PharaohSpirit of the Century Presents: The Pharaoh of Hong Kong

If curiosity killed the cat, Benjamin Hu could solve the crime…

But Benjamin’s latest mystery has nothing to do with feline assassins. With the aid of his bodyguard-slash-cook Clayton and special computational agent Dr. Fang Mei, Benjamin pursues a cult with nefarious plans of a mathemagical nature. The Red Lands Cult has gotten their hands on a Methuselah Equation, and anything with his name on it ultimately equals no good.

If Benjamin doesn’t unravel their plans in time, they will bring to life an ancient enemy with the power to destroy the world. In order to bring the evildoers to justice, equations must be solved, villains dueled, and questionable meals consumed.

Never fear! Benjamin Hu is on the case.

ZombiesHow Zombies Conquered Popular Culture

The Multifarious Walking Dead in the 21st Century

Since the early 2000s, popular culture has experienced a "Zombie Renaissance," beginning in film and expanding into books, television, video games, theatre productions, phone apps, collectibles and toys.

Zombies have become allegorical figures embodying cultural anxieties, but they also serve as models for concepts in economics, political theory, neuroscience, psychology, computer science and astronomy. They are powerful, multifarious metaphors representing fears of contagion and doom but also isolation and abandonment, as well as troubling aspects of human cruelty, public spectacle and abusive relationships.

This critical examination of the 21st-century zombie phenomenon explores how and why the public imagination has been overrun by the undead horde.

How to Complete a First Draft in 30 Days and What to Do Next

One of these days, I'm going to sit down and write that novel....

Everyone thinks about doing it, yet most people who do start a novel end up stalling after a few chapters. Where do these would-be novelists go wrong? Are the characters dull and cliched? Did the story arc collapse? Did they succumb to a dreaded bout of "writer's block"? Or maybe it was all just taking too long?

These problems used to stop writers in their tracks, but nothing will get in your way after reading Write Your Novel in a Month. Author and instructor Jeff Gerke has created the perfect tool to show you how to prepare yourself to write your first draft in as little as 30 days. With Jeff's help, you will learn how to organize your ideas, create dynamic stories, develop believable characters, and flesh out the idea narrative for your novel--and not just for the rapid-fire first draft. Jeff walks you through the entire process, from initial idea to the important revision stage, and even explains what to do with your novel once you've finished.

Whether you are participating in National Novel Writing Month or you're simply hoping to complete a draft over winter break or your vacation, this book covers the entire scope of writing a novel and lays out exactly what you need to know to get it done fast and right.
