* Featured story in the horror anthology, "Midnight Never Ends." Along For The Ride deals in the power of privilege. That unbalanced order of a class system that allows some men a life of wealth with ease, and others the drab tasteless existence of servitude. While the female of the species needs only the blessing of a pretty face to open the doors that will lead her to the paths of fortune. Tom Farrell's road is one littered with failure, regret, and bad luck. However, a chance at true love can change a man in ways that make murder nothing more than a game for children. Tom Farrell had always wished hell on his boss, Clark Randolph. On New Year's Eve, Hell sent someone.

In his own words Larry Woody, who has covered racing for over 30 years, will give readers never before seen quips, tales and anecdotes about some of the most famous names in racing. Here are just a few of the highlights: how about the time Richard Petty almost bought a race track, or, why Darrell Waltrip once wanted to punch out some race fans. Or the night that repo wrecker driver-turned-NASCAR star Bobby Hamilton was attacked by the owner of a car he was trying to tow away. Or the worried elevator conversation Jeff Gordon had with wife Brooke after crashing Dale Earnhardt at Daytona. What prominent driver was the biggest pain to deal with? (not Tony Stewart).

Being a misfit does not disqualify you from a dynamic life―it prepares you for it. Matthew Barnett knows a thing or two about misfits. As founder of the Dream Center in Los Angeles, a twenty-four-hour church that ministers to thirty-five thousand hurting people a week, Barnett has seen a little of everything. Gangsters, addicts, orphans, taggers, cutters, the sick, the suffering, the hopeless―all the misfits of the world come through the Dream Center’s doors in search of hope. But when Barnett first arrived in LA, it was he who felt like the misfit. In Misfits Welcome, he shares the simple, life-changing lesson he has learned from twenty years of ministering to the forgotten: Being a misfit prepares you to do the work of the Lord. Have you found yourself in a jarring new era of life? Have your circumstances deviated drastically from your plans? Maybe you’ve felt like a misfit all your life, or maybe you’re still haunted by yesterday’s mistakes. Whatever the case, rejoice! It is at your most broken that you are most ready for what God has in store. Misfits Welcome is not just about embracing the misfits around us―it is about embracing the misfits within us and using them for the glory of God.
