We survived the land of the Witch’s Reign - that much is true. But our arrival home is far from welcome. My idiot brother has taken it upon himself to ride off in search of a mythical healer, someone who might help him walk again. Assuming she doesn’t eat him first. Because she’s a dragon and happens to reside in the deepest reaches of the Dragon’s Ground. Like I said, idiot. I’d go after him myself, but his leaving is not the only problem I face. My mentor has forbidden me to leave the safety of the Stockyards. Her reasoning? That I am too weak to weather the coming storms. With my pride wounded in more ways than one, I must gather the few allies’ I have left. My ex-husband's new girlfriend at the top of the list and a goat bleating Satyr. FML. If I’m lucky I’ll find a small dragon and a Jinn whose blue eyes still haunt my dreams along the way. Buckle up, buttercup, this ride is about to take a seriously unforeseen twist. 1.

From best-selling author Francesca Lia Block, an imaginative new guide to dating based on the timeless wisdom of myth, folklore, and fairy tales. Navigating the world of dating can be like wandering an enchanted forest, full of creatures with peculiar habits and baffling behavior. In Wood Nymph Seeks Centaur, Francesca Lia Block provides a guide to this often-treacherous terrain, classifying all those mystifying men and women into various types of mythical forest fauna - Fauns and Werewolves, Mermaids and Banshees. After answering questions to determine your own type, you can learn to identify others. By learning about the various types’ favorite activities, likely professions, sexual preferences, and parenting styles, you’ll gain insight into compatible creatures. If you’re a Wood Nymph (like Block), you could get your heart broken by a fickle Satyr, but if you can track down the strong, soulful Centaurs of the forest, you just might be on the path to true love. Clever and insightful, Wood Nymph Seeks Centaur is an invaluable guide for any dating creature. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Lisa Renee Pitts.

Turn the phone off, lock yourself away, and give your mind the holiday it deserves from the cares and stresses of this world when you read the latest volume of cult author Tom Slemen’s Haunted Liverpool. It is always an event when Tom publishes a new book and this one is definitely no exception. In this chilling volume of more than 30 chapters - with many chapters containing more than one story - you will meet the Faceless Bride of Lime Street and you will also be introduced to Anfield’s unknown ghostly woman before visiting the creepy establishment known as The Devil’s Arms, where everything is just too good to be true. You will not find the usual hackneyed stories of supernatural cliché in this volume; you will find extraordinary and sometimes surreal terror lurking that will play on your mind and possibly inspire a nightmare or two. You will be greeted by the terrifying Tickler - a bizarre entity which attempts to tickle his victims to death, and you will learn about the Yovar - a race of ancient beings who are said to be even more evil than the Devil. There are accounts of timeslips in this amazing book and tales of witchcraft, possession and nercomancy; furthermore, you will listen to two spine-chilling accounts of haunted sleepovers and an unearthly story about two strange deities who resurrected a heroin addict. Lose yourself in the uncanny story of the teenager who fell in love with a satyr, but peruse the chapter on omens of death at your own risk, and do not dwell too long on the unsettling accounts of the ghost that gets around - the Night Maiden - or she may pay you a visit. These are just some of the terrors you will encounter in Haunted Liverpool 30.... 1. Language: English. Narrator: Nigel Peever.

Die moderne Literaturkritik hat Thomas Shadwell, einen der geachtetsten und erfolgreichsten Dramatiker und Satiriker der Restaurationszeit, nur zu häufig in die Rolle eines geistlosen Apologeten libertinistischen Lebensstils gedrängt. Die vorliegende Studie revidiert dieses traditionelle Bild entscheidend, indem sie erstmals Shadwells eigene Ansätze zu einer legislativen Poetik rekonstruiert und zum Maßstab seines dichterischen Schaffens macht. Hierbei zeigt sich eine bislang übersehene gedankliche Einheit von Shadwells Postulat der Bühne als moralischer Anstalt und seinem satirisch-komödiantischen Werk, das den Libertin und seine Verstöße gegen die sittliche Wertordnung der Gesellschaft der Lächerlichkeit preisgibt.
