In Shakespeare and the Dawn of Modern Science, renowned astronomy expert Peter Usher expands upon his allegorical interpretation of Hamlet and analyzes four more plays, Love's Labour's Lost, Cymbeline, The Merchant of Venice, and The Winter's Tale. With painstaking thoroughness, he dissects the plays and reveals that, contrary to current belief, Shakespeare was well aware of the scientific revolutions of his time. Moreover, Shakespeare imbeds in the allegorical subtext information on the appearances of the Sun, Moon, planets, and stars that he could not have known without telescopic aid, yet these plays appeared coeval with or prior to the commonly accepted date of 1610 for the invention and first use of the astronomical telescope. Dr. Usher argues that an early telescope, the so-called perspective glass, was the likely means for the acquisition of these data. This device was invented by the mathematician Leonard Digges, whose grandson of the same name contributed poems to the First and Second Folio editions of Shakespeare's plays. Shakespeare and the Dawn of Modern Science is an important addition to literature, history, and science collections as well as to personal libraries.

Jeffery Mitchell, housed in the North Bay Hospital in a unit for the criminally insane, masterminds a perfect escape after a two-year stint, leaving staff and authorities baffled and outraged. He was the last person the townsfolk would have guessed to be responsible for the murder of his lovely wife and three young children. Jeffery heads westward, landing in the scenic and beautiful city of Calgary, Alberta, injured and requiring medical help. He risks aid at Mercy Hospital, only to have his world thrown into utter chaos by spotting young Dr. Meyers on his way out the door. Could it be her? How? She is dead, his mind screams as he ogles the doctor. Dr. Meyers's organized and ideal life turns upside down by the relentless endeavors of Jeffery stalking and harassing her, and she soon experiences a loss of all that matters to her. Jeffery, astute and able to stay forever a step ahead of the authorities, sends a ripple of fear and uncertainty upon this once-peaceful-and-safe city. The police have their hands full with unsolved crimes as the human carnage mounts around them, most victims being young children. The public screams for justice and answers, but none is forthcoming. The voices in Jeffery Mitchell's mind continue to instruct him and encourage him to fulfill his unique mission, beginning with Dr. Meyers. His mind cannot sort through what is real and what is not. Disturbing memories of the long-ago past invade and plague his present, causing confusion and uncertainty. Remaining free is detrimental to him, and he will stop at nothing to be sure this is intact. When Dr. Meyers runs out of options to maintain her peace of mind and physical safety, she transfers to a hospital on the ocean-side city of Vancouver, not realizing her shadow is hot on her trail. The death of Jeffery's roommate sets in motion events of revenge as Oliver begins to trail him to avenge his beloved sister's morbid death. D482E Bonie Wiliamson Jeff cannot escape his past any more than he his present, leaving his future uncertain and open for a loss of his most valued treasure, his freedom. After great determination, Oliver locates the murderer of his sweet sister Mariah, with plans of his own. A cabin set in the middle of nowhere awaits Jeffery Mitchell, and new life is breathed into his memories of a brutal and horrific past.
