First Edition Design Publishing Releases New Book, “Valley of Stars” by Niels Andersen

Valley of Stars, by Niels Andersen, thrusts the reader into the brutal and unforgiving battle against the jihadist Islamic Caliphate.

Lakeville, MN, USA — In Niels Andersen’s Valley of Stars, watch Staff Sergeant Shirin Kirkorian, nicknamed “The Lioness,” an intelligence asset and first female to complete Ranger training and Lieutenant Colonel Abdul Qadir, a Shia, unique among Afghan officers race to find a place in the Afghan mountains called the Valley of Stars. A treasure trove of precious metals, the Valley could fund Islamic extremism for generations and ignites a ferocious struggle to secure it. The fighting could engulf the world in a gripping story of faith, conflict, intrigue, and heroism.

The tentacles of the Caliphate’s violent ideology expand across the globe and blur the lines between ally and enemy. The twisting confluence of Islamic extremism, politics, and war force the players to battle both external and internal enemies. As the scope and ferocity of the fighting expands across Afghanistan, it threatens to engulf the whole world in a gripping story of faith, conflict, intrigue, and heroism.

Author Niels Andersen is a retired Air Force Lieutenant Colonel whose career took him to operating theaters around the world. From desert sands to the storied halls of the Pentagon, he taps a deep well of experience working on long range national and military strategy. As an amateur military history and strategy buff he draws on past and current events to shape his stories and blur the lines between fact and fiction. He hopes this is the first of several books in a series that highlights the extraordinary work of ordinary people in the relentless pursuit of our national defense.

Niels lives in Minnesota with his wife and family cat. In addition to writing, he works with recovering and at-risk adults to help them rejoin the competitive workforce. Between work, writing, and helping his wife with her quilting projects, he keeps very busy.

Paradigm Shift Reflects Essential Turning Point in the Conscious Evolution of Mankind on Planet Earth

Prolific Author-Philosopher Notes that the Way Forward Embraces the Abundant Synergy of Man and Woman Balance.

Las Vegas, NV, USA — In his new treatise, author and philosopher Christopher Alan Anderson offers an educational writing that points to a different direction for our collective lives. In these turbulent times, with mankind and Planet Earth at a turning point, he asks, “What is the actual foundation we can base life upon?”

The Man and Woman Manifesto: What We Believe! answers this question, presenting a paradigm shift into Man and Woman Balance, a system of understanding the universe in terms of the fundamental polarities of maleness and femaleness and the balance thereof.

In religious terms, Anderson clarifies, we might say, “If there is a ‘God the Father’ there must also be a ‘God the Mother,’ not a ‘God the Mother’ as a secondary existence to ‘God the Father’ but as an equal and opposite primary existence to ‘God the Father.'” In philosophical terms, “Only [sexual] opposites can unite to then again divide…creating the spiritual lineage of [procreant] love.” This essential balanced interdependence offers a rich and life-enhancing reality all human beings can live by.

In an era in which it is clear our past and current religious and political structures have failed us, Anderson notes that many are confused about which way to turn. He comments, “We are being offered a sexual progressivism through L, G, B, T, Q as well as an existential threat in Islamic radicalism. In the meantime, our own constitutional system of governance and Christian roots seem to comprise a history, so what is the way forward? How are we to move ahead without a foundation based on life itself?”

The Man and Woman Manifesto: What We Believe! asserts that life is the only state of existence between male and female and that love is its one expression. The author further suggests that their every moment/touch is a spiritual resurrection/rebirth. In other words, procreation is not just physical in nature but spiritual as well. With this understanding, concludes Anderson, we may truly “love ye one another.”

He explains, “Love is a good place from which to begin the life endeavor, as Man and Woman Balance can only be an expression of love.” In short, “Man and woman can only love each other, now and forever,” so might not this living reality, both on an individual basis and within the world at large, be the actual foundation from which we can live together?

Anderson cautions, “This is not an easy book, but if you can capture and live its essence, your life will forevermore have purpose.”

About the Author: Christopher Alan Anderson received the basis of his education from the University of Science and Philosophy, Swannanoa, Waynesboro, Virginia. He resides in the transcendental/romantic tradition, that vein of spiritual creativity of the philosopher and poet. His quest has been to define and express an eternal romantic reality from which a man and a woman can together stand in their differences and create a living universe of procreative love. Mr. Anderson began these writings in 1971. The first writings were published in 1985. When asked to describe their overall message, he responded, “Spiritual procreation. Mankind has yet to distinguish the two sexes on the spiritual level. In this failure lies the root of our problems and why we cannot yet touch the eternal together. The message of man and woman balance brings each of us together in love with our eternal other half right now.”
