THE STONE SKY - Part One, Guests, was written as the first pan of a trilogy. It takes place in the Wright Dry Valley, a snow free portion of Antarctica. Part Two, Visitors is being prepared now for publication. Part Three. The Prime Directive, may not be written. The characters developed in the first two parts may not logically or psychologically allow it. Part Three may be the last four chapters of Part Two. As a first time novelist this character driven plot was an unplanned but pleasant surprise. THE STONE SKY, with no surprise, takes place under ground in great caverns. It deals with the Antarctic capture of a man and woman from the temperate zone. With an architect's mind, the center of the book looks at how the captors could exist. With only available materials, and only those modern conveniences left by contemporary Guests, why do the captors feel they need at least one of these new Guests? THE STONE SKY is science and fiction. It is not Science Fiction. It is an adventure in Antarctic caverns, and the controlling potential of human minds. For the two from our world, it is an adventure in seeing how many of our problems of food, shelter, energy and avarice can be solved by other means. Some of J.B. Langley's architectural back ground was in designing structures to imprison miscreants. Some was to Chair a Budget Commission and see how expensive and ineffective jail and prison operation can be. Some was to research for an Ed D. Can there be other ways? THE STONE SKY starts with the attempted freeing from his personal prison of one of the temperate escapees, The end of Part One reveals the mysteries and ramifications of that escape. A novelist once said. "Never describe a rifle hanging over the fire place unless you attend to shoot some one with it." Is this why there may never be a Part Three? THE STONE SKY will introduce you to an adventure with some exotic people living in an exotic place and solving every day problems with new human potential. It will keep you as it did the author guessing as to its rational outcome. Antarctica belongs to no one and to every one, including you. Do you enjoy challenge, adventure, mystery and romance? THE STONE SKY - Part Two, Visitors will be available shortly.

As the first novel opens, Titus, heir to Lord Sepulchrave, has just been born: he stands to inherit the miles of rambling stone and mortar that stand for Gormenghast Castle. Inside, all events are predetermined by a complex ritual, lost in history, understood only by Sourdust, Lord of the Library. There are tears and strange laughter; fierce births and deaths beneath umbrageous ceilings; dreams and violence and disenchantment contained within a labyrinth of stone.

Interest in word-meaning is on the increase among mainstream linguists again after a half-century of neglect. During this interval progress in phonology and syntax was great, but further progress in these sub-disciplines will remain blocked until it is recognized that the prime functional unit of speech is the word, that the central problem of language theory is lexis. Word-meaning is typically complicated by changes across time; for a theory of language creativity, these effects must be discerned from spontaneous creation. The articles brought together in this volume attempt to illuminate, on the basis of particular lexical studies, the dynamics of perception and word-meaning, of language and mind.

This book traces the journeys of a stone across the world. From its remote point of origin in the city of Nishapur in eastern Iran, turquoise was traded through India, Central Asia, and the Near East, becoming an object of imperial exchange between the Safavid, Mughal, and Ottoman empires. Along this trail unfolds the story of turquoise--a phosphate of aluminum and copper formed in rocks below the surface of the earth--and its discovery and export as a global commodity. In the material culture and imperial regalia of early modern Islamic tributary empires moving from the steppe to the sown, turquoise was a sacred stone and a potent symbol of power projected in vivid color displays. From the empires of Islamic Eurasia, the turquoise trade reached Europe, where the stone was collected as an exotic object from the East. The Eurasian trade lasted into the nineteenth century, when the oldest mines in Iran collapsed and lost Aztec mines in the Americas reopened, unearthing more accessible sources of the stone to rival the Persian blue. Sky Blue Stone recounts the origins, trade, and circulation of a natural object in the context of the history of Islamic Eurasia and global encounters between empire and nature.

A novel of primitive England and the birth of the breathtaking monoliths known as Stonehenge, from “a first-class storyteller” (People). In a time before recorded history, on an island that many centuries later would come to be known as Britain, Moloquin, the Unwanted One, dreams of a pathway to the heavens. Cast out as a child, he survives by his wits alone on the fringes of tribal society and grows into manhood driven by one powerful and unshakable ambition: to build a link between the earthly and the spiritual worlds through the raising of an impossible structure. But to accomplish such a momentous feat in this primitive age of stone will not only require superhuman strength, it will entail unraveling the very fabric of life. Still, Moloquin will not be deterred in his quest, and he will stand courageously against all enemies, court untold disaster, sacrifice what he must, and remake his entire world to see his great vision gloriously realized. One of today’s foremost historical novelists, Cecelia Holland explores the strange and enduring mystery of Stonehenge, one of the true wonders of the ancient and modern world. A breathtaking speculation, Pillar of the Sky is an unforgettable tale brimming with action, colorful characters, vivid detail, intelligence, and wonder, while presenting a possible history of the man-made miracle on Salisbury Plain that confounds scientists, scholars, and archaeologists to this day.

The Stone and the Shadow is a series of twelve volumes. It is the fable of Stone, who finds himself in the quest for several answers at a time that demands more insight than he can engender. Like many others, he thought his quest would end when he did find his answers; strangely, that was when the quest really began. His journey continues as he meets several magical personalities that accompany him as he stumbles across complicated hurdles and unexpected rewards in a strange land, where the laws of physics act peculiarly at every step. Stone’s chief mentor in this maze of exhilarating experiences is a youthful angelic-being by the name of Star who steers him wisely and wittily through a potentially disturbing string of incidences, as they inch closer to the titillating goal of their quest. The story of this quest is dedicated to the wisdom and peace that lies within each one of us.

Landscape is a powerful factor in the operation of memory because of the associations narrators make between the local landscape and the events of the stories they tell. Ancestors and mythological events often become fixed in a specific landscape and act as timeless reference points. In conventional anthropological literature, "landscape" is the term applied to the meaning local people bestow on their cultural and physical surroundings. In this work, the authors explore the cultural and physical landscapes an individual or cultural group has constructed to define the origins or beginnings of that cultural group as revealed through shared or traditional memory. The cultural landscapes of origins in diverse sites throughout the Americas are investigated through multidisciplinary research, not only to reveal the belief system and mythologies but also to place these origin beliefs in context and relationship to each other. In a continual interaction between the past, present, and future, time is subordinate to place, and history, as defined in Western academic terms, does not exist.
