“Every one of the 17 idiosyncratic short fantasies in this superior collection from Nebula and Philip K. Dick finalist Di Filippo is immaculately told” (Publishers Weekly). “Di Filippo is like gourmet potato chips to me. I can never eat just one of his stories.” —Harlan Ellison You can try to escape from the mundane, or with the help of Paul Di Filippo, you can take a short, meaningful break from it. In the vein of George Saunders or Michael Chabon, Di Filippo uses the tools of science fiction and the surreal to take a deep, richly felt look at humanity. His brand of funny, quirky, thoughtful, fast-moving, heart-warming, brain-bending stories exist across the entire spectrum of the fantastic from hard science fiction to satire to fantasy and on to horror, delivering a riotously entertaining string of modern fables and stories from tomorrow, now and anytime. After you read Paul Di Filippo, you’ll no longer see everyday life quite the same. The 17 stories in this collection allow us to encounter Salvador Dali stumbling through his own personalized afterlife; experience the hilariously odd life of Hiram P. Dottle from birth through death and on into several reincarnations; gaze in wonder as a boy is born without a brain and his skull is invaded by wild animals; and, in the title story, a professor of children’s literature discovers a bizarre set of similarities between a lost text and his illicit relationship with one of his students.

Yasi, Rasa and Ta are three restless children who live modest lower-middle-class lives at the edge of town, but their imaginations gleam with threads of many colours. Bored bicycles move away from their owners in the hope of being stolen ... A light bulb in a sari shop mischievously switches itself on and off ... Chalk doodles squirm and squiggle when adults are in the room ... Sandals lying by the door plead to be worn ... The adults who play their games must enter many worlds - the one that prevails and the ones that are possible. They mumble and ask questions, but time and again they realize that a single glance won't take in the whole sky. In The Windows in Our House Are Little Doors, Vinod Kumar Shukla unrolls dreamy wisdom and brocade-like moments that catch the light and dazzle. This 'novel in twenty-six stories' is a thing of sublime joy and pure delight.

Big Doors Swing On Small Hinges … In the same way that a big door swings on a much smaller hinge; the choices and decisions one makes in life produce a much larger outcome. The result may be good or it may be bad - it all hinges on your choice... your decision. In the English language the word “but” is small. However, the change it can produce or the outcome it brings can at times be large, exciting, profitable, or destructive. Truly the trajectory on one’s life can be forever altered. This is not only true for our day, it is also lived out many times in the Bible: “But Noah found favor in the eyes of God.” “But Daniel purposed in his heart.” “But Jonah... “ “But Judas... “ “But God... “ These stories and many more are seen in the book, Big Doors Swing on Small Hinges. Every chapter is a life lesson we can all profit from. Read them... and reap!

The Cold War officially ended in 1991 and opened a world of fresh opportunities for the Peace Corps. The fact that PCVs could move seamlessly into a constellation of states that once comprised the USSR is a testament to the flexibility and durability of the organization. All Peace Corps needs is an invitation. Volunteers are always ready to step up, learn a new language, learn some new skills, and then go to work in unfamiliar lands. Of the 40 stories in this volume, some reach back to early Peace Corps years in Iran and Turkey. Others engage with the newness of democratic freedoms, drawing back the curtain on old suspicions. Here you’ll see why walking a Thanksgiving carrot cake through a revolution is easy. But following a whole new script for free market, democratic customs? Not so much. And meanwhile, in Mongolia, you’ll learn how to celebrate the Lunar New Year with a shot of fermented horse milk, Cheers!

As news reports of the horrific December 2004 tsunami in Asia reached the rest of the world, commentators were quick to seize upon the disaster as proof of either God s power or God s nonexistence, asking over and over, How could a good and loving God if such exists allow such suffering? In The Doors of the Sea David Bentley Hart speaks at once to those skeptical of Christian faith and to those who use their Christian faith to rationalize senseless human suffering. He calls both to recognize in the worst catastrophes not the providential will of God but rather the ongoing struggle between the rebellious powers that enslave the world and the God who loves it wholly.

Many years ago, someone told me, that our heart has many doors. As time goes on, God will help us open and close those doors as we choose. Some of these doors could be full of joy and happiness, pain and sorrow, trails and tribulations, as well as, a special door for every person who's touched our lives. You'll find in this book, a poem that relates to whatever thoughts, you may have floating though your mind. Take but a moment to find a poem that perfectly suits you. Even, if dedicated to another, that doesn't mean that can't gather in the same sphere. In the event that only one person reads just one of these poems and can relate to the point of opening one door of your heart, then I have achieved success.

Contemporary poetry by an English Buddhist with an emphasis on the inner life, the nature of human experience, the quest for reality, truth and authenticity, living in harmony with nature and with others, recognising the spiritual working within the heart, the miraculous in our midst.

The role doors and windows play in shaping the life and structure of Roman private dwellings has been underestimated; they are structures that connect not only rooms but houses to the outside world, and they relate to privacy, security, and light in domestic spaces. This volume analyses these structures as an essential part of daily life.
