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.

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

This early work by Robert E. Howard was originally published in 1934 and we are now republishing it with a brand new introductory biography. 'The People of the Black Circle' is a novella in the Conan series where he kidnaps a princess and foils the plot of evil magicians. 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.

Coon Dogs and Outhouses Volume 3 Tales from Tennessee Totalrecall Publications

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Remember the stories your grandfather use to tell you about way back when? Remember laughing out loud as the stories got deeper? If you like to LOL than this really is a book for you. Some observations on life in general and people in particular as seen through a collection of newspaper columns, presenting skewed, off-beat, semi-serious, and sometimes amusing views of the world. Dr. Luke Boyd is a writer for the Williamson Herald and Mature Lifestyles magazine. Dr. Boyd retired after serving for 19 years as Principal of Battle Ground Academy, a private, college preparatory school in Franklin, Tennessee. Coon Dogs and Outhouses Volume 3 Tales From Tennessee is the 2013 Grand Prize Winner for Humor at the "Books Without Publishers" writing contest. It all started back in 2004. I had grown tired of reading stories in our local newspaper whose writers had problems putting sentences together correctly. An especial egregious error was the misplacement of modifiers and modifying phrases. It was common to read a caption under a picture that "Joe Quick, star running back for the Pinecrest Panthers, signs a letter of intent of play football in the coming year for the University of Tennessee on Thursday." This, of course, would make him a very specialized player as he would only be playing in games scheduled for that one day of the week. Figuring these errors to be the property of the sports writers, I held my tongue until the curse of the roving modifiers began to migrate to other sections of the paper. Critical mass was reached when a local fellow was killed in a motorcycle wreck on Concord Road. A misplaced modifying phrase made it appear that the accident had occurred at Centennial Hospital. No longer able to restrain myself, I wrote a letter to the editor, pointing out these reoccurring errors and asking that the paper try to present a correct and positive writing example for our youth. My letter was not printed. I had known the editor for a number of years and expected some response but got none. A few weeks later I ran into the editor at a Christmas open house. Her first words to me were, "You can come down to the office and read copy any time you want to." My response was that I didn't have time to be the paper's copy editor and that the paper ought to have someone to fill that role. Next she asked, "Do you think you can do any better." "I know I can," I replied. "Well, write me a couple of columns and let's see," she said as she obviously threw down a challenge. I did so and soon after came the offer for me to write a regular column. I almost panicked. What if after two or three months I found that I had nothing left to say? Crashing and burning in full view of a lot of people who knew me would be an inglorious end. But I decided to give it a whirl. That was over nine years ago and so far I've written about 250 columns and still have a writing folder full of ideas and topics that (I think) need commenting on. And in 2007 the editor of Mature Lifestyles, a monthly magazine for seniors, read some of my stuff and asked me to do a column for their publication. And through it all I've managed to keep my modifiers in the correct places.

Three Tales of Omne / The Elder of Days (Wildside Double #8) Borgo Press

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

In the tradition of the old "Ace Doubles" two-in-one books (flip one over to read the second title)--here is the eighth Wildside Double. THREE TALES OF OMNE: A COMPANION TO WORDSMITH, by Michael R. Collings This is Omne, a world enveloped by perpetual clouds, without metals, machines, or technology, whose people harbor the secrets of an unimaginable power for destruction--or redemption. But--before it became Omne, it was Colony, home of a small group of refugees from Earth, struggling to survive on a new planet and understand its rules, unaware of their gradual transformation into something no longer quite human. This is the story of how it all began! THE ELDER OF DAYS: TALES OF THE ELDERS, by Robert Reginald They hide among us, these near-immortals, and they go by names like William Shakespeare and John Donne and Napoleon Bonaparte. They're immune to most diseases, heal rapidly from injury, and age so slowly that their life-spans are encompassed by the passage of millennia. These are The Elders. In "Katydid," Jack must penetrate the mystery of a decaying trolley car and the curious 1920s photo album secreted within. A statistical reporting anomaly for "Eldering," a forgotten town tucked away in the Cumberland Mountains, prompts a dying census worker to investigate. Abused wife Jewel-Rose can only find the "chaud" in the "Boneyard" just outside her small Montana town. Time traveler Pat Wardon is determined upon "Saving Jane Austen"--whether she wants to be saved or not! Great romantic fantasy stories.

Teena found a pen one day, a beautiful Cartier that her father so delicately kept in soft cotton in a drawer. It was mesmerising. She tried it. And on that day, blue on white became her ill, perhaps today more of a skill. Unsure, she has never stopped writing about those people she knew, lives lost, wars fought, orphan migrants, all those things she heard, too much for her brain, but never enough for her pen. Sometimes too painful to write about, her stories took form in poetic verses, a language easier to hide truths into. Two things Teena has since then known: She would forever write about Mauritius, her motherland, happy or otherwise.

Dragon's Tales for Boys Only! Abela Publishing

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

In this book boys will find 28 tales of dragons and serpents drawn from the mists of time. Some are friendly dragons and provide wisdom and direction to the heroes of our stories, others are downright wicked, oozing malice and evil leaving the hero of the story no option but to destroy the spiteful, fire-breathing, beast. Our heroes always sally forth wilfully, but cautiously, engaging these ancient creatures to save a damsel in distress, or their families, from sure destruction and banishment to oblivion. ******* Herein you will find the tails (Oops! Sorry, Freudian slip) tales of THE DELUDED DRAGON, THE GYPSY AND THE DRAGON, THE TWO PRINCES, THE DRAGON OF GHENT , THE MAGIC EGG, THE GREAT BATTLE, THE SWORD GRAM AND THE DRAGON FAFNIR and many, many more. These tales have been drawn from eighteen old and forgotten books and the thirty-three illustrations are by different artists bringing styles that are as different as the stories. ******* But why a book for boys you may ask? Some have said we are courting controversy? And we do agree. It seems that nowadays we are not allowed to use simple English adjectives to describe obvious situations. Why? Because the PC Police say so, and no-one dare disobey them! Anyway, who put them in charge? This is in itself a well-disguised form of tyranny. This is the type of tyranny my father, and maybe your grandfather's, fought against in WWII. They fought for our right to go where we want, when we want and to have free speech. This is also the type of restrictive tyranny that the dragons in this book sought to impose on people, too scared to challenge them. Tyranny that existed until a hero stepped forward, challenged and defeated the dragon. It is our hope that the boys who read this book will grow up to be the kind of heroes who aren't afraid of challenging the status quo.

Original Folk and Fairy Tales of the Brothers Grimm Princeton University Press

When Jacob and Wilhelm Grimm published their Children's and Household Tales in 1812, followed by a second volume in 1815, they had no idea that such stories as "Rapunzel," "Hansel and Gretel," and "Cinderella" would become the most celebrated in the world. Yet few people today are familiar with the majority of tales from the two early volumes, since in the next four decades the Grimms would publish six other editions, each extensively revised in content and style. For the very first time, The Original Folk and Fairy Tales of the Brothers Grimm makes available in English all 156 stories from the 1812 and 1815 editions. These narrative gems, newly translated and brought together in one beautiful book, are accompanied by sumptuous new illustrations from award-winning artist Andrea Dezso. From "The Frog King" to "The Golden Key," wondrous worlds unfold--heroes and heroines are rewarded, weaker animals triumph over the strong, and simple bumpkins prove themselves not so simple after all. Esteemed fairy tale scholar Jack Zipes offers accessible translations that retain the spare description and engaging storytelling style of the originals. Indeed, this is what makes the tales from the 1812 and 1815 editions unique--they reflect diverse voices, rooted in oral traditions, that are absent from the Grimms' later, more embellished collections of tales. Zipes's introduction gives important historical context, and the book includes the Grimms' prefaces and notes. A delight to read, The Original Folk and Fairy Tales of the Brothers Grimm presents these peerless stories to a whole new generation of readers.

The used bookstore still stands where he was given the diary by an eccentric sales clerk who then vanished, and now a little girl named Alex has wandered through its doors. Mystified by tales her grandmother told her of her best friend, Kevin, who vanished after reading about Oliver Lee, Alex enters the abandoned bookstore and finds the same journal. After taking it home, her grandmother, GG, is furious that she broke into the store. The story takes place as race relations and riots erupt over the summer of 1964. GG tells Alex the stories she read about Oliver Lee were fake and that he didn't really exist. But when Alex leaves, GG begins to read the journal Alex found in Antique Books and realizes it's the same diary from her past. She finds Kevin has added the story of how he met GG, his ability to hear the music of crimson leaves as they sprout from the white oak near the school, and his search for Oliver Lee that can save two innocent people he believes will die if he doesn't act. As GG and Alex get sucked into Kevin's world, Kevin explains his newfound ability to "stream" stories while searching for answers about Oliver Lee, Antique Books, and the deaths of the couple he's trying to save. Is Kevin transforming into the living myth of Oliver Lee? About the Author: Kenneth Rogers, Jr. is an inner city teacher of humanities in Baltimore, Maryland, and the father of two girls.
