You cannot help but wonder what and why you are. The History of Eternity is a book that again and again answers these questions, as it celebrates the
tragic joy of wonder at the enigma of your existence. There will always be a
clamoring after elusive fact. There will always be a hankering for some
durable theory that will explain the fact. There will always be an inability
to match the one wholly with the other. Because something is always left
out, there will always persist a stubbornly invisible and intractable
remainder. And this remainder, this dark matter behind every thought, behind
every desire, behind every joy, behind every sorrow, will continue to
populate your universe with wonder. Read this book, if you will, and share
that wonder.

You are born into a conspiracy of significance, already entangled with your
equally lonely others. The history of eternity, the tension between nowhere
and now here, defines the struggle between the life you are living now and
whatever there may be of the life to come. The History of Eternity is a
series of broken elegies to those who have mattered, to their moments and
your moments, to their sanity and your sanity, to their madness and your
madness. The History of Eternity is one man’s meditation on the
reverberating shock of his encounter with Henry Adams, Aristotle, Augustine,
Bach, Balzac, Beckett, Bergson, Bloch, Boehme, Bonhoeffer, Cervantes,
Chekhov, Cicero, Claudel, Dante, Darwin, Derrida, Emily Dickinson,
Dostoevsky, Eckhart, Emerson, Ezekiel, Faulkner, Gide, Goethe, Heraclitus,
Herodotus, Hume, Isaiah, Henry James, Jeremiah, Samuel Johnson, Kafka,
Kierkegaard, D.H. Lawrence, Leopardi, Levinas, Joan of Arc, Joe Louis,
Lucretius, Machiavelli, Malraux, McTaggart, Milton, Montaigne, Newton,
Nietzsche, Parmenides, Pascal, Plotinus, Plutarch, Proust, Rabelais,
Rembrandt, Rosenzweig, Rousseau, Sartre, Schopenhauer, Schubert, Adam Smith,
Sophocles, Spinoza, Edith Stein, Wallace Stevens, Tocqueville, Van Gogh,
Virgil, Von Hofmannsthal, Wagner, Weil, Whitehead, Wittgenstein, Woolf,
Yeats, and many others.

Considered collectively, and as one integral whole, these philosophic
meditations in poetic form echo the meaning of eternity as reflected in the
troubled hearts, minds, and lives of 144 historic individuals, famous or
unknown. There is – in the history of philosophy and literature – nothing
akin to it in nature and scope.

 About the Author

Mr. James E. Winder was born on June 16, 1953, in Athens, Tennessee, and graduated summa cum laude from Vanderbilt University in 1975 with a B.A. in philosophy and literature. He earned an M.A. in philosophy from Purdue University in 1980.

James Winder spent the lion’s share of his career as a mid-level manager and intelligence analyst for the National Security Agency (NSA), where he retired in 2013 after 30 years of service. At NSA, Mr. Winder’s most noteworthy assignment was in 1991-1992, when he served as Assistant Director of the President’s Foreign Intelligence Advisory Board (PFIAB). During that
time, he co-authored a report for President George H.W. Bush on intelligence
lessons learned during the first Gulf War and provided extensive research
and documentation on a wide range of other matters of great interest to the
PFIAB board members. In a special commendation, then Acting PFIAB Chairman,
Admiral Bobby Ray Inman, cited Mr. Winder for his “expert advice to the
President of the United States” and for his “extremely incisive and timely
contributions on some very complex issues.”

During three decades at NSA, Mr. Winder produced three classified,
book-length studies, most notably including a comprehensive report on an
important subject, which won NSA’s annual Cryptologic Literature Award. He
also wrote a wide variety of other in-depth reports on Soviet intelligence,
terrorism, and technical threats to U.S. telecommunications.

Mr. Winder is the author of The History of Eternity, a series of
philosophic meditations in poetic form, which is, according to Mr. Winder,
the cryptic story of his life and the lives of many others. There is – in
the history of philosophy or literature – no other work that is akin to it
in nature and scope.

#BookBlitz “The Defense of Exeter Station” by Thom Bedford




At the turn of the twenty-ninth century, the Milky Way is on the verge of a galactic war. The Combined Systems Alliance continues to expand their territory—much to the displeasure of the Free Planetary Union who, until now, lacked the resources to halt the encroachment. In a bid to wrest control from the Alliance and retake their former colonies, Union agents throughout the Alliance Fleet organize a mass insurgency seizing countless assets. During the ensuing chaos, numerous ships are decimated, and millions of lives are lost.

Retired Alliance Commander Tanic Sandorn finds himself stranded on a border station after the Union launches an all-out assault. Fighting against anxieties from the incident that pushed him into early retirement, Sandorn accepts being recalled to active duty and propelled to the front lines. This time, he will protect his crew and the inhabitants of the Exeter star system from any approaching threat—never again will he leave anyone behind.

But outnumbered, outgunned, and outflanked, Exeter Station is left running at a fraction of its operating capacity. Sandorn and the Alliance officers on board must strategize quickly and carefully to hold their ground, or they will be forced to surrender the station, the system, and their lives.

For fans of epic space operas, like Jack Campbell’s Lost Fleet series, Jasper T. Scott’s Dead Space series, and David Weber’s Honor Harrington series.

Every crew member aboard the Veloz ran from stem to stern working tirelessly to patch every hole in the ship. The damage was critical to the point that nearly half the ship had been evacuated. With so little power available, compartmental force fields were inoperable, leaving only a single fire door between repair crews and the vacuum of space in many areas.

Not a single deck was spared at least some devastation, for as the ship’s superstructure twisted and contorted under heavy firepower, panels came loose and circuits overloaded throughout resulting in debris littering every room and corridor. The floors weren’t only littered with discarded paneling and blown circuitry, but also injured, dying, and dead crew members. The initial unexpected surprise attack caused the most death and destruction, taking over a hundred lives. Then as the battle wore on, further loss of life was inevitable.

The victory was Pyrrhic, but it was a victory, nonetheless.


Author BiographyThom Bedford

Thom grew up in suburban Cheshire, England with his parents and brother. During school he had a propensity for creativity, either writing, building models, painting, or programming. Every subject choice was motivated by creating and building, whether it be design technology, graphic design, programming, or creative writing.

After studying Computer Science at The University of Manchester, he started working as a Software Developer. Following in his father’s footsteps, he worked as a Technical Consultant in London for several years, then in Data Warehousing back in Manchester.

In his spare time, Thom still writes, build models, paints, and programs, but nowadays also listens to a lot of music, watches a lot of films, and enjoys playing computer games.

His love for science fiction comes from blockbuster films like Starship Troopers, Star Wars and Star Trek, as well as B-movies like Wing Commander, Pitch Black, and Iron Sky. Computer games like Homeworld, EVE-Online, and Stellaris, and books like Jack Campbell’s Lost Fleet series, Jasper T. Scott’s Dead Space series, and David Weber’s Honor Harrington series. In other words, sci-fi—particularly space opera—in any media.

Thom currently lives in Cheshire, England, with his wife, Helen, and their two cats.

Working at a women’s magazine definitely has its perks, including a free vacation to the Bahamas. The catch? I have to help my best friend, Gem, host a singles cruise that uses your zodiac sign to match you with your soulmate.
Ya know, if you drink the Kool-Aid.
I find the whole thing amusing until she starts to set me up with every Aquarius, Cancer, and Virgo on the boat.
Then I meet Gage. A Leo.
He’s the exact opposite of my ideal match by zodiac standards, and is the perfect solution to get Gem off my back.
Then the stars align, and I find myself drowning in love whether I want to or not.
But I guess that’s what I deserve for tempting fate.
If only he felt the same way.
Kelsie is a sucker for a love story with all the feels. When she’s not chasing words for her next book, you will probably find her reading or, more likely, hanging out with her husband and playing with her three kiddos who love to drive her crazy.
She adores photography, baking, her two adorable dogs, and her pain-in-the-butt cat. And now that she’s actively pursuing her writing dreams, she’s set her sights on someday finding the self-discipline to not binge-watch an entire series on Netflix in one sitting.
