Nevernight is the first in an epic new fantasy series from the New York Times bestselling author, Jay Kristoff. In a land where three suns almost never set, a fledgling killer joins a school of assassins, seeking vengeance against the powers who destroyed her family. Daughter of an executed traitor, Mia Corvere is barely able to escape her father’s failed rebellion with her life. Alone and friendless, she hides in a city built from the bones of a dead god, hunted by the Senate and her father’s former comrades. But her gift for speaking with the shadows leads her to the door of a retired killer, and a future she never imagined. Now, a sixteen year old Mia is apprenticed to the deadliest flock of assassins in the entire Republic — the Red Church. Treachery and trials await her with the Church’s halls, and to fail is to die. But if she survives to initiation, Mia will be inducted among the chosen of the Lady of Blessed Murder, and one step closer to the only thing she desires. Revenge.

Leading and emerging, early career scholars in Classical Reception Studies come together in this volume to explore the under-represented area of the Australasian Classical Tradition. They interrogate the interactions between Mediterranean Antiquity and the antipodean worlds of New Zealand and Australia through the lenses of literature, film, theatre and fine art. Of interest to scholars across the globe who research the influence of antiquity on modern literature, film, theatre and fine art, this volume fills a decisive gap in the literature by bringing antipodean research into the spotlight. Following a contextual introduction to the field, the six parts of the volume explore the latest research on subjects that range from the Lord of the Rings and Xena: Warrior Princess franchises to important artists such as Sidney Nolan and local authors whose work offers opportunities for cross-cultural and interdisciplinary analysis with well-known Western authors and artists.

Smiley Man Chronicles

"Smiley-Man Chronicles" is the true story and reminiscences of Michael Mulholland, Tahni Jones, Eddy Boros, Kevin Donnelly, the Lefty Jones Band, Edwardo, Pancho Rosie, et al. Technically your author has been more of an archivist and editor than story-teller. He has also tried to hold the price down on this volume so that it will not cost you too much--either spiritually or financially. It reads easily in order, or out, and is about going to the moon, literally & figuratively. Though parts are fiction, the chronicles are largely non-fiction, and they are dedicated to both Nathan Harris, who gave your author everything, and Tahni Jones, who told his sister Georgi shortly before he died that he had been "playing life by ear." Reviews: "Essential reading...a tour de force!" --Stewart Allen, author "The Devil's Cup, In the Devil's Garden" "I couldn't have written a better book without dropping out of school...." --Saul Fisher, Ph.D. "Thank God for The Lefty Jones Band...long live the "Smiley-Man Chronicles.".." --Andy Malm, Drummer, Lefty Jones Band "This book is serious fun, thoughtful, and revolutionary." --Nina Feldman, President, Sweet Bella. "Totally original...ground-breaking." --Walter White, Bassist, Lefty Jones Band. "Unmarketable and brilliant." --Errol McDonald, Editor, Random House.

Science entwines with matters of the human heart as a whale researcher chronicles the lives of an endangered family of orcas Ever since Eva Saulitis began her whale research in Alaska in the 1980s, she has been drawn deeply into the lives of a single extended family of endangered orcas struggling to survive in Prince William Sound. Over the course of a decades-long career spent observing and studying these whales, and eventually coming to know them as individuals, she has, sadly, witnessed the devastation wrought by the Exxon Valdez oil spill of 1989—after which not a single calf has been born to the group. With the intellectual rigor of a scientist and the heart of a poet, Saulitis gives voice to these vital yet vanishing survivors and the place they are so loyal to. Both an elegy for one orca family and a celebration of the entire species, Into Great Silence is a moving portrait of the interconnectedness of humans with animals and place—and of the responsibility we have to protect them.
