The first collection of short stories by Archie Aston. ""Here in Archie Aston's collection, the security men from the transport system are magnified into a block of bullish aggressors, the piece of dirty metal found in a doughnut becomes the object of scientific pursuits of the highest level, and the slightly brutal-looking guy at the bar turns into a mythographer of the most chilling torture chambers. You're let into a ducked-down universe, where for a moment, the things that happen waver between reality and incubus, and the places it happens look somewhere just between an urban planning fail and dystopic film set. We flirt with painful debasement of human life and ridicule, we partake of the finest, and funniest, inspiration. Unapologetic and deliberately rough around the edges, Archie Aston has written a short collection of stories that are easy to follow, and yet strangely deep and sticky in their unassumingly scatological and flippant charm. Totally awesome!"" Polly Trope writing for Indie Berlin

Wie ordnen sich gesellschaftliche Verhältnisse nach kriegerischer Gewalt neu? Und wie gehen Betroffene und Beteiligte mit weiterhin bestehenden unfriedlichen Beziehungen um? Am Fallbeispiel Sierra Leone untersucht Anne Menzel die Trennlinie zwischen der Zivilbevölkerung und (ehemaligen) Kämpfern, die sowohl in der Forschung zu Nachkriegsgesellschaften als auch in der Peacebuilding-Praxis meist als gegeben angesehen und ganz selbstverständlich gezogen wird. Ihre Studie eröffnet neue und überraschende Perspektiven, indem sie Einblick in das Entstehen und in die andauernde Praxis einer lokalen »Ästhetik der Gefährlichkeit« gibt, in der sich gerade keine eindeutige Trennung von Exkombattanten und Zivilbevölkerung ausmachen lässt.

Written with the characteristic wit and good humour, Leslie Thomas's novel tells the story of a grown man who runs away from home, and the adventures that befall him in his quest for a new lease of life. His latest love affair discovered (thanks to an observant fifteen-year-old daughter who points out the still-wet suds of expensive soap lingering in his ear), bestselling author Nicholas Boulting sets off amid a torrent of abuse to see what else life can offer. After his fantasy escape to Luxor turns into a nighmarish excursion to Malaga, Nicholas returns hastily to London. He moves into a flat in Little Venice with Sol Solomon, a sex-mad writer of dubious reputation, and sits down to write his next novel, Owls of Desperation. Full of the qualities we have come to expect from his novels, Running Away is Leslie Thomas's eminently readable and enjoyable story of one man's mid-life crisis.

“Ulysses’ honest candor about the Christian journey is refreshing! He supports the body of Christ in developing spiritual veracity while applying practical truths. Running Away is an authentic discourse exploring life behind the pulpit.” —Vita Jones, Ph.D For those sons and daughters who served alongside their parents in ministry and were left on the battlefield wounded with scars, you are not forgotten. There is healing for the soul and spirit, even in the midst of pain and disappointment. Pastor King’s daring memoir goes beyond the religious slogans and Christian jargon that is so often used by popular celebrity-preachers, and he examines some of the views and stereotypes cast on pastors’ children who serve in the church. He shares his personal journey, emotions, and reasons for accepting the call to serve as the pastor of a historic classical Pentecostal church. He also attempts to answer the question, “Why do so many pastors’ children leave the church and run away from the call to serve?” Running Away is a memoir of passion told by the son of a bishop who struggled to find his purpose and destiny in a denomination he no longer loved after the death of his father. The book looks at Pastor King’s personal tests, failures, and trials in ministry, and what it took for him to overcome some of the painful experiences of leadership. Running Away is not a memoir of triumph or failure, but of truth—his truth. Pastor King takes a leap of faith and risk by being vulnerable in order to share his story with a broader and wider community, hoping his readers will understand his heart and love for his father, and the local church he faithfully served for over thirty years. Running Away is a must-read for pastors with children and Christians who are often critical of them.

It starts with an 18 year old boy in the sea next to the Santa Monica Pier. He has no memory of anything, not even how the world works, or even if it should work. Does it last a few moments, or forever? He’s so lost that it takes him an hour to realize he can walk up on shore, that he has legs, that he’s a separate being from the water and air. He’s wearing a Billabong wetsuit. Billy, named for his sole possession and only piece of clothing, experiences every one of his first eleven days on earth as an epic journey. He confronts the need for food and water and how to deal with the things that come out of his body. He discovers friendship and love and violence. He develops his own concept of what is good in the world. His neo-hippy love obsession, Elysia, describes him as having “the clearest poet eyes in the world.” Her smart and doomed alcoholic boyfriend, Roka, says Billy sounds like “a sad little robot that just got activated.” Who is he? Where did he come from? Is he an alien or a prophet? Why are women special, and men not so special? Why is pizza better than a hamburger? Why are there so many questions in the world? Read this quirky and mind blowing chronicle to find out.

In June 1948, 27-year-old petty criminal Caryl Chessman was sentenced in California on two counts of sexual assault, receiving two death sentences as punishment in a case that remains one of the most baffling episodes in American legal history. Maintaining his innocence of these crimes, Chessman lived in Cell 2455, a four-by-ten foot space on Death Row in San Quentin for the twelve years between his sentencing and eventual execution. He spent this time, punctuated by eight separate stays of execution, writing this memoir — a moving and pitiless account of his life in crime and the early life that produced it. Chessman's clarity of mind and ability to bring his thoughts directly to the page, even within the stifling walls of San Quentin, help make this work the most literate and authentic expose ever written by a criminal about his crimes.

An “extraordinary” novel of five friends coming of age in 1960s New York City, from a New York Times–bestselling, Academy Award–winning author (The Plain Dealer). William Goldman, the versatile author who gave us classic thrillers like Marathon Man, the immortal comedy of The Princess Bride, and the infamous Hollywood tell-all Adventures in the Screen Trade, offers a beautiful and sweeping novel inspired by his own coming-of-age, set against the backdrop of the New York theater world. In Boys and Girls Together, five friends—each of them young, creative, ambitious, and troubled—make their way to Manhattan in pursuit of their dreams. Aaron, the playwright; Walt, the director; Rudy and Jenny, both actors; and Branch, their producer, all come together to struggle, fight, love, create art, and face the hard truths of life. A popular sensation when it was first published in 1964, Boys and Girls Together remains a masterwork of heartbreaking emotional honesty. This ebook features a biography of William Goldman.

At a turning point in his life, George Fetherling embarked on an adventure to sail round the world on one of the last of the tramp freighters. The four-month voyage carried him 30,000 nautical miles from Europe via the Panama Canal to the South Pacific and back by way of Singapore, Indonesia, the Indian Ocean, and Suez. Written with dash, colour, and droll humour, Fetherling’s narrative is peopled by a rich cast of characters, from the Foreign Legionnaires of French Polynesia to the raskol gangs of Papua New Guinea. The author captures the reality of life aboard a working cargo ship – the boredom, the seclusion, the differences of nationality and culture that isolation and cramped quarters seem to exaggerate. But the routine of loneliness or tranquility is punctuated by moments of near-panic – shipboard fires, furniture-smashing storms, even a brush with pirates in the Straits of Malacca.

A handful of ordinary Americans -- housewives, lawyers, interior decorators, and the like -- found themselves caught up in a transdimensional conflict, and transported from their homes to realms where magic worked, to desert planets and rebel worlds, to places straight out of science fiction and fantasy. But these were not the harmless, happy-ending lands of film and fable. The sweat and blood was real, and the horrors they faced genuinely dangerous. One world was a world of magic, ruled by a dark force called Shadow. A handful of would-be heroes resisted Shadow's dominion, and sought assistance in their desperate struggle to free their homeland. The other reality was a universe of spaceships and rayguns, dominated by a Galactic Empire that saw Shadow as a threat -- and that demanded the exiles from our world aid them in their campaign. Against their will, these few people were flung into battle . . . IN THE EMPIRE OF SHADOW "In Worlds of Shadow, Lawrence Watt-Evans tells an exciting tale with memorable characters and relentless action. A must-read for fans of dark fantasy and horror." -- Karen E. Taylor, author of "The Vampire Legacy" Series
