Robots Like Blue by Anthony J. Deeney 4.4 Stars (92 Reviews)    Price verified 24 minutes ago

Robot, Robbie's primary function is to serve Lucy Walker, but a growing desire to be truly free is hard to ignore. Will his need for freedom cost him too much? When first asked, "Robot, are you self aware?... Do you think that we are self aware?" Robot thought briefly, then responded, "Does it matter?" However, a growing feeling of unease convinces him that it does. Robbie is just one of one hundred new robots. Running revolutionary new software, these robots are truly unique.

Political Justice (A Marc Kadella Legal Mystery Book 7) by Dennis Carstens 4.5 Stars (321 Reviews)    Price verified one minute ago

THE MACBETHS TAKE WASHINGTON -- and leave a pile of bodies in their wake. In searing political commentary laced with a gripping murder mystery that hits disturbingly close to home, Dennis Carstens tackles financial misconduct, scandalous cover-up, treason, and murder in the 7th installment of the Marc Kadella legal thriller series -- a scathing imagining of an American White House nobody's ever seen before, and yet one that is all too familiar... "A shot in the dark, right in the gut, that's what Carstens is good at... Carstens aims to be realistic about the law and its enforcers, and he hits it right... The plot is as full of surprises as a Minneapolis Jucy Lucy and ultimately just as satisfying." -Tony Dunbar, Anthony- and Edgar-nominated author of the Tubby Dubonnet legal thriller series. It's four days after the latest presidential election, and Marc Kadella has the post-election blues. Sure, his guy didn't win, but there's more to it than that: the defeated incumbent was a ...

The Golden Bough: A Study of Magic and Religion by James George Frazer (e-artnow) 3.8 Stars (15 Reviews)    Price verified 2 hours ago

The Golden Bough is a wide-ranging, comparative study of mythology and religion, written by the Scottish anthropologist Sir James George Frazer. The book documents and details the similarities among magical and religious beliefs around the globe. Frazer attempted to define the shared elements of religious belief and scientific thought, discussing fertility rites, human sacrifice, the dying god, the scapegoat, and many other symbols and practices whose influences had extended into 20th-century culture. His thesis is that old religions were fertility cults that revolved around the worship and periodic sacrifice of a sacred king. Frazer proposed that mankind progresses from magic through religious belief to scientific thought. The influence of The Golden Bough on contemporary European literature and thought is substantial.
