Rufus, the white son of a plantation owner, is drowning, and Dana has been summoned to save him.

Octavia E. Butler’s bestselling literary science-fiction masterpiece, Kindred, now in graphic novel format. More than 35 years after its release, Kindred continues to draw in new readers with its deep exploration of the violence and loss of humanity caused by slavery in the United States, and its complex and lasting impact on the present day. Adapted by celebrated academics and comics artists Damian Duffy and John Jennings, this graphic novel powerfully renders Butler’s mysterious and moving story, which spans racial and gender divides in the antebellum South through the 20th century. Butler’s most celebrated, critically acclaimed work tells the story of Dana, a young black woman who is suddenly and inexplicably transported from her home in 1970s California to the pre–Civil War South. As she time-travels between worlds, one in which she is a free woman and one where she is part of her own complicated familial history on a southern plantation, she becomes frighteningly entangled in the lives of Rufus, a conflicted white slaveholder and one of Dana’s own ancestors, and the many people who are enslaved by him. Held up as an essential work in feminist, science-fiction, and fantasy genres, and a cornerstone of the Afrofuturism movement, there are over 500,000 copies of Kindred in print. The intersectionality of race, history, and the treatment of women addressed within the original work remain critical topics in contemporary dialogue, both in the classroom and in the public sphere. Frightening, compelling, and richly imagined, Kindred offers an unflinching look at our complicated social history, transformed by the graphic novel format into a visually stunning work for a new generation of readers.

“Kindred” is a story about young love, adoption, betrayal and the pursuit of life-long dreams and the embracing of destiny. Emi DeLandry and Phoenix Arington appear to be like any other teenagers in Southern California. They have loving and supportive families; a close group of friends and very comfortable lives with the world at their feet. Like any other person their age, Emi and Phoenix desire to find that “One” person who they know they are destined to be with. It is a search that both of them actively pursue, night after night, as they release their thoughts and emotions into the atmosphere. But these two teenagers are anything but “normal”. Out of the millions of people on Earth, they have been gifted with unique and powerful abilities; allowing them to do things that others only dream about. With these abilities comes a unique bond and a love that is deeper than what is read of in Shakespearean literature, and stronger than that of any television soap opera...it can only be described as “destiny”. Upon meeting, Emi, a telepath and Phoenix, an empath are almost instantly drawn into each other’s worlds. And although they can read the thoughts and emotions of those around them, they fail to know the deepest desires of one another. As time goes by they discover each other, as well as the remarkable abilities that they both possess. All seems good and well, as the two teens fall in love and begin a new, passionate and exciting chapter of their lives. But amongst all the excitement of adolescent love, their lives are about to take a very unexpected turn. Unbeknown to them, there is an enemy out there...an agency, which operates within the government and exists under a constant cloud of secrecy, ridding the world of anyone who possesses supernatural powers...and they have set their sights upon the young lovers. All Emi and Phoenix have are their instincts and abilities, as they are forced to leave their comfortable lives behind, in an attempt to stay alive and out of harm’s way. The only means of assistance is being provided from a distance by those closest to them. The two gifted teenagers are thrust into a world where deception and treachery has previously ruled everyday life, and where survival is crucial, no matter what the circumstances. Along the way they encounter Manny and Adelene, two people who also possess extraordinary abilities and share a common conviction, regarding the enemy. As Manny and Adelene have been in the game longer than their young counterparts, they know the ropes and are aware of the agency’s methods. They then take it upon themselves to mentor Phoenix and Emi as the four of them prepare for one final conflict. Their lives and the lives of those they love are on the line, as the war begins between those who are ordinary and those who are supernaturally adept.

Rudolf Steiner (1861–1925), the Austrian founder of Anthroposophy, is frequently viewed by those familiar with his teaching as unique and separate from other spiritual teachers of our modern era. While, Steiner is thought by anthroposophists to be a scientist and a philosopher, as well as an interpreter of events depicted in Christian scriptures, he is nevertheless generally ignored by scientists and philosophers, as well as by both liberal and fundamentalist scriptural scholars and theologians. In this book, Robert McDermott—the editor of American Philosophy and Rudolf Steiner, which investigates Steiner’s philosophy in the context of American philosophers—places Steiner and his work in the context of a variety of spiritual teachers and teachings, both Western and Eastern. In doing so, the reader is guided to new perspectives that show the similarities and contrasts between Steiner’s Spiritual Science and a number of Christian, Hindu, Buddhist, and secular spiritual worldviews. The kindred spirits in this book include His Holiness the Dalai Lama, C. G. Jung, Teilhard de Chardin, Martin Buber, Sri Aurobindo, Rabindranath Tagore, Gandhians, feminists, ecologists, and more. Steiner went as far up the spiritual ladder as any modern individual but, unlike some enthusiasts for Steiner, McDermott is also impressed by other religious thinkers and spiritual practitioners who have been helpful to those of us in need of encouragement and guidance and whose vistas and insights may not have been researched or explained by Steiner. For those with unbiased, open minds, this book presents a fresh look at Rudolf Steiner, a modern spiritual initiate, and his contributions to the world, along with a generous and appreciative view of his kindred spirits of our time.

In June 1934, W. B. Yeats gratefully received the award of a Goethe-Plakette from Oberburgermeister Krebs, four months after his early play The Countess Cathleen had been produced in Frankfurt by SS Untersturmfuhrer Bethge. Four years later, the poet publicly commended Nazi legislation before leaving Dublin to die in southern France. These hitherto neglected, isolated and scandalous details stand at the heart of this reflective study of Yeats's life, his attitudes towards death, and his politics. Blood Kindred identifies an obsession with family as the link connecting Yeats's late engagement with fascism to his Irish Victorian origins in suburban Dublin and industrializing Ulster. It carefully documents and analyses his involvement with both Maud Gonne and her daughter Iseult, his secretive consultations with Irish army officers during his Senate years, his incidental anti-Semitism, and his approval of the right-wing royalist group L'Action Française in the 1920s. The familiar peaks and troughs of Irish history, such as the 1916 Rising and the death of Parnell, are re-oriented within a radical new interpretation of Yeats's life and thought, his poetry and plays. As far as possible Bill McCormack lets Yeats speak for himself through generous quotation from his newly accessible correspondence. The result is a combative, entertaining biography which allows Ireland's greatest literary figure to be seen in the round for the first time.

The first time I meet an angel, it is Raphael and I am eighteen. Miriam is an unassuming college freshman stuck on campus after her spring break plans fall through. She's not a religious girl--when pressed she admits reluctantly to believing in a higher power. Truth be told, she's about as comfortable speaking about her faith as she is about her love life, which is to say, not at all. And then the archangel Raphael pays Miriam a visit, and she finds herself on a desperate mission to save two of her contemporaries. To top it all off, her twin brother, Mo, has also had a visitation, but from the opposite end of the good-evil spectrum, which leaves Miriam to wonder--has she been blessed and her brother cursed or vice versa? And what is the real purpose behind her mission? From the Hardcover edition.
