Diary of a Zombie


Sergi Llauger - 2010
    The eternal promise of leaving as a peaceful spirit was never fulfilled; instead, I became a wandering soul, rooted to the entrails of this wasteland. You might think that smiling in the face of death should be something glorious, but there’s nothing glorious about this. There’s only a deep and sinister emptiness inside. Destiny made me walk among demons I didn’t need to be scared of. It allowed me to stare at the sun without looking away from dawn to dusk. It placed the burden of this world on my back and also forced me to remember the meaning of love…and of giving human beings a second chance. Was there ever a reason for so many broken laws? Who knows…Let me tell you about a fascinating journey and faraway lands, about unswerving loyalty and unimaginable creatures. My name is Erico Lombardo and I am doomed to be aware of myself. Maybe, after my death, I still had one last thing to do…” “Diary of a Zombie” transports us to a desolate world, a planet wiped out by a massive pandemic where human beings have almost become extinct. But what makes this story different from the rest is the fact that it is told from a very unusual point of view: that of a zombie who, for unknown reasons, keeps his human consciousness and free will after being transformed. This is a unique case. After a few chapters in which the character is introduced, we will witness a story of redemption, full of human values, that is centered around a peculiar friendship. Erico’s cold, cynical and unsociable behavior will gradually change as he meets a lonely and mysterious 8-year-old girl on whom humankind’s scarce chances of survival depend. During the whole of his epic adventure, Erico will be linked to his most human side again, as he recovers memories and feelings he had not experienced since the times when warm blood still coursed through his veins. “Diary of a Zombie”, set in a post-apocalyptic Barcelona, presents a pleasant story which will bring the reader both tears and laughter. It is a breath of fresh air that reinvents a genre which apparently had nothing new to offer.

What a Dragon Should Know: SUPER Edition


G.A. Aiken - 2010

Yet I, Gwenvael, will courageously face down this terrifying…woman? It turns out the Beast, a.k.a. Dagmar Reinholdt, is a woman—one with steel-gray eyes and a shocking disregard for my good looks. Beneath her plain robes and prim spectacles lies a sensual creature waiting to be unleashed. Who better than a dragon to thaw out that icy demeanor? And who better than a beast to finally tame a mighty dragon’s heart? Last Dragon StandingI know what they see when they look at me. The charming, soft-spoken dragoness bred from the most powerful of royal bloodlines. A disguise stronger than any battle shield that allows me to keep all suitors at tail’s length. A technique that’s worked until him. Until Ragnar the Cunning, handsome barbarian warlord and warrior mage from the desolate Northlands. Unlike those who’ve come before him, he does not simply submit to my astounding charm and devastating smile. Instead, he dismisses me as vapid, useless and, to my great annoyance, rather stupid! Yet I’ll allow no male to dismiss me. Soon he’ll learn my worth, my many skills, and the strength of my will. For this one challenges me enough to make me want to ruthlessly taunt him, tease him and, finally, when the trap is set, bring him to his knees.

Authors of the Impossible: The Paranormal and the Sacred


Jeffrey J. Kripal - 2010
    Even historians of religion, whose work naturally attends to events beyond the realm of empirical science, have shown scant interest in the subject. But the history of psychical phenomena, Kripal contends, is an untapped source of insight into the sacred. By tracing that history thru the last two centuries of Western thought we can see its potential centrality to the critical study of religion. Kripal grounds his study in the work of four major figures in the history of paranormal research: psychical researcher Frederic Myers; writer Charles Fort; astronomer, computer scientist & ufologist Jacques Vallee; & philosopher & sociologist Bertrand Mheust. Thru incisive analyses of these thinkers, Kripal ushers readers into a beguiling world somewhere between fact, fiction & fraud. The cultural history of telepathy, teleportation & UFOs; a ghostly love story; the occult dimensions of sf; cold war psychic espionage; galactic colonialism; & the intimate relationship between consciousness & culture all come together in Authors of the Impossible, a look at how the paranormal bridges the sacred & the scientific.

The Divine Blueprint: Temples, Power Places, and the Global Plan to Shape the Human Soul


Freddy Silva - 2010
    Can a temple transform a person into an extraordinary being?In this ground-breaking book, researcher and best-selling author Freddy Silva explores the origin of sacred sites and discovers that behind ancient temples lies a secret, spiritual technology whose roots lie with a race that survived a global flood in 9703 BC.According to surviving texts, groups of sages set out to “rebuild the former mansions of the gods” by creating a vast, interconnected network of power places on the Earth’s hotspots of energy — temples that would serve as self-help centers for future generations.Based on solid evidence, this original work reveals how a measurable energy in these sacred sites is capable of inducing altered states, essentially validating ancient accounts which describe such portals as living intermediaries between matter and spirit that serve to “transform men into gods.”And what’s more, these portals are still working.From Stonehenge and the sacred places of Egypt, to India, the Americas, Pacific islands and the Far East, it is a 17,000-year journey of levitating stones, underwater “cities of knowledge,” 15-foot tall gods, and the secret esoteric groups who’ve kept their single-minded vision alive throughout recent history. The aim? The spiritual transformation of every person on Earth.(note: this version replaces the former titles Common Wealth, and Legacy of the Gods)

The Mists of Avalon


Frederic P. Miller - 2010
    The book follows the trajectory of Morgaine (often called Morgan Le Fay or Morgan of the Fairies in other works), a priestess fighting to save her matriarchal Celtic culture in a country where patriarchal Christianity threatens to destroy the pagan way of life. The book follows the lives of Gwenhwyfar, Viviane, Morgause, Igraine and other women who are often marginalized in Arthurian retellings. King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table are supporting rather than main characters. The Mists of Avalon is in stark contrast to other retellings of the Arthurian tales, which consistently paint Morgaine as a distant, one-dimensional evil witch or sorceress, with no real explanation given (or required) for her antipathy.
