Mariana Maniscalco was living a typical teenage life, when she was blindsided by a rare bacterial infection that ran wild in her body, resulting in a massive stroke, three brain surgeries and open-heart surgery. It was a one-in-a-million unlucky break. But Mariana is a one-in-a-million girl. She handled her nightmare with uncommon grace, insight and humor that will leave you laughing and crying. How many people, while being rolled into the operating room for open-heart surgery, would be leading the doctors in a rousing chorus of "Mr. Sandman?" "If Your Head Can't, Your Heart Will . . . But What If That's Broken Too" is an amazing story about survival, love and an appreciation for the little things that make life so precious.
The Broken Heart Curse
Author: Elizabeth Samedi
The year is 2065. The religious landscape has changed. In the House of the Gods, there can be only one Dominate God. That God is chosen by how many worshipers a God has. And now due to the power and riches it brings Satanic worship dominates the World. As the Dominate God, Satan has chosen five families, who own both powerful Curses and Churches, to lead his worshipers. But that honor is not without risk. The chosen five must pay a yearly debt of souls to their Lord. That debt is paid during a special celebration call the Festival of Souls. Judge Ronald Hendrickson is one of the leaders of the Church of Satan, his curse the Broken Heart is considered by many to be the most powerful of the five Curses of Satan. Now, Hendrickson and the other Church Leaders are in danger of losing their status and lives because of a powerful spell caller by the name of Justin Maurice Pettyford. He has been blessed with extraordinary spell making gifts by the other Gods, who want to end Satan’s reign in the House of the Gods. To save mankind from Satan’s rule Justin and his twin brother Jonah will have to use Justin’s relationship with the other Gods to restore the religious landscape to what it has always been.

Long considered Nobel Prize winner Doris Lessing’s best collection of short stories, African Stories—a central book in the work of a truly beloved writer—is now back in print. This beautiful collection is an homage to her twenty-five years spent in Africa and a brilliant portrait of African life. This is Doris Lessing’s Africa—where she lived for twenty-five years and where so much of her interest and concern still resides. Here in these stories, Lessing explores the complexities, the agonies and joys, and the textures of life in Africa. First published in 1965, and out of print since the 1990s, this collection contains much of Ms. Lessing’s most extraordinary work. It is a brilliant portrait of a world that is vital to all of us—perceived by an artist of the first rank writing with passion and honesty about her native land. African Stories includes every story Doris Lessing has written about Africa: all of her first collection, This Was the Old Chief’s Country; the four tales about Africa from Five; the African stories from The Habit of Loving and A Man and Two Women; and four stories featured only in this edition. African Stories represents some of Doris Lessing’s best work—and is an essential book by one of the twentieth century’s most important authors.

Many scientific papers and popular articles have been written on the topic of space tourism, describing everything from expected market sizes to the rules of 3-dimensional microgravity football. But what would it actually feel like to be a tourist in space, to be hurled into orbit on top of a controlled explosion, to float around in a spacecraft, and to be able to look down on your hometown from above the atmosphere? Space tourism is not science fiction anymore, Michel van Pelt tells us, but merely a logical step in the evolution of space flight. Space is about to be opened up to more and more people, and the drive behind this is one of the most powerful economic forces: tourism. Van Pelt describes what recreational space travel might look like, and explains the required space technology, the medical issues, astronaut training, and the possibilities of holidays to destinations far, far away. This is a book for everyone who has ever dreamed of traveling to space: a dream which, according to van Pelt, may not be so far from becoming a reality. Consider it the armchair traveler's guide to the coming boom in space tourism.
