Owen Deathstalker doesn’t trust anyone, even his companions...especially his companions. But for the diplomatic mission to Mistworld, he’ll have to try. Representing the Golgotha underground, Owen hopes to bring the planet into the rebellion--their powerful psychic “espers” would be an invaluable asset. But that’s not Owen’s only reason for visiting Mistworld. In fact, everyone aboard the Sunstrider II has a secret agenda. While Owen looks for an information-gathering network that his father set up, all-too-perfect Jack Random seeks out former allies, volatile esper Jenny Psycho searches for information about her power, and ex-pirate Hazel d’Ark pursues an old vice. Of course, success won’t be easy and there’s little time to spare. The Empire’s recent esper attack already left Mistworld physically and politically exposed. Playing host to the leaders of the rebellion only makes the planet a juicier target and this time, the Empress will deploy her most ruthless weapon to crush Owen Deathstalker and the uprising, once and for all. Deathstalker: War is the third book in New York Times bestselling author Simon R. Green’s beloved space opera series.
Sarah Morgan Bryan Piatt (1836-1919) now ranks as the most important American woman poet of the nineteenth-century after Emily Dickinson. Published heavily in all the period's most prestigious journals, Piatt was widely celebrated by her peers as a gifted stylist in the genteel tradition. Palace-Burner, however, also reveals Piatt's other side: ironic, experimental, and pushing the limits of Victorian language, the sentimental female persona, and what women's poetry could say. Paula Bernat Bennett's astutely edited selection of Piatt's mature work--much of it never before collected--explains why her deviant poetics caused her peers such discomfort and why they remain such a fertile ground for study today. Paula Bernat Bennett is a professor of English at Southern Illinois University at Carbondale. She is the author of Poets in the Public Sphere: The Emancipatory Project of American Women's Poetry, 1800-1900, and other books.
Queer Early Modern
In Queer/Early/Modern, Carla Freccero, a leading scholar of early modern European studies, argues for a reading practice that accounts for the queerness of temporality, for the way past, present, and future time appear out of sequence and in dialogue in our thinking about history and texts. Freccero takes issue with New Historicist accounts of sexual identity that claim to respect historical proprieties and to derive identity categories from the past. She urges us to see how the indeterminacies of subjectivity found in literary texts challenge identitarian constructions and she encourages us to read differently the relation between history and literature. Contending that the term “queer,” in its indeterminacy, points the way toward alternative ethical reading practices that do justice to the aftereffects of the past as they live on in the present, Freccero proposes a model of “fantasmatic historiography” that brings together history and fantasy, past and present, event and affect. Combining feminist theory, queer theory, psychoanalysis, deconstruction, and literary criticism, Freccero takes up a series of theoretical and historical issues related to debates in queer theory, feminist theory, the history of sexuality, and early modern studies. She juxtaposes readings of early and late modern texts, discussing the lyric poetry of Petrarch, Louise Labé, and Melissa Ethridge; David Halperin’s take on Michel Foucault via Apuleius’s The Golden Ass and Boccaccio’s Decameron; and France’s domestic partner legislation in connection with Marguerite de Navarre’s Heptameron. Turning to French cleric Jean de Léry’s account, published in 1578, of having witnessed cannibalism and religious rituals in Brazil some twenty years earlier and to the twentieth-century Brandon Teena case, Freccero draws on Jacques Derrida’s concept of spectrality to propose both an ethics and a mode of interpretation that acknowledges and is inspired by the haunting of the present by the past.
The Absolute Value of Mike
Mike tries so hard to please his father, but the only language his dad seems to speak is calculus. And for a boy with a math learning disability, nothing could be more difficult. When his dad sends him to live with distant relatives in rural Pennsylvania for the summer to work on an engineering project, Mike figures this is his big chance to buckle down and prove himself. But when he gets there, nothing is what he thought it would be. The project has nothing at all to do with engineering, and he finds himself working alongside his wacky eighty-something- year-old aunt, a homeless man, and a punk rock girl as part of a town-wide project to adopt a boy from Romania. Mike may not learn anything about engineering, but what he does learn is far more valuable.

The Perilous Hunt
In the symbolic language of ballads, a lady's costly dress tells of the beauty of the body beneath it or of the wearer's happiness; a lost hawk or hound foreshadows the hunter's fate long before the plot reaches a turning point. In her original and far-reaching study of such familiar narrative elements, Edith Randam Rogers adds much to our understanding of poetic expression in the ballad tradition. In focusing on individual motifs as they appear in different ballads, different languages, and different periods, Rogers proves the existence of a reliable lingua franca of symbolism in European balladry. Lines or even whole stanzas that have defied interpretation often come to life when the reader is aware of the meaning of a particular motif in such an international vocabulary of images. Thus this book makes available important new critical tools sure to have significant results for ballad scholarship.
