Title: 
Creatures of Light and Darkness

Thoth administered the different forces in the universe to keep things in balance. In time, he delegated this administration to his other godlike beings, "angels." At some point, Thoth awakened a dormant, malevolent force, the Thing That Cries In The Night. Thoth works to contain and destroy the creature, and in so doing, neglects his duties in maintaining the cosmos. In the resulting power vacuum, the angels fight amongst themselves for dominance.  Read more about Bailey Cove Sci-Fi: Creatures of Light and Darkness

Mark Twain
Title: 
A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur's Court

The story of Hank Morgan, the quintessential self-reliant New Englander who brings to King Arthur's Age of Chivalry the "great and beneficent" miracles of nineteenth-century engineering and American ingenuity. Through the collision of past and present, Twain exposes the insubstantiality of both utopias, destroying the myth of the romantic ideal as well as his own era's faith in scientific and social progress.
