Lluís XIV vestit de rei: l'escapçament del cos místic by Ramon Faura Coll (Rovira i Virgili University Press)

Description: In3 the winter of 1685 a conflict arose within the Petite Académie concerning the inscriptions to accompany the paintings in the Grande Galerie (now called the Galerie des Glaces, or Hall of Mirrors) of the Palace of Versailles. These inscriptions, written by Charpentier and published in Mércure Galant, were disliked by both Racine and Boileau. The France of Louis XIV was the culmination of a process that first became visible at the end of the 15th century. However, it also inaugurated a new order that would manifest itself in the literalness of the symbol.

With her sharp steel and his transcendent vision, they must find a way through old hatreds and new tyrants.

The Shadow Conspiracy II by phyllis irene radford (BookViewCafe)

This book is an eBook, not a physical book.

Description: Format: Open, non-DRM file. Winners will be sent the URL of a webpage where they can download the eBook in PDF, ePub, Kindle, or prc format.

A Steampunk anthology of short stories and novelettes from the Age of Steam.

Shadow Conspiracy II revisits the shared Victorian world of transferable souls and intelligent machines. Judith Tarr’s irrepressible Emma Rigby prances through a new adventure with automata. Nancy Jane Moore brings us more missions for the mysterious warrior woman, Jane Freemantle. We have new characters to play with too. Chris Dolley brings to life a wonderful parody reminiscent of P.G. Wodehouse.

Then there are the historical characters that keep popping into our works of fiction. Amy Sterling Casil introduces us to insane artist Richard Dadd and makes us redefine madness. Irene Radford visits Dr. John McLaughlin and his wife Marguerite in the Oregon Country with some questions about when is no government too much government. Pati Nagle gives us some more insight into the life of mystical Marie LeVeau. And always, Ada King, Countess of Lovelace, hovers in the background along with her father, Romantic poet George Gordon, Lord Byron.

Come join us in the fun, the gadgets, the adventure, and the Romance of Steampunk in the second volume of Shadow Conspiracy.
