Years of inspiration provided by such authors and titles as J.R.R. Tolkien's, The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings and Neil Hancock's, Circle of Light novels, and in keeping with John Marco's, Tyrants and Kings - Paul H. Kogel has poured himself into this, his first novel of The Dylarian Chronicles. In The Mage of Dylar, you will travel with Antis, son of Bynen, Govin of the Estern Forest and his friends, on a journey that will keep you spellbound in mystery and mounting excitement. Zelliach the Grey's great-grandson, Sorrel, has plans for Isle of Dylar that Antis, trained in wizardry by his great grandfather's ghost and the ghost of Creston, the grandest of Grand Masters himself, must thwart in order to save the Isle from being cast into the depths of chaos and despair. The attempt had been made once before, but Nemond the Green had been able to prevent it at the last terrible moment, by sacrificing himself to bring down Zelliach and to save Dylar from his loathsome tyranny. Now, Antis must be prepared to do the same, but it will take all of his power and every smidgen of courage that he and his friends can command. Mage of Dylar is not only about magic, war and victory in battle: It's about maturing and developing through hard work and dedication to become the very best that one can be. It's about friendship, the great value that should be placed upon it and how it can inspire and drive one on when all else fails to do so. It's about courage, devotion and the fortitude to cling to the values and ideals of the family, and how they remain essentially the same from generation to generation.

Bob Dylan

As such an exalted figure, Dylan has been the subject of countless books and intricate scholarship considering various dimensions of both the man and his music. This book places new emphasis on Dylan as a rock star.

Bob Dylan’s contribution to popular music is immeasurable. Venerated as rock’s one true genius, Dylan is considered responsible for introducing a new range of topics and new lyrical complexity into popular music. Without Bob Dylan, rock critic Dave Marsh once claimed, there would be no popular music as we understand it today. As such an exalted figure, Dylan has been the subject of countless books and intricate scholarship considering various dimensions of both the man and his music. This book places new emphasis on Dylan as a rock star. Whatever else Dylan is, he is a star – iconic, charismatic, legendary, enigmatic. No one else in popular music has maintained such star status for so long a period of time. Showing how theories of stardom can help us understand both Bob Dylan and the history of rock music, Lee Marshall provides new insight into how Dylan’s songs acquire meaning and affects his relationship with his fans, his critics and the recording industry. Marshall discusses Dylan’s emergence as a star in the folk revival (the “spokesman for a generation”) and the formative role that Dylan plays in creating a new type of music – rock – and a new type of star. Bringing the book right up to date, he also sheds new light on how Dylan’s later career has been shaped by his earlier star image and how Dylan repeatedly tried to throw off the limitations and responsibilities of his stardom. The book concludes by considering the revival of Dylan over the past ten years and how Dylan’s stardom has developed in a way that contains, but is not overshadowed by, his achievements in the 1960s.

American Magic and Dread

"A strongly argued analysis and close reading of Delillo's works.

Don DeLillo once remarked to an interviewer that his intention is to use "the whole picture, the whole culture," of America. Since the publication of his first novel Americana in 1971, DeLillo has explored modern American culture through a series of acclaimed novels, including White Noise (1985; winner of the American Book Award), Libra (1988), and Underworld (1997). For Mark Osteen, the most bracing and unsettling feature of DeLillo's work is that, although his fiction may satirize cultural forms, it never does so from a privileged position outside the culture. His work brilliantly mimics the argots of the very phenomena it dissects: violent thrillers and conspiracy theories, pop music, advertising, science fiction, film, and television. As a result, DeLillo has been read both as a denouncer and as a defender of contemporary culture; in fact, Osteen argues, neither description is adequate. DeLillo's dialogue with modern institutions, such as chemical companies, the CIA, and the media, respects their power and ingenuity while criticizing their dangerous consequences. Even as DeLillo borrows from their discourses, he maintains a tenaciously opposing stance toward the sources of collective power.
