Science History of the Universe

By: Francis Rolt Wheeler

In the present volume there have been covered in a comprehensive and popular manner the various departments of Astronomy. Owing to its treatment in a definitely historical and descriptive manner, however, it may be possible to supplement the general review by a few brief statements of some of the results and problems that confront us in the actual work of the observational astronomy of to-day.

The astronomical beliefs of prehistoric man were doubt similar to those entertained by the Eskimo of the Arctic regions and the untutored tribes of Argentine' Republic, South Africa and Australia, tribes who, living only for the day, concern themselves but little with to- morrow and yesterday and care nothing about the universe...

The Loudest Voice in the World: Story 3 of 4 in the Foresight Series

By: Brant von Goble

A lightly dystopian tale of life after the destruction of most technology.

A band of light torques around her finger and then it drops. The rest flows down from her head and out in all directions—a messy, not- quite halo, hanging far too low, obscuring her otherworldly face.

Hawaii Place Names

By: Esther Mookini

In this latest book, John Clark, author of the highly regarded "Beaches of Hawaii" series, gives us the many captivating stories behind the hundreds of Hawaii place names associated with the ocean—the names of shores, beaches, and other sites where people fish, swim, dive, surf, and paddle. Significant features and landmarks on or near shores, such as fishponds, monuments, shrines, reefs, and small islands, are also included. The names of surfing sites are the most nu...

By Water Reborn : A Short Fantasy Romance

By: Ms. Holly Bargo

This is a tale of honor and obligation, of instinct and restraint. When the fae huntsman Asher obeys a royal command to capture a mate for the prince, an elderly widow's life ends in water and is then transformed to youthful immortality by water. Dependent upon the huntsman who captured her, Gwen must come to terms with an afterlife that offers one very important choice: accept the huntsman or not. This short story contains mature content which may not be suitable for...

Gwen inhaled the soft air, fragrant with the scent of lemon groves and some pretty pink and yellow flowers she didn’t recognize. As she climbed the well-groomed trail that led to the top of a scenic overlook, she wished Douglas could have been there with her on this long-anticipated holiday in sunny Italy. She sighed and paused to rest her aching knees and hips. Getting old sucked. She passed a young couple entwined around one another and taking advantage of the romanti...

Sacred Books

By: M. Winternitz

THE period covered by the inception, the publication, and the completion of the Sacred Books of the East exactly coincides with the thirty-four years that I have spent in Oxford. When I matriculated, Professor Max Muller, the editor of the series, was about to begin work on the first volume, which appeared while I was still an undergraduate. I lost no time in making his acquaintance, for it was the influence of one of his works that had stimulated me to begin under Pro...

Habeltt sua lata libelli-not only after they have been published, but sometimes even before they are printed. It was in the spring of 1894 that the late Professor Max Muller first suggested to me that I should compile a General Index of the names and subject-matter for the complete series of the Sacred Books of the East. Such an Index, he thought, would be a great help to all students of the Sacred Books of tile East, and of the greatest value for the study of the history of religions.

That dream came true faster than anyone could have predicted. The global penetration of the Internet works as an accelerator to the acceptance of every new technology that aims to serve the emerging needs of people. This is the ultimate goal of every technology, to better meet the needs of people, and nothing else matters.

Trei Povestiri

By: Marcu Jura

”Trei povestiri” nu este un simplu volum de povestiri. Cele trei proze scurte care îl compun formează un întreg. E mai degrabă un roman cu trei capitole distincte. ”Trei povestiri” e a doua carte dintr-o trilogie pe care autorul o începe cu romanul ”Evanghelia neagră” (care va fi publicat ulterior apariției acestui volum) și o va finaliza cu un alt roman (în lucru la data publicării volumului de față). Elementul comun al celor 3 cărți este androginul. Abia cristalizat ...

- Eu zic că e bine. Ceva se întâmplă cu conștiința ta. Nu crezi? - Poate, ceva zen. Ți-a rămas ciorba tot în farfurie. - Da, când strângi masa, ai putea s-o arunci. E casa ta. Își puse cotul pe masă, palma pe ochi. Își strânse craniul între degetul mare și cel mijlociu. Coborî, apăsat, pe obraji, până la bărbie și înapoi. - Când se va termina? - Lucrurile ăstea cer timp. - Și pe urmă? - De unde să știu?
