Thebes is in famine. The weak are starving. Soon even the strong may join them. A daughter of Clan Waterfowl is dead. The cause is unknown. Was it something that she ate? Mahu suspects poison, but he has never experienced a poison which leaves no caustic mark, no color change, no residual smell, no warning taste. With his lordly master elsewhere, Mahu begins to follow his clues, which takes him to the temple of Osiris, god of agriculture.Set in ancient Egypt, in the years just prior to the reign of King Thut, the story's hero uses a combination of intuition and rudimentary forensic evidence to solve these mysteries. All the while, he stimulates his own thought process or intimidates his suspects with the tool of a tarot deck.The fourth in a series, The Tarot Card Detective, continues a portrayal of police work in the late bronze age. While each of the Mahu stories can stand alone, they are best appreciated when read in order. If you haven't yet met our jovial, yet sharp-witted detective, we recommend starting at the beginning, with "Sleuth of the Nile", or the short story "The Viper's Den". If you have been with us all along, thanks for your support and we hope you enjoy this latest venture into ancient Egypt.

Have you ever wished you could see a fairy? Maybe you have, but did not realize it. Have you seen morning dew on the grass and flowers that glisten like diamonds? Well, then you have seen fairies. Have you ever felt as if there were something or someone in your closet or under your bed when you were a young child? Then you have felt the dark fairies that live in dark places and just want to be left alone. Again, you have felt fairies around you. Mother Nature is filled with many varieties of sprites, pixies, fairies, gnomes and trolls and they are abundant in our environment. They take care of the elements such as fire, earth, air, water and the ether as well as snow, rain, wind, hurricanes and light summer breezes. Our little fairy friends are also the diminutive helpers of Angels and assist them in whichever way they can to make human life here on Earth better in all possible ways.

Hundreds of new Tarot decks have been produced in the late twentieth century, many of them based on the structure and images of Arthur Waite and artist Pamela Smith's Rider-Waite deck (1910). The continuing popularity and influence of the Rider-Waite deck makes it a standard for identifying, categorizing and analyzing contemporary Tarot and other meditation decks. This work of art history analyzes such decks in relation to conventional art styles and movements, including Symbolism, Surrealism, the modernist "grid" and the low/high value hierarchy, and postmodern art movements and concepts such as the dissolution of the modernist value hierarchy, Pattern and Decoration art, and collage. It also examines them in relation to literary concepts, including the novel, utopias, and popular genres. The author's analysis is supported by numerous illustrations, including the Rider-Waite major arcana cards juxtaposed with examples of their counterparts from more recent decks.

Young Y. Cheung is in a pickle! In order to receive a $100,000 inheritance from his grand­father’s estate, he must get his name mentioned in 1000 U.S. newspapers, “in an honorable fashion” before midnight of the day before the estate is settled. On top of that, his family doesn’t consider his one-of-a-kind profession, business detective, “honorable”. How Y. Cheung uses his inscrutable wiles to gain happiness and the inheritance is a tale only Harry Stephen Keeler could spin. "It was definitely loopy and is the second of his novels I have read to deal sympathetically and sensibly with Asians in 1930s while everyone else was demonizing or eroticizing them in genre fiction of that era. This is one of Keeler's forays into the 'locked room' and impossible problem genre, but being Keller it involves an outrageous and nearly unfathomable solution." -- G. F.

Young women are being murdered, the only clue to the identity of their killer, a Tarot card left with their bodies. That is, according to Professor Rupert Roxeth, the recognised authority on the Tarot called in by the Gidding police to assist them in their enquiries into the murders.The clairvoyant, Edwina Charles, when approached privately by ex-Detective Chief Superintendent David Sayer, acting on behalf of friends of his, who have a vested interest in knowing the identity of the Tarot murderer, has other ideas. Her reading of the cards left by the Tarot murderer tells an entirely different story.Playing a lone hand, Mrs Charles pits her wits against the Tarot murderer, using both her knowledge of the Tarot and her undisputed natural psychic skills, before he claims yet another victim. It proves to be no easy task. She finds herself up against Professor Roxeth, who is far more interested in protecting his reputation than in finding the Tarot murderer. Added to the mix is Amery Walters, a prominent racehorse trainer with a guilty conscience, and young nursing students with petty jealousies.It becomes a game between the Tarot murderer and Mrs Charles, a deadly game that only one of them can win.
