This book, adapted from the distinguished Hale Lectures presents material from a woman's wrestling with death, showing how inextricably mixed are matters theological and psychological. At a point when her life was blossoming in every way, Nancy was struck down by a terminal brain tumour which soon robbed her of her speech. She used paintings, many of which are here reproduced, to wrestle with this blow and to communicate what she was slowly discerning in the face of death, something from the 'other side'. The author addresses a variety of related issues, including the place of language in analysis and the role of the feminine mode of being, especially in transference and counter-transference.

It is a time of magic and monsters, a time when only a few scattered points of light glow with stubborn determination amid a rising tide of shadows. It is a time when only the bravest heroes dare tread the wild of the unknown… About a century ago, the collapse of Nerath, the last empire of the world, ushered in a dark age that continues to this day, the peace and prosperity of the past seemingly lost forever. However, even those fabled days weren’t without a few blemishes. One of these was Emperor Magroth the First, a tyrant and a conqueror; cruel, ambitious, filled with delusions of grandeur and dreams of destiny, and more than a bit insane. During Magroth’s reign, rumors of necromancy and demon worship were rampant, but the truth was far worse. Thanks to deals he made, pacts he agreed to, and rituals he performed, death was not the end Emperor Magroth. Instead, a piece of him was drawn into the Shadowfell where he became the ruler of a domain of dead. From this vantage, the old king prepared for his return—and the new empire he would forge from the ruins of old. Now Magroth has made a new deal with Orcus, the Demon Prince of Undeath, that frees him from his eternal prison for a year and a day. In that time, Magroth must re-establish his ancient kingdom while also accomplishing a series of terrible tasks for Orcus. To this end, Magroth’s plans intersect with two other threats that are rising in the world. Where these threats meet, the world shudders. And it falls to our heroes to keep the fragile lights of civilization burning for another day

In The Fallen Elves, book three of The Second Neoluzian War epic fantasy series, the wicked Orc dictator Arkan Spiritstrike, his wizards and military generals are on the verge of laying waste to the elven cities of Balenwood and Oakmantle after destroying the human settlements in the northern lands. This is a time of desperation for the good races because Darius has been lost to lower Neoluzia due to the Gathering of Replenishment spell cast upon him by members of the secretive wizard guild, the Veiled Institution. David Parr, a human from Earth summoned by Darius that reluctantly remains in Neoluzia to assist the Salon of Enlightenment against their Orc enemies, must find the great necromancer Termaplix if the land is to be saved. Finding Termaplix may be impossible however, for the hero from the War of Cleansing has been hidden in a secret place due to unknown circumstances one thousand years ago--a tomb long since forgotten to the current generations in the land. Perilously stifled in their shift away from the old magic and the forced elimination of history, those that Parr seeks to help against the enemy from the north must first learn to embrace the gift of magic again, an art banished in antiquity by the deception of peace and the deep wounds of the surviving populations in the first war.

In Parr Taken, the first book of The Second Neoluzian War epic fantasy series, one thousand years have passed since the end of Neoluzias most destructive war, the War of Cleansing. The War of Cleansing was so destructive that the good races of the land ordered the confiscation of all magical items and their components so that such a war could never be repeated. These instruments of war were buried in tombs, vaults and hidden throughout Neoluzia, forgotten by the races over the centuries. Restrictions on magic followed, ensuring the knowledge of the old magic was reduced. In time, the races lived together peacefully, their new history one of cooperation and mutual understanding. However, the drums of war are once again beating in Neoluzia, for the good races are unaware that their Orc neighbors to the north have been busy preparing, gathering and marching. Darius, a wizard that fought in the War of Cleansing and the most powerful spell caster to ever walk the land of Neoluzia, senses the danger. Darius helped cast down Antiluminous in the first war, defeating the Orcs, but that was one thousand years ago. Now old and deteriorating, Darius must demand the aid of a human from Earth, a stranger with no understanding of Neoluzia and its history.
