FOLK LITERATURE / STORYTELLING"I believe in the complexity of the human story, and that there's no way you can tell that story in one way and say, this is it. Always, there will be someone who can tell it differently depending on where they are standing. This is the way I think the world's stories should be told, from many different perspectives." Chinua AchebeTaking his cue from another one of his favored writers, the late Chinua Achebe whom he also got to see perform his works at Temple University in Philadelphia, PA, author J'miah Nabawi presents his series of Three Tales Tall are explorations of languages and landscapes that traverse the world of humanity. This first volume also reflects the author's commitment to perpetuate the works of art and artists through the ages of time, from antiquity through our contemporary times of both local and international artists from all walks of life.Known for his brand of engaging spontaneity during his storytelling performances, J'miah Nabawi takes the same improvisational liberties with these literary versions of the stories and folktales he often performs in spoken word. With Sun and Moon and Life coming out of the African American oral traditions experience, Justice Prevails is based on an Ethiopian folktale.ABOUT THE AUTHORA native of Philadelphia, PA, J'miah Nabawi is an award winning, multi-faceted performance storyteller. For more than thirty years now, has presented arts-in-education programs, residencies and workshops to a variety of audiences from inner-city urban, rural, and immigrant communities. J'miah Nabawi's traditional arts programming reflects the story-dance-musical storytelling drama of Africa and its Diaspora. He also tells and adapt stories from around the world. Through collaborations and corporate sponsorships, J'miah Nabawi has often served as Cultural Ambassador, Program Host for community programs and as Parent Engagement Facilitator at various venues presenting cultural entertainment for family-friendly audiences. Bilingual in Spanish and a polyglot of sorts, J'miah Nabawi has shared his brand of high-spirited interactive storytelling across the U.S. and Mexico in schools, museums, colleges and universities, and at storytelling festivals and conferences. Presently a Traditional Roster Artist with Georgia Council for the Arts and South Carolina Arts Commission, J'miah Nabawi has been on roster with Massachusetts Cultural Arts, the Pennsylvania Arts Councils and has received National Endowment for the Arts support for various community projects and public programming."Mr. Nabawi is one of Savannah's most visible and favored storytellers.

Whether it is through the Live Oak Public Libraries, The Telfair Museum, local churches, schools, universities, the leadership and service that he continues to provide through his profession is legendary here amongst Savannahians."

Wesleyan University Press has made a significant commitment to the publication of the work of Samuel R. Delany, including this recent fiction, now available in paperback. The three long stories collected in Atlantis: three tales -- "Atlantis: Model 1924," "Erik, Gwen, and D. H. Lawrence's Aesthetic of Unrectified Feeling," and "Citre et Trans" -- explore problems of memory, history, and transgression. Winner of both the Hugo and Nebula awards, and Guest of Honor at the 1995 World Science Fiction Convention in Glasgow, Delany was won a broad audience among fans of postmodern fiction with his theoretically sophisticated science fiction and fantasy. The stories of Atlantis: three tales are not SF, yet Locus, the trade publication of the science fiction field, notes that the title story "has an odd, unsettling power not usually associated with mainstream fiction." A writer whose audience extends across and beyond science fiction, black, gay, postmodern, and academic constituencies, Delany is finally beginning to achieve the broader recognition he deserves.

We think of Zeus as the mightiest god of Greece, accompanied by his servants Force, Might and Victory,—the Cloud-gatherer, the Rain-giver, the Thunderer, the Lightning-hurler, the Sender of Prodigies, the Guider of Stars, the Ruler of other gods and men, whom even Poseidon the Earth-shaker must obey. The very name reverberates with majesty, power, dominion. But the beginnings of this vast deity were in darkness and danger. True, the reign of his father Kronos was that Golden Age when, in the fresh morning of the world, "Heat and Cold were not yet at strife, the Seasons had not begun their mystic dance, and one mild and equable climate stretched from pole to pole; when the trees bore fruit and the vine her purple clusters all the year, and honey-dew dripped from the laurel and juniper which are now so bitter; when flowers of every hue filled the air with perpetual fragrance, the lion gambolled with the kid, and the unfanged serpent was as harmless as the dove"; when over-curious Pandora not yet having released her boxful of ills, men had neither care nor sickness nor old age, but, after centuries of blissful calm, faded like flowers and became kindly spirit-guardians of their successors. Yet amid this charming serenity Kronos could never forget the curse of his father Uranus whom he had overthrown, and the prophecy that he himself should in his turn be cast down by his own children. "Wherefore being resolved to defeat that prophecy, he swallowed each child his wife Rhea brought forth, as soon as it was born. When Rhea had thus lost five babes,—Hestia, Demeter, Hera, Hades and Poseidon—and knew herself about to bear yet another, she made her prayer to Uranus her ancient sire, imploring counsel and aid.

These early works by Robert E. Howard were originally published in the early 20th century and we are now republishing them with a brand new introductory biography. 'Three Tales of Solomon Kane' is a compilation of Howard's short stories in the Solomon Kane series and include 'Skulls in the Stars', 'Rattle of Bones', and 'Red Shadows'. 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.
