My Hypocrisy Knows No End! Ive fallen weary to the unyielding lustful grips of being a Sodomite for as long as I could remember; I Bite! its what I do best and Ive taken a big chunk out of my Beloved ShinShins life. Its taken some time to work this out; Ive been selfishly contemplating while struggling on how I go about explaining this piece to you, You; the General Public. Thousands of pages full of written documents and recorded records that had been left behind for me to find, sort through and tell stories of. Volume Three will be about that of ShinShin-Igami; who has been an infectious thorn in my side all these past many years. ShinShin hasnt been as careless and reckless or a bastard like myself and although he tries many time to change the way he is; its seems that no one ever change who they really are; no matter how hard or how much theyve sacrificed to do so. People only find ways of covering up for who they really are and established a fictitious persona in faces of their associates. This piece will detail the relationship that ShinShin has been involved with a contagious succubus who drained him of his youth and vitality, where his World was turned upside down by a bitch of a mother and her conniving whored daughter. Although ShinShin recovered from his misfortunes with the opposite sex; he bears the scars and scabs that she left embedded all over his body and this unfortunate situation has made him realized that life is sometime filled with ill-hearted and untruthful people who will take advantage of an ignorant giving person like himself. The eighteen months relation that ShinShin had been involved only gave him few moments of pleasures and much headaches and heartaches that eventually led to his unfortunate unresolved comatose death these past months. The person that came up with the phrase, The apple doesnt fall very far from the tree! was absolutely correct in uttering that statement; ShinShin have found that to be very true in his personal life because he was involved with a dishonest female who took after her evil-hearted mother. ShinShins relationship with this deceiving female was complicated with lies and deceptions where a sinful mother and ignorant daughter took advantage of his ever giving heart and good nature. During their relations, ShinShin loved the contagious succubus absolutely, only to find that he was being played and used after an 18 months long devotions and commitments; she was seeing one other or more while they were intimately and passionately involved. Personally, I feel that ShinShin have been the victim of an ugly hearted person. ShinShin had given up much for this contagious ugly unruly person; financially and emotionally; shunning his extended family; good friends and their family, giving up on promotions and putting aside higher education to make time for what he thought was true love. Although their relationships has taken the intimate/involved couples on several trips locally and internationally and got the two to participate in various events and outings together where they have crossed the Atlantic and Pacific and during that entire time there were signs of her deceits and lies; and yet, being a Pagan Christian; ShinShin was so gullible that he ignored what was happening in front him. He was ignorantly in love and like they say, Love is blind, and blind like an asshole ShinShin was during that entire year and a half. He was much into this ugly-heart female and gave her his all and what he got in return wasnt nearly reciprocal. She has given him much heartache thats complicated with various mental/physical diseased infections. Ive had my share of ups and down in life; my early childhood was spent imprisoned, escaping and hiding away from the tyranny of the Khmer Rouge. After many years of relocating and moving around in various Refugee Encampments with my family, my early years in

This early work of poetry, by Aleister Crowley, was originally published in 1898. Born in Royal Leamington Spa, England in 1875, Crowley was raised by Christian fundamentalist parents. He attended Trinity College at Cambridge University, but left before graduating. After leaving the college, he devoted his time to studying the occult, and travelled extensively throughout the world in persuit of its secret knowledge. He went on to become a prolific writer, producing essays, prose and poetry on a wide range of subjects. To this day he remains a highly influential figure, both in occult circles and popular culture. Many of the earliest books, particularly those dating back to the 1900's and before, are now extremely scarce and increasingly expensive. We are republishing these classic works in affordable, high quality, modern editions.

This book explores this contemporary southern identity through an ethnographic analysis of southern rock music and the musicians who create it.
My name is Jerrard E Weigler. I grew up in the small city of Jerseyville, IL. I graduated from Jersey Community High School in 2002. After high school, I took a year off before enrolling for classes at Lewis and Clark Community College. Oddly enough, I was going to school for computer science. However, while I was attended college, my mother took ill. I took a few years off to help take care of her. And, when I went back, I found that computer science wasn’t really what I wanted. It was after I bought my fi rst laptop that I began writing. A lot of what I write into my stories pertain to my own personal experiences. Whether they are conversations that are similar to those that my friends and I have; or the aspects of being a ‘straight’ gay guy in a small town. I consider myself lucky, however. No body in my town seemed to be bothered by the fact that I am gay. I know that no so long ago things were very diff erent for homosexual men in smaller towns. I just want to thank all of my friends and family for their support. I would be lost without you all.
This playful whodunit featuring an Oxford don and a permanently silenced opera singer is “a splendidly intricate and superior locked-room mystery” (The New York Times). When an opera company gathers in Oxford for the first postwar production of Wagner's Die Meistersinger, its happiness is soon soured by the discovery that the unpleasant Edwin Shorthouse will be singing a leading role. Nearly everyone involved has reason to loathe Shorthouse, but who amongst them has the fiendish ingenuity to kill him in his own locked dressing room? In the course of this entertaining adventure, eccentric Oxford professor and amateur sleuth Gervase Fen has to unravel two murders, cope with the unpredictability of the artistic temperament, and attempt to encourage the course of true love. “One of the last exponents of the classical English detective story . . . elegant, literate, and funny.” —The Times of London “[Crispin’s] books are fast, fun and smart, their hero charming, frivolous, brilliant and badly behaved.” —New Review

An ancient Egyptian mummy is revived in 1935 New York to consult on his Hollywood biopic.

Whether reintroducing characters from the pages of Robert Louis Stevenson, Mark Twain, Franz Kafka, and Gaston Leroux, or performing dizzying displays of literary pyrotechnics, these stories are nothing less than a compendium of the marvelous.
