Book excerpt: We have proven inadequate and stand uncomprehending under the endless sky, spying distant, dark universes that we might one day be able to reach.But for now even our own world remains a mystery to us, and we can only speculate about the origins of our existence.Perhaps the birth of our world was similar to that of the Created World, and the past and future fate of the two will be alike.Who knows?The epic fantasy trilogy is all about creation and the formation of life. The Avatars (as God-endowed beings), playing the Creators, created a world far away in the universe. Avatars brought to life two Ancient Races, magicians and demons. Lord of the Avatars, he empowered the Magi with the Awakening Forces and the Demons with the Dark Forces. The Creators have always been watching the creatures of The Created World. Using fantasy elements, you couldn't miss the story: wizards, demons, warriors, spells, and finally romance.The author recommended the epic fantasy book to teenagers, young adults, and the older audience also. He recommended it to anyone curious, have a good imagination and for the audience who is open about a possible variation in how life develops.The prediction of the epic fantasy trilogy:"When a New World emerges,Cast more than once into perdition by Evil,The Avatars will give new life to the earth,So that a better world may be created,And Darkness shall not prevail forever."

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Have you ever been a fan of a show that was canceled abruptly or that killed off a beloved character unexpectedly? Or perhaps it was rebooted after a long absence and now you’re worried it won’t be as good as the original? Anyone who has ever followed entertainment closely knows firsthand that such transitions can be jarring. Indeed, for truly loyal fans, the loss can feel very real—even throwing their own identity into question. Examining how fans respond to and cope with transitions, endings, or resurrections in everything from band breakups (R.E.M.) to show cancellations (Hannibal) to closing down popular amusement park rides, this collection brings together an eclectic mix of scholars to analyze the various ways fans respond to change. Essays explore practices such as fan discussion and creating alternative fan fictions, as well as cases where fans abandon their objects of interest completely and move on to new ones. Shedding light on how fans react, both individually and as a community, the contributors also trace the commonalities and differences present in fandoms across a range of media, and they pay close attention to the ways fandom operates across paratexts and transmedia forms including films, comics, and television. This fascinating approach promises to make an important contribution to the fields of fan, media, and cultural studies, and should appeal widely to students, scholars, and anyone else with a genuine interest in understanding why these transitions can have such a deep impact on fans’ lives.

This book was released on 2018-12-28 with total page 712 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Virtual and augmented reality raise significant questions for law and policy. When should virtual world activities or augmented reality images count as protected First Amendment ‘speech’, and when are they instead a nuisance or trespass? When does copying them infringe intellectual property laws? When should a person (or computer) face legal consequences for allegedly harmful virtual acts? The Research Handbook on the Law of Virtual and Augmented Reality addresses these questions and others, drawing upon free speech doctrine, criminal law, issues of data protection and privacy, legal rights for increasingly intelligent avatars, and issues of jurisdiction within virtual and augmented reality worlds.

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: The edited volume aims to present a critical analysis of the current state of research on religion and belief systems in the realm of the ‘Digital Social’. The rapid expansion and democratization of digital technologies in conjunction with the significant shifts taking place within the practices of religion and belief through digital technology demand a critical examination across the social sciences and humanities. These changes call for an overview of not only our current methodological tool box but also the epistemological and ethical considerations that researchers must contend with. The proposed volume provides a critical framework that recognizes that the social, and therefore the religious, cannot be fully understood without recognizing how the digital world actively constitutes notions such as identity, social networks, embodiment, and social institutions. While some specific methods will be discussed, the volume’s emphasis remains on the critical epistemological and logistical considerations that are needed when undertaking this form of research.
