Conscious Planet: Our
New Monthly Media Guide
Welcome back! While the hot summer days are upon us, and
many in the country have just celebrated a Fourth of July holiday weekend,
headlines seem to be occupied by old and familiar names: in the book business,
Harry and Hillary; in the movie industry, ultra-light entertainment from
old-fashioned names such as Charlie?s Angels and the Hulk. In the world of
international politics some old names continue to haunt us: Osama bin Laden,
although not specifically mentioned, is still causing a holiday weekend to turn
into a code yellow weekend, while Saddam Hussein appears to be alive and very
much kicking. In conquered Iraq, with allied soldiers dying almost daily, there
are still no signs of weapons of mass destruction. (Try this: Go to
Google. Without quotations,

the I'm feeling lucky button and read the entire error message carefully.)
So what is new this summer? Well, Paraview Pocket Books? first
visionary fiction book,
Angel Caf?/a>, by
first-time novelist Jill Morrow, has been released. It?s a mixture of paranormal
romance and The Twilight Zone: perfect reading for the beach or on the
way to your holiday destination.
Another Paraview release is an updated edition of the classic
Native Heart by
Gabriel Horn, a Native American activist, father, and seeker who describes his
attempt to live a modern man's life that's true to the indigenous spirit of our
land. It?s a must read for anyone concerned about our ?new world? culture and
Paraview also continues to lead in using technology to improve information about
books and authors. We?ve just implemented the
Digital Object Identifier (or
"DOI"). This is a kind of super URL which links users directly to where
they can buy the book and to additional information about the book or author.
Please try it out for yourself, by pointing to the title: .
