He comes to me in the night; I don't know his name or what he looks like; just his scent, his feel, his touch. Tamara is a young kindergarten school teacher who has moved to get away from a relationship that went south. She's barely settled into her new home when the visits from her night creeper begins.
She knows it's wrong, she senses the danger; but she's never felt anything like this one man can make her feel.
"A fantastic and monumental contribution to our field." √ Ralph M. Reitan, PhD The field of neuropsychology has many specialized books on particular diseases, but there is always a need for a general text to cover the major aspects of neuropsychology from neuroanatomy to assessment to practice issues. This is one such book that attempts to provide comprehensive coverage of the field." --Doody's In the last decade, the number of books, courses, training opportunities, and journals dealing with clinical neuropsychology has greatly increased. Demand for a complete reference in the field is growing as practitioners in private practice, the court system, and the medical field continue to make discoveries and advance our knowledge of the brain system and how it affects our everyday lives. In order to address this urgent need, Drs. Horton and Wedding have edited this Third Edition of the classic Neuropsychology Handbook. In its pages are reviews of all the major areas in which clinical neuropsychologists work: the foundations of clinical neuropsychology brain structure and function neurological disorders psychiatric disorders diagnostic decision-making symptom validity testing neuroimaging behavioral change following traumatic brain injury disability determination rehabilitation planning, and more Very specialized areas of practice such as clinical neuropsychology with children, clinical neurotoxicology, and neuropsychological assessment in criminal law cases also receive chapters.
Londra è una città fantasma. I pochi che non hanno voluto − o non hanno potuto – dare seguito all’ordine d’evacuazione del governo, sono barricati in casa, nella vana speranza che tutto quello che stanno vivendo sia un incubo da cui presto si sveglieranno. Ma è tutto reale. Perché sono reali le vetrine infrante, i negozi saccheggiati, i cadaveri lasciati per strada. E, soprattutto, sono reali le bande di uomini assetati di sangue che, dopo essere comparsi all’improvviso dal nulla, stanno mettendo a ferro e fuoco la città e alcuni suoi sobborghi. Uomini che continuano ad arrivare senza sosta, come l’onda di piena di un fiume immenso. Un fiume che ha la sua sorgente all’Inferno, come sanno bene John Camp ed Emily Loughty.
Dopo il loro ultimo «viaggio» nel mondo dei Dannati, infatti, i varchi interdimensionali non soltanto si sono moltiplicati, ma sono anche rimasti aperti, portando letteralmente l’Inferno in Terra e catapultando centinaia d’innocenti «dall’altra parte». E c’è solo una persona che sa come chiudere per sempre le Porte delle Tenebre: Paul Loomis, l’ex capo di Emily. Purtroppo Paul Loomis è morto, si è suicidato sette anni fa, dopo aver ucciso la moglie e l’amante di lei con due colpi di fucile.
Ma Emily e John sanno dove trovarlo e come mettersi in contatto con lui. Perché lo hanno già incontrato all’Inferno…
The following are excerpts from "Frustrated Young Men: A Collection of Short Fiction" by John O'Brien: Sometimes he could feel his mind burning, ripe with ideas, each thought rolling around like slick mercury eating through the top of his skull. He would ride the train home from work and feel each precious thought smoking like raw egg fallen on a gas burner. As he closed the door to his apartment and hung his jacket, they would already be half gone like the afterimage of a sunset against his closed eyelids, floating and translucent, and lost when he sat down late every night, after a long day of nothing, to type and write and rhapsodize about his own stupidity.
- from "The Writer"I figured if I played cards with her, if I talked to her, if I cared about her, then maybe. It's funny. Though I didn't know in the beginning, as long as I've known her she's been sick. You begin to wonder if you'd like them if they weren't sick. If their sickness is what keeps you there. Are you their friend who has stuck with them to help them through their sickness or does their sickness make you their friend? - from "Dinner with Caitlin McRay"The question to ask yourself is, does the fact that it is all cliche, that it has all been done before and will be done again, better and more fully, does that make loving Jen so passionately, so violently, somehow ? Does the fact that every teenager probably falls in love with the first person they have sex with decrease the strength of my own feeling? Can I still find sanctity and validity in this thing called love? And more importantly, did she love me? - from "Toby Grey"
Forgiveness is an essential part of being a Christian. But what do we do when confronted with the unforgivable-an act that shakes our moral foundations to their roots, often committed by someone trusted and loved? Murder, sexual abuse, adultery-all leave lifelong wounds and all are unforgivable trespasses that through the grace of God can be forgiven.
Dr. David Stoop compassionately guides us along the course of heartfelt forgiveness, freeing us to apply the biblical teachings that have already changed thousands of lives.
