A highly original study that examines the central role played by women as mediums, healers, and believers during the golden age of spiritualism in the late Victorian era, The Darkened Room is more than a meditation on women mediums—it's an exploration of the era's gender relations. The hugely popular spiritualist movement, which maintained that women were uniquely qualified to commune with spirits of the dead, offered female mediums a new independence, authority, and potential to undermine conventional class and gender relations in the home and in society. Using previously unexamined sources and an innovative approach, Alex Owen invokes the Victorian world of darkened séance rooms, theatrical apparitions, and moving episodes of happiness lost and regained. She charts the struggles between spiritualists and the medical and legal establishments over the issue of female mediumship, and provides new insights into the gendered dynamics of Victorian society.

Depression spreads like a contagion through families, affecting everyone's lives, especially children's. The spouses of people with depression are several times more likely to become depressed themselves; their children are four to six times more likely. Drawing from a comprehensive, long-term study of resilient children from depressed families, Out of the Darkened Room outlines a wide array of prevention strategies, from the family meeting to open and sustained communication on the subject of mental illness. Dr. Beardslee weaves together his own personal and clinical experiences with the emerging scientific research, the key theoretical concepts, and the steps families need to take in order to make sense of the illness. This is the first book to look at depression as an illness that affects the entire family, not just the individual. Just as The Unexpected Legacy of Divorce tracked the impact of divorce on children, Out of the Darkened Room examines the long-term effects of parental depression. Major depression is one and a half to three times more common among immediate family members than among the general population. Beardslee's 20-year longitudinal study has established the accepted protocol for treating families struggling with a parent who is depressed.

PLACES, LIKE PEOPLE, GO WRONG They turn off the path and head into the shadows, becoming something other than normal. Black places filled with blank rooms, closed doors, and empty hallways lined with dust. In these places your voice catches in your throat, the air seems to hum, and bad things happen. People get hurt. Objects vanish. Misery flows like the water from the loose faucet in the bathroom. Hate hangs in the air like old paint. It smells of time and circumstance, and something just a little beyond the world. It smells like surrender. The house at 1206 Spooner Avenue is a place gone wrong. In the last 50 years, 18 people have died there, and you can feel it. Doors in 1206 Spooner Avenue stay shut, and no one ever hears a child's laughter at night. In the hours that stretch like taffy after two, no one ever hears music from a darkened room. "Music From a Darkened Room" is a scenario playable with Delta Green: Need to Know or Delta Green: Agent's Handbook, available from Arc Dream Publishing. Good luck.

Seven persons find themselves trapped in a room. They know neither how they came to be there nor how they will escape. Not only are they ignorant of the hows and wherefores, but they are inexplicably unsure of their very natures, seemingly ignorant of the most basic reason for being anywhere, the room notwithstanding.

Seven persons find themselves trapped in a room. They know neither how they came to be there nor how they will escape. Not only are they ignorant of the hows and wherefores, but they are inexplicably unsure of their very natures, seemingly ignorant of the most basic reason for being anywhere, the room notwithstanding. Finding nothing better to do, each lays claim to a stool, five of which form the basic furnishings of the space in which they are trapped. There they sit and wait, passing the time as best they can. Another curious fact of their predicament is that they seem to find themselves blinded, even though the room is brightly lit. The course of the play deals, for the most part, with one character, Cary, as he first makes his way into the room, then attempts to make sense of his being there. Forming a romantic attachment to Vivian, he spends the course of the play searching for her from corner to corner as she makes her promiscuous way to each of the other inhabitants. As Cary searches, always one step behind Vivian, he discovers that the other inhabitants have conflicting ideas concerning how they all came to be trapped in the room, thus increasing his already stupefying confusion.
