There's a strange and wonderful event - the South African Million Dollar Pigeon Race - that each year draws pigeon fanciers to Johannesburg from around the globe. They're an odd, eccentric group, united only by their love of and obsession with their birds, who will fly more than 300 miles to complete the Million Dollar and then never race again.
In The Arc of the Sun, David Samuels goes to South Africa to travel along with the racers and their trainers, to learn about the millennia-old - and surprisingly emotional - history of the relationship between pigeons and humans, and to find himself, all while bouncing through the South African countryside with a flock of 2,000 birds and wrestling with the meaning of home in his own life.
In modern America, two soldiers will fight their way through the magical legacies of Poe and Hawthorne to destroy an undying evil - if they don't kill each other first.
US Army Captain Dale Morton is a magician soldier - a "craftsman." After a black-ops mission gone wrong, Dale is cursed by a Persian sorcerer and haunted by his good and evil ancestors. Major Michael Endicott, a Puritan craftsman, finds gruesome evidence that the evil Mortons, formerly led by the twins Roderick and Madeline, have returned, and that Dale might be one of them.
Dale uncovers treason in the Pentagon's highest covert ranks. He hunts for his enemies before they can murder him and Scherie, a new friend who knows nothing of his magic.
Endicott pursues Dale, divided between his duty to capture a rogue soldier and his desire to protect Dale from his would-be assassins. They will discover that the demonic horrors that have corrupted American magic are not bound by family or even death itself.
In Tom Doyle's thrilling debut, American Craftsmen, Seal Team Six meets ancient magic - with the fate of the United States hanging in the balance...

Every year, the good folks at the Shakespeare Theatre of New Jersey in Madison are faced with the same dilemma: what to present for a holiday offering to close off the year. If only Will Shakespeare had written a Christmas-themed play, but alas. So every December, the company either chooses an off-beat, non-Shakespearean, not-done-to-death production, or adapts one of the Bard’s plays to the season. Perhaps that’s why the current production of “Much Ado About Nothing” comes as such a pleasant and welcome surprise. It was truly inspired of director Scott Wentworth to give the play a World War II setting. Of course, “Much Ado About Nothing” is an extremely flexible work and has been adapted to all sorts of time periods. But World War II places “Much Ado” in the era of screwball comedies, when men were men and women were dames and snappy patter exchanged rapid-fire was all the rage. Wentworth has adopted that attitude and those rhythms to Shakespeare’s parallel stories of two couples, one young and one…errr… seasoned, and the result works like a charm. The centerpiece of “Much Ado,” a work from Shakespeare’s middle period, is the romance and engagement of Claudio, a high-ranking officer stationed in a foreign land with Hero, the only daughter of a local wealthy governor. Claudio can be a real stick in the mud, especially when he’s fooled into believing that his bride-to-be is an unfaithful wench. In this production, Charles Pasternak manages to make Claudio more naïve than prim, which is all to the good. But the real attraction of the play — the big shiny ornament on the tree as it were — is the relationship between her wise and independent cousin, Beatrice, and the wry, confirmed bachelor Benedict. Wentworth does double-duty as director and star, snagging the lead for himself. And he’s perfectly matched by Marion Adler as Beatrice because, not so incidentally, Adler is Wentworth’s real-life spouse. The time period also adds real heft to Beatrice’s frustration in not being in a position to defend her friend’s honor and her heartfelt wish to take on the self-righteous men. Translating the dukes and counts into American army officers also works out just fine even if the petty villainy of Don John (Michael Stewart Allen) is given rather. Source: www.dailyrecord.com
The always dependable Jeffrey M. Bender is actually rather restrained in the comic role of Dogberry (here, a clueless leader of the local Civilian Defense Corps), but he is ably aided and abetted by Conan McCarty as Verges, his assistant, whose timing
