Lesley quickly realised that if she and Sophie, ‘through ignorance and naivety’ missed the signs, then so could many others.

Ivanhoe A Romance

Ivanhoe /ˈaɪvənˌhoʊ/ is a historical novel by Sir Walter Scott, first published in 1819 (all first editions carry the date of 1820, however, it was released at the end of December 1819) in three volumes and subtitled A Romance. At the time it was written it represented a shift by Scott away from fairly realistic novels set in Scotland in the comparatively recent past, to a somewhat fanciful depiction of medieval England. It has proved to be one of the best known and most influential of Scott's novels.Ivanhoe is set in 12th-century England, with colourful descriptions of a tournament, outlaws, a witch trial and divisions between Jews and Christians. It has been credited for increasing interest in romance and medievalism; John Henry Newman claimed Scott "had first turned men's minds in the direction of the Middle Ages", while Carlyle and Ruskin made similar assertions of Scott's overwhelming influence over the revival, based primarily on the publication of this novel. It has also had an important influence on popular perceptions of  Richard the Lionheart, King John, and Robin Hood. Wikipedia.

McALISTER'S WAY - FREE Serialisation vol. 02 (The McAlister Line)

MCALISTER’S WAY FREE Weekly Serialisation Vol. 02 – Chapters 2 and 3A Young Adult Action and Adventure storyDanny gets into big trouble in Chapters 2 & 3. I’m not going to give you a synopsis, you can download it for FREE and read it for yourselves. However, a couple of things inspired parts of these chapters.Chapter 2My RAAF (Royal Australian Air Force) buddy, Wing Commander ‘Trackless’ Millsom, restored a 1940s Buick from a bare chassis and it was the inspiration for the get-away car in this chapter. I remember the floor in Trackless’ two spare bedrooms covered with chrome-plate parts for ages. His missus, Cherril, was very patient.Chapter 3Burning sugar-cane prior to harvest no longer occurs in Australia, but I’ve stood next to a cane-fire south of Townsville and it’s an awesome experience. The noise, heat and flames are truly daunting. I flew passenger jets up and down Eastern Australia and the cane-fires were a spectacular sight at night. The setting for this chapter came from those images.Richard Marman, Author==============KEYWORDS/TAGS: McAlister’s Way, action, adventure, Zach, Danny, military, helicopters, choppers, soldiers, airmen, boarding school, priests, child abuse, attack, New South Wales, Australia, Sydney, Merimbula, plane, flight, fly, Young Adult, YA, explore, discover, , altar, Arty, Brisbane, Buick, cane-cutting, car, chapel, Colin, Danny, Desmond, disappear, embankment, freight, Gertrude, Giovanni, Gulf of Carpentaria, Lenny, Mackay, Monsignor, night, Noemi, Northern Rattler, plantation, police, railway, Ricci, river, Rockhampton, School, Signor, Sister, snakes, St. Ursicinus, Statue, sugar cane, town, train, water

So when he sends Scope and several other rat runners—young outlaws who evade detection by traveling through the city’s Voids—to track down one of Easy’s old enemies, they know they have no choice.

MCALISTER’S WAY FREE Weekly SerialisationVolume 7 Chapters 12 — 13A Young Adult Action and Adventure Story for Baby BoomersChapter 12The first time I flew to New Guinea as a Hercules C-130 co-pilot I was pretty excited, anticipating the spectacular views. It was pouring with rain when we landed at Port Moresby to refuel. We flew to Lae in cloud and spent the night there. The weather was the same on the return flight so I didn’t get to see at thing. Fortunately I often flew to PNG and got to see the mountains on many other occasions.Chapter 13I have fond memories of visiting Goroka, Papua New Guinea. We always brought back coffee which was in great demand at the RAAF Base in Richmond NSW. Although right on the equator, New Guinea Highland towns like Goroka and Mt. Hagen were over 1,500 metres / 4,920 feet above sea level and about 5 degrees cooler than Port Moresby — about 25°C all year round.Richard Marman, Author, Sunshine Coast, Australia==============DOWNLOAD LINKSFORMATS: ePub, Kindle & PDFFor the FREE DOWNLOADS of Vols 1 through 6, go to https://www.facebook.com/McAlistersAdventures/==============KEYWORDS/TAGS: McAlister’s Way, action, adventure, Zach, military, helicopters, choppers, DC3, Dakota, Gooney Bird, soldiers, airmen, attack, New South Wales, Australia, Sydney, Merimbula, plane, flight, fly, Young Adult, YA, explore, discover, abroad, Angela, action, adventure, Danny, MIA, Missing In Action, Japanese surrender, WWII, war, WW2, Tropic of Capricorn, Vietnam, Korea, , air, , airborne, airspeed, aviation, canoes, cockpit, coffee, control, couple, engines, fly, found, gold, Goose, Goroka, Guinea, Holyman, hull, Jeep, Jim, jungle, lightning, Montgomery, Monty, mountains, native, paddlers, people, plane, police, pretty, raced, rain, river, roaring, screamed, speed, stop, straight, surface, surged, take-off, Taylor, throttles, time, upriver, valley, village, villagers, warriors, water, Yerima

White Butterflies: A Poetry Book

A poetry book about overcoming depression. Each chapter with different stages and emotions.Luca Sacco the author of the Clock Work Projects says:"Isabel's poetry collection is a difficult read, and this is precisely the reason why it is so effective. It is difficult because the texts act as a journey, a trip to the dark crevasses of the reader's soul; a difficult to search these crevasses with an honest gaze, yet this is what Isabel's poetry forces us to do.The poetry is enthralling in a dark and beautiful manner, since despite the terrifying reflections it incites it still compels the reader to plunge further into its depths. The organization of the text into chapters of varying lengths and topics is suprising and effective: each section seems to peel back one layer of exterior and leave us continually more exposed. The feelings expressed throughout the chapters also correspond somewhat to the stages of grief, followed by, of course, the stages of rebuilding.Rarely have I seen a text that pulls the reader in from all sides with such fury, attacking us in our very heart, and yet through that same attack gives us strength, inspiration and, by the end of the last poem, a brilliant paragon of insurmountable hope."

Collects Fantastic Four (1961) #232-240.It was the world's greatest comic magazine. Again. Not since the days of Stan Lee and Jack Kirby, the trailblazers of the very mythology known as the Marvel Universe, had someone so perfectly captured the intense mood, cosmic style and classic sense of adventure of Marvel's first family of heroes - the Fantastic Four. Writer. Penciler. Inker. Visionary. John Byrne took these characters, whose powers resulted from each of them being bathed in cosmic rays during a flight into space, and launched them into realms where few creators before this had dared to go...

«Въ самый разгаръ «фельетонистической эпохи» и – единовременно – «ариманическаго грѣхопаденія», въ столѣтіе Революціи кровяной, похоронившей на долгое время идеализмъ и съ успѣхомъ положившей во прахъ всё высокое, всё элитарное, я пожелалъ возродить на началахъ новыхъ журналъ символистскаго толка дореволюціоннаго образца, журналъ для немногихъ, ничего общаго не имѣющій со «штемпелеванной культурой»; журналъ, зачинаемый вѣяніями Серебрянаго вѣка - послѣдней творчески цвѣтущей эпохой русской словесности и подлинной интеллектуальной культуры. Альманахъ - всецѣло модернистскаго толка и по преимуществу литературно-художественно-философской направленности; онъ воплощаетъ мысль не въ застывшихъ и косныхъ ея формахъ, но въ формахъ активныхъ и преобразующихъ. Традиція, по одному мѣткому высказыванію, есть передача огня, и культура подлинная прорастаетъ не въ каталогизаторской дѣятельности (вѣрнѣе, попросту: пустодѣйствѣ) современной гуманитарной науки (скажемъ, въ пустопорожней дѣятельности институтовъ философіи), которая по большей части есть не что иное, какъ обреченное на забвеніе комментаторство, изначально мертвое, не въ дѣятельности нашихъ традиціоналистовъ, что безъ традиціи, фундаменталистовъ, что безъ фундамента, равно и не въ новодельности постмодерна, - но въ живыхъ словахъ живыхъ, творчески продолжающихъ тѣ или иныя культурныя традиціи. – Творить, а не вторить (какъ комментаторы), быть, а не имѣть (въ смыслѣ Фромма). Рѣчь идетъ объ образцахъ высокаго слова, ничего общаго не имѣющихъ съ беллетристикой и фельетономъ, этими порожденіями мастеровъ общедоступнаго, но родственныхъ всему высокому – отъ миѳическаго Орфея до послѣднихъ, единичныхъ образцовъ высокаго въ XX-XXI вв. Сказанное означаетъ: не философія (нынѣ лишенная эстетическаго измѣренія), не наука (не вѣдающая истоковъ собственныхъ), не искусство и не поэзія (лишенныя философскихъ глубинъ, слишкомъ мелкія и неглубокія часто, слишкомъ часто), не мистика (забывшая о трезвой осмотрительности), - но синтезъ: философіи, науки, поэзіи, искусства, мистики».
