Bezriel is the home of sorcery powerful enough to transform the world. For many Bezrielites, including the powerful young sorceress, Ariadne, sorcery is the mystical key to living in harmony with nature. But for William, the most powerful sorcerer in modern times, sorcery means power over nature and people. Ariadne’s War is the story of three intertwining struggles: the civil war between modernizing King Soren and a rebellious nobility determined to preserve feudal traditions; the war of four mighty kingdoms triggered by Soren’s expansionist ambitions; the struggle between the sorcerers William and Ariadne over the future of sorcery and the soul of Bezriel.

This book explores the possibility that Friedrich Nietzsche simulated his madness as a form of “voluntary death,” and thus that his madness functioned as the symbolic culmination of his philosophy. The book weaves together scholarly, mytho-poetic, literary critical, biographical, and dramatic genres not only to explore specifics of Nietzsche’s “madness,” but to question the “reason/madness” opposition in nineteenth and twentieth century thinking. A rational and scholarly study of this period of Nietzsche’s “breakdown”—presented through his writings, letters, and poetry in combination with relevant historical documents and other critics’ writings—is simultaneously disrupted and questioned by several non-traditional discourses or voices that break in on it. Thus, Ariadne’s voice frames and unframes the research context and plays alongside it. Ariadne’s voice is poetic, revelatory, rhapsodic, and prophetic, sounding much like Nietzsche’s own voice during his “breakdown.” Ariadne’s discourse attempts to seduce through a non-rational, mytho-poetic love story which culminates in the wedding of Dionysus and Ariadne. Other non-rational discourses, critically developed and based upon the work of Nietzsche, Jean Baudrillard, and Gilles Deleuze, are given voice and work together with Ariadne to counter the usual interpretations of Nietzsche’s “madness” and of what “mad” discourse is. These discourses are given the names “catastrophe,” “phantasm,” and “seduction.” The experiment of the book is not only to offer an entirely different perspective on Nietzche’s “madness” but to offer and perform new and challenging forms of affirmative discourse.

Ariadne's Thread came from the need to tell stories of the amazing women in my family. All of them, born in Russia before the 1917 Revolution, settled in France where they had to adapt to a life radically different from what they had known. When their world collapsed, they could either collapse with it, or reinvent themselves. These women taught me the art of survival: resilience in adversity, self-reliance, frugality. Through them - my grandmother, my aunts, my mother - I learned lessons which are not taught in school, values which have sustained me throughout my life. These women's down-to-earth values have new relevance today, in a world preoccupied by appearances and material gain. By looking at my family's collective past, I see clues for a better future. If we want a better world, we could do worse than turn to a few old-fashioned values and work at putting them into practice. The book is a tribute to the precious heritage I received from people who lived and loved fully, and for whom everyday life was a celebration. I hope they will inspire many.

A mad cult leader and his followers await Armageddon at a desert stronghold. Society reels from the discovery that dinosaurs might have succumbed to an AIDS-like infection. Government forces are jittery, and a rogue reporter may learn more than she wants to know when she seeks out the mysterious holy man known only as Corfuselas. Is he merely another paranoid extremist, or does he indeed know something about the government, something about the structure of reality, something about the fate of humanity he can not be permitted to reveal? Is he indeed a man, or something else entirely? Through vivid imagery and believable characterization, Ariadne's Clew weaves this timely and believable premise into a tense, character-driven page-turner. As multiple plots converge, the reader's assumptions about good and evil are explored and challenged.

Teaching demands many talents and takes many forms, but few teachers devote most of their working life to the teaching of those who are oppressed. Eleanor Aitken did, and her story - a detailed and shocking account of the plight of Palestinians -makes remarkable reading. Having seen at first-hand how cruelly mistreated and maligned they were, she felt strongly the need to help more people to understand the Palestinian situation, their history and their culture. The founding of an educational trust for Palestinians, in which the author's role was instrumental, had a dual aim: to help Westerners, especially native speakers of English to learn at first-hand about Palestine and Palestinians, and to give Palestinians, particularly refugees, an opportunity to express through the English language the injustices they have suffered. The stories of individuals with whom the author came into contact are woven into her own story.
