In his first work written directly for the stage, the author of The Kiss of the Spider Woman creates a hilarious and shocking clash of desire and reality. Readers accustomed to Puig's dramatic novels will find in Under a Mantle of Stars a two-act drama that reads like a novella. Into the home of a bourgeois family come two strangers on their way to a masquerade ball. Within moments, the masters of the house take their visitors for long-dead friends, the sumptuous couple turns out to be a pair of jewel thieves fleeing the police, and the daughter is trapped in a melodramatic farce in which she takes the thief to be her ex-fiance while her mother believes him to be the lover she has waited for these past twenty years. Manuel Puig first gained international recognition with his novel, Betrayed by Rita Hayworth, and went on to further fame and critical acclaim with The Kiss of the Spiderwoman. Under a Mantle of Stars is his first play written directly for the stage as well as the first to be published in English. According to the New York Times, Puig is "one of the most consistently interesting . . . [authors] . . . to have emerged anywhere during the past ten years." Newsweek has said that Puig is "both a funny writer and a tenderly elegiac one." And the Washington Post has commented that "his mastery of plot, counterplot, the characters' scheming, his own, . . . lifts Puig into the circle of his peers," such as Borges and Garcia Marquez. "Ronald Christ's translation is an authentic and careful rendering of this original work. The English version clearly replicates Puig's idiosyncratic forms of speech, characterization, and stage direction. Christ has created a script that is highly theatrical, interesting, and playable in English. . . . [ Under a Mantle of Stars ] stands on its own merits . . . [it] leaves us asking for more Puig as playwright and more Ronald Christ as translator." - Rodney Carl Reading, Latin American Theater Review

Mageworlds Book One: The war with the Mageworlds is over. Now it's time for the real struggle to begin. Freebooter at heart, spacer by trade, Beka Rosselin-Metadi doesn't want to hear about her father whose rugged generalship held back the Mageworlds--or her highborn mother whose leadership has held the galaxy together ever since. Beka pilots spacecraft--as far from her famous family as possible, thanks very much. Then Beka's mother is assassinated on the Senate floor, and her father offers her Warhammer, prize ship from his own freebooting youth--if she'll use it to deliver the assassins to him "off the books." Looking for assassins has a tendency to make assassins look for you. In short order Beka's arranged her own very public death and adopted a new identity; now all she has to do is leave a trail of kidnappings and corpses across five star systems, and blow the roof off the strongest private fortress in the Galaxy. If her own family can just get off her case long enough...! At the Publisher's request, this title is being sold without Digital Rights Management Software (DRM) applied.

Children already know better than we do that mysticism is real and divinely simple, but they sometimes need reminding of their sacred place when facing real-life difficulties. This book is meant to inspire children (and the adults who read it with them) to remember their connection to all things light and wonderful in the universe. Jennifer Rogers has written a stunning spiritual children’s book unlike any other! While The Stars Are At Play is filled with hope, inspiration, and guidance. This book is a reminder that light is at the core of every child, and thus a source of self-worth, self-healing, and self-trust. There is no greater gift that she could share with the precious beings who will one day be the caretakers of our planet. Although my children are older, they absolutely loved it and have reread it more times than I could count. This is a must-read for every child...and a perfect book to share! —Kim O’Neill, channel, speaker, columnist, and author of How To Talk With Your Angels; Bond With Your Baby Before Birth; and The Calling: My Journey With The Angels. While The Stars Are At Play is fundamentally about the goodness of creation and is a work of spirituality that reminds us what is most important. It reminds me of Psalm 150 and the Book of Psalms in general with its words of praise. I am also reminded of a quote, attributed to mystic and Sufi poet Hafiz, about a particular star – the sun -- “Even after all this time, the sun never says to the earth, ‘you owe me.’ Look what happens with a love like that. It lights up the whole sky.” This book emphasizes all that we have been given is a gift, and that there is nothing else we should do but live lives and speak words of gratitude! —Thomas Ryan, Ph.D., Director of the Loyola Institute for Ministry, Professor of Theology and Ministry, Loyola University New Orleans

The second book in the Sands of Arawiya duology by the masterful Hafsah Faizal—the follow-up to the smash New York Times bestselling novel We Hunt the Flame. Darkness surged in his veins. Power bled from her bones. The battle on Sharr is over. The Arz has fallen. Altair may be captive, but Zafira, Nasir, and Kifah are bound for Sultan’s Keep, determined to finish the plan Altair set in motion: restoring the hearts of the Sisters of Old to the minarets of each caliphate, finally bringing magic to all of Arawiya. But they are low on resources and allies alike, and the kingdom teems with fear of the Lion of the Night’s return. As the zumra plots to overthrow Arawiya’s darkest threat, Nasir fights to command the magic in his blood. He must learn to hone his power, to wield it against not only the Lion but his father as well, trapped under the Lion’s control. Zafira battles a very different darkness festering in her through her bond with the Jawarat—it hums with voices, pushing her to the brink of sanity and to the edge of a chaos she dares not unleash. In spite of everything, Zafira and Nasir find themselves falling into a love they can’t stand to lose . . . But time is running out, and if order is to be restored, drastic sacrifices will have to be made. Lush and striking, hopeful and devastating, We Free the Stars is the masterful conclusion to the Sands of Arawiya duology by New York Times–bestselling author Hafsah Faizal.

A vivid, evocative YA lesbian romance about how the universe is full of second chances Ryann Bird dreams of traveling across the stars. But a career in space isn’t an option for a girl who lives in a trailer park on the “wrong” side of town. So Ryann becomes her circumstances and settles for acting out and skipping school to hang out with her delinquent friends. One day she meets Alexandria: a furious loner who spurns Ryann’s offer of friendship. After a horrific accident leaves Alexandria with a broken arm, the girls are brought together despite themselves—and Ryann learns her secret: Alexandria’s mother is an astronaut who volunteered for a one-way trip to the edge of the solar system. Every night without fail, Alexandria waits to catch radio signals from her mother. And now it’s up to Ryann to lift her onto the roof day after day until the silence between them grows into friendship, and eventually something more. The Weight of the Stars is the new LGBT young adult romance from K. Ancrum, written with the same style of short, micro-fiction chapters and immediacy that garnered acclaim for her debut, The Wicker King. An Imprint Book “The Weight of the Stars is one of the most gentle, gracious, and, overall, kind books that I've read all year ... It's a YA romance about girls and stars and friendship and mercy and loss and regret and what we owe each other and what we give away to lift each other up ... This book is starlight on broken concrete, it's flowers on a broken rooftop, and it's a masterpiece.” —Seanan McGuire, New York Times bestselling author of Every Heart a Doorway “As bright as it is stellar ... a story with a lush, dark atmosphere; heartbreaking circumstances; bright, new love that blossoms from ugliness; and vividly real, magnetic characters.” —Booklist (starred review) “Touches on sexual identity, friendship, nontraditional families, and the price of human space exploration. The characters' resilience and vulnerability are deftly handled ... For readers who are drawn to the unconventional, this will be a satisfying read.” —Kirkus Reviews “Their slow-burn romance ... is sweetly, devastatingly understated.” - BCCB PRAISE FOR THE WICKER KING: “Ancrum delves into the blurry space between reality and madness. A haunting and provocative read that will keep teens riveted.” —School Library Journal “Teen fans of moody psychological horror will be entranced.” —Booklist “Give this to readers who like complex, experimental fictions about intense relationships that acquire mythic resonance.” —The Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books “An eerie piece of realistic fiction whose characters revel in intense emotions.” —Kirkus Reviews “An eerie and mesmerizing thriller that questions the space where reality and perception overlap, The Wicker King is a spine-tingling read that will have you riveted.” —Caleb Roerhrig, author of Last Seen Leaving and White Rabbit
