Banana Palace

$17.00

"Images that are satisfyingly clear . . . and excitingly inexplicable." --Robert Pinsky, Washington Post"Intimate and hypnotic . . . whether turning her gaze inward or outward, these poems question the moral, aesthetic, and metaphysical needs that poetry exists to fill." --Ploughshares "Levin's work is phenomenological; it details how it feels to be an embodied consciousness making its way through the world." --Boston ReviewIn her newest collection, Dana Levin uses humor, jump-cut imagery, and popular culture references in preparation for the approaching apocalypse. Against a backdrop of Facebook, cat memes, and students searching their smartphones for a definition of the soul, Levin draws upon a culture of limited attention spans as it searches for greater spiritual meaning. The poems in Banana Palace are elliptical by design, the lines often trailing off into a white space of their own making, as if flirting with and resolving in their own isolation.It was the most glorious thing I had ever seen.Cross-section of a banana under a microscopethe caption read.I hunched around my little screensharing a fruit no one could eat.Dana Levin has published three books of poetry, Wedding Day (Copper Canyon), Sky Burial (Copper Canyon), and her first book, In the Surgical Theatre, won the APR/Honickman Award. A teacher of poetry for over twenty years, Levin splits her time between Santa Fe, New Mexico, and Maryville University in St. Louis, where she serves as Distinguished Writer in Residence.

In the Land of Huge Things

$14.95

Melanie Malone, tired of living with her abusive aunt after her parents' tragic deaths, runs away from home in hope of finding a better life. Her two best friends, determined to keep her out of trouble, tag along and run into some unexpected danger. The three friends find themselves in another land where everything is huge. They are faced with a world full of enormous insects, trees, and even giants- both good and bad! Melanie finds herself caught in the middle of a conflict between the mysterious Guardians of "The Land of Huge Things" and a band of malicious giants. She must save her friends and somehow help the Guardians thwart an evil plan to overthrow the kingdom without getting killed in the process. The Land of Huge Things, or The Realm, is a parallel world that is connected to the human world by a strange cave hidden in the side of some cliffs. This land, although beautiful and full of mystery, is also dangerous. The creatures that reside there are much different than those from our world. How will they react to humans from the outside world interfering with their own?

Protectorate Cyprus

$99.99

A vital strategic outpost in the Eastern Mediterranean, Cyprus was crucial to British imperial ambitions in the East as the Ottoman Empire became increasingly fragile in the nineteenth century. The island remains an example of the effects of Britain's 'informal empire', in which a 'superior' British 'civilization' was imposed upon the local population, both to improve the imperial subjects and to develop the island for capital investment and labour power - it was part of Joseph Chamberlain's 'undeveloped estate' of empire. Here, Gail Ruth Hook assesses education and labour policy, agriculture, harbor development and tourism and demonstrates the full impact of British colonialism on the Cypriot population. Protectorate Cyprus is a crucial addition to the history of Cyprus, as well as an important analysis of the physical and emotional legacy of British imperial rule.

Raven's Revenge: Tales of Dragonia

$17.99

Many years ago, Raven witnessed the destruction of her village and its people, including her family, and that vision still haunts her as an adult. As she grew up she was resourceful and learned the ways of the forest and the skills of a ranger, but she had something else that helped her survive, as with all woodland elves she processes a magic that is drawn from nature. With these talents she has sworn to avenge her people's death and vowed to kill Rhudaur, the sorcerer that caused their demise. Kelron, Prince of the Ararox people in the northeast region of Dragonia, is now on a quest to rescue his soon-to- be bride. Rhudaur, lifelong enemy of Kelron's father, has kidnapped her and he sets out on a path that will change him forever. When a mysterious man hires Raven to assist and protect Kelron on his journey, she sees this as an opportunity to fulfill her sworn vow of vengeance. Raven and Kelron must learn to trust each other and find a way to save Princess Tatiana from the grips of this evil sorcerer -- and themselves.
