The Smuggler S Ghost from the Author: Steve Lamb. When marijuana turned a Florida teen into a millionaire fugitive. According to a 1983 article entitled "Tales of some who are citizens of the world" that appeared in the St. Petersburg Times, Steve Lamb was "one of Pinellas County's most renowned smugglers" and was being investigated in various states, including Michigan, North Carolina, New Mexico, and Nevada. When millions of rebellious college students and high schoolers sat smoking the same thing and singing the same songs, Steve Lamb was practicing the laws of supply and demand, hop-scotching through the Caribbean in search of his first million dollars. I was in Federal Law enforcement during the sixties and seventies, worked hundreds of narcotic cases and thought I'd either seen or heard everything there was about drugs and drug trafficking. I was wrong. The Smugglers Ghost straightened me out. It's a page turner. -Bernie Rhoades, Chief U. S. Probation and Parole Officer for the District of Utah (ret.), author of D. B. Cooper, the Real McCoy. A gripping, heart-thumping ride-along with smugglers as they buy boatloads of marijuana in Jamaica and spirit them into Florida. They elude determined cops, corrupt some others, make a pile of money. And some live to tell the tale. And that's just one facet of this compelling, first-person true story of the man who came to be known as "one of Pinellas County's most renowned smugglers." -Frank C. Strunk, author of Jordon's Wager, Jordon's Showdown, and Throwback. The story of Steve Lamb is Florida history in its finest telling. Too often as we look back at the events that shaped our present world we forget to look at the person who emerges from our midst to cause social change that could never have been predicted. If you smoked your first joint at a rock concert in the sixties or seventies then you might want to read the saga of one of the men who made it possible. -Gene Proulx, Special Agent in Charge of NOAA's Southeast Region, (ret.), Offfice of Law Enforcement, author of Fresh Catch.

Ghost Talkers from the Author: Mary Robinette Kowal. “Powerful, laden with emotion, and smartly written.” —Brandon Sanderson, author of Mistborn and The Way of Kings A brilliant historical fantasy novel from acclaimed author Mary Robinette Kowal featuring the mysterious spirit corps and their heroic work in World War I. Ginger Stuyvesant, an American heiress living in London during World War I, is engaged to Captain Benjamin Harford, an intelligence officer. Ginger is a medium for the Spirit Corps, a special Spiritualist force. Each soldier heading for the front is conditioned to report to the mediums of the Spirit Corps when they die so the Corps can pass instant information about troop movements to military intelligence. Ginger and her fellow mediums contribute a great deal to the war efforts, so long as they pass the information through appropriate channels. While Ben is away at the front, Ginger discovers the presence of a traitor. Without the presence of her fiancé to validate her findings, the top brass thinks she's just imagining things. Even worse, it is clear that the Spirit Corps is now being directly targeted by the German war effort. Left to her own devices, Ginger has to find out how the Germans are targeting the Spirit Corps and stop them. This is a difficult and dangerous task for a woman of that era, but this time both the spirit and the flesh are willing...

Ghost Hunter S Casebook from the Author: Bowen Pearse. Andrew Green was for sixty years one of Britain's most active and best-known ghost-hunters. The Daily Telegraph famously christened him 'the Spectre Inspector'. The author of best-sellers such as 'Our Haunted Kingdom' and 'Ghost Hunting, a Practical Guide', he investigated hundreds of reported hauntings during his career, from famous cases such as 'the poltergeist girl of Battersea' to cases where a client had simply taken the wrong medication before bed. His interest in the supernatural began on a summer's day in 1944. As he explored the roof of a haunted house, a compulsion suddently gripped him - 'Walk over the edge', it urged. Only his father's intervention saved him; he later discovered that several other visitors had not been as fortunate. This experience resulted in a life-long fascination with the paranormal, and the most important cases from his lifetime of research are collected together in this volume - alongside new research and many reports that have never previously been published. This is an essential guide to the career of Britain's most famous ghost-hunter, and indeed to the paranormal history of 'our haunted kingdom'.
