Winner of the Colorado Book Award; Winner of the Willa Literary Award As heard on Public Radio International's The Writer's Almanac! Full of music and evocative word play, Veronica Patterson's Swan, What Shores? offers alluring poems varied in form and inventive in approach. In language that is both precise and lyrical, Patterson's work, like much of the best poetry, plumbs the human condition with depth, wit, and, above all, compassion. The poems offer fine surprises, from the lyrical litany of "The Riddle of My Want" ("the stride of your eyes / a summering of skin") to the unusual elegy "Three Photographs Not of My Father" to the mysteries embodied in "Where Are My Swans?": "All movement in their dreams is theirs / that glide-without-haste, for what core of the universe / has to hurry?" Swan, What Shores? marks the blossoming of a major poetic talent.

Buddha & Shakespeare recounts, in one of the more dramatic narratives that you will likely ever come across, the epic nature of both Love and War. Each of which befalls us, most often unexpectedly. It is the story, then, of our being-human, as told through the lives of two princes who come to find themselves caught up in the throes of battles that seem to have found them, as much or more than they have found those battles. One prince from the East: Siddhartha, Guatama, the Buddha-to-be. The other prince from the West: Hamlet, the Prince of Denmark, heir to Elsinore. Both of these young men-children of royalty-find themselves transformed at the hands of a breath-stealing revelation. Siddhartha encounters suffering for the first time. Hamlet's world is devastated by a King's passing-and the news from his father's ghost that he has been the victim of a murderous conspiracy. Something is afoul. Something is not quite right in each of their worlds any longer. We know that this one thing holds for both princes: that the worlds these young men had once inhabited will be home for them no more. That everything they had ever known up to the moment of revelation has just been radically transformed in relation to a knowledge of things that neither of them has ever had before. How this all plays out unfolds in the pages of Buddha & Shakespeare. That nothing will be the same again. That everything has changed. That this is the exact same moment of revelation that confronts each and every one of us at some point in our lives: the impossibility of our ever going back; or pretending that we don't know what we know, and haven't seen what we have in moments of excruciating clarity.

Family secrets are locked away at the intimidating Virginia estate of a prima ballerina in this suspenseful tale from a New York Times–bestselling author. Susan Prentice is a young nurse at a crossroads. She’s broken off an engagement, the father who raised her has just died, and now she’s leaving the western shores behind for a trip to her family’s home on Virginia’s Northern Neck—where she saw her mother fall to her death twenty-five years ago. There, Susan’s grandmother, former ballet diva Alexandrina “Alex” Vargas Montoro, proves a formidable sentinel for the family’s mysterious history. At first welcomed by her long-estranged relatives, spied on by suspicious neighbors, and drawn to Peter, Alex’s handsome young doctor, Susan has nothing but questions. And for every answer, there’s a warning—and the fear that she has only Peter to trust in. But even the doctor’s past is shaded with murder. Soon Susan will discover that she alone holds the key to her mother’s suspicious death, hidden away in her shattered memories. And someone intimately close to her is prepared to bury the truth forever. The Ebony Swan is a “carefully crafted novel of psychological suspense by . . . [a] Mystery Writers of America Grand Master” (Publishers Weekly). This ebook features an illustrated biography of Phyllis A. Whitney including rare images from the author’s estate.

The year was 793 A.D., the day being the eight of the first month of that year. They dismembered his body into pieces, the skin clad man sobbed. The murderers dragged and carried every piece of him on the frozen ice, to the centre of the lake. They broke the ice and created a hole. He howled in despair. They threw his remains under the ice and into the waters of the dark and forbidding lake. I implore, O Almighty Creator, cried the eternal queen, for revenge and seek nothing else... ...Astrid is no more. Henceforth, my daughter, you will be known as Jasmine! Gullvieg revealed. Forever you shall remain a youthful, beautiful bloom; though one that conceals within it the wrath of a vengeful god.

The phantom was not an intruder who had vanquished Nash and his bandits! The figure was not a mysterious man, disguised in a gown with a cowl but an unusual, beautiful and powerful girl. She had personified all that was gracious, wonderful and compassionate about womanhood. Yet, she was an enigmatic and terrifying figure who practiced violent justice. "Those who ascend mountains seeking pleasure must know, that peaks can be treacherous," said Jasmin quietly. "These lecherous men heinously soared to dizzying heights. They have fallen to perilous depths." Flames flickered in her eyes as the blood of wicked men dripped from her incredible sword!

The Arctic century is upon us. A great jockeying for power and influence has erupted among nations in the high north. At stake are trillions of dollars in profit or loss, US security, geopolitical influence and the fate of a fragile environment as well as the region's traditional people. As the ice melts and oil companies venture north, the polar regions may become the next Panama Canal, the next Arabian Peninsula-places on earth that remain relatively unknown in one century and become pivotal in the next. Now Shell oil plans to sink exploratory wells in the pristine waters off the North Slope of Alaska-a site that the company believes contains three times as much oil as the Gulf of Mexico. THE ESKIMO AND THE OIL MAN tells this story through the eyes of two men, one an Iñupiat Eskimo leader on Alaska's North Slope, the other the head of Shell Oil's Alaska venture. Their saga is set against the background of an undersea land rush in the Arctic, with Russian bombers appearing off Alaska's coast, and rapid changes in ice that put millions of sea mammals at risk. The men's decisions will affect the daily lives of all Americans, in their cities and towns and also in their pocketbooks. The story begins as a fight and ends with a surprise. In the spirit of Thomas L. Friedman's Hot, Flat, and Crowded, bestselling author Bob Reiss traveled in America's High North over three years and spent time with scientists, diplomats, military planners, Eskimo whale hunters and officials at the highest levels of the government. He traveled to remote villages and sailed on a US icebreaker. THE ESKIMO AND THE OIL MAN reflects the issues dividing every American community wrestling with the balance between energy use and environmental protection, our love of cheap gas and the romance of pristine wilderness.

Psychiatrist Andrew Marlow, devoted to his profession and the painting hobby he loves, has a solitary but ordered life. When renowned painter Robert Oliver attacks a canvas in the National Gallery of Art and becomes his patient, Marlow finds that order destroyed. Desperate to understand the secret that torments the genius, he embarks on a journey that leads him into the lives of the women closest to Oliver and a tragedy at the heart of French Impressionism. Kostova's masterful new novel travels from American cities to the coast of Normandy, from the late 19th century to the late 20th, from young love to last love. THE SWAN THIEVES is a story of obsession, history's losses, and the power of art to preserve human hope.

Sex is the rhythm of life.” In this essential book written by Soham Hamsa (pseudonym), we hear a friendly voice from the Himalayas directed to all those who are genuine truth seekers and lovers of life anywhere on this planet, containing a deep concern for their naturality and attitude toward sex and sexuality. It is obvious that the author has access to a unique knowledge and oral tradition from India and the Himalayas, which for a major part never before have been made known to the public. The book, which all the way through is logical in its composition, is straight to the point with a variety of practical exercises, and with its size, compactness, easily understood illustrations and richly furnished glossary, it really acts as a handy manual on the subject. And as such, it is probably the only really authoritative work in its field.
