  • Bella Jewel

    They say there's a fine line between love and hate. There is. I fell in love with a monster. He used me. He destroyed me. He made a fool out of me. I didn't know it at the start. You never do. You think you have found the man of your dreams. You think nothing could break you apart. How wrong you are. I loved Marcus Tandem with everything that was me. To him, I was just a business deal, a way to keep something he'd worked hard for. He never had any intentions of returning my affections. He never wanted me in his life. But I wanted him in mine. When you fall in love with the devil, you expect to get burned. Marcus burned me. He consumed me. He devastated me. Somewhere inside, I knew...read more

    You know how it went for me. You know what he did. You know the fire he left inside my soul when he crushed me into a thousand tiny pieces. Since Marcus, my life has been a blur of emptiness. Since Marcus there has been nothing. I'm alone, my Mom is dwindling and I feel nothing but emptiness. I work long, I work hard, but why? There's no longer anything to fight for. I know I have to face him. I know I have to go back. To fix my life, I have to break my ties to him. Seeing Marcus again will destroy me, but it's time to finish this. I don't expect the bitter, twisted emotions I'll feel when I see him again, and when I lose everything once more, because of him, the only thing on my mind...read more

  • Samuel Goldman

    Nationalism is on the rise across the Western world, serving as a rallying cry for voters angry at the unacknowledged failures of globalization that has dominated politics and economics since the end of the Cold War. In After Nationalism, Samuel Goldman trains a sympathetic but skeptical eye on the trend, highlighting the deep challenges that face any contemporary effort to revive social cohesion at the national level. Noting the obstacles standing in the way of basing any unifying political project on a singular vision of national identity, Goldman highlights three pillars of mid-twentieth-century nationalism, all of which are absent today: the social dominance of Protestant Christianity,...read more

    The Classic Case of Alien Abduction Rereleased with a New Afterword for a New Generation The Andreasson Affair is more than just a classic example of a close encounter. It is-to use the jargon of ufologists-a case of such 'high strangeness' that even the most open-minded investigators were at first inclined to dismiss it out of hand. Yet it has become probably the best documented case of its kind to date, the subject of an intensive twelve-month investigation conducted for the Center for UFO Studies (CUFOS) that involved, among other things, the recording of large quantities of testimony given under hypnosis, extensive lie detector testing of witnesses, detailed analysis of corroborative...read more
