The Mercenary Major by Kate Moore

The Mercenary Major

A POSSIBLE HEIR
Escaping death in a stagecoach ambush which left him an orphan. Jack Amherly joined the ranks of the rowdy British army. But his eccentric aunt eventually tracks him down, and when the troops return to London, Aunt Letty makes it her mission to reintroduce her wayward nephew to the ton. . . and to find him a proper wife.

AN IMPOSSIBLE HEIRESS 
Alas, the outrageously unconventional Jack is taken for a fortune-seeking impostor, a circumstance he finds rather amusing given his disdain for young heiresses. But that is before he encounters the tantalizing Victoria Carr. She’s determined to ascertain the truth of his identity and get on with the pleasures of the Season. Yet exposing the handsome rascal who distracts her quickly turns to a risky game of hearts-one that is never dull for either player.

Cheyne éditeur, a small poetry publishing house, was celebrating its thirtieth anniversary with an open-air exhibition. That evening, Knight happened to attend a reading by French poet Ito Naga, who read from his collection of aphoristic poems Je sais (I Know).

Je sais is a quirky, literally wonder-full collection of 469 observations on life and the universe by an astrophysicist whose eye for detail is keen and whose sense of humor is refreshing. As Knight described it, “It’s profound without being ponderous, instructive without being pedantic, and engaging even at its most serious.”

What made the poet and his book even more interesting was the unusual path that he had taken to writing poetry: Ito Naga is the nom de plume of a French astrophysicist. He took his pseudonym in honor of his Japanese wife. Continue reading Interview: Meeting Ito Naga — Poetry and Science

Gods & Games – Now Available!

Gods and Games by David L. Miller

August 8, 2013 — Stillpoint Digital Press announces the release of a new ebook edition David L. Miller’s classic, thought-provoking reconciliation of religion and play, Gods & Games: Toward a Theology of Play.

A deeply thoughtful, deeply irreverent look at the mythology of play, Gods and Games ties together Joseph Campbell’s approach to myth and religion with Johan Huizinga’s view of our species as Homo ludens — “Man the Game-player” — suggesting that play is a central aspect of the human spirit and human culture.

A comprehensive and clear review…. loaded with quotations both pertinent and entertaining that may be eye-openers both to traditional religionists and readers who may never have thought about play in a philosophical or religious sense.” —Publishers Weekly
