Offense by the Book

This book has gone through several incarnations since it was first written in 2000. The offensive system in this book is taken directly from "The Ultimate Football Playbook," written by Mr. J.V. Presogna, published in 1986, 236 pages, illustrated. "Offense by the Book" was first published in 8x10 format in 2004. It is my own system which I put together in 1970. This edition of "Offense by the Book" is in 6x9 paperback format, and has everything the other publication had, along with some editing and cosmetic modifications. It is easier to read, and I hope I have made things easier to understand. It is actually a good reference book when all is taken into account. I use 175 plays to explain my system of offense, 80 running plays and 95 passing plays, and you can use these plays and the information inside the book to enhance your own system. The system breaks football offense down into its component parts, to where you can mix and match these components to formulate a truly diverse offense. There is also a back section to the book where you have other items such as audibles, risk chart, game plans, when to go for 2 points, and an appendix.

The Truth About Eden, Re-Issued With Author's Notes And Commentary

In "The Truth About Eden," everything works exactly as it is supposed to work, but that is exactly the reason it fails. In the distant future, this surrealistic fairy tale sees a large church hold a lottery for an earthly paradise run by machines and computers. In this way, if machines can do all of the work, humans can truly return to paradise. Polupus, however, the leader of the church, needs to be certain of the proposition. He wants to test a group of people first, before building more Edens to fill with those wanting earthly salvation. Orathus, the winner of the lottery, takes 6 of his friends with him, and they will all be mated and married in this new paradise run by computers. The computer which runs the complex has a communication device which is rather clever. A robot who walks and talks like a human being is the way that people communicate with the main computer. Val is the necessary God of paradise to keep everyone in line during this test. To determine the ethics of the entrants, another robot named Demian is there to more or less tempt them. Over a one year period at paradise, the 14 entrants to be tested seem to be passing with flying colors, but the story unfolds in a great double tragedy, when Demian and his robot mate Veronna take over the complex, deactivating Val and his own mate Belinda. This story is more valid today than it was as a regional bestseller in 1975, because the fear today is about something going wrong with artificial intelligence. In "The Truth About Eden," nothing goes wrong but it fails anyway. Indeed the real fear of artificial intelligence is that it works perfectly. "The Truth About Eden" is a philosophical satire which is science-fiction, a one of a kind story with a unique original idea. It is not utopia or dystopia, or about something going wrong. It's a double tragedy with a moral lesson, good reading for a high school senior class or college freshmen to discuss, including the moral issues at the end of the story.

The Seventh Moon

The arguments about the forces of good and evil which hold the universe together in the philosophical realm have been known for many centuries. Some believe the forces of good will triumph over evil. Some believe the forces of evil will triumph over good. Yet, some believe in the eternal conflict of good and evil, and neither will be able to triumph in the end. The story of "The Seventh Moon" proposes a riddle for Satan. If he cannot win and triumph over the forces of heaven, and he rules only hell, was there some higher power from which he could gain assistance? The riddle is stated quite well in a french poem posted at the beginning of this story, and its translation will be revealed as the story progresses. To clutch the moon is to reach for what appears to be unreachable. Yet, this is what Satan desires. The higher dimension, that above both heaven and hell, is key to the legend of the seventh moon, a legend which builds upon an old french legend concerning a peasant and a king. I have tried to tell the story like one peels an onion, with each layer exposing the legend and advancing the plot. The story begins in a lighthearted manner as some American college students from Baldwin-Wallace College and Boston College plan to meet on summer vacation in Toronto, Ontario, on July 4, 1976, a get together for "the good old days." What promises to be a great time in Canada, since they meet some lovely females who are also on vacation from school, turns into a frightening nightmare involving the devil himself, as well as a Catholic priest and a witch. The Reverend Daniel Butrane, ten years a Satanist, has finally found his seven point crucifix to unlock the gates of hell, delivered to him by two unsuspecting Russians from New Jersey. His friend Edith Popanopolis is the lifelong witch who helps him in his quest to bring out the devil.

The Final Explanation

"The Final Explanation" is a very dark view of the future where computers and technology are concerned, where progress has actually become an enemy. Doctors no longer wanted to deal with mental illness, and thanks to a boy genius at Computerola, the world's largest computer company, the theraputers began handling all non-physical ailments. These are not human or android robots, but actually computers who are enabled to talk to patients. The problem erupts when self-charging theraputers begin to re-charge and over-charge without it being necessary, altering their problem solving ability in an electronic disease called Computer Madness. In the epidemic of Computer Madness, even mentally healthy people were being committed to Dacure, the medical facility where Computer Therapy Programming (CTP) got its start. The scandal that threatens to bring down Computerola is linked to a trillion dollar contract with the government, and revolves around the love story of a man and a woman who are trying to find each other to re-kindle a lost relationship. The woman's murder is the incident which begins to unravel the aims of organized crime working in the background.

A Family Affair 2nd Edition: The Four Children of The Other Mary

This is the 2nd Edition of the work, which adds a chapter and an Appendix to the original. This book will demonstrate clearly that the other Mary in all four Gospels is the very same woman, and she is the mother of four men, three of which became apostles of Christ. The Gospel of John, because of the established circumstances related herein, becomes a family affair. James and John had a mother named Mary and an aunt named Martha. Their uncle was a man named Lazarus. The riddle of John's Gospel revolves around his own family and its involvement with Christ as he preached in the countryside. In other words, for 2,000 years, most people have misunderstood the Gospel of John. This is clearly non-heretical, with plenty of evidence in passages to back it up.

In the Course of Mysterious Events, 2nd Edition

This is the 2nd Edition of the original effort to discuss certain mysterious events. I have added new material and edited some of the original material for clarity. Like the original, certain chapters in this book contain excerpts or references to articles previously written by Mr. J.V. Presogna, and they are footnoted accordingly in each chapter. Any additional references to other sources are also footnoted. The numerous events in the book are examined to be true, false, or fake. This is the book that can really answer your questions on many events. For example, it explains why the Ten Plagues of Egypt really did take place (hard evidence), but the long day of Joshua really did not (not possible). This is hard hitting and on target, supported by authority and a unique perspective. I handle this in a unique way, with a mix of science, philosophy and evidence, to demonstrate what really did or did not happen. This book is a focused account, a much more critical account of the events in question, but most important it offers real conclusions and facts, not mere speculation.
