Gens (Spanish Edition)

by Eduardo Díez

Jamás hubiera podido saber que ese sobre le arrastraría a Gens. Porque nadie sabe qué es Gens.

Sin más ayuda que la de su instinto, Alex Jon deberá integrarse en una oscura sociedad que sobrevive al margen de la ley mediante cadenas de favores y justicia poética con códigos que su cruel pero fascinante líder impone de forma implacable. Sólo la lealtad a sus principios le permitirán salir adelante en un mundo que hace de la violencia su lenguaje y a cuyo origen terminará mucho más vinculado de lo que nunca habría llegado a imaginar.

by Steve Wilson

Ten-year-old Sadie Meadows is reading in bed on New Year’s Eve when she notices an unopened Christmas present amongst the pile beneath her window. She tears the wrapping paper off to find it contains a book called The World from Your Bedroom – There and Back Again, but when she opens it up and begins to read, she is disappointed to see it is nothing more than a travel book packed with pages detailing hundreds of places across the world. She reads the first page, then puts the book down just as sleep claims her at the instant that the New Year arrives. She awakes to find that, instead of being in her bedroom at home in Skipton, somehow she has been transported to Ireland, the location that she had just read about in the book. There follow a series of adventures, each set in a different location, as Sadie finds herself travelling across the globe as she attempts to get back home again. This month’s journeys see her visiting the islands off the American coast and commencing her travels into South America.

La Revolución del Jengibre: Obra dramática en tres actos (Spanish Edition)

by Marina Juilliard

No hay testigo más terrible ni querellante más poderoso que la consciencia que habita dentro nuestro

Polibio

Si el siglo XX quedó grabado en la historia como la expresión más trágica de lo que el hombre es capaz de hacer en nombre del racionalismo, el colectivismo y la defensa genocida de las grandes narrativas, el siglo XXI parece ser la avanzada final y definitiva del escepticismo, el logocentrismo y el relativismo cultural. La pérdida de la garantía espiritual que representó “La Muerte de Dios” ha llevado a que los ánimos de los individuos oscilen como péndulo entre los polos del totalitarismo y del nihilismo; péndulo frágil que amenaza en caer como la Espada de Damocles.

Es claro que el momento histórico exige nuevos actores; o tal vez no. En palabras del historiador y crítico social marxista Christopher Lasch, “Es la lógica del consumismo lo que socava los valores de lealtad y permanencia, promoviendo un conjunto distinto de valores que son destructivos para la vida de la familia […] no sólo parecemos querer olvidar las protestas de los 60′ […] sino nuestro pasado, que nos es propio, como colectivo social, para vivir sólo el momento, el presente, como si se tratase de una pasión sexual. Vivir por uno mismo, no por nuestros antepasados o nuestros descendientes. Estamos perdiendo a un ritmo abismal el sentido de la continuidad histórica”. Un claro ejemplo de ello, aplicado a las relaciones interpersonales, es como diría Slavoj Žižek, “Con todo esto de los sitios de citas en línea, donde calculan tus gustos musicales y elecciones de películas para encontrarte la pareja perfecta; la gente hoy quiere amor sin enamorarse (they want to fall in love, but without the fall)”. 

¿Qué ocurre con las identidades cuando se disuelven, cuando las personas por miedo a ser heridas, empujadas por una patológica necesidad de conservación, se retrotraen del mundo real?

Quien controla el pasado controla el futuro; quien controla el presente controla el pasado
George Orwell

Atlantina, una joven profesora, que acaba de llegar a la ciudad para tomar un cargo en el Colegio, no tardará en darse cuenta de que hay algo mal con las cosas que ocurren alrededor suyo; mientras tanto tendrá que lidiar con la angustia de saber que hay una revolución en su pueblo natal sin que ella pueda hacer nada para proteger a su hermana y a su cuñado. Ella no podrá dar marcha atrás en sus pasos una vez que un joven filósofo entre en su vida, vida que cambiará para siempre.

La tradición no es la adoración a cenizas, sino la preservación del fuego

Gustav Mahler

The Seventh Messenger

by Roland McElroy

Isolated and far from prying eyes on the mainland, a new kind of narcissist named James Strang crowns himself king and declares Beaver Island a sovereign nation. Polygamous marriages, confiscated property, public floggings, and even rape are all part of life on Beaver Island after King Strang arrives in 1848 and sets up his own brand of Mormonism.

A hundred years later, a young Saint Louis socialite named Abby Finlay hears all the stories about King Strang during summers spent vacationing with her family in Charlevoix, just sixteen miles from Beaver Island, never suspecting she had any connection to King Strang. And why should she?

On a humid summer afternoon in 1954, the Post Office delivers a letter to Abby’s doorstep, a letter that had been lost in the postal bureaucracy for a decade. The heavily stained envelope contains a message from her fiancé, absent since the D-Day invasion. Hoping her fiancé is alive and waiting for her, she makes an urgent trip to be reunited with him in Charlevoix, the place, after all, where they fell in love.

Her journey to find her fiancé forces her to confront the agonizing truth of her own past. Beneath the surface of her Camelot perfect world, transgressions, long hidden, burble like a simmering caldera, waiting for that certain awful moment to erupt and rip apart Abby’s life. And just when she’s at her most vulnerable, The Seventh Messenger enters her life, threatening to pull her into his surreal world.

AUTHOR COMMENTS:

As a member of the Hip Hop generation and as a parent, Hip Hop was a huge influence on my life in high school and college. Admittedly, I don’t listen to much of the Rap Music today but it doesn’t take away from the incredible way that Hip Hop affected the world in just a couple generations. This book is a wholesome way to introduce Hip Hop history and art of not just Rap but all the 5 elements of Hip Hop to children. The story explains the impact and art created by poor kids from the Bronx, New York in the late 1970’s and how it became the Hip Hop business of today in a simple beautifully illustrated way that kids can understand.
