It is both a meditation on the Song of Solomon, the Song of Songs and a celebration, a rumination on the love of the ancient Persian poet and Sufi mystic Rumi for the Divine in ways that bridge divides between faiths as the realization of the desire of nations.

Finally it is the time for Kusac and his allies to deal with the threat of the warrior Valtegans on their world of M’zull. Will he work to rehabilitate them using tools given him by the Touiban scientists, or will his calling as the Avatar of Justice take over and destroy all of his foes? Isolated on M’zull, Kusac—with his clan of Sholans and Humans—works to destabilize the Valtegan society, posing as the avenging spirit of the long-dead, legendary hero Zsadhi.

His mission will take Kusac and his clan into mortal danger. Even his young son Shaidan, supposedly safe on a far-distant world, has, unbeknownst to his father, become bound up in the whole plan to destroy the martial spirit of the M’zullians. Can Kusac navigate these dangerous waters and bring all of his family safely home while at the same time ending the M’zullian threat forever? Or will the price of victory prove too great even for the Avatar of Justice?

Ingrid Lundström, the daughter of a wealthy Swedish banker, has been a global roamer since she left school. An iconic blond, she resembles Agnetha Fältskog of Abba fame. These attributes dominate her existence, especially when she moves to Papua New Guinea, to work. Because of her connection to wealth, she becomes the target of criminals. Because of her appearance, she attracts special interest at every turn. When aspiring teacher Michael Mannion hears about Ingrid’s fate at the hands of kidnappers, he travels to Papua New Guinea to track her down and attempt a rescue. However, he encounters many surprises. What he doesn’t know is that he’s as much the problem as the solution. They say love conquers all, but in a country where it’s hard to separate fact from fiction, the serious from the lighthearted, and good guys from bad guys, love may not be enough. For Ingrid and Michael, love is their path to salvation but this path takes them on a different and sometimes unpredictable adventure.

Scrutinising Sterne's fiction through a book history lens, Helen Williams creates novel readings of his work based on meticulous examination of its material and bibliographical conditions. Alongside multiple editions and manuscripts of Sterne's own letters and works, a panorama of interdisciplinary sources are explored, including dance manuals, letter-writing handbooks, newspaper advertisements, medical pamphlets and disposable packaging. For the first time, this wealth of previously overlooked material is critically analysed in relation to the design history of Tristram Shandy, conceptualising the eighteenth-century novel as an artefact that developed in close conjunction with other media. In examining the complex interrelation between a period's literature and the print matter of everyday life, this study sheds new light on Sterne and eighteenth-century literature by re-defining the origins of his work and of the eighteenth-century novel more broadly, whilst introducing readers to diverse print cultural forms and their production histories.

This book is a result of more than five years of keen observations and analysis followed by two years of experimentation. It is NOT ANOTHER BOOK ON CURSIVE WRITING. Normal writing is not cursive writing. It does not have well set rules for definite shapes of alphabets and strokes. It is flexible and yet has an identity, smooth flow, rhythm and legibility. This book is for making normal handwriting faster. It also elaborates the techniques of inceasing and decreasing the size of handwritten alphabets, taking notes with faster speed and logical changes in connective strokes. The seventeen chapters of the book cover almost everything required for legible, fast and beautiful handwriting. The techniques given in the book are equally useful for students of all age groups, teachers and parents.

A sweeping account of imprisonment--in time, in language, and in a divided country--from Korea's most acclaimed novelist In 1993, writer and democracy activist Hwang Sok-yong was sentenced to five years in the Seoul Detention Center upon his return to South Korea from North Korea, the country he had fled with his family as a child at the start of the Korean War. Already a dissident writer well-known for his part in the democracy movement of the 1980s, Hwang's imprisonment forced him to consider the many prisons to which he was subject--of thought, of writing, of Cold War nations, of the heart. In this capacious memoir, Hwang moves between his imprisonment and his life--as a boy in Pyongyang, as a young activist protesting South Korea's military dictatorships, as a soldier in the Vietnam War, as a dissident writer first traveling abroad--and in so doing, narrates the dramatic revolutions and transformations of one life and of Korean society during the twentieth century.

While the worship of Satya Pīr is the ostensible motivation for the tales, they really demonstrate his miraculous powers, which authenticate him as a legitimate object of worship.

With no particular rhyme or reason to its organization, Haszto puts together another collection so deep in feeling and intense in thought that 'Pieces III' would fit perfectly with its predecessors, 'Pieces of the Heart' and 'Pieces of the Heart II'. Once again, as is with life, anything thing can happen at any time, and that continues to be the theme running through the 'Pieces' books. All too often, life is improvised, feelings blossom, sometimes to extremes, as events occur in our everyday lives. Enter the mind of this author and prepare to take a long ride into his rollercoaster-like imagination and perception-filled world. A peek will be all that's needed, as any one of the dozens of creative poems will hook the reader into full indulgence. Enjoy!
