No Return: A Novel of Jeroun

On Jeroun, there is no question as to whether God exists–only what his intentions are.Under the looming judgment of Adrash and his ultimate weapon–a string of spinning spheres beside the moon known as The Needle–warring factions of white and black suits prove their opposition to the orbiting god with the great fighting tournament of Tchootoo, on the far side of Jeroun’s only inhabitable continent.

From the Thirteenth Order of Black Suits comes Vedas, a young master of martial arts, laden with guilt over the death of one of his students. Traveling with him are Churls, a warrior woman and mercenary haunted by the ghost of her daughter, and Manshep, a constructed man made of modular spheres possessed by the foul spirit of his creator. Together they must brave their own demons, as well as thieves, mages, beasts, dearth, and hardship on the perilous road to Tchootoo, and the bloody sectarian battle that is sure to follow.

On the other side of the world, unbeknownst to the travelers, Ebn and Pol of the Royal Outbound Mages (astronauts using Alchemical magic to achieve space flight) have formed a plan to appease Adrash and bring peace to the planet. But Ebn and Pol each have their own clandestine agendas–which may call down the wrath of the very god they hope to woo.

Bob Books Set 1: Beginning Readers

This is Bob Books bestselling first reader, introduced more than 35 years ago and used by millions of children. If your child knows the alphabet, Bob Books Set 1 is the book to start him or her on the path to reading.

Many early readers contain words that are too difficult for a child who has just learned the sounds of the alphabet. Not these books! Using only the letters M, A, T and S, children can read their first book. New letters are added gradually, until all letters of the alphabet have been introduced (except Q). Short vowels and three-letter words in simple sentences help kids build reading confidence. They love the stories and funny pictures, and can’t wait to read them to everybody they know.
