The Adventures of Jimmy Crikey


by Wallace E Briggs

The seventh stand- alone adventure on the series about Jimmy Crikey, the orphaned alien who chose to make his life on Earth, is not magical, but he has unique skills that come in useful when his family of friends in Roombelow need help.

Roombelow is suffering from the aftereffects of the rock-chewing Scarab beatles that undermined the town and the world of the Diamites, and even the water-world of the Aquamites is crumbling.

Unexpectedly, a hole appeared in the centre of the Aquamites’ Emerald Lake. Not only does the lake begin to empty, but thirty Aquamites have been swept away in the flow and end up in the lake belonging to the Tritians.

Rescue cannot come soon enough because the Tritians live in a radioactive environment that poisons the young Aquamites, and Jimmy’s close friend Annison is seriously in trouble.

Jimmy organises for the young Aquamites to be rescued by his technologically advanced home race in the star world of Attalia. Twenty-eight Aquamites were saved, but one was beyond help. To Jimmy’s dismay, Annison refused treatment until all her friends had been treated. As a result, the Attalians could not save her. Annison slipped into a coma from which they could not revive her.

Is Annison doomed to a living death, or can Jimmy call upon aid from a higher authority?

The Land of Hearts

by Antwinette Scott

Heartwarming Journey to Wholeness and Healing

"The Land of Hearts" by Antwinette Scott, is a true gem.
