Erin Shields turns heaven and hell upside down in this witty, modern, feminist retelling of John Milton's epic poem about the first battle between good and evil.
Author: Erin Shields
"The biggest mistake any of us could make would be to underestimate Satan." The seventeenth century and present day are seamlessly intertwined as Satan vents to an audience about her frustration at being cast out of Heaven and her thoughts on oppression. When she finds out that God has created delicate new creatures called "humans," she crafts a plan for revenge and betrayal on the Almighty. Erin Shields turns Heaven and Hell upside down in this witty, modern, feminist retelling of John Milton's epic poem about the first battle between good and evil. Shields's wickedly smart and funny script questions the reasons of the universe, the slow process of evolution and the freedom of knowledge. The debate over right and wrong has never been so satisfying.

Author: Mary Shelley
"There is something at work in my soul which I do not understand..." Mary Shelley: literary queen of the Romantic era, deeply influenced by the Gothic tradition, and arguably the matriarch of the Science Fiction genre. Her works, though composed in the 1800s, contain elements straight out of today's headlines: the tension between what science can do vs. what it should do, cryonics, contagion, apocalypse and other dark futuristic themes. Shelley introduced the world to the first "mad scientist" character in her most popular work, Frankenstein, inspiring generations of horror stories, films, and comic books. This collection includes: Novels Frankenstein, or the Modern Prometheus Mathilda The Last Man Valperga Lodore Falkner The Fortunes of Perkin Warbeck Children's Literature Proserpine & Midas Short Stories The Dream The Mortal Immortal The Evil Eye The Invisible Girl The Heir of Mondolfo Transformation Non-Fiction Notes to the Complete Poetical Works of Percy Bysshe Shelley Biography Mrs. Shelley by Lucy Madox Rosetti Audiobook Links: Links to download free, full-length audiobooks for some of Mary Shelley's works can be found at the end of the book.

Author: Alex Lickerman
Publisher: Health Communications, Inc.
Fresh on the heels of his phenomenally-received book, The Undefeated Mind, Dr. Lickerman and co-author Dr. ElDifrawi offer a whole new perspective on understanding and achieving happiness. In this highly engaging and eminently practical book-told in the form of a Platonic dialogue recounting real-life patient experiences- Drs. Lickerman and ElDifrawi assert that the reason genuine, longlasting happiness is so difficult to achieve and maintain is that we're profoundly confused not only about how to go about it, but also about what happiness is. In identifying nine basic erroneous views we all have about what we need to be happy-views they term the core delusions-Lickerman and ElDifrawi show us that our happiness depends not on our external possessions or even on our experiences but rather on the beliefs we have that shape our most fundamental thinking. These beliefs, they argue, create ten internal life-conditions, or worlds, through which we continuously cycle and that determine how happy we're able to be. Drawing on the latest scientific research as well as Buddhist philosophy, Lickerman and ElDifrawi argue that once we learn to embrace a correct understanding of happiness, we can free ourselves from the suffering the core delusions cause us and enjoy the kind of happiness we all want, the kind found in the highest of the Ten Worlds, the world of Enlightenment.

These are the atrocities our hearts cannot understand, the horrors every person desperately wants to escape but has no idea how.
Author: John Nichols
Journal and Workbook Companion to GOD is HERE Our world can be cruel--we experience a mixture of health and sickness, hope and fear, peace and discord, wealth and poverty, love and hate. In the aftermath of tragedy, people ask, "If God is good and cares for me, why does He allow suffering? Where is justice for evil? Where is healing for my loved ones? When I'm hurting, where is God?"In GOD is HERE, John W. Nichols shares how he hated God because of His apparent absence. But when John was at the peak of his anger, God spoke to him in an undeniable way. The author weaves in the story of God revealing His love with a Biblical explanation of the trials we face, while inviting us to break down any walls we've put between us and Jesus, so we can return to Him the love He first showed us. What GOD is HERE is About: Why do we experience suffering? Does God send sickness, natural disasters, and war to teach us? Can we trust God after tragedy occurs? How can we find true comfort? Is there more to life than what we see? Are we influenced by spiritual forces? Can we interact with God? How does God care for us? Does God have a good plan for our lives? Can we make a difference in this world? And so much more... Book Sample: Introduction--Paradise Lost IMAGINE A PERFECT WORLD. Where the evils of crime, hate, and envy are inconceivable--in fact, completely alien. There's no pain, sickness, disease, or disability. No stinging bugs, venomous, or bloodthirsty animals. There aren't even earthquakes, volcanoes, tsunamis, or tornadoes.In this imagined utopia, motives are genuine. No one has thoughts they can't tell others. We have no misunderstandings and don't need to pretend. Our best foot is always forward because both our feet are perfect. There's constant pleasure. People smile and laugh, freely and unashamedly. Joy overflows each person's heart. Everyone is known and loved. Peace covers the land...Whether we recognize it or not, this is what each of our hearts cries for. Why don't we have it? What We've Had As Long As We Can Remember When we look at the real world, we see a blurred image of the perfect, tainted with all the opposite characteristics. In the best of times, imperfection lingers and calamity waits at the door. In the darkest times, we cling to the hope that disaster can only last so long.Even attempting to lead a life of joy and selflessness is draining. Each heart instinctively knows our many anxieties are an injustice. But despite every effort, we suffer.Faithful friends are rare. Community threatens to shun. We long to be known and accepted, even as we put up walls. Our goodness, we fear, is surely nullified by the hate, impatience, lust, and envy hidden within.We have impure motives, dirty politics, depression, illness, betrayal, starvation, deformity, natural disasters, perversion, rage, chaos, war, and death--among many other problems. These are the atrocities our hearts cannot understand, the horrors every person desperately wants to escape but has no idea how...... In this book, I'll share the story of God breaking down my wrong ideas and how He helped me see another perspective. I'll talk about the darkness in us and the world, as well as the Light, and how you can know God's goodness despite the struggles you're facing. My hope is you'll walk away with a peace that defies understanding.You've had different experiences than mine, but I believe you're not reading this by accident; and God wants to help you in a similar way as He has me. He wants you to know: He's always been with you, desperately wanting to help, and never holding back His love... Be sure to sign up for the free audiobook inside!

Learn to call on the divine assistance of angelic forces to shape your life in this in-depth guide from Damien Echols “Angels do not belong to any one single religion, system, or dogma,” teaches Damien Echols. “They don't care what religion we subscribe to. The angels are here to help us grow, evolve, and reach our full potential.” With Angels and Archangels, this bestselling author combines his unique blend of hard-won experience and scholarship to create a breakthrough guide to understanding what angels are, how they make themselves available, and magickal practices to invoke their power to transform your life. Damien Echols has helped ignite a wave of new interest in magick—the Western path of spiritual growth and awakening. Here Echols clears away the cultural confusion and misrepresentation of angels to provide a lucid and practical set of tools for working with these timeless forces for divine wisdom and healing power. When Echols was wrongly convicted of murder as part of the West Memphis Three case, he had every reason to reject angels as being part of the dogma his persecutors wielded against him. “Never in a million years did I think that one day I would have a passion for the subject of angels,” he says. “Yet these days, nearly every act of magick I perform involves evoking angels. Because angel magick works. Always. I've never found any other form of magick that comes close.”

Life After Death is destined to be a riveting, explosive classic of prison literature.
Author: Damien Echols
Category: Biography & Autobiography
The New York Times bestselling memoir by Damien Echols of the West Memphis Three, who was falsely convicted of three murders and spent nearly eighteen years on Death Row. In 1993, teenagers Damien Echols, Jason Baldwin, and Jessie Misskelley, Jr.—who have come to be known as the West Memphis Three—were arrested for the murders of three eight-year-old boys in Arkansas. The ensuing trial was marked by tampered evidence, false testimony, and public hysteria. Baldwin and Misskelley were sentenced to life in prison; while eighteen-year-old Echols, deemed the “ringleader,” was sentenced to death. Over the next two decades, the WM3 became known worldwide as a symbol of wrongful conviction and imprisonment, with thousands of supporters and many notable celebrities who called for a new trial. In a shocking turn of events, all three men were released in August 2011. Now Echols shares his story in full—from abuse by prison guards and wardens, to portraits of fellow inmates and deplorable living conditions, to the incredible reserves of patience, spirituality, and perseverance that kept him alive and sane while incarcerated for nearly two decades. In these pages, Echols reveals himself a brilliant writer, infusing his narrative with tragedy and irony in equal measure: he describes the terrors he experienced every day and his outrage toward the American justice system, and offers a firsthand account of living on Death Row in heartbreaking, agonizing detail. Life After Death is destined to be a riveting, explosive classic of prison literature.

When YouTube ghost hunters Sam and Colby head to Kauai for an annual bro trip with two childhood buddies, they’re dying for a break from paranormal investigations—instead, they find themselves at the center of their most horrifying mystery yet. Four best friends—Check. One unforgettable week in Kauai—Check. Sun, surf, and hula girls in bikinis—Check. A creepy mansion on the forbidden side of the island…. Check? Sam and Colby’s vacation in paradise goes from enchanting, to weird, to deadly, when Trey, an old acquaintance, insists they can’t leave without a visit to the legendary Na Pali Coast. It turns out Trey has been living at the infamous Belle Estate, owned by a wealthy and eccentric widow—who locals believe is a witch. The only thing odder than how a twenty-three-year-old college kid from Utah ended up living in a remote and isolated mansion on the North Shore of Kauai is that he is romantically involved with a woman old enough to be their grandmother. Belle Estate’s walls hold an eerie sway over all who enter, and a dark, shadowy presence seems to be following them around the grounds. When an unfavorable change of plans forces them to stay overnight, Sam and Colby are in for the most terrifying encounter of their lives.

Lyra's search for a kidnapped friend uncovers a sinister plot involving stolen children and turns into a quest to understand a mysterious phenomenon called Dust. In The Subtle Knife she is joined on her journey by Will, a boy who possesses a knife that can cut windows between worlds.

The epic story Pullman tells is not only a spellbinding adventure featuring armoured polar bears, magical devices, witches and daemons, it is also an audacious and profound re-imagining of Milton's Paradise Lost.
