Refractions by Highway Joe
It's 2481 AD. Phil is a jaded intergalactic shipper stranded out in space. Henry is an interstellar traveller with an invisible ship he can't uncloak. Rick is the stowaway who can fix both ships. All of them have a secret....REFRACTIONS is band slash featuring characters based on the guys from Def Leppard, quite the character based on Henry Rollins, and liberal doses of Highway Joe's utterly unique imagination.(Neither Rockfic Press nor Highway Joe are affiliated with Def Leppard or Henry Rollins. This book was written without the involvement of either. This book is a work of fiction.)
Opticks by Sir Isaac Newton
Refractions by Octavio Armand
In eleven experiments, each refracting a poem in an essay, Cuban-born Octavio Armard ranges from tattoos as tests of personal identity to the paintings of Van Gogh, from Kafka's fables to Lezama Lima's fabulousness--all viewed from the point of view of the exiled writer. ALTA Outstanding Translation Award.
Refractions Of Mathematics Education by Christer Bergsten
The diversity of research in mathematics education has been addressed as both, a problem and a strength. When manifested through adherence to different intellectual roots and theoretical orientations, diversions constitute ‘refractions’ of mathematics education. The collection and analysis of empirical data in a study are by necessity refracted through the specific analytical lens employed, as well as the aim of the study itself. Refractions can also refer to looking at old phenomena through new lenses. The chapters in this book are refracted through philosophical, political, mathematical and personal lenses by distinguished authors in the field, addressing issues about the elusive experience of doing mathematics, purification of texts, refractions, mathematics and ethnomathematics, political messages in textbook tasks, mathematics education policy debate, the political in mathematics education research, philosophy and mathematics, meanings and representations, identity of mathematical modeling, and dilemmas in the teaching of calculus. An ancient Sanskrit adage states that Knowledge is something that grows when shared, but shrinks when hoarded. Academics engaged in the generation of new Knowledge are blessed with both the time and the freedom to engage in pursuits that allow for intellectual pleasure. As a phenomenon of the Zeitgeist many have succumbed to the increased corporatization of academic work, engaging in activities for monetary and self advancement purposes. Are there any real intellectuals left in academia, a là Adorno, Bourdieu, Chomsky, Foucault, among others? This Festschrift is dedicated to academics that don't bother with self promotion or aggrandizement of themselves or their ideas in simplistic terms.

Shingon Refractions by Mark Unno
Shingon Buddhism arose in the eighth century and remains one of Japan's most important sects, at present numbering some 12 million adherents. As such it is long overdue appropriate coverage. Here, the well-respected Mark Unno illuminates the tantric practice of the Mantra of Light, the most central of Shingon practices, complete with translations and an in-depth exploration of the scholar-monk Myoe Koben, the Mantra of Light's foremost proponent.
Midwest Refractions by Jay Scott Diers
Boys from Iowa and the Midwest grow tall, burly, and handsome in a way only Midwest boys can. Jay uses models (some professional, some amateur) to transport the viewer to the "Midwest" of innocence, purity, and the wholesomeness for which Middle America is known. It is the artist's desire to portray the Midwest as a unique place where one can find men doing farm chores during the day and going to a rave at night. A place that, with the Midwest stamp on it, gives you the boy next door who scores the touchdown, dates the prom queen (though is secretly in love with the tight end) and has a heart bigger than the whole state.
