Lyrical Gemstones is a collection of Charles Bailey's most poignant work since 2006. His words convey his unique and often risque views on love, life, sex, and himself. The collection is comprised of nine of his ten series of poetic masterpieces. These words are a lifetime labor of love for him, also well received by his friends, admirers and loved ones. These words are not for the faint of heart; read them at the risk of loving them.

On a sweltering summer day in 1992, the body of Patricia Fonti was found in the Brooklyn neighborhood of Highland Park.
She had been stabbed more than 100 times.
The Zodiac Killer had struck again.
Renowned psychic medium Jackie Barrett is no stranger to visits from the dead. But when the spirit of Patricia Fonti comes to her twenty years after her death, Jackie finds herself caught in an unexpected battle for the restless, schizophrenic soul of a murder victim. Here is Jackie's first-person account of her connection with Patricia Fonti and her murderer, New York Zodiac Killer Heriberto ?Eddie" Seda, whose early 1990s killing spree paralyzed the city with fear.
In exclusive letters, drawings and recorded telephone conversations from prison, Eddie divulges things to Jackie that have never been made public, including how he killed and why. Her astounding interviews with the man who calls himself ?The Soul Collector" give rare insight into the recesses of a very dark mind. And while Jackie struggles to help Patricia Fonti find peace, Eddie insists he and Jackie are two halves of a whole, that together they make up the astrological sign of the twins?the Gemini?
More than 4000 years old, the true meaning of this ancient, awe-inspiring creation and the secrets of its construction have been lost in the mists of time. Surrounded by mystery, Stonehenge never fails to impress.
Over the last five years James Davies has been photographing Stonehenge at all times of the day and night, and all through the seasons. With privileged access to the stone circle he has built up a unique portfolio. A Year at Stonehenge brings together the best of his work, while a short expert text summarises our current understanding. Published to coincide with the opening of a new environmentally sensitive visitor centre and the restoration of the surrounding ceremonial landscape, this is the most visually stunning book available on this most fascinating world heritage site.
