50 Voices of Disbelief: Why We Are Atheists presents a collection of original essays drawn from an international group of prominent voices in the fields of academia, science, literature, media and politics who offer carefully considered statements of why they are atheists. Features a truly international cast of contributors, ranging from public intellectuals such as Peter Singer, Susan Blackmore, and A.C. Grayling, novelists, such as Joe Haldeman, and heavyweight philosophers of religion, including Graham Oppy and Michael Tooley Contributions range from rigorous philosophical arguments to highly personal, even whimsical, accounts of how each of these notable thinkers have come to reject religion in their lives Likely to have broad appeal given the current public fascination with religious issues and the reception of such books as The God Delusion and The End of Faith

Ein Mystery-Thriller mit Sogwirkung ... In Violet Whites verschlafenem Küstenort ist nicht viel los – bis River West in Violets Gästehaus einzieht. Plötzlich wird ein Phantom gesichtet, Kinder verschwinden und ein Mann bringt sich um. Hat River damit zu tun? Er weicht jeder Frage über seine Vergangenheit aus. Violets Großmutter hat sie vor dem Teufel gewarnt – aber dass er ein Junge sein könnte, der viel Kaffee trinkt, gerne in der Sonne schläft und Violet auf dem Friedhof so küsst, dass man zurückküssen möchte – das hat sie nicht gesagt. Während der Horror eskaliert, verliebt sich Violet so heftig, dass sie River nicht mehr widerstehen kann – und genau das ist seine Absicht ...

The Humanism of Doctor Who

A Critical Study in Science Fiction and Philosophy

From 1963 to 1989, the BBC television program Doctor Who followed a time-traveling human-like alien called “The Doctor” as he sought to help people, save civilizations and right wrongs. Since its 2005 revival, Doctor Who has become a pop culture phenomenon surpassing its “classic” period popularity and reaching a larger, more diverse audience. Though created as a family program, the series has dramatized serious themes in philosophy, science, religion, and politics. Doctor Who’s thoughtful presentation of a secular humanist view of the universe stands in stark contrast to the flashy special effects central to most science fiction on television. This examination of Doctor Who from the perspective of philosophical humanism assesses the show’s careful exploration of such topics as justice, ethics, good and evil, mythology and knowledge.

Theodore Powys's Gods and Demons

The life of Theodore Francis Powys, the man and the writer (1875–1953), is a story of determined withdrawal from the contemporary world. While his two literary brothers John Cowper and Llewellyn travelled a great deal abroad, Theodore, after early unsuccessful attempts to join the active world, settled into a sedentary life in a remote rural part of Dorset. In his retreat, protected from the outside world by his omnipresent hills, Powys constructed a world, half-real and half-imaginary, in which the man and the writer, reality and fancy and past and present coexisted and sometimes merged. For Powys, fear in its various manifestations, as fear of God, of evil, of death and of self, was a powerful incentive to write and a source of inspiration for almost everything remarkable in his writings. It did not take Powys long to realize that allegory was a literary genre better suited to his literary leanings and peculiar turn of mind than the realism of his early novel-writing ventures. Under the combined influence of the Bible, Bunyan and Hawthorne, he adapted allegory to his specific literary purpose. In that regard, two distinctive aspects of his allegorical stories, namely supernatural visitors and animal symbolism, generally overlooked by his critics, deserve close attention, and are the special focus of this book. Few writers have been so strongly and avowedly marked by so many literary and philosophical influences as Powys. These range from the Bible, Bunyan and Hawthorne to Darwin, Hardy, Lawrence and Freud. However, Powys’s short stories, fables and novels also stand as a unique and original achievement. Indeed, the influence he himself exerted on some novelists of the younger generation, such as William Golding, testifies to the power and originality of his writings.

Dennis Wheatley (* 8. Januar 1897; + 10. November 1977) war einer der bekanntesten und erfolgreichsten englischen Autoren des Okkult-Horror-Romans. Er sagte über seinen Roman Diener der Finsternis:"Sollte sich irgendwer unter meinen Lesern zu einem ernsthaften Studium dieses Gebietes entschließen, so fühle ich mich dazu verpflichtet, ihn nachdrücklich davor zu warnen, sich in irgendeiner Form an der Ausübung der Schwarzen Kunst zu beteiligen (oder beteiligen zu lassen). Meine eigenen Beobachtungen haben mich zu der sicheren Überzeugung geführt, dass er sich ansonsten Gefahren einer überaus realen und konkreten Natur aussetzt."Diener der Finsternis wurde im Jahr 1967 von dem legendären Hammer-Studio verfilmt (deutscher Verleihtitel: Die Braut des Teufels, Regie: Terence Fisher), mit Christopher Lee als Herzog von Richleau, Niké Arrighi als Tanith Carlisle, Leon Greene als Rex Van Ryn und Sarah Lawson als Marie Eaton. Der Roman erscheint als durchgesehene Neuausgabe in der Reihe APEX HORROR.

NEW UPDATED EDITION celebrating 50 years of Dr Who. Who Goes There is the sequel to Nick’s hugely popular Doctor Who memoir, Dalek I Loved You. It’s a travel book with Doctor Who at its core. Nick travels England and Wales, seeking locations used in the show, both Classic (pre-relaunch) and New. Being an odd kind of show, its locations too are odd. This is no glamorous trip. Dungeness Nuclear Power Station, anyone? A flooded china clay pit in Cornwall? As he travels, so Nick discovers another side to our well-trodden country, which is no less evocative. Then he goes to the pub. As in Dalek I Loved You, the travel writing is backed up by Nick’s childhood reminiscences and contemporary musings. A companion website offers photographs from the trip, a Google map of the locations and details of the nearest pub. In this innovative way, readers are invited to follow in his footsteps. Scariest of all, given two other books in the pipeline (both humour books, for Arcturus Publishing), Nick has just 21 days in which to write it. Really. Who Goes There isn’t just for Who fans – it’s for anyone who fancies a trip off the beaten path. And a very funny book.
