“Witty, judicious and extremely well written, The Splendid Century is social history at its best.” -The New York Times

What was life like in France during the reign of its most glorious monarch, Louis XIV?

Known as the Sun King, he reigned for seventy-two years, in an age of growing decadence and absolutism in Europe.

His court was one of the most lavish places the world has ever scene as nobles and courtiers vied for patronage in the spectacular corridors and beautiful rooms of the Palace of Versailles.

W. H. Lewis’ brilliant account of this era The Splendid Century: Life in the France of Louis XIV does an exquisite job of bringing late seventeenth and early eighteenth century France to life.

The first chapter uncovers what Louis, this remarkable monarch that innumerable myths have developed around, was actually like.

This is followed by a stunning evocation of what life was like at the court, as brilliant political, military and cultural figures like Colbert, Mazarin, Louvois, the Grand Condé and Turenne, wandered through the corridors of power at Versailles.

Perhaps the most interesting section of the book, however, is Lewis’ account was life was life in France away from the court during this period. He explores the lives of the common people who struggled survive while those in Versailles gorged themselves, the emerging religious conflicts that developed across the nation, the marching army that followed Louis’ increasingly aggressive and expansionist orders, as well as the merchants and traders who tried to continue as normal through these turbulent years.

Zephyr I – Amazon
by Warren Hately
Rating: 4.5
Genre: Fantasy
Price: $0.00 Save $0.99
Make sure price is still $0.00 before clicking “Buy”.

Zephyr tells the story of a cynical, smart-mouthed superhero kicking ass as the whole world goes mad around him. The place is Atlantic City: a sweeping longitudinal metropolis rebuilt following widespread devastation in 1984. Superhumans are not only real, they’re human. All too human, as Nietzsche would say…

With his daughter getting into the business and his wife showing him the door, it’s easy to wonder if Zephyr’s life might be easier without his ever-growing powers as supervillains, extradimensional invasions and city-shaking calamities derail his best efforts handling life in a celebrity-mad alternate universe where Manhattan’s a mutant-infested ruin and the Beatles were a superhero team.

Zephyr I is a sardonic, cinematic and intelligent take on the standard Marvel/DC-type superhero genre. Imagine if American Psycho was about costumed vigilantes rather than stockbrokers and you have half the idea.

In Volume 1, Zephyr faces financial pressure to reform his old superhero team, saves his best friend Twilight, endures sexual blackmail, reconciles his daughter’s expulsion from high school, and deals with a close betrayal at the same time the star-god Hariss as-Sama prepares for its assault on Atlantic City.

Bookstore owner, Emily, is shy and insecure. She might wish she was one of those supremely confident, kick-butt kind of women, but she’s just . . . not. She’s content living on her small island, in the background, unobserved. And if a man–not that there are many–should show an interest in her, her reactions are predictable, disbelief, fear, and panic attacks.

Quinn, a brilliantly successful celebrity entrepreneur, has some thinking to do about his business and his life. To do that, he needs downtime, a break from the tabloids, red carpets, bright lights–and distance from a certain aggressive and very famous actress. Pastoral Salt Spring Island in the Pacific Northwest offers the perfect getaway, and it has a great bookstore. Quinn plans to do a lot of reading. Not in his plan is falling hard for Emily, the store’s timid, reclusive owner.

Quinn doesn’t get why such a beautiful woman hides behind books, glasses, and big sweaters, but he does understand himself. He knows what he feels is love. His challenge is convincing shy Emily to beat back her fears and love him back.

It all begins with a bike ride . . .

A secret hidden in plain sight. A devastating attack. And a world hanging in the balance.

There are a lot of things I wish I’d known earlier—but three top my “wow, she was naïve” list.

First—there are others on Pendomus.

Second—a prophecy is in motion & I hold the key to the survival of literally everything.

Third—I’m being hunted by a madman who is desperately trying to wipe me from existence.

So yeah, no pressure.
