Maria Dahvana Headley - Queen of Kings
There’s more than one path to immortality… QUEEN OF KINGS Maria Dahvana Headley A thrilling, chilling reimagining of the story of the most famous woman in history. Once there was a queen of Egypt…a queen who became through magic something else… The year is 30 BC. Octavian Caesar and his massed legions are poised to enter Alexandria. A messenger informs Egypt’s queen, Cleopatra, that her beloved Mark Antony has died by his own hand. Desperate to save her kingdom, resurrect her husband and protect all she holds dear, Cleopatra turns to the gods for help. Ignoring the warnings of those around her, she summons Sekhmet, goddess of death and destruction, and strikes a mortal bargain. And not even the wisest of Egypt’s scholar could have predicted what would follow… For, in return for Antony’s soul, Sekhmet demands something in return: Cleopatra herself. And so Egypt’s queen is possessed. She becomes an immortal, shape-shifting, not-quite-human manifestation of a deity who seeks to destroy the world. Fighting to preserve something of her humanity, Cleopatra pursues Octavian back to Rome: she desires revenge, she yearns for her children…and she craves human blood. It is a journey that will take her from the tombs of the Pharaohs to the great amphitheatres of imperial Rome and on, to Hell itself where, it seems, the fate of the world will finally be decided. Blending authentic historical fiction and the darkest of fantasy, Queen of Kings is a spectacular and spellbinding feat of the imagination that fans of Neil Gaiman, Diana Gabaldon, George R.R. Martin, Patricia Briggs, Philippa Gregory, and Ridley Scott's Gladiator won’t want to miss.
Maria Dahvana Headley - The Mere Wife
From the perspective of those who live in Herot Hall, the suburb is a paradise. Picket fences divide buildings―high and gabled―and the community is entirely self-sustaining. Each house has its own fireplace, each fireplace is fitted with a container of lighter fluid, and outside―in lawns and on playgrounds―wildflowers seed themselves in neat rows. But for those who live surreptitiously along Herot Hall’s periphery, the subdivision is a fortress guarded by an intense network of gates, surveillance cameras, and motion-activated lights. For Willa, the wife of Roger Herot (heir of Herot Hall), life moves at a charmingly slow pace. She flits between mommy groups, playdates, cocktail hour, and dinner parties, always with her son, Dylan, in tow. Meanwhile, in a cave in the mountains just beyond the limits of Herot Hall lives Gren, short for Grendel, as well as his mother, Dana, a former soldier who gave birth as if by chance. Dana didn’t want Gren, didn’t plan Gren, and doesn’t know how she got Gren, but when she returned from war, there he was. When Gren, unaware of the borders erected to keep him at bay, ventures into Herot Hall and runs off with Dylan, Dana’s and Willa’s worlds collide.
Paul Harrison - Elements of Pantheism
Do you feel a deep sense of belonging and wonder in a forest or by the ocean? Are you speechless with awe when you see the Milky Way strewn with stars? Do you find it hard to conceive of a divinity separate from the beauty of nature or the power of the universe? Then you are probably a pantheist. The heart of Pantheism is reverence for Nature and the Universe. It offers a vibrant alternative to theism and atheism, with a joyful and accepting approach to life on this earth. Pantheism dates back to the very first Greek philosophers, and was the religious viewpoint of many famous thinkers and artists, including Marcus Aurelius, Spinoza, Wordsworth, Whitman, Emerson, Thoreau, Einstein, and Frank Lloyd Wright. The dominant religious approach of the nineteenth century, pantheism is seeing a modern revival as the underlying world view of the environmental movement, of leading scientists, and of nature-revering paganism. This accessible, clear and authoritative handbook is the only available introduction to the history, theory and practice of Pantheism.
Silvia Moreno-Garcia - Gods of Jade and Shadow
The Jazz Age is in full swing, but Casiopea Tun is too busy cleaning the floors of her wealthy grandfather’s house to listen to any fast tunes. Nevertheless, she dreams of a life far from her dusty small town in southern Mexico. A life she can call her own. Yet this new life seems as distant as the stars, until the day she finds a curious wooden box in her grandfather’s room. She opens it—and accidentally frees the spirit of the Mayan god of death, who requests her help in recovering his throne from his treacherous brother. Failure will mean Casiopea’s demise, but success could make her dreams come true. In the company of the strangely alluring god and armed with her wits, Casiopea begins an adventure that will take her on a cross-country odyssey, from the jungles of Yucatán to the bright lights of Mexico City—and deep into the darkness of the Mayan underworld.
Sherrilyn Kenyon - Fantasy Lover
Being trapped in a bedroom with a woman is a grand thing. Being trapped in hundreds of bedrooms over two thousand years isn't. And being cursed into a book as a love-slave for eternity can ruin even a Spartan warrior's day. As a love-slave, I know everything about women. How to touch them, how to savor them, and most of all, how to pleasure them. But when I was summoned to fulfill Grace Alexander's sexual fantasies, I found the first woman in history who saw me as a man with a tormented past. She alone bothered to take me out of the bedroom and into the world. She taught me to love again. But I wasn't born to know love. I was cursed to walk eternity alone. As an ancient Greek general, I had long ago accepted my sentence. Yet now I have found Grace-- the one thing my wounded heart cannot survive without. Sure, love can heal all wounds, but can it break a two-thousand-year-old curse?
Adrienne Woods - Light
Mr. Sandman, send me a dream, ta da da da…..Seventeen year old Chastity Blake knows the Sandman is just a silly children’s story parents tell their children to get them to sleep.

A sand that has the power to send anyone it touches into a deep, sound sleep. Fearing she had lost her mind, Chastity soon discovers the shocking truth of her heritage – she is a Dream Caster. Chastity was never supposed to be raised on the Domain, or what humans call Earth and she is forced to return to her true birth place, Revera – the world of Dreams. However, in Revera there is no balance between good, the Light Casters, and darkness, the Shadow Casters, and Chastity is caught square in the middle. She soon learns that there is no place for anyone containing both the light and the darkness within them, and the shocking truth that if anyone in Revera ever discovered her shadow self, Chastity would be thrown into the Oblivion – the world of Nightmares. Dreams are always more than they seem, and this time Chastity is going to discover just how different they can be.

Während einer Schlacht gegen die verfeindeten Riki glaubt sie zu träumen. Denn Eelyn sieht ihren totgeglaubten Bruder – wie er an der Seite eines kühnen Riki kämpft. Weder ein Pfeil im Arm noch ein Schwerthieb könnte Eelyn so schwer treffen wie der Verrat ihres Bruders. Sie selbst würde sich niemals mit dem Feind verbünden. Auch nicht wenn sie sich verliebt. Und selbst dann nicht wenn es den Untergang der Clans bedeutet. Oder?

No le queda otra alternativa que confiar en Fiske, el amigo de su hermano, que la considera una amenaza.

Imre Madách - İnsanın trajedisi
Taşralı bir Macar soylusu l859 yılının l7 şubatında eline tüy kalemini alıp, insanın ve insanlığın varlığının anlamını, savaşımları, acıları, başarıları ve yenilgileriyle tüm tarihinin anlamını, amacını, ta yaradılıştan başlayarak sisli ufuklarda kaybolan uzak geleceğe değin başından sonuna kadar düşünerek, akıllara durgunluk verecek bir tempoyla, bir yıldan biraz fazla bir süre içinde, tam onyedi tüy kalemi eskiterek bu manzum dramı yazdı. 1860 yılının 26 martında macar edebiyatının en tanınmış ve aynı zamanda en tartışmalı yapıtlarından biri, "İnsanın Trajedisi" doğdu. Bu yapıtı kimileri anlamsız, saçma bulur; kimileri önemi açısından Goethe ve Dante'nin büyük manzum dramlarına benzetir; kimilerine göre ise her iki görüşte de bir ölçüde gerçek payı vardır. Dramın mekânı dünyamız, hatta bütün kâinattır. Konusu insanlığın tarihi. Zamanı ise geçmiş ve gelecek. Dramın başında, "Büyük eser bitti, tamam ; dönüyor çarklar dinleniyor yaradan" sözleriyle yaradılışın sona erdiğini duyuran Rab, övgüler düzen meleklerinin şenliklerini seyrediyor. Bu havaya katılmayan tek biri var, o da İblis. Rabbın zıddı, inkârın ruhu olan şeytan, Tanrının eserinin mükemmellikten ne kadar uzak olduğunu kanıtlamak için, kendi payına düşenin, kendi hakkının, ışığa karşı gölgenin de var olması hakkının ona verilmesini ister ve Adem ile Havvayı aldatmakta kullanacağı bir karış toprakla cennetin yasaklanmış iki ağacını Tanrıdan alır. Madách "İnsanın Trajedisi" ni bitirirken, sonuç çıkarmayı da ihmal etmiyor. Son sahnede Tanrının, insanın mücadelesinin anlamını anlatan sözlerini sonuç olarak yorumlayabiliriz. Ama okuyucunun çıkaracağı sonuç gene de yazarınkinden farklı olabilir. Kaldı ki, Trajedi'nin son sahnesinin yorumu, yapıtın doğuşunun üstünden geçen 130 yılı aşkın bir süredir yazılmış yüzlerce, binlerce sayfalık yorumların ancak bir tanesidir.
Rachel Hauck - A menyasszonyi ruha
Négy menyasszony. Egy ruha. A hit, a megváltás és az örökéletű szerelem története. Charlotte-nak elegáns menyasszonyi ruha butikja van az alabamai Birminghamben. Különleges tehetsége van ahhoz, hogy menyasszonyokat öltöztessen fel a nagy napra. És ezt őszinte szenvedéllyel teszi. De közeledik a saját esküvőjének a napja, és mégsem találja a tökéletes ruhát..., és miért nem érzi biztosnak magát abban, hogy hozzá akar menni Timhez? Ekkor fedez fel egy régi menyasszonyi ruhát az egyik birtokon rendezett jótékonysági árverésen egy ütött-kopott ládában. A ruha vadonatújnak látszik, csupa csillogó selyem és gyöngy, kézzel varrt, a fazonja időtálló. De honnan származik? Ki viselte? Ki forrasztotta le a zárat, ki dugta egy katona dögcéduláját a kis erszénybe, ami mellette feküdt? Ki hagyta a pincében egy tízéves kislány számára? És ki a lila mellényes titokzatos férfi, aki azt állítja, hogy a ruhát "megváltották"? Charlotte a ruha történetét kutatja, keresi, ki lehet az új menyasszony, aki viselhetné, és eleinte a kialvóban lévő szerelmi életéről akarja ezzel elterelni a figyelmét. De a történet önálló életet kel, ahogy megismeri a lányokat, akik a ruhát viselték. 1912-ből Emilyt. 1939-ből Mary Grace-t. 1968-ból Hillaryt. Mindhármuk története tele van ígéretekkel, fájdalommal és sorsszerűséggel. És mind valami páratlant osztanak meg, hiszen a gyönyörű százéves ruhába aranyszállal beleszőtték az igazságot Charlotte múltjáról, a bátorság és hit erejéről, az igaz szerelem megtalálásának örök szépségéről.
John Bowker - The meanings of death
In The Meanings of Death, John Bowker offers a major contribution to debates about the value of death and its place in both Western and Eastern religions. Examining the themes of friendship and sacrifice in the world's major religions, Bowker argues that there are points of vital contact with secular understandings of death, and that religious and secular attitudes can support and reinforce one another. An affirmative recovery of the value of death is important in our response to bereavement, and in the treatment of the terminally ill. By indicating how value can be maintained at the limit of life, without a search for illusory compensation in an afterlife beyond it, Bowker enriches our experience and understanding of the 'final question' in a way which is always sensitive and often moving.
Ildefonso Falcones - Cathedral of the Sea
A young serf in fourteenth century Spain, Arnau is on the run from his feudal lord. Through famine, plague and thwarted love he struggles to earn his freedom in the shadow of the mighty Cathedral of the Sea: a magnificent church being bulit by the humblest citizens of the city. Arnau's fortunes begin to turn when King Pedro makes him a baron in reward for his courage in battle. But his new-found wealth excites the jealousy of his friends, who begin to plot against him, with devastating consequences.
Guo Xiaoting - Adventures of the Mad Monk Ji Gong
Follow the brilliant and hilarious adventures of a mad Zen Buddhist monk who rose from humble beginnings to become one of China's greatest folk heroes! Ji Gong studied at the great Ling Yin monastery, an immense temple that still ranges up the steep hills above Hangzhou, near Shanghai. The Chan (Zen) Buddhist masters of the temple tried to instruct Ji Gong in the spartan practices of their sect, but the young monk, following in the footsteps of other great ne'er-do-wells, distinguished himself mainly by getting expelled. He left the monastery, became a wanderer with hardly a proper piece of clothing to wear, and achieved great renown—in seedy wine shops and drinking establishments! This could have been where Ji Gong's story ended. But his unorthodox style of Buddhism soon made him a hero for popular storytellers of the Song dynasty era. Audiences delighted in tales where the mad old monk ignored—or even mocked—authority, defied common sense, never neglected the wine, yet still managed to save the day. Ji Gong remains popular in China even today, where he regularly appears as the wise old drunken fool in movies and TV shows. In Adventures of the Mad Monk Ji Gong, you'll read how he has a rogue's knack for exposing the corrupt and criminal while still pursuing the twin delights of enlightenment and intoxication. This literary classic of a traveling martial arts master, fighting evil and righting wrongs, will entertain Western readers of all ages!

Sherrilyn Kenyon - Kiss of the Night
What do you get when you have one immortal Viking warrior no one can remember five minutes after he leaves their presence, a princess on the run for her life, and one seriously annoyed demigod? Basically, you get my life. It started out simple enough. One night I went to save a woman in trouble. The next thing I knew, the doorway to hell had opened and out stepped Daimons--vampires the likes of which I'd never seen before. Led by the son of Apollo, they are out to end the curse that has banished them all to darkness. The only problem with that is they have to kill Cassandra Peters to do it and if she dies, so dies the sun, the earth and all who dwell here. Life's just a bowl full of cherries, ain't it? Brought together by fate, it's now my job to protect a daughter of the very race I have been hunting for centuries. Neither of us dares to trust the other. But she is the only one who remembers me... More than that, with her courage and strength, she is the only one who has ever touched a heart that I thought had died centuries ago. The only way for a Dark-Hunter to regain his soul is through the love of a woman. But what happens when that woman isn't exactly human?
Octavio Paz - The Monkey Grammarian
Hanumān, the red-faced monkey chief and ninth grammarian of Hindu mythology, is the protagonist of this dazzling narrative--a mind-journey to the temple city of Galta in India and the occasion for Octavio Paz, the celebrated Mexican poet and essayist, to explore the origin of language, the nature of naming and knowing, time and reality, and fixity and decay. * Selected Review: The very concept of grammar - a system in which language can be fixed, structured and therefore transformed - is one of the great achievements of Indian culture. In the past 50 years philosophers and linguists have devoted enormous intellectual energies to the investigation of how the concept was developed among the thinkers of ancient India, for whom the idea became a central problem in their philosophical tradition. Was language, our faculty for naming objects, given by God or did man invent it, either on his own or with powers borrowed from the divine realm? Through a species of time-space journey akin to Hanuman's, Octavio Paz explores this dilemma: ''What is language made of,'' he asks, ''and most important of all, is it already made, or is it something that is perpetually in the making?'' (New York Times) * About the Author: Octavio Paz (1914-1998) was born in Mexico City. He wrote many volumes of poetry, as well as a prolific body of remarkable works of nonﬁction on subjects as varied as poetics, literary and art criticism, politics, culture, and Mexican history. He was awarded the Jerusalem Prize in 1977, the Cervantes Prize in 1981, and the Neustadt Prize in 1982. He received the German Peace Prize for his political work, and finally, the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1990. About the Translator: Helen Lane was the preeminent translator of French, Spanish, Portuguese, and Italian fiction. Among the long list of authors she translated are Augusto Roa Bastos, Jorge Amado, Luisa Valenzuela, Mario Vargas Llosa, Marguerite Duras, Nélinda Piñon, and Curzio Malaparte.
Lackfi János - Van tüzed?
Neves kortárs írónk, költőnk jelen kötete tematikus elv szerint válogat régi és új versek közül. Az alcím témamegjelölése bátor, sőt, provokatív gesztus egy kortárs szerzőtől: hiszen azt nyilvánítja ki ezzel, hogy az „istenes vers” nem valami ósdi irodalomtörténeti fogalom, hanem ma is élő beszédmód illetve érvényes tematikus-műfaji kategória. Természetesen ahhoz, hogy valóban élő és érvényes lehessen, a műfajt meg kell újítani: erre a szép és nehéz feladatra vállalkozik ez a kötet, amely elsősorban attól lesz izgalmas olvasmány, hogy több szinten is kizökkenti az olvasót az elvárásaiból – úgy is mondhatnánk, hogy felébreszti, sőt, időnként provokálja, hecceli, nagyobb tudatosságra serkentgeti. A versek hangja egyszerre ironikus és meghitt; személyes, benső tapasztalatot közvetít, mégis mindenkihez szól.
