The sci-fi novel "Son of Sedonia" took me 6 years and the best of my ability to complete. What success I've had, I owe to the Reddit and Imgur communities. Here is the eBook, and some of my concept art, for free. Thank you all! : scifi
Ernest Hemingway once said “All American literature comes from one book by Mark Twain called Huckleberry Finn. There was nothing before. There has been nothing as good since.” While many have challenged Ernest’s view, there’s no denying that over a career spanning more than three decades, Papa became a master of his craft. In his lifetime, he published seven novels, six short story collections, and two non-fiction works. His last major work of fiction, The Old Man and the Sea won him the 1953 Pulitzer Prize for Fiction and was cited by the Nobel Committee as contributing to the awarding of him the Nobel Prize in Literature a year later.

Plot As their relationship deepens, Hazel begins to feel herself pulling away from Augustus. Augustus had saved his wish from "The Genies" (a fictionalized version of the Make a Wish Foundation), and wants to use it to fly himself and Hazel to Amsterdam, Netherlands to meet Peter van Houten, the reclusive alcoholic author of An Imperial Affliction. While she is overjoyed by the proposal, Hazel decides that she does not want to pursue a relationship with Augustus, so that she can minimize the pain her eventual death will cause him, as Augustus lost his former girlfriend, Caroline Mathers, to cancer. Hazel realizes that she sees herself as a grenade, and her tearful admission of this scares her parents, although they do their best to comfort her. After waking up in agony due to pain in her head, Hazel is admitted to the hospital with serious pneumonia. The Fault in Our Stars

Fashionable Nonsense Fashionable Nonsense: Postmodern Intellectuals' Abuse of Science (French: Impostures Intellectuelles), published in the UK as Intellectual Impostures, is a book by Alan Sokal and Jean Bricmont. Sokal is best known for the Sokal Affair, in which he submitted a deliberately absurd article to Social Text, a critical theory journal, and was able to get it published. The book was published in French in 1997, and in English in 1998; the English editions were revised for greater relevance to debates in the English-speaking world. As part of the so-called science wars, the book criticizes postmodernism in academia for what it claims are misuses of scientific and mathematical concepts in postmodern writing.

Alan Kirby (writer) Alan Kirby is the author of The Death of Postmodernism and Beyond and of Digimodernism: How New Technologies Dismantle the Postmodern and Reconfigure Our Culture, a book-length study of the same subject. Along with Nicolas Bourriaud, Gilles Lipovetsky, Raoul Eshelman, Timotheus Vermeulen and Robin van den Akker he is an analyst of culture in the aftermath of postmodernism. Kirby believes that postmodernism began to retreat in the late 1990s, and has been superseded as a cultural dominant by what he calls "digimodernism" ("pseudomodernism" in the original article). Kirby also published "Time for a New 'Ism'?"

By: Haris Ioannides - Armida Publications Going through this impressive list by onlineschools.org, I have to admit that the books mentioned definitely deserve being there. Kazantzakis is perhaps one of the most recognized Greek author and needs no introductions. I’d just like to add “Askitiki”, another of his books you should read which, personally, I find to be a masterpiece. Eugenides, an American of Greek Irish heritage, wrote a book you will never forget.
Background Greene initially formulated some of the ideas in The 48 Laws of Power while working as a writer in Hollywood and observing that today's power elite shared similar traits with powerful figures throughout history. In 1995, Greene worked as a writer at Fabrica, an art and media school, and met a book packager named Joost Elffers. Greene pitched a book about power to Elffers and six months later, Elffers requested that Greene write a treatment. Although Greene was unhappy in his current job, he was comfortable and saw the time needed to write a proper book proposal as too risky. However, at the time Greene was rereading his favorite biography about Julius Caesar and took inspiration from Caesar's decision to cross the Rubicon River and fight Pompey, thus inciting the Great Roman Civil War. Greene would follow Caesar's example and write the treatment, which later became The 48 Laws of Power. He would note this as the turning point of his life.
