This frightening scenario is now threatening to repeat itself with the so-called Swine Flu scare, causing a re-interest in "The Dust of Death: The Story of the Great Plague of the 20th Century".
Author: Fred Merrick White
Plague Holocaust Classic! Before the swine flu was in the news, plague, diphtheria, cholera, etc were one of the many natural disasters that could end human life as we know it in 'end of the world' fiction. One of these horrific plagues hits England and the world in this 1903 Apocalyptic novel where the disease kills millions, spreading from person to person, via waste, sewers, and causes havoc. One of the most frightening novels of its time, a time before vaccination was even a remote remedy. Frederick Merrick White wrote this Doom of London science-fiction story, in which this horrific catastrophe wipes out London. This frightening scenario is now threatening to repeat itself with the so-called Swine Flu scare, causing a re-interest in "The Dust of Death: The Story of the Great Plague of the 20th Century". A must for those interested in 'end of the world' by viral disease or plague stories. A masterpiece in its day and as frightening and captivating as ever. Prof. Muggins.

Grace Lively, once known for her beauty and charm, has been forever changed by the events of the past two years. The Great War has already taken her father, her sweetheart, perhaps her brother, and now—the great plantation she swore she would never return to until she was its rightful heir. But as an irresistible force leads her back to Lively in 1867, Grace soon realizes that her nightmare is far from over. After Grace marries Porter Jackson out of convenience not love, she tries to make him happy and find contentment in her own life. But when her former sweetheart’s best friend returns to Lively, Grace quickly falls in love with him—just as her husband is murdered. After a trail of clues leads the sheriff to suspect Grace is responsible for Porter’s death, she escapes Charleston on a railroad car without any idea she has just become a victim of a cruel lease system that is the primary penal caretaker for convicts. Now as she battles to stay alive, Grace is unaware that love awaits her—this time within the arms of a handsome Yankee officer. From the Dust of Death is the historical tale of one woman’s attempt to survive seemingly insurmountable challenges during the chaos of the post-Civil War South.

In our culture, we rarely speak about death -- partly because it is seen as a sort of pornography, shrouded in indecency and immersed in taboos; and partly because we know so little about it. Yet nearly everyone at some point has questions about what happens after death. At long last, here is a book to answer many of those questions: What physical changes occur to a dead body?
A revealing look at how death and burial practices influence the living Dust to Dust offers a three-hundred-year history of Jewish life in New York, literally from the ground up.

A revealing look at how death and burial practices influence the living Dust to Dust offers a three-hundred-year history of Jewish life in New York, literally from the ground up. Taking Jewish cemeteries as its subject matter, it follows the ways that Jewish New Yorkers have planned for death and burial from their earliest arrival in New Amsterdam to the twentieth century. Allan Amanik charts a remarkable reciprocity among Jewish funerary provisions and the workings of family and communal life, tracing how financial and family concerns in death came to equal earlier priorities rooted in tradition and communal cohesion. At the same time, he shows how shifting emphases in death gave average Jewish families the ability to advocate for greater protections and entitlements such as widows’ benefits and funeral insurance. Amanik ultimately concludes that planning for life’s end helps to shape social systems in ways that often go unrecognized.

White Dust Black Death is primarily focused on the Baryulgil Asbestos Mine (Northern NSW) owned and operated by Asbestos Mines Pty Ltd, a former subsidiary of James Hardie Industries NV. Secondary focus is the cultural interface between the dominant 'white' Australian society and Indigenous Australian cultures. Tertiary focus is upon endemic/institutionalised racism, both black and white. This book is positioned within cross-cultural and indigenous studies, racial theory and racism, labour studies, history, anthropology and sociology. It is a subjective thesis, examining a common series of threads in a cultural tapestry, which seeks to unite, inform and respectfully interact with Indigenous Australians. It is written in accord with the Japanangka Teaching and Research Paradigm, the creation and vision of the author's late elder (adoptive) brother, Palawa Elder Japanangka Professor E. West.

Life After Death takes an in-depth look at the important issues surrounding death. Does it matter what we believe? Why do we avoid talking about it? Can we confidently assume there is life after death? This book presents the Christian view of death and what lies beyond. It doesn't avoid the difficult questions of judgment and the possibility of missing out on all that God has planned for his people. However, for those who are searching for a real relationship with the living God, Life After Death presents a glorious message of hope and certainty. You don't have to go through life with any doubt about the future. On the contrary, if you are willing to accept all that God offers, on his terms, you will be able to look forward to an endless future in which you will experience all that God, in his infinite love and wisdom, has planned for you. You will also find a hope that will transform your goals, values, and understanding of every part of this present life.

Frederick Merrick White (1859-1935) was a pioneer in many fields -- the spy story, the detective story, and most especially the epic disaster story. His "Doom of London" series (1903), consisting of six tales in which various catastrophes beset London (including diphtheria, killer smog, and a devastanzing freeze), proved quite popular. The Yorkshire Observer wrote of him: “Mr. White is a master of the breathless pace which whirls a reader along whether he will or not." Included in this volume are all six "Doom of London" stories, plus 9 more tales: THE FOUR WHITE DAYS (1903) THE FOUR DAYS' NIGHT (1903) THE DUST OF DEATH (1903) A BUBBLE BURST (1903) THE INVISIBLE FORCE (1903) THE RIVER OF DEATH (1903) THE ISLAND OF SHADOWS (1892) A GOLDEN ARGOSY (1886) NABOTH’S VINEYARD (1889) THE CARDINAL MOTH (1905) THE CRIMSON BLIND (1905) THE SLAVE OF SILENCE (1906) THE WEIGHT OF THE CROWN (1906) THE FIVE KNOTS (1908) THE MYSTERY OF THE FOUR FINGERS (1908) HARD PRESSED (1910) If you enjoy this book, search your favorite ebook store for "Wildside Press Megapack" to see the 150+ entries in the Megapack series, covering science fiction, fantasy, horror, mysteries, westerns, classics, adventure stories, and much, much more!

Author: J. Clinton McCann, Jr.
Publisher: Abingdon Press
Taking his point of departure from the newest frontier of research, McCann reads the psalms in the context of their final shape and canonical form. He interprets the psalms as scripture as well as in their character as songs, prayers, and poetry from Israel's history. McCann's intent is to contribute to the church's recovery of the psalms as torah--as instruction, as a guide to prayer, praise of God, and pious living. The explicit connections which McCann draws from the psalms to the New Testament and to Christian faith and life are extensive, making his work suitable for serious study of the psalms in academic and in church settings. An appendix examines the tradition of singing the psalms and offers suggestions for the use of the psalms in worship.
