It’s been 10 years since the world officially ended. In the last city on Earth, Jon Salt is addicted to Sadness, a drug that invokes its name, and obsessed with his lover, Michelle; both of which threaten to drive him insane. Strange creatures and new technologies appeared in the last days of humanity and the widespread adoption of teleportation technology sundered the fabric of time and space, leaving a smattering of looping ghosts. It is a sad, monotone world, but the remaining populace is happy, thanks to the anti-depressants in the water supply.The last government on Earth has taken a special interest in a gift that Jon possesses: the ability to make his thoughts real. Jon must rely on that gift and the help of a few unlikely friends to stay one step ahead of those who desperately want to use him for something far more sinister than even he could dream...

Author Henry Kong's More Self than Self: At Autism's Edge will take you on a captivating exploration of the autistic mind as Dr. Kong shares the latest discoveries in genetics and neuroscience. As a child, Kong was an awkward Asian American bookworm with oversized glasses and an overbearing father. Made to feel like an outsider, Kong was bullied by his classmates and endured degrading nicknames. Kong's stories tell of his childhood gift for memorization and the challenge that it creates later in life, and of his struggle to grasp and apply concepts to real-life situations. Through it all, Kong manages to finish medical school, educate himself about Asperger syndrome, write books, and open a private practice. In a conversational style, Dr Kong intersperses anecdotes with passages that cover both basic science and also delve into the cutting-edge research that has helped solve some of the mysteries behind autism. Not only will More Self than Self provide a comprehensive look into the differences between the autistic and neurotypical brain; it will also inspire anyone who has ever felt isolated and unaccepted to believe that they too can make their dreams come true.

Most people would agree that compulsive lying is a "sickness." In his provocative Lying, Paul Griffiths suggests that consistent truth telling might evoke a similar response. After all, isn't unremitting honesty often associated with stupidity, insanity, and fanatical sainthood? Drawing from Augustine's writings, and contrasting them with the work of other Christian and non-Christian thinkers, Griffiths deals with the two great questions concerning lying: What is it to lie? When, if ever, should or may a lie be told? Examining Augustine's answers to these questions, Griffiths grapples with the difficulty of those answers while rendering them more accessible. With rhetorical savvy Augustine himself would applaud, Griffiths aims to "seduce" rather than argue his readers into agreement with Augustine. Augustine's historically significant, characteristically Christian, and undeniably radical thoughts on lying ignite Griffiths's searching discussion of this challenging and crucial topic. Marvelously erudite and energetic, Lying will draw Augustine enthusiasts, students of ethics, and anyone who is committed to living a more honest life.

Multiculturalism in the South is more than black and white, as this collection of essays shows. Cultural Diversity in the U.S. South examines the often overlooked histories of various immigrants who settled in the South, their relations with one another, and their enormous impact on the region. From Native Americans to Latinos, from Indochinese to Jews, this volume follows minority immigration from its early history into the current era of globalization of the South. Cultural Diversity in the U.S. South provides the most in-depth analysis yet written about the political, social, and economic conditions of the many different ethnic groups and offers fresh explanations to the questions concerning why some have become powerful voices in southern society more quickly than others.
