“Riveting! Daly plunges straight into the heart of every parent’s worst nightmare with page-turning results.” —Lisa Gardner, #1 New York Times–bestselling author Lisa Kallisto—overwhelmed working mother—is the not-so-perfect model of the modern woman. She holds down a busy job running an animal shelter, she cares for three demanding children, and she worries that her marriage isn’t getting enough attention. During an impossibly hectic week, Lisa takes her eye off the ball for a moment and her world descends into a living nightmare. Not only is her best friend’s thirteen-year-old daughter missing, but it’s Lisa’s fault. To make matters worse, Lucinda is the second teenage girl to disappear within the past two weeks. The first one turned up stripped bare and abandoned on the main street after a horrible ordeal. Wracked with guilt over her mistake, and after having been publicly blamed by Lucinda’s family, Lisa sets out to right the wrong. As she begins digging under the surface, Lisa learns that everything is not quite what it first appears to be. “This intriguing blend of suspense tale and domestic drama, which has a number of delicious plot twists, will keep readers riveted . . . First-rate fiction from an outstanding new thriller writer.” —Booklist, starred review

The focus of this issue, being always conceived of with its usual and overall emphasis on Nonduality and Universality, falls upon the sacred traditions of Jainism, Tibetan Buddhism, Tantra, and Vedanta, with tidbits of all the other religions of the world present and included in revolving fashion. As a mention and an invitation, the Nectar staff asks for writers associated with Taoism, Zoroastrianism, American Indian, and Western Philosophy to submit articles on their respective faiths and ideologies. It seems that in our eight-year history of producing and distributing a religious and philosophical publication, it has been hardest for us to find authors and practitioners from these four paths to contribute to the journal. If you profess these paths, or know anyone who does who is capable of writing an article to share, please get in touch with us at your earliest convenience. We welcome to the present issue of Nectar a follow-up article on Jainism, a radio interview from the 1970s by Lex Hixon on “Divine Mother Transmission,” an article in the Tibetan Buddhist tradition on destroying delusion by the honorable Anam Thubten Rinpoche, and another article by D.S. Lokanath out of Portland, Oregon. Additionally, we are very gratified to see another of our guru’s articles in print, transcribed from a host of programs I myself recorded at the Vedanta Society of Oregon when he was still alive. In tandem with his discourse, I have offered a fresh article called “The Illusion of Change,” designed to complement the nondual message so expertly put forth by him. May the guru be pleased!

This is an excellent book for people who are tired and fed up with what they see happening to their country. Whether it's failing schools, a failing federal government, a failing economy, huge debt, and massive unemployment, you'll want to read this book. Hollywood is a cesspool, likened to Soddom and Gomorrah, RAP music offends almost everyone, and is full of degrading lyrics; the whole alternative energy push by this President is a scam; man-made global warming is another big scam, and Al Gore is making tens of millions of dollars from it. What's all this stuff about diversity being good for America? Show me. You want alternative energy to replace oil? It'll be here in about 25 years; get over it. Our federal government is broken, out of control, and arrogant, and unable to effectively govern. We should toss them all out and start over, using the Constitution as the standard for office. It's all in here, and it is most assuredly politically incorrect. The author does not subscribe to Cultural Marxism from which politically correct evolved. If you are easily offended, don't read this book because if you're offended, it's your problem, not his. This is volume 1 in what the author believes will be a 3-volume set, and he goes after all of the bad people, bad groups, and bad ideas.

There is no one quite like your mother - but along with the unconditional love and understanding, this also means that there is no one else who always knows when you're fibbing, or where you keep your diary, or the terribly amusing thing you once said at a family wedding when you were five. In an affectionate, amusing and mischievous book, Judith Holder's tribute to motherhood covers everything from mothers through the ages (it's not only the Virgin Mary who we wish had had an immaculate conception) to maternal anxiety and those little things she says and why she says them: 'You're not going out like that', 'What are you doing inside on a lovely day like today?', and the classic 'because I said so.' Using interviews and testimonies from mothers and daughters of all ages, this is a humorous look at motherhood and everything that goes with it, with beautifully illustrated and funny line drawings integrated into the text.

The past decade has seen the medium of comics reach unprecedented heights of critical acclaim and commercial success. Comics & Media reflects that, bringing together an amazing array of contributors--creators and critics alike--to discuss the state, future, and potential of the medium. Loaded with full-color reproductions of work by such legends as R. Crumb, Art Spiegelman, Alison Bechdel, Chris Ware, Daniel Clowes, and Lynda Barry, the book addresses the place of comics in both a contemporary and historical context. Essays by such high-profile figures as Tom Gunning, N. Katherine Hayles, Patrick Jagoda, and W. J. T. Mitchell address a stunning range of topics, including the place of comics in the history of aesthetics, changes to popular art forms, digital humanities, and ongoing tensions between new and old media. The result is a substantial step forward for our understanding of what comics are and can be, and the growing place they hold in our culture.

A History Of The African American People Proposed By Strom Thurmond As Told To Percival Everett James Kincaid A Novel

Praise for Percival Everett: “If Percival Everett isn’t already a household name, it’s because people are more interested in politics than truth.”—Madison Smartt Bell, author of The Washington Square Ensemble “Everett’s talent is multifaceted, sparked by a satiric brilliance that could place him alongside Richard Wright and Ralph Ellison . . .”—Publishers Weekly “I think Percival Everett is a genius. I’ve been a fan since his first novel. He continues to amaze me with each novel—as if he likes making 90-degree turns to see what’s around the corner, and then over the edge . . . He’s a brilliant writer and so damn smart I envy him.”—Terry McMillan, author of Mama A fictitious and satirical chronicle of South Carolina Senator Strom Thurmond’s desire to pen a history of African-Americans—his and his aides’ belief being that he has done as much, or more, than any American to shape that history. An epistolary novel, The History follows the letters of loose cannon Congressional office workers, insane interns at a large New York publishing house and disturbed publishing executives, along with homicidal rival editors, kindly family friends, and an aspiring author named Septic. Strom Thurmond appears charming and open, mad and sure of his place in American history. Percival Everett is the author of 15 works of fiction, among them Glyph, Watershed and Frenzy. His most recent novel, Erasure, won the Hurston/Wright Legacy Award and did little to earn him friends. James Kincaid is an English professor at the University of Southern California and has written seven books in literary theory and cultural studies. These books and Kincaid himself have gradually lost their moorings in the academic world, so there was nothing left for him to do but to adopt the guise of fiction writer. Writing about madness comes easy to him.

Like philosophy itself, How I Met Your Mother has everyone thinking. How does a successful show that's been on the air for years suddenly become a hit in its fifth and sixth season? Have you ever wondered why you identify so strongly with Barney despite the fact that he’s such a douche? Or why your life story doesn’t make sense until you know the ending—or at least, the middle? Or where the Bro Code came from and why it’s so powerful? Or why you’d sooner miss the hottest date in your life than have to live in New Jersey? Of course you have, or if you haven’t, you’ll clearly remember from now on that you have. How I Met Your Mother and Philosophy answers all these questions and a whole lot more, including one or two that even you may not have thought of. Twenty of the awesome-est philosophers ever congregated in one bar have come together to quaff a few drinks—and to analyze this most awesomely philosophical of sit-coms. They poke, prod, and sniff at such momentous matters as the metaphysics of possimpible worlds, the misdeeds of Goliath National Bank, the ontology of waiting to get slapped, the epistemology of sexual attraction, why the Platinum Rule is to never love thy neighbor, the authenticity of censoring yourself, the ethics of doing bad things with partly good intentions, why future Ted’s opinions matter to present-day Ted, whether it’s irrational to wait for the Slutty Pumpkin, and why Canadians have that strange Canadian slant on things. This book shows that viewers of How I Met Your Mother and Philosophy know that philosophy is much more than a song and dance routine.
