"DOUGLAS ADAMS IS A TERRIFIC SATIRIST." --The Washington Post Book World Facing annihilation at the hands of the warlike Vogons is a curious time to have a craving for tea. It could only happen to the cosmically displaced Arthur Dent and his curious comrades in arms as they hurtle across space powered by pure improbability--and desperately in search of a place to eat. Among Arthur's motley shipmates are Ford Prefect, a longtime friend and expert contributor to the Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy; Zaphod Beeblebrox, the three-armed, two-headed ex-president of the galaxy; Tricia McMillan, a fellow Earth refugee who's gone native (her name is Trillian now); and Marvin, the moody android who suffers nothing and no one very gladly. Their destination? The ultimate hot spot for an evening of apocalyptic entertainment and fine dining, where the food (literally) speaks for itself. Will they make it? The answer: hard to say. But bear in mind that the Hitchhiker's Guide deleted the term "Future Perfect" from its pages, since it was discovered not to be! "What's such fun is how amusing the galaxy looks through Adams' sardonically silly eyes." --Detroit Free Press From the Paperback edition.

Our universe is a strange and dangerous place, adrift in an infinite multiverse. Consider if you will, the phenomena of exploding suns, black holes, antimatter, vacuum energy, inflaton fields, quantum entanglement, wormholes, and the light-speed barrier that delays communication and movement in space. Consider the improbable and seemingly random events that produced the "just right" conditions for life on earth, and ask why worldwide extinctions over the last half-billion years enabled the relatively recent emergence of human intelligence. Consider why humans have not yet found any evidence of other spacefaring species, which begs the question: Why are we on this planet, in this universe, at this time, apparently alone? Only Legion, a man of the twentieth century can answer these and other questions as he uses his wits and superhuman abilities to fight his way to the stars and confronts extraterrestrial life in this galaxy and beyond.

Stairway to the Mind

The Controversial New Science of Consciousness

Author: Alwyn Scott

Publisher: Springer Science & Business Media

Human consciousness has perplexed philosophers, artists and scientists for centuries. Some hold it to be purely physical, while others believe it transcends the material world. Now comes a book that offers a new perspective - based entirely on evidence from the natural sciences - whereby materialism and dualism co-exist. The author - a distinguished pioneer of nonlinear dynamics - bases his argument on a hierarchical view of mental organization; a stairway. Atoms give rise to molecules, neurons form the brain and individual consciousness leads to shared culture. All steps are needed to complete the picture and each level derives from the previous one. The book shows specialists how each of their fields adds to the overall picture, while providing general readers with an introduction to this investigation.

Are you free to believe the unbelievable? Can you be amazed that a dove can have faith? Can you believe that a human heart prayed for a dove?"I stayed by my kitchen window, eyes shut and hands clenched, praying in the Spirit for The Dove in the Wind."The message of this book is not mine; it is the voice and song of Ruach the dove. She sings God's love story. It is the voice of the Holy Spirit speaking to all believers, no matter the country, the race, or religious denomination. It is the voice of God that fills us to overflow with the Spirit; calling us to the highest place; inviting us to seek Him in the fullness of Christ. It sings of freedom found at the cross and in the power of his resurrection. It is a call to make the Christian life real and practical.Since 2000, Dr. Silvia Lia Leigh has been co-pastor of Father's House Bible Church, Delta State, Nigeria. Her women's ministry has inspired women in Nigeria and around the world. She is the author of Sing Deborah Sing.

Songs in the Key of Z

The Curious Universe of Outsider Music

Author: Irwin Chusid

Publisher: Chicago Review Press

Category: Biography & Autobiography

Outsider musicians can be the product of damaged DNA, alien abduction, drug fry, demonic possession, or simply sheer obliviousness. This book profiles dozens of outsider musicians, both prominent and obscure--figures such as The Shaggs, Syd Barrett, Tiny Tim, Jandek, Captain Beefheart, Daniel Johnston, Harry Partch, and The Legendary Stardust Cowboy--and presents their strange life stories along with photographs, interviews, cartoons, and discographies. About the only things these self-taught artists have in common are an utter lack of conventional tunefulness and an overabundance of earnestness and passion. But, believe it or not, they're worth listening to, often outmatching all contenders for inventiveness and originality. A CD featuring songs by artists profiled in the book is also available.

Universe in Creation

A New Understanding of the Big Bang and the Emergence of Life

We know the universe has a history, but does it also have a story of self-creation to tell? Yes, in Roy R. Gould’s account. He offers a compelling narrative of how the universe—with no instruction other than its own laws—evolved into billions of galaxies and gave rise to life, including humans who have been trying for millennia to comprehend it. Far from being a random accident, the universe is hard at work, extracting order from chaos. Making use of the best current science, Gould turns what many assume to be true about the universe on its head. The cosmos expands inward, not outward. Gravity can drive things apart, not merely together. And the universe seems to defy entropy as it becomes more ordered, rather than the other way around. Strangest of all, the universe is exquisitely hospitable to life, despite its being constructed from undistinguished atoms and a few unexceptional rules of behavior. Universe in Creation explores whether the emergence of life, rather than being a mere cosmic afterthought, may be written into the most basic laws of nature. Offering a fresh take on what brought the world—and us—into being, Gould helps us see the universe as the master of its own creation, not tethered to a singular event but burgeoning as new space and energy continuously stream into existence. It is a very old story, as yet unfinished, with plotlines that twist and churn through infinite space and time.

Six insanely hilarious and touching short plays take a sly look at therapists, patients and the way love drives everyone just a little over the edge. The first three, collectively called New York Crazy, deal with two therapists fighting for the only hour left in their shrink's day, a divorced couple struggling over custody of their dog Harry, and a shy Mafia wife demanding, with gun in hand, that her therapist make her happy. California Crazy shifts to the west coast for three equally funny sessions: an annoyed psychiatrist tries to end therapy with a burnt out rock star who can only sleep soundly during his weekly sessions; a wacky young woman teaches a stuffy head doctor a thing or two about love; and a married couple with intergalactic problems seeks treatment with a husband and wife team of marriage counselors who are on the verge of divorce themselves. Whether performed individually or as a two act, full length entertainment, the laughter will be therapeutic.

Congratulations! You're holding the world's first off-planet yoga manual! And believe it or not, this book contains over five new schools of yoga that were single-handedly discovered by Joel Goldman while staring at the cosmos one evening. From life aboard the International Space Station today to the forthcoming manned missions to the moon and Mars, mankind is moving out into space and adjusting to different ways of life outside Earth's environment. Goldman explores extraterrestrial travel and shows that not only can yoga help us adjust to it, but that the frontiers of yoga can be pioneered outside the confines of gravity. Whether you're a budding astronaut new to yoga, or a budding yogi new to space, this is the book for you! Anyone curious about both will enjoy this humorous and enthusiastic journey into near-orbit, the near future, and beyond! Joel Goldman's interest in space missions and comedy began early in life. He first studied yoga while traveling in Nepal during college, and his fascination with it drew him back to India soon after. Unable to decide between yoga and space, he became a chiropractor instead. Goldman is working on a number of sequels to this work including: Martial Arts on the Moon and Beyond, Golf on the Moon and Beyond, and SCUBA diving on the Moon and Beyond.For now, though, he's busy cleaning his telescope so he can get a better handle on what's going on out there.
