This time of year, it helps to be reminded that we have a room for holiday threads located here (http://www.absolutewrite.com/forums/forumdisplay.php?f=203).

Please let's keep our holiday-themed discussions in that forum.

Thank you.

Fallen- A 19 year old Marine private ends up in a small county Emergency room with a gun shot wound and dog tags that state a birth date of 1898.

In a world where genetic experimentation pushes the bounderies of how far someone would go to live just a little longer, the main question is ; How many must die to keep one person alive?

There I have officially pimped :)

Okay then!

*clears throat*

Blue Galaxy is a pulpy, tongue-in-cheek space opera with lashings of sex and violence. It's a novella, offering a couple of hours of twists and turns and pure escapism. My favorite comment on the story came from our very own ShakeySix who stated (I paraphrase): "I haven't enjoyed science fiction so much since I devoured the Andre Norton shelf at the Great Bend Public Library in 1967." Judging from reviews, it seems to be a book readers either love or hate. I'm fine with that *grin*

Merry Christmas to you and yours, Stew!

If you like UF, there's my H&W Investigations series (starts with HUNTED BY THE OTHERS (http://www.amazon.com/Hunted-By-The-Others-ebook/dp/B003CNQ4H0/ref=sr_1_1?s=digital-text&ie=UTF8&qid=1324500972&sr=1-1), cover in my sig) about a human private investigator who gets dragged into some supernatural brouhaha.

I'm also in two anthologies, NOCTURNAL (http://www.amazon.com/Nocturnal-ebook/dp/B003IYI75A/ref=sr_1_2?s=digital-text&ie=UTF8&qid=1324500912&sr=1-2) and THE REAL WEREWIVES OF VAMPIRE COUNTY (http://www.amazon.com/Real-Werewives-Vampire-County-ebook/dp/B005CRY8S6/ref=sr_1_1?s=digital-text&ie=UTF8&qid=1324500938&sr=1-1). :D

Werewives is a little more tongue-in-cheek than the other stuff, hehe.

Sat Nam! (literally "Truth Name"--a Sikh greeting)

Sweet of you to do this! (And kind of the moderator not to move you!)

If you read spiritually oriented (but not preachy) non-fiction, you could try Sikh Spiritual Practice. Chapters contain lots of stories.

If you practice yoga (or know someone who practices yoga), you could try Yoga for Prosperity.

Blessings,

I'm unpublished, but I'd pimp out mccardey's Watch Out For Me, anything by Claudia Gray, any of the erotica writers, or just go trawling in the UF section of the AW library...

Oh, and Stacia Kane's Unholy Ghosts is awesome. (It scared the crap out of me at certain points, which makes me love it even more.)

Oh! And Absolute Visions, definitely. I came *this* close to making it into that anthology, so I've got to pimp it out. Read that book, and then contemplate that my story was almost as good. That's the closest you'll get to reading one of mine right now. :tongue
