From 1901 to 1969, Angels Flight was America's most famous incline railway, familiar from its many appearances on postcards and in pulp fiction and film noir. It inspired the titles of five novels, including a 1999 best seller, and three films. Angels Flight's two colorful trolleys glided up and down the side of Bunker Hill in the heart of Los Angeles, carrying 100 million passengers between a downtown business district and a Victorian aerie that gradually deteriorated into a gritty slum. When the city turned Bunker Hill into an acropolis of skyscrapers, Angels Flight was packed up like a boy's electric train set and stored away for nearly 30 years. After a restoration in the mid-1990s that led to a fatal accident, Angels Flight has reopened and is now ready to claim its next chapters in Los Angeles history.

The old saying is true. Knowledge really is power, especially when angels and gods play the game. The original Immortals, masters of magic, once reigned over every world in the known universe-until they suddenly vanished. The gods and demons have been fighting over the remains of their fractured empire ever since. Millennia later, new angel Leda, a soldier in the gods' army, is recuperating from her transformation. Her recovery is cut short, however, when a curse strikes New York City, a spell targeted directly at the Legion of Angels. Even as the Legion's soldiers succumb to wrath, jealousy, and fear, the beasts on the plains of monsters are growing in numbers and power. And the longer Leda and her archangel lover Nero investigate these phenomena, the closer they come to the ancient secret that destroyed the Immortals-and that now threatens to tear the Earth apart. Angel's Flight is the eighth book in the Legion of Angels series.

Before the oil boom and rise of Hollywood brought today's renowned landmarks to downtown Los Angeles, an entirely different and often forgotten high Victorian city existed. Prior to Union Station, there was the impressive Romanesque Arcade Station of the Southern Pacific line in the 1880s. Before UCLA, the Gothic Revival State Normal School stood in place of today's Los Angeles Public Library. Elsewhere the city held Victorian pleasure gardens, amusement piers and even an ostrich farm, all lost to time and the rapid modernization of a new century. Local author Charles Epting reveals Los Angeles's unknown past at the turn of the twentieth century through the prominent citizens, events and major architectural styles that propelled the growth of a nascent city.

The Electrifying Angel's Flight (sequel) to The Electrifying Demise Six years have passed, and Angel Flight Gulf Stream medically equipped air transport plane fleet has added Angel Flight Four and Angel Flight Six. The people in The Dalles, Oregon, are law-abiding citizens. The stories unfold, and new residents are welcomed, each having a fascinating history. The Michael Murphy & Son Electrical Contractors business was the financier for the formation of Mike Murphy (the son) to realize his dream of becoming a MediVac service to people free of any charges. Mike and Susan have their wedding anniversary evening without fanfare. Mike is needing flight crews for additional planes, and the encounter with his first applicant for the pilot seat has a long story. He has a wife whose story is important as well. This passage covers conversation of general, getting acquainted subjects. It progresses to a short flight that involved teaching to achieve "smoothe" touchdowns for the comfort of ill or injured patients arrival at hospitals, etc. for urgent care. The next encounter is a brawl with a thug at the local grocery store. This is exciting, and blow by blow narrative is action-packed! The new pilot's lady and other women visit, and soon wedding plans are forming. The tale continues when an attractive lady comes into Mike's office to apply for a pilot's position. She is a vibrant and robust character with issues; some immediate and others such as lodging, car parking, clothes. These are minor, and the significant problems are exciting, surprising, impressive and unusual. vi Three guys from New Jersey came into the office. They were expected and looking to qualify for a job with Angel Flight. One of them is noticeably causing suspicion and distrust at first impressions. That was the correct impression for this guy. There was a call for a copilot, and an available part-time pilot from Wyoming was hired for a one-time flight. The Police of Chief in The Dalles is a Native American and has personality and fairness in his enforcement of legal statutes and sometimes affording competent counsel to wayward souls who go astray. Along the way, many shadowy characters and policemen have encounters of different degrees and behaviors. In Chicago and in Atlantic City are battles of evil guy/right guy eye-opening events. Crime does not pay. Romance, of course, is not missing from this book by any means, and there is no need to search for the scenes, although not to be alarmed by graphic explanations. Many reverent scenes occur and are heartwarming and are good examples for any ready to notice. Brotherly love and counting are blessings are only two of many. The emergency episode of a man injured by a bull is unique. He is a tough rancher and doesn't want sedation or any pampering. The part-time pilot was also a rancher, and a business deal was agreed by the two that will be a point of information to the average person. This copilot also shows a profound talent, none of which, his family nor friends were aware of. A rickety truck parks in front of The Dalles police chief's office and a black confident, but obviously troubled young woman explains she is need of a job and has a son and mother for whom she is responsible. This episode is, again, human interest and does turn out for the best. The plot thickens, and things begin to be apparent that dangerous criminal activity is about to be exposed, and the case can be closed. Before and after the incidents and events there are picnics, casino activity, hand to hand contact of criminal vs. police, devotional scenes, and rarely does a problematic situation go unsolved. The ending is quite violent but justified.

In 1972, two pilots--one a federal career engineer, the other the pastor of a prominent church in Washington, D.C.--discovered a common passion for flying airplanes and serving people. One day over lunch, the men conceived a flight plan, one that would undergo many changes before becoming Angel Flight Mid-Atlantic, as it is known today. Ed Boyer of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services and Dr. Louis Evans, pastor of the National Presbyterian Church, discussed how to pool their interests and qualifications. From its beginnings as a charitable shuttle service for religious leaders and dignitaries, to full-scale charitable air ambulance operations, to Angel Flights for ambulatory patients, the initial vision has grown into a network of over 1,500 volunteer pilots in the Mid-Atlantic region who use their private planes to fly people in need to specialized treatment. Angel Flight coordinates missions of mercy from its offices in Virginia Beach, helping patients to find "the shortest distance between home and hope."
