The River of Diamonds - Paperback

ID: 857753183

I.B.Tauris, UK, 2012. Softcover. Very Good Condition. Available Now. Book Description: Vampires and werewolves; phantoms and phantasms: looming out of the fog leaps the menacing spectre of the lycanthrope, ghoul or blood-crazed zombie. Intrigued by some of the most sinister, yet at the same time most compelling, legends of western civilization, Gregory L Reece dusts down his stake and crucifix, loads his silver bullets and takes off into the wilds in search of answers and fresh adventures. Rummaging around in crumbling tombs and cobwebbed sarcophagi, his latest quest leads him into the haunted realm of the dead and the undead: of those carnivorous, nocturnal hunters that might perhaps better be left undisturbed. Why, he asks, is our culture obsessed by the eerie and the macabre? Why, despite its horrors, does the 'dark side' of the supernatural - its seances and ghost-hunting, demonic possession and the occult - call to us with such dangerous allure? Whether tracking night-stalking werewolves, chanting black magic mantras with Satanists, or interviewing a funereal modern-day Count Dracula, Reece is determined to uncover the truth. A wry exploration of a secret and secretive subculture, 'Creatures of the Night' is at the same time a bold and startling journey into a wraithlike world that has so often seemed to lie beyond the limits of rational comprehension - until now. : Review: Praise for 'UFO Religion: Inside Flying Saucer Cults and Culture' - Both insightful and humorous ... Reece travels to the Mojave Desert to join a group scanning the night sky for alien visitors, considers reports of the so-called Men in Black and Tall Whites identified by many ufologists, and visits the twin ground zeros of U.S. UFO culture, Area 51 in Nevada and Roswell, New Mexico ... Consider this book an excellent introduction to its genuinely spacey subject. --'Booklist': 'In Creatures of the Night Gregory Reece takes us on a fascinating journey: into the dark forests of our imaginations and through the haunted castles of our deepest fears. Searching for the things that have terrified us for centuries, he peels back the pop culture skin of fantasy to reveal the flesh and bones of myth and history. Vampires, demons, and werewolves are just some of the creatures we encounter in his very entertaining book. More than them, though, he reveals how we meet ourselves, albeit in the oft-warped mirror of literature, film, and the everyday stage.' --Douglas E Cowan, Professor of Religious Studies, Renison University College/University of Waterloo; author of Sacred Terror: Religion and Horror on the Silver Screen and Sacred Space: The Quest for Transcendence in Science Fiction Film and Television: Dr. Reece is a natural conversationalist, and Creatures of the Night weaves an engagingly dark portrait of the collective unconscious, full of interesting observations, references and factoids... --Fortean Times: 'Dr Reece pursues his subject with admirable diligence and enthusiasm and should you wish to go in search of ghosts, vampires, werewolves and demons, I have come round to trusting Reece would be a good guide.' --Tim Heald, The Tablet : About the Author: Gregory L. Reece is an independent Alabama-based writer and scholar with special interests in new religious movements and cult beliefs. His previous books include Elvis Religion: The Cult of the King (2006), UFO Religion: Inside Flying Saucer Cults and Cultures (2007) and Weird Science and Bizarre Beliefs (2008), all published by I.B.Tauris. Size: 13.8 x 1.7 x 21.6 cm. 256 pages. Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: Under 500 grams. Category: Literature & Literary; ISBN: 1848853858. ISBN/EAN: 9781848853850. . 9781848853850, I.B.Tauris, 2012, UK: HarperCollins Distribution Services, 1973. Paperback. Very Good. 7 x 4.2 x 0.6 inches. Book Description By the same author as "South Trap", "A Cleft of Stars", and "Hold Down a Shadow", this story revolves around an expedition to an African island to look for diamonds. Only one man stands in their way, and he is determined to sabotage the scheme and destroy anyone who trespasses on the island. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title. Editorial Reviews Review This adventure carries the reader on a rising tide of suspense as a seabed diamond-mining operation runs up against malevolent natural forces bordering on the super-natural and encounters a mysterious "collector of deserts" - Shelborne - whose mystical communication with nature and obvious mental energy seems buried on Mercury Island, a guano-covered hell-hole. John Tregard, the young narrator, stumbles but never falls in his determination to solve the enigma of the island; its strange occupant and odd pheno-mena - the "Glory Hole" and its secret, the death-dealing rattles ironically named "The Bells of St. Mary's" and the furtive smell of diamonds. Mr. Jenkins combines an imaginative flair for story-telling with scientific sense. And if the impact of the ending seeps away a bit with overly contrived coincidence, it is good Hollywood. (Kirkus Reviews) About the Author Geoffrey Jenkins was born in 1920 in Port Elizabeth, South Africa and educated in the old Transvaal, where he wrote his first book-a legal history-at the age of seventeen. After leaving school he worked as a sub-editor in Zimbabwe, later becoming a newspaperman in both Britain and South Africa. He combined a most successful career in journalism with a life-long interest in the sea, and his knowledge of ships and sailing has provided the background to many of his novels. His first novel, A Twist of Sand, was published in 1959 and immediately became a bestseller; it was later filmed. Eight more most successful novels followed having sold over five million copies in twenty-three different languages. --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition., HarperCollins Distribution Services, 1973

Riverside, New Jersey, U.S.A.: Simon & Schuster, 1990. Hard Cover. Very Good/Good. Riverside, New Jersey, U.S.A.: Simon & Schuster, 1990. Very Good/Good. Riverside, New Jersey, U.S.A.: Simon & Schuster, 1990. Very Good/Good. Bright Star by Harold Coyle, "the Tom Clancy of ground warfare;' * is a timely and brilliantly written novel of action that sweeps the reader into the heat of battle, as U.S. and Soviet troops are drawn, despite glasnost, into a rapidly escalating North African war between Egypt and Libya. Harold Coyle exploded onto the national best- seller lists with his first novel, Team Yankee. His second best-seller, Sword Point, was praised by Stephen Coonts as "a first-class military thriller," and hailed by Tom Clancy as "fast-paced, complex, and brutally direct ... like war itself." With Bright Star, Coyle proves again that he is the master of hard-edged military fiction, whose grasp of the modern battlefield is rivaled only by his ability to create full-blooded characters and a fast-paced narrative. Bright Star is his most compelling, vivid, and exciting novel to date. In the not-too-distant future, an assassination attempt against both the U.S. and Egyptian presidents by Libyan terrorists sparks a retaliatory raid by Egyptian forces across that coun­try's border into Libya. As the conflict intensifies, U.S. and Soviet troops are drawn inexorably into a battle that nobody could describe better, more excit­ingly, or in more fascinating (and knowledgeable) detail than Harold Coyle-for nobody understands better the confusion, the fear, the terrible logic of war, or writes better about men and women, from generals to foot soldiers, undergoing the terror, the glory, and the pain of the experience. Coyle's cast of characters is broad, fascinating, and utterly believable. Among the people whose lives we follow (and who are forever changed by the brutal realities of war) are: • Scott Dixon, a disillusioned lieutenant colonel and Medal of Honor winner, assigned to peacetime maneuvers in Egypt, and suddenly confronted with all-out war at just the moment when he is reconsider­ing his career as a soldier. .. • Fay Dixon, an army wife grown tired of the uncertainty, sacrifice, and fear, trapped by her own frustration in a domestic struggle with her husband, Scott, that the war brings to an unexpected and dev­astating climax ... • Naboatov, Soviet major, war-weary veteran of too many battles, watching what should be only a regrettable (and minor) incident between two client states escalate into a world-threatening military con­frontation ... • Ian Fields, strong-willed and beautiful TV cor­respondent, torn between her iron commitment to her job and the love she is beginning to feel for her best friend's husband ... • Ahmed Hafez, lieutenant colonel, Egyptian Army, whose devotion to duty as a soldier comes into agonizing conflict with his fundamental religious beliefs ... With devastating swiftness, soldiers and civilians alike are hurled into the storm of war as tanks clash in bloody combat in the desert, and the world waits in fear for the outcome. About the author Harold ("Harry") Coyle is a graduate of the Virginia Military Institute, '74, and has more than fifteen years of active duty with the U. S. Army.
