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. He has been the community's choice for various festivities, with no barriers on race, ethnicity, or age. 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.

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.

In the tradition of the old "Ace Doubles" two-in-one books (flip one over to read the second title)--here is the eighth Wildside Double. THREE TALES OF OMNE: A COMPANION TO WORDSMITH, by Michael R. Collings This is Omne, a world enveloped by perpetual clouds, without metals, machines, or technology, whose people harbor the secrets of an unimaginable power for destruction--or redemption. But--before it became Omne, it was Colony, home of a small group of refugees from Earth, struggling to survive on a new planet and understand its rules, unaware of their gradual transformation into something no longer quite human. This is the story of how it all began! THE ELDER OF DAYS: TALES OF THE ELDERS, by Robert Reginald They hide among us, these near-immortals, and they go by names like William Shakespeare and John Donne and Napoleon Bonaparte. They're immune to most diseases, heal rapidly from injury, and age so slowly that their life-spans are encompassed by the passage of millennia. These are The Elders. In "Katydid," Jack must penetrate the mystery of a decaying trolley car and the curious 1920s photo album secreted within. A statistical reporting anomaly for "Eldering," a forgotten town tucked away in the Cumberland Mountains, prompts a dying census worker to investigate. Abused wife Jewel-Rose can only find the "chaud" in the "Boneyard" just outside her small Montana town. Time traveler Pat Wardon is determined upon "Saving Jane Austen"--whether she wants to be saved or not! Great romantic fantasy stories.

This novel consists of three separate stories from widely different periods of time. The first is set in ancient India, in the fictional kingdom of Thaneshwar whose nobility is engaged in advancing altruistic living for its citizens but faces an existential threat from a sinister adversary, whose defeat is the protagonist’s main task. The second takes place in the near contemporary India of the 1970s where a young woman civil servant appears in a district for her training and is immediately immersed in its difficult problems and dangerous and volatile environment. The backdrop of the last is the future India of the 2050s where a Japanese woman undertakes a journey to India across the Himalayas in pursuit of both a public mission for peace in Asia as well as a secret personal quest. The three stories deal with the similarity of choices faced by humanity in every epoch and age that requires resolution according to its best principled judgments and prevailing values and philosophies. The stories also discuss the continuing quest of individuals over the ages to overcome their fragile existence by immersing themselves in strengthening the future of humankind.

But when her presence is discovered by a shadowy group of Russians secretly mining the area, she needs a way out. Whom can I trust? becomes the question, and her life depends on making the right decision. THE DEVIL’S GOLD Prequel to The Jefferson Key For eight years he’s been plotting, waiting, scheming to kill Federal agents Christopher Combs and Cotton Malone, whom he blames for the loss of his career. But as rogue agent Jonathan Wyatt prepares for a final confrontation in a remote South American village, he makes a discovery that stretches back to the horrors of World War II, to the astounding secret of a child’s birth, to Martin Bormann and Eva Braun—and to a fortune in lost gold. THE ADMIRAL’S MARK Prequel to The Columbus Affair Cotton Malone never cared for the shady dealings of his brother-in-law, Scott Brown. But after Scott dies while scuba diving, Malone heads to Haiti where he learns that, beneath the crystal clear waters, his brother-in-law had found the sunken wreckage of the Santa Maria, the fabled flagship of Christopher Columbus. Setting out to piece together what happened, Malone quickly realizes that he’s not the only man there with questions—and that he’ll have to fight just to get out of Haiti alive.
