Detective David Knight lives in Birchwood, California. It is a small town in The Fiasco Valley of Elviño County, which is world famous for the wine it produces. The town seems idyllic until young, healthy, male, harvest workers start turning up dead. While trying to solve the crimes, David meets a beautiful Mexican woman and falls in love. Follow David as he does detective work in order to catch the killer, or killers, and solve the rash of murders. Keep following David as he runs from the drug cartels that have started their own country and as he escapes monumentally mad Martians. David's political views and psychological problems are often put on display and the results are rather amusing. It's a hilarious and informative look at life in a dull town in a wealthy valley that is beset by murders . . . or is it? Since this book doesn't really fall into an established genre, the author came up with a new one. "VD: Vintage Death" is a political sarcastic comedy, and so falls into the new "Polisarcasmedy" genre. It could become a huge, popular genre if our politicians don’t improve.

Compelled to find the artifact’s origin, but struggling to finance the expedition, Holtz meets the enigmatic Aber Chandra who persuades him to make another prospecting run. After scraping together a rag-tag crew, they embark with high hopes.
But nothing is as it seems, and this run may be the end of Mitsumi and his crew.
When Abby Harris takes her faithful German shepherd out for a hike in Oregon’s beautiful mountains, getting abducted by aliens isn’t even a blip on her radar. Her trusty can of bear spray and pocket knife aren’t much help against the seven-foot monsters who swoop in out of nowhere to transport her to a ship in space.
Nicolai Nekbet is Crown Prince for the House of Nekbet on the planet Raiden. Unable to bear healthy children with females of their own species, Raiden warriors must hunt for a bride outside their own world. Nicolai has his heart set on a human even though their planet is protected by an ancient species called Laizahlian. When he sees the tall blonde-haired beauty out in the mountains with only a dog by her side, he knows he must have her.
With Abby safely on his ship, Nicolai injects her with his shaprata, his essence. His shaprata will change her on a cellular level, making them compatible for procreation, but he must still work hard to win her heart. If she rejects their union, it could easily mean his death.
A Second in Eternity is the true story about the author’s 1977 "near-death, out-of-body" experience, one that changed his life forever and still inspires and empowers him to this day.
Over the course of a day or so, Mr. Wimmer found himself becoming increasingly more psychic, minute-by-minute and second-by-second, able to see, feel, and know things, especially the immediate future, at will and with uncanny clarity. Within days, the intensity escalated to the point where he could no longer remember what 'normal' life was like.
After a week of experiencing such phenomena non-stop, while pacing down a crowded sidewalk, he was involved in a head-on collision with a speeding car.
He instantly left his body, felt amazing bliss, and witnessed the accident from above while expanding outward in all directions, like the surface of a balloon being instantly filled with air. Losing all sense of a personal self, he experienced ecstasy and beauty beyond description for what seemed like an eternity, then returned to his body, sprawled out on the chaotic street.
Still, he clearly realized what had happened. He was gone from my body for only seconds of Earth time, but for what seemed like an eternity in the highest of dimensions.
A Second in Eternity takes the reader on a vivid voyage through the mind and soul of one becoming overwhelmed by psychic phenomena. It describes the onset and escalation of the unfiltered perception that takes over when the wall that usually separates the conscious and subconscious minds begins to dissipate. This story reveals the steps I went through in unknowingly going from normal everyday consciousness to dimensions and worlds beyond imagination, to being at one with the Infinite, and to returning back to the world of space and time on Earth... as a different person.
A Second in Eternity contains the remaining paperwork and copies of the original police and court reports taken from microfilm, but with all the names blocked out for privacy concerns.
