This Young Monster is a hallucinatory celebration of artists who raise hell, transform their bodies, anger their elders and show their audience dark, disturbing things. What does it mean to be a freak? Why might we be wise to think of the present as a time of monstrosity? And how does the concept of the monster irradiate our thinking about queerness, disability, children and adolescents? From Twin Peaks to Leigh Bowery, Harmony Korine to Alice in Wonderland, This Young Monster gets high on a whole range of riotous art as its voice and form shape-shift, all in the name of dealing with the strange wonders of what Nabokov once called 'monsterhood'. Ready or not, here they come...

Welcome to the Second Evolution. Richard Sessions, M.D. has taken the wonder of Genetic Engineering to its ultimate limit.Due to his brilliance, no longer must a fetus pass through a womans Pelvic Brim, which has limited the size of the Human Brain for 25 million years. He has also made obsolete the contributions of a potential Father. The Fathers genetic contribution has now been replaced with Syntail, a mass-produced synthetic sperm. Through this knowledge, the two genetic offspring of the Second Evolution, Glass and Echo, have arrived. These twin offspring of this fateful combination alone possess the Third Cerebral Hemisphere, which they use to supply Dr. Sessions with new and terrible miracles. But the Doctor receives a deadly omen one night; he receives the Death List, the list that the Grim Reaper uses to kill all the people who are slated to die each day. Dr. Sessions sees his own name on this portentous list and formulates a plan to stop the Grim Reaper from executing his obligations and thereby attempts to lengthen his stay on this lonely planet. A supernatural battle begins with the Grim Reapers attempt to reconstruct the Life Thread; the slender filament that the Grim Reapers massive Scythe severs to terminate his victims. Alexandra Morrow, a lawyer whose name is just before Dr. Sessions on the Death List, is caught in between these two combatants in a surreal plan of Deception, Terror, and Murder. Who will win&?

Welcome to the Essential Novelists book series, were we present to you the best works of remarkable authors. For this book, the literary critic August Nemo has chosen the two most important and meaningful novels of Jane Barker which are The Amours of Bosvil and Galesia, and Exilius. Jane Barker, who wrote during the late seventeenth and early eighteenth century, shows remarkable daring and originality both as a poet and as a writer of prose fiction. Critical attention to her as a proto-feminist has recently been joined by attention to the political (Catholic and Jacobite) slant of her writings. From her debut as a coterie writer circulating her poems among a group of admiring male friends, Jane Barker became a denizen of the literary marketplace and a voice both for the silent elements in women's experience and for the silenced Catholic and Jacobite elements in national life. Novels selected for this book: - The Amours of Bosvil and Galesia - ExiliusThis is one of many books in the series Essential Novelists.

London pathologist Bates, a consultant to the Royal Free Hospital, explores the written and artistic records of human monstrous births published in Europe between 1500 and 1700, not as a narrative survey, but in order to present several arguments concerning the description of such births during the period. Integrating historical and medical approaches, he argues that early modern accounts of monstrous births were usually representations of individual cases rather than generalized or allegorical monsters, and that the descriptive accuracy and credibility of their accounts were among the writers' chief concerns.
