Who is the Flash? Following the events of INFINITE CRISIS, Wally West is no longer the Fastest Man Alive. Instead, former Kid Flash Bart Allen has taken up the mantle, but why is Bart suddenly much older than he was before?
Prinsessan bodde i ett fasligt vackert slott tillsammans med sin pappa kungen och sin mamma drottningen och hundra hovdamer och lika många hovherrar. Några barn fanns det inte i hela slottet, för Lise-Lotta hade inga syskon, och drottningen trodde inte, att det gick an, att små prinsessor lekte med såna barn, som inte var prinsessor eller prinsar. Och eftersom Lise-Lotta aldrig såg några barn, så trodde hon att det bara fanns stora människor i världen och så hon själv, som var liten. Prinsessan Lise-lotta bor på ett slott fyllt med alla slags leksaker man kan tänka sig. Trots det tycker hon inte om att leka. Det är inte förrän hon träffar den jämnåriga flickan Maja, och hennes träklump till docka, som hon upptäcker lekens förtrollande kraft. Novellen Prinsessan som inte ville leka utkom första gången 1949 i samlingen Nils Karlsson Pyssling.
Manhattan is the tale of a young French scholar who travels to the United States in 1965 on a Fulbright Fellowship to consult the manuscripts of beloved authors. In Yale University's Beinecke Library, tantalized by the conversational and epistolary brilliance of a fellow researcher, she is lured into a picaresque and tragic adventure. Meanwhile, back in France, her children and no-nonsense mother await her return. A young European intellectual's first contact with America and the city of New York are the background of this story. The experience of Manhattan haunts this labyrinth of a book as, over a period of thirty-five years, its narrator visits and revisits Central Park and a half-buried squirrel, the Statue of Liberty and a never again to be found hotel in the vicinity of Morningside Heights: a journey into memory in which everything is never the same. Traveling from library to library, France to the United States, Shakespeare to Kafka to Joyce, Manhattan deploys with gusto all the techniques for which Cixous's fiction and essays are known: rapid juxtapositions of time and place, narrative and description, analysis and philosophical reflection. It investigates subjects Cixous has spent her life probing: reading, writing, and the "omnipotence-other" seductions of literature; a family's flight from Nazi Germany and postcolonial Algeria; childhood, motherhood, and, not least, the strange experience of falling in love with, as Jacques Derrida writes, "a counterfeit genius."
A Short story from Matt Shaw, the author of "The Missing Years of Thomas Pritchard" No parent should have to bury their own child and yet that was exactly what they had to do.
Stillborn; a young boy never to open his eyes to take in the world around him. And now Lucy and Jack's marriage was on the verge of crumbling under the strain of the grief they struggled to cope with. A grief made worse when the doctors tell them they'll never be able to have a child of their own due to complications from the last pregnancy. But what if it didn't have to be that way? What if there was a way of using science and technology to create a son they could love? What if Jack was able to use Artificial Intelligence to create A Boy: Built to Love? Is the answer to their problems to be found within the world of science-fiction or are they setting themselves up for yet more grief and sadness?
