The danger to Xanth was so great that only a night mare could offer hope! The Nextwave of barbarian warriors was invading Xanth from the north, ravaging and destroying as they advanced. But Mare Imbrium had her own problems. Ever since she had gained the half soul, the night mare had begun to mishandle her job of delivering bad dreams. Now the night Stallion dismissed her, exiling her to the day world with a message for King Trent: Beware the Horseman! She had no idea what that meant. But that was the way with prophetic warnings—nobody could understand them until it was too late. Then she met the Horseman. And she discovered that one who would right a night mare was a master of a bit and spur, and not a man to surrender her. For the night mare, it all began to be a horrible nightmare!

"Kaum, dass Lena raus war, vergrub er seinen Kopf tief im Kissen. Denn wenn er ehrlich war, fühlte er sich von ihr angezogen. Seit der Minute, als sie ihn das erste Mal angesehen hatte. Als die grünen Blitze ihn geblendet hatten." Die Oberstufe war etwas anders als die Mittelstufe, erwachsen werden war nicht so leicht, wie er es sich vorgestellt hatte und nebenbei noch Liebeschaos, Jonas rauchte der Kopf regelrecht. Auch Diana, seine beste Freundin, dachte eigentlich, dass ihr größtes Problem war, dass Jonas ihre Liebe nicht zu erwidern schien. Aber kaum dass die mysteriöse, ach so wunderschöne Feline in ihr Leben eingetaucht war und Jonas' eine kleine Schwester im Krankenhaus aufgrund von Mordversuchen dieser zu sterben scheint, die merkwürdigsten und ungeheuerlichsten Sachen passieren, war Diana sich bewusst, dass der Liebeskummer wohl doch nicht ihr größtes Problem sein würde ...

An analysis of the novels of Maturin, Gogol, Dostoevsky, Mann, Lovecraft and Pelevin through the prism of their interest in investigating the nature of the nightmare reveals the unstudied features of the nightmare as a mental state and traces the mosaic of coincidences leading from literary experiments to today’s culture of nightmare consumption.


The Underside of the Nixon Years

This extraordinary book had an extraordinary genesis. In July 1973, for the first time in its history, The New York Times Magazine devoted a full issue to a single article: Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Anthony Lukas's account of the Watergate story to date. Six months later, a second installment ran in another full issue. Later the Times asked him to write still a third issue on the impeachment. This piece never appeared because it was overtaken by Nixon's resignation. But Lukas's painstaking reporting on Nixon's last months in office appears here, twenty-five years after his resignation, for the first time in paperback, along with added information on every aspect of Watergate. Widely acclaimed as a major text of the Watergate saga, J. Anthony Lukas's Nightmare, with a new foreword from presidential historian Joan Hoff, is an investigative masterwork highlighted by in-depth character sketches of the key players. As described by Publishers Weekly, "The result is a model of measured judgment and of careful selection and synthesis, and it is presented with such masterly narrative skill that one reads the old familiar story as if it were all new and fresh." For students of history coming to these events for the first time, Nightmare reveals in depth the particular trauma of a nation in turmoil; for those who remember, it is once more brought to life.

Since she was a child, she’s been plagued by a recurring nightmare. And something about this camp feels familiar. Has she been there before? Why can’t she remember?

The Nightmare Affair is the first in a gripping new urban fantasy trilogy by Mindee Arnett. Sixteen-year-old Dusty Everhart breaks into houses late at night, but not because she's a criminal. No, she's a Nightmare. Literally. Being the only Nightmare at Arkwell Academy, a boarding school for magickind, and living in the shadow of her mother's infamy, is hard enough. But when Dusty sneaks into Eli Booker's house, things get a whole lot more complicated. He's hot, which means sitting on his chest and invading his dreams couldn't get much more embarrassing. But it does. Eli is dreaming of a murder. Then Eli's dream comes true. Now Dusty has to follow the clues—both within Eli's dreams and out of them—to stop the killer before more people turn up dead. And before the killer learns what she's up to and marks her as the next target. At the Publisher's request, this title is being sold without Digital Rights Management Software (DRM) applied.

Grotesk, dunkel und bizarr. Definitiv ein Leckerbissen für Noir-Fans. Stanton Carlisle lernt die schmutzigen Tricks der Jahrmärkte und wird zum skrupellosen Gauner. Er gibt sich als spiritueller Guru aus, um die Reichen und Schwachen auszunehmen. Doch sein Spiel der Täuschungen und Lügen treibt ihn geradewegs in die Albtraumgasse ... Mit effektiver Atmosphäre und außergewöhnlicher Prosa geschrieben, ist Nightmare Alley mehr als ein großes Drama: Stantons entschlossener Aufstieg und der unvermeidliche Sturz ins Verderben ist die röntgenscharfe Durchleuchtung des 'american dream'. Nightmare Alley erscheint im Festa Verlag als deutsche Erstveröffentlichung. Time magazine: 'Nightmare Alley kombiniert die gruselige Welt von Tod Brownings Film Freaks mit dem eigenwilligen Zynismus eines Jim-Thompson-Romans.' Palm Beach Post: 'Stan Carlisle ist ein gutaussehender Betrüger, der sich langsam die Nahrungskette hinabarbeitet – ein Roman, in den kein Lichtstrahl eindringt.' Los Angeles Times: 'Der ›Albtraum‹ des Titels trifft es genau ... der amerikanische Traum wird umgedreht. Die Vorstellung, dass die menschliche Kreatur in einer Falle lebt, der sie niemals entfliehen kann, stammt aus der Seele des Autors. Nie war Noir autobiografischer ... Nightmare Alley bleibt ein Meisterwerk. Das menschliche Tier ist allein, hilflos angesichts des Schicksals, und stolpert durchs Dunkel.' James MacBride: 'Ein 1A-Guignol mit einem Hauch von schwarzer Magie.' Jack Conroy: 'Gresham hat etwas von Nelson Algrens gehässiger Kraft, mit der er die Menschen der untersten Schicht darstellt.' Chicago Reader: 'Dieser Roman verschlingt geröstete kleine Cormac McCarthy-Romane zum Frühstück.'

Die Aura des Unnahbaren, die dem Traum Universalität verleiht, kann dramaturgisch als Einführung von Utopien dienen und zudem im nonfiktionalen Kontext zur Projektionsfläche von intrinsisch motivierten Vorhaben im öffentlichen Raum werden: einem Politikum. Innerhalb dieser Arbeit unterliegt das Thema des amerikanischen Traumes einer kritischen Auseinandersetzung mit den Abstraktionsmodellen aus antiken Atomtheorien, der Willensgestaltung von Individuen sowie einer Projektion des herausgearbeiteten Gerüsts auf die Figuren aus Filmen, Fernsehserien und Theaterstücken des Autors Alan Ball.

A Silent Nightmare explores the issues surrounding illicit drugs and new drug policy options. America has struggled against illicit drugs for decades; however, drug use and abuse continue to weight heavily on the shoulders of our youth, crime associated with illicit drugs has increased dramatically, and drug traffickers and their stealth friends in the business world continue to grow richer. This book uncovers the myths, the root causes, and the many drug-related events and delivers the urgently needed hope that much can be achieved under a new drug paradigm. It is the author's intention to shed light on a new path leading towards a more rational, coherent and humane drug policy. He joins many distinguished personalities, including the late Milton Friedman, Economics Nobel Prize winner, William F. Buckley, Jr., founder of the National Review, and Walter Cronkite, award-winning journalist, who have raised their voices calling for an overhaul of the current failed drug policy.

The Tender and Playlen families were just two of many trying to carve out calm and fruitful existences in a nice place...But death, evil death, came as powerful opponent: The horror and mystery begins when some of the local residents start to turn up dead. The suspects are varied: the suspicious are all present or past employees of Lakeside Elementary School in Saint Petersburg, a small resort town in west central Florida. The story takes place nine years after the end of one of the deadliest wars in history: World War II. The personal problem for Tim and Todd Tender--fraternal twins--develops when their two best friends, Dink and Link Playlen--identical twins--are kidnapped. Both sets of brothers, precocious to say the least, had recently started their sixth-grade, big-shot year at Lakeside. Because of an extremely incompetent sheriff and his under-sheriff (the only law in the tiny town), the Tenders, with the aid of an Annie Oakley-wannabe teacher, are left to rescue their buddies before they become additional deadly scenes in the community's nightmare...
