It’s 1944, and a little village in rural Quebec sits quietly beside an aging mountain and an angry river. The air tastes of kelp, and the wind keeps knocking over the cross. Beside that river an eleven-year-old girl lives with her parents. Her mother is very sad, and her father has vanished because he can’t bear to look at his own daughter. You see, this little girl has suddenly sprouted a full beard. And so her mother has shut the curtains and locked the girl inside to keep her safe from the townspeople, the Boots, who think there’s something wrong with a bearded little girl. And when they come for her, she escapes into the wintry night...

While this book is a collection of all the unfulfilled prophecies that I could find in the Bible, I do not have all the answers to prophecy in THIS LAST Revival before the Great Tribulation of Jesus. The New Testament passages are directly from the Greek as they, most of the time, appear in THE TRANSLATORS NEW TESTAMENT, my translation printed by Xulon Press. When Jesus gives us His own words we begin to see a general truth concerning these last days. I had and still have no presuppositions to prophecy. The millennium, that Jesus will rule for a thousand years before the Great Tribulation, is clearly taught in the Bible. There are many different millenialists, from those who are always preaching that Jesus will return to this world visibly to rule it for a thousand years, to “premillenialists,” “postmillenialists,” etc. This book contains much of God’s Word about the kingdom of the devils and how they also operate especially during This Last Revival, this millennium in which we are now in, in which the unreached dialects are being, or about to be given the Word of God. This book also shows us how God wants us to take part in This Last Revival.

The Jungle Books can be regarded as classic stories told by an adult to children. But they also constitute a complex literary work of art in which the whole of Kipling's philosophy of life is expressed in miniature. They are best known for the `Mowgli' stories; the tale of a baby abandoned and brought up by wolves, educated in the ways and secrets of the jungle by Kaa the python, Baloo the bear, and Bagheera the black panther. The stories, a mixture of fantasy, myth, and magic, are underpinned by Kipling's abiding preoccupation with the theme of self-discovery, and the nature of the `Law'.

Each affordable volume reflects Oxford's commitment to scholarship, providing the most accurate text plus a wealth of other valuable features, including expert introductions by leading authorities, helpful notes to clarify the text, up-to-date bibliographies for further study, and much more.

Ein Gewitter nach dem anderen zieht sich in diesem heißen Sommer am Himmel zusammen und immer, wenn es ausbricht, verliert Rose Bowan das Bewusstsein und hat intensive, vollkommen realistische Träume, in denen sie im Körper einer anderen Frau ist. Sind das nur Träume? Oder »bewohnt« sie tatsächlich eine Fremde? Was geschieht ihr? So verstört wie fasziniert fängt sie an zu recherchieren, verlässt den Kokon des kleinen Programmkinos ihrer Familie und taucht in das aufgewühlte Leben von jemandem ein, der ganz anders ist als sie. Gleichzeitig erkrankt ihre Mutter an Demenz und fängt an – zum ersten Mal seit Jahrzehnten –, über eine andere gespenstische Präsenz zu sprechen: über Roses kleine Schwester. In Kleine Schwester erkundet Barbara Gowdy die erstaunliche Macht der Empathie, die Frage, wo wir aufhören und die anderen anfangen, und erzählt mit großer Eindringlichkeit von den tiefen familiären Bindungen, die uns prägen – ob wir wollen oder nicht.

A New Zealand Book of Beasts

Animals in Our Culture, History and Everyday Life


Author: Annie Potts

Category: Literary Criticism

A New Zealand Book of Beasts is a groundbreaking examination of the interactions between humans and 'nonhuman animals' - both real and imagined - in New Zealand's arts and literature, popular culture, historiography, media and everyday life. Structured in four parts - Animal Icons, Animal Companions, Art Animals and Controversial Animals - the Book of Beasts touches on topics as diverse as moa-hunting and the SPCA, pest-control and pet-keeping, whaling and whale-watching; on species ranging from sheep to sperm whales and from pekapeka to possums; and on the works of authors and artists as various as Samuel Butler and Witi Ihimaera, Lady Mary Anne Barker and Janet Frame, Michael Parekowhai and Don Binney, Bill Hammond and Fiona Pardington. In examining through literature, art and culture the ways New Zealanders use and abuse, shape and are shaped by, glorify and co-opt, and describe and imagine animals, the authors tell us a great deal about our society and culture: how we understand our own identities and those of others; how we regard, inhabit and make use of the natural world; and how we think about what to buy, eat, wear, watch and read. This is an engaging, original and scholarly rigorous book of cultural criticism and a thoughtful addition to New Zealand literature.

Rudyard Kipling was a major figure of English literature, who used the full power and intensity of his imagination and his writing ability in his excursions into fantasy. Kipling, one of England's greatest writers, was born in Bombay. He was educated in England, but returned to India in 1882. He began writing fantasy and supernatural stories set in his native continent, such as 'The Phantom Rickshaw' and 'The Strange Ride of Morrowbie Jukes', and his most famous weird story is 'The Mark of the Beast' (1890), about a man cursed to transform into a were-leopard. This Masterwork, edited by Stephen Jones, Britain's most accomplished and acclaimed anthologist, collects all Kipling's weird fiction for the first time; the stories range from traditional ghostly tales to psychological horror.
