(The king of oxymorons?)The notion that magic is outside reality prompted many literary critics to question the validity of the term "Magical Realism" on the grounds that it is an oxymoron. They erroneously assert that the proper interpretation of this wonderful and ever expanding genre is "Unreal realism". We will present you with a myriad of fabulous literary pieces that will hopefully disprove these undeserved attacks. We invite you to read them and make up your own mind of what "Magical Realism" is and what it is not.
Comic Book of the year (2006). Oxy (M) Publishing House has always been known for their amazing rigid flexibility in picking up all the mediocre masterpieces out there. This cloudy little gem is no exception.
This contemporary adaptation of the famous and completely unheard of fable "Merciless Kindness" earned top marks during the World Book Festival in Rome in 2010.
Frank Lyar is probably the most prolific writer of the 21st century. His respectful disdain for conventional story telling and attentive disregard to details is known and loved all around the world. For several years some of the major companies fought for the publishing rights to his works. After countless frivolous lawsuits "Magic Science Publishing House" appears to have gained the upper hand in the process.
Most of the titles published by "Loony Sane Co." are geared towards younger audiences, primarily prepubescent adults. "Hornless Unicorn" is one of the many fairy tales written and illustrated by I. Les Tom.
Many avid readers are familiar with Sally Veytt's documentary called "Dieting through Healthy Starvation" an interview with one of the few lucky survivors. Her recent works such as: "The Cursed Blessing of the Living Dead" and "Ancient Future" are only now gaining popularity. In March this year she signed a new contract with 'Anno Rexik O. B. City' Company.
The moment two brilliant authors team up to work on a book it is to be expected to produce a lot of commotion in the literary circles. It is our pleasure to present to you the "Peaceful Violence Solutions" by P.T. Phooll X.Q. Zis - critically acclaimed authors of another bestseller "22 Valid Reasons to Invade Iraq".
When tiny becomes enormous, and colossal becomes minuscule I. M. Bonkers is the one to tell us about it. His new series called "Ungodly Saint" is a big hit that comes with our unqualified recommendation. Whether it is lively lethargy or invigorating depression consuming the world, Bonkers' superhero will always save the day.
Another one of Frank Lyar's works. After the tremendous success of the movies "Regally Uncouth" and "Despicable Virtues", where Lyar was a screenplay writer, he proceeded to share his thoughts about the American politics with his usual reluctant fervor. "The Last Honest Politician" is as honest as it is brutal in its murky clarity of the events described in a forthcoming and diligently avoiding style. A must read, indeed!
"Unreal Digest" is known for its trusting skepticism towards big corporate publishers. But in the case of "Rapid Stagnation Press" they made an exception and it seems to be working. "The Mystery Of The Unmovable Speeding Car" is the result of that invincibly fragile partnership. "Magic in the making! Pinkies up!"
When the demand is high "Colombian Magical Reality Cartel" is here to oblige. When quality and discretion are of paramount insignificance "No More Red Ribbon Weeks" publishing will quench the thirst. "Drugless Narcotics" is exactly what these two literary Titans are capable of delivering when they combine their forces. "No more drama, no more side effects, no more raids by the feds", Feel-Good Pharmaceuticals' vice president Narco Placebo told NY Times last week: "Safe for you, safe for your Grandma, you can even give it to your dog or hamster. It's a win-win situation."
Have you ever wondered why BMW and Cadillac owners don't cover their vehicles with a blanket of stickers that tell us more about the owner then they themselves could ever express? No? Have you wondered why those usually are Corollas, Geo Metros, and alike? Hmm... Perhaps, you will enjoy this cute adventure into human psyche from Sincere Hypocrisy Press. Don't forget to check out the "Hardened Heart of Love" and "I Pray for the Freedom to Hate."
