Meet Oswald Hendryks Cornelius, Roald Dahl's most disgraceful and extraordinary character . . . Aside from being thoroughly debauched, strikingly attractive and astonishingly wealthy, Uncle Oswald was the greatest bounder, bon vivant and fornicator of all time. In this instalment of his scorchingly frank memoirs he tells of his early career and erotic education at the hands of a number of enthusiastic teachers, of discovering the invigorating properties of the Sudanese Blister Beetle, and of the gorgeous Yasmin Howcomely, his electrifying partner in a most unusual series of thefts . . . 'Raunchy and cheeky entertainment' Sunday Express 'Immense fun' Daily Telegraph Roald Dahl, the brilliant and worldwide acclaimed author of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, James and the Giant Peach, Matilda, and many more classics for children, also wrote scores of short stories for adults. These delightfully disturbing tales have often been filmed and were most recently the inspiration for the West End play, Roald Dahl's Twisted Tales by Jeremy Dyson. Roald Dahl's stories continue to make readers shiver today.

Die Archäologin Tammi entdeckt während einer Ausgrabung in Ostanatolien in den Fundamenten einer alten Karawanserei altpersische und elamische Tontafeln. Diese bestätigen die Theorie einer außerirdischen Schöpfung des modernen Menschen, bringen jedoch den Grabungsleiter in eine prekäre Situation. Während das Grabungsteam die geografischen Schnitttiefen archäologisch und die zwischenmenschlichen Beziehungsmöglichkeiten astrologisch auslotet, erscheint am Horizont ein mysteriöser Reiter, der Tammi auf eine Reise durch Raum und Zeit mitnimmt. Im Susa des 7. vorchristlichen Jahrhunderts findet sie die Wurzeln ihrer Passionen und erkennt, daß es mehr gibt zwischen Himmel und Erde, als der Mensch sich je vorstellen kann. Kerstin Maksen wurde im Februar 1960 in Gera geboren. Von 1966 bis 1969 lebte die Familie im Irak, wo die Eltern an der DDR-Botschaft in Bagdad arbeiteten. Fasziniert von den Ruinen des alten Babylonien beschließt sie, Archäologin zu werden. Bis 1983 studierte sie Asienwissenschaften an der Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin, nutzte ein Auslandssemester in Kabul für eine »Verschleierte Flucht« nach Pakistan und setzte das Sommersemester 1984 an der Universität Heidelberg in den Fächern Vorderasiatische Archäologie, Ethnologie, Iranistik und Assyriologie fort. Sie nahm an Ausgrabungen in der Türkei und in Syrien teil und schrieb ihre Magisterarbeit über die »Neuelamische Glyptik«.

Einstein and the Time Machine

Author: Luca Novelli
Publisher: Flashes of Genius
ISBN: 161373865X
Release Date: 2017-06-01
Genre: Juvenile Nonfiction

Albert Einstein wasn't afraid to think for himself. And as a young man, he had little choice--after barely passing his final exams in college, he couldn't find a job in physics and had to take a job reviewing inventors' patent applications at an office in Bern, Switzerland. But in his free time he wrote papers with fantastical theories. That light is both a wave and a particle. That matter can become energy, and energy can become matter. That space can "bend" and time is relative. Other scientists ignored him at first, but in time would realize he was absolutely correct about nearly everything, and it turned the world of physics upside down. Einstein and the Time Machine is a fast-paced, entertaining biography of the greatest thinkers of the twentieth century. In addition to its lively story, it includes 190 illustrations, a glossary, and sidebars covering related topics, from time travel to the Nobel Prize to the origin of the universe--the Big Bang.

I Hate the Internet

ISBN: 1781257620
Release Date: 2017-05-04
Genre:

In New York in the middle of the twentieth century, comic book companies figured out how to make millions from comics without paying their creators anything. In San Francisco at the start of the twenty-first century, tech companies figured out how to make millions from online abuse without paying its creators anything. In the 1990s, Adeline drew a successful comic book series that ended up making her kind-of famous. In 2013, Adeline aired some unfashionable opinions that made their way onto the Internet. The reaction of the Internet, being a tool for making millions in advertising revenue from online abuse, was predictable. The reaction of the Internet, being part of a culture that hates women, was to send Adeline messages like 'Drp slut ... hope u get gang rape.'Set in a San Francisco hollowed out by tech money, greed and rampant gentrification, I Hate the Internet is a savage indictment of the intolerable bullshit of unregulated capitalism and an uproarious, hilarious but above all furious satire of our Internet Age.
