I read the book Bloody Horowitz by Anthony Horowitz. This has 12 different stories in it that do not have happy endings. One of the stories in this book was about a guy named Henry who accused Darren Shan of stealing his story and rewording parts of it in his own words. Then Henry tries to murder Darren Shan by sending him a letter with poison on the envelope. Henry hopes Darren Shan will open the letter and lick the poison off the envelope before sending him a letter back. Darren Shan receives Henry’s letter in the mail. It is all over the news that Darren Shan was murdered by licking poison off an envelope that one of his fans sent to him. You have to read the story to find out what happens next.
This was my favorite story in this book because I thought it was weird how someone would try to murder another person by putting poison on an envelope. This was a scary, yet very interesting and fun book to read. I would recommend this book to anyone who wants to read a bunch of different scary stories without happy endings.

The Children of the Stones (7 part miniseries)
If you can get past the hokey 1970’s special effects this childrens’ drama has much to offer in terms of thrills and plot development. This was one of a few foreign children’s series that were shown on Nickelodeon back in its infancy in 1983 on a show called ‘The Third Eye’. All the shows dealt with children that had E.S.P. or had “visions”. This series deals with a father and son that are invited to do research on a small English town that has a circle strange stones surrounding it, much like Stonehenge. Upon meeting and investigating the townsfolk, they begin to realize that there is something not right with the town. With slowly building tension and a truly strange soundtrack, ‘Children of the Stones’ can be enjoyed by fans of Goosebumps and other childrens’ horror.

The supernatural power of a transformed mind : access to a life of miracles
If you are tired of reading and talking about a gospel of power, but not seeing it in action, this book is a must read. Miracles should be a normal part of Christianity. To return to the orginal mission, to do what Jesus did, we must radically change our thinking. We must renew our minds. Bill Johnson does a great job of showing us what happens when we allow God’s supernatural power to work through us, and also how we can bring this kingdom reality into our lives.
