Jonathan Dunn contains two works by Jonathan Dunn The Forgotten King is a history of the Dark Ages, of the forgotten ages that followed the fall of Rome. Civilization did not collapse with the Roman empire, however, but grew again on an island nation off the coast of Europe. It was called Atilta, a land of ancient forests and great, maritime capitals. At this time, it was at war with itself as its people fought for freedom. Yet the freedoms they desired were contradictory: some longed to overthrow their tyrannical king, others their tyrannical God. It was a fight of forest against city, and nature against civilization; of man against beast, and beast against God. But whom was the victor? For the island of Atilta is no longer to be found. Yet its history remains, embedded into the myths and legends of an exiled people. This is its story. This is the history of The Forgotten King.The Revolutions of Time is a timeless science fiction / philosophical thriller. Its premise is this: Time flows in a circular motion, repeating itself in seasons that are much like a year on earth, similar time periods with the same general events. Because of these revolutions of time, the geological record shows not the immediate past, but the events of the last season or age, making the fossils and formations show by example what is yet to come. Jehu is transported to the end of his age by the mysterious Lord of the Past, and finds himself caught in the middle of a society at war over how to divert the Big Bang that is foretold by their geologists. What follows is, as they say, history.

Jack Brackitt

Jesus in Chicago-- is one of the free online novels by Jack Brackitt author of Mom Letters now brings us this free downloadable ebook, a novel modern adaptation of the Gospel. It retains the original chapters and verses, but it replaces Jerusalem with Chicago, moves the timeline up to present day, and modernizes the language. He also has his book Mom Letters still available. This comedy novel (squeaky clean and very family friendly) reports on a Chicago family’s life in one year. It’s funny, but the author says, it's three percent insipid. Anyway, there’s a lot about life in Chicago – what it’s like to ride an L train, walk through the Loop, eat at hole-in-the-wall restaurants, etc.

The Original Cyber-Book (published on-line in 1995)

New to Cyberbooks!NOW also published in Japanese by Fuso Publishing!

The Magic Life - A Novel Philosophy-- A motivational novel about living life to your own expectations, by Ace Starry. Finalist in the 1998 Hemingway First Novel Competition.

James Carpenter, is living his life trapped in a strait-jacket. An accountant by profession, he has done well by it. However, like many, he is learning the hard way that the security of having all the toys doesn't necessarily bring happiness. James is living in a mediocre state of discontent, but that is about to change. After a disturbing nightmare, he meets a mysterious magical mentor named, "Maximillion Vi." Max uses his power of illusion to create a world in which James will either learn to overcome his nightmare or die.

The book reveals the plot (both mystery and love story) while teaching a philosophy of life to the readers much like The Way of the Peaceful Warrior or The Celestine Prophecy. It also reveals many other profound secrets to help us discover who we are, what we are capable of and how to live life to the fullest. It is almost spiritual in nature and borders on the metaphysical at times, teaching a philosophy rooted in Eastern religion, but not blatantly religious. This book deals strongly with the power of coincidence. If you believe there is a reason for life, you should read this book. It is about how "living life" is the answer to the question of life. It is about discovering not just who we are and what we are capable of, but most importantly, why we are? For More Info and To Order
