Sixteen-year-old Georgia Richter feels conflicted about the funeral home her parents run--especially because she has the ability to summon ghosts.

With one touch of any body that passes through Richter Funeral Home, she can awaken the spirit of the departed. With one more touch, she makes the spirit disappear, to a fate that remains mysterious to Georgia. To cope with her deep anxiety about death, she does her best to fulfill the final wishes of the deceased whose ghosts she briefly revives.

Then her classmate Milo's body arrives at Richter--and his spirit wants help with unfinished business, forcing Georgia to reckon with her relationship to grief and mortality.

From Penn Jillette of the legendary magic duo Penn & Teller: a rollicking crime caper that will bend your mind like a spoon.

Random is everything you would hope from Penn Jillette and so much more. Random numbers are seemingly crazy, unconnected, and unpredictable: this fabulous, wondrously compelling, funny, and original novel is all that too. As for laughs—it passed the the fling-up-the-head-snort-and-slap-the-thigh test a dozen times in the first few pages alone. Hugely recommended.” —Stephen Fry, actor/writer

“Bravo, Bobby Ingersoll. Encore, Penn Jillette!” —Debbie Harry

Two weeks before his twenty-first birthday, Las Vegas native Bobby Ingersoll finds out he’s inherited a crushing gambling debt from his scumbag father. The debt is owed to an even scummier bag named Fraser Ruphart who oversees his bottom-rung criminal empire from the classy-adjacent Trump International Hotel. Bobby’s prospects of paying off the note, which comes due the day he turns twenty-one, are about as dim as the sign on the tower’s facade.

The two weeks pass in the blink of a (snake) eye, but before Bobby’s luck runs out, he stumbles upon enough cash to pay Ruphart off and change his family’s fortune. More importantly, he finds himself with a new, for lack of a better word, faith.

Bobby does not consign his big break to a “higher power”—what Penn Jillette hero ever could? Instead, he devises and devotes himself to Random, a philosophy where his life choices are based entirely on the roll of his “lucky” dice. What follows is a hilarious exploration into not so much what defines us as what divines us when we give over every decision—from what to eat to whom to marry to how or when to die—to the random fall of two numbered cubes.

Combining the intellectual curiosity of Richard Dawkins with the humor and grit of an Elmore Leonard antihero, Jillette’s up-on-his-luck Ingersoll is the character we need to help us navigate the chaos of the post-truth era.

Well, unless his roll runs cold.

In a world ruled by fear of witches, some secrets are deadly. A thrilling new fantasy adventure set in historical London for fans of V.E. Schwab's City of Ghosts and Serafina and the Black Cloak.

Emmaline Black has a secret. She can hear the rhythm of heartbeats. Not just her own, but others' too. It's a rhythm she's learned to control, and that can only mean one thing... Emma's a witch.

In a world where a sentence of witchcraft comes with dire consequences and all children who have reached the age of thirteen are tested to ensure they have no witch blood, Emma must attempt to stamp out her power before her own test comes. But the more she researches, the more she begins to suspect that her radically anti-witch aunt and mother are hiding something -- the truth about their sister, her Aunt Lenore, who disappeared under mysterious circumstances years ago.

The day of the test comes, and Emma's results not only pair her up with strange new friends, but set her on a course to challenge everything she's ever been taught about magic, and reveal long-buried family secrets. It seems witches may not have been so easy to banish after all. Secret cities, untapped powers, missing family members -- Emma is about to discover a whole new world.

Weird and Horrific Stories collects some of H. P. Lovecraft’s finest early work. Although his reputation as one of the world’s greatest writers of horror and weird fiction remains undisputed, much of his writing was published in such pulp literary magazines as Argosy, the United Amateur, and Weird Tales, making it difficult to find proper collections. Weird and Horrific Stories attempts to bridge this gap for modern readers, bringing them face to face with some of Lovecraft’s most terrifying creations.

The Alchemist, originally written in 1908 and published in 1916, is the story of Count Antoine, whose ancestors were cursed after killing a fearsome dark wizard named Michel Mauvais. Every generation since has seen the death of its male members at the age of thirty-two, an age fast approaching for Antoine. Lonely and terrified, he sets out to put an end to the cycle of death and suffering. Dagon, which appeared in The Vagrant in 1919, is a story told by a morphine-addicted man who survived a terrible shipwreck during the First World War. In The Cats of Ulthar, published in 1920, an unnamed narrator recounts the legal history of the town of Ulthar, which once was the home to a sadistic couple known for their obsession with torturing and killing house cats. Weird and Horrific Stories collects over thirty stories written at the height of Lovecraft’s career.

With a beautifully designed cover and professionally typeset manuscript, this edition of H. P. Lovecraft’s Weird and Horrific Stories is a classic work of American horror reimagined for modern readers.

Romantic and Horrific Stories is a collection of short fiction by Bram Stoker. Although he is largely remembered as the author of Dracula (1897), one of the greatest horror novels of all time, Stoker was a versatile writer whose gift for transmitting terror is matched by his ability to craft convincing and moving tales of love.

The Crystal Cup, first published in London Society in 1872, is the story of an artist who is forced to create a flawless crystal vase for the king. Having left his wife and home behind, he suffers under a series of constraints and grueling demands. The Chain of Destiny is a bestselling epistolary tale featuring hypnotism, magic, and supernatural elements that first appeared in The Shamrock in 1875. In Stoker’s 1898 tale Bengal Roses, a teenager from the country falls for a beautiful young woman, but soon discovers she loves an older cavalry officer. First published in Lloyd’s Weekly Newspaper in 1899, A Yellow Duster is the story of two old men whose lifelong friendship is threatened by a mysterious secret. Curious about a dust rag found in his friend’s display case, the story’s protagonist asks the collector of rare and priceless objects why he has preserved something so seemingly worthless.

Other stories collected herein include Our New House, published in the Boston Herald in 1895, as well as The Burial of the Rats and A Dream of Red Hands, both of which appeared in Dracula’s Guest and Other Stories (1914). Romantic and Horrific Stories compiles a dozen works of short fiction by Bram Stoker, the secretive and vastly underrated creator of Dracula, one of history’s greatest villains. With a beautifully designed cover and professionally typeset manuscript, this edition of Bram Stoker’s Romantic and Horrific Stories is a classic of Irish literature reimagined for modern readers.

Scientific and Horrific Stories is a collection of short fiction by H. G. Wells. Despite his humble beginnings as the son of English servants, H. G. Wells would become one of the most revered writers of his day.

His stories of adventure, utopia, and terror inspired such vastly different figures as Vladimir Nabokov, Winston Churchill, Jorge Luis Borges, and Sinclair Lewis. Many of his novels have been adapted for film, theater, radio, and television, including The Time Machine (1895), The Island of Doctor Moreau (1896), and The War of the Worlds (1898).

Scientific and Horrific Stories includes twenty-six tales from across Wells’ career. The Chronic Argonauts, written while Wells was recuperating from an illness with friends in Stoke-on-Trent, is a story of time travel set in rural Wales that predates his beloved The Time Machine by seven years. Æpyornis Island is a terrifying tale of greed and survival that originally appeared in an 1894 issue of the Pall Mall Budget. Tasked with finding rare Aepyornis eggs, a rugged Englishman named Butcher ventures to a remote swamp on the island of Madagascar. When one of the eggs unexpectedly hatches, he is left stranded and at the mercy of a vicious creature that was believed to be extinct. In The Diamond Maker, which also appeared in the Pall Mall Budget, a destitute man tells a wealthy businessman about his years as a maker of artificial diamonds, a time of great promise that ultimately led to his downfall.

With a beautifully designed cover and professionally typeset manuscript, this edition of H. G. Wells’ Scientific and Horrific Stories is a classic of English literature reimagined for modern readers.

In her gripping follow-up to the widely acclaimed Dust Bowl Mystery Death of a Rainmaker, Laurie Loewenstein brings 1930s Oklahoma evocatively to life.

Already suffering the privations of the 1930s Dust Bowl, an Oklahoma town is further devastated when a passenger train derails—flooding its hospital with the dead and maimed. Among the seriously wounded is Etha, wife of Sheriff Temple Jennings. Overwhelmed by worry for her, the sheriff must regain his footing to investigate the derailment, which rapidly develops into a case of sabotage.

The following night, a local recluse is murdered. Temple has a hunch that this death is connected to the train wreck. But as he dissects the victim’s life with help from the recuperating and resourceful Etha, he discovers a tangle of records that make a number of townsfolk suspects in the murder.

Temple’s investigations take place against the backdrop of the Great Depression—where bootlegging, petty extortion, courage, and bravado play out in equal measure.

A bold and absurd new take on the dystopian plague novel, where people are treated like IKEA furniture

Distraught and hopeless, an eighteen-year-old distance runner, Regan, decides to end her life. And she'll do it through an unusual new method available only on the dark web. Enter Ülle, a woman with amnesia, who will, inadvertently, make Regan's wish come true.

But Ülle begins to remember her past and the outrageous steps her government took to combat a deadly pandemic of parasitic infections, which have brought her to this new country and to Regan's house. Meanwhile, Regan might be changing her mind, and she finds herself more and more concerned about keeping both Ülle and herself alive. But the shadowy organization that brought them together wants to keep them both quiet - permanently.

A Suitable Companion for the End of Your Life is a darkly comic dystopian tale that probes our anxieties around boundaries, whether territorial or bodily, and our fraught desire not to die alone.

"Gripping from the first page, Robert McGill's A Suitable Companion for the End of Your Life is a dark, speculative novel with echoes of The Handmaid's Tale, set against the backdrop of a plague. Some of us would do anything to survive, down to flatpacking ourselves like IKEA furniture, while others would do anything to make our miserable lives end. This is timely, provocative, ethically challenging fiction that asks whether the drive to survive is stronger than the inevitability of death." —Ian Williams, author of Reproduction

"Terrifying and tender, A Suitable Companion's sci-fi angle serves to frame a fascinating parable about the post-post-modern family. Unpredictable and completely original, this is a propulsive, rewarding, and thought-provoking read." —Michael Redhill, author of Bellevue Square

​​"The guy knows what he's doing, from missing children to silk parachutes, you are never lost and he will catch you." —Zadie Smith, author of NW

"A storyteller who refuses to keep things straight, and for this produces freshly captivating effects." —Andrew Pyper, author of The Demonologist

"A writer of striking talent and originality." —Daily Mail on The Mysteries

"McGill is a talented writer, adept at expressing the nuanced, unspoken truths that beg the lies by which we live." —Observer on The Mysteries

A groundbreaking exploration of the parental brain that untangles insidious myths from complicated realities, Mother Brain explodes the concept of "maternal instinct" and tells a new story about what it means to become a parent.

Before journalist Chelsea Conaboy gave birth, she anticipated the joy of holding her newborn, the endless dirty diapers, and the sleepless nights. What she didn't expect was how different she would feel--a shift in self, as deep as it was disorienting. Something was changing: her brain.

New parents undergo major brain changes, driven by hormones and the deluge of stimuli a baby provides. These neurobiological changes help all parents--birthing or otherwise--adapt in those intense first days and prepare for a long period of learning how to meet their child's needs. Yet this science is mostly absent from the public conversation about parenthood.

Conaboy delves into the neuroscience to reveal unexpected upsides, generations of scientific neglect, and a powerful new narrative of parenthood.

Fantastic and Horrific Stories is a collection of short fiction by Arthur Machen. Condemned as decadent and obscene upon publication, Machen’s writing earned praise from Oscar Wilde and H. P. Lovecraft.

Throughout the years, Machen’s work has been referenced and adapted by such figures as Stephen King, Guillermo del Toro, and Josh Malerman for its masterfully unsettling blend of science, myth, and magic. The Great God Pan, perhaps Machen’s most celebrated work, is the story of an occult experiment gone horribly wrong. Clarke has always taken an interest in occult matters, so when a friend offers him a chance to witness an experimental procedure intended to access the spirit realm, he cannot refuse. When the young patient Mary awakens, she shows signs of terror and soon falls into a catatonic state. Convinced of their success in discovering the world of “the great god Pan,” Clarke and Raymond agree to keep their discovery a secret. Years later, a nearby town begins reporting the mysterious disappearances of young children, all of whom have been seen in the forest with a young woman named Helen Vaughn.

In The White People, originally published in Horlick’s Magazine in 1904, a Welshman receives the diary of a young girl introduced to witchcraft. Surprisingly well-kept for its age, the green book accompanies Cotgrave on a journey through the lush countryside. Its pages contain the diary of a young girl who, encouraged by her nurse, immerses herself in the world of magic. As she grows adept in the ways of witchcraft, the girl begins referring to strange beings and unknown places, all while doing her best to conceal her secret life from friends and family.

The Hill of Dreams is a semi-autobiographical novel about a young man who begins having strange visions after visiting an ancient Roman fort near his rural Welsh home. Published alongside The Inmost Light, The Shining Pyramid, The Terror, Out of the Earth, and Ornaments in Jade, these tales by Arthur Machen showcase his gift for illuminating the presence of the supernatural in everyday life.

With a beautifully designed cover and professionally typeset manuscript, this edition of Arthur Machen’s Fantastic and Horrific Stories is a classic of British horror fiction reimagined for modern readers.

Mysterious and Horrific Stories is a collection of Gothic tales by Joseph Sheridan Le Fanu. Although he is more widely known today for his novella Carmilla (1872), which influenced Bram Stoker’s Dracula (1897) and remains an important work of early vampire fiction, Le Fanu was also an influential figure in mid-nineteenth century Irish literature as a writer and editor for the Dublin University Magazine.

Mysterious and Horrific Stories collects fifteen of Le Fanu’s finest works of short fiction from across his storied career. In The Fortunes of Sir Robert Ardagh, a man returns home after years abroad accompanied by a strange, shadowy companion. Under mysterious circumstances, Sir Robert has amassed a tremendous fortune and seems either unwilling or unable to reveal the truth behind his sudden rise to wealth. In Schalken the Painter, a young Dutch apprentice falls in love with his master’s young niece, the beautiful Rose Velderkaust. Fearful of angering the great painter Gerard Douw, whom he worries would reject a marriage proposal from a struggling artist, he keeps silent about his affections. When an older, wealthier man proposes to Rose, Douw consents to their marriage despite the man’s unsettling appearance. The Drunkard’s Dream is a tale of horror in which a man receives a powerful and terrifying vision of Hell.

Alongside twelve more tales of ghosts and other supernatural forces, including An Authentic Narrative of a Haunted House and The Child That Went With the Fairies, these selections from Le Fanu’s body of work continue to entertain and astound nearly two centuries after they first appeared in print. With a beautifully designed cover and professionally typeset manuscript, this edition of Joseph Sheridan Le Fanu’s Mysterious and Horrific Stories is a classic of Irish literature reimagined for modern readers.

A passionate, probing collection gathering nearly thirty years of groundbreaking reflection on culture and society alongside four new essays, by one of our most respected essayists and critics.

What is the internet doing to us? What is college for? What are the myths and metaphors we live by? These are the questions that William Deresiewicz has been pursuing over the course of his award-winning career. The End of Solitude brings together more than forty of his finest essays, including four that are published here for the first time.

Ranging widely across the culture, they take up subjects as diverse as Mad Men and Harold Bloom, the significance of the hipster, and the purpose of art. Drawing on the past, they ask how we got where we are. Scrutinizing the present, they seek to understand how we can live more mindfully and freely, and they pose two fundamental questions: What does it mean to be an individual, and how can we sustain our individuality in an age of networks and groups?

In an attempt to cheer up a sad-looking worm, a narrator makes things worse by causing the worm to cry. But in the process of trying to make the sobbing worm feel better, the narrator starts to think of the various ways tears can be used productively. For example, if you're sad around lunchtime, cry until you fill a pot with your tears and boil pasta - you won't even need to season with salt! Crying can be used to dilute paint, and with paint, you can make beautiful art.

​​For readers of Madhouse at the End of the Earth, Endurance, and other seafaring adventure stories comes a thrilling account of a 21st-century Arctic mission.

"A contemporary classic!"—Ken McGoogan, author of Fatal Passage

"Show-stopping."­—Publisher's Weekly STARRED Review

The Greatest Polar Expedition of All Time vividly describes one year aboard the Polarstern, a powerful ice-breaker ship that journeyed deep into the Arctic in 2019, carrying over 100 scientists and crew known as the MOSAiC Expedition. Hailing from across the world, they would become the largest expedition to ever survive a polar winter. Their purpose? To understand - and predict - the impacts of climate change on the Arctic.

Written by the expedition's leader, the renowned atmospheric scientist Markus Rex, this page-turner reads like a captain's log of daily life aboard the Polarstern. Living in one of the most remote, dangerous, and electrifying places on earth, Rex describes incredible sights: polar bears playing with scientific equipment, Christmas parties in the bitter cold, frostbitten scientists, and hair-raising storms that threaten to break the Polarstern's cables and send it flying across the ice. He also reveals breathtaking science from deep inside the sea ice.

Filled with sobering, heart-warming, and bone-chilling moments, The Greatest Polar Expedition of All Time is a testament to Rex's extraordinary drive to save a precious ecosystem. It's also an ode to a place that has beguiled sailors and explorers for centuries.

"The fierce debut by Medicine for the Resistance podcaster Krawec critiques the harmful impact of European Christian settler colonialism on Indigenous Americans. The author, who is of Anishinaabe and Ukrainian heritage, details Indigenous American history from the first humans to populate the Americas through the present and outlines ways in which descendants of European colonizers and Indigenous people can become 'good relatives'.... Krawec's prose is electric, shot through with passion and knowledge [and] offers thought-provoking ideas." —Publishers Weekly

The invented history of the Western world is crumbling fast, Anishinaabe writer Patty Krawec says, but we can still honor the bonds between us. Settlers dominated and divided, but Indigenous peoples won't just send them all "home."

Weaving her own story with the story of her ancestors and with the broader themes of creation, replacement, and disappearance, Krawec helps readers see settler colonialism through the eyes of an Indigenous writer. Settler colonialism tried to force us into one particular way of living, but the old ways of kinship can help us imagine a different future. Krawec asks, What would it look like to remember that we are all related? How might we become better relatives to the land, to one another, and to Indigenous movements for solidarity? Braiding together historical, scientific, and cultural analysis, Indigenous ways of knowing, and the vivid threads of communal memory, Krawec crafts a stunning, forceful call to "unforget" our history.

This remarkable sojourn through Native and settler history, myth, identity, and spirituality helps us retrace our steps and pick up what was lost along the way: chances to honor rather than violate treaties, to see the land as a relative rather than a resource, and to unravel the history we have been taught.

"A vivid, important, and inspiring book."—Elizabeth Kolbert, Pulitzer Prize winning author of The Sixth Extinction and Under a White Sky

"Eloquently mulls the ecological dynamics of forests as well as the social, economic, cultural, and political forces that determine their fate."—LA Review of Books

A powerful book about the decline and recovery of the world's forests--with a provocative argument for their survival.

In A Trillion Trees, veteran environmental journalist Fred Pearce takes readers on a whirlwind journey through some of the most spectacular forests around the world. Along the way, he charts the extraordinary pace of forest destruction, and explores why some are beginning to recover.

With vivid, observant reporting, Pearce transports readers to the remote cloud forests of Ecuador, the remains of a forest civilization in Nigeria, a mystifying mountain peak in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean, and the boreal forests of western Canada and the United States, where devastating wildfires are linked to suppressing the natural fire cycles of forests and the maintenance practices of Indigenous peoples. 

Throughout the book, Pearce interviews the people who traditionally live in forests. He speaks to Indigenous peoples in western Canada and the United States who are fighting to control their traditional forested lands and manage them according to their traditional practices. He visits and speaks with Nepalese hill dwellers, Kenyan farmers, and West African sawyers who show him that forests are as much human landscapes as they are natural paradises. The lives of humans are now imprinted in forest ecology. 

At the heart of Pearce's investigation is a provocative argument: planting more trees isn't the answer to declining forests. If given room and left to their own devices, forests and the people who live in them will fight back to restore their own domain.

Ghosts, pirates and family secrets -- Stephen gets more than he bargained for when he seeks out adventure in the ghostly realm, for fans of When You Trap a Tiger.

Stephen loves pirates. What he doesn't love is his name: Stephen Oh-O'Driscoll. He believes when his Korean mother and Irish father gave him this name, that it was just one cruel setup for being teased. Giving things the proper name is important, which is why Stephen thinks that it's time to update the definition of "pirate." They've got a bad rep, and maybe they deserve some of it, but Stephen still likes a few pirate traditions, like bandannas and eyepatches -- he's just not that into stealing things from people. He has the perfect new word: piventurate. A sailor who passionately seeks adventure. That's what he wants to be. 

When he gets suspended from school for doing proper piventurate-in-training things (using sticks to practice sword fighting), his mother doesn't let him sit around doing nothing, instead she takes him to a museum. At the museum everything changes. Stephen finds himself in a strange new place, face-to-face with a real pirate. A pirate ghost.  

Captain Sapperton needs Stephen's help to cross to the other side, and his former ghost crew are intent on making sure Stephen follows through, whatever it takes. Stephen is about to discover the true meaning of piventurate, and much to his surprise, his adventure will not only take him farther into the ghostly realm, but also closer to home, where long-held family secrets reveal surprising ties to the spirit world.

A celebration of music from beginning to end, The Weary Blues is the debut poetry collection by the foremost Harlem Renaissance poet, Langston Hughes.

Droning a drowsy syncopated tune, / Rocking back and forth to a mellow croon, / I heard a Negro play. / Down on Lenox Avenue the other night / By the pale dull pallor of an old gas light / He did a lazy sway...

With these first lines, Hughes invites the reader into an experimental playground that tells the story of a Black man's life in America. Featuring poems such as, Dream Variations, The Negro Speaks of Rivers, and Our Land, Hughes weaves in and out of verse, highlighting the lows of struggle in the face of segregation and racism, but also the highs of creation from the time when, "the Negroes were in vogue."

Now considered to be an American classic, The Weary Blues embodies the feel of the rhythm, improvisation, and soul of Black classical music, pioneered the genre of "jazz poetry," and left an irreplaceable mark in the African-American literary canon.

Professionally typeset with a beautifully designed cover, this edition of The Weary Blues is a sensational reimagining of a Harlem Renaissance staple for the modern reader.

George S. Schuyler's Afrofuturistic novel Black No More, originally published in 1931, imagines a world where Black Americans have the chance to cross the color line and become white.

What would happen if science gave Black Americans the choice to become white? Mirroring The Blacker the Berry, by Wallace Thurman, George S. Schuyler's Black No More: Being an Account of the Strange and Wonderful Workings of Science in the Land of the Free, AD 1933-1940, is one of the first Afrofuturistic novels ever published.

On New Year's Eve, Max Disher's romantic advances are rejected on the basis that he is a Black man. Come New Year's Day, the answer to his frustration appears in the form of an announcement about a new scientific procedure called "Black-No-More." Believing that his life will have much more fortune in white skin, he goes through with the treatment—changing his name to "Matthew Fisher." The newly-made white Max has to decide what it means to live and breathe on the other side of the color line.

Professionally typeset with a beautifully designed cover, this edition of Black No More is a reimagining of a Harlem Renaissance staple for the modern reader.

"By turns heartfelt, bitingly funny, and emotionally devastating, Muddy People is not your average coming-of-age tale. I loved this memoir of a young Egyptian-Australian girl growing up Muslim. It's a clear-eyed, fierce debut; every word rings true."—Nadine Jolie Courtney, author of All-American Muslim Girl 

A quick, clever debut that is "like the best kind of cake: warm, sweet, a bit nutty--and made with so much love."—Alice Pung, author of Unpolished Gem

After leaving Egypt when Sara was only six years old, her family slowly learns how to navigate the social dynamics of their new home. Sara feels out of place in her new school. Her father refuses to buy his coworkers a ginger beer, thinking it contains alcohol. Her mother refuses to wear a hijab, even if it would help them connect with other local Muslims. And Sara learns what it feels like to have a crush on a boy, that some classmates are better friends than others, and that her parents are loving, but flawed people who don't always know what's best for her, despite being her strongest defenders.

A look at 21st-century city-building. Is the utopian "smart city" within our grasp?

The promise of the so-called smart city has been at the forefront of urban planning and development since the early 2010s, and the tech industry that supplies smart city software and hardware is now worth hundreds of billions a year.

But the ideas and approaches underpinning smart city tech raise tough and important questions about the future of urban communities, surveillance, automation, and public participation. The smart city era, moreover, belongs firmly in a longer historical narrative about cities -- one defined by utopian ideologies, architectural visions, and technological fantasies.

Smart streetlights, water and air quality tracking, autonomous vehicles: with examples from all over the world, including New York, Los Angeles, Boston, Portland, and Chicago, Dream States unpacks the world of smart city tech, but also situates this important shift in city-building into a broader story about why we still dream about perfect places.

In her 2022 HBO Documentary, Brené Brown shares her own story of how she gets a rush whenever she purges her possessions. While the idea of decluttering and downsizing appeals to many of us, it remains an elusive goal. Marie Kondo is credited with creating a movement around the ‘Life Changing Magic’ of decluttering.

Connie Ellefson has written a book that expands far beyond Kondo’s work. She shows how decluttering can be accomplished not only physically but, but spiritually and mentally. Connie shares how her own life became so much lighter, freerer, and ultimately more peaceful as she downsized and simplified - discovering the true reward of living simply so other may simply live.

As a species, we know the path we are on us unsustainable. We have create our own problems, but as someone famously said: we can’t solve the problem with the same mind that caused the problem.

Clear the Space... Feel The Rush is about a shift to a new perspective that reveals how we can finally solve our problem and drop what is weighing us down.

What truly matters? How will we ever know when we are overburdened by our ‘stuff’? Our stuff is not mere physical possessions. It’s also the ‘stuff’ we are attached to in our mind and body.

Author Connie Ellefson is an engineer and professional organizer working in the Denver metro area. Since 1994, she has help others discover greater creativity and increase energy that was tied up in unnecessary clutter. She tidies the untidy. Whether physical, emotional, or possessional, clutter takes up space in our psyches and calendars that could be put to much more productive, creative, and fun use. It’s all about helping you find that lost energy, and making room... allowing your true self to shine through.

"A must-read." --Buzzfeed

It's reflexive and common to view our online presence as fake; to see the internet as a space we enter when we aren't living our real, offline lives. But ever since a pandemic pushed more and more of our work, relationships, and even leisure into digital space, the internet doesn't feel so fake anymore. Every day, the lines between digital and "real" space blur even further.

Activist and writer Chris Stedman explores authenticity in the digital age, shining a light into and beyond age-old notions of realness--who we are and where we fit in the world--to bring fresh understanding for our increasingly online lives. Stedman offers a new way of seeing the supposed split between our online and offline selves, one in which online spaces and social media become new tools for understanding and expressing ourselves--and where the not-always-graceful ways we use these tools can reveal new insights for incorporating far older human truths into modern life. How might the online spaces we use fulfill our essential human need to feel real? Must we view the internet and the real world as binary, where there is no room for overlap? Playful and wise, Stedman suggests that the digital search for meaning and belonging presents challenges but also opportunities to become more fully human. He boldly invites us to embrace realness in all its uncertainty, online and off, no matter how risky it might feel.

A polemic about global warming and the environmental crisis, which argues that ordinary people have consistently opposed the destruction of nature and so provide an untapped constituency for climate action.

Crimes Against Nature uses fresh material to offer a very different take on the most important issue of our times. It takes the familiar narrative about global warming—the one in which we are all to blame—and inverts it, to show how, again and again, pollution and ecological devastation have been imposed on the population without our consent and (often) against our will. From histories of destruction, it distills stories of hope, highlighting the repeated yearning for a more sustainable world.

In the era of climate strikes, viral outbreaks, and Extinction Rebellion, Crimes Against Nature moves from ancient Australia to the 'corpse economy' of Georgian Britain to the 'Kitchen Debate' of the Cold War, to present an unexpected and optimistic environmental history—one that identifies ordinary people not as a collective problem but as a powerful force for change.

But when she and her partner find their plans for a baby dashed over and over--first by infertility, then miscarriage, and finally a breast cancer diagnosis--Klein's carefully structured life, marriage, and belief system begin to crumble. Adding a detour through the fickle world of open adoption seems like the last thing she should do; yet where she lacks control, she finds adventure. Empathetic, candid, and often humorous, Crybaby is the story of what happens when a failed perfectionist and successful hypochondriac is forced to make room in her life for grief and joy, fear and hope, all at the same time.

When teenager Janet Ravenscroft is rescued from the night time streets of downtown Inverness by a mysterious man on a black motorbike, little does she imagine what lies in store.

How could she know that this man holds the key to the mysteries that have plagued her life: her mixed heritage, her father’s casual cruelty, her mother’s absence, her sense that she’s never belonged? How could she know that her search for answers would lead her from the familiar environs of contemporary Scotland to the realm of faerie and that her life, her very soul, would be in jeopardy?

World renowned artist Charles Vess has worked with some of the greatest writers in fantastical fiction, including Neil Gaiman, Ursula Le Guin, and Charles de Lint, co-creating iconic works for which he has won numerous awards. He now unveils his remarkable debut novel. Born of a vision of two people racing across a field on a motorbike with a trail of burning grass in their wake, and inspired by the Ballad of Tam Lyn, Vess has produced a book of true wonder.

Originally published in two volumes between 1923 and 1925, Africa for Africans: Or, The Philosophy and Opinions of Marcus Garvey is a compilation of letters, speeches and essays by one of the Fathers of Pan-Africanism.

Hailed by Martin Luther King, Jr. as, "the first man of color... to make the Negro feel like he was somebody," Marcus Garvey was a polarizing yet influential figure whose legacy continues to be felt today. These philosophies, collected by Amy Jacques Garvey, his second wife and a pioneering journalist, chronicle Garvey's initial impressions and recollections of America, the formation of the Universal Negro Improvement Association (UNIA), his imprisonment and subsequent trial over the Black Star Line, and his scathing opinions of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP).

Including such pieces as, "An Appeal to the Soul of White America," "The Negro's Greatest Enemy," and "Declaration of Rights of the Negroes of the World," Africa for Africans; Or, The Philosophy and Opinions of Marcus Garvey is an essential piece of Black history, professionally typeset and reimagined for modern readers.

Everyone knows a girl locked in a tower is supposed to wait for a prince—but that isn’t the destiny this girl has in mind.

Esme’s life has been filled with secrets. Her mother says she’s destined to be a queen, but she won’t say when. Or how. Or who Esme’s father is.

When Esme is imprisoned by the evil fairy godmother, she only has more questions. Who is the young man guarding her? Why is he so interested in her father’s identity? And can she convince him to help her escape before she’s forced to marry whichever self-absorbed prince with a hero complex turns up to rescue her?

Since his father’s murder, Rory’s life has depended on keeping his identity secret. Working for the fairy godmother seems like a fair trade for his safety until he’s sent to kidnap a girl who wears his family ring, a girl his father’s ghost is suspiciously quiet about.

Unraveling their connection might do more than save them both from the fairy godmother. It might save the fate of an entire queendom.

But can Esme achieve her destiny when Rory’s trying to avoid his own?

The Rogue and the Peasant is a fun, fairytale adventure that blends Hamlet with Rapunzel to make something completely new.

Eduardo Halfon, Lisa Dillman (Translator), Daniel Hahn (Translator)

From internationally celebrated Eduardo Halfon comes a new installment in his hero’s nomadic odyssey as he searches for answers surrounding his grandfather’s abduction

In Canción, Eduardo Halfon’s eponymous wanderer is invited to a Lebanese writers’ conference in Japan, where he reflects on his Jewish grandfather’s multifaceted identity. To understand more about the cold, fateful day in January 1967 when his grandfather was abducted by Guatemalan guerillas, Halfon searches his childhood memories. Soon, chance encounters around the world lead to more clues about his grandfather’s captors, including a butcher nicknamed “Canción” (or song). As a brutal and complex history emerges against the backdrop of the Guatemalan Civil War, Halfon finds echoes in the stories of a woman he meets in Japan whose grandfather survived the atomic bombing of Hiroshima.

Through exquisite prose and intricate storytelling, Halfon exposes the atrocities of war and the effect that silence and extreme violence have on family and identity.

It's time for a savory soirée--but something sinister is stewing--in Raquel V. Reyes's second delightful Caribbean Kitchen Mystery, perfectly delicious for fans of Mia P. Manansala.

Fall festivities are underway in Coral Shores, Miami. Cuban-American cooking show star Miriam Quiñones-Smith wakes up to find a corpse in her front yard. The body by the fake tombstone is the woman that was kicked out of the school's Fall Festival the day before.

Miriam's luck does not improve. Her passive-aggressive mother-in-law puts her in charge of the Women's Club annual gala. But this year, it's not canapes and waltzes. Miriam and her girlfriends-squad opt for fun and flavor. They want to spice it up with Caribbean food trucks and a calypso band. While making plans at the country club, they hear a volatile argument between the new head chef and the club's manager. Not long after, the chef swan dives to his death at the bottom of the grand staircase.

Was it an accident? Or was it Beverly, the sous chef, who is furious after being passed over for the job? Or maybe it was his ex-girlfriend, Anastasia? 

Add two possible poisonings to the mix and Miriam is worried the food truck fun is going to be a major crash. As the clock ticks down and the body count goes up, Miriam's life is put in jeopardy. Will she connect the dots or die in the deep freeze? Foodies and mystery lovers alike will savor the denouement as the truth is laid bare in this simmering stew of rage, retribution, and murder.

A deadly, incurable disease creeps silent through Chattanooga. And its victims aren't random.

When inexplicable human rabies cases appear in Tennessee, disease ecologist Letty Duquesne jumps at the chance to trace the virus back to its source. But the closer Letty gets to finding the outbreak's origin, the further someone will go to stop her.

With an unwanted promotion threatening to take Letty far from the field work she loves, this outbreak feels like her last chance to make a difference.

The spillover of zoonotic diseases to the human population is on the rise and violent animal attacks—like the one that killed her sister—are becoming all too common.

Something in nature has gone very wrong.

Local authorities would rather she go home, but Letty can track a source animal like no one else. With the help of disgraced detective, Andrew Marsh, Letty follows the virus's epidemiological trail. But her every move is watched. And the source animal is closer than she thinks.

Knot doesn’t remember how they came to live with Bigman, nor whether their name is actually Knot. Bigman calls, and Knot answers. Not a boy. Not a girl. Not getting any bigger over the past twenty years.

John Bigman makes enough money selling good weather to those who believe his claims of magic to keep the bank from taking the unfinished lighthouse where he lives in an uneasy truce with Knot. Bigman still bleeds where Knot bit him years ago, and they still sometimes try to stab him during arguments.

Most of the time, the two get along. Knot watches tv in their room. Bigman plays video games in his library. They go fishing, with Knot catching most of the fish and Bigman dozing among the mangroves that have infested their beach.

But Bigman is getting old. His control over Knot has been slipping. His strength was barely enough to foil Knot’s last attempt at running away. That was before Knot found allies, who have their own reasons for wanting Knot to escape from the lighthouse.

Six months after meeting Lucifer himself and nearly falling victim to a serial killer, Dr. Kayla Winslow is still struggling to pull together the pieces of her shattered life.

For fans of Katrine Engberg and Lars Kepler, the second chilling novel in Anne Mette Hancock's #1 bestselling Danish crime series is a psychological whirlwind that explores the nature of truth and what it means when we can no longer trust what we know to be real.

When 10-year-old Lukas disappears from his Copenhagen school, police investigators discover that the boy had a peculiar obsession with pareidolia--a phenomenon that makes him see faces in random things. A photo on his phone posted just hours before his disappearance shows an old barn door that resembles a face. Journalist Heloise Kaldan thinks she recognizes the barn--but from where?

When Luke's blood-flecked jacket is found in the moat at Copenhagen's Citadel, DNA evidence points to Thomas Strand, an ex-soldier suffering from severe PTSD. But then Strand turns up dead in his apartment, shot in the head execution style.

What did the last person to see Lukas really witness that morning in the school yard? Was it really Lukas, or an optical illusion? Can you ever truly trust your eyes?

Only she who holds the key will unearth the secrets of the Remembering Tree.

Still trying to pick up the pieces after the sudden death of her husband, Gemma Clayborn takes her fifteen-year-old daughter, Opal, and heads for Beacon Shores, a tiny coastal town in the state of Washington. Her daughter is angry at the world, and Gemma is simply trying to survive. She plans to restore Moonstone House, the ancestral estate left to her by her grandmother.

When Gemma arrives in Beacon Shores, Moonstone House immediately captures her heart. She remembers spending summers there as a child, back before her mother decided they could never go there again. Eric Johnson, the contractor restoring the home, piques Gemma’s interest as well. She feels a strange connection to him, almost as if they already know one another.

What intrigues Gemma the most, however, is the strange and beautiful redbud tree in the front yard. The tree seems to know things, whispering to her, urging her to uncover the secrets of the past. The discovery of an old journal leads Gemma down the rabbit hole, into the pages of her great-great-grandmother’s life, one that eerily parallels her own. She begins to unravel the story of the women in her family, a history she could have never imagined.

Will Gemma figure out the secrets of Moonstone House before it’s too late? Or are some things better left buried in the pages of the journal?

This is not a typical sci-fi story for there is no violence in this story, nor is there a battle with the "dark" or predatory behavior. You will however, find an alternate reality filled with surprises, curious imaginary beings and such, enough to bring out humor, thoughtful struggles and enlightening possibilities.

The night the Prince of the East razed her village, Raina Bloodgood’s life changed forever. Forced into someone else’s war—and into the arms of the Witch Collector, Alexus Thibault—Raina discovered that everything she believed was wrong, and that she was capable of far more than anyone imagined.

Now, the Prince of the East has taken the Frost King as a pawn in his war against the Summerlands, causing Alexus’s life to hang in the balance. To thwart the prince’s endgame and prevent the Tiressian empire from returning to an age of gods, Raina, Alexus, and a band of Northlanders race against the sands of time to reach a mystical desert land where merciless assassins lurk around every corner.

In the midst of tragedy, Raina and Alexus fight to stay together and alive, all while a nefarious presence follows them straight to the jeweled gates of the Summerland queen’s citadel—the City of Ruin. With much to fear, it’s the terror of a past she shouldn't remember that Raina cannot cast from her dreams.

A past that's determined to find her. One way or another.

"She realized there was peace right here in the midst of this heavenly sort of place, despite the unpredictable storm churning around her family."

For generations, Ellie Hostetler's family has tended their Lancaster County orchard, a tradition her twin brother, Evan, will someday continue. Yet when Evan's draft number is called up in the lottery for the Vietnam War, the family is shocked to learn he has not sought conscientious objector status, despite their Old Order Amish belief in non-resistance. The faraway war that has caused so much turmoil and grief among their Englisher neighbors comes too close to home.

As Evan departs for boot camp, Ellie confides her disappointment to Sol Bontrager, the brother of her best friend and cousin to her new beau, Menno. In contrast to Evan, Sol is a conscientious objector. Despite Ellie's attraction to Menno, she finds herself drawn to Sol's steady presence as they work together in the orchard. Suddenly, it feels as if everything in Ellie's world is shifting, and the plans she held so dear seem increasingly uncertain. Can she and her family find the courage to face a future unlike any they could have imagined?

Crime reporter Evie Hartley was at the height of her career, but a series of ethical missteps cost her everything. Now, she’s working for a small-town newspaper’s culture section, trying to prove to everyone, especially herself, that she’s able to do her job by the book.

When there’s an opening for the crime beat, Evie jumps at the chance. And while she manages to impress her boss, she makes an enemy of the detective she played to get the inside scoop. Her methods may straddle the line between professional and underhanded, but they work, and Evie solves a case the police haven't been able to crack. Detective Marcus "Penn" Pennington reluctantly calls a truce and becomes her go-to police source as she investigates more crimes for the paper.

Evie’s thirst for the truth sets her on a dangerous path, and poking around in a cold case results in sinister anonymous threats. When she forms an alliance with someone who seems to know far more about the missing person’s disappearance than he should, Penn sticks to Evie like glue, blurring the lines between protection and possession. But even with a cop watching her back, Evie's willingness to do anything to get the story might just get her killed.

When infamous hot mess vampire Roxanne resurrects her deceased best friends, she's confronted by a dream-dwelling Guardian of the Underworld, who demands that she replace them in his afterlife with three equally nefarious creatures—or he'll drag her there instead.

Reunited with Medusa and Mx. Hyde, Roxanne and her macabre girl gang must become monster hunters themselves and fight for the future of their friendship.

Gory, sexy, silly, touching—Glorious Fiends asks who the real monsters are, and if the bonds that we think are solely human are really ours alone. This Hammer-inspired odyssey is a nostalgic trip through '80s horror tropes—with modern sensibilities.

PRAISE

"If Hellraiser and Netflix's Castlevania hooked up and had a trio of queer poly bad-ass lady babies.... well, hanging out with them probably still wouldn't be half as fun and scary and exciting as the wild ride that is Glorious Fiends."

—Sam J. Miller, author of The Blade Between and Boys, Beasts, & Men

Glorious Fiends is about accepting your friends for who they are, even if they be liars, murderers, and inconveniently horny. Stufflebeam engages us from the start with monsters at their gory best (or worst, depends), pairing unexpected humor with shocking imagery that will turn your giggle into a shriek.

—Chris Panatier, author of Stringers and The Phlebotomist

"An unapologetically blood-soaked and darkly humorous read."

—A. C. Wise, author of The Ghost Sequences

To some, Lily was just a beautiful little girl. To others, she was a freakish albino who ate live chickens in a freak show. Charles Darwin called her his impossible girl and tried in vain to classify her. P. T. Barnum called her his angel and tried to take advantage of her.

But the creature Barnum thought to turn into a money-making feature attraction is neither girl nor angel. She is something other, a species of unimaginable abilities, with the power to destroy—or save —our world. The power is hers alone, but only the strange blood coursing through her veins will decide when and how to unleash a power she struggles every day to control.

From the cold, barren shores of Tierra del Fuego and the voyage of H.M.S. Beagle to the bustling crowds of Victorian London, Lily's story—and her quest—unfolds in a thrilling historical fantasy for all ages from award-winning author Len Boswell.

Doctor Bernard Patten―erstwhile Memory Fellow of the New York Academy of Medicine, founder of the first memory clinic at the Neurological Institute of New York, and author of scientific papers on memory therapy and memory problems―wants to help you to a better mind, a better memory, and, consequently, a better life.

Memory degradation happens to everyone. Even people in good health forget where they park their cars or leave their reading glasses. Some draw a blank entering their PIN. Is the stove off? Cat fed? Door locked? Did you take your medication? Not sure? How come? These memory problems only get worse as we get older unless we employ mental exercises to improve memory now.

Mountains of scientific research prove that mental exercise benefits the brain as much as physical exercise benefits the body. Mental gymnastics boosts brainpower, augments memory, and (in some cases) actually increases brain size. It can help prevent dementia, mental decline, and the much-feared Alzheimer's disease.

Making Mental Might does not aim to increase your IQ or show you how to get smarter. It offers the proper mental training to look, sound, and perform worlds better. These techniques have helped hundreds of students at Rice University's School of Continuing Studies under Doctor Patten improve their working memory. They can do the same for you.

Atlantic City, 1982

One cold December night, sixteen-year-old Abby Lowell and her foster sister are rescued by a mysterious and deadly figure in rags and a large hood. Abby never learns his name and never sees his face, but he's obviously good with that black-bladed knife of his, very good.

Abby dubs him "Rags."

But Rags isn't done, not by a long shot. With her foster family under threat from the ruthless Bernards, who are determined to tear down their dilapidated hotel in favor of yet another casino, Abby finds herself in desperate need of a defender. A part of her is relieved when Rags returns to protect her again. And again. And again.

Now, with an army of thugs and a terrifying Voodoo witch hunting her, Abby must not only understand the dark truth behind Rags. She must accept that truth, frightening as it is, before it's too late.

Everyone knows that a girl living a life of drudgery is meant to be saved by a prince—but what if one never arrives?

Donella has always dreamed of being rescued from her miserable life working in her father’s tavern, and when the fairy godmother offers to help her in exchange for one simple task, she readily accepts.

After all, how hard can it be to retrieve the heart of the Dead Prince?

Harder than she thinks, because the Dead Prince is very much alive and likes his heart right where it is.

Too scared to break her deal with the fairy godmother, Donella knows that outwitting her is the only way to save the Dead Prince’s life, but how can a humble waitress beat the wickedest witch of them all?

With her curiously intelligent pet wolf at her side, Donella will have to deal with haughty nobles, fight her way through a labyrinth, and overcome her own demons if she wants to save the prince and make her dream come true.

The Demi-Wolf and the Hunter is a fun, fairytale adventure that blends a less-murderous Macbeth with a platonic Beauty and the Beast retelling to make something completely new.

Series: Systema Paradoxa (9)

There are creatures lurking in our world. Obscure creatures long relegated to myth and legend. They have been sighted by a lucky-or unlucky-few, some have even been photographed, but their existence remains unproven and unrecognized by the scientific community.

These creatures, long thought gone, have somehow survived; creatures from our nightmares haunting the dark places. They swim in our lakes and bays, they soar the night skies, they hunt in the woods. Some are from our past, and some from other worlds, and others have always been with us-watching us, fearing us, hunting us.

These are the cryptids, and Systema Paradoxa tells their tales.

***

When a sudden trail of death and desolation sweeps through south and central Texas, elements of the case trigger an alert with a division of the FBI that tracks possible supernatural influence.

Agent Chimalis Burton, a specialist in cryptids of the Americas, has a history of vanquishing such monstrous creatures. When she is assigned the case, she scrambles to find answers before the situation worsens.

Evidence begins to suggest an evil that has festered for centuries; an evil that now rises to reclaim its power.

An evil that rests in the soulful eyes of a wolf.

1906. After a summer of successful pirate-treasure hunting, Lady Emily Scofield and her friends must hide the unprecedented discoveries they've made, thanks to the betrayal of her own family. Horrified by her brother, who will stop at nothing to prove himself to their greedy father, Emily is forced to take a stand against her family—even if it means being cut off entirely.

Bram Sinclair, Earl of Telford, is fascinated with tales of King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table—an interest he's kept mostly hidden for the last decade. But when a diary is unearthed on the islands that could lead to a secret artifact, Bram is the only one able to piece the legends together. As Bram and Emily seek out the whereabouts of the hidden artifact, they must dodge her family and a team of archeologists. In a race against time, it is up to them to decide what makes a hero worthy of legend. Is it fighting valiantly to claim the treasure... or sacrificing everything in the name of selfless love?

Rook is based on the true story of Al Nussbaum. To his unsuspecting wife, Lolly, Al is a loving, chess playing, family man. To J. Edgar Hoover, he is the most cunning fugitive alive. Al is the mastermind behind a string of east coast robberies that has stumped law enforcement. After his partner, one-eyed Bobby Wilcoxson, kills a bank guard and wounds a New York City patrolman, Al is identified as one of the robbers and lands on top of the FBI's most wanted list. He is forced to flee his hometown of Buffalo, New York as the FBI closes in and Lolly learns of her husband's secret life.

While Al assumes another identity and attempts to elude the police, Lolly is left alone to care for their infant daughter and adjust to her new life as 'The Bank Robber's Wife'. Friends, family, and federal agents all pressure Lolly to betray Al. While Lolly struggles at home financially, with unrelenting FBI agents, and her conscience, Al and Bobby continue to rob banks, even as Bobby grows more mentally unstable and dangerous.

Al has only two goals: avoid capture and steal enough money to start a new life with his family. Returning to gather his wife and baby is suicidal, but as Al said, he'd only stick his neck in the Buffalo noose for Lolly.

England, AD 1471. Henry Tudor’s drop of royal blood had never mattered, considering the scores of noblemen with stronger claims to the throne. But when Edward IV becomes king during the Wars of the Roses, that drop threatens Henry’s life and forces him into exile.

Though his mother labors to restore his position, Henry would rather spend his days with his beloved Jehane, a quick-witted Breton widow, than reclaim a title that promises only further hardship. Content with humble pleasures far from the dangers of court, Henry enjoys a simple life of anonymity.

Yet, his enemies continue to conspire against him. Survival may require embracing the very birthright that drove him into exile, though it threatens his happiness with Jehane. The path to safety is littered with tangled conspiracies, narrow escapes, and a Welsh dragon banner fluttering over an English battlefield.

Bosworth earned Henry Tudor a crown, but the trials of a forgotten fourteen-year exile transformed a penniless fugitive into the man who ended the Wars of the Roses.

Legendary father and son Texas Rangers Larry and John Slade, brought law and order to Central Texas for over 72 years.

Thundering through the pages of American history, between 1835 and 1916, the old-school tough Slade men came to occupy an intriguing place in the gripping tales of the Old West.

Serving as a Ranger in the Texas Revolution, and in ferocious battles against the Apache, Comanches, and Mexican outlaws, Larry Slade gained fame for his lightning quick cross draw of his two Colts. He was the ultimate frontiersman and even rode with the noted explorer Kit Carson.

His son John Slade served with the Rangers in Austin, Texas. After proving his mettle on several missions, the young man returned home only to find his parents had perished in a freak accident.

In time, he married his sweetheart. But tragedy strikes. And on his path for revenge, Slade comes into contact with the Hatcher gang. He tangles with the outlaws, and his remarkable skill with a gun is his only hope of settling the score against overwhelming odds.

Seeking justice and personal redemption, John Slade cements his father's legacy with his own equally dogged determination to fight until the end.

Natalia has embraced the choice of her people. She is honored to have been chosen as their human sacrifice and will surrender her life to the Gods. She awaits the call of her people for that final moment, living a life of solitude until it’s time. But then her death is stolen from her—she is kidnapped by her own guards and forced into an eternal slumber.

Hundreds of years later—now—Natalia is woken in a world that’s completely unfamiliar. The archaeological team was not looking for her. They were looking for Estancia, the lost city of gold, and Natalia agrees to guide them.

While they journey through the treacherous jungles of Argentina, Natalia stumbles upon the alarming truth of her past. Her life’s prophecy must be fulfilled to restore balance to her people, but only she can decide whether that balance is worth her death.

Witch Christy Adams has the magical ability to create shields, but she’s still searching for her place among the Daughters of Women coven. When she comes face to face with an immortal in the forest who is a betrayer of her kind, she sounds the alarm but none of the Nephilim can see or sense him. Curious, she doesn’t betray him and finds herself oddly attracted to him.

When new demi-god, Belial, swoops in and claims Christy as his own, no one in the coven blinks an eye at the Nephilim. They’ve grown accustomed to their nature and hunger.

But Belial only seems to muddle her thoughts with his magical allure and she questions his intention, especially when she can’t stop thinking about the immortal she met in the forest.

When it’s discovered that the veil between this world and that of the gods of the old has been torn, Christy is the only one who can repair it. With no mentor, no training, and no help, can she do the impossible?

Graphic, gritty, bloodthirsty, steamy, and uniquely original, The Witchbound Saga is unlike any other horror/paranormal romance series you’ve ever read and is recommended for mature readers.

This is book five in the Witchbound novels. These books may be read independently.

In January 1971, Colin, an officer from British Special Branch recruits eighteen-year-old Sam Nathan to infiltrate a group of student extremists who they believe are planning a terrorist attack in Sam's home city of Glasgow, Scotland.

Sam foils the plot, narrowly escaping being murdered by one of the gang named Max Jordan. In gratitude for his efforts, he is invited to the prestigious event that the gang tried to ravage. During the celebrations, Sam is introduced to a statesman who inadvertently reveals to him highly classified intelligence. This information leads Sam to understand the true motive behind the assassination of President John F. Kennedy.

The details are so horrifying that he cannot reveal them for fear of ridicule, or worse, for the fact he might be believed. Concerned that making his knowledge public might endanger his life, Sam keeps these facts to himself, intending never to disclose them.

However, an episode in 2007 changes his mind. Sam finally decides to write about his adolescent experiences, his actions unwittingly threatening to destroy global alliances and bring him face to face with his nemesis who has waited half a lifetime to exact his revenge.

Series: Kim Brady (3)

Shortly after her arrival at Brooklyn North Homicide, Detective Kim Brady is assigned a seven-month-old rape and murder of a 14-year-old girl. While the initial investigation focused on a teen suspect, DNA evidence, as well as the killer's signature, establishes that the killer was also responsible for several older crimes, including the 1963 case Kim's grandfather was working when he was killed. She is chasing a killer who's been on the loose for fifty-five years.

Kim's investigation takes place against the backdrop of a special mayoral election pitting a "law and order" state senator against the "defunder" acting mayor. A protest group is accusing the police of letting the case go cold because the victim is a Latina and stoking protests that result in arson and the killing of a firefighter. While Kim awaits the result of DNA analysis, her headquarters receives two bomb threats and the killer strikes again... and again... and again.

Series: A Season of Clocks (1)

Deep in the heart of greenest Pennsylvania lies the town of Blackgale. It is a place of great wealth, rustic charm and natural beauty, as well as diligent, hardworking citizens. Bright, inventive girls are especially prized, and are molded into brilliant young women at the world-renowned Blackgale School for Girls.

Cordelia Paredes is not, decidedly, the ideal Blackgale citizen. She is a fifteen-year-old delinquent who is on the verge of dropping out of the Blackgale School for Girls, and harbors dreams of fleeing to somewhere that's less of a perfectionist headache. But then, one day, her best friend Persie just... vanishes. Poof. Gone. No warning whatsoever. And if that isn't bad enough, all of Blackgale's residents - from teachers, to local officials, to Persie's own parents - are oddly unconcerned.

Consequently, Cordelia must take it upon herself to find Persie, digging not only into Blackgale's mysteries, but into the personal stories of the little town's most mysterious residents. As more secrets are uncovered, formerly affable friends and neighbors start to turn hostile, and, in some cases, even murderous. Will Cordelia be able to discover what happened to Persie, or will her efforts lead to nothing more than a premature demise?

The book “Battle for the American Mind” is the untold story of the Progressive plan to neutralize the basis of our Republic – by removing the one ingredient that had sustained Western Civilization for thousands of years.

We need to recover a lost philosophy of education – grounded in virtue and excellence – that can arm future generations to fight for freedom. It’s called classical Christian education. The odds are that you might have never heard about it. In this case: Relax, you’re not alone!

Daan’s debut novel Night’s Reign is not your average Fantasy novel. Featuring two disabled protagonists, and focusing more on character development than plot, it’s best described as a work of literary fiction in a fantasy setting.

A floundering priest. A woman in a wheelchair. An ancient curse.

On the run from a cursed king and his army of assassins, priest Niels Bosch seeks sanctuary in rural Briscona. What he gets is a barrage of intimate and unsettling questions from his new cantor, Beldenka Nadinov. Questions he can’t risk answering.

Accompanied by his friend and bodyguard Mikhandor, and Bel’s protector Leks, the pair set out to challenge the mad king. But Bel has a dark secret of her own – a secret that could endanger the entire mission.

When Niels unearths the chilling truth and realises there’s much more at stake than just his life, it’s too late to turn back. He must lift the curse and end Night’s reign forever.

Series: Syn City Shifters (1)

Who knew dying would be the easy part of my day?

It all started the night Chase, my mountain lion shifter ex, reappeared. We’d had a whole good girl/bad boy romance going until he abandoned me a decade ago. I’d gone to Syn City for a little fun before being trapped in my hometown forever.

Then I was murdered by a maniac and my night really fell apart.

But somehow, Chase managed to strike a deal on a blood oath and bring me back as a Fury. He wants a second chance at romance, claiming we’re fated mates.

Now, I have to deal with the guy I thought I’d never see again, find and punish my murderer, and participate in a giant supernatural roller derby (long story)—all while trying to earn my wings.

And if I fail? I’ll end up dead. Again…only this time, it’ll be permanent.

All I can say is that it’s a good thing hell hath no fury like, well, an actual Fury.

Three Short Stories Starring Three Overbearing Ghosts

If you prefer your dictators, celebrities, and historical figures to remain silent from beyond the grave, then this is not the book for you. If, however, you’re okay with famous ghosts being greedy, ambitious, and yes, more than a little pushy, you will thoroughly enjoy the afterlife tales of:

Queen Cleopatra of Egypt, whose journal reveals a shocking 2,000-year-old secret she has taken with her to the tomb.

Colonel Muammar Gaddafi, the former Libyan president whose unrequited crush on a former US secretary of state culminates in revenge, greed, and a host of dubious fashion choices.

Steve Jobs, the Apple co-founder who, with the help of a hallucinogenic drug, plans to reconnect with his estranged father before moving on to his next billion-dollar project.

"Victoria Schroeder’s Cleopatra’s Eternal Journal is a whimsical trio of globe-spanning ghost stories. Cleopatra’s spirit wryly observes major historical events over two millennia while she waits for archaeologists to discover her tomb. Colonel Gaddafi nurses an unlikely infatuation with Dr. Condoleezza Rice ardent enough to survive his death and which leads to astonishing dialogues between the two power brokers; and Steve Jobs’ ghost haunting Kyoto, seeking wisdom and maybe inspiration for some new product ideas. Schroeder’s stories are an imaginative weaving of history, levity, and humor." —Dan Geddes, author of The Satirist: America’s Most Critical Book

Series: Planet Tamers (1)

Humanity is on the brink of becoming a multi-planet species at last!

The military is leading the way in Earth’s transformational new era with its flagship vessel the NCS Neil deGrasse Tyson under joint command of the Army (the soldiers) and Navy (the scientists).

For Captain Joshua Halley, commanding the Tyson’s soldiers, the “Titan Mission” began even before he was born. He will be among the first humans to help terraform a planetary body for off-world human colonization. Unlike Luna and Mars, Titan will be “Earth Two” and life will be able to breathe its air and live and thrive under a real atmosphere created by Earth “genesis architects.”

But that fateful night, Halley received the call.

Something has happened. Everyone aboard Earth Alliance’s orbital space station in the Main Asteroid Belt between Mars and Jupiter has vanished – including Halley’s father.

The historic mission of a lifetime, under the watchful eyes of all of humanity, or leave to rescue one’s own father. The decision is simple for this soldier.

But there are no coincidences even in the sea of space. The “Titan Mission” is in jeopardy. But by whom? And why?

Spaceship battles, explosions, gun-fire aboard space stations, and worse. None of these things are supposed to happen in real life, even for a seasoned soldier like Halley.

Join the first entry in the thrilling military sci-fi PLANET TAMERS series from author Austin Dragon.

Father’s Day is the first-in-series!

England, Within the Pale, 1581

Doctor John Dee, court mage and advisor to the Queen, didn’t need a new apprentice.

Waking on a cold January morning to find his friend and neighbor, the Countess of Derby, on his doorstep was one surprise; to find her with a young girl in tow was another. An orphaned, half-Moorish girl, Amy Bassano, for whom a whole new world – a world of spycraft and sedition, of faeries and foul play, of magic and murder – was about to open. A world where a youthful Shakespeare – or, rather, the person who will become ‘Shakespeare’– is just starting out.

At least, thought Dee, she was interesting…

Salvage yard operator and part-time sleuth Tak Sweedner is asked by a buddy, Roque Zamarripa, to investigate a murder. Tak says OK and for his trouble is assaulted with a tire iron. Then he's run off the side of a cliff—the investigation really goes downhill at that point!

Tak calls up gal-pal Emma to help him and soon discovers his feelings for the woman go beyond palling around. When she asks him to give up his investigation and concentrate on her, Tak balks. She might better have asked a bulldog to give up its bone. It would be like quitting, Tak said, and he wasn't a quitter.

Eventually, the murderer gets the drop on Tak, Roque and Emma, then escapes after a shootout. Tak comes away from the deadly confrontation even deeper in love with Emma. Can this blue-collar crime-solver hang in there to get the bad guy… AND win his girl?

They Whisper in my Blood is a moving love story, a sweeping tale, a panorama of a Portuguese-Indian family’s history told through a poignant refrain that is this clan’s nemesis. It screams across time and continents. There’s murder, girl-child trafficking, a torrid mixed-race affair and homophobia, all of which beget intrigue, sensuousness, heartache . . . but always hope. The characters – visceral, impassioned and deeply flawed – stay with you long after the last page is turned.

The Portuguese were the first European colonizers of India and ruled Portuguese India – Portuguese Estado da Índia – for four and a half centuries. Their legacy endures even today in the lives of their descendants, one of whom is differential, intelligent, beautiful Perpetua – Pippa – Cabral, the heartsick protagonist in this novel.

Fans of authors like Arundhati Roy, Delia Owens and Richard Powers will love this multi-generational story. Nature’s spontaneous beauty is reverenced in sentences that weave lush imagery, so evocative one can almost smell the spice; sentences that resound with stunning prose crafted seemingly by a poet. Sculpted with as bold a hand, is the plot which delivers one hell of a punch.

The ten stories in this anthology shine each at its own speed of light—dimmer, hidden deep in the darkness, or brighter, burning faster. Through tales of secrets, loss, and identity, empathy illuminates the path, lengthening the shadows of the human emotions laid bare. When a young boy collects secrets like another boy would collect rocks or stamps, darkness envelops the man he becomes. When a young mother accepts a ride from a stranger, the truth about her situation is revealed to her. A penumbra outlines the dark core of one mother's loss as another mother's gain. Through stories of divorce, memory loss, struggles with mental health, and estrangement, loss reveals what we are capable of doing to cope, to recover, to heal, and what we can become as a result.

The icecaps melted and the water consumed the shorelines but New York City still stands. All four boroughs prosper thousands of feet over the old metropolis hastily protected by walls. Proper citizens live above in a beautiful, protective dome on concrete stilts and criminals serve life below in the polluted, walled ghost of a city.

Richard Smith, a street-sweeper, enjoyed life in NYC with his wife until their deformed, life-supported child is medically terminated at birth by the government, pulling Richard's soul into darkness.

When he receives a distressing message from a group known as Right-To-Life, Richard sinks lower. His child and many others may be alive and living with the criminals below in old New York. He needs to find his son and there is only one way possible to confirm if it's true.

What he finds may be more than what society above can fathom.

A tense, wild ride of a sci-fi dystopian novel from the author of the Blunt Force Kharma series.

1970s New York: a mecca for musicians, artists, and writers drawn to its vibrant energy and possibilities, but also a place of grinding poverty and urban decay, where crime and violence were everyday realities and hope danced with despair.

In Street People Portfolio, David J. Bookbinder exposes the grit and splendor of a city at its most raw and real, creating a graphic testament to this time, this place, and to the haunting people who inhabited it. In portraits so vivid that they fairly leap off the page and into our psyches, he delivers the street in the wholeness of its violence, its sexuality, and its poignance.

Experience this strikingly illustrated account of this turbulent period and its forgotten people.

Witness invisible New York made visual.

Nadia’s Shoes is a children’s picture book about a friendship that started at the fence of a hospital. Nadia was on one side of the fence. She was in the hospital yard in a wheelchair. Her parents died in an air attack and Nadia was the only one to survive. Her dream was to walk again. Zoya was on the other side of the fence. She was begging on the sidewalk just outside the hospital doors. She had no relatives. Her dream was to buy a pair of shoes for the coming winter. The two girls become fast friends and tell each other stories and sing songs. One day, the mailman comes and delivers a package to Nadia.

What happens next is proof that in every human heart there is a very precious corner. A corner that people have to nurture, protect and grow as it is the priceless corner of goodness and selflessness.

Bold. Authentic. Irreverent.

An odd book of wisdom for new adults, graduates, and those who love them.

The heart attack I suffered on my teenage daughter's birthday was a wake-up call. Afterwards, I started feverishly drafting a book of wisdom for her, in case I didn't make it to her high school graduation.

What began as a manual for her grew into something even more valuable. The Odd Dad Guide begged to arrive and flowed as catharsis filling a void of unspoken need. Originally intended for my new adult, those of all ages who partook said the rules resonated with them as well. The stories and perspectives here will expose young people to complicated lessons. It is neither pretty nor easy for me to share some of these, but those of us who are more seasoned know that truth is both painful and freeing.

I wish someone had given this tome to me thirty years prior. Now I offer it to you and your families with a hope that your new adult might live a life of authenticity and boldness that represents their true selves.

=============================

Quotes from early readers

"Clearly, this book needed to be written. I'd give The Odd Dad Guide to every new parent out there. I was worried it was going to be a book for dads only… because of the title. As a single mom whose kids have no dad, I began reading it with bias, but the advice isn’t gender specific. I appreciated that."

"I enjoyed the perspective on approaching reality without the sugar. These chapters did a great job of making me reflect and apply this wisdom to my life."

"In honesty, I have been a dad since I was 19, then became a single father and divorcee at 26. I did what I felt was necessary to raise my daughter to be a good citizen and provide her an opportunity for a better life. Life hasn't really been about me for years. The book is full of honest information that young and old people need to hear! Thanks for exposing the behaviors where we become prisoners of our own obligations and expectations that we can neither keep nor fulfill."

"The book approaches broad life experiences not from the fluffy, squishy, touchy-feely way commonly presented, but from a realistic, 'tell it like it really is' approach."

"I read with ease through 28 chapters, interested, smirking, chuckling, nodding, absorbing the whole way. References to zombies and marbles, toxic positivity, faith and abusers, politics and opinions and dissent all hit the mark for me. All the chapters are things I want to share with my daughter if she will listen. As an avid reader, maybe she will listen to these points by reading them in your book."

"The personal stories really resonate with a shared 'dad' wisdom."

"The Odd Dad Guide resonated with me completely. Such great advice. Don’t live someone else’s dream. I like to think that life's goal is fulfillment, but the author's take on contentment is more to the point. Everyone needs these words of wisdom."

"The author reflects on life, what he has learned, mistakes he has made, and how to be an individual. Irreverent without being crass or juvenile. The Odd Dad Guide eviscerates bullshit arguments and lies, and reminds us of our own mistakes and when childish illusions got wiped away. It's good to read this now as I turn 50 and do some reflecting. The writing is tight with small chapters that stick to the script without bloviating."

If You Consider Time the Most Precious Asset in Your Life and Therefore Want to Read the Essentials of a Book Presented in a Clear and Concise Summary Without Missing Any Highlights of the Original Book, Then Read On…

Note to readers: This is a summary of Marc Leibovich’s book “Thank You for Your Servitude: Donald Trump’s Washington and the Price of Submission” and not the original book designed to enhance your reading experience!

About This Summary!

The book “Thank You for Your Servitude” is Mark Leibovich’s unflinching account of the moral rout of a major American political party, tracking the transformation of Rubio, Cruz, Graham, and their ilk into the administration’s chief enablers, and the swamp’s lesser lights into frantic chasers of the grift. What would these politicos do to preserve their place in the sun, or at least the orbit of the spray tan? What would they do to preserve their “relevance”? Almost anything, it turns out. Trump’s savage bullying of everyone in his circle, along with the singular command of his political base, created a dangerous culture of submission in the Republican Party. Meanwhile, many of the most alpha of lapdogs happily conceded to Mark Leibovich that they were “in on the joke.” As Lindsey Graham told the author, his supporters in South Carolina generally don’t read The New York Times, and they won’t read this book, either. All that cynicism, shading into nihilism, led to a country truly unhinged from reality, and to the events of January 6, 2021. It’s a vista that makes the Washington of This Town seem like a comedy of manners in comparison.

Why You Should Choose Essential Reads!

Essential Reads offers an in-depth look into the book by Marc Leibovich, “Thank You for Your Servitude”. This summary book breaks down all the key points, takeaways, and facts in “Thank You for Your Servitude” so that the reader gets an overview quickly of the most relevant insights of the original book.

This way, you will learn the key points, takeaways, and lessons to enhance your knowledge and start discussions without missing any highlights of the original book – PROMISED!

A little tale of trial and error. Okay, mostly error.

Duncan and Maya Small have just moved to an out-of-the-way town filled with odd characters, quirky customs, and a power-obsessed local official who one day hopes to be declared emperor. Duncan is sharp enough to know something needs to change, and delusional enough to believe he's the one to make it happen. The only thing standing in his way are feral ponies, radical seniors, common sense, and Duncan's inability to do anything without a list.

Small Stories: A Perfectly Absurd Novel, is a tale of power, bake sales, manipulation, the Welcome Wagon, and diabolical forces at work in the shadows (mostly because they can't afford to pay the light bill), although the Smalls soon discover nothing is at it seems. One thing is certain, however – there's something funny going on.

Socrates is singing poetic verses to the guests of a banquet, telling them everything he’s learned about love from a mysterious woman named Diotima. The gods then collapse time. Athens in 2022 is chaotic, taken over by a dangerous riot. Two young lovers, reincarnations of the ancients, speak of the Ancient Greek types of love: Eros, Filia, Filoxenia, Philautia, Storgi, Pragma and the ultimate: Agapi. Self-love, the love of the stranger, friendship and erotic love all collide with statues of Aphrodite, protestor's chants and the Parthenon's steps, as Chaos and Cosmos watch on.

Agapi & Other Kinds of Love is hip-hop historical fiction, an epic verse novel set in modern and ancient Athens. Inspired by Plato’s The Symposium, Luka Lesson’s first narrative work is a potent and captivating adventure into an age-old phenomenon: love.

Series: The Cynnahu Saga (1)

A scream cut across the sky...

Long ago a horrific war was fought between the native Dragonkin and invading humanity, a war that shattered into islands the continent on which they struggled. Now the descendants of the victorious humans must face a different yet still very old threat as the mireborn Naga, the snake-folk of Nag Isle, are again amassing their Black Fleet to send against them. An ancient prophecy speaks of a time when the Archipelago of Cynnahu must fight its Last War against the Naga, a time when five individuals - Traveler, Orphan, Survivor, Student, and Lord - will set sail to rediscover the secret of the Elder Song.

Myrriden, the footsore mage and single father.
Sakura, an orphaned and homeless girl seeking vengeance.
Volcan Darkrod, the enigmatic Fire Mage.
Emrys, Myrriden's nervous son.
Archmage Hoth, the unflappable Leader of the Cynnahu folk.

Guided by an ancient riddle recently uncovered by the famed Loremaster Aneirin, these chosen five must a run a race of swords, spells, and dusty scrolls - for while the Elder Song was crafted to summon the primeval power of the Dragonkin, it has, down to its very name, been forgotten. Will the courage and wits of two eleven-year-olds and three vastly different mages be enough to free purposefully hidden secrets from forces older than the Isles themselves and reunite the scattered Song while fighting a desperate war on land and sea? Only one thing is certain: humanity stands at doom's edge and time is against them.

The stories in The Guide to Being a Dictator’s Mistress are meant to capture a reader’s imagination and take the familiar, and unfamiliar, and provide for an enjoyable reading experience. In the title story and the companion story The Guide to Being a Dictator’s Body Double, characters who are caught in the orbit of those ruling with an iron fist have to find ways to survive. In In Character, a man finds himself in trouble after trying to translate the Batman we all know from the comic books and the movies to real life. And in the last story Alphabetica: The Other Side of Love, the slow disintegration of a marriage is laid bare as a couple comes to the realization that getting married was the easy part. As a range of normal, and somewhat normal, characters navigate familiar worlds, often with a slight twist, the stories aim to engage the full range of human emotion in a thought provoking, and unique, fashion.

Inspector Deighton has two years left until he is retirement eligible. It is all he can do to endure the crazy antics of the Police Superintendent. Then he lands an assignment to investigate floral arrangements with pig tails, snakes squirming under neck scarves and a bird tethered to a little girl's hat! The complainant is Lady Carmella, new in town. Deighton pays Lady Carmella a visit and hears her out. Her story sounds a bit familiar, and he realizes it's the Circus Troupe. He explains the people she saw were her neighbors, a retired circus troupe, engaging in stage pranks. He relates how their antics caused quite a commotion when they first moved to town. Lady Carmella wants to believe him.

Two days later, when the case returns to Deighton's assignment roster, Lady Carmella is unconscious. The craziness ramps up. Hijinx, hardened criminals, meat pies, racist violence, ex-KGB, blackmail, vigilantes, cockroaches, human cadavers, police corruption, beheaded sheepdogs, eugenics, candle light vigils, water hoses and greenhouses, all begin to emerge. Deighton needs to figure out what has been going on in the Town of Huffinfield. Not everyone wants the truth uncovered.

Hate crime, hate speech, hate as the plague of our times ravaging our networks and tirelessly targeting new victims... What makes it so prevalent? Is hate our natural tendency, an integral part of our most profound social instincts or simply another piece of evidence for the failure at anger management and controlling our hunger for power and influence? Can those who utilize hatred as a smart marketing tool be considered evil? Are those who categorically dismiss it as an untenable social tendency naive idealists or truly wise and virtuous leaders of mankind? What about those who defend it as a righteous fury? Was Aristotle correct in calling hatred noble? Is challenging social ills with negative emotions a legitimate response?

This new controversial study on the ethics of hatred - based as much on personal experience and reading of classics as on the most recent affairs such as the War in Ukraine, the abortion debate, and the Capitol Attack - explores the so familiar yet so often misunderstood topic of ill-will. Trying to crack the code of whether hatred can be justified, and whether those afflicted by it can ever be free, it offers a fresh individual perspective on one of the most troubling and oldest of all human sentiments.

1613. Without a family or a coin to her name, a dilapidated orphanage in the English municipality of Kaysford is all that Avis Papley has known in her ten years of life.

She's bound to open that locket around her neck.

Charles Stuart I is bound to stray from the stable Protestant monarchy his family has forged.

Although the two paths seem exclusive, there is much that entwines Avis with the young Stuart heir, and Avis gains a power far beyond the realm of politics.

A choice that seems to promise safety and riches will lead to more danger than the young woman could have ever imagined as she takes journeys with curious people to lands where the dead are given second chances.

Atrocious Immoralities is an extraordinary story that takes you on a journey of forgotten history, romance, and fast-paced action with a dash of Celtic mythology. With dialogue written in Middle English and a unique constructed language, it plunges you into an immersive and fascinating world.

My Girly Unicorn is an adventure in the colorful sky on rainbows, under rain clouds, and running along with rowdy young unicorns. This story takes readers through the world of young unicorns and their exciting games and antics. However, some unicorns do not treat a certain unicorn with kindness. When something dark interrupts their light-filled skies, a surprising character emerges as a resilient guide for hope and joy for the other unicorns. Readers will ride along on a vibrant coaster of joy, determination, and confidence in My Girly Unicorn.

It is a perfect book for all young readers because it incorporates powerful lessons of confidence, kindness, and resilience in the characters and throughout the plot. The girl unicorn resembles a strong character who, despite being left out of most of the other youthful games and activities, is proud of who she is regardless of how she looks to the other unicorns. This character even faces and surpasses a challenge that stumps the other unicorns, and this shows readers that resilience and confidence can be found in any creature no matter their looks or size.

Additionally, the book is doused in cotton-candy-colored clouds, vibrantly colored rainbows, and inviting terrain obstacles. The illustrations pair wonderfully with the story devoted to a certain unicorn’s appearance and the fun and exciting nature of being a young unicorn. Finally, the themes present in the book are prime lessons for young readers to recognize in literature that they can apply to their lives and their friends. Overall, My Girly Unicorn is a stellar and vibrant book just waiting at the edge of the rainbow for any young unicorn reader to experience!

EVERY SMALL-TOWN MYSTERY NEEDS THE WRIGHT DETECTIVE...

Tessa and the TSLR Detective Agency are back on the case for a sleuthy summer adventure!

The basketball team’s State Championship trophy is missing!

Teen super sleuth Tessa Wright and her TSLR Detective Agency are determined to bring the trophy home before eighth grade starts in the fall. At first glance, it should be easy, especially with the crime caught on video. But you could have knocked them over with a feather when the perpetrator is disguised as Greeneville Heights’ own Falcon mascot!

It's not like Tessa’s detective dad and the trusted Greeneville police force can swoop in to help. They’re too swamped with a relentless string of downtown break-ins, crippling local businesses.

The Falcon isn’t the only mystery circling Tessa’s head. It’s boys—specifically adorable emerald-eyed Mason Greene. Hanging out during summer vacation is a blast, but is it just as friends? Tessa is resolved to find out in the most sleuthy way possible: by putting Mason under her magnifying glass!

When she’s not training for the upcoming cross-country season, Tessa and her spunky new kitten cool off poolside. With so many suspects hovering, the case heats up. Instead of winging it, Tessa calls on her friends to investigate what connects them all. As the summer flies by and their carefree days are numbered, they must bring the trophy back to its rightful place in the case.

Readers who appreciate smart, sleuthy Nancy Drew mysteries, as well as the sweet friendship stories of The Baby-sitters Club, will enjoy this upper middle grade/lower young adult novel.

In Better Together, Psychotherapist Nicholas Rose gives his unique take on why we choose the people we do, what makes us happy together, what can go wrong and what we can do about it.

At the heart of any working relationship is a shared sense of communion and ease which reassures us that we are better being together. Life events and challenges often disturb this, and it is when this happens that conflict arises and we begin to look for what it is that we need to ‘fix’ – an attempt that often only increases conflict and pain.

The concepts in the book are brought to life through twelve stories, each one illustrating different aspects of relationships, what can go wrong and how to find a way forward. Meanwhile the end of the book, provides direction, structure, tools and techniques that offer you a way of thinking about your own relationships.

London kept changing, as rage became ageing.

I sobbed myself upright and looked for a message on my phone that wasn't there, seeing only a bedraggled dead flower dropped from a garland days before in the drain, and my reeking jeans and hearing the roar of wind and the rolling of orchestral drums like the cars rushing past.

Pete’s got good times. Good people. Good tunes. Good drugs. He’s got problems, too. The money is coming to the estate, and when the money comes in, the locals will have to get out, unless they can muster an impossible fight. But Pete’s got secrets; unrequited and dangerous lusts, and as austerity and gentrification start to tear terrible chunks out of life, the whole façade might come tumbling down, as the scaffolding goes up the towers.

Richie Demox’ debut full-length novel is as heartrending as it is hip, capturing perfectly the moment between hope and despair, youth and age, bohemia and desperate poverty.

True Crime from Shamus Award winner J.L. Abramo.

Homeland Insecurity is the story of two men accused of taking the lives of three fellow human beings—a fifteen-year-old girl in Mahwah, New Jersey and a pair of young police officers in El Segundo, California.

Two men born 8 days apart in 1934.

Two men who died 57 days apart in 2017.

Crimes committed 140 days apart in 1957.

At a time when Americans were beginning to feel less and less confident about the safety of their families.

One convicted murderer spent nearly 15 years on death row at the New Jersey State Prison in Trenton—continually professing his innocence.

The other perpetrator escaped detection for more than 45 years.

At the same time, Homeland Insecurity is an account of the hits and misses of the law enforcement agencies and the judicial institutions which—over the course of nearly five decades—eventually stumbled upon justice.

Finally, it is a look at the post-World War II American experience leading up to the murders in 1957, and the profound changes to come after.

When Rock n’ Roll, rebels without a cause, and catchers in the rye burst upon the American landscape.

When the fear of nuclear annihilation and real-life monsters crept into the national consciousness.

And when those three murders in 1957, and a growing sense of national insecurity, may have had mutual effect.

My mother loved the city, and it loved her. Until the Turn. Until leaving became our only hope of survival. She’s slipping away more each day. I can feel it. The tide threatens to take me with her, but I’d be lying if I said I’d rather be anywhere else—with Florence is where I belong.

Now uprooted and on the run, we have to choose: surrender to a new beginning and leave our delicate past behind, or salvage the remains and try to find our way back.

Either way, I just want to go home.

Predominantly, this work paints a portrait of a modern British prison, in this case HMP Rochester in Kent, England. After some brief anecdotes from Sloane’s life at the start to give context the author carves out some of the colourful characters he is locked up with and gives an up close and personal insight into that which is usually hidden from view within these establishments. Drugs, violence and madness are close companions with those behind these walls and the narrative describes an environment which is sometimes terrifying, sometimes tragic but also frequently funny as prisoners amuse themselves in comical ways in order to ease boredom.

Meet Marcus, dealing drugs to the whole wing but struggling with his own substance misuse issues. Meet Brad the burglar who keeps mice and spiders as pets. Meet Kempy, languid, handsome and frequently hilarious. And meet Peter, loved by all but bigoted beyond belief. Sloane, in prison with many of the friends he grew up with uses language which is not for the faint hearted and records faithfully for you the views anathema to the woke liberal left of today. He justifies this by saying it is real, it is simply truth but be warned that this book is not for the faint hearted.

“...a sweeping literary travelogue that evokes Kerouac’s On the Road and Salinger’s Catcher in the Rye…”

Hitchhiking and motorcycling are means to a destination, but you can’t outrun your demons.

Cast away by his first love and cast out by the military, Levi takes to the open road in search of absolute freedom. When tragedy strikes, will his freedom end?

Will the entanglement of love, the strings and attachments he’s disavowed, or his past mistakes drag him toward the traditional life he despises?

Farawayer is a sweeping literary travelogue that evokes Kerouac’s On the Road and Salinger’s Catcher in the Rye. The novel explores themes around racism, religion, love, and hatred. It is a lyrical, philosophical journey through the beauty of a country and its people; a snapshot in time.

“…the gripping scenes and interpersonal relationships in Billy’s work are a stroke of genius. And while I’m at it, this particular tale does have shreds of Vonnegut in the storytelling, which also kept me in the story.“ ***** Alex P, Vine Voice

"I found this strangely gripping...It's a reflection on the hopes and dreams within most of us, the struggle to live a better life than your parents, to find your own freedoms and to embrace the things that really matter." **** Zoe S

If you loved Amor Towles’ The Lincoln Highway, you’ll love Farawayer!

Joe and Cherie grew up in the same neighborhood, shared a mutual adolescent crush, and came from loving, if imperfect homes. As adolescents, both experienced life-changing trauma.

This is the story of how two young people negotiate the influences of their environment, and family and peer relationships, amidst societal and cultural change in the mid 1990's and early 2000's, a time flooded with sexual explicitness and morally ambiguous messages. These phenomena complicate Joe and Cherie's lives by playing on their individual vulnerabilities, especially in the face of corruption and cruelty. Once Joe and Cherie reconnect as adults, their past experiences and human frailties come back into play, rendering untenable prospects for their future.

Series: The Devil's Trill (2)

Six months after meeting Lucifer himself and nearly falling victim to a serial killer, Dr. Kayla Winslow is still struggling to pull together the pieces of her shattered life. Plagued by nightmares and scorned by her former colleagues, Kayla’s new reality would be hard enough even without the lingering devil who hasn’t abandoned his curiosity with her. But after an academic trip to Jordan to investigate a newly uncovered demonology artifact, Lucifer’s interest seems to be waning…and Kayla’s not sure if that’s a good thing or a bad thing.

“A compelling story of one man’s battle with his inner demons and his better angels, West of the Sound is equal parts gritty, heartbreaking, and hilarious.” —Stephen Parolini, author of Stolen Things

“Heartfelt and all too real. Gripping movement through a painful process, with revealing reflections on how he got there and whether a future is possible. Tough love.” —Thomas C. Gulbransen

B. Alexander Owen’s debut novel takes readers into the chaotic and drug-dependent world of Stiv Baker, a part-time writer, and long-time Oxycodone addict.

When Stiv’s monthly trip to the pharmacy goes terribly wrong, one disaster follows the next. With growing anxiety and the onset of withdrawals, he sees his life spinning out of control. He must pull out of the dangerous riptide of addiction or lose everything including his marriage.

Although drug addiction and recovery are part of the dramatic and emotional story of West of the Sound, the author writes an engaging portrait of today’s rational man willing to take responsibility for his actions.

It started as a mystery with the promise of romance ...

A chance meeting of two strangers in a deserted French hotel in the Mekong Delta starts them on a journey in search of elusive truths.

He is Anton Faraday, a successful British wildlife painter hunting down a skilled forger of his work in Vietnam, while fighting doubts about his own integrity as an artist; and she is Caroline Brinkley, a freelance journalist from New Jersey searching for her adoptive Vietnamese brother, while looking for a scoop that will provide her with credentials as a serious journalist.

Flirting with the idea of a romance, they travel together to the Northern Highlands, stumbling into a remote world gripped by fear and death. It is 2004, and the region is faced with an outbreak of SARS, the coronavirus known as Bird Flu.

As the epidemic spreads, their past lives combine to push them forward into the heart of a high-stakes international conspiracy far beyond their capacity to withstand, uncovering evidence of corrupt charities, unscrupulous drug companies, and foreign agencies.

With Vietnam’s history, landscape and culture as a backdrop, their voyage together becomes as much about the geography of their own spirits and emotions as it is about the country through which they travel, raising complex moral and ethical questions as their emerging love is tested by the corruption they’re forced to confront.

With timely echoes of John le Carré’s "The Constant Gardener," the author raises questions about Big Pharma and state collusion that have never been more relevant than today.

Such is the growing and sustained attack on our environment scientists have for a couple of decades warned us that the consequences of our abuse could trigger changes in our environment that would make life as we know it impossible for humanity to exist. But despite all this, as our government is in charge, we the masses do nothing. The extreme complexity of global environmental destruction becomes encapsulated in the simplistic sound bites of Climate Change or Global Warming and therefore a governmental issue. Easily ducked by ourselves as its impossible for us alone to affect the climate…

However, if you are Kleen this thinking is unacceptable.

Kleen is whenever you use your EGOR, our Evolutionary Gift of Reasoning, that puts Natural Law above Human Law and all its social constructs.

Becoming Kleen not only makes us aware of our personal part in exterminating our environment for those who create and control social structures and how to combat them but also, as important the non-actions we can take to destroy the structures associated with environmental destruction simply by withdrawing your financial or moral support from those structures. To no longer support, political orthodoxy, financial propaganda, Shakkler rhetoric is a death sentence to them all, the cost? A richer environment. A place where primitive capitalism will at first use its political power to destroy all opposition to its function, then when this route to its traditional mastery over the majority of people it will be replaced by obedient servitude, its rightful place in a democracy.

If we live Kleen and follow Kleen principles we can be the difference our planet requires, or more literally, desperately demands.

Preventing Her Shutdown is an inside look at what an ongoing caregiver spouse goes through in a desperate effort to keep his wife with Alzheimer's "connected." In Real Time there are very personal unloaded feelings, emotions expressed and actions taken, never confided to anyone while slowly losing my wife.

This book started out as a daily diary of how my wife's behavior was dramatically changing and how I was affected and began to relate to her differently. Writing helped me ventilate my deepest emotions and reactions in private as they were too personal to express to others. Somehow writing "alleviated" my continuous sorrow. Soon this diary turned into this book.

There are really no fixed "do this" and "do that" rules, as there are no two profile behavioral changes alike. Consequently, no one has the "exact key" as to how to respond to a family member with Alzheimer's radical behavioral changes. Personal historical habits and idiosyncrasies influence behavioral changes. Only experiences from others can be your guide. I describe these dramatic changes with my wife who is in the beginning of the advanced stages.

Many times I wonder what she is thinking or what her feelings are because now she doesn't speak at all. I only have her facial expressions or sounds. Is she happy? Is she sad? I never see sad expressions on her face so I never know if she is sad. I do see a straight face sometimes and when I do I try to provoke a smile or laughter just to be sure she is not sad. Does she know she is not well? Does she know how she was before? Does she remember her past? What I do to help her restore her past.

Then I realized "what about us", our 43 years of marriage, does she remember that past? She recognizes and knows me well but how far back? Did our marriage begin in 1979 or 2017 when she was diagnosed?

I wasn't sure where I was in her memory or how she sees me, as her friend or husband, so I felt I had to make sure she realized I was at least her “best friend.”

She doesn't speak at all. She expresses only some sounds and shows a lot of anxiety. This becomes a real challenge trying to figure out what she wants and how she feels. How do we communicate? How do I talk to her? How does she tell me what she wants or needs? We both learned how to interact with each other.

My reactions have always been intuitive in my desperate attempts to keep her “connected” with me, family and her surroundings. My experiences and actions as they happen "racing against the Alzheimer's clock" to keep her communicating and interacting every day, even though she no longer speaks, are detailed in my never-ending battle to prevent her shutdown.

Series: Destiny Trilogy (2)

The first book of the Destiny Trilogy found Hrant Gulumian, the youngest child in his family, deeply relating to his granddaughter, Cassie when her nightmares precisely mirror his traumatic childhood experiences. Destiny of Dreams… Time Is Dear shared young Hrant’s harrowingly narrow escape from the mass deportations and attempted annihilation of the Armenians in the waning years of the Ottoman Empire.

Following the hauntingly intense and dramatic truths revealed in Book 1, the Destiny Trilogy resumes with the powerful hope and strength known only to survivors. Book 2 completes Hrant’s voyage and sweeps the reader into his family’s new life in the USA, illuminating the vulnerability of the diaspora and all forced refugees in a new and unfamiliar land filled with language, cultural, and discrimination challenges.

Author Martin celebrates her family’s quiet determination and its refusal to lose faith, despite bigotry and numerous economic woes, eerily paralleled in modern society. Set in the 20th Century, her family’s true story shines a beacon of optimism and comfort for countless other families, hailing from many nations and struggling to endure on the way to freedom and a chance for a better life in this century.

(Note: While having read Book 1 provides a solid foundation, it is not essential. To avoid spoilers, we respectfully request that reviews not include information from the second half of the book.)

This beautiful collection of poems reflect on those moments in human life, significant or trivial, remembered, suppressed or disowned, which linger within our experiences, from trust and its loss, love ending and love found, truth, post- truth and self-truth, to our interactions with the Internet and social media.

The poems range over numerous subjects including wealth and hypocrisy, politics and pollution, reminiscences of childhood, fond memories of parenthood and even on what might be read at a wedding.

Each verse has an objective, whether it be an examination of the manner of time passing, the gifts received and debts incurred in later years, or a lyrical contemplation on the majesty of the sea, and each is memorable or emotive or both.
