A couple of jerks wake me up at the crack of noon. Seems my klepto uncle stole an ancient deck of Tarot cards from a high-powered wizard, and too many losers want to ruin my day to get them back. The cards are cool, so I check them out, but my magic-happy cousin, Sabrina, tells me I'm not supposed to touch them. Oops. Too late. Now the damn cards are tuned to me, and if someone else wants to use them, I have to die. Why couldn't she have led with that information? Magic was never my scene, but my dad is one of the most powerful wizards in the world, so I've got unrealized potential if I ever bother to apply myself. I'd rather power nap, but with wizards, gunslingers, and cannibalistic shark dudes coming at me, that's not gonna happen. They say I'm a half-assed wizard, but if I don't play my cards right, I'm gonna get my whole ass killed.

The agents of the Supernatural Protection & Investigation (SPI) are used to dealing with the weird and the wacky, but even they are stunned when a building from another world suddenly appears on an empty lot in New York. . . I'm Makenna Fraser, seer for SPI, and it's just my luck that my birthday party is literally crashed by a building from another planet. And it's not just any building-it's my goblin boyfriend's house from his home world. SPI's mission, to keep the public clueless about the supernatural, has us scrambling to find who did this and why, not to mention how. The deeper we dig, the more we realize this incident is the opening gambit to a much larger event. Old enemies have combined forces with an even older nemesis to develop the means to kidnap an entire building and everyone in it. But who, or what, is their ultimate target? Finding out and getting to the mark before they do will require all hands on deck, including some extraterrestrial help from the goblin home world. We're running out of time, and if we can't get our act together, we'll have front-row seats for the end of the world as we know it.

Life sucks. My old man makes me work for a big-ass witch named Lakesha so I can learn magic and help people.

Just my luck though - it's a ghost that's been snatched, which is right in my wheelhouse. Why would anyone want to kidnap a ghost? And why should I care one way or the other? I prefer power napping to kidnapping. But when the abductors use the ghost to kill a man in a robbery gone wrong, it's up to me to save the day. As long as I don't have to get up before noon...

Pierre Or The Ambiguities

Author: Herman Melville
Publisher: Northwestern University Press
ISBN: 0810114127
Release Date: 1995
Genre: Fiction

Initially dismissed as "a dead failure" and "a bad book," and declined by Melville's British publisher, Pierre has since struck critics as modern in its psychological probings and literary technique--fit, as Carl Van Vechten said in 1922, to be ranked with The Golden Bowl, Women in Love, and Ulysses. None of Melville's other "secondary" works has so regularly been acknowledged by its most thorough critics as a work of genuine grandeur, however flawed. When Pierre Glendinning's lifelong desire for a sister is seemingly realized on the eve of his marriage, his world is suddenly turned upside down, for he must choose between acknowledging his illegitimate half-sister or perpetuating his unsullied family legacy. Melville unfolds the story of an idealistic young man whose steadfast beliefs lead him to destroy his world and himself.

Essays of George Eliot

Genre: Literary Collections

PREFACE. Since the death of George Eliot much public curiosity has been excited by the repeated allusions to, and quotations from, her contributions to periodical literature, and a leading newspaper gives expression to a general wish when it says that “this series of striking essays ought to be collected and reprinted, both because of substantive worth and because of the light they throw on the author’s literary canons and predilections.” In fact, the articles which were published anonymously in The Westminster Review have been so pointedly designated by the editor, and the biographical sketch in the “Famous Women” series is so emphatic in its praise of them, and so copious in its extracts from one and the least important one of them, that the publication of all the Review and magazine articles of the renowned novelist, without abridgment or alteration, would seem but an act of fair play to her fame, while at the same time a compliance with a reasonable public demand. Nor are these first steps in her wonderful intellectual progress any the less, but are all the more noteworthy, for being first steps. “To ignore this stage,” says the author of the valuable little volume to which we have just referred—“to ignore this stage in George Eliot’s mental development would be to lose one of the connecting links in her history.” Furthermore,“nothing in her fictions excels the style of these papers.” Here is all her“epigrammatic felicity,” and an irony not surpassed by Heine himself, while her paper on the poet Young is one of her wittiest bits of critical analysis. Her translation of Status’s “Life of Jesus” was published in 1840, and her translation of Feuerbach’s “Essence of Christianity” in 1854. Her translation of Spinoza’s “Ethics” was finished the same year, but remains unpublished. She was associate editor of The Westminster Reviewfrom 1851 to 1853. She was about twenty-seven years of age when her first translation appeared, thirty-three when the first of these magazine articles appeared, thirty-eight at the publication of her first story, and fifty-nine when she finished “Theophrastus Such.” Two years after she died, at the age of sixty-one. So that George Eliot’s literary life covered a period of about thirty-two years.

Genre: Foreign Language Study

The framing story concerns a man who dreams of speaking to Venus about love while she wears furs. The unnamed narrator tells his dreams to a friend, Severin, who tells him how to break himself of his fascination with cruel women by reading a manuscript, Memoirs of a Suprasensual Man. This manuscript tells of a man, Severin von Kusiemski, who is so infatuated with a woman, Wanda von Dunajew, that he asks to be her slave, and encourages her to treat him in progressively more degrading ways. Protagonist der Handlung ist Severin von Kusiemski, der seine Erfahrungen einem Freund in Form eines Manuskripts zu lesen gibt. Auslöser dieser Rahmenhandlung ist ein Traum dieses Freundes, in dem eine griechische Venus im christlichen Norden friert und sich in Pelze hüllen muss, und ein Gemälde in Severins Zimmer, das ihn in jungen Jahren in demütiger Haltung zu Füßen einer Venus im Pelz zeigt. Severin trifft als junger Mann Mitte zwanzig in einem Karpatenbad die junge und reiche Witwe Wanda von Dunajew, von deren Schönheit und Ähnlichkeit zur, schon seit seiner Kindheit verehrten, griechischen Venus er fasziniert ist. Den Heiratsantrag Severins will Wanda jedoch nicht annehmen und schlägt ihm stattdessen eine einjährige Probezeit vor.

Emily of New Moon

Author: L. M. Montgomery
Publisher: Read Books Ltd
ISBN: 9781473373891
Release Date: 2015-04-23
Genre: Young Adult Fiction

This early work by Lucy Maud Montgomery was originally published in 1923 and we are now republishing it with a brand new introductory biography. 'Emily of New Moon' is the first tale in the 'Emily Starr' series, and tells the story of an orphaned girl using her wit and courage to face the harsh world. Lucy Maud Montgomery was born on 30th November 1874, New London, in the Canadian province of Prince Edward Island. Her mother, Clara Woolner (Macneil), died before Lucy reached the age of two and so she was raised by her maternal grandparents in a family of wealthy Scottish immigrants. In 1908 Montgomery produced her first full-length novel, titled 'Anne of Green Gables'. It was an instant success, and following it up with several sequels, Montgomery became a regular on the best-seller list and an international household name. Montgomery died in Toronto on 24th April 1942.

I'd had less than a week to recover from an incident that left me half-dead. My body was battered and bruised in ways I can't even begin to describe. Dark magic use had consumed me, spat me out a husk of a man. I was little more than flesh and bone, weary to my very soul. So, of course, there was a knock at the door. My smile faded, happy face turning to tears, as Kate, a gorgeous vampire and the woman I lust over at every available opportunity, told me the news. Dark magic came to me as my eyes snapped to black and my tattoos felt fit to burst with the energy they channeled. I'm Faz Pound, a.k.a. Black Spark, Dark Magic Enforcer, and a goddamn wizard! I'll tear apart hell itself to get at anyone or anything that dares hurt the people I care about. Nobody messes with me or mine and lives. Nobody. Things are about to get nasty.
