"Una porta si aprì, un minuscolo riquadro intagliato nella sagoma della nave. Preceduta da un’ondata di terrore che provocò gemiti e scongiuri, ne uscì una figura avviluppata in un manto di pura oscurità. Avanzò a lenti passi cadenzati, il tempo stesso rallentò per accompagnarla. Dove poggiava i piedi, sbocciavano fiori di tenebre." La terra tuona al passaggio degli eserciti: uomini, bestie, creature d'osso e di metallo, crudeli condottieri e carne da macello. Giungono dai quattro angoli del Regno, dalle selve tenebrose del Manto Verde, dalle gelide steppe del nord, da mari, montagne e deserti senza fine. Giungono per decidere il destino del mondo e della razza umana. Le spade cantano, le armature sanguinano, gli scudi sprizzano scintille, l'abisso dell'inferno si spalanca nel cuore del campo di battaglia. La lotta, il coraggio, la tristezza, la forza, la paura, la luce e il buio... E poi la fine. Qui si conclude la grande avventura della Compagnia del Viandante! (Volume V). Se non l'hai ancora fatto, leggi i quattro volumi precedenti della saga, "La Città degli Automi", "La Forgia del Destino", "La Fiamma Eterna" e "L'Eredità di Ys".

Nessuno arretrò, nessuno cercò una via di fuga.Piantarono gli stivali nella terra umida, gli scudi levati di fronte a sé.Dietro a ogni elmo, un paio d'occhi fissava senza paura l'avanzata delle creature.Labbra si socchiusero, mostrando i denti stretti in sorrisi che sfidavano la morte.La notte era ancora lunga... La saga continua! "La Forgia del Destino" e "La Fiamma Eterna" già disponibili su Amazon, in formato carteceo e Kindle.

Silenzio.Si fermò, ascoltando i battiti disordinati del proprio cuore.«Vieni fuori, non è divertente!»Ma forse non era uno scherzo.«Che tu sia maledetto!» urlò con quanto fiato gli restava nei polmoni.L'eco del suo grido si perse nella nebbia.Nessuna risposta.Nessuna immagine, se non la soffocante cortina bianca che lo avvolgeva a mo' di sudario.Era solo, nel cuore della palude. La saga continua nel terzo volume, "La Fiamma Eterna", già disponibile in formato cartaceo ed ebook!Se non l'hai già fatto, leggi il primo volume della saga, "La Città degli Automi".Vuoi saperne di più?

After creating a controversial and hugely popular website, teenager Josh Swensen becomes trapped inside his brilliant creation and must find a way to remain anonymous. I am lying on my bed doing my homework in Greek and Latin roots for Advanced English. 'Ped' for foot, 'homo' for man, 'nym' for name. I sit with the dictionary in front of me, coming up with as many words as I can to complete the assignment. Pedestrian, homicide, pseudonym . . . I have more than thirty of them. By accident -- that's always how these life-changing things happen -- I connect two halves that don't seem like a word until I look it up. 'Pseudo', false; and 'cide,' to kill = pseudocide. To pretend to kill (yourself). I stare at the word for a good long time. Homicide, suicide, genocide: these are words you can find in the newspaper every day. But pseudocide . . . now here was something different. My mind wanders from my homework to the blue cotton threads of my bedspread. Pseudocide. A way to start again as someone completely new, a way to burn the old self and try on a new one. Josh Swensen isn't your average teenager - when he observes America, he sees a powerhouse of consumerism and waste. He's even tried to do something about it, with his start-up controversial website. But when Josh rises to messiah status of the internet world, he discovers that greed and superficiality are not easily escaped. Trapped inside his own creation, Josh feels his only way out is to stage his death and be free of his internet alter-ego, "Larry." But this plan comes with danger, and soon Josh finds himself cut off from the world, with no one to turn to for help. In this suspenseful young adult novel, Janet Tashjian has written a probing tour-de-force.

Published here for the first time in English in a brilliant translation by the peerless Gregory Rabassa, The Discovery of America by the Turks is a whimsical Brazilian take on The Taming of the Shrew that will remind readers why Jorge Amado is to Portuguese-American literature what Jorge Luis Borges is to Spanish-American literature. It follows the adventures of two Arab immigrants-"Turks," as Brazilians call them-who arrive in the rough Brazilian frontier in 1903 and become involved in a merchant's farcical attempt to marry off his shrew of a daughter.

Spider is gaunt, threadbare, unnerved by everything from his landlady to the smell of gas. He tells us his story in a storm of beautiful language that slowly reveals itself as a fiendishly layered construction of truth and illusion. With echoes of Beckett, Poe, and Paul Bowles, Spider is a tale of horror and madness, storytelling and skepticism, a novel whose dizzying style lays bare the deepest layers of subconscious terror.

One of the most important Italian poets of the last century, Vittorio Sereni (1913–83) wrote with a historical awareness unlike that of any of his contemporaries. A poet of both personal and political responsibility, his work sensitively explores life under fascism, military defeat and imprisonment, and the resurgence of extreme right-wing politics, as well as the roles played by love and friendship in the survival of humanity. The first substantial translation of Sereni’s oeuvre published anywhere in the world, The Selected Poetry and Prose of Vittorio Sereni is a unique guide to this twentieth-century poet. A bilingual edition, reissued in paperback for the poet’s centenary, it collects Sereni’s poems, criticism, and short fiction with a full chronology, commentary, bibliography, and learned introduction by British poet and scholar Peter Robinson.

In her extraordinary collection, Kathleen Jamie examines her native Scotland - a country at once wild and contained, rural and urban - and her place within it. In the author's own words: '2014 was a year of tremendous energy in my native Scotland, and knowing I wanted to embrace that energy and participate in my own way, I resolved to write a poem a week, and follow the cycle of the year.' The poems also venture into childhood and family memory - and look to ahead to the future. The Bonniest Companie is a visionary response to a year shaped and charged by both local and global forces, and will stand as a remarkable document of our times.

Written as an extended letter from a black Zimbabwean mother to her daughter leaving for a university place in America, this refreshing and poignant first novel draws back a veil to reveal life in Africa today. Using the lyrical African tradition of dialogue through storytelling, she weaves her tales into a complex fabric of experiences and so reveals the texture of her culture and the rich colours of her own life. The stories, a blend of traditional African folklore, personal tragedy and candid observations, speak of the beauty of love and passion, the burden of oppression and the pain of loss. Through Zimbabwe`s fight for independence, ZENZELE reveals the inner struggles of a woman to render comprehensible the contradictions of the revolution and define a role for herself as a woman and mother.
