Always positive, Buni doesn’t understand that the cute world he lives in is usually out to get him. The girl he loves loves someone else. And his best intentions never seem to work. Yet he wakes up each day hopeful. Together with his cynical dad and determined dog, he inhabits a surreal world populated by teddy bears, cupcakes, unicorns, and zombies. With few words, these comics rely on images to tell the story, which is often twisted, sad and funny all at the same time. But more than anything, they show that nothing will keep Buni down. Because true happiness is a state of mind.

In the Arabic literature, there is the Barhatiah conjuration. The conjuration got its name from the first sacred name in its list of names. Their fame is where any similarity between them ends. The Lesser Banishing Ritual of the Pentagram (LBRP) ritual is a known quantity with a well defined and specific purpose, with a clear historical origin; it is easily translatable, contains mainstream religious names and symbolism, and is suited for beginners in Golden Dawn inspired occultism. The Barhatiah is a conjuration that is shrouded in myth, of unknown origin; it has a multitude of variations, has names that have yet to be properly translated over the span of 8oo years, and is useful for a multitude of purposes with promised great effectiveness.

The sixth book in Kegan Paul International's "Korean Culture Series", this volume contains thirty stories that have been selected on the basis of historical interest and literary worth, each representing a monumental moment in the history of Korean Literature. The ten stories in the first part share the common theme of the Korean experience of the confrontation between man and woman; in some stories the relationship is portrayed as innocent and pure, in others the relationship becomes more sophisticated and complex. The ten stories in the second part all deal with old Korean or the old Korean way of life - the Korea of byegone days, which is gradually disappearing in the face of industrialization and internationalization. The third group of stories reveals modern Korea in the process of change during the period of the Japanese Occupation, the liberation from the Occupation, and the Korean War. All thirty stories may serve as social documents. From the time of ideological chaos following the independence of Korea in 1945 up to the fall of the USSR in the 1980s, modern Korean literature has been powerfully swayed by Marxist ideology one way or another. Literature has an important role to play in its portrayal of the relations between society and individual people, and it has a particularly vital social function in developing or undeveloped countries. However, the stories in this anthology are not just historical documents. They represent the peak of literary achievements by great and gifted writers in the first half of this century. It is remarkable to find so many talented writers producing so many powerful works of art in a short span of just over 50 years between 1908 and 1965. This anthology is an invitation to readers to grasp how much Korea has attained in the process of its modernization. The authors whose works appear in this volume are: Yi Kwang-su, Kim Dong-in, Hyun Chin-kon, Yi Hyo-suk, Kim Yu-jong, Yi Sang, Kim Dong-ni, O Yung-su, Hwang Sun-won, Sohn, So-hi, Hahn Mu-suk, Sunwu Hwi, Kang Shin-jae, Oh Sang-won, Suh Ki-won, Han Mal-suk, Choi In-hun, Kim sung-ok, Yi Mun-ku.

Amintiri din anii mei buni şi răi

Barbu Ollănescu-Orendi s-a născut în 1934, într-o familie din înalta societate bucureşteană, cu rădăcini în vechi familii boiereşti din Ţara Românească şi Moldova, care au dat ţării avocaţi, ofiţeri superiori, profesori universitari şi oameni politici. A primit o educaţie severă, nimic neobişnuit pentru elita noastră de atunci: şcoală în limba franceză, cursuri de dans, de scrimă şi de echitaţie, cercetăşie în munţi, maniere impecabile. Cursul firesc al vieţii lui s-a rupt însă în 1944, când, de fapt, întreaga elită românească a fost pusă în faţa duşmanului ei natural: comunismul. De atunci familia sa a fost încontinuu hăituită de Securitate, iar în 1960 inevitabilul s-a produs: şi el, şi părinţii săi, şi rudele au fost închişi pentru „uneltire împotriva orânduirii sociale“. După eliberarea din închisoare, reintegrarea s-a dovedit imposibilă. În 1977 a urmat plecarea din ţară, dar nu şi o rupere definitivă de trecut. Scrise la îndemnul celor apropiaţi, printre care soţia sa, Renate, şi nepoata sa, Oana Pellea, care i-au fost şi cele dintâi cititoare, amintirile povestesc despre politicienii de altădată, despre ofiţerii eleganţi ai armatei române, despre casele celor de sus, despre cluburile sportive elitiste, despre destinele distruse şi despre micile stratageme zilnice ale supravieţuirii în comunism.

Out of the Transylvania Night

In an epic tale of identity and the indomitable human spirit, OUT OF THE TRANSYLVANIA NIGHT explores tyranny, freedom, love, success, and the price paid for misaligned dreams. An incredibly powerful memoir. 'I'd grown up in the land of TRANSYLVANIA, homeland to Dracula, Vlad the Impaler, and, worse, the Communist dictator, Nicolae Ceausescu—who turned Romania into a land of gray-clad zombies who never dared to show their individuality, and where neighbors became informants, and the Securitate made people disappear. Daylight empowered the regime to encircle us like starved wolves, and so night had always been the time to steal a bit of freedom. As if bred into our Transylvanian blood, we were like vampires who came to life after sundown. I buried the family heirloom jewels, tucked the flag into my sweater and left my outpost to join the action . . . tonight Ceausescu would die!' Known for using stand-ins to pose for him, Aura doubts if it was even Ceausescu himself who was killed that night. Nevertheless, when her countrymen topple one of the most draconian regimes in the Soviet bloc, Aura Imbarus tells herself that life post-revolution will be different. But little in the country changes. With two pieces of luggage and a powerful dream, Aura and her new husband flee to America. Through sacrifice and hard work, the couple acquire a home, cars, and travel—but trying to be Americans is much more complicated than they expect. More difficulties set in: the stock market crash takes their savings, house, and cars; thieves steal three centuries' worth of heirloom jewels; and Aura's beloved mother dies. Aura's marriage crumbles under the stress. Devastated, she asks herself, 'How much of one's life is owed to others?' Tested even further by the vagaries of fate, Aura discovers a startling truth about striking a balance between one's dreams and the sacrifices and compromises that allow for serenity, selfhood, and lasting love. More resolution comes when in 2010, Ceausescu's body is exhumed to answer questions of a cover-up, and Aura can finally lay to rest the haunting mysteries of her past.
