The diary arrived addressed to me, bearing a message: We live forever through our stories. Tell ours. And so began the author's journey into the life and legends of the Naga—a forgotten people living in the far north-east of India, struggling to survive in the modern world. An extraordinarily powerful and evocative literary work that traverses new ground in the hinterland between biography and mythology. Nagaland is the story of Augustine and of the Naga people. With sensitively poetic prose, Doherty deftly draws the reader into worlds of parallel realities. The love story, desperate and damned, destined for tragedy; forged and upheld against the wishes of family and the dictates of culture, with a backdrop of violence and reprisals amidst the brutality of communal conflict. Alongside this is the telling of Augustine's childhood story, growing up in the beautiful mountain state of Nagaland where the traditional way of life, loyalties and beliefs collide with modern...

The Haunted Corn Maze

Every Halloween, thousands of kids across the nation frequent "haunted" corn mazes looking for a good scare. But for a group of teenagers in rural Kansas, an innocent night out turns into a horrific ordeal. And it's up to one detective to solve the case and figure out what's really going on at the corn maze.Did Norse explorers journey to Minnesota in 1362, and carve a 200 lb stone with a runic message found by a Swedish farmer in 1898? Or, was it an elaborate hoax? The controversy has been swirling for 115 years. The Kensington Rune Stone remains an enigma because, while it cannot be proven authentic without corroborating evidence, neither can it be proven a forgery.“Far to the West of Vinland,” is a scenario that I believe to be consistent with the best evidence. In its fictionalized human context, it is a story of money, power and pride, and how they combined to produce the Kensington Rune Stone. For objective investigators, perhaps it can illuminate how some apparently anomalous pieces of the KRS puzzle, may have fallen into place. I leave its relative believability up to you.
