When life gave Fenrir Goldson a second chance, he asked for a gift receipt. Mr. Goldson is filthy rich. He’s also callous and cruel and hasn’t got a festive bone in his ancient body. Naturally, he’s due for a holiday haunting. When his business partner, Bolbi Baggs, announces that they’re to be visited by three spirits, Mr. Goldson braces himself for a whirlwind tour of his past, present, and future. Typically, a trio of time-traveling ghosts heralds a heartwarming tale of hope and redemption for the human race. Mr. Goldson, however, isn’t a member of the human race. He’s a Dwarf, and Mr. Baggs is a Halfling, and the adventure that’s about to take them across the enchanted world of Arth is anything but typical. Holiday magic and economic realities collide in A Song of Three Spirits. It’s A Christmas Carol for the 21st century, with a dash of high fantasy. Read this hilarious satire of Charles Dickens’s classic today!

Songs for the Spirits examines the Vietnamese practice of communing with spirits through music and performance. During rituals dedicated to a pantheon of indigenous spirits, musicians perform an elaborate sequence of songs--a "songscape"--for possessed mediums who carry out ritual actions, distribute blessed gifts to disciples, and dance to the music's infectious rhythms. Condemned by French authorities in the colonial period and prohibited by the Vietnamese Communist Party in the late 1950s, mediumship practices have undergone a strong resurgence since the early 1990s, and they are now being drawn upon to promote national identity and cultural heritage through folklorized performances of rituals on the national and international stage. By tracing the historical trajectory of traditional music and religion since the early twentieth century, this groundbreaking study offers an intriguing account of the political transformation and modernization of cultural practices over a period of dramatic and often turbulent transition. An accompanying DVD contains numerous video and music extracts that illustrate the fascinating ways in which music evokes the embodied presence of spirits and their gender and ethnic identities.

Magical realism is often regarded as a regional trend, restricted to the Latin American writers who popularized it as a literary form. In this critical anthology, the first of its kind, editors Lois Parkinson Zamora and Wendy B. Faris show magical realism to be an international movement with a wide-ranging history and a significant influence among the literatures of the world. In essays on texts by writers as diverse as Toni Morrison, Günter Grass, Salman Rushdie, Derek Walcott, Abe Kobo, Gabriel García Márquez, and many others, magical realism is examined as a worldwide phenomenon. Presenting the first English translation of Franz Roh's 1925 essay in which the term magical realism was coined, as well as Alejo Carpentier's classic 1949 essay that introduced the concept of lo real maravilloso to the Americas, this anthology begins by tracing the foundations of magical realism from its origins in the art world to its current literary contexts. It offers a broad range of critical perspectives and theoretical approaches to this movement, as well as intensive analyses of various cultural traditions and individual texts from Eastern Europe, Asia, North America, Africa, the Caribbean, and Australia, in addition to those from Latin America. In situating magical realism within the expanse of literary and cultural history, this collection describes a mode of writing that has been a catalyst in the development of new regional literatures and a revitalizing force for more established narrative traditions--writing particularly alive in postcolonial contexts and a major component of postmodernist fiction.

In Egyptian mythology, the phoenix was a bird that rose from the ashes of death to attain immortality. In this book, spiritual healer and counselor Lily Fairchilde takes us on a magical voyage during which we learn, in the words of those who have gone on before, what awaits each of us after life on Earth is over. What happens when a child dies, a friend commits suicide, or a lost soul finally ends a dark, Earthly life? In Song of the Phoenix, we encounter many different souls, accompanied by their spiritual guides of angels, who explain the significance of their stories. Rather than a place of reward and punishment, the afterlife is a wondrous experience of ongoing growth and understanding. - Ruth surrendered to despair after her husband's wartime death and committed suicide, also killing her unborn child. Terrified of punishment, her soul resisted passing over until her guardian angel convinced her that only love and understanding awaited her. - Joey was a six-year-old who was killed in a sledding accident and whose parents agonized over his death. He yearns only to reassure them that he has entered a glorious world of brilliant light. - Edith and Frank are troubled spirits who cleave to earthly souls who share their addictions to overeating and alcohol, But their guardians refuse to abandon them until they realize that a far more rewarding joy awaits them if only they accept it. - Xavier has led an evil life as a sadistic killer, and his soul suffers torment in a wasteland of isolation and pain. But even he has a guardian angel, who patiently waits for him to receive the love and encouragement that will guide him home. These extraordinary personal stories, told by Lily Fairchilde, bring a message of glowing hope and comfort to all those who have suffered the agony of loss or are confronting the fear of death themselves. Profound and compassionate, this book shows the living how to make peace with death.
