About This Book
RETURN TO WORLD OF WARFARE!
 
After an intense World of Warfare (WOW) bender, college kid and hardcore gamer Shesh Maccabee finds himself completely consumed by his dark character, slayer extraordinaire Moggrathka. To avoid a repeat incident—and the potentially fatal consequences of getting whacked online—Shesh enmeshes himself in the real world with the help of a part-time job, focusing on paying tuition instead of slaying orcs. Meanwhile his archenemy, student cop Rona, is never far behind, watching and waiting for Shesh to lapse back into character and go on a rampage.

Before you know it, he does just that, wreaking havoc across the WOW servers . . . and across campus. With Shesh’s RPG-enabling gamemaster friend Theo feeding the fires of madness, WOW execs devise a plan to extinguish Moggrathka’s virtual flame once and for all. The final showdown explodes at the world’s biggest WOW convention, where top gamers gather to fight for supremacy. It’s the ultimate battle between good, evil, and chaotic evil with the (virtual) lives of millions at stake!

    A History of Egypt
    From Earliest Times to the Present
    In A History of Egypt, Jason Thompson has written the first one-volume work to encompass all 5,000 years of Egyptian history, highlighting the surprisingly strong connections between the ancient land of the Pharaohs and the modern-day Arab nation.  No country's past can match Egypt's in antiquity, richness, and variety. However, it is rarely presented as a comprehensive panorama because scholars tend to divide it into distinct eras—prehistoric, pharaonic, Greco-Roman, Coptic, medieval Islamic, Ottoman, and modern—that are not often studied in relation to one another. In this daringly ambitious project, drawing on the most current scholarship as well as his own research, Thompson makes the case that few if any other countries have as many threads of continuity running through their entire historical experience. With its unprecedented scope and lively and readable style, A History of Egypt offers students, travelers, and general readers alike an engaging narrative of the extraordinarily long course of human history by the Nile.

    Edward William Lane

    Edward William Lane
    Edward William Lane (1801-1876) was Britain's most renowned scholar of the modern Middle East. Possessed of artistic, scholarly, and literary talent, Lane travelled to Egypt in the early nineteenth century, when it was first opened to Western travellers, where he participated both in the development of orientalist studies and in the nascent discipline of Egyptology. Returning to Britain, he published enormously influential works such as Manners and Customs of the Modern Egyptians (1836) and the monumental Arabic-English Lexicon (1863) - both continuously in print since their original publications - and a major translation of the Arabian Nights (1839). Lane's life was one of high ideals, goals, struggles against adversity, and great accomplishments intermixed with personal tragedy. Its story reveals many previously unknown aspects of Victorian and Egyptian life, and of the encounter between the two. Jason Thompson has uncovered an enormous amount of previously unconsidered primary source material for this new biography, which exhaustively and entertainingly covers his life and work.
