Book Description: Everybody knows that the schools of the Ivy League -- universally touted as the pinnacle of American higher education -- have graduated countless political leaders, corporate titans, and global power brokers. But did you know these schools have also produced murderers, warmongers, traitors, plagiarists, slave traders, pederasts, and every other variety of moral reprobate? Whether you're a high school student grinding away in the hope of gaining admission to one of these institutions, a parent propelling a child toward Ivy glory, a current Ivy League undergraduate wondering "What the hell is this place?" -- or even an Ivy League alum, professor, administrator, or dropout -- this book was written specifically for you. As a warning. Because there are certain things -- monstrous things -- that go unmentioned in the catalog, campus tour, or employment package. And if your Ivy League application was rejected, here's compelling and consoling evidence of how lucky you are.

Book Description: They say in the Outside that Arcade City changes you. It twists and bends you to it’s will, forcing you to become something greater or worse than you ever imagined. At least, those are the rumors. The wardogs who ply their trade in the Outside don’t talk about it much, but it’s apparent from the way they fight and the way they die that something beneath that gigantic Dome happens, and that it is awful. Garth ‘Nickels’ N’Chalez remembers wondering ‘how bad it could possibly get?’. Quite clearly. After all, he’s The Engineer, he’s The Specter, he’s the First Kin’kithal. He laid down a thirty thousand year old con to destroy the Universe in a very specific manner and he’s done battle with things the human mind can barely contain. But that was before Kingsblood. That was before the smoldering Dark Iron curse tried to boil him alive in his own skin and before it tried to give Specter full control of his life. Cruel and vicious and offering up to him the kind of power he craves and fears, Garth has spent most of his time ‘neath The Dome struggling with the passionate urge to lay waste to everything in his path. Desperate to reach Ickford, intent on finding this Agnethea woman who apparently possessed the knowledge to rid him of his poison, Garth can’t wait to be free of both the sludge in his veins and the nattering, cantankerous smith who has been his only companion for too long. At his side, ‘Barnabas the Smith’, who is in truth, King Barnabas Blake the One and Only. Monarch for Arcade City and possessor of unthinkably powerful nanotech, the King has been Garth’s constant companion. Teaching him the methods by which King’s Will can be used to forge the most amazing weapons and tools, Barnabas Blake has also been trying to get Specter to rise up out of the dark places. But that’s all changed. Grown sick and tired of dealing with the mercurial Nickels and his improbable resilience to Kingsblood, King Barnabas Blake tosses Garth ‘Nickels’ N’Chalez to the first Obsidian Golem, Queen Agnethea the Vile, so he might return to his Dome and finally, once and for all, do for the blasted Outsider. And the Queen. And Foul Ickford. And any other damnfool idiot who lives within the cancerous walls. By any means necessary. All so he can begin properly destroying the Universe. Gearmen Dominic Breton and Chevril Pointillier are hot on Garth’s heels, and when they arrive at Ickford, they unwittingly find themselves in the middle of … a situation. One they’re not prepared for. One no one is prepared for. A situation that will change the structure of Arcade City until the very end of it’s days. One that will cause brothers to fight, enemies to stand side by side, hope to falter and blood to boil. It’s the beginning of the end, down there ‘neath The Great Geared Dome, isn’t it just? In the Outside, things are just as awful. Commander Aleksander Politoyov is missing. Tendreel Salingh hunts for answers with her unique powers, drawing the attention of the Harmony soldiers within Latelyspace. Sa Candall hungers for revenge against the Heavy Elites who killed his friend, Shane, and gives the Latelians a weapon that will change the face of combat in the Unreal Universe forever. Chairman Herrig DuPont struggles to keep the Latelian Commonwealth on even ground. Jordan Bishop begins his hunt for Garth, intent on wreaking havoc on the man who ruined his life. The Unreal Universe grows ever more uneasy. Will Garth survive King’s Gauntlet ‘neath The Dome? More to the point, what will he become if he does?

Book Description: In one volume, the BFI Companion to Horror offers a complete concordance to one of the most lasting genres of popular entertainment, focusing of course on the cinema but also taking in literature, television, radio, popular music, history and folklore. Covering great artists like Boris Karloff and Edgar Allan Poe and humble toilers like Edward D. Wood and John Carradine, this book provides a history of the horror genre from its pre-cinema beginnings in the eighteenth-century gothic novel and the Victorian ghost story through a hundred years of fevered activity, spotlighting not only mainstream horror producers such as Hammer Films and Alfred Hitchcock but also less expected names (Franz Kafka and Ingmar Bergman). In addition to entries on actors, directors, writers and technicians associated with horror, and all horror-themed film and television series, there are insightful essays on classic horror characters like Frankenstein and Dracula, on recurrent situations like decapitation and body-snatching, even on often-horrific portions of the body like eyes and brains. Among the experts who have contributed are Mark Ashworth, Anne Billson, Jeremy Clarke, Christopher Frayling, Neil Gaiman, Phil Hardy, Peter Hutchings, Tom Hutchinson, Alan Jones, Stephen Jones, Mark Kermode, Tim Lucas, Maitland McDonagh, David Prothero, Mark Salisbury, Philip Strick, Steve Thrower and Linda Ruth Williams.

Book Description: Ever since his emergence from the Canadian cinematic underground of the late 1960s, David Cronenberg has challenged and disturbed audiences. The father of 'bloody horror', his films have mapped out a unique terrain where the human psyche and biology meet. This collection of new interviews by critic Serge Grunberg examines the career of the writer/director, from his uncertain beginnings, through his mastery of disturbingly psychosexual themes, to his later works that question the existential nature of reality itself.

Book Description: Ця книжка про те, як подолати труднощі, якщо ти не гігант Голіаф, а звичайна людина.

Чому сила не завжди є запорукою перемоги? Як перетворити свої недоліки на переваги? Що робити в абсолютно безвихідних, на перший погляд, ситуаціях? Щоб відповісти на ці та інші запитання, Малкольм Гладуелл переосмислив біблійну легенду про аутсайдера Давида та фаворита Голіафа. Автор доводить, що успіх не залежить від масивності обладунків та міцних м’язів. Адже переваги можуть легко перетворитися на вади і навпаки. У книзі наведені історії з життя реальних особистостей, талановитих та звичайних, геніальної школярки, яка не впоралася з вимогами престижного університету та сироти з бідної родини, який здійснив прорив у боротьбі з дитячою лейкемією. На їхньому прикладі автор доводить, що наші уявлення про переваги і недоліки є хибними. Адже саме прості аутсайдери здатні подолати могутніх фаворитів.
