This is Nick Armbrister's second volume of poetry, and follows his first book, Fade into Focus, Focus into Fade, released in 2006-bringing the number of poems he has published to over 150. Again, his subject matter varies as does his mood and outlook. Nick likes to write simple poems that convey his emotions and thoughts first hand, to be shared with his readers and audience. Music, life, aviation, gothic culture, and more besides, inspire his poetry in which he dares to bare his heart, soul and mind-in brittle, startling poems that touch the raw nerves of life, yet a life that throbs with positive energy. As one reviewer put it, he "sees the dark underbelly of the world but counterpoints it with hope and warnings about falling into the same traps" (D. J. Turner in The Supplement).

A New York Times Book Review Editors’ Choice “Fast-paced [and] riveting . . . Stone is one of our transcendently great American novelists.” — Madison Smartt Bell “Brilliant.” — Washington Post At an elite college in a once-decaying New England city, Steven Brookman has come to a decision. A brilliant but careless professor, he has determined that for the sake of his marriage, and his soul, he must end his relationship with Maud Stack, his electrifying student, whose papers are always late yet always incandescent. But Maud is a young woman whose passions are not easily curtailed, and their union will quickly yield tragic and far-reaching consequences. Death of the Black-Haired Girl is an irresistible tale of infidelity, accountability, the allure of youth, the promise of absolution, and the notion that madness is everywhere, in plain sight. “At once unsparing and generous in its vision of humanity, by turns propulsive and poetic, Death of the Black-Haired Girl is wise, brave, and beautifully just.” — Boston Globe “Unsettling and tightly wrought—and a worthy cautionary tale about capital-C consequences.” — Entertainment Weekly “A taut, forceful, lacerating novel, full of beautifully crafted language.” — Los Angeles Review of Books

The astonishing life of Ned Kelly's mother While we know much about the iconic outlaw Ned Kelly, his mother Ellen Kelly has been largely overlooked by Australian writers and historians -- until now, with this vivid and compelling portrait by Grantlee Kieza, one of Australia's most popular biographers. When Ned Kelly's mother, Ellen, arrived in Melbourne in 1841 aged nine, British convict ships were still dumping their unhappy cargo in what was then known as the colony of New South Wales. By the time she died aged ninety-one in 1923, having outlived seven of her twelve children, motor cars plied the highway near her bush home north of Melbourne, and Australia was a modern, sovereign nation. Like so many pioneering women, Ellen, the wife of a convict, led a life of great hardship. Born in Ireland during a time of entrenched poverty and sectarian violence, she was a mother of seven when her husband died after months in a police lock-up. She lived through famine and drought, watched her babies die, listened through the prison wall while her eldest son was hanged and saw the charred remains of another of her children who'd died in a shoot-out with police. One son became Australia's most infamous (and ultimately most celebrated) outlaw; another became a highly decorated policeman, an honorary member of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police and a worldwide star on the rodeo circuit. Through it all, 'the notorious Mrs Kelly', as she was dubbed by Victoria's Assistant Police Commissioner, survived as best she could, like so many pioneering women of the time. By bestselling biographer Grantlee Kieza, Mrs Kelly is the astonishing story of one of Australia's most notorious women and her wild family, but it's also the story of the making of Australia, from struggling colony and backwater to modern nation.

When the coincidental death of his mother further burdens him with a guilt complex the size of Detroit, he leaves home with his pals for California but winds up hitchhiking back across the country alone, searching for peace of mind in a world that seems to be conspiring against him. Only the vague memories of a girl and his formerly happy existence, keeps him putting one foot in front of the other despite his mental malady.

Artaria This is the story of Lars, the warrior and hero for throughout the ages. His story begins when he is still, admittedly, an unknown and unimportant boy. On a predestined night the very foundation of his life is broken when two armored warriors arrive on dark steeds to capture him. His home in the forest, the only one he has ever known, is burned to the ground and his grandfather, the only family he has ever known, is murdered. Thus Lars embarks on an adventure across a diverse and fantastical landscape of drakes and wyverns, and of warring nations and errant knights. He will cross from adolescence into manhood. He will meet a prince turned vagabond and the spoiled son of a tribal chief. In the midst of battle he will befriend a gruff swordsman and will be reunited with other friends thought long abandoned. Unfortunately for Lars and for those he will come to know, the adventure does not stop there. An ancient enemy From Beyond the Grave has crossed over to the reality of the living. A mysterious man of impossible years has come to fight on the side of light and life but his means to victory may be so dark and ruthless that Lars does not know if he too is an enemy. And a woman from another world and another era will cross the very stars to find him. Epic in its scope and spanning worlds and history, the Black Phoenix Cycle will take you to the nightfall of an interstellar civilization, and back through time to its pinnacle. And through all the millennia, two enemies will play out a game where the barrier between the living and the dead is ruptured and those closest to them...regardless of love, loyalty, or sacrifice...are merely pawns. The Cycle begins...on Artaria.

"Ligeia" (/laɪˈdʒiːə/) is an early short story by American writer Edgar Allan Poe, first published in 1838. The story follows an unnamed narrator and his wife Ligeia, a beautiful and intelligent raven-haired woman. She falls ill, composes "The Conqueror Worm", and quotes lines attributed to Joseph Glanvill (which suggest that life is sustainable only through willpower) shortly before dying. After her death, the narrator marries the Lady Rowena. Rowena becomes ill and she dies as well. The distraught narrator stays with her body overnight and watches as Rowena slowly comes back from the dead – though she has transformed into Ligeia. The story may be the narrator's opium-induced hallucination and there is debate whether the story was a satire. After the story's first publication in The American Museum, it was heavily revised and reprinted throughout Poe's life.
