Who is the sockless man?
Find out in this satirical peek at justice in Los Angeles. During a domestic violence case, the author and his juror peers must sift conflicting evidence to uncover the truth: did the defendant strike his wife, or was she a coked-up loon who made eerie noises? What happened to the defendant’s socks? Did a juror overhear the defendant ordering pizza–and how did that affect the final outcome?
Can annoyed strangers render a fair verdict? Be a fly on the wall inside the jury room and witness the chaos as twelve strangers attempt to render justice with one eye on the clock. This short non-fiction essay is the mandatory minimum you need for a fast fun read.
A Case for Mary: An Orthodox Evangelism for Curious Protestants
by David Knox
Mary was a virgin, but did she stay a virgin after Jesus born?
Did she live a sinless life?
In his debut work, David Knox explores these and other questions that have become points of contention between Protestants and Orthodox Christians.
Using scripture, history, culture, and linguistics, A Case for Mary shines a light on how, and more importantly why they may not be so unbelievable after all.
Training for War: An Essay
by Tom Kratman *FREE*
An essay and manual on training for war by retired Army lieutenant colonel Tom Kratman, creator of the popular Carrera military science fiction series, including novels A Desert Called Peace, Carnifex, Come and Take Them, and The Rods and the Axe.
Kratman’s contention: an army is for winning wars.
And to win wars, you have to train men (and some women) to be warriors, not police or social workers.
Herein Kratman gives guidance and a practical plan of action to officers tasked with training troops—advice than might be equally applied to other crucial training situations, as well.
The Biographies of John Charles Fremont
Hans G. Schantz
A Brief Historical Monograph
Rarely has a character appeared on the American scene of greater color and controversy than John Charles Fremont.
Dubbed “The Pathfinder” for having conducted some of the first rigorous scientific explorations of the American west, emigrants used his maps and reports as their guide to Oregon and California.
Fremont was instrumental in the military campaigns which secured California for the United States, only to be arrested and court-martialed for mutiny and insubordination.
Nominated the young Republican party’s first candidate for president, Fremont lost the 1856 election in a bitterly contested campaign.
Appointed one of four major-generals at the outbreak of the Civil War, Fremont was placed in command of the Department of the West. Succeeding in holding wavering Missouri for the Union, Lincoln relieved him of his command amid allegations of widespread corruption.
Having earned a fortune from his California gold holdings, he was impoverished by railway speculation. Fremont’s life was a serious of glorious triumphs and dismal defeats. Through it all, he remained a figure adored by some and despised by others.
This short monograph considers the development of the Fremont biography, analyzing works about the life and career of John Charles Fremont in their historical context. The term “biography” will be used in a wide sense, to include works which may deal with only limited aspects of Fremont’s career.
