Edited by Leslie Mitchell at G2 Freelance Editing and re-released 11/22/13. The world didn’t end with a bang, it didn’t go out in a ball of fire and fury, nor did it end in ice. But in some strange way, ice was the end; or maybe it was the beginning of something more. When I find myself suddenly alone in a world that was alive only moments before, I flee into the streets of my town in search of my family. Panicked by the immobile people surrounding me, I'm almost captured by the monsters hunting me until Cade steps in to rescue me. Dark and distant, most people in school are wary of Cade, yet oddly fascinated by him. We'd been close as children, but it has been years since I've had any real contact with him. As our situation becomes even more perilous, I find myself struggling to come to terms with my past, my terrifying new reality, and my growing love for a boy that is powerful, mysterious, and perhaps even more frightening than the aliens hunting us. Aliens that want more than our lives, they also want our blood. Recommended reading order of the complete Ravening Series: Ravenous (Book 1) Taken Over (Book 2) Reclamation (Book 3) Young Adult. This book contains some language, violence, and sexual situations. Recommended for ages sixteen and up. Cover art by EbookLaunch

The long-awaited new novel by America's master playwright and activist—a radical reimagining of our history and our hopes and fears Forty years in the making, The American People embodies Larry Kramer's vision of his beloved and accursed homeland. As the founder of ACT UP and the author of Faggots and The Normal Heart, Kramer has decisively affected American lives and letters. Here, as only he can, he tells the heartbreaking and heroic story of one nation under a plague, contaminated by greed, hate, and disease yet host to transcendent acts of courage and kindness. In this magisterial novel's sweeping first volume, which runs up to the 1950s, we meet prehistoric monkeys who spread a peculiar virus, a Native American shaman whose sexual explorations mutate into occult visions, and early English settlers who live as loving same-sex couples only to fall victim to the forces of bigotry. George Washington and Alexander Hamilton revel in unexpected intimacies, and John Wilkes Booth's motives for assassinating Abraham Lincoln are thoroughly revised. In the twentieth century, the nightmare of history deepens as a religious sect conspires with eugenicists, McCarthyites, and Ivy Leaguers to exterminate homosexuals, and the AIDS virus begins to spread. Against all this, Kramer sets the tender story of a middle-class family outside Washington, D.C., trying to get along in the darkest of times. The American People is a work of ribald satire, prophetic anger, and dazzling imagination. It is an encyclopedic indictment written with outrageous love.

Dr Dorothy Shepherd had wide experience both in Harley Street and in clinics in the poorer parts of London. Although she had leanings towards homoeopathy during her student years, it was not until she visited Dr J.T. Kent in the U.S.A., and experienced great benefit from this therapy that she fully adopted this method of treatment in her practice. Having embarked upon a career as a homoeopath she studied the subject deeply and the more she learned the more she became convinced that it is the finest method of dealing with every type of ailment. Being a true healer she believed that every sufferer should know of homoeopathy and in order to make it more widely known she began writing a much acclaimed series of books, the best known of which is Magic of the Minimum Dose and this book, More Magic of the Minimum Dose.
