Hermia is in love with Lysander but her father forbids them to marry, insisting that she marries Demetrius instead, whom Hermia’s friend Helena loves. Hermia and Lysander escape to the woods, pursued by Demetrius and Helena. However there is trouble in the woods because the king and queen of the fairies, Oberon and Titania, have quarrelled. To spite Titania, Oberon instructs the mischievous Puck to squeeze the juice of a magic flower into her eyes while she sleeps, so that she falls in love with the first thing she sees when she wakes.

The Six Miracles of Calvary: Unveiling the Story of Easter
The Six Miracles of Calvary gives insight into the miracles surrounding the crucifixion of Christ. Why was there a tremendous earthquake? What was the meaning of the three hours of thick darkness? Why was the temple veil torn in two? Why did graves open, and corpses come to life, and Christ's graveclothes remain undisturbed following His resurrection? Dan Schaeffer has skillfully updated William Nicholson's 1927 classic for today's seeking audience.

Significant Objects

Collects the results of a literary experiment in which a best-selling or popular author wrote a short fictional prose story about an object on eBay, raising its value; the profit from the object’s sale then went to charity.

Please note:  In the spirit of discovery that the book promotes, this product has two different jackets (pink or blue) pictured above.  The customer will be shipped at random and will not be able to specify one jacket or the other. 


SIGNIFICANT OBJECTS: A Literary and Economic Experiment

Can a great story transform a worthless trinket into a significant object? The Significant Objects project set out to answer that question once and for all, by recruiting a highly impressive crew of creative writers to invent stories about an unimpressive menagerie of items rescued from thrift stores and yard sales.

That secondhand flotsam definitely becomes more valuable: sold on eBay, objects originally picked up for a buck or so sold for thousands of dollars in total — making the project a sensation in the literary blogosphere along the way.

But something else happened, too: The stories created were astonishing, a cavalcade of surprising responses to the challenge of manufacturing significance. Who would have believed that random junk could inspire so much imagination?

The founders of the Significant Objects project, that’s who. This book collects 100 of the finest tales from this unprecedented creative experiment; you’ll never look at a thrift-store curiosity the same way again.

The Experiment: America's Insanity by Design

As a young man, the author began his career as a Commodity Futures Broker on the floor of the Chicago Mercantile Exchange, full of promise and with a seemingly bright future in front of him.


However, early on his mental health issues forced him to end his tenure as a broker, after a break places him in a psychiatric hospital ward. In the hospital, he begins a lifelong struggle with misdiagnosis by psychiatrists and their use of psychotropic drugs, as they refuse to accept the underlying cause of his problems.

Is the United States Federal Government experimenting on the author? While patients with mental illnesses often believe this, in this case, there is a persuasive argument that points to government involvement.

Intended for mature audience, those readers who have an open mind will find the book compelling.

He holds a Bachelor’s degree in Economics.
