[ALBERT SPEER] SCHMIDT Matthias  
Albert Speer, the End of a Myth

Translated by Joachim Neugroschel.
Schmidt argues that the bulk of the post war writing on Speer and his role in the Third Reich are based on Speer's own self portrayal of himself through his biography and interviews with the post war researchers.
He claims that either through design or self-deception, Speer has created an image of himself that, through hindsight has glossed over his active and willing participation in activities which, even though he has admitted his culpability for, he is still denying he pro-actively pursued.

[PSYCHIC QUESTING] COLLINS Andrew 
The Seventh Sword
Psychic Quest for King Arthur's Sword

"In 1979 the author and a psychic colleague went to a secluded pool in the heart of England. Under the cover of darkness they unearthed a sword bearing Mary Queen of Scot's personal monogram and an inscription proclaiming Meonia fore Marye. Meonia; the name given to a green jewel believed to be the Philosophers Stone of the alchemists. Soon after a green jewel was discovered inside a seventeenth-century brass casket....a twelve year quest of supernatural drama, spectral visitations and confrontations with sinister forces. One by one five further swords, all identical to the first , surfaced under mysterious circumstances....the search is on to uncover their maker, their purpose, their ultimate use, and, of course the seventh and final Sword of Meonia". In 1989 the author and a colleague located and unearthed a sword which they believed had been made from a sword belonging to King Arthur. When he appeared on television with his discovery, five other people came forward who, as a result of dreams or visions, had found other swords belonging to the set of seven. According to legend, when the seven swords are brought together there will be a last battle with the forces of evil. At the end of the 19th century a group of Masons supposedly tried to bring the swords together but were defeated by an ancient occult conspiracy. The Masons dispersed and buried the swords in various places around the country. Now the author invites the reader to help him with the renewed quest for the seventh sword of destiny.

For five years journalist Anne Jeffers has pursued the horrifying story of a serial killer's bloody reign, capture, trial, and appeal, crusading to keep the wheels of justice churning toward the electric chair.
Now the day of execution has come and a convicted killer will meet his end.
Anne believes her long nightmare is over. But she's dead wrong. Within days, a similar murder stuns the city.
As the butcher stalks his next victims, creeping ever closer to her, Anne is seized by an icy unease, a haunting sense of connection to these unspeakable crimes.
Rlentlessly, she hears the eerie echo of the dead man's last words to her: "Today won't end it. How will you feel, Anne? When I'm dead, and it all starts again, how will you feel?"

WOODS Richard  
Symbion; Spirituality for a possible future.

Symbion speaks to a New Age spirituality which enables us to move ahead responsibly into a human future, where we recover and develop a basic spirituality which is person-centered, holistic, socially constructive and ecologically sound... to the simple gifts where we see our spirituality is the way we live the future in the present whether gracefully or to our ultimate condemnation. Symbion recognizes that we must see that the stakes are high. Symbion speaks to extrovert meditation recognizing the spiritual necessity that works of craft, music, art, and body hold fast in a world apparently going loose at its seams. Symbion demonstrates that crafts concretely remind us of who we are, where we have come from and what is important. Symbion suggests guidelines for finding guides for our individual pilgrimages. Symbion faces the issues of dissipating personal and environmental energies as a supreme spiritual challenge which no spirituality adequate to the needs of the present or the future may neglect. Richard Woods is a Dominican friar with a Doctorate in the Philosophy of Religion from Loyola University in Chicago where he teaches theology and contemporary spirituality. He is also adjunct professor in the psychiatry department at Stritch School of Medicine. His major interests concern religious experience, mysticism and human sexuality.
