With entries that range from specific works to authors, folklore, and popular culture (including music, film, television, urban legend, and gaming), this book provides a single-volume resource on all things ghostly in the United States and in other countries. • Provides accessible, interesting, and fun-to-read information authored by expert researchers and coedited by scholars who are experts on the topic of ghosts across human culture • Presents analytical discussions of the figure of the ghost in each work that will be beneficial to students in film studies, English, or other classes tasked with writing an essay on the horror genre or ghost films and books • Explores how the idea of the ghost implies belief in there being more to human existence than the physical body and is intrinsically connected to the concept of the afterlife—and how these concepts often coexisted uneasily with beliefs regarding afterlife in religious theologies
For fourteen centuries the story of Arthur was a legend, misted over by the tradition of romantic hero-tales. But Arthur was real - a man of towering strength, a dreamer and a warrior who actually lived, fought and died for his impossible dream. In Sutcliffe's now legendary retelling, King Arthur is brought passionately to life. This brilliant reconception of the Arthurian epic cuts through the familiar myths and tells the story of the real King Arthur: Artos the Bear, the mighty warrior-king who saved the last lights of Western civilization when the barbarian darkness descended in the fifth century. Artos here comes alive: bold and forceful in battle, warm and generous in friendship, tough in politics, shrewd in the strategy of war - and tender and tragically tormented in love. Out of the braiding of ancient legend, fresh research, soaring imagination and hypnotic narrative skill comes a novel that has richly earned its reputation as a classic.

"Meticulous Nicholas...Goes to Camp" is a story about a 9 year old boy(Nicholas) who goes to sleep away camp for the very first time. He remains meticulous in his preparation for this camp journey, from color coding his shirts in his luggage, to neatly keeping his camp bungalow clean, that is, until he meets his sloppy soon to be roomate, Butch. Together, the boys participate in various camp activities in which the bold difference in their personalites continue to shock Meticulous Nicholas, from the way Butch eats at the Camp's "Grub Shack," to the way he plays his games in camp. However different they may be, together they form a friendship and learn how to fuse as one to become teamates, roomates, and most of all, friends. Meticulous Nicholas is a good positive role model for children of all ages, and parent's will love him as well! .
