Body Problems (Bookburners Season 4 Episode 1) by Max Gladstone,Margaret Dunlap,Brian Francis Slattery,Mur Lafferty,Andrea Phillips Book Resume:

This is the 1st episode in the fourth season of Bookburners, a 10-episode serial from Serial Box Publishing. This episode written by Max Gladstone. Supernatural meets The Da Vinci Code in a fast-paced, kickass character driven novel chock-full of magic, mystery, and mayhem, written collaboratively by a team of some of the best writers working in fantasy. Magic is real . . . and hungry. Everything in the Bookburners’ lives falls into two categories: Before London and After London. Before London, things were strange, sure, but After London . . . “strange” doesn’t even begin to describe it. Magic is everywhere—and the Bookburners can only be in one place at a time. Having cut ties with the Vatican, the members of the former Team Three are a little at a loss. Their old roles don’t feel right anymore; their old job seems almost quaint, considering how much magic flourishes in plain sight. But with the return of an old enemy, they find a renewed purpose. And this time, they know that the only thing they can depend on in this world is each other. Fans of Supernatural, The X-Files, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, and The Da Vinci Code will love this epic urban fantasy. Originally presented serially in 10 episodes, this edition contains all installments of Bookburners Season 4. This is a novel co-written by Max Gladstone, Brain Francis Slattery, Mur Lafferty, and Andrea Phillips. Praise for the Bookburners series: “Sheer enormous fun!” —Naomi Novik, author of the New York Times-bestselling Temeraire series "Bookburners is worth getting hooked on!" —Pop. Edit. Lit. blog “Recommended for those looking for a breezy, entertaining and exciting fantasy read.” —Booklist "As much fun as binge-watching a full season of a Showtime series." —Publishers Weekly “Highly recommended for urban fantasy fans (think: Cassandra Clare's City of Bones combined with the Indiana Jones movies).” —School Library Journal

Instructional Practices by D. L. Forrest-Pressley,G. E. MacKinnon,T. Gary Waller Book Resume:

Metacognition, Cognition, and Human Performance, Volume 2: Instructional Practices is a collection of papers that deals with applied settings that develop and test instructional programs in the field of education. The book discusses some insights in understanding the processes involved in writing and reading. The text defines metacognition — as a mental function and the directing of this function — and reading, as well as the structure of narratives. One paper proposes a model for cognitive monitoring and early reading by developing for children three knowledge domains: function of print, form of print, and conventions of print or metacognitive constructs. Other papers analyze metacognition, instruction, the role of questioning activities, as well as the connection between metacognition and learning disabilities. One author evaluates a different perspective whether attention-related difficulties are a normal development in a young child or a disability in the older child. This author also explains meta-attention pertaining to task solving, selective attention to other stimuli, and visual search of the surrounding or for a target object. One research shows that methodologies designed to induce underachieving children to regulate their own academic behavior can improve their performance. The text can prove useful to child psychologists, behavioral scientists, and students and professors in child education.

Evolution on British Television and Radio by Alexander Hall Book Resume:

This book charts the history of how biological evolution has been depicted on British television and radio, from the first radio broadcast on evolution in 1925 through to the 150th anniversary of Charles Darwin’s Origin of the Species in 2009. Going beyond science documentaries, the chapters deal with a broad range of broadcasting content to explore evolutionary themes in radio dramas, educational content, and science fiction shows like Doctor Who. The book makes the case that the dominant use in science broadcasting of the ‘evolutionary epic’, a narrative based on a progressive vision of scientific endeavour, is part of the wider development of a standardised way of speaking about science in society during the 20th century. In covering the diverse range of approaches to depicting evolution used in British productions, the book demonstrates how their success had a global influence on the genres and formats of science broadcasting used today.

The Force of Family by Cara Krmpotich Book Resume:

Over the course of more than a decade, the Haida Nation triumphantly returned home all known Haida ancestral remains from North American museums. In the summer of 2010, they achieved what many thought was impossible: the repatriation of ancestral remains from the Pitt Rivers Museum at the University of Oxford. The Force of Family is an ethnography of those efforts to repatriate ancestral remains from museums around the world. Focusing on objects made to honour the ancestors, Cara Krmpotich explores how memory, objects, and kinship connect and form a cultural archive. Since the mid-1990s, Haidas have been making button blankets and bentwood boxes with clan crest designs, hosting feasts for hundreds of people, and composing and choreographing new songs and dances in the service of repatriation. The book comes to understand how shared experiences of sewing, weaving, dancing, cooking and feasting lead to the Haida notion of “respect,” the creation of kinship and collective memory, and the production of a cultural archive.

But can they fight the inevitable cure for sadness that rushes steadily closer? In the action-packed sequel to Fury, everything Josi believes about herself will be challenged. Haunted by atrocities and betrayals, she must find the strength to trust again, and decide how far she is willing to go to fight the inevitable.

PALE MOON, Season 1, Episode 7: FEARLESS by R T Green Book Resume:

“Loving someone isn’t supposed to be this hard. Neither is killing them.” Pale Moon is the heart-wrenching story of two lost souls, who didn’t believe they could experience true love. Of two people, so far apart they are in different galaxies, who somehow stumble into discovering each other’s hearts. It’s a dangerous, unstoppable roller-coaster of a journey. An MI6 shadow assassin and a beautiful terrorist are thrown together in the midst of a terror threat, the like of which London has never seen before. Neither of them could know what horrors lie in wait, or that their first meeting is just the beginning of an epic fight for survival. For them, and everyone else. Pale Moon is brought to you in two seasons of eight novella episodes each, telling Gerard and Zana’s incredible story… two lost souls who must save each other, in order to save millions of lives. This is season 1, episode 7. It’s damage limitation for Gerard and the team as they discover the threat is far from over. And with a new, even more insidious horror in the mix, he is forced to be the worm on the hook, even though for him there is more than one reason it is sinking into treacherous waters. Read about Pale Moon, and the concept, at rtgreen.net. A note from Richard – Pale Moon is a completely re-edited and restructured version of the original series (and its alternative ‘sister’ series, Red Mist), so although totally remodelled for 2021, the bones of the stories are the same. If you’ve read Pale Moon or Red Mist before, then basically you already know the story! We wouldn’t want you to read the same story twice (unless you really want to!) We’ve priced the novella-length episodes sensibly. There are two seasons, with eight episodes in each one. Each episode is somewhere either side of 25,000 words long, and to get the best from the series, they really should be read in order. Like a TV serial, they are chronological. Those of you familiar with the RTG brand know we’re always up for different! And for sure this is a slightly different style of storytelling. We hope Gerard and Zana’s heart-stopping journey will keep you travelling with them to the end. Pale Moon is romantic suspense at its finest, with espionage and a little sci-fi blended together to bring you a story of courage, danger, and the power of true love. Enjoy!

Girlhood on Disney Channel by Morgan Genevieve Blue Book Resume:

Since the early 2000s, Disney Channel has been dominated by original live-action programming popular among tween girls. The shows’ successes rely not only on their popularity among girl audiences, but also on the development of star personae by girl performers, such as Raven-Symoné, Miley Cyrus, and Selena Gomez. In addition, these programs and their performers have spawned lucrative media and merchandising franchises for the Walt Disney Company. This book includes analyses of this Disney Channel programming, as well as Disney corporate reports and executive statements, together with Disney Channel stars’ performances, promotional appearances, media production, philanthropic efforts, and entrepreneurism. Analyzing these texts, performances, activities, and personae, it considers the ways in which they reproduce celebrity, visibility, and feminine performativity as central to successful twenty-first century girlhood.

Periphery Orion And The Splintertime - Episode 1 by Christopher Bulis Book Resume:

Up until the morning of the day that will become the very worst of her life, High School student Periphery Orion had thought the only unusual things about her were her name and her eccentric twin aunts who had brought her up. Now, shockingly, she discovers she has the ability to remember what other people do not. In the middle of Wychford Cathedral in broad daylight she sees a monstrous ghostlike creature snatch two people out of existence before her eyes and those of over two dozen classmates and yet a moment later none of them remember it happening. Nor do they seem to realize that charismatic Father Auric Polter of the mysterious General Ecumenical Interfaith Studies Taskforce, and his retinue of hooded silent monks, is behind these shocking, impossible events. But if she is the only person who remembers anything has happened, and the evidence vanishes before her eyes, what can she do? And then the day begins to get really strange…

Fated Love by Sandy Raven Book Resume:

Lady Adina, Countess Rathcavan, thinks it’s time her grandson took a bride, not just because there was no heir to the crumbling pile of stones that was her home, but since the explosion at his mill, their finances were strapped even further. The young man needed an heiress, but he had only one lady in mind, and she was as elusive as the sun in winter. With Adina’s seventy-fifth birthday approaching, she decided to help her grandson by bringing his chosen lass, Lady Isabel Halden, to Rathcavan. And, since the lady was friends with her great-niece, Penelope, Adina could reunite her favorite relative with the man who unwillingly broke her heart when he was sent on a mission to Afghanistan. Lastly, if she could match that soft-hearted giant, Eamon Gowrey with the statuesque Brightman lass, Adina would be extra pleased with herself. All three ladies come from good families and had more than sufficient dowries. But more importantly for Adina, they would appreciate and continue her stud long after she was gone. A month-long house party with a ball, a fox hunt, moonlit walks in the garden and more, all bring the three couples closer. After an accident almost takes the life of one heiress, the three ladies vow to do everything in their power to stay together always. And the way they wished to start this new life was by sharing their wedding day with each other—if they can convince their new husbands of it!

An Unkindness Of Ravens by Ruth Rendell Book Resume:

The thirteenth book to feature the classic crime-solving detective, Chief Inspector Wexford. The raven: not a particularly predatory bird, but far from soft and submissive, adopted as the symbol of a militant feminist group... Detective Chief Inspector Wexford thought he was merely doing a neighbourly good deed when he agreed to talk to Joy Williams about her missing husband. He certainly didn't expect to be investigating a most unusual homicide. Rodney Williams was neither handsome nor wealthy – but he had an unerring eye for a pretty girl and when he disappeared and two other men were later attacked by a young woman, Wexford couldn't help wondering if there was a connection. If there wasn't, where was Rodney Williams and why had he vanished? He had committed no crime – apart from telling his wife the occasional lie...

In the Company of Crows and Ravens by John M. Marzluff,Tony Angell Book Resume:

“Crows and people share similar traits and social strategies. To a surprising extent, to know the crow is to know ourselves.”—from the Preface From the cave walls at Lascaux to the last painting by Van Gogh, from the works of Shakespeare to those of Mark Twain, there is clear evidence that crows and ravens influence human culture. Yet this influence is not unidirectional, say the authors of this fascinating book: people profoundly influence crow culture, ecology, and evolution as well. John Marzluff and Tony Angell examine the often surprising ways that crows and humans interact. The authors contend that those interactions reflect a process of “cultural coevolution.” They offer a challenging new view of the human-crow dynamic—a view that may change our thinking not only about crows but also about ourselves. Featuring more than 100 original drawings, the book takes a close look at the influences people have had on the lives of crows throughout history and at the significant ways crows have altered human lives. In the Company of Crows and Ravens illuminates the entwined histories of crows and people and concludes with an intriguing discussion of the crow-human relationship and how our attitudes toward crows may affect our cultural trajectory.

But he is unprepared for the state in which he finds Lady Lydia Farrell. Shocked into action, Thomas vows to help free Lydia by appealing to the custodian of her affairs, Mr. Nicholas Lupton. But when Silkstone arrives at the Boughton Estate to speak to Lupton, he finds that another form of madness has taken over the village . . . Sweeping changes to the Boughton Estate threaten to leave many villagers, who are rightfully angry, destitute. After a single shot rings out and a man dies in the woods, it appears that the desperate villagers have turned to murder to avenge their cause. But for Thomas, a post-mortem on the victim raises more questions than answers. Although he manages to save an innocent man from the gallows, a second murder warns him of his potentially fatal situation. Soon he discovers a conspiracy far more sinister than anything he has ever faced. But who it leads to is the last person he suspects . . . Praise for The Devil’s Breath “Excellent . . .

If you could steal things from dreams, what would you take? Ronan Lynch has secrets. Some he keeps from others. Some he keeps from himself. One secret: Ronan can bring things out of his dreams. And sometimes he’s not the only one who wants those things. Ronan is one of the raven boys — a group of friends, practically brothers, searching for a dead king named Glendower, who they think is hidden somewhere in the hills by their elite private school, Aglionby Academy. The path to Glendower has long lived as an undercurrent beneath town. But now, like Ronan’s secrets, it is beginning to rise to the surface — changing everything in its wake. Of THE RAVEN BOYS, ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY wrote, “Maggie Stiefvater’s can’t-put-it-down paranormal adventure will leave you clamoring for book two.” Now the second book is here, with the same wild imagination, dark romance, and heart-stopping twists that only Maggie Stiefvater can conjure.

Ravens in Winter by Bernd Heinrich Book Resume:

“One of the most interesting discoveries I’ve seen in animal sociobiology in years.” —E.O. Wilson Why do ravens, generally understood to be solitary creatures, share food between each other during winter? On the surface, there didn’t appear to be any biological or evolutionary imperative behind the raven’s willingness to share. The more Bernd Heinrich observed their habits, the more odd the bird’s behavior became. What started as mere curiosity turned into an impassioned research project, and Ravens In Winter, the first research of its kind, explores the fascinating biological puzzle of the raven’s rather unconventional social habits. “Bernd Heinrich is no ordinary biologist. He’s the sort who combines formidable scientific rigor with a sense of irony and an unslaked, boyish enthusiasm for his subject, and who even at his current professorial age seems to do a lot of tree climbing in the line of research.” —David Quammen, The New York Times

Shortlisted for the Scotiabank Giller Prize: With striking originality and precision, Eden Robinson, the author of the classic Monkey Beach and winner of the Writers’ Trust of Canada Fellowship, blends humour with heartbreak in this compelling coming-of-age novel. Everyday teen existence meets indigenous beliefs, crazy family dynamics, and cannibalistic river otters . . . The exciting first novel in her trickster trilogy. Everyone knows a guy like Jared: the burnout kid in high school who sells weed cookies and has a scary mom who's often wasted and wielding some kind of weapon. Jared does smoke and drink too much, and he does make the best cookies in town, and his mom is a mess, but he's also a kid who has an immense capacity for compassion and an impulse to watch over people more than twice his age, and he can't rely on anyone for consistent love and support, except for his flatulent pit bull, Baby Killer (he calls her Baby)--and now she's dead. Jared can't count on his mom to stay sober and stick around to take care of him. He can't rely on his dad to pay the bills and support his new wife and step-daughter. Jared is only sixteen but feels like he is the one who must stabilize his family's life, even look out for his elderly neighbours. But he struggles to keep everything afloat...and sometimes he blacks out. And he puzzles over why his maternal grandmother has never liked him, why she says he's the son of a trickster, that he isn't human. Mind you, ravens speak to him--even when he's not stoned. You think you know Jared, but you don't.

Gardens of the Moon by Steven Erikson Book Resume:

Vast legions of gods, mages, humans, dragons and all manner of creatures play out the fate of the Malazan Empire in this first book in a major epic fantasy series The Malazan Empire simmers with discontent, bled dry by interminable warfare, bitter infighting and bloody confrontations with the formidable Anomander Rake and his Tiste Andii, ancient and implacable sorcerers. Even the imperial legions, long inured to the bloodshed, yearn for some respite. Yet Empress Laseen's rule remains absolute, enforced by her dread Claw assassins. For Sergeant Whiskeyjack and his squad of Bridgeburners, and for Tattersail, surviving cadre mage of the Second Legion, the aftermath of the siege of Pale should have been a time to mourn the many dead. But Darujhistan, last of the Free Cities of Genabackis, yet holds out. It is to this ancient citadel that Laseen turns her predatory gaze. However, it would appear that the Empire is not alone in this great game. Sinister, shadowbound forces are gathering as the gods themselves prepare to play their hand... Conceived and written on a panoramic scale, Gardens of the Moon is epic fantasy of the highest order--an enthralling adventure by an outstanding new voice.
