Writing my novel is a kind of life experience. I was born in the twenty's in the days of the horse and cart that now seems to be back with the ark.A popular saying for old age pensioners of every generation has been, ' Give Me The Good Old Days. But this time it could it be true? My generation is the fastest change in our history. Two world wars and a technolodgy growing so fast its left us stunned. Has it done any damage to human nature. Education versus instinctiveness? Can we cope or is to much to take in, and what are the consequences? History has always proven there is a limit and should we beware? There's most probably millions of people asking the same question.

Early on a September morning in 1998, David “Gypsy” Chain and eight fellow Earth First! activists went into the redwood forests of Scotia, California. Their loosely organized plan to protest the destruction caused by the logging industry almost immediately turned farcically tragic. A. E. Ammons, a logger for Pacific Lumber, confronted the group, threatening them in an obscenity-ridden diatribe: if they didn't leave "I'll make sure I got a tree comin' this way!" The group retreated, moving deeper into the wilderness. A short time later, just as they were attempting to confront the logger yet again, Gypsy was dead, crushed to death by a tree Ammons felled. A GOOD FOREST FOR DYING traces the long history of bitter clashes between environmental concerns and economic interests in the American West and shows why these tensions came to a head in northern California in the 1990s. It tells the story of how Pacific Lumber, once an environmentally friendly, family-owned business, became part of a conglomerate whose business practices made it a ripe target for environmental activists. But A GOOD FOREST FOR DYING is also the story of Gypsy Chain, a troubled young man raised in a loving family. A social misfit in his small Texas hometown, he died in a faraway forest before he had a chance to come to terms with himself and his family. His mother never lost faith in her sometimes wayward, idealistic son. After his death, and helped by a team of shrewd, leftist lawyers, she mounted a fight for justice in the name of her son and the cause of saving the redwoods. A balanced, highly readable examination of complex, emotionally charged issues, A GOOD FOREST FOR DYING will appeal to a wide audience. Its insights into the inner workings of the radical environmental movement and its dissection of corporate greed and misdeeds are reminiscent of such provocative exposés as A Civil Action and Erin Brockovich. The story of Gypsy’s strange odyssey and the disturbing circumstances of his death–seen primarily through the eyes of his mother–is as powerful and as moving as Jon Krakauer’s classic Into the Wild. From the Hardcover edition.

Wie sehr das Leben leuchtet, auch in seinen dunkelsten Momenten. "Sterben ist nicht das Ende der Welt", hat ihre Mutter einmal gesagt. Doch erst jetzt beginnt Nina Riggs den Satz zu verstehen: Mit 38 Jahren hat sie unheilbar Krebs, die Ärzte geben ihr noch 18 bis 36 Monate. Wie lebt man ein Leben, dessen Ende feststeht, das aber dennoch gelebt werden will? Wie macht man Pläne für den Urlaub, wie spricht man mit den Kindern, und wie ist man weiterhin eine liebende Partnerin? Nina Riggs hat ein Buch geschrieben über ihre letzten Monate, das keine Krankengeschichte ist und keine heldenhafte Kampfansage an den Krebs. Es ist ein Buch über den Zweifel und die Angst, aber auch über die unendliche Schönheit des Augenblicks und den beharrlichen Blick nach vorn. Es ist ein Buch darüber, wie sehr das Leben leuchtet, auch in seinen dunkelsten Momenten.

Der tibetische Meditationsmeister Sogyal Rinpoche führt uns an eine Lebenspraxis heran, durch die der Tod seinen Schrecken verliert und der Alltag an Freude gewinnt. Seine zeitgemäße Auslegung der buddhistischen Lehren des berühmten »Tibetischen Totenbuchs« hat weltweit einen maßgeblichen Rang erlangt. Sie ist zu einer unentbehrlichen Hilfe in der Krankenbetreuung und Sterbebegleitung geworden. Doch jeder Mensch kann durch dieses Buch nicht nur »die Kunst zu sterben«, sondern auch die »zu leben« lernen. Beide sind nach tibetischer Auffassung nur die zwei Seiten einer Medaille.

It's a typical cold November night and Detective Sergeant Dennis Milne, a very atypical policeman, waits in the Traveller's Rest Hotel parking lot for the arrival of three men. Cynical and jaded, Milne earns money on the side by doing what he does best: punishing the bad guys. But this time he's been duped. Instead of blowing away drug dealers, he kills three innocent people, their deaths starting an investigation that sees him and his conscience heading for trouble. Less than twelve hours later, Milne is out on the streets again. Eighteen-year-old Miriam Fox has been found dead by Regent's Canal---her throat slashed. Desperate to find Miriam's killer, Milne uncovers a web of depravity far more shocking than he could ever have imagined. Can he evade arrest for his own crimes and solve a case so sickening that it may provide the key to his personal redemption? The clock is ticking and everyone's watching their backs as a war of morality is fought in the mind of one renegade policeman in Business of Dying---the gripping first novel by talented young crime writer Simon Kernick.
