The Association
The year is 2024. Ben Lake, a phenomenally successful investor, receives a call from a Lord Godfrey who invites him to what he describes as a seminar.

Initially disinterested, Lake declines the offer but then becomes intrigued when Godfrey talks of immortality and freedom from disease. Out of curiosity, he eventually decides to attend.

What he hears during the seminar horrifies him and he wants nothing to do with Godfrey or what he calls ‘The Association’.

He leaves, and people start to die. Lake is then forced into a set of circumstances that he’s totally ill-equipped to handle.

50% of any proceeds from this book will be used to offer understanding, support and advice to the hundreds of thousands of UK Chronic Fatigue Syndrome sufferers via a dedicated support forum. Chronic Fatigue Syndrome is a widely misunderstood but totally debilitating disease. The Author is a sufferer.

Army of Tennessee, Louisiana Division Memorial
Army of Tennessee, Louisiana Division Memorial
Tumulus form crypts are crypts covered by earthen mounds. New Orleans versions of this ancient burial structure are usually surmounted by a figure, representing the sponsoring organization or society. The Benevolent Association of the Army of the Tennessee, Louisiana Division, laid the cornerstone of their monument on March 31, 1883. The mounds is elevated about thirty feet upon a lot sixty feet in diameter. At the top sits General Albert Sidney Johnston on horseback. The bronze figure and the marble orderly sergeant who stands at the base with the roll of the honored dead are from the designs of Alexander Doyle who was paid $12,000 for them. The model of the horse was selected from the same bloddline as the general's horse, Fire-Eater, and the statute represents the moment before Fire-Eater rode to his deth in the Battle of Shiloh. Achille Perelli created the bronze insignia above the entrance to the crypts of the monument and also sculptured the eight-foot nine-inch figure of General Stonewall Jackson that stands atop the thirty-eight foot granite column on the mounds of the Louisiana Division, Army of Northern Virginia. The officer on the top of this burial mound is Confederate General Albert Sidney Johnston, who was killed on the first day of the Battle of Shiloh. Johnston is not buried here, but in his native Texas. This tomb is one of the earliest of the larger monuments in the cemetery. It is located right at what used to be the main gate. Three of the vaults in the tumulus were ordered to be permanently sealed after the officers in them were buried. These vaults contain the remains of Gen. P.G.T. Beauregard, who ordered the first shot fired on Fort Sumpter. It is said that Beauregard was extremely upset with the Army of Tennessee Benevolent Society when they voted to commission the statue of Gen. Johnston for the top of the tumulus. In spite of this, he still chose this as his burial site, and was laid to rest there after his death on February 20, 1893. Additionally, Col. Charles Didier Dreux and Richard Taylor are also buried here. Dreux was the first Confederate officer killed in the war, and Taylor was the son of President Zachary Taylor.

Engineering Legends: Great American Civil Engineers: (32 Profiles of Inspiration and Achievement)
Behind every great American civil engineering accomplishment, there is a great American civil engineer. Throughout history civil engineers have made an enormous impact on the progress and development of this nation. While their engineering achievements are regularly recognized, the engineers themselves are rarely discussed. Engineering Legends provides a unique view into the history and progress of 32 great American civil engineers, from the 1700's to the present. It explores the personal lives and professional accomplishments of these outstanding engineers, providing an in-depth look at the people behind these achievements. The book also illustrates the diversity surrounding these engineers, such as their differing backgrounds, their reasons for becoming engineers, obstacles they faced, and their work in different disciplines of civil engineering. As Henry Petroski writes in the foreword, "Rich Weingardt has done the engineering profession a great service in writing and collecting these essays into a book that cannot help but inspire engineers, future engineers, and all who benefit (and will continue to benefit) from their work. Engineering Legends is a book that has something for everyone."
