For those individuals, it is time to present a viable, comprehensive, third option, Rationalism, which is the formation of ideas and opinions based on evidence and reasoning rather than on secular authority or divine revelation. Everything You Know Is Wrong stakes out a solid, defendable, entirely new position in the debate about life origins and human origins. That position is bolstered by an astonishing array of scientific facts either unmentioned or conspicuously ignored by the two currently entrenched camps. By utilizing such a fact-based format, this book’s presentation of Rationalism offers a far more convincing explanation for the origins of life, and particularly of human life, than Darwinism or Creationism ever have….or ever will.
