The Mirage
11/9/2001: Christian fundamentalists hijack four jetliners. They fly two into the Tigris & Euphrates World Trade Towers in Baghdad, and a third into the Arab Defense Ministry in Riyadh. The fourth plane, believed to be bound for Mecca, is brought down by its passengers. The United Arab States declare a War on Terror. Arabian and Persian troops invade the eastern seaboard of the US and establish a Green Zone in Washington, DC. 2009: Mustafa, an Arab Homeland Security agent, interrogates a captured suicide bomber, who claims that the world they are living in is a mirage - in the real world, the US is the superpower, not the Arab states. A search of the bomber's apartment turns up a copy of the New York Times dated September 12, 2011, that appears to support his claim. Other captured terrorists have been telling the same story. The president wants answers, but Mustafa discovers he's not the only interested party - gangster Saddam Hussein is conducting his own investigation. And the head of the Senate Intelligence Committee - war hero Osama bin Laden - will stop at nothing to hide the truth.

Schweizer, Mark  
Liturgical Mystery #10: The Christmas Cantata
Signed by the author on the title page. Usually in St. Germaine, North Carolina, the three weeks before Christmas are marked by an increase in good feelings. Not this year. The whole town is crabby. Noylene's new personal Christian astrologer blames it on the convergence of Pluto and the third moon of Jupiter. Pete Moss thinks it might have something to do with increasing levels of positive ion bombardment from outer space. (Also included in Pete's theory are sunspots, a hole in the ozone layer, the federal deficit, CNN election coverage, armadillo migration, and the cancellation of two long-running soap operas.) When a long-lost cantata is found in the basement of the courthouse, a Christmas Eve performance is the order of the day. What happens next is anyone's guess.
