Wolves prowling the streets of Oxford. A Green Man haunting the Highlands ...Drawn from the dreaming spires of Oxford to the misty moors and glens of Scotland, Lewis expects little more than a pleasant weekend away. But the road north leads to a mystical crossroads, and he finds himself in a place where two worlds meet, in the time-between-times. The ancient Celts admitted no separation between this world and the Otherworld: the two were delicately interwoven, each dependent on the other. In The Paradise War this balance is disturbed - a breach has opened between the worlds and cosmic catastrophe threatens.

A “certainly weird . . . strangely wonderful . . . [and] often irresistible” search to find the real Garden of Eden (The New York Times Book Review). Where, precisely, was God’s Paradise? St. Augustine had a theory. So did medieval monks, John Calvin and Christopher Columbus. But when Darwin’s theory of evolution changed our understanding of human origins, shouldn’t the desire to put a literal Eden on the map have faded away? Not so fast. This “gloriously researched, pluckily written historical and anecdotal assay of humankind’s age-old quixotic quest for the exact location of the Biblical garden” (Elle) explores an obsession that has consumed scientists and theologians alike for centuries. To this day, the search continues, taken up by amateur explorers, clergymen, scholars, engineers and educators—romantic seekers all who started with the same simple-sounding Bible verses, only to end up at a different spot on the globe: Sri Lanka, the Seychelles, the North Pole, Mesopotamia, China, Iraq—and Ohio. Inspired by an Eden seeker in her own family, “Wilensky-Lanford approaches her subjects with respect, enthusiasm and conscientious research” (San Francisco Chronicle) as she traverses a century-spanning history provoking surprising insights into where we came from, what we did wrong, and where we go from here. And it all makes for “a lively journey” (Kirkus Reviews).

A wild, Jodorowsky-style graphic novel from Moldy Peaches cofounder Adam Green In War and Paradise, a graphic novel by creative polymath and Moldy Peaches founder Adam Green (born 1981), the internet meets the Middle Ages and satire becomes the most logical response to our own wildly confusing, nonsensical world. A spiritual sequel to the 2016 cult film Adam Green's Aladdin, the story follows our hero Pausanias, a geographer of the soul, alongside a cast of unconventional characters through a kaleidoscopic landscape of absurdism, illustrated in full color by musician Toby Goodshank, animator Tom Bayne and Green himself. Released concurrently with Green's tenth album Engine of Paradise, this book cuts social commentary with laughter and imagination, all reflected through the artist-musician's characteristically quirky style.
