This Young Monster is a hallucinatory celebration of artists who raise hell, transform their bodies, anger their elders and show their audience dark, disturbing things. What does it mean to be a freak? Why might we be wise to think of the present as a time of monstrosity? And how does the concept of the monster irradiate our thinking about queerness, disability, children and adolescents? From Twin Peaks to Leigh Bowery, Harmony Korine to Alice in Wonderland, This Young Monster gets high on a whole range of riotous art as its voice and form shape-shift, all in the name of dealing with the strange wonders of what Nabokov once called 'monsterhood'. Ready or not, here they come...

Welcome to the Second Evolution. Richard Sessions, M.D. has taken the wonder of Genetic Engineering to its ultimate limit.Due to his brilliance, no longer must a fetus pass through a womans Pelvic Brim, which has limited the size of the Human Brain for 25 million years. He has also made obsolete the contributions of a potential Father. The Fathers genetic contribution has now been replaced with Syntail, a mass-produced synthetic sperm. Through this knowledge, the two genetic offspring of the Second Evolution, Glass and Echo, have arrived. These twin offspring of this fateful combination alone possess the Third Cerebral Hemisphere, which they use to supply Dr. Sessions with new and terrible miracles. But the Doctor receives a deadly omen one night; he receives the Death List, the list that the Grim Reaper uses to kill all the people who are slated to die each day. Dr. Sessions sees his own name on this portentous list and formulates a plan to stop the Grim Reaper from executing his obligations and thereby attempts to lengthen his stay on this lonely planet. A supernatural battle begins with the Grim Reapers attempt to reconstruct the Life Thread; the slender filament that the Grim Reapers massive Scythe severs to terminate his victims. Alexandra Morrow, a lawyer whose name is just before Dr. Sessions on the Death List, is caught in between these two combatants in a surreal plan of Deception, Terror, and Murder. Who will win&?

Welcome to the Essential Novelists book series, were we present to you the best works of remarkable authors. For this book, the literary critic August Nemo has chosen the two most important and meaningful novels of Jane Barker which are The Amours of Bosvil and Galesia, and Exilius. Jane Barker, who wrote during the late seventeenth and early eighteenth century, shows remarkable daring and originality both as a poet and as a writer of prose fiction. Critical attention to her as a proto-feminist has recently been joined by attention to the political (Catholic and Jacobite) slant of her writings. From her debut as a coterie writer circulating her poems among a group of admiring male friends, Jane Barker became a denizen of the literary marketplace and a voice both for the silent elements in women's experience and for the silenced Catholic and Jacobite elements in national life. Novels selected for this book: - The Amours of Bosvil and Galesia - ExiliusThis is one of many books in the series Essential Novelists.

As a police officer in pre-war colonial Hong Kong, George Wright-Nooth was studying for his Chinese language exams when the Japanese invaded on Christmas Day, 1941. He spent the next four years incarcerated in the Japanese Military Internment Camp at Stanley. Daily life became marked by hunger and appalling suffering at the hands of the guards. He regularly witnessed death and torture, and his account of a multiple execution by sword is as moving and horrific as anything one is ever likely to read. While many of his fellow prisoners cracked beneath the terror of such atrocities, the author repaid such treatment with subversive activities, such as the running of secret radios, and the smuggling of food and messages to and from some of those held by the dreaded Japanese Gendarmerie. Perhaps most remarkably of all, the author kept a diary throughout his incarceration which, miraculously, was never discovered by his captors.

In David Weber's How Firm a Foundation, the fifth book in the Safehold series, the Charisian Empire, born in war, has always known it must fight for its very survival. What most of its subjects don't know even now, however, is how much more it's fighting for. Emperor Cayleb, Empress Sharleyan, Merlin Athrawes, and their innermost circle of most trusted advisers do know. And because they do, they know the penalty if they lose will be far worse than their own deaths and the destruction of all they know and love. For five years, Charis has survived all the Church of God Awaiting and the corrupt men who control it have thrown at the island empire. The price has been high and paid in blood. Despite its chain of hard-fought naval victories, Charis is still on the defensive. It can hold its own at sea, but if it is to survive, it must defeat the Church upon its own ground. Yet how does it invade the mainland and take the war to a foe whose population outnumbers its own fifteen to one? How does it prevent that massive opponent from rebuilding its fleets and attacking yet again? Charis has no answer to those questions, but needs to find one...quickly. The Inquisition's brutal torture and hideous executions are claiming more and more innocent lives. Its agents are fomenting rebellion against the only mainland realms sympathetic to Charis. Religious terrorists have been dispatched to wreak havoc against the Empire's subjects. Assassins stalk the Emperor and Empress, their allies and advisers, and an innocent young boy, not yet eleven years old, whose father has already been murdered. And Merlin Athrawes, the cybernetic avatar of a young woman a thousand years dead, has finally learned what sleeps beneath the far-off Temple in the Church of God Awaiting's city of Zion. The men and women fighting for human freedom and tolerance have built a foundation for their struggle in the Empire of Charis with their own blood, but will that foundation be firm enough to survive?
