Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: In Moonlight Bay, the hours after midnight can be a time of terror... In Fear Nothing, Dean Koontz weaves a spine-chilling novel, full of terror and suspense. Perfect for fans of Stephen King and Harlan Coben. 'Scary. Koontz can really spook, and his dialogue and pacing rival the best' - New York Post I have been one acquainted with the night. Christopher Snow is athletic, handsome enough, intelligent, romantic, funny. But his whole life has been affected by xeroderma pigmentosum, a rare genetic disorder that means his skin and eyes cannot be exposed to sunlight. Like all Xpers, Chris lives at night - and has never ventured beyond his hometown of Moonlight Bay, a place of picturesque beauty and haunting strangeness; he knows it as no one else can possibly know it, is intimate with its shadows and darkest hours. Despite the limitations imposed by nature, he has always been determined to lead the fullest life and, with the help of family and friends, he has on the whole succeeded. But for Chris - and all the inhabitants of Moonlight Bay - a terrible change is about to happen; a change of potentially catastrophic proportions. What readers are saying about Fear Nothing: 'Thought-provoking, intelligent and absolutely hilarious in places. Brilliant!' 'This book is typical Koontz, a thriller as well as a scary read that grabs you from the first page and pulls you right into the story' 'Whilst reading this, I felt like I was there, in the story. Shaking with fear, crying with anxiety, grinning with relief, and gripping my seat with excitement!'
Download or read Cognitive Grammar in Contemporary Fiction PDF, written by Chloe Harrison and published by John Benjamins Publishing Company. This book was released on 2017-05-24 with total page 176 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: This book proposes an extension of Cognitive Grammar (Langacker 1987, 1991, 2008) towards a cognitive discourse grammar, through the unique environment that literary stylistic application offers. Drawing upon contemporary research in cognitive stylistics (Text World Theory, deixis and mind-modelling, amongst others), the volume scales up central Cognitive Grammar concepts (such as construal, grounding, the reference point model and action chains) in order to explore the attenuation of experience – and how it is simulated – in literary reading. In particular, it considers a range of contemporary texts by Neil Gaiman, Jennifer Egan, Jonathan Safran Foer, Ian McEwan and Paul Auster. This application builds upon previous work that adopts Cognitive Grammar for literary analysis and provides the first extended account of Cognitive Grammar in contemporary fiction.

Book excerpt: Coming from sunny California, the mist-shrouded Academy was a shock, with its strange customs, ancient curriculum and study of Latin - the language of the dead. Then I discovered that the school has more than one dark secret... I also discovered Dante. Intelligent, elusive and devastatingly gorgeous, most people can't decide whether they love, hate or fear him. All I know is that when we're together, I've never felt more alive - or more afraid. "I really enjoyed this book, it was fast moving, gutsy and engaging. Once I picked it up I found it very hard to put it down. The plot was just fantastic, and original... What I loved most was the use of classic literature to help tell the story... It grabs you, and when it finishes you don't really know what to do with yourself. Superb." - The Book Bag

Book excerpt: The Complete Spellbound Trilogy Books 1-3 and Holiday Magic The only thing the teen witches Graylee and Charlene Perez have in common are their identical looks and refusal to date warlocks. When a suicide threat turns to murder, two tragic events unfold and it will take more than a resurrection spell to set things right. Three beguiling wizards offer assistance, but Gray doesn’t know who to trust.

Not until her diabolical twin sister decided to go on a rampage that could expose them. To add to the aggravation, coven reject Raj McKenna catches Gray performing a complex spell and is convinced they would make a powerful couple. He can delude himself all he wants. Gray has sworn off dating warlocks, especially delinquents who play with fire. But even Gray’s mysterious death won’t deter Raj, not after Gray is brought back from the great beyond. Only she’s not truly back. Her body’s still six feet under and she’s on borrowed time. There are forces threatening Gray’s existence and a powerful wizard willing to help . . . for a price. Gray doesn’t know who to trust or how long she has left before she vanishes for good, but she’s determined to stick around no matter what the cost. Book 2 (Duplicity): If Graylee Perez thought sharing a body with her twin sister was bad, dealing with a duplicate of herself is two times worse. Gray the second doesn’t seem to get that Lee’s boyfriend is off-limits. Then there’s the problem of Adrian Montez. He expects one of the Grays to be his. Nearly a year later, the council is on to them for past misdeeds; Lee, along with the rest of the coven, has lost control of her powers; and, Gray is being stalked by what looks like the Grim Reaper. If the two Grays work together, they may stand a chance of setting things right and making it out alive. Book 3 (Enchantment): Barcelona. Summer escape. Or so Graylee Perez thought until her old adversary, Adrian Montez, brings his magic show to Spain. Gray seeks out a Spanish wizard to help banish Adrian from her life once and for all. Instead, she tumbles headfirst into a love spell with the arrogant warlock. After Gray follows Adrian to Paris, she must face her true feelings and decide if Adrian’s worth fighting for. Holiday Magic: Every day is a gift worth celebrating—especially when you’ve died not once, but twice. Ever since giving up her powers, Lee has had to adjust to life without magic. It’s never been harder than when she and boyfriend Raj McKenna travel to Paris to spend winter break with Lee’s duplicate, Gray, and her boyfriend, Adrian Montez. Celebrating the holidays with the shifty warlock isn’t Lee’s idea of a holly jolly good time, but she fears poor Gray is still under the influence of a love spell. Why else would she settle down with the brute? It’s up to Lee to make sure her duplicate isn’t being duped.

For example, in 2011 in the USA 6.4 million children (11% of the total non-adult population) had been diagnosed with ADHD. The rate of ADHD diagnosis increased on average by approximately 5% per year from 2003 to 2011 (US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention). Switzerland is ranked 6th in the world, just behind the USA ,for the per capita consumption of the psychopharmaceutical Methylphenidat, used to "treat" children diagnosed with ADHD. Many school children are being "calmed down" with powerful and mindchanging psycho-pharmaceuticals. The drugs are claimed to cause better concentration and better performance. Every diagnosis is linked to an individual's personal fate. - Who is gaining here? Who is paying? (Sources and Bibliography in the Appendix.)
