Now a CBS All Access series: “A riveting tale of rocketry, the occult, and boom-and-bust 1920s and 1930s Los Angeles” (Booklist). The Los Angeles Times headline screamed: ROCKET SCIENTIST KILLED IN PASADENA EXPLOSION. The man known as Jack Parsons, a maverick rocketeer who helped transform a derided sci-fi plotline into actuality, was at first mourned as a scientific prodigy. But reporters soon uncovered a more shocking story: Parsons had been a devotee of the city’s occult scene. Fueled by childhood dreams of space flight, Parsons was a leader of the motley band of enthusiastic young men who founded the Jet Propulsion Laboratory, a cornerstone of the American space program. But Parsons’s wild imagination also led him into a world of incantations and orgiastic rituals—if he could make rocketry a reality, why not black magic? George Pendle re-creates the world of John Parsons in this dazzling portrait of prewar superstition, cold war paranoia, and futuristic possibility. Peopled with such formidable real-life figures as Howard Hughes, Aleister Crowley, L. Ron Hubbard, and Robert Heinlein, Strange Angel explores the unruly consequences of genius. The basis for a new miniseries created by Mark Heyman and produced by Ridley Scott, this biography “vividly tells the story of a mysterious and forgotten man who embodied the contradictions of his time . . . when science fiction crashed into science fact. . . . [It] would make a compelling work of fiction if it weren’t so astonishingly true” (Publishers Weekly).

Raised in the old-fashioned, blood-bought, sin-killing, devil-defeating, Jesus-lifting, Holy Ghost-anointed "clothes-line religion" that pervaded north Texas in the 1950s. Davis had his eye firmly fixed on a preaching career. When, as a 21-year-old Bible-student, he discovered and revealed that he was gay, his familiar world collapsed. He was born again in a most unexpected way--into the world that most of us know. Amazingly, he kept his faith. In Strange Angel, he brings it to bear on the hypocrisy and decay of the fundamentalist sects and, in the process, gives us a hilarious and touching account of growing up Pentecostal. He takes us into a world of beehive hairdos, miraculous healings, oversexed seminarians, and lots of joyful noise--cover.

In this first major collection in nearly a decade from a revered American poet, William Pitt Root concerns himself with those extremes—spiritual, physical, or both—at which social and cultural forms disintegrate, leaving the individual as an unshielded witness to transitioning miracles that induce a state of awe that cannot be diminished, diverted, or ignored. In poem after poem, Root compels the reader to discover that these key moments require the heart to open and the mind to still in order to fully accept whatever results, whether it is to suffer inconsolably or to discover new facets of wisdom. With an imagery that is by turns beautiful, tender, provocative, and terrifying, this collection signals the triumphant return of a poet of national renown.

Synchronicity + Serendipity + Divine Intervention + The Universe = Strange Angels. I started writing Strange Angels in 2016, and like with all the books I have ever written, at specific points in the writing process, I knew an event hadn’t happened yet, which was crucial to my finishing this book. With 99% of the book complete, I knew something was missing. So, I listened to my soul, and I gave it some space. Strange Angels is about how the people you meet in your life are for a specific reason. It is about how real-life events often simultaneously occur in your life to either renew your spirit or to answer a problem you have been trying to solve on your own, but haven’t. It is about stillness and plateaus and listening to your soul. I finished writing Strange Angels during the 2020 Coronavirus Pandemic, with the whole world shut down. Seeing the world in solitude, social distancing, and understanding who and what is essential in life was the event I needed to experience to finish writing this book. I understand the importance of interactions with people, the need to live life, of seeing the world, of knowing the effect we all have on one another, and that the invisible can be very powerful. I know more than anything else in this world when a life-changing event simplifies your life when it brings it to a standstill; it also gives you a gift; the ability to hear your soul. Your soul is always there for you, just on most days, life's noise drowns it out. When you strip away the noise of the world, one's soul becomes audible. The opportunity to clear the air, to be able to listen to our souls, is a gift. When we hear and listen to our souls, we are aligned. Life in soul alignment is the most valuable time in our lives. It is in soul alignment that the Divine orchestrates our journey. There is nothing more important. It is the Divinely orchestrated journey of our soul. So often, we make plans without ever listening to our soul, and we wonder why those plans peter out at some point. It is only after experiencing a life-changing event, where all we have or ever worked for is washed away in an instant, that we realize we are most rich. For, an extraordinary gift has been given to us. The gift is the clear audible pathway to hear our soul. I believe it is when we are in alignment with our soul that Strange Angels guide us to the next Divine dot in our lives. I have often tried to define what success is in life. I have concluded success for me, is living a life that is in alignment with my soul no matter life's circumstances; to recognize the people who speak to my soul, to partake in actions that make the sound of my soul louder, to trust in the process of life. When I do, I believe I am living successfully. To be able to recognize the Strange Angels your soul sends into your life, you must be aligned with your soul. Sometimes, it takes a life-changing event, like a world pandemic, to become soul-aligned. So be it. Welcome the Strange Angels in your life. Recognize when you are among them. Allow them to guide you to your next Divine dot. For, when the Divine dots of your life eventually all become connected, the portrait and true purpose of your life is revealed. ________ Strange Angels is the 4th book in the "Every Breath is Gold Series" Collection. It is a standalone book, although, I believe you will enjoy it more having read: Book 1 - 6 Minutes Wrestling with Life Book 2 - Again Book 3 - Your Soul Knows Book 4 - Strange Angels

Thus asked the little grave , and no grave could answer ; but a strange angel had
