Summary

While Made in L.A. Volume 1 was rooted in Los Angeles, this volume focuses on goals, dreams, and the distant horizon. Chasing the Elusive Dream explores the fantasies people carry with them to L.A., as well as the dreams Angelenos dream while surrounded by this vast and evolving city.

 
This anthology series showcases a diverse range of voices and genres. Like the City of Angels where these stories were born, nothing is off-limits. Literary or contemporary, fantasy or science fiction, each story in this volume invites you to view this urban landscape through a different lens.

 
Made in L.A. Writers came into being because local readers expressed their desire, en masse, for stories about Los Angeles. As a collaborative of Los Angeles-based writers who are dedicated to nurturing and promoting indie fiction, our work is both influenced and illuminated by our hometown and underpinned by the extraordinary, multifaceted, and often surreal culture and life in L.A.

    A riveting account of the search for a “latter-day Jack the Ripper” in New England: “Rich with characterization and insight, and a real page-turner” (Jonathan Kellerman). In the mid-1980s, someone stabbed six women to death in the Connecticut River Valley on the border between New Hampshire and Vermont. The murderer remains at large and the total number of his victims is unknown. In this brilliant work of true crime reportage, New York Times–bestselling author Philip E. Ginsburg provides fascinating insights into the groundbreaking forensic methods used to track the killer and paints indelible portraits of the lives he cut so tragically short.  The Shadow of Death re-creates the fear that consumed the idyllic region when young women began to disappear with horrifying regularity. Neighbors used to leaving their doors unlocked suddenly wondered who among them was a sadistic serial killer. Friends and family of the victims were left to endure the bottomless pain of imagining their loved ones’ terrifying last moments. Desperate to stop the slayings, local police and FBI investigators used exotic new techniques to try to unmask the murderer. In some of the book’s most harrowing sections, Ginsburg documents the extraordinary efforts of psychologist John Philpin as he risks his own emotional stability to get inside the mind of a madman.   Law enforcement officials identified several suspects and came tantalizingly close to putting all the pieces of the puzzle together, but it was only after a pregnant woman survived a brutal attack that the killings appeared to stop. The question remains: Could they start again? The Shadow of Death is a “riveting” profile of one of America’s greatest unsolved mysteries (Kirkus Reviews).

    911:5 MInutes to Midnight?

    I am a man standing on a speeding train. You are standing on the platform. If I reach out my hand to you, at least one of us is going to get hurt. This book, and my ‘911:five minutes to midnight’ are my attempt to ‘bring you up to speed’. Until you have read this book, your mind will be closed to the very important message many people are trying to share with you at this critical moment.
     
    This book explains what 911 really means. What happened. Who did what when. And why. It then places 911 in the context of the New World Order, Zionism, Central Banking, and the ‘shadow government’ that has been playing us all for fools for so long. This is probably your best chance at understanding what is going on. This is probably your last chance to change the course of events. Please make sure you read this as soon as you can, and get your friends to read it too. You could spend months searching for this information, and then years trying to ‘join the dots’. It has taken me decades to get to the stage where I can present the truth to anyone who is intellectually able, but more importantly, emotionally willing, to accept the truth. The whole truth may yet elude us, but I have presented enough of it to justify a compelling and urgent call to be put out to anyone who still believes in the idea of personal freedom, democracy, and justice. I have included compressed versions of the Old and New Testaments, ‘Mein Kampf’, and ‘The Protocols of The Elders of Zion’ so that you can place the current events in perspective. Once you understand how the U.S petro-dollar and Central Banking function, and how they tricked us all on 911, me included, you will be outraged at how the mass media have duped us all.
