This book looks at several archeological structures found in Cork harbour but focussing on the Martello Towers. It also explores why these towers were built and why they were built in Cork. It will also aim to provide a historic background as to why these towers were built and why the design of the Martello towers differs from those built elsewhere. It will also provide an insight into the defenses of Cork harbour and the need for Martello Towers in 19th Century Cork harbour. Though it will provide a historical background its main purpose is an archeological study of these Martello Towers but it also is a good story. A story well worth reading for anyone interested in history, folklore or archeology or indeed in all 3 disciplines. I've done my best to make it interesting, and succeeded in my opinion, and to focus not just on the facts but also on the story behind the towers. I have enjoyed researching and writing this ebook and I'm sure you will enjoy reading it. If you interested in finding out more about the Martello Towers you will find a very extensive bibliography at the end and a reference list. You are also free to email me at: firstname.lastname@example.org with your questions.
If you enjoy contemporary, unconventional folktales, fairy tales or ghost stories with a dash of the macabre, you'll love this short story from new author Jan M. Leotti! "The last time autumn storms blew through the town of Merfisham, a young woman disappeared..." This time, the September winds deliver a headless bartender on the front steps of Keels, the local pub. The townspeople are enchanted by his charm, but not everyone believes his presence is a blessing. With the arrival of Serena O'Dell, a moon-eyed woman in search of romance and a husband, three old fishermen in the village predict another storm will soon follow. Driven by her desire for love, Serena pursues the new bartender, and is more than willing to overlook his missing head. One night, on the way home from a date with him, she spies a ghostly figure hovering above the bay. Was it merely a trick of the fog? Why won't the bartender tell her how he lost his head? In the name of love, Serena means to find out. To learn more about Jan M. Leotti's fiction and her new young adult vampire novel, visit her author page at Amazon.com or her blog.
Bring Women Back To Your Room With Ease You have made it. The lights from the MGM Grand are gleaming down on you and the excitement of folks partying on the strip is all around you. People are making their way to the slot machines, rolling out chips at the poker tables, nearly every guy you see seems to be dressed in a suit with a loose tie hanging around his neck and everyone - sincerely everyone - is loading up their giant glasses with drinks outside in the open. Some would call this debauched. Others would call this heaven. To boot, some of the most attractive (and scantily clad) women you have ever seen are sprawled in every corner you set your eyes on, clearly looking for company. You are in Las Vegas, the self-appointed "Sin City" mecca of the world and you have one goal: Not to go back to your apartment alone. However there is a problem. You have heard the rumors and the infamous Vegas reputation has made its way upon your ears; that it will cost you a grip, or a grand, in a club or casino for you to get laid.
