Grettir's saga( Book )

7 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 143 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A sweeping epic of the Viking Age, Grettir's Saga follows the life of the outlaw Grettir the Strong as he battles against sorcery, bad luck, and the vengefulness of his enemies. Feared by many, Grettir is a warrior and also a poet and a lover. Unable to resolve the dispute that has outlawed him, he lives outside the bounds of family life and he roams the countryside, ridding Iceland and Norway of berserker warriors, trolls, and the walking dead. The saga presents a poignant story of medieval Icelandic society, combining details of everyday legal disputes with folklore and legend. With its scathing humor, explicit verses, and fantastic monsters, Grettir's Saga is among the most famous and widely read of Iceland's epics. In addition to Jesse Byock's lively new translation, this edition includes extensive maps, genealogies, illustrations, a chronology and glossary, as well as helpful notes, an up-to-date bibliography, and thorough introduction exploring the saga in the context of other works of Icelandic and medieval literature. - Publisher

Chaos merchants by Michael Douglas Carlin( )

1 edition published in 2016 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Tupac Shakur was murdered in September of 1996 at the age of 25. His killers were never brought to justice and there was little or no investigation. Six months later Biggie Smalls is killed in almost the same fashion with an experience modification. Armor piercing ammunition was used along with a professional shooter. The similarities are striking. Five barricades pin the vehicle and the shooter's vehicle completes the sixth barricade leaving the vehicle nowhere to go. This was a professional hit that led into the halls of the LAPD. Russell Poole, the original investigator of the Wallace murder, would lose his career over these investigations as the brass would push him out of the department. Russell, found out what Snoop Dogg said about Suge Knight being behind the murder of Tupac and he was the one that put that information out publicly. But as he continued to investigate he would find that so many clues pointed toward Death Row Records and there were people inside the record label that were trying to kill Suge Knight and they still are trying to kill him. What Russell uncovered would cost him his life. Russell was silenced to derail the truth. But the truth is seeping up all around us and cannot be stopped. Chaos Merchants is the reason Russell Poole was killed

Painting place : the life and work of David B. Milne by David P Silcox( )

1 edition published in 2000 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"David P. Silcox's eagerly awaited biography of David B. Milne (1882-1953) tells the remarkable story of one of Canada's great artists and his work. This book has been very much a labour of love by Silcox, a love for the work of the artist and an appreciation of his ideas. Lavishly illustrated and based on many years of research, Painting Place provides a perceptive analysis of Milne's work, both the paintings and the artist's voluminous and lively writings. The book balances words and pictures in a way that would surely have delighted its subject as it will its readers." "Milne's unique and striking images set him on a path of his own early in his life. He never sought fame or commercial success, but in time curators sought him out, critics hailed his work, and knowledgeable collectors bought his paintings and prints. Most important of all, he was a painter's painter, acknowledged by other artists as an innovator of supreme ability, an uncompromising master of technique, and a creator of memorable paintings."--Jacket
