These essays, published by the Hong Kong Branch of the Royal Asiatic Society in association with Oxford University Press, and written by an international group of scholars, critically examine different aspects of the present religious state in China.

Does he belong to the land or to the sea? Readers who loved Kelly Barnhill’s The Girl Who Drank the Moon and Pam Muñoz Ryan’s Echo will be transported to the place where the water and land meet in this exquisitely crafted coming-of-age tale about a selkie boy. Aran has never truly fit in with his selkie clan. He was born in his human form, without a pelt to transform him into a sleek, strong seal. Each day he waits, left behind while his selkie family explores the deep ocean. What if his pelt never comes? Does the Moon even see him? Is he putting his clan at risk? When his mother undertakes a journey to the far north to seek help, Aran is left in the care of a reclusive human woman on remote Spindle Island. Life on land is full of more wonders—and more dangers—than Aran could have ever imagined. Soon Aran will be forced to decide: will he fight for his place on land, or return to his home in the sea?

White Cargo is the forgotten story of the thousands of Britons who lived and died in bondage in Britain’s American colonies. In the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries, more than 300,000 white people were shipped to America as slaves. Urchins were swept up from London’s streets to labor in the tobacco fields, where life expectancy was no more than two years. Brothels were raided to provide “breeders” for Virginia. Hopeful migrants were duped into signing as indentured servants, unaware they would become personal property who could be bought, sold, and even gambled away. Transported convicts were paraded for sale like livestock. Drawing on letters crying for help, diaries, and court and government archives, Don Jordan and Michael Walsh demonstrate that the brutalities usually associated with black slavery alone were perpetrated on whites throughout British rule. The trade ended with American independence, but the British still tried to sell convicts in their former colonies, which prompted one of the most audacious plots in Anglo-American history. This is a saga of exploration and cruelty spanning 170 years that has been submerged under the overwhelming memory of black slavery. White Cargo brings the brutal, uncomfortable story to the surface.

I am no coward. I want to make that perfectly clear. But after my life turned into a horror movie, I take fear a lot more seriously now. I finally became Dr Carrie Ames just eight months ago. Then I was attacked in the hospital morgue by a vampire. Now I m a vampire and it turns out I have a blood tie to the monster who sired me. And of course he's one of the most evil vampires on earth. With my sire hell-bent on turning me into a soulless killer and his sworn enemy set to exterminate me, things couldn't get much worse except I m attracted to them both. Drinking blood, living as an immortal demon and being a pawn between two warring vampire factions isn't exactly how I'd imagined my future. But, as my father used to say, the only way to conquer fear is to face it. So that ­s what I ll do. Fangs bared. Love Sookie Stackhouse and Bella Swan? It ­s time to meet newly turned vampire Carrie Ames.

This is a collection of transformation poems. They map the poet's turning toward a healing from grief and brokenness. They explore the rich textures of friendship and render, with clarity and delicacy, both outer and inner landscapes.

This is a collection of transformation poems. They map the poet's turning toward a healing from grief and brokenness. They explore the rich textures of friendship and render, with clarity and delicacy, both outer and inner landscapes. Morley's poetry has a deep affinity with painting--particularity Klee and Picasso. In the poet's words: "From the Abstract Expressionists I discovered a way of seeing the modern world in its totality, finding meaning in what was defaced, injured, dishevelled, torn, eroded and disfigured, without rejection. To transform or transmute these elements but still to embody them was my task as poet." This poetry is primarily for an adult, feminist reader. Ms. Morley is very accessible and this collection will appeal to men as well as women.

Disillusioned after yet another failed attempt to establish a benign kingdom with enlightened leaders, Morgan, once Kingmaker, flees his hunters and seeks escape in his distant past. On his journey, he confronts the ruins of his life manifested through broken and conquered nations. Beset by these uncertainties and failures, he battles the resurgence of the darker side of his nature. Close behind him, as usual, is his savage twin, but this time with a different objective, although his hunger for conflict remains the same. He seeks to urge his brother to face the reality of Fate and accept his destiny-a destiny shared by them both. The legacy of his old mentor, Limp-Foot reaches out from the grave and torments Morgan in the form of the last Inheritors of the long-lost Brotherhood. Feeling trapped by the circumstances of his creation, Morgan turns, thanks to his much-redeemed brother and finds that he is no longer alone. For the first time since childhood, his indomitable sibling stands at his side, their purpose forged as 'One'. With them strides a determined and select band of talented men and women, gathered and chosen mostly by Krarl who now has a focused and mysterious vision of the Future. The Protectorate Empire, embroiled in its poisonous internal politics, lies unprepared to face the greatest threat yet to its survival.
