Worth The Trip (a Fisher's Light Companion Novella)
***This is a prequel novella to Fisher's Light. It is about the life of Trip Fisher. Fisher's Light should be read before Worth the Trip*** It's time for me to tell my story. I know I'm a coward for waiting this long to explain my side of things. I know I should have tried long before now to make amends. There's nothing like staring right at death's door to put a fire under your ass. I'm going to die with enough regrets to fill ten notebooks and that's a tough pill to swallow, but when I meet my maker, I want to be able to hold my head high with the knowledge that at least I confronted all of those regrets. The Life and Times of Trip Fisher I'm sorry, I love you, please forgive me.
A Flight With The Swallows
In a deep window seat, hidden by crimson curtains from the room beyond, a little girl was curled up, looking out upon a trim garden, where the first autumn leaves were falling one September afternoon. The view was bounded by a high wall, and above the wall, the east end of Colchester Cathedral stood up a dark mass against the pale-blue sky. Every now and then a swallow darted past the window, with its forked tail and whitish breast; then there was a twittering and chirping in the nests above, as the swallows talked to each other of their coming flight.
A Light Unto My Path
Many congregations and church leaders are faced with the collapse of the institutional church culture in America. A great number of them have retreated inside their four walls and created church activities to replace their Christ-given mission to make disciples, and thereby extending His kingdom on earth "thy kingdom come." Abandoning their mission means they have abandoned their real identity and reason for existence. Others have gone to the other extreme by selling out to the culture. Their worship service is a form of entertainment with the objective "to feel good" and "be happy." Both choices have turned off many saved people, and they have left the church. In 1998, a Barna poll reflected that 20 million born-again Christians had withdrawn their membership. Today's poll shows an increase to 115,000 million. Many are out there striving to reboost the church's lost mission "to make disciples" and "thy kingdom come." God has not changed His mind!

Shakespeare's Tempest In Baconian Light
From the Preface.
When some years ago, I undertook to read Shakespeare's "Tempest" in one of the higher classes of our school, my pupils, I venture to say, greatly enjoyed the play as an unparalleled romantic drama. They were brought to admire, and in some degree, to appreciate the work.
I myself, however, while making use of the editions commented upon by Delius, and Hamann, and after consulting Gervinus, Clemens, Roden, etc., was more and more plunged into a chaos of doubts as to the purport and bearing of the play itself. "Why was the 'Tempest' placed at the head of the plays in the Great Folio? - How must we interpret: Sycorax was grown into a hoop? - For one thing she did? - How must we explain the part of Prospero? - How the Epilogue? etc. etc." -
Beset by these, and a host of similar questions, I was induced to consult some other books, such as were at hand at the library of the Heidelberg University, e. g. Ignatius Donnelly: The Great Cryptogram; Vitzthum von Eckstaedt: Shakespeare and Shakspere; Edwin Bormann: das Shakespeare-Geheimnis; Kuno Fischer: Shakespeare und die Bacon-Mythen etc. Being, however, precipitated into an abyss of uncertainty, by the study of these books, I finally dropped the matter altogether, mainly because for some years succeeding I was suffering from ill health.
Having recovered from illness, and looking out for some other books at our library, during the last Christmas holidays, I came across some recent books about Shakespeare, especially the "New Variorum Edition of the Tempest", by Horace Edward Furness; Bacon and Shakespeare Parallelisms, by Edwin Reed, and others; and so powerful was the attraction of these books that I made up my mind for another attempt.
While reading again in class, and enjoying more than ever, the fascinating scenes of the "Tempest", owing to the new light being thrown on them from the new selection of reference-books, I could not, in spite of all these helps, come to a clear insight into the "main question", which was nowhere broached by Furness, viz. the much disputed problem about the personality of the poet. In vain struggling for light upon that mysterious question, which seemed to me paramount for a thorough and truly scientific interpretation of the play, I resolved to make a last effort, by consulting the works of Sir Francis Bacon themselves (collected and edited by Spedding, Ellis, and Heath; in fourteen volumes).
The result of this investigation, as set forth in this essay, which I now submit to the impartial criticism of the reader, was surprising indeed.
In calling the "Tempest" a dramatization of the "Instauratio Magna", I do not merely mean the work published, by Bacon in 1620 (a copy of the frontispiece of which is reproduced in this essay), but in that general title I include the whole of the prose work of Bacon, from the Partus Temporis Maximus (1585), to the New Atlantis and Sylva Sylvarum, both of them published after Sir Francis' death.
I frankly admit that the "Tempest", viewed in this Baconian light, no longer offers a suitable reading matter for all our schools. I further humbly submit that this essay pretends to be no more than the first attempt at a broad inquiry into the identity of ideas, as laid down in the "Tempest", and positively found in the prose work of Bacon.
