I Will Eat a Crocodile!

By Kim A. Rush

Join the third-coast’s new P.I. on an unexpected love, murder, and heart break adventure. Humphrey Straight gets a P.I. license on a bet and it throws him into desperate trouble, love, and the self-realization of being only one in twelve billion people who have lived on this earth.

Ride with him on a cherry 69 Bonneville Triumph through the next to be classic version of the not so hard-boiled detective. Meet the beautiful Croatian woman, Mirrela, and follow the clues to see if you can figure out the mystery. Enjoy the lovely Lake Michigan and swim in the excellent prose style of this author. Touch the face of deftly used literary allusions and relive those quality books from the English Literature canon.

You will laugh, cringe, and cry—maybe even weep– while caught up in this great quest. It’s a story with Universal Human Value which will cause every reader to share, understand, and feel the plot that won’t let anyone put this human story away.

Semiosphere and the Metamorphoses of the Religious

By Rayka Rush

Do religions change? Anyone raised in a religion sees this tradition as one set in stone. This study shows the opposite, thus it focuses on the metamorphoses of the religious showing religions as complex and dynamic systems of change. The religious begins with the existential openness to the universe as a system. This is a natural ability of the mind to sense an unseen reality as the unlimited semiosis such as God, the supreme, or spirits. The author defines religious experience as the semiotic space. This inner space often challenges “orthodoxy” or “orthopraxy” bringing changes. The best known example is the Western epoch of modernity, where the semantic ethical and aesthetic religious potentials have been transformed from the religious into the secular sphere. The Semiotic Theory of Religion based on semiotics of Charles Sanders Peirce, Umberto Eco, Yuri Lotman, and the communicative evolution theory of Jürgen Habermas explains the secularization processes of the religious and their effects on politics, arts, and spirituality. The Semiotic Theory of Religion posits a view on religion as one of the most dynamic socio-cultural sub-systems of change within the Semiosphere.
