In this study, J. Douglas Canfield contends that baroque disruption persists even as English literature becomes more neoclassical. It twists forms and meanings. From paradoxical, mysterious moments in Paradise Lost, amazing metaphorics in Cavendish and Philips, momentous materializations in Waller and Dorset, and revealing displacements in Buckingham and Rochester to outrageous attack in Dryden and Pope, astonishing ventriloquizing in Killigrew and Finch and Montagu, and eccentricity and grotesquerie in Gulliver's Travels - the baroque comes back to disturb neoclassical regularity.--BOOK JACKET.

Santa Cecilia is a medium-sized university town in the Texas Hill Country. The townies and gownies get along well enough, and most folks accept their neighbors of all colors, creeds, and orientations. The Unitarian Universalist church downtown is just another house of worship, albeit a bit more liberal than average for a Texas town. The UU’s enjoy their jobs (mostly), help their less fortunate neighbors, and raise healthy, intelligent children. It’s all just too good to last. After a popular, outspoken intern minister arrives, important objects start disappearing, then reappearing. Accounts get hacked, windows get broken, and a well-known church member is found strangled. And then it gets really weird. A large ensemble cast of members and friends put heads and hearts together to figure out who is sabotaging their beloved church—and why. Many of them don’t consider themselves religious, but they will defend this church to the death if necessary. In their struggle, they find unlikely allies, bizarre misdirections, great vegan Tex-Mex, killer margaritas, excellent weed, the joys and perils of polyamory, and Transylvanian hospitality that can’t be beat.

Over his four-decade career, Sid Meier has produced some of the world’s most popular video games, including Sid Meier’s Civilization, which has sold more than 51 million units worldwide and accumulated more than one billion hours of play. Sid Meier’s Memoir! is the story of an obsessive young computer enthusiast who helped launch a multibillion-dollar industry. Writing with warmth and ironic humor, Meier describes the genesis of his influential studio, MicroProse, founded in 1982 after a trip to a Las Vegas arcade, and recounts the development of landmark games, from vintage classics like Pirates! and Railroad Tycoon, to Civilization and beyond. Articulating his philosophy that a video game should be “a series of interesting decisions,” Meier also shares his perspective on the history of the industry, the psychology of gamers, and fascinating insights into the creative process, including his rules of good game design.

Issues involving 'character' have been the object of increasing interest and debate in recent years. Social psychologists attempt to determine the role of character as a cause of human behavior, moral philosophers explore the significance of character for understanding ethics and virtue, and literary scholars investigate the depiction of character in narrative. Weighing Hearts represents the first serious attempt to integrate all these approaches in order to gain a deeper and more precise understanding of how readers evaluate characters in biblical narrative. While the primary focus is on the Hebrew Bible, the author also includes several comparative analyses involving other ancient and modern literary works. Weighing Hearts also shows how biblical historians and redaction critics can make their analyses more precise and nuanced, by taking into account what psychology has learned about the consistency of character and the 'attribution errors' people make when evaluating others.

Kirsty’s afterlife gets even more Hellish in this second installment of The Reluctant Reaper series when her soul-stealing ex-boss targets her beloved aunt. Her only chance to stop him? Becoming a Reaper herself. Fortunately, her hunky new boyfriend, Italian-poet-turned-Reaper Dante Alighieri, is there to help. Still trapped in the bureaucratic inferno known as Hell, Kirsty d’Arc redoubles her efforts to escape back to the Mortal Coil when she learns Conrad is after the soul of her beloved aunt. To save Aunt Carey, Kirsty must enroll at the Reaper Academy and earn a scythe of her own. Studying topics like Exor-scything 101, Riding the Death Cycle, and Reincarnation for Dummies is strange. But then, so are her classmates: a fallen angel, the Death Valley girls, and Kali—the ancient god of death, destruction, and those little earring backs that always go missing. Now time is running out thanks to a temporal crisis she may have accidentally created. Can she graduate, rescue her aunt, take down Conrad, and save Hell and every other dimension—before the clock stops ticking? As the saying goes in Hell, “Be careful what you wish for; it just might get you!”
