This book addresses the philosophies of Alain Badiou, Gilles Deleuze, and Alfred North Whitehead in relation to the concepts of event, ontology and politics. For Whitehead, the event is the realization of becoming, the actualization of the “groundless ontological ground” of creativity, the process of self-decision on possibilities yet undecided, the aesthetic and ethical impulse of existence. For Deleuze it is the expression of life without possession, bodies without organs, the virtual or actual reality of singularity and novelty. For Badiou, the event breaks from the situation, in which we always count (reality) as one and multiplicity as united. For all three thinkers, the event necessitates a radical politics that critiques traditional ontologies of social bodies, cultures, and art. The perspective that emerges from the book is of humanity constituted by, but also constituting a multiplicious event cycle: each person and thing bringing their own personal event into their experience of an event outside of themselves. The convergence of this multiplicity creates our complex world—a complexity not defined as aporia or impossibility, but rather infinity—that is always already still creating. Event and Decision offers the reader a live experience of this evental theory, an experience that mirrors the event of three philosophers themselves. And if the mirror you peer into shows you something foreign, something different than what you know as yourself, then this difference makes reading the book easy. The only impossibility is to lose your way.

A Country Christmas (formerly published as Honeycote) Homemade mulled wine, freshly baked mince pies and plenty of Christmas cheer... It's the most wonderful time of the year, they say. And in the little Cotswolds village of Honeycote, the festive season looks set to bring people more than a few surprises under the tree. As Lucy Liddiard plans the festive lunch for her nearest and dearest, she has little idea of the dramas about to play out before the crackers are pulled and the corks popped. She knows the family brewery, Honeycote Ales, has seen better days. She knows her husband, Mickey, is an incorrigible flirt. But does she realise how close both are edging towards disaster? As the nights draw in, garlands deck the halls and the carols ring out, there are secrets and lies, love and lust all waiting to be unwrapped. Welcome to Honeycote, and a Christmas no one will ever forget... A Country Life (formerly published as Making Hay) A new home, a new circle of friends, a new chance at happiness? Suzanna and Barney Blake are swapping city life for the countryside, determined to breathe new life into the Honeycote Arms and a marriage touched by tragedy. Recently separated Ginny Tait is also seeking solace in country living, desperate to rein in her rambunctious twin daughters. They all think that moving to a calm, quiet and beautiful village in the Cotswolds will solve their problems. But in Honeycote, things are never quite as they appear . . . A Country Wedding (formerly published as Just a Family Affair) It was supposed to be a quiet country wedding. The village church, a marquee in the garden and a few carefully chosen guests. But no sooner have the invitations gone out than trouble arrives uninvited . . . Bride-to-be Mandy is clashing with her mother who has very different ideas about what constitutes the perfect wedding. And despite his honourable intentions, the groom Patrick is getting cold feet... Then a ghost from the past turns up with a very unexpected guest indeed. As the champagne goes on ice and the church bells ring out, it looks set to be a perfect day. Everyone loves a wedding, don't they?

“Very well written, I am really enjoying it. I have been so impressed by the writers and their passion for the subject” – Mick Foley, wrestling legend and bestselling author "Expert contributions that unexpectedly and thoroughly cover a treasure trove of topics. This reader was euphoric over the amount of subject matter jam-packed into this important and long overdue collection" - Jamie Hemmings, Book Editor for "The quality of writing at its best was really good, a lot to think about. A flat out really good read." - Bruce Mitchell, Senior Columnist - Pro Wrestling Torch 99.9% of professional wrestling books are written by men about male performers in a male-dominated business. This book aims to help correct the balance, giving a voice to women and fans of women’s wrestling, showing women in the ring are just as captivating to watch and that female fans are just as passionate. Women Love Wrestling is a collection of writing from women and about women in wrestling, written by fans, wrestlers, podcasters, promoters, journalists, culture critics, PhDs and academics. Women Love Wrestling is a mix of wrestling history, personal stories and studies of professional wrestling. We focus on women’s wrestling of course, but include stories from the wider world, including lost Victorian legends and reflections on how wrestling can be compared to the masterpieces of Shakespeare. Learn about how to watch joshi, how women train to wrestle, how promoting all-women shows requires a different approach, how wrestling fandom creates gender-bending art and cosplay, the history of GLOW, AJW, Shimmer and EVE, issues with diversity, the slow progress being made with gender equality and more thanks to our diverse team of writers. The profits from this book are donated to RAINN and Women's Aid
