Ink Against the Devil:Luther and His Opponents Harry Loewen
Two years have passed since the dramatic destruction of Count Dracula. And Jonathan Harker has settled down to a quiet life as a junior partner in a law firm. But his reputation is about to catch up with him. As word of his abilities spreads, clients are turning to him for help with problems which appear to have an involvement in the supernatural. His first case takes him to Cornwall, where the Haywood family are worried about the imminent marriage of their daughter, Flora, to the elusive Sir Owen Velland. Flora had been engaged for two years to the amiable Doctor Goodwin, before suddenly breaking off the relationship in favour of Sir Owen. Yet Sir Owen had been recently widowed under very suspicious circumstances and rumours are circulating in the small Cornish town that his unnatural powers and abilities may have some involvement with devil worship. Are these rumours just idle gossip? Or is there a dark truth behind what people are saying? Can Harker use his knowledge of unusual and the occult to befriend Sir Owen and discover his secrets? Or has he come up against an opponent even deadlier than Dracula himself? Devil May Care sees the return of Jonathan Harker, the hero of Bram Stoker´s classic Dracula, in a chilling new historical mystery series. Tony Evans is a full-time writer. His other publications include the Hester Lynton Mystery series and adaptations of classic novels [for the ´´Real Reads” series]. He lives with his wife in the Yorkshire Dales. 1. Language: English.

Lex Luger, wrestling megasensation and three-time world heavyweight champion, ruled the ring for years as ´´The Total Package.´´ Whether he was making a dramatic entrance from a helicopter, defeating champ Hulk Hogan, or sculpting a near-perfect physique, Lex was on top of his game. Yet backstage, he was wrestling with addictions to sex, drugs, and alcohol - things he clung to even when his mistress died suddenly of a drug overdose and Lex went to jail. There, Lex faced the truth: he was losing the fight for his life. And still awaiting him was his most brutal opponent yet, when the wrestling champ found himself helplessly paralyzed from the neck down. In Wrestling with the Devil, Lex Luger reveals never-before-told stories from his career, his struggle with personal demons, and how, through unexpected faith, grace, and redemption, he overcame all odds to fight the only battle that really matters. 1.

Harry Beltway, idealistic young conservative and grandson of a famous evangelist, has just come back from a two-years tour as a missionary when he is persuaded to join the campaign staff of Tim Duncannon, an arch-conservative television commentator who has set his sights on the Republican nomination for presidency so that he can build a barbed wire fence around America. As a candidate, Duncannon wows conservative fundamentalist Americans with his promises to protect them from Zulus and wetbacks and his reassurances that school prayer will someday return and abortionists will disappear. Harry must run interference when Duncannon´s campaign starts to fall apart after accusations of campaign bullying (Duncannon´s brothers are harassing and beating up his opponents), sexual misconduct (Duncannon is discovered having semi-weekly rendezvous with a mysterious blonde), and devil worship (Duncannon is caught channeling the spirit of Richard Nixon, his former boss). Along the way Harry starts a confusing love affair with a fellow campaign worker that turns out to be, literally, a drag. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Arte Johnson.

The true story of the game that never should have happened. Something was happening to basketball. In the wartime fall of 1943, at the little-known North Carolina College for Negroes, Coach John McLendon was on the verge of changing the game forever. Within six months his Eagles would become the highest-scoring college basketball team in America, a fast-breaking, hard-pressing juggernaut that would shatter its opponents by as many as 60 points per game. The last student of James Naismith, basketball´s inventor, McLendon had opened the door to its future. Across town, at Duke University, the best basketball squad on campus wasn´t the Blue Devils but an all-white military team from the Duke medical school. Comprised of former college stars from across the country, they dismantled every team they faced, including the Duke varsity. They were prepared to play anyone - that was until an audacious invitation arrived, one that was years ahead of anything the South had ever seen before. Based on years of research, The Secret Game is a story of courage and determination and of an incredible, long-buried moment in the nation´s sporting past. The riveting true account of a remarkable season, it is the story of how a handful of forgotten college basketball players not only changed the game forever but also helped to usher in a new America.
