The Progeny by Book Resume:

New York Times bestselling author Tosca Lee brings a modern twist to an ancient mystery surrounding Elizabeth Bathory, the most notorious female serial killer of all time. Emily Jacobs is the descendant of a serial killer. Now, she’s become the hunted. She’s on a quest that will take her to the secret underground of Europe and the inner circles of three ancient orders—one determined to kill her, one devoted to keeping her alive, and one she must ultimately save. Filled with adrenaline, romance, and reversals, The Progeny is the present-day saga of a 400-year-old war between the uncanny descendants of “Blood Countess” Elizabeth Bathory, the most prolific female serial killer of all time, and a secret society dedicated to erasing every one of her descendants. It is a story about the search for self filled with centuries-old intrigues against the backdrop of atrocity and hope.

Progeny by Shaun Hutson Book Resume:

Can you imagine what it would be like not to have any memory of your first ten years of life?

Jake Howard knows how that feels.  He's a successful psychiatrist and writer.  He has an apparently adoring lover and the respect of his peers.  But he also has a huge gap where his childhood memories should be.  What's more, Jake is tormented by the worst kind of nightmares.  Nightmares he's not even sure are his.

Tormented by dreams and visions that threaten his sanity, he must find their source in order to understand and banish them.

His hunt will take him to a run-down seaside town, to the place where he was raised and also forty years back in time, to what he must confront to release himself from the grip of the visions and also to discover the hidden memories.

However, he will discover things about himself he did not dare imagine.  Things he really didn't want to know.

And he will also discover that not everyone is what they appear to be.  Those revelations will expose a darkness and horror that no one should have to confront.

Sometimes a lie is preferable.

Some truth is best left undiscovered...

Permissible Progeny? by Sarah Hannan,Samantha Brennan,Richard Vernon Book Resume:

This volume contributes to the growing literature on the morality of procreation and parenting. About half of the chapters take up questions about the morality of bringing children into existence. They discuss the following questions: Is it wrong to create human life? Is there a connection between the problem of evil and the morality of procreation? Could there be a duty to procreate? How do the environmental harms imposed by procreation affect its moral status? Given these costs, is the value of establishing genetic ties ever significant enough to render procreation morally permissible? And how should government respond to peoples' motives for procreating? The other half of the volume considers moral and political questions about adoption and parenting. One chapter considers whether the choice to become a parent can be rational. The two following chapters take up the regulation of adoption, focusing on whether the special burdens placed on adoptive parents, as compared to biological parents, can be morally justified. The book concludes by considering how we should conceive of adequacy standards in parenting and what resources we owe to children. This collection builds on existing literature by advancing new arguments and novel perspectives on existing debates. It also raises new issues deserving of our attention. As a whole it is sure to generate further philosophical debate on pressing and rich questions surrounding the bearing and rearing of children.

Immortal Progeny by Philippa Ballantine Book Resume:

For generations the world of Rahvas has been awash in holy war between the many temples of its gods and goddesses. Priests and priestesses have built towering monsters to destroy one another and prove their deity the One True God. But those temples also made two mistakes. When three little girls came out of the void where Gods are born, they mistake them for humans and let them live. Separated, Rowan, Vervain and Amaranth have lived out very different lives, but now they are coming of age. One lived as a temple acolyte, another as meat for the creation of progeny, while the third learns the magic of the atheists. As the sisters' spiritual power unfolds and they learn the truth of who they are, the temples and all those that fight for them will find a new war on their doorstep. Rahvas will become the physical and spiritual battleground between gods and monsters.

Progeny by Philip K. Dick Book Resume:

This early work by Philip K. Dick was originally published in 1954 and we are now republishing it with a brand new introductory biography. 'Progeny' is a short story about a friendship between a boy and a robot. Philip Kindred Dick was born on December 16 1928, in Chicago, Illinois. Dick and his family moved to the Bay Area of San Francisco when he was young, and later on to Washington DC following his parents divorce. Dick attended Elementary school and then a Quaker school before the family moved back to California. It was around this time that Dick began to take an active interest in the science fiction genre, reading his first magazine ‘Stirring Science Stories’, at age twelve. Dick married five times between 1959 and 1973, and had three children. He sold his first story in 1951 and from that point on he wrote full-time, selling his first novel in 1955. In addition to 44 published novels, Dick wrote an estimated 121 short stories, most of which appeared in science fiction magazines during his lifetime. In addition to 44 published novels, Dick wrote an estimated 121 short stories, most of which appeared in science fiction magazines during his lifetime. After his death, many of his stories made the transition to the big screen, with blockbuster films such as Blade Runner, Total Recall and Minority Report being based on his works.

Progeny: The Complete Trilogy by Shawn Hopkins Book Resume:

AN EVIL FROM THE VERY BEGINNING IS STILL HERE... Trapped behind the veil of another reality, a Fallen angel from antiquity sets in motion a plan of escape—a plan which involves summoning his real world progeny to himself through an oceanic gateway. As the day of escape nears, those the angel has abducted fight to flee the island themselves. But can they decode the megalithic formulas in time, or will they be left behind, trapped in an unsettled version of Bermuda for the rest of their lives? And if the angel does escape back to the real world, will he succeed in freeing his condemned brethren from Tartarus, unleashing tribulation on the earth in an attempt to reinstate a long lost Golden Age? In a battle between Good and Evil, Light and Darkness, a group of ex-soldiers will come face-to-face with the birth of a cosmic, age-long conspiracy that could spell the end of the world as they know it. Described by readers as "Dan Brown meets LOST meets Left Behind," Nephilim Island begins with John Carter looking for his missing brother in a tranquil Bermuda and ends with an epic clash between worlds in Apocalypse Rising. This special edition contains all three novels in the Progeny trilogy.

The Devil's Progeny by Cathy Dobson Book Resume:

When Professor Holda Weisel receives an unexpected visit from her student, Lars Koch, she is shocked to learn that his father, the infamous TV talk show host, died two days earlier under unexplained circumstances. His death appears to be linked to old diaries written by his grandmother and great-grandmother, which he was reading at the time. Lars, a usually withdrawn and unlikeable loner with disturbing alt-right leanings, resolves to investigate the mystery. With the aid of Holda and her husband Rupert, the town’s archivist, Lars begins to dig deeper into his murky family history, uncovering unsettling secrets at every turn. The reader is drawn into a world of prejudice, prostitution and malicious folklore set during the occupation of the Rhineland and up to World War II. As he explores further, Lars realises how these events link him inexorably to the far-right, anarchistic Reichsbürger movement – revealing he is directly in harm’s way. Yet this is only the beginning of his nightmare...

Organizational Progeny by Tana Johnson Book Resume:

In life, delegation is fundamental. But it is difficult, especially when attempted internationally, as in the long delegation chains to the United Nations family and other global governance structures. There, much hinges on the design of delegation relationships. What prompts another entity to fall in line — and if it does not, what can be done? For international organizations, the conventional answer is simple: when designing institutions, member-states endow themselves with stringent control mechanisms, such as monopolization of financing or vetoes over decision-making in the new body. But as Tana Johnson shows, the conventional answer is outdated. States rarely design international organizations alone. Instead, negotiations usually involve international bureaucrats employed in pre-existing organizations. To unveil these overlooked but pivotal players, Organizational Progeny uses new data on nearly 200 intergovernmental organizations and detailed accounts of the origins of prominent and diverse institutions — the World Food Program, United Nations Development Program, International Energy Agency, Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, Financial Action Task Force, Joint United Nations Program on HIV/AIDS. When international bureaucrats have a say, they often strive to insulate new institutions against the usual control mechanisms by which states steer, monitor, or reverse organizational activities. This increases control costs for states, is difficult to roll back, and even produces bodies that powerful countries initially opposed. The result is a proliferation of organizational progeny over which national governments are literally losing "control". Johnson explores what this means for the democratic nature of global governance and how practitioners can encourage or staunch this phenomenon. Transformations in Governance is a major new academic book series from Oxford University Press. It is designed to accommodate the impressive growth of research in comparative politics, international relations, public policy, federalism, environmental and urban studies concerned with the dispersion of authority from central states up to supranational institutions, down to subnational governments, and side-ways to public-private networks. It brings together work that significantly advances our understanding of the organization, causes, and consequences of multilevel and complex governance. The series is selective, containing annually a small number of books of exceptionally high quality by leading and emerging scholars. The series targets mainly single-authored or co-authored work, but it is pluralistic in terms of disciplinary specialization, research design, method, and geographical scope. Case studies as well as comparative studies, historical as well as contemporary studies, and studies with a national, regional, or international focus are all central to its aims. Authors use qualitative, quantitative, formal modeling, or mixed methods. A trade mark of the books is that they combine scholarly rigour with readable prose and an attractive production style. Winner of the International Studies Association's Chadwick Alger Prize for best book on international organization and multilateralism. The series is edited by Liesbet Hooghe and Gary Marks of the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill, and the VU Amsterdam, and Walter Mattli of the University of Oxford.

Kafka’s Italian Progeny by Saskia Elizabeth Ziolkowski Book Resume:

While many scholars of world literature view national literary traditions as resolved and stable, Kafka’s Italian Progeny takes the fluid identity of the modern Italian tradition as an opportunity to reconsider its dimensions and influencers. Exploring a distinct but unexamined Kafkan tradition in modern Italian literature, it brings Italian literary works into larger debates and reorients the critical view of the Italian literary landscape. The book calls attention to the way Kafkan themes, narrative strategies, and formal experimentation appear in a range of Italian authors. Offering new perspectives on familiar figures, such as Italo Calvino, Italo Svevo, and Elena Ferrante, it also sheds light on some lesser-known authors, including Tommaso Landolfi, Paola Capriolo, and Lalla Romano. Using diverse approaches to explore thematic, generic, historical, and cultural connections between Kafka’s works and those of Italian authors, the author argues for a new view of Italian literature that includes talking animals, parental bonds, modernist realism, literary detective novels, and lyrical microfiction. Whereas Kafka has been mobilized in discourses on minor and world literature, Kafka’s Italian Progeny investigates the particular nature of the Italian reception of Kafka to reveal the richness and variety of modern Italian literature.

Progeny Unbound by Charles Law Book Resume:

In this fifth and final installment of the Hart family dynasty chronicles, Charles Law turns to mid-nineteenth century Quebec, Canada, to capture the rise and fall of the next generation of the Hart family. What is this third generation of Harts to make of their forbears pursuit of wealth? The cousins, the multiple grandchildren of Dolly and Aaron Hart, were taught to revere their grandfather, though none ever knew him while he was alive. But they have little reason to emulate so illustrious a personage who, after all, was no more than a shopkeeper, sutler, fur trader, and minor landowner before he died in 1800. Instead, this generation clings to Harts legend of being a British army officer; most become lawyers, doctors, or industrialists because of the money he accumulated and his sons Moses and Ezekiel aggrandized. These fortunes require protection via the lawand it was rather farsighted that several of the cousins learned the law. In the year or two following the suppression of the Papineau-led rebellion in Canada, this learning is put to more political purposes, and Aaron Philip, Aaron Ezekiel, and Adolphus Mordecai are all involved in the aftermath of that failed struggle. In their hands, the dynasty takes a different turn, perhaps one far removed from their patriarchs enduring legacy.

Plato's Progeny by Melissa Lane Book Resume:

Socrates wrote nothing; Plato's accounts of Socrates helped to establish western politics, ethics, and metaphysics. Both have played crucial and dramatically changing roles in western culture. In the last two centuries, the triumph of democracy has led many to side with the Athenians against a Socrates whom they were right to kill. Meanwhile the Cold War gave us polar images of Plato as both a dangerous totalitarian and an escapist intellectual. And visions of Plato have proliferated at the heart of postmodern critiques of the very idea of metaphysics and politics. Plato's Progeny begins with an account of modern responses to the trial of Socrates and the controversial question of Socrates' relation to Plato. At its centre are two chapters exploring the idea of Platonic origins in and for philosophy, and of Platonic foundations for philosophical politics. Exploring unfamiliar as well as familiar invocations of Plato, Melissa Lane argues that twentieth-century ideological battles have obscured the importance of Socratic individualism, the nature of Platonic ethics, and the value of Platonic politics. Succinct and clearly written, this is an ideal guide for everyone interested in the way philosophers are still writing footnotes to Plato.

The Fate of Saul's Progeny in the Reign of David by Cephas TA Tushima Book Resume:

This narrative critical study offers a bold and comprehensive analysis of the relationship between David and Saul's heirs. Tushima inquires into whether Saulides' tragedies were due to continuing divine retribution, pure happenstance, or David orchestration. Focusing on the story of David and its interconnections with the fate of the Saulides, and employing the criterion of justice, the author presents the other side of King David, who is generally depicted as hero. Tushima argues that David was, most often, unjust and calculating in his dealings with the vanquished house of Saule. Thematic and motific threads arising from this study are considered within their contexts in Israel's traditions for their biblical-theological and redemptive-historical import.

Maggie Johnson had heard of those poor people that had suffered from some horrible near death experience like all of us. She never realized that was just the tip of the iceberg. There were those that came back from a very brief look across the veil of death that were relatively unchanged. And then there were those like her. She still only remembered the smallest portion but was now no longer human but something else, something more. Maggie still looked human on the outside, still felt and remembered everything she had been but now there was this driving force in her to no longer sit on the sidelines and watch as life passed her by. That all consuming fire would not just change Maggie’s body but her heart, mind and soul as well. She was the newest child of the Progeny of Lazarus.

Paternity, Progeny, and Perpetuation by Steffan Mathias Book Resume:

This book offers a fresh perspective on the importance of progeny and perpetuation of the family line in the Hebrew tradition. Steffan Matthias argues that the Hebrew bible depicts failing to protect the transmission of the family line as both a failure in the social order, a threat to the afterlife, and a failure in masculinity, leading to the eradication of the name and memory of the man and the destruction of the household. Using the work of Pierre Bourdieu, as well as anthropological and gender-critical insights, Matthias reassess pertinent texts which respond to the threat of men dying without children, such as levirate marriage (Deut 22:5-10) or the erection of monuments (Isa 56:5-8). Themes such as death, burial and memorial, identity, covenant, name, genealogy, property, seed and sexuality, rather than being treated as separate parts of social or family life, are critically assessed in light of each other. Matthias instead illustrates how they form part of the same discourse of social reproduction, in which the integrity of the family is protected and passed down from father to son in generations of descendants. Paternity, Progeny, and Perpetuation raises profound questions regarding the subtle ways texts that respond to this threat of social annihilation – the destruction of the father and his line - reinforce social boundaries and construct men as transmitters of identity and women as submissive counterparts.

God Sent a Baby: Daily Advent Reflections on Progeny, Promises, and the Plan of Redemption by Laura N. Sweet Book Resume:

God sent a baby. It is an often-repeated pattern in the Bible―early intimations of the birth of God's own Son―the final word of God to his people. When people called upon God for justice, deliverance, healing, and restoration, God sent a baby. Many of these babies foreshadowed the life and ministry of Jesus Christ―a picture, on a human scale, of the baby who would come one day to rescue and save us all. While these babies grew up to be men who were limited in their power and their righteousness, they hint at the holy and all-powerful Son of God. Babies like Seth, Isaac, Moses, Samuel, Solomon, and John anticipated the coming of the Savior, Jesus Christ. They foretold something of his ministry and his kingdom. This advent devotional is all about the babies―wonderful gifts from the Father! And it's all about the birth of the baby who came to deliver us all: Jesus, our blessed redeemer! December 1 through December 25, each daily advent reading is followed by reflection questions and ample room to journal a personal response.

THE NEPHILIM WERE ON THE EARTH IN THOSE DAYS - AND ALSO AFTERWARD - WHEN THE SONS OF GOD WENT TO THE DAUGHTERS OF MEN AND HAD CHILDREN BY THEM. THEY WERE THE HEROES OF OLD, MEN OF RENOWN. - GENESIS 6:4 It has been months since John Carter's estranged brother, Henry, has gone missing. When last heard from, he was sailing off to Bermuda in search of an author whose books deal with the esoteric traditions of past ages. Reluctantly, John joins Henry's old Special Forces Teammates on a trip to Bermuda, hoping to discover the truth behind Henry's disappearance. But not all is as it seems in Bermuda, and the puzzle that awaits John on the small island paradise will prove to be more sinister than anything the world has seen in a very long time. As the fingers of an ancient evil seek to draw him into another world - a world where all of Hell is trying to break loose - John must confront the truth of his own past...and pray that he might survive its revelation... ...that the world might survive its revelation. Described as "Dan Brown meets Lost meets Left Behind," Progeny takes the reader through the heart of the Bermuda Triangle and drops them in a world where biblical legends and ancient mythologies - the similarities of which Hopkins "describes with academic dexterity" - reign terrifyingly supreme. Buckle up! Progeny is "equal parts religious thriller and action-packed roller coaster ride!"

But can he and Daniel meet up with the others in time? Or will the island's new (or perhaps much, much older) inhabitants prove to be just another move on a multidimensional chessboard over which the game to free Abaddon has been playing out across the ages? An epic showdown between the forces of Light and Darkness will not only determine the fate of the island and all those trapped on it but could also set the course for all of mankind in this wild, action-packed final installment of the Progeny trilogy.

Sources, Effects and Risks of Ionizing Radiation, United Nations Scientific Committee on the Effects of Atomic Radiation (UNSCEAR) 2016 Report by United Nations Scientific Committee on the Effects of Atomic Radiation (UNSCEAR) Book Resume:

This report assesses the levels and effects of exposure to ionizing radiation. Scientific findings underpin radiation risk evaluation and international protection standards. This report comprises a report with two underpinning scientific annexes. The first annex recapitulates and clarifies the philosophy of science as well as the scientific knowledge for attributing observed health effects in individuals and populations to radiation exposure, and distinguishes between that and inferring risk to individuals and populations from an exposure. The second annex reviews the latest thinking and approaches to quantifying the uncertainties in assessments of risk from radiation exposure, and illustrates these approaches with application to examples that are highly pertinent to radiation protection.

The Universe of Oz by Kevin K. Durand,Mary K. Leigh Book Resume:

The Wizard of Oz has captured the imagination of the public since publication of L. Frank Baum's first book of the series in 1900. Oz has shaped the way we read children's literature, view motion pictures and experience musicals. Oz has captured the scholarly imagination as well. The seventeen essays in this book address numerous questions of the boundaries between literature, film, and stage--and these have become essential to Oz scholarship. Together the essays explore the ways in which Oz tells us much about ourselves, our society, and our journeys.

Bluebeard Gothic by Heta Pyrhönen Book Resume:

'Bluebeard,' the tale of a sadistic husband who murders his wives and locks away their bodies, has inspired hundreds of adaptations since it first appeared in 1697. In Bluebeard Gothic, Heta Pyrhönen argues that Charlotte Brontë's 1847 classic Jane Eyre can be seen as one such adaptation, and that although critics have been slow to realize the connection, authors rewriting Brontë's novel have either intuitively or intentionally seized on it. Pyrhönen begins by establishing that the story of Jane Eyre is intermingled with the 'Bluebeard' tale, as young Jane moves between households, each dominated by its own Bluebeard figure. She then considers rewritings of Jane Eyre, such as Jean Rhys' Wide Sargasso Sea (1966) and Diane Setterfield's The Thirteenth Tale (2006), to examine how novelists have interpreted the status and meaning of 'Bluebeard' in Brontë's novel. Using psychoanalysis as the primary model of textual analysis, Bluebeard Gothic focuses on the conjunction of religion, sacrifice, and scapegoating to provide an original interpretation of a canonical and frequently-studied text.

Essential Fungal Genetics by David Moore,LilyAnn Novak Frazer Book Resume:

Most genetics textbooks deal adequately with plant and animal genetics, but tend to neglect fungi. The authors have produced a book that will compensate for this imbalance. This book discusses the genetics of fungi in a way that is attractive and challenging, succinct yet comprehensive, sensitive to commercial and applied aspects, yet also theoretical, dealing with their genetics from molecules to individuals to population. This short text will be an ideal supplement to the established basic genetics texts or can be used as the sole text for an advanced course devoted to fungal genetics.
