The Mystery of Garabandal: Fantasy or Fraud? Ghost or God? by LR Walker

Fifty years ago, four young girls in a small Spanish village began falling into rigid trances for hours, marching backward up hills, and levitating, seemingly, inches above the ground. Eyes fixed on a mysterious point in the air, they were mesmerized by something which was invisible to everyone else.
Specifically, the girls claimed to be communing with the Virgin Mary. What they said she told them sent shock waves throughout the Catholic world, and beyond—shock waves that are still reverberating today. The messages the four girls claimed to receive revealed a picture of a church in crisis and a world that faced an earth-shattering future that would unfold in their lifetime.
The girls’ pronouncements about coming trouble in the church and world were met with fierce skepticism from the first. Some charged the girls with being possessed by demons (based on the girls’ strange physical poses and apparent levitation), and others claimed the girls were putting on an act (revealing their true colors when they chose ordinary married lives instead of the convent). There was also a third body of critics: those who believed that a group of girls on the cusp of adolescence in a remote and insular society conjured up a psychodrama which, fueled by the spotlight and mounting frenzy, gained a frightening life of its own.
Of course there is another possibility–that the apparitions in Garabandal, Spain actually did occur, and that the mother of Jesus appeared with an apocalyptic warning for both the church and the modern world.
The prophecies of Garabandal foretell a World-Wide Warning and a Global Miracle, whose purpose is to convince a world reeling from one catastrophe to the next that God exists. But the Warning and Miracle, dramatic as they sound, are not even the most unsettling of the messages. One night, the young girls dissolved into screams. During this so-called “Night of the Screams,” the girls say they were shown a tragic chastisement that would befall the entire world if the Warning and Miracle failed to trigger global change.
As disquieting as those messages were, the Virgin Mary’s most shocking message at Garabandal was for the hierarchy of the Roman Catholic Church, which was meeting at that time for Vatican II. Why were the messages of Garabandal so effectively suppressed? Did it have to do with the fact that the Virgin Mary presciently warned of coming scandal and turmoil in the Roman Catholic Church itself?
Did a portal open between worlds on a Spanish mountaintop in that summer of 1961? And if so, who opened the door–an angel of God or an angel of darkness? Was it the young girls’ flight of fancy one summer night that spun wildly out of control? Or was it a visitation from the Mother of Jesus filled with urgent concern for a church and a world that she deeply loves?
Now that the “girls” at the center of this drama are 60-year-old women, should their claims be discredited or re-examined? Are the apparitions bogus or fast-approaching their fulfillment? If the events are false, Garabandal is a fascinating and perhaps tragic human interest story with several explanations. If the events and warnings are true–then what do we do?
By the end of this book, readers can judge whether the appearances of the Virgin Mary to four young seers on a mountaintop in Spain were historical fact, a devilish fraud, or the creative confusion of four girls who would spend the rest of their lives trying to escape a human tragicomedy that they themselves had produced.

Saga of Sages by Ben Grigg

When seventeen year old Bastion finds out that he was born into a race of magical beings called sages, his life gets turned upside down by the fact that he must carry out a long-ago foreseen prophecy and bring an end to the rule of the foul King Kale, a warlord that massacred his entire race with the exception of ten small children fifteen years prior; Now Bastion must locate the other sage children, bring them together and convince them of their destiny and raise an army to bring peace to the land of Sola once more. With the help of a few magical creatures and items of lore by his side, Bastion will have to learn how to master his new ability and learn the history of his people. But will that be enough to right all the wrongs that have been committed in the land of Sola? Bastion soon learns of an even deadlier foe and more dangerous than ever creatures that will stand in his way in order for the prophecy to be fulfilled. With a solid group of ten sage children, each with their own unique “gift” and a group of not so normal mentors, Bastion will have to become the leader he was always destined to be and bring peace to the land of Sola again. The sage children will encounter magic beyond their wildest dreams, but also evil in its purest form. With the story taking place in the last era of magic, the companions will get the chance to meet rare mythical creatures and the last known members of a few surviving races that had long been thought extinct. The idea for “Saga of Sages” came to me in a dream one night. I continued having the recurring dream for some nights before I started writing down notes from what I remembered. Finally I decided to put my story down on paper. I’ve created a Facebook fan page to start building up an audience for my book. With 89,846 words, and 341 pages, I have completed the first book in my storyline. I appreciate you taking the time to have a look at my little story.
