Our world has been changed. We have been changed. Emblazoned in our collective consciousness are indelible, fresh images of unspeakable carnage. We will carry these images with us - shaped in psychic scar tissue - for the rest of our lives. For some of us, September 11 will mark the date we lost an acquaintance, a colleague, or a loved one. For many of us, especially our children, it will mark the date we lost a certain degree of innocence. For all of us, it will mark a dark milestone on the landscape of our memories. My 11-year-old son came home from school that Tuesday with an unsettling bloodlust in his eyes. He had seen the events unfold and was having a purely visceral reaction.

'Chinese Chess': Thrilling Tale of Nuclear Attack on American Soil Reveals Age-old Game of Strategy in which the Battle Pits Good Against Evil

UNIONVILLE, Ontario, May 11 /PRNewswire/ -- Born in 1947, a few years after the end of World War II, author Joseph Pilarski's early memories were of growing up in post-Holocaust Poland. Exposed to many post war documentaries, including actual footage shot by the Nazis in the concentration camps, Pilarski spent many years wondering how and why evil is able to dominate the human existence and why people often seem powerless to stop it. "Chinese Chess: A Novel Threat to America" (published by iUniverse), is part of Pilarski's effort to come to terms with this issue. "I wrote 'Chinese Chess' to further contemplate a nuclear attack on American soil," explains Pilarski, who immigrated to Canada in 1963 at the age of sixteen. "I chose to call the book 'Chinese Chess' after the popular game of strategy that represents a fierce battle between two enemies. In the book, the ... (more)
