One Hundred Tales For Ten Thousand Buddhas—this is an essential book. There exists no other quite like it. It is a collection of living moments with the living Buddha. It is not some events remembered and then adorned with reactions. These are tales vitally alive. These tales are a great gift for all of us—those who have sat with the living Master and those who haven’t. It is a book for all seekers. It is also a book for those who are not actively seeking, but surely have the same longing-the longing for a taste of that love which has no bondage.

Bringing to light an entertaining array of anecdotes, this collection of police stories recalls some of the strangest, funniest, and most poignant accounts from the freeways, highways, and country roads throughout California. From the family who pulled over for a picnic on the median strip of a busy freeway to the angelic-looking 5-year-old girl who defused a tense traffic stop by sweetly confessing, "my daddy has a beer under the seat," this is an uncompromising view of the everyday pursuits, enforcement stops, arrests, accidents, and weird encounters that patrolmen must endure. Also featured is a panoply of unlikely drunk-driving suspects, including Santa Claus, a Boy Scout troop leader, a newlywed couple, and an airline pilot on his way to fly a plane; the traffic stop of an elderly driver whose license had expired 35 years earlier--and who explained he was on his way to the DMV; and many more hilarious, odd, and tragic stories of life and death on the open road. Encouraging a renewed respect for the men and women in uniform who risk their lives to protect the public, this compilation also contains advice on highway safety and how to behave when pulled over by a patrol officer.

Daniel M. Avery has been fascinated with the human body ever since he was young, so it was natural that he should grow up to become a successful doctor. As a funeral director, he had his first opportunity to learn about anatomy, disease processes, and trauma. He even witnessed the medical examiner performing autopsies in the morgue. Once he became a doctor, his adventures were more interesting—although there are decisions he regrets. For instance, he would have never called the university to tow away an illegally parked recreation vehicle if he had known it belonged to the dean of the medical school. In spite of the seriousness of the medical profession, he enjoyed his share of light moments as well. When a female resident delivered a baby and got blood all over her, she asked if she could borrow a pair of underwear. “We wear different sizes, and I only have one pair,” Dr. Avery replied. All physicians have at one time or another wished they had written down the highlights of their careers. Dr. Avery does so with no regrets, examining the challenges, adventures, and funny moments that have defined his life as an Alabama doctor in Tales of a Country Obstetrician.

Perfect Turkeys is the second in a series of books, that examines (through short stories) the often hilarious, and always funny life and times of Michael Devin Hughes. Whether searching for the Perfect Turkey for Thanksgiving, or trying to locate the Fig Queen's House in Brewster Hollow, or reserving a hotel room with a chain hotel, Michael Devin Hughes complicates the most simple of tasks. Though quadruple-divorced, Hughes maintains relations with his ex-wives and children, as the short stories, "Dancing With My Daughter," "A Walk at Sunset With My Son," and "Chief of Personal Appearance" reveal. Michael Devin Hughes' obsessive nature is deliciously illustrated in "Lemon Bars." His humorous bond with his father is wonderfully amplified in "The Buffet Line." And Hughes incredibly bad timing is hilariously detailed in "Dinner and Railroad Crossings."

A 1907 lion attack at Luna Park, death by spontaneous combustion, Jack the Ripper's rumored visit to the city and an umpire who was rescued from an angry crowd by Pirates players are all part of the forgotten history of the Steel City.

This book is a family friendly compilation of stories about a variety of hilarious characters from Maury County Tennessee. The author grew up in Mount Pleasant Tennessee on the south end of the county and learned of the exploits of several unique characters as he travelled a route called The Z. After moving away he began telling tales about these characters. The interest his listeners had in these stories fascinated him and he came to realize that other towns did not have a 'rich' history like his hometown. Whether it is Officer Manley Workman hooking a wrecker to Fatty Isabel to haul him to jail after he refused to go or Tooterbill Odom causing a massive explosion in a slag pit at his place of employment to give the 'townsfolk' a spectacular Fourth of July fireworks display, these stories will keep you laughing out loud. Another thing the author came to realize through the years as he started including tales about himself in these story telling sessions is that he had also contributed to the history of the town in some amusing ways. Is there another place like Mount Pleasant Tennessee? You will have to read the book to decide!

A true-life tale of the paranormal unlike any you have read before On the 25th June 2004 I, a devout agnostic and sceptic of all things ‘paranormal’ was forced to accept that I may have a poltergeist in my home in Vietnam! To say I found that weird would be the understatement of the century but with hindsight I can say that the weirdest thing of all was that the poltergeist-like activity I experienced that night was just the beginning of the most incredible story and things would get a whole lot weirder in the days and months to come! I know that many will find my story just too unbelievable to possibly be true, and as a lifelong sceptic myself I can completely understand that. I give my word that every part of this story is true however I realise that, as a complete stranger, my word is worth very little to you, but if you choose to consider my book as merely an imaginative work of fiction I trust that you will still find it an interesting, entertaining and thought provoking read.
