THY KINGDOM COME. THY WILL BE DONE. Boston, Massachusetts. Home of clam chowder, the Red Sox and Harvard. Home, too, to some of the roughest, toughest criminals ever to walk the streets. When the bungling McManus brothers, Conner (Sean Patrick Flanery, Saw 3D) and Murphy (Norman Reedus, The Walking Dead), inadvertently end up taking out a pair of Russian Mafiosi, they realise they ve found their calling and embark on a mission to cleanse their city of criminals, inspired by the tactics of on-screen vigilantes like Clint Eastwood and Charles Bronson. But their vigilante antics soon attract the attention of Paul Smecker (Willem Dafoe, To Live and Die in LA), an FBI agent with his own unique approach to fighting crime, setting the stage for an epic confrontation that will redefine the words truth and justice . Released in early 2000 in the wake of the infamous Columbine High School massacre, writer/director Troy Duffy s tale of ultra-violent vigilantism was all but buried during its brief theatrical run but went on to enjoy a second wind on home video and has since attained cult status. With its irreverent humour and unflinching portrayal of violence, The Boondock Saints offers its own distinctive take on the seedy world of organised crime.

Winner of The Wonderland Award for Best Collection 2019Nightmares in Ecstasy is a collection of 13 stories of surreal body horror. In the narration, the line between eroticism and terror, desire and death, is blurred. Damaged souls hurtle, as if in a dream, toward mutilation, transformation, and fates worse than death. It is literary hardcore fiction for fans of David Cronenberg, Junji Ito, and Clive Barker.Praise for the book:"Surreal, grotesque, erotic. Brendan Vidito is a unique and disturbing new voice." (Wrath James White, author of If You Died Tomorrow, I Would Eat Your Corpse)"Brendan Vidito is the bastard son of Clive Barker and his fresh take on body horror will f--k you up." (Jack Bantry, creator of Splatterpunk Zine and author of The Lucky Ones Died First)"Vidito's words squirt shocking psychosexual bug juice into your brain's most private parts."

See where it all began between Hailey Conner and Ty Bennett! This is a novella that adds to the story in book six of the Sapphire Falls series, Getting Over It. You do not need to listen to this novella to enjoy the novel. This is strictly bonus content! It can be listened to before or after that book, but it is not a stand-alone story. You've been warned. Dear Listener, I knew from the first chapter of book one in the Sapphire Falls series that Hailey Conner was going to have a story. And I knew, as soon as I typed the words Tyler Bennett is such an ass, that it would be with Tyler Bennett! Over the next five books and two novellas, their story developed, and I realized that it was just as big as these two personalities. Before I typed one word of Getting Over It, their current-day love story, I knew that there was more about their story that listeners would want to know, and I planned to write this novella about how it all started. All of this happens before you see them love, fight, laugh, cry, and finally figure it out in Getting Over It. Even though I knew all of this happened in the past, I wrote the book first. And when it was all said and done, I realized that hearing about their now and their future would make people even more curious about their past. So technically, Getting to Her comes before Getting Over It, but it can definitely also be listened to after. Either way, I think you'll agree that these two have worked hard to get to their happily ever after. One of the best surprises in life, in my opinion, is finding out there's more to the story. Happy listening! 1. Language: English. Narrator: Kate Udall. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/adbl/026966/bk_adbl_026966_sample.mp3. Digital audiobook in aax.
Special Forces soldiers are daring, seasoned troops from America's heartland, selected in a tough competition and trained in an extraordinary range of skills. They know foreign languages and cultures and unconventional warfare better than any US fighters, and while they prefer to stay out of the limelight, veteran war correspondent Linda Robinson gained access to their closed world. She traveled with them on the frontlines, interviewed them at length on their home bases, and studied their doctrine, methods, and history. In Masters of Chaos she tells their story through a select group of senior sergeants and field-grade officers, a band of unforgettable characters like Rawhide, Killer, Michael T, and Alan - led by the unflappable Lt. Col. Chris Conner and Col. Charlie Cleveland, a brilliant but self-effacing West Pointer who led the largest unconventional war campaign since Vietnam in northern Iraq. Robinson follows the Special Forces from their first post-Vietnam combat in Panama, El Salvador, Desert Storm, Somalia, and the Balkans to their recent trials and triumphs in Afghanistan and Iraq. She witnessed their secret sleuthing and unsung successes in southern Iraq and recounts here for the first time the dramatic firefights of the western desert. Her blow-by-blow story of the attack on Ansar al-Islam's international terrorist training camp has never been told before. The most comprehensive account ever of the modern-day Special Forces in action, Masters of Chaos is filled with riveting, intimate detail in the words of a close-knit band of soldiers who have done it all. 1.

This mammoth omnibus edition collects the very best erotica by the writer the Bay Area Reporter calls "perhaps the best dick-stiffening author in the land" (though Travis also counts many female readers among his legions of fans). This collection of almost 90,000 words includes the supernatural classic "Blue Light"; "Crown of Thorns", an espionage story with a vicious twist; "The Hit", Travis' super-hot take on gangsters and film noir; "Getting Timchenko", perhaps his most poignant story; "Kudzu", perhaps his most disturbing; and the complete novel Slaves of the Empire, in which the gladiator Magnus defies the will of Rome's most dangerous senator to satisfy his lust with a pair of enslaved barbarian twins. Lars Eighner called "Getting Timchenko", "the finest thing I have read in years, possibly ever." cbtboyuk at gaybdsmfiction.blogspot.com said: "'Kudzu' is horrifying. In real life, it would be unthinkable…. I've had to buy a number of copies though." Michael Bronski wrote: "Slaves of the Empire has gained near-mythological status.… A high point of gay male writing in the second half of the 20th century." And "The Hit" was voted the number-one erotic story of the decade by readers of Susie Bright’s Best American Erotica series. If you've never discovered the work of Aaron Travis before, this volume will be a feast for your erotic imagination. As Travis writes in his introduction, "The function of fantasy is to take us from one side of the looking glass to the other, allowing us to experience degrees of terror and excitement we otherwise might never know. Now, draw the curtains and turn off the phone. Open your mind. Let down your guard. Let me tell you a story...." 1. Language: English. Narrator: Kevin Conner.

I designed a holistic, interventionist approach to treating Blacks with mental illnesses and addiction. Specifically, this approach integrates and adapts three distinct principles of healing: a biblical worldview, which includes the various spiritual practices of the laying on of hands and anointing with oil, prayers and meditations, uplifting scripture readings, faith-centered music, and church fellowship; practices that are culturally appropriate for Blacks, which include building trust, focusing on strengths, accounting for a community-based mentality, and incorporating uniquely Black spirituality; and multitheoretical healing practices, which include therapies based on self-efficacy theory, cognitive behavioral therapy, motivational interviewing, twelve-step chemical dependency treatments, Abraham Maslow's hierarchy of needs, and Madeline Leininger's transcultural nursing theory. The purpose of this Doctor of Nursing Practice (DNP) capstone project was to engage and empower Black people with a 'Circle of Care and Hope' that helps them overcome their unequal access to effective mental health treatment. Blacks have historically distrusted the Western and Caucasian-dominated model of mental health, which has governed most medical and psychiatric treatments in the United States. This distrust understandably stems from a history of extreme racism, including slavery and segregation, against the Black community in the United States. However, the distrust has also distanced those who are already excluded from many of society's benefits from Western medicine. Conner et al.  write that for Blacks, 'some of the most prevalent barriers acknowledged were lack of faith in mental health treatment, lack of access to treatment, mistrust, ageism, lack of recognition, and stigma' (p. 6). In other words, many Blacks distrust the Caucasian-dominated mental health system as a whole, and find it stigmatizing to participate in it. The expected result of the Circle of C
