The harrowing saga of the last of a loving family cursed over the years by a progressively destructive community legend or by a piece of land in the Missouri Ozarks that is haunted by some evil first revealed through a childhood vision. The Legend of the Albino Farm is a horror story turned inside out. What if a thriving family were saddled with an unshakable spook tale? And what if that lore cursed them with an unending whirlwind of destruction from thrill seekers, partiers, bikers, and goths? Hettienne Sheehy is about to inherit this devouring legacy. Last child to bear a once golden name, she is heiress to a sprawling farm in the Missouri Ozarks. During summer, childhood idylls in the late 1940s, Hettienne has foreseen all this apocalyptic fury in frightening, mystifying visions. Haunted by a whirling augury, by a hurtful spook tale, and by a property that seems to doom all who would dare own it, in the end, Hettienne will risk everything to save the family she truly loves. The legend has haunted two generations of Sheehys and marred all memory of the family's glory days. Worse, this spooky lore now draws revelers, druggies, motorcycle gangs, hippies, and later goths to trample the land, set bonfires, and vandalize its structures, all while Hettienne's aged aunts cling to privacy, sanity, and a rapidly deteriorating 13-room mansion. From her youth, throughout her marriage and her rearing of her children, the curse of the Sheehys drags at her and her family like a vortex. Haunted by a whirling augury, by a hurtful spook tale, and by a relentlessly judgmental Ozarks city, in the end, Hettienne believes she must make decisions that might compromise her family's financial security but will severe them from an ever more dangerous legacy. 1.

THE TRUE STORY OF HOW ONE MAN OVERCAME HIS DEMONS AND UNLEASHED HIS CREATIVITY -- IN A FASCIST JAIL It's 1972. William is a creative boy in a dead-end job, his dream of becoming an artist fading fast. So when his best friend hatches a plan to fund a year's painting in Morocco, William leaps at the chance. The only problem is, first he has to get through Franco's fascist Spain with a suitcase of drugs. Like most things in William's life, the plan goes wrong and he is thrown into the notorious Modelo jail in Barcelona. Abandoned by friends and family, unable to speak the language, surrounded by hardened criminals, lost hippies and brutal prison guards and with no idea when, if ever, he will be released, he quickly spirals into despair. It is only when he begins to secretly draw his visions and nightmares that William starts to deal with his remorse and self-hatred. But it is the facing-up to long-repressed childhood memories of abuse, neglect and poverty that ultimately leads to his redemption ... and freedom.
