Exclusive: Excerpt from Neil Gaiman's 'Trigger Warning' is here to warn you, literally. His new short story collection is titled Trigger Warning: Short Fictions and Disturbances (William Morrow). The phrase is commonly used online to warn people about content that "could upset them and trigger flashbacks or anxiety or terror," as Gaiman describes in the introduction. The collection features some of Gaiman's previously published work, along with a new American Gods story, Black Dog. USA TODAY has an exclusive excerpt from the introduction, along with the reveal of the book cover. "Little Triggers" by Neil Gaiman An exclusive excerpt from the introduction to his new short fiction collection, Trigger Warning There are things that upset us. And what we learn about ourselves in those moments, where the trigger has been squeezed, is this: the past is not dead. What do we need to be warned about? I was fascinated when I learned that trigger warnings had crossed the divide from the Internet to the world of things you could touch.

La nature est un champ de bataille - Razmig KEUCHEYAN Face à la catastrophe écologique annoncée, les bonnes âmes appellent l’humanité à « dépasser ses divisions » pour s’unir dans un « pacte écologique ». Cet essai s’attaque à cette idée reçue. Il n’y aura pas de consensus environnemental. Loin d’effacer les antagonismes existants, la crise écologique se greffe au contraire à eux pour les porter à incandescence. Razmig Keucheyan est docteur en sociologie et maître de conférences à l'université de Paris-IV-Sorbonne. Sécheresses, ouragans, inondations : aux quatre coins du monde, les catastrophes climatiques charrient leur lot de drames humains et d’images spectaculaires. Arguably the single most important mistake the revolutionary movements of the 60s and 70s made was to overlook the resilience of capitalism. Pour Razmig Keucheyan, c'est le développement du capitalisme qui a provoqué la crise écologique. 01/04/2014 - L'Ecologiste Le titre sonne comme une charge et c'en est une. 01/05/2014 - Olivier Nouaillas - La Vie 01/10/2014 - Silence

Seven Tips from Edgar Allan Poe on How to Write Vivid Stories and Poems There may be no more a macabrely misogynistic sentence in English literature than Edgar Allan Poe’s contention that “the death… of a beautiful woman” is “unquestionably the most poetical topic in the world.” (His perhaps ironic observation prompted Sylvia Plath to write, over a hundred years later, “The woman is perfected / Her dead / Body wears the smile of accomplishment.”) The sentence comes from Poe’s 1846 essay “The Philosophy of Composition,” and if this work were only known for its literary fetishization of what Elisabeth Bronfen calls “an aesthetically pleasing corpse”—marking deep anxieties about both “female sexuality and decay”—then it would indeed still be of interest to feminists and academics, though not perhaps to the average reader. But Poe has much more to say that does not involve a romance with dead women. To illustrate what he means, Poe walks us through an analysis of his own work, “The Raven.” Know the ending in advance, before you begin writing. Related Contents:

Comptes rendus Franck POUPEAU, Les mésaventures de la critique, Raison d’Agir, 2011, 165 p. L’ouvrage est mince, mais non l’ambition de l’auteur : rien moins que refonder la critique sociale pour « refonder la gauche » en France dans une perspective anticapitaliste. Le point de départ en forme de constat, sinon de postulat, que F. Poupeau entreprend d’étayer en prenant pour cible dans les chapitres suivants différents types d’errements idéologiques qu’il impute à la « gauche radicale », est que « si elle échoue dans ses tentatives de rupture avec le capitalisme, ce n’est peut-être pas seulement à cause des différents adversaires politiques qui, de la gauche sociale-libérale à la droite sécuritaire, se succèdent au pouvoir, c’est sans doute aussi qu’elle a du mal à prendre la mesure des modes de domination qui permettent un tel gouvernement des hommes et des choses ». Dans sa critique des insuffisances de l’altermondialisme, F. C’est pourquoi F. Certes, F. Louis MOREAU DE BELLAING

What makes a great leader? A recommended reading (and watching) list “People don’t buy what you do, they buy why you do it.” This is the mantra of leadership expert Simon Sinek in one of the most popular TED Talks of all time (Watch: Simon Sinek: How great leaders inspire action). In his talk from TEDxPugetSound, Sinek looks at Apple, Martin Luther King Jr. and the Wright brothers — and examines why they were so successful at getting people to follow them. 1. “This is essential reading for anyone interested in the topic of purpose. 2. “So many leadership books are either theoretical (written by people who study it but don’t do it) or by people who look back and try to explain how they did it. 3. “I’m a fan of books that challenge our assumptions, and Diamond offers us a new and remarkably simple way of looking at our world. 4. 1421: The Year China Discovered America Gavin Menzies William Morrow Paperbacks, 2008 “This is another book that trains us to keep an open mind. 5. “Leaders needn’t be the loudest. 6. 7.
