Marshal "Suicide" Jack Talon -- gambler, gunslinger and vampire -- finds himself on the run and short of blood in the middle of winter in the High Sierras. A preacher offers him the only salvation Jack would ever accept -- a second chance at being human. All Jack has to do is find a woman of ill-repute by the name of Nancy Dancehall, turn her into a vampire, and then hand her over to the sinister preacher. Haunted by the memory of his first kill, Jack refuses. But fate and a pack of wolves bring Jack face-to-face with Nancy and the soiled doves she's 'recruited' from San Francisco. The preacher's found his own recruits -- a campful of vengeful miners out for the blood Jack won in a Faro game. But the biggest threat to Nancy and her girls might be Jack's own growing hunger...

As reggae/dancehall music has become very dominant in our culture, artists and their youthful followers continue to play a huge role in the development of our language, known as patois, as they are constantly coining words and phrases that baffle even older Jamaicans and certainly foreigners. Also as people worldwide swing to our music and tales about our scenic country with its numerous natural attractions continue to seduce everyone who hears about it thus becoming a well -known and greatly sought after tourism destination in the Caribbean, since most Jamaicans do not automatically speak English but only when required, this dictionary is critical to travellers as well music lovers. For you never know when your dream will come through and you not only have the pleasure of rocking to our music but also get the opportunity to visit us.

"In Lies We Trust," reads the banner. This is most often true about the lies we tell ourselves, or are suggested to us as being true for political objectives. The notion of universal entropy, projected through the Big-Bang theory, and its derivative, the Hydrogen Fusion Sun, are glaring examples. The Hydrogen-Sun theory is so finely spun that humanity has tied itself into knots in efforts to replicate the solar hydrogen fusion for power production on Earth. It is said that if the Sun can do it, so can we. The problem is that the Sun is not so powered, but is electrically powered with plasma fusion occurring on its surface. Consequently, decades of large-scale scientific efforts have been wasted by clinging to a myth in science that may have been intentionally created for this effect, which keeps the door closed to the energy abundance in plasma in space. Similar myths have similar effects in the social domain. We may not break free, unless we do so on both fronts. The frame of the story presented here, is that of a fictional, international peace conference organized by the youth of the world, convened in Russia in a city on the Black Sea. The story itself is one of the scenes of the Kaleidoscope of human superlatives that keeps on turning. In the Kaleidoscope Project, the selected stories are gems of numerous types. The one presented here is from Book 2, The Ice Age Challenge, of my epic series of novels The Lodging for the Rose. The Kaleidoscope stories are presented separately, because their specific focus has become increasingly important in the world, for our future. The Kaleidoscope Project is a subsequent feature. I started to write books that I would love, that are filled with a kaleidoscope of superlatives that define the riches of our humanity. My writing project began with two small novels, Flight Without Limits - a science fiction experiment to open the portal to the human superlatives - and a larger novel, Brighter than the Sun - a fictional project to explore the human dimension of the greatest intentional catastrophe that humanity has prepared against itself, termed "thermonuclear war" that is still on the agenda. The larger novel explores against the background of catastrophe, the superlatives of the inner and enduring riches of our humanity. But the work didn't stop there. It just began. It became apparent that the human superlatives are so rich that they are best explored simply by themselves, for their own merit, so that a super-imposed context would tend to dilute them. The result became a series of twelve novels that I have named, The Lodging for the Rose. The work became a kaleidoscope-experience of superlatives, where new vistas of our inner riches come into view with every turn. As one might expect, many of the vistas are precious in themselves, so that it soon became apparent that quite a number of them stand on their own as complete stories and are important to raise up a specific focus that is of critical importance. I cherish these stories. Consequently, I started to share them in different forms, including now in printed form. The separate printing also allows a larger type face to be used.
