Download or read A Thirst for Blood PDF, written by Steve Williams and published by Publishamerica Incorporated. This book was released on 2005-08-01 with total page 151 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: A Thirst for Blood originated from actual events that occurred in my life. We have all been there; weve been made fun of for the kind of clothes we wore or how poor we were. Children can be the cruelest of humans at times, thus I had my villain. My hero is an agent with the FBI who, while battling with the ghosts of his past, is sent, along with his partner, to a small town in North Carolina to investigate serial killings. But while there he falls in love with the prime suspect, the wife of a murder victim. Through a series of twists and turns of events, my agent soon finds himself involved with the reporter that crucified him in the newspaper while he was a cop in New Orleans. The climax comes when he figures out who the killer is, and instead of solving the case, he becomes a knight in shining armor to the woman he loves.
Download or read Blood Rush PDF, written by Jan Verplaetse and published by Reaktion Books. This book was released on 2020-03-16 with total page 320 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: As a young man, Jan Verplaetse saw a hare suspended from a meat hook, skinned and gutted. What struck him so forcefully at the time was not the animal itself, but the blood gently dripping from its mouth. His reaction prompted the start of a quest he undertakes in this book: to investigate our fascination with blood, the most vital of fluids. Blood Rush shows how, throughout history, blood has had the capacity to intoxicate us, to the point that we lose ourselves, whether in violence, through hunting, fighting, or killing, or in the vicarious thrill of watching sporting events, horror films, or video games. Are these feelings physical, or in our imagination? Where does the magic of blood come from? In his deeply researched and provocative narrative, Verplaetse moves from antiquity to the present, from magic to experimental psychology, from philosophy to religion and scientific discoveries, to demonstrate why blood at once attracts and repels us.
Download or read The Theatre of Death PDF, written by P J Klemp and published by Rutgers University Press. This book was released on 2016-10-19 with total page 344 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: This book discusses some rituals of justice—such as public executions, printed responses to the Archbishop of Canterbury’s execution speech, and King Charles I’s treason trial—in early modern England. Focusing on the ways in which genres shape these events’ multiple voices, I analyze the rituals’ genres and the diverse perspectives from which we must understand them. The execution ritual, like such cultural forms as plays and films, is a collaborative production that can be understood only, and only incompletely, by being alert to the presence of its many participants and their contributions. Each of these participants brings a voice to the execution ritual, whether it is the judge and jury or the victim, executioner, sheriff and other authorities, spiritual counselors, printer, or spectators and readers. And each has at least one role to play. No matter how powerful some institutions and individuals may appear, none has a monopoly over authority and how the events take shape on and beyond the scaffold. The centerpiece of the mid-seventeenth-century’s theatre of death was the condemned man’s last dying utterance. This study focuses on the words and contexts of many of those final speeches, including King Charles I’s (1649), Archbishop William Laud’s (1645), and the Earl of Strafford’s (1641), as well as those of less well known royalists and regicides. Where we situate ourselves to view, hear, and comprehend a public execution—through specific participants’ eyes, ears, and minds or accounts—shapes our interpretation of the ritual. It is impossible to achieve a singular, carefully indoctrinated meaning of an event as complex as a state-sponsored public execution. Along with the variety of voices and meanings, the nature and purpose of the rituals of justice maintain a significant amount of consistency in a number of eras and cultural contexts. Whether the focus is on the trial and execution of the Marian martyrs, English royalists in the 1640s and 1650s, or the Restoration’s regicides, the events draw on a set of cultural expectations or conventions. Because rituals of justice are shaped by diverse voices and agendas, with the participants’ scripts and counterscripts converging and colliding, they are dramatic moments conveying profound meanings.

Book excerpt: With Lilith supposedly destroyed on the mortal plane and a supernatural serial killer on the loose, Zoon and Bethany embark on a mission to find the being responsible for maliciously massacring scores of normal humans. The trail of dead bodies lead through several states and the clues allude to a vampire as being the culprit. Is Lilith STILL alive and is she responsible for the creation of such a creature? To complicate matters, Lucifer also begins his own search for the murderer, but everyone wonders why The King of Hell would be interested in a vampire? As Zoon discovers, finding the answers to that question only deepens the plot and leads to more questions. Is the killer actually evil—a cold-blooded, calculating assassin—or a reluctant, naive executioner manipulated by the most diabolical woman ever in existence? Zoon, and the rest of The Third Testament, may not want to know…
