First published in 1933, this novel by award-winning author James Hilton tells the story of Hugh Conway, a veteran member of the British diplomatic service who finds inner peace, love, and a sense of purpose in Shangri-La, an Eden-like valley high in the Himalayas in Tibet. Said to have been inspired by reading the National Geographic Magazine articles of a botanist and ethnologist who explored the southwestern Chinese provinces and Tibetan borderlands, the name “Shangri-La” has become a by-word for a mythical utopia, a permanently happy land, isolated from the world, and one that captivated the world’s imagination—from Roosevelt naming his Maryland presidential retreat “Shangri-La” to the Zhongdian mountain region of Southwest China being renamed Shangri-La (Xianggelila). The novel won James Hilton the Hawthornden Prize in 1934 and was also immortalized in a movie version in 1937 by influential director Frank Capra. “Hilton’s premise strikes a deep chord in today’s ‘everything is relative’ society. His utopia retains all its charm and, in his creation of Shangri-La, he added something permanently to the language”—Guardian “Lost Horizon introduced the world to a Tibetan paradise where people live extraordinarily long lives of peace, harmony and wisdom. Expertly plotted and deftly written, Hilton’s book suggests mysteries without spelling them out - and leaves us wanting more”—New York Times “James Hilton invented the name Shangri-La for a paradise on earth in a book that captured the imagination of a public dealing with financial hardships and the threat of Nazism”—Observer “The important thing to note about this very fine novel—the tale of an adventure in Tibet—is that it is unusual and the product of a first-class mind...a wildly exciting story, nightmare, fantasy, or what you will”—Daily Express

This carefully crafted ebook: “LOST HORIZON - The Legend of Shangri-La” is formatted for your eReader with a functional and detailed table of contents: Shangri-La is a fictional place described in the 1933 novel Lost Horizon by British author James Hilton. Hilton describes Shangri-La as a mystical, harmonious valley, gently guided from a lamasery, enclosed in the western end of the Kunlun Mountains. Shangri-La has become synonymous with any earthly paradise, and particularly a mythical Himalayan utopia – a permanently happy land, isolated from the outside world. In the novel, Hugh Conway, a veteran member of the British diplomatic service, finds inner peace, love, and a sense of purpose in Shangri-La, whose inhabitants enjoy unheard-of longevity. Among the book's themes is an allusion to the possibility of another cataclysmic world war brewing. It is said to have been inspired at least in part by accounts of travels in Tibetan borderlands, published in National Geographic by the explorer and botanist Joseph Rock. The remote communities he visited, such as Muli, show many similarities to the fictional Shangri-La. James Hilton (1900-1954) was an English novelist and Hollywood screenplayer best remembered for his best-sellers Lost Horizon and Goodbye, Mr. Chips.

Encompassing astronomy, mythology, psychology, and astrology, Pluto offers a wealth of knowledge about our most famous dwarf planet. First observed in 1930 and once defined as the ninth and final planet in our solar system, Pluto and its discovery and reclassification throw a unique light on how we generate meaning in science and culture. This anthology, timed to appear in concordance with NASA’s New Horizons's approach to Pluto in July 2015, shows that while the astronomical Pluto may be little more than an ordinary escaped moon or tiny Kuiper Belt object, it is a powerful hyperobject, for its mythological and cultural effigies on Earth incubate deep unconscious seeds of the human psyche. Certain astronomical features pertain to Pluto in terms of its distance from the Sun, coldness, and barrenness. These also inform its mythology and astrology as befitting a planet named after the God of the Underworld. Among the issues central to this collection are the meanings of darkness, loss, grief, inner transformation, rebirth, reincarnation, and karmic revelation, all of which are associated with the astrology of Pluto. Pluto also embodies the meaning of true wealth as being nonmaterial essence instead of property, conventional accolades, ego identity, achievement. It is the marker of negative capability.

An'Thaya D'Riel Alcarin - fierce Warrior Princess and Amazon Queen - for centuries she loved only one man, util he broker her heart one to many times. Her life is filled with pain and confusion, but still she cannot seem to let him go. A single evening alters her fate and a choice offers itself - which path will she take? The Elen Prince who has owned her heart for millennia? Or a Dragon Emperor who has lost his horizon... Callan caught An'Thaya by the hand as she turned, and took two more steps, crowding her between him and the wall near the door. "So, I'll ask you again..." Callan's voice dropped to a gritty whisper as his fingers found their way to An'Thaya's jaw and tilted her head up, "Why are you here?" An archy of electricity shot through her and their bondmarks flared in unison. A small whimper escaped the Amazon before she could stop it, and emerald eyes met his blind gaze. "I don't know," she whispered. Note: The reading order for our novels on our website under the Bardic Web Book Store.

Literature Review from the year 2003 in the subject Communications - Movies and Television, grade: A, San Francisco State University (Ethnic Studies), course: AAS 693 Asian Americans and the Mass Media, language: English, abstract: At first sight, Lost Horizon may be understood as a utopia, a paradise opposed to the wartorn world of 1937. At that time, there had already been quite a number of incidents which would lead up to the Second World War, especially concerning the Japanese attempts to colonize Asia. One of these attempts would be the 1931 invasion of Manchuria by the Japanese army, and the establishment of the puppet state Manchukuo, another would be the 1937 Marco Polo Bridge Incident, which brought about the beginning of the second Sino-Japanese War. However, I do not consider Lost Horizon as the portrayal of a paradise: in my opinion, the movie perpetuates stereotypes about Asians. This was certainly true in the 1930s, but this effect may still show today for many people still hold the same stereotypes today. They include the idea that Asians are followers, that they belong to an inferior culture, that they have accents, and so on. The idea that Asians are followers is most evident in the leading role of white people like the High Lama, Father Perrault, and Robert Conway, a little less evident if one looks at the fact that Sondra, a white woman, is the school teacher of the Asian children, and, therefore, a leader, too. However, most leaders are men. We soon find out that Chang, who first appears to be a leader, is, in reality, only a puppet of the High Lama. Except Chang, who is, in a way, a perfect imitation of a white man and a product of Father Perrault, Asians hardly speak or act at all as individuals. This idea of whites leading and Asians following is also apparent in the music played in the background of many scenes: tranquil and monotonous music is used to assert Asian passiveness, whereas loud music is used to emphasize white activeness. All seems to indicate, moreover, that there is a definite need for a white leader in Shangri-La. It seems unimaginable for Father Perrault to make an Asian, even his creation Chang who is the imitation of a white man, a leader. He rather takes immeasurable efforts to lead Conway, a real white, to Shangri-La.
