Rescuing Titanic tells with exquisite illustrations and richly detailed text the story of the Carpathia and its heroic journey rescuing passengers from the Titanic.
This exquisitely illustrated story of quiet bravery tells in rich detail how the little ship Carpathia saved 705 passengers of the Titanic from the icy waters of the North Atlantic.
With the approaching 110-year anniversary of the ship’s sinking, Rescuing Titanic shares a unique connection with the story of the ship; having been written and illustrated by debut Northern Irish artist, Flora Delargy, whose grandfather and great grandfather both worked in the Belfast Shipyards where the Titanic was built.
Could the sudden death of Sir Charles Baskerville have been caused by the gigantic ghostly hound that is said to have haunted his family for generations? Arch-rationalist Sherlock Holmes characteristically dismisses the theory as nonsense. And immersed in another case, he sends Watson to Devon to protect the Baskerville heir and observe the suspects close at hand. With its atmospheric setting on the ancient, wild moorland and its savage apparition, The Hound of the Baskervilles is one of the greatest crime novels ever written. Rationalism is pitted against the supernatural, good against evil, as Sherlock Holmes seeks to defeat a foe almost his equal.
All Damali Richards ever wanted to do was create music and bring it to the people. Now she is a Spoken Word artist and the top act for Warriors of Light Records. But come nightfall, she hunts vampires and demons—predators that people tend to dismiss as myth or fantasy. But Damali and her Guardian team cannot afford such delusions, especially now, when a group of rogue vampires have been killing the artists of Warriors of Light and their rival, Blood Music. Strange attacks have also erupted within the club drug-trafficking network and drawn the attention of the police. These killings are a bit out of the ordinary, even for vampires. No neat puncture marks in the neck to show where the life’s blood has been sucked from the body. These bodies have been mutilated beyond recognition, indicating a blood lust and thirst for destruction that surpasses any Damali has encountered before. Damali soon discovers that behind these brutal murders is the most powerful vampire she has ever met, and this seductive beast is coming for her next. But his unholy intentions have also drawn the focus of other hellish dark forces. Soon Damali finds herself being pulled deeper into the vast and horrifying vampire world.
Imagine me, single, middle-aged and content, spending my days teaching English Literature at a university in Southern California. I had created a perfect life for myself, and had every reasonable expectation that it would go on forever. And then Violet showed up.
I’m Violet’s first love. She’s my last.
The stories in this volume are an explicit account of the sex adventures we have had during our first ten years together. They are stories about The Lifestyle, about sex clubs and swinging, about sensual excess and experimentation, about multi-partner and anonymous sexual encounters. More than anything, they are stories that expose my intoxicating and shameful need to see Violet’s beautiful young body handled, pleasured and penetrated by strangers. I have always been deeply aroused when somebody else gives Violet her orgasm – and when she gives theirs to them.
Because I’m an English teacher and a bodybuilder, these stories are peppered with reflections on the body, on fitness and conditioning, and on literature. I catch myself reporting on the politics of couple swaps on the dance floor, and brooding over Tolkien and Saint Augustine in the middle of three-way sex.
These stories also involve another kind of Sharing Violet. We have shared these sexual experiences with each other, and they have for the most part involved sharing her body with other lovers, men and women.
Now, we’re sharing them with you.
