Katie MacAlister - Jennifer Ashley - Minda Webber - Just One Sip
Quirky visions of vampire love animate this collection of three original novellas by paranormal romance authors MacAlister (author of the popular Dark Ones series), Ashley (Penelope and Prince Charming) and Webber (The Remarkable Miss Frankenstein). In Ashley's contribution, "Viva Las Vampires," journalist Meredith Black pursues an interview with sexy Vegas hotelier Stefan Erickson, owner of Transylvania Castle hotel. Little does she know he's a real vampire, with designs of his own for her. Webber's entry, "Lucy and the Crypt Casanova," cruises on the irascible charm of lead Lucy Campbell, a klutzy TV talk-show hostess who's forced to team up with her no-good ex, a sexy vampire detective, for the sake of a hot story: a murder investigation involving an incubus, a rare monster that feeds on youth like vamps feed on blood. The strongest of the three, for its over-the-top sexual antics and fully realized farcical world, is MacAlister's "Bring Out Your Dead," a story that unites an undead life coach for zombies (and part-time English tutor), Ysabelle Raleigh, with an anxious vampire who takes her for his long lost "Beloved." Despite a few missteps (MacAlister's French-mangling spirit guide, for instance, tends to irritate rather than amuse), this fast, funny and twisty collection proves good to the last drop.

James Joyce - A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man
Published in 1916, James Joyce's semiautobiographical tale of his alter ego, Stephen Dedalus, is a coming-of-age story like no other. A bold, innovative experiment with both language and structure, the work has exerted a lasting influence on the contemporary novel.'Joyce dissolved mechanism in literature as effectively as Einstein destroyed it in physics,' wrote Alfred Kazin. 'He showed that the material of fiction could rest upon as tense a distribution and as delicate a balance of its parts as any poem. Joyce's passion for form, in fact, is the secret of his progress as a novelist. He sought to bring the largest possible quantity of human life under the discipline of the observing mind, and the mark of his success is that he gave an epic form to what remains invisible to most novelists.... Joyce means many things to different people; for me his importance has always been primarily a moral one. He was, perhaps, the last man in Europe who wrote as if art were worth a human life.... By living for his art he may yet have given others a belief in art worth living for.'

Salamon Gábor - Huron's Cross Quote 1000
Learning English is fun...? Learning English is hard work...? Tulajdonképpen mindegy, mert példamondatnak mindkettő kiválló... és a kettő együtt a Huron-sorozat lényege: angolul tanulni kemény munka, és mint minden ilyen, roppant élvezetes. Ráadásul egyedül is lehet csinálni (tényleg!), meg kiköltözni sem kell hozzá. A sorozat többi darabjához hasonlóan, a Huron’s Cross Quotes is elsősorban azoknak készült, akik önállóan (is) tanulják az angolt. Mindenkinek, aki tanár nélkül is boldogulni szeretne, vagy éppen plusz gyakorlásra és segítségre vágyik az iskolai, tanfolyami órákon kívül. Fordítani nehéz… a Huron’s Cross Quotes arra való, hogy gyakorold az „oda-vissza” fordítást. Mire végigélvezed a HUCQ több mint 1000 idézetét, biztosan rájössz, miért nem tudja senki érthetően megmondani, milyen is a „jó, szabad, magyaros, angolos” fordítás, akkorra viszont egészen gyakorlott leszel (ez, ugye, egy Huron). A HUCQ nemcsak fordítást gyakoroltat, hanem szavakat és nyelvtant is tanít. Naponta válogathatsz fordítanivalót nehézségi szint vagy a nyelvtani index alapján. Ha bajban vagy a nyelvtannal, a fordítandó idézet mellett megadott témaszám alapján a Huron’s Checkbookban további mintákat találsz eredeti mondatokban. Jó munkát Neked, a Kis Hucq legyen veled!
