A series of suspicious deaths in a retirement home draws Nameless into the confidence of a terrified former resident - and into the dark heart of a shocking conspiracy. In part five of the Nameless series, it's time to hunt. Oakshore Park is Michigan's most exclusive assisted-living community. Presided over by two killer angels of mercy, it's also THE go-to facility in assisted dying. For a cut, they make impatient heirs happy. Nameless must concoct a scheme just as cunning. But righteous retribution stirs disquiet in the avenger as light starts to shine on the black hole of his past. Should he welcome it or keep running? From number one New York Times best-selling author Paul Mccusker comes The Mercy of Snakes, part of Nameless, a riveting collection of short stories about a vigilante nomad, stripped of his memories and commissioned to kill. Follow him in each story, which can be listened to in a single sitting.

As a musician who grew up in New Orleans, and later worked in New York with the major swing orchestras of Lucky Millinder and Cab Calloway, Barker is uniquely placed to give an authoritative but personal view of jazz history. In this book he discusses his life in music, from the children's 'spasm' bands of the seventh ward of New Orleans, through the experience of brass bands and jazz funerals involving his grandfather, Isidore Barbarin, to his early days on the road with the blues singer Little Brother Montgomery. Later he goes on to discuss New York, and the jazz scene he found there in 1930. His work with Jelly Roll Morton, as well as the lesser-known bands of Fess Williams and Albert Nicholas, is covered before a full account of his years with Millinder, Benny Carter and Calloway, including a description of Dizzy Gillespie's impact on jazz, is given. The final chapters discuss Barker's career from the late 1940s. Starting with the New York dixieland scene at Ryan's and Condon's he talks of his work with Wilbur de Paris, James P. Johnson and This is Jazz, before discussing his return to New Orleans and New Orleans Jazz Museum. A collection of Barker's photographs,

An unknown hand seems to have directed the astonishing, other-worldly experiences revealed by author, Sarah Delano, in On The Way to My Funeral. Like ocean waves that are guided by an unseen force to crash and break upon the jagged rocks of the Maine coast, altered time events came crashing through the veils of normal consciousness; breaking apart ordinary concepts of time and space…life and death, leaving the author forever altered. Nothing during the idyllic childhood she enjoyed during the 40’s and 50’s in the safety and simplicity of Boothbay Harbor, Maine, hinted at the events that would follow in the world beyond the limits of her hometown. In a skillful, unadorned style of writing Ms. Delano speaks of the unspeakable: rape on the high seas, war in the Middle East, living future segments of her life before they happened, past life experiences, and a near-death event…all of which turned the beliefs of her simple childhood upside down. In the recounting of these events and more, Ms. Delano invites readers to examine their own lives and beliefs: to hold themselves somehow accountable in a universe for which there is no accounting.

This pamphlet or booklet is a humble attempt by the author to shine the light of Al-Islaam, the Holy Qur'an and the language of Imaam W. Deen Mohammed on the Book of Revelations. It is my sincere belief that the Holy Scriptures are interconnected and that the Holy Qur'an is the last chapter and the key to understanding all scriptures. The Islamic faith in my opinion is the New Zion. In this book I use the spelling Imaam for Imam, Islaam for Islam because I believe it gives the novice a better sense of how the words should be pronounced.

An Israeli professor and an Arab student join forces in a witty novel that “tells a simple story about a region that complicates all it touches” (The New Yorker). Yochanan Rivlin, a professor at Haifa University, is a man of boundless and often naïve curiosity. His wife, Hagit, a district judge, is tolerant of almost everything but her husband’s faults and prevarications. Frequent arguments aside, they are a well-adjusted couple with two grown sons. When one of Rivlin’s students—a young Arab bride from a village in the Galilee—is assigned to help with his research in recent Algerian history, a two-pronged mystery develops. As they probe the causes of the bloody Algerian civil war, Rivlin also becomes obsessed with his son’s failed marriage. Rivlin’s search leads to a number of improbable escapades. In this comedy of manners, at once deeply serious and highly entertaining, Yehoshua brilliantly portrays characters from disparate sectors of Israeli life, united above all by a very human desire for, and fear of, the truth in politics and life.

The book is about Americans in love in Peru in 1973-74, when Watergate preoccupied everybody back home, when Allende had just been overthrown in Chile, and things weren't very stable around or between the characters. The title refers to their garden gate in Cuzco, which had a stone lintel with twin serpents. He took it as a propitious sign for renewal of their love, since the snake meant good luck and prosperity for the Incas. Of course in Eden it meant the opposite, an ambiguity he appreciated as he reported on the aftermath of the Allende coup and the return of Peron, whiile trying to make it as a foreign correpondent so he could be with Liz, a photographer based in Cuzco. Peru seemed stable by comparison to DC, an inversion of the usual political stability of North versus South America, but in impoverished Ayacucho Province a Maoist rebel group, Sendero Luminoso, had arisen and Liz had been taking photos there the summer before, creating problems with the government they didn't need in addition to personal concerns with free love and open marriage, black market and stolen art, so chaos inside their gate as well as outside.

Thirteen young people, all college students were arrested in 1944 in Moscow by the Soviet State security. They were charged with an attempt to assassinate Stalin. All of them were sentenced to different terms of forced labor in GULAG and three of them paid with their lives. A participant and a survivor of this affair, Victor Levenstein, tells us about this so called case in his memoir. The majority of the arrested were “children of the enemies of the People” – their parents where victims of Stalin’s purges of nineteen thirties. Their friendship began in the early school years in the privileged school in Moscow, where children of Stalin, Molotov and Soviet cultural elite where among the students. The State security learned about this group of independently thinking young people and fabricated a case of “The anti-Soviet terrorist youth group planning comrade Stalin’s assassination”. During the investigation the majority of the arrested were subjected to the physical and psychological torture. They “confessed” to the anti-Soviet activity and seven of them to the preparation of the assassination of Stalin. Interrogators concocted an adventure story of the assassination preparations featuring an apartment from the window of which the “villains” were going to shoot Stalin. The book tells us about the interrogations in the infamous Lubianka, State Security prison where Mr. Levenstein and his friends spent almost a year. The machinery of the interrogation techniques is described in detail, explaining how they were forced to implicate themselves. We learn about the life in interrogation and transitional prisons, labor camps and exile, about the fascinating people the author came across on his “journey”. One of them was Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn, whom the author met at Ekibastus penal camp – the camp, where the action of Solzhenitsyn’s novel “One day in life of Ivan Denisovich” takes place. The Russian version of the book “Tobacco smoke over the bunks…” was published in Moscow in 2009 by the prestigious publishing house “Russki Put’”. The book presentation at the Solzhenitsyn’s library-foundation was a significant cultural event in Moscow. The Russian TV dedicated a segment to it on the channel “Kul’tura” (Culture) and on the Sunday program “News of the week”. Radio broadcasts were also dedicated to the book including a program on the radio station “Liberty” for broadcast to Europe. Several positive book reviews were published in the Russian press. A condensed version of the book appeared in the Russian language literary and political magazine “Continent”, published in Moscow and Paris. In the preface to the published chapters the magazine’s editorial board wrote: “Victor Levenstein’s narration supplements books of A. Solzhenitsyn, V. Shalamov, E. Ginzburg with new very important details and facts, helping us imagine and understand the criminal machinery of repression created by Lenin and Stalin.”

 The literature on snakes is manifold but overwhelmingly centered on the natural sciences. Little has been published about them in the fields of popular culture or the history of medicine. Focusing primarily on American culture and history from the 1800s, this study draws on a wide range of sources—including newspaper archives, medical journals, and archives from the Smithsonian Institute—to examine the complex relationship between snakes and humans.
