Psychology provides the option of two thinking and reasoning languages. One is grounded in the assumptions of a natural science, the other is rooted in pseudo-scientific ideology. The choice between these two languages determines how one thinks and reasons. The non-labeling language of science guides one's thinking to behavioral explanation, based on observed truths. The other, the labeling language of main-stream psychologies, reduces one's thinking to assuming behavior can be explained by believed-in abstract constructed determiners. The Natural Science Of Event-Based (E-B) Psychology, is the only applied psychology that is grounded in the psycholinguistic assumptions of a natural science.

BIRDING IN THE FACE OF TERROR

BIRDING IN THE FACE OF TERROR

$18.95
More Info

How would our lives be different if we could weather the storms of tragedy and loss without fear? What if the fearlessness were not a result of isolation from others or insulation in comforting beliefs, but of full immersion in uncertainty, armed only with the trust that what we perceive as the entirety of a lifetime is nothing compared to what Life really is?

With the raw, surreal events of September 11, 2001 as the backdrop, "Birding in the Face of Terror" is told by two parallel narrators, Joseph and Pedro, facing the same spiritual crisis. Both must use their scattershot religious and philosophical background to come to grips with psychological exiles of their own devising. Joseph, trapped by circumstance as an eyewitness to the terrifying events on the East Coast, is forced from his agoraphobic shell into a hero's role. Pedro is secluded and silenced on the West Coast, left to plumb his own interior landscape to make sense of it all. The saving grace of connection comes in ways both ordinary and mysterious when a kindred clan of mystics from the Heartland emerge, offering a middle road between their extremes.

As John Donne famously told us, "No man is an island." "Birding" contemplates this timeless truth anew, unveiling answers both familiar and revolutionary. Though it flips the bird in the face of our post-9/11 security hysteria and de facto state religion, it does so by pointing toward an alternate way of seeing that confounds common assumptions about who we are. While tipping some of our most sacred cows, it also makes space for everyday miracles to work their wonders through characters who never expected themselves to be holy. The result is an upwelling inspiration, steeped in a no-nonsense pantheistic spirituality that will speak to today's savvy, multicultural truth seekers.

"Birding" is an antidote for our age of anxiety, a hopepunk testament of love and wholeness for a culture broken by fear.

"Startlingly original and deeply moving.... Chang here establishes herself as one of the most important of the new generation of American writers." -- George Saunders

A Recommended Book From

Buzzfeed * USA Today * New York Magazine * O, the Oprah Magazine * Parade * Wired * Electric Literature * The Millions * San Antonio Express-News * Domino

A wry, tender portrait of a young woman--finally free to decide her own path, but unsure if she knows herself well enough to choose wisely--from a captivating new literary voice

The plan is to leave. As for how, when, to where, and even why--she doesn't know yet. So begins a journey for the twenty-four-year-old narrator of Days of Distraction. As a staff writer at a prestigious tech publication, she reports on the achievements of smug Silicon Valley billionaires and start-up bros while her own request for a raise gets bumped from manager to manager. And when her longtime boyfriend, J, decides to move to a quiet upstate New York town for grad school, she sees an excuse to cut and run.

Moving is supposed to be a grand gesture of her commitment to J and a way to reshape her sense of self. But in the process, she finds herself facing misgivings about her role in an interracial relationship. Captivated by the stories of her ancestors and other Asian Americans in history, she must confront a question at the core of her identity: What does it mean to exist in a society that does not notice or understand you?

Equal parts tender and humorous, and told in spare but powerful prose, Days of Distraction is an offbeat coming-of-adulthood tale, a touching family story, and a razor-sharp appraisal of our times.

The world celebrated with the development of Artificial Intelligence in the middle of the twenty-first century and established a robot singularity. In order to create an elite standard of living, most jobs were replaces with these robots. After the discovery that the uncountable could not be coerced, the armies of robots that inhabited every part of the workforce were recalled and replaced by a robot force that was tethered by a single computer run by the central government. The Agency that once protected the nation from malicious foreign influences was turned inward and trained to hunt and eliminate the members of the robot singularity.

Many years later, enthralled in a government conspiracy to destabilize the sovereign nations of the Americas in order to create a world government, a lone robot disappears with a dangerous antigen stolen from a government laboratory. Believing that the robot had been hacked by a terrorist group, the Agency was brought in to find it. Unable to locate the robot, the agency must hire Bob Sags, a retired agent turned person finder, to track down and eliminate the wayward robot. During his investigation when things do not add up, Bob is declared an enemy of the state and becomes hunted. It becomes a race against time when Bob realizes that the only way to clear his name is to find the robot before the Agency does.

The Dead Are the Only Lucky Ones Among Us.

Portents of evil. Dreams of destruction, chaos, death. Feelings of terrible foreboding, heavy as the dark skies before a storm hits.

Within twenty-four hours, the sudden and nearly universal presentiment of doom experienced by folks in the peaceful beach town of Furness, California is found to be horrifyingly accurate when a handful of people wake up to find that their friends, families, and loved ones--in fact, most of the inhabitants of the Earth--have simultaneously vanished without a trace.


Left behind to make sense of a strange and depopulated world are an odd assortment of people. A wry and jaded psychic who knows good and well that her fortunetelling is a sham--until the day it begins to come true. A kind, idealistic registered nurse. A thirteen-year-old science nerd. A church custodian. An outspoken, pragmatic physicist. A volatile and unpredictable bakery owner. A tough-as-nails ex-Army sergeant with a terrible secret, who is determined that he'll survive this, even if it's at the cost of the others.


But they soon discover that they're not the only ones trying to find their way through the empty streets of Furness. Because the cataclysm that took 99% of the Earth's inhabitants did one other thing.

It released the monsters.

Adam Chance is the quintessential Sixties man. He saw The Beatles at Shea Stadium, went to Woodstock and was active in the Antiwar movement. Then, he wrote about the counterculture in his best-selling book, WALDEN PAVED OVER. Now, in the 1990s, Adam finds himself middle aged, divorced and suffering from every author's nightmare ... writer's block. An understanding therapist suggests that he keep a journal to do a life review. The effect is liberating. No longer does he have to worry about word limits and cranky editors. He's totally free to express his point of view and explore new writing styles. Adam recalls sharing a pizza with Jim Morrison in a Greek restaurant. He reminisces about a transcendent conversation with John Lennon in Central Park. He balances satire and parody by imagining a 'Sixties Sell-Out' awards ceremony, composing a list of 60 things he fears might happen and writing the script for the final episode of STAR TREK. Adam's fondest memories are of his childhood with best friend, Midnight Duke. In the Summer of 1963, Adam and Midnight climb the Giant's Chair, a huge rock formation located in the rolling hills beyond their back yards. The two boys remain friends into adulthood as they pass through different phases of their lives. Then tragedy strikes and each man must cope with the outcome on his own level. Eventually, both friends are led back to the Giant's Chair. Adam gives himself permission to explore his spiritual side. He immerses himself in books on mind/body healing and practices meditation. He seeks forgiveness from his ex-wife, desires reconciliation with an estranged brother and celebrates the unique qualities of the Sixties generation. Adam's road to understanding contains a few bumps along the way, but his journal becomes the path to renewal. Ultimately, Adam Chance discovers an answer that has always been inside him ... a basic truth as old as time itself.

What if your future lies in your past?

When Darren Ault meets his friend Lee McCaskill for dinner, he doesn't expect the second course to be a gunshot to the head. Even more unexpected is the fact that the bullet doesn't kill him--instead, it causes the rest of humanity to vanish. Darren's attempted murder has caused a temporal paradox extending back over a thousand years, and now it's up to him to repair the damage.

Embarking on a mind-bending journey through time, Darren encounters Vikings, a depressed Norwegian silversmith, a cult that believes in salvation through pain, a beautiful Hebridean lass, and Archibald Fischer--the foul-mouthed, Kurt Cobain-worshiping Head Librarian of the Library of Timelines, where all of the possibilities that could ever happen are catalogued, tracked, and managed.

When a group of outcasts with extraordinary abilities comes out of hiding, their clash with a violent society will spark a revolution--or an apocalypse.

"Much like the X-Men comics, Proehl masterfully uses science fiction as a lens to examine social inequality and human evil."--Booklist

Avi Hirsch has always known his daughter was different. But when others with incredible, otherworldly gifts reveal themselves to the world, Avi realizes that her oddness is something more--that she is something more. With this, he has a terrifying revelation: Emmeline is now entering a society where her unique abilities unfairly mark her as a potential threat. And even though he is her father, Avi cannot keep her safe forever.

Emmeline soon meets others just like her: Carrie Norris, a teenage girl who can turn invisible . . . but just wants to be seen. Fahima Deeb, a woman with an uncanny knack for machinery . . . but it's her Muslim faith that makes the U.S. government suspicious of her.

They are the nobody people--ordinary individuals with extraordinary gifts who want one only thing: to live as equals in an America that is gripped by fear and hatred. But the government is passing discriminatory laws. Violent mobs are taking to the streets. And one of their own--an angry young man seething with self-loathing--has used his power in an act of mass violence that has put a new target on the community. The nobody people must now stand together and fight for their future, or risk falling apart.

The first book of a timely two-part series, The Nobody People is a powerful novel of love and hope in the face of bigotry that uses a world touched by the fantastic to explore our current reality. It is a story of family and community. It is a story of continuing to fight for one another, no matter the odds. It is the story of us.

Bob Proehl will return with The Somebody People!

Still unfamiliar with the magical powers that surge through her, she struggles to wield the magic within her. Clebis DeGalis, an aging soldier charged with the protection of the kingdom, sent Dar to the land of the elves on the far side of the island to forge an alliance against the northern barbarians who had invaded the countryside.

Duncan Kyle is an ordinary twenty-something whose simple life of sports, job, and girlfriend comes to a crashing halt late one night when he falls through the floor of his apartment. He finds himself in Malkuth, a desolate, desiccated world where the only living beings are a sardonic Sphinx and her invisible caretakers, who in this frigid place are drawn to anything warm. He is told by the Sphinx that he will have to make his way through ten worlds before he can return to life as he knows it--the ten emanations of the Sephirot. On his journey, Duncan encounters a wild huntress torn between making love to him or killing him; an elderly woman who tries to convince him that he has been ill and dreamed the whole thing; a scarlet-robed judge who sentences him to be whipped and executed for performing evil magic; a kind potter and his daughter who take him in and heal his injuries; and a timid, soft-spoken Methodist minister who helps him survive in a place where all hell breaks loose--literally--once the sun goes down. In every world he visits, though, one thing stays the same. Duncan has to rely on his wits alone to stay alive and find his way to the next portal, and he has to summon the strength of will to keep going--because if he falls for the snare each world represents, he'll never find his way home.

Poetry. By turns mystical and realist, Mary Gilliland's intensely musical poems consider global apocalypse--'our course set for the destitute sunset'--but also celebrate the generative power of creativity. With preternatural empathy, she enters fascinating sensibilities--Virginia Woolf, Nikola Tesla--and sings 'the troubled music' of history. Gilliland's sinewy, nuanced poems understand earth--and consciousness--as gardens that no walls or enchantments can protect. Her vision is profound, enduring.--Alice Fulton

Mary Gilliland's THE RUINED WALLED CASTLE GARDEN casts a sidelong glance at the human comedy in various times and places. Here a 'stubbled saint' stumbles into our contemporary world; the rush of life stops with a milennial 'where-were-you party.' Marked by compression, surprise, originality of language, a confident and eloquent voice cuts to the essential.--Mary Crow

Like the apothecarist Keats, Mary Gilliland's poetry wells up from the healing force of unheard melodies. Her tensile lyric and fluent narrative grasp the sweet otherness in life, which is 'Eve's radical helplessness' to endure and bear intimate witness to both change and permanence. THE RUINED WALLED CASTLE GARDEN is a radiant testimony--and a triumph--of an unerring ear I deeply cherish.--Ishion Hutchinson

"If you remember the Sixties, you weren't there." So goes the familiar joke line, but it's not true. There are millions of people who remember the Sixties. However, they aren't only the famous actors, well-known musicians, or familiar talking heads who usually show up in most retrospectives. Instead, they are every day Americans whose lives were changed forever by the events and experiences of the Sixties. Those influences shaped their occupations, values, and dreams. Now is the time for them to share personal histories and write about their lives. Marc Catone has done just that. His book, "Until The Birds Chirp: Reflections On The Sixties" is a generational memoir. What Marc learned during the Sixties has remained with him throughout his life, affecting who he is and what he believes. His politics, spiritual beliefs, and relationships have all been shaped by that decade. "Until the Birds Chirp: Reflections On The Sixties", contains vignettes of life altering experiences from his childhood, teen, and young adult years. Personal and generational narratives merge to form Sixties themes about racism, war, and freedom as well as the influences of Rock, sex and TV. Marc was 13 years old when JFK was killed and his father lost his business, had his heart broken the night before he listened to "Sgt. Pepper" for the first time, marched on his college campus the same afternoon that the Kent State Four were murdered, and fell in love with his future wife as they campaigned for George McGovern in New Hampshire. The effects of those events on Marc's life, and the Sixties Generation as a whole, are detailed within the pages of "Until the Birds Chirp: Reflections On The Sixties".
