VOCÊ ESTÁ PREPARADO PARA A LIÇÃO DO DOUTOR? 1911. Porto Alegre. Dirigíveis gigantescos dominam o céu. Abaixo, o vapor cinzento dos bondes, das fábricas e dos estaleiros ao redor soma-se à fumaça dos charutos, dos cachimbos e das cigarrilhas. Vozes robóticas, barulho de hélices e maquinários misturam-se ao alarido do povo. De um Zepelin, desembarca Isaías Caminha, um jornalista carioca enviado à cidade para escrever uma matéria sobre o assassino em série Antoine Louison, que há poucos dias assombrava o local com um verdadeiro show de horrores: a exposição dos órgãos de suas vítimas. A aventura começa depois que o Dr. Louison, finalmente capturado e preso no hospício, desaparece misteriosamente de sua cela de segurança máxima sem deixar vestígios. Nesta busca pelo paradeiro do assassino, Isaías e um grupo de investigadores ainda vão topar com conhecidos do Dr. Louison, pertencentes a uma sociedade secreta de intelectuais, chamada Parthenon Místico, que estão dispostos a tudo para defendê-lo e desmascarar os criminosos. Esses amigos de Louison são alguns aclamados personagens da literatura brasileira, em brilhante reinvenção: Rita Baiana e Pombinha, de Aluísio Azevedo, Simão Bacamarte, de Machado de Assis, Solfieri, de Álvares de Azevedo, entre outros. Sobre o autor: Enéias Tavares tem 32 anos e mora em Santa Maria, no Rio Grande do Sul. É doutor em Letras e especialista nos Livros iluminados de William Blake. Pesquisador, tradutor e escritor, leciona literatura clássica na Universidade Federal de Santa Maria. De ficção, publicou As idades do homem na Coletânea 40, da editora Libretos. Escreve à noite e à luz de castiçais. Indicado para fãs de mistério e da temática Steampunk – que narra histórias ambientadas no passado, mesclando-as com elementos tecnológicos e modernos que não deveriam existir naquele período histórico, como nos clássicos de Julio Verne.

Morgan has managed again to produce a strong set of characters that make us cheer for them on every page.…Recommended for the permanent library of all readers that love a well-written fantasy.” --Books and Movie Reviews, Roberto Mattos (regarding Rise of the Dragons) KNIGHT, HEIR, PRINCE is book #3 in Morgan Rice’s bestselling epic fantasy series OF CROWNS AND GLORY, which begins with SLAVE, WARRIOR, QUEEN (Book #1). 17 year old Ceres, a beautiful, poor girl from the Empire city of Delos, finds herself alone at sea, drifting towards the mythic Isle Beyond the Mist—and towards the mother she never met. She is ready to complete her training, to finally understand her power, and to become the warrior she was meant to be. But will her mother be there to greet her? Will she teach her all she needs to know? And will she reveal all of the secret of Ceres’ identity? In Delos, Thanos, thinking Ceres is dead, finds himself wedded to Stephania, and immersed deeper in a court he cannot escape from and in a family he hates. He also finds himself in the midst of the erupting Revolution, which culminates in a daring attack on the Stade. As the one person who can stop—or aid—it, he will have to choose whether to put his own life at risk. With the kingdom collapsing, foes moving in on all sides, and assassination attempts abounding at court, Thanos cannot know who to trust. He is stuck in a game of pawns and kings, of traitors and queens, and it may be Ceres, after all, who is destined to change it all. Yet after a series of tragic misunderstandings, the romance that seemed fated may just slip away from both of their fingertips. KNIGHT, HEIR, PRINCE tells an epic tale of tragic love, vengeance, betrayal, ambition, and destiny. Filled with unforgettable characters and heart-pounding action, it transports us into a world we will never forget, and makes us fall in love with fantasy all over again. “An action packed fantasy sure to please fans of Morgan Rice’s previous novels, along with fans of works such as The Inheritance Cycle by Christopher Paolini….

The year is 1992, and no one on the rock music scene is hotter than Kiro Manning, the lead singer of Slacker Demon. With a multi-platinum record, total ownership of the Billboard charts, sold-out concerts, and sinful amounts of money, Kiro can have anything—and anyone—he wants. So when a dark-haired, conservative beauty rebuffs him at a concert after-party, his first thought is, “Who the hell does she think she is?” His second thought: “How do I make her mine?” Kiro has always loved a good challenge, but not every girl wants to get involved with a rock god. Especially this girl. He let her go that night, but he never forgot her. And when they met again, he vowed not to give up again so easily. As the world worshipped Kiro, he came to worship the girl, who became everything he never knew he needed. The only girl he would ever love. His Emily. From #1 New York Times bestselling author Abbi Glines comes a heart-wrenching e-novella in the Rosemary Beach series about the star-crossed romance between Kiro and Emily, first introduced in Take a Chance.

"Science fiction, because of its links to science and technology, is the consummate literary vehicle for examining the perception and cultural impact of the modernization process in Brazil. Because of the centrality of the role played by the military dictatorship (1964-85) in imposing industrialization and economic development policies on Brazil, this book examines the genre in the periods before, during, and after the dictatorship, encompassing the years 1960-2000. The analysis shows that a reading of Brazilian science fiction based on its use of paradigms of Anglo-American science fiction and myths of Brazilian nationhood provides a unique look into Brazil's modern metamorphosis as it finds itself on the periphery of the globalized world." "The three periods studied here correspond roughly to the 1960s, the '70s, and he '80s to the present. The earliest group of authors produces mostly antitechnological, apolitical science fiction, as a way of affirming myths of Brazilian identity. Here, the deconstruction of myths of the feminine and of racial democracy provides the basis for the analysis of Brazil's notion of national identity. In the seventies, a second group of authors uses science fiction to protest the military regime, creating dystopian worlds in which the myths of Brazilian culture serve as touchstones to criticize various ills associated with urbanization, industrialization, and repression. In the analysis of these texts, the insights of ecofeminism are employed to demystify the conflation of the land with women found in the nostalgic construction of Brazilian identity characteristic of this period. The third group, emerging in the mideighties after the dictatorship, offers a more complex, postmodern view of Brazilian society, its continuing social problems, and the phenomenon of globalization. Reading these texts as allegories of modernization enriches the understanding of both the genre of science fiction and the experience of modernity itself."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.

Essa máxima simples, mas definitiva, norteia a análise de três renomados pensadores atuais da mídia moderna - entre eles Henry Jenkins - sobre o futuro da circulação de conteúdo nos meios de comunicação social e digital. Vivemos uma mudança de paradigma na mídia - a passagem de uma mentalidade regulada pela lógica da radiodifusão, que dominou todo o século 20, para outra em que o controle sobre a produção e a distribuição cultural já não é tão rígido; uma nova proposição que permite e valoriza o engajamento das audiências. Hoje, as pessoas não se limitam ao simples papel de consumidor. Discutem, reagem, espalham seus interesses e críticas pelas diferentes modalidades de mídia. Querem ser ouvidas, atendidas, recompensadas. Entre as muitas possibilidades dessa cultura cada vez mais ligada em rede, há pelo menos uma grande certeza - será mais bem-sucedido quem souber lidar melhor com as aspirações e desejos de um público ávido por participar e opinar.

Lord of the Flies meets War of the Worlds in J. Barton Mitchell's alien-invaded post-apocalyptic world where two teens and a young girl with amazing powers must stop the aliens' mysterious plan Earth has been conquered by an alien race known as the Assembly. The human adult population is gone, having succumbed to the Tone---a powerful, telepathic super-signal broadcast across the planet that reduces them to a state of complete subservience. But the Tone has one critical flaw. It only affects the population once they reach their early twenties, which means that there is one group left to resist: Children. Holt Hawkins is a bounty hunter, and his current target is Mira Toombs, an infamous treasure seeker with a price on her head. It's not long before Holt bags his prey, but their instant connection isn't something he bargained for. Neither is the Assembly ship that crash-lands near them shortly after. Venturing inside, Holt finds a young girl who remembers nothing except her name: Zoey. As the three make their way to the cavernous metropolis of Midnight City, they encounter young freedom fighters, mutants, otherworldly artifacts, pirates, feuding alien armies, and the amazing powers that Zoey is beginning to exhibit. Powers that suggest she, as impossible as it seems, may just be the key to stopping the Assembly once and for all. Midnight City is the breathtaking first book of the Conquered Earth series.

"In the latest entry to this globetrotting series, a man goes for a tarot reading and winds up poisoned by the daughter he never knew he had. And that’s just one story in a collection that takes us down the mysterious alleys and mazy favelas of Rio, just in time for the Olympic Games." --O, the Oprah Magazine "The latest installment of Akashic's geographically wide-ranging mystery series lands in Rio de Janeiro, a city whose famous imagery--the massive statue of Christ the Redeemer, Sugarloaf mountain, the beautiful beaches--constitutes the public face of the city, but behind lurks a 'world of shadows, blood, intrigue, violence, hideouts, and mystery'...A good introduction to writers of the region and to the dark side of a very sunny place." --Booklist "As Rio de Janeiro prepares to host the 2016 summer Olympics amid fears of the Zika virus, this anthology of 14 dark and violent short stories set in the Brazilian city might give prospective visitors more reasons to be concerned...A solid addition to Akashic's acclaimed noir series." --Publishers Weekly "Bellotto has assembled here a winning cast of writers whose own procurers, colonels, cops, traffickers, socialites, slum-dwellers, embezzlers, tourists, detectives, journalists, politicians, assassins, outlaws, and coup-plotters jump off every page and into your bed. This anthology is delicious and deliciously discomforting." --Words Without Borders, Included in The Watchlist "These clever, well written stories are for anyone who wants to get a 'behind the scenes' look at Rio, where drugs, violence, sex and murder are major themes. All of these stories show Rio as a city that is teeming with life, even if some of it is dark and shadowy." --Susanne's Booklist Akashic Books continues its groundbreaking series of original noir anthologies, launched in 2004 with Brooklyn Noir. Each story is set in a distinct neighborhood or location within the city of the book. Brand-new stories by: Tony Bellotto, Luiz Alfredo Garcia-Roza, MV Bill, Luiz Eduardo Soares, Guilherme Fiuza, Arthur Dapieve, Victoria Saramago, Arnaldo Bloch, Adriana Lisboa, Alexandre Fraga dos Santos, Marcelo Ferroni, Flávio Carneiro, Raphael Montes, and Luis Fernando Verissimo. All stories translated from Portuguese by Clifford Landers (Coelho's The Alchemist, etc.). From the introduction by Tony Bellotto: "The images of Rio de Janeiro are well known: high rises aligned along white sandy beaches, a blue sea, freshwater lakes, and luxuriant forests that stretch through winding mountains of stone...the open arms of Christ the Redeemer blessing a happy, cordial, mixed-race people ever ready to dance a samba or offer a welcoming smile to the tourists who move about in the streets admiring beautiful women shimmying nude atop floats in Carnival parades...Opa! This is not a tourist guide. The city revealed in this book is a different Rio. Even though famous landscapes are present in the pages of Rio Noir, what is exposed here is a world of shadows, blood, intrigue, violence, hideouts, and mystery (and also of humor, of course, as is necessary with any undertaking involving Cariocas)...Whether we have succeeded in deciphering an enigma with the dramas of our procurers, card readers, colonels, cops, traffickers, socialites, slum dwellers, embezzlers, tourists, brokers, detectives, journalists, politicians, assassins, editors, outlaws, travelers, coup plotters, writers, lovers, and everyday citizens, I don't know. But we have surely added a large shadow to the sunny landscape of this wonderful city."

Marcelo Rubens Paiva's lively memoir Happy Old Year (Feliz Ano Velho) tells the story of a young man who suffered the dual tragedy of his father's 'disappearance' and apparent death at the hands of the Brazilian military, and his own permanent paralysis as the result of a subsequent diving accident. This inspiring, and sometimes humorous account, appeared in 1982 and was an immediate bestseller in Brazil. A prize-winning stage adaptation premiered in 1984 and ran for five years, touring internationally. Happy Old Year was filmed in 1988 and swept most of the awards at the annual Gramado Festival of Brazilian Cinema.
