Small-town librarian Ophelia Jensen is finally starting to embrace her lot as one of the "chosen"—a psychic and folk magick practitioner, a.k.a. a witch.
Expert loving guidance from her magickally adept grandmother Abby helps—and adopting Tink, an exceptionally talented teenage medium, has given Ophelia's life new purpose .
. . until a brutal murder clouds the sunshine of their days. Ophelia's co-worker and best friend, Darci, is distraught when her cousin is implicated in the small Iowa town of Summerset's most recent murder—the violent death of a biker.
Unfortunately for Darci's cousin, it's her fingerprints all over the murder weapon. She claims she's innocent, but it'll take Ophelia and Abby more than a good incantation or two to get to the bottom of this crime—what with ghosts, crooked cops, secret identities, and a small army of outlaw bikers thrown into this devil's brew.
The first biography of one of the finest and most bohemian British poets of the twentieth century. Eliot wrote of his "genius". Yeats thought him the most interesting poet of his generation. Dylan Thomas envied his power over women. This biography of George Barker (1913-91) offers both a portrait of a talented, tormented and irresistibly entertaining man, and a who's who of the British literary world in the 20th century.
The novelist, poet, and essayist W. G. Sebald (1944 2001) was perhaps the most original German writer of the last decade of the 20th century ( Die Ausgewanderten, Austerlitz, Luftkrieg und Literatur ). His writing is marked by a unique hybridity that combines characteristics of travelogue, cultural criticism, crime story, historical essay, and dream diary, among other genres. He employs layers of literary and motion picture allusions that contribute to a sometimes enigmatic, sometimes intimately familiar mood; his dominant mode is melancholy. The contributions of this anthology examine W. G. Sebald as narrator and pensive observer of history. The book includes a previously unpublished interview with Sebald from 1998.
