The first four books in Dred Dixon Chronicles. Over 1200 pages in urban fantasy adventure!

The forces of darkness take no prisoners. Neither do I. Coincidence?

I’m Dred Dixon (call me Mildred, my real name, and find out what happens. I dare you). My marching orders are to protect the hidden world at all costs. That’s fancy-talk for “Neutralize the baddies.” I’m murderously good at my job.

But now the Fates are meddling. They want me to stop killing so much. What am I supposed to do? Reason with monsters? Talk down demons? They may as well start digging my grave now.

The Fates always make things worse. I think I’ll ignore them. Damned if I do. Damned if I don’t.

Damn it.

If you enjoy Orlando A. Sanchez, Kimbra Swain, Shayne Silvers, John P. Logsdon, Michael Anderle, or K.F. Breene, you'll dig adventuring with Dred Dixon and her ex-NYC Flameheart, Hank Stone.

★★★★★ "Well developed characters that become compelling companions on this adventure... This novel was very hard to put down. MORE."

★★★★★ "I left a little late for my first job today because my Kindle said I was at 95%. Just 5% more to read. I couldn’t wait all day for the conclusion because... Well, just because I was so into this book I had to know the ending."

On top of learning that demons might not be what they seem, Halira soon discovers a forgotten magic, one that could drive a wedge between her and Dimitri, and threaten the very survival of the realm.

Will Halira be the savior her country needs? Or will the allure of dark forces thrust her into the shadows?

Make Enterprise Great Again: The Gods Must Be Crazy!

by Saji Madapat


♥♥♥This book will blow away your preconceptions of the almighty American Empire and its Enterprises. I guarantee it!♥♥♥

This book takes its title from the 1980 comedy film “The Gods Must Be Crazy,” in which an empty Coca-Cola bottle is dropped from a plane onto a community of African bushmen. The bottle is thought to be a gift from the Gods, but after it incites bitter fighting amongst the villagers, the tribal leader decides to return it to the Gods, embarking upon a journey to the end of the world. Through my own metaphorical coke bottle, I visualize the dawn of a daunting new Empire.  This book serves as both a testament to the past glories of the current American Empire and a guidebook to restoring Capitalism and Enterprise – before it is too late.

Steve Hilton:” A lot of people say that China wants to replace the US as the superpower     ...,  Do you believe that that's their intention?"

Trump: "Yes, I do. Why wouldn't it be? They're very ambitious people. They're very smart. They're great people. It's a great culture."

                          -           Fox News interview (05-19-19)

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

It’s halftime America!

Ay Yi Yai Yi!  We are in the middle of The New World Order!

Empires rise, decline, and fall. History has witnessed this cycle with the Romans, the Ottomans, and the British. They have all toppled, and if we are not careful, the US will be the next.

Many of today’s enterprises are a gaggle of debt-addicted extreme financial engineering frogs floundering in tepid snake oil. Unfortunately, many will find their demise in the clutches of IP vultures.

If we don't play our trump cards right, the next voracious Empire - the Middle Kingdom of China - will consume us; sending their errand boys to collect bills from the US and over a hundred other countries that it has economically and digitally colonized since the Economic Tsunami of 2008, through “Belt and Road Initiative” (BRI) to its “Digital Silk Road” (DSR).

“Make Enterprise Great Again” digs into the foundations of capitalism and traces the ideals, triumphs and zeitgeist of the Roosevelt years in order to “Build Back Better” – and to save us from the impending Fourth Reich.

Yeah! It's halftime, America!
