The origin of evil—what it is, why it exists and how we deal with it in our lives and world—is an issue that all of us contemplate from time to time. In "Shadowland: Evil, Compassion and the Power of Thought", author Imre Vallyon reveals the existential reality of evil as imperfection originating in the Cosmos at the beginning of time and continuing in our world and its present-day inhabitants. He also reminds us to be aware of the power of our thoughts for both good and evil, and to use that power only for good, only for that which brings in the Light, so that we may help the Light Principle – not the Shadowland – in us and in the world. Only by developing compassion and forgiveness and using our creative power of thought in positive ways can Humanity stop feeding the Shadowland of our planet.

How the Mafia Bet Britain in a Global Gamble

View: 9797

Shadowland is a revelatory and dramatic true-life thriller spanning much of the twentieth century, a page-turning chronicle of an elaborate Mafia plan to 'invade' Europe using 1960s London as a bridgehead. The capital city of the Swinging Sixties was also a world of gambling, guns and gangsters. Several veterans of the era are astonished that they survived it and some feel protected enough - now that most of the killers are themselves dead - to reveal to bestselling author Douglas Thompson the details and secrets of one of history's greatest criminal conspiracies, and of how world-champion boxer Freddie Mills really died. The tension in this real-life narrative is ferocious as the tale moves from London to New York and Las Vegas, down to Miami, into Havana, then on to the Bahamas and back to an unexpected denouement in London. Brutal, terrifying and intrigue-packed, it is an account of the Mob's Machiavellian global manipulation of governments and officials. Shadowland recounts events from the viewpoint of the pawns as well as the kingmakers. All the big players of Mafia history are here, controlled by the gangster genius Meyer Lansky, but so are the hit men, the fixers, the hoodlums and the wiseguys.

“Robin has splendidly captured the quintessential spirit of Fafhrd and the Gray Mouser. Somewhere in Lankhmar, Fritz is smiling” (Dennis L. McKiernan, national bestselling author). Lankhmar, an ancient and decadent city of magic, where witches and sorcerers scheme, where gods and ghosts walk the streets and shadow-haunted alleys, where violence and death dance together like lovers in the darkness. Lankhmar–a city of plague! Years ago, two rogues bound together by friendship and a shared destiny neither understood met in Lankhmar. Living by their swords, their wits and their daring, they sought adventure and love. Adventure they found, but love–they lost. In despair, they left the city, vowing never to return. Yet vows are made to be broken. Once again, Fafhrd and the Gray Mouser are drawn back to Lankhmar and quickly ensnared in its wizard-games as one jealous mage turns on his rivals and unleashes a black force not even he can control, a power that threatens the city itself. Fafhrd and the Gray Mouser, two of the greatest and most beloved characters in fantasy literature, return in this novel-length adventure by Nebula Award nominated author Robin Wayne Bailey. Swords Against the Shadowland, authorized by series creator Fritz Leiber, is a direct sequel to Leiber’s famous story, “Ill-Met in Lankhmar!” Named one of the six best fantasy novels of 1998 by the Science Fiction Chronicle.

Suze is a mediator -- a liaison between the living and the dead. In other words, she sees dead people. And they won't leave her alone until she helps them resolve their unfinished business with the living. But Jesse, the hot ghost haunting her bedroom, doesn't seem to need her help. Which is a relief, because Suze has just moved to sunny California and plans to start fresh, with trips to the mall instead of the cemetery, and surfing instead of spectral visitations. But the very first day at her new school, Suze realizes it's not that easy. There's a ghost with revenge on her mind ... and Suze happens to be in the way.

J'ai ouvert les yeux, et le décor familier de ma chambre s'est précisé peu à peu. C'est alors que j'ai eu un sursaut. J'aurais juré que je n'avais pas fait mon lit ce matin. Pourtant, il était impeccablement fait, les oreillers bien gonflés et les draps pliés au carré, comme à l'hôpital. Et sur le dessus-de-lit en patchwork, une rose rouge. Sur le coup j'ai cru que c'était Christopher qui l'avait déposée en douce. Une petite carte blanche était glissée sous la tige hérissée d'épines. À sa vue, une boule d'angoisse m'a obstrué la gorge. D'une écriture que je ne connaissais que trop bien, les quatre mots suivants, soulignés trois fois, s'étalaient en lettres majuscules : ON SE RETROUVERA BIENTÔT

Published from 1919 to 1923, Shadowland presented a curious blend of "art poses" of scantily-clad Hollywood stars and New York show girls together with some of the most literate articles of the day by some of the country's finest critics and essayists. It may well be regarded as a Warren G. Harding era version of Playboy, attracting writers of unqiue distinction and ability. Shadowland is now little known outside of the half-dozen libraries that still retain copies. This anthology collects articles by George Bernard Shaw, Theodore Dreiser, Frank Harris, Heywood Broun, Janet Flanner, Anna Pavlova, and Victor Herbert.
