However arresting, outlandish, or hilarious, the poems in Horoscopes for the Dead are typically prompted by the familiar things of the world: dogs, stars, food, love, and marriage as well as life's local triumphs and disappointments, joys and shames. Collins's gift is to unlock the mysterious in the ordinary, and he is always careful to take his reader with him. Indeed, no other living poet has done more to reengage and revitalize poetry's readership, or so deservedly earned its trust. Few poets have his ability to mix bold, unadorned statements with lyric invention and imaginative richness. And here in these new poems, Collins's inimitable tone - wry, smart, funny, and wise - takes on a darker shade, as the poems declare a deep awareness of transience and mortality. The result is the revelation of a world more precious, more fragile, richer in colour and form than ever. Praise for Billy Collins ‘A writer . . . fully aware of his work’s power to delight’ New York Times ‘A poet of plentitude, irony, and Augustan grace’ New Yorker

The author is convinced that the early Byzantine Church deliberately cut out sections from an historic text to conceal the truth about the crucifixion of a man they were promoting as their Messiah. She solves the mystery by reconstructing the deleted sections. King pieces together what happened in Jerusalem during the trial and attempted crucifixion of the real Messiah and shows that the key passages that were tampered with are actually the missing link that connects the Dead Sea Scrolls to the New Testament Gospels. Using those passags and the history of the period, she identifies the figures mentioned in the Dead Sea Scrolls.

Horoscopes of Europe is Marc Penfield's third book on countries of the world arranged by continent. This encyclopedic book is the definitive work on the 51 nations that make up the world's smallest continent, from its largest (Russia) to four diminuitive nations inside Italy, three of them shown here for the first time (Montenegro, Seborga and Sov. Military Order of Malta). This extremely valuable reference work is one that no astrologer interested in mundane, or political, astrology can afford to be without. A century ago, Europe had only 26 countries, most of them monarchies, only half of which remain today. Over the following eight decades, nine more nations were born and with the break-up of the Soviet Union, Czechoslovakia and Yugoslavia, 15 more countries emerged onto the world scene. Many countries have two horoscopes-one for its original monarchy, the other for its transition to democracy. France and Germany have many charts from their emergence in the Middle Ages down through a millennia to become the powerhouses of Europe. Charts for the Roman Republic and Empire are also shown. The Eurasian countries of the Caucasus have also been included as they straddle Europe and Asia as do the countries of Russia and Turkey. Charts for more than 135 European cities have also been included, calculated for when they were granted their charters. Appendix A has horoscopes for every member of the European Union, while Appendix B has the author's rectified birth times for most cities shown in this book. This appendix also has the author's speculative birth dates for the cities of London and Paris. Marc Penfield is a double Scorpio with Gemini rising. Known as an historian and researcher and a lover of history and geography, his many years as a travel agent enabled him to journey to many of the places he writes about. Marc Penfield is the author of Bon Voyage (on relocation techniques), Solar Returns in Your Face, Stars over England (with brief bios on its monarchs), Horoscopes of the USA and Canada (now in its 2nd printing), and Horoscopes of Asia, Australia and the Pacific.

This handbook helps the living assist the dying at the time of death. It teaches that the living must, first and foremost, understand the process that the soul goes through before they can help the spirit in its transition. Dion Fortune's Book of the Dead is a clear, concise, illuminating guide that explains the stages in the natural process of dying that each and every soul passes through from this world to the next. Fortune shows how traditional customs connected with the passing of a soul have their roots in psychic fact. For example, we place candles and fresh flowers in the death chamber as soon as the soul has departed because they provide sufficient etheric emanations to meet the needs of the "etheric double," assisting in the soul's disentanglement from the physical. Without the flowers and candles, the etheric body will draw its vitality from any available source, including grievers. Loved ones in particular are susceptible to depletion and can be drained dry in their ignorance. The living, Fortune writes, have two tasks to perform: "We must see to it that dust returns as swiftly and harmoniously as possible, giving rise to none of the happenings which may be termed the pathologies of death," and "we ought to follow up the departing soul with the right kind of telepathic communication until it is safely established on the Other Side."
