Eliot Dean’s life as a professor of English and Economics at the University of St Gallen is given a shock when he begins an affair with one of his students, seventeen-year-old Evie Muller, who believes one day that Eliot will be married. Eliot’s wife, Sandra, is an attractive woman, and Eliot has no intention of leaving her, especially as they have two children, thirteen-year-old Adam and ten-year-old Ilsa. Eliot’s boss, Gustav Schaefer, has always had some hold over Eliot’s life, since Eliot’s grandfather who was Gustav’s best friend, died in mysterious circumstances many years before. Although the death was investigated by the police, and accidental death was the verdict, there has always been a suspicion hanging over Eliot, who was present on the day his grandfather died in the cellar of the infamous Werdenburg castle. Evie invites Eliot to look into her background, having wondered what secrets her parents were keeping from her. Eliot complies and goes to Reichenau with Evie to look up her family history. They discover that her parents are not her real family, and that Evie is in fact Jewish of a mother who died in the Holocaust, and a father with whom may have had association with Hitler’s war machine. This discovery seemingly - changes everything. Gustav has his own demons to deal with and the police chief, Ernst Weber, who had first been on the scene when grandfather Dean died, finds out that Gustav also has a dubious past, and further investigations reveal that grandfather Dean may have discovered the secret past of his then good friend Gustav Schaefer. To which leaves Ernst Weber with a possible motive for murder. Driven by desire and the ensuing circumstances, with which he finds himself, and a worsening health condition, Eliot realizes things are spiraling out of control and things take a further sinister turn when his wife, Sandra, discovers the affair that her husband refuses to relinquish. With Eliot now suffering from pressures at work, the ensuing difficult situation between himself and Evie, and signs of schizophrenia - can he possibly find an answer to his problems or better still, a way out?

“For classic fantasy, there is no better author” (Jennifer Roberson) than Dennis L. McKiernan, who created the legendary realm of Mithgar. Now the national bestselling author of Dragondoom returns to his most beloved fictional world to reveal the untold history of the rightful heir to the kingdom—the War of the Usurper.... For more than a hundred years, a bitter dispute over how the High King had been selected simmered in the dark halls of the royal family whose line had not been chosen. They held fast to their anger and bitterness through generations. Finally one of their sons, Arkov of Garia, seized the throne through treachery and by force of arms, claiming it as rightfully his. But in his haste to see the king and queen slain, Arkov failed to confirm the death of the young prince, Reyer, who was spirited away to safety. On a distant and mysterious island ruled by elves, where he was raised and trained by a trusted Captain of the slain High King, Reyer has now come of age. He has learned of his lineage—and those loyal to the bloodline of the true High King have rallied to his side. And though the forces of his enemy are far superior, Reyer will gather an army and lead them against the Usurper—to gain back the crown and kingdom stolen from him and to restore Mithgar to its rightful rule. From the Hardcover edition.

Post-Production and the Invisible Revolution of Filmmaking studies the discourses surrounding post-production, as well as the aesthetic effects of its introduction during the 1920s and 1930s, by exploring the philosophies and issues faced by practitioners during this transitional, transformative period. The introduction of post-production during the transition from silent cinema to the synchronized sound era in the 1920s American studio system resulted in what has been a previously unheralded and invisible revolution in filmmaking. Thereafter, a film no longer arose from a live and variable combination of audio and visual in the theater, as occurred during the silent film era, where each exhibition was a singular event. The new system of post-production effectively shifted control of a film’s final form from the theater to the editing room. With this new process, filmmakers could obtain and manipulate an array of audio elements and manufacture a permanent soundtrack. This transition made possible a product that could be easily mass-produced, serving both to transform and homogenize film presentation, fundamentally creating a new art form. With detailed research and analysis and nearly 50 illustrations, this book is the ideal resource for students and researchers of film history and post-production.

Unfortunately the near-magical and awesome science of the Others does not give up its secrets easily and whats worse, Bishop must journey to the very heart of Ikonia wherein awaits an even greater threat, a threat out of time itself, and with nothing but a hated reptilian Eligor, and an ill-bred Wolf-bird for company.
