After two thousand years, the Desanti god known as the Raging One was freed from his imprisonment, releasing the Sundered Lands from the chains slowly tearing apart the fabric of reality. Except freedom came with a heavy price. Almek must reverse the accelerated degradation of time on his body before it’s too late. Only by returning to the Fortress of the goddess of time will he be able to stop the damage. Although powerful, Almek’s students cannot alter the natural course of the seasons, and the onset of winter makes travel impossible. The victory they gained will be lost unless two long-time enemies bridge the chasm between their cultures in time to save their friend and master.

Samara is one of the Knowing, and the Knowing do not forget. Hidden deep in the comfort and splendor of her underground city, a refuge from the menace of a coming Earth, Samara learns what she should have never known and creates a memory so terrible she cannot live with it. So she flees, to Canaan, the lost city of her ancestors, to Forget. Beckett has flown through the stars to find a dream: Canaan, the most infamous social experiment of Earth's antiquity. Beckett finds Samara in the ruins of the lost city, and uncovers so much more than he ever bargained for -- a challenge to all he's ever believed in or sworn to. When planets collide and memories clash, can Samara and Beckett save two worlds, and remember love in a place that has forgotten it? At once thought-provoking and utterly thrilling, this extraordinary companion novel to Sharon Cameron's #1 New York Times bestselling The Forgetting explores the truth and loss that lie within memory, and the bonds that hold us together.

The Artist as Storyteller in Contemporary Performance

This hands-on guidebook to creating and understanding performance pieces offers a behind-the-scenes look at the creative process involved in transforming personal stories to theater. A choreographer herself, Louise Steinman interviews some of the most interesting post-Judson performers of the last decade - Trisha Brown, Ping Chong, Meredith Monk, Whoopi Goldberg, Spaulding Gray, and a host of others. She weaves descriptions of her own path as a writer and performer into a thesis which demonstrates how one can work towards developing an authentic voice. Healing ourselves and the world is possible through art, Steinman says, but we must honor our personal and cultural histories. Steinman describes how these performers use very wide-ranging tools: drumming, shamanic trance dance, ventriloquism, the creation of archetypes to build a character. They use their body's "native language", make use of dreams, memory, and improvisation, and build small stories into larger collective tales, offering warmth and connection. As she says in a new Preface, "stories can be both healing and a radical act".

The world is virtual, but the danger is real in book one of the bestselling Mortality Doctrine series, the next phenomenon from the author of the Maze Runner series, James Dashner. Includes a sneak peek of The Fever Code, the highly-anticipated conclusion to the Maze Runner series—the novel that finally reveals how the maze was built! The VirtNet offers total mind and body immersion, and the more hacking skills you have, the more fun it is. Why bother following the rules when it’s so easy to break them? But some rules were made for a reason. Some technology is too dangerous to fool with. And one gamer has been doing exactly that, with murderous results. The government knows that to catch a hacker, you need a hacker. And they’ve been watching Michael. If he accepts their challenge, Michael will need to go off the VirtNet grid, to the back alleys and corners of the system human eyes have never seen—and it’s possible that the line between game and reality will be blurred forever. The author who brought you the #1 New York Times bestselling MAZE RUNNER series and two #1 movies—The Maze Runner and The Scorch Trials—now brings you an electrifying adventure trilogy an edge-of-your-seat adventure that takes you into a world of hyperadvanced technology, cyber terrorists, and gaming beyond your wildest dreams . . . and your worst nightmares. Praise for the Bestselling MORTALITY DOCTRINE series: “Dashner takes full advantage of the Matrix-esque potential for asking ‘what is real.’” — “Set in a world taken over by virtual reality gaming, the series perfectly capture[s] Dashner’s hallmarks for inventiveness, teen dialogue and an ability to add twists and turns like no other author.” — “A brilliant, visceral, gamified mash-up of The Matrix and Inception, guaranteed to thrill even the non-gaming crowd.” —Christian Science Monitor
