Beyond considerable box office achievements, the success of Marvel's movie studios has opened up dialogue on social, economic and political concerns that challenge established values and beliefs.

A boy returns home from seminary to a family on the verge of collapse For almost seven years, Mrs. Fury has done nothing but think of Peter. Of her five children, he is the youngest, her darling boy whose future she planned out long ago. It was for Peter that she took one child out of college and married another off—for Peter that she sent a third to work at sea. She has sacrificed everything so that Peter could return to Ireland to study for the priesthood. He is to be the family’s salvation—but after seven years in seminary, Peter has failed. Mrs. Fury receives two telegrams: One telling her that Peter is coming home, the other bearing the news that her eldest son, Anthony, has fallen from his ship’s mast and is in a hospital in New York. With two slips of paper, Mrs. Fury’s hopes for the future are dashed. But this Irishwoman is strong as iron, and she will do whatever it takes to keep her family together—if only for Peter’s sake. The Furys is the first book of James Hanley’s acclaimed Furys Saga.

Britain's prisons have dealt with a vast range of inmates over the years - from infamous criminals to celebrities to the wrongfully convicted. Banged Up now tells the story of six of Britain's most notorious jails - Durham, Wandsworth, Pentonville, Wormwood Scrubs, Dartmoor and Holloway - and of the men and women who entered their gates, sometimes stood on their scaffolds and occasionally vanished before their time. There are famous faces like Oswald Mosley, Dr Crippen, Ruth Ellis and Frankie Fraser as well as the man who shot Martin Luther King Jr, the wartime double agent contacting Nazi spymasters with a transmitter in his cell, the doctor hanged as he smiled at the farewells of lovers, the con who defied a gangland godfather, aristocrats, arsonists and murderers. They have all been here, and the screws who guard Britain's prisons have seen it all. Banged Up uncovers the real, human, inside story of what really goes on behind the forbidding prison entrances and cell doors of Durham, Wandsworth, Pentonville, Wormwood Scrubs, Dartmoor and Holloway and reveals new stories of what life behind bars was really like for those unfortunate enough to hear the cell doors slam behind them.

Dorina Basarab is a dhampir—half-human, half-vampire. Subject to uncontrollable rages, most dhampirs live very short, very violent lives. But so far, Dory has managed to maintain her sanity by unleashing her anger on those demons and vampires who deserve killing... Dory is used to fighting hard and nasty. So when she wakes up in a strange scientific lab with a strange man standing over her, her first instinct is to take his head off. Luckily, the man is actually the master vampire Louis-Cesare, so he’s not an easy kill. It turns out that Dory had been working with a Vampire Senate task force on the smuggling of magical items and weaponry out of Faerie when she was captured and brought to the lab. But when Louis-Cesare rescues her, she has no memory of what happened to her. To find out what was done to her—and who is behind it—Dory will have to face off with fallen angels, the maddest of mad scientists, and a new breed of vampires that are far worse than undead…

Now available in paper for the first time, this classic text is about how an analyst analyzes. Rooted in the theory of psychoanalytic self psychology as put forth by Heinz Kohut and his colleagues, Treating the Self focuses on the application of the self-psychological concept of the psyche to the actual conduct of psychoanalytic treatment. The result is not a "how-to" approach, but rather a volume that suggests a theory of treatment and offers guidelines for creative ways of thinking about therapy. Written by Ernest Wolf, a close collaborator of Heinz Kohut, this is a personal account of the process of self psychology presented by one of the foremost experts in the field.

Officer Damon Darwin of the Houston Police Department is young and new to the police force, so he's surprised to find himself facing a brutal sniper using the nickname Silent Fury, who terrorizes the city of Houston, Texas. This vicious killer informs Darwin of the time, place, and body count every time that he contacts the officer. These body counts have escalated by a factor of five with each killing, and he tells Darwin he won't stop until they reach a total of fifty. And once the count reaches fifty, Silent Fury plans to destroy a maternity ward. He delights in taunting Darwin, informing him that only the officer holds the key to stopping this deadly crime spree. It becomes personal when Silent Fury murders HPD Officer Norman Prescott, Darwin's soonto- be-retired partner, right before Darwin's eyes. Darwin must struggle with his own personal demons while desperately trying to stop the crazed murderer before he kills again.
