This is not 52nd Street. The rich, white academics will no longer be given their structured, easy-to-listen-to jazz. This is Milton’s Playhouse. This is the heart of music. Structure – time – form and proper scales are dead here. This is the place that jazz progresses. 52nd Street is stale and lifeless. The bridge to 52nd Street has been burned down. This is Improvisational Writing. It lives through every typo – misspelling – misuse and grammatical mistake. It is music without sound. Without measures. Without Scales. Without time. Without prisons. It is a hope to give life to something that has become so confined it can no longer breathe. It may be one continuous mistake. But it is honest – true – uncompromising and unconfined. In a world that has a million bookshelves lined with street maps to 52nd Street, this is a fresh note. It may be a flat note, nonetheless, it is a note.

A thousand steps from the farm to the blue black highway, the adventure continues¿ In the sequel to his highly acclaimed first memoir Stillways Steve Bisley lands smack dab in the middle of Sydney. It's 1966. High waisted bell bottom pants, paisley body shirts, velvet jackets, platform shoes and a lust for everything life has to offer him. And it offers him a lot. From cadet graphic artist to private eye, lover, fighter, dreamer, milk man, truck driver and everything in between and then some. Till the day he auditions for the acting course at The National Institute of Dramatic Art and to his dismay is accepted, along with fellow classmates, Judy Davis and Mel Gibson. Three years later, on their graduation day, Mel and Steve are cast in a film that will change their lives forever. The Iconic Australian cult film Mad Max. In this sensory and poetic memoir, actor Steve Bisley reflects on loving, losing, wrecking and running - the bridges burned - in the decades since hitchhiking away from the small family farm on the central coast of NSW in the 1960s. He explores with confronting honesty what it is to live on the edge of uncertainty, regret, despair and depression as an actor, lover and father, a life held together at times "by bits of frayed cotton and Perkin's paste and hope".

Russia has allied itself with the Islamic former Soviet Republics and several other Islamic countries. NATO has agreed to provide Israel with military aid. Many ethnic Jews from around the world have enlisted to serve with the NATO peacekeeping force to be sent to Israel, including a British national named John Ahasuerus. He is put in command of a platoon of NATO soldiers stationed in Jerusalem. Their commanding officer gives them a mission: reconnaissance flights over Jordan have been shot down and satellite photos are unavailable, so Ahasuerus and his men are being sent to the border to report on the troops massing in Jordan. As they head for the Dead Sea, the discussion turns from politics to religion to the Apocalypse. When they arrive, their discussion continues and is on his mind when he goes to sleep: in a dream he finds himself in Britain during the dark ages as a young man in search of his destiny at the time of King Arthur; he joins the Quest for the Grail and, after a transforming experience in which he learns much about himself, Ahasuerus awakens back at the coast of the Dead Sea. He takes over the watch—prepared, whatever happens, to fulfill what he now understands is his destiny.

At the same time, several members of the PCU team reach dramatic turning points in their lives - but the most personal tragedy is yet to come, for as the race to bring down a cunning killer reaches its climax, Arthur Bryant faces his own devastating day of reckoning. ‘I always said we’d go out with a hell of a bang,’ warns Bryant.

But now she’s not only being seen, she’s getting involved. Recent attacks against nonhuman Fatae have escalated into hate crimes against magic users in general—humans included. With the Mage Council distracted by internal power struggles, Wren reluctantly steps up as spokesperson for the fragilely united Fatae and lonejack communities. And, because the cosmos deems her without enough complications, her partner-lover Sergei is drowning in his own problems. And she can’t help him—she’s the cause. With lives on the line—including her own—Wren is going to have to break the lonejack credo, ditch her long-cherished invisibility and take a stand. But burning bridges can be deadly… Originally published in 2007
