New York Times bestseller by award-winning writers Neil Gaiman and Michael Reaves. Joey Harker isn’t a hero...
Teens—and tweens and adults—who obsessively read the His Dark Materials and Harry Potter series will be riveted by Neil Gaiman and Michael Reaves's InterWorld and its sequel, The Silver Dream. InterWorld tells the story of Joey Harker, a very average kid who discovers that his world is only one of a trillion alternate earths. Some of these earths are ruled by magic. Some are ruled by science. All are at war. Joey teams up with alternate versions of himself from an array of these worlds. Together, the army of Joeys must battle evil magicians Lord Dogknife and Lady Indigo to keep the balance of power between all the earths stable. The Silver Dream: After mastering the ability to walk between dimensions, Joey Harker and his fellow InterWorld freedom fighters are now on a mission to maintain peace between the rival powers of magic and science who seek to control all worlds. When a stranger named Acacia somehow follows Joey back to InterWorld's base, things get complicated. No one knows who she is or where she's from—or how she knows so much about InterWorld.
The heart-pounding conclusion to the InterWorld series, by award-winning writers Neil Gaiman, Michael Reaves and Mallory Reaves

Dunjer's only chance was to find the Linzeteum before the word got out that he'd lost it. But this meant violating space and venturing into Interworld, a journey that turned into a nightmare odyssey and sent him ripping through the very fabric of the universe.

The true story of a woman's struggle with grief following the death of her beloved husband.
"Faith and reason, belief and experimentation, spirituality and science in our modern era, we have come to view these concepts as inherently dichotomous. How can spirituality be considered a science when the very foundation of modern science was established in contrast or even in opposition to certain systems of thought inherited from religious traditions?" "Through a series of innovative and thought-provoking studies Dr. Bahram Elahi redefines spirituality us an experimental science rooted in concrete and empirically verifiable realities."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.

The extraordinary real-life adventure story of this rescue team leads on to show how Volume One was just the handle of a group soul instrument. Volume Two is its business end. Talks abound, rescues get tough, tensions build and issues reach their climax as the point is made to discerning minds. Once and for all Peter has to make his life choice, upon which hinges the future of Ashdene. But the future of that issue which compelled a plan of incarnation for so many, is still open to their taking its handle and using the business end in succour of ordinary folk who pass over daily with a problem of perception - a problem increased now by commoner belief in scientific materialism's paradigm. When asked what help today's New Age culture is giving, one discarnate helper answered: "Very little. Its practitioners and teachers are still ignorant of our viewpoint on the whole. Nobody's listening properly. Nobody's truly caring among those who do have knowledge, even though the problem is closer to you than your ecological one. And because it is closer, it's also easier for caring souls on your plane to remedy with our full cooperation. This extra mass of earthbound humanity compounds the situation you encountered in your rescue work earlier. It needs understanding and strong minds to sit in harmony and focus concerted thoughts of love onto whatever picture they have of these unfortunates, also to inform them out loud. As you know, the effect will be more powerful from your side and will link up with our own. In principle it's the same tactic for a mass of lost ones as for individuals: You push and we'll pull!"
The combination of the new information and communication technologies (ICTs) and radio is opening up a range of possibilities for communication in the developing world. Broadcasters who used to have to travel for hours to find a public library to research a programme, now have instant access to the internet, whilst national, regional and global radio news agencies are making world news and alternative perspectives available to even the most remote communities. These developments are also helping to keep communities together, despite the distances imposed by migration trends. The case studies in this book demonstrate the value of converging radio and new ITCs for development and suggest that radio will have even greater significance and value in the future. The book is based on the findings of a FAO international workshop, held in February 2001.
