Description

The Giftie is based upon a very real historical character: the Reverend Robert Kirk, the Gaelic scholar of Aberfoyle who, it was widely believed among the locals, disappeared bodily into the Otherworld in 1691, and whose voice has been heard many times since, as he tries to get back again.

The Giftie is a multi-level tale about how Marcy Macleod, a troubled woman living in that quintessential English town of Bath, accidentally summons stirs and calls him up into the latter part of the 20th Century. In her eyes at least he is a magnificent creature, able to transform the way she looks, and even the way the world looks, when he touches her. He shows her that, far from being a broken, middle-aged, mentally-ill woman, she is in fact The Giftie, a ravishing creature of enchantment who, three centuries earlier, had caused him to lose himself in the Otherworld in the first place. He takes away her madness. He even takes away her cellulite. No longer is she perpetual Outsider. Together they explore the bleak city that Marcy has come to know and loathe. Under the power of his peculiar vision, they see the 20th Century streets of Bath as they would have been in Kirk s own time. His unique combativeness involves them both in many fights, and old scores are settled. She adores his fighting ability. His love-making. His humour. His hatred of the English. Under his love, she remembers her own innate powers and is able to show him the Gate Between, which then takes them back to the 17th Century.

The Voynich Manuscript The Voynich Manuscript
Clemens, Raymond
Yale University Press

Many call the fifteenth-century codex, commonly known as the Voynich Manuscript, the world s most mysterious book. Written in an unknown script by an unknown author, the manuscript has no clearer purpose now than when it was rediscovered in 1912 by rare books dealer Wilfrid Voynich. The manuscript appears and disappears throughout history, from the library of the Holy Roman Emperor Rudolf II to a secret sale of books in 1903 by the Society of Jesus in Rome. The book s language has eluded deciphe...

Schulke, Daniel A. (ed)
Three Hands Press

Limited to 800 copies

The Arcanum of the 'fallen angel' Lucifer evokes such concepts as heresy, rebellion, pride, liberation from the bonds of demiurgic oppression, and impetus for human evolution. Meaning 'light bearer', Lucifer has, from his earliest origins, been hailed by religious and artistic countercultures as a patron saint of enlightenment -- the essential quality embodying overthrow of ignorance and the inspired process of revelation. Allied to ancient Gnostic cosmological concepti...

Norse Mythology Norse Mythology
Gaiman, Neil
W.W. Norton & Co. Inc.

Neil Gaiman has long been inspired by ancient mythology in creating the fantastical realms of his fiction. Now he turns his attention back to the source, presenting a bravura rendition of the great northern tales.

In Norse Mythology, Gaiman stays true to the myths in envisioning the major Norse pantheon: Odin, the highest of the high, wise, daring, and cunning; Thor, Odin's son, incredibly strong yet not the wisest of gods; and Loki--son of a giant--blood brother to Odin and a trick...
