Beast In View: Margaret Millar
At 30, Helen Clarvoe is alone: Her only visitors are the staff at the hotel where she lives, and her only phone calls come from a stranger. Until that stranger, with a quiet, compelling voice, lures the aloof and financially secure Miss Clarvoe into a world of extortion, pornography, vengeance, madness, and murder. But who is the hunter and who is the victim? A gothic chiller which still feels incredibly modern, Beast in View is a true classic of the crime fiction genre. 1. Language: English.

Gennady Avlasenkos book Beasts About Me is the first edition of the popular scientific cycle My Unusual Interviews. Despite the fantastic story (animals talk, talk about themselves in detail, and sometimes even argue with the author), its still not a fairy tale. All information about the diverse inhabitants of our fauna, available in this book, is reliable from a scientific point of view, therefore the book Beasts About Me can rightfully be considered popular science literature.
Classic Henry James long story. According to Wikipedia: Henry James,(1843 - 1916), son of theologian Henry James Sr., brother of the philosopher and psychologist William James and diarist Alice James, was an American-born British author. He is one of the key figures of 19th century literary realism; the fine art of his writing has led many academics to consider him the greatest master of the novel and novella form. He spent much of his life in England and became a British subject shortly before his death. He is primarily known for a series of major novels in which he portrayed the encounter of America with Europe. His plots centered on personal relationships, the proper exercise of power in such relationships, and other moral questions. His method of writing from the point of view of a character within a tale allowed him to explore the phenomena of consciousness and perception, and his style in later works has been compared to impressionist painting.
The Beast:A Partial Preterist View Jonathan P. Leonard
Mixed martial arts is America´s fastest-growing sport - around the country, new gyms open their doors as enthusiastic viewers tune in to UFC matches. Although some dismiss it as brutal combat, its fighters are among the most dedicated athletes in any arena. But MMA also takes a heavy toll on the body, and it´s a rare fighter who can earn a living in the sport´s top ranks. Beast follows four high-level fighters at one of the sport´s elite gyms, Florida´s American Top Team. Doug Merlino had unprecedented access, training alongside the men for two years, traveling to their matches, and eating in their homes. Mirsad Bektic, a young Bosnian refugee who started in karate as a boy in Nebraska, dreams of stardom. Jeff Monson, a battered veteran at 41, is an outspoken, tattooed anarchist enjoying a bizarre burst of celebrity in Russia. Steve Mocco is a newcomer - a former Olympic wrestler from a close-knit, intellectual family. Finally there´s Daniel Straus, who, from a life short on opportunity, fights his way up to title contention. All will experience electrifying highs and career lows, and Merlino takes us along every step of the way while also examining the history, culture, business, and meaning of professional cage fighting. An audiobook for both the uninitiated and the hardcore fan, Beast offers a fascinating journey into an often misunderstood world. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Eric Vale.

I am firmly convinced that Islam is the single greatest challenge the Church will face before the return of Jesus, yet most are still either asleep or in denial. Mideast Beast completes and establishes the revolutionary argument introduced in Joel Richardson´s New York Times bestselling Islamic Antichrist, namely that the Antichrist will be a Muslim, whose empire will arise out of the Middle East. Whereas most students of the Bible have long held that some form of humanism or universalist religion would catapult the Antichrist to world power, Mideast Beast: The Scriptural Case for an Islamic Antichrist systematically proves from that the long awaited system of the Antichrist is even now before us and knocking at our door. Through a highly scholarly, theologically grounded, yet simple presentation, Richardson thoroughly corrects the objections of critics, establishing beyond a doubt, the Biblical case for an Islamic Antichrist. With large segments of the Christian missionary movement embracing a heretical method of outreach to Muslims known as ´´Chrislam´´ or ´´The Insider Movement´´, Mideast Beast cuts to the core of the matter, revealing the true nature and origins of Islam. After finishing Richardson´s work, you too will be convinced concerning the challenge of Islam to the Church. Some topics covered and questions answered: What about Psalm 83 & Isaiah 17?Is Gog of Magog from Russia, or somewhere else?What role does the nation of Turkey play?Answers to critics.What other scholars and commentators support this view?Will Antichrist really claim to be YHVH God Almighty?Why the Antichrist will not be a humanist.What´s comes next in the Middle East?What the Church must do now. 1.

Women Crime Writers: Four Suspense Novels of the 1950s (LOA #269):Mischief / The Blunderer / Beast in View / Fools´ Gold
A fierce and yet tender tale of loyalty between man and beast, told from the point of view of a dog. The Call of the Wild is the story of a dog in the frozen Yukon told from his point of view. But this brilliantly told tale of a canine hero is in fact a graphic picture of the great gold rush to the Klondike in 1897. Brutal and fierce on one hand, it is also a story of tenderness and loyalty between man and beast and remains one of the best- selling books in American literary history. 1. Language: English.
