Almost everyone does it. Presidents and common citizens. Most of the people you know and probably even you. Children and adults on their way to work and school. Whilst waiting for a bus, on the toilet or in the middle of a meal. We all look down at ascreen, scrolling like zombies through the flow of social media. Cat videos, advertisements, memes and selfies. It all flickers pastat a furious pace, seemingly with no purpose or afterthought. Scrollzombies is centered on the excessive use of social media. There are increasing reports of new medical conditions such as iHunch and SMS thumb, whilst, at the same time, there has been a rapid increase in mental health problems amongst young people. Many people suffer withdrawal-like symptoms connectedto disruptions in their access to social media. Issues that can be likened to those connected to other types of dependency - but are we really addicted? And, if so, how do we cure it? Sven Rollenhagen uses his expertise on digital dependencies and has a pragmatic attitude in which he advocates balance rather than total abstinence. There is no denial to the fact that social media is a great asset and offers many opportunities, bothpersonal and professional. In the book he offers several propo- sals for solutions that can make us more harmonious and feel that we have control over our behavior. In addition to many tips on creating digital balance, the book also contains a simple five-week program for those who want tolearn more about their use of social media and prevent or break an abuse.

A chance meeting with an old classmate leads Ryan Laughlin, a dedicated young physician, to an ancient Roman spa in a medieval village of Italy where researchers are studying two remarkable events that could change the course of history—a new technology that claims to measure the essence of life itself, the human spirit, and the final Dead Sea Scroll which was recently discovered in the West Bank. The Last Scroll reveals universal truths about the nature of life through Seven Blessing but warns of Seven Plagues of the Beast that are emerging this century causing alarm and protests around the world. While visiting the spa to learn these secrets and enjoy the food, wine, and culture of Italy, Ryan finds himself the target of a killer who claims the project is heresy and will do anything to stop it. In a deadly race through ancient Italy, he is desperately trying to save the only woman he has loved since the death of his wife. What insight and power lies within the fragmented pieces of the Last Scroll?

A zombie-obsessed teenager has his own way of navigating high school and family dysfunction in this “crazy, wicked, knockout of a book” (Garth Stein, author of The Art of Racing in the Rain). High school may be hell. But for fourteen-year-old Jeremy Barker, hell doesn’t end when the bell rings. His pill-addicted mother, sex-addicted brother, and mostly-absentee Vietnam-vet father aren’t much of an improvement over the bullies at his all-boys Catholic school. He stays sane by watching movies. Zombie movies, to be exact, that provide a useful code of survival: avoid contact, keep quiet, forget the past, lock-and-load, and fight to survive. His father’s also a fan, and watching zombie flicks together is their one way of father-son bonding. But even the wildest movie can’t prepare Jeremy for the day his English teacher slips his dad a DVD in the school parking lot—a home DVD of a macabre, ritual surgery. Jeremy’s father won’t say why he has the movie, or whether the gruesome spectacle is real. When his father disappears from the house yet again, Jeremy decides to investigate. Twisted, fast-paced, and hilarious, this coming-of-age novel is a brand-new take on growing up in a world full of people who don’t understand you—whether those people are your ninth-grade classmates or a horde of slavering zombies.

Regardless of how a person spends her or his day, in a classroom, in work or outside employment, whatever our thoughts, beliefs and experiences of life, all living is embodied. We are of and within our bodies. During the last thirty years, social scientists have increasingly turned their attention to the body as a site of both theoretical engagement and empirical exploration. Recently, public discourse has also become preoccupied with embodied debates: the 'obesity crisis' and the London 2012 Paralympics have located the body firmly in the realm of public interest. The new essays collected in Corporeality: The Body and Society demonstrate some of the unique advantages attainable through studying the body sociologically. Focusing in on a series of embodied fields related to lifestyle media, war, disability, drugs and mental health, the book re-states the fundamental importance of a body-centered approach in the social sciences. Work by established experts in the field sits side by side with new voices to provide an accessible and stimulating snap-shot of the role of the body in society in the early twenty-first century.

"She stared about in confusion before noticing something. The crystal rose was twinkling in the snow. She huddled down next to it. Her fingers stretched toward it, brushing the snow off from the pile it lay in. Intently, her hazel eyes lingered upon the rose. The red surface of the petals reflected her stare. She closed her eyes and clutching the rose closer to her chest. Her eyes opened. Golden light swam across her face and in an instant, she was gone only leaving a flash of light behind her." -passage from Shadow of Sohvan Shadow of Sohvan is a tale of heroics in an epic fantasy world filled with magic, monsters and the sword. The story follows the quest of a young girl to be reunited with her lost love. Her journey takes her from distant shores of the wizard isles to the Tomb of the Ancient Kings in the tall Iterian Mountains.
