Colene does not know what to think of the stranger she has rescued. Darius tells her he has traveled from ´´his reality´´ to find her. In proving to Colene that other worlds do exist, he uses up the power of the artifact that would allow them to travel back to his universe. They must try a slower, more dangerous method: the creation of a four-dimensional universe. Darius picks five anchor points in five different universes to set up a skew path, a ´´virtual mode,´´ on which the anchors can walk.Thus begins a tale of romance, danger, adventure, and intrigue as the two travel through a myriad of alternate realities where anything is possible. 1.

Hadley Freeman, Guardian features writer and author of the popular ‘Ask Hadley…’ column, presents the modern lady with 23 essays that remind us to Be Awesome. ‘Being single is often awesome. You can leave a party when you want to, whether that be 9pm or 9am; you don´t have to live in fear of ever hearing yourself described as ‘my better half’; and you can spend all day lying on the sofa in your pajamas watching Murder She Wrote and eating peanut butter straight out of the jar’. ‘Don´t, if you are over the age of 18, refer to yourself as a ‘girl’ or your friends, if they are over 18, as ‘the girls.’ You are a woman and so are they. And you know what? That´s just brilliant.’ Covering topics vital for any modern woman to consider (from ‘How to read women’s magazines without wanting to grow a penis’ to ‘Beyond the armpit: a guide to being a modern day feminist’), Be Awesome tackles body image, sex, dating and feminism head on. With an attitude that is unfalteringly funny, smart and surprisingly heartwarming, Hadley Freeman is a voice of sanity that every woman should hear. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Hadley Freeman.

A recipient of the Whiting Foundation Teaching Fellowship, Katherine Elkins is also the co-director of the Integrated Program in the Humane Studies at Kenyon College. In this lecture series, Elkins examines the development of the modern novel by investigating four great modernist authors: James Joyce, Franz Kafka, Marcel Proust, and Virginia Woolf. The lectures explore the authors’ most respected works and illustrate how each author’s unique style and vision made a major contribution to the look and shape of the novel today. 1.

The Hidden Truths of a Modern Seer, the second book in the Modern Seer Trilogy, reveals the sublime and fantastical second half of Cher´s intense seven years of spiritual training. It is written that it takes three and a half years to break the lower self and a further three and a half years to fully transcend the darkness within, so as to be considered fit to embark upon the path of spiritual mastery.This very honest narrative lays bare Cher´s journey into the hidden realms of existence, where much is taught by beings and intelligences at the Mystery Schools for Initiates on the path of self-mastery. Everything that one thinks, says, and does either builds light or builds darkness - quite a responsibility to live with! As a spy in this world and a team member of a higher order for the divine plan, one learns to respond to divine command and instruction as one lives multidimensionally, as an initiate, until one becomes a master! 1.

Of all the British poets of my generation, Ted Hughes, now nearly 20 years dead, left behind him both the grandest and most sulfurous reputation. The controversies he aroused rumble on, and the hurts, in certain quarters, are still keenly felt.The gestation of Bate´s book, chronicled here, gives ample proof of this. The author began it with the full sanction of Hughes’ widow, Carol, on the understanding that it was to be a ´´literary life´´. Halfway through its composition, cooperation was withdrawn - hence the subtitle, ´´The Unauthorised Life´´. This has restricted Bate´s freedom to quote from Hughes´ writings as much as he might have liked, but has in other respects (as he points out) left him more fully at liberty to say what he wants to say about a life story that was in any terms pretty dramatic.Any life story that comprises not just two but actually three suicides (Hughes´ son, Nicholas, killed himself in 2009, just over 10 years after his father´s death), plus a murder - one can´t describe the death of Hughes´ little daughter, Shura, gassed by her suicidal mother, the poet´s mistress, Assia Wevill, as anything else - does wrap a cloak of darkness about itself. 1.

In this major, paradigm-shifting work, Kojin Karatani systematically re-evaluates Marx´s version of world history, shifting the focus of critique from modes of production to modes of exchange. Karatani seeks to understand both capital-nation-state, the interlocking system that´s the dominant form of modern global society, and the possibilities for superseding it. He traces different modes of exchange, including the pooling of resources that characterizes nomadic tribes, the gift exchange systems developed after the adoption of fixed-settlement agriculture, the exchange of obedience for protection that arises with the emergence of the state, the commodity exchanges that characterize capitalism, and, finally, a future mode of exchange based on the return of gift exchange, albeit modified for the contemporary moment. He argues that this final stage - marking the overcoming of capital, nation, and state - is best understood in light of Kant´s writings on eternal peace. The Structure of World History is in many ways the capstone of Karatani´s brilliant career, yet it also signals new directions in his thought. The book was published by Duke University Press. 1.
