When he died he feared he had been forgotten... …He was dead wrong! Bela Lugosi is considered one of the greatest actors of the twentieth-century... but you'd never know it based upon the way he was treated by the Hollywood executives he worked for. Shut out, ignored, and hideously underpaid, he could have easily given up, walked away from show business, and no one would have blamed him for doing so.
But he didn't. Now a body of his work exists that is celebrated decades after his death... because he worked hard and never gave up. Bela Lugosi persevered in the face of tremendous adversity. Can Bela's story inspire you to keep going in your quest to make the world a better place? In Reign of the Vampire: A Tribute to the Perseverance of Bela Lugosi, Leo Wiltshire (M.
A. in Organizational Leadership) examines the struggles and triumphs of Lugosi's life in order to flesh out one of the most inspirational tales of determination ever told.

War transmuted to its highest magnitude, ripping through the very fabric of time. Features stories by Poul Anderson, Anne McCaffrey, Harry Harrison, Keith Laumer, John D MacDonald, Bob Shaw, H Beam Piper, and Randall Garrett.
A surprise inheritance.
A family of strangers. And a man she can’t avoid . . . Cassidy Calhoun can’t believe she’s the secret daughter of an oil billionaire. This small-town Texas girl with student loans by the barrel has never gotten a thing she didn’t earn for herself. The terms of her late father’s will say Cassidy—and her newfound spoiled half-siblings—must work a year at the family’s floundering business before they inherit a dime.
Too bad the only thing Cass knows about oil is that it makes the junker she drives go. Mason MacKenzie, the evaluator for their test, will help her get up to speed. Or will he? Mason is a boot-wearing, truck-driving Houston hottie who runs Calhoun Petroleum’s biggest rival. The sparks between him and Cassidy could combust any minute. But the closer they get, the more strange near-accidents Cassidy seems to be having. And Mason has plenty of reasons to play up their attraction for his own benefit. If she can trust him, the two of them working together might save a crumbling dynasty. But if she can’t, Cass might just lose both her fortune and her heart . . .
