Offbeat Crimes: Part Two Box Set by Angel Martinez Summary

Offbeat Crimes: Part Two Feral Dust Bunnies An orphaned kitten may be the only witness to romance and the impossible. Officer Alex Wolf responds to a lot of &‘paranormal' calls that aren't. Exotic pet birds aren't monsters and unusual dog breeds aren't aliens. It's a good thing he likes the Animal Control officers, but he both yearns for and dreads those calls where he runs into ACO Jason Shen. Jason's scent is so delicious that Wolf has a difficult time humaning around him. Animal Control calls take a disturbing turn, though, when Wolf and his lizard-man partner, Krisk, discover the impossibly mummified bodies of rats and an unfortunate mother cat. The rescue of the cat's sole surviving kitten not only gives Wolf more time with Jason, which is both perplexing and wonderful, but also leads to dangerous discoveries. Something inconceivable stalks the city and its officers of the law. Wolf has to figure out what it is before it can attack and drain the life from the people and the kitten he loves. Jackalopes and Woofen-Poofs Hoax animals and a consulting vampire on the prowl—ACO Jason Shen never thought having a cop boyfriend would be this hard. All Animal Control Officer Jason Shen ever wanted was a quiet life of rescuing lost kittens and helping animals in need. Having a paranormal cop boyfriend guarantees an end to the quiet part. What at first seems like a random encounter with jackalopes in the park might be more than chance and when State Paranormal sends a handsome, charming vampire to consult with the Seventy-Seventh, he finds his relationship with Alex on shaky ground. Officer Alex Wolf hoped his humaning skills were improving but now he can't unravel the strange politics at State Paranormal or why Jason's family seems to hate him. There's no time to puzzle things out, either. Bizarre animals are loose in the city, Jason's acting strange—and is the vampire captain from State flirting with him? Wolf's going to have to keep his head in the game if he's going to have any chance of putting the pieces together and keeping the city safe from the strange critters terrorizing its streets. All the World's an Undead Stage Old actors never die' shouldn't be literally true. Carrington Loveless III, skim-blood vampire and senior officer of Philly's paranormal police department, has long suspected that someone's targeting his squad. The increasingly bizarre and dangerous entities invading their city can't be a coincidence. So when a walking corpse spouting Oscar Wilde attacks one of his officers, Carrington's determined to uncover the evil mind behind it all. As a rare books librarian, Erasmus Graham thought he understood some of the stranger things in life. Sharing a life with Carrington has shown him he didn't know the half of it. They've survived attack books and deadly dust bunnies together and got through mostly unscathed. Now his world and his vampire's appear ready to collide again. Books are missing from the Rare Book collection—old tomes of magic containing dangerous summonings and necromancy. He's certain whoever has been stalking the Seventy-Seventh is composing their end game. It's going to take a consolidated effort from paranormal police, librarians and some not-quite-authorized civilians to head off the impending catastrophe.

Beyond the Hero's Journey by Anthony Mullins Summary

Telling a story is simple, right? You take a 'hero' and send them on a 'journey'. There's a beginning, middle and an end. But what if your story doesn't fit into that basic structure? In Beyond the Hero's Journey, BAFTA award-winning screenwriter Anthony Mullins champions one of the most powerful, yet most misunderstood, tools in a writer's toolkit - character arcs. Looking at celebrated films from around the world - including Moonlight, Lady Bird, The Social Network, The Godfather, A Fantastic Woman, Mulholland Drive, Shoplifters, Amour, Inside Llewyn Davis, Call Me By Your Name, Midsommar and The Father - he shows how character arcs not only create the 'emotional shape' of a story, but also offer writers of all levels an incredible variety of narratives that go far beyond the traditional, three-act Hero's Journey. For every writer who has ever felt frustrated by the neat confines of 'how to' guides, the book will teach you how to excel in telling more complex, original and authentic stories, and how to share your own distinctive voice with the world. 'Essential. Don't start writing scripts without it' - Benjamin Law, creator/writer of The Family Law 'A joy to read and a necessary evolution in critical analysis' - Meg O'Connell, co-creator/writer of Retrograde (Please note that this eBook contains multiple diagrams and charts.

The Returning Hero by Simon Hornblower,Giulia Biffis Summary

A recurring and significant theme in ancient Greek literature is that of returns and returning, chiefly - but by no means only - of mythical Greek heroes from Troy. One main, and certainly the most 'marked', ancient Greek word for 'return' is nostos (plural nostoi), from which is derived the English 'nostalgia'. Nostos-related traditions were important ingredients of colonial foundation myths and the theme runs through both ancient Greek prose and poetry from Homer's Odyssey to Lykophron's Alexandra, also leaving traces in the historical record through the archaeological and epigraphical commemoration of nostoi, which played a central part in defining Greek ethnicity and crystallizing personal and communal identities. This volume offers a truly interdisciplinary exploration of the concept of nostos in ancient Greek culture, which draws on its contributors' expertise in ancient Greek (and Roman) history, literature, archaeology, and religion. The chapters examine both literary and material evidence in order to achieve a better understanding of the nature of Greek settlement in the Mediterranean zone, and of sometimes equivocal Greek and Roman perceptions of home, displacement, and returning. The special problems and vocabulary of exile are explored in the long Introduction, which offers an incisive yet accessible overview of the volume's key themes and sets its range of contributions clearly in context: while two chapters are concerned in different ways with emotions and personal identity, making use of the theoretical tool of place-attachment, another demonstrates that failed nostoi can be more interesting than successful examples. Evidential absence can be as important and illuminating as presence, and mythical women, underrepresented in this regard, feature extensively in several chapters, which open up a range of new perspectives on nostos.

How to Become a Hero by Michael Faust Summary

Everyone can become a hero. We have an inbuilt program for it, but few choose to activate it or know where to begin. Learn about your inner hero in terms of Jungian and Freudian psychology, creative writing theory, sympathetic magic, NLP, Nietzsche and existentialism. En route, you will discover the horrors of the ultimate jail - the Panopticon. You will stumble through Derrida's method of deconstruction and learn if you are living in bad faith. Is The Matrix the ultimate hero tale, and Neo the supreme hero? How does Bicameralism, Julian Jaynes's theory that gods once "lived" in the right hemisphere of the human brain fit in with the hero archetype? What is the tragic tale of the Lady of Shalott? This is a book in a controversial series by the Pythagorean Illuminati. Do not read this book if you are a "cheap" person, an Abrahamist, a David Icke conspiracy theorist; if you are close-minded, petty, and a "moaner". The world is sick of people like you. Heroes are never whiners and whingers.

Now they find themselves at odds with a new enigmatic man Marks Karingson, a man powerful enough to defeat death . . . What will your impotent God do? Your God has failed to deliver you from evil a dozen times already. Your prayers are quaint but utterly meaningless. Your worship is misplaced.

I am the sword and the shield that will deliver you from the grip of sorrow. Only I can materialize your dreams, and I will cast away despair and I will do it if I have to send us all to hell first! Send me your lords and your kings, your sisters and your brothers, your bishops and your fools, sinners and saints. Let them all come and be enveloped by my rage! You can have your war, and when it ends, I alone will rise as a goddess from the ashes of dissilience. You shall leave behind. Your lord will grovel in disarray at the power I shall unveil.

Bert Sugar on Boxing by Bert Randolph Sugar Summary

"Entertaining, insightful, and eminently colorful-the next best thing to being at the fights."--New York Sportscene ". . . anyone taking a trip through the sport's hardscrabble past couldn't ask for a better guide..."--The Ring Known as the "guru" of boxing, Bert Randolph Sugar is one of the most charismatic writers ever to capture the drama of the fight on paper. With a passion for the sport that is rivaled only by his talent for writing about it, Bert Sugar is also regarded as the "unofficial historian" of boxing. With his trademark fedora and always-handy cigar, Sugar is a guaranteed ringside presence. His colorful personality and flamboyant mannerisms are unforgettable whether you are meeting him in person or through his writing. Bert Sugar on Boxing brings out his best. Here's but a small sampling of what awaits readers: Many a troubled and troublesome youngster has embraced "The Sweet Science" as a way out, a social staircase out of the mean streets that formed his limited world, fighting his way, bloody hand over bloody hand, up the ladder of acceptance the only way he knows: with his fists. You see, I was raised in a society, many moons ago, which held to two general axioms: That men were stronger; and women, smarter. And if women are so damned smart, why are they interested in having their features rearranged and acquiring cauliflower ears so pronounced they can be covered with hollandaise sauce? I will not be dissuaded from attacking those with souls like the undersides of flat rocks any more than ice can be welded or iron melted. There is no shaking-knee factor here.

The Fear and the Freedom by Keith Lowe Summary

Bestselling historian Keith Lowe's The Fear and the Freedom looks at the astonishing innovations that sprang from WWII and how they changed the world. The Fear and the Freedom is Keith Lowe’s follow-up to Savage Continent. While that book painted a picture of Europe in all its horror as WWII was ending, The Fear and the Freedom looks at all that has happened since, focusing on the changes that were brought about because of WWII—simultaneously one of the most catastrophic and most innovative events in history. It killed millions and eradicated empires, creating the idea of human rights, and giving birth to the UN. It was because of the war that penicillin was first mass-produced, computers were developed, and rockets first sent to the edge of space. The war created new philosophies, new ways of living, new architecture: this was the era of Le Corbusier, Simone de Beauvoir and Chairman Mao. But amidst the waves of revolution and idealism there were also fears of globalization, a dread of the atom bomb, and an unexpressed longing for a past forever gone. All of these things and more came about as direct consequences of the war and continue to affect the world that we live in today. The Fear and the Freedom is the first book to look at all of the changes brought about because of WWII. Based on research from five continents, Keith Lowe’s The Fear and the Freedom tells the very human story of how the war not only transformed our world but also changed the very way we think about ourselves.

A Hero's Christmas Hope by Vivian Arend Summary

This hero needs a holiday miracle or two—and she’s just the one to deliver. A standalone holiday story from New York Times bestselling author Vivian Arend. Single father Ryan Zhao didn’t expect a ghost from his past to literally slide back into his life. His long-time friendship with Madison Joy is a pure, sweet memory, and with the holidays fast approaching, her surprise visit is perfect. Maddy’s a breath of fresh air, full of ideas and enthusiasm—and far too attractive to a lonely man like him. Best friends to lovers might be tempting, but it’s also dangerous since she’s leaving after Christmas. Madison thrives on fixing things. If Ryan insists she stick around and bother him and his adorable daughter for all of December, she’ll do what she can to make his life brighter. Which means reviving their ugly sweater tradition, organizing a not-so-traditional Nutcracker—and fighting to keep from falling in love with her former best friend and his motherless child. She’s already given up her dreams once to help take care of her family. No matter how much he wants her to stay, Ryan refuses to ask her to do it again for him and his little girl. Can holiday magic find a way to take these two lonely hearts from friends to forever?

Narration and Hero by Victor Millet,Heike Sahm Summary

By the early middle ages vernacular aristocratic traditions of heroic narration were firmly established in Western and Northern Europe. Although there are regional, linguistic and formal differences, one can observe a number of similarities. Oral literature disseminates a range of themes that are shared by narratives in most parts of the continent. In all the European regions, this tradition of heroic narration came into contact with Christianity, which led to modifications. Similar processes of adaptation and transformation can be traced everywhere in this field of early European vernacular narrative. But with the increasing specialization of academic fields over the last half century, inter-disciplinary dialogue has become increasingly difficult. The volume is a contribution to renew the inter-disciplinary dialogue about common themes, topics and motifs in Nordic, Roman, Anglo-Saxon and Germanic literature, and about the different methodologies to explore them.

The Hero and Hero-Making Across Genres by Amar Singh,Shipra Tholia,Pravin K Patel Summary

This book critically examines how a Hero is made, sustained, and even deformed, in contemporary cultures. It brings together diverse ideas from philosophy, mythology, religion, literature, cinema, and social media to explore how heroes are constructed across genres, mediums, and traditions. The essays in this volume present fresh perspectives for readers to conceptualize the myriad possibilities the term ‘Hero’ brings with itself. They examine the making and unmaking of the heroes across literary, visual and social cultures —in religious spaces and in classical texts; in folk tales and fairy tales; in literature, as seen in Heinrich Böll’s Und Sagte Kein Einziges Wort, Thomas Brüssig’s Heroes like Us, and in movies, like Christopher Nolan’s Interstellar, Michel Gondry’s Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind and in the short film like Dean Potter's When Dogs Fly. The volume also features nuanced takes on intersectional feminist representations in hero movies; masculinity in sports biopics; taking everyday heroes from the real to the reel, among others key themes. A stimulating work that explores the mechanisms that ‘manufacture’ heroes, this book will be useful for scholars and researchers of English literature, postcolonial studies, cultural studies, film studies, media studies, literary and critical theory, arts and aesthetics, political sociology and political philosophy.

Not Quite a Hero by Lt Col Joseph R. Clark Summary

Since the Korean War ended in 1953, a number of books and articles have been written about the air-to-air battles between the American F-86s and Russian MiGs. Some parts of the stories that appear in those publications are probably true, but many of them contain fantasies, exaggerations and even lies that are both preposterous and demeaning to the Air Force. Unfortunately much of what survives in the West as the history of those epic air battles is found in those partially flawed publications. I was in a position to know what was going on there since I spent a year observing the scene as an F-86 pilot fighting the MiGs with the 51st Fighter Wing. I have written this book because I want to leave history a more complete and honest picture of what went on there. I have been retired for more than fifty years, but my love for the Air Force and loathing for anything that reflects shame or dishonor on that great organization has compelled me to act. Feeling the way I do, writing in an effort to correct and enhance the record is an easy task since I enjoy writing and was reared to place real value in truth, honor and integrity and hate dishonesty, dissembling and deceit.
