El Mago de Oz

by L. Frank Baum

Los mejores libros jamás escritos. «Es un buen mago. Si es un hombre o no, es cosa que ya no puedo decirte, porque nunca le he visto.» Arrancada de su hogar en Kansas por un huracán, la pequeña Dorothy aterriza en un mundo desconocido. Comienza así una travesía junto a su perro Toto en busca de la única persona capaz de devolverlos a casa: el Mago de Oz. Durante el viaje hasta Ciudad Esmeralda, donde el hombre vive, se enfrentarán a un sinfín de obstáculos y peligros, pero contarán también con inestimables aliados: un espantapájaros sin cerebro, un león sin coraje y un hombre de hojalata sin corazón. Más de un siglo después de su publicación, la magia de L. Frank Baum se despliega ante nosotros como si el tiempo apenas hubiera transcurrido. Con la iluminadora introducción del profesor y estudioso Jack Zipes y las ilustraciones que han acompañado a la novela desde sus inicios, esta edición rinde homenaje a una de las aventuras más entrañables de todos los tiempos. Ray Bradbury dijo...«L. Frank Baum ha llenado nuestro siglo, de principio a fin, de ingenuos gozos e insospechados deleites.»

Magonia

by Maria Dahvana Headley

<p>Maria Dahvana Headley's soaring YA debut is a fiercely intelligent, multilayered fantasy where Neil Gaiman's <i>Stardust</i> meets John Green's <i>The Fault in Our Stars</i> in a story about a girl caught between two worlds . . . two races . . . and two destinies. <p>Aza Ray Boyle is drowning in thin air. Since she was a baby, Aza has suffered from a mysterious lung disease that makes it ever harder for her to breathe, to speak--to live. So when Aza catches a glimpse of a ship in the sky, her family chalks it up to a cruel side effect of her medication. But Aza doesn't think this is a hallucination. She can hear someone on the ship calling her name. <p>Only her best friend, Jason, listens. Jason, who's always been there. Jason, for whom she might have more-than-friendly feelings. But before Aza can consider that thrilling idea, something goes terribly wrong. Aza is lost to our world--and found, by another. Magonia. Above the clouds, in a land of trading ships, Aza is not the weak and dying thing she was. In Magonia, she can breathe for the first time. Better, she has immense power--but as she navigates her new life, she discovers that war between Magonia and Earth is coming. <p>In Aza's hands lies fate of the whole of humanity--including the boy who loves her. Where do her loyalties lie?

The Magus

by John Fowles

Filled with shocks and chilling surprises, The Magus is a masterwork of contemporary literature. In it, a young Englishman, Nicholas Urfe, accepts a teaching position on a Greek island where his friendship with the owner of the islands most magnificent estate leads him into a nightmare. As reality and fantasy are deliberately confused by staged deaths, erotic encounters, and terrifying violence, Urfe becomes a desperate man fighting for his sanity and his life. A work rich with symbols, conundrums and labrinthine twists of event, The Magus is as thought-provoking as it is entertaining, a work that ranks with the best novels of modern times.

Mahabharata: Peace Part Two: The Book of Liberation

by Alex Wynne

<P>The Book of Liberation is perhaps the most enigmatic philosophical text from ancient India. Presented as the teachings of Bhishma as he lies dying on the battlefield, after the epic war between the Pándavas and Káuravas, it was composed by unknown authors in the last centuries BCE, during the early period of world-renunciation, when peripatetic sages meditated under trees and practiced austerities in forest groves, and wandering sophists debated in the towns and cities. <P>There has been no time like it before or since: such freedom of thought and expression is unparalleled in the history of the world. The freedom enjoyed by these ancient thinkers was not an end in itself. Above all this animated work is the record of philosophers seeking liberation (moksha) from a world they believed unsatisfactory. The speculation herein is but a means to an end, for its authors believed they could attain freedom from the world by knowing philosophical truths.

Mahabharata: Shalya

by Justin Meiland

<P>In one of the most famous passages in Maha·bhárata, Dur·yódhana, the heroic but flawed king of the Káuravas, meets his end when he is dishonorably defeated in battle by his arch-enemy, Bhima. Framing a fascinating account of the sacred sites along the river Sarásvati, the duel poignantly portrays the downfall of a once great hero in the face of a new order governed by Krishna, in which the warrior code is brushed aside in order to ensure the predestined triumph of the Pándavas. <P>Co-published by New York University Press and the JJC FoundationFor more on this title and other titles in the Clay Sanskrit series, please visit http://www.claysanskritlibrary.org

Mahabharata: Shalya

by Justin Meiland

<P>The Book of Shalya recounts in gory detail the final destruction of the Káurava army and the defeat of its leader, Dur·yódhana. In this first volume heroic duels and martial speeches abound as Shalya, the king of the Madras, is made general of the Káurava army, only to be slaughtered in his turn. <P> The Book of Shalya recounts in gory detail the final destruction of the Káurava army and the defeat of its leader, Duryódhana.

Mahabharata: The Forest

by William Johnson

<P>“Slender lady, I came out with you to gather fruit. I got a pain in my head and fell asleep in your lap. Then I saw a terrible darkness and a mighty person. If you know, then tell me - was it my dream? Or was what I saw real?” <P>So speaks Satyavat, newly rescued from the god of death by Savitri, his faithful wife, at the heart of one of the best loved stories in Indian literature. This, and other well known narratives, including a version of Rama's story, bring the Forest Book of the great Sanskrit epic, the Maha·bhárata, to its compelling conclusion. Woven into the main narrative of the Pandavas’ exile, these disparate episodes indicate the range and poetic power of the Maha·bhárata as a whole—a power that has the potential to speak to common human concerns across cultures and centuries. <P>“The Forest” is Book Three of the Maha·bhárata, “The Great Book of India.” This final quarter of the account of the Pándavas’ twelve-year exile in the forest contains four stirring stories that are among the best known in Indian literature. From a hero overcoming great odds, to a virtuous wife who rescues her family, and Indra tricking Karna, and Yudhi·shthira’s victory in the verbal contest with the tree spirit, these stories speak to common human concerns across cultures and centuries. <P>Co-published by New York University Press and the JJC FoundationFor more on this title and other titles in the Clay Sanskrit series, please visit http://www.claysanskritlibrary.org
