End of the Line

By: Kevin Wade Johnson

A world where enchanters put their long-ago efforts into living creatures, not swords and such. And those creatures were mostly human beings. And the result is that there are seven magical bloodlines, seven different magical talents, where, if the breeding comes out right, a baby is born who in adolescence will show his clan's magical ability. His clan's. Because, with almost no exceptions, only the boys become blood warriors. Women can only be breeders, and, if...

"You're halfway to being a remarkable warrior," said Gilbert, leaning back against one of the granite blocks while he caught his breath from another sparring session. "What do I do?" "The other half. You've got the warrior part, now you need the blood half." "I will." "I know you will. You're willing to work, work like a maniac, which is great. But there's three things about becoming the best you can with the blood talent." "Tell me." "One is to work...

My ‘Novel’ Account of Human Possibility

By: BS Murthy

The self-account of an improbable literary journey of an Indian novelist, playwright, short story, non-fiction 'n articles writer, translator, a 'little' thinker and a budding philosopher in ‘Addendum to Evolution: Origins of the World by Eastern Speculative Philosophy’ that was originally published in The Examined Life On-Line Philosophy Journal, Vol. 05 Issue 18, Summer 2004.

Whenever I look at my body of multi-genre work in English, the underlying human possibility intrigues me no end, and why not for my mother tongue Telugu, touted as the Italian of the East, has no linguistic connection with it whatsoever. To start with, I was born into a land-owning family in Kothalanka, a remote Indian village, of Andhra Pradesh to be precise that is after the British had folded their colonial tents from the sub-continent, but much before the rural edu...

Law for Gynecology & Obstetrics

By: Dr. Shashank Vyankatesh Parulekar

The graduate training curriculum of a medical degree course includes forensic medicine, which gives the student some knowledge about law as it applies to medical practice.

If left to practice medicine with that much knowledge, the physician can suddenly find himself in deep trouble one day, if he is unfortunate and gets sued for medical malpractice or worse. It is true that t...

This book helps physicians deal with law - the stressful aspect of their practice.

Becoming a Christian Satanist and a Map for a Christian Satanist

By: Lucifer Jeremy White

“Christian Satanist” is a naturally questionable title for anyone but for those who want to raise a hair or two there is this book. It can be taken seriously or just read for amusement but as a religion Christian Satanism is quite exceptional. It comes across as offensive to many as religion is so much coupled with being on a side and fighting for a side. That’s especially so with Satanists and Christians. It is a project made with all sincerity however and its formula l...

Aren’t by these ignorant, imprudent, that fortune repudiated to the mankind as a whole?!

Faker

By: Kevin Wade Johnson

Homeless in a space habitat, in the warren of tunnels dug into an asteroid, is hard enough. What's harder is Gray isn't just homeless, but is a hermaphrodite, shunned or worse by everyone. But in learning to stay alive, Gray learned to read people's body language, to study and remember. Will those skills be enough to make it? Or will Gray have to fake it? A science fiction novel of coming into one's own, of overcoming oppression and exclusion, of using skills an...

Excerpt I: Meanwhile, the predator was stalking me, faking being an ordinary stationer. The corridor stretched gray and rust before and behind me, with occasional hatches and cross-tunnels interrupting. No shop windows here, vacuum-strength glass cost too much. I could count a handful of people walking it aside from me and the faker. A full-time hydroponics gardener in green, a ventilation duct cleaner in brown, a cafe wait-staffer in blue, a nurse in white, and a...

Ācārya Māņikyanandi’s Parīkşāmukha Sūtra – आचार्य माणिक्यनन्दि विर...

By: Vijay K. Jain

The science-of-thought (Nyāya) has always been an integral part of the four constituents (anuyoga) – prathamānuyoga, karuņānuyoga, caraņānuyoga, and dravyānuyoga – of the Jaina Scripture. Through Parīkşāmukha Sūtra, Ācārya Māņikyanandi (circa 7th-8th century A.D.) churned the nectar of the science-of-thought (Nyāya) from the ocean of the words of the master-composers like Ācārya Samantabhadra and Bhaţţa Akalańka Deva. The valid-knowledge (pramāņa) ascertains the true na...

"The valid-knowledge (pramāņa) is the definitive (vyavasāyātmaka) knowledge of the self (sva) and of the things not ascertained earlier (apūrvārtha)."

ДЛИНА ПРОЦЕССА В вопросе понимания что такое время, важно учесть и принять такой атрибут процесса как его длина. Можно использовать термин протяжённость процесса, но мы воспользуемся тем что короче. Итак, длина процесса. В этом мире, как существа мыслящие, мы оцениваем состояние происходящих вокруг нас, и с нами, процессов путём сравнивания их(процессов) друг с другом. Мы сравниваем длину интересующего нас процесса с длиной эталонного процесса. Приведём пример. ...

The Iliad

By: Michael Heumann, Translator; Homer

There is no greater introduction to world literature than Homer’s Iliad. The great epic poem tells the story of the Bronze Age war between the Achaeans (Greeks) and Trojans, the great warriors who did the fighting, the woman they were fighting for (and fighting over), and the gods who egged them on. This is a new, 21st century verse translation by Michael Heumann.  It seeks to retain the spirit and language of Homer’s original Greek while making it readable and enjoyable for a modern audience.

Goddess, sing the rage of Achilles, son of Peleus, which brought countless woes to the Achaeans and sent the souls of many brave heroes to Hades, their bodies made into a feast for dogs and crows all to carry out the unfathomable will of Zeus. Begin from the time when they first quarreled: the warrior king, son of Atreus, and godlike Achilles.

LOS CARACOLES DE CLEOPATRA: Historia Natural sobre caracoles y otr...

By: Julián Monge-Nájera; Katherine Bonilla-Badilla, Editor

Este libro es una pieza de “bolsillo digital”, con pequeñas narraciones basadas en interesantes aspectos biológicos sobre caracoles principalmente, pero además otros invertebrados y vertebrados. Más que exponer su biología, el autor impregna en cada narración todo el misterio y curiosidades que envuelven a estos seres y su relación con la naturaleza.

En su novela de 1897 Drácula, Bram Stoker usó la naturaleza de Transilvania como trasfondo, pero, aparte de los lobos, no convirtió a los animales en personajes de su novela. Esto me llevó a preguntarme qué tipo de caracoles terrestres habitan en el bosque de los Cárpatos que tanto asustó a Jonathan Harker en la tierra de Vlad Drácula.

CLEOPATRA’S SNAIL: Natural history stories about snails and other ...

By: Julián Monge-Nájera; Katherine Bonilla-Badilla, editor

This “digital pocketbook” is composed of short natural history stories, mostly about snails, but also about other animals, and their often-overlooked presence along human history. Instead of just describing their biology, the author imprints on each narration all the mystery and curiosity subjacent in these creatures and their relationship with nature. The book includes two chapters. In the first chapter, it develops the relationship between snails and the history of hu...

In 45 BC the troops of Julius Caesar defeated the Numidian king Juba I. Juba committed suicide in Tunisia, but Julius Caesar took his young son to Rome, a little boy who would be in “preschool” if he lived in our times. Little Juba was not mistreated; on the contrary, he was treated as a noble and received the best education, and he spoke and wrote perfect Latin and Greek. Years passed, Julius Caesar was assassinated, and Cleopatra and Antony died, but they left behind a...
