Sur la planète Mars, en 2541. Quatre adolescents vivent dans un Eden mystérieux, mi-paradis mi-prison, avec pour seule compagnie une étrange gouvernante. Ils mènent une existence sans heurt jusqu'au jour où ils décident de quitter ce cocon pour explorer le monde. Sur leur chemin: un lac noir, une pyramide maya, des ogres, mais aussi un agent du Comité d'Ethique Mondial et un savant fou à qui ils doivent la vie. Pour les quatre héros, l'aventure se transforme peu à peu en parcours initiatique et en quête des origines.
De cette épreuve, ils ne sortiront pas indemnes... Entre fantastique et science- fiction, ce roman fascinant, récompensé par de nombreux prix, s'interroge sur le progrès scientifique et redessine les contours de l'humain.
Chicago, 1899. A city known for vice and violence welcomes a new show to town: the Daughters of Aphrodite Lyric Opera. Despite being branded "obscene" by the press and civic leaders - or perhaps partly because of it - their performances are a hit. Almost 18 and not yet married, Constance defies the will of her parents and sneaks out to see for herself what all the fuss is about. She will come to discover that the troupe's leader, the fear, gifted and enigmatic Victoria da Vinci, is a woman with big ideas, big secrets and a complex past. Constance soon finds herself immersed in a world of danger and mystery . . . and must make a choice. 50% historical fiction, 25% sci-fi and 25% adventure-fantasy, Dicing Time for Gladness captures the conflicted spirit of turn-of-the-century America in a time of bound optimism and deep uncertainty.
Written by an attorney with over 30 years of experience in the music industry, Music Publishing: The Complete Guide is the definitive manual on music copyright. Whereas many books on the subject are aimed at artists and songwriters, this book will serve as a thorough guide for industry pros, lawyers, and music business and law students. Subjects covered include copyright; performing rights organizations; mechanical, synchronization, and print licensing; songwriter and composer agreements; publishing administration and foreign sub-publishing; production music libraries; pitching and placement companies; sampling; and much more. The discussion also delves into historical perspective and current trends and revenue opportunities in the evolving digital marketplace. Easy-to-read narratives explain the key points for all of these types of deals. There are many sample agreements included in the book, all annotated in simple terms that explain the often complex contract language. There are also links to copyright and publishing resources, listings of foreign performance and mechanical societies, and anecdotes and case studies from real world incidents. If you're looking for a thorough grounding and go-to reference book on music copyright, not just a quick crash course, your search is over. "Steve's Music Publishing text is fantastic. It is personal, practical, and even includes excellent real world case studies. Furthermore, the helpful agreement annotations and comments are a most excellent resource for breaking down agreement language and terms for the reader. His knowledge, experience, and sense of humor make this the best music publishing text I've read.
I will be using Steve's book as the official text for our Music Publishing course at The University of Colorado Denver's Music Industry Program. All those interested in learning more about music publishing or having a sharp reference text should get this book!"---Benom Plumb, Assist

Aquellos que acuden a la filosofía para que les guíe en su proyecto vital deben ser advertidos: sin duda el saber filosófico puede iluminar y hacer que la persona mejore, pero también puede desorientar, confundir y, a la postre, aniquilar. Ya lo dijo Descartes: «Las almas más grandes son tan capaces de los peores vicios como de las mayores virtudes». Lamentablemente, la vida de la razón no necesariamente conduce a una vida razonable... Este libro analiza los peligros y desvaríos de la filosofía a través de la vida de ocho filósofos de talla gigantesca: Rousseau, Schopenhauer, Nietzsche, Russell, Wittgenstein, Heidegger, Sartre y Foucault. Con un tono agudo y desenfadado, muestra cómo el propio comportamiento del filósofo —unas veces incorrecto, otras ciertamente lamentable, y en ocasiones absolutamente demencial—, guarda con demasiada frecuencia una estrecha relación con sus teorías.
Thomas Hardy – The Short Stories - An Introduction. Many giants of Literature originate from the shores of these emerald isles; Shakespeare, Dickens, Chaucer, The Brontës and Austen to which most people would willingly add the name Thomas Hardy.
Far From The Madding Crowd, Tess Of The D'Urbervilles, The Mayor Of Casterbridge are but three of his literary masterpieces. But let us add to this his short stories. They are often overlooked as being the poor, under-developed relative of a greater work. But from writers of the calibre of Hardy this is just not so. He picks stories and creates characters that drive, meld and create pages that in their numerically shorter length are in fact the perfect length. Our stories are read for you by Richard Mitchley.
