Travisville

release date: Nov 05, 2019
Travisville
In 1960s Texas, one city has so far avoided the tumult of the Civil Rights movement. Through the efforts of an alliance of black church leaders, a wary peace has been maintained with the city’s white mayor and citizens. But when the mayor partners with a private developer to gentrify the black neighborhood and uproot its residents, and a movement organizer from Atlanta comes to town, the Minister’s Alliance will need to choose between the nonconfrontational status quo and standing up for the interests of their community—and weathering the risks resistance incurs.

The Incredible Death and Revival of William Morgan

release date: Nov 01, 2007
The Incredible Death and Revival of William Morgan
This is the author's second novel, and like the first, also based on a true story. The first one titled, And the Sea Shall Hide Them, actually took place in history perhaps seventy years after the one you are about to read. This story centers around William Morgan, a Virginian living in Batavia, New York. He was a distant relative of the author. Morgan was of an impulsive nature, doing what he thought was the right thing to do. This eventually brought him in contention with the Masonic Order in Batavia, New York in 1826. His long and troublesome life eventually found him isolated on Utila Island in the Western Caribbean. He had been kidnapped! He was one of the first men to begin shipping bananas commercially to the United States, an enterprise that eventually grew into a vast business. Despite these good tidings, which included a loving wife and children, his life was a troubled one. However, his legacy to the small island of Utila was a noteworthy one, having a beneficial blessing on the early settlers of that island.

And the Sea Shall Hide Them

release date: Jan 01, 2005
And the Sea Shall Hide Them
June 30, 1905. The hands of the vessel's clock slowly rise toward midnight. A beautiful, one hundred ton schooner named Olympia makes ready to sail out of the crescent cove of Eastern Harbor, located on a small Caribbean island. The voyage will be one of danger, apprehension and foreboding fear. The dim, quarter moon seems a portent of the terrible things that will take place aboard Captain White Bush's boat. The weather was agreeable, a medium east wind, a pleasant rolling sea and a happy crew and passengers -- eleven in all. The author reconstructs that voyage in detail -- the surprises, the struggles, the tears, the prayers -- and the ensuing horrors! In the tradition of his English ancestors and their fascination with story telling, he gathers some of the guarded tales recounting the episode he heard as a child, then solidifies them in an interview with an "Old Timer." And The Sea Shall Hide Them will carry you along with those unfortunate passengers and crew. His account will show what horrible and fateful things can befall anyone if they happen to be in the wrong place at the wrong time.

A collection of eighteen gay horror stories introduced by Caroline Munro. 'The writing is immensely visual, hauntingly gentle and spine chilling in equal measure. Bewitching and erotic.'
