  • BIG THANKS to author Darrell Grizzle for his kind words and 5-STAR GoodReads review of the SAMARITAN audiobook written by Bobby Nash and narrated by Dan St. Andre. Read it at www.goodreads.com/review/show/3178251708

    "Science fiction turns into horror when a rescue mission in space turns up a monstrous terror in a very unexpected form. Another great novella from a master of pulp fiction, Bobby Nash. The Audible version is read by Dan St Andre, whose Southern accent somehow works perfectly for this adventure in outer space."

  • BIG THANKS to Steve T. Fowler for his kind words and 5-STAR review of SNOW STORM on Audible.com.

    " Great story, set locally... So I just finished the audio version of Snow Storm by my friend Bobby Nash. A wonderful story and lots of enjoyable moments make this a great read. I particularly enjoy that it is set in Georgia, particularly around the metro area of Atlanta. Take a listen and I am sure you will enjoy it. Bobby is a great guy that deserves support, definitely a fan of his, but proud to also call him a friend."

  • India with Backpack and a Prayer by Jennifer Brookins - Five Star Review
    "A deeply affecting travelog of a spiritual life
    There are many excellent travel narratives that describe the quest for meaning in India and the Far East; Elizabeth Gilbert’s "Eat, Pray, Love: One Woman’s Search for Everything Across Italy, India, and Indonesia," and William Dalrymple’s "Nine Lives: In Search of the Sacred in Modern India," are two that come to mind. We can add "India with a Backpack and a Prayer" to the list, though with an important distinction: this book is a multimedia presentation, text interleaved with photographs and original poetry, a combination that feels intimate, interior, as if the author is sitting across a table in a café quietly sharing her experiences rather than crafting prose. The meaning that emerges is that of memoir, i.e., the many ups and downs she has gone through to find the happiness that permeates the narrative, along with the mysterious and beautiful spirituality of four extraordinary people. She organizes the book in four one week chapters, taking us through the sights, sounds, and people of India and the Tarn Taran compound (or Dera) in the northern Indian state of the Punjab. Interspersed throughout are memories, descriptions, and pictures of her life; of Baba Kehar Singh Ji, the Patron of the Tarn Taran Dera; of Maharaja Charan Singh Ji, her spiritual Master and past Patron of the Beas Dera, also in the Punjab; of Mary, an extraordinary American mystic who played a central role in her life; and her husband Doug, a fellow traveler and mystic in his own right. She periodically includes original poems which give the narrative a sense of authenticity and lyricism, as if for a moment she needs to sing to communicate. She says “writing helps me discover parts of my life buried since early childhood,” and one gets the sense the book was motivated “from within,” the experiences seem so natural.

    I loved this book, the intimacy, the sense of the spiritual world close by, the interiority of the poetry, and most of all, the mystery of her four adept friends. Highly recommended."
