Monkey Puzzle Book Description:

Now, in the blank-faced and mazed city, death had become vicious and secret and cold. Somewhere out there, an ego was coiled, waiting. Winner of a Golden Dagger award, Paula Gosling’s Monkey Puzzle introduces us to Detective Lieutenant Jack Stryker. An obsessive cop, an oddball, and (occasionally) a genius. When Grantham University’s most unpopular professor is viciously murdered there are a myriad of potential suspects, and one of whom happens to be connected to Stryker’s past . . . The murderous attacks continue. The city and the campus panic. Stryker is trapped in a maze of conflicting motives, emotions and clues. And at the center of the maze awaits – a monster.

Alla Nazimova in Googolplexnaire Book Description:

The Hitler Wins of the novelette of Smart Arse got into ambrosia and the occult, and eventually it was entitled Superbitch. Terry Parrott had indulged anti-Semitism. Maldek and the calendar were attacked with the Virgin Mary and Jesus Christ, and antichristianity put the Jewification of Maldek, in its debunked place. His anti-Lamaism was put below his Maldekism or Maldekianism. Lamaism was Oriental Jewification of Maldek and Tree of Life. So there were things akin to limnology and antitreeoflife, which Thoreau and Emerson were assimilated by, ex post facto? Things akin to Maldek and Machinery's Handbook were signs of parasitic Jewification, including the penumbral, obvious R.U.R.'s references to science of war and oldest, pivotal religions. Heron clashed with weapons of Jews, or weapons of the Dead Sea Scrolls. So Lamaistically the wrong kinds of Jews had goaded plantations, making gestures of zoandry and The Koran. The mark of the beast was a castration of numerology, and devoid of the Dead Sea Scrolls it entails a magical significance, partly. Ex post facto, Jews attacked Tree of Life, utilizing zoandry and plantations, crookedly. So NAFTA had bolstered sparse population of Jews, in pastoral communities. So akin to Jews' imitation of numerology, other things were imitated and castrated, including the pentacle or the pentagram.

Dictionary of Plant Lore Book Description:

Knowledge of plant names can give insight into largely forgotten beliefs. For example, the common red poppy is known as "Blind Man" due to an old superstitious belief that if the poppy were put to the eyes it would cause blindness. Many plant names derived from superstition, folk lore, or primal beliefs. Other names are purely descriptive and can serve to explain the meaning of the botanical name. For example, Beauty-Berry is the name given to the American shrub that belongs to the genus Callicarpa. Callicarpa is Greek for beautiful fruit. Still other names come from literary sources providing rich detail of the transmission of words through the ages. Conceived as part of the author's wider interest in plant and tree lore and ethnobotanical studies, this fully revised edition of Elsevier's Dictionary of Plant Names and Their Origins contains over 30,000 vernacular and literary English names of plants. Wild and cultivated plants alike are identified by the botanical name. Further detail provides a brief account of the meaning of the name and detailed commentary on common usage. * Includes color images * Inclusive of all Latin terms with vernacular derivatives * The most comprehensive guide for plant scientists, linguists, botanists, and historians
