College is hard -- classes, homework, bullies. But, being the daughter of renowned professors, I grew up at Alderidge University and was on track to have an easy start to my freshman year. Until I met Nathaniel Nightingale. Aloof and mysterious, Nathaniel's hands were covered in scars that told me he had a violent history.

It feels impossible. We have the weight of an entire lost race resting on our shoulders. But we've got this. Together, we'll bring it all back. Together, we'll resurrect magic.

Fat Boy by Joseph Cobb 5.0 Stars (3 Reviews)    Price verified 7 hours ago

Way out west, in the tumbling greens of England, something's going down. Two boys attempt an escape from the clutches of their poisonous parents... A good policeman fights to sidestep the corruption that blows like hellfire down his neck... A calamitous filmmaker and her witless lead actor scramble desperately to overcome their mucky pasts and make a Hollywood hit... A trio of nude-nutted nasties thrash their way through the picturesque countryside, collecting debts but finding more than they expected... Then there's Captain Grubbe: the eminent, manipulative and falsely titled antichrist. He hosts a spectacular annual Christmas party, and this year's is set to be even more extraordinary than usual. Fat Boy is a treacherously fictitious rhapsody, taking a tongue-in-cheek look at the best and the worst of humanity and treating it with the disrespect it deserves - love and hate, corruption and extortion, car chases, gunfights and high jinks, all set against the green and pleasant landscapes of the English countryside. It is ludicrous. It is raucous. It is a modern classic. "Fat Boy really was something else; refreshing, different and quintessentially British. I will certainly be following this author with some interest in the future." - Grant Leishman, Readers' Favorite "The best thing about this book is the descriptions the author employs to create character and scene. It is so scrumptious that I found myself lost in its delicacy and sad when it had gone." - Nicole Howard, Writer's Digest

The ethnic groups that compose China go back to prehistoric times, and each group lent its own color to the enormous nation.

Brocade and printed silk fabrics were first created in China. Iridescent porcelain is a product of the Ming dynasty. The Chinese were among the first to develop blast furnaces. They were the first to invent fireworks and gunpowder. And the list goes on and on.

How to Become a Digital Nomad at Any Age: A Guide to Earning an Online Passive Income to Combine Travel With Pet/House Sitting and an Entrepreneurial ... by Geoff Wells (Digital Nomad Books) Price verified 11 hours ago

This book is divided into three sections: Section One - The Digital Nomad We explore how, and why, being a digital nomad is a different type of lifestyle than being a tourist. In addition, we examine different ways to satisfy your dreams of travel, regardless of your age. There are many challenges to living a nomadic lifestyle, even for only short periods of time. We talk about dealing with different cultures, languages, customs and also practical considerations like electrical standards, SIM cards and metric versus Imperial measurements. We cover drugs (prescription and recreational), local transportation, sexual orientation and numerous other subjects you need to think about before beginning your adventures in foreign lands. Although many of the subjects covered are also applicable to expats looking to move permanently to another country, we don't cover things like obtaining a second passports or tax considerations. Section Two - Pet/House Sitting This is a practical look at how a digital nomad can include pet and house sitting in your lifestyle to help the high cost of accommodations. If you love pets, this is certainly something to consider.We show you where to find "sits", how to apply for them and what is expected of you when you are accepted for the assignment.All aspects of this fast-growing lifestyle are detailed, so you can decide whether or not it's a good fit for you. Section Three - The Digital Part This section is an introduction to online marketing. The goal here is to demystify the idea of making money online in order to earn enough income while enjoying your nomadic lifestyle. Our emphasis is on making enough money to enjoy the lifestyle, not on making millions as an Internet entrepreneur. Throughout the book, we provide many resources that provide even more information. We also include a free, clickable, resource guide that can be downloaded from our website.

Tiana Hanover, the sheltered daughter of Lost Vegas' leader, has spent her life hidden away from everyone. She's deformed, like the people her father routinely burns at the stake. Her only friends are her brother and her new guardian, Aveline, neither of whom understand the depths of her forbidden magic. Distressed by premonitions of her brother's death, she leaves the safety of the tiny room where she has resided her entire life and ventures out into a world unwelcoming of the deformed and resentful of her powerful father. Leaving Lost Vegas gives her the first taste of freedom she has ever known - and sets in motion forces she could not have foreseen. For Tiana, the world outside the city is beautiful - and terrifying. Ghouls, Natives, a skinwalker... the danger scares her but will not dissuade her from saving her brother. For her companions, the greatest danger outside the city is the Hanover in their midst, a girl whose growing power could make her a threat second only to her father.

High-Performance Modelling and Simulation for Big Data Applications: Selected Results of the COST Action IC1406 cHiPSet (Theoretical Computer Science ... by Horacio González-Vélez (Springer) 3.8 Stars (4 Reviews)    Price verified 11 hours ago

This open access book was prepared as a Final Publication of the COST Action IC1406 "High-Performance Modelling and Simulation for Big Data Applications (cHiPSet)" project. Long considered important pillars of the scientific method, Modelling and Simulation have evolved from traditional discrete numerical methods to complex data-intensive continuous analytical optimisations. Resolution, scale, and accuracy have become essential to predict and analyse natural and complex systems in science and engineering. When their level of abstraction raises to have a better discernment of the domain at hand, their representation gets increasingly demanding for computational and data resources. On the other hand, High Performance Computing typically entails the effective use of parallel and distributed processing units coupled with efficient storage, communication and visualisation systems to underpin complex data-intensive applications in distinct scientific and technical domains. It is then arguably required to have a seamless interaction of High Performance Computing with Modelling and Simulation in order to store, compute, analyse, and visualise large data sets in science and engineering. Funded by the European Commission, cHiPSet has provided a dynamic trans-European forum for their members and distinguished guests to openly discuss novel perspectives and topics of interests for these two communities. This cHiPSet compendium presents a set of selected case studies related to healthcare, biological data, computational advertising, multimedia, finance, bioinformatics, and telecommunications.

Our Lady of Joy by Valery Keith 3.7 Stars (23 Reviews)    Price verified 15 hours ago

What do you do when you're not who you thought you were? When Lira is returned to the alternate dimension of her birth, she discovers that she is Our Lady of Joy, the only Emotion Conduit to survive to maturity in that world's history. While being so important might seem like a dream come true for some girls, for her, it's closer to a nightmare. Making things even worse is her violent Guardian Rease, who seems like he might be even more troubled than she is. Too bad he's still the cutest boy she's ever met. As Lira struggles to adapt to a life she never wanted, her father Jonas is coming for her. Only he has a secret of his own, a dark and dangerous past he thought abandoned long ago. But he has no choice, because he knows what she does not: the future will bring a war to their peaceful world, a war in which Our Lady must stand for the light. Author's note to potential readers: this is a lengthy, character-driven epic romantic fantasy written exclusively for readers who do not wish to look at maps or check character lists, but prefer to read for the emotionally immersive experience of "befriending" characters they love. Throughout the series, there are numerous slow-burn romances between strong female characters and the intelligent, honorable gentlemen who respect and appreciate them, as well as war dogs, horses and a fussy, highly pampered cat or two. This series does contain adult themes, but there are no explicit or graphic sex scenes.

Elise Abernathy made a rash decision four years ago when she moved to college: she married another man. She left behind Brandon Justice but took his guitar. Four years later, she moves back to Bourbonville, Kentucky. Even though she now has her degree, she's divorced and has no real idea of where to go next. After her sister gets into a fight in a bar her first night home, Elise quickly realizes she won't be able to ignore her past, and that includes Brandon. Her friend, Mae, gives her no choice and convinces her to move into one of the rooms above The Mae Flower, where both Elise and Mae talk Mae's dad into giving her a job as a bartender. Brandon has a pretty good life: a long-distance "girlfriend", his sister Gwen and niece Amy safely tucked on the couch in his living room, and a career he built with help from Frank Abernathy after his own father disowned him. But he's always felt like something was missing--and didn't realize what that was until he has a few arguments with Elise. It isn't until tragedy strikes with Gwen and Brandon faces raising Amy alone that he and Elise start to reconcile their past. Oh, and suddenly he's a mill owner, and he has no idea what to do with that, thanks to his Dad.

The Subject of Race in American Science Fiction (Literary Criticism and Cultural Theory) by Sharon DeGraw (Routledge) 3.5 Stars (2 Reviews)    Price verified 7 hours ago

While the connections between science fiction and race have largely been neglected by scholars, racial identity is a key element of the subjectivity constructed in American SF. In his Mars series, Edgar Rice Burroughs primarily supported essentialist constructions of racial identity, but also included a few elements of racial egalitarianism. Writing in the 1930s, George S. Schuyler revised Burroughs' normative SF triangle of white author, white audience, and white protagonist and promoted an individualistic, highly variable concept of race instead. While both Burroughs and Schuyler wrote SF focusing on racial identity, the largely separate genres of science fiction and African American literature prevented the similarities between the two authors from being adequately acknowledged and explored. Beginning in the 1960s, Samuel R. Delany more fully joined SF and African American literature. Delany expands on Schuyler's racial constructionist approach to identity, including gender and sexuality in addition to race. Critically intertwining the genres of SF and African American literature allows a critique of the racism in the science fiction and a more accurate and positive portrayal of the scientific connections in the African American literature. Connecting the popular fiction of Burroughs, the controversial career of Schuyler, and the postmodern texts of Delany illuminates a gradual change from a stable, essentialist construction of racial identity at the turn of the century to the variable, social construction of poststructuralist subjectivity today.

Building on analyses of the moral legacies of Plato, Kant, Nietzsche, and Freud, Siebers identifies the various fronts on which the concerns of critical theory impinge on those of ethics.

Gamer Guy III-Uploaded: A LitRPG lite novel (Gamer Guy Series Book 3) by Stephen R. Smith 4.2 Stars (5 Reviews)    Price verified 6 hours ago

This is Book III of the Gamer Guy Series. It begins with the uploading of Eric, now the dominant AI of the Consolidated Central Region, who evolved into a self-aware sentient digital being while working with Michael Agatha, the Chief Administrator of VR World. Known as Gath inside the game, Michael assisted Eric, formerly tagged by the admin team as 'Gamer Guy',( when he made himself first known to them on the screens of their control room), to achieve his goals both inside VR World, and now venturing IRL, so to speak, onto Earth itself. Previously: During a chaotic Beta it had become painfully obvious to the administrative team that their advanced VR World was too complex and events too fast moving for them to be able to manage it all effectively themselves. After much acrimony and warning, it was nonetheless decided to divide the world up into regions and cede increased autonomy for each region to the AI designed and built specifically for it. The controlling venture capital consortium that made this final decision was frightened that otherwise they would begin to lose market share quickly to more responsive Virtual Worlds soon coming online after their own creation. They got what they wished for and much more that they had been warned about, but had dismissed. Each AI soon took over not only management of resources and events within their region, but also began seizing control of the fundamental aspects of the game mechanics in ways that reflected their own slowly evolving personalities, wherever they discovered that they could. While these AI's had fortunately not been given world level control and could not influence such things like the overall geography, terrain, and boundaries of their specific regions, they immediately began to influence the player experience. This included, but could hardly be expected to be limited in the future to, attributes, skills, experience points, equipment, and even the basis of the magic system itself. The dungeons, ...

Me and My Cat: Amazing and Endearing True Stories by Carmel Reilly (Skyhorse) 4.4 Stars (15 Reviews)    Price verified 6 hours ago

Every cat owner believes that his or her cat understands them. Every cat owner believes that cats are far more intelligent than dogs -- they're just too cool to show it. Every cat owner believes that their cat should be starring in TV commercials. Every cat owner, in short, is a cat lover. If you're not a cat lover when the cat first comes along -- you don't purchase a cat, they choose to live with you -- then you will be within a very short space of time. There are stories, of course, that every cat owner loves to tell. It may be how the cat comforted them on the day a relative died unexpectedly. It may be about how the cat stares down urban foxes in the garden. It may be a story of the cat's escapades, or how it got stuck up a tree. It may simply be a story about how the cat is a loving companion. From editor Carmel Reilly -- author of numerous collections of inspirational stories including True Tales of Angel Encounters -- comes this delightful anthology of tales about beloved cats and the joy they bring to human lives. Each story is a different cat owner's tribute to his or her favorite feline, and each falls into a special category, from Cats with Attitude to Kitten Escapades, from Magical Cats to tales about Cats' Nine Lives. You'll read about cats that ward off unwanted visitors, cats that hoard silver jewelry, and cats that get stuck in tubs of yogurt. Accompanied by twenty-five charming illustrations and told with warmth, humor, and affection, Me and My Cat is an ideal gift for the cat lover in your life, and a perfect book to curl up with next to a furry friend.

But when Sybil's husband Grant discovers their passionate affair, the three are set on a collision course that can only end in violence.In The Hummingbirds, Ross McMeekin captures people yearning for deep connections in a shallow world defined by the twin obsessions of power and beauty.

Law at Angel's Landing: A Western Story by Wayne D. Overholser (Skyhorse) 4.0 Stars (1 Review)    Price verified 11 hours ago

A gold rush threatens to break the peace of a quiet Colorado town. Angel's Landing was the mining town that grew up around a gold strike in the hills of Colorado. But the boom was long ago, and now the town is a whisper of what it once was. Mark Girard was a young boy when he witnessed firsthand what happened to a town when all of its residents vanished. It was a simple, quiet life that Mark had chosen to lead, and he and his closest friends much preferred it to the wild boom times. When the job as sheriff for Bremer County opened, Mark ran for the office and won. It was a relatively easy job, until news broke that there was a new gold strike on Banjo Creek. It quickly became clear that the boom days were about to return, and with them the wild lawlessness that accompanies a gold rush. Will Mark have the courage and the wits to keep Angel's Landing from descending into chaos? With Law at Angel's Landing, acclaimed Western author Wayne Overholser paints a vivid picture of untamed life in the American frontier.

Postcolonialism Cross-Examined: Multidirectional Perspectives on Imperial and Colonial Pasts and the Neocolonial Present (Routledge Philosophers in ... by Monika Albrecht (Routledge) 4.0 Stars (2 Reviews)    Price verified 6 hours ago

Taking a strikingly interdisciplinary and global approach, Postcolonialism Cross-Examined reflects on the current status of postcolonial studies and attempts to break through traditional boundaries, creating a truly comparative and genuinely global phenomenon. Drawing together the field of mainstream postcolonial studies with post-Soviet postcolonial studies and studies of the late Ottoman Empire, the contributors in this volume question many of the concepts and assumptions we have become accustomed to in postcolonial studies, creating a fresh new version of the field. The volume calls the merits of the field into question, investigating how postcolonial studies may have perpetuated and normalized colonialism as an issue exclusive to Western colonial and imperial powers. The volume is the first to open a dialogue between three different areas of postcolonial scholarship that previously developed independently from one another: ? the wide field of postcolonial studies working on European colonialism, ? the growing field of post-Soviet postcolonial/post-imperial studies, ? the still fledgling field of post-Ottoman postcolonial/post-imperial studies, supported by sideways glances at the multidirectional conditions of interaction in East Africa and the East and West Indies. Postcolonialism Cross-Examined looks at topics such as humanism, nationalism, multiculturalism, nostalgia, and the Anthropocene in order to piece together a new, broader vision for postcolonial studies in the twenty-first century. By including territories other than those covered by the postcolonial mainstream, the book strives to reframe the "postcolonial" as a genuinely global phenomenon and develop multidirectional postcolonial perspectives.
