Spaceship Earth is the true, stranger-than-fiction, adventure of eight visionaries who in 1991 spent two years quarantined inside of a self-engineered biodome called BIOSPHERE 2. The experiment was a worldwide phenomenon, chronicling daily existence in the face of life-threatening ecological disaster and a growing criticism that it was nothing more than a cult. The bizarre story is both a cautionary tale and a hopeful lesson of how a small group of dreamers could potentially reimagine a new world.

Thousands of years from now, the human race has expanded throughout the galaxy, colonizing millions of worlds and creating myriads of bizarre new religious cults and sects. One of these worlds is Stohlson's Redemption, where the human settlers raise dinosaurs for their religious ceremonies. When the ten-year-old Kerryl Ryson creates an unseemly incident that upsets a visiting Important Person, his father is fed to a dinosaur - as an object lesson in politeness - and his remaining family are sold into slavery. For sixteen years Kerryl has plotted his revenge. Now, with the aid of a beautiful noblewoman, a time machine, a race of aliens who use the Mesozoic Era of Earth as a setting for adventure videos, and a stampede of ravaging dinosaurs, Kerryl gets his chance to even the interstellar score. But first he has to escape from several death sentences…In fact, he must come back from the dead! 1. Language: English. Narrator: Sergei Burbank.

A New York Times Book Review Notable Book, A Life's Work: On Becoming a Mother is multi-award-winning author Rachel Cusk's honest memoir that captures the life-changing wonders of motherhood. Selected by the New York Times as one of the 50 Best Memoirs of the Past 50 Years The experience of motherhood is an experience in contradiction. It is commonplace and it is impossible to imagine. It is prosaic and it is mysterious. It is at once banal, bizarre, compelling, tedious, comic, and catastrophic. To become a mother is to become the chief actor in a drama of human existence to which no one turns up. It is the process by which an ordinary life is transformed unseen into a story of strange and powerful passions, of love and servitude, of confinement and compassion. In a book that is touching, hilarious, provocative, and profoundly insightful, novelist Rachel Cusk attempts to tell something of an old story set in a new era of sexual equality. Cusk's account of a year of modern motherhood becomes many stories: a farewell to freedom, sleep, and time; a lesson in humility and hard work; a journey to the roots of love; a meditation on madness and mortality; and most of all a sentimental education in babies, books, toddler groups, bad advice, crying, breastfeeding, and never being alone. "Funny and smart and refreshingly akin to a war diary-sort of Apocalypse Baby Now...A Life's Work is wholly original and unabashedly true."-The New York Times Book Review

ggf. zzgl. Versand

Welcome to the long-awaited Haunted Liverpool 27 - which contains over 40 stories of the uncanny and the downright weird; a collection of strange, terrifying, and even romantic tales by Tom Slemen, one of England's premier writers and researchers of all things supernatural. In this astounding volume of weird stories you will hear of Trix, a bizarre paranormal entity who appears as a sinister jester at a certain place on Renshaw Street, the crazy case of two men who swapped their lives, and in this book you will also learn of the Everton Witch, who cursed and even killed people with her spells. There are also unearthly tales of a woman who could gauge the true nature of people - including Reggie Kray - by reading their auras, and there are some very strange accounts of disembodied legs that haunted a Fazakerley house, a cat that somehow became a beautiful teenaged girl, a radio in a Duke Street cafe which gave tomorrow's news, a terrifying phantom nun who stalks Knowsley, and most bizarre and disturbing of all - the "Gloater" - a creepy man who roams Anfield Cemetery, mocking the dead - till a couple of local men decided to teach him a lesson. You will also savour supernatural stories concerning the violent ghosts known as the Scotch Uncles, and a real-life shapeshifter which caused a Liverpool girl to have a nervous breakdown - and he's still out there. You will also find more accounts of local vampires in the amazing book, as well as a number of newly-documented timeslips, and a glimpse of a version of Liverpool where there are no men - and in addition to all this there are stories of some disturbing local cults - including the one that tried to sacrifice a young lady returning from a night out at the Paradox Club. 1.

The man couldn't help himself. His captor was the most beautiful woman he had ever seen. Her powerful eyes held his attention and made him forget that she had him confined in a basement; his hands and feet bound with duct tape. After getting past the terror and discomfort, he reasoned that there was nothing to worry about. He would be missed. He had loved ones who would call the police. All he had to do was wait. Letting this woman tell him a story was as good a stall as any. The mysterious woman wove a tale of betrayed love and unwanted, unnatural experiments placed upon her. Of a loving wife, working on a top secret government program. Of a husband searching for love in all the wrong places. The prisoner couldn't believe what he was being told. A descent into insanity, fueled by a jealous rage, ended with using the tools of science for torture and revenge. With every blink of her lovely eyes, licking of her full lips, and heaving of her perfect breasts, the captor told a story most bizarre. Of a woman bent on teaching her cheating husband a lesson. 1.

Annie Lyncroft knew her scheme was outrageous. She'd come to the elegant penthouse to meet Oliver Rain, the richest and possibly the most dangerous man in the Pacific Northwest. Annie needed this sensual, secretive corporate maverick for what she was about to propose. Marriage! With her brother Danny missing after a mysterious plane crash, Annie is struggling to protect his hot electronics company from the sharks who think he's not coming back. But fanciful, ethical Annie - who usually runs a bizarre bric-a-brac shop knows Danny's alive, and she's determined to keep his company safe by putting his biggest investor at the helm. When Oliver actually says yes to the marriage of convenience, Annie dreamily envisions a few platonic weeks of helping him become a sensitive New Age guy. Oliver has a different plan; his cold, gorgeous eyes have been watching Annie, and he sees his chance to seduce the beautiful schemer. Love is the wild card destined to teach these two strong-willed opposites a lesson: icy control might run the business world, but all hell is about to break loose in the passionate territory of the heart. 1.

The number-one New York Times best-selling author returns with this candid, humorous, and captivating memoir chronicling her journey toward reinvention and self-acceptance. When you've come out the other side of the bizarre, twisted world of the Playboy mansion, where do you land? If you're Holly Madison...there's no place like Las Vegas! After making the sudden decision to reclaim her life, Holly broke free from the sheltered, deceptive confines of the mansion (which meant exiting a hit television show) and was determined to start her life over...from scratch. Without the security of a job or a relationship, she set out to reinvent herself on no one's terms but her own. Deciding to roll the dice and begin again in the glamorous and dreamlike city of Las Vegas, Holly quickly realized that while she may have left her past in the rearview mirror, the labels and stereotypes that came from it weren't so quick to leave her. With a fierce commitment to take charge of her own narrative, Holly dives headfirst into a journey of self-discovery. After a whirlwind stint on Dancing with the Stars, she snags the coveted lead role in the Strip's hottest new burlesque spectacular and lands a reality series spotlighting her new life as a single woman. If her own television show and dream job as a showgirl aren't enough to keep her busy, Holly explores the decadent, exclusive inner world of Sin City, navigating its social and dating scene with humor and heart. When it comes to romance, she is met with an eclectic cast of characters, from fame hounds to long-distance loves to the occasional celebrity and more than one tabloid mishap. In this reflective, heartwarming memoir, Holly learns that each dating disaster holds an important - and, in some cases, difficult to face - lesson about herself. The Vegas Diaries is a comedy of errors set against the glitz and glamour of the dazzling Vegas Strip. Through the wild and crazy 1. Language: English. Narrator: Holly Madison.
