Hannis Arc, working on the tapestry of lines linking constellations of elements that constituted the language of Creation recorded on the ancient Cerulean scroll spread out among the clutter on his desk, was not surprised to see the seven etherial forms billow into the room like acrid smoke driven on a breath of bitter breeze. Like an otherworldly collection of spectral shapes seemingly carried on random eddies of air, they wandered in a loose clutch among the still and silent mounted bears and beasts rising up on their stands, the small forest of stone pedestals holding massive books of recorded prophecy, and the evenly spaced display cases of oddities, their glass reflecting the firelight from the massive hearth at the side of the room. Since the seven rarely used doors, the shutters on the windows down on the ground level several stories below stood open as a fearless show of invitation. Though they frequently chose to use windows, they didn't actually need the windows any more than they needed the doors. They could seep through any opening, any crack, like vapor rising in the early morning from the stretches of stagnant water that lay in dark swaths through the peat

Sieben Jahre sind vergangen: Damien Thorn ist inzwischen dreizehn Jahre alt geworden. Er kennt seine Herkunft nicht, kämpft allerdings seit einiger Zeit mit einer unerklärlichen inneren Unruhe und entdeckt buchstäblich übermenschliche Kräfte an sich. Nach dem Tod seiner Eltern hat Richard Thorn, Jeremy Thorns Bruder, den Waisen aufgenommen und zieht ihn an der Seite seines Sohnes Mark auf. Die beiden Vettern besuchen eine elitäre Militärakademie, wo man ihnen das Rüstzeug vermitteln soll, das sie benötigen werden, wenn sie dereinst den weltumspannenden Thorn-Konzern übernehmen. Nach und nach sterben jedoch all jene, die Damien im Wege stehen, und am Ende ist er der Alleinerbe des Industrie-Imperiums: die Personifizierung der Macht des Bösen... Joseph Howard schrieb den ebenso düsteren wie spannungsgeladenen Roman zum Film Damien – Das Omen II (nach dem Drehbuch von Stanley Mann und Michael Hodges), der im Jahre 1978 ein weltweiter Kino-Erfolg wurde: mit William Holden, Lee Grant, Lance Henrikensen und Jonathan Scott-Taylor in den Hauptrollen (unter der Regie von Don Taylor).

Storytime in India

Stories are the backbone of ethnographic research. During fieldwork, subjects describe their lives through stories. Afterward ethnographers come home from their journeys with stories of their own about their experiences in the field. Storytime in India is an exploration of the stories that come out of ethnographic fieldwork. Helen Priscilla Myers and Umesh Chandra Pandey examine the ways in which their research collecting Bhojpuri wedding songs became interwoven with the stories of their lives, their work together, and their shared experience reading The Eustace Diamonds by Anthony Trollope. Moving through these intertwined stories, the reader learns about the complete Bhojpuri wedding tradition through songs sung by Gangajali and access to the original song recordings and their translations. In the interludes, Pandey reads and interprets The Eustace Diamonds, confronting the reader with the ever-present influence of colonialism, both in India and in ethnographic fieldwork. Interwoven throughout are stories of the everyday, highlighting the ups and downs of the ethnographic experience. Storytime in India combines the style of the Victorian novel with the structure of traditional Indian village tales, in which stories are told within stories. This book questions how we can and should present ethnography as well as what we really

The Omen (1976) is perhaps the best in the devil-child cycle of movies that followed in the wake of Rosemary's Baby and The Exorcist. Released to a highly suggestible public, The Omen was a critical and commercial success, in no small part due to an elaborate pre-sell campaign that played on apocalyptic fears and a renewed belief in the Devil and the supernatural. It's a film that works on different levels, is imbued with nuance, meaning and subtext, and is open to opposinginterpretations.Adrian Schober's Devil's Advocate covers the genesis, authorship, production history, marketing and reception of the film before going on to examine the overarching theme of paranoia: paranoia about government and conspiracy; paranoia about child rearing (especially, if one strips away the layer of Satanism); and paranoia about imagined threats to the hardening-right-wing Establishment from liberal and post-countercultural forces of the 1970s.

Spirit and Stone. Song and Sky. Fate and Future all align. On my seventeenth birthday, I finally heard Fate's voice. He whispered to me again and again, insisting I find the Omen of Stones. Having never heard of such lore, I thought I could ignore his pleas. The Summer Solstice proved otherwise. Being surrounded by fellow witches worked my magic up into a powerful swell that crashed and churned within me. As the energy crackled through my veins, I shunned my royal duties to follow the call of my heart. Venturing beyond the safety of the Kingdom's borders, I felt Fate nudging me toward a destiny I was eager to claim. Confidence in my craft blinded me from the ominous clouds of danger that roiled on the horizon. Captured by purists dead-set on purging the Kingdom of magic and witches, my salvation came in the form of a mysterious girl who wielded stones like daggers. Something about her called to me, whispering we were stronger together, strong enough to stand against the dark forces threatening to crush my kingdom. Trusting Fate could jeopardize my heritage and my throne, but defying him could cost Omen's life. The Omen of Stones is
Roman Augural Lore in Greek Historiography

Type: BOOK - Published: 2001 - Publisher: Franz Steiner Verlag
The augurs, the official Roman diviners, had a significant role in the public life of the Roman Republic. However, to recover the facts concerning their rites and doctrine is a difficult task because of the defectiveness and the fragmentary nature of our sources. This book offers the first thorough examination of the ways in which the augural doctrine has been treated by the Greek historians who have written about Rome. The main bulk of its material derives from four prominent writers of the Roman period: Dionysius of Halicarnassus, Plutarch, Appian and Cassius Dio. Analysing the Greek sources from the point of view of language, style, bilingualism, and cultural context, the author not only sheds light on disputed matters of augural doctrine and Roman constitution, but also offers a good deal of new material that in various ways clarifies the meeting of the two cultures.
