SHE’D LIKE HER BLOOD BOTTLED, PLEASE! The sassiest vampire in all of Manhattan, Lil Marchette, is the owner of Dead End Dating–a matchmaking service for hip, intelligent singles like herself. After only three months, business is booming, and she can finally pay her bills (or, more important, feed a hungry cosmetics addiction). But when one of her clients turns up dead (as in never coming back), Lil is named as the prime suspect. Murder? Sure, she’s a vampire, but she can’t even work up her nerve when it comes to blood-sucking. Hacking somebody to pieces is so out of the question. To make matters worse, Lil must also contend with a pack of werewolves who ask–no, demand–that she find each one a tall, dark, and handsome mate before the next full moon. Plus, the to-die-for-if-I wasn’t-already-dead Ty Bonner, a lusciously sexy lover but totally unsuitable eternity mate, is never far from her midnight fantasies. But Lil has no time for such thoughts. She must prove her innocence and focus on pairing off the dead and the furry–and maybe stake a claim to her own tasty true love. “Kimberly Raye is hot, hot, hot!” –Vicki Lewis Thompson, author of Nerds Like It Hot

Women to Watch WHAT MADDIE HATFIELD LEARNED FROM FINDING THE PERFECT MATE: Rule #1: Never date a co-worker—just because Derek Newman is every woman's fantasy, that doesn't mean he's husband material. Rule #2: After a string for dating disasters, avoid turning to your co-worker for comfort—you might find there's more to Derek than his baby blues…. Rule #3: Don't fall in love with your co-worker—no matter how good it feels to be in Derek's arms. Rule #4: If rules 1-3 fail, refer to Planning the Perfect Wedding. Opposites attract—for better or for worse—in this fun-filled romance from sparkling new author Samantha Carter!

A Dateless Bargain (1887) is a novel by Catherine Louis Pirkis. Known for her contribution of Victorian detective fiction, Pirkis wrote over a dozen novels and countless stories throughout her brief career as a professional writer. Among them, A Dateless Bargain is an undervalued study of family, class, and trauma that will be of particular interest to scholars of English aristocracy and the rise of the women’s rights movement. At their enormous estate in Gloucestershire, Mab and Joyce—daughters of the immensely wealthy Irving Shenstone—are decorating their father’s study in anticipation of his arrival by train. With the help of their gardener, they obtain hundreds of flowers to garnish his desk and bookshelves. Amid the excitement, Mab falls asleep and has a dream where her father stands before her. Unbeknownst to the girls and their mother, Irving Shenstone disembarked from his train at five minutes to twelve, slipped while stepping onto the platform, and struck his head, dying instantly. When the news reaches them, their idyllic life is shattered in an instant, forcing Joyce and Mab to grow up long before their time. A Dateless Bargain is a novel of romance, fortune, and tragedy by a relatively unknown writer of Victorian fiction whose work deserves reassessment by readers and critics alike. With a beautifully designed cover and professionally typeset manuscript, this edition of Catherine Louis Pirkis’ A Dateless Bargain is a classic of Victorian English literature reimagined for modern readers.

Australia's best music writer examines the life of the Australian music legend - honest, revealing and a must-have for any Paul Kelly fan. Until now, no one has written the definitive biography of Australia's best-loved singer, song writer and poet. Taking us from Paul Kelly's family life as the sixth of eight children in Adelaide, Stuart Coupe, with Paul's blessing and access to friends, family and band mates, shows us the evolution from a young man who only really picked up a guitar in his late teens, to an Australian music icon. As Paul's music career took off he had to juggle the demands of rock'n'roll with real life and it wasn't always pretty. As Paul's manager for a time, Stuart Coupe has seen or heard it all - the good and the bad (like Paul being told by an audience member that his was the worst band ever!). The book will look at Paul Kelly's personal relationships and the impact they have had on Paul's career and his storytelling. It will also highlight his generosity to other artists, like Archie Roach. In 2017 Paul Kelly received an Order of Australia acknowledging his distinguished service to the performing arts and the promotion of the national identity through his contributions as singer, songwriter and musician. At the foundation of it all is his storytelling. PAUL KELLY: The man, the music and the life in between will give us an unfiltered examination of it all.

God the Father, Jesus Christ (God the Son), and the Holy Spirit make up the Godhead who have been in existence since eternity past. They constitute the Divine Trinity, consisting of three distinct persons working in unity. They then created the heavens and the earth (out of nothing) in the dateless past. Among their creations were angels and pre-Adam beings. One of the chief angels created by God was called Lucifer. He was an anointed cherub, full of wisdom and perfect in beauty. He was made ruler of the earth and was perfect in his walk until iniquity was found in him. He became proud, exalted himself, and wanted to be like the Most High (God). This iniquity that originated from his heart led him to rebel against God, making him the originator of sin. He then slandered God, causing numerous angels and the pre-Adam beings of the earth to join him in the rebellion against God. He and the rebellious angels were thrown out of heaven by God, and he lost his position as ruler of the earth, which had been destroyed as a result of the rebellion. Lucifer became Satan (adversary) or the devil. God recreated the heavens and the earth (universe) and formed man to rule over all the earth. The universe formed by God was again perfect. Since Satan's rebellion, his main goal has been to incite all beings to join him in rebelling against God. To achieve such objective, he uses various strategies, tactics, and methods to cause man to join him in rebelling against God. The strategies, tactics, and methods that Satan uses to deceive human beings are largely similar. It is, therefore, important for us to understand them so that we can effectively resist him. That has been the focus of this book. Beginning with the causes of Lucifer's sin, we have examined his strategies and tactics as he has applied them on some selected persons in the course of history. These include his encounters with Adam and Eve, Job, Jesus Christ, and Paul the apostle. The aim of this approach has been to identify Satan's strategies, tactics, and methods which he employs as his tools of warfare against human beings. Such knowledge will help us resist him.

This volume, introduced by the author, brings together three novels first published separately. 'The trilogy comprises Carnival (1985), The Infinite Rehearsal (1987) and The Four Banks of the River of Space (1990), novels linked by metaphors borrowed from theatre, traditional carnival itself and literary mythology. The characters make Odyssean voyages through time and space, witnessing and re-enacting the calamitous history of mankind, sometimes assuming sacrificial roles in an attempt to save modern civilisation from self-destruction.' Independent on Sunday 'The Four Banks of the River of Space is a kind of quantum Odyssey... in which the association of ideas is not logical but... a 'magical imponderable dreaming'. The dreamer is Anselm, another of Harris's alter egos, like Everyman Masters in Carnival and Robin Redbreast Glass in The Infinite Rehearsal... Together, they represent one of the most remarkable fictional achievements in the modern canon.' Listener

This richly annotated edition takes a fresh look at the first part of Shakespeare's second tetralogy of history plays, showing how it relates to the other plays in the sequence. Forker places the play in its political context, discussing its relation to competing theories of monarchy, looking at how it faced censorship because of possible comparisons between Richard II and Elizabeth I, and how Bolingbroke's rebellion could be compared to the Essex rising of the time. This edition also reconsiders Shakespeare's use of sources, asking why he chose to emphasise one approach over another. Forker also looks at the play's rich afterlife, and the many interpretations that actors and directors have taken. Finally, the edition looks closely at the aesthetic relationship between language, character, structure and political import.

How many human hearts he wondered had been plucked from bodies there to feed the dying light of the sun and create an obsession with royal sculptures, echoing stone?... It was time to take stock of others as hollow bodies and shelters into which one fell...' In Companions of the Day and Night (first published in 1975) Wilson Harris revives figures from his earlier Black Marsden - chiefly Clive Goodrich, the 'editor' of this text, who constructs a narrative from the papers of a figure known as Idiot Nameless: a wanderer between present and past, taking an Easter sojourn in Mexico that lasts both for days and for centuries. The results have the strangely hypnotic power characteristic of Wilson Harris's fiction.

Hügel's The Mystical Element of Religion features a critical but largely appreciative philosophy of mysticism. The author's "three elements of religion" are his most enduring contribution to theological thinking. The human soul, the movements of western civilization, and the phenomena of religion itself he characterized by these three elements: the historical/institutional element, the intellectual/speculative element, and the mystical/experiential element. This typology provided for him an understanding of the balance, tension, and 'friction' that exists in religious thinking and in the complexity of reality and existence. It was an organizing paradigm that remained central to his project. The effort to hold these sometimes disparate dimensions together was structurally and theologically dominant throughout his writing. The main subject of Hügel's study are the life and teaching of Catherine of Genoa (1447-1510), the Italian Roman Catholic saint and mystic, admired for her work among the sick and the poor and remembered because of various writings describing both these actions and her mystical experiences._x000D_ Contents:_x000D_ The Three Chief Forces of Western Civilization_x000D_ The Three Elements of Religion_x000D_ Catherine Fiesca Adorna's Life, up to her Conversion; and the Chief Peculiarities predominant throughout her Convert Years_x000D_ Catherine's Life from 1473 to 1506, and its Main Changes and Growth_x000D_ Catherine's Last Four Years, 1506-1510_x000D_ Catherine's Doctrine_x000D_ Catherine's Remains and Cultus_x000D_ Battista Vernazza's Life_x000D_ Psycho-physical and Temperamental Questions_x000D_ The Main Literary Sources of Catherine's Conceptions_x000D_ Catherine's Less Ultimate This-World Doctrines_x000D_ The After-Life Problems and Doctrines_x000D_ The First Three Ultimate Questions_x000D_ The Two Final Problems: Mysticism and Pantheism, the Immanence of God, And Spiritual Personality, Human and Divine_x000D_ Back Through Asceticism, Social Religion, and the Scientific Habit of Mind, to the Mystical Element of Religion

From the time of the Treaty of Utrecht in 1713, people of British origin have shared the area of New Brunswick, Nova Scotia, and Prince Edward Island (traditionally called Acadia) with Eastern Canada's Algonkian-speaking peoples, the Mi'kmaq. Despite nearly three centuries of interaction, these communities have largely remained alienated from one another. What were the differences between Mi'kmaq and British structures of valuation? What were the consequences of Acadia's colonization for both Mi'kmaq and British people? By examining the symbolic and mythic lives of these peoples, Reid considers the eighteenth- and nineteenth-century roots of this alienation and suggests that interaction between British and Mi'kmaq during the period was substantially determined by each group's fundamental religious need to feel rooted - to feel at home in Acadia.

ÊAmongst the apparent enigmas of life, amongst the seemingly most radical and abiding of interior antinomies and conflicts experienced by the human race and by individuals, there is one which everything tends to make us feel and see with an ever-increasing keenness and clearness. More and more we want a strong and interior, a lasting yet voluntary bond of union between our own successive states of mind, and between what is abiding in ourselves and what is permanent within our fellow-men; and more and more we seem to see that mere Reasoning, Logic, Abstraction,Ñall that appears as the necessary instrument and expression of the Universal and Abiding,Ñdoes not move or win the will, either in ourselves or in others; and that what does thus move and win it, is Instinct, Intuition, Feeling, the Concrete and Contingent, all that seems to be of its very nature individual and evanescent. Reasoning appears but capable, at best, of co-ordinating, unifying, explaining the material furnished to it by experience of all kinds; at worst, of explaining it away; at best, of stimulating the purveyance of a fresh supply of such experience; at worst, of stopping such purveyance as much as may be. And yet the Reasoning would appear to be the transferable part in the process, but not to move; and the experience alone to have the moving power, but not to be transmissible. Experience indeed and its resultant feeling are always, in the first instance, coloured and conditioned by every kind of individual many-sided circumstances of time and place, of race and age and sex, of education and temperament, of antecedent and environment. And it is this very particular combination, just this one, so conditioned and combined, coming upon me just at this moment and on this spot, just at this stage of my reach or growth, at this turning of my way, that carries with it this particular power to touch or startle, to stimulate or convince. It is just precisely through the but imperfectly analyzable, indeed but dimly perceived, individual connotation of general terms; it is by the fringe of feeling, woven out of the past doings and impressions, workings and circumstances, physical, mental, moral, of my race and family and of my own individual life; it is by the apparently slight, apparently far away, accompaniment of a perfectly individual music to the spoken or sung text of the common speech of man, that I am, it would seem, really moved and won. And this fringe of feeling, this impression, is, strictly speaking, not merely untransferable, but also unrepeatable; it is unique even for the same mind: it never was before, it never will be again. Heraclitus, if we understand that old Physicist in our own modern, deeply subjective, largely sentimental way, would appear to be exactly right: you cannot twice step into the same stream, since never for two moments do the waters remain identical; you yourself cannot twice step the same man into the same river, for you have meanwhile changed as truly as itself has done, _____ ___: all things and states, outward and inward, appear indeed in flux: only each moment seems to bring, to each individual, for that one moment, his power to move and to convince.

After the psychologically scarring death of her father, wild child Rosie Dwyer is introduced to journal keeping. She initially considers this writing form to be cliché. Before the death, Rosie valued chaos and rebellion- from “protest-peeing” in class to shoving a Twinkie in a classmate’s eye. However, once Rosie gives into this mode of writing, a cathartic obsession begins. Her entries often focus on her childhood enemy, Logan Fields, after he becomes Rosie’s permanent peer editor in creative writing class. While Rosie loses touch with both loved ones and reality, an unlikely friendship builds between her and Logan. Together, they must try to find the meaning behind insanity--in the school theatre, in the public library, and in the middle of a false Apocalypse.

The focus of this book is on the media representations of the use of the Internet in seeking intimate connections—be it a committed relationship, a hook-up, or a community in which to dabble in fringe sexual practices. Popular culture (film, narrative television, the news media, and advertising) present two very distinct pictures of the use of the Internet as related to intimacy. From news reports about victims of online dating, to the presentation of the desperate and dateless, the perverts and the deviants, a distinct frame for the intimacy/Internet connection is negativity. In some examples however, a changing picture is emerging. The ubiquitousness of Internet use today has meant a slow increase in comparatively more positive representations of successful online romances in the news, resulting in more positive-spin advertising and a more even-handed presence of such liaisons in narrative television and film. Both the positive and the negative media representations are categorised and analysed in this book to explore what they reveal about the intersection of gender, sexuality, technology and the changing mores regarding intimacy.
