Eigenständige Kurzgeschichte aus der Serva Reihe von Arik Steen. «Um herrschen zu können, musst du erst mal dienen lernen!», sagte der König: «Du wirst deine Sachen packen. Ich schicke dich fort!» «Fort?» Der König nickte: «Zu deiner Tante in den Süden.» «Bei den Göttern, sie ist eine Hexe!», sagte Atlacoya: «Und ...» Der König gab ihm eine schallende Ohrfeige: «Und meine Schwester. Sprich nicht so von ihr!» «Vergibt mir! Vater!», meinte Atlacoya. Und er meinte es ehrlich. Auch wenn er nicht allzu viel von seiner Tante hielt, so wollte er doch nicht die Schwester seines Vaters beleidigen. «Sie wird dir beibringen zu dienen!», meinte der König: «Nur so wirst du König werden!» «Eine Frau?», Atlacoya schaute ihn verwirrt und ein wenig belustigt an. «Eine Frau, ja! Und glaube mir. Sie kann das gut!» Atlacoya ist der älteste Sohn des Königs der Nehataner. Anders als sein Bruder frönt er vor allem dem Alkohol und den Frauen.

Isabella Martinez was always good at rebelling, against her parents, her school, her boyfriends. She had needs no one could meet, desires so dark no one could tame her. When her wild side gets her in trouble with the law, she doesn’t think twice when given a choice between prison or transport to a new world as an Interstellar Bride. Alone on Earth, the decision was easy. But when she arrives on Viken, she learns she’s been matched to not one fierce, alien brute, but three—and their desires, their needs, their demands are far darker and more demanding than her own. As enemies plot to destroy Viken’s place in the Coalition Fleet, Bella will have to learn to trust, or lose everything. Her mates will feed the hunger inside her no others ever could. Their complete dominance will either break her…or set her free forever. And love? Well, they can demand, taunt and tease her submissive body. But her heart will not be so easily won by Her Viken Mates.

Pagan Portals - Pan
Author: Melusine Draco
Publisher: John Hunt Publishing
Those who have grown up with Pan as a playmate remember how, back in the day, it would be possible for a young child to disappear into the woods with only a dog for company for hours on end without there being a hue and cry raised in its absence; and it was on those woodland rides and pathways - summer or winter - that Mélusine Draco often encountered Pan.
Lady Chatterley's Lover
Author: D. H. Lawrence
Publisher: Harper Collins
Emotionally and physically isolated from her disabled husband, Lady Constance Chatterley enters into an affair with the couple’s gamekeeper, Oliver Mellors. While she finds physical fulfillment and love with Mellors, Constance is nevertheless forced to confront the differences between the upper and lower classes as she chooses between a future in reduced circumstances with Mellors and a life of comfort with her distant husband. Lady Chatterley’s Lover explores themes of class difference, social conflict, and intellectual versus physical stimulation. Its explicit sexual content and use of then-unprintable words made the novel the subject of a 1960 British obscenity trial, the non-guilty verdict of which resulted in greater freedom for publishing explicit content. Lady Chatterley’s Lover has been adapted for radio, film, theatre and television. HarperPerennialClassics brings great works of literature to life in digital format, upholding the highest standards in ebook production and celebrating reading in all its forms.

Secrets of Voodoo
Author: Milo Rigaud
Publisher: City Lights Books
Secrets of Voodoo traces the development of this complex religion (in Haiti and the Americas) from its sources in the brilliant civilizations of ancient Africa. This book presents a straightforward account of the gods or loas and their function, the symbols and signs, rituals, the ceremonial calendar of Voodoo, and the procedures for performing magical rites are given. "Voodoo," derived from words meaning "introspection" and "mystery," is a system of belief about the formation of the world and human destiny with clear correspondences in other world religions. Rigaud makes these connections and discloses the esoteric meaning underlying Voodoo's outward manifestations, which are often misinterpreted. Translated from the French by Robert B. Cross. Drawings and photographs by Odette Mennesson-Rigaud. Milo Rigaud was born in Port au Prince, Haiti, in 1903, where he spent the greater part of his life studying the Voodoo tradition. In Haiti he studied law, and in France ethnology, psychology, and theology. The involvement of Voodoo in the political struggle of Haitian blacks for independence was one of his main concerns.
