В литературния живот на ХХ век името Стефан Цвайг (1881 - 1942) оставя отпечатък в много области; австийският писател твори в областта на романа, разказа, биографията, драмата, занимава се с журналистика. Известен е на българския читател най-вече със знаменитите си биографии на Мария Антоанета, Мария Стюард, Еразъм Ротердамски, докато разказите и повестите му остават донякъде в сянка.
В най-новия си брой списание BIOGRAPH се стреми да запълни тази празнота, като предлага на читателя три от тези изключителни повести, пропити не само с усета на Цвайг за езика в цялата му богата изразност, а и с болезненото осъзнаване на актуалните за неговото време проблеми на войната през очите на обикновения човек, смазващата хватка на инфлацията, отразена в житейската съдба на малките хора с техните радости, както и на винаги живата тема за копнежа на човешкото сърце. Една от тези повести - "Писмо на една непозната" - през 1948 година е претворена във филм на Хауърд Кох, предложен от Библиотеката на конгреса на САЩ за съхраняване в Националния филмов регистър на САЩ като "културно, исторически и естетически значим" - признание не само за филма, а и за автора на едноименната повест, останал в историята на литературата като един от писателите с най-гъвкаво перо. Сборникът съдържа повестите: "Невидимата сбирка" "Случката край Женевското езеро" "Писмо на една непозната"
لن تجد بداخل الكتاب أي شئ يحمل عنوان "تخيل" لكنك ستجد بين طياته الكثير من الأشياء التي يلزمها الخيال فهل لك أن تتحرر من قيود العقل وتجرب متعة أن تترك العنان لخيالك وتجعله قائدا لروحك بعض الوقت
Love is conceived in the mind of a vampire long before it is ever realized. Vampire prince, Sebastian Pearce, has waited six hundred years for the right human mate. While vampires no longer require live donors for sustenance, Mother Nature has played a cruel trick on them making breeders a rare commodity. As numbers in Sebastian’s imperial house continue to dwindle, his virgin bride eludes him. That is, until he happens upon a young woman searching for a secret vampire text, the Book of Descent. Sebastian’s need for her is more potent than anything he’s felt for another woman, but Everleigh Marbut isn’t innocent. Worst of all she’s an American with a mind of her own, and has no desire to carry an immortal being. But fate has forged connections between vampires and human mates in the form of the Red Veil for generations. As the Red Veil descends over Sebastian and Everleigh they fight their attraction to each other, but neither of them realize they’re being lured into a battle pitting ancient myth against the power of modern science to recreate life until it’s too late. The destiny of his lineage, and the bond forged between them, now rests in their acceptance of each other as they are. Can a modern woman endure an eternity of devotion from a sexy, old-world vampire?
Known to millions for his television and film roles, Chris Elliott is one of the most beloved comedians of his generation.
With his novel The Shroud of the Thwacker, Elliott delivers a laugh-out-loud parody that will delight mystery lovers as well as his devoted fans. Set in New York City in 1882, the story hilariously chronicles the adventures of police chief Caleb Spencer and his two cohorts, Evening Post reporter Liz Smith and mayor Teddy Roosevelt, as they unravel the mystery of the world’s first (and most bizarre) serial killer: Jack the Jolly Thwacker. The elusive Thwacker dresses his victims in outlandish costumes, leaves behind taunting poetry, and leads the authorities on a wild chase through New York streets and landmarks (complete with gas-powered wooden cell phones, carriages, gaslights, and the original Original Ray’s Pizzeria). In a bizarre twist, Chris Elliott himself joins the action, using time travel and historical documents to uncover the Thwacker’s identity. With a wink and a nod to Patricia Cornwell, The DaVinci Code, and Caleb Carr’s mysteries, Elliott does for the historical crime genre what Douglas Adams did for science fiction in The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy.
Go to http: //cosmumps.org for a download of just the examples of the book. This book serves as an explanation of Cache ObjectScript and the MUMPS programming language. It is designed as both a comprehensive learning guide and a technical reference manual. This is useful to programmers of any level, whether you are new to the language or an experienced developer looking for more information on Cache Objects. The book starts with Basic Concepts whilst introducing simple MUMPS commands.
It then progresses on to System-Supplied Functions. Two full chapters are devoted to the discussion of the MUMPS Global Structure, the heart of Cache/MUMPS. Pattern Matching, Comparison Operators, File Processing as well as Testing and Debugging with Error Processing come next. More advanced subjects are introduced with Procedures, Structured, and Robust Code. Before moving on to Objects, Date Processing is thoroughly discussed. Starting with Chapter 21 Object Technology is introduced; Object subjects such as Classes, Properties, (Instance and Class) Methods, Data types, (List and Array) Collections and Relationships are incorporated. In addition, Embedded and Dynamic SQL is included for every Object Data Structure. The discussion of Object Technology is concluded with a table of Object Calls and finally the last chapter ends Good Programming Concepts." Taking over 12 years to write, over 500 pages and over 700 code examples make it the perfect desk-top reference, the last Cache ObjectScript and MUMPS book you will ever need. Paul Bradney (Futurecode Ltd.) writes: "I've been a programmer for almost 30 years now and I'm finding your book very intuitive in learning about Cache, in both the new stuff which I'm a bumbling amateur at and even learning features about stuff I thought I already knew. " Ed de Moel (Author 'M[UMPS] by Example'): "In short, with the little I have read so far, I would recommend this book for both new students of the language, and for people who are moving from a non-Cache implementation to Cache, as well as for people who are starting to use the object extensions in Cache." From "Richard F. Walters (Author 'M Programming, A comprehensive Guide'): . . . I highly recommend it for Cache users." Rob Tweed of (M/Gateway Developments Ltd.) writes: "This book is most timely. MUMPS, for many years the ugly-duckling of the database world, is having something of a renaissance, driven by several factors . . . There are a lot of MUMPS applications in the commercial world, quietly performing their day-to-day responsibilities in a reliable and scalable way, and the above factors mean they aren't going away soon. On the contrary, enlightened developers are realising that there are new and exciting ways now available for extending the capabilities and reach of these "legacy" applications. Modern, web-based MUMPS applications are capable of being at the very leading edge in terms of their functionality, UI design, performance, and scalability: it is a very exciting time to be a MUMPS developer. All of this means two things: (1) we urgently need a new generation of MUMPS developers to take over the support, maintenance and extension of those applications; (2) there's a lot of work available for young developers who are willing to learn about MUMPS. Mike's book is a new and modern guide for anyone wanting to find out about this fascinating language and database to which I've been hopely addicted to since the early 1980s and for which I've been an unrelenting advocate. It gently guides the student through the basics and provides a comprehensive coverage of the advanced aspects of the language. Importantly, it also covers the extensions of the technology that is specific to Cache. I thoroughly recommend this book to anyone wanting to learn MUMPS, or anyone wishing to provide guidance to new staff that needs to get up to speed with MUMPS. Soli Deo Gloria"
