In 2002, Vertigo/DC Comics published the first issue of Bill Willingham’s Fables. The series imagined the lives of fairy tale figures—Snow White, the Big Bad Wolf, Cinderella and the ubiquitous Prince Charming, among many others—as they made new lives for themselves in modern-day New York City, having fled their storied homeworlds following an invasion. After 150 issues and many awards, Fables concluded its run in July 2015. This study, the first about the sprawling, complex series, discusses such topics as Fables’ status as a contemporary adaptation of folk and fairy tales; its use of conventional genres like sword-and-sorcery, crime and romance; its portrayal of social and political relationships; and its self-referential moments. Providing a detailed introduction to the themes and ideas in the series, the author explores how Fables portrays redemption, the function of community, and how our hopes and fears influence our ideal of “happily ever after.”

The Gospel According to Blindboy is a surreal and genre-defying collection of short stories and visual art exploring the myths, complacencies and contradictions at the heart of modern Ireland. Covering themes ranging from love and death to sex and politics, there’s a story about a girl from Tipp being kicked out of ISIS, a van powered by Cork people’s accents and a man who drags a fridge on his back through Limerick. Whip-smart, provocative and animated by the author’s unmistakably dark wit, it is unlike anything else you will read this year. ‘Mad, wild, hysterical, and all completely under the writer’s control – this is a brilliant debut.’ Kevin Barry ‘There is genius in this book, warped genius. Like you’d expect from a man who for his day job wears a plastic bag on his head but something beyond that too. Oddly in keeping with the tradition of great Irish writers.’ Russell Brand ‘One of Ireland’s finest and most intelligent comic minds delivers stories so blisteringly funny and sharp your fingers might bleed.’ Tara Flynn ‘Essential, funny and disturbing.’ Danny Boyle

That's what fifteen-year-old Patson Moyo hears when his family arrives in the Marange diamond fields, leaving his previous life, school and friends behind with hopes for a better life.

In his monumental research in ancient sanskrit literature the author has restored gaps in lexicons and removed doubts in the later sanskrit works about the identity of a very large number of birds of the Indian sub-continent. The ancient sages of India were great lovers of nature with keen powers of observation and an extraordinary sensitivity about aninal behaviour. The Vedas Puranas, Epics and Samhitas are full of descriptions of birds, animals and plants but the exact identification of names had got lost or confounded over the centuries.
