What is true vision?

Electric cars and solar cells, stock markets and mobile phones, coffee and cargo ships, footsteps on the moon and the half-life of songs. 

What they all have in common might surprise you.

The Visionary drives through a cascading commentary on the nature of time, light, and the human capacity for vision, exhorting us to re-imagine and reconfigure the systems and habits that have rendered us completely blind to our own potential.

An unrelenting fusion of fiction and real life, this inspirational critique of modern Western society is at once poetic and raw. The Visionary will make you "think different."

Includes a special section on real-life grassroots visionaries.

Can a patient's silence kill the doctor?

A respected physician in Cordoba, Spain, receives a mysterious phone call—a request to attend to the ailing daughter of a wealthy but secretive family in Madrid.  What seems to be a routine house call quickly turns into a disturbing labyrinth of intrigue and mystery, and a fight for the girl’s life.

Verse in Arabic was named a finalist in the 2013 Press 53 Open Awards.

Birgitte Rasine's mysterious Verse in Arabic pulled me in and held me from beginning to end. Beautifully written, this story continues to demonstrate that Rasine is an uncommonly gifted writer.
