Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

No modern Japanese writer was more idolized than Shiga Naoya. The Paper Door and Other Stories showcases the concise, delicate art of this writer who is often called "the god of the Japanese short story." Doyen of Japanese letters Donald Keene ranks some of Shiga's stories "among the most brilliant achievements in this genre by any twentieth-century Japanese writer." Shiga's unique style is concise and simple, with no unnecessary words. With the subtlest of gestures, he evokes the fullness of experience. Lane Dunlop's masterly translation of seventeen of Shiga's finest stories has provided English readers their first overview of the author's work. Now back in print, the book is augmented by Donald Keene's new preface contextualizing Shiga's awesome literary gifts. Dunlop has chosen stories that aptly represent Shiga's range and virtuosity. With selections spanning forty years, from the fable-like "The Little Girl and the Rapeseed Flower" to the psychologically complex "A Gray Moon," this collection delineates the development of Shiga's rare genius.

After seventeen years as a practitioner and teacher of Reiki, Sister Eileen has been astonished by the sheer number of people who have continued to stream through the door. People of all ages and traditions have come seeking their healing and finding it as Eileen did when she first embarked on this foreign road that soon became home to her. Eileen has come to recognize through her many years of practice that there is an inherent healing power within each of us and that the gift of Reiki is able to activate it. In her training manual, Eileen brings with her a core community of Reiki practitioners from different traditions and backgrounds that journey alongside her and recognize, as she does, the simplicity, wonder and beauty of God's universal gift for our time. The healing stories are too numerous to count but she does include specific testimonials within her training manual that speak for the thousands of others who have been healed through the doorway of Reiki. In this way, Eileen's Level I and II training manual, becomes a living testimony as she thoroughly covers all the information required to be a successful and competent Reiki practitioner. Written with inspiration and clarity, Eileen takes the reader on an amazing journey into the dynamic world of the inner self. Like a fresh current of air, she presents her material in an appealing and easily digestible manner. The uniqueness of Eileen's Reiki training manual lies in her ability to weave the Christ conscious healing dimension into it just as an alchemist would when producing gold. In this way, Eileen shows how the revered eastern practice of Reiki discovered by Dr. Mikao Usui, a Japanese Buddhist, in the early 20th century can blend perfectly with a Christian heritage of healing where the one enhances the other. At the same time, she shows how this simple, profound method of healing transcends cultural and religious boundaries in a way that makes this universal gift of Life Force Energy accessible to anyone. Often people who encounter Reiki for the first time experience an inner bliss and harmony which leads them to explore the gift more fully. Others go away from the treatment or training feeling restored, refreshed and renewed. Reiki, the universal Life Force Energy of God, is not a new invention or modern day fad. Its roots are planted deep in ancient history. In the Old Testament, Life Force Energy was spoken about eloquently and has been pulsating through the whole of creation from the beginning of time. Even science and the world of medicine are looking at this complementary form of healing called "Reiki" with fresh new eyes. Its worldwide impact can no longer go unnoticed. About the Author: Eileen Curteis, a Sister of Saint Ann, is a Reiki Master teacher and practitioner, who has taught and treated thousands of people over the last seventeen years at Queenswood, a former retreat and spirituality centre in Victoria, British Columbia. Preceding this, Eileen was a teacher, principal and educator for twenty-seven years. Her greatest passion lies in the literary arts. She has authored ten books to date and through the years has become an accomplished poet, artist, writer, as well as being a producer of six CDs and three films.

Quill & Candle Dark Regions Press

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Quill and Candle is the second book in the Ghost House imprint and includes six interior illustrations by artist Erin Wells. In Quill and Candle Scott Thomas invites the reader back to an earlier, quieter time, when travelers relied on horses, when cooking was done over a hearth, and frost nights were illuminated by tapers. It was, perhaps, a more haunted time... Here you will find the corpse of a child which can foretell the future, and a stately Massachusetts house where the painting of a mourning gown haunts a bedchamber wall. Something terrible inhabits a wintry woodlot and something worse menaces a war-bound frigate. The seventeen stories within are steeped in autumn leaves, chilled in wintry wind and haunted by New England ghosts. "That's no ordinary chill in the night air. It's the result of spooky tales told by the master. Scott Thomas continues to entertain with timeless stories of the macabre." - Jordan Rich, WBZ Radio "Thomas' stories creep under your skin, linger with you for days and follow into many deep, dark nights." - Fatally Yours Scott Thomas is an atmosphere wizard summoning up a semblance of time past in his evocation of the weird. He rises from the eerie evolution of Nathaniel Hawthorne, Edgar Allan Poe, Ambrose Bierce, Lafacadio Hearn, and H.P. Lovecraft, yet his poignant stories are astonishingly original.

Bangladesh Reader COMBINED ACADEMIC PUBLISHERS

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Bangladesh is the world's eighth most populous country. It has more inhabitants than either Russia or Japan, and its national language, Bengali, ranks sixth in the world in terms of native speakers. Founded in 1971, Bangladesh is a relatively young nation, but the Bengal Delta region has been a major part of international life for more than 2,000 years, whether as an important location for trade or through its influence on Buddhist, Hindu, and Muslim life. Yet the country rarely figures in global affairs or media, except in stories about floods, poverty, or political turmoil. The Bangladesh Reader does what those portrayals do not: It illuminates the rich historical, cultural, and political permutations that have created contemporary Bangladesh, and it conveys a sense of the aspirations and daily lives of Bangladeshis. Intended for travelers, students, and scholars, the Reader encompasses first-person accounts, short stories, historical documents, speeches, treaties, essays, poems, songs, photographs, cartoons, paintings, posters, advertisements, maps, and a recipe. Classic selections familiar to many Bangladeshis - and essential reading for those who want to know the country - are juxtaposed with less-known pieces. The selections are translated from a dozen languages; many have not been available in English until now. Featuring 100 images, including seventeen in color, The Bangladesh Reader is an unprecedented, comprehensive introduction to the South Asian country's turbulent past and vibrant present.

The Shadow Kingdom White Press

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

This early work by Robert E. Howard was originally published in 1929 and we are now republishing it with a brand new introductory biography. 'The Shadow Kingdom' is a story in the Kull series in which Kull is tricked by the Serpent Men and barely escapes with his life. Robert Ervin Howard was born in Peaster, Texas in 1906. During his youth, his family moved between a variety of Texan boomtowns, and Howard - a bookish and somewhat introverted child - was steeped in the violent myths and legends of the Old South. At fifteen Howard began to read the pulp magazines of the day, and to write more seriously. The December 1922 issue of his high school newspaper featured two of his stories, 'Golden Hope Christmas' and 'West is West'. In 1924 he sold his first piece - a short caveman tale titled 'Spear and Fang' - for $16 to the not-yet-famous Weird Tales magazine. Howard's most famous character, Conan the Cimmerian, was a barbarian-turned-King during the Hyborian Age, a mythical period of some 12,000 years ago. Conan featured in seventeen Weird Tales stories between 1933 and 1936 which is why Howard is now regarded as having spawned the 'sword and sorcery' genre. The Conan stories have since been adapted many times, most famously in the series of films starring Arnold Schwarzenegger.

Night at the Crossroads Penguin

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

This is a new translation of Georges Simenon's sensational tale of deceit and back-stabbing in an isolated community, book six in the new Penguin Maigret series. 'She came forward, the outlines of her figure blurred in the half-light. She came forward like a film star, or rather like the ideal woman in an adolescent's dream. 'I gather you wish to talk to me, Inspector ...but first of all please sit down...' Her accent was more pronounced than Carl's. Her voice sang, dropping on the last syllable of the longer words.' Maigret has been interrogating Carl Andersen for seventeen hours without a confession. He's either innocent or a very good liar. So why was the body of a diamond merchant found at his isolated mansion? Why is his sister always shut away in her room? And why does everyone at Three Widows Crossroads have something to hide? Penguin is publishing the entire series of Maigret novels. "Compelling, remorseless, brilliant". (John Gray). "One of the greatest writers of the twentieth century...Simenon was unequalled at making us look inside, though the ability was masked by his brilliance at absorbing us obsessively in his stories". (Guardian). "A supreme writer ...unforgettable vividness". (Independent). Georges Simenon was born in Liege, Belgium, in 1903. Best known in Britain as the author of the Maigret books, his prolific output of over 400 novels and short stories have made him a household name in continental Europe. He died in 1989 in Lausanne, Switzerland, where he had lived for the latter part of his life. Linda Coverdale is the awarding-winning translator of many French works and has been honoured with the title of Chevalier of the Order of Arts and Letters for her contribution to French literature.

Beyond Belief Picador

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

This is a book about one of the more important and unsettling issues of our time. But it is not a book of opinion. It is, in the Naipaul way, a very rich and human book, full of people and their stories: stories of family, both broken and whole; of religion and nation; and of the constant struggle to create a world of virtue and prosperity in equal measure. Islam is an Arab religion, and it makes imperial Arabizing demands on its converts. In this way it is more than a private faith; and it can become a neurosis. What has this Arab Islam done to the histories of the non-Arab Islamic states: Indonesia, Iran, Pakistan, and Malaysia? How do the converted peoples view their past -- and their future? In a follow-up to Among the Believers, his classic account of his travels through these countries, V. S. Naipaul returns, after a gap of seventeen years, to find out how and what the converted preach. 'Sceptical, enquiring, sharply observant and unfailingly stylish' Guardian 'Peerless ...the human encounters are described minutely, superbly, picking up inconsistencies in people's tales, catching the uncertainties and the nuances ...there is a candour to his writing, a constant precision at its heart' Sunday Times

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.

Duck Gods Must be Crazy Globe Pequot Press

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

In this follow up to his best-selling book Don't Shoot the Decoys, author Doug Larsen offers more humorous observations on the sport of waterfowling. The book begins with a hilarious "Open Letter to the Duck Gods," in which Larsen wonders aloud about what he has done to deserve the wrath of the duck hunting deities, which have obviously conspired against him to ruin his hunting season, his physical and mental health, and his family life. "Three weeks into the season," he writes, "with only two weeks left to go. Everything seems to be going against me, and I wouldn't know a limit of ducks if I tripped over one." From there Larsen lets his duck hunting fancy take flights that are sure to tickle the funny bones of waterfowlers everywhere. These include ruminations on why there aren't any duck hunting movies (in the story "Black Duck Down"), a duck hunt with two sharp-shooting and keen-witted little old ladies in the Louisiana bayou (in "A Duck for Gumbo"), a chapter devoted to, of all things, "Coot Tactics," and seventeen other new and original stories of "waterfowling obsession." Indeed, what was said when Larsen published his first book is even more apt with the publication of his second: "If Gordon MacQuarrie is the voice of the old duck hunters, then Doug Larsen is the voice of the new."

A quirky coming-of-age story, perfect for fans of John Green, David Levithan and Stephen Chbosky. Just when seventeen-year-old Cullen Witter thinks he understands everything about his small town, everything changes. His sensitive, gifted fifteen-year-old brother Gabriel has suddenly and inexplicably disappeared. Then a birdwatcher thinks he spots the Lazurus woodpecker - a species thought to be extinct since the 1940s. Sparking a flurry of press, the small town erupts into woodpecker mania. Soon all the kids are getting woodpecker haircuts and everyone's eating "Lazarus burgers". Cullen must navigate his way through a summer of finding and losing love while also holding his fragile family together. Meanwhile a young missionary in Africa, who has lost his faith, is searching for meaning wherever he can find it. As distant as they seem, these stories are thoughtfully woven ever closer together and before a surprising and harrowing climax. Complex but truly extraordinary, tinged with melancholy and regret, comedy and absurdity, this novel finds wonder in the ordinary. It's about a lot more than what Cullen calls, "that damn bird." It's about the dream of second chances.
