I det viktorianska London har något fasansfullt väckts till liv efter att ha spenderat århundraden i mörker. Dess första ord är ”Törst!” Jona blir det första offret. Bettet förvandlar honom gradvis till en vampyr, men bara för att göra honom till en slav, till en mördare av nödtvång. Han rör sig i natten, genom gatorna i Paris och London, bland fattiga och prostituerade. Han brottas med sin blodtörst och sitt samvete. Han brottas med den existentiella krisen inför att upphöra - som människa. Läs: http://www.provlas.se/bladdra/9789188... Hemsida: http://mikaelmansen.se/romaner%20och%...
"Steampunk action that starts with a jump and never lets up!" - D.J. Butler, author of THE KIDNAP PLOT and WITCHY EYE On the scorched world of Schism, all life survives in huge trenches, protected from the heat of the torrid sun. In these chasms, human colonists often find themselves at odds with the indigenous humanoids called Spiders. Jake’s airship, powered by ancient technology, takes advantage of the unique terrain, but makes him valuable to both sides of local warring tribes. The captain and crew of the Sky Turtle are forced to risk everything in a fight between these followers of opposing elemental magics. If they fail, it could cost them everything.
Schism is a planet divided physically, racially, and politically. In this difficult environment with limited energy resources, steam power is often the best adaptation.
Will it be enough to combat the arcane and alien forces using them as a pawn in an age-old war?
The work of Charles Bird King, George Catlin, and Karl Bodmer looms large in the field of history, ethnology, and anthropology. No serious study of American Indian people can be undertaken without reference to it, and yet the names of these three men are largely unknown to the general public. Although King, Catlin, and Bodmer worked independently of one another, they were united in a singular vision: all were dedicated to preserving the various cultures of American Indian people through their artwork and writings. Native Americans: A Portrait presents for the first time in one volume a major selection of the original drawings, paintings, and lithographs by these three artists. More than 300 striking full-color reproductions take the reader to the American frontier to experience Indians in their original environment - performing religious ceremonies, hunting buffalo, engaging in bloody battles, and simply living their lives. Also included are dozens of magnificent portraits of the most prominent Indian leaders of the day. The accompanying text by noted scholar Robert J. Moore, Jr., describes the powerful political currents of the 1830s that led to the forced removal of the Indian tribes, while original quotes from the artists themselves offer invaluable insights into nineteenth-century white American culture.
