Book Summary:

Get ready for the journey of a lifetime in the first book of an all-new, captivating fantasy series from thrilling debut author Gillian Grant. A world without gods. A dangerous quest. And a secret that will shake Eith to its very core. As a hunter, Evren Hanali of Orenlion has probably seen it all and done even more, even though she likes to fade into the background. She prefers a solitary existence, doing the jobs she’s commissioned for and not much else. But fate has other plans. It seems she has a destiny—one she is only beginning to unravel. And unlikely companions and exotic places are only the beginning of her journey. When circumstances beyond her control—and gravity—send her plummeting to what she fears may be her death, walking away unscathed opens a world of possibilities. Somehow, she becomes the leader of a motley crew of allies with a shared mission. Only it’s not clear what anyone’s end goal is, and trust is hard-earned. Still, the merry band of adventurers finds solace and friendship along the way—not to mention dangers galore. In the instance of the Yawning Deep, as above is not as below. Add magic and mayhem to the mix, and Evren has the fight of her life on her hands. When one hard-fought win leads to revelations of lies, deceit, and murder, Evren and company must be willing to fight for what they believe—and each other. Or die trying.

Book Summary:

The X-Men meets Ocean's Eleven in this edge-of-your-seat sci-fi adventure about a band of "super" criminals. When the deadly MK virus swept across the planet, a vaccine was created to stop the epidemic, but it came with some unexpected side effects. A small percentage of the population developed superhero-like powers, and Americans suffering from these so-called adverse effects were given an ultimatum: Serve the country or be declared a traitor. Some people chose a third option: live a life of crime. Seventeen-year-old Ciere Giba has the handy ability to change her appearance at will. She's what's known as an illusionist. She's also a thief. After crossing a gang of mobsters, Ciere must team up with a group of fellow super powered criminals on a job that most would have considered impossible: a hunt for the formula that gave them their abilities. It was supposedly destroyed years ago--but what if it wasn't? Government agents are hot on their trail, and the lines between good and bad, us and them, and freedom and entrapment are blurred as Ciere and the rest of her crew become embroiled in a deadly race that could cost them their lives.

Book Summary:

I chose the title A Poemers Poemerings because it means (for me) that someone is always writing about something or anything. Its odd and catchy at the same time, and its the main title for the series that I am writing in volumes because theres too many to put into one book. I think of all my poems as individual artworks. All on their own, they are completed from start to finish. It is a journey, a path, and a message that will inspire, mesmerize, intrigue, and take you to that deepness that hasnt been felt or known of your own self. Allow yourself to think about what is there to see out there and what each one is telling you! Envision the poem, and let yourself see the answers to your own thoughts of these pieces of artworks.

Criminals walk the streets as their innocent victims suffer. The police arrive just in time to clean up the mess, and the legal system often prevents them from even doing that. In a world descending quickly into moral depravity, it seems that Evil has won. After a botched arrest attempt, Detective Debbie Mason's life begins spiraling out of control, forcing her to question whether fighting crime at all is worth the effort. The only thing holding her together is the support from the other officers who treat her like family. But even with the entire department looking out for her, nothing could prepare Debbie for the arrival of Garrett Carmichael, a stone-cold killer sent on a mission of mass homicide by his mysterious employer.

Book Summary:

Something in Lavender, California is waking up. Rituals not properly completed for centuries are coming together. Nothing is what it seems. When Nick Leatherman, his girlfriend Ruthie, and their buddies Flash and Weasel invade Shady Grove Cemetery for a “ghost hunt” on their way home from a concert, they are drawn into a web of darkness and intrigue that threatens to consume them. Nick and Ruthie witness a gruesome murder, and Nick’s pocketknife shows up at the crime scene the next morning. Nick has had problems in the past, and Inspector Kendall Straker remembers. He remembers Ned Leatherman, Nick’s alcoholic step-father as well, and he doesn’t believe the boy is a killer. The problem is that the knife - emblazoned with the name of the band Maelstrom - is the only clue he has. Horace Goldbough is the local pastor. He’s built a huge following and a beautiful church, but there are things about the good reverend that the town doesn’t know. In particular there is his relationship with a dark woman named Beauchane, and a certain book he keeps hidden from the world. With local reporters, and a television talk-show host hounding his every step, Straker attempts to unravel the series of grisly killings terrorizing Lavender, while simultaneously protecting Nick. Nick, in the meantime, has begun his own investigation, feeling trapped and needing to clear his name. Ritual words are being spoken, and a power that has been denied access to the Earth for centuries is poised to strike. The clock is ticking. Can Straker, Nick, and Maelstrom find the answer to the killings and put an end to them before the final ritual takes place, or will a horror be unleashed on the unsuspecting town of Lavender beyond their comprehension?

Book Summary:

From the author of The Scarlet Letter: The thrilling tale of three American artists whose search for artistic inspiration leads to romance and murder. The sculpture galleries and classical architecture of nineteenth-century Rome set the stage for Nathaniel Hawthorne’s gothic romance The Marble Faun. While touring the Eternal City in search of inspiration and authentic beauty, American artists Miriam, Hilda, and Kenyon soon discover that their Italian companion, Donatello—charming and in love with Miriam—bears a striking resemblance to the marble Faun of Praxiteles. But for Miriam, their carefree pursuit is also an escape from a dark past. And when a mysterious man appears, trailing the friends’ path and tormenting Miriam, the group’s travels take a sinister turn. The first novel to explore the effects of European sensibilities on American values, The Marble Faun anticipated the genre of travel novels later exemplified by The Portrait of a Lady by Henry James and The Innocents Abroad by Mark Twain. Vividly evoking the great works of art and architecture in Rome, it also found favor as an unlikely guidebook for many Victorian tourists. James Russell Lowell said: “The nineteenth century has produced no more purely original writer than Mr. Hawthorne.” Here, the author of The House of the Seven Gables offers an unforgettable and suspenseful tale.

Book Summary:

Public sociology—an approach to sociology that aims to communicate with and actively engage wider audiences—has been one of the most widely discussed topics in the discipline in recent years. The Handbook of Public Sociology presents a comprehensive look at every facet of public sociology in theory and practice. It pays particular attention to how public sociology can complement more traditional types of sociological practice to advance both the analytical power of the discipline and its ability to benefit society. The volume features contributions from a stellar list of authors, including several past presidents of the American Sociological Association such as Michael Burawoy, a leading proponent of public sociology. The first two sections of the Handbook of Public Sociology look at public sociology in relation to the other three types of practice—professional, policy, and critical—with an emphasis on integrating the four types into a holistic model of theory and practice. Subsequent sections focus on issues like teaching public sociology at various levels, case studies in the application of public sociology, and the role of public sociology in special fields in the discipline. The concluding chapter by Michael Burawoy, a past president of the American Sociological Association and a leading proponent of public sociology, addresses current debates surrounding public sociology and presents a constructive vision for the future that embraces and improves upon all four types of sociology. The Handbook of Public Sociology with its examination not only of public sociology but also of how it can enhance and complement other types of practice, transcends differences in the field and will appeal to a wide range of academics, students, and practitioners.

Book Summary:

The Silent Voice of Grief is a collection of free verse poetry and prose that chronicles the spiritual journey of grief and sorrow after the death of a loved one. The poems were written during a two-year span after the death of the author’s son, as a way to turn grief and sorrow into acquiescence and loving remembrance. Nineteen years later, Hernon is finally ready to release this deeply personal work into the world. She hopes that other parents who have lost a child to death—from addiction or other causes—may find solace and understanding in the lines of this work. The depth of sadness that one feels after loss is not often understood by those who stand outside the tragedy, and there is comfort to be had in seeing those experiences reflected in the written word.

Book Summary:

50 YEARS OF SPORT AS SEEN BY THE CHAMPION OF ALL SPORTS WRITERS ‘This isn’t, praise be, a formal book. It is no literary exercise in balanced sentences and the painfully selected word. This is Grant Rice talking, rambling happily along, tell again in his wonderful way the wonderful stories he loved to tell. ‘They are great tales of men and deeds, told with affection and warmth and gentle humour. Yet it isn’t the stories of the great which make this a great book. It’s the way Granny himself shines through the hurrying pages, his wisdom, his kindness, his faith. He wrote of men he loved and deeds he admired and never knew how much bigger he was than his finest hero.’—Red Smith, N.Y. Herald Tribune Book Review ‘THE TUMULT AND THE SHOUTING is Grantland Rice as we of the Fourth Estate knew and loved him for so many years. The book is a must, especially for the male animals in every American family.’—Ed Sullivan ‘THE TUMULT AND THE SHOUTING is the ‘living’ Grantland Rice I knew and loved...I can’t think of a finer present to anyone who loves sport—or even loves good writing.’—Bill Cunningham, The Boston Herald ‘Folded into THE TUMULT AND THE SHOUTING are some of Granny’s verses. About sports and war and loved ones. About all the things that were dear to his great heart. Buy it for yourself. Buy it for your friends. Buy it for your enemies, the bums, who on reading it will learn, maybe for the first time, what it means to be a right guy.’—Frank Graham, N.Y. Journal American ‘Rice was the champion writer and the champion of sports writers. He ranked at the top of his profession for half a century and THE TUMULT AND THE SHOUTING is his final contribution to the sports literature of his native land.’—Harry Salsinger, Detroit (Mich.)

Book Summary:

“Perfection is a rare accomplishment, particularly in American poetry, and the perfection of much of Hollander’s work makes it essential reading for anyone who genuinely cares for the craft of poetry. But in our fallen world we seem fated to value power of perfection, and John Hollander’s poetry has shown a visionary power just often enough to secure him a place as one of the major figures of our moment.” Vernon Shetley, The New Republic

Book Summary:

Boats and life This is an unforgettable collection of ninety short tales about the boating Matthew Goldman has done in his life—in sailboats, canoes, rowboats, and other floating craft. All these memoirs deal with the water—from the puddle to the sea. They wander, as reflective as a sandy-bottomed brook. They linger, as wistful as an idle boat in summer. They revel, as jubilant as broaching porpoises. Who will want to read about Constant Waterman? Anyone who’s ever paused to watch a water strider; anyone who’s ever stood and listened to the sea; anyone who leans when they see a sloop heel; anyone who hopes to find a message in a bottle. Here is that message. Unfold it carefully, read it aloud. Read about boats; read about passages; read about islands; read about the rain. Learn about a murder in the woods by the river; learn about restoring a wooden boat. Hear about sailors, boat builders, ferrymen; hear about canoeing amid the marshes. The best part about it? You don’t have to spend your time sanding and varnishing. You don’t need to don any foul weather gear. You don’t need to know a bowline from a boom vang, or know how to pole a canoe. Here is the world of Constant Waterman: wry, introspective, intimate, impassioned. Turn another page. You may find a lighthouse, you may find a swan. You’ll hear the hoarse cadence of the sea grinding shingle, the wrinkling song of a stream through the forest, the complaint of the wind in your standing rigging. Listen. *Includes 50 beautiful pen-and-ink drawings by the author. *

Book Summary:

In this book, I have tried very hard to write from the heart. My heart has been eternally gripped by the awesome power of the cross for it was Jesus who made the greatest sacrifice for the sake of humanity. While working on this book, I lost my seven-year-old godson to a rare malady. From a broken heart, I penned three poems in memory of this very special young man who displayed remarkable courage under such adverse circumstances. I was deeply touched by his family's pain. In all that pain, the cross spoke loudly and meaningfully to our hearts. The commitment of this young mother to her son's well-being during this painful ordeal moved me beyond words. She was held up by the mighty hand of God. I am hoping that certain poems will bring solace to all those who have lost a loved one. Because of Christ's encounter with the cross, we are gifted with interminable possibilities. I am able to look beyond my circumstances and experience a higher level of spiritual awakening. This has led me to a place where I spend more time just marveling at the beauty all around us. I am acquiring a deeper appreciation for the earth and its long-term existence. I feel that we all need to exercise more responsible stewardship of God's creation. I am hoping that this book will serve as a constant reminder to all those who have undergone painful experiences that the cross that holds and releases my life's greatest mystery is the same cross that can give your life its greatest victory.

Wandering Mind and Metaphysical Thoughts

Book Summary:

Gao Xingjian does not write many poems, but the ones he has written are real gems; they are snippets of his reflective moods. To those of us who know the man, he is poetry incarnate, with the essential purity and density of a good poem. The present collection, his first and only poetry anthology in English translation, affords insights into Gao's philosophy of freedom and the independence of spirit, and elucidates his ideas as a novelist, dramatist and painter. Modern art, claims Gao, is at a crisis point, under attack from all sides by onslaughts coming especially from politics and the marketplace, which results in what he calls the "annihilation" of beauty. We see Gao Xingjian as a natural, warm, and insightful thinker capable of grace, beauty, and his own brand of esoteric wisdom, at times almost honest to a fault but not without a touch of humor and wittiness. A riveting and compulsive read.
