AROUND DARK FIRES - Book Three of THE LONG REFLECTION
A simple, silent shadow seized a part of me and flew it through an invisible landscape, through a dark fire, within the otherworld.’

The Edwardian era of romantic Gypsy caravans and the twenty-first century come together in this third book in the series. Jukal is afraid of ghosts, yet they surround him constantly. Ancestors remind him that his descendants are relying on him for knowledge, traditions, and the otherworld. How will the lonely Tikni Chirikli cope when she falls in love with one of those ancestors? Will she and Jukal manage the dark otherworld fire which the evil spirit Melahlo created within the line? Iuzio the immortal and the ancestors are now treading dangerous territory. With a break in the ancestral line, ancient knowledge waning, and the modern world giving the Gypsy family a most difficult task, will the ancient line and the Long Reflection survive?

THROUGH FOREST MIST - Book Two of THE LONG REFLECTION

In this second book in the series, the tribe’s ancient guide, Iuzio the Immortal, is severely challenged when the powerful Locollico spirit, Melahlo, threatens to infiltrate the line of Gypsies whose reflections are cast in the River of Life. The young Lileskai, in his desperation to be immortal, becomes hopelessly obsessed with forest mist and its haunting spirits, and finally loses his reflection. Seven generations later Lileskai’s descendent, No Name, cannot even bring himself to look at his reflection. Introspective in his later years, No Name must revisit a tragic memory in a bid to break the vicious spell that binds him with Lileskai and the ghostly Lenore. As those in the line begin crisscrossing boundaries of time, unavoidably accessing each other’s realities, can Lileskai, No Name and Iuzio, separated by centuries but bound by fate, stop Melahlo from finally breaking into their River of Life?

COMING HOME TO THE TREES: Travelling with the Gypsy Spirit of the Past

This book is the follow-up to Patrick Jasper Lee's first non-fiction book We Borrow the Earth (Thorsons 2000/Ravine Press 2013). It provides another unique glimpse into Romani Gypsy life hidden within the woodlands of the past, uncovering an enchanting world of folklore, myth, spirits, the otherworld, and the natural landscape created by trees. In Coming Home to the Trees, Lee reveals how an earlier Gypsy relationship with trees and the otherworld encouraged social, spiritual, emotional and physical wellbeing, and stability. Do the trees themselves retain earlier memories of nomadic Gypsy people and their spirits? Who are the enigmatic Muchee Mulee who lived in the misty tree-tops? The reader is introduced to Mocheriben, the spirit of values and principles, Bokt, the spirit of luck and destiny, and Parava, the spirit of change and transformation, along with many others. How much do the spirits play a part in our everyday lives, especially when it comes to the spirits who inhabit our sitting rooms, our bathrooms and our kitchens? Why should luck and destiny be so important to us now? Could it be that the trees themselves are the keepers of some of the oldest secrets on Earth?

THE DARKNESS IS NOT NOW: A Prehistoric Message from Mars - C. G. Browne.

"The Darkness Is Not Now" is an experience. If you enjoy digging deep, you'll find this book provides original answers. It raises questions we sometimes dare not ask due our human love of stereotypical thinking. This is a story realistically told, via the Red Lady of Paviland (really a young man). It gives a voice to a people who played a major role 33,000 years ago, the artistic rock people of our Martian past. The book also introduces the "horse people", often the subjects of many of the cave paintings, and questions the mysterious artistic skills and the role Mars played long ago. Was Mars always a dead planet of dust? Perhaps it once held life and was once a dimension we no longer see or understand. "The Darkness is Not Now" illustrates, in a subtle, reflective, poetical and earthy, way how our own world is steadily dissolving by our own hands because modern humans chose to push the beautiful Cro-Magnon people, or Pavilandians, into obscurity. Few authors dare to open a door to something original, with no restrictions on insight, imaginative solutions, and courage. If you love the arts, love nature, want to be inspired, and if you seek a never-before-told account of prehistory, this book is for you.

FORBIDDEN DIMENSIONS: Primitivism, Prehistory & the Posthuman Era by C.G. Browne

How did humans perceive life, the world, and one another a million years ago? How was it different from the way we perceive life today? What does 'a million years' mean in a time when there is no time? Two dimensions—primitive and civilized—collided in prehistory causing chaos to the primitive world we call Earth. In Forbidden Dimensions, psychologist C. G. Browne argues that ancient humans were innately constructed not to change, and that the concept of development is at the heart of some devastating psychological and social problems we are facing today as a species. Has the ability to develop really evolved or has it been woven in? Will progress ever stop? Will humankind ever arrive at its destination or are we stuck in a trap, destined to time travel, modify, and adapt for eternity? Forbidden Dimensions is a challenging and philosophical exploration of past, present, and future Mind.
