Something dark and horrible
stirs beneath Bear Gap Lake
in the North Georgia Mountains
A LONG TIME AGO, something dark and terrible happened at the remote mountain village of Bear Gap before it was flooded to make way for a new reservoir in the North Georgia Mountains.
And now, almost a century later, a terrifying force has been awakened beneath the tranquil waters, a force that threatens not only the serenity of this lonely wilderness paradise, but also the lives of those living along the pristine shores of Bear Gap Lake.
When Laura Drake and her precocious daughter arrive for a mother-daughter vacation at an isolated lake house, they quickly discover they are not alone. At night when it storms, they are awakened by the ghostly clanging of church bells that seem to be coming from the bottom of the lake. Even more unsettling are the spectral figures of two young brothers, Lucas and Mason, who roam the beach on stormy nights, their sad, hollow eyes masking sinister intent.
Part ghost story, part love story, The People in the Lake is a horror/thriller set against the scenic backdrop of the Southern Blue Ridge, an ancient, untrammeled land of mystery, wonder and long forgotten truths where some things are not always as they seem.
Throw in a psychopathic American Psycho-style slasher from Atlanta into the mix, along with a few odd neighbors--a handsome, mysterious doctor, an eccentric retired history professor and a young reclusive artist--and the stage is set for an old-fashioned, page-turning thriller that explores spectral revenge against greed and murder as well as the consqeuences of messing around with the dead.

GONE WITHOUT A TRACE:
Natalee Holloway...Michael Rockefeller...Judge Crater...Amelia Earhart...Jimmy Hoffa, many more!
EACH YEAR, TENS of thousands of people go missing in the United States, while around the world, countless millions vanish into the unknown, never to be seen or heard from again.
In an age of GPS, smartphones and computerized record-keeping from the cradle to the grave, it is difficult to comprehend how living human beings can suddenly and unaccountably disappear, leaving no trail or clue to their whereabouts.
Of the estimated 800,000 Americans who are reported missing each year, most eventually return or are accounted for within a few days. A much smaller percentage, however, remain lost forever.
This book explores the unexplained and often mysterious fates of a number of people and places that vanished into the unknown. Most of the victims profiled in these pages share some level of fame or notoriety--gangsters, movie stars, royal princes and princesses, socialites, airplane pilots and even a prime minister. Some of the usual notables are included--Jimmy Hoffa, Anastasia Romanov, Lionel Crabb, Theodosia Burr, Michael Rockefeller and Judge Crater.
Lesser known but no less sensational or tragic figures are also examined, including Dorothy Arnold, the young socialite who wanted to be a famous author, Orion Williamson, the Alabama farmer who faded into nothing but a wispy shadow in full view of his wife and neighbors, and Tiffany sessions, the attractive university coed who was snatched while on a power-walk near her campus.
Since ancient times, countless individuals, groups, towns and even entire civilizations have faded from the historical record. Some have vanished in the air, at sea, on remote mountaintops, in far-off jungles.
This book demonstrates that truth is often stranger than fiction, whether dealing with UFO abductions, playboy prime ministers, evil kings, corrupt juges, glamorous movie stars, cannibal headhunters or lost, vine-shrouded cities slumbering deep in steamy jungles.

"Again, E. Randall Floyd brings to life the legends and stories of the Deep South. The Lost Maidens of the Okefenokee is a great read for anyone with a love for the mysterious...brings to life stories told around the campfires and hearth."
- -William Bowers
Long ago, an Amazon-like tribe of beautiful "warrior women" lived on an enchanted isle far out in the middle of this vast, primeval wilderness. Protected by a cloud of swirling mists, a deep moat and giant, man-eating alligators, these "Lost Maidens" became the stuff of legend as generations of conquistadors and adventurers ventured deep into one of the world's most mysterious realms in search of gold and glory...

History in Stone
A recently discovered rock carving near Sulaimani in northern Iraq is believed to depict the great Akkadian king, Narim-Sin, who reigned 4,000 years ago in what is now modern Iraq. Grandson of Sargon of Akkad, Narim-Sin was the first Mesopotamian king known to have claimed divinity for himself, taking the title "God of Akkad", and one of the first (following the earlier Lugal-Anne-Mundu) to claim the title "King of the Four Quarters, King of the Universe".
Look closely, and you can see the remarkable carving of Narim-Sin looming high to the left of the author's head. The carving bears a striking resemblance to the famous stele of Narim Sin celebrating his victory over a mysterious group of people known as the Lullubi.
