THE END OF DAYS Armageddon and Prophecies of the Return

By Sitchin, Zecharia

Harper. Very Good. 2008. First Edition. Softcover. 9780061239212 . Very good - ex-library book with usual ex-lib type markings. Pages are clean and tight. Cover has light edgewear and a couple light creases on front. " Lots of people have been waiting for this book for a long time. Thirty years ago, Sitchin began writing the Earth Chronicle series, which posits the theory (supposedly recorded in Sumerian myth) that extraterrestrials, the Aununnaki, arrived on Earth eons ago and genetically engineered humans. Much of this book is taken up with backstory, but that doesn't mean newbies can just jump in. Although Sitchin helpfully highlights key points in boldface, there's a lot to keep straight here. Readers attempting to deal with a couple hundred thousand years of history, ancient astronauts becoming human gods, and Sitchin's attempt to tie it all into biblical prophecies may wish they were on another planet. Yet the series has legions of devoted fans who have been waiting to learn if the Aununnaki are coming back and, if so, when. Sitchin notes that it's hard to determine where to start the countdown to the end days, which may be tied to the Aununnaki's reappearance. It might come in 2012. Too soon? How about 2087? Taking the long view? Try 2240. There's more, a lot more, but we won't risk a spoiler. " (*lower shipping avail to some locations) [155-noto] ; The Earth Chronicles; 12mo 7" - 7½" tall; 320 pages .

EARTHFIRE A TALE OF TRANSFORMATION

By Robert Simmons

Heaven & Earth Publishing. Very Good+. 2000. First Edition. Softcover. 0962191027 . Ex-library book, but still in very nice condition - sturdy laminated cover and usual ex-lib type of markings. Only light wear overall. Light scuffing to covers, a little wear to laminate on spine ends. Interior clean and intact. ; 8vo; 314 pages; (Review) "When a New Age book and crystal shop coincidentally called the Missing Link becomes the vortex for a global spiritual awakening, one couple stands up for truth and saves humankind from its self-destructive tendencies. Although the plot sounds melodramatic, this visionary work harbors surprises. Like the evangelical novelist Frank Peretti, Simmons sees spiritual warfare everywhere, making for an exciting climactic conflict between good and evil. He does a fine job of explaining New Age thought, demonstrating how its various aspects: crystals, astrology, holotropic breathwork, aliens, I Ching, morphogenic fields, consciousness evolution, spirit guides and channeling among them fit together. He also provides a compelling story, with the bad guys (dressed in black, naturally) seeking money and power, and the good characters fighting valiantly for spiritual truth. They help the world evolve to its next stage of consciousness with the assistance of a few good aliens before the planet destroys itself. Despite its tendency toward wordy preachiness, Simmons's novel is fun to read, and doesn't take itself overly seriously. Readers interested in visionary fiction or New Age thought should enjoy this one. "(490) .

Proud Spirit begins with a chapter entitled "What happens when we die" and explains how the living affect the dead's happiness and well-being. Do we reincarnate? Only if we choose, she assures us. Do souls heal emotionally and spiritually after they die? Some may, some may not, but Altea consoles the reader in dozens of tenderly compassionate stories about the lives and deaths of real people. If you enjoyed The Eagle and the Rose, you'll love traveling around the globe with the undaunted medium in Proud Spirit, mending the broken hearts of people she meets--living and dead--and sharing the insights and processes that helped heal her own grievous wounds. .
