Book excerpt: A once-glittering music hall now hides dark mysteries in this atmospheric thriller set in both present day and Edwardian London. A hundred years ago, the Tarleton Music Hall on London's south bank was one of the city's most popular attractions. People lined up night after night to see its headliner, the legendary song-and-dance man Toby Chance. But that was before Toby disappeared in 1914. People were shocked to see the Tarleton suddenly locked up. But that’s how it’s been ever since. Today, with property prices soaring, an investment group hires Robert Fallon to survey the place. Fallon is as charmed by the project, especially when he hears the rumors of a Singing Ghost who haunts the building. But he must admit that something is indeed odd about the Tarleton. What, for instance, can be made of the mysterious wall in the basement? Fallon delves into the Tarleton’s history, and learns the story of the brilliant but troubled Toby Chance. But the deeper he goes, the harder it is to shake the feeling that he is being menaced by the past.
Download or read book The Ghost dance Religion and the Sioux Outbreak of 1890 written by James Mooney and published by U of Nebraska Press. This book was released on 1991-01-01 with total page 568 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Responding to the rapid spread of the Ghost Dance among tribes of the western United States in the early 1890s, James Mooney set out to describe and understand the phenomenon. He visited Wovoka, the Ghost Dance prophet, at his home in Nevada and traced the progress of the Ghost Dance from place to place, describing the ritual and recording the distinctive song lyrics of seven separate tribes. His classic work (first published in 1896 and here reprinted in its entirety for the first time) includes succinct cultural and historical introductions to each of those tribal groups and depicts the Ghost Dance among the Sioux, the fears it raised of an Indian outbreak, and the military occupation of the Sioux reservations culminating in the tragedy at Wounded Knee. Seeking to demonstrate that the Ghost Dance was a legitimate religious movement, Mooney prefaced his study with a historical survey of comparable millenarian movements among other American Indian groups. In addition to his work on the Ghost Dance, James Mooney is best remembered for his extraordinarily detailed studies of the Cherokee Indians of the Southeast and the Kiowa and other tribes of the southern plains, and for his advocacy of American Indian religious freedom.

Download or read book Songs of Love and Horror Collected Lyrics of Will Oldham written by Will Oldham and published by W. W. Norton & Company. This book was released on 2018-10-09 with total page 304 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: The definitive collection of lyrics from three decades of songwriting. As a performer, songwriter, and actor, Will Oldham has carved a singular path through the worlds of indie folk and cinema. Now the critically acclaimed, enigmatic artist presents his life’s work: the lyrics to more than two hundred songs spanning the 1980s to the present, each with annotations that impart new meaning to his music. Oldham’s aphoristic meditations—on death, patience, and turning carelessness into a virtue—are, like his lyrics, profound, earthy, and often funny. They reveal flashes of Oldham’s philosophy, the sources and circumstances that inspired his lyrics, and the literary ambition of his songwriting. Separated from their aural form, Oldham’s lyrics become a new kind of poetry—candid, awkward, and wise—with influences as diverse as Rabindranath Tagore and The Mekons. A book that will delight his longtime fans and inspire young songwriters, Songs of Love and Horror reveals an artist who has captured extraordinary poetry in music despite being "a stranger among my own language."

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Fiddlesticks killed her with his razor. Slit her throat and then forgave her. Deep in the Appalachian woods stands the old Fiddlesticks cabin, the scene of a bloody double murder from decades past. Now the haunted cabin lures young thrill seekers who hope to hear the killer’s ghostly fiddle music. When a group of college students comes to call, Lisa Wilson—the daughter of a former North Carolina governor—is tragically murdered, and her flesh is mutilated with disturbing symbols. Pisgah County sheriff Jerry Cochran is in hot water when the ball-busting politician shows up, threatening to tear the county apart in search of his daughter’s killer. But Nick Stratton—the handsome raptor center specialist and Lisa’s boss—is in even hotter water when evidence points to him as the prime suspect. As Nick turns to attorney Mary Crow for help, it’s up to the Pisgah County native to discover the truth. Did Nick do it? Or is there a deranged mountain killer on the loose? Praise: "Bissell's fifth Mary Crow novel is an eerie tale that skillfully weaves folklore, Cherokee tradition and familial angst." —RT Book Reviews
