" Christopher Miller a réussi l'impossible : il a écrit le livre le plus drôle de l'année, peut-être de la décennie ! " S.F Gate" Christopher Miller a réussi l'impossible : il a écrit le livre le plus drôle de l'année, peut-être de la décennie ! "SFGate Écrivain génial ou navrant tâcheron ? Le moins qu'on puisse dire, c'est que Phoebus K. Dank, auteur prolixe de science-fiction à l'existence calamiteuse, inventeur pathologique et obsédé sexuel, n'a jamais fait l'unanimité. Pour preuve, ce roman-encyclopédie que lui consacrent William Boswell et Owen Hirt, critiques partiaux et frères ennemis. Le premier est un spécialiste de l'oeuvre de Dank, mais aussi son ami et son plus grand admirateur ; le second, accessoirement suspecté d'avoir assassiné Dank, a une opinion exécrable de l'écrivain. Dans leur guide raisonné des écrits - et manies - de Dank, les deux hommes s'affrontent, chacun livrant sa vision de l'oeuvre et sa version des faits, entre aveuglement éperdu et mépris souverain. Bien vite, cependant, les apparences vont se révéler trompeuses et le lecteur n'aura d'autre choix que de jouer les détectives pour tenter de percer le secret de la mort de Dank - et de sa vie.
Tour à tour faux guide consacré à un auteur imaginaire, véritable hommage à la littérature de genre - et à Philip K. Dick -, critique du milieu littéraire et enquête policière,
L'Univers de carton est un jeu de piste hilarant et fascinant, dans la mythique lignée de
Feu pâle de Nabokov.

?Henrik Nordmark is a bald, middle-aged security guard with few friends and no romantic possibilities. Tired of being the weed sprouting out of the wallflower, generic in his generality, Henrik has an epiphany. He will have one moment of inimitable distinction, even if it kills him.
Henrik first sets out to experience the throes of addiction, then to become virtuous, and barring this to be known as a public menace. Inevitably he resolves to find true love and fails miserably. Along his journey, Henrik inadvertently becomes the target of a team of elderly assassins - one blind, one deaf, and the other mute.
Henrik's counterpart is Roland, a young office worker who, thinking he's won the lottery, dumps his girlfriend and casts aside his friends. He addresses an email to the company where he works: "Dear Heartless Bastards ?" Soon Roland's entire world - the fictional one he'd built up in his mind - comes crashing down to painful reality.
Henrik's and Roland's lives intertwine with that of a young couple, the aptly named Bonnie and Clyde, two formerly star-crossed lovers who have grown to loathe each other. Bonnie and Clyde now have homicidal intent in their hearts, but do they have the cleverness or proficiency to pull off their respective crimes?
The characters' lives all come together in a crescendo in which Henrik realizes his true purpose on earth.
This Companion offers a state-of-the-art survey of the work of John Stuart Mill - one which covers the historical influences on Mill, his theoretical, moral and social philosophy, as well as his relation to contemporary movements. Its contributors include both senior scholars with established expertise in Mill's thought and new emerging interpreters. Each essay acts as a "go-to" resource for those seeking to understand an aspect of Mill's thought or to familiarise themselves with the contours of a debate within the scholarship. The Companion is a key reference on Mill's theory of liberty and utilitarianism, but also provides a valuable resource on lesser-known aspects of his work, including his epistemology, metaphysics, and philosophy of language. The volume is divided into six sections. Part I covers Mill's life, his immediate posthumous reputation, and his own telling of his life-story. Part II brings together an accessible and comprehensive summary of the various influences on Mill's thought. Part III offers an account of the foundations of Mill's philosophy and his thought on key philosophic topics. Parts IV and V tackle issues from Mill's moral and social philosophy. Part VI concludes with a treatment of the broader aspects of Mill's thought, tracing his relation to major movements in philosophy.

There have been dramatic increases in the financial, emotional, and psychological investment in pets over the past four decades. The increasing importance of animal companions in people's lives has resulted in growing emphasis on the human-animal bond within academic literature. This book introduces practicing and emerging professionals to vital subject matter concerning this growing specialty area by providing an essential framework and information through which to consider the unique contextual backdrop of the human-animal bond. Such contexts include a wide array of themes including: issues of attachment and loss, success and frustration with making and sustaining connections, world views regarding animal ethics, familial history of neglect or abuse, and cultural dynamics that speak to the order of things between mankind and nature. Adopting a contextual stance will aid mental health professionals in appreciating why and how this connection has become a significant part of everyday life for many. As with any other important clinical dynamic, training and preparation are needed to gain competence for professional practice and research. To this end, an ensemble of international experts across the fields of psychology and mental health explore topics that will help both new and established clinicians increase and understanding of the various ways the human-animal bond manifests itself. Perspectives from beyond the scope of psychology and mental health such as anthropology, philosophy, literature, religion, and history are included to provide a sampling of the significant contexts in which the human-animal bond is established. What brings these divergent topics together in a meaningful way is their relevance and centrality to the contextual bonds that underlie the human-animal connection. This text will be a valuable resource that provides opportunities to deepen one's expertise in understanding the psychology of the human-animal bond.

Now completely revised and expanded, this second edition not only includes updated chapters detailing treatment of the most common and troublesome sites for stress fractures, but also more recent research regarding risk factors for the development of stress fractures. As in the original edition, general principles of evaluation, healing considerations and management strategies are discussed in three thematic sections. However, unlike the previous text, this edition will focus on a holistic approach to the treatment of these increasingly common injuries with new chapters on nutritional optimization of athletes at risk for stress fractures, systemic treatment strategies for healing including vitamin D supplementation and parathyroid hormone stimulation, and surgical and injectable biologic treatment modalities for enhanced bone healing. This edition will also include guidelines for on-the-field and training room management of stress fractures for team physicians. This revision is timely, given the increasing rate and severity of bony stress injuries encountered in elite and professional athletes related to single-sport specialization and the increased popularity of endurance sports such as cross-fit, obstacle course racing, and ultramarathon competitions. It will be an ideal resource for sports medicine practitioners including orthopedic surgeons, primary care sports medicine specialists, athletic trainers, and physical therapists.

This new book is the first to make logical and important connections between trapping and foraging ecology. It develops and describes-both verbally and mathematically--the underlying principles that determine and define trap-organism interactions. More important, it goes on to explain and illustrate how these principles and relationships can be used to estimate absolute population densities in the landscape and to address an array of important problems relating to the use of trapping for detection, population estimation, and suppression in both research and applied contexts. The breakthrough nature of subject matter described has broad fundamental and applied implications for research for addressing important real-world problems in agriculture, ecology, public health and conservation biology. Monitoring traps baited with potent attractants of animals like insects have long played a critical role in revealing what pests are present and when they are active. However, pest managers have been laboring without the tools necessary for quick and inexpensive determination of absolute pest density, which is the cornerstone of pest management decisions. This book spans the gamut from highly theoretical and fundamental research to very practical applications that will be widely useful across all of agriculture.
