The Flying Death from the Author: Samuel Adams. There is a murderer plaguing the off-season guests and inhabitants of small sea-side community on Long Island in 1902. But, that's not the whole story, because people are also being stalked and killed by a strange, nocturnal bird-like creature. the creature turns out to be a pre-historic dinosaur that somehow lived through the ages only to be assassinated by our heroes.The Flying Death begins: Stanley Richard Colton, M.D., heaved his powerful form to and fro in his bed and cursed the day he had come to Montauk Point, which chanced to be the day just ended. All the world had been open to him, and his father's yacht to bear him to whatsoever corner thereof he might elect, in search of that which, once forfeited, no mere millions may buy back, the knack of peaceful sleep. But his wise old family physician had prescribed the tip-end of Long Island. Except:Looking at his keen, pallid and deeply lined face, the young doctor set him down as a rather irritable fellow, and suspected dyspepsia. "Everybody will be going to the beach," he added. "If you follow along you'll probably get there.""Thanks," said Dick undisturbed. It was a principle of his that the ill-temper of others was no logical reason for ill-temper in himself. In this case his principle worked well, for Haynes said with tolerable civility:"You just came in this evening, didn't you?""Yes. I seem to have met the market for excitement."By this time they had reached the large living-room, where they found Mrs. Johnston presiding with ill-directed advice over the struggles of her grey-bearded husband to insert himself into a pair of boots of insufficient caliber.

On Death And Flying from the Author: Tim Martin. Chip Crandle has given the folks in his North Idaho town plenty to gossip about. Most agree that John and Scarlett Bradley got what they deserved. Others argue that, no matter how you slice it, what Chip did was wrong. They'll never suspect that Chip's startling act of justice wasn't only to save the Bradley's three daughters; it was the one way he could hope to redeem himself for failing to save his loved ones ... and to bring back his uncanny ability to fly. But the universe has bigger plans for Chip. As he flees across the lonely roads of the Great Plains, fate nudges Chip toward a stream of unlikely strangers: A sympathetic cop with secrets of her own, a teen with a singing dog who desperately needs Chip's forgotten magic, and a braided mystic with the power to guide Chip to a secret canyon where the ghosts of his past wait ... with a message that can change everything. To see the wisdom each offers, Chip will have to let go of his old fears and open his eyes to the impossible. On Death and Flying shines a light on the fears, doubts, and discoveries we all experience as our parents pass, children leave, careers end, and life moves on in unpredictable and often unjust ways toward the inevitable unknown.
