A troubled man travels to a mysterious town from his past after receiving a letter from his wife... who's been dead for years. And while our "hero" explores dark corridors and battles countless disturbing enemies, his journey offers more psychological horror than survival horror. Welcome to Silent Hill, where the monster is you. Silent Hill 2 doubles down on what made the first game so compelling: The feeling of being lost in a foggy, upside-down town as unsettling as it is familiar. Nearly two decades after first experiencing Silent Hill 2, writer and comedian Mike Drucker returns to its dark depths to explore how this bold video game delivers an experience that is tense, nightmarish, and anything but fun. With an in-depth and highly personal study of its tragic cast of characters, and a critical examination of developer Konami’s world design and uneven marketing strategy, Drucker examines how Silent Hill 2 forces its players to grapple with the fact that very real-world terrors of trauma, abuse, shame, and guilt are far more threatening than any pyramid-headed monster could ever be.

This delightful book contains the detailed memoirs of the Augustus Hare's adoptive mother. She began the endeavour as a memoir to her beloved husband and their common life at Alton. Due to ill health, she had to lay aside her work, but, after the death of her sister-in-law, took it up once again. Unfortunately, her increasing infirmity brought the end of her life ever nearer, and the task of completion was bestowed upon her adopted son, Augustus John Cuthbert Hare, who diligently noted down her dictations and reformed her notes and previous writings into this most fascinating and expertly composed book. A story of the interweaving lives of the people around her, this memoir is a marvellous story sure to appeal to the discerning reader, as well as those interested in the life and work of Augustus Hare. Augustus John Cuthbert Hare (1834 - 1903) was an English writer and raconteur. This text was originally published in 1874, and is proudly republished here complete with a new biography of the author.

Seeking peace and safety after a hard childhood, Leah marries Judah, a strong and gentle man, and for the first time in her life Leah believes she can rest easily. But the land is ruled by Antiochus IV, descended from one of Alexander the Great's generals, and when he issues a decree that all Jews are to conform to Syrian laws upon pain of death, devout Jews risk everything to follow the law of Moses. Judah's father resists the decree, igniting a war that will cost him his life. But before dying, he commands his son to pick up his sword and continue the fight--or bear responsibility for the obliteration of the land of Judah. Leah, who wants nothing but peace, struggles with her husband's decision--what kind of God would destroy the peace she has sought for so long? The miraculous story of the courageous Maccabees is told through the eyes of Judah's wife, who learns that love requires courage . . . and sacrifice.
