Bundle Of Evil. . . The old Victorian home stands at the top of a hill overlooking Martha's Vineyard, nestled in a forest of green pines and a rainbow of wildflowers, just a stone's throw away from the beach. It was Jan Hostetter's dream to convert the three-story house into a bed and breakfast, but she gladly surrenders that dream when a miracle occurs: she becomes pregnant. For years, doctors told Jan she was incapable of conceiving, but now she and her husband have been doubly blessed with a child on the way and the perfect place to raise a family. Annie Wojtoko is in Martha's Vineyard to help out and share in Jan's happiness, but as the due date draws nearer, Annie's concern for her best friend grows. The pregnancy has left Jan frail and without an appetite. She has become superstitious, covering every mirror in her home, and refusing to leave under any circumstances, fearing her baby will die if she does. And as Annie learns the violent history of the house, she comes to realize that what is growing in Jan's body isn't a miracle at all--but a mother's most terrifying nightmare. . . "Sharp and smart, impossible to put down, The Unwelcome Child is a genuine chiller of a ghost story."--Tamara Thorne

Asa Lundgren explores Turkish policy towards northern Iraq from the beginning of the 1990s to the US-led invasion of Iraq in 2003 and draws important conclusions about the relation between nation-building and foreign policy. The author argues that there is a crucial interplay between the protection of state borders, foreign policy practice and the construction of national identity. Turkey’s policy towards northern Iraq during the last decade can be described as a balancing act where the integrity of the Turkish-Iraqi border was firmly defended by Ankara, while at the same time it was consistently violated through Turkish military incursions against a perceived Kurdish threat and by the permanent military presence of the Turkish army on Iraqi territory. The author’s highly original proposition is that Ankara’s policy opposition to all attempts to break up Iraq along ethnic lines was a mirror image of an almost obession-like concern with the unity of the Turkish nation state.

Tourette syndrome is a very misunderstood disorder. It is often said to have a mind of its own. A number of excellent books have been written by healthcare professionals and by people with TS. Most are either professional observations or personal stories about brave souls who have overcome enormous odds to succeed in spite of this often debilitating disorder. This book is different. It does include a bit of autobiographical information and it provides a comprehensive view of Tourette syndrome. However, its main focus is on the mental and physical processes that occur inside a person during tics and other symptoms. This book likely provides the deepest view inside the “mind of Tourette syndrome” ever published. The author, who has TS, presents an unsurpassed inside view of tics, obsessions, compulsions, intrusive thoughts, and feelings brought on by societal reaction. The book is totally honest from start to finish. It does not sugarcoat anything, it is not a “feel good” book and it exposes the most troubling experiences associated with this disorder. However, it also supports the reality that most people with Tourette syndrome are incredibly strong individuals who end up doing quite well in life. In addition, a link to an online version of the author’s documentary movie Inside Tourette Syndrome is provided. It features five adults with Tourette syndrome and it contains vivid details about what it is like to experience tics and obsessive-compulsive symptoms. No two individuals experience Tourette syndrome exactly the same. The author does not claim to speak for anyone other than himself. However, there are often similar, rarely-discussed experiences by people with TS and others with the disorder have agreed that this author’s descriptions are stunningly accurate. For those desiring to get a good idea of how it feels to experience the tics and other symptoms of Tourette syndrome, this book is a "must read." In addition, with the bonus of the included free online access to the documentary movie, this offering is a true bargain for anyone wishing to learn about Tourette syndrome.

Reckonings

A single word—"Auschwitz"—is often used to encapsulate the totality of persecution and suffering involved in what we call the Holocaust. Yet a focus on a single concentration camp - however horrific, however massively catastrophic its scale - leaves an incomplete story, a truncated history. It cannot fully communicate the myriad ways in which individuals became tangled up on the side of the perpetrators, and obscures the diversity of experiences among a wide range of victims as they struggled and died, or managed, against all odds, to survive. In the process, we also miss the continuing legacy of Nazi persecution across generations, and across continents. Mary Fulbrook's encompassing book expands our understanding, exploring the lives of individuals across a full spectrum of suffering and guilt, each one capturing one small part of the greater story. Reckonings seeks to explore the disjuncture between official myths about dealing with the past, on the one hand, and the extent to which the vast majority of Nazi perpetrators evaded justice, on the other. The Holocaust is not mere history, and the memorial landscape barely hints at the maelstrom of reverberations of the Nazi era at a personal level. Reckonings illuminates the stories of those who remained outside the media spotlight, situating their experiences in changing wider contexts, as both persecutors and persecuted sought to account for the past, forge new lives, and make sense of unprecedented suffering.

The Calling. Sooner or later, it claimed every powerful warlock . . . a growing magical compulsion to go north to the mysterious land of Aldagmor that nothing could stop. None ever returned. Hanner the Warlock knew his days were numbered. The Calling pulled at him ceaselessly now, and his ability to resist had begun to crumble. So he determined to find a place where the Calling couldn’t reach him . . . another world, located through a magic tapestry. Every warlock knew that the farther he was from Aldagmor, the weaker the Calling was — and the weaker his magic was, as well, but that was only a secondary consideration. That weakening had given Hanner the idea to find, or make, a place so distant from Aldagmor that the Call couldn’t reach it at all. Unfortunately, the Call took him anyway. And that’s where his story really gets interesting. Because the Calling wasn’t what everyone believed. And when the warlocks who had been Called over the decades suddenly woke up again at the object doing the calling — and found themselves without their powers — their world may never be the same!

In 1957, a boy cleaning out his grandmother's barn in East Tennessee discovers the discarded correspondence of aviation's forgotten pioneer. They were the letters of Edward Huffaker -- written to Samuel Langley, Octave Chanute, and other early aviation scientists. It seems that he had discovered the secrets of how birds fly years before any of the distinguished researchers. These rare letters and unseen photos are reproduced in this work in time for the centennial celebration of flight in December 2003.Best known as an unwelcome assistant to the Wright brothers during their tests at Kitty Hawk in 1901, Huffaker's contributions to the achievement of artificial flight lay undiscovered, until now. From humble beginnings in Greene County, Tennessee, Edward became a skilled mathematician and teacher before turning his attention to the puzzle of flight. His independent studies led him to the brilliant insight that Bernoulli's principle of fluid movement accounts for aerodynamic lift, years before the rest of the world caught on. He worked with Samuel P. Langley, Octave Chanute, and the Wright brothers, all recognized pioneers of aviation. Now through the discovery of a cache of his personal correspondence, Edward C. Huffaker's true legacy can be known to the world, and he can take his rightful place in history as one of the pioneers who never doubted that man could fly.

Did King Arthur really exist? The oldest manuscripts refer to him as a "Lord of Battle" who emerged soon after the Roman Empire crumbled. But what would be the origin of all these stories that turned a war leader into a king, an emperor, a legend... even a god? What if Arthur was really a deity similar to Zeus and Odin, with his roots in the rich Celtic mythology of the British Isles? A study of Arthurian myths reveals Britain's most legendary king as an ancient Sun God, known by many different names in the myths of Wales and Ireland. Even his Knights of the Round Table, and his sister Morgan le Fay can all be identified as ancient Gods and Goddesses of earth, sea and sky. Their survival in Arthurian legend stands as a shining testament of a story far more ancient, but by no means lost to us...

After a few hectic - but wonderful - years, I woke up in a hospital close to my hometown in Sweden. What had happened? Only yesterday, I felt like a champion. Maybe it was my eagerness to explore the world around me that had put me here. Or maybe it was my fear of missing out on some potentially rewarding experience. Maybe I had been just a little bit too eager trying to make my dreams come true, or could my brush with death simply be a case of bad luck? There was a severe inflammation in my brain, which at times made it hard for me even to recognize my loved ones. To me, questions like 2 + 2 seemed more fitting for a rocket scientist. The doctors were deeply concerned and told me that my prognosis was very uncertain. Things certainly looked bleak, but surviving this whole ordeal was still in the cards. At the time, it made more sense to me to simply see my situation as a case of bad luck. Nonetheless, six months later and completely recovered, I realized that this was the result of something completely different. My love for life and my desire to experience as much as possible had blocked my inner signals. It was like an inner voice telling me to "Relax. Don't try to do everything at once. Stop and smell the roses." Unfortunately, I ignored this worried voice that was trying to look out for me. As I took my first stumbling steps leaving the hospital, I can still clearly remember how alert my senses truly were. Children's laughter made me feel all warm inside. The simple beauty of the sky shifting color made me stop all of a sudden in awe. Smelling the first spring flowers gave me goose bumps. The taste of fresh air being sucked into my lungs made me feel deeply relaxed and the sensation of once again experiencing life made me somewhat euphoric. I was completely present in the moment and my senses were shaper than ever before. This was the beginning of a new journey for me. I started to examine exactly what is needed to create the best possible conditions for feeling good and how we are to create the best possible lives for ourselves. Eight years later, I have now compiled my research and theories in this book. My research has led me to conclude that it is possible for each and every one of us to feel good, every day, throughout our whole lives.
