    Ebook by J. Marvin Herndon Ph.D.

    The last 200 years have seen major discoveries in determining how the Earth formed, but until now, a unifying theory did not exist. In this ebook, Dr. J. Marvin Herndon puts his forth his theory of the Earth’s formation and how that determined some of our planet’s characteristics, namely the geomagnetic field. Learn more about what the magnetic field does, how it protects us from the Sun, why the field reverses at irregular intervals, what’s at the Earth’s core, and what would happen if the field failed. Herndon carefully correlates his theory with important discoveries by scientific pioneers William Gilbert, Carl Friedrich Gauss, Emil Wiechert, Henry Cavendish, Hans Christian Oersted, Michael Faraday, and Arnold Eucken. A must-read for geology and earth science enthusiasts, this easy-to-read ebook is a great addition to the history of scientific discovery.

    Ebook by Angus Brownfield

    Traditional cosmology turns upside down in Angus Brownfields' fable about degrees of good and evil among humans. Told in multiple voices—human, angelic and demonic—An Angel at Satan's Ball begins when the Almighty bets Satan that His distinguished angel Ulysses can’t be inveigled by his fallen son’s craftiest hunter, Semyaza. As Semyaza attempts to bring down Ulysses by attacking his love, the human Sarafina, all must struggle between their own literal and figurative heavens and hells as they learn of fate, love and sacrifice.

    About theAuthor

    Angus Brownfield was born in Iola, Kansas, in 1937. His place of birth was an accident, as his mother was visiting an old friend when he decided to emerge. Fortunately, the friend's husband had delivered Angus's four older siblings, and his debut was without incident. Born in the second dip of the Great Depression, Angus and his family went where they had to in order to survive. Thus his first memories are of midwestern cities and midwestern values. Although schooled in English literature at the University of California, Berkeley, he strayed into public health and medical care planning, authoring businesslike research proposals and long-range plans that molder in the archives of various bureaucracies. In 1986 he shifted gears and began writing fiction. In 2011 several novels conceived in the late eighties and early nineties emerged from long gestation as ebooks. The productivity continues with An Angel at Satan's Ball (2013) and, scheduled for early 2014, Bread to the Wise. Angus currently lives and writes in the Rogue Valley, Oregon.
