Beyond an Adventure: A Beautiful Love

By Angel R. Almagro

Once World War I was over, after devastating battles, including the Battle of Verdun, some French air fighters, almost all heroes of French Republic, were thought to be all dead in a plane crash while performing the first long distance fly of the giant Farman plane, "The Goliath", from Paris to Dakar. They were lost in the Sahara Desert without food and water. How they survived despite their ordeal! While France was recovering from war, they went to Cuba where they remained almost two years, and the place the most important for them was the Columbia airfield in Havana, which became a real aeronautic fair because of the presence of French air fighters and the Farman war planes. For these French nationals, after the battles of the First World War and the testing fly of "The Goliath" to towards Dakar, all these events took place without a single break. Still, their stay in Cuba was like an adventure, which happened under a relaxing and warm atmosphere, plenty of affection and happiness. A Cuban "mulatta", who was charged to prepare meals for the French pilots and mechanics, was the most notable woman in the Columbia airfield. Her name was Genevieve. One of French fellows, Leon, fell in love with her. It was a beautiful but sad love story. ABOUT THE AUTHOR: Born in Cuba in 1944 where he lived until 2001, Angel R. Almagro had never been able to spread his poetic message because of the Marxist regime that governed his country and by false priests who had tried to destroy his literary creation. He then left his country to reach the United States. He wants people to consider his poems and his entire work "like a fountain of prophecy, because it is already time to believe the true poets as spiritual messengers through which we can learn that our world really needs renovation." Angel R. Almagro has published three books of poetry at the Editions Dédicaces, entitled "AMEN ou The Child and the Beast", "Woman" and the two volumes of "The Winged Prince's Dream".

Une fois libéré, il retourne vivre chez son père, à Lanicey, et ils s'entendent enfin bien tous les deux.

Faded Dreams

Faded Dreams

By Carlos Rubio

Faded Dreams is an epic autobiography by my fellow writer and good friend Carlos Rubio. Beyond being a very personal story of a young man growing up to the backdrop of this remarkable country of Cuba, there is as well a political subplot of a country that is dragged through the mud by one of the most ruthless dictators in recent world history. The people who populate his world all fantastically come alive on the pages; Carlos does so well in telling how special they were to him, and are still special today. This book now gives us a close-up, in your face look at the very human side of Cuba as seen from a young man who lived there and experienced it as could be described as its rise and fall. Carlos was sent to the United States at a young age by his parents after Castro took over. Things there only get worse. Living in the safety and prosperity of the United States as an adult, Carlos periodically looks at photographs of family and friends he was so fond of in those days before the Revolution. They are no longer alive, but his doting on those photos vividly brings them back to life on the pages -it gives the reader a sense of timelessness and tells how powerfully a childhood was impacted by those people, especially the incredible person that was his father, a man from whom he could never separate himself. — Alan Hodgkinson (Author of After Incoming) ABOUT THE AUTHOR: Carlos Rubio was born in Cuba and came to the United States in 1961. After finishing high school, he attended Concord College and West Virginia University. A bilingual novelist, in Spanish he has written Caleidoscopio, Saga, Orisha and Hubris. In 1989 his novel Quadrivium received the Nuevo León International Prize for Novels. In English he is the the autor of Orpheus's Blues, Secret Memories and American Triptych, a trilogy of satirical novels. In 2004 his novel Dead Time received Foreword's Magazine Book of the Year Award. In 2014 his novel Forgotten Objects was published by Editions Dedicaces. Since then he has completed two Spanish-language novels, Only the Voice and Double Edge.

Quentin the Rebel

Quentin the Rebel

By Opaline Allandet

This narrative, which is entirely fictional, takes place in a real historical context: that of the Holy Roman Empire, at the beginning of the thirteenth century. At that time, the empire was torn by incessant civil wars, which were fought between two rival clans over the right to rule. Godefroy of Lanicey, known as "Godefroy the Cruel," remarried, taking for his bride Isadora of Willeim. She gave birth to Guillaume, his second son. Godefroy's son, Quentin—who had left his father three years earlier, because they both loved the same woman, who was then murdered—returned to the Lanicey fortress in 1201. He waged war alongside Othon of Brunswick, while his father supported the rival clan. But his character was beginning to assert himself, and he was behaving more and more like his father. He became powerful, full of himself, and terribly resentful. Following two prior adventures about the fortress's inhabitants—which pertain to Godefroy and his son—Quentin embarks for the Fourth Crusade, in the Middle East. This time, the Crusaders are victorious. Quentin returns to his country two years later, bringing with him his new, young bride. But Godefroy was furious; he refused the marriage, which he had not decided, and threatens to disinherit Quentin, in favor of Guillaume instead. Father and son face each other down once more. Quentin rebels and leaves the fortress, then decides to take revenge.... Read the story to discover what his revenge will be like. ABOUT THE AUTHOR: After completing a degree in social work in Dijon, the author worked as a social worker at the Centre hospitalier universitaire de Besançon until 2003. It was at this time that she stopped working so that she could write; literature is her greatest passion. She has written four collections of poetry, published by Éditions Dédicaces, as well as eight novels, of which the most recent, Godefroy the Cruel, was published in 2014. Quentin the Rebel is its sequel.

The Devil Wears a Dressing Gown

By D.A. Cairns

Satan. Lucifer, Beelzebub, Abaddon: whatever he is called, the Devil means different things to different people. For some he is real, for others, he is merely a personification of evil. Many people deny the existence of the devil even though they profess to believe in God. Some say he is the source of evil, while others think blaming the Devil for the evil deeds of men is just an excuse. The devil has been caricaturized to such an extent in popular culture that he is no longer taken seriously. Featuring and eclectic collection of new and previously published stories, and inspired by C.S.Lewis' masterful work, The Screwtape Letters, The Devil Wears a Dressing Gown is an revelation of, and an examination of, the many faces of evil. ABOUT THE AUTHOR: Heavy metal lover and cricket tragic, D.A. Cairns lives in Darwin in Australia's Northern Territory, where he works as an English language teacher and writes stories in his very limited spare time. He has had over 50 short stories published, and has authored five novels: Devolution, Loathe Your Neighbor, Ashmore Grief, A Muddy Red River and Love Sick Love. He blogs at Square Pegs, a personal blog featuring bite sized articles on a range of topics plus links to his novels and other published works: www.dacairns.blogspot.com.au.

Nous croyons savoir beaucoup sur notre évolution. Mais qu'en est-il vraiment ? Sommes-nous là simplement pour vivre une vie, puis nous en aller comme nous sommes arrivés ?

Et si nous avions déjà toutes ces réponses en nous ? Dans cette aventure pleine de rebondissements, Allan et Garvey découvriront le véritable sens du mot " Humanité ". Il englobe à lui seul tout ce que nous avons été, ce que nous sommes et ce que nous sommes capables d'être. Tout cela ne tient qu'à un fil ; la volonté de chacun.

Peut-on tout réparer ?

By Colline Hoarau

De retour de la Réunion, Reine-May semble avoir mis son histoire dans l'ordre. Léna, la bavarde, va se lier d'amitié pour la jeune solitaire. Si la Réunion est toujours présente, l'histoire se passe en Bretagne, dans cette région où se mêlent les légendes ancestrales et l'authenticité d'un patrimoine naturel préservé avec une incursion en Bourgogne. Dans les deux volets du roman, des moments de suspens, voire de mystère nous attendent. Qui entoure la jeune fille ? Comment grandit-on quand on a un passé aussi douloureux ? Peut-on tout réparer ? Les blessures, l'histoire, le passé ? À PROPOS DE L'AUTEUR : Née en 1966 à l'île de la Réunion, Colline Hoarau a vécu entre son île natale à laquelle elle est très attachée et la métropole. Toute son existence a été marquée par les livres.

Elle a publié trois romans. En 2014, " L'adieu à Lila " ne passe pas inaperçu. Il est inspiré par la Réunion des années 70. Nous retrouvons la même sensibilité dans " Notre vie à trois ", un ouvrage évoquant un sujet difficile, la maladie de Parkinson. Le dernier roman, "Sois sage, Reine-May" est l'histoire d'une jeune réunionnaise portant un lourd secret et découvrant le Centre Bretagne et ses trésors. En 2017, elle signe son premier livre pour enfants, "Madigoù, la petite fille aux bonbons". "Peut-on tout réparer" est son dernier roman. Il fait suite à "Sois sage, Reine-May".

L'Ere du Verseau (Tome 3)

By Yves Klein

En pleine nuit, quelque part dans le Massif Central, deux jeunes gens sont soudain et malgré eux confrontés au déchaînement d'un formidable blizzard. Conjonction trop improbable pour être le fait d'une coïncidence, et qui déroulera le fil d'un lumineux et tragique destin assumé côte à côte à travers les commotions d'une civilisation à l'agonie. C'est le début d'une prodigieuse aventure où la conflagration de toutes les haines, de toutes les horreurs, mais aussi de l'abnégation et du courage les plus admirables, livrera le combat d'une irrésistible foi en un avenir radieux contre un ennemi impitoyable acharné à la détruire. Ce livre est tout à la fois une épopée, un poème d'amour et un avertissement. Les temps que nous vivons procèdent d'une fatalité à laquelle l'homme s'est condamné lui-même, en se dévouant corps et âme à l'adoration d'une société obstinément matérialiste. Elle périra de ses propres excès, comme ont péri avant elle d'autres civilisations corrompues par le même mal. Une ère encore jamais vue, l'ère du Verseau, lui succédera, éternel et glorieux printemps qui dissipera pour jamais les ténèbres les plus rigoureuses qu'ait eu à affronter l'humanité. À PROPOS DE L'AUTEUR : Né en 1953, Yves Klein est l'auteur de quelques nouvelles, d'un roman, d'une pièce de théâtre et de quelques poèmes. Sa solide culture littéraire et son style fouillé le placent plus près d'Hugo que de Céline, ce qui est indispensable au souffle que requiert une épopée comme l'Ere du Verseau. Il travaille actuellement à achever ce qui sera à la fois le roman parallèle et la suite du présent roman.

The Hero of New France

By Lee Dorsey

Little is known about Adam Dollard (referred to as Daulac on his death certificate) except that he came to New France in 1658 under mysterious circumstances and had a military background in France. Adam Dollard in the spring of 1660, assumed the leadership of an expedition to the Ottawa River. Along with 17 young French companions left Ville-Marie (Montreal) to deter an army of 800 Iroquois who were intent on invading Quebec and Montreal later that year to remove the French from their hunting grounds once and for all. These young Frenchmen set up camp at the foot of the Long Sault (rapids) along the Ottawa River and were joined eventually by 40 Huron's and 4 Algonquin's who were sworn enemies of the Iroquois. Scarcely had they had time to put an old abandon fort in shape when 300 Iroquois burst forth along the river. They were the advance-guard of the 800 Iroquois forming at the mouth of the Richelieu on the St. Lawrence. Fighting ensued and the Iroquois were driven back several times with severe losses. At that point, they sent for the entire army of Iroquois to take this little fort. After five days of fighting, the Iroquois by overwhelming numbers managed to enter the fort and kill all the survivors but three. These unfortunate men were divided up and taken to the individual Iroquois villages to be tortured to death. A third of the Iroquois army is said to have perished in this battle. The Iroquois were appalled by the fact that the defense was put up by only 17 Frenchmen since most of the Huron's abandoned them, and so they withdrew to their own territory among the five Iroquois nations. The planned attack on Montreal and Quebec was postponed indefinitely. ABOUT THE AUTHOR: Lee Dorsey attended the American University in Washington, D.C., and holds a Master's Degree in Human Resources Management. He worked in broadcasting for several years, and after which, he worked for the United States Naval Academy, where he was eventually promoted to Director of Human Resources for the Brigade Services Division. He retired from the USNA in 2008 and began a new career as a writer. He currently writes fulltime, and is the author of several published novels, including A Forbidden Love, Mercenaries of Panama, I and II, Indiscretions, The Artist, Androgyny, A Search for Love, The Triangulum Galaxy and Whatever Happened to Virginia Dare.

The Day My Soul Spoke

By Jean-Yves Fortuny

At the age of sixty-five years old, Anselme is a retired nurse. Like everyone else, he's his fair share of difficulties, and now he aspires to live a quiet life with his wife, Constance. But this year promises to be different than those before it, and a plot revolves around him: a mysterious invitation is sent to him, asking him to come to Paris during Christmastime. The invitation says nothing about the purpose of this journey, which will lead him from discovery to discovery, and which will radically change the rest of his life. ABOUT THE AUTHOR: I wrote only for myself. The story stayed in my mind for many years. Why? That, I don't know; it was probably an interpretation of the life I had elaborated in my mind during all this time. As time passed, I thought of the story omre and more; it had come to the point where there were so many questions that I had no choice but to find the answers. So, one fine morning, I decided to write this story. This was necessary; it was one of those days where renewal, where feelings of "Why not?", were called for. At my job, when I was waiting for a client, I had time to kill—a little more than an hour. Convinced that this moment would come, whether sooner or later, I had planned ahead, and had bought a few notebooks. I opened one of them, and put pen to paper...

The Angel's Revenge

By Kane Lesser

The welcoming beauty of the Aegean Sea, Robbie's tantalizing company, and the exquisite luxury yacht on which they traveled. It was there were Breck confessed the dark secret of his actions. His dirk's blade glimmered with the blood of his slaughtered brothers, their final spirit he saw lift from their bodies as he'd sliced them open. Desperate to end the reign of terror, his murderous actions did nothing to quell the horror yet to come. The sighting of his estranged father, the exsanguination of the boat's captain were the Apocalyptic signs that the worst was awaiting them. Remarkable turns of events dashed all hope of Breck and Robbie returning to Chicago. Once again seeking shelter at Jean-Philippe's French chalet, Breck swore Nobel to the secrecy that they would meet Jean-Philippe at the alternative hideout. But when the Frenchman unexpectedly arrived in Chicago to surprise Breck at his expected return, it was only kidnappers that greeted his landing. They demanded all of it - the $100 million dollars that Breck's mother had willed him upon her untimely death. It was that or the elimination of Jean-Philippe. No negotiation was to be had. Only Al could have orchestrated this heinous plan, executed to near-perfection. Had he repeated the action nearly 20 years after the disappearance of his family? It was of little consequence. Tracking Al to the Welsh racetrack, Breck quickly learned of their family's sinister historical tale, spun yarns that unleashed generations of revenge and retaliation. It was not identical blood that coursed their veins and before Breck slit the imposter's throat with his own dagger, Al claimed innocence to his own grandchildren's kidnapping. Determined to free his friend and confront the unknown demons, Breck fights his fear to face the threats that his Chicago home and playground now posed. With the military skills of his Uncle Gracie fortified, the extraction and defense were well underway. Their homecoming and release of Jean-Philippe would unveil the mysteries of his children's disappearance and even more questionable reappearance. But the aching question persisted: who were the men they'd killed? And who was still deathly determined to capture the blood money?

The Angel's Curse

By Kane Lesser

Stolen children returning to loving arms of their distraught father wouldn't possibly be a nightmare in disguise. It couldn't possibly tarnish the promise of shining holidays just within their grasp, celebrations that far too long were exclusive of previous family. Robbie couldn't have imagined finding the wee Esmeralda anything but a blessing in disguise…until the boy Dand appeared within a matter of days. The lad determinedly sought the skilled hitman that would avenge the death of his father in the Irish pub's explosion. Never in his wildest dreams could he have believed that the ideal hitman had himself lit the fuse of the bomb. Robbie faced the nightmare he prayed he'd never face in conscious light: it now fell upon his shoulders to tell the boy the truth...and pray to God the tale of malevolence wouldn't cost him his and Breck's lives. Rose's words continuously rose from the grave to expose the haunting reality of Breck's origin. Having been as thick as brothers from the start, Breck and Robbie stood on the precipice of clutching firm a family tie that they believed could have never been weakened. One that now faced ultimate destruction. ABOUT THE AUTHOR: From the author who brought you her debut novel, The Angel's Lounge, comes the subsequent thriller, The Angel's Curse.

Les Enfants de Moloch

By Stéphane Desroches

Alberta Prescott était ce genre de femme quasi parfaite; indépendante, énergique, résolue, éclairé, humaniste et un tantinet excentrique. Lorsqu'une connaissance lui fit part de ses malheurs, elle fonça tête baissée dans ce qui s'avéra être une aventure extrêmement dangereuse... Son amie, Mylène n'avait pas eu un passé très sein et une enfance très rose! Trois ans plus tôt, un mystérieux médecin la convainquit de devenir mère porteuse pour des gens riches et célèbres. Des millionnaires voulant rester dans l'anonymat le plus total. Au terme de sa grossesse, on lui promettait un généreux boni en échange de son silence! Très vite, l'atmosphère devint malsaine et Mylène se retrouva retenue contre son gré dans un endroit qui servait de pouponnière à une organisation criminelle qui se spécialiserait dans des adoptions illicites... On lui interdit de voir sa fille et l'on arracha l'enfant à l'amour maternel de sa mère biologique. Mylène fut meurtrie dans son âme et ressentit une affreuse mélancolie, une solitude qui ne cicatrisait pas... Deux ans avaient passé depuis la naissance de la petite Pamela. L'impétueuse Alberta, dilettante et altruiste de nature, se mit en tête de retrouver la trace des parents adoptifs et de réconcilier ce qui ne semblait nullement négociable... Le droit génétique et biologique d'une mère qui crut au marchandage de la vie et les acquis des parents adoptifs qui ont, en toute connaissance de cause, choisi un bébé via un groupuscule qui œuvrait dans la clandestinité? Pour Alberta, c'est la voie de la justice et du bien qu'elle voulait suivre... Mais parfois les ténèbres et les mystères ombragent ce qui se voulait pourtant si simple! Elle affrontera des périls mortels et de grands dangers pour faire éclater la vérité au grand jour... Mais quelle vérité? Le roman " les enfants de Moloch " est une histoire intégralement noire qui impose un indubitable questionnement sur les pièges de la facilité moderne et de ses convenances morales choisies à la carte. L'œuvre ne se veut nullement être une apologie de nos valeurs contemporaines ou une critique de notre manière de vivre... Mais il arrive parfois que la vérité soit plus terrifiante que l'horreur des films d'épouvantes parce qu'elle se vit au quotidien! À PROPOS DE L'AUTEUR : Écrivain au col bleu du grand Montréal urbain qui se passionne pour l'écriture intuitive sans prétentions. Cancre chronique sans parcours académique, il réussit à vaincre sur le tard ses lacunes littéraires à force de travail et d'efforts. Autodidacte développant un style unique bien à lui. S'inspirant de faits divers et de chroniques macabres pour tisser ses histoires fictive d'une criante réalité. Mélangeant subtilement le genre d'épouvante à la H.P. Lovecraft, la terreur incisive d'un Clive Barker, les intrigues à la Agatha Christie, les tergiversations occultes de Dennis Wheatley et l'imaginaire initiatique et époustouflant de Dan Brown.
