There's a brand new look to my Parsina Press web site--not just a new color scheme and a more streamlined appearance, but new features as well: a wider choice of buy-links, images of past book covers, reviews, a lot more information.

Plus, to celebrate the redesign, I've got a special limited-time offer for my fans: many of my prime ebook titles are 1/2 off with the coupon codes on this page. Some of the books, like And Not Make Dreams Your Master, Polly!, and Assault on the Gods, will definitely appeal to free-thinkers. There's even a bonbon--a free copy of my story "The World Where Wishes Worked." The coupons expire at the end of the year, so I hope you'll come on over soon and take a look around. Let me know what you think, and pleasant reading!

Has anyone read Shantaram?  Just read it and enjoyed it very much.  Highly recommended!

Regardless, my joke was about the fact that you wouldn't expect Richard Dawkins and Glenn Beck to give the same book a good review, even if Beck only gave it a good review because of their friendship.

Penn Jillette and Glenn Beck are good friends.  They don't agree on a damned thing, theologically speaking, but apparently they get along great, in person.  Remember, Penn Jillette is a major Libertarian.

I got the new Penn Jillette book, "God, No!" and here's the weirdest thing about it.  On the back cover you see positive reviews from bith Richard Dawkins and Glenn Beck.  I'm scared, is one of the signs of the apocalypse when Richard Dawkins and Glenn Beck agree on something? :(

I "read" an audio book titled Final Theory. A sci-fi book that if you look at the current prices for the book on Amozon, it wasn't that good, but I liked it. Here is what Amazon says about it:

A Spellbinding Thriller about a Science History Professor on the Run for his Life and an Unpublished Einstein Theory that Could Change the World Debut novelist Mark Alpert brings one of the most explosive books of 2008, seamlessly weaving current issues of science, history, and politics with white-knuckle chases. David Swift, a professor at Columbia University, is called to the hospital to comfort his mentor, a physicist who's been brutally tortured. Before dying, the old man wheezes "Einheitliche Feldtheorie." The Theory of Everything. The Destroyer of Worlds. Could this be Einstein's proposed Unified Theory--a set of equations that combines the physics of galaxies with the laws of atoms? Einstein never succeeded in discovering it. Or did he? Within hours of hearing his mentor's last words, David is running for his life. The FBI and a ruthless mercenary are vying to get their hands on the long-hidden theory. Teaming up with his old girlfriend, a brilliant Princeton scientist, David frantically works out Einstein's final theory to reveal the staggering scope of its consequences. With publishers around the world snapping up rights in twenty-two countries, the book has already become a global phenomenon, and the dynamic characters and gripping plot will keep readers compulsively turning the pages until the very end.

thanks Dallas, that's legendary - I pm-ed Calla ages ago but she's obviously non-operational. Could you also add my book on free will?

Please pardon my bragging, but my fantasy novel Polly!, a satire about religion, just got another great review, this time from Frida Fantastic. She says, in part, "The story is comparable to the Frank Capra film It’s a Wonderful Life, but it speaks to non-religious skeptics and has a weirdness that makes it more interesting."

 

And while I'm here, I'll point out my story Portrait of the Artist as a Young God, which might be of some interest to the non-theistically minded.

I've friended you so I can PM / send it to you. Cheers. That's all for now for the free copies!
