"Luce e buio" è il secondo romanzo della Saga Sunrise, che segue il grande successo del primo titolo "Evoluzioni". L'umanità è relegata sottoterra da centinaia di anni in uno scenario post-apocalittico. Due ragazzi, aiutati da un indomito zio e una ragazzina droide dai poteri misteriosi, raggiungono il tanto atteso Livello 5. Iniziano così una nuova avventura, in un ambiente a loro sconosciuto, continuando la ricerca della verità e la personale lotta contro la Torre Centrale. Nuovi amici incroceranno i destini di Jeremy e JJ, ma anche nuove insidie renderanno la loro esperienza tutt'altro che semplice! "Il quinto livello era caratterizzato da una miriade di strade, tubature e rotaie sopraelevate che riempivano letteralmente tutto lo spazio respirabile; era impossibile avere una visione a lunga distanza, tale era la densità delle infrastrutture. Gli edifici erano tutti cubici, attaccati l'un l'altro seguendo regole architettoniche complicate, evidentemente teorizzate da qualche ingegnere robotico."

As Holderlin was to Martin Heidegger and Mallarme to Jacques Derrida, so is H.P. Lovecraft to the Speculative Realist philosophers. Lovecraft was one of the brightest stars of the horror and science fiction magazines, but died in poverty and relative obscurity in the 1930s. In 2005 he was finally elevated from pulp status to the classical literary canon with the release of a Library of America volume dedicated to his work. The impact of Lovecraft on philosophy has been building for more than a decade. Initially championed by shadowy guru Nick Land at Warwick during the 1990s, he was later discovered to be an object of private fascination for all four original members of the twenty-first century Speculative Realist movement. In this book, Graham Harman extracts the basic philosophical concepts underlying the work of Lovecraft, yielding a weird realism capable of freeing continental philosophy from its current soul-crushing impasse. Abandoning pious references by Heidegger to Holderlin and the Greeks, Harman develops a new philosophical mythology centered in such Lovecraftian figures as Cthulhu, Wilbur Whately, and the rat-like monstrosity Brown Jenkin. The Miskatonic River replaces the Rhine and the Ister, while Holderlin's Caucasus gives way to Lovecraft's Antarctic mountains of madness.

'The mentally ill suffer unnameable persecutions, no one knows why. They assume the role of the saint in today's society, since it is presumed that they, rarefied by their own madness, do not suffer like everyone else.' -- Alda Merini. 'In these pages, everything that is touched, even the most painful theme, is transformed into poetry. Every word is a key that finds organ pipes ready to amplify and sublimate the desperation. It's like finding one's self in front of a phenomenon of unconscious lyric power.' -- Ambrogio Borsani, from the Afterword.

Beloved New York Times bestselling author Mary Balogh spins two classic stories of Regency England—splendid novels of mistaken identity and unmistakable passion, where marriage is only the beginning of true love. THE FAMOUS HEROINE Cora Downes has beauty, spirit, and money, but no breeding. Yet when she gains renown for a daring rescue, she finds herself thrust into high society. Innocent and adrift in a world of beautiful banquets, bejeweled gowns, and snobbish standards, Cora is quickly compromised into a marriage—to a frivolous lord whose interests seem to lie elsewhere. But could piercingly blue-eyed and well-mannered Francis Kneller turn out to be the most unexpected love of her life? THE PLUMED BONNET Alistair Munro, the Duke of Bridgwater, is looking for love outside the bounds of polite society. And that’s what he expects to receive when he rescues a seemingly disreputable girl in a colorful bonnet off the side of the road. Yet Stephanie Gray, a former governess, has recently come into money and is eager for a proper match with a well-born man. Sure that he’s sullied her name, Alistair offers marriage to make amends. And in this unlikely union, Stephanie and Alistair make a welcome discovery—that sometimes it’s possible to marry first, then fall in love. From the Paperback edition.
