It was their bones. All the ones she killed. That's what really got me––it was the knowing. Reported missing by his family, sixty-something Hugh can't remember where he's been or how he ends up in Ned and Nancy's farm with nothing but a rucksack and a pillbox. When they offer food and a place to lay his head in exchange for work, he takes them up on it. But it doesn't take long for Hugh to feel the 'wrong' in a place. Dark men in Cadillacs haunt him. Dinners turn gluttonous. Bones are found in hay fields and the dead watch from reflections. Hugh slowly loses his mind. Or so he thinks. The secrets of the old farm want to be told and Hugh's the only one listening. If only he can get out in time. If only he can remember.
Moyo is a man in decline who can no longer ignore his own mortality. He lives in Victoria Falls, Zimbabwe’s premier tourist resort, and works as a receptionist in its grandest hotel, the Mosi-Oa-Tunya. Ordinarily, Moyo would prefer to keep his head down; however, his circumstances and bad luck conspire against him. Moyo becomes an ‘accidental’ conservationist when he can no longer turn a blind eye to the hypocrisy of his employer. He begins to wonder if the general malaise that seems to beset his drought ravaged country is the product of his people’s neglect of traditional customs that have guided local communities through the centuries. Suddenly, seemingly unrelated events assume ominous significance. Moyo’s family is thrown into turmoil by the amorous adventures of his eldest son, Bekithemba. While the consequences of Bekithemba’s misadventures are entirely predictable, the same cannot be said for the capricious repercussions of a notorious crime committed in Moyo’s neighbourhood. Against his better judgment, and at a time when he is at his most vulnerable, Moyo becomes the unwilling champion of the local pariah, Thembi, who is accused of infanticide. Moyo reluctantly assumes the role of patron of lost causes. He soon discovers that if he is to avert disaster, he needs to reawaken the very best in his family, his friends, his neighbours and, most critically, himself.

All of human experience flows from bodies that feel, express emotion, and think about what such experiences mean. But is it possible for us, embodied as we are in a particular time and place, to know how people of long ago thought about the body and its experiences? In this groundbreaking book, three leading experts on the Classic Maya (ca. AD 250 to 850) marshal a vast array of evidence from Maya iconography and hieroglyphic writing, as well as archaeological findings, to argue that the Classic Maya developed a coherent approach to the human body that we can recover and understand today. The authors open with a cartography of the Maya body, its parts and their meanings, as depicted in imagery and texts. They go on to explore such issues as how the body was replicated in portraiture; how it experienced the world through ingestion, the senses, and the emotions; how the body experienced war and sacrifice and the pain and sexuality that were intimately bound up in these domains; how words, often heaven-sent, could be embodied; and how bodies could be blurred through spirit possession. From these investigations, the authors convincingly demonstrate that the Maya conceptualized the body in varying roles, as a metaphor of time, as a gendered, sexualized being, in distinct stages of life, as an instrument of honor and dishonor, as a vehicle for communication and consumption, as an exemplification of beauty and ugliness, and as a dancer and song-maker. Their findings open a new avenue for empathetically understanding the ancient Maya as living human beings who experienced the world as we do, through the body.
Ted Kosmatka's sensational new thriller, Prophet of Bones, thrusts readers into an alternate present. Paul Carlson, a brilliant young scientist, is summoned from his laboratory job to the remote Indonesian island of Flores to collect DNA samples from the ancient bones of a strange, new species of tool user unearthed by an archaeological dig. The questions the find raises seem to cast doubt on the very foundations of modern science, which has proven the world to be only 5,800 years old, but before Paul can fully grapple with the implications of his find, the dig is violently shut down by paramilitaries. Paul flees with two of his friends, yet within days one has vanished and the other is murdered in an attack that costs Paul an eye, and very nearly his life. Back in America, Paul tries to resume the comfortable life he left behind, but he can't cast the questions raised by the dig from his mind. Paul begins to piece together a puzzle which seems to threaten the very fabric of society, but world's governments and Martial Johnston, the eccentric billionaire who financed Paul's dig, will stop at nothing to silence him.
Certain works of fantasy are immediately recognizable as monuments, towering above the rest of the category. They have been written by the likes of Stephen R. Donaldson, Robert Jordan, and Terry Goodkind. Now add to that list David Farland, whose epic fantasy series began with The Runelords, continued in Brotherhood of the Wolf and the New York Times bestseller Wizardborn, and reaches its peak now in The Lair of Bones. Prince Gaborn, the Earth King, has defeated the forces arrayed against him each time before: the magical and human forces marshaled by Raj Ahten, who seeks immortality at any cost and has given up his humanity in trade; and the inhuman, innumerable, insectile hordes of the giant Reavers from under the Earth, whose motives are unknowable, but inimical to human life. Now there must be final confrontations, both on the field of battle, with the supernatural creature that Raj Ahten has become, and underground, in the cavernous homeland of the Reavers, where the sorcerous One True Master who rules them all lies in wait--in the Lair of Bones. The survival of the human race on Earth is at stake. At the Publisher's request, this title is being sold without Digital Rights Management Software (DRM) applied.
