It has been thirteen years since the 
last World War and the village of Lia Fail sits peacefully above the 
Hollywood Reservoir in the Santa Monica Mountains.  The settlement is 
making ready to host the fall Gathering. A time to remember the past as 
well as discover new loves, old friends, family, and fun, but just as the 
festivities begin, the people in Lia Fail begin to experience strange goings 
on they can't explain. Unseen forces attack several guests and friends 
begin to distrust friends.  When they receive news of a horrific 
massacre, they realize they must face an impending dark evil that 
threatens to destroy the tranquil village.  

 
 
Alia Stark, the queen of Lia Fail, must face this malevolent 
force alongside her oldest and dearest friends.  The fate of her 
people, the lives of her children and freedom itself rests in her hands. 
Will she have the courage to do what must be done... and at what price? 
  
This is the beginning of a journey that will change all of their 
lives forever.

    War has come to Discworld ... again. 
    And, to no one's great surprise, the conflict centers around the small, arrogantly fundamentalist duchy of Borogravia, which has long prided itself on its unrelenting aggressiveness. A year ago, Polly Perks's brother marched off to battle, and Polly's willing to resort to drastic measures to find him. So she cuts off her hair, dons masculine garb, and -- aided by a well-placed pair of socks -- sets out to join this man's army. Since a nation in such dire need of cannon fodder can't afford to be too picky, Polly is eagerly welcomed into the fighting fold—along with a vampire, a troll, an Igor, a religious fanatic, and two uncommonly close "friends." It would appear that Polly "Ozzer" Perks isn't the only grunt with a secret. But duty calls, the  battlefield beckons. And now is the time for all good ... er ... "men" to come to the aid of their country.

    Not that she’s counting.
    
     
    When she signed a contract giving her soul and memories to a demon named Ander, she didn’t expect that she would ever have to face termination. But now Ander is dead and she’ll be following suit if she can’t find a way to dissolve the deal.

    Fritz Friederling, a billionaire demon hunter who owns several businesses in Hell, isn’t ready to give up on Isobel. But she isn’t sure that working with Fritz is better than dying.

    Genji Monogatari (The Tale of Genji) is the Japan's earliest novel and the most famous work in Japan's literary history. It remains the finest portrayal of court life in the classical Heian period, some ten centuries ago. The author, Murasaki Shikibu (Lady Murasaki) was a member of the celebrated Fujiwara clan, which virtually created the history and culture of the Heian age.The novel has for its theme the many loves of the radiantly charming Prince Genji, son of the emperor and paragon of the ladies of the court. But its underlying motif is the fleeting nature of life in a transient world of beauty and grace, of love and enmity. It is an incredibly absorbing tale, distinguished by the author's amazing insight in her treatment of human personality and human events.Its diversity of characters and its subtle inquiries into the meaning of life make it one of the most significant and memorable of books. Some have compared it with Proust's Remembrance of Things Past, and certainly there is validity in the comparison. It most decidedly deserves its place among the world's foremost literary classics. Genji Monogatari, an immensely long novel, is presented here in an abridged translation.
