Book Summary:

THE INSTANT NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER. From Kahran and Regis Bethencourt, the dynamite husband and wife duo behind CreativeSoul Photography, comes GLORY, a photography book that shatters the conventional standards of beauty for Black children. Featuring a foreword by Amanda Seales With stunning images of natural hair and gorgeous, inventive visual storytelling, GLORY puts Black beauty front and center with more than 100 breathtaking photographs and a collection of powerful essays about the children. At its heart, it is a recognition and celebration of the versatility and innate beauty of black hair, and black beauty. The glorious coffee-table book pays homage to the story of our royal past, celebrates the glory of the here and now, and even dares to forecast the future. It brings to life past, present, and future visions of black culture and showcases the power and beauty of recognizing and celebrating oneself. Beauty as an expression of who you are is power. When we define our own standards of beauty, we take back that power. GLORY encourages children around the world to feel that power and harness it.

Book Summary:

La historia nos enseña que los grandes cambios están siempre enmarcados en reflexiones profundas. A veces, como ha ocurrido con algunas revoluciones, las transformaciones más radicales de la sociedad siguen los rumbos que antes abrió el pensamiento; otras veces, el mundo se vuelve distinto a tal velocidad que solamente después empezamos a preguntarnos qué ha pasado. Seguramente éste es el caso que estamos viviendo ahora que la pandemia ha alterado tan drásticamente nuestras formas de relacionarnos, de trabajar, de estudiar, de divertirnos, y cuando la lucha por la supervivencia ha presidido la totalidad de nuestros afanes como especie. Poco de lo que tenemos hoy con nosotros lo esperábamos cuando comenzó 2020. Así que, ahora que se acerca el fin de este año doloroso, acaso sea la ocasión óptima para comenzar a pensar qué nos ha ocurrido, hacia dónde vamos ahora, qué hemos podido aprender. Por ejemplo: es un hecho que la desigualdad, uno de los peores lastres para alcanzar la justicia social en México, crecerá gravemente debido a la crisis actual. ¿Qué debemos tener en cuenta para atenuar lo más posible el sufrimiento que esa desigualdad traerá consigo? Y, más allá de eso, ¿qué podemos ir haciendo para evitarla? El final de esteaño queremos pasarlo a tu lado con una sonrisa, y por ello elegimos como nuestro personaje de portada a Phoebe Waller-Bridge: actriz, escritora, productora, su humor inteligente y audaz la ha vuelto una de las presencias más refrescantes que podemos encontrar en la pantalla. Ya verás por qué. (ITESO)

Book Summary:

Circle of Light is a story of shadows. Madison Sinclair has a power. Growing inside her since childhood, it has molded her life and the lives of everyone around her. Struggling to understand and master this force, she balances on the edge of evil. Her intimate relationship with God is challenged by her obsession with the occult until a confrontation with a demon brings her choices sharply into focus. Her obsession becomes a vow to use whatever gift shes been given to fight the Dark One and discourage others from following the treacherous path of black magic. Plagued by constant fear, Madison struggles to uncover the reason behind her many dark encounters and to find purpose and sanity in this unnatural existence. Enlisting the help of her friends, she embarks on a journey to the other side of reality. Protecting herself with The Light, she tries desperately to bring into focus the shadowy presence that fills her mind. Life ensues, detouring her magical apprenticeship with a failed marriage and a near fatal accident. Finally, after thirty-three years, she realizes in a moment of crystalline clarity that this power cannot be possessed, and that only the Creator has dominion over her fate. She turns her back on her obsession with one final promise to God. Or at least, she tries to. Written roman a clef, this supernatural thriller is based on personal experiences. In this age where media romanticizes the occult, I felt compelled to show others what life looks like from inside the crystal ball. My coworker no longer yearns for special abilities now that shes read my tale.

Book Summary:

An expanded, fully illustrated, and up-to-date edition of the classic cultural history of vampires Vampyres is a comprehensive and generously illustrated history and anthology of vampires in literature, from the folklore of eastern Europe to the Romantics and beyond. It incorporates extracts from a huge range of sources—from Bram Stoker’s detailed research notes for Dracula to penny dreadfuls, to Angela Carter’s The Bloody Chamber (new to this edition) which is analyzed by the author in a broader cultural context. This revised and expanded edition of the 1978 classic brings Vampyres up to date with twenty-first-century vampire literature, including new text extracts, commentary, and a revised introduction. For the first time, Christopher Frayling also explores the development of the vampire in the visual arts in four color-plate sections, with illustrations ranging from eighteenth-century prints to twenty-first-century film stills, demonstrating the enduring appeal of the vampire from popular press to fine art and, finally, to film.

Book Summary:

An incredible publishing event: a philosopher draws on his own experience of madness as he takes readers on an unforgettble journey through the philosophy of psychosis and the psychosis of philosophy. In this book, philosopher and linguist Wouter Kusters examines the philosophy of psychosis--and the psychosis of philosophy. By analyzing the experience of psychosis in philosophical terms, Kusters not only emancipates the experience of the psychotic from medical classification, he also emancipates the philosopher from the narrowness of academia, allowing philosphers to engage in real-life praxis, philosophy in vivo. Philosophy and madness--Kusters's preferred, non-medicalized term--coexist, one mirroring the other. Drawing on his own experience of madness--two episodes of psychosis, twenty years apart--Kusters argues that psychosis presents itself to the psychotic as an inescapable truth and reality.

James, Arthur Machen, Bram Stoker, Algernon Blackwood, Charlotte Perkins Gilman, and others. It includes rare and little-known pieces by writers such as William Maginn, Francis Marion Crawford, W. F. Harvey, and William Hope Hodgson, and shows the important role played by periodicals in popularizing the horror story. Wherever possible, stories are reprinted in their first published form, with background information about their authors and helpful, contextualizing annotation. Darryl Jones's lively introduction discusses horror's literary evolution and its articulation of cultural preoccupations and anxieties. These are stories guaranteed to freeze the blood, revolt the senses, and keep you awake at night: prepare to be terrified!

Ghosts are the true immortals, and the dead grow more alive all the time. Wraiths have a greater vitality to-day than ever before. They are far more numerous than at any time in the past, and people are more interested in them. There are persons that claim to be acquainted with specific spirits, to speak with them, to carry on correspondence with them, and even some who insist that they are private secretaries to the dead. Others of us mortals, more reserved, are content to keep such distance as we may from even the shadow of a shade.

Book Summary:

After leaving Vienna, and long before you come to Buda-Pesth, the Danube enters a region of singular loneliness and desolation, where its waters spread away on all sides regardless of a main channel, and the country becomes a swamp for miles upon miles, covered by a vast sea of low willow-bushes. On the big maps this deserted area is painted in a fluffy blue, growing fainter in color as it leaves the banks, and across it may be seen in large straggling letters the word Sümpfe, meaning marshes. In high flood this great acreage of sand, shingle-beds, and willow-grown islands is almost topped by the water, but in normal seasons the bushes bend and rustle in the free winds, showing their silver leaves to the sunshine in an ever-moving plain of bewildering beauty. These willows never attain to the dignity of trees; they have no rigid trunks; they remain humble bushes, with rounded tops and soft outline, swaying on slender stems that answer to the least pressure of the wind; supple as grasses, and so continually shifting that they somehow give the impression that the entire plain is moving and alive. For the wind sends waves rising and falling over the whole surface, waves of leaves instead of waves of water, green swells like the sea, too, until the branches turn and lift, and then silvery white as their under-side turns to the sun. Happy to slip beyond the control of stern banks, the Danube here wanders about at will among the intricate network of channels intersecting the islands everywhere with broad avenues down which the waters pour with a shouting sound; making whirlpools, eddies, and foaming rapids; tearing at the sandy banks; carrying away masses of shore and willow-clumps; and forming new islands innumerable which shift daily in size and shape and possess at best an impermanent life, since the flood-time obliterates their very existence. Properly speaking, this fascinating part of the river's life begins soon after leaving Pressburg, and we, in our Canadian canoe, with gipsy tent and frying-pan on board, reached it on the crest of a rising flood about mid-July. That very same morning, when the sky was reddening before sunrise, we had slipped swiftly through still-sleeping Vienna, leaving it a couple of hours later a mere patch of smoke against the blue hills of the Wienerwald on the horizon; we had breakfasted below Fischeramend under a grove of birch trees roaring in the wind; and had then swept on the tearing current past Orth, Hainburg, Petronell (the old Roman Carnuntum of Marcus Aurelius), and so under the frowning heights of Theben on a spur of the Carpathians, where the March steals in quietly from the left and the frontier is crossed between Austria and Hungary.
