A moment of serenity and grace. A holy night. But who were the Three Wise Men? The Bible has almost nothing to say about them. How do we know they were three kings from the East? What if they were petty, murderous thieves on the run, escaping through Judea under cover of night? Leave it to Seth Grahame-Smith to take a little mystery, bend a little history and weave an epic tale. In this telling, the three wise men are led by the dark, murderous Balthazar -- the infamous Antioch Ghost.… Read more

Therefore a compilation of the many experimental designs of the coinage of our country should be most interesting and instructive from a historical standpoint. Realizing that a list of pattern, trial, and experimental pieces has long been needed, the compilers of this work have endeavored to prepare a fairly comprehensive work on the subject.''
