Terry Pratchett - Stephen Briggs - The Discworld Mapp
They said it couldn't be done. Well, it has been done, proving them wrong once again. After years of research, cunningly contrived in as many minutes, the Discworld has its map. It takes full account of the historic and much documented expeditions of the Discworld's feted (or at least fated) explorers: General Sir Roderick Purdeigh, Lars Larsnephew, Llamedos Jones, Lady Alice Venturi, Ponce da Quirm and, of course, Venter Borass. Now travellers on this circular world can see it all: from Klatch to the Ramtops, from Cori Celesti to the Circle Sea, from Genua to Bhangbhangduc. The great cities of Hunghung, Pseudopolis, Al Khali and, of course, Ankh-Morpork are placed with loving care upon this world which is carried through space by Great A'Tuin.

Marilyn Talia Dahl - The Hollow Dolls
Men are immediately hooked on the sexual intensity of disordered dark child Melanie Willow and Mel herself. Two together, unable to love, they share a borderline personality in a single 19-year-old body. Melanie teeter-totters with Winnie, her bestie with benefits in a drugged delusional week of self-harm. A rape. And finally, suicide attempts. In a bid to save themselves the girls begin to write a memoir together just as they embark on a special journey... It is to the Man-Rabbit’s island in a shared psychosis (Folie à Deux) where they are sent on a mission of revenge: Eliminate predators of young girls. The Man-Rabbit also demands that in order to succeed they must learn to love. Melanie and Winnie know that their love is only a game; a borrowed phantom melancholy complete with Winnie’s crocodile tears, and Melanie’s dominant affectations of her dark princess. Unable to love or feel, they are Hollow Dolls. And so the struggle begins; a journey from their child-like masquerade of love to a new world of real love. The girls end up in the notorious Downtown Eastside of Vancouver, Canada where Melanie is searching for her birth father. Melanie needs desperately to find out what happened in her youth, but at the same time everything is catching up—the police, the demands of her mission with the Man-Rabbit, and her fracturing psyche. Real love tempts The Hollow Dolls, mind and body. They refuse to believe anything short of absolute, and so they test love. Through the looking glass, Melanie and Winnie dance on psychic tenterhooks in a realm filled with passion. Their mission of murder and vengeance mingles with their unquenchable desire as they explore domination and submission together and with others. An ancestral aching for blood sport grows in Winnie, awakening her true self. Melanie watches her dark blood princess and the gateway to real love opens ever so slowly. And as though one needed to delve into flesh itself to dissect and prove love, Melanie and Winnie find themselves in the Blood Sister Parlor Plains, where Love holds court and the greatest wishes of human kind are granted. ____________________________ "I found your book after reading Invisible Monsters by Palahniuk and wanting something to top that, when I started reading you I just thought of that saying, about be careful what you wish for, cause I found it, thanks ^.~ xxxx ~ Amarie Daisyjaw daisyjaw.com "It's a dangerous thing for an author to mine her own life for fiction… Dahl does need to learn to cut parts of herself out. I love the title. "The Hollow Dolls." The name itself evokes a sense of transgressive surrealism that is embodied in the prose of its author. Right from word one… "Naked. Nineteen. Under the London sky." ~ Allen Taylor
