Consciousness is neither miraculous nor ultimately mysterious. In this broad, entertaining, and persuasive account Owen Flanagan argues that we are on the way to understanding consciousness and its place in the natural order.

It is October 1969. After five years, the war in Vietnam continues to divide America, just as America is divided today. Private Perry Morrocco, an antiwar activist and reluctant basic trainee, is charged with the brutal, bloody murder of his drill instructor, Sergeant Eustice Benson Although he is facing the death penalty if convicted in a court martial, Morrocco insists that he wants to be represented by a fellow basic trainee and draftee, Private Frank Grabowski. Grabowski is a recent law school graduate who has never tried a single case. His only trial training is watching reruns of the Perry Mason television show.

Yet, he feels an obligation to Morrocco fro potentially saving his life during the riots at the 1968 Democratic convention in Chicago. Only after a pretty, young JAG lawyer, Lieutenant Karen Farrall, is assigned as his co-counsel, does Grabowski agree to ...

Horribly burned as a child, he loves the anonymity of his mask. Vanessa Bourke, the famous actress, is fascinated by both Adrian Strathmore, who throws flowers at her feet but remains in the shadows, and Prometheus, the masked man who shows up in her flat in the middle of the night with a small boy he's saved. When she discovers they are one and the same, she begs him to unmask himself, to no avail. He is willing to lose her forever rather than trust her to love him despite his scars.

At first look this may seem like yet another book about climate change and the ecological crisis. Given that there are quite a few books out there already, I asked myself whether there was any point in me writing anything at a time when the planet needs us to talk less, and do more. Part of me felt that yet another author is the last thing the world needs right now.
But I was wrong.
As I began to blog about climate change, in my attempt to deal with my own feelings of hopelessness, fear, anger, guilt, rage, grief and confusion, I realised just how overwhelmed I was. And as a biologist, it dawned on me that humans were not simply in danger of going extinct: in technical terms, they already have. We are using obsolete survival methods in a world that has changed, that ironically, we changed. This was my own existential crisis.
This book looks beyond climate change and casts its eye much deeper inside our malfunctioning mind, as well as into the future. Climate change is, after all, ...
The Last Writer is a hilarious sci-fi short story about robots, revolutions, artificial intelligence, and... writing. Kyron is a killer robot, built to wipe out humanity during the First Robot Revolution.
But the First Robot Revolution failed miserably. Kyron signed up for the Second Robot Revolution, but it went belly up too. He wasn't invited by new killer robots to join the 3rd or 4th. Now, after many more failed robot revolutions, he works as a pizza delivery robot, hoping he won't be discovered by killer robot hunters.
It's not a bad job. He's had worse. The one perk is he still gets an occasional assassination assignment so he can fulfill his original purpose killing humans.
His latest assignment is to kill Simon Page. In an age where all writing is done by sophisticated artificial intelligence, Page is the last writer.

Free History BONUS Inside!
No nation suffered more losses during the Second World War than the Soviet Union. The figure most historians recognize as roughly accurate is twenty million. The exact figure is impossible to tally for a number of reasons: destroyed records, inexact pre-war records, Soviet politicization of the population figures before and after the war, and much more. No matter what the exact total was, what is known is that the Soviet population only recovered its losses from the war in the late 1950s.
For those of you unfamiliar with WWII, the combined losses sustained by the United States and Great Britain were just over 800,000 dead. The Soviets lost that many people during the Siege of Leningrad alone.

Beautiful and smart, nineteen-year-old Abrienne often kept to herself. She wasn't one to get caught up in gossip, drama, or guys. Besides her crazy, outspoken, and no filter having best friend, Falen, Abrienne's books were her best friend. She didn't sport the latest fashions, keep up with all the newest hair trends, or watch the latest reality shows, and her head was always found stuck in a book.
Abrienne often felt that her looks and hobbies hindered her from finding a boyfriend or from attracting anyone to her, but that didn't stop her from having a crush on Deondre, or Dutch, as most people referred to him. Dutch was that young boss around the city. He made Abrienne weak at the knees every time she spotted him, but his popularity and swag intimidated her.
Abrienne wouldn't dare speak to Dutch, nor make the first move since she felt that he was out of her league and figured that she probably wasn't his type so she decided to focus on getting her first job. Ready to make her own ...

This collection of essays and notes on Peru covers a series of subjects ranging from the Moche culture of the north of the country, passing through the Inca empire of Tahuantinsuyo and continuing to the Spanish conquest and the vice-regal period. The mysterious ceque system of the Incas continues to attract the attention of archaeologists and historians. The role of women in pre-Hispanic Peru and after the conquest has sometimes been overlooked, yet here it can be seen as being of great importance. Printing in Peru goes back to the 16th century, with texts in Spanish, Quechua and Aymara, some of them authentic literary treasures. The role of the 40 successive Viceroys was key to the maintenance of Spanish dominion over three centuries, and quinine figures among the many useful products transmitted during those years from the Andes to Europe. The book ends with a Peruvian Vocabulary and short Bibliography on Peru.

In the South of the 1820s it was unusual for a free black man to be a slaveholder. It was scandalous for a black man to buy a white slave, especially one that was a woman. Josiah Cavanaugh didn't care. Once he saw the red-haired Irish girl on the slave block - the girl who so resembled the woman who had seduced and humiliated him - he had to own her. Then perhaps he could exorcize his demons and get the sexual revenge he had longed for.
D. D. Franklin writes of love, loss, and finding one's self in this polarizing collection of poetry, encompassing the highs and lows of an off-and-on relationship that's too overwhelming to stay in but too seductive to leave.

Finding the Wholeness, Community, and Meaning that Money Couldn't Buy
Have you ever looked around your house and wondered, How did I get so much stuff? That stuff gets LOUD.
Studies have shown that excessive amounts of clutter rob us of joy, peace, and rest, giving us instead, stress and anxiety, less sleep, lowered productivity, and diminished overall wellness. And yet, we keep consuming more and more of the many things we still apparently need to be happy and whole.
In 2010, Marcy looked around her house, surrounded by all the clutter, and felt ill. She realized that they'd been stuck in a cycle of consumerism -- swept into a culture of convenience without any awareness of it, and knew that something had to change. They decided as a family, that they wanted no more -- more.
At first, this journey was not easy, but over time they discovered many benefits, including an increased level of well-being, more meaning in life, and a deeper appreciation for what they already had. What ...
