Jack's Wagers (A Jack O' Lantern Tale): A Jack O' Lantern Tale for Halloween & Samhain
Jack's Wagers (A Jack O' Lantern Tale): A Jack O' Lantern Tale for Halloween & Samhain
Seanchai Library Special EditionRead and listen this tale loosely based on the Celtic legend of Jack O' Lantern and Samhain feast, from the voice of a 'Seanchai', a traditional Irish storyteller, Shandon Loring, chief bard at the Seanchai Library ( http://bit.ly/Seanchai ).BlurbAccording to an ancient Celtic legend it is said that on the night of Samhain (The Celtic New Year's Eve), a night that is outside the cycle of time because it belongs neither to the Old Year that has just ended nor the New Year that has not yet begun, it may be possible to discern, in the mists that separate the world of the living from that of the spirits, a man who wanders in search of the road to Paradise. He holds his lantern in a hollowed out pumpkin, and inside it there would be a burning firebrand from the embers of hell. That man is Jack!Jack O’ Lantern. But who was Jack?The only ordinary man who has a feast day dedicated to him that by now is celebrated the world over. Why do we celebrate him on Halloween night? Hardly anyone knows his story; “To hell with them!” Jack would say.More from Kentauronhttp://smarturl.it/Kentauron (this is a short url for a search on Amazon website )

JACK An Ancient Celtic Tradition Version 2.0: The Jack O' Lantern Origins Story
JACK An Ancient Celtic Tradition Version 2.0: The Jack O' Lantern Origins Story
An exciting scary story about how the jack o'lantern came to be... and the interesting character behind it! Misunderstood children often survive bullying to become heroes who watch after us all!The story of JACK describes the Celtic personality and gives comfort to people from a matriarchal tradition as they live within a patriarchal-style culture that has come to dominate and conquer the earth in the recent few millennia. The rogue troublemaker, seemingly without discipline or law has a tough, windy, winding road in a male-dominated society. JACK is forever getting into trouble, but is a good hearted and gentle soul, and more often than not- truly saves the day. JACK has become the archetype for the everyperson hero in the stories of American film and literature, and is evident in the Celtic traditions of European, British, and American peoples.The Story of JACK comes from a harsher time, when consequences were severe for children out at night. Hungry animals hunting in the central square, starving handicapped people, diseased people, and all manner of the disenfranchised and uncared-for individuals threatened a small town lacking the resources to help those in need: all this presented a clear and present danger to any children out after dark. All holiday traditions are adaptati...

Jack's weddenschappen: Een Keltische sage dat geïnspireerd is op de legende van Jack O' Lantern en het Keltische feest Samhain en Halloween (Dutch Edition)
Een oude Keltische legende vertelt dat er tijdens de nacht van Samhain (het Keltische Nieuwjaar), die toch niet alledaags is, omdat hij niet behoort tot het afgelopen jaar dat net voorbij is en evenmin tot het nieuwe jaar dat nog moet beginnen, men in de nevelen die de wereld van de levenden scheiden van die van de geesten, een man kan ontwaren die ronddwaalt op zoek naar de weg van het paradijs. Hij draagt een lantaarn die bestaat uit een uitgekerfde pompoen waarin zich een brandend kooltje van het vuur van de hel zou bevinden.Die man, dat is Jack! Jack O’ LanternMaar wie was Jack?De enige gewone man aan wie men een feest heeft gewijd dat men inmiddels overal ter wereld viert.Waarom vieren we hem tijdens de nacht van Halloween (dat de tradities en de rituelen van het oude feest van Samhain weer tot leven laat komen)? Bijna niemand kent zijn verhaal: “Vervloekt zijn ze!”, zou Jack zeggen.Andere boeken van Kentauronhttp://smarturl.it/Kentauron

The Lantern's Ember
A bold and ghostly stand-alone from New York Times bestselling author Colleen Houck, with all the moodiness of Sleepy Hollow and all the romance her fans love. Welcome to a world where nightmarish creatures reign supreme.Five hundred years ago, Jack made a deal with the devil. It's difficult for him to remember much about his mortal days. So he focuses on fulfilling his sentence as a Lantern--one of the watchmen who guard the portals to the Otherworld, a realm crawling with every nightmarish creature imaginable. Jack has spent centuries jumping from town to town, ensuring that nary a mortal--or not-so-mortal--soul slips past him. That is, until he meets beautiful Ember O'Dare. Seventeen, stubborn, and a natural-born witch, Ember feels a strong pull to the Otherworld. Undeterred by Jack's warnings, she crosses into the forbidden plane with the help of a mysterious and debonair vampire--and the chase through a dazzling, dangerous world is on. Jack must do everything in his power to get Ember back where she belongs before both the earthly and unearthly worlds descend into chaos.Colleen Houck, the New York Times bestselling author of the Tigers Curse series and Reawakened series, breathes new life into classic folklore in this wild, twisting adventure propelled by the spirit of Hallo...

Owen and Bethany have sworn off jumping into books for good. But they didn't make any promises about not jumping through strange portals that lead to a comic book world. Jupiter City was once filled with brightly costumed superheroes and villains, but nowadays, there's nothing left but the Dark. Even the villains are terrified of the Dark's shadows, and most of the heroes have either disappeared or been lost to mind control. The one hero who might have stopped all of this, Doc Twilight, has been imprisoned by the Dark. But who is Doc Twilight really? And how can Bethany and Owen defeat the Dark without superpowers of their own? They'll definitely need the help of some old friends and new allies to bring the light back to Jupiter City, and find out the truth behind the Dark. It all comes back to Bethany's own secret origins. What really happened when her fictional father disappeared years ago? Who is Nobody, and why is he writing these Story Thieves books? And what kind of supervillain name is The Rotten Banana?
