Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt/Synopsis: In recent years, there has been something of an explosion in the performance of live music to silent films. There is a wide range of films with live and new scores that run from the historically accurate orchestral scores to contemporary sounds by groups such as Pet Shop Boys or by experimental composers and gothic heavy metal bands. It is no exaggeration to claim that music constitutes a bridge between the old silent film and the modern audience; music is also a channel for non-scholarly audiences to gain an appreciation of silent films. Music has become a means both for musicians and audiences to understand this bygone film art anew. This book is the first of its kind in that it aims to bring together writings and interviews to delineate the culture of providing music for silent films. It not only has the character of a scholarly work but is also something of a manual in that it discusses how to make music for silent films.

Among them, a child searches for his family. A special agent turned enemy of the state survives a fiery plane crash with no way to reach his daughter.

In the absence of civilization, a new threat emerges. In the stillness, it waits and watches, preying on their weakness. Their only hope is to find more survivors, rise above their fear, and face the oncoming darkness. ★★★★★ "After reading the first book, I went and got the whole series. After many weeks of enjoyment I kind of had withdrawals over being finished with the series." -- Cynthia ★★★★★ "I loved the development of each character, honestly I could not put these books down!!! Sean Platt and David Wright are now my favorite sci-fi writers, I can’t wait to read everything they’ve written!" -- Lenore Barszczuk ★★★★★ "Why did I like this book and give it five stars? Let me try to count the ways: 1) This is an apocalyptic story with a bonus - a second apocalyptic story embedded. I have never read any other book like this. 2) The characters in this book have more depth than you originally anticipate. 3) Just as you think you've discovered the hero, s(he) proves you wrong - all the way to the end of the book." -- Clarkson ★★★★★ "This is the best apocalyptic thriller I have ever read. So gripping and terrifying at times. Loved it! I caught myself staying up til almost daylight because I couldn't make myself put it down." -- Lisa P ★★★★★ "This is storytelling at its best. A compelling plot and great characters. I am thankful that I started this series after it was finished because it would have killed me to have to wait for more episodes!" -- booklovingmom ★★★★★ "A terrific tale...well written! Superbly paced with lots of action... nearly always something going on or about to happen." -- R. Nicholson ★★★★★ "If you are a fan of the post apocalyptic, dystopian genre, and prefer epic sized tales, stop reading and just go buy the book. This is the kind of thing that has me completely mesmerized. I'm sneaking chapters at work, I'm up at 3am reading it, I'm reading before I leave in the morning, waiting to pick up kids... You get the idea." -- D. T. Douglas ★★★★★ "This series is pure eye-ball crack for the reader... Great plot, realistic characters, heart-smashing action, it's just twenty levels of awesomesauce, as is the case with all of their stories... If you love drama, action, thriller and post-apocalyptic, you will love, YESTERDAY'S GONE." -- Flint Macwood If you're looking for a tense post-apocalyptic thriller that will leave you guessing until the very end, Yesterday's Gone is for you!

Download or Read book Yesterday's Tomorrow written by Bini Adamczak and published by MIT Press. This book was released on 2021-04-20 with total page 184 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt/Synopsis: How the communist revolution failed, presented in a series of catastrophes. The communist project in the twentieth century grew out of utopian desires to oppose oppression and abolish class structures, to give individual lives collective meaning. The attempts to realize these ideals became a series of colossal failures. In Yesterday's Tomorrow, Bini Adamczak examines these catastrophes, proceeding in reverse chronological order from 1939 to 1917: the Hitler-Stalin Pact, the Great Terror of 1937, the failure of the European Left to prevent National Socialism, Stalin's rise to power, and the bloody rebellion at Kronstadt. In the process, she seeks a future that never happened.

Summary Book and excerpt Yesterday's Murder :
Download or Read book Yesterday's Murder written by Craig Rice and published by Head of Zeus Ltd. This book was released on 2018-11-09 with total page 230 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt/Synopsis: From the author of the John J. Malone Mysteries: An estranged relative becomes heir to a Chesapeake Bay fortune—and his family's ghostly history. If it hadn't been for his great-uncle Philip, David Telefair would've grown up unwanted, forlorn, and poverty stricken in a New England parsonage. But for twenty years, David's generous benefactor paid for his education, yearly summer camps, living expenses as he grew older, and any amenities he ever needed. Odd that David had never spoken to him in his entire life. Odder still that after all this time, the aging Philip has now extended an invitation for David to meet him at his isolated estate on Telefair Island in the Chesapeake. From the moment David arrives, something feels . . . off. First was the local minister's daughter's queer way of describing David's visit: inevitable; then the unaccountable loathing in the eyes of a Telefair servant; and finally a perilously pale female cousin who welcomes David with a warning: "You ought never to have come." This is less a family reunion than an ingeniously designed trap of murder, madness, and nasty family secrets. This stand-alone novel by Craig Rice, the first mystery writer ever to appear on the cover of Time magazine, is "an incredible tale . . . where ghosts still pull the strings of human lives, where revenge and hate outlast a generation and punishment is insidiously prolonged . . . a haunting sense of impending gloom" (Kirkus Reviews).

They thought they were alone. But they were wrong... On October 15th, humanity went missing, leaving only a handful of scattered survivors behind. The world is now empty of friends, family, and neighbors. Among them, an eight-year-old child searches for his family, only to find a nightmare he never expected. A special agent turned enemy of the state survives a fiery plane crash with no way to reach his daughter. But is he who he says, or even thinks he is? A reporter will do anything to reconnect with his son, even if he has to wander the empty streets of Manhattan to find him, and even if those streets aren't really so empty. A mother and daughter are desperate to survive with their two remaining neighbors, on the run but with nowhere to go.

Get Yesterday’s Gone now and see what thousands of readers like you have already discovered! ★★★★★ "I started reading this book and COULD. NOT. STOP. I read it at work. I read it in the bathroom. I admit it - I even read it a little while driving - during every stop light and every parking lot imitation I sat through on I-84. I couldn't put it down until I was done." -- Sidney von Katzendame ★★★★★ "So, first star is for creating the mystery. Second star is for the writing which sets the scene without weighing down the action with irrelevant and excessively detailed descriptions. Third star is for neatly balancing action with story so that neither outweighs the other. Fourth star is for the array of characters whose personalities and personal stories are built along the way. Fifth star is for making me want to continue the story and buy the next season." -- Tammy ★★★★★ "When Dickens wrote in serialized format he was paid by the word. This led to lengthy chapters that came to define the modern novel. If Platt & Wright could get paid per tense moment, they'd make serious bank." -- WMG ★★★★★ "I absolutely LOVE 'Yesterday's Gone', and although I haven't hit the explanation yet (and trust me, thinking of the possibilities of an explanation during Season 1 and 2 will drive you absolutely crazy), My time for me and my husband to read this series together every night is the best spent time in my day." -- Micah Harkins Season One of Yesterday’s Gone by Sean Platt and David W. Wright is a tense post-apocalyptic serialized thriller that will leave you guessing to the end. Combining TV’s thrilling, episodic nature with the in-depth character only found in novels, Yesterday’s Gone created a new wave in fiction. If you like The Stand and LOST, you’ll love this series that combines tension, intrigue, and fear of the unknown. WARNING: This is a post-apocalyptic horror story where bad people do evil things, and as such, this series features disturbing scenes and foul language. While it is all within the context of the story, some listeners may find this content offensive.

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt/Synopsis: Yesterday’s Melodies Todays Memories is a rare collection of profiles of all important music-makers of the Hindi Film Industry between 1931 and 1970. It not only gives a biographical background of each music artiste, but it goes further to interview many of the surviving giants and completes the task by listing some of the best songs with which that person is associated. Here are singers that include the whole gamut from KL Saigal to Asha Bhosle, lyricists that include Sahir and Gulzar, music composers from Naushad to RD Burman, artistes that were part-time singers and full time actors like Ashok Kumar, melody queens like Noor Jahan and Lata Mangeshkar, gentlemen lyricists like Prem Dhawan and gentlemen singers like Manna Dey, mischief-makers like Kishore Kumar and rebels without pause like OP Nayyar and Majrooh Sultanpuri. In fact, this book is a house in which all these great talents live happily, each in a separate room, given space for self-expression. The serious research that has gone into this book is evident as you move from one chapter to another, opening layers after layers presented non-seriously. Over 100 music makers are presented this way and many more in a huge single chapter.

Book excerpt/Synopsis: Jason Rhodes, convinced that he is the favorite of a lesser god, whose name will remain anonymous, has two driving ambitions. He must become a famous writer (He wisely does not ask for any prizes) and he must have Stephanie Howorth, a young Mississippi girl so endowed with attributes, both physical and mental, that Aphrodite would have wept at the sight of her. Jason's first ambition suffered major setbacks early on because he and Stephanie and three other service personnel become marooned on an island in the Fijis. This is just after WWII, when young aristocratic women occasionally gave the time of day to commoners like Jason (if they were handsome enough). Jason was not only handsome he was practically the only man around, and so his second driving ambition made great progress up until a Fiji chieftain decides to give them a ride to the nearest airport. By this time the baby has been born and is learning Fijian. In the States Jason's fortunes switch quickly. He loses Stephanie because of one part hardheadedness and two parts stubbornness. But his books, produced late at night in an attic, begin to sell like hotcakes....Click here for more.

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt/Synopsis: “Can yesterday’s demon be the hero of today?” **Yesterday’s Demon is book 3 in the Sharpest Kiss series, but it can be read as a stand-alone story.** She’s got a talking dog, a magic rock, a supernatural mystery to solve, and a hot friend determined to make her his. Can an ex-vampire girl find love and redemption after more than nine centuries of iniquity…or will her dark secret doom everything she’s ever longed for? Marta has a big secret. She may look like a teenager, but she’s really almost a thousand years old. For centuries, she existed as a vampire, but now she’s just a normal human girl again, stripped of all her supernatural powers and many of her memories. But whether she remembers it or not, she knows she used to be a monster. She did a lot of horrible things in her past. She’s determined to spend what’s left of her human life trying to make amends by helping other people in trouble, especially in cases where her knowledge of the paranormal might come in handy. When her friend Harris calls on her, asking for her help finding his college roommate’s missing sister, Marta agrees to open an investigation. Dark magic might be involved in the young girl’s disappearance, but Marta’s confident she can unravel the case; she knows a few spells herself, and she’s got an enchanted talking dog and a psychic stone to help her out. What worries her most is the brand-new set of human hormones raging through her system, making it next to impossible to keep things with Harris strictly platonic. Marta may have made the mistake of locking lips with Harris once or twice before, but she knows it’d be wrong to ever let it happen again—and certainly to take things any further. Her past is just too ugly, and her new life is too bizarre and dangerous. Harris is better off staying far away from her. If only he didn’t seem so intent on doing just the opposite. And if only his piercing green eyes and sultry kisses weren’t so incredibly irresistible… MORE ABOUT THE BOOK: Yesterday’s Demon is a complete novel of 80,000 words. It is narrated in third person from Marta’s point of view. It is Book 3 in the Sharpest Kiss series but can be enjoyed as a stand-alone story. If you would prefer to read the other books first, the order is: #1: The Sharpest Kiss (Lucy and Aaron) #2: Back to Bite You (Jessica and Nathan) #3: Yesterday’s Demon (Marta and Harris) Reader advisory: Yesterday’s Demon contains mild cursing and mild sensuality.
