Vor Hunderten von Jahren entdeckten vier Mädchen ein totes Einhorn und nahmen dessen verbliebene Energie in sich auf, die sie an die nachfolgenden Generationen weitergaben - bis zu Pia, Kiara, Ivonne und Saskia. Durch dieses Erbe wurden allerdings auch mächtige Feinde auf sie aufmerksam. Eine davon, Susanna, macht den vier Freundinnen das Leben zur Hölle. Sie müssen rasch lernen, ihre magischen Kräfte zu beherrschen, wenn sie gegen Susanna bestehen wollen. Jugendlich frisches Fantasy-Epos mit einem Schuss "Charmed" und einer Prise der Animationsserie "Sailor Moon". Auf das Schreibtalent der Gymnasiastin Judith Billes aus Eisenstadt, Österreich, wurde man erstmals aufmerksam, als sie den 3. Platz beim Literaturwettbewerb "Literatur überwindet Grenzen IV" belegte. Mit ihrem Fantasyepos "Unicorn" zeigt sie nun, dass das Schreiben ihr inzwischen in Blut und Knochen übergegangen ist.

Unicorns are unique not just for their startling singular horn but because people carried on believing in them long after dragons, griffins, manticores and a host of other fanciful creatures had been consigned to myth and heraldry. Suckling covers the ancient tales and rumours that began the superstition, the wide-ranging influence of this creature, the early confusion between the mythical unicorn and the rhinoceros, its adoption as a Christian symbol; its use in heraldry, and the value of its horn as powerful medicine.

Resurrecting the Unicorn

Masculinity in the 21st Century


Author: Bud Harris

Publisher: Fisher King Press

ISBN: 0981034403

Many 21st century men have been raised by women - without a masculine role model - and what they've learned about being a man has been defined by their mothers, wives, and outdated or distorted concepts from the 20th century feminist movement. As is the case for both men and women, without a strong masculine image our souls become fragmented and we lose our way. When we are in such a state of confusion and imbalance, we must begin again to search for the Holy Grail. The Grail is the symbolic container of the psycho-spiritual contents that can nourish, balance, and renew our lives. In Resurrecting the Unicorn, Bud Harris guides us deep into the realm of metaphors where we can examine the evolution and development of human consciousness and reclaim discarded, yet much needed, aspects of our humanity.

a) The Unicorn As with the night-scented stock, the full splendour of the unicorn manifests itself most potently at twilight. Then the horn sprouts, swells, blooms in all its glory. SEE THE HORN (bend the tab, slit in slot marked 'x') Despite being one of the most influential - and best-loved - of the post-war English writers, Angela Carter remains little-known as a poet. In Unicorn, the critic and historian Rosemary Hill collects together her published verse from 1963-1971, a period in which Carter began to explore the themes that dominated her later work: magic, the reworking of myths and their darker sides, and the overturning of literary and social conventions. With imagery at times startling in its violence and disconcerting in its presentation of sexuality, Unicorn provides compelling insight into the formation of a remarkable imagination. In the essay that accompanies the poems the critic and historian Rosemary Hill considers them in the context of Carter's other work and as an aspect of the 1960s, the decade which as Carter put it 'wasn't like they say in the movies'.
