One moment Joseph Schwartz is a happily retired tailor in Chicago, 1949. The next he's a helpless stranger on Earth during the heyday of the first Galactic Empire. Earth, as he soon learns, is a backwater, just a pebble in the sky, despised by all the other 200 million planets of the Empire because its people dare to claim it's the original home of man. And Earth is poor, with great areas of radioactivity ruining much of its soil--so poor that everyone is sentenced to death at the age of sixty. Joseph Schwartz is sixty-two. This is young Isaac Asimov's first novel, full of wonders and ideas, the book that launched the novels of the Galactic Empire, culminating in the Foundation series. This is Golden Age SF at its finest. At the Publisher's request, this title is being sold without Digital Rights Management Software (DRM) applied.

Sand and Pebbles

ISBN: 9780887060595

Sand and Pebbles presents the first complete English rendering of Shasekishu--the classic, popular Buddhist "Tale Literature" (setsuwa). This collection of instructive, yet often humorous, anecdotes appeared in the late thirteenth century, within decades of the first stirrings of the revolutionary movements of Kamakura Buddhism. Shasekishu's author, Muju Ichien (1226-1312), lived in a rural temple apart from the centers of political and literary activity, and his stories reflect the customs, attitudes and lifestyles of the commoners. In Sand and Pebbles, complete translations of Book One and other significant narrative parts are supplemented by summaries of the remaining (especially didactic) material and by excerpts from Muju's later work. Introduced by a historical sketch of the period, this work also contains a biography of Muju. Illustrations, charts, a chronology, glossary of terms, notes, an extensive bibliography and an index guide the reader into a seldom seen corner of old Japan. Muju and his writings will interest students of literature as well as scholars of Japanese religion, especially Buddhism. Anthropologists and sociologists will discover details of Kamakura life and thought unrecorded in the official chronicles of the age.

Pebble & I

Author : John Fuller
Publisher: Random House
Total pages: 96 pages
ISBN: 1409090914

From the posing of the very first question in the opening poem, 'Fragment of a Victorian Dialogue', John Fuller's enquiring and elegiac new collection arrives with a sharp sense of mortality, marked by the passing of time. Pebble & I responds to its own philosophical enquiries by looking to a world of vivid colour and substance. From the sun-baked pebbles and plastic ice-cream spines that bedeck the 'The Jetsam Garden', to the swallows that nest under the eaves of a farmhouse in the Cilento Hills in 'Stop', the poems take us from inky, restless seascapes to the warmth of the Mediterranean as they examine the connections between man and 'our material cousins' in nature. Seductive, yet sometimes playfully absurd, Fuller plumbs the depths with his trademark light touch and deft technical skill. The natural and social worlds can be as cruel as they are thrilling but ultimately the voices in this collection are here to celebrate 'elements of the eternal / In the ceremony of life.'

This is a collection of poems woven together with the threads of belonging that bind us to one another and to our memories of the past. It is true that poetry does something that no other kind of writing can do. E.E. Cummings wrote that, “Poetry is the algebra of the heart.” For many of us, poems answer questions and solve mysteries in a distinct way. Kathy’s poems are no different; they reveal a soulful journey, a mapping out of her childhood and her life that many can surely relate to. She explores the concept of time and history and unearths the power that those who have come before us have on our lives. She draws on nature’s beauty and the simplicity of landscape and season to frame the images she offers to her reader. A little break from tradition; the reader will also find two forewords in this wonderful book of poetry! The first one is an in depth profound preview, the second the author has chosen to name it "Forward" a welcome parlour leading into the heartfelt Preface which tells the story behind this wonderful journey of both compassionate and heartwarming poetry!

Author : Clay Barham
Publisher: Strategic Book Publishing
Total pages: 338 pages
ISBN: 1608607992

Self-proclaimed "politically incorrect" Republican Clay Barham has written his third controversial book about America and the ways in which current-day politics are dismantling the original idea of "a prosperous, free nation." Barham contends that the 2008 election, based on the premise of "change," was more about community interests having far more importance and relevance than individual interests. His book lists factual and historical data that is opposite of that agenda. The pursuit and aspirations of free individuals, he believes, is what has brought about the enormous prosperity that we, as a nation, have had for over two centuries. What has happened to the voices who believe in the importance of the individual? Why is America different from the rest of the world? And if "change" is inevitable, will we lose that which sets us apart? Barham investigates the reasons why, with intellectual candor and hard-core facts.
