A Billion Gods and Goddesses: The Mythology Behind the Pipe Woman Chronicles

by Lynne Cantwell

More than forty deities, representative of sixteen pantheons from around the world, have found Their way into the twelve books and assorted short stories of the Pipe Woman Chronicles story cycle. In A Billion Gods and Goddesses: The Mythology Behind the Pipe Woman Chronicles, you will find additional information on each of the deities in this urban fantasy series, as well as a brief foundation in comparative mythology.

This second edition adds deities from the final two books in the Pipe Woman’s Legacy series, which had not yet been published when the first edition of this book went to press.

The gods and goddesses in the Pipe Woman Chronicles hail from Alaska to Mexico, and from Russia and Scandinavia to Ireland and Japan — with pantheons of several Native American tribes well represented.

A Billion Gods and Goddesses is meant to be a companion volume to the Pipe Woman Chronicles, but it also serves as a wide-ranging introduction to the subject of mythology. Anyone curious about what others believe will find something to interest them here.

Stoicism: Cure Stress, anger, panic, depression and anxiety with stoic philosophy (Practical Philosophy, Guide for beginners, Virtuous life, Happiness, practical stoicism)

by Poul West

Use stoic philosophy and wisdom to manage your everyday emotions!

You can also read this book FOR FREE on Kindle Unlimited

In todays society there will be demands and distractions coming from every direction at any time of the day. It can be hard to feel like you’re in control of anything and it can result in pure frustration.

But trust me, there is one thing you can control, and that’s YOU.

By adopting stoic philosophy you will learn what it really means to be in control and you will learn to accept and adapt to all the things you can’t control.

The modern society is a chaotic place and I would recommend

Here is a chunk from the subchapter “Conform to reality“:

“We often make travel plans assuming that there will be no traffic delays, assume that we won’t burn the risotto while making supper, or set off on a hike without thinking that it might rain. Yet we have enough past experience to know that these are far from sure-fire outcomes.

The Stoics advocate taking a very clear-eyed view of things. Stoicism is a realistic outlook, one that doesn’t try to fight against the laws of nature or the facts about the world. Attempting to make reality conform to our wishes and desires is futile. The only sensible thing to do is to conform our expectations to reality.

But this is not a philosophy of helplessness and powerlessness. Far from it. We should still strive to change the world for the better. In fact, one of the most famous Stoics, Marcus Aurelius, was the emperor of Rome, and he did not spend his tenure sitting on his hands waiting for the whole thing to blow by! The Stoics were men of action, they were doers. They did not give up their personal battles, their political quests, or their professional goalsâ??they simply approached them with realistic expectations.

We can try to effect change and work to improve things, but whether we succeed or not is out of our hands. It is up to us to eat better and exercise regularly so that we can stay healthy and fit, but it is beyond our control to guarantee that we won’t become ill or injured. We can hold political rallies, vote according to our conscience, and engage in consciousness-raising campaigns, but we should do so while always being aware that political and cultural tides can shift away from progress despite our best efforts. It doesn’t mean we shouldn’t do these thingsâ??this is not a philosophy of resignationâ??it just means that there is no sense in acting entirely shocked and surprised when things don’t pan out the way we wished. We should always remain aware that the outcomes are out of our control.

We should, in other words, not put up a pointless fight against reality, but strive to live in harmony with it.”

by El País

Babelia. Los libros del año… 2013

De la burbuja inmobiliaria a las redes sociales y de la Rusia de Putin a la tensión nacionalista en España, los mejores libros de 2013 -elegidos por medio centenar de críticos y periodistas culturales de EL PAÍS- se acercan a la actualidad tanto desde el ensayo como desde la narrativa.

En el ámbito de la literatura en español, autores consagrados como Rafael Chirbes y Antonio Muñoz Molina -cronistas de la crisis económica desde la ficción y la no ficción- conviven en la selección de Babelia con escritores noveles como César Rendueles y Jesús Carrasco, cuyos primeros libros fueron dos de las revelaciones de la temporada.

En cuanto a la literatura traducida, la lista recoge nombres ya clásicos de la narrativa contemporánea como Richard Ford, Jean Echenoz o Emmanuel Carrère y subraya la valía de la cuentista canadiense Alice Munro, último premio Nobel de Literatura.

Coetzee, Ricardo Piglia, Julio Llamazares, Ana María Machado, John Le Carré, Hilary Mantel, Lara Moreno o Isaac Rosa ocuparon un espacio por el que también pasaron la biografía de Santiago Carrillo escrita por Paul Preston, el gran libro sobre la India de Patrick French o el revolucionario ensayo de Lawrence M. Krauss sobre el porvenir del cosmos: “Un universo de la nada”.
