Novalis was the most significant representative of German romanticism at the end of the eighteenth century. A true contemporary of the approaching scientific age, he excelled not only as a poet, writer, religious thinker, and philosopher, but also as an enthusiastic student of science, mathematics, chemistry, physics, medicine, mineralogy and mining -- even working as an inspector of coal pits. The full revelation of Novalis's creative genius came as a result of the tragic death of his bride-to-be, Sophie von Kuhn. While visiting her grave, Novalis experienced a condition of spiritual enlightenment-the fruit of which can be found in these inspired verses. Hymns to the Night gives a poetic description of Novalis's spiritual awakening, while Spiritual Songs expresses the new relationship to the world, humanity, and Christianity that became accessible to his transmuted soul.

Ulysses is a 59-year-old widower who, since retiring, has been in the grip of loneliness. The former moving man is without direction or purpose. He can't even find solace in the company of his children: his daughter is dead, his son consumed by work. Mrs. Solenza is a 62-year-old former model. Once a magazine cover star, she now runs the family business: a cheese shop owned by her late mother. She, too, is alone. Two lives drift sadly by, inching ever closer to old age. Until, one day, they collide--and an emotional earthquake happens. A unique collaboration between veteran comics writer Zidrou and rising star Aimée de Jongh, Blossoms in Autumn is a masterful exploration of growing old and falling in love.

He's a hard-boiled private detective with no clients and a crazy landlady looking for his overdue rent. After a young gunman walks into his office, telling him to lay off of a case he's not involved with, Ray soon finds himself in the middle of murder, deceit, and deception. Brought in to investigate a fiendish killing, which leads to another, the shamus tries to sort out the sinister motive. Paintings with eerie depictions of the murders hang near the bodies, and the police believe it's the work of a madman. The atmosphere around Oyster City grows black with each passing day as Ray discovers his friends have similar supernatural dreams. The tarot cards of the Shadows foreshadow their evil presence as they continue bloody and violent rituals. While the citizens go about their daily lives, little do they understand that a dark period of history is about to return to a terrifying climax.
