Sandy Blunt, witch, has big dreams but C-average magic skills. Her only noteworthy talent is for paying extravagant compliments to women. Trouble is, when she uses that gift, she unwittingly foretells the future for a pretty princess. The punishment for prophesying about one of royal blood is death. With the help of ill-assorted companions, including a self-professed princess in disguise with a wild imagination, a self-absorbed member of the royal guard, and the not-so-average girl next door, Sandy has a year and a day to travel to far-flung places--encountering such dangerous creatures as a dragon who writes awful poetry, slovely elves, and boarding house landladies--to collect the weird and magical items needed to turn her prophecies into promises and so evade the executioner.

Has psychoanalysis failed to keep its promise? What are psychoanalysis and literature good for? And what, if anything, have they got to do with each other? Promises, Promises is a delightful new collection of essays which sets out to make and break the links between psychoanalysis and literature. It confirms Adam Phillips as a virtuoso performer able to reach far beyond the borders of psychoanalytic discourse into art, drama, poetry and history. This collection gives us insights into anorexia and cloning, the work of Tom Stoppard and A.E. Housman, the effect of the Blitz on Londoners, Nijinsky's diary and Martin Amis's Night Train, and provides a case history of clutter. In a final essay, the author turns to the question - why sign up for analysis when you could read a book? Promoting everywhere a refreshing version of a psychoanalysis that is more committed to happiness and inspiration than to self-knowledge or some absolute truth, Promises, Promises reaffirms Adam Phillips as a writer whose work, in the words of one reviewer, 'hovers in a strange and haunting borderland between rigour and delight.'

But it was suddenly interrupted when Gretchen announced she was pregnant. And Marco amazed himself when he considered doing something he'd promised never to do—propose!

Promises, Promises relates the author's journey through life from a resistant teen to an accepting adult. Joy felt the Lord's call when she was only sixteen years old. She fought that call for al- most thirty years. She had a successful career in the United States Navy as a nurse, working her way up the ranks. Her personal life, however, was an unsatisfying bounce from bad marriage to bad relationship. At the peak of her success in civilian life, she began a downward spiral into a depression so deep, so impassable that she could only escape by answering that call she had ignored for all those years. Joy is now studying for the ministery and wants to share her story and her testimony in the hopes that she can inspire others to listen to the promises of God. "God told me to write a book. 'But God, I hate to write! Me? Write a book? I don't know the style, the method, the process, and I don't have the money.' Over the next few days when I read my Bible, God began to speak to me. He told me to keep it plain and do it." And "do it" Joy did. She let God show her the style, the method, and the process. She trusted Him to provide the money. This book is proof of her faith and His fulfillment of His promise. Joy's words flow from her heart, sometimes in straight testimony, sometimes in poetry, always in love and peace. Her name truly fits her. The cover was designed by Joy's friend, Elizabeth Sansom. Elizabeth is a retired teacher and full-time artist who has witnessed the transformation in Joy's life. This book will inspire you to reach greater heights in your spiritual walk with God. Promises Promises has the potential of challenging you into a greater level of faith.

God wants us to be blessed. Malachi 3: 10 says: "Bring all the tithes into the storehouse, that there may be meat in mine house, and prove me now herewith, saith the Lord of host, if I will not open you the windows of Heaven, and pour you out a blessing, that there shall not be room enough to receive it."

The past quarter century has seen the Australian community and its governments commit to a full and equal citizenship for disabled people. Has the promise been fulfilled? How effective have these changes been? Mike Clear focuses on NSW to find answers and engage their meanings personally and socially. He brings together research, analysis and the insights of disabled writers in a detailed and critical study, structured around three Parts: personal dialogues that provide sensitive insights into personal experiences and the nature of a disabling society; chapters describing and critically appraising the policy and legislative landscape; and four critical perspectives on key relevant social issues: access, telecommunications, cultural representation and the politics of care. He finds there have been important gains, based largely on human rights initiatives and the efforts and skill of disabled people themselves. However, the inclusion of disabled people is carefully managed by governments. It is 'turned on' and 'turned off' as ideology and policy priorities dictate. Do these gains reflect a promise kept? Not while the systemic alienation of people who have impairment and often, if less directly, of their associates continues. And not, as this book reveals, whilst Australian economic, social and cultural systems remain so fundamentally unchanged.
