The main protagonist of Men Like Gods is Mr Barnstaple, a careful driver and depressive journalist writing for The Liberal newspaper. It is to his consternation, therefore, that while carefully motoring along the Maidenhead road he skids on a bend and finds himself in another world altogether - in short, a supposed Utopia. This Utopia has its own socialist government and is very similar to the Earth. However, as pathogens have been eliminated the newly arrived visitors from Earth pose a grave threat to the Utopians by compromising their already weak immune systems. The people from earth find themselves being quarantined until a solution to this problem can be found. As no progress is being made many begin to resent this isolation and before long some plot to take over Utopia. Mr Barnstaple finds himself a total outsider, both with the Utopians and his fellow earthlings, and escapes from the quarantine castle just as the Earthlings' revolt begins. How can he survive in this Utopia and how can he get back to his Earth? Men Like Gods was first published in 1923.

Literary Ghosts from the Victorians to Modernism

Literary Ghosts from the Victorians to Modernism Author Luke Thurston

This book resituates the ghost story as a matter of literary hospitality and as part of a vital prehistory of modernism, seeing it not as a quaint neo-gothic ornament, but as a powerful literary response to the technological and psychological disturbances that marked the end of the Victorian era. Linking little-studied authors like M. R. James and May Sinclair to such canonical figures as Dickens, Henry James, Woolf, and Joyce, Thurston argues that the literary ghost should be seen as no mere relic of gothic style but as a portal of discovery, an opening onto the central modernist problem of how to write ‘life itself.’ Ghost stories are split between an ironic, often parodic reference to Gothic style and an evocation of ‘life itself,’ an implicit repudiation of all literary style. Reading the ghost story as both a guest and a host story, this book traces the ghost as a disruptive figure in the ‘hospitable’ space of narrative from Maturin, Poe and Dickens to the fin de siècle, and then on into the twentieth century.

For the last four decades, the Order of Nine Angles has offered its initiates a traditional system of occult and sinister training that is designed to create Adepts. This system, if correctly followed, brings the initiate into contact with acausal energies and entities that are outside the realm of mundane experience. This is not an easy process, and not for the faint of heart. This volume presents several of the texts related to pathworking and sinister esotericism from the Hostia volumes, and adds to it the entire Sinister Tarot of ONA's Christos Beest.

THE SINISTER TRADITION is an authorized edition of three core works of the Order of Nine Angles: the Grimoire of Baphomet, Codex Saerus, and Naos. The Order is one of the oldest schools to codify Satanic practice, and these texts form the basis of the ONA's hermetic Seven-Fold Way, and the system of Traditional Satanism. Herein is described a way of sinister, predatory spirituality which will challenge its readers to find and defy the limits of self and society. Through the Grimoire of Baphomet, Codex Saerus, and Naos, the initiate learns the basics of the Septenary system, the mythos of the Dark Gods, the basics of Sinister Sorcery, Sinister Chant, the Star Game, and the Seven-Fold Way leading to Adepthood and beyond.

In clear, readable language, consultant and researcher Kevin Desouza accomplishes an unlikely feat: explaining artificial intelligence to nonspecialists, in a way that experts will recognize and accept as correct and immediately applicable. Workers in knowledge management are relatively isolated from each other, businesspeople are still unconvinced that artificial intelligence has much to offer, and engineers creating the latest algorithm or device seldom consider its value for businesspeople—Desouza seeks to change all that. He maintains that knowledge will be traded like physical goods, and that businesses must leverage knowledge resources within its organizations to survive in a highly competitive marketplace. Introducing us the concepts and significance of knowledge management, he shows that incorporating artificial intelligence computer-based techniques into business settings can provide truly significant gains in productivity. This book is among the first of its kind to provide a comprehensive one-stop guide to the basics of knowledge management, plus a lucid explanation of A.I., and how to use it in almost all types of organizational settings.

A mystic tradition can be considered a path or school of spirituality in which ones seeks a direct, personal experience of the Divine Presence - in whatever form that may be - without barriers or intermediaries. It could be said that while religions offer believers a system of belief, mystic traditions offer practitioners a system of experience. In Mysticism in the 21st Century (2nd edition), Monette examines eight contemporary spiritual movements: African Traditional, Buddhism, Gnosticism, Hermeticism, Sufism, Tantra, Witchcraft, and Yoga, providing the reader with an introduction to this branch of the study of religion. In additional to detailed notes, each chapter also includes a recommended reading list for further study, online sources, and review questions at the end of each chapter. Dr. Connell R. Monette is Associate Professor of Religion at Al Akhawayn University in Ifrane (Morocco), where he also serves as Mohammed VI Library Associate Director. He has a Ph.D. in Medieval Studies from University of Toronto, and his major areas of research are medieval literature and religion.

Strategic planning expert William Rouse cuts to the heart of the most common causes of failed business plans and strategies and shows how to overcome them.
