Download or read book Cowboy Junkies XX written by and published by Whale & Star. This book was released on 2006 with total page 156 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Distributed by the University of Nebraska Press for Whale and Star Press For the Cowboy Junkies it all begins with a song: an acoustic guitar and a voice. But each song comes to each album with its own history, along its own strange path. Some are born and realized in a matter of minutes; others take years to finally find a place. Some pop out as perfect little gems; others mutate and transform themselves, stealing and pillaging from the unformed. XX celebrates the twentieth anniversary of the Cowboy Junkies, one of the most distinctive and influential rock bands in recent years. Starting with the seminal album The Trinity Session, the Canadian band's signature sound, based on traditional blues and post-punk rock, has garnered much critical acclaim and an uncommonly devoted international following. The Cowboy Junkies are guitarist and lyricist Michael Timmins, bassist Alan Anton, and Timmins's siblings Margo (lead vocals) and Peter (drums). This book, the first to focus on the Cowboy Junkies, offers an intimate look at the band through their own photographs and the poetic lyrics of Michael Timmins, who chose the selections. Each lyric is accompanied by a resonant illustration created by renowned artist Enrique Martínez Celaya, who is a friend and fan of the band.

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: The fate of Wessex lies in the hands of Merlin, the current manifestation of the 10,000-year-old Avebury Stones dynasty of Wessex venefici. But time races against him. He has only seven years left to live; seven scant years in which he must train his successor in the enchantments. To be veneficus is to be wizard, sorcerer, alchemist, hermit and wax-pale ghost. Twilight, formerly the village boy Will Timms, is imbued with the aura of the one chosen to be taught by the mighty Merlin and eventually take his place. However, Wessex has fallen into peril, consumed by conflict and death. The Northern King, Penda, and his wolf woman veneficus, Elelendise, have invaded the land in pursuit of conquest and power. Elelendise covets Merlin's title above all else and she will stop at nothing to obtain it... But Penda and Elelendise are not the only threats. Forces even darker still are gathering against Merlin and Twilight as the god of the Cowering Dead strives for dominion in an immortal struggle entwined with the fate of Wessex. Author Chris Page lives in Wiltshire (Wessex), England with his wife and two children. The Dark Ages history of the region known as Wessex, steeped in the life and culture of the poetic Celtic tribes, form a foundation of facts, people and sites on which Chris constructs his world of magic and fantasy. Veneficus - Stones of the Chosen is the first book of The Wessex Progressions. The story continues in Gemini Thunder.
