Summary

Three women relate their harrowing stories in this powerful true crime collection. This volume includes three accounts of horrifying crimes told by women involved in them, whether as victim, witness, or family member:  You Have a Very Soft Voice, Susan: This is not a typical story of Internet stalking. It is an unusual case of friendship and deception so pitiless and unyielding that it opened a door to Hell into the author’s life. This is an unforgettable story for today’s digital world driven by social media in all of its permutations and cruelest forms.   “A harrowing and visceral read. Fensten takes you straight into the heart of darkness in her debut book. A must-have for true crime readers everywhere.” —Jesse P. Pollack, author of The Acid King  Daddy’s Little Secret: In this poignant story, a daughter tells of learning about her father’s double life upon his murder, and her quest to assist the detectives—along the way discovering deadly secrets that could help her father’s killer escape the death penalty should she come forward.   “An engrossing true story about alternative lifestyles, domination, hidden secrets and a late night murder.” —John Ferak, bestselling author of Failure of Justice  My Son, the Killer: In 2012, Luka Magnotta had earned his notoriety by videotaping himself stabbing Chinese student Lin Jun to death with an ice pick and dismembering the body, before posting the video online. After mailing Jun's hands and feet to elementary schools, he was arrested at an Internet café in Berlin where he was reading news stories about himself. This book tells the story with input from the killer’s estranged mother.   “One of the oddest murders of our times deserves one of the most interesting books of our times. This is it.” —Patrick Quinlan, Los Angeles Times–bestselling author of Smoked

    An innovative and insightful exploration of the passionate early life of Socrates and the influences that led him to become the first and greatest of philosophers 
     
    Socrates: the philosopher whose questioning gave birth to the ideas of Western thought, and whose execution marked the end of the Athenian Golden Age. Yet despite his pre-eminence among the great thinkers of history, little of his life story is known. What we know tends to begin in his middle age and end with his trial and death. Our conception of Socrates has relied upon Plato and Xenophon – men who met him when he was in his fifties and a well-known figure in war-torn Athens. 
      
    There is mystery at the heart of Socrates' story: what turned the young Socrates into a philosopher? What drove him to pursue with such persistence, at the cost of social acceptance and ultimately of his life, a whole new way of thinking about the meaning of existence? 
      
     In this revisionist biography, Armand D'Angour draws on neglected sources to explore the passions and motivations of young Socrates, showing how love transformed him into the philosopher he was to become. What emerges is the figure of Socrates as never previously portrayed: a heroic warrior, an athletic wrestler and dancer – and a passionate lover. Socrates in Love sheds new light on the formative journey of the philosopher, finally revealing the identity of the woman who Socrates claimed inspired him to develop ideas that have captivated thinkers for 2,500 years.

    A Pluralistic Universe

    William James

    In May 1908 William James, a gifted and popular lecturer, delivered a series of eight Hibbert Lectures at Manchester College, Oxford, on “The Present Situation in Philosophy.” These were published in 1909 as "A Pluralistic Universe."
    
    In “A Pluralistic Universe” James captures a new philosophic vision, at once intimate and realistic. He shares with his readers a view of the universe that is fresh, active, and novel. He defends the mystical and anti-pragmatic view that concepts distort rather than reveal reality. 
    The message conveyed is as relevant today as it was in his time.
