Kaye Trilby and her ex-husband, world-famous author Samuel Cabral, vowed to fight for their rekindled love in rain or shine. They didn’t realize they’d be caught in a deluge so quickly. A near-fatal skydiving accident shows Kaye how her reckless behavior affects the ones she loves. But while she knows Samuel is afraid to lose her again, she isn’t ready to give up the thrill of the wild backcountry. Something darker is slipping into Samuel’s mind, though. The specters of his past are re-emerging. His polish is deteriorating, just as all of Hollywood is bracing for his blockbuster book-to-movie adaptation. When he appears on Kaye’s doorstep late one night in a rumpled tuxedo, erratic and agitated, it seems that romance with her ex might be her biggest leap yet. A string of failed relationships has pushed Samuel to the brink, the fall-out leaving him in a dark place—a place where Kaye is powerless to help him. She is reluctantly drawn back into Samuel’s glittering and backbiting world of celebrity, all the while clinging to the steadfast peaks of home.

In this thought-provoking new book, Bruce Lerro offers a speculative reconstruction of the sacred beliefs and practices of cultures existing between 30,000 and 500 B.C.E. Lerro describes how material changes in various social formations including hunting-gathering bands and horticulturalists in villages were responsible for the shift from magic to realism, from the belief in earth spirits to faith in sky gods. Drawing from such diverse theorists as Marx and Engels, Vygotsky, Piaget, and George Herbert Mead, Lerro critiques and transforms mechanical, humanistic, new age, and countercultural perspectives on the history of sacred traditions. This study of comparative religion and mythology has important applications for the fields of archaeology, evolutionary anthropology, sociology, political science, and comparative psychology."

If the visitors to Earth are really aliens from distant worlds why would they be buzzing about for at least 5,000 years or more? The answer to that is rather 'simple' they are not really aliens, but our ancestors, who originated on this planet, as a number of ancient texts and myths claim. In fact careful trawling through the ancient sources reveals numerous surprising details. For example; ours is the sixth civilization on this planet, since over one million years ago, and during the seventh the guided evolution of mankind is to be completed. The fourth civilization, that was around between roughly 400,000 to 300,000 years ago, migrated to space to escape the ecological roller coaster, perpetuated by mankind. In space they created six cyclopean space habitats that were connected to Earth by an immense space elevator, and the process of their construction is illustrated in global myths. The destruction of these space based structures was initiated about 26,000 years ago during The War of the Gods, also repeatedly mentioned in myths, during which all life on Earth was destroyed. Yet this race survived in their space going ships, thousands of kilometers in size, and within several millennia, they terra-formed the planet and gradually returned all life to it. And because their homes were either destroyed in space, or crashed on the planet, many of their inhabitants also had to return. But separated by hundreds of thousands of years of evolution, the DNA of the Sky People and of the Surface People, whom they had helped to survive, had to be mutually 'adjusted', a process described in fair detail by ancient sources as well, and resulted in the confused idea of the genetic Adam and Eve.

In Native American history, there are many legends about UFOs, gods and aliens. There has always been a connection between Native Americans and beings from other parts of the universe, referred to as Star People. Perhaps due to familiarity with celestial fixtures, it has been easier for Native Americans to relate events they have experienced on earth with things such as the formation of the Pleiades. The experience of tribal individuals with the Pleiades is featured quite proximately in legends across many tribes including Cherokee, Onondaga, Lakota and others. It is not hard to believe they would identify an event with a star, being the nature and history of tribes was to exist outdoors. The night sky would be paid much more attention by one who did not live indoors. Regardless of the tribe or the whether the interaction is through a god or star people, there is proof that the ancient people of North America believed they have been visited by unexplainable beings from the heavens. The stories in the collection tell of many different tribes and their experiences and the outcome of walking with these beings.

The last quarter of the nineteenth century witnessed the practical development of the airship, the lighter-than-air flying machine, which offered the first real means of aerial navigation, and thus realised the age old dream of mastery of the air. Throughout Europe and America, aviation pioneers began to construct machines that would provide a safe and reliable means of aerial transport. Aerial navigation, it was believed, would 'shrink' the world, improve communications between nations, and bring about a bright new age in human affairs. In both Europe and America, 'air-mindedness' became a symbol of the triumph of humankind over the physical environment. This was particularly so in Germany where Count von Zeppelin developed a number of reliable and powerful airships which by the end of the first decade of the new century were operating a regular passenger service between German cities. But parallel to these visions of a future technological utopia, was a darker strand of thought: how would the flying machine affect future warfare, was this the ultimate weapon that would bring about the destruction of civilization and the end of humankind? Such thinking culminated in 1908 in H.G.Wells' bleak novel, The War in the Air, in which the struggle for supremacy between the world's aerial navies brings about a new dark age. The German Zeppelin particularly aroused great anxiety and in Britain resulted in the so-called 'Zeppelin Panic' and which reinforced the growing Anglo-German antagonism. The first stumbling steps towards creating an aerial weapon during the Great War, seemed to confirm the dark foreboding of Wells and his followers. Yet despite the events of the war, the post-war world saw the rebirth of optimism and by the 1920s the aeroplane and airship, were still largely seen as agents of human progress and improvement, powerful symbols of modernity and a positive indicator of a nation's scientific and technological excellence. Given the technical limitations of the aeroplane, many argued that the future belonged to the airship, and in Britain, Germany, America and Italy, considerable attention was lavished on developing trans-global machines that would carry passengers and freight, explore the undeveloped regions, and fly the flag for national achievement: the American Navy airships and polar exploration, the German trans-Atlantic passenger routes, and the British attempts to develop giant airships for the imperial air routes. Michael Paris's book offers a popular history of the airship era from the literary visions of the later nineteenth century, through the practical stage of development in the twentieth century when the airship became a reality and was used for a variety of purposes, to the 1930s when, in a series of spectacular disasters, the airship dream was finally shattered.

Can we logically combine recent research on human origins with ancient legends of floods, paradise lost, and cloud clad gods destroying civilizations? Yes, says author Alan Daniel, who has thoughtfully joined key primordial legends with mitochondrial DNA research, archeological and anthropological finds, and geological evidence in Tracking Ancient Legends. DNA evidence shows a small band of humans crossed out of Africa into Eurasia about 100,000 BC; however, why is lost to the primordial mists. But the why may be answered by primeval legends overlooked until now. The author theorizes that prehistoric legends may explain the flight from Africa. The model set forth is fascinating, as well as epic in scope. Competing theories are examined, including the ancient astronaut concepts, and the foundations of theory itself. Are aliens from other worlds the source of our legends, or is something much more earthly and surprising the groundwork of our legendary past?

"Sexual Snakes, Winged Maidens and Sky Gods is a collective homage to Claude Levi-Strauss who marked his 100th birthday in November this year, 2008. Edited by Serge Dunis and with a preface by Jean Guiart, the book brings together a constellation of twelve international writers, including Ben Finney and Ward Goodenough who, in their various specialist spheres, give us their individual interpretations of Pacific mythology. From Papua New Guinea to Easter Island, and spanning Micronesia, Island Melanesia and Western, as well as Eastern, Polynesia comes to us their multivoiced chorus to celebrate this ocean-covered third of the globe." -- Publisher.
