THE HIDDEN THIRD, 

Basarab Nicolescu

“Landing between prose and poetry, science and art, philosophy and spirituality, The Hidden Third charismatically disseminates a new renaissance transmission. Leaving the reader breathless, re-imagined, re-generated. Mind duly sanctified.”                            

— Gary P. Hampson.

BASARAB NICOLESCU (Ploiesti, Romania, 1942) is an honorary theoretical physicist at the French   National Center of Scientific Research (CNRS). His publications include Science, Meaning and Evolution – The Cosmology of Jacob Boehme, Manifesto of Transdisciplinarity and From Modernity to Cosmodernity. The Hidden Third is the English translation of Théorèmes poétiques. 

ALMA, 

Javier Moreno 

“The only possible points of comparison for Javier Moreno’s Alma, a book made of sentences, dealing with the materiality of the living, and obsessed with sorting, would be those texts that are most luminous and uncanny. Alma, unlike anything else I have read, brings together certain amazing qualities of Craig Dworkin’s Legion (which consists entirely of statements from a psychiatric diagnostic instrument), of the more radical of David Markson’s novels, and of the quietly fevered voices from the writing of Roberto Bolaño. Is it a soul? A novel? Interesting questions – but in any case, Alma is a configuration of words that demands to be sorted through, one that is compellingly unhinged, open and shut.” Nick Montfort, Media Studies at MIT

JAVIER MORENO is a Spanish writer, poet, mathematician and literary critic. He is the author, amongst others,  of the novels Buscando batería / Drummer Wanted, La Hermogeniada and Click (Recipient of the FNAC New Talent Award, 2008). 

ONE DAY IN THE SECRET FOREST OF WORDS, 

Vicente Valero

“This writing offers an animism that refuses animism, a humanism that refuses humanism, a spirituality that rejects the self-preening moral high ground — but also an astonishment that refuses any limitations on the realm of astonishment.” Leonard Schwartz, author of IF (Talisman House).

VICENTE VALERO (Ibiza, 1963). With six poetry collections, Valero is established as one of the foremost poets of his generation, present in the most essential anthologies of Spanish poetry of the last decades. Días del bosque / One Day in the Secret Forest of Words received the International Poetry Prize from the Loewe Foundation in 2007.

READING IS WALKING

The Encyclopedia Series

Gonçalo M. Tavares

“The greatest gift of the young Portuguese novelist Gonçalo M. Tavares is his ability, as a writer, to reduce the world to fragments and reconstruct it again as if it were his own creation. Each of his books (or set of books) is a kaleidoscope that rearranges reality for us better to observe it.” Alberto Manguel

“Gonçalo M. Tavares is a writer who is unlike any you’ve read before. He has a gift—like Flann O’Brien or Kafka or Beckett—for revealing the ways in which logic can be as faithful a servant of madness as of reason.” Mark O'Conell, The New Yorker

“I’ve predicted that in thirty years’ time, if not before, he will win the Nobel Prize and I’m sure my prediction will come true.” José Saramago

“Tavares’s standing will soon be global.” Times Literary Supplement

GONÇALO TAVARES (Luanda, 1970) has been published in almost fifty countries and has been awarded an impressive amount of national and international literary prizes. Jerusalem received the Prêmio Portugal Telecom de Literatura em Língua Portuguesa and the LER / Millenium Prize. Learning to Pray in the Age of Technique was awarded the Best Foreign Book in France. He also received the Grande Prêmio da Associação Portuguesa de Escritores. In Reading is Walking (The Encyclopedia Series), Tavares reflects, with his already distinctive style, on the subjects of Science, Fear, Connections, Music and Bloom-Literature. Beside his work as a writer, the author teaches Epistemology at the University of Lisbon.
