Climb the Beanstalk will take you on a journey that is profound, simple, funny, serious, deep and thought-provoking. These poetic writings span the gamut of subjects-from Christian to macabre to everyday life and all places in- between. The wide variety of topics is a reflection of the life and struggles of a gifted writer dealing with OCD and bi-polar disorder. Although this is not a biography, after reading the book you will feel like you know Shane in all depth, humor, and brilliance. After taking the roller coaster ride through his poetry you will better understand the bi-polar mind - for much of this book is a journey that Shane Bailey lived and these are places that he has been. As much as possible, the writing has been kept in its original condition, as Shane like to stretch the boundaries of "poetic license". His excessive use of capitalization, ellipses, and an occasional made -up word, add interest and intrigue to what is often an unconventional writing style.

Thin Places is an eloquent meditation on what it means to move between cultures and how one might finally come home, a particular paradox in a culture that lacks deep ties to the natural world. During the 1990s, Ann Armbrecht, an American anthropologist, made several trips to northeastern Nepal to research how the Yamphu Rai acquired, farmed, and held onto their land; how they perceived their area's recent designation as a national park and conservation area; and whether-as she believed-they held a wisdom about living on the earth that the industrialized West had forgotten. What Armbrecht found instead were men and women who shared her restlessness, people also driven by the feeling that there must be more to life than they could find in their village. Charting Armbrecht's travels in the mountains of Nepal and in the United States, as well as her disintegrating marriage back home, Thin Places is ultimately an exploration not of the sacred far-off but of the sacredness of places that are between?between the internal and external landscape, the self and others, and the self and the land. She finds that home is not a place where we arrive but a way of being in place, wherever that place may be.

In her moving spiritual memoir, Mary DeMuth traces the winding path of “thin places” in her life—places where she experienced longing and healing more intensely than before. As DeMuth writes, “Thin places are snatches of holy ground, tucked into the corners of our world, where we might just catch a glimpse of eternity. They are aha moments, beautiful realizations, when the Son of God bursts through the hazy fog of our monotony and shines on us afresh.”From losing her earthly father to discovering a heavenly Father who never leaves, from singing Olivia Newton-John songs to the sky to worshiping God under a French sun, from surviving abuse as a latchkey kid to experiencing the joy of mothering three children, DeMuth’s story calls readers to a deeper understanding of their own story. With unusual spiritual wisdom, she looks for God in the past so that she might experience him more profoundly in the present. Her powerful words invite readers to know God in a new way—a God ready to break through any ordinary day or extraordinary pain and offer a glimpse of eternity.

Come and visit a world of subtle horror and dark fantasy by master of creeping horror Tom Fletcher; a world in which insidious forces permeate the folds of reality, twisting it one strand at a time. This omnibus includes the novels The Leaping, The Thing on the Shore and The Ravenglass Eye, with a bonus chapter from Tom's new fantasy series, The Factory Trilogy, included. THE LEAPING Jack finished university three years ago, but he's still stuck in a dead-end job in a sinister call-centre in Manchester. When the beautiful(and rich) Jennifer comes into his life, he thinks he has finally found his ticket out of there. Trouble is that his boss is interested in Jennifer aswell, and there's something strangely bestial about him . . . So when Jennifer buys Fell House, a mysterious old mansion in remote Cumbria, a house party on a legendary scale seems like the perfect escape. But as the party spins out of control on a seemingly neverending night, they must face up to the terrifying possibility that not all their guests may be human - and some of them want to feed. THE THING ON THE SHORE When Artemis Black is assigned to manage a call centre on behalfof a mysterious multinational corporation called Interext, he decides toimplement a unique personal project, installing cutting-edge AI technology inthe centre. But this 'technology' has other effects. Soon, one of Artemis' employees, Arthur, becomes aware of anintangible landscape inside the labyrinthine systems of the call-centre - alandscape in which he can feel an otherworldly consciousness stirring . . . THE RAVENGLASS EYE Edie is a barmaid at The Tup in the small town of Ravenglass. So far, so normal. But when she is caught in a freak earthquake she subsequently develops 'The Eye' - a power that allows her glimpses of other worlds and strange events. At first Edie passes her visions off as nightmares, but when a person is found murdered, she realises that she has seen this death before, and that her visions are not imaginary, but real. Mankind had better hope that Edie finds a solution to the murders soon, because it's more than just the influence of The Eye that has entered the world. A power far more malevolent has been released, and that power is hungry for death.

Der Klassiker zum Wiederentdecken: Mit seinem Weltbestseller revolutionierte der Bergsteiger und Schriftsteller Jon Krakauer die Abenteuerliteratur – und läßt Spannung und Faszination, Fassungslosigkeit und blankes Entsetzen eins werden. 1996 nahm der amerikanische Journalist Jon Krakauer an einer Mount-Everest-Expedition teil. Das Unternehmen endete in einer Katastrophe, fünf von Krakauers Kameraden kamen auf tragische Weise in einem peitschenden Schneesturm ums Leben, er selbst konnte sich mit letzter Kraft in Sicherheit bringen. Minutiös und eindrucksvoll schildert er in diesem Bericht den Verlauf der Expedition. Er äußert sich außerdem kritisch über die Auswüchse des modernen Alpinismus mit seinen oft tödlichen Folgen, vermittelt aber zugleich einen Eindruck von der magischen Anziehungskraft und der Faszination des Bergsteigens.
