The year is 20XX. Earth’s advancement in technology has allowed it to expand to the far reaches of space. Humans have moved to the many ‘colonies’ surrounding it. New species and races have appeared. New energy sources have been found reducing the value of fossil fuels. It was supposed to be a time of peace, but chaos loomed in the faces of many. The world was in the midst of a tremendous crisis.

This first book in the After Eden series chronicles the rise of nations from the descendants of Cain and the descendants of Seth. When a branch of Cain’s line gives rise to the abominable race of Giants, Seth and his followers lay the foundations of the great city of Lhiosquor. With divine help, the people of Lhiosquor manage to prevent the first generation of Giants from subjugating the human race. However, it is not long before decisions made by some of Seth’s descendants set in motion a prophesied sequence of catastrophic events. A new generation of Giants arises, threatening to destroy the City of Light from without as the ambition and machinations of the powerful threaten it from within. At this time, God raises up the prophet Enoch. Descended from both the line of Seth and the line of Cain, Enoch presents a choice to the people of Lhiosquor and all other free peoples of the world: acknowledge God and receive His favour, or fall to the cruel dominion of the Giants.

Over the course of history, many wars have changed the political and cultural landscape of our world. While these events are defined by their upheaval and violence, they frequently contribute to the formation of the identity of entire generations or groups of people, and thus have significant cultural effects. Despite the physical and emotional destruction that occurs during these turbulent periods, they have inspired prolific artistic creation. In the wake of traumatic events over the centuries, a myriad of artists have produced works that immortalise the most dramatic moments of these wars in order to establish them in history forever. This book presents beautiful images depicting famous battles and war scenes, accompanied by the iconic text of the legendary Chinese military strategist Sun Tzu, as well as texts documenting notable moments of different wars, each written by well-known writers. From Uccello’s The Battle of San Romano to Picasso’s Guernica, this work offers a captivating look at artworks inspired by war and what they reveal about humanity’s history.

Als erster Autor ist Ken Liu für eine Short Story sowohl mit dem ›Nebula‹ als auch mit dem ›Hugo‹ und dem ›World Fantasy Award‹ ausgezeichnet worden. Mit »Die Schwerter von Dara«, dem ersten Band der Seidenkrieger-Trilogie, hat Liu ein episches High-Fantasy-Werk geschaffen, in dem der Autor meisterhaft Elemente der chinesischen Mythologie mit politischen Intrigen und überzeugenden Charakteren mischt: Zwei Männer höchst unterschiedlicher Herkunft steigen gemeinsam zu Anführern einer Rebellion gegen den tyrannischen Kaiser auf. Sie sind sich näher als Brüder – und werden zu Todfeinden, als ein erbittertes Ringen um die Nachfolge des Herrschers beginnt. "Erzählt in Lius eleganter, intelligenter Prosa, ist der Roman ein prächtiges Fest epischer Fantasy." Rob Bedford, SFF World

Renaissance Syntax and Subjectivity

Ideological Contents of Latin and the Vernacular in Scottish Prose Chronicles

John Leeds examines the choice made by Renaissance chroniclers between Latin and the vernacular, in light of some central concerns of current literary theory. He extends the boundaries of existing critical literature on early modern subjectivity to include the grammatical subject, showing how its disposition, in the radically dissimilar syntactic systems of Latin and Scots, conditions the way in which the subject (i.e., the human individual) is conceived in the writing of history.

The 1990s was the decade when Marvel Comics sold 8.1 million copies of an issue of the X-Men, saw its superstar creators form their own company, cloned Spider-Man, and went bankrupt. The 1990s was when Superman died, Batman had his back broken, and the runaway success of Neil Gaiman’s Sandman led to DC Comics’ Vertigo line of adult comic books. It was the decade of gimmicky covers, skimpy costumes, and mega-crossovers. But most of all, the 1990s was the decade when companies like Image, Valiant and Malibu published million-selling comic books before the industry experienced a shocking and rapid collapse. American Comic Book Chronicles: The 1990s is a year-by-year account of the comic book industry during the Bill Clinton years. This full-color hardcover volume documents the comic book industry’s most significant publications, most notable creators, and most impactful trends from that decade. Written by Keith Dallas and Jason Sacks.
