If a machine could predict how you would die, would you want to know? This is the tantalizing premise of This Is How You Die, the brilliant follow-up anthology to the self-published bestseller, Machine of Death. THIS IS HOW YOU DIE Stories of the Inscrutable, Infallible, Inescapable Machine of Death The machines started popping up around the world. The offer was tempting: with a simple blood test, anyone could know how they would die. But the machines didn't give dates or specific circumstances-just a single word or phrase. DROWNED, CANCER, OLD AGE, CHOKED ON A HANDFUL OF POPCORN. And though the predictions were always accurate, they were also often frustratingly vague. OLD AGE, it turned out, could mean either dying of natural causes, or being shot by an elderly, bedridden man in a botched home invasion. The machines held onto that old-world sense of irony in death: you can know how it's going to happen, but you'll still be surprised when it does. This addictive anthology--sinister, witty, existential, and fascinating--collects the best of the thousands of story submissions the editors received in the wake of the success of the first volume, and exceeds the first in every way.

Jac Conradie se intreerede as professor aan die Universiteit van Johannesburg het as titel ?Die tand van die tyd? gehad. Die bydraes in hierdie bundel weerspie‰l iets van Jac se veelsydigheid en van sy impak op die akademie. Bydraes uit Europa, Noord-Amerika en Afrika deur taalkundiges, letterkundiges en historici getuig van die respek wat Jac oor ?n wye akademiese front afdwing. As die huldiging van ?n loopbaan, van ?n wetenskaplike, maar ook van ?n wellewende mens, kan hierdie bundel nie genoegsaam wees nie, maar dit is ?n aanduiding van die waardering en ho‰ agting wat akademici die wˆreld oor vir Jac het

See Hemis and Die is a collection of stories about men and women going through experiences and emotions in exotic locations or strange situations and how they come to terms with them. A wild vet handling a cyber admirer and fe ral dogs in Ladakh, a woman’s death teaching the family why she loved her dog, or an Everester’s experiences of grief in the Rainbow Valley. There are animals, animal lovers, scientists, wildlife experts, filmmakers, air force pilots, and doctors, bringing home the point that we are all the same. There are no dramatic solutions, only acceptance and realizations, letting go of failures, sometimes for the better, sometimes as a sacrifice, and sometimes for peace.

"Positively tailor-made for reading—or reading aloud—by flashlight," declares Kirkus Reviews in a starred review. The phenomenally versatile, award-winning author Candace Fleming gives teen and older tween readers ten ghost stories sure to send chills up their spines. Set in White Cemetery, an actual graveyard outside Chicago, each story takes place during a different time period from the 1860s to the present, and ends with the narrator's death. Some teens die heroically, others ironically, but all due to supernatural causes. Readers will meet walking corpses and witness demonic posession, all against the backdrop of Chicago's rich history—the Great Depression, the World's Fair, Al Capone and his fellow gangsters.

What happens to wives when husbands die? The quick answer is widowhood. The deeper truth is they are forced into a life change that has serious ramifications for themselves, their families, their friends and their futures. Are poems and songs written about widow-heroes, does literature extol their strength and courage, their independence gained, their new lives discovered? Hardly. But women have important stories to tell about this time in their lives when they come face to face with one of the most common and devastating life experiences for women everywhere. Seventy-nine story tellers have joined together to tell about the tragic time that begins when, in an instant, the husband dies, the man, the lover, the companion, the mate is gone--and so is the marriage! SHIRLEY REESER McNALLY, the originator of this project, is a graduate of Smith College as are Barbara Harrison Mulhern, Mary Witt Wydman and the majority of women whose stories are told in this book. Because Smith is a liberal arts college for women, it seemed logical to McNally that the alumnae of Smith would be a source and an audience for a study of widows. It has turned out to be so. “The work,” she says, “has been arduous, fascinating and redemptive.” The result is intended for current widows who can learn how others are handling the difficult situation forced upon them, and for women still married who, with their spouses, must plan for what well might occur in their futures.
