When Stephen is adopted by the mysterious Bethany Andrews, he is thrust into a magical world that coexists alongside the mundane world. After his adoption ritual, he utters a prophecy. The lowborn children shall come, winter will guide them. The children of space and time will hide them. The queen of summer will find them, and the golden kingdom will bind them. Stephen must discover the meaning of this prophecy, and survive the dangerous world he finds himself in. Set during the prelude to World War II, The Voice in his head is an urban fantasy historical fiction novel that will appeal to readers of the Magicians and the Dresden Files.

She can feel sorry for herself. Or she can listen…to the voice in her head. For Indigo Phillips, life has always been about basking in the shadow of her identical twin, Violet—the perfectly dressed, gentle, popular sister. The only problem the girls had in their lives was the occasional chaos that came with being part of the Phillips family brood. But when Violet becomes terminally ill and plans to die on her own terms via medically assisted death, Indigo spirals into desperation in her efforts to cope. That’s when she begins to hear a mysterious voice—a voice claiming to be God. The Voice insists that if she takes Violet to a remote rock formation in the Arizona desert, her sister will live. Incredibly, Violet agrees to go—if their dysfunctional family tags along for the ride. With all nine members stuffed into a wonky old paratransit bus, including their controlling older sister and distant mother, Indigo must find a way to face insecurities she’s spent a lifetime masking and step up to lead the trip. As she deals with outrageous mishaps, strange lodgings and even stranger folks along the way, Indigo will figure out how to come to terms with her sister, her family…and the voice in her head.

Confessional poetry. A book with a lot of heart. A reminder to myself that I exist. "Sallie has such an eloquent way of writing - every word is spun from pearls and gold. Even the most painful topics are written in such a uniquely beautiful way, without romanticizing these topics. With descriptive language and powerful emotions, Sallie gives us a vivid glimpse into her life and her mind - each poem is a single moment, and they all come together to form the story of her life. Although the poems are about specific events she has gone through, many of them are things that anyone (especially women) can relate to. Her poems about mental illness, families, love, relationships, and abuse give a proper homage to all the famous women poets of our past. Sylvia Plath would be proud." -- Jamie Wyman; author of "The Hornets in My Stomach" (@efflorescent_ on Instagram)

The voice traverses Beckett’s work in its entirety, defining its space and its structure. Emanating from an indeterminate source situated outside the narrators and characters, while permeating the very words they utter, it proves to be incessant. It can alternatively be violently intrusive, or embody a calming presence. Literary creation will be charged with transforming the mortification it inflicts into a vivifying relationship to language. In the exploration undertaken here, Lacanian psychoanalysis offers the means to approach the voice’s multiple and fundamentally paradoxical facets with regards to language that founds the subject’s vital relation to existence. Far from seeking to impose a rigid and purely abstract framework, this study aims to highlight the singularity and complexity of Beckett’s work, and to outline a potentially vast field of investigation.
These evaluations end up replacing the question of the voice by allegories, ... Beckett also specifies: 'A dead voice in his head' (Beckett, 1998, 201).

A young man in despair cries out: "Why can't I be gay and still be loved by God?" and God replies: "Yes you can! Yes you are!" Once in a generation there comes a story so rare and beautiful that it changes peoples' lives. the Voice of My Brother's Blood is such a story. David Shepherd is a picture of the perfect son--handsome young teacher in an evangelical Christian ministry. Once caught up in the hedonistic gay lifestyle in San Francisco, David is convinced he has been changed by the will of God. Summoned to counsel a student who refuses to accept traditional Bible teaching on homosexuality, David knew from the moment he looked into the compelling brown eyes of Mark Ward that this defiant young man with the face of an angel would challenge everything he thought he believed. Together David and Mark find themselves swept up in a struggle for justice, searching for the strength to stand against a Goliath of religious bigotry. Liberally referencing the Bible as a weapon for truth, the Voice of My Brother's Blood is a story of adoration and conviction that jerks the sanctimonious foundation out from under religious intolerance. _________________________________________ David Charles Craley is a writer, editor and, for more than four decades, a researcher and teacher of the Bible. the Voice of My Brother's Blood: A Love Story is his third book. the first was the Hope of Glory: In Search of the Light (1979), and the second: the Secret to Holy Spirit Authority: In the Power of the Spirit (2011).

In the third installment of the Girl Genius novels, Agatha H. and the Voice of the Castle begins as Agatha Heterodyne returns to her ancestral home, the warped little town of Mechanicsburg. There she must claim her inheritance by convincing the artificial intelligence that animates her family’s castle that she is, in fact, the new Heterodyne. But this apparently simple task is made complicated in several ways: An imposter claiming to be the legitimate heir appears. The Empire is convinced that Agatha is the person responsible for the Long War (and to be fair, they are not entirely incorrect). And, worst of all, the Castle itself is insane. From the Hugo Award–winning Girl Genius online comics comes this third book in the Agatha H. trilogy; and just like the first two, Agatha H. and the Voice of the Castle will grab you from the first page and not let go!
