In 1960, five young men arrived at the imposing gates of Parkminster, the largest center of the most rigorous and ascetic monastic order in the Western world: the Carthusians. This is the story of their five-year journey into a society virtually unchanged in its behavior and lifestyle since its foundation in 1084. An Infinity of Little Hours is a uniquely intimate portrait of the customs and practices of a monastic order almost entirely unknown until now. It is also a drama of the men's struggle as they avoid the 1960s—the decade of hedonism, music, fashion, and amorality—and enter an entirely different era and a spiritual world of their own making. After five years each must face a choice: to make "solemn profession" and never leave Parkminster; or to turn his back on his life's ambition to find God in solitude. A remarkable investigative work, the book combines first-hand testimony with unique source material to describe the Carthusian life. And in the final chapter, which recounts a reunion forty years after the events described elsewhere in the book, Nancy Klein Maguire reveals which of the five succeeded in their quest, and which did not.

Life just keeps getting more complicated for Annie Baker. Her sister Lizzie's pregnant and wants Annie to be her birth-partner - she's planning an active labour, in water, with lots of candles and music. Her partner Matt isn't too sure, although he's bought some new swimming trunks just in case. Annie's friend Leila has got a new man, Tor, and she's getting heavily into yoga, while Kate from the village has somehow ended up having an affair with her own ex-husband. And as for the men in Annie's own life, it just gets worse. Her seven-year-old son Charlie is now officially Pagan, and desperate for his own pet pheasant. Boss Barney is building a bit of a reputation for TV commercials involving stunts, so if she's not lurching around the North Sea in a trawler, she's stuck up a crane. Then there's Uncle Monty to keep an eye on, a retired mole-catcher who collects bric-a-brac. He's eighty-three and a few sandwiches short of a picnic, and has just threatened the Meals on Wheels lady with a shotgun and refuses to leave the farm where he's lived all his life. And as if all that wasn't difficult enough, Mack comes back from New York, just when Annie was beginning to think she might be able to cope without him ... For everyone who fell in love with Annie Baker and her Only Boy for Me, here's what happened next. And for anyone who's ever wondered how to combine motherhood, the country life and a career in town, and why pheasants make that weird clicking noise, this is essential reading.

Metanoia: A Catholic eTract Series, Volume Number Two: Prayer and the Tingling Grace is the author’s second publication in a series of Catholic etracts. In Prayer and the Tingling Grace, the author sets forth his personal account of God’s deification, justification/sanctification, healing, and salvation of his soul through what he describes as “the tingling grace,” as well as that special grace’s role in his exhortation of others to get right their relationship with Jesus Christ. He is publishing it to testify and/or witness to the Reality, Truth, and Love that is God, especially in light of the current crisis of faith in the increasingly post-Christian, hedonistic, nihilist, and occult West. Finally, this etract is part of the author’s lay apostolate of Catholic-Christian witness to the reality, power, and transforming/saving Love of God, as well as the author’s response to and promotion of the Church’s “universal call to holiness” (Lumen Gentium) and the “new evangelization” (Novo Millenio Ineunte), in the electronically and globally connected virtual world of the Internet. This book is also available for purchase by Kindle device and app users in the Kindle Store on Amazon.com.

The Man Who Knew Infinity is the true story of a friendship between Srinivasa Ramanujan and G.H. Hardy that forever changed mathematics. In 1913, a young unschooled Indian clerk wrote a letter to G H Hardy, begging the pre-eminent English mathematician's opinion on several ideas he had about numbers. Realising the letter was the work of a genius, Hardy arranged for Srinivasa Ramanujan to come to England. Thus began one of the most improbable and productive collaborations ever chronicled. With a passion for rich and evocative detail, Robert Kanigel takes us from the temples and slums of Madras to the courts and chapels of Cambridge University, where the devout Hindu Ramanujan, 'the Prince of Intuition,' tested his brilliant theories alongside the sophisticated and eccentric Hardy, 'the Apostle of Proof'. In time, Ramanujan's creative intensity took its toll: he died at the age of thirty-two and left behind a magical and inspired legacy that is still being plumbed for its secrets today.

A definitive edition of stories by the master of supernatural fiction Howard Phillips Lovecraft's unique contribution to American literature was a melding of traditional supernaturalism (derived chiefly from Edgar Allan Poe) with the genre of science fiction that emerged in the early 1920s. This Penguin Classics edition brings together a dozen of the master's tales-from his early short stories "Under the Pyramids" (originally ghostwritten for Harry Houdini) and "The Music of Erich Zann" (which Lovecraft ranked second among his own favorites) through his more fully developed works, "The Dunwich Horror," The Case of Charles Dexter Ward, and At the Mountains of Madness. The Thing on the Doorstep and Other Weird Stories presents the definitive corrected texts of these works, along with Lovecraft critic and biographer S. T. Joshi's illuminating introduction and notes to each story. For more than seventy years, Penguin has been the leading publisher of classic literature in the English-speaking world. With more than 1,700 titles, Penguin Classics represents a global bookshelf of the best works throughout history and across genres and disciplines. Readers trust the series to provide authoritative texts enhanced by introductions and notes by distinguished scholars and contemporary authors, as well as up-to-date translations by award-winning translators.

In this award-winning, lighthearted drama, Archangel Michael, the celestial defender of humanity, finds his job on the line. The High Council in Heaven is about to strip him of his wings because things on Earth are going to hell. Michael is about to lose his position to Semyaza, the evil Lord of Darkness and leader of the fallen angels. Nicole, an innocent, yet bumbling untrained angel volunteers to be a flight attendant to help Michael in his final campaign. She quickly learns what makes Michael's airline unique is a seat assignment system specifically designed to allow passengers the opportunity to balance their heavy karmic and emotional baggage with their assigned seatmate--not only from this lifetime, but from past and future lives as well. With the right person sitting on the right flight in the right seat, the traveling public is unaware that they are being served by angels and being given the opportunity to learn their soul's most important lessons before they reach their destination. Caught in the vicious clash of the Dark against the Light, Nicole loses her own battle when she succumbs to the worldly temptations offered by Semyaza. In this harrowing race against time, Michael is now forced to choose between saving humanity or saving Nicole, the young, vulnerable angel who he secretly desires. With Semyaza's plans running on time and on course, who does Michael chose? And who saves him from his own pending demise? Find out in Flying Between Heaven and Earth! Congratulations to Gina E.
