The most ambitious comics event of 2016 brings war to the 41st century - with Rai leading the charge! One hundred years from today, Father - the benevolent artificial intelligence that governs the island nation of Japan - will gain sentience. To defend its borders, Father will take drastic action by launching Japan into space…where its people will thrive in isolation, away from the overpopulated and resource-deprived planet below. Over the centuries, as New Japan orbits our increasingly unstable world, it will become a model society - one built on peace, prosperity… and Father's control. A thousand years from today, Father will create the first Rai, founding a lineage of technologically enhanced heroes engineered to defend New Japan and sworn to protect it from all enemies. For hundreds of years into the future, the Rai will single-handedly enforce New Japan's justice well…and serve Father without question. Now, at the dawn of 4001 A.D., the latest Rai is about to inherit the dark truth behind the origin of his kind…and discover the sinister secret at the heart of Father's existence. For New Japan to live, Earth must die…and as Rai challenges his former master for the first time in more than a millennium, the lone guardian of New Japan will be cast out of his own Father's kingdom… Exiled from the only realm he's ever known, Rai now walks the ravaged world of 4001 A.D. in search of forgotten heroes like himself… on a mission to collect the last surviving legends of a broken planet…and to forge a rebellion with the power to bring the most advanced civilization in history crashing back down to Earth. New York Times best-selling writer Matt Kindt (DIVINITY II) and superstar artist Clayton Crain (X-Force) bring their startling vision of the year 4001 A.D. to new heights…with the fate of New Japan floating in the balance! Collecting 4001 A.D. #1-4.

Deluxe edition includes two bonus tracks. 2016 album from the acclaimed jazz artist. Esperanza Spalding presents Emily's D+Evolution, a rekindling of her childhood interest in theater, poetry and movement, which delves into a broader concept of performance. Taking a new approach to her on-stage persona, the remarkable Spalding taps into new creative energy, delivering musical vignettes inspired during a "sleepless night of full moon inspiration." As she puts it, "Emily is my middle name, and I'm using this fresh persona as my inner navigator. This project is about going back and reclaiming un-cultivated curiosity, and using it as a compass to move forward and expand. My hope for this group is to create a world around each song, there are a lot of juicy themes and stories in the music. We will be staging the songs as much as we play them, using characters, video, and the movement of our bodies".

James G. Frazer - Il ramo d'oro. Studio sulla magia e la religione
Italian | 2016 | 1148 pages | ISBN 8833974766 | EPUB | 1,3 MB

Quest’opera, pubblicata per la prima volta nel 1890 in due volumi, si andò progressivamente sviluppando nelle mani dell’autore, venendo a costituire, nell’edizione definitiva del 1911-15, una monumentale raccolta di studi in dodici volumi sulle culture primitive. Qui ne proponiamo il compendio, concepito dall’autore stesso per una più agevole divulgazione del suo complesso pensiero, motivato fondamentalmente da una teoria evoluzionistica della storia. Un’antica leggenda italica – in ricordo del famoso ramo d’oro che Enea colse prima di entrare nel regno dell’Ade – voleva «re del bosco» colui il quale si fosse dimostrato capace di uccidere il sacerdote del santuario di Diana a Nemi e di strappare un ramo dall’albero che si trovava nel recinto. Frazer fu particolarmente incuriosito dal racconto e volle indagarne le origini, prendendo in esame miti, pratiche religiose e magiche, e riti di ogni tempo e luogo.

Gelide scene d'inverno - Ann Beattie

Ann Beattie, autrice di culto negli Stati Uniti e capofila della corrente minimalista, è tuttora considerata una delle più grandi maestre della short story americana. "Gelide scene d'inverno", il romanzo con cui esordì nel 1976, racconta la storia del giovane Charles, impiegato in un ufficio statale, ossessivamente innamorato di Laura - la donna con cui ha avuto una storia ma che ha preferito tornare al quotidiano ménage col marito - e circondato da una famiglia disfunzionale (la madre squilibrata, il patrigno pieno di buone intenzioni ma irrecuperabilmente mediocre): è il ritratto di un'America disillusa, che ha visto svanire l'ebbrezza visionaria degli anni Sessanta e di Woodstock e deve fare i conti con la propria desolata normalità…
