socialist Christian of the day: St. Ambrose

"Nature furnishes its wealth to all men in common. God beneficently has created all things that their endowment be common to all living beings, and that the earth became the common property of all ... Only unjust usurpation has created the right of private property." – St. Ambrose

  1. This is completely off topic. I've whichever of Emma's books I've been able to find but wasn't familiar with your work until I read "Welcome to Bordertown." I stayed up until it was live on Amazon for Kindle and was well into it before the Dead Tree Book lovers made it to a bookstore the next morning. Love my Kindle. This week I've read "Elsewhere" and "Nevernever." "Shadow Unit" has made me cry at least once per season & I'm not a crier. I just bought the rest of the books available for Kindle and I'll have them done in no time. I try to stay away from paperbacks because of my arthritis plus with the Kindle I can adjust the print size for all night reads. Now I need you to make "Dogtown" available for the Kindle plus your other backlist books and please write more. I love your books
