Download or read book The Haunted House in Women s Ghost Stories written by Emma Liggins and published by Springer Nature. This book was released on 2020-06-30 with total page 307 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: This book explores Victorian and modernist haunted houses in female-authored ghost stories as representations of the architectural uncanny. It reconsiders the gendering of the supernatural in terms of unease, denial, disorientation, confinement and claustrophobia within domestic space. Drawing on spatial theory by Gaston Bachelard, Henri Lefebvre and Elizabeth Grosz, it analyses the reoccupation and appropriation of space by ghosts, women and servants as a means of addressing the opposition between the past and modernity. The chapters consider a range of haunted spaces, including ancestral mansions, ghostly gardens, suburban villas, Italian churches and houses subject to demolition and ruin. The ghost stories are read in the light of women’s non-fictional writing on architecture, travel, interior design, sacred space, technology, the ideal home and the servant problem. Women writers discussed include Elizabeth Gaskell, Margaret Oliphant, Vernon Lee, Edith Wharton, May Sinclair and Elizabeth Bowen. This book will appeal to students and researchers in the ghost story, Female Gothic and Victorian and modernist women’s writing, as well as general readers with an interest in the supernatural.

Download or read book Father Son Unholy Ghost written by K. M. Garner and published by Strategic Book Publishing & Rights Agency. This book was released on 2016-05-03 with total page 278 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: On August 14. 1990, a sniper massacred 41 innocent people from a high-rise building in Houston, Texas. The sniper, Kenneth Wilson, is killed by police. Kenneth turns out to be a University of Texas student, who by all accounts, is the least likely person to commit any crime, much less one as horrific as mass murder. Detective Deke Sullivan is assigned the case of finding a motive for the killings and any possible connection to subversive groups. Kenneth left a journal detailing the months prior to the killings. He recounts how he suddenly is unable to stay wake after 11 a.m., and sleeps until at least 3 p.m. every day. He also tells of things that he has done during his “sleeping” hours. With the help of a psychic and fellow student named Karen Stevens, Kenneth learns that during those hours he is being controlled by a deceased killer named Ahmed Pfarzzi, who died ten years earlier, and that Ahmed is going to use him to continue his murderous rampage to honor his father. After Kenneth’s death, Ahmed gains possession of a new body, a cop, which he intends to use to kill both Deke, who’s finally been convinced that possession is real, and Karen. Together they must destroy Ahmed once and for all, as well as the house where Ahmed’s earthly reference point is located.

Nothing less than a whole Bible can make a whole Christian.- --A. W. Tozer Key writings of one of the twentieth century's most profound Christian authors are married with the scriptures that A. W. Tozer loved, studied and wrote about over the course of his forty year ministry. Hendrickson Publishers is proud to introduce the A. W. Tozer Bible, which will introduce a whole generation of readers to his work. Tozer (1897-1963), an pastor, preacher, student and teacher, is perhaps the closest American writer to C. S. Lewis, with the same penetrating insights and straightforward use of language. His bracing words, which accompany related passages throughout this Bible, unlock many of the mysteries of the Scriptures in language that could have been written today. This unique volume features over 500 key selections and teachings, taken from more than 40 of Tozer's writings, ranging from seminal bestselling books like The Pursuit of God and The Attributes of God to lesser-known works such as The Size of the Soul and The Root of the Righteous. Each selection appears in one of three categories: On Scripture - Over 365 selections, each sharing the page with the Bible passage to which it refers, add depth and insight to a particular verse's application for the believer. Reflections - More than 100 writings that apply the deep meaning of the Christian faith to everyday life. Challenges - Nearly 100 entries, tied to scripture, that exhort the reader to resist compla¬cency in particular areas of one's -living out- the Word in the world.

Download or read book Home Advantage in Sport written by Miguel A. Gómez-Ruano and published by Routledge. This book was released on 2021-10-27 with total page 354 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: This is the first book exploring the concept of home advantage (HA), the well-known beneficial effect that players and teams derive from performing at home in all sports throughout the world. Despite the fact that the existence of HA dates back to the origins of organized sport in the late 19th century, its root causes and how they operate and interact with each other are still unclear and remain the topic of intense research involving many disciplines, all with the potential objective of improving team and individual performance. This book covers a broad review of HA divided into three different sections: (i) Section 1 focuses on the theory of HA in sport (the concept of this phenomenon, its quantification, and factors supposedly associated with the HA are explored; (ii) Section 2 analyses the effects of HA in sports related to both male and female athletes, in relation to tactics and strategies, fans, referees, travel, situational variables and the home disadvantage; and (iii) Section 3 studies the HA as it applies to specific sports worldwide such as outdoor sports (football, rugby, cricket, and Australian Football), indoor sports (basketball, futsal, handball, water polo and volleyball), US professional sports, individual sports, racket sports, combat sports, minor sports, disabled sports and the Olympic Games. This book has been written in cooperation with top leading experts in this field worldwide. The book offers a better understanding of the HA effect for MSc and PhD students, athletes, coaches, performance analysts, sport psychologists, sociologists, sport scientists and sport journalists.
