For sixteen centuries the Order of Pythia has awaited the reappearance of the ancient oracle of sacred knowledge at Delphi. An earthquake, rending the earth beneath the ruins, has now heralded her return. Dorian Belecamus, a beautiful and bewitching archaeology professor, sees an opportunity to do more than dig into the past: this is her chance to seize control of her country’s future - by becoming the Oracle of Delphi! And she’s found just the man to help her consummate her scheme. He’s brash, he’s reckless, and he’s fallen under her spell. His name: Indiana Jones. Their adventure spans the globe from Chicago to Paris to Greece, where, bullwhip in hand, Indy descends into the bottomless pit of the serpent god and finds a sacred stone that holds the key to the oracle’s prophecies. But Dorian has designed an even more sinister fate for young Indy: she means to make him her lover, her priest, and her pawn in a plot to kill the king. Will Indy find the source of Pythia’s powers - or will he find himself sacrificed at Dorian’s altar, a victim of her deadly ambition and desire? Matt Bomhoff called this book “a good, classic, old-fashioned adventure story.”
(Having barely survived a hair-raising archaeological dig ...)
Having barely survived a hair-raising archaeological dig in Tikal, Guatemala, Indiana Jones has returned to New York just in time to get caught up in a controversy. The mysterious writings of Colonel Percy Fawcett, a missing British explorer, have turned up, and what they describe could revolutionize history - and make or break several scientific reputations. For Percy paints a tantalizing picture of a lost city in the Brazilian jungle, and a mythical redheaded race who may be the descendants of ancient Celtic Druids. No one loves mystery or adventure more than Indiana Jones. So with his trusty bullwhip in hand and the lovely Deirdre Campbell firmly in tow, he sets out for the wilds of the Amazon. But Indy has more enemies than he knows, including a bunch of hard-nosed thugs and a cannibalistic Indian tribe that is out to make him instant history. And if he survives what they throw in his path, there’s still the fabled city itself... where the inhabitants practice the magic of the “seven veils” and no one leaves alive!
(Lost on the labyrinth of a Paleolithic cavern complex, In...)
Lost on the labyrinth of a Paleolithic cavern complex, Indy Jones encounters references to a mythological beast that may have existed twenty-thousand years ago - and five years later Dr. Jones confronts the legend again, and the woman who is hoping to find the fabled unicorn's horn. But so is someone else from Indy's past, a man who will stop at nothing to obtain the ancient relic. Some say the unicorn's horn came from an animal made extinct by the Great Flood. Others say the horn is an effective antidote to poison and a mystical relic. Indy discovers that the horn's power is less than benevolent, and the same could be said about the intentions of a certain beautiful art historian.
(Determined to retrieve the unicorn horn he cast into a po...)
Determined to retrieve the unicorn horn he cast into a portal in the earth, Indiana Jones, along with Marcus Brody, journeys from Easter Island to the gateway of the Interior World.

Prophecy Rock - winner of the Edgar Allan Poe Award. In Prophecy Rock, Rob MacGregor, a New York Times bestselling author, weaves elements of Hopi mythology with modern police work to create a mystery that readers of all ages won't be able to put down. “MacGregor has woven a credible mystery bound together with insights into the Hopi culture and the problems faced by a young man of mixed heritage,” wrote Joanne Johnson in Voice of Youth Advocates. Heather McCammond-Watts, in the Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books, compared Prophecy Rock with the work of Toni Morrison, and said that “as a crime novel, the book offers changes in viewpoints... shifting suspicions, and well-concealed evidence that create a realistic atmosphere.”
(In Hawk Moon, the sequel to Prophecy Rock, Will has retur...)
In Hawk Moon, the sequel to Prophecy Rock, Will has returned to his home in Aspen, Colorado, where he is his high school’s star running back and soon a suspect in the murder of his girlfriend Myra. There is no body, but there is Will’s knife with traces of her blood on the blade and of a designer drug on its hilt. Will receives guidance from a Hopi spirit and help from his father and from Corey, an admirer who is also an expert with computers. Florence H. Munat wrote in Voice of Youth Advocates that “the inclusion of football game scenes, information about Hopi culture, computer hacking, and the operation of a designer drug ring in toney Aspen, should all pique reader interest... Although the book is a sequel, it stands alone.” School Library Journal contributor Joel Shoemaker felt MacGregor’s portrayal of the computer nerds and the e-world they inhabit to be “adept” and wrote that the “interesting, believable teen and adult characters and fast-paced action make this novel a real bridge to adult murder mysteries.”

Over the past few decades, meditation has evolved from a fringe practice to a mainstream stress-reduction technique that your family doctor might recommend. But how do you enter the doorway to a meditation practice if you don’t have time to join a class? You begin by taking up a solo practice, squeezing in five to twenty minutes here and there. However, meditating on your own tends to leave unanswered the daunting question of how you quiet your mind. That’s where Jewel in the Lotus: Meditation for Busy Minds will help. The book provides all that is needed to begin a practice in an easy-to-read style with a variety of techniques as well as anecdotes from the author’s years of practice and teaching. Readers will appreciate the spiritual, but non-dogmatic, non-religious style that pervades the author’s teachings.

MacGregor’s The Ghost Tribe is based on the television series Peter Benchley’s Amazon. The book opens in 1627, with the ship Seaflower being driven off course toward South America. The small group of Europeans is forced to learn survival in the jungle and from the native inhabitants who would kill them to protect their paradise. The Ghost Tribe is the first in a series of three planned books.
(As humanity’s collective consciousness evolves and expand...)
As humanity’s collective consciousness evolves and expands, more of us are experiencing phenomena - voices no one else hears, visions no one else sees, intense intuitive feelings that presage the future or enable us to telepathically connect to loved ones. Some of us communicate with the dead, see interdimensional beings, claim to have been abducted by aliens. And some of us experience synchronicities that defy the odds. Are we outliers? Or are we, as a growing number of psychiatrists, scientists, and researchers now recognize, tapping into a matrix of reality far more vast and complex than what science currently recognizes?
Rob MacGregor enrolled at the University of Minnesota in the late 1960s, planning to study archaeology, but he ended up majoring in journalism.
Over the next dozen years after graduating, Rob worked as a reporter and editor on various publications from weekly to daily newspapers. However, he never gave up his interest in ancient civilizations and between jobs and on vacations he explored archaeological sites in Mexico, Central and South America, Europe and North Africa. Those experiences would later come in handy when Rob wrote six original Indiana Jones novels as well as the adaptation of Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade for LucasFilm and Bantam Books.
Rob turned to full-time freelance writing after he met Trish MacGregor. They quit their jobs, got married and took off to South America – Chile and Ecuador. Back home, they wrote magazine articles and scratched out a living while working on novels. Within a couple of years, they were both published authors. After finishing Rob's first novel, ''Crystal Skull,'' magic happened and he became part of the Indiana Jones saga. He adapted the script for ''Indiana Jones'' and ''the Last Crusade,'' which became a New York Times bestseller, and went on to write half a dozen more Indiana Jones novels.
After finishing his seventh Indy novel, Rob studied shamanism through the Four Winds Society. As a result, he wrote a young adult Native America mystery series, including: ''Prophecy Rock,'' which won the Edgar Allan Poe award for mystery writing in 1996 and ''Hawk Moon,'' which was a finalist for the same award the following year. Others in the series include ''Double Heart'' and ''Time Catcher.''
In addition, Rob co-authored astrology books with Trish under the name Sydney Omarr for ten years. He also teaches yoga, based on his own system called Astro-Yoga.
