Summary:

Ranging across fiction and poetry, critical theory and film, comics and speeches, Race, Ethnicity and Nuclear War explores how writers, thinkers, and filmmakers have tackled the question: Are nuclear weapons white? Paul Williams addresses myriad representations of nuclear weapons: the Manhattan Project, the destruction of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, nuclear tests across the globe, and the anxiety surrounding the superpowers' devastating arsenals. Ultimately, Williams concludes that many texts act as a reminder that the power enjoyed by the white Western world imperils the whole planet.

Summary:

États-Unis, début des années 1930. Les dirigeables sillonnent le ciel, Berlin est peuplée de zombies et la magie, apparue depuis près d’un siècle, a changé la donne. Le grand public hésite entre admiration et haine des « actifs », ces gens qui se téléportent, lisent dans les esprits, modifient la gravité, contrôlent les animaux, guérissent par imposition des mains... Deux organisations de magiques se livrent une guerre souterraine acharnée : l’Imperium et son maître le « président », qui tiennent le Japon, et le Grimnoir, société secrète de résistants aux intentions louables mais aux méthodes discutables. Jake Sullivan, lui, vétéran de la Grande Guerre au passé de truand, ne doit la liberté qu’à son serment de mettre ses pouvoirs au service du FBI chaque fois qu’une enquête implique des « actifs » criminels. Il sera bientôt confronté aux véritables enjeux géopolitiques d’un monde au bord de l’enfer et de la destruction ; il lui faudra choisir son camp. « C'est un condensé du meilleur de la littérature populaire, au sens noble du terme, et de la créativité et l'inventivité contemporaines. Le résultat est détonant, étonnant et totalement réussi ! » - Jean-Luc Rivera, ActuSF « Une œuvre pleine de bruit et de fureur. » - Le Journal du dimanche

Summary:

The perfect gift for music fans and anyone fascianated by Woodstock, Barefoot in Babylon is an in-depth look at the making of 1969’s Woodstock Music Festival—one of Rolling Stone’s “50 Moments That Changed the History of Rock and Roll.” “Mr. Spitz feeds us every riveting detail of the chaos that underscored the festival. It makes for some out-a-sight reading, man.”—The New York Times Book Review Fifty years ago, the Woodstock Music Festival defined a generation. Yet, there was much more than peace and love driving that long weekend the summer of 1969. In Barefoot in Babylon, journalist and New York Times bestselling author Bob Spitz gives readers a behind-the-scenes look at the making of Woodstock, from its inception and the incredible musicians that performed to its scandals and the darker side of the peace movement. With a new introduction, as well as maps, set lists, and a breakdown of all the personalities involved, Barefoot in Babylon is a must-read for anyone who was there—or wishes they were.

Summary:

L’humanité a pour vieille compagne l’angoisse de sa destruction. On trouve toujours un présage à interpréter ou un prophète pour annoncer que l’heure est proche. La menace change, mais le châtiment reste le même. Les hommes ont déçu leur Créateur ou trahi la Nature. Ils doivent affronter la fi n du monde, ou du moins, la fin d’un monde. Les villes sont condamnées à la destruction : l’antique Babylone n’est-elle pas le réceptacle impur de tous les maux terrestres ? La science-fiction s’est emparée de ce thème, puisant dans les cosmogonies les plus anciennes, dans la Bible et l’Apocalypse de Jean, réinterprétant aussi les découvertes astronomiques. L’imagination est sans limite, mais elle se façonne au miroir du monde réel, où l’homme se sent de plus en plus vulnérable. Géographe de la ville, amateur éclairé de science fiction, Alain Musset, nous fait partager sa passion encyclopédique pour un genre qui dit bien plus qu’il n’y paraît.

Summary:

Fictional accounts of the end of the world rarely explore the end of humanity; instead they present the end of what we now know and the opportunity to start over. Postapocalyptic Fiction and the Social Contract: 'We'll Not Go Home Again' contends that postapocalyptic fiction reflects one of our most basic political motivations and uses these fictional accounts to explore the move from the state of nature to civil society through a Hobbesian, a Lockean, and a Rousseauian lens.

Summary:

In this wide-ranging series of essays, an award-winning science fiction critic explores how the related genres of science fiction, fantasy, and horror evolve, merge, and finally “evaporate” into new and more dynamic forms. Beginning with a discussion of how literary readers “unlearned” how to read the fantastic during the heyday of realistic fiction, Gary K. Wolfe goes on to show how the fantastic reasserted itself in popular genre literature, and how these genres themselves grew increasingly unstable in terms of both narrative form and the worlds they portray. More detailed discussions of how specific contemporary writers have promoted this evolution are followed by a final essay examining how the competing discourses have led toward an emerging synthesis of critical approaches and vocabularies. The essays cover a vast range of authors and texts, and include substantial discussions of very current fiction published within the last few years.

Summary:

A Plague of Darkness sheds light upon the sense of quiet desperation currently devastating the children of our society: rich or poor; black, white, yellow and red. This plague, which we watch morph and transform itself into its differing forms every evening on our nightly news is an equal opportunity destroyer.During a cross-country plane trip, Payack penned A Plague of Darkness. To better illustrate (and encapsulate) the emotional toll this unseeable plague has wreaked upon the emotional lives of our children across the land, he further illustrated this essay with a series of some thirty 'collages' that will help you see the devastation through the minds (and eyes) of the children, which remain hopeful, above all. "Paul Payack's ability to blend the mediums of writing and pictorial art into a collage of prophetic insight is incredibly unique and provocative. A Plague of Darkness is a rich feast of mental and spiritual expression that will move your thinking to a higher plain." -Pastor Ron Pinkston, author, lecturer, and radio personality featured on A Day of New Beginnings. "The brief, almost bald, summation of crucial experience that attains its power through its stark reductiveness." -Sylvia L. Berkman, author of Blackberry Wilderness

Summary:

Much like the book of Revelation, Joel L. Watts' Praying in God's Theater aims to pull readers into a deeper spirituality to confront the daily struggles of Christian life. Drawing from the rich well of Christian mystics and theologians from across the ecumenical experience, Watts uses the Apocalypse to build a series of prayers and devotions aimed at increasing what he identifies as the contemplative unity and the certain unity between the individual and Christ. He urges a radical vision of the prayer and the sacrament of the Eucharist. Each chapter of Revelation is considered, explored, and finally used as a basis to draft prayers. Added to this is an application commentary that explores ancient liturgical practices similar to the scenes in Revelation while looking at Revelation in a mystical manner. Watts offers Revelation as an early liturgy, using this proposition as a catalyst for building prayers and a vision of life based on the Eucharist as the emblem of how we are to approach God. What emerges is a profound view on how we envision Scripture, prayer, and the book of Revelation.
