Powers of Darkness is an incredible literary discovery: In 1900, Icelandic publisher and writer Valdimar Ásmundsson set out to translate Bram Stoker's world-famous 1897 novel Dracula. Called Makt Myrkranna (literally, "Powers of Darkness"), this Icelandic edition included an original preface written by Stoker himself. Makt Myrkranna was published in Iceland in 1901 but remained undiscovered outside of the country until 1986, when Dracula scholarship was astonished by the discovery of Stoker's preface to the book. However, no one looked beyond the preface and deeper into Ásmundsson's story.In 2014, literary researcher Hans de Roos dove into the full text of Makt Myrkranna, only to discover that Ásmundsson hadn't merely translated Dracula but had penned an entirely new version of the story, with all new characters and a totally reworked plot. The resulting narrative is one that is shorter, punchier, more erotic, and perhaps even more suspenseful than Stoker's Dracula. Incredibly, Makt Myrkranna has never been translated or even read outside of Iceland until now.Powers of Darkness presents the first ever translation into English of Stoker and Ásmundsson's Makt Myrkranna. With a foreword by Dacre Stoker, Bram Stoker's great-grandnephew and bestselling author, and an afterword by Dracula scholar John Edgar Browning, Powers of Darkness will amaze and entertain legions of fans of Gothic literature, horror, and vampire fiction. **Contact Customer Service for Additional Material**Show more
"Frustrated that nothing is going your way and it feels like there's nothing you can do about it? You might be making excuses and not even realize it. I reject excuses and embrace solutions. When I'm done with you, you will too." During his many years as an entrepreneur, consultant, and star of Spike TV's hit show Bar Rescue, Jon Taffer has witnessed the destruction that results when people bullsh*t themselves. He argues that excuses are the root cause of nearly every business and personal problem. Fortunately, Jon knows how to fix your excuse habit for good. This book is almost as good as having Jon in your face on Bar Rescue, telling you the hard truths you've been avoiding. Whether you're an entrepreneur, manager, employee, or just trying to improve your personal life, you will benefit from Jon's insights and experiences. Don't Bullsh*t Yourself! is a brutally honest, no-nonsense guide that will help you kick those excuses to the curb. If you can stop bullsh*tting yourself and address your real issues, you will gain the power to turn your life around completely. Taffer breaks excuses down into six major categories, illustrating them with real-life examples such as Marcus Luttrell, the lone survivor of a SEAL team mission in Afghanistan, and Christine King, founder and CEO of Your Best Fit, who built a successful company despite being paralyzed in a horrific Jet Ski accident. These inspiring stories, combined with Taffer's own experiences, will give you the confidence to identify and face your own excuses head-on. As Taffer puts it, "If you own your failure and truly blame yourself, you will fight it. But if you blame an excuse or someone else, you have no reason to change. Own your failure and you will own your success...We're going to get there-together."Show more
