A dark little collection of poetry gleaned from the gnosis of vampires and songs of the muse. The Effect of Moonlight on Tombstones is Della Van Hise's first full-length book of poetry, spanning more than 25 years of her writing. If you enjoy dark fantasy and gothic grimoires, this is one book you don't want to miss!
This volume, the final of three, focuses on the inscribed stones and stone sculptures of North Wales crafted between 400 and 1150 AD. It provides fresh insights and new interpretations of over 150 monuments, many of which have been discovered since V. E. Nash-Williams's Early Christian Monuments of Wales was published in 1950. It includes an introductory discussion of the historical and archaeological context of the monuments, as well as essays on earlier research, geology, form and function, ornament and iconography, the language and lettering of the inscriptions, cultural connections, dating, and chronology. Numerous illustrations of the monuments accompany the critical analyses.
Sticks and Stones is based on fifty years of personal experience. Journal excerpts and poetry are used to enhance an understanding of the emotional turmoil of depression and suicidal ideation. The final coming together of positive approaches and insightful therapies is outlined along with exercises and suggestions for incorporating positive coping techniques. These are offered to help ease the anguish and supplement other therapies. Ms. Packard hopes that through education and the sharing of experiences, those individuals who require assistance and understanding can receive it without fear or trepidation, and that people who care for those living with depression will benefit from a greater comprehension.
