What do people see as death approaches? What will Heaven be like? What will Hell be like? An Army In Heaven records the deathbed visions of hospice patients, as well as those in a critical care setting who have died and then returned to describe their experience on the other side. Read about their accounts of Heaven and Hell, their visions of loved ones who have long traversed to the other side. Compassionate and compelling, this book retells their experiences. Their accounts are moving, edifying and sometimes disturbing, as cases of terrible abuse, neglect and even the demonic are also witnessed. Written by the nurse assigned to their care, An Army In Heaven is a compilation of their stories, what they saw on the other side and what they see as the veil thins during the dying process. It will change how you view life and most importantly, how you view death.

Finally! The much anticipated sequel to Cinema Symbolism is here! Cinema Symbolism 2: More Esoteric Imagery in Popular Movies explores the hidden symbolism and esoteric imagery in such movies as Crimson Peak, the Harry Potter Saga, The Chronicles of Narnia, Blue Velvet, Mulholland Drive, Suspiria, From Hell, Black Swan, Angel Heart, Fantasia, Eyes Wide Shut, The Lion King, Maleficent, Watchmen, The Shining, Halloween III: Season of the Witch, The Good, the Bad and the Ugly, Gangs of New York and many more.

Cinema Symbolism 2 unveils some of cinema's greatest mysteries. For example, The Shining's Stuart Ullman wears red, white, and blue and has an American flag on his desk because the Overlook Hotel is the embodiment of the sinister side of American patriotism. The Overlook Hotel was built on an Indian burial ground symbolizing the United States, which was likewise forged at the expense of the Native American nations thus "burying them" which most tend to overlook hence the hotel's apt name. Indians were placed on Reservations; as such the hotel has no choice but to incorporate some "Navajo and Apache motifs," according to Ullman. Did you know that Albus Dumbledore personifies the legendary Hellenistic Egyptian sage Thoth Hermes Mercurius Trismegistus Or that in Magic, the Fats dummy was created specifically to look like Anthony Hopkins in order to symbolize the shadow self of his character, Charles "Corky" Withers. Likewise, 9½ Weeks' Elizabeth McGraw is consumed by a fetish for black silk stockings which enables her to release her dark sensual side, allowing her to alchemically embrace her erotic shadow.

Captured in the lobby of the Sheraton Senator Hotel at LAX following a fifteen-year run smuggling marijuana and hashish as part of the hippie mafia, Richard Stratton began a new journey. Kingpin tells the story of the eight years that followed, through two federal trials and the underworld of the federal prison system, at a time when it was undergoing unprecedented expansion due to the War on Drugs. Stratton was shipped by bus from LA's notorious Glass House to jails and prisons across the country, a softening process known as diesel therapy. Resisting pressure to falsely implicate his friend and mentor, Norman Mailer, he was convicted in his second trial under the kingpin statute and sentenced to twenty-five years without the possibility of parole. While doing time in prisons from Manhattan's Criminal Hilton to rural Pennsylvania, Virginia, Kentucky, and New York, he witnessed brutality as well as camaraderie, rampant trafficking of contraband, and crimes by both guards and convicts. He first learned the lessons of survival. Then he learned to prevail, becoming a jailhouse lawyer and winning the reversal of his kingpin sentence and eventual release.
