The book presents the conclusions of a psychologist seeking to make sense of contemporary particle physics as described in a number of popular science texts and media articles, written by physicists, seeking to explain the workings of the sub-atomic world. The accounts, it is argued, are a) mutually exclusive and contradictory, and b) metaphysical or magical in essence. Themes of the book include: a discussion of the way we allow physicists to invent things that have no perceivable qualities, on the grounds that they 'must' be there because otherwise their preconceptions are wrong or their sums don't work; that, from a psychological perspective, contemporary theory in particle physics has the same properties as any other act of faith, and the same limitations as belief in God; and that physics has now reached a point at which increasingly physicists research their own psychological constructions rather than anything which is unambiguously 'there' or real. It encourages people to ask basic questions of the type we often use to question the existence of God; such as 'Where is he/it?', 'Show me?', 'Do it then', 'When did it happen?', 'How do you know it exists?', and so on, and suggests that people take a leaf out of Dawkins' text, The God Delusion, but apply it to high-end physics as much as to religious dogma: turning water into wine is a mere conjuring trick compared to producing an entire universe out of nothing.

The Mathematics of Magic was probably the greatest discovery of the ages - at least Professor Harold Shea thought so.

But slips in time were a hazard, and Shea's magic did not always work - at least, not quite as he expected . . . The Incomplete Enchanter is the first in L. Sprague de Camp and Fletcher Pratt's much-loved Compleat Enchanter series.

This set includes all four books of the Tricia Goyer WWII series: From Dust and Ashes, Night Song, Dawn of a Thousand Nights, and Arms of Deliverance. In From Dust and Ashes, it is 1945 and a group of American soldiers liberate a Nazi concentration camp. Helene is the abandoned wife of an SS guard who has fled to avoid arrest. Overcome by guilt, she begins to help meet the needs of survivors. Throughout the process, she finds her own liberation - from spiritual bondage, sin, and guilt. Readers will be intrigued and touched by this fascinating story of love, faithfulness, and courage amidst one of the darkest chapters of mankind's history. In Night Song, Tricia Goyer tells the little-known but true story of the orchestra started by prisoners in Hitler's Mauthausen death camp. This courageous orchestra played the American national anthem as Allied troops arrived to liberate the camps. Around the orchestra story, Tricia weaves the fictional stories of a beautiful member of the Austrian resistance, the American GI who loves her, and a young prisoner who fakes his way into the camp orchestra in a desperate attempt to stay alive. In Dawn of a Thousand Nights, readers journey with Dan Fletcher and Libby Conner, both U.S. pilots fighting in WWII's Pacific Theater. Fletcher is captured by the Japanese and is forced to endure the horror of the Bataan Death March in the Philippines. It is here that he encounters Natsu Hidiki, a guard whose nagging conscience won't let him ignore the human degradation in which he is participating. Libby Conner is a WASP (Women's Air Force Service Pilot), who ferries military planes between Hawaii and the South Pacific. By the time of the attack on Pearl Harbor, she has turned the head of Fletcher in no small way. Readers will be captivated by this tale of dignity and honor triumphing in the midst of a very dark time in history. In Arms ofDeliverance, Mary and Lee have gone from best friends to competing WWII journalists, but a bombing raid gone wrong puts Mary's life at risk and sends Lee on a heroic rescue attempt through the fierce teeth of combat. Then, amidst an adventurous struggle for freedom, they uncover the story of the unspeakable Lebensborn atrocity.With equal doses of adrenaline and poignancy, Tricia Goyer's storytelling places readers not only behind enemy lines into the heat of battle, but also deep into the innermost sanctuary of the human heart.

Growing up dwarfed by peers is a common problem, one faced by many and conquered by almost that number. In the grand scheme, it's a small predicament. But when your hometown is Humongopolis, smallness becomes a dilemma of giant proportions. Meet Obstaclēs, a giant born without the most basic quality of his kind...size. Taking lonely nature walks and delaying bully beat downs gets old. Even his friendship with Griff, a fugitive from the Land of Men, isn't enough to make things right...even if Griff's hideout does double as an underground library. Obstaclēs will have to hack through the Forest of Future Regret, span the Lake of Lost Souls, tangle with the lizard king, mix it up with Wasp Warriors, escape the Wendigo’s claws, and put the clamps on Changelings. Will Obstaclēs overcome? Or will the littlest giant let his deferred dream explode and embrace a fresh start?

Neil Gaiman meets How to Train Your Dragon in this beautifully illustrated middle-grade novel about a boy, his trusted dog, and his best friend, as they race to save the stars before their light is extinguished for good. When the world first formed, the night was black and filled with dark creatures. The Elders knew their people couldn't survive under such a threat. So they gave their hearts to the sky in the form of stars to keep evil away. Now, eleven-year-old Kyro is a Star Shepherd like his father. He's spent his life tucked away in the small town of Drenn. There, the family watches the night sky for falling stars—and rushes to rescue them when they do. When too many stars start falling at once, and disappearing before they can be saved, Kyro's father journeys to report the threat. But when he doesn't return, Kyro, with the help of his best friend, Andra, and his trusty dog, Cypher, must find a way to save the stars before the dark creatures make a terrifying return.
