Now, as society nears a tipping point, lives will intersect and intertwine across two days in a desolate city. THE JUNKIE QUATRAIN is four tales of survival, and four types of post-apocalypse story.

From the Desk of the How-To Junkie for the "Critical Thinking Junkie": Howdy friend, who wants "to develop critical thinking," In the old days where famous Greek philosophers - like Socrates, Plato, and Aristotle - would conglomerate in the public square Agora of Athens, people from all over would gather around to listen attentively to their enlightening thoughts.

Junkie Love by Joe Clifford Book Summary:
Joe Clifford didn’t start drinking beer until he was almost twenty years old. By the time he turned twenty-two, he was addicted to methamphetamine; and the heroin wasn’t far behind. Soon he’d lose his wife, his job, his home. Junkie Love follows the roughly ten years Clifford spent wandering the streets of San Francisco and beyond, first as a wannabe rock star, and then as another homeless junkie with his head lost in the stars. In between are the harrowing events and close calls, the shady characters and the enduring friendships, the redemption and restitution that led Fix Magazine to call Junkie Love “one of top four recovery memoirs” of all time. From the Forward by Jerry Stahl "The good news is Clifford’s is exactly the kind of voice our poor, strung-out country deserves in these toxic end-times. Like his hero Kerouac, this is a writer drawn to life’s more rough-edged and unsung corners. But, in the best Beat tradition, he writes about the lost and monstrous with a life-affirming, almost depraved sweetness. The miracle is, hardcore addicted, in love with a beautiful schizophrenic, Clifford returned with mind and talent intact. But that no trace of clichéd bitterness or streety one-downsmanship pollutes his tone."
Travel Junkie by Jack Harms Book Summary:
This is not a travel guide, nor is it a typical travel book. This is a story about a man who overcame personal tragedies to achieve his lifetime ambition to explore the world. You won't find stories of a man who climbed mountains or sailed the seas. Instead you'll hear about one man's journey who visited over 100 well-known foreign countries and cities, swam with the sharks in Bora-Bora, Tahiti and in Grand Cayman, explored the underwater world of the Australian Great Barrier Reef, walked the Great Wall of China; and went on photo safaris in the African wild game parks. When he began his traveling adventures, the last thing on his mind was writing a book. As he progressed through his trips, he would entertain his relatives, friends and clients with the stories and photos of his more important memories. Invariably, they would say "you ought to write a book!" And so he did, and here it is. The book should assist the beginning traveler in deciding where to go, how to go, and how long to stay, and last but not least, how to stay safe in a sometimes dangerous world. Traveling can be, and often is, very rewarding. But it can also be frustrating, expensive, and dangerous. When traveling to a foreign country it is best to expect the unexpected, as your experience will be unlike anything you've experienced before. The Travel Junkie also reveals the true character of Jack Harms and his personal life. Including his hitchhiking days, his attraction to famous entertainers' live performances, his traumatic experiences - being on his own at the age of fourteen in Jackson Hole, Wyoming and the deaths of his mother, and only two brothers at very young ages.

Sarah's world dissolves into a haze of credit card debt, loneliness, and a raging addiction to psychics that threatens to destroy her finances, her relationships, and her sanity. She knows she needs help. But getting it will mean confronting the fact that life is not to be controlled or predicted, and though dealing with reality isn't always easy, at least it doesn't cost $4.99 a minute.

REFLECTIONS OF A ''B''- MOVIE JUNKIE by Jim Driscoll Book Summary:
"Reflections Of A 'B' Movie Junkie" is a tribute to the old "B" Movies of the Saturday Matinees of yesteryear. Actually, it is more of a homage to them, or at least (6) genres of those film types, that were so prevalent back in primarily the '40's and '50's. Their research and discussion, however, in some instances, dates all the way back to the beginning of the "talkies" of motion picture content, and can extend in the other direction, into the early '70s. These (6) genres include the popular "B"-Western, The Comedy Teams, The Jungle Adventures, Sci-Fi & Fantasy, Horror and the Serial, or Chapter Plays, so popular with the week-end Matinee crowds back then. These film-types filled up our Saturday afternoons (and evenings) with exciting adventure, curious wonder, spine-tingling horror, and non-stop action. Often filmed on a shoe-string budget, and in a limited time-frame, many of these "classics" came to be looked upon by many fans as being so truly bad, that they were good, (in a bad sort of way) ! They are thus categorized, reviewed and discussed, for the most part, in a lovingly personal style, especially when compared to the film types we are subjected to in today's market. They had their place in film history, and that time is long since gone. But, for some of us, they have never been equaled, which, for others, may indeed be a good thing.

Junkie Meets Jesus by Colin Garnett Book Summary:
‘Colin Garnett grew up in Stockport, South Manchester, in a tough working-class culture. A teenage involvement with alcohol, amphetamines and violence led to an adult heroin addiction. For many years he was lost in a crime-and-drugs lifestyle and did time in twenty-seven different English prison and two military prisons. But on 17th June 1993, in a prison chapel, he turned to God with a heavy heart and received Jesus Christ as his personal Lord and Saviour. From that moment, God started to transform Colin’s life. Colin has become a highly effective evangelist with a very powerful ministry to those in prisons and their families, to those trapped in addictions and their families, and to the hearts and minds of developing youth. Colin and his wife Deanna now run The Bethesda Recovery Homes of South Africa where they are seeing a steady stream of individuals and families receiving reconciliation and freedom’. ENDORSEMENTS ‘Meeting Colin Garnett and hearing his story was a spiritual tonic – if not a shake-up! May God continue to keep him and use him in this very needy and difficult work for which he is almost uniquely gifted and qualified’ – Dick Lucas, Rector Emeritus, St Helen’s Church, Bishopsgate, London ‘Jesus Christ is the hope of the world. It has been a privilege to see that hope so powerfully expressed through the life and ministry of Colin Garnett, one of our graduates. Read and Rejoice’. Dr Steve Brady, Principle, Moorlands College ‘As you read this story you might forgiven for doubting its veracity because it seems so fantastic in an age of cynicism, but I urge you to read on to the end and conclude that only God can change a life and that He has done well with Colin’. Rev. Vic Jackopson M.B.E. - Founder and President of Hope Now International. ‘There are some very special people that God takes from the most unlikely places and transforms them to serve Him in an utterly amazing way. Colin is one of those people and this book is a testimony to the amazing God who continues to turn our rags to His riches. Enjoy this challenging read that has a profound message to give in an age of cynicism and despair’. Colin Bennett, Deputy Principle, Moorlands College
