Out of the Dark is a call for teacher leaders to take a stand against the current neoliberal take over of our educational system today. This book investigates where this political power hold began, theorizes why is it so hard for us to change what is happening, and then explores theory into practice for supporting the development of a democratic curriculum. Out of the Dark highlights example schools in various states that are fighting the monopoly of standardization by implementing their own version of visionary democratic education. This book is purposefully heavy on references as to encourage teachers to become curriculum leaders through research and complicated conversation that they have with themselves and with each other. It is time to stand together against the over utilization and magnified importance of standardized testing in our educational system in the United States. The time is now to envision a democratic education based on an eclectic compilation of curriculum theory and fight for the significant educational contribution of our own professional wisdom, prompting democratic empowerment for our students.

Gay men have a decades-long, complicated history with the horror genre. While working behind-the-scenes to create some of the most iconic terrors on film (such as James Whale's Frankenstein, Bride of Frankenstein and The Invisible Man), they watched themselves portrayed on screen with sinister subtext, or "the best friend who dies first" victimhood. But in the last twenty years there has been a significant shift in the horror world courtesy of a growing number of out authors, screenwriters, directors and actors working to scare you. Out In the Dark: Interviews with Gay Filmmakers, Actors and Authors introduces you to many of these men with interviews and insights into their work and their lives. From mainstream Hollywood filmmakers (Don Mancini, Child's Play and the Chucky films) to indie exploitation mainstays (Joshua Grannell aka Peaches Christ, All About Evil); prolific authors (Douglas Clegg, The Children's Hour) to small press niche writers (Alan Kelly, Let Me Die a Woman); recently out teen idols (Wesley Eure, Land of the Lost) to gay indie staples (Matthew Montgomery, Socket), Out In the Dark offers new perspectives on the interstitial realm of the queer and horrific.

Dr. Sam Keo

Dr. Sam Keo is now an honored clinical psychologist working for the county of Los Angeles, and his story is one of triumph over adversity—but not without a cost. The third of eleven children, Sam was in the eleventh grade when the Khmer Rouge took over Cambodia. They abolished schools and sent the children to work on farms. Those they deemed a threat were tortured and starved. Sam was sent to these farms, where he was beaten, tortured, and left for dead on numerous occasions. His father and sister were killed by the Communists, and four of his younger brothers died of starvation and disease before they reached the age of ten. But Sam refused to die; he eventually made the journey to what he hoped would be a better life in America. Like many of his fellow Cambodians, Sam struggles with the impact of posttraumatic stress disorder, or PTSD. His own unique experiences, from trauma to success, have made it easier for him to empathize with others facing similar stresses. There are uncalculated challenges in the underserved Asian population, especially among the former refugees from Southeast Asia, such as the Cambodian, Hmong, Laotian, and Vietnamese people. He was told that America was the land of opportunity, but that was a dream the young immigrant found difficult to pursue. His Cambodian caseworker told him that he would never amount to anything, but he refused to let his dream die either. Now, he shares his story.

D. B. Lewis

The second in a series of novels named 'Ends & Means' is set in the University sector and considers the effect of matters beyond the control of individuals, on their responsibilities and behaviour. Disasters, man-made or otherwise have effects far beyond those immediately affected. The consequences ripple from the source with no regard to the limits of personal trauma. In October 1966 there was a tragedy in a small mining village in South Wales when a waste tip slid down the mountainside, engulfing a farmhouse, a primary school and a row of houses. 116 children and 28 adults were buried alive in a sea of slurry. No-one's life would ever be the same again.

The Galactic Hegemony has been around a long time, and it likes stability--the kind of stability that member species like the aggressive, carnivorous Shongairi tend to disturb. So when the Hegemony Survey Force encountered a world whose so-called "sentients"—"humans," they called themselves—were almost as bad as the Shongairi themselves, it seemed reasonable to use the Shongairi to neutralize them before they could become a second threat to galactic peace. And if the Shongairi took a few knocks in the process, all the better. Now, Earth is conquered. The Shongairi have arrived in force, and humanity’s cities lie in radioactive ruins. In mere minutes, more than half the human race has died. Master Sergeant Stephen Buchevsky, who thought he was being rotated home from his latest tour in Afghanistan, finds himself instead prowling the back country of the Balkans, dodging alien patrols and trying to organize scattered survivors without getting killed. And in the southeastern US, firearms instructor and former Marine Dave Dvorak finds himself at the center of a growing network of resistance—putting his extended family at lethal risk, but what else can you do? On the face of it, Buchevsky’s and Dvorak’s chances look bleak, as do prospects for the rest of the surviving human race. But it may well be that Shongairi and the Hegemony alike have underestimated the inhabitants of that strange planet called Earth…
