Gargoyles have been feared and misunderstood for centuries, but now Caldecott Honor artist Dav Pilkey tells the real story of these gentle stone creatures come to life. Behind their cold, stone faces, gargoyles have warm, loving souls -- yet most people don't look deeply enough to notice. Angels can see the good inside them, though, and tonight the angels will sweep down to take their silent, stone friends on a magical journey, hand in hand.Caldecott Honor artist Dav Pilkey's lyrical tale of these gentle stone creatures come to life is a reminder that everyone -- from the grievers to the dreamers to the believers -- is worthy of love.

Gargoyles takes you on a journey into a mysterious world, through bestiaries and traveling menageries, past grotesques and chimeras, through medieval cities and guilds and into huge stone buildings. Gargoyles are an embodiment of form and function—serving a clear architectural purpose but, also, symbolically important. Whether warding off evil, frightening away fear or showcasing human foibles, when a gargoyle was placed on a building, people noticed. The book delves into historic models of arcane craftsmanship and architecture, considering the reasons for gargoyles coming into being and hearing the legends of the gargoyle, both mythic and modern. It, also, covers the emergence of stone creatures into popular culture. For modern magick users, Gargoyles explores the role of the gargoyle in magickal practice, including gargoyle use in elemental correspondences, stone magick, protection, warding, egregores, talismans, animal associations, ritual and spell work.

A vicar's lot is not an easy one, especially when your parish is St Gargoyle's, where anything might happen and almost always does.As if the arcane ways of parish existence were not trouble enough, local church life is made more colourful still by exploding thuribles, accident prone funeral directors, eighty-five year old temptresses lying in wait with the sherry for the vicar's visit, and the risk of permanent physical damage at Peedle Parva's midweek communions in January, with sub-zero temperatures and a regular attendance of two. And it doesn't help that the vicar's wife doesn't take him entirely seriously...The hapless incumbent of the Church of England's zaniest parish lets us into the secrets of his diary. For anyone involved in the running of a local church, it will all sound horribly familiar.

Since Rosa Parks refused to sit in the back of a bus, more and more Americans have been expressing their rights to freedom of speech and action. All too few announce their opinions on the everyday happenings taking place in their world. Allen R. Remaley is neither a journalist nor talking head commentator nor political pundit. He is an American who, over the years, has witnessed events, changing mores, and the earth on which he lives. His focus and thoughts on such things are brought to light in Reflections of a Disgruntled American Gargoyle. Among topics covered are Black Lives Matter; Racism Redux and the Oscars; cell phones and selfies; blood, sweat, and human evolution; Roe v. Wade and infanticide; Sharia law; Nellie Bly, columbine, and deinstitutionalization; a wall or Ellis Island, Southwest; and retirement, socialization, and happy hours. The chances are good that opinions expressed here mirror those of many Americans.

In this “charming” fantasy by the author of the Deryni novels, a gargoyle guardian and a Knight of Malta defend a Dublin cathedral and battle a demon (Booklist, starred review). The gargoyles of Dublin, Ireland, have a sacred duty to perform. Formerly God’s avenging angels, for centuries they have been entrusted with guarding the churches and cathedrals of the Irish capital while avoiding all contact with human beings. But once a month these loyal stone sentries must leave their posts to attend a conclave of their kind, and it is during one such absence that a sacrilege occurs. The guardian of St. Patrick’s Cathedral, the gargoyle Padraig, called “Paddy,” has returned to find violence and vandalism committed at his church and two silver artifacts stolen. Taking to Dublin’s night streets in search of a culprit, Paddy inadvertently reveals himself to an aged chauffeur in an ancient Rolls Royce, thereby dooming Francis Templeton to an impending premature death. But the grim reaper will have to wait, because old man Templeton is a member of the Knights of Malta, a secret order of defenders of the faith dating back to the Crusades, and as such is an ideal partner for the onetime angel in his quest for justice and revenge. Their hunt is about to take some sinister turns, however, leading the gargoyle and the knight to Clontarf Castle, where a major demon, an emissary of Satan, is preparing to make his reentrance into the world. An acclaimed and much beloved fantasist best known for her popular Adept and Knights Templar series and her chronicles of the magical Deryni, Katherine Kurtz now displays another side of her extraordinary talent and succeeds magnificently. St. Patrick’s Gargoyle is a delightful feast of the imagination, rich in Celtic lore and religious arcana, and brimming with wit and heart, wonder and magic.

You can learn a lot about yourself if you pay careful attention for one full year. Here are 365 daily meditations that, through their brutal confessionalism, will unearth the stoic in you. 'God Bless the Broken Bones won’t tickle your ears with pleasant words. Instead what you’ll find is a year of one man’s seemingly uncensored thoughts, fears, frustrations, longings, gratitude, and self-exhortations. Raw yet eloquent, William Ferraiolo’s musings reveal the daily challenges to living a life of equanimity and honor, and why there’s no worthier goal. At times this book might offend you. It will certainly challenge you. And if you’re willing, it might change you. I recommend you see for yourself.' Seth J.
