Strange and Weird Terror
Ghosts! Werewolves! Vampires! Zombies! These were the recurring themes featured in horror comics of the 1950s, when crime and horror comics were the dominant titles appearing on the newsstands, There was one Canadian comic book publisher who specialized in original horror comic magazines, but these books have become largely forgotten and scarce, whereas the more popular and well-known publishers such as EC, have had their famous titles republished time and again in high-quality formats. The Canadian publisher, Superior, has not been so fortunate. Now, for the first time, we present a collection of some of the best stories from Superior. Are these the greatest horror comics of all time? Hardly. However, they are a part of history and should be enjoyed for what they are: some of the oddest horror stories ever told in comic book form!

The Poetry of Mother's Day

The Poetry of Mother's Day
This volume of poetry brings together poems throughout history with very special women. The relationship with our Mother is one of the most powerful many of us will ever feel. It rivals those with our children and partners in a way that both permeates and challenges how and on what terms we live our lives. A woman giving birth is not only bringing life into the World, she is doing so, usually, at great pain to herself. The fact that this is transformed within minutes of birth to a deep, unconditional love is truly beautiful. Whatever the future brings for Mother or child that bond will hold. The first attempts at language by babies is usually 'muh' or 'ma' - a universal sound for Mother. In every race, culture and domain Mothers are seen as both a symbol and living emblem of love and nurture, of comfort and safety. As we grow older that relationship changes but on a fundamental level remains giving, unconditional and unequivocal. As we become parents ourselves that circle of experience completes a full turn. For poets through time this unique and fulfilling relationship has enabled some of the greatest verse to be written by some of our most famed poets from Wordsworth to Whitman to Tennyson and many, many others. We hope this experience of listening to these carefully chosen words will help you reflect and further enjoy the experience that a Mother's love has brought to your life. Their devotion to ours ensures ours to theirs. Whilst we celebrate Mother's Day once a year, every day is their day. Many of these poems are also available on our audiobook version at iTunes, Amazon and other digital stores.
