From Impressionism to Anime Susan J. Napier 2007-12-15 What is it about anime that is so appealing to a transnational fan base? Is the American attraction to anime similar to the popularity of previous fads of Japanese culture, like the Japonisants of fin-de-siecle France enamored of Japanese art and architecture, or the American poets in the fifties and sixties who latched onto haiku? Or is this something new, a product of global culture in which ethnic identities carry less weight? This book explores these issues by taking a look at anime fans and the place they occupy, both in terms of subculture in Japan and America, and in relation to Western perceptions of Japan since the late 1800s.
Damaged Hope L K Hill 2017-09-26 "Kyra [is] smart, resourceful, and gritty. She's got steel in her spine. This is the woman I think we need to see more of in fiction."-Rebecca A., The Missing Lynx After surviving the horror of the Carmichael District, Kyra continues to look for her brother, but she can't seem to avoid crossing paths with the Mire's psychotic serial killer.

For Gabe, the mystery surrounding his brother's disappearance twenty-five years ago deepens as the suspect in custody is questioned, but speaks in riddles. If Gabe can decipher Hammond's strange clues, perhaps he can finally bring his brother's body home and obtain some closure. That is, if he can stay one step ahead of the murders in the Mire. Kyra and Gabe face new, darker challenges in their search for missing brothers. Every victory brings setbacks and complications. They have little to push them forward now except determination and hope. Even if it is a Damaged Hope. If you love you some crime, murder mystery and suspense with detectives and serial killers thrown in, don't miss the action-packed third installment of Street Games!

What's Wrong with Mormons? - a Good Tree Cannot Bring Forth Evil Fruit B. Jay Gladwell 2008-06-01 What do you know about Mormons? Where did you get your information? Is the information you have accurate? When a person claims Mormons aren't Christians, what he's really saying is Mormons don't believe in the traditional idea of the Trinity. "Their Jesus is different from our Jesus," is the usual response. For the Mormons who strive to live their lives in accordance to the Biblical teachings of Jesus Christ, they find the allegation that they aren't Christian as incomprehensible as it is hurtful. Ironically, members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints around the world are admired for their values. Yet their admirers are repulsed by Mormon doctrines at the same time. How is that possible? Where do the Mormon values come from? What is the source of their doctrines? This book attempts to set the record straight as it pertains to some basic Gospel doctrines as taught by The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and how they are scripturally founded in the Holy Bible. This book asks the simple question. What's wrong with Mormons?
