To Lose One's Soul

Exposing the Apostasy of the Religious Right

George Chumney

August 1, 2022

List Price: $11.50 PB

76 pages, black and white text

To Lose One’s Soul offers a collection of biblical meditations designed to clarify the blatant disparity between the faith that these folks profess and the political views that they espouse. Focusing attention on the practical implications of Scripture, Chumney challenges America’s white evangelicals and white Catholics to repudiate the pundits, politicians, and preachers who have led them astray and to rediscover what it means to follow Jesus.

Life in the Field

Ian W, Brown

August 1, 2022

List Price: $19.95 PB

192 pages, full color text

Combining memoir and diary accounts, Ian Brown examines five decades of personal archaeological research, especially regarding life in the field. Contained within this volume are a multitude of happenings that characterize most if not all fieldwork experiences, but seldom do they enter the final reports of excavations. The book is dedicated to Brown's many students because without them the adventures either would not have occurred or have been as colorful.

Kudzu on the Ivory Tower

From the Backwoods to an Academic Career

in the Deep, Deep South

Evan Peacock

August 2021

List Price: $22.95 PB

268 pages, full color text

Educated meets Dispatches from Pluto, but with more explosions. The story of an unlikely journey from a poverty-stricken upbringing in the Mississippi backwoods to a career in academic archaeology. Along the way one encounters homemade cannons, untethered nuclear bombs, zombie cheeseburgers, country music sycophants, demonic rodents, screaming wood, mechanical butts, grease sandwiches, ancient artifacts, and the deleterious consequences of racist thinking. Ultimately a story of love, family, and the redemptive power of education, Kudzu on the Ivory Tower is "a mélange of Franklin's Autobiography, Rousseau's Confessions, Chateaubriand's Memoirs from Beyond the Tomb, and The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn."

Still Rambling at Sixty-Nine

An Archaeologist's Memoir

Ian W. Brown

July 2021

List Price: $17.95 PB

148 pages, full color text

When Ian W. Brown retired in June of 2020, the Covid 19 pandemic was running rampant. The isolation that resulted from abrupt social distancing provided him with ample time to contemplate a life of doing archaeology in an academic setting, and how this came to pass. In sixteen essays he muses upon growing up in the late 20th century, touching upon subjects as wide ranging as "Home (A Short Story)," "Early Work," "Confessions of a Book Buyer," "Academia (I never Planned to be a College Professor)," "Games and Sports, a Preparation for Life)," "Life's Incidentals: The Drive-In Theater, The Circus, and the Fair," "The Point of Dancing," "What Do I Believe?" and many more, ending with his personal assessment of "2020-The Year of the Pandemic."

Flashes of Life

True Tales of the Extraordinary Ordinary

Pamela S. Wight

May 2021

List Price: $14.95 PB

140 pages, b/w text

Wow! Life goes by in a flash.

Philosophers and mystics ponder the mystery of these flashes. Pamela Wight writes about life flashes in her short stories that include family and friends, love and life’s challenges. Wight’s “Flash Memoir” promotes the belief that we all share sparks of the extraordinary that occur in our everyday life. Each short story is true and brings a smile of recognition to her readers: that life transports and enthralls us in all its confusing, amusing, challenging, and astonishing ways. Each story is light-hearted and short – like a flash – but be prepared for a page-turner that keeps you in your seat, smiling.
