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

Ascend the Depth by Akbar Jaffari Ph.D. Pdf

All the way through his life journey, Akbar Jaffari intensely suffered from anxiety and agony. Although he was progressing through external life, his inner life remained torturous—until the day he asked himself why he was still unhappy and restless. As he set down a new path to awakening, he studied hundreds of religions and sciences and attended over eight hundred classes, seminars, and ashrams within diversified cultures. As a result of his successful quest to seek and embrace bliss, he decided to document his teachings and present it to all those seeking the truth . In a holistic guide to living in peace and harmony, Jaffari travels through eight thousand years of lost directions and instructions to provide realistic, practical approaches to returning to the true self, reconnecting with divine forces, and allowing the universe to manifest its purposes. Through his insights and wisdom, Jaffari details the journey to first seek purpose and then understand the birth of ego, the irrationality of the mind, workplace challenges, the identification of ego-based needs, the difference between being and doing, the madness of the world, and much more. Ascend the Depth: Righteous Rise guides those in search of the true self to dissolve their contaminated memories, unwrap conditioned perceptions, release the ego, and ultimately discover happiness.

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.

A Guide to Piano Music by Women Composers by Pamela Y. Dees Pdf

Designed as a practical reference guide for professional pianists and piano teachers, A Guide to Piano Music by Women Composers, Volume I, is an annotated catalogue of the available piano music in print composed by 144 women born before the 20th century. The work also features biographies and extensive bibliographical information for each composer. Arranged alphabetically by composer into categories including single works, collections, and anthologies, the music is also described in terms of grade level, genre, mood, style characteristics, and technical requirements, and ranges in difficulty from late elementary to virtuoso concert repertoire. Far too many teachers, students, professional musicians, and audiences are unaware of the contributions made by women in music, and of the beauty and merit of their specific compositions. This reference work provides an invaluable addition to the current literature.

Translation, Adaptation and Transformation by Laurence Raw Pdf

In recent years adaptation studies has established itself as a discipline in its own right, separate from translation studies. The bulk of its activity to date has been restricted to literature and film departments, focussing on questions of textual transfer and adaptation of text to film. It is however, much more interdisciplinary, and is not simply a case of transferring content from one medium to another. This collection furthers the research into exactly what the act of adaptation involves and whether it differs from other acts of textual rewriting. In addition, the 'cultural turn' in translation studies has prompted many scholars to consider adaptation as a form of inter-semiotic translation. But what does this mean, and how can we best theorize it? What are the semiotic systems that underlie translation and adaptation? Containing theoretical chapters and personal accounts of actual adaptions and translations, this is an original contribution to translation and adaptation studies which will appeal to researchers and graduate students.
