The thieves of Golgotha by D. S Lliteras( Book )
2 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 293 libraries worldwide
One event has had more influence on Western culture than almost any other in history: the crucifixion of Jesus of Nazareth. For 2,000 years the world has sought to better know, and to better understand, this man and His message. But what about the two criminals who were crucified alongside Jesus on that historic day? Who were these men who were tied by fate to one of history's most extraordinary teachers? Little or nothing has been told of their story. The Thieves of Golgotha is an intensely dramatic portrayal of these two felons and their final days: Nikos, a free-born Greek sold into Roman slavery by his father, and Azriel, an unrepentant, agnostic Galilean. In prison they meet Bartholomew, a follower of Jesus, whose unshakeable faith gives them pause, and Barabbas, the Judean who would be released so that Jesus could fulfill His destiny. From their prison window, they observe the trial with Pilate; and finally they meet Jesus on the crosses of Golgotha."--Publisher

Viet Man : a novel by D. S Lliteras( Book )
1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 213 libraries worldwide
Viet Man is about the transformation of a young man who enlisted in the Navy during the Viet Nam War, was trained as a hospital corpsman, was transferred into the Marine Corps, then sent to Viet Nam where he joined the elite First Recon. It is a first person narrative of alternating episodes experienced in the rear and in the bush. In the rear, Doc encounters a straw-haired Midwestern farm boy who shows him how to prepare a meal of long-rats and Loopie, a Puerto Rican from the Bronx who shares a guilt torn confession that borders on confabulation. In the bush, Doc experiences the terror of accidentally releasing a live grenade among his men, of rushing to rescue a wounded marine, and of sharing a quiet conversation in a bunker with Trang, a South Vietnamese soldier. After being assigned to the Recon Dive Team and attending the Navy diving school in the Philippines, he returns to Viet Nam where he engages in numerous combat dives and river operations. At the end of his tour, he is processed out of the military. And upon his return to his hometown as a veteran, he faces a jarring reception of insolence, indifference, and fragmented flashbacks

Half hidden by twilight : a novel by D. S Lliteras( Book )
2 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 36 libraries worldwide
With Half Hidden by Twilight, D.S. Lliteras completes the trilogy he began with In the Heart of Things and continued with Into the Ashes. Protagonist Llewellen, a Vietnam veteran who in the previous books suffered the loss of loved ones at home, here makes a gently triumphant discovery of his own capabilities and strengths. Up from the loneliness of dreary cold winter streets, he encounters death, hunger and loss, only to find wisdom and eventually real love. Lliteras, a combat veteran himself, has been deeply touched by Zen and unashamedly allows haikulike forms to rise as poignant codas at the end of chapters. With just six words, he pens profoundity: between space and time ... infinity arises. - The Virginian-Pilot, Robert Stanley Need
