WINNER OF THE PULITZER PRIZE FOR NONFICTION 2020 WINNER OF THE WINDHAM-CAMPBELL PRIZE FOR NONFICTION 2020 FINALIST FOR THE PEN / JEAN STEIN BOOK AWARD 2020 'Profound and unforgettable' Sally Rooney 'A classic . . . I have long thought of Boyer as a genius' Patricia Lockwood 'An outraged, beautiful, and brilliant work of embodied critique' Ben Lerner 'Some of the most perceptive and beautiful writing about illness and pain that I have ever read' Hari Kunzru Blending memoir with critique, an award-winning poet and essayist's devastating exploration of sickness and health, cancer and the cancer industry, in the modern world A week after her 41st birthday, Anne Boyer was diagnosed with highly aggressive triple-negative breast cancer. For a single mother living payslip to payslip, the condition was both a crisis and an initiation into new ideas about mortality and the gendered politics of illness. In The Undying - at once her harrowing memoir of survival, and a 21st-century Illness as Metaphor - Boyer draws on sources from ancient Roman dream diarists to cancer vloggers to explore the experience of illness. She investigates the quackeries, casualties and ecological costs of cancer under capitalism, and dives into the long line of women writing about their own illnesses and deaths, among them Audre Lorde, Kathy Acker and Susan Sontag. Genre-bending, devastating and profoundly humane, The Undying is an unmissably insightful meditation on cancer, the cancer industry and the sicknesses and glories of contemporary life.

THEY HAVE COME FROM THE STARS… In this riveting apocalyptic thriller for fans of The Passage and The Walking Dead, a mysterious event plunges Paris into darkness and a young American must lead her friends to safety—and escape the ravenous “undying” who now roam the crumbling city. Jeanie and Ben arrive in Paris just in time for a festive New Year’s Eve celebration with local friends. They eat and drink and carry on until suddenly, at midnight, all the lights go out. Everywhere they look, buildings and streets are dark, as though the legendary Parisian revelry has somehow short circuited the entire city. By the next morning, all hell has broken loose. Fireballs rain down from the sky, the temperatures are rising, and people run screaming through the streets. Whatever has happened in Paris—rumors are of a comet striking the earth—Jeanie and Ben have no way of knowing how far it has spread, or how much worse it will get. As they attempt to flee the burning Latin Quarter—a harrowing journey that takes them across the city, descending deep into the catacombs, and eventually to a makeshift barracks at the Louvre Museum—Jeanie knows the worst is yet to come. So far, only she has witnessed pale, vampiric survivors who seem to exert a powerful hold on her whenever she catches them in her sights. These cunning, ravenous beings will come to be known as les moribund—the undying—and their numbers increase by the hour. When fate places a newborn boy in her care, Jeanie will stop at nothing to keep the infant safe and get out of Paris—even if it means facing off against the moribund and leaving Ben—and any hope of rescue—behind. **The publisher has provided this ebook to you without Digital Rights Management software (DRM) applied so that you can enjoy reading it on your personal devices.**

Arkhalla There cannot be a world without a Queen. The Undying may be no more – the few of them left hunted and with a price on their heads – but the darkness of their legacy still lives on. Shamath, the hero who saved humanity, roams the earth a man lost, his life turned into a hunt with little purpose. Far across the sea, in the deserts of Egypt, Bel and Narama, both shades of their former selves, struggle to build a new life, yet even the bond between them seems broken. But out of nowhere comes a new chance at life for hero and foe alike. A call from the beyond sends Shamath on a desperate quest, his routing out the Undying now infused with dread urgency. Meanwhile, a miracle brings Narama and Bel promise of peace. Yet the same hopes that revive the three of them threaten to tangle them once more into a fight to the death. The secret Shamath seeks that will lead to the domain of the dread demon Asag lies with his enemies, and he will spare no effort to find it. But if Shamath succeeds in his quest, the world may end in blood and fire, fulfilling, at last, the Dark God’s plan. To bring back to life the Undying Queen herself.

Two eternal beings, magnificently enhaloed, the one in a blinding excess of white radiance and the other in a bewildering extravagance of colours, converse amidst stupendous surroundings. These surroundings are by tradition palatial, but there is now also a marked cosmic tendency about them. They have no definite locality; they are above and comprehensive of the material universe. There is a quality in the scene as if a futurist with a considerable knowledge of modern chemical and physical speculation and some obscure theological animus had repainted the designs of a pre-Raphaelite. The vast pillars vanish into unfathomable darknesses, and the complicated curves and whorls of the decorations seem to have been traced by the flight of elemental particles. Suns and planets spin and glitter through the avanturine depths of a floor of crystalline ether. Great winged shapes are in attendance, wrought of iridescences and bearing globes, stars, rolls of the law, flaming swords, and similar symbols. The voices of the Cherubim and Seraphim can be heard crying continually, "Holy, Holy, Holy."

The Undying “screams for a sequel” (Publishers Weekly)—and Ethan Reid delivers, in this riveting follow-up to “a thriller that brings a genuinely fresh take to a monstrous mythology” (Andrew Pyper, #1 bestselling author of The Demonologist). THE FATE OF THE WORLD IS IN HIS HANDS. The Undying: SHADES finds American student Jeanie and her young charge, Ren, fifteen years after the EMP that wiped out Paris and sent them on the run from the undying. Walking the highways and hiding out in abandoned buildings across France, they eventually find their way to Spain and the walled city of Ronda where a few dozen survivors have gathered—safe enough from the hunting undying, but facing a new threat on the scorched planet: starvation. With their main resource—humans—bordering on extinction, the undying have weakened, retreating to their hives and slowly withering away. But not for long. A dark presence arrives, casting its shadow across Spain, reawakening the hives and creating a new breed of monster. Driven by some alien intelligence, these Shades not only reanimate the undying, but can possess the living, turning survivors against one another. When Ronda comes under attack, Ren saves the day. As the youngest human left on earth, he has been blessed with a special gift that makes him a perfect killing machine—and the last hope of humanity. Forced to leave the safety of the barricades, he takes to the highways with a company of Spaniards who intend to eradicate the undying from Europe, hive by hive, using Ren as their secret weapon. But as they approach Sevilla to face the most powerful Shade yet, Ren learns some in his company aren’t all they appear to be… **The publisher has provided this ebook to you without Digital Rights Management software (DRM) applied so that you can enjoy reading it on your personal devices.**

A widowed water bird in an Amsterdam canal abandoned villages flitting fitfully by as he rides the Eurostar to Paris the sun, averse to setting, extending the you-filled day such are the diverse sources of inspiration for Brinckmanns poetry. Unconstrained by locale or subject matter, his lines celebrate the marvel of love and ponder lifes irretrievable losses. He is no stranger to whimsy either, nor to the search for lifes ultimate meaning. After publishing a highly-acclaimed autobiography (The Magatama Doodle, 2005); a cosmopolitan collection of stories (Noon Elusive, 2006); and a history of postwar Japan (Showa Japan, 2008), Brinckmann now offers his readers this selection of his poetry, written over the past half-century in seven countries. The book ends with the memorable Ballad of Hope Hill, set to music and performed in The Netherlands. Brinckmanns translator, Hiromi Mizoguchi, has rendered the poems into exquisite Japanese, shown side-by-side with the originals. ??????? ??????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????? ???????????????????????????(2005)????????????????????????????????(2008)??????????33???????50???????????????2000?????????????????????????????????????

The Undying Lamp of Zen is a pure and powerful distillation of Zen doctrine and practice written by Torei Enji (1721–1792), a Zen master and artist. Torei was best known as one of two "genius assistants" to Hakuin Ekaku, a towering figure in Zen Buddhism who revitalized the Rinzai school, which focuses on koan practice. Torei was responsible for much of the advanced work of Hakuin’s later disciples and also helped systemize Hakuin’s Zen teachings. The Undying Lamp of Zen includes a range of principles and practices, from the most elementary to the most advanced. It is an indispensable aid to the practice of Rinzai Zen, while also providing tested traditional techniques for public access to Zen experience. Premier translator Thomas Cleary provides a thorough introduction and illuminating footnotes throughout, and his masterful translation lets Torei’s distinctive voice shine through; Torei is energetic, no-nonsense, and full of personality. No other English translations of this classic are available and Zen aficionados will want to add this to their collection.

Not all fairy tales are myths...some are true. My dearest Saffe, I have struggled deeply about whether to write you this letter. I have struggled even more about what I should tell you. I want you to have something to remember me by since I know you are too young to remember the precious little time we had together. I also want you to live your life and dream of your future without the knowledge of the terrible burden that we bear. Please do not hate me for not telling you the truth sooner, I only wanted you to live your life as if you were a normal little girl. Unfortunately, my sweet, sweet child, you are not normal. You are extraordinary, and with that comes a terrible price. I hope your new parents love you half as much as your father and I did because then you will truly be blessed. Your father never got the chance to know you but he loved you a lifetimes worth before you were ever born. I know they will read you fairy tales with princesses and magic. Know that not all fairy tales are myths. Some are true. Some left the most important parts out...

The Undying Queen of Ur tells the story of Arkhalla, an immortal queen that ruled over the lands of Sumer from her mighty ziggurat in the City of Ur for over two centuries at the beginning of the Bronze Age, more than 5,000 years ago. It is the early days of the Sumerian Kingdoms, an era consumed by the flames of countless wars. The ruthless nation of the Undying, the blood feeding masters of Sumer, rule unchallenged over mankind until the day, Shamath, a young human boy is captured in the Queen’s latest war. Shamath is taken captive to the City of Ur and finds himself in the midst of untold horrors committed by the Undying. But it is when the beautiful Queen Arkhalla—intrigued by the youth’s courage and defiance in the face of death—decides to take him as her body slave, that the whole world changes. Little by little, Shamath and Arkhalla’s liaison grows from an abusive master/slave relationship into an unforgettable and dramatic tale of love and redemption. This remarkable tale of a kingdom torn by intrigue and a fascinating cast of characters struggling for dominance is above all a story about love. The love between an immortal queen and a young human slave who overcame impossible odds and the darkness within their own hearts and discovered each other.
