From the acclaimed author of ‘A Father’s Story’: A boy looks to the Catholic Church for understanding as his family weathers two failed marriages. Voices from the Moon opens amidst the fallout of Stowe family patriarch Greg’s divorce from his wife, Joan; and shortly after, that of their eldest son, Larry, from his wife, Brenda. On the verge of adolescence, young Richie Stowe grapples to make sense of these events and their consequences, and seeks solace in the church. As the family attempts to mend itself and move forward, its members are forced to reconcile their feelings of betrayal with their enduring love for one another. Masterfully related from the alternating perspectives of its six main characters, Dubus’s richly drawn novella recounts a family’s failure to abide by those laws divined and decreed, and its path to redemption via understanding and forgiveness. This ebook features an illustrated biography of Andre Dubus including rare photos and never-before-seen documents from the author’s estate.

First published in 1965, this brilliant, prescient book is divided into three sections: The first concerns space travel and other aspects of the new space age: how our concept of time must be modified when we travel long distances, the space seas of tomorrow, uses of the moon, how lower gravity will affect the sports of space colonists and other fascinating ideas. The second part is about communications satellites, a field in which the author has already played the role of true prophet. The third section ranges widely over the side implications of the space age - scientific meddling, the lunatic fringe and the moral obligations of scientists.

Voices from the Delaware Big House Ceremony examines and celebrates the Big House ceremony, the most important Delaware Indian religious observance to be documented historically. Edited by Robert S. Grumet, this compilation of essays offers diverse perspectives, from both historical documents and contemporary accounts, which shed light on the ceremony and its role in Delaware culture. As Grumet says, "The many voices brought together in this book produce something more akin to a chorus than a chant." The annual fall festival known as the "Gamwing" (Big House) was the center of life for Delaware Indian communities in Pennsylvania, Ohio, and Indiana west to Ontario and Oklahoma. The last ceremony was performed by the Eastern Oklahoma Delaware community in 1924. Determined to preserve their traditions for future generations, Delaware Big House followers have worked with anthropologists to preserve Big House texts, rituals, songs, and sacred objects. Including commentaries by Delaware traditionalists from communities in Oklahoma, Wisconsin, and Ontario, where most descendants of the Big House Church live today, the volume also features an ethnographic description of the Big House ceremony and historical accounts dating from 1655 to 1984. Voices from the Delaware Big House Ceremony contributors and consultants are John Bierhorst, Ruthe Blalock Jones, Marlene Molly Miller, Michael Pace, Bruce L. Pearson, Terry J. Prewitt, James A. Rementer, and Darryl Stonefish.

Are we alone or are there intelligent life-forms out there? Or are they already amongst us? Can we even know the Truth? Exploring the myths, stories, history, and facts of documented encounters, mysterious experiences, and unexplained visitors, Real Visitors, Voices from Beyond, and Parallel Dimensions by Brad Steiger and Sherry Hansen Steiger examines the “other” forms, entities and beings inhabiting our universe. Building on their decades of research into the paranormal, mystical, and supernatural, the Steigers analyze the influences and theories behind these mysterious “visitors,” whether they appear as aliens, ghosts, spirits, angels, demons, monsters, or some other form. The visitors have been called metaterrestrial, extradimensional, interdimensional, ultraterrestrial, and supraphysical intelligences, but regardless of the label, these inscrutable existences have left their mark on the people they've met—and a host of weird, wondrous, and horrifying stories. There are more than 200 thought-provoking stories that make you wonder about the Truth, including stories on UFOs, angels, spirits, ghosts, out-of-body experiences, time-travel, strange energies, dreams, meditation, unidentified terrestrial life forms, and more. Tracing the perplexing and lasting effects of these otherworldly beings, Real Visitors, Voices from Beyond, and Parallel Dimensions exposes their power and reach throughout centuries of legends, myths, and today's world.

»Prosa, wie mit einem rostigen Nagel auf eine Kanne geritzt« The New York Times Eine Frau um die dreißig wird nach zehn Jahren aus dem Gefängnis entlassen und erkämpft sich einen Platz in der Gesellschaft. Ein literarisches Meisterwerk, das von der Kritik international als beeindruckende Neuentdeckung gefeiert wird. Mehr als einen neuen Namen besitzt Louise Adler, genannt Lulu, nicht, als sie nach zehn Jahren endlich in die Freiheit entlassen wird. Mit Gelegenheitsjobs hält sie sich über Wasser, doch brechen sich die Erinnerungen an Kindheit und Jugend immer wieder Bahn: an die egozentrische Mutter und den gewalttätigen Vater, an die erste Liebe und Zusammenbrüche. Als Lulu Wiedergutmachung für die abgesessene Zeit im Gefängnis erhält, reist sie an den Sehnsuchtsort ihrer Kindheit, die Mondberge in Zentralafrika. In dieser großartigen Landschaft versucht sie, die Teile ihrer zerrütteten Seele wieder zusammenzusetzen. I.J. Kay ist ein besonderer Roman gelungen, der sprachlich an William Faulkner, in der Kompromisslosigkeit seiner Frauenfigur an Stieg Larsson und in seiner Unbarmherzigkeit an Sarah Kane erinnert und doch etwas ganz Eigenes ist: ein großartiger Text über ein Leben jenseits der gesellschaftlichen Ordnung.

The forces of the independent Zulu kingdom inflicted a crushing defeat on British imperial forces at Isandlwana in January 1879. The Zulu army was not, however, a professional force, unlike its British counterpart, but was the mobilised manpower of the Zulu state. In this ground-breaking study, Ian Knight details just how the Zulu army functioned and ties its role firmly to the broader context of Zulu society and culture. After surveying the Zulu army from its creation during the wars of Shaka in the early nineteenth century, and the subsequent development of Zulu fighting methods, Ian Knight focuses in detail on the structure and condition of the Zulu army on the eve of the war in 1879. This indispensable book describes such key topics as enlistment, organisation, training and equipment. He also considers Zulu war aims and strategy, their view of artillery and cavalry, and how they were perceived by their colonial neighbours. Most of all, he reveals how the Zulu army functioned in wartime, from preparatory rituals to battlefield tactics, and the shock of battle itself.

“VOCE DI PRORA”, Diary of a Sailor The author, Bruno Temperoni, in an autobiographical book, recalls his years in service for the Italian Royal Navy during the Second World War – Readers are invited to be witnesses of the years of military service of a veteran during World War II that render him an involuntary participant in the history and the makings of a new free world. In Voice from the Bow, Bruno Temperoni meticulously compiles in a diary, his military experiences in the Italian Royal Navy taking the audience to the battlefront in a simple but skillful way. Enlisted in May 1938, Temperoni recounts daily episodes of his life as a sailor on board of vessel “Freccia”, assigned to a squadron of the Navy. During his twenty-eight months of military service, the author measures up not only to the tragedy of the war, by participating in the Battles of the Mediterranean against England, but also in those clashes with his comrades and superiors that inevitably involve him in a complex, coarse everyday life. Voice from the Bow is not only the ‘diary of a veteran’. Temperoni, in his book narrates episodes of courage and heroic sacrifice of his comrades by proclaiming and honoring their actions. Written originally in Italian it gathers a part of history that should not be forgotten.
