What is this?
Optical character recognition (OCR) is an automated process that converts a digital image containing numbers and letters into computer-readable numbers and letters. The search engine used on this web site searches OCR-generated text for the word or phrase you are looking for. Please note that OCR is not 100 percent accurate. If the original image is blurry, has extraneous marks, or contains ornate font styles or very small text, the OCR process will produce nonsense characters, extraneous spaces, and other errors, such as those you may see on this page. In addition, the OCR process cannot interpret images and may ignore them or render them as strings of nonsense characters. Despite these drawbacks, OCR remains a powerful tool for making newspaper pages accessible by searching.

Excerpt from Path of Honor By Diana Pharaoh Francis “Reisil rem em bered the w izard circle, the tremendous surge o f power, of knowing she could call lightning. The blistering power that had filled her then, the glorious, rich fullness when she had grown back Reimon’s arm in that little grass hut on the Vorshtar plain. That power could pinch out the plague like a blown candle. But she didn't have it anymore. Maybe she never did. Then the Lady’s hand had guided her. That hand was gone now. Reisil stopped, staring around her at the bodies scattered like tortured dolls. Most people, the ones who didn t blame her, said the wizards had done this. And she knew, down to the soles of her feet, that it was true. The plague suited the wizards’ style down to the ground. It did their dirty work fo r them, efficiently, with no wasted energy. They will pay, Reisil prom ised 'herself■'!'will make-the nr p a y .::. ” *“ • Diana Pharaoh Francis, the author of the novels Path of Fate, Path of Honor, and the work in progress, Path of Blood. Path of Honor, published by Roc Mass Market Paperbacks, will be available at bookstores early December. Meet the author and purchase your copy at the downtown Dillon Bookstore, December 10 between the hours of 6pm and 8pm. )
