Gunfighters, Thieves and Lawmen

Sully Wheeler doesn't care why his cattle are disappearing. He doesn't care why but it has to stop. Perhaps it's the cost of hiding from his past, but who would steal from a one-time gunfighter?

The NW Mounted Policeman that Sully contacted appeared more intent on stopping vigilante action than in stopping theft. If that proves to be the case, Sully will recover his own property, even if it takes gunfire to do it.

Who is this Mountie, anyway? Is he a cop or something else entirely? Is he working to support the crown, leave the crown or actually do something for the settlers?

And while we're talking about that Mountie, isn't he spending too much time with that newspaper lady?

Breaking Point, a novel by John Rhodes, tells the story of the Battle of Britain and the men and women who fought it...

It's August, 1940. Hitler's triumphant Third Reich has crushed all Europe—except Britain. As Hitler launches a massive aerial assault, only the heavily outnumbered British RAF and the iron will of Winston Churchill can stop him. The fate of Western civilization teeters in the balance. Johnnie Shaux, a Spitfire fighter pilot, knows that the average life expectancy of a pilot is a mere five hours of operational flying time. Sooner or later his luck will run out. Yet he must constantly summon up the fortitude to fly into conditions in which death is all but inevitable and continue to do so until the inevitable occurs…Meanwhile, Eleanor Rand, a WAAF staff officer in RAF headquarters, is struggling to find her role in a man's world and to make a contribution to the battle. She studies the control room maps that track the ebb and flow of conflict, the aerial thrust and parry, and begins to see the glimmerings of a radical strategic breakthrough…Breaking Point is based on the actual events of six days in the historic Battle of Britain. The story alternates between Johnnie, face to face with the implacable enemy; and Eleanor, in 11 Group headquarters, using ‘zero-sum' game theory to evolve a strategic model of the battle....

Renowned psychiatrist, Harley Swan, has had enough – enough of the patients with one too many personalities; enough of the psychopaths, sociopaths, depressed, disjointed, and delusional; enough of the wife who can't stand the sight of him, the colleagues who don't understand or appreciate him, and the friends who come and go with all the frequency and warmth of a wayward breeze.  Enough.

So, Harley sets out on a journey, hoping to extricate himself from a life so absurdly rooted, and, in the process, rise above the bewilderment and mendacity of a cold and chaotic world. But when the journey leads to a dead body here, and a dead body there, Harley finds himself on the run, trailed only by a long-buried secret, and the deranged cop who stumbles upon it.

Swan, now available wherever books are sold.

Education

By D.M. McGowan 2018

 

They taught us many things in school and some of us where fine

At following the words and rules along a designated line

A few were branded trouble when they left the proven trail

And popped the system bubble when they just refused to fail

 

“If you do exactly what we say you’re sure to get an “A”

Though you may not learn very much to help you through the day

But you’ll get the all important grade and be every politician’s dupe

For if you follow where you’re lead you’ll think they speak the truth”

 

What many didn’t see both students and the staff

It isn’t learning simple facts but how to love and laugh

Edison, Curie, Gates and Einstein they all had imagination

They didn’t follow another’s path or stay locked within their station.

 

Sure there is knowledge we all need in writing, science and math

Some we need more than others depending on our chosen path

And if you intend to just get along to do only as you’re told

What need for any new idea? What need to be so bold?

 

But if you intend to make a mark to be a Gates, or Jobs or Woz

You’ll need some imagination to be anywhere near the top

How do you exercise imagination, build its strength and survival?

Understand poetry, fiction and music to rise above any rival.

 

 

“Be less curious about people and more curious about ideas.” Marie Curie.

 

“The person, be it gentleman or lady, who has not pleasure in a good novel, must be intolerably stupid.”  Jane Austen

 

“Study the past and you’ll know your mistakes aren’t unique.” Dave McGowan
