Wistful Ascending by J. C. M. Berne Pdf

A superhero space opera for grownups.For fans of Guardians of the Galaxy, Thor (the good one), or Invincible.Did you enjoy Dragonball Z but wish it had a little more hard science fiction in it?The il'Drach Empire spans half a galaxy, built on the feet and fists of their Powered hybrid children. At eight Rohan of Earth learned that he was only half human. By sixteen he was an active superhero, using his inherited powers to fight crime, in mask and spandex. At twenty-two he left his home to fight for the his father's people, expanding the il'Drach Empire and protecting it from local and interdimensional threats. At thirty-two, exhausted by ten years of ruthless warfare, he retired to Wistful, a vast sentient independent space station, to try to live a normal life. With a steady job, someone far out of his league to date, and the most cosmopolitan selection of fine dining in the sector, things are looking up.Then a long dormant wormhole in Wistful's system is opened by a ship full of refugees, drawing unwanted attention from the Empire. The appearance of the refugees sets off a chain of events that will force Rohan to confront his checkered past and cast doubt on whether he can ever leave behind his violent warrior heritage.To keep his friends safe, and himself in one piece, Rohan has to face giant insects, body-skipping assassins, vengeful armored aliens, an inquisition of intelligent bears, and a team of his fellow hybrids. The open question is whether tapping into his savage alien powers will end up destroying the peaceful life he has been trying to build.

Once Upon a Tartan by Grace Burrowes Pdf

"Burrowes delivers red-hot chemistry with a masterful mix of playfulness and sensuality." —Publishers Weekly Honor or happiness—he can't have both. Tiberius Flynn may be every inch an English lord, but smart, headstrong beauty Hester Daniels has no use for his high-handed ways--no matter how handsome, charming, or beguiling he is. They only see eye to eye in caring about the feisty little girl who is under their protection. Tiberius's haughty insistence that his wealthy estate in England is a better place for the child than her beloved, rundown Scotland home sparks Hester's fierce protectiveness, and the battle lines are drawn. Praise for The Bridegroom Wore Plaid, a Publishers Weekly Best Book of the Year: The MacGregor Series The Bridegroom Wore Plaid (Book 1) Mary Fran and Matthew (Novella) Once Upon a Tartan (Book 2) The MacGregor's Lady (Book 3) What a Lady Needs for Christmas (Book 4) "As always, Burrowes creates a character driven novel...The slowly simmering sensuality and the strong bonds of family hold readers' interest and hearts."—RT Book Reviews, 4 stars "Will engage readers with emotion and sensuality...Burrowes has a talent for filling traditional romance situations with depth and the unexpected." —Booklist

The Feminist Difference by Barbara Johnson Pdf

Employing surprising juxtapositions, THE FEMINIST DIFFERENCE looks at fiction by black writers from a feminist/psychoanalytic perspective, at poetry, and at feminism and law. The author presents an unfailingly close reading of moments at which feminism seems to founder in its own contradictions--and moments that reemerge as sources of a revitalized critical awareness.

The Money Demon by Diexian Chen Pdf

“It’s such a pity! I, too used to think of money and love as entirely separate things.” So begins this popular autobiographical novel, written by litterateur, inventor, and business tycoon Chen Diexian (1879–1940), a remarkable intellectual whose life spanned the old China and the new. Chen’s novel is the story of his youth, and in it he chooses to focus on his amorous and erotic development—a rare subject in Chinese literature—revealing his passage from innocent boy, surrounded by females, to young man, armed with a new attitude toward money, business, and the women in his life. Chen’s unusual narrative, intimately combining romance and exhibitionism, unfolds to us an intriguing material reality as well as a powerful emotional world and may well be the first extended account of Chinese childhood and youth. The novel is built on our narrator’s relationships with the central women in his life: his mother; an affectionate nanny; his devoted wife by an arranged marriage; a tragic peasant girl; and above all, the girl next door and his most enduring love, known—after the instrument she plays—as Koto. Patrick Hanan’s graceful translation brings us Chen’s story at its disarming best, a popular romance that is at the same time original and distinctive in both voice and theme. First serialized in Shanghai in 1913, The Money Demon appears in English for the first time; included in an appendix is “The Koto Story,” a short epilogue to the novel.

Philosophy by Peter Cave Pdf

Philosophy, the “love of wisdom”, is the product of our endless fascination and curiosity about the world – the child of wonder. Through it, we seek to answer the most fundamental of questions: How do we know what we know? Does God exist? What is beauty? How should we live our lives? What am I? In this exhilarating tour, Peter Cave navigates all the main topics of philosophy with verve and clarity. Using witty and whimsical examples, including stoical sofas and Reg, the “regular” human, who just happens to carry his brain in a rucksack, Cave provides a welcome antidote to the dry textbook while covering everything from political philosophy to points of logic. Interspersed with helpful textboxes and underlining the enduring relevance of philosophy to us all, there is no better introduction for the aspiring sage.
