Description:
Chantilly, Virginia: The Teaching Company. 2009. DVD. Fine. Twelve 30-minute lectures on two As New DVDs in original case along with an As New paperback Course Guidebook (55 pages). Not from a library. Suitable for a gift.Recent years have seen the introduction of concepts from the new and exciting field of complexity science that have captivated the attention of economists, sociologists, engineers, businesspeople, and many others. These include tipping points, the sociological term used to describe moments when unique or rare phenomena become more commonplace; the wisdom of crowds, the argument that certain types of groups harness information and make decisions in more effective ways than individuals; six degrees of separation, the idea that it takes no more than six steps to find some form of connection between two random individuals; and emergence, the idea that new properties, processes, and structures can emerge unexpectedly from complex systems.

Overnight his simple life is shattered, and, gifted with only an ancient sword, a loyal dragon, and sage advice from an old storyteller, Eragon is soon swept into a dangerous tapestry of magic, glory, and power. Now his choices could save--or destroy--the Empire.

Description:
Richmond, Virginia: Valancourt Books, December 2015. Trade Paperback. Fine. Spine straight, tight and uncreased. Covers clean and bright with just the slightest hint of corner wear. x+226 pages. An exquisite blend of comedy, murder mystery, and surreal fantasy. Old Mrs. Ellison doesn't have much longer to live, and her scheming son Cedric is counting the days until he inherits her fortune. But his plans are upset by the arrival of his niece Varvara, a beautiful and wild young woman from a remote Chinese region known as the 'Sea of Glass', a strange land where wars are fought with crossbows and 'highly damaging curses' and where death may come at any moment in the form of a venomous barking spider. With the aid of a love-struck law student and a bibulous butler, Varvara aims to thwart the wiles of her evil uncle-but events take an unexpected and fatal turn in this unusual story, which is by turns hilarious and macabre. Authors: Dennis Parry; Simon Stern (intro)

London: Black Swan, 1994. Trade Paperback. Very Good. Interior pristine. Spine curved and creased. No tears. Not from a library. A nice reading copy. 348 pages. This overwhelmingly hot summer everything seems to be slowing down in the tiny Devon village where Alison lives, as if the sun is pouring hot glue over it. 'This idn't nothin',' says Alison's grandmother, recalling a drought when the earth swallowed lambs, and the summer after the war when people got electric shocks off each other. But Alison knows her grandmother's memory is lying: this is far worse. She feels that time has stopped just as she wants to enter the real world of adulthood. In fact, in the cruel heat of summer, time is creeping towards her, and closing in around the valley.

Spine straight and tight. Jacket clean and bright. No remainder mark. Not clipped. Suitable for gifting. 178 pages. 154 color photographs. 10.5 x 10.5 x 0.7 Inches. The dividing line between art and craft in Tamil Nadu is not easily discernible. With an uninterrupted classical heritage, its craft forms were transformed into works of art - the village terracottas became the great bronzes, the wood carvings became splendid monuments in stone. Unlike other parts of India, Tamilnadu's geographic location in the far south protected it from extraneous influences and made for a certain insularity of culture which strengthened the styles from within.
