The southern frontier could be a cruel and unforgiving place during the early eighteenth century. The British colony of South Carolina was in proximity and traded with several Native American groups. The economic and military relationships between the colonialists and natives were always filled with tension but the Good Friday 1715 uprising surprised Carolinians by its swift brutality. Larry E. Ivers examines the ensuing lengthy war in This Torrent of Indians. Named for the Yamasee Indians because they were the first to strike, the war persisted for thirteen years and powerfully influenced colonial American history. While Ivers examines the reasons offered by recent scholars for the outbreak of the war—indebtedness to Anglo-American traders, fear of enslavement, and pernicious land grabbing—he concentrates on the military history of this long war and its impact on all inhabitants of the region: Spanish and British Europeans, African Americans, and most of all, the numerous Indian groups and their allies. Eventually defeated, the Indian tribes withdrew from South Carolina or made peace treaties that left the region ripe for colonial exploitation. Ivers’s detailed narrative and analyses demonstrates the horror and cruelty of a war of survival. The organization, equipment, and tactics used by South Carolinians and Indians were influenced by the differing customs but both sides acted with savage determination to extinguish their foes. Ultimately, it was the individuals behind the tactics that determined the outcomes. Ivers shares stories from both sides of the battlefield—tales of the courageous, faint of heart, inept, and the upstanding. He also includes a detailed account of black and Indian slave soldiers serving with distinction alongside white soldiers in combat. Ivers gives us an original and fresh, ground-level account of that critical period, 1715 to 1728, when the southern frontier was a very dangerous place.

The International Butter Festival has come to town! When Harlow Torrent, part-time journalist and full-time Slip witch stumbles upon a dead body, frozen and drained of blood, she’s pulled into a murder mystery. Someone has murdered one of the Butter Festival competitors. Was it Zero Bend, punk sculptor extraordinaire with a history of violence? Perhaps Fusion Swan, a sleazy agent playing the publicity game when his clients meet their untimely end. Between trying to run her struggling online newspaper, dealing with her highly caffeinated cousins Molly and Luce, fending off three meddling witch mothers who will do anything to get their daughters married off (including drugging food with magic potions) and great Aunt Cass who appears to be running an underground laboratory of some kind, Harlow barely has time to breathe, let alone solve a murder. Romance certainly isn’t on the cards either but the hot scruffy guy new to town seems to have other ideas…

In the year 2060—after decades of war, famine and financial collapse—individual nations ceased to exist, borders were blurred, different currencies were abandoned, and the new world order was complete. The dominion of the Global Alliance, ruled by the heads of the Five Families, had begun. Now, over a century later, the power of the Global Alliance is absolute. Every aspect of daily life brings the Families more power and more profit. Though there are internal struggles within the Families, the world is enjoying history’s longest stretch of peace. Even crime is nearly non-existent—due to the SID chip implanted in every citizen at birth. Banking and shopping are now controlled through the simple swipe of a hand, and the world’s citizens are pacified in a haze of security and consumerism. But when the man overseeing the launch of the SID upgrade discovers a fatal design flaw, the government quickly silences him. His children, eighteen-year-old Danica Seton and her thirteen-year-old brother Marcus, are forced to run as agents of the Global Alliance hunt them. Their frantic flight will lead them into the company of a pale-skinned man with a dark history. Dr. Sonje Nysgaard, a colleague of the children’s father and likewise aware of the flaw, narrowly escapes the attempt on her life. Hiding from Alliance soldiers, she finds herself under the protection of a terrorist organization dedicated to the overthrow of the Alliance and the Families. These distractions are ill timed for Kerwen Garrott, the head, or Caput, of his Family. With the unveiling of the Peacekeeper drones, the world’s first fully automated soldier, the Garrott name has risen high—thus attracting the distrust and contempt of the other Families. And as Caput Garrott struggles to navigate the treacherous politics of the Alliance, the terrorists have marked him as their next target. The first threads tugged are small, but possess the potential to unravel the whole tapestry—a tapestry carefully woven two millennia ago in deep shadow and bloody conspiracy. Few remember its origin, and none can predict the role one man will play in what is to come. A man who would become both savior and enslaver. A man from the woods. A man named Torrance. So begins the story of the Scars of Tomorrow.

This Collection bundles all three of Jan Watson’s Troublesome Creek novels into one e-book for a great value! #1 Troublesome Creek: A charming historical novel set in the late 1800s. Born and raised in the hills of Kentucky, Laura “Copper” Grace loves the wilderness of her home in Troublesome Creek. But when her stepmother threatens to send her away to boarding school to become a lady, Copper faces the possibility of losing everything that is precious to her. Copper must come to terms with her family and discover the true meaning of home. Nothing can drag her off the mountain, until the day she realizes that God has other plans for her life. #2 Willow Springs: The year is 1883 and following a whirlwind courtship, seventeen-year-old Copper Brown finds herself living in the bustling city of Lexington, KY, far away from her beloved mountain home, newly married to a man she barely knows. Having been raised to put her trust in God, Copper sets out to find a purpose for this new life that she’d never imagined. #3 Torrent Falls: The year is 1888; Copper is a young widow with a baby trying to make a go of the ramshackle farm she received from her father in Troublesome Creek. Copper’s life seems as dilapidated as the farm as she struggles to come to terms with her shattered world. Desperate to rekindle the easy faith she had as a child, she searches for peace and God’s direction in the serenity of the Kentucky mountains. Further complicating her life is a budding romance with John Pelfrey, Copper’s long ago sweetheart. Once sure she could never love again, Copper gives her heart to John only to face betrayal. A skilled midwife, Copper is challenged in many ways as she ministers to the women of eastern Kentucky. Always a believer, Copper still has much to learn as she grows in wisdom and in faith.

When Delia chose to major in archaeology, she imagined herself as the female Indiana Jones of the Southwest. She didn't imagine herself crawling through abandoned mine shafts, scrounging for rusty pickaxes and gold pans to sell on auction sites, but Indiana Jones didn't have to make student loan payments. Scouring the mountains of Arizona with Simon, her best friend and computer geek extraordinaire, Delia dreams of turning their scavenging enterprise into a legitimate business. More, she longs to earn the respect of peers who shun her for turning into a treasure hunter. What she doesn't dream of is stumbling across a decapitated body in an old mine near Prescott. Something dangerous has come to the mountains, and a pair of Harley-riding strangers are the only ones who seem to have a clue. They speak a language Delia has never heard and carry mysterious artifacts she's never seen. Investigating these strangers might lead her to discoveries that change the face of archaeology forever... or it might lead her and her best friend into a deadly monster's lair.

Leon Maxwell Gellert was born in 1892 in Walkerville, a suburb of Adelaide, South Australia. After an education at Adelaide High School, he embarked on a teaching career; first at Unley High School then later at the University of Adelaide’s Teacher Training College. Gellert enlisted with the AIF’s 10th Battalion within weeks of the outbreak of the World War I and sailed for Cairo in October 1914. He landed at Ari Burnu Beach, Gallipoli, in April 1915, but was wounded and repatriated as medically unfit just over a year later. He attempted to re-enlist but was soon found out. Back home in Adelaide, he returned to teaching. During the War Gellert had begun to write poetry and his first collection, Songs of a Campaign, was published in 1917 and favourably reviewed by the Bulletin. Angus & Robertson were suitably impressed and soon released a new edition, illustrated by Norman Lindsay. Gellert moved to Sydney where he taught English at Cleveland Street Intermediate High School until 1922. He then took to journalism and joined the staff at tabloid newspaper Smith’s Weekly. There he was introduced to the circle that included Sydney Ure Smith and Bertram Stevens. Gellert was appointed editor of Ure Smith’s Home magazine and co-editor of the quarterly Art in Australia which he took over following Stevens’ death in 1922. Gellert continued editing Home until 1942 when it ceased publication. He then became literary editor of the Sydney Morning Herald, writing the ‘Something Personal’ column in the Saturday issue as well as humorous columns for the Sunday Herald and the Sunday Telegraph. He returned to Adelaide after the death of his wife Kathleen in 1969, living in the suburb of Hazelwood Park. Leon Gellert died in 1977. Gavin Souter’s biography of Leon Gellert, A Torrent of Words, was first published in 1996 and is released here digitally for the very first time.
