There has been a recent revival of interest in the work of Polish film director Walerian Borowczyk, a label-defying auteur and "escape artist" if there ever was one. This collection serves as an introduction and a guide to Borowczyk's complex and ambiguous body of work, including panoramic views of the director's output, focused studies of particular movies, and more personal, impressionistic pieces. Taken together, these contributions comprise a wide-ranging survey that is markedly experimental in character, allowing scholars to gain insight into previously unnoticed aspects of Borowczyk's oeuvre.

Essays on American writers whose lives and careers span the history of hard-boiled writing, from its birth in American pulp magazines of the 1920s to the beginning of the twenty-first century. Characteristic of this writing is an objective viewpoint, impersonal tone, violent action, colloquial speech, touch characters and understated style, usually but not limited to detective or crime fiction.

Krone der Schöpfung? Vor 100 000 Jahren war der Homo sapiens noch ein unbedeutendes Tier, das unauffällig in einem abgelegenen Winkel des afrikanischen Kontinents lebte. Unsere Vorfahren teilten sich den Planeten mit mindestens fünf weiteren menschlichen Spezies, und die Rolle, die sie im Ökosystem spielten, war nicht größer als die von Gorillas, Libellen oder Quallen. Vor 70 000 Jahren dann vollzog sich ein mysteriöser und rascher Wandel mit dem Homo sapiens, und es war vor allem die Beschaffenheit seines Gehirns, die ihn zum Herren des Planeten und zum Schrecken des Ökosystems werden ließ. Bis heute hat sich diese Vorherrschaft stetig zugespitzt: Der Mensch hat die Fähigkeit zu schöpferischem und zu zerstörerischem Handeln wie kein anderes Lebewesen. Anschaulich, unterhaltsam und stellenweise hochkomisch zeichnet Yuval Harari die Geschichte des Menschen nach und zeigt alle großen, aber auch alle ambivalenten Momente unserer Menschwerdung.

Anna Zaires entführt ihre Leser in der deutschen Übersetzung ihres internationalen Bestsellers Close Liaisons in die nahe Zukunft der Erde. Die schönen aber gefährlichen Krinar haben sich auf der Erde niedergelassen und den Menschen ihre Alleinherrschaft entzogen. Die offizielle friedliche Koexistenz der beiden Rassen wird allerdings durch verschiedene Interessengruppen auf beiden Seiten untergraben, was zu unvorhersehbaren Verwicklungen führt. Von diesem Strudel der Ereignisse wird auch die schüchterne und introvertierte Studentin Mia Stalis erfasst, als sie eines Tages im Central Park dem geheimnisvollen aber höchst faszinierenden Krinar Korum begegnet. Für Korum ist es Begierde auf den ersten Blick und nichts und niemand kann ihn von seinem Vorhaben abbringen, Mia ganz für sich allein zu haben. Als Mia sich dagegen wehrt, setzt Korum all seine Verführungskünste ein, um der unerfahrenen Mia einen Einblick in die für sie völlig neue Welt der erotischen Leidenschaft zu geben. Allerdings hat diese unkonventionelle Beziehung der Beiden weit größere Auswirkungen auf die Zukunft ihrer Rassen, als sie denken... Wird Korum über Leidenschaft sein Ziel erreichen und Mia für sich gewinnen können? Wird Mia in Korum mehr als nur den Feind sehen können? Werden beide ihre persönlichen Interessen über die ihrer Rassen stellen, oder verfolgen sie ein höheres Ziel?

Garver by Landon Dixon Raw Garver. He shifted his hips, feeling a tightening in his dusty jeans, a warmth down below that had nothing to do with the hot sun or the hard ride he’d endured.

Given to Jalil as payment for her father’s gambling debts, he delights in teaching the headstrong young virgin that obedience leads to ecstasy and fulfilment.

Das Signal der Rennleitung, und die fünf Männer treten in die Pedale, sie rattern über das Kopfsteinpflaster von Paris, rechts und links die Menschen, die herrschaftlichen Fassaden, der Jubel, all das verschwimmt. Vor ihnen liegen 5.376 Kilometer, die sie retten sollen, und ein Wiedersehen ... Ein Buch über ein Abenteuer, kraftvoll und zugleich hochsensibel erzählt es von Ekstase, Freundschaft und dem Echo des Ersten Weltkriegs. Zu Beginn werden sie von den Franzosen nur belächelt, sie sind die aus Neuseeland, die mit dem veralteten Schrott und den lächerlichen Outfits. Dass sie es wieder bis nach Paris zurückschaffen werden, glauben sie selbst nicht. Doch nach kurzer Zeit sind sie Teil dieser sonderbaren Gemeinschaft, stoßen sich beim Sprintduell die Ellenbogen in die Rippen, jagen nachts lebensmüde die Alpen runter, betäuben sich nach der Etappe mit allem, was zur Verfügung steht. Doch in dieser von Kratern und Gräben zerfurchten Landschaft braucht es bald mehr als nur Entschlossenheit, um seinen eigenen Dämonen zu entfliehen ...
