Flaschenpost war Adornos resignative Metapher aus dem Jahr 1940 für die eingebüßte Wirkungsmacht der Kritischen Theorie im Exil. Echos einer Flasche heißt für Kluge die bescheidene Optik – etwas indirekt im Glassplitter sehen – womit er wirksame Perspektiven im globalisierten 21. Jahrhundert sucht. Der zweite Band des Kluge-Jahrbuchs widmet sich einerseits Kluges theoretischer Verwandlung am Beispiel seiner Theoriearbeit mit Oskar Negt und andererseits den multimedialen Sichtweisen, die nicht nur seine »Haltung der Bescheidenheit« zum Ausdruck bringen, sondern auch seine theoretischen Wurzeln offenlegen.

As a child, Nathaniel Leone watched one of the most important events in human history. Creatures of legend were revealed to the world as more than just fairy tales. Vampires, Werewolves, Elves, and countless other entities came out of the shadows united as “Alters” – an offshoot of humanity long hiding from the rest of the world. Together, the Alters founded a new nation, “Argyre”, and declared their intention to take their place in society once and for all. The world was different now, everything changed, and Nate’s life had to change with it. Now a rookie in the Cascadia branch of the Alter Control Task Force, Nate works for the very people who shook up the world. Tasked with policing superhuman creatures and the humans who interact with them, Nate and the other agents of the ACTF stand between the two sides on Argyre’s behalf so that other governments won’t do worse. Unfortunately, that’s easier said than done – not even crime is exactly the same since the reveal. Finding evidence of a new Alter drug ring, Nate gets dragged into a more dangerous situation than he imagined. With the evidence bringing up more questions than answers and witnesses not providing much to go on, he soon discovers that his suspect might be more than a drug dealer. They may be a murderer, a Shapeshifter, and closer than he thinks.

We all possess snapshots in time in our hearts and minds—images and memories that draw us back to our childhoods. In this collection of poetry and short stories, author David L. Dougherty combines whimsical make-believe with some truths about childhood experiences both tragic and lighthearted. Dougherty recalls looking through the shard of glass from the kitchen door of his boyhood home. He shares a boy’s love for adventure and a mature man’s appreciation of nature’s beauty. He also explores the heartfelt connection that he made while walking the sod of Ireland, the land of his ancestors, and standing at the O’Dougherty castle bridge in Buncrana, Ireland. Combining whimsy and nostalgia, My Shard of Glass offers an exploration in verse of nature, childhood, and times gone by. Wish Two young boys, sitting on the bank, watching the big rigs run. One said, “I wish we were old enough for that kind of fun.” The driver saw the boys waving, and with a grin, said to his partner, “I wish we were on that bank again.”

The passing of time can be as meaningful, or as meaning less as a glimmer of water, or as painful as a SHARD OF GLASS. No matter what period it illuminates, and briefly washes over, in its haste to tell yet another story, as timeless as history itself, it casts its magic. Such is the story of Zac Guthrie, an Anglo- American youngster, afflicted by both phenomena. Is it a gift or a curse he possesses, which sends him off into the realms of the past? It goes where it wills, with him enchained. Go with him. Don’t try to understand the logic, for there is none. It is as it is.

All of us can walk barefoot across yards of broken glass without the slightest injury. But few of us believe that we can. Walking on broken glass is a powerful physical metaphor for shattering the shackles of apprehension that grip us all when we try something new. John Timperley walks with bare feet on 2000 shards of glass to demonstrate conclusively that a focused mind, creativity, willingness to try and commitment to see it through can allow us all to achieve the apparently impossible. In Barefoot on Broken Glass Timperley reveals the secrets of personal and organizational success. Anything is possible if we adapt to (or create) change and unleash the full potential of the people around us by inspiring them to focus on a believable vision with passion, commitment and urgency. Barefoot on Broken Glass is the book we need in an age when the pace of change has never been faster, where pressure to perform has never been greater, and where stress related illnesses have rocketed to levels that are shocking the medical profession. By rising above the seeming chaos and by using our minds in a more productive and creative way we can perform at higher levels than ever before.
