Book Description :

The young girl in my story lives in a fantasy world most of the time. Her father works six days a week. She has no mother or siblings to play with, except for school she is by herself. So she created a fantasy world with playmates that she talks to. It takes up most of her time after school when her father is at work. Halloween spooks and goblins have always fascinated her. She does not understand the spirit world, but she has become involved with a friendly spirit. The experience seams so real that she becomes afraid and intrigued. Is it real or is it her imagination playing tricks? Of course, she couldn't tell anyone. The story becomes bizarre, scary, full of chuckles, and entertaining. It is the kind of story that you can't stop reading.

Book Description :

The myriad ways in which colour and light have been adapted and applied in the art, architecture, and material culture of past societies is the focus of this interdisciplinary volume. Light and colour’s iconographic, economic, and socio-cultural implications are considered by established and emerging scholars including art historians, archaeologists, and conservators, who address the variety of human experience of these sensory phenomena. In today’s world it is the norm for humans to be surrounded by strong, artificial colours, and even to see colour as perhaps an inessential or surface property of the objects around us. Similarly, electric lighting has provided the power and ability to illuminate and manipulate environments in increasingly unprecedented ways. In the context of such a saturated experience, it becomes difficult to identify what is universal, and what is culturally specific about the human experience of light and colour. Failing to do so, however, hinders the capacity to approach how they were experienced by people of centuries past. By means of case studies spanning a broad historical and geographical context and covering such diverse themes as architecture, cave art, the invention of metallurgy, and medieval manuscript illumination, the contributors to this volume provide an up-to-date discussion of these themes from a uniquely interdisciplinary perspective. The papers range in scope from the meaning of colour in European prehistoric art to the technical art of the glazed tiles of the Shah mosque in Isfahan. Their aim is to explore a multifarious range of evidence and to evaluate and illuminate what is a truly enigmatic topic in the history of art and visual culture.

"Little Elaine Sawchuk, a minister's daughter who grew up in the north end of Winnipeg with a need for attention and a love for singing, could see only the magic in show business. She pursued it after becoming an X-ray technician, she pursued it after becoming a wife and a mother, but as Elaine Steele, one of the best supper club singers in Canada, ... she had to pay a high price for the little bit of glamour and those moments of applause --Canadian Weekly, Toronto Star, May 8-14, 1965 Priests in the Attic, cast in Toronto during the tumultuous `60s through late`70s is a confessional story of lost faith, redemption and hope. This memoir is written through the power of reverie, a unique concept of the French philosopher Gaston Bachelard--the driving force behind this work. In The Poetics of Reverie, Bachelard describes his use of reverie to unearth emotional truth. All of us possess our own emotional truth and thus, each of us has a unique story to tell--but who am I, that anyone should be interested in my story? Let my book tell you: I'm everyone who has ever taken a breath and marveled at the wonder and miracle of life. I'm everyone who has discovered their own finitude and shuddered at the concept of one day, being no more. I'm everyone who has suffered the pain of loss, the torment of regret, the desolation of loneliness, misgivings of the past and a fear of the future. I'm everyone who, through an anguished cry for help, receives the possibility of a new beginning and a miracle of new life through God's immeasurable grace. Who am I? I am one with you--and all of us have a story to tell. This is mine.

For fans of Small Spaces, Doll Bones, and Mary Downing Hahn, a truly chilling (and historically inspired) ghost story from the talented author of The Forgotten Girl. Celeste knows she should be excited to spend two weeks at her grandparents' lake house with her brother, Owen, and their cousins Capri and Daisy, but she's not. Bugs, bad cell reception, and the dark waters of the lake... no thanks. On top of that, she just failed her swim test and hates being in the water—it's terrifying. But her grandparents are strong believers in their family knowing how to swim, especially having grown up during a time of segregation at public pools. And soon strange things start happening—the sound of footsteps overhead late at night. A flickering light in the attic window. And Celete's cousins start accusing her of pranking them when she's been no where near them! Things at the old house only get spookier until one evening when Celeste looks in the steamy mirror after a shower and sees her face, but twisted, different... Who is the girl in the mirror? And what does she want? Past and present mingle in this spine-tingling ghost story by award-winning author India Hill Brown.

Book Description :

Do you believe in ghosts—that these spirits walk among us—almost as if they are still alive? Enter the world of Haunting at Remington House and you will believe this to be true. From the moment you begin reading Haunting at Remington House, author Laura V. Keegan leads you into the dark world of the supernatural—where those who have died still live! Tom Gardner, anguished and guilt-ridden by the death of his young wife, Elise, leaves his life in Jamestown to escape the insanity he barely survived after her death. At Remington House, Tom finds he is tormented not only by his dead wife's spirit, but also by other spirits who have remained in this New England coastal home. The moment he begins his journey to his new home, the nightmare begins. The previous owners, Helen and Gabriel Lindeman, dead for many years, still reside in Remington House. And Tom is not a welcome guest. The Lindemans will horrify you as you realize their frightening powers over the entire household. Elise's ghost will stop at nothing to bring about the demise of her husband and all that is dear to him. Possession of those around her, the ability to appear as a human, her cunning newfound strength and an alliance with Benjamin, a dark and formidable spirit, make her far more dangerous. With lights dimmed, but never turned off, you will read into the night, turning page after page. You never know who is lurking at the end of the next hall. Is that a shadow or . . . a ghost? We will begin when we end. That is the rule of eternity. The end. The beginning. The finalization of life, the birth of the haunt. —so begins the story of Remington House.
