“Carlomagno” is an imaginative “what-if” blend of historical fact and fiction. It tells the story of an American Indian youth that is sold into slavery in the West Indies, escapes bondage, becomes a pirate on the Spanish Main and fights for a chance to return to the American Colonies.
Every nation awaits the Mayan prediction for the world’s end. Odd happenings are being reported from across the globe; with creatures of myth and ancient deities returning to life. Leading the destructive forces is Loki, the Norse god of mischief, who would rule the world, or see it destroyed. The gods of long-forgotten civilizations walk the earth once more; Morrigan, Guan Gong, Amon Re, Humbaba and Thor among them. Signs point to an unseen Heavenly War being fought in another dimension, about to spill over into our dimension. There was also the Mayan calendar which ended on December 21, 2012. Two forces have been battling for millennia with the entire cosmos as their playing field, and humans are the unfortunate pawns in their “cosmic chess match…” Some experts believe, “Prophecies are being fulfilled…” In this new thriller by John Christian Hopkins, the novel begins with a reporter investigating a macabre murder at a secretive company that supposedly was one of the world’s foremost leaders in paranormal happenings; but what Napoleon Marquard thought might be murder and embezzlement becomes something that he had trouble believing: mythological gods, goddesses and magical creatures from storybooks were seemingly coming to life; and led by Loki, the Norse god of mischief, some of the superpowered beings were bent on conquering the world…. (Second edition, remastered Twilight of the Gods by same author)
“Rhyme or Reason: Narragansett Poetry” is an eclectic collection of serious and humorous poems by John Christian Hopkins (Narragansett). A deeply personal and touching collection, Hopkins has a heart the size of Texas. His work includes a poem about his relative Tarzan Brown, a famous marathon runner and some old family photos.
“I guess I’ve been a poet ever since I discovered that ‘cat’ rhymed with ‘bat’,” Hopkins said.
For Hopkins, “Rhyme or Reason” is a first foray into poetry. He generally focuses on historical fiction, he said. His other works include “Twilight of the Gods,” “The Pirate Prince, Carlomagno” and “Nacogdoches.”
