A handsome young man arrives in St Petersburg at the house of Marya Morevna. He is Koschei, the Tsar of Life, and he is Marya's fate. For years she follows him in love and in war, and bears the scars. But eventually Marya returns to her birthplace - only to discover a starveling city, haunted by death. Deathless is a fierce story of life and death, love and power, old memories, deep myth and dark magic, set against the history of Russia in the twentieth century. It is, quite simply, unforgettable.

She's more than 3,000 years old. Her grandfather was the patriarch Jacob. She's mentioned by name three times in the Hebrew Bible, but there are no stories told about her. She knew Moses and David, Spinoza and Einstein--and now, at long last, Serach bat Asher has written her autobiography. "I was born in a tent," Serach tells us, a woman long silenced by history. She is feisty, funny, and bitter. The stories she tells about what really happened to her and her family will make you laugh and cry and maybe even rage against her, the oldest woman in the world, now living two blocks from the beach in Los Angeles.

“You were warned,” Bulat said to Ivan, “that if you redeemed me, your wife would
be carried off by Koschei the Deathless.” “But, Bulat,” Ivan said, “that was years
ago! And I had no wife at the time I redeemed you!” “Koschei the Deathless is not

As if Ring Day weren't enough to make Buffy Summers anxious (she can't even afford one of the less expensive silver bands), the Slayer has her hands full trying to figure out why an average split-level house in Sunnydale has all the vampires spooked. When she arrives at the library to discuss this new development with Giles, a package he's received from an old folklorist in Russia reveals what's going on: The stars are properly aligned for an attempt to resurrect Koschei the Deathless, a long-dead evil sorcerer. So while her classmates are busy choosing rings to demonstrate their school spirit, Buffy must figure out how to keep someone from reviving Koschei and, should she need to resort to plan B, how to kill him again. A little investigating soon leads Buffy and the gang to the necromancer who originally killed the sorcerer, an immortal Russian sorceress named Yulia Dryanushkina, who can control vampires (which explains their reluctance to pass by her place of residence). When the crew pays Yulia a visit, she assures them that with Willow's assistance, she would be able to kill the sorcerer again should he be revived. Neither Buffy nor Willow are particularly comfortable with aligning themselves with the necromancer, but they have no other choice when, twenty-four hours later, the vampires start behaving strangely . . . and half the senior class goes missing.

BOOK SUMMARY Plans of the Deathless Gods. The time: the seven years (1785-1792) before the breakup of European order instigated by the French Revolution. The scene: Prussia, South Africa, New Zealand. The characters: Curt Christoph von Allmen, who proposes the plan of a New Zealand sealing station as medium of commerce with China; his twin sister Maria, who composes an epic poem to commemorate its founding; their friend, philosopher Adam Sixtus l’Estrange, whose ruminations on the times issue in a surprising discovery. The plot: Curt Christoph, a philhellene, envisions New Zealand as the scene of a restored Apollonianism—which his sister’s epic playfully portrays, and Adam Sixtus’ philosophical discovery ironically supports.

This is English-Translated Verse Version of best selected poems of Sir Rabindranath Tagore, Nobel Laureate-1913 on Death and beyond death. Seventy Two specially selected poems on the subject of "Death" and 'after Life' issues, have been publised deviding them in 12 Chapters, which deals with from the pains-losses-sufferings and pathetic memories of the diseased person, near and dear, lover and beloved, and gradually taking readers to higher platform of thoughts and realization of Creative process, the Creator's designs, transformation of forms and energy, keeping total aggregate same and unchanged, nothing is lost in the Universe of the Supreme creator and sustainer of this created systems and entities, believes in liberation [a Buddhist and also a Hindu thought], belief in Re-birth [mainly a Hindu belief, concept of final solace in faithful surrender of all matters to His pleasure, and at His feet, some theosophical belief of non-perishability of Soul [Aatma], argued by the Upanisads to Geeta, Tagore's own experience of seeing himself outside his own physical existence {Poem No.58}, one resurrection experience as narrated by him in Poem No. 57, and at the last phase of his life, he totally denied death as the ends of the Entities [vide poems no. 54 to 62] a final conviction that the Creator, processed out after 1750 Crores of years after the Big Bang, giving Humans, the only creature to enter into perusal and de-codification of His Universe, it's creative process, tried to understand their Creator. He believed that it shall be, and in fact even in current days] it is His great pleasure that some of His off-springs have understood Him, a father or a mother [who brought any child on Earth] want the first great pleasure when they see that their off-springs first distinctly identify their parents and call them "father" or " mother" as the case may be. Such is the relation of mankind with the Universal Creative Process or the Supreme One, whom we identify a Creator, in various manner and may be in a very wrong manners [ as ordinary persons have no greater brain power to conceive any thing beyond an Anthropometric God. Tagore's God is always approaching to make Him fully revealed and mingle with His creation [the mankind] for His own pleasure, out of His own love for them. And similarly, the mankind is the only product of God, who had been trying utmost to discover who is that ONE, so mankind is also in a march to meet and mingle with their Creator. This mutual love-relation is reflected in Tagore's poems vide ]specially Poem No. 51 to 56 [ Chapter-11: Re-Union]...The Great Qualities of expressing his thoughts will definitely be enchanting and appealing to swollen-up souls, who are going to meet death of himself or of his near and dear one, inevitable. Death being a must event of our birth, and how a great visionary like Tagore, who wrote 217 books, of original thoughts, 52 books of Poems only, during his writing period from age 16 to the last day in 1941, [His last poem of life is given in Serial No. 9 of this collection. Please do not forget to pay final Salutation to the God, the Creator [See as Tagore did in his Poem at Serial No. 54 and also a Last Salutation to this Mother Earth on whose lap with got birth, played our life-game, and this mother supplied every thing we need to enjoy and sustain our life here; and see how Tagore paid this last Salutation to mother Earth vide very long Poem at Serial No. 3. The English Verse version is first tried by this translator, as Tagore [36 songs ?] and others less than 50 songs, all did in prose, to convey the summary-meaning of the poems; but this is the first effort to make exact presentation of his expression, by Word-to-Word & Line-to-Line translation in poetic verse form . Hope this carefully selected poems on Deaths and beyond, titled "The Death and The Deathless' be 'THE SOLACE OF OUR LIFE AND THE SOLACE OF OUR DEATHS'.
