Anne Rice, creator of the Vampire Lestat, the Mayfair witches and the amazing worlds they inhabit, now gives us the first in a new series of novels linked together by the fledgling vampire David Talbot, who has set out to become a chronicler of his fellow Undead. The novel opens in present-day Paris in a crowded café, where David meets Pandora. She is two thousand years old, a Child of the Millennia, the first vampire ever made by the great Marius. David persuades her to tell the story of her life. Pandora begins, reluctantly at first and then with increasing passion, to recount her mesmerizing tale, which takes us through the ages, from Imperial Rome to eighteenth-century France to twentieth-century Paris and New Orleans. She carries us back to her mortal girlhood in the world of Caesar Augustus, a world chronicled by Ovid and Petronius. This is where Pandora meets and falls in love with the handsome, charismatic, lighthearted, still-mortal Marius. This is the Rome she is forced to flee in fear of assassination by conspirators plotting to take over the city. And we follow her to the exotic port of Antioch, where she is destined to be reunited with Marius, now immortal and haunted by his vampire nature, who will bestow on her the Dark Gift as they set out on the fraught and fantastic adventure of their two turbulent centuries together. Look for Anne Rice’s new book, Prince Lestat and the Realms of Atlantis, coming November 29, 2016.

“An imaginative and stunning tale of the perfect future threatened . . . a book of epic proportions not unlike Frank Herbert’s Dune or Isaac Asimov’s Foundation trilogy.”—SFRevu The year is 2380. The Intersolar Commonwealth, a sphere of stars, contains more than six hundred worlds interconnected by a web of transport “tunnels” known as wormholes. At the farthest edge of the Commonwealth, astronomer Dudley Bose observes the impossible: over one thousand light-years away, a star . . . disappears. Since the location is too distant to reach by wormhole, the Second Chance, a faster-than-light starship commanded by Wilson Kime, a five-times-rejuvenated ex-NASA pilot, is dispatched to learn what has occurred and whether it represents a threat. Opposed to the mission are the Guardians of Selfhood, led by Bradley Johansson. Shortly after the journey begins, Kime wonders if the crew of the Second Chance has been infiltrated. But soon enough he will have other worries. Halfway across the galaxy, something truly incredible is waiting: a deadly discovery whose unleashing will threaten to destroy the Commonwealth . . . and humanity itself. “Should be high on everyone’s reading list . . . You won’t be able to put it down.”—Nancy Pearl, NPR “Recommended . . . A large cast of characters, each with his own story, brings depth and variety to this far-future saga.”—Library Journal

Curiosity changed the course of mankind. Pandora was the first mortal woman and the first bride. Zeus gave Pandora a storage jar for a wedding gift which she of course opened. Who wouldn’t? It was a wedding gift, for crying out loud. The evil spirits trapped inside the jar were freed and have wreaked havoc on mankind ever since. Fast forward to today . . . Pandora Jones lives in a modern stone castle stuffed to the roofline with handmade boxes filled with the worries and troubles she collects each night. Trying to atone for her ancestress’ costly mistake leaves no room for friendship, let alone romance. Head God Zeus sends his handsome eldest son to set things right with Pandora, but neglects to tell him who, what, or why. That would take all the fun out of the game–and everyone knows the Olympic gods love their games.

Pandora Whalley is a haunted woman with a tragic past. For as long as she can remember, she has felt spirits around her, sometimes playful, sometimes spiteful, sometimes angry. But now, the spirits have become menacing and Pandora has become a recluse, trapped inside the house by something she cannot name. Something that is biding its time. Something that is preying on her soul. Nick van der Ryn is a parapsychologist who has stumbled onto the perfect haunted house—the Whalley Mansion. Orbs, ghosts, strange sounds, shadow people, an eerie mirror hung in the mansion's cavernous stairwell—this place has it all. But what fascinates Nick even more than the house is the woman who lives there. The one he can’t stop thinking about. The one who seems like she’s being consumed by the mansion even as he watches. Both Pandora and Nick will have to outwit the forces, both living and dead, that conspire to keep them apart—forces that want to keep Pandora from inheriting her birthright on her twenty-fifth birthday. Together, they must solve the mystery of Pandora's ancient family legacy, and survive, before they can truly understand the terrifying apparitions in Pandora's Mirror.

G.W. Pabst's 1929 silent classic Pandora's Box (Die Büchse der Pandora), stars Hollywood icon Louise Brooks as the enigmatic heroine whose erotic charms lead to disaster for the men drawn into her web. Despite failing commercially upon release, it has evolved into a cult film long after it should have been forgotten. Pandora's Box captivates audiences with its libidinous, violent story, and its mysterious heroine whose motivations, as well as whose guilt or innocence, are difficult to determine. It is a sophisticated adaptation of Frank Wedekind's Lulu plays, and indisputably Louise Brooks' finest performance on film. In her compelling study, Pamela Hutchinson traces Pandora's production history and the many contexts of its creation and afterlife, revisiting and challenging many assumptions made about the film, its lead character and its star. Analysing the film act by act, she explores the conflicted relationship between Brooks and the director G.W. Pabst, the film's historical contexts in Weimar Berlin, and its changing fortunes since its release.

So says a woman with an axe pressed to her neck, and the solution to the entire mystery of human existence clutched between her palms. Two weeks earlier, Kate Quinlan was just your average British expat with a PhD, working in Silicon Valley as an artificial-intelligence designer for ultra-violent video games, spending the evenings hanging out with her pet chimp – and wondering how something as weird as human consciousness could have evolved through mere Darwinian selection. But when a disconcertingly attractive behavioural geneticist and a hotshot cryptologist stroll into her life, she begins looking for answers in the backwaters of the human genome – the 97% written off as ‘junk DNA’. And when men in strange hats come looking for her hard drive, shooting first and never really asking any questions, she finds herself on the run – pursued by multiple squads of heavily-armed religious zealots, the Feds, and worse. All seek to obtain, or to suppress forever, the key to the revelatory stretch of DNA known as the Pandora Sequence. The outcome of their race to control this explosive secret will forever alter how humanity regards itself – that is, if anyone lives long enough to tell the tale.

It has been one of those days. You've worked like a Trojan, displaying titanic strength and stoic endurance to overcome the Herculean labours that have faced you in order to meet that deadline. We regularly employ classically-derived expressions in our everyday language, yet many of us have little understanding of the origin of these common phrases. But an incomplete classical education need no longer be your Achilles heel. Opening Pandora's Box offers a light-hearted yet fascinating look at the stories behind the expressions. For example, did you know that the phrase 'the face that launched a thousand ships' originates from the story of the kidnapping of Helen of Troy, but the actual line comes from a poem by Christopher Marlowe? Opening Pandora's Box provides a useful introduction to classical mythology as well as giving an insight into our language.

During Birmingham’s Civil Rights era, with racism and crime battling for prominence, pimp Blake McDaniel managed his business with brutal efficiency. Trapped in an endless downward cycle, McDaniels is confronted by the sins of his past— sins that are visited on his son. Torn between two father figures and his mother’s persistent dream, Tyson McDaniels struggles to make the right choices. His father is a drug addicted Vietnam veteran who transforms his racial anguish into living the life of a ruthless pimp. His stepfather, Vincent “Big Vince” Johnson, is a street-life late bloomer, a man who traded his assembly line job at Detroit’s General Motors for a roll of the street life dice. Lillian, his embittered mother, is caught between two vicious pimps—one she loves and one she hates. She is plunged into the very life she rejected—prostitution, drugs, and the need to escape a past of brutal racial hatred and a romantic disappointment too deep to forget. Trapped in Pandora’s Last Box explodes with deadly consequences—the inevitable clash between Blake and his bitter rivals, Big Dester and Death Wish, Blake’s imminent encounter with death and destruction, and the implications of his actions for the future of his son.

This monograph is the first comprehensive study of the design, application, and implementation of Pandora, a new parallel logic programming language. Pandora combines stream and-parallelism with don't-know non-determinism in a unified and efficient manner. As a result, it provides a programming paradigm of non-deterministic concurrent communicating processes, which opens up interesting application areas that cannot conveniently be expressed in existing logic programming languages. The author describes the use of Pandora for constraint programming, solving resource allocation problems, heuristic search, and distributed discrete event simulation. The final chapters describe in detail the implementation of Pandora on single- as well as multi-processor architectures. The volume is aimed at the community of logic programming students and professionals, as well as researchers and professionals in artificial intelligence. It will also be of great interest to researchers in programming language design and parallel processing.

Wizdom didn’t know dragons really existed. He’s never ridden a white woolly mammoth or flown on a griffin. He’s never known a real king or a princess or been friends with a goblin. Wizdom’s never seen elves that glow blue all the time. All he’s ever known are his adoptive mother and his aunt Kayden. One day he finds himself in a secret world, face to face with dragons and fire monsters. He meets an interesting girl, Pandora, who he learns is no ordinary girl, just as he is no ordinary boy. Wizdom soon finds himself on a magical journey full of secrets, sorcery, danger and evil. He fights many fierce battles and faces certain death as his quest leads him on an adventure like never before as he discovers his true identity...or does he? “In blending adventure with emotional growth...YA readers will delight in both the wit and gravity displayed by the two protagonists. The packed plot, myriad characters and classic fantasy tropes will keep younger readers engaged and inspired” – Kirkus Reviews

First published in 1992, this book evokes Pandora and Occam as metaphoric corner posts in an argument about language as discourse and in doing so, brings analytic philosophy to bear on issues of Continental philosophy, with attention to linguistic, semiological, and semiotic concerns. Instead of regarding meanings as guaranteed by definitions, the author argues that linguistic expressions are schemata directing us more or less loosely toward the activation of nonlinguistic sign systems. Ruthrof draws up a heuristic hierarchy of discourses, with literary expression at the top, descending through communication-reduced reference and speech acts to formal logic and digital communication at the bottom. The book offers multiple perspectives from which to review traditional theories of meaning, working from a wide variety of theorists, including Peirce, Frege, Husserl, Derrida, Lyotard, Davidson, and Searle. In Ruthrof’s analysis, Pandora and Occam illustrate the opposition between the suppressed rich materiality of culturally saturated discourse and the stark ideality of formal sign systems. This book will be of interest to those studying linguistics, literature and philosophy.
