Book Description :

Every twenty years, a rare lunar phenomenon occurs, called the perigee syzygy, or supermoon, also called the black moon. It creates a month with no full moon, always in February. The black moon is celebrated by pagans, witches. As a special time to work spells, it's considered to be more powerful and effective. My character, Angel Raye, was born under such a moon, and has powerful hearing and sight. With his eyes closed, he can see nefarious spirits, demons, ghosts, the harbinger of death, and others. Once the demons realize he knows they exist and he can actually see them, they attack. To protect himself and the ones he loves, he must create a strong defense. He finds powerful allies in his mother's earthly spirit and a Romanian, Alexandru Sarbu, a member of a powerful group called the Black Dragons. Together they fight evil that walks the earth daily.

Book Description :

A selection of poems on the theme of love and other life thoughts. They span the years of courtship, marriage and bereavement – young love, companionship and love enduring after death. Poetry should be spoken aloud and is best shared with others. These poems have been written with this intention in mind. The “Symphonic Voices” poems are arranged for presentation by two voices. This selection includes “The Blue Spot”, an imaginative approach to the journey of the space-craft Voyager, launched by NASA in 1977, and following its epic passage through the solar system and on to outer space. “Our solitary life sends human love Out into the cosmic night”.

Book Description :

Adeline Moore knows how frightening it can be to discover that something vital is missing from your life. It can be even worse to be completely unaware of this hole. Some people have such a distorted view of themselves that they literally can't see what's wrong in their lives. In this inspirational memoir and exploration of self-awareness, Moore uses examples from her own life to show you the importance of seeing the whole picture. She refuses to be blind and holds up a mirror to her own experiences and the experiences of her two troubled parents. The couple experienced illness, homelessness, poverty, and more. Neither was emotionally equipped to deal with the challenges of life, and they both struggled to cope with any kind of change. As she works her way back through their histories, Moore shows you how entwined three lives can be. She traces the trauma from her parents to her own life, learning that as long as you have an open mind and willing eyes, you can see the patterns progress in your own life and make the deliberate choice whether to let them continue. This is where self-awareness truly begins.

Book Description :

Ever since its discovery nearly thirty years ago, the phenomenon of blindsight—vision without visual consciousness—has been the source of great controversy in the philosophy of mind, psychology, and the neurosciences. Despite the fact that blindsight is widely acknowledged to be a critical test-case for theories of mind, Blindsight and the Nature of Consciousness is the first extended treatment of the phenomenon from a philosophical perspective. Holt argues, against much received wisdom, for a thorough-going materialism—the view not only that mental states are brain states, but (much more controversially) that mental properties are physical as well. Designed not only for philosophers and scientists, Blindsight and the Nature of Consciousness has something to say to anyone interested in the mystery of the human mind and in how philosophers and scientists are working toward solving that mystery.

Book Description :

A blind girl drawing is abnormal even on the magical island of Edaion where leaves brush themselves into piles in the middle of the night. So when Odette Reyes, a girl blind from birth, begins to experience ominous side effects of the island's "gift," her brother Leocardo and best friend Aniela must figure out what the doctors cannot. As an immigrant, Leocardo is not biased by accepted rules of magic and determines that Odette's drawings are premonitions. Aniela grew up with magic and knows premonitions are impossible. She determines Odette is a medium channeling voiceless spirits. Who is right? Whose eyes will you read through? While Aniela tries to escape a lifestyle where obligations take priority over friendships, she befriends Odette, a blind girl with the ability to draw. Almost immediately, concerns and questions arise as Aniela suspects that Odette's gift is far stronger than any seen before. In the middle of family turmoil and a complicated romantic relationship with Odette's brother, Aniela faces the realization that helping her comatose friend means disobeying her mother, something she has never done before.

Book Description :

Blindsight is the Hugo Award–nominated novel by Peter Watts, "a hard science fiction writer through and through and one of the very best alive" (The Globe and Mail). Two months have past since a myriad of alien objects clenched about the Earth, screaming as they burned. The heavens have been silent since—until a derelict space probe hears whispers from a distant comet. Something talks out there: but not to us. Who should we send to meet the alien, when the alien doesn't want to meet? Send a linguist with multiple-personality disorder and a biologist so spliced with machinery that he can't feel his own flesh. Send a pacifist warrior and a vampire recalled from the grave by the voodoo of paleogenetics. Send a man with half his mind gone since childhood. Send them to the edge of the solar system, praying you can trust such freaks and monsters with the fate of a world. You fear they may be more alien than the thing they've been sent to find—but you'd give anything for that to be true, if you knew what was waiting for them. . . .

Book Description :

Blind Sight is for the searching soul struggling to find an enduring faith. This remarkable retelling of The Gospel According to Mark sweeps away the dust of the ages, uncovering extraordinary hidden power, bridging millennia and recovering Jesus' vision of God. Out of archaic mists of an indistinct past, Blind Sight comes with good news for a world that only believes the bad. Emerging from more than twenty years of exhaustive research and literary analysis of Mark's first century roots, this fresh approach pushes beyond mere historical data and reveals a surprising vision to twenty-first century eyes. A key is turned that releases Mark's Gospel from its captivity to the thought forms of the ancients and makes the power of his message manifest in this new millennium. Approaching the biblical text with inquiring freshness Dr. Kennon accepted nothing uncritically. He read every book in the Old Testament and every reading into Greek classical literature seeking associations to Mark. He has written with confidence in his research and has dared say things no one else has, pushing beyond the limits of tradition and authority. This new narrative is based on the Greek text as Mark shaped it. Dr. Kennon relies on his own textual criticism and translation of the Greek using the traditional sixteen chapter format. Describing the pairs of opposites that make up the literary construction of the text, he identifies "synoptic composition" as a key to its interpretation. "Of greatest issue for Mark," Kennon says, "is the persistently stubborn human spirit that resists accepting the nearness and goodness of the rule of God." He expresses the hope that Blind Sight will help readers find God. "Underneath the mountain of confusion that has been dumped upon us" in this present age, writes Dr. Kennon, lives "the divine within us and beyond us." Blind Sight stands as a seminal witness to Mark's first century liberating word in the twenty first century.

Book Description :

At the age of fifteen, Busser Howell lost 98 percent of his vision. At the age of forty he lost the remaining 2 percent. Were the story to end there you would likely not be entirely shocked as this type of circumstance is not that uncommon. But this is not the whole story-not by a long shot. You see, Howell is an artist-a painter, to be exact. And prior to being a professional, working artist in New York City he was a partner and worked twenty-four years in an interior design and restoration business. Possibly even more amazing than his breaking of our stereotypes of the blind is the fact that he is not alone. Interviewing other blind artists to discover each person's particular point of view and what kind of descriptions work for them, author and blind artist Busser Howell's debut is an extraordinary look into a world never before seen or understood from the point of view of the visually challenged. Beginning by examining the concepts of creativity, perception, touch, and accessibility, Howell engages the vibrant, boundless minds of fifteen visually impaired artists to mine their thoughts, feelings, and understanding to piece together a common thread of experience. It is the artists telling their story, their preferences and dislikes, and their ability, despite their blindness, to tap into sight's brain-based function to see and comprehend our world and its contents. An enlightening and fascinating journey into the artistic process as seen by those whose vision is either severely impaired or altogether absent, Howell's impressive collection of writings and interviews is a probing examination of the artistic process and the nature of art itself. Evocative and inspiring, Blindsight is a deeply moving passage that documents the journey of visual artists as they transition from the visual input of the outside world to the output of their inner vision transcending blindness into the light of creativity.

Book Description :

"Due to the generous representation of the afferent visual system within the brain, neurological disease may disrupt vision as a presenting symptom or as a secondary effect of the disease. Conversely, early developmental disturbances of vision often disrupt ocular motor control systems, giving rise to complex disorders such as nystagmus, strabismus, and torticollis. The signs and symptoms of neurological disease are elusive by their very nature, presenting a confounding diagnostic challenge. Neurological medications and neurosurgical treatments can produce neuro-ophthalmological dysfunction that can be difficult to distinguish from disease progression. Affected patients may experience substantial delays in diagnosis, and are often subjected to extensive (and expensive) diagnostic testing. Scientific articles pertaining to specific disorders are scattered throughout medical subspecialty journals. These children continue to "fall through the cracks" of our medical education system. The increasing recognition that pediatric neuro-ophthalmology comprises a distinct set of diseases from those seen in adults has led to its emergence as a dedicated field of study. "Since the original publication of Pediatric Neuro-Ophthalmology nearly fourteen years ago, interest in the field has burgeoned. Pediatric ophthalmology and pediatric neurology subspecialty conferences often include symposia dedicated to recent advances in pediatric neuro-ophthalmology. Technical advances in neuroimaging have given rise to a more integrated mechanistic classification of neuro-ophthalmological disease in children. Our understanding of neurodevelopmental disorders of the visual system has expanded, longstanding monoliths have been dissembled into component parts, basic molecular mechanisms have taken center stage, and genetic underpinnings have become definitional. Evolutionary alterations can now be observed at the level of the gene, adding a new dimension to our understanding of disease pathogenesis. New classifications now encompass clinically disparate conditions. Descriptive definitions have been supplanted by mechanistic ones, and clinical definitions superseded by genetic ones. Our concept of disease pathogenesis has been revised and in some cases overturned. Bearing witness to these remarkable advancements has compelled me to enhance and expand the first edition of Pediatric Neuro-Ophthalmology into this new and revised one. "In the first edition of this book, our goal was to present the clinical characteristics, diagnostic evaluation, and therapeutic options for the common neuro-ophthalmologic disorders of childhood. In so doing, we designed the book to be provide a narrative journey through the thought processes involved in the clinical management of these disorders. In this edition, I have retained the basic narrative format of original book, while expanding the exploration of these complex visual disorders in the context of the many new scientific advancements and discoveries that have come to light. These conditions are fun to diagnose, fascinating to understand, and gratifying to manage." --from the Preface to the 2nd Edition.

When interior decorator Claire Burke discovers one of her clients dead on the new rug that she's just installed, she never imagines that she will soon be hard at work investigating the woman's murder. However, her severely disabled, wheelchair-bound daughter Jessie forms a bond with the victim's husband Jimmy, and when the man is arrested for his wife's killing, Claire can't believe that anyone who could be so tender towards her daughter could actually harm another human being. Soon, she enlists her friend Tia to help prove the man's innocence. Tia ensconces herself in the man's home under the guise of providing him cleaning services--all the while snooping for possible clues that might exonerate the man. Claire's Aunt Augusta also arrives for a visit and quickly befriends an elderly neighbor, and the two old ladies--anxious to help Claire--start their own investigation. With detectives seemingly everywhere, no one can possibly imagine who will ultimately bring down the killer--and it may be the most amazing detective of them all!

Praise for Greg Hewett: 2010 Lambda Literary Award Finalist in Poetry 2003 Publishing Triangle Thom Gunn Award for Gay Poetry Winner In poems that are full of wit, touching, and introspective, as well as formally inventive, we find the poet losing his sight, becoming a parent, and occupying middle age with a sense of calm and inevitability. From "Skyglow": we spin filaments of light into profiles, drawing each other through something resembling time and space and dark. Let's call this something something vague and mythic as the ether. Let's say we're ethereal.
