    Book I: The coming of a Hero

    “A hero will fall during a gladiator fight but a new one will rise from the ashes, as does the phoenix arises anew after death.” – Hidatus8 the Elder

    Long ago when the world was covered with sand and occupied by four great seas. A man was sitting in his cell far below, in the belly of Gaia; the mother of earth. The world was not as it once was all the greats such as Hercules and Peruses perished in the Great ...

  2. Way of the World

    What is peace it is not, for I know the name of the savior but I know the savior won’t give me his name. The deepest depth of the chill caresses the soul for you are not pure, you when there is not war but war there is always. Your life could end like that but peace is no death, no hatred, and no worries at all for peace was in time before you can know. Yes we live to die we love to hate, what is war what is life. Why hate a black man walking across the street, all he did was smile and say hi. ...

    You all are here now
    The time is changed
    No more need for war
    And the cage

    To end the rampage of the tyrant whore
    We live in Rome
    And I fear that this time will end near
    Just please come here now join together all 50 of us
    We will save the cause of origin

    Now just try, try, try and you will succeed
    Just try, try, try
    Please try and we can break free

  5. 6 days

    “Hey … hey Yaakov are you awake, please talk to me?”
    Rachmel then staggered to the once bright window that is now covered by a huge table.
    “Yaakov please wakeup brother please. Oh my g-d the explosion from the suicide bomber must have knocked you unconscious.”
    Rachmel then realized that they were stuck in the café with no way out. He then took out his cell phone to see if there was a signal but sadly there was none. Rachmel then went over to his brother and checked his ...
  6. A poem for a poet

    When I open my mouth I can not lie, I look to the river and might cry, like the great ancient man named Croesus once said, “when in peace sons bury there fathers and when in war fathers bury there sons”. It’s a mixed up world which we live on and you never know where it is gonna be. The war going on in the mid east is like one rich mans feast, but it’s soon to be done, no more guns. Now we should run and have some fun, but soon will be none for the big bad storm which we live in will explode into ...

  7. They just don't respect life like we do.

    by , November 2nd, 2011 at 03:09 AM (Rob Garbin's Blog)
    I have heard this many times throughout my life but, as I get older and hopefully wiser, I find myself questioning this statement. I guess this goes back to the reason I wrote “The Parable of Doubt”. I not only feel the need to doubt the actions of religious leaders but also of human leadership in general. More importantly, I feel the need to question the truth of people who use such statements to differentiate America from other parts of the world.

    First off, I am aware of many ...
  8. Thoughts I did not think much about at the time: Part II

    by , September 11th, 2011 at 08:01 PM (Rob Garbin's Blog)
    The second "aha" moment happened for me during our second and final invasion of Iraq. Leading up to the war and eventual ground invasion, we were told about the danger Saddam's regime posed to the saftey of America. We were told that Iraq had large hidden stockpiles of chemical weapons and was actively seeking out nuclear weapons, statements that might have been true at one time.

    However, by the second or third day of the invasion, it became clear to me that the compelling ...

  9. Thoughts I did not think much about at the time

    You know that feeling you get when you look back at certain ideas you had when you were younger but life made you shove them aside until much later. When you do remember, you say to yourself "Wow, I was actually right." Well I think I'll post about two of them.

    The first has to do with the Dow Jones Industrials. Back in 1982 through 1984 I was in senior high school and Ronald Reagan was our President. I was just learning about the roll of the NYSE in our economy from, ...

  10. Characters in Action: Cyrus Salem

    by , September 8th, 2009 at 11:01 AM (Desert Coyote Productions publishing blog)
    Continuing with my promotional series, I will keep on profiling characters from my novel The Advance Guard, on sale now. (Coming soon to Amazon!)

    This time around, it's Cyrus Salem.

    Cyrus is a wizard by trade and soldier by profession. His presence has been known to the U.S. military since at least the earliest parts of the 20th Century. He has seen action in several wars prior to this, though, not necessarily on the American side of things ... and even back further ...
