Chris Grosso invites us to sit in on conversations with beloved luminaries and bestselling authors such as Ram Dass, Lissa Rankin, Noah Levine, Gabor Mate, and Sharon Salzberg to discover why people return to self-defeating behaviors—drugs, alcohol, unhealthy eating, sex, media—and how they can recover, heal, and thrive. In his recovery from drugs and alcohol, Chris Grosso has stumbled, staggered, and started all over again. In an effort to understand why he relapses, and why many of us return to the myriad of other self-defeating behaviors despite our better judgment, he went to bestselling authors, spiritual teachers, psychologists, doctors, and more, and asked them why we tend to repeat mistakes in our lives, even when we know these actions will harm us and the ones we love. In Dead Set on Living, Chris shares these intimate conversations and the practices that have taught him to be more loving, compassionate, and forgiving with himself as well as new meditation and healing techniques he learned through his journey. Unabashedly honest and inspiring, Dead Set on Living is essential reading for anyone seeking a path towards triumph over adversity, understanding the human condition, and rebuilding relationships after promises have been broken.

"I hate weddings. If you had an older sister like Sky, you would too. Sky was perfect. Her wedding was perfect. It almost killed her. "I'm Daria, the rebellious indie film critic, the fat sister. Nobody expected me to get married. Eight years after Sky's wedding, the rose petal perfection of it all still hung cover me like a mocking pink cloud. Not that I didn't have a love life -- or at least a sex life -- but I'll talk about the Worst Boyfriend Awards later." San Francisco indie indie film critic Daria MacClellan is most comfortable in a monster movie poster T-shirt and blue jeans. Yet when she falls in love and plans to marry, family drama hijacks her engagement and she's trapped into a formal wedding with her perfectionist, anorexic sister, Sky, planning the whole thing. Daria adores her fiance, but her wedding seems to be spiraling into a horror film. Will the spectre of a picture perfect wedding turn her into the Bride of the Living Dead? "Anyone needing a laugh-out-loud romance full of lovable and real people need look no further," says Margaret Vickers of BookWomanUnbound.blogspot.com. "Jane Austen meets the Marx Brothers," says Laurie Toby Edison, photographer, Women En Large. "Lynne Murray has written a delightful comedy of manners with impeccable politics."

New York Times bestselling author Daniel Kraus completes George A. Romero's brand-new masterpiece of zombie horror, the massive novel left unfinished at Romero's death! Download a FREE sneak peek today! George A. Romero invented the modem zombie with Night of the Living Dead, creating a monster that has become a key part of pop culture. Romero often felt hemmed in by the constraints of film-making. To tell the story of the rise of the zombies and the fall of the humanity the way it should be told, Romero turned to fiction. Unfortunately, when he died, the story was incomplete.

A pair of medical examiners find themselves battling a dead man who won't stay dead. It spreads quickly. In a Midwestern trailer park, a Black teenage girl and a Muslim immigrant battle newly-risen friends and family. On a US aircraft carrier, living sailors hide from dead ones while a fanatic makes a new religion out of death.

Scholars have recently achieved new insights into the many ways in which the dead and the living interacted from the Late Preclassic to the Conquest in Mesoamerica. The eight essays in this useful volume were written by well-known scholars who offer cross-disciplinary and synergistic insights into the varied articulations between the dead and those who survived them. From physically opening the tomb of their ancestors and carrying out ancestral heirlooms to periodic feasts, sacrifices, and other lavish ceremonies, heirs revisited death on a regular basis. The activities attributable to the dead, moreover, range from passively defining territorial boundaries to more active exploits, such as ÒdancingÓ at weddings and ÒwitnessingÓ royal accessions. The dead wereÑand continued to beÑa vital part of everyday life in Mesoamerican cultures. This book results from a symposium organized by the editors for an annual meeting of the Society for American Archaeology. The contributors employ historical sources, comparative art history, anthropology, and sociology, as well as archaeology and anthropology, to uncover surprising commonalities across cultures, including the manner in which the dead were politicized, the perceptions of reciprocity between the dead and the living, and the ways that the dead were used by the living to create, define, and renew social as well as family ties. In exploring larger issues of a Ògood deathÓ and the transition from death to ancestry, the contributors demonstrate that across Mesoamerica death was almost never accompanied by the extinction of a persona; it was more often the beginning of a social process than a conclusion.

That the entire reform and renewal movement in contemporary Catholicism is foredoomed is only one of the many controversial judgments in this highly controversial book. It is, however, much more than merely a book about current Catholic developments; it is a book that confronts the issue of Christianity's very survival as a religious force in the modern world. This is Charles Davis's most constructive and creative theological work to date. It critiques and demolishes only that it may redevelop and rebuild.

The Man from Misery and Other Poems is the book that almost never was. This collection of more than two hundred inspired poems took nearly thirteen years to create, and author Brandon Hodge fought an uphill battle for publication. The Man from Misery is a rich collection of poetry from the deepest parts of the heart where poetry should start, rich with themes like hate, anger, loss, lust, life, joy, and, most of all, love. Brandon began writing short stories as a child; when he was eleven years old, he discovered poetry. Poetry comes from the heart and from inside, and Brandon is no stranger to adversity and loss. Born with a serious illness, Brandon was told he would not live to be sixteen; but he overcame lung cancer, personal tragedy, and loss to become the poet he is today. His pain and personal experience have shaped his writing as well as his life.
