Director of The Terminator, Aliens and Titanic, James Cameron’s latest movie, Avatar, is the most viewed cinema release of all time, yet to date receives little academic attention. Filling the... More > gap, editor of, Bryn V. Young-Roberts, researches Avatar’s historical and cultural relevance with its first in-depth examination while simultaneously discussing the Cameron oeuvre. From the perspective of historical contextualisation and cultural analysis we decipher its socially significant subtext, encouraging a view that Avatar is not exclusively a generic entertainment spectacle. Providing foundations for future studies, we examine the film as metaphor for the Iraq War, advocator of the Internet as liberation tool, and political stance to the Bush administration. Fear of the industrial-military complex, and romantic ideals of Class are also analysed. Ultimately, the volume summarizes Avatar in relation to Cameron’s other work and how it fits into our larger, contemporary society.< Less

Word by word, sentence by sentence, a great read.” – Sally Bellerose, author of The Girls Club< Less

Unveiled (Mostly Fictional Stories) By Marcia M. Guest

Avery appears as an in-law in one story and as Frankie's neighbor in the next. Vera, a middle-aged housewife, is in two stories. While the first six stories are definitely fiction, the last story is non-fiction--it's about a ski vacation to Colorado with my best friends from Ohio. I broke the rules by combining fiction and non-fiction in one collection, but it just came out that way. Readers tend to find the ski vacation story too unbelievable to be true.

A Portrait of the Artist As a Young Man By James Joyce
eBook (ePub): $2.99
(1 Ratings)
"Have Read Little and Understood Less." Such is the average appreciation for James Joyce. This book could be your guidebook to his genius - if you dare. Joyce wrote with a huge... More > vocabulary, poured into a stream-of-consciousness approach through his writing. Most readers are left at the curb from this. Because they don't know how to disengage their mind to fly beyond the prison of their own world, to enter his. To read this classic is to get a primer on how to read its sequel, Ulysses. We meet this semi-biographical Stephen Daedalus and learn how his mind works. Joyce isn't linear. He doesn't stick to hard-core plot lines. There is no adventure cliffhangers here. Instead, you find themes ebbing and flowing like the intersection of waves, wind, trees, and dust - all flowing through the story. If you are ready, or even if you aren't, this book stands ready to change your life. Scroll back up and get your copy now.< Less
