Opis - Pierwsze na świecie świadectwo ofiary zbrodni honorowej. Miała siedemnaście lat i zakochała się: zhańbiła rodzinę. Więc rodzina wydała na nią wyrok śmierci... Pokochała go pierwszą miłością. Myślała, że się z nią ożeni. Ale ukochany zniknął, a ona odkryła, że jest w ciąży. A w jej świecie to najcięższa zbrodnia... W zapomnianej przez Boga wiosce w Cisjordanii kobiety są warte mniej niż zwierzęta domowe. Tu mężczyzna jest panem życia i śmierci żony, córki, siostry. Brat może bezkarnie zabić siostrę, matka - córkę, kolejną bezużyteczną dziewczynkę, jaka się urodzi. Tu kobiecie odbiera się godność, a nawet życie zgodnie z odwiecznym obyczajem i uświęconą tradycją. A śmierć jest karą dla dziewczyny, która zhańbi rodzinę. Tak jak Souad. Wyrok wydaje jej ojciec. Szwagier dokonuje egzekucji. Oblewa Souad benzyną i podpala... SOUAD przeżyła - cudem, ale rodzina usiłowała zabić ją nawet w szpitalu. Na zawsze jednak pozostanie straszliwie okaleczona - na ciele i duszy. I wciąż musi się ukrywać; dopóki żyje, jej rodzinę okrywa hańba. Spalona żywcem, opublikowana pod pseudonimem szokująca opowieść o piekle, jakim było jej dzieciństwo i młodość, stała się międzynarodowym bestsellerem. Wydana w 37 w krajach książka przerywa tabu milczenia wobec istniejącej nadal w krajach muzułmańskich barbarzyńskiej tradycji. Nieludzkiego obyczaju, prawa mężczyzn, na mocy którego co najmniej pięć tysięcy kobiet pada co roku ofiarą zbrodni honorowej. Nazwa - Spalona Żywcem Wyd.

Call of Cthulhu and Other Tales of the Lovecraft Mythos Prohyptikon Publishing Inc

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

The seventeen stories selected for this compilation range from the fantastic to the outright bizarre, exposing the dark dreams and obsessions that plagued the short life of H.P. Lovecraft, the master of supernatural horror and fiction. Often known as either The Cthulhu or Lovecraft Mythos, his later works of short fiction are the foundation for the dark phantasmic mythology that has driven a cult following like none other before or since in literary history, inspiring countless writers and artists around the world over the last century. In the feature story 'The Call of Cthulhu', a manuscript is found amongst the papers of a deceased professor's estate, including pamphlets, newspaper clippings, and a strange statuette, all pointing to the same horrific truth-the return of the Dark God Cthulhu and his corpse-city R'lyeh. Furthering the research of the professor, the narrator is taken on a journey to the deep Pacific, as he discovers first-hand the fate that awaits all those who oppose the ancient cult devoted to the liberation of the monstrous being from the shadow time of Earth, that yearns to emerge from Its abyssal prison and sway all humankind to Its will. And while the aethereal beast from the darkest of ages past was forced back long enough to sink again with the ruins of Its nightmarish and impossible city, It is not beaten... Cthulhu lies in wait only for the stars to align once more. Also included are sixteen more terrifying tales from the twisted dreams and visions of the master of horror and the macabre: Azathoth, The Shadow Over Innsmouth, He, The Whisperer in Darkness, Cool Air, The Evil Clergyman, Ibid, The Book, History of the Necronomicon, The Strange High House in the Mist, Ex Oblivione, The Nameless City, Hypnos, The Horror at Red Hook, What the Moon Brings, and The Haunter of the Dark.

Michael Pye's The Edge of the World is an epic adventure: from the Vikings to the Enlightenment, from barbaric outpost to global centre, it tells the amazing story of northern Europe's transformation by sea. "An utterly beguiling journey into the dark ages of the north sea. A complete revelation...Pye writes like a dream. Magnificent." (Jerry Brotton, author of A History of the World in Twelve Maps). This is a story of saints and spies, of fishermen and pirates, traders and marauders - and of how their wild and daring journeys across the North Sea built the world we know. When the Roman Empire retreated, northern Europe was a barbarian outpost at the very edge of everything. A thousand years later, it was the heart of global empires and the home of science, art, enlightenment and money. We owe this transformation to the tides and storms of the North Sea. The water was dangerous, but it was far easier than struggling over land; so it was the sea that brought people together. Boats carried food and raw materials, but also new ideas and information. The seafarers raided, ruined and killed, but they also settled and coupled. With them they brought new tastes and technologies - books, clothes, manners, paintings and machines. In this dazzling historical adventure, we return to a time that is largely forgotten and watch as the modern world is born. We see the spread of money and how it paved the way for science. We see how plague terrorised even the rich and transformed daily life for the poor. We watch as the climate changed and coastlines shifted, people adapted and towns flourished. We see the arrival of the first politicians, artists, lawyers: citizens. From Viking raiders to Mongol hordes, Frisian fishermen to Hanseatic hustlers, travelling as far west as America and as far east as Byzantium, we see how the life and traffic of the seas changed everything. Drawing on an astonishing breadth of learning and packed with human stories and revelations, this is the epic drama of how we came to be who we are. "A closely-researched and fascinating characterisation of the richness of life and the underestimated interconnections of the peoples all around the medieval and early modern North Sea. A real page-turner." (Chris Wickham, author of The Inheritance of Rome: A History of Europe from 400 to 1000). "Elegant writing and extraordinary scholarship...Miraculous." (Hugh Aldersey-Williams, author of Periodic Tales and Anatomies). "Splendid. A heady mix of social, economic, and intellectual history, written in an engaging style. It offers a counterpoint to the many studies of the Mediterranean, arguing for the importance of the North Sea. Exciting, fun, and informative." (Michael Prestwich, Professor of History, Durham University). Michael Pye has written eleven previous books, translated into eleven languages, including two British bestsellers and two New York Times Notable Books of the Year. He took a First and various prizes in Modern History at Oxford, and was then for many years a highly successful journalist, columnist and broadcaster in London and New York. He now lives between London and rural Portugal.

Explains the relevance of ancient myths to the awakening to higher states of consciousness and enlivened experience of the world - Shows how higher consciousness can arise within each of us by following the guidance found in ancient myths - Reveals how myths influence our personal development without our awareness through their influence on our core values and culture - Examines ancient Sumerian, Egyptian, Babylonian, and Hebrew myths, such as the Epic of Gilgamesh and the story of Osiris and Isis In this study of ancient Sumerian, Egyptian, Babylonian, and Hebrew myths, authors Lloyd M. Dickie and Paul R. Boudreau show that many classic myths contain instructions for awakening higher consciousness, allowing access to enlivened experience of the world and awareness of the divine within and around us. Inspired by the work of R. A. Schwaller de Lubicz, the authors deeply examine creation myths and well-known ancient myths from Mesopotamia and Egypt, such as the Epic of Gilgamesh and the story of Osiris and Isis. They reveal that these myths are not behavioral morality tales but actual delineations of how a higher order can arise within each of us. The authors explain how these stories teach us to distinguish the heaven within from the earth within us, to find the essential part of our being that provides a link with our higher powers. Spending more than a year onsite in Egypt to personally connect with the myths, the authors explain how ancient storytellers intentionally chose myths as a vehicle for teachings because story has a seed-like capacity to implant itself in the unconscious and influence development without the individual being aware of it. By crafting these sacred narratives, the ancient Sumerians and Egyptians provide tools to awaken to the presence of higher consciousness as well as a road map for the individual to come into conscious alignment with the perpetual unfolding of the universe.

'The books line up on my shelf like bright Bodhisattvas ready to take tough questions or keep quiet company. They stake out a vast territory, with works from two millennia in multiple genres: aphorism, lyric, epic, theater, and romance' - Willis G. Regier, "The Chronicle Review". 'No effort has been spared to make these little volumes as attractive as possible to readers: the paper is of high quality, the typesetting immaculate. The founders of the series are John and Jennifer Clay, and Sanskritists can only thank them for an initiative intended to make the classics of an ancient Indian language accessible to a modern international audience' - "The Times Higher Education Supplement". 'The Clay Sanskrit Library represents one of the most admirable publishing projects now afoot...Anyone who loves the look and feel and heft of books will delight in these elegant little volumes' - "New Criterion". 'Published in the geek-chic format' - "BookForum". 'Very few collections of Sanskrit deep enough for research are housed anywhere in North America. Now, twenty-five hundred years after the death of Shakyamuni Buddha, the ambitious Clay Sanskrit Library may remedy this state of affairs' - "Tricycle". 'Now an ambitious new publishing project, the Clay Sanskrit Library brings together leading Sanskrit translators and scholars of Indology from around the world to celebrate in translating the beauty and range of classical Sanskrit literature...Published as smart green hardbacks that are small enough to fit into a jeans pocket, the volumes are meant to satisfy both the scholar and the lay reader. Each volume has a transliteration of the original Sanskrit text on the left-hand page and an English translation on the right, as also a helpful introduction and notes. Alongside definitive translations of the great Indian epics - 30 or so volumes will be devoted to the "Mahabharat" itself - Clay Sanskrit Library makes available to the English-speaking reader many other delights: The earthy verse of Bhartrihari, the pungent satire of Jayanta Bhatta and the roving narratives of Dandin, among others. All these writers belong properly not just to Indian literature, but to world literature' - "LiveMint". 'The Clay Sanskrit Library has recently set out to change the scene by making available well-translated dual-language (English and Sanskrit) editions of popular Sanskritic texts for the public' - "Namarupa". 'James Mallinson's new translation of "The Ocean of the Rivers of Story" is highly recommended to anyone interested in South Asian or comparative folk-narrative studies' - "Journal of Folklore Research". Somadeva composed his "Ocean of the Rivers of Story" in Kashmir in the eleventh century CE. It is a vast collection of tales based on "The Long Story", a now lost (and perhaps legendary) repository of Indian fables, in which prince Naravahanadatta wins twenty-six wives and becomes the emperor of the sorcerers. There are tales within tales within tales. By turns funny, exciting, or didactic, they illustrate points within the narrative or are told simply to provide entertainment for the protagonists. Its twenty thousand plus verses are written in simple but elegant Sanskrit and it has long been used as an introductory text for students of the language. It is co-published by New York University Press and the JJC Foundation.

This is an odyssey to democracy; these are the origins of Themistokles...When Phokion is given a mission by a dying queen in Egypt, who wants to atone for atrocities she has committed across the Libyan Desert, he meets up with his sister's family in Athens. While he is there, he is caught up in the assassination of an Athenian tyrant and must decide how he should proceed with matters concerning his family, his mission and the emerging democratic movement. Some people do what is right, many are mistaken and others deceive...Arkhon : An epic tale from the dawn of democracy is a fast-paced thriller that follows the fate of a former mercenary who becomes entangled in the overthrow of tyranny and the emergence of democracy in ancient Athens. An exciting tale of adventure set in the ancient world, the novel reflects recent political upheavals around the world. Exploring present-day issues that include political legitimacy, foreign intervention, revenge, superstition and the manipulation of religion, the drama draws directly from the tensions and discourse that developed around the Arab uprisings of 2011-2013. As Lowry explores the modern parallels between the ancient and current world, this exciting tale, grounded by reality, comes to life. Stories from Herodotus are woven together with the insights of Homer and Aesop, and their ideas, relevant throughout history, resonate today through Arkhon. This novel will be enjoyed by those who relish epic historical adventures and will also appeal to individuals with an interest in current affairs.

Quest of Heroes Morgan Rice

"THE SORCERER'S RING has all the ingredients for an instant success: plots, counterplots, mystery, valiant knights, and blossoming relationships replete with broken hearts, deception and betrayal. It will keep you entertained for hours, and will satisfy all ages. Recommended for the permanent library of all fantasy readers." --Books and Movie Reviews, Roberto Mattos The #1 Bestseller! From #1 Bestselling author Morgan Rice comes the debut of a dazzling new fantasy series. A QUEST OF HEROES (BOOK #1 IN THE SORCERER'S RING) revolves around the epic coming of age story of one special boy, a 14 year old from a small village on the outskirts of the Kingdom of the Ring. The youngest of four, the least favorite of his father, hated by his brothers, Thorgrin senses he is different from the others. He dreams of becoming a great warrior, of joining the King's men and protecting the Ring from the hordes of creatures on the other side of the Canyon. When he comes of age and is forbidden by his father to try out for the King's Legion, he refuses to take no for an answer: he journeys out on his own, determined to force his way into King's Court and be taken seriously. But King's Court is rife with its own family dramas, power struggles, ambitions, jealousy, violence and betrayal. King MacGil must choose an heir from amongst his children, and the ancient Dynasty Sword, the source of all their power, still sits untouched, waiting for the chosen one to arrive. Thorgrin arrives as an outsider and battles to be accepted, and to join the King's Legion. Thorgrin comes to learn he has mysterious powers he does not understand, that he has a special gift, and a special destiny. Against all odds he falls in love with the king's daughter, and as their forbidden relationship blossoms, he discovers he has powerful rivals. As he struggles to make sense of his powers, the king's sorcerer takes him under his wing and tells him of a mother he never knew, in a land far away, beyond the Canyon, beyond even the land of the Dragons. Before Thorgrin can venture out and become the warrior he yearns to be, he must complete his training. But this may be cut short, as he finds himself propelled into the center of royal plots and counterplots, ones that may threaten his love and bring him down-and the entire kingdom with him. With its sophisticated world-building and characterization, A QUEST OF HEROES is an epic tale of friends and lovers, of rivals and suitors, of knights and dragons, of intrigues and political machinations, of coming of age, of broken hearts, of deception, ambition and betrayal. It is a tale of honor and courage, of fate and destiny, of sorcery. It is a fantasy that brings us into a world we will never forget, and which will appeal to all ages and genders. It is 82,000 words. Books #3--#17 in the series are now also available! "[An] entertaining epic fantasy." -Kirkus Reviews "The beginnings of something remarkable are there." --San Francisco Book Review "Action-packed .... Rice's writing is solid and the premise intriguing." --Publishers Weekly "A spirited fantasy ....Only the beginning of what promises to be an epic young adult series." --Midwest Book Review
