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.

Carnton Plantation Ghost Stories Sea Raven Enterprises

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

With its 100-year history of infant mortality, violence, murder, war, surgical amputations, political intrigue, thousands of ghastly deaths, and a long streak of truly bad luck, it's little wonder that Carnton Plantation is haunted, or that thousands travel each year to visit its hallowed grounds in the hopes of spotting a ghost themselves. What is perhaps more surprising is that no one has thought to chronicle the accounts of Carnton's many ghost stories, and put them in a book for readers of all ages. Lochlainn Seabrook, a former Carnton tour guide and the author of dozens of popular Civil War books, has rectified this situation by providing us with the first nonfiction book ever written about the goblins of Tennessee's most haunted Civil War house. "Carnton Plantation Ghost Stories" is loaded with both fun and serious facts touching on numerous topics, from the Civil War, plantation life, and Victorian culture, to 19th-Century medicine, genealogy, and slavery. And all is written from the South's point of view, a refreshing perspective that enriches an already fascinating subject: a Southern plantation full of Civil War ghosts! Included is a complete list of the dead Rebel soldiers buried at the McGavock Confederate Cemetery, over 100 photos and illustrations of paranormal energies, Carnton Mansion, and the grounds, maps of the property, a wonderful and useful "Ghostly Glossary," a history of both Carnton and the Battle of Franklin II, and factual discussions on Lincoln's War. Additionally, Seabrook, who is related to the founders and owners of Carnton, has thoughtfully included a family tree for the plantation clan. Entertaining yet educational, diverting yet gripping, this is a book that everyone from ghost-hunters to Civil War buffs will want on their shelf. The foreword is by Austin Cook, team leader of SyFy Channel's hit TV series "Killer Contact." Available in paperback and hardcover. Civil War scholar Lochlainn Seabrook, a descendant of the families of Alexander H. Stephens and John S. Mosby, is the most prolific and popular pro-South writer in the world today. Known as the "new Shelby Foote," he is a recipient of the prestigious Jefferson Davis Historical Gold Medal and the author of over 45 books that have introduced hundreds of thousands to the truth about the War for Southern Independence. A seventh-generation Kentuckian of Appalachian heritage and the sixth great-grandson of the Earl of Oxford, Mr. Seabrook has a forty-year background in American and Southern history, and is the author of the runaway bestseller "Everything You Were Taught About the Civil War is Wrong, Ask a Southerner!" His other books include: "The McGavocks of Carnton Plantation: A Southern History"; "Encyclopedia of the Battle of Franklin"; "Everything You Were Taught About American Slavery is Wrong, Ask a Southerner!"; "Give This Book to a Yankee! A Southern Guide to the Civil War For Northerners"; "Confederacy 101: Amazing Facts You Never Knew About America's Oldest Political Tradition"; and "Confederate Flag Facts: What Every American Should Know About Dixie's Southern Cross."

Forrest J. Ackerman Presents This Island Earth PULPLESS.COM INC

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

In 1949 and 1950 a science fiction serial by Raymond F. Jones appeared in Thrilling Wonder Stories. Within half a decade that serial would make history as the basis of the first science fiction movie about interstellar travel and interstellar war. The next Hollywood movie to venture to another solar system was Forbidden Planet, a wholly original construct of the prestige studio MGM. But solid, reliable Universal Studios was there first...long before Star Trek.This Island Earth was really the first Star Wars. Colorful, spectacular, wildly imaginative, it lived up to everything its agent could possibly want, a man who was known as Mr. Science Fiction and who now brings back this classic novel: Forrest J Ackerman. A phrase he coined in another galaxy a long time ago say's it all: Gosh Wow! This story has it all.The cover of this special edition features Jeff Morrow in the role of one of the most sympathetic aliens in 1950's science fiction film (the other is Michael Rennie in The Day the Earth Stood Still, also adapted from a literary source). In the novel he is Jorgasnovara, in the movie the less jaw Breaking Exeter. In both print and celluloid he comes to respect the Earth scientists essayed by Rex Reason and Faith Domergue.This Island Earth is a book of heroes. The first half of the film closely follows the novel but then diverges from the intellectual challenges faced by Dr. Cal Meachem to more cinematic fare. Reading the novel now, one cannot help but marvel at how Jones' views everything from labor disputes to the predictability of computers influenced later movies and television, making This Island Earth, the novel, even more influential than-one would guess from ThisIslandEarth the movie.Pulpless.Com is proud to bring back the printed word in hope that all who see the movie will want to read the book, and vice versa! Turn on your interocitors and prepare to receive transmission!
