"Shadow Tech is an alchemical exploration into the human shadow. Among several models discussed, destructive cultural drives are related to viruses and parasites in biology and information systems. Cyclical destructive behavior is attributed to the "victim-victor cycle". Culture and mind are shown to be organic operating systems which act as mediums for viral transmission of shadow energies. The authors share their own experiences and alchemical philosophy, as well as effective methods for balancing repressed destructive energies." What's next for those who have taken the "Red Pill"? The authors have found alchemical shadow work to be a powerful tool for balancing their internal states and the raising of their consciousness. The biggest battle for the minds of humanity is not waged "out there" - it's waged inside the psychic states of every human being.

Valerie Running Deer is a brash, brilliant neuroscience graduate student. Elizabeth Baldwin is her uptight, control-freak advisor. Elizabeth and Valerie’s relationship has always been a battle of wills, but when Elizabeth hands over one of Valerie’s original research ideas to another student, Valerie fires the shot that turns their cold war into a hot one: she makes a pass at Elizabeth’s daughter Lisa, a coy, impetuous teen who has been harboring a crush on her. Valerie’s spiteful impulse is diffused when she starts to fall for Lisa behind Elizabeth’s back, but a confrontation is inevitable. Valerie’s tumultuous journey towards it will entangle her in the circuitous dance of the relationships around her as friends, colleagues, and family struggle to balance need and trust, impulse and restraint. Control freaks. Hot heads. Timid artists. Impulsive kids. Dis/inhibition explores the complications of self-control both outside and inside the scientific laboratory.

Al Jennings, if we are to believe him, was for several years a close friend of O. Henry (William Sydney Porter), perhaps America’s favorite short-story writer. They met, Jennings claims, as outlaws on the run in Honduras, served time together in the Columbus, Ohio, Penitentiary at the turn of the century, and later met up in New York. Jennings, erstwhile lawyer, bank robber, and Hollywood consultant, was the subject of the 1951 movie Al Jennings of Oklahoma, starring Dan Duryea. Although a suspect narrator at best, Jennings is a masterful storyteller in this 1921 classic. Jennings describes the horrors of prison life so compellingly that the book might have served as a call for prison reform. Yet he also tells how he, O. Henry, and their friends managed to cope. They secured jobs in the prison post office and pharmacy and managed to find a secret room near the kitchen where on Sunday evenings they retired for a fine meal—complete with wine secured from corrupt prison contractors—and good talk. As Jennings recaps their long, philosophical discussions, readers may wish to have joined them in the fancy New York restaurants they were later able to frequent. Anyone reading Through the Shadows with O. Henry will agree that both of the author and his subject were characters worthy of any O. Henry tale.—Mike Cox

From the best selling author of DEFCON One comes an explosive new thriller. While Congress debates funding for the Stealth bomber, sinister forces have their own goals in mind. During a training exercise, a B 2 bomber disappears. With no evidence of a crash, the U.S. Air Force acknowledges that one of its' most secret and high tech aircraft has been hijacked. Intelligence leads to what would seem to be a very unlikely suspect: Cuba. Could the tiny nation pull off a theft of this magnitude? And what might its' plans be for the highly sought after aircraft? Finding answers to these questions becomes the top secret mission for CIA agent Steve Wickham. Without those answers, only one solution will remain: invasion. And then World War III will certainly follow. Can Wickham find the bomber before the president is forced to invade? Or will the world as we know it ignite into a nuclear conflagration?

How does our fascination with technology intersect with the religious imagination? In TechGnosis—a cult classic now updated and reissued with a new afterword—Erik Davis argues that while the realms of the digital and the spiritual may seem worlds apart, esoteric and religious impulses have in fact always permeated (and sometimes inspired) technological communication. Davis uncovers startling connections between such seemingly disparate topics as electricity and alchemy; online roleplaying games and religious and occult practices; virtual reality and gnostic mythology; programming languages and Kabbalah. The final chapters address the apocalyptic dreams that haunt technology, providing vital historical context as well as new ways to think about a future defined by the mutant intermingling of mind and machine, nightmare and fantasy.
