Looking for that last minute gift? Don’t panic – there’s still time to pick up a great deal on ebooks from Ichabod Press.
The Zen of Heraclitus: A quote book of presocratic philosophy is available from Amazon Kindle and as an epub from Kobo for only 99c!
The Zen of Heraclitus presents the reader with 60 thought provoking quotes from twelve of the earliest writers in the Western philosophic tradition. As Faulkner explains in the introduction, the parallels between the ‘simple, transcendental wisdom’ of these ancient thinkers and the ‘personal enlightenment emphasized in the Buddhist tradition’ are striking; The Zen of Heraclitus acts as as concise introduction to both.
Beginning with an overview of the Presocratic philosophers, placing them in their historical context, as well as a brief biography of Heraclitus of Ephesus and an introduction to his work, the book divides its carefully selected and translated quotes into topics covering: The Stuff of the Universes, The Hidden Truth, Wisdom, and The Divine.
Perfect for students of history, philosophy or Buddhism, or those simply curious of mind, The Zen of Heraclitus is intended as an easy inroad to the wisdom of the ancient world. Presenting each quote on its own page, free of notes or interpretation, the author allows the reader to focus on the words and find their own truth within.
Vestigial Tales: Short stories in 140-odd characters is the debut publication from Legends, the fiction imprint of Ichabod Press and you can get a copy for just $1.99 on Amazon.
From the crew of a spaceship burning up upon re-entry to one woman’s sad musings over a lonely dead fish, quick-fire pick-up lines that don’t quite have the desired effect or crazed, murderous rants by an accountant pushed the edge, Vestigial Tales presents the reader with unforgettable characters and all manner of strange and fantastical worlds explored through 106 short stories each just 140 characters in length.
Inspired by the writings on his Twitter account, Liam Aidan’s distilled stories cast shadows of much larger worlds that don’t actually exist, the worlds the tales elude to but never fully describe, igniting the reader’s imagination in the process. From wry observational commentary to outright absurdity, Aidan switches between genres and styles ensuring Vestigial Tales contains something to delight everyone.
With original illustrations by Maria Astakhova, and a first line index of all the stories included at the back, Vestigial Tales is a must-have for all fans of flash and micro fiction and makes the perfect gift this Christmas!
