    When Heaven Intervenes in the World of Men 
    (Author's Narration) 
    A prophetic voice for our age, A LeRoy crafts magical tales steeped in Biblical themes. The books in this collection combine otherworldly visions, leaps through time and space, and face-to-face encounters with the Almighty Himself. 
    But those encounters are made possible only by the loving interventions of Jesus, embodying his role as Friend and Intercessor before the throne of God. If you love the imaginings of C.S. Lewis, these stories will call to your heart. 
    1. The Christmas Tree 
    A tree is torn from his forest home and all that he loves. All seems lost, until a little boy takes up his cause. 
    In the words of one reviewer, this story "packs more punch than 12 volumes of theological discourse" as LeRoy combines the traditional Christmas story with themes of death and resurrection, otherworldly revelation, and courage led by divine calling. 
    2. The Prince's Oath 
    In this traditional Afghan tale, love will undergo many trials with God's help, even if it comes in the form of a cheeky little mouse! 
    3. Obama's Dream 
    About to hand over the keys of empire to Donald Trump, Obama's dreams are troubled. But Heaven intervenes with two great angels sent to redeem him. That's if they can overcome Satan's campaign of accusation! 
    “Profound tales of hope that demand you listen to their wisdom.“ 
    Andrea L. Stoeckel, Rockinrev Review 
    "I recommend the audio adaptations read by the very talented author and actor, Abdiel LeRoy." 
    William Mortensen Vaughan 
    "LeRoy has an active and practical understanding of the Christian Faith, and he is a gifted writer of parables that illustrate this." 
    Landon Schultz, pastor

    Three Sisters is a naturalistic play about the decay of the privileged class in Russia and the search for meaning in the modern world. It describes the lives and aspirations of the Prozorov family, the three sisters (Olga, Masha, and Irina) and their brother Andrei. They are a family dissatisfied and frustrated with their present existence. The sisters are refined and cultured young women who grew up in urban Moscow; however for the past eleven years they have been living in a small provincial town. Moscow is a major symbolic element: the sisters are always dreaming of it and constantly express their desire to return. They identify Moscow with their happiness, and thus to them it represents the perfect life. However as the play develops Moscow never materializes and they all see their dreams recede further and further. Meaning never presents itself and they are forced to seek it out for themselves.

    The Poetry of Algeron Charles...

    Algernon Charles Swinburne was born on April 5th, 1837, in London, into a wealthy Northumbrian family. He was educated at Eton and at Balliol College, Oxford, but did not complete a degree.   In 1860 Swinburne published two verse dramas but achieved his first literary success in 1865 with Atalanta in Calydon, written in the form of classical Greek tragedy. The following year Poems and Ballads brought him instant notoriety. He was now identified with indecent themes and the precept of art for art's sake.   Although he produced much after this success in general his popularity and critical reputation declined. The most important qualities of Swinburne's work are an intense lyricism, his intricately extended and evocative imagery, metrical virtuosity, rich use of assonance and alliteration, and bold, complex rhythms.   Swinburne's physical appearance was small, frail, and plagued by several other oddities of physique and temperament. Throughout the 1860s and 1870s he drank excessively and was prone to accidents that often left him bruised, bloody, or unconscious. Until his forties he suffered intermittent physical collapses that necessitated removal to his parents' home while he recovered. 
    Throughout his career Swinburne also published literary criticism of great worth. His deep knowledge of world literatures contributed to a critical style rich in quotation, allusion, and comparison. He is particularly noted for discerning studies of Elizabethan dramatists and of many English and French poets and novelists. As well he was a noted essayist and wrote two novels.  In 1879, Swinburne's friend and literary agent, Theodore Watts-Dunton, intervened during a time when Swinburne was dangerously ill. Watts-Dunton isolated Swinburne at a suburban home in Putney and gradually weaned him from alcohol, former companions and many other habits as well.   Much of his poetry in this period may be inferior but some individual poems are exceptional; By the North Sea, Evening on the Broads, A Nympholept, The Lake of Gaube, and Neap-Tide. Swinburne lived another thirty years with Watts-Dunton. He denied Swinburne's friends access to him, controlled the poet's money, and restricted his activities. It is often quoted that 'he saved the man but killed the poet'.   Swinburne died on April 10th, 1909 at the age of seventy-two.
