Transgressive fiction authors write stories some are afraid to tell. Stories with taboo subjects, unique voices, shocking images-nothing safe or dry. Burnt Tongues is a collection of transgressive stories hand-selected by Chuck Palahniuk, author of Fight Club, as the best of The Cult Workshop, his official fan website, selected by a rigorous nomination and vetting process. These stories run the gamut from horrific and fantastic to humorous and touching, but each leaves a lasting impression. Some may say even a scar.

Discover a remarkable reimagining of Sarai's plight in Egypt, where she humbly set aside her own honor to protect the man through whom all the nations of the earth would be blessed. Study questions for small groups are available on the author's official website. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Tonya J Williams.

ZiiLABS is a wholly owned subsidiary of Creative Technology formed when the Personal Digital Entertainment division merged with subsidiary 3DLabs in January 2009. The official announcement came at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, Nevada, where ZiiLABS also unveiled its first product, the ARM based ZMS-05. Prior to the unveiling at CES, Creative generated buzz with a mysterious website promising a "stemcell-like" processor which would give a 100-fold increase in supercomputing power over current technology as well as advances in consumer three-dimensional graphics. The new ZMS-05 is rumored to be powering Creative's first touchscreen player, the Creative Zii. In November 2009, ZiiLABS introduced the ZMS-08 chip. The ZMS-08 has an onboard ARM Cortex A8 processor clocked at 1.0 GHz. Among the other notable upgrades from the ZMS-05 are the abilities to output to 1080p HD, encode and decode at 720p, Adobe Flash 10 support, and OpenGL 2.0 ES support.

THERE’S A NEW REASON TO BE AFRAID OF THE DARK. A sci-fi/horror sleeper hit that birthed a franchise and launched the career of a new action movie icon, Pitch Black holds its own today as a nerve-shredding creature-feature in which the monsters outside finally meet their match against a monster within. When an intergalactic transport ship crashes on a remote desert planet with no sign of help on the horizon, the survivors, led by Fry (Radha Mitchell), band together to find a way back home. Among the passengers is Riddick (Vin Diesel), a convicted murderer being transported by marshal Johns (Cole Hauser) – and now freed of his chains and on the loose. But as a solar eclipse plunges the planet into total darkness, a threat even worse than Riddick reveals itself, and the last humans standing may have to form an uneasy truce with the cunning fugitive (whose eyes have been surgically altered to see in the dark) to last the long night. Boasting crackerjack direction and a whip-smart script by David Twohy, as well as a star-making performance by Diesel, Riddick’s first outing is freshly unleashed in an illuminating, brand new 4K restoration, with hours of exclusive bonus content.

I do not ask the wounded person how he feels, I myself become the wounded person.” (Walt Whitman, Song of Myself) This poignant verse illuminates the essence of what it is to be an empath. This extraordinary ability allows empaths to gain deep insight into the people and world around them. Through sharing the emotions of others, empaths can form intimate and strong connections. They are often sought out because of their uncanny ability to identify with people and are known as good listeners. Their energy soothes and quiets with its healing nature. This is the external empath, the one the world sees and to whom is drawn. The internal empath is often a different picture entirely. Their emotions rise and fall with those around them. In many ways, they are like a ship on the sea, being buffeted by waves from all directions. The emotional rollercoaster can take a toll on an empath. Their desire to help and support those whose feelings are as palpable as their own drives them to sacrifice their own well-being. Swamped in a miasma of emotional baggage that doesn’t belong to them, they struggle to maintain balance against the tide that threatens to overwhelm their ability to identify and cope with their own emotions. It is a daily struggle to keep the world at a distance without becoming isolated within themselves. Fortunately, balance can be found and maintained. Meditation is the foundation for an empath's emotional well-being. In this audiobook, we will explore common traits of empaths and some of the issues they frequently face. We will lay the first level to your empathic foundation by discussing basic meditation and the benefits you will receive through it. Following the basics, we’ll build another layer of your foundation with several techniques to augment the meditation that is specifically designed to help you maintain your empathetic equilibrium. Finally, we’ll help you solidify your foundation by offering w UNKNOWN N N ©2018 Ashley Jones;(P)2018 Ashley Jones http://www.audible.de/pd/B07DVSNW34?source_code=PNHFA145032019009G&ipRedirectOverride=true http://www.audible.de/pd/B07DVSNW34?source_code=PNHFA145032019009G&ipRedirectOverride=true Erfolgsfaktor Stimme: Sales-up-Call 6.95 AVAILABLE Erfolgsfaktor Stimme: Sales-up-Call Erfolgsfaktor Stimme Stephan Heinrich, Arno Fischbacher Warum Sie selbst häufiger Ihre eigene Stimme hören sollten.

Despite the hordes of goblins still ready to ravage human lands, King Rard has signed a treaty with them, so Minalan is forbidden from taking advantage of their weakened state. Most would take a well-deserved rest over the summer…but Minalan and his household are busy repaying a favor owed to the tribal Kasari for their help in the war, and the Spellmonger pays his debts. So Minalan spends his summer sneaking 2,000 Kasari children through enemy lines, goblin territory, hostile Wilderlords, and through some of the roughest territory in the Five Duchies toward salvation.But the Spellmonger soon learns that not even the help of a goddess is going to be sufficient to contend with the realities of the quest. Despite his best efforts and some of the most advanced magic seen since the Magocracy, the march attracts enemies…and far too many friends. For when the desperate refugees of the war-torn Alshari Wilderlands see the well-fed legions of Kasari march by, they cannot help but follow, even if they have no idea of the destination. Any life is better than the hopeless existence they’ve lived avoiding starvation and the goblins’ stewpot. And the promise of hope the great march of the Spellmonger’s children offers is just too good to pass up. Security and the promise of a brighter future lie just on the other side of the border with the duchy of Castal.The problem is that the Duke of Castal, Prince Tavard, who is also Minalan's titular overlord, is dead-set against a single Alshari refugee crossing his frontier - and he’s assembled a small army to stop any from doing so. With political pressure high and the very gods maneuvering behind the scenes, it’s going to take some clever magic, some inspired legal maneuvering, and some serious effort to pull off this miracle… but that’s the k 9781772306446 N Y ©2018 Terry Mancour;(P)2018 Podium Publishing http://www.audible.de/pd/B07DXFX2KF?source_code=PNHFA145032019009G&ipRedirectOverride=true http://www.audible.de/pd/B07DXFX2KF?source_code=PNHFA145032019009G&ipRedirectOverride=true Fighting Redemption (Unabridged) 20.95 AVAILABLE Fighting Redemption (Unabridged) Fighting Redemption (Unabridged) Kate McCarthy Ryan Kendall is broken.

He understands pain. He knows the hand of violence and the ache of loss. He knows what it means to fail those who need you. Being broken doesn’t stop him from wanting the one thing he can’t have: Finlay Tanner. Her smile is sweet and her future bright. She’s the girl he grew up with, the girl he loves, the girl he protects from the world and from himself. At 19, Ryan leaves to join the Australian Army. After years of training, he becomes an elite SAS soldier and deploys to the Afghanistan war. His patrol undertakes the most dangerous missions a soldier can face. But no matter how far he runs or how hard he fights, his need for Finlay won’t let go. Returning home after six years, one look is all it takes to know he can’t live without her. But sometimes love isn’t enough to heal what hurts. Sometimes people like him can’t be fixed, and sometimes people like Finlay deserve more than what’s left. This is a story about war and the cost of sacrifice. Where bonds are formed, and friendships found. Where those who are strong, fall hard. Where love is let go, heartache is born, and heroes are made. Where one man learns the hardest fight of all is the fight to save himself.

The word “saint” comes from the Latin word “sanctus”, a translation of the Greek word, “hagios”, which means “holy.” While all of us are capable of holiness, canonization is the Church’s official recognition that a particular person displayed an extraordinary degree of holiness, or devotion to God, during his or her time on Earth. There is much to be learned from the words, acts, and lives of the saints of the Roman Catholic Church. They provide undeniable examples of the best that humankind is capable of - virtues like kindness, charity, love for each other, especially for the lowest and the least among us, courage in the face of adversity, humility, and selflessness. They embody the deepest love a person can have for God through their willingness to sacrifice all, even their lives, for their faith. They remind us that in our darkest moments we are not alone, and in our joys and triumphs they are reminders of God’s grace. You can take a few minutes every day to listen to one of the 365 quotes in this audiobook. Some start each day with prayer and devotional reading, and they carry that bit of serenity with them throughout their day. Others prefer to save these readings until the day is done, drifting to sleep wrapped in the warm blanket of God’s love. We hope that the wisdom of the ages, as articulated through the words of the saints, find their way into your heart.

When painter Shane Bellamy attempts to relaunch his life by moving into a remote summer cottage on the Missouri river, he becomes enthralled by the property's original owners, famed depression-era artist Gustav Wilhelm, and his wife, Marlena; painting their long-dead secrets of betrayal and revenge in a series of increasingly bizarre works, Shane finds that he has not only recreated their dark story on canvas, but he has brought it dreadfully back to life all around him. Visit the official website: www.riverhousebook.com. In the wake of his divorce and the loss of his New York art job, Shane is bereft and directionless. The cottage provides the perfect escape: small, picturesque, and lonely. There, he becomes fascinated with the history of the cottage, and that of its larger sister property, the Riverhouse, now demolished. Shane embarks on an unusual painting project: recreating the Riverhouse on canvas, as it might have looked when it was first built. As the painting develops, surprising Shane both with its style and its strange, silent strength, he finds that the image is a sort of portal, inviting him into the Riverhouse's past. He learns of its owners, portrait artist Gustav Wilhelm, known for his arrogance as much as his genius, and of Wilhelm's wife, the beautiful but ignored Marlena. Their story blooms in Shane's mind like a dark rose, full of deepening mystery and harrowing secrets. Gradually, Shane comes to realize that the decades' old drama isn't yet finished. Ghosts haunt the cottage, particularly the intriguing Marlena, and Shane finds himself inexplicably drawn to her, despite her otherworldly hatred of his tentative new love, art agent Christiana. Eventually, Shane finds himself caught in the spiraling collision course of his own life and that of the Riverhouse, which has secretly risen from its dead foundation. He knows he should escape and yet he cannot seem to walk away. After all, he thinks, ghosts can't harm 1. Language: English. Narrator: Doug Lee.
