Moorcock's second great London novel - and thematic sequel to MOTHER LONDON - returns to print in a newly revised edition. The death of Princess Di heralded a spring clean of the soul. And the dirt we wanted off our coffee tables was the kind of salacious exposure tabloid paparazzo photographer Denny Dover had made a fortune out of. Now he's out of work and moving to the godforsaken wastes of Skerring on the South coast to lick his wounds. A former rock star, this East End lad-made-good lived it up with the best of them. But his childhood friend, hugely wealthy magnate Sir John Barbican-Begg (deceased, allegedly) is resurrecting events from a past littered with dysfunction and greed, sex, rock and roll and a ton of drugs. Denny's life encapsulates the fevered underground of a London teeming with contradiction and ambivalence, subversion and rage. Moorcock's hugely entertaining follow-up to his masterpiece MOTHER LONDON captured the spirit of our age as we staggered into the new millennium.

How to love a gangsta? Rule number don't. Brooklyn native, King Gibbs is the son of a ruthless ex-kingpin and proves to be just as deadly. With his good looks and slick tongue comes much deeply rooted pain. At a young age, he found himself raising his junkie mother when she was supposed to be the one providing love and care to him. But no matter how much of a screw up she was, he understood that this life only gives you one mother. After her death and a domino effect of other unfortunate situations, he packs up and moves to Texas with his step-mother and sister. There he finds more chaos but still manages until circumstances forces his hand, and he's forced to finish what his father started over twenty-one years ago. Roxanne has everything that she needs in life but not everything that she wants. Until she meets King. Every rule that she had, he broke. Each wall she built, he tore down. Clearly, he's no good for her but it's something about him that keeps her intertwined in his world. Roxanne's only wish is to turn his cold heart warm. Unbeknown to her, Kings only wish is the total opposite.

Zion, the City of the Great King

A Theological Symbol of the Jerusalem Cult

While previous research has illuminated the origins and development of the Zion tradition, this book is the first to make a thorough study of Zion as a theological symbol within the larger Jerusalem cult tradition. Drawing primarily on the Psalms and Isaiah of Jerusalem, Ollenburger shows that Zion serves pre-eminently to symbolize the kingship of Yahweh on Zion as creator and defender of world order. As such, Zion serves also to symbolize security and refuge, particularly for the poor. This study constitutes a powerful argument against the tendency of Old Testament theologians to devalue the cosmic Zion symbolism in favour of the historical theology of the exodus, especially when assessing the contemporary import of Old Testament theology. Zion symbolism is anything but an ideological tool legitimating a self-sufficient and self-serving monarchy. Instead it serves as the basis for a radical critique of the projects and pretensions of Judah's royal court.
