Book Excerpt :

Alessandra is desperate to escape. Desperate to escape her stepmother, who's locked her away for a year; to escape the cloister that awaits her and the marriage plans that have been made for her; to escape the expectations that limit her and every other girl in fourteenth-century Italy. There's no tolerance in her quiet village for Alessandra and her keen intelligence and unconventional ideas. In defiant pursuit of her dreams, Alessandra undertakes an audacious quest, her bravery equaled only by the dangers she faces. Disguised and alone in a city of spies and scholars, Alessandra will find a love she could not foresee -- and an enduring fame. In this exquisite imagining of the centuries-old story of Alessandra Giliani, the world's first female anatomist, acclaimed novelist Barbara Quick gives readers the drama, romance, and rich historical detail for which she is known as she shines a light on an unforgotten -- and unforgettable -- heroine.

THE BASIS FOR THE MAJOR 6-PART HBO® DOCUMENTARY SERIES #1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER A BEST BOOK OF THE YEAR: Washington Post | Maureen Corrigan, NPR | Paste | Seattle Times | Entertainment Weekly | Esquire | Slate | Buzzfeed | Jezebel | Philadelphia Inquirer | Publishers Weekly | Kirkus Reviews | Library Journal | Bustle Winner of the Goodreads Choice Awards for Nonfiction | Anthony Award Winner | SCIBA Book Award Winner | Finalist for the Edgar Award for Best Fact Crime | Longlisted for the Carnegie Medal for Excellence The haunting true story of the elusive serial rapist turned murderer who terrorized California during the 70s and 80s, and of the gifted journalist who died tragically while investigating the case—which was solved in April 2018. The haunting true story of the elusive serial rapist turned murderer who terrorized California during the 70s and 80s, and of the gifted journalist who died tragically while investigating the case—which was solved in April 2018. Introduction by Gillian Flynn • Afterword by Patton Oswalt “A brilliant genre-buster.... Propulsive, can’t-stop-now reading.” —Stephen King For more than ten years, a mysterious and violent predator committed fifty sexual assaults in Northern California before moving south, where he perpetrated ten sadistic murders. Then he disappeared, eluding capture by multiple police forces and some of the best detectives in the area. Three decades later, Michelle McNamara, a true crime journalist who created the popular website TrueCrimeDiary.com, was determined to find the violent psychopath she called "the Golden State Killer." Michelle pored over police reports, interviewed victims, and embedded herself in the online communities that were as obsessed with the case as she was. I’ll Be Gone in the Dark—the masterpiece McNamara was writing at the time of her sudden death—offers an atmospheric snapshot of a moment in American history and a chilling account of a criminal mastermind and the wreckage he left behind. It is also a portrait of a woman’s obsession and her unflagging pursuit of the truth. Utterly original and compelling, it has been hailed as a modern true crime classic—one which fulfilled Michelle's dream: helping unmask the Golden State Killer.

Lady Amanda is tired of having both her intelligence and her work dismissed. After blackmailing her way into medical school, she catches the eye of her anatomy professor from the moment she walks into his lecture hall. Is he interested in her?

Secret government technology has been stolen from his laboratory, and a foreign spy is attempting to perfect it via a grisly procedure… using gypsies as test subjects. The last thing he needs is the distraction of a beautiful–and brilliant–new student, even if her spider could heal a deteriorating personal injury. Until her device is stolen and used in the latest murder. Lord Thornton has no option but to bring her into his laboratory as well as the investigation where they must fight their growing, yet forbidden, attraction. Bodies accumulate and fragile bonds are tested as they race across London, trying to catch the spy before it’s too late. Google Play 978-1-948359-04-7

Book Short Summary:

An overview of Mithraism, the ancient Roman mystery religion popular in the Roman Legions • Provides a comprehensive history of Mithraism, including its influence on Christianity and Islam • Includes rituals, meditations, and teaching tales for readers who wish to follow the Mithraic path • Studies the evolution and divergence of the Eastern (Persian) and Western (Roman) forms of Mithraism The Mysteries of Mithras presents a revival of the magical practices and initiatory system of Mithraism, the ancient Roman mystery religion that was immensely popular in the Roman Legions from the late second century B.C. until A.D. 400 and was taken to every corner of the Roman Empire. As the last pagan state religion in Europe, it was the most important competitor to early Christianity and heavily influenced Christian doctrine and symbolism. The parallels between Christianity and ancient Mithraism are striking--for example, the god Mithra was born of a virgin in a cave on December 25. Payam Nabarz reveals the history, origins, and spiritual and philosophical tenets of Mithraism and its connections to Christianity, Islam, and Freemasonry. He also describes the modern neo-pagan practice of Mithraism in evidence today and for readers who wish to adopt the Mithraic path, he includes seven of its initiatory rituals and meditations, as well as orations and teaching tales, that open the door to the seven Mithraic grades of passage.

To you, dear friend and reader: The sky never permanently loses its blue Nor the heart the love within you That shines out to illumine its own And shield it from the rough stone Experiences needed to round out a young life Sometimes come mixed with strife But the parent heart with love never failing Knows how to calm the waters for smoother sailing Until young lessons have been learned And expanded growth is discerned The seedling cannot remain the same It must move with life’s weather vane And learn to follow its own signature key A different pattern than the one for you or me It is love that is ever the winner For truly no one is a sinner We are all just trying to be Deep within the longing for harmony You have the magic of knowledgeable years Laced with joys, fears, and tears Which, when you become inwardly reflective Assume their proper perspective Then you can’t help but smile with tender amusement at the glorious game of life

Book Short Summary:

‘How could I have imagined so surrealist and seductive a world? One does not like the heat, yet its constancy, its all-surroundingness, is as fascinating as the smell of musk. Every moment is slow, as if under warm greenish water....’ In 1957, Page moved to Brazil with her husband, the Canadian ambassador. The hot, lush landscape was utterly immersive -- and for the next three years Page recorded her life in an intimate, vibrant, startlingly funny journal. Between her at times theatric responsibilities as the wife of an ambassador, and her futile attempts to organize the ambassador’s palatial home and staff, Page found the time to write in exquisite prose of her responses to the wildlife, the people and the colours of Brazil, in the end illuminating more of her own emotional and artistic journey than of the country itself. Accompanied by several of the illustrations Page created while on her travels, this is a fascinating, beautiful account of life in a magically unfamiliar place. Brazilian Journal is the second addition to a series of volumes to be published over the next ten years as a complement to an online hypermedia edition of the Collected Works of P.K. Page. The online edition is intended for scholarly research, while this new edition offers a beautiful text to be enjoyed by those who love and wonder at the talent of one of Canada’s greatest poets.

Book Short Summary:

In this day of technology, children can get on their electronic devices and read stories on their own. However, this method eliminates the parent-child bonding process. These stories were written to allow parents and children to share the opportunity to go into the world of imagination for a brief time and share the precious moments. They are short stories, so they allow for the imagination to take over for a brief period. They were written so that even those with demanding schedules, even single parents, are allowed the time to share some precious moments with their children. My hope is that all will enjoy them, with imagination, and escape into the world of creativity that imagination brings. Imagination, after all, is the catalyst to creativity and invention.

Book Short Summary:

The entire world laid to waste. There are no second chances. The ancient machine that produced icefire was destroyed twenty years ago, but the deadly magic is again on the increase. No one understands why or where it’s coming from. Massive changes in weather patterns plunge the northern half of the inhabited world in deep drought. People are once again fleeing, but nowhere is safe. King Isandor sends people to investigate a concentration of icefire in the mountains at the border, but two consecutive patrols both vanish. It appears that, after having suffered badly in wars, the neighbouring country Arania is on the offensive, and is using icefire as weapon. Their culture is harsh and their barbarism knows no boundaries. Meanwhile two young meteorology students make a string of discoveries that will change the way the people understand the world. They’re on the threshold of the age of enlightenment, but vital knowledge necessary to save their world may well get lost when war overruns the inhabited world. This is a follow-up series to the Icefire Trilogy, although you do not need to have read that series to understand this one. Dark, epic fantasy that will appeal to readers of Robin Hobb, Glenda Larke, George R.R. Martin, Karen Miller and Joe Abercrombie.

Book Short Summary:

Hoffmann's stories highly influenced 19th-century literature, and he is one of the major authors of the Romantic movement. Hoffmann is one of the best-known representatives of German Romanticism, and a pioneer of the fantasy genre, with a taste for the macabre combined with realism that influenced such authors as Edgar Allan Poe, Nikolai Gogol, Charles Dickens, Charles Baudelaire, Fyodor Dostoevsky, Franz Kafka and Alfred Hitchcock. Hoffmann's work makes a considerable contribution to our understanding of the emergence of scientific knowledge in the early years of the nineteenth century and to the conflict between science and magic, centred mainly on the 'truths' available to the advocates of either practice. The Novels: 1. The Devil’s Elixirs 2. Little Zaches 3. Master Flea The Tales: 4. The Serapion Brethren 5. Weird Tales 6. Miscellaneous Tales
