Uddrag fra beskrivelsen af bogen: Uddrag fra beskrivelsen af bogen: "It was an age of mighty heroes, misunderstood monsters, and complex villains. With the publication of Fantastic Four No. 1 in November 1961, comics giant Marvel inaugurated a transformative era in pop culture. Through the next two decades, the iconic Hulk, Spider-Man, Iron Man, and the X-Men leapt, darted, and towered through its pages. Captain America was resurrected from his 1940s deep-freeze and the Avengers became the World’s Greatest Super Heroes. Daredevil, Doctor Strange, and dozens more were added to the pantheon, each with their own rogues’ gallery of malevolent counterparts. Nearly 60 years later, these thrilling characters from the 1960s and ’70s are more popular than ever, fighting the good fight in comics, toy aisles, and blockbuster movies around the world."

Brian Staunberg Ravkammeret
Brian Staunberg Ravkammeret

Den Pulitzer-vindende journalist John Newman har modtaget et brev fra en professor, som leder ham på sporet af skatten Ravkammeret, der har været forsvundet siden Anden Verdenskrig. Professoren findes imidlertid myrdet, og John Newman får snart på fornemmelsen, at dette er historien om mere end bare en forsvundet naziskat. Hans søgen efter sandheden bringer ham til både Tyskland, Cypern og Israel, hvor han blandt andet samler spor hos en tidligere tysk ubådskaptajn, en lokal tosse og en journalists moster. Han bliver jagtet af både nazister og jøder, som ikke skyr nogen midler for at beskytte deres hemmeligheder. Men hvad er det for et mysterium, Newman er blevet involveret i, og slipper han nogensinde ud af det igen?       Uddrag af bogen
Han havde insisteret på, at de skulle tage den store model. Jaguarens 500 hestekræfter pressede bilen frem. Foran dem trak to biler ud for at spærre vejen for dem. ”Du kan ikke nå at komme forbi dem,” udbrød Mila. Newman kørte bilen hen over kantstenen. Halvt oppe på plænen ved siden af vejen og halvt på vejen håbede han at kunne klemme bilen forbi. Der var ikke meget plads. Kom han for langt til venstre, ville de ramme træerne, og kom han for langt til højre, ville de støde ind i bilerne. Jo tættere de kom på bilerne, des mere sikker blev han på, at der ikke var nok plads. Men det var deres eneste chance.   Om forfatteren
Brian Staunberg har læst de store spændingsforfattere, så længe han kan huske. Og da et spændende plot blev ved med at rumstere i baghovedet, endte det med at blive til en bog, som han håber kan give glæde til andre. Ravkammeret er hans debut.

Ann Douglas The Dharma Bums

A witty, moving philosophical novel, Jack Kerouac's The Dharma Bums is a journey of self-discovery through the lens of Zen Buddhist thought. This Penguin Modern Classics edition includes an introduction by Ann Douglas.Following the explosive energy of On the Road, the book that put the Beat Genration on the literary map - and Jack Kerouac on the bestseller list - comes The Dharma Bums, in which Kerouac charts the spiritual quest of a group of friends in search of Dharma, or Truth. Ray Smith and his friend Japhy, along with Morley the yodeller, head off into the high Sierras to seek the lesson of solitude and experience the Zen way of life. But in wildly Bohemian San Francisco, with its poetry jam sessions, marathon drinking bouts and experiments in 'yabyum', they find the ascetic route distinctly hard to follow.Jack Kerouac (1922-69) was an American novelist, poet, artist and part of the Beat Generation. His first published novel, The Town and the City, appeared in 1950, but it was On the Road, published in 1957, that made Kerouac famous. Publication of his many other books followed, among them The Subterraneans, Big Sur, and The Dharma Bums.

Billy Moore A Prayer Before Dawn
Billy Moore A Prayer Before Dawn

Now a major motion picture
The true story of one man's struggle to survive Muay Thai fights, drugs, and the notorious "Bangkok Hilton" prison in Thailand.
The first time Billy Moore walked into his cell packed with seventy prisoners, the floor resembled a mass grave, with intertwined arms and legs, and the smell of human feces was so strong he almost vomited. That night, he slept next to a dead man. It wouldn't be the last time. Behind the walls of Klong Prem "Bangkok Hilton" prison, life has no value. Overcrowded cells are a breeding ground for HIV, TB, dengue fever, and hepatitis, and the conditions are putrid and brutal. In an environment where drugs, murder, rape, and corruption run rampant, Moore fights to stay afloat above madness and his inner demons. A few years before, Moore had traveled to Thailand to escape a life of heroin addiction and alcoholism in England. In an attempt to stay straight, he became a professional Muay Thai boxer, worked as an extra in Rambo alongside Sylvester Stallone, and even fell in love. However, in the poverty-stricken back streets of Chiang Mai, Moore's life quickly descended back into chaos when he relapsed after trying ya ba, the deadly crack cocaine of Southeast Asia. Moore was imprisoned first in Chiang Mai Central Prison and later in Klong Prem prison, a hellhole of filth and horror that very few will ever experience and none would want to see again. As a "farang" (foreigner), Moore struggles to survive the prison's atrocities by making strategic friends, fighting in the prison's Muay Thai boxing team, and even converting to Islam and praying five times a day. However, what requires more stamina and grit than any of his boxing matches is not just dealing with dangerous Thai criminals that lurk behind prison walls, but also resisting his addictions in an environment where drugs run plenty and wrestling with guilt. A Prayer Before Dawn is no ordinary prison memoir; it's the story of one man's survival amid inhumane circumstances and, most importantly, his redemption in the most unlikely of places.
