Eduarda Aivara dzejoļu krājums “Parādības” ir dzejnieka devītais krājums, kurā apkopoti un sakārtoti pēdējo piecu gadu laikā tapušie dzejoļi. Laiks nestāv uz vietas. Dažs cilvēks sakrītas, dažs piebriest, dažs uzkumpst, dažs sportodams staltāks top. Vecās drānas vairs neder, un jāmeklē atkal no jauna. Dzejoļu krājums “Parādības” rāda, ka atkal ir izdevies atrast izteiksmi, kas der kā uzlieta. Dzejas forma netraucē, to pat it kā nemaz nemana, un lasītāju tieši apņem gan īsta brieduma skaidrība, gan joprojām jauneklīgā spēja ļauties brīnumiem, gan rimta dzīves nenovēršamā traģisma apjausma. Jānis Elsbergs Savukārt autors norāda: “”Parādībās” esmu ievērojis savu kompozīcijas principu, radot kulminācijas ar satura un māksliniecisko izteiksmes līdzekļu palīdzību. Arī šajā grāmatā būtisku vietu ieņem dzejoļi ar gariem virsrakstiem, mans jaunievedums. Šādas formas dzejoļiem nav analogu ne tikai šeit, bet arī, cik man zināms, citur pasaulē.”
Combining oral and visual history, this description of the Crimean War is compiled with the use of extracts from a considerable number of eye-witness accounts in the form of letters and diaries of soldiers, sailors, doctors, nurses, artists and reporters. They include views from all sides of the conflict - not only British, but French, Russian and Turkish. The war was the first to be photographed (by Roger Fenton and his colleagues), and the first to which professional war artists were assigned, and the book is extensively illustrated with images created by those photographers and artists.

"Somewhere In Between: The Hokey Pokey, Chocolate Cake and The Shared Death Experience" contains lighthearted true life stories from the author’s firsthand experience at the bedsides of family and friends who were dying. The primary story, “Aunt Jerry and Our Shared Death Experience” delves into the “in between” time when Lizzy’s aunt was dying. While interning as a hospice social worker, Lizzy received a dreaded phone call. Her aunt with end-stage Alzheimer’s Disease had suffered two seizures and a heart attack and was in the hospital. The next twelve days were a period of intense personal and spiritual growth as Lizzy experienced her dying aunt’s point of view in the ultimate form of empathy, known as a “Shared Death Experience.” This story is the most extensively documented Shared Death Experience to date, and details what it was like for Lizzy to receive psychic messages from spirits and her aunt, feel her aunt’s physical pain and see parts of her aunt’s life review. Throughout the story, Lizzy explores what it was like to have psychic abilities for the first time and the conflicts that arose when her family did not believe her. In other stories, Lizzy talks about doing the Hokey Pokey at the bedside and how she answers funny questions from patients such as, “Does Jesus like chocolate?” For such a serious topic as death and dying, Lizzy works hard to show the reader that there can be light and laughter even at the end of life.
