Book Description
For seventeen years, Elaine served her master, Satan, with total commitment. Then she met Dr. Rebecca Brown, who served her master, Jesus Christ, with equal commitment. Elaine, one of the top witches in the U.S., clashed with Dr. Brown, who stood against her alone. In the titanic life-and-death struggle that followed, Dr. Brown nearly lost her life. Elaine, finding a power and love greater than anything Satan could give her, left Satan and totally committed her life to Jesus Christ. In this honest, in-depth account of Satan's activities today, you'll see how to recognize and combat the many satanists who regularly infiltrate and destroy Christian churches; recognize and combat satanic attacks; and recognize those serving Satan, and bring them to Jesus Christ.

Panama City Beach
Jan Smith

Feb 2005
Paperback

Book Description
Considered one of the world's most beautiful beaches for its sugar white sand and emerald blue-green waters, Panama City Beach has, until recently, remained one of Florida's undiscovered treasures. First documented by Spanish explorers in the 1500s and later by the English, the region remained unsettled because of its inaccessibility and marauding renegade inhabitants. At a time when property was valued according to the crops it could grow, the beach was dismissed as a "no man's land" unsuitable for habitation. The early 1930s and the Hathaway Bridge, connecting Panama City Beach to the mainland, marked its "discovery" and the beginning of area tourism.

Astrology through a Psychic's Eyes
Sylvia Browne
1561707201
September 2000
Paperback
·
 
Book Review
Although she does not bill herself as a professional astrologer, psychic Sylvia Browne has some strong opinions on how astrology plays into life on earth (as well as the afterlife). "I promise you that you will not read any of this information in any other astrology book," writes Browne. "This work represents my personal observations from 30 years as a professional psychic." Instead of specific predictions, this compact book offers general astrology tips. For example, she asserts that premature babies are probably trying to assure that they're born under the right sign. Other tips include: "Most of the time fire and air signs go every well together," and "A rule of thumb is that you are compatible with people three signs removed from you." Readers can also look up Browne's specific thoughts and psychic insights...

The Gifts of the Body

Paperback

From Publishers Weekly
The unnamed narrator of this beautifully controlled, immensely affecting novel, is a home care aid who helps those afflicted with AIDS. In a series of brief chapters written in casually vernacular language, Brown depicts this woman's visits to a varied group of victims, including young gay men, an elderly widow infected through a blood transfusion and a fellow volunteer. The narrator brings to them the gifts of tender care, compassion and respect. They in turn give her the gifts of insight, openness and intimacy; they teach her about dignity and courage. She observes the inexorability of their decline: young men prematurely moribund, "like a bunch of 95-year-olds watching their generation die." She understands the ironies: the anxious wait for a room at a hospice and the realization that "when you actually got...


Blue Is for Nightmares
Laurie Faria Stolarz

Paperback
·
 
From School Library Journal
Grade 7-10-Stacey's nightmares have proven to tell the future in the past, and now they have returned. The person who is in danger in the teen's dreams is her roommate. Determined to discover who is out to kill Drea, the protagonist performs a series of spells taught to her by her grandmother to ferret out the murderer. Seemingly, all of the girls' friends and acquaintances are suspects. This mystery will initially attract readers who are into Wicca and spells, but may not be successful in keeping their interest. Stacey's bedwetting (at age 16) is a troublesome plot point that remains mostly unresolved at the end. The girls' adventures are unfettered by adults for the most part, and since the story takes place at a boarding school, it is hard to believe that so much could go on unnoticed. Stolarz's first...

Review
"Rebecca Brown’s prose is like Shaker furniture: simple, strong, and useful, in the most beautiful sense. She writes here of loss and love with as much truth as necessary and far more poetry."—Amy Bloom, author of Come to Me

"Excerpts from a Family Medical Dictionary is by someone who is (and should not be) the great secret of American letters, Rebecca Brown. [It is] what great books should be: relevant, urgent, honest, true."—Dale Peck, Interview

“The way family crisis brings family memory into play; the way timing and delivery have a crucial role in how medical information is absorbed by family members; the way generational role-reversal introduces an element of make-believe into an all-too-real situation--Brown captures it all, with special attention to the...

The Terrible Girls
Rebecca Brown

June 1992
Paperback
·
 
From Publishers Weekly
Brown's ( The Children's Crusade ) collection of short stories is not for the light-hearted or optimistic. Throughout she traces unfulfilled lesbians in unsuccessful relationships, bearing burdens of pain that cannot be purged even by self-mutilation. The symbolic meaning underneath these often allegorical tales is most directly presented in a story about a woman carrying a burdensome bag on her back. Even after burying the bag, the narrator cannot escape its weight and remains waiting. The women who inhabit these gothic landscapes are all waiting for something, whether the commitment of a lover caught up in her own life or the return of a lover for whom a narrator has given her right arm, quite literally. Unfortunately, Brown is not able to present any picture of what sort of fruit all of this waiting around...

Annie Oakley's Girl

From Library Journal
Obsession, jealousy, and thoughts of death are the essence of this surrealistic short story collection by Brown ( The Terrible Girls , City Lights, 1992). In the title story, "Annie," a young girl is obsessed with Annie Oakley and everything Western, but obsession turns to disappointment when Annie Oakley arrives in the big city to promote Western fashions. In "Folie a Deux," a couple becomes blind and deaf to share each other's senses and isolate themselves from the outside world. This experiment creates a dependency that destroys their relationship. "A Good Man" is the moving story of a young man dying of AIDS and his friendship with a woman who will not desert him during his illness. In "The Death of Napoleon," a woman becomes obsessed with the image of killing Napoleon, who is really a symbol for the lover she...

The Dogs
Rebecca Brown
0872863441
Sept 1998
Paperback
·
 
Book Review
The many devotees of Rebecca Brown's compressed, lyrical prose will find The Dogs her most accomplished piece of fiction yet--a taut, beautifully sustained meditation on power, savagery, and piercing self-knowledge. Whether drawing on fairy tales, medieval Christian allegories, or the conceit of the bestiary (her precursors are Robert Coover, Angela Carter, and other wordsmiths of the fantastic), Brown manages to turn a wealth of allusions and images to her own grim purposes. Do a pack of cruel, increasingly human Dobermans inhabit the narrator's modest studio apartment, forcing her to do their bidding? And, if so, why doesn't she leave? What has happened to her self-esteem--or, in fact, to herself, her fragile body, with its pale, hairless paws, its two measly teats (so annoying, so ridiculous to the dogs), its useless...
