The Libyan landscape is one of the most diverse and breathtaking, replete with barren deserts, vast ocean coasts, and a stunning display of earth’s elements. Ibrahim al-Koni, an award-winning and critically acclaimed Arabic writer, reflects on this fragile environment and the increasing threats to its existence in A Sleepless Eye, a collection of the poet’s desert wisdom. He highlights the relationships between humans and Libya’s natural features, grouping them by theme: nature, desert, water, sea, wind, rock, trees, and fire. Each theme contains a set of aphorisms which deliver thoughtful perspectives on what it means to coexist with an evolving planet. This volume is the result of the author’s collaboration with the celebrated French nature photographer, Alain Sèbe, and English translator Roger Allen. The product is a body of work that calls upon readers to question their relationship with the earth through meditative ideas and photos, familiarizing English readers with the fundamental philosophies of environmental stewardship that transcend all boundaries.

The more Teryl Gray learns about the true nature of the world around her, the more dangerous her life becomes. Now she is in the wilderness of Missouri, hunting a creature she's only heard of in passing on the internet: the Rake.Far from being an internet legend, the Rake is a supernatural being of power and immense hunger-hunger for the flesh of humans. The trouble is, a Rake can only be made by one of the Forlorn: immortal creatures like Teryl's boss, Ware. Did he create the Rake and leave it to ravage the countryside? Or was it made by someone else, someone like him, who may have a score to settle with an old enemy?Teryl will have to help capture and subdue a creature that has far more power than she, and an appetite to match. What can she do when forces beyond her control continue to threaten her and all she holds dear?
