Now in one volume, the Godmaker Trilogy. Rudy Sullivan must follow the Godmakers if he wishes to protect his own life and the lives of those he loves. He has one ace-in-the-hole: the last play ever written by the old playwright, who might be a suicide or might have been murdered. He trails the two old men who claim they created all the gods as they take him from Italy to California to the North Pole, finally ending in the panhandle of Nebraska where an odd monument and a sleepy town somehow figure in the secret of the universe. The old man who claims to be Paul of Tarsus and travels in a creaky old plane with his friend, John the Baptist, has a knack for turning Rudy's life upside down, and in the process, conjuring up demons and danger. Rudy finds it hard to believe in Paul, but he finds it harder not to follow him. What he learns and sees on his journey will lead him to question not just his sanity, but his faith in God.

Above them the great rock bulged out like a too clever forehead, too clever for anything to grow upon, too smooth for anyone to climb... It might be the only place on earth which is so high and difficult to get to, that people can't reach it. When Sangita the Ranee of Bidwar is caught up in a scandal, her husband banishes her from the palace and forbids access to their young son, Anwar. She lives miserably as a disgraced woman, praying to Ganesh for Anwar to be taken from her husband, so that he would know her suffering. Then, Anwar goes missing. In a hill-tribe far above the palace, on land impenetrable to man, the young males are dying. When they come across a Coarseone – a child from civilisation below - they use him to create a new life: their new Maw, their king. Two generations later Sangita's granddaughter, Devi, heads to the family's derelict hill palace to research the mountain's minerals, with instructions to look out for the apocryphal Ama stone. At the same time, a tree-felling company finally reach the mountain top where they discover the hill- tribe. Maw, now a young man, is injured trying to stop the lumberjacks driving them off the land. He is brought to Devi, who takes him down to the palace where the family care for and educate him, but he always has a look in his eyes that no one understands. Will his tribe think their king has deserted them, or do they suspect he is playing a longer game... a life-long game to avenge his tribe their suffering? Tikkipala is a hypnotic tale of love and preservation at a time of fading empires. Meticulously and soulfully written, Banerji takes the heart on a journey through mystical cultures and spiritual practices, to a world where anything is possible if love is strong enough.

Architecture and Armed Conflict is the first multi-authored scholarly book to address this theme from a comparative, interdisciplinary perspective. By bringing together specialists from a range of relevant fields, and with knowledge of case studies across time and space, it provides the first synthetic body of research on the complex, multifaceted subject of architectural destruction in the context of conflict. The book addresses several specific research questions: How has the destruction of buildings and landscapes figured in recent historical conflicts, and how have people and states responded to it? How has the destruction of architecture been represented in different historical periods, and to what ends? What are the relationships between the destruction of architecture and the destruction of art, particularly iconoclasm? If architectural destruction is a salient feature of many armed conflicts, how does it feature in post-conflict environments? What are the relationships between architectural destruction and processes of restoration, recreation or replacement? Considering multiple conflicts, multiple time periods, and multiple locations allows this international cohort of authors to provide an essential primer for this crucial topic.

“An eminent Polish physician reflects on his lifetime practice of medicine . . . A profound celebration of the human spirit.” —Kirkus Reviews There is a grand tradition of physicians who are also great writers and philosophers. When his first book, Catharsis, was published in English, critics from Seamus Heaney to Czeslaw Milosz stood to applaud. Now Andrzej Szczeklik has followed with an ever deeper and more accomplished book. It has become unfortunately rare for a scientist or doctor to find his grounding in a broad understanding of literature and the humanities. But in Kore, the author insists that only with a curiosity thoroughly at home in both worlds can one expect to discover what we should mean about sickness and about the soul. No tedious academic, Szczeklik writes with the grace of a poet and the ease of a fine storyteller. Anecdotes drawn from a personal immersion in art, music, and literature are woven with reports on experimental medicine and daily clinical experience. From DNA and the re–creation of the Spanish Flu virus, to contemporary research in genetics, cancer, neurology, and the AIDS virus, from Symptoms and Shadows, to Dying and Death, to Enchantment of Love, every chapter of this book is alive and engaging. The result is a life–affirming work of science, philosophy, art, and spirituality. “No medical experience necessary: readers need only approach with a love of the human body and an understanding of how it relates to emotion and story . . . Readers may find it difficult to keep up, but few are likely to forget this book.” —Publishers Weekly

When she decides to ask the witch how to bring her cat home, the spell she casts has some unexpected consequences.

She has little choice but to trust them once they carry her past the point where she can find her own way home, but by the time she returns, she will not be the same child that began the journey.
