The Edwardian-era Steampunk tale of Great Britain's greatest detective, Sax Raker, whose investigation into a mysterious, vanishing killer threatens to unravel the entire world around him. -- The Edwardian-era Steampunk tale of Great Britain's greatest detective, Sax Raker, whose investigation into a mysterious, vanishing killer threatens to unravel the entire world around him. The year is 1907, and Britain has entered into a terrifying war with Ruritania, whose strange metal planes darken the skies, and whose monstrous war engines cast looming shadows from across the channel. Doctor Robert Watcham, lately returned to London from the front, makes his homecoming to Dilke Street. There lives his old friend and England's greatest amateur detective, Sax Raker. Even as his beloved city prepares for war, Raker is himself about to embark on the strangest (and, perhaps, the most important) investigation of his career: the case of the man who wasn't there. Is the mysterious, vanishing killer, at last, evidence for Raker's long-held belief in a secret criminal mastermind? Is it some apparition uniquely belonging to this city, a place that seems to have lost all semblance of sense two years ago? Or do all the signs point to something much, much worse?

A disgraced pilot saved by elemental magic. A jaded spy haunted by his past. Occult forces threatening to ruin them both. All Voi wants is to fly her plane and live a decent life, but something stands in her way: emelesia, a rare condition likely to land her in a mental asylum. Forever. Then comes Mr. Callahan, the mysterious agent who convinces Voi to spy for a cure. The catch? She has untapped elemental powers, and the enemy is psychic. Desperate for a remedy, the aviatrix trains for a dangerous mission, wary of the person she's being molded into. The threat of coercion hovers constantly: become an elemental agent, or face the asylum. Meanwhile, Voi struggles with unusual side effects—from overwhelming urges to unintentional manifestations of her powers, due to unchecked emotions. Between learning how to control her abilities, Mr. Callahan's growing reluctance towards her potential, and dealing with psychic revolutionaries... becoming an elementalist seems less and less appealing. Can Voi and her handler learn to trust one another, or will the machinations of paranormal politics lead to their undoing? The Man in the High Castle meets Avatar: The Last Airbender in a dark epic of espionage and elemental magic. The Elementalist: Rise of Hara is T. M. White's debut novel and the first in the Elemental Spies series.

This book argues that ‘deviance’ represents a central issue in neo-Victorian culture, and that the very concept of neo-Victorianism is based upon the idea of ‘diverging’ from accepted notions regarding the nineteenth-century frame of mind. However, the study of the ways in which the Victorian age has been revised by contemporary authors does not only entail analogies with the present but proves – by introducing what is perhaps a more pertinent description of the nineteenth century – that it was much more ‘deviant’ than it is usually depicted and perceived. Deviance in Neo-Victorian Culture: Canon, Transgression, Innovation explores a wide variety of textual forms, from novels to TV series, from movies and graphic novels to visual art. The scholarly and educational purpose of this study is to stimulate readers to approach neo-Victorianism as a complex cultural phenomenon.

Across generations and genres, comics have imagined different views of the future, from unattainable utopias to worrisome dystopias. These presaging narratives can be read as reflections of their authors’ (and readers’) hopes, fears and beliefs about the present. This collection of new essays explores the creative processes in comics production that bring plausible futures to the page. The contributors investigate portrayals in different stylistic traditions—manga, bande desinées—from a variety of theoretical perspectives. The picture that emerges documents the elaborate storylines and complex universes comics creators have been crafting for decades.

'I burned through it . . . Great book: Tinker Tailer Soldier Spook' Ian McDonald Loss is a thing of the past. Murder is obsolete. Death is just the beginning. ***** How do you catch a spy who's already dead? In 1938, death is no longer feared but exploited. Since the discovery of the afterlife, the British Empire has extended its reach into Summerland, a metropolis for the recently deceased. But Britain isn't the only contender for power in this life and the next. The Soviets have spies in Summerland, and the technology to build their own god. When SIS agent Rachel White gets a lead on one of the Soviet moles, blowing the whistle puts her hard-earned career at risk. The spy has friends in high places, and she will have to go rogue to bring him in. ************************* 'Summerland: As if Alfred Hitchcock had made a movie with HP Lovecraft . . . A vision so original it deserves its own subgenre. And all worked out with the diamond-hard logic of a great SF writer. After Summerland, the thriller has a new geometry' Stephen Baxter 'Eerily plausible, beautifully pitched on the cusp between wonder and horror, and thoroughly engrossing from the first page to the last' Alastair Reynolds 'Clever, subtle and . . . has a rich emotional centre' SFX 'Summerland is in its own way as persuasive an example of Rajaniemi's disciplined inventiveness as his better-known hard SF' LOCUS 'Engaging writing, tight plotting and fantastic imagination' Ed McDonald, author of Blackwing 'A tense and twisting tale full of delightful allusions and ingeious' Ken MacLeod 'An intricate and vivid world of technological and spiritual wonder' Kirkus 'Hard to admit, but I think he's better at this stuff than I am' Charles Stross

Francis Simnel was a pathetic old man who lived in a strange world of his own, a world of puppets and marionettes. His sister Agnes was a demoness incarnate, a female fiend in human form, a relentless, ruthless, driving force urging the old man to a macabre destiny. There was something different about Simnel's Puppets. They had personality and a realism that was uncanny. They bore a sinister resemblance to the newly-dead. What began as the wildest and most improbable suspicion, crystallised into near certainty in the mind of Josephine Starr. She began asking questions, and the Satanists scented danger. She fell into a trap that had been set with diabolical cunning. Her life was balanced on a razor edge, with all the macabre resources of the Black Magicians weighing against her.

Is the brain gateway to the soul? Is mind, spirit and soul are the same thing? What are the philosophical and theological perspectives of the soul? What is the connection between the brain and mind/soul/spirit? In Spiritual Mechanics author Dr Tanzia Mustafa delves in to the human mental processes in search of a distinctive programming or pattern indicative of a purpose. In this discussion, she looks for common grounds of pihilosophy, religion and modern science to describe mental phenomenon. She surmises that the modern-day scientific approach might not lead to answers, but perhaps the approach of the ancients might. She chronicles her quest and findings in Spiritual Mechanics. Dr Mustafa analyzes popular theories, such as the theory of evolution. She looks at the ideas of the philosophers, ideas of religions and modern scientific advances then delves deep to establish the presence of a Higher mind or the mind of God. In conclusion, Dr Mustafa determines, in light of modern science, there is a purpose to human existence.

The Bridges of Avalon: Science, Spirit, and the Quest for Unity is more than just another attempt to join the worlds of scientific objectivity and human spirituality. It is also a chronicle of truth-seeking; a story of two everyday people whose lives were touched by the hand of an invisible presence, and who followed the path that beckoned in its wake. Two paths became one; a path of friendship, research, and ever growing understanding as Nick Reiter and Lori Schillig formed The Avalon Foundation in 1996. Now for the first time in print, Nick and Lori present their experiences and discoveries in the realms of alien abductions, psychic research, energy healing, and paranormal investigation. The tales herein will touch any who have experienced first-hand "the mysterious" in their life, and bring fresh thought and speculation to those who have studied these topics in a scholarly way. Whether you are a researcher, spiritual seeker, student, or just another wonderfully everyday person who has dared to dream and ponder that which lies "beyond", the bridges of Avalon await your footsteps!
