Bikenomics
How Bicycling Can Save the Economy
Elly Blue
“Elly Blue presents a compelling case for the bicycle. . . . This small
book is an inspiration to step away from the automobile and to bicycle
forward into a quieter, brighter, better world.” —Kent Peterson,
Kent’s Bike Blog

Making the case for adopting more sustainable modes of transportation,
this reference explores the economic benefits of bicycling. It starts with
an analysis of the real costs incurred by individuals and families in exist-
ing transportation systems and goes on to examine the current civic
expenses of these systems. With critiques of modern society’s deep-rooted
attachment to car culture, this book tells the stories of people, businesses,
organizations, and cities who are investing in two-wheeled transporta-
tion. Offering a fresh and compelling perspective on how people get from
place to place, this book reveals the multifaceted North American bicycle
movement with its contradictions, challenges, successes, and visions for
the future.

Excerpt:
I was a bicycle activist for several years, organizing
events and rallying around campaigns. This did not pay
the bills, so I became a reporter, writing editorials about
bicycle transportation issues for several online news
sources. I began to investigate the sparse data and
research studies available about cycling, and this stopped
me short. I had always, I realized, subconsciously seen
my activism and passion for two-wheeled transportation
as a fringe cause, as a way to learn skills that I could
later apply to real issues once I’d grown up a bit more.
What I found instead was validation beyond what I’d ever imagined.
Environmental destruction? Bikes can help stem the tide.
Health crisis? Bikes all the way.
Distracted driving and the epidemic level of traffic deaths and injuries? Absolutely, bikes.
Mental health crisis, depression, misery in general? Bikes.
Social isolation and community disintegration? Bikes.
Food crisis? Bikes can even help with that.
Energy crisis? Bikes take it head-on, not just in replacing motorized trips, but in creating
the conditions for more energy efficient places.
Economic crisis? Now this is the place where bicycling takes home the biggest trophies.
Fizz
How Soda Shook Up the World
Tristan Donovan
• Co-op available
This social, cultural, and culinary history charts soda’s remarkable,
world-changing journey from awe-inspiring natural mystery to ubiq-
uity. Off-the-wall and offbeat stories abound, including how quack
medicine peddlers spawned some of the world’s biggest brands, how
fizzy pop cashed in on Prohibition, how soda helped presidents reach
the White House, and even how Pepsi influenced Apple’s marketing
of the iPod. This history of carbonated drinks follows a seemingly
simple everyday refreshment as it zinged and pinged over society’s
taste buds and, in doing so, changed the world.
Tristan Donovan is the author of Replay: The History of Video
Games. His work has appeared in publications such as the Times,

Excerpt:
Like many, [Joseph] Priestley believed that mineral waters could
heal numerous ailments and doubtless thought that perfecting a
method for producing it artificially would greatly benefit the
health of all humanity. As it happened, Priestley’s home in the
English city of Leeds was next to a large brewery and the smell
of the fermenting grain in its vats attracted his attention. In the
summer of 1767, . . . he began a series of experiments with the
aim of capturing the gas emerging from the vats within plain
water. Eventually he succeeding by pouring water back and
forth in containers held above the vats of fermenting beer until
it became carbonated. The fizzy drink had been born.

NEXT DECADE, INC. DECEMBER
Excerpt (from essay by Stephen M. R. Covey and Greg Link):
Leading out in extending trust creates a culture of immense momentum, possibility,
and power. The increased freedom of expression, the autonomy, the enhanced trust,
and the greater speed at which things can be accomplished make an enormous, tangi-
ble, measurable difference in performance. This is one reason extending trust is
smart. It’s not built on the assumption that what we need is more rules, more regula-
tions, and more referees; it’s built on the evidence that extending trust and creating a
high-trust culture (in which top performance is expected) bring significantly greater
dividends for stakeholders on every level.
For us, a poster child for leading out in extending trust is Warren Buffett of
Berkshire Hathaway. The most remarkable thing about Buffett’s approach is that his
headquarters staff managing Berkshire’s 77 separate operating companies and more
than 257,000 employees is a mere 21 people—unheard of by any measure. Stanford
Business School’s David F. Larcker and Brian Tayan call it “the lowest ratio of cor-
porate overhead to investor capital among all major corporations” in the world.
When we asked Grady Rosier, the CEO who runs McLane, a $33 billion Berkshire
Hathaway business, how Buffett is able to create trust so quickly, he replied, “You
have to understand the core business philosophy at Berkshire Hathaway—the trust.
Warren’s ability to acquire quality companies is built around the trust. . . . Warren
leaves them in charge of their businesses, and they’re happy about that, and nobody
wants to let Warren down. And that’s the way it just cascades down the organization
as to ‘this is what the expectation is and this is what we’re going to do.’”
How Should We Live?
Great Ideas from the Past for Everyday Life
Roman Krznaric
“A fascinating rattlebag of intelligent, stimulating essays on everything
from work to love, time to empathy . . . densely researched but readable,
wise, and witty. By taking the long view to debunk some myths of mod-
ern life . . . Krznaric frees us from passing trends to answer the funda-
mental question: how should we live now?” —Financial Times
“This modern guide to living a good life by nurturing relationships, giv-
ing more to others, and resisting the self-imposed tyrannies of work, time,
ambition, and achievement, is entertaining and instructive.” —Times
“An intriguing upmarket self-help guide. . . . The virtue of this book is that
it takes a number of ideas that we might regard as givens of the natural
order of things . . . and makes clear how historically contingent they are.”
—Guardian
“Human history provides examples of almost every possible lifestyle
or philosophical position; Krznaric selects some of the most telling. . . .
Our responsibility, he argues, is not just to take inspiration from the past;
we also need to recognize where we have inherited damaging or limiting
attitudes.” —Independent
• Co-op available
• Advertising in BookPage magazine, Bookforum magazine, Commonweal
magazine, the New York Review of Books, Perspectives on History magazine,
Sojourners Magazine, Tikkun Magazine, and the Utne Reader
Twelve universal topics—including work, love, and family; time, creativi-
ty, and empathy—are explored in this book by illuminating the past and
revealing the wisdom that people have been missing. Looking to history
for inspiration can be surprisingly powerful. In How Should We Live?,
cultural thinker Roman Krznaric shares ideas and stories from history—
each of which sheds invaluable light on decisions made every day. There
is much to be learned from the ancient Greeks about the different vari-
eties of love, for example, from the Renaissance about living with passion
and facing the realities of death, from various indigenous cultures on
bringing up children, and from Japanese pilgrims on the art of travel.
History is usually read for pleasure or for insight into current affairs, but
this book is practical history—showing that history can teach the art of
living, using the past to think about day-to-day life.
Roman Krznaric is a cultural thinker, founding faculty member of the
School of Life in London, and creator of the acclaimed animated video “The
Power of Outrospection.” He is author of the blog www.outrospection.org,
and his articles have appeared in a number of print and online publications,
including the Huffington Post, Psychology Today, and the Wall Street
Journal. He has taught sociology and politics at Cambridge University
and City University, London, and advises organizations including Oxfam
and the United Nations on using empathy and conversation to create social
change. He has been named by the Observer as one of Britain’s leading
lifestyle philosophers.

Excerpt:
Learning from history is, on one level, about identify-
ing the most compelling of our ancestors’ ways of liv-
ing and adopting them ourselves. Yet it is also about
recognizing the many ideas and attitudes that we
have—often unwittingly—inherited from the past.
Some of these are positive and should be welcomed
into our lives, such as the view that immersion in the
wilds of nature is essential to our well-being. But we
have been bequeathed other cultural legacies that
could be doing us enormous harm, yet which we
scarcely spot or question, such as a work ethic in
which we consider leisure time as “time off” rather
than “time on,” or the belief that the best way to use
our talents is to become a specialist in a narrow field—
a high achiever rather than a wide achiever. We need to
trace the historical origins of these legacies which have
quietly crept into our lives and surreptitiously shaped
our worldviews. We may choose to accept them,
understanding ourselves all the better for it, or we may
reject them and cut ourselves free from an unwanted
inheritance, ready to invent anew. That is the sublime
power we wield when we have history in our hand.

A Private History of Happiness
Ninety-Nine Moments of Joy
from Around the World
George Myerson
“A charming resource . . . from the famous to the obscure, these joy-
ful moments speak to us, and we are momentarily connected with
their writers. . . . Who needs self-help books, when this history of
real people experiencing happiness will do much more to connect us
with this elusive experience? A jewel of a book, one worth keeping
company with in our hetic world.” —Historical Novels Review
“A refreshing celebration of happiness encrusted not in the bombas-
tic language of our self-help pop psychology culture, but in the quiet
humility of the real, the lived, the timeless human experience. . . .
Part New York Diaries, in its wide-spanning time line of sentiments,
part The Geography of Bliss, with its colorful atlas of cultures repre-
sented, and part something entirely new yet, in a the most human
way possible, entirely and reassuringly familiar.”

A chronicle of happiness and pleasant moments from ancient Greece
to more recent times, this collection contains 99 passages designed
to give an uplifting perspective to modern life. Instead of advocating
the latest gimmick, guide, or formula, this book offers a wider per-
spective on everyday instances of happiness from different times and
many cultures, advocating that happiness is found within the self
instead of a political mantra, internet meme, or advertisement prom-
ise. Including noteworthy writers and thinkers such as Marcus
Aurelius, Matsuo Basho, George Eliot, Louisa May Alcott, and
many others, the passages relate the shared experiences of happiness
throughout time, followed by a brief description and commentary
that encourages further reflection and exploration. These moving
and often beautiful expressions are drawn from intimate sources
such as diaries, letters, and memoirs; and reveal how earlier genera-
tions of various cultures found happiness often in the smallest, most
commonplace circumstances.
George Myerson has written a number of books on ancient and
contemporary culture, modern thought, and the philosophy of
everyday life. He holds a PhD in English from Cambridge University,
and was for many years Lecturer and Reader in English at King’s
College London.

Excerpt:
In the pages that follow, there are ninety-nine moments of
happiness. Each was experienced and recorded by an individ-
ual on a specific day. Their dates span from four thousand
years ago to the threshold of our own world. These were peo-
ple living in America and China, Britain and Japan, Europe
and Africa. They were in city streets and by rivers, in cottages
and on long journeys, when they had these varied moments
of understanding and peace, contact and laughter. Each of
these experiences took no more than a page to record origi-
nally, and some took only a few lines. Many belonged to
diaries, others came from letters, some few were written as
poems, usually rather private works. Even where the writers
are famous for other, more public texts or deeds, these are
words from their quiet side.
These apparently small glimpses of other lives add up to a
bigger idea. They bring real human happiness before our eyes.
We can see here the potential curled inside ordinary life. This
is a surprising and renewing effect in our complex and high
pressure era. In the twenty-first century, happiness has
become a riddle, a goal that remains strangely nebulous for
both individuals and societies. Psychology and economics,
politics and education all have happiness as their promise or
end. But we need to grasp what happiness is as a strand of
ordinary life, if we are to make good any of the promises.
When Faith Goes Viral
21 Suprising Ways Catholics Evangelize
Edited by Philip Lawler
• Author tour to include Boston; New York City; Philadelphia;
Providence, Rhode Island; and Washington, DC
Reporting on several grass-roots projects undertaken in America,
Eastern and Western Europe, Asia, Africa, and Latin America—
and other regions where “faith” is a new word—journalist Philip
F. Lawler offers a realistic report on the strategies and techniques
used by activists to deliver the Catholic message. Reporting on
both the failures and successes across a vast array of evangelist
organizations—including schools, parishes, pro-life groups, and
home schools—Lawler ultimately creates a portrait of a solid,
active, and inspiring segment of fervent believers who walk the
path of the apostles to speak the word of God.
Philip Lawler is the editor of Catholic World News and the author
of The Alternative Influence: The Impact of Investigative Reporting
on American Media and The Faithful Departed: The Collapse of
Boston’s Catholic Culture. He lives in South Lancaster,

Excerpt:
For years, whenever I have spoken to American Catholic audiences, I have faced
questions from the audience about the best hope for the future of the Catholic
Church in the United States. I invariably reply that we have been trained to look in
the wrong places for signs of spiritual renewal; we often don’t notice the rays of
hope because they are shining from unexpected directions. To illustrate my point,
my favorite example is the Eternal World Television Network (EWTN). Who
could possibly have anticipated that the world’s largest Christian broadcasting
empire would be founded by an impulsive nun with a long history of medical
problems and no credentials whatsoever in the field of broadcasting? The
American Catholic bishops took a much more “professional” approach, develop-
ing a proper business plan and investing many millions of dollars in their television
plans. Yet today the bishops have absolutely nothing to show for their investment,
while Mother Angelica produced the most startling evangelizing success of our
time. This is a story worth hearing, and reflecting upon, frequently.
This book, I hope, will provide readers with both the inspiration and the encour-
agement that will help them launch their own evangelizing efforts. Inspiration,
because among the many different initiatives portrayed in the following chapters,
there may be some that will spark the reader’s imagination. Encouragement,
because many of the projects described in this book had very humble origins. If
they could do it, you can do it!

Tea Party Catholic
The Catholic Case for Limited Government, a Free
Economy, and Human Dignity
Samuel Gregg
“If you don’t know Samuel Gregg’s writings, you don’t know one of
the top two or three writers on the free society today.”
—Michael Novak, bestselling author, Washington’s God:
Religion, Liberty, and the Father of Our Country
“Gregg’s work is . . . essential reading for anyone engaged in serious
study of the present-day papacy.”
—Journal of Ecclesiastical History
“Gregg’s book combines genuine attachment to personal and politi-
cal liberty with an equally fulsome appreciation of the ends or pur-
poses that inform a freedom worthy of man.”
—Journal of Markets and Morality
• $25,000 marketing budget
• Author tour to include New York City and Washington, DC
• Advertising in the American Conservative, American Spectator, National
Review, Reason, and the Wall Street Journal
Targeting core tenets of the Tea Party movement, including political
economy and economic history, Samuel Gregg makes the case for a
new breed of conservative—the Tea Party Catholic. Long married to
the conventional liberal ideologies of the past, American Catholics
were largely wed to the political image of John F. Kennedy.
Increasingly however, as Gregg declares, an ever-growing number of
practicing Catholics have gravitated to the conservative side of
American politics since the 1970s. Adding his voice to the popular
chorus of conservative Catholics—which include his contemporary
bestselling authors Michael Novak and Robert Sirico—Gregg exam-
ines the economic and social positions of the United States and
defines where the Catholic Church falls on a host of issues, includ-
ing a free-market economy, the welfare state, the role and size of
government, and the very definition of liberty and freedom.
Samuel Gregg is director of research at the Acton Institute
and the author of several books, including John Paul II and the
Development of Catholic Social Teaching, The Modern Papacy,
and On Ordered Liberty. He lives in Grand Rapids, Michigan.

Excerpt:
There is no Catholic teaching which tells us that, for exam-
ple, the government’s share of GDP has to be 23 or 27 or 50
percent, or that the upper tax rate cannot be anything other
than 50 or 10 or 79 percent of gross annual income, or that
fiat money must always be preferred to the gold standard. In
many cases, when a good quality of life posture is identi-
fied—such as universal health coverage—the precise discern-
ment of how a society attains that end may depend upon
empirical and prudential judgments reasonably in dispute
among people equally well-informed by principles of
Catholic teaching. In any event, one would expect any
Catholic examining such questions to acknowledge that
there are many policies that Catholics can advocate in order
to realize such a goal, while remaining in good standing with
the Church.
Unfortunately there is great reluctance to concede some of
these very basic distinctions among some of those who might
be called, for want of a better expression, “social justice
Catholics.” For many of them, it seems, the Catholic under-
standing of human dignity cannot translate into anything but
generous welfare states, weak conceptions of property-rights,
heavy regulation, and more-or-less social democratic policies.
For a Catholic to be an advocate of free markets—let alone
to use the word “capitalism” in a positive way—is, for many
social justice Catholics, deeply suspect.

Where God Hides
Stories of Divine Inspiration from an Irish Priest,
Singer, and Songwriter
Liam Lawton
In this moving exploration of the path to understanding God’s
presence, Liam Lawton considers how to bring spiritual awaken-
ing and consolation into readers’ lives, in every circumstance.
Taking inspiration from the gentle, age-old wisdom of the
Christian Book of Ecclesiastes as well as Celtic spirituality, the
journey of reflection and contemplation begins. Sharing remark-
able stories of God’s revelation in ordinary human life, Lawton
tells of the people and events that have affected him during his
years of ministry. He also relates fascinating perspectives on his
own spiritual awakening. This book is not linear, nor is it a mem-
oir, but is profoundly spiritual, full of wisdom and life lessons.
Liam Lawton is an award-winning, critically acclaimed Irish
singer-songwriter, author, and Roman Catholic priest. He is the
author of the bestseller in Ireland, The Hope Prayer.

Darkening of the Light
Witnessing the End of an Era
Llewellyn Vaughan-Lee
• Author’s previous books sold more than 70,000 copies
A compelling insight into the impact that external, ecological
damage has on the inner self, this spiritual exploration argues
that although spiritual teachings reveal that events in the outer
world are a reflection of changes taking place in the inner world,
there is little awareness and discussion of how this outer darken-
ing is reflected within. The book tells the story of changes that
have been taking place in the inner worlds that belong to a collec-
tive spiritual destiny and the fate of the planet, changes that are
as significant as the ecological devastation even as they are unre-
ported and unacknowledged. It asserts that destruction of the sur-
rounding world, as it continues, is reflected in the inner worlds of
all people through a loss of sacred light, and the threat of a soul-
less wasteland looms large. The book seeks to address readers’
futures as individuals and as a whole, and to inspire people to
take responsibility for the Earth and reclaim humanity’s sacred
role as its guardians.
Llewellyn Vaughan-Lee is a Sufi teacher who has lectured exten-
sively throughout the United States, Canada, and Europe. He is
the founder of the Golden Sufi Center; is the author of more

Feminine and the World Soul, Spiritual Ecology, and Spiritual

The Youngest Bishop in England
Beneath the Surface of Mormonism
Robert Bridgestock
Part memoir, part analytical work, this treatise details Robert
Bridgestock’s life as an active Mormon, his struggles with his
faith, his submerging of such doubts for the sake of keeping
peace with his devout family, and his eventual departure from
the Church due to the abuse he suffered. After joining the
Mormon Church at the age of 18, Bridgestock went on to
become the youngest Mormon bishop in England and remained
active in the Church for more than four decades, serving it in
many capacities and deeply studying Mormon scripture and his-
tory. But after having and voicing doubts about Mormonism,
and because Church authorities and scripture never delivered
satisfactory answers to his questions, he left the Church and
renounced the religion. An enthralling read from a leading figure
within the Church, this account provides a unique, day-to-day
look into Mormon life.
Robert Bridgestock served as the youngest Mormon bishop in
England before leaving the Church after the death of his wife.
This is his first book.

The Criminal Conversation
of Mrs. Norton
Victorian England’s “Scandal of the Century”
and the Fallen Socialite Who Changed Women’s
Lives Forever
Diane Atkinson
“Lively, entertaining, and filled with rivetingly weird details. . . .
Atkinson’s book pays tribute to a neglected heroine.”
—Sunday Times
“Important and definitive, this beautifully written and extremely
entertaining book resurrects a 19th-century heroine for the twenty-
first century.” —Amanda Foreman, author,
Georgiana, Duchess of Devonshire
“It is a brave book, written with verve and veracity.” —Times
“Expertly researched and finely written. . . . Mrs. Norton’s journey
from abused wife to passionate reformer is as moving as it is fascinat-
ing, and Atkinson’s richly detailed work does her subject the justice
she deserves.” —BBC History Magazine
• Co-op available
A forgotten heroine of the women’s rights movement is rescued from
obscurity in this biography of Caroline Norton, a respected poet,
songwriter, and socialite whose 1836 adultery trial rocked Victorian
England. When George Norton accused his wife of having an affair
with the British Prime Minister he sparked what was considered “the
scandal of the century.” Though she was declared innocent, the humil-
iated George locked Caroline out of their home, seized her manu-
scripts, letters, clothes, jewels, and every penny of her earnings, and
refused to let her see their three sons. This detailed account of the
Norton “criminal conversation” trial sheds vivid light on the desper-
ate position of women in male-dominated Victorian society and
chronicles Caroline’s lifelong campaign to establish legal rights for
married and divorced women, allowing them to inherit property, take
court action on their own behalf, and in effect establishing them for
the first time as full-fledged human beings before the law. Figuring
into this fascinating story are Norton’s friend and confidante Mary
Shelley, longtime admirer Charles Dickens, Lord Byron, Queen
Victoria, and other literary and royal heavyweights of the day.
Diane Atkinson holds a PhD on the politics of women’s labor. She
has worked as a lecturer and curator specializing in women’s history
at the Museum of London. She is the author of Elsie and Mairi Go
to War, Funny Girls: Cartooning for Equality, Love and Dirt: The

Excerpt:
Campbell reiterated John Fluke’s evidence and blasted it
with his attorney general’s scorn: ‘this man said that he . . .
saw Mrs Norton lying on the rug, like a Spartan virgin,
exposing her thigh without making any effort to adjust her
dress and they looked at each other, and he delivered his
message and she nodded to him and he went away. Was
this credible? Was it to be supposed that the act of adultery
had taken place, and that when Fluke came in she should
continue in that posture and make him a bow, or that she
should lie like a statue, without any effort to recompose
her dress, for the mere purpose of allowing Mr Fluke to
gratify his curiosity? The most profligate woman could not
have behaved in such a manner.’
The attorney general thanked the jury for asking whether
the Nortons were sleeping together at the time of the
alleged adultery, to which the answer was yes. This proved
that a ‘depravity’ between her and Melbourne could not
have taken place: ‘everyone knew that after a woman sur-
rendered her person to a paramour, she looked down upon
her husband with loathing and abhorrence’. He said that
Mrs Norton ‘continued to the last fond of her husband’,
and he declared to God that for him this was the most
convincing proof of her innocence.

The Last Warlord
The Life and Legend of Dostum, the Afghan
Warrior Who Led US Special Forces to Topple
the Taliban Regime
Brian Glyn Williams, PhD
“A jewel. General Abdul Rashid Dostum is a crucial and colorful
character in the United States’ stunning victory over the Taliban.”
—Peter Eichstaedt, author, Above the Din of War
“A riveting account of a warlord’s rise to power that has all the
drama, intrigue, and warfare of The Kite Runner, only this Afghan
story is real.” —Scott C. Levi, associate professor,

Chronicling the spectacular rise to power of General Abdul Rashid
Dostum, this is an intimate profile of the one of the most powerful
warlords to have dominated Afghanistan in the years since the
Soviet withdrawal in the late 1980s. His rise from simple peasant
villager to warrior against the repressive policies of the Taliban and
Al Qaeda is told by one of the few outsiders to be accepted into
Dostum’s stronghold in the northern deserts of Afghanistan. Thanks
to this unprecedented access, author Brian Glyn Williams was able
to conduct lengthy interviews with Dostum and his family, as well as
his subcommanders, local chieftains, mullahs, Taliban enemies, pris-
oners of war, and women’s rights activists. What emerges is an
intensely personal account of the Mongol warlord, detailing his
childhood, motivations, hopes for his country, and conviction that it
is time for a new generation of Western-trained technocrats to shape
his country’s destiny. With the drawing down of U.S. troops in 2014
and Dostum poised to reenter the world stage to fight a resurgent
Taliban, this timely analysis provides important historical context to
the controversy swirling around Afghanistan’s warlord culture and
is an essential contribution to the debate on Afghanistan’s future.

University of Massachusetts–Dartmouth. He has worked for the

Excerpt:
By mid-October the six agents had arrived at the
windswept, ex-Soviet airfield at Karshi, Uzbekistan, to
await their infiltration into the depths of Afghanistan’s
Hindu Kush. For two days they talked with General
Dostum via satellite phone trying to establish a safe landing
zone where they would not run the risk of being ambushed
by the Taliban. The Taliban had heard the rumors of
American agents being inserted into their country and were
desperate to capture them.
Finally, on October 16, Dostum gave the CIA team a green
light to come. By this time the Taliban air force had been
completely destroyed on the ground by US and NATO
bombings that had begun on October 7. Operation
Enduring Freedom had begun with an air assault that
cleared the skies of Taliban MiGs. This allowed Dostum
and his horse-mounted rebels to establish a relatively safe
base in the upper reaches of the Darya Suf, 110 kilometers
(68 miles) south of Mazar-e-Sharif. Dostum provided the
Americans with the coordinates of his position and told
them he and his men would be awaiting them in the high
mountains. They promised to have the perimeter well pro-
tected and let it be known that they were, after a decade of
fighting against the CIA-funded mujahideen, delighted to
finally have the legendary CIA on their side.
Blasphemy
A Memoir: Sentenced to Death Over a Cup
of Water
Asia Bibi and Anne-Isabelle Tollet
• Co-op available
Asia Bibi bravely tells her shocking and inspiring story from the
prison cell where she resides today awaiting the result of her
appeal against the death sentence she was given in 2009. On
June 14 of that year, she was picking fruit in the fields when she
went to the nearest well, picked up a cup, and took a drink of
water. She then offered it to another woman and suddenly, one
of her fellow workers cried out “Blasphemy!”The water
belonged to Muslim women, she said, and Bibi, who is Christian,
had contaminated it. In Pakistan, this is a crime punishable by
death, and in that instant Bibi’s fate was sealed and her night-
mare began. She was first attacked by a mob, then thrown into
prison and sentenced to be hanged. She has become a symbol for
anyone concerned with ending the acts of violence that are com-
mitted in the name of religion and for women that are unjustly
persecuted. It is as much a story about basic human rights as
about Islamic extremism and current events.
Asia Bibi is currently in prison in Pakistan awaiting the result of
her appeal against the death sentence she was given in 2009. Anne-
Isabelle Tollet is an international reporter for news channel France

• Publication to coincide with the 50th anniversary of the Sixteenth
Street Baptist Church bombing, on September 15, 2013
Revealing the story of the reopening of the case of the
Birmingham, Alabama, church bombing of 1963, this insider’s
account divulges the ins and outs of the investigation led by
detective Ben Herren of the Birmingham Police Department and
special agent Bill Fleming of the FBI. For more than a year, they
analyzed the original FBI files on the bombing and activities of
the Ku Klux Klan, then began a search for new evidence. Their
first interview—with Klansman Bobby Frank Cherry—broke
open the case, but not in the way they expected. Herren and
Fleming unearthed lost evidence and convinced long-silent wit-
nesses to tell their stories. With tenacity, humor, dedication, and
some luck, the pair encountered the worst and best in human
nature on their journey to find justice, and perhaps closure, for
the citizens of Birmingham.
T. K. Thorne served as an officer in the patrol and detective
bureaus of the Birmingham Police Department for 20 years,
retiring as precinct captain in 1999. She is the author of Noah’s
Wife. She lives in Birmingham, Alabama.

Since its original publication in 1972, no book has done as much
as Jeremy Brecher’s Strike! to bring American labor history to a
wide audience. Strike! narrates the dramatic story of repeated,
massive, and sometimes violent revolts by ordinary working peo-
ple in America and tells this exciting hidden history from the
point of view of the rank-and-file workers who lived it. In this
expanded edition, Brecher brings the story up to date with
revised chapters that cover the 40 years since the original edi-
tion, placing the problems faced by working people today in the
context of 140 years of labor history. A new chapter, “Beyond
One-Sided Class War” presents the American minirevolts of the
21st century from the Battle of Seattle to Occupy Wall Street and
beyond. Essential reading for anyone interested in the historical
or present-day situation of American workers, this updated clas-
sic serves as inspiration for organizers, activists, and educators
working to revive the labor movement today.
Jeremy Brecher is the author of more than a dozen books on
labor and social movements, including Building Bridges, Global
Village or Global Pillage, Globalization from Below, and

In these bold essays, historian Peter Linebaugh takes aim at the
thieves of land, the polluters of the seas, the ravagers of the
forests, the despoilers of rivers, and the removers of mountain-
tops. From Thomas Paine to the Luddites and from Karl Marx—
who concluded his great study of capitalism with the enclosure of
commons—to the practical dreamer William Morris who made
communism into a verb and advocated communizing industry
and agriculture, to the 20th-century communist historian E. P.
Thompson, Linebaugh brings to life the vital commonist tradi-
tion. He traces the red thread from the great revolt of commoners
in 1381 to the enclosures of Ireland, and the American commons,
where European immigrants who had been expelled from their
commons met the immense commons of the native peoples and
the underground African American urban commons, and all the
while urges the ancient spark of resistance.
Peter Linebaugh is a historian, a professor at the University of
Toledo, and the author of The London Hanged and The Magna
Carta Manifesto. He lives in Toledo, Ohio.

Anarchy, Geography, Modernity presents his groundbreaking cri-
tique of all forms of domination: not only capitalism, the state,
and authoritarian religion, but also patriarchy, racism, techno-
logical domination, and the domination of nature. Not only an
anarchist, but also a radical feminist, antiracist, ecologist, animal
rights advocate, cultural radical, nudist, and vegetarian, Reclus’
ideas are presented both through detailed exposition and analy-
sis and in extensive translations of key texts, most appearing in

on humanity as an epochal struggle between freedom and domi-
nation and his crucial insights on the interrelation between per-
sonal and small-group transformation, broader cultural change,
and large-scale social organization.
Elisée Reclus was a renowned French geographer, writer, and

This essential “how not to” guide explains how to act and what to
say in the presence of police to avoid unnecessary arrests for petty
offenses or mistakes in judgment that can lead to permanent dis-
qualification from jobs, financing, and education. From what to
do if a cop asks to search the car to dealing with a racial slur or
how to handle a roach in the ashtray, this handbook details the
nuances of dealing with the police. This revised and expanded edi-
tion of Arrest-Proof Yourself includes more than 100 pages of new
information to reflect changes in police technique and “proactive
policing.” More than 50 pages are dedicated to weaponry—includ-
ing how to legally own and handle guns and knives and which
firearms to use for self-defense—and updates examine topics such
as the current surveillance state and the ability of police to track
movements and activities using data drawn from cell phones and
computers. Sprinkled with not only moral outrage but also the
weird humor that permeates law enforcement, this urgent, eye-

pot back in its “proper” place. This fast-moving and exciting

David Ferrie
Mafia Pilot, Participant in Anti-Castro
Bioweapon Plot, Friend of Lee Harvey Oswald
and Key to the JFK Assassination
Judyth Vary Baker
Foreword by Jesse Ventura
Of the all the people surrounding the assassination of President
Kennedy, few are more mysterious and enigmatic than David
William Ferrie of New Orleans. Author Judyth Vary Baker knew
David Ferrie personally and worked with him in a covert project
in New Orleans during the summer of 1963, and this book
examines his strange and puzzling behavior both before and
after the assassination. At the time of the assassination, Ferrie
was a 45-year-old New Orleans resident who was acquainted
with some of the most notorious names linked to the assassina-
tion: Lee Oswald, Clay Shaw, Guy Banister, Jack Ruby, and
Carlos Marcello. He possessed assorted talents and eccentricities,
and his odd lifestyle was embellished with an equally bizarre
appearance featuring a red toupee and false eyebrows. This is the
first book focused solely on David Ferrie and his alleged involve-
ment in the conspiracy to assassinate President John F. Kennedy.

A Rose by Many Other Names
Rose Cherami & the JFK Assassination
Todd C. Elliott
Shifting the focus away from the assassination of John F. Kennedy
in Dealey Plaza in Dallas, Texas, to 48 hours prior in Eunice,
Louisiana, this book explores the prediction made by Melba
Marcades, aka Rose Cherami, that the president would be assassi-
nated on Friday, November 22, 1963 in Dallas. Discounting clair-
voyance, the book investigates the possibility that Rose had inside
information about the assassination. However, Rose Cherami was
not a credible witness: she was a prostitute, a one-time performer
in Jack Ruby’s Carousel Club, an admitted drug trafficker, a drug
addict, and a car thief. But the author’s research reveals glaring
omissions in her FBI files, questionable admissions regarding her
criminal history, and the dubious details of her untimely demise.
This book sheds new light on a relatively unknown footnote of
the JFK conspiracy theory.
Todd C. Elliott is a former AM talk radio host and a freelance
writer and journalist whose work has been featured in the
Abbeville Meridian, American Press, the Crowley Post-Signal, the
Daily Advertiser, the Eunice News, the Jambalaya News,

Edwin Kaiser’s Covert Life
And His Little Black Book Linking Cuba,
Watergate & the JFK Assassination
Scott Kaiser
Edwin Benjamin Kaiser was a thrill-seeking patriot who became
enmeshed with many of America’s biggest conspiracies, the full
significance of which is pieced together and explored in this
exciting account by his son, Scott Kaiser. Through handwritten
letters and contact book entries left by Edwin Kaiser, and a bevy
of discovered government documents, an exciting puzzle forms
around the life of a man who was at once a patriot, an arms
smuggler, a revolutionary leader, an assassin, and a husband and
father. In the 1970s Edwin was the military head of an anti-
Castro movement called Cubanos Unidos, and during his life he
was frequently in contact with Frank Sturgis—during which time
Edwin confessed to the author an assassination plot against
President Nixon and confirmed Sturgis’ role in the death of JFK.
This thrilling mix of paramilitary bravado, government conspira-
cy, family history, and firsthand anecdote shows how Edwin
Kaiser was willing to lay it all on the line to accomplish what he
thought was right.
Scott Kaiser is a writer who has spent years thoroughly research-
ing the events surrounding his father’s life and death. He lives in
San Antonio, Texas.

Survivor’s Guilt
The Secret Service and the Failure to Protect
President Kennedy
Vincent Michael Palamara
Painstakingly researched by an authority on the history of the
Secret Service and based on primary, firsthand accounts from
more than 80 former agents, White House aides, and family
members, this is the definitive account of what went wrong with
John F. Kennedy’s security detail on the day he was assassinated.
The work provides a detailed look at how JFK could and should
have been protected and debunks numerous fraudulent notions
that persist about the day in question, including that JFK ordered
agents off the rear of his limousine; demanded the removal of the
bubble top that covered the vehicle; and was difficult to protect
and somehow, directly or indirectly, made his own tragic death
easier for an assassin or assassins. This book also thoroughly
investigates the threats on the president’s life before traveling to
Texas; the presence of unauthorized Secret Service agents in
Dealey Plaza, the site of the assassination; the failure of the
Secret Service in monitoring and securing the surrounding build-
ings, overhangs, and rooftops; and the surprising conspiratorial
beliefs of several former agents.
Vincent Michael Palamara is an expert on the history of the
Secret Service. He has appeared on the History Channel, C-
SPAN, and numerous newspapers and journals, and his original
research materials are stored in the National Archives. He lives
in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.

The Mafia Court
Corruption in Chicago
Dr. John Russell Hughes
This rigorous examination of the court system is presented from
a practical, citizen-based perspective and fueled by the firsthand
anecdotes shared with the author by a member of the Mafia in
Chicago. Touching upon the history of mob influence, including
the dealings of infamous Al Capone, the book asserts both the
positives and negatives of organized crime participants who are
also functioning members of the Chicago community. It makes
claims about the ways in which corruption can develop in a
court system, and offers lessons through example on how deep
corruption could be in Chicago during various periods and what
motivation and opportunity there is for citizens to avoid such
court corruption.
Dr. John Russell Hughes is director of clinical neurophysiology
and a professor of neurology at the University of Illinois Medical
Center in Chicago. He is the author of six books, including
JFK and Sam: The Connection Between the Giancana and
Kennedy Assassinations, and more than 500 scientific articles.
He lives in Evanston, Illinois.

Keith Richards
on Keith Richards
Interviews and Encounters
Edited by Sean Egan
• Co-op available
• Advertising in Blurt
• Part of the Musicians in Their Own Words series
The iconic life and career of the famed guitarist of the Rolling
Stones is detailed in this compilation of interviews that spans the last
50 years. Featuring articles from GQ, Melody Maker, and Rolling
Stone, as well as interviews that have never previously appeared in
print, it charts Keith Richards’s journey from gauche, young pre-
tender and swaggering epitome of the zeitgeist to beloved elder
statesman of rock. Initially overshadowed by band mates Mick
Jagger and Brian Jones, Richards gained popularity as half of the
second-most important songwriting team of the 1960s, and in 1967
the drug bust at his house and his subsequent trial and imprison-
ment made him a household name. His interviews match his outlaw
image: free of banality and euphemism, they revel in frank stories of
drugs and debauchery. Yet they also reveal an unexpectedly warm,
unpretentious, articulate, and honest man. This collection amply
illustrates the magic and charm of Keith Richards.
Sean Egan is the author of The Guys Who Wrote ’Em, Jimi Hendrix
and the Making of Are You Experienced, The Mammoth Book of
the Beatles, and The Rough Guide to the Rolling Stones.

Excerpt:
So the Grim Reaper is sitting at home watching TV when the
doorbell rings. He opens up and Keith Richards is standing there
in hooded black sackcloth, a sharp-looking scythe at his side.
“Sorry,” says the Rolling Stones’ seemingly indestructible gui-
tarist. “Your number’s up.” Presented with the above vignette,
Richards gets the joke. “Yeah, I’d like to see the Reaper off,” he
says with a gruff laugh, “but people shouldn’t try and do what
I’ve done with my body, because not everybody can.”

what would soon become the Band. He maintained a successful

Party Music
The Inside Story of the Black Panthers’ Band and
How Black Power Transformed Soul Music
Rickey Vincent
• Co-op available
• Advertising in Wax Poetics magazine
• Author’s previous books sold more than 20,000 copies
Examining the culture and politics of the Black Power era of the
late 1960s, this book explores the relationship of soul music to
the Black Power movement from the vantage point of the musi-
cians and black revolutionaries themselves. This social history
introduces fans of soul music and 20th-century U.S. history
enthusiasts to the Black Panthers’ own band, the Lumpen, a
group comprised of rank-and-file members of the Oakland,
California–based Party. During their year-long tenure, the
Lumpen produced hard-driving rhythm-and-blues that asserted
the revolutionary ideology of the Black Panthers. Through his
rediscovery of the Lumpen, and based on new interviews with
Party and band members, author Rickey Vincent provides an
insider’s account of Black Power politics and soul music aesthet-
ics in an original narrative that reveals more detail about the
Black Revolution than ever before.
Rickey Vincent is the author of Funk and has written for
American Legacy, the Los Angeles Review of Books, and the
Washington Post. He teaches at the University of California–
Berkeley. He lives in San Francisco.

The Making of The Wizard of Oz
Aljean Harmetz
Foreword by Margaret Hamilton
“Harmetz’s book is much more than the lowdown on the making
of the film classic . . . It’s a fluent, incisive, and fair history of life in
Hollywood during the golden age of films. The author seems to have
talked to everyone with knowledge of what went on at MGM in its
heyday, and their memories (of people and events) are surprisingly
at odds with other claims, gossip and rumors. They tell of feuds,
power struggles, the lunacies that put four directors in charge of
The Wizard of Oz. They describe what working on the movie meant
to players and others. . . . Marvelous.” —Publishers Weekly
on previous edition
“Here is a superb analysis of the metamorphosis of a film. . . . From
first page to last, this is readable and enriching, and probably will
call for multiple copies in even the smallest libraries. Harmetz will
find her own Emerald City when the royalty checks start coming
in.” —Library Journal on previous edition
“Definitive.” —Salmon Rushdie, New Yorker, on previous edition
“What a delight this book will prove to all those people who adore
the film of The Wizard of Oz. . . . Mrs. Harmetz’s light-hearted
scholarship makes room for us all.” —Christopher Lehman-Haupt,
New York Times, on previous edition
• Co-op available
Released in conjunction with the 75th-anniversary DVD release of
The Wizard of Oz, this book is the definitive story of how one of
America’s most beloved movies was made and a marvelous,
unprecedented examination of how Hollywood used to make
movies. This updated edition includes numerous photos and shares
hundreds of interviews with cameramen, screenwriters, costume
designers, directors, producers, light technicians, actors, and more to
reveal how the factory-like Hollywood system of moviemaking
miraculously produced one of the most enduring films ever made.
From the scandalous headlines of Munchkin orgies at the Culver
City Hotel and the Witch’s (accidental) burning to the building of
the Emerald City and the sewing of nearly 1,000 costumes, The
Making of The Wizard of Oz provides a richly detailed re-creation
of MGM’s production No. 1060 and a detail-by-detail, department-
by-department look at the most powerful and flamboyant studio
Hollywood has ever known.
Aljean Harmetz is the author of The Making of Casablanca, On the
Road to Tara: The Making of Gone with the Wind, Rolling Breaks
and Other Movie Business, and a novel, Off the Face of the Earth.
She lives in Los Angeles. Margaret Hamilton was an actress best
known for her portrayal of the malevolent Miss Almira Gulch and
the Wicked Witch of the West in the 1939 film The Wizard of Oz.

Excerpt:
This time the smoke and the flames came quickly—too
quickly. “I felt warmth on my face, that’s all. It’s still unbe-
lievable. There was a whole lot of running and hullabaloo
and shouting, and my hat and my broom were on fire and I
didn’t know it.”
The flames had jumped from the broomstraw, scalding her
chin, the bridge of her nose, her right cheek, and the right
side of her forehead. The eyelashes and eyebrow on her
right eye had been burned off; her upper lip and eyelid were
badly burned. But even when the broom was snatched away
from her, she was aware only of a slight sensation of
warmth.
“To my surprise, the broom was grabbed out of my hand.
And then someone went bang, bang, on my head, and off
with the hat. I thought it was funny, such a hullabaloo, and I
said, ‘Well, everything was on time that time,’ sort of laugh-
ing. And they thought I was hysterical. . . . I thought I was
perfectly safe.”
Margaret Hamilton found out how wrong she was a few
moments later when she looked down at her right hand.
From the wrist to the fingernails, there was no skin on the
hand. It was as though someone had taken the top of her
hand and peeled it like an orange.
Curly
An Illustrated Biography of the Superstooge
Joan Howard Maurer
Foreword by Michael Jackson
• Co-op available
• Previous edition sold more than 48,000 copies
While the Three Stooges were the longest active and most pro-
ductive comedy team in Hollywood, their artistic height coincid-
ed with the years Curly was with them, and this is his definitive
biography. From 1932 to 1946 Curly was the zaniest of the
Stooges, becoming famous for his high-pitched voice, his “nyuk-
nyuk-nyuk” and “why, soitenly,” and his astonishing athleticism.
He was a true natural, an untrained actor with a knack for
improvisation, yet for decades, little information about him was
available. Curly’s niece Joan Howard Maurer amassed a wealth
of Curly memorabilia—a mixture of written material and rare
photographs of Curly’s family, films, and personal life—and her
exhaustive research and exclusive interviews resulted in this first
and only in-depth look at a crazy comedic genius. Plenty of inti-
mate details are included about his astonishing relationship with
his mother, his three marriages, and his interactions with his
daughters and friends.
Joan Howard Maurer is the daughter of Moe Howard, the leader
of the Three Stooges. She is the author of The Three Stooges
Book of Scripts and the coauthor of The Three Stooges
Scrapbook. She lives in Los Angeles. Michael Jackson is now rec-
ognized as the most successful entertainer of all time and often
spoke of his love for the Three Stooges.

A History in 24 Episodes from I Love Lucy
to Community
Saul Austerlitz
“An enthusiastic, well-observed, fresh look at old favorites that
makes a compelling case for the genius of American film comedy.”
—Kirkus Reviews on Another Fine Mess
• Co-op available
A carefully curated tour through TV comedy series, this mixtape
of fondly remembered shows surveys the genealogy of the form,
the larger trends in its history, the best of what the genre has
accomplished, and the most standard of its works. From I Love
Lucy, The Phil Silvers Show, and M*A*S*H to Taxi, The Larry
Sanders Show, and 30 Rock, this guide presents the sitcom as a
capsule version of the 20th-century arts—realism giving way to
modernism and then to postmodernism, all between the hours
of 8 and 10pm on weeknights. Each chapter springs from an
individual representative entity, including The Simpsons’ “22
Short Films About Springfield,” The Mary Tyler Moore Show’s
“Chuckles Bites the Dust,” Seinfeld’s “The Pitch,” and Freaks
and Geeks’ “Dead Dogs and Gym Teachers,” where Martin
Starr’s nerdy Bill takes comfort in—what else—the pleasures
of laughing at TV.
Saul Austerlitz is a writer and the author of Another Fine Mess:
A History of American Film Comedy and Money for Nothing: A
History of the Music Video from the Beatles to the White Stripes.
His work has been published in numerous publications, includ-

The Life of Fatty Arbuckle, the Mysterious Death
of Virginia Rappe, and the Scandal That
Changed Hollywood
Greg Merritt
• Co-op available
• Advertising in Cineaste magazine
• Author’s previous books sold more than 10,000 copies
Part biography, part true-crime narrative, this painstakingly
researched book chronicles the improbable rise and stunning fall of
Roscoe “Fatty”Arbuckle from his early big screen success to his
involvement in actress Virginia Rappe’s death, and the resulting
irreparable damage to his career. It describes how during the course
of a rowdy three-day party hosted by the comedian in a San
Francisco hotel, Rappe became fatally ill, and Arbuckle was subse-
quently charged with manslaughter. Ultimately acquitted after three
trials, neither his career nor his reputation ever recovered from this
devastating incident. Relying on a careful examination of docu-
ments, the book finally reveals what most likely occurred that
Labor Day weekend in 1921 in that fateful hotel room. In addition,
it covers the evolution of the film industry—from the first silent
experiments to the connection between Arbuckle’s scandal and the
implementation of industry-wide censorship that altered the course
of Hollywood filmmaking for five decades.
Greg Merritt has an MFA from the American Film Institute and has
written hundreds of feature articles for several magazines. He is the
author of Celluloid Mavericks: A History of American Independent
Film and Film Production: The Complete Uncensored Guide to
Independent Filmmaking. He lives in Los Angeles.

1939
The Greatest Year in Motion Picture History
Charles F. Adams
• Co-op available
A celebration of cinema from the year 1939—a year film critics
and historians are virtually unanimous in considering the great-
est in the history of motion pictures—this work is the perfect
combination of film history, artistic appreciation, historical
insight, and gossip. Profiling of six of the greatest films of the
year—Gone with the Wind, Stagecoach, Mr. Smith Goes to
Washington, The Hound of the Baskervilles, The Adventures of
Huckleberry Finn, and The Wizard of Oz—the book shows, in
detail, how these stories came into being and how long they
waited to find fame. It also describes the behind-the-scenes story
of each film: how the stories were adapted to a film script; the
writers, producers, directors, actors, and technicians who made
the film; how the film was received by critics and the public; and
the later careers of the people who made the film, with commen-
tary on such legendary stars as Clark Gable, Jimmy Stewart,
John Wayne, and Judy Garland. A must-have book that no
movie fan should miss, this work captures 1930s Hollywood—
an era which, in spite of being crass, commercial, restrictive, and
frequently dysfunctional, produced immensely enjoyable films
that are still watched with pleasure today.
Charles F. Adams is chairman of the Wajim Corporation and the
author of several of books, including The Complete Geezer
Guidebook and Murder by the Bay. He lives in San Francisco.

How to Kill a Vampire
Fangs in Folklore, Film and Fiction
Liisa Ladouceur
• Co-op available
Citing examples from folklore, as well as horror films, TV shows,
and works of fiction, this book details all known ways to prevent
vampirism, including how to protect oneself against attacks and
how to destroy vampires. While offering explanations on the ori-
gins and uses of most commonly known tactics in fending off
vampirism, the book also delves much deeper by collecting histor-
ical accounts of unusual burial rites and shocking superstitions
from European history, from the “real” Serbian vampire Arnold
Paole to the unique Bulgarian Djadadjii, a professional vampire
“bottler.” It traces the evolution of how to kill the fictional vam-
pire—from Bram Stoker’s Dracula and the Hammer horror films
beginning in the 1950s to Anne Rice’s Lestat and the dreamy
vamps of Twilight, True Blood, and The Vampire Diaries—and
also celebrates the most important slayers, including Van Helsing,
Buffy, and Blade. In exploring how and why these monsters have
been created and the increasingly complex ways in which they are
destroyed, the book not only serves as a handy guide to the histo-
ry and modern role of the vampire, it reveals much about the
changing nature of human fears.
Liisa Ladouceur is a journalist who writes for Rue Morgue
magazine and the author for Encyclopedia Gothica. She lives

Heroes in the Night
Inside the Real Life Superhero Movement
Tea Krulos
• Co-op available
• Author tour to include Milwaukee, Wisconsin
Tracing the author’s journey into the strange subculture of Real
Life Superheroes (RLSHs), this book examines citizens who have
adopted comic book–style personas and have hit the streets to
fight injustice in a variety of ways. Some RLSHs concentrate on
humanitarian or activist missions—helping the homeless, gather-
ing donations for food banks, or delivering toys to children—
while others actively patrol their neighborhoods looking for
crime to fight. By day, these modern Clark Kents work as dish-
washers, pencil pushers, and executives in Fortune 500 compa-
nies, but by night—they become heroes for the people. Through
historic research and extensive interviews, this work shares not
only their shining, triumphant moments, but also some of their
ill-advised, terrifying disasters.
Tea Krulos is a freelance journalist and creator of the blog
Heroes in the Night. He lives in Arcadia, Florida.

Sinemania!
A Satirical Exposé of the Most Outlandish
Movie Directors: Welles, Hitchcock, Tarantino,
and More
Sophie Cossette
• Co-op available
Instead of focusing attention on the stars in front of the cameras,
this highly imaginative collection of illustrated stories shines the
spotlight on the cinematic artists behind the scenes. The book
features graphic interpretations of the lives and careers of 23
North American and European directors from the past and pres-
ent, including Woody Allen, Alfred Hitchcock, Roman Polanski,
Quentin Tarantino, and Orson Welles. With unsparing, yet affec-
tionate drawings and prose, it portrays the twisted genius, ram-
pant egos, and weird behavioral traits shared by so many
notorious filmmakers. Additionally, the best movies by directors
not necessarily chronicled in the book—such as Federico Fellini,
Stanley Kubrick, David Lynch, Martin Scorsese, and Billy
Wilder—are represented with biographical stories, one-page
illustrations, and succinct, witty film descriptions.
Sophie Cossette is an author, an illustrator, and a cartoonist. Her
work has appeared in numerous publications in the United
States, Canada, and England. She lives in Toronto.

Velvet Swing—he knew he was on to something special. However,
Evelyn eventually married a young Pittsburgh decadent heir with a

One of the most influential voices of the 20th century and
among the greatest American journalists of all time is chronicled
in this intellectual profile of Vermont Royster. As editor of the
Wall Street Journal from 1958 to 1971, Royster helped shape the
publication into what it is today—the country’s largest circula-
tion daily newspaper and a force in influencing what people
think about government, politics, and business. He earned his
place in history by writing eloquently and passionately about
topics ranging from the Vietnam War to how he had his pocket
picked one morning on the New York subway, and he was much
loved by readers for his frequently sarcastic wit and his willing-
ness to peel back the layers and explain what was happening in a
way that was both understandable and entertaining. This por-
trait of the Pulitzer Prize–winning journalist includes exclusive
notes on private meetings with American presidents, archival
photos, and original writings that reveal Royster’s profound wit
and Twainian editorial style.

Building on a professional photographer’s on-the-job experience
using the high dynamic range (HDR) imaging technique, which
captures an astounding range of tones that far exceeds the native
abilities of any camera, this guide shows serious photographers
how a more sophisticated approach to HDR can produce images
that lack visual pretense, stand the test of time, and realistically
capture details that would otherwise elude the photographer. It
demonstrates the basic procedure for creating an HDR image step-
by-step, then explores progressively more complex and refined
techniques that can be applied as the scene dictates or the artist’s
personal aesthetic requires. Ample image sequences with plenty of
screen shots let the reader follow the entire process through from
start to finish. Unique techniques are presented for the treatment of
special subjects, ranging from landscapes to still lifes and portraits.

Debunking the common misconception that a flash is only neces-
sary in low-light situations, this guidebook with DVD provides
professional instruction on how to properly direct and shape
light in order to marshal mood, shape, texture, and color to
make photographs more dynamic and visually interesting.
Beginning with an introduction to the basic characteristics of
light—the quality and diffusion of light, the direction of the
light, and the color of the light—this work goes on to discuss
aperture, shutter speed, and ISO and their relation to Nikon
flash systems. After teaching how to master these fundamentals,
this book discusses how to use Nikon flashes, how to modify the
light from flashes, and what subject matter looks good in differ-
ent lighting situations. Sequential shots are paired with descrip-
tive text and pull-back images allow for easy understanding of
this important element to capturing lasting images.

tographer who runs her own studio. She lives in St. Louis.

Art Models 8
Practical Poses for the Working Artist
Maureen Johnson and Douglas Johnson
• Co-op available
• Advertising in the Artist’s Magazine
Whether for work on a finished piece, trying a new tech-
nique, or getting in some practice time, artists can work
when and where they want using the Art Models series.
Chosen specifically for artists who sell their work, Art
Models 8 features 174 all-new figure studies by 55 differ-
ent models, both male and female, that represent a wide
range of physiques and diversity. The poses include indi-
viduals and couples in natural, relaxed postures—from
standing and sitting to lying down. A judicious amount
of photo retouching has been done, not to make the
models more glamorous, but to remove distractions. The
PC- and Mac-compatible DVD-ROM included in the
book features high-resolution photos in JPG format. This
popular image format allows the photos to be viewed
and manipulated in any way an artist might find useful,
such as combining images or rotating them. Images can
be viewed on a computer screen, printed out, projected
for a group, or via a high-definition television. Each angle
of every pose may also be enlarged, enabling artists to
zoom in on specific body parts to achieve a higher level
of detail.
Maureen Johnson is an art director and a management
analyst. Douglas Johnson is a photographer and an engi-
neer. They are the coauthors of the Art Models series.
They live in Salem, New Hampshire.

When Football Went
to War
Todd Anton and Bill Nowlin
Foreword by Drew Brees
• Co-op available
More than any other sport, professional football
contributed fighting men to the battles of World
War II, and the 22 or so players or former play-
ers that lost their lives are among the riveting sto-
ries told in this tribute to football's war heroes
that spans many decades and military conflicts.
The National Football League counts three
Congressional Medal of Honor recipients among
its honors, along with numerous Silver Stars,
Distinguished Flying Crosses, and Purple Hearts.
When Football Went to War offers a ground-
breaking look at football—college and profes-
sional football alike—and many of the wartime
heroes who came off the field of play to fight for
their country. Detailed biographies of those who
gave their lives are supplemented by many other
stories of wartime heroism, from World War I
through to Pat Tillman's tragic death in the
Global War on Terrorism. Football has become
the most popular sport in America and this heart-
felt book honors the many sacrifices of NFL ath-
letes over the years in service of their country.

Last Team Standing
How the Steelers and the Eagles—“The Steagles”—
Saved Pro Football During World War II
Matthew Algeo
“Algeo’s account . . . is a colorful and sympathetic one about the
struggles and determination of a handful of men.”
—Pittsburgh Post-Gazette
• Co-op available
• Previous edition won the 2006 Nelson Ross Award for Best Pro
Football Historiography
• New in paper
Tracing the history of the National Football League during World
War II, this book delves into the severe player shortage during the
war which led to the merging of the Pittsburgh Steelers and the
Philadelphia Eagles, creating the “Steagles.” The team’s center was
deaf in one ear, its wide receiver was blind in one eye (and partially
blind in the other), and its halfback had bleeding ulcers. One player
was so old he’d never before played football with a helmet. Yet some-
how, this group of players—deemed unfit for military service due to
age or physical ailment—posted a winning record in the league, to
the surprise of players and fans alike. Digging into the history of the
war paralleled by the unlikely story of the Steagles franchise, both
sports fans and history buffs will learn about the cultural significance
of this motley crew of ball players during a trying time in United
States history.
Matthew Algeo is the award-winning author of Harry Truman’s
Excellent Adventure and The President Is a Sick Man. He has
reported from four continents for public radio’s All Things
Considered, Marketplace, and Morning Edition. He lives in Johnson
City, Tennessee.

Offensive Conduct
My Life on the Line
John “Hog” Hannah and Tom Hale
• Co-op available
This revealing, introspective look at an athlete’s intense drive to suc-
ceed in football also explores the adjustment to life after the final
whistle. John “Hog” Hannah was a two-time All-American for the
Crimson Tide under Bear Bryant. Hannah starred for the Patriots
from 1973 to 1985 and was one of the most beloved New England
Patriots players of all time. In his autobiography, the greatest offen-
sive lineman in the history of the sport candidly discusses the price of
dominating the trenches—from playing through compound fractures,
torn muscles, and broken fingers to giving and receiving gouged eye-
balls and testicle kicks when the referees weren’t looking his way. He
candidly discusses the rampant use of amphetamines, marijuana, and
other substances among NFL players during his career. Hannah also
recounts his battles with Patriots management. An introspective man
who found religion later in life, Hannah describes the forces that
shaped his drive to succeed and his addiction to control anything that
threatened to separate him from perpetuating the “glory of great-
ness.” Reflecting on how this mindset proved detrimental beyond his
playing days—leading to the breakup of his first marriage, his
estrangement from his children, and an egomaniacal approach in the
business world, he shares how he ultimately found God. Offensive
Conduct is both an inside look at the world of college and pro foot-
ball in the 1970s and 1980s and a chronicle of the ups and downs of
a driven, successful athlete.
John “Hog” Hannah is a former left guard with the New England
Patriots in the National Football League. He was named an “All-Pro”
10 times and won the NFL Players Association’s Offensive Lineman
of the Year award over four consecutive years. He has been named
the “Best Offensive Lineman of All Time” by Sports Illustrated and
was more recently listed in the top 20 on the Sporting News list of
“The 100 Greatest Football Players.” He is an inductee of the Pro
Football Hall of Fame. He lives in Decatur, Alabama. Tom Hale is an
attorney who received his secondary preparatory education at the
Baylor School in Chattanooga—a school John Hannah earlier attend-
ed. He lives in Birmingham, Alabama.

Excerpt:
When Leon Gray and I were summoned to appear before
the Player Relations Committee for a hearing in
Washington, D.C., my disrespect for the tactics of the organ-
ization multiplied tenfold. The Patriots owner, Billy Sullivan,
decided he was going to teach me—a dumbass redneck from
Alabama—another lesson about trying to mess with an affil-
iation as strong and sophisticated as the Patriots.
The organization’s vice president, Chuck Sullivan, got up
and began talking like he was an indignant preacher, then
started referring to a letter that Mr. Sullivan’s wife had writ-
ten to my mother during the holdout. The tone of the letter
(which I knew absolutely nothing about) was similarly indig-
nant and said things like “I should hope that no son of mine,
who had been properly raised, would ever disgrace his family
by acting so selfishly toward an organization that had treat-
ed him so well.” As I absorbed those words and just before
my head exploded off my shoulders, I looked around at the
other members of the committee, and one by one, they all
looked absolutely mortified. Steelers president Dan Rooney
looked totally horrified at what he had just heard.

After 26 seasons as head football coach at Virginia Tech
University, Frank Beamer is not only the longest tenured but also
the winningest active coach of any major college program, and
Let Me Be Frank contains his personal reflections on leading the
Virginia Tech program. Beamer has directed his alma mater to
20 consecutive bowl appearances, including six BCS bowls, five
top-10 finishes, and a trip to the National Championship Game.
But success didn’t come immediately: he started his career at VT
with four losing seasons in his first six years, including a 2-8-1
record in 1992 when many fans wanted him fired. He relates
how he turned a mediocre program into a perennial power while
sporting a clean NCAA record and a well-earned reputation as
one of the most-respected head coaches in the nation. He shares
stories from his time spent both on and off the gridiron, includ-
ing memories of generations of Hokies stars such as Michael
Vick, André Davis, Jim Druckenmiller, Corey Moore, Jake

Art Briles
Looking Up: My Journey from
Tragedy to Triumph
Nick Eatman
Foreword by Robert Griffin III
• Co-op available
Baylor head coach Art Briles is one of the most highly regarded
coaches in college football, and this biography delves far beyond
his football success and acumen. It explains how, at the age of
20, Briles lost his parents in a tragic car accident as they were en
route to one of his college games. The book relates how Briles,
devastated by the loss of his role models, used the catastrophe as
motivation to propel him toward the destination of his dreams.
As the book elucidates in detail, Coach Briles has made a career
of turning failing football programs around in both the high
school and collegiate ranks. His latest accomplishments at Baylor
University are also chronicled in this account of overcoming
tragedy and turning personal loss into overwhelming success.

The Foundation
Urban Meyer’s Inspired Leadership
and a New Era at Ohio State
Bill Rabinowitz
• Co-op available
Ohio State University’s remarkable 2011 season—and the begin-
ning of a new era at the Big Ten school—are recalled in this fas-
cinating account. It tells the story of Urban Meyer, who accepted
a job as head coach at Ohio State just in time for the NCAA to
ban the Buckeyes from postseason play in 2012, rendering them
ineligible for the Big Ten Championship and bowl games. Meyer
ultimately rose to the challenge of motivating a group of players
to commit to the program despite the ban, and the book recounts
what turned out to be one of the most remarkable seasons in
Ohio State’s 123-year history. Filled with never-before-revealed
details about Meyer and the 2012 season, this surprising and
entertaining record provides a complete picture of the new age
at Ohio State.
Bill Rabinowitz is a sports writer who has written for the

Some of greatest untold stories from Michigan’s football program

Howard en route to a meeting at NBC Studios with Tom Brokaw

Letterman. An especially heartfelt yarn features Steve Everitt’s

dog and his 1990 Gator Bowl MVP trophy. Go Blue! reaches
back to those special places in time in the program’s history in
addition to sharing heartwarming anecdotes.

More than 30 years after its cinematic debut, Slap Shot remains one
of the most popular sports movies of all time, and this book is actor
Dave Hanson’s firsthand account of its making. The movie was
based on the hilarious and outrageous antics of the fictitious Charles-
town Chiefs, a tough-as-nails minor league hockey team in the early
1970s. In financial trouble and due to fold at the end of the season,
they bring in the Hanson Brothers—three of the toughest hockey
players around—in a desperate bid to sell tickets. What ensues is
pure comic genius. Here is the dirt on the making of the movie.
Dave Hanson is best known for his role as a Hanson brother in
the movie Slap Shot and a former pro hockey player. He lives in
Pittsburgh. Ross Bernstein is the bestselling author of nearly 50
sports books. He lives in Eagan, Minnesota. Bob Costas has been
a sportscaster for NBC for more than 30 years. He lives in
Clayton, Missouri. Gordie Howe was four-time Stanley Cup

Keith Magnuson
The Inspiring Life and Times
of a Beloved Blackhawk
Doug Feldmann
Foreword by Cliff Koroll
• Co-op available
Written with the full support of Keith Magnuson’s wife and
children, this thrilling and insightful biography pays tribute to a
Chicago icon and true hockey legend. One of the most popular
Chicago Blackhawks of all time, defenseman Keith Magnuson was
raised on the raw, rough traditions of hockey in western Canada. He
captained the University of Denver team to its second straight
NCAA championship in the spring of 1969 and by autumn joined
Blackhawks stars Bobby Hull, Stan Mikita, and Tony Esposito,
becoming the much-needed “policeman” for the team. Over the
course of the next several seasons, Magnuson and the Blackhawks
fell painfully short of their Stanley Cup aspirations; nonetheless,
Magnuson’s leadership qualities led to his being named captain of
the team. On December 15, 2003, Magnuson was in Toronto riding
in a car driven by former player, Rob Ramage: he was killed when
the car veered over the center line and struck an oncoming vehicle.
As veteran sportswriter Bob Verdi described Magnuson upon his
retirement from the Blackhawks, “there have been many finer
athletes in Chicago, but not one finer person,” and this biography
shares the story of his remarkable life.
Doug Feldmann is a professor in the College of Education at
Northern Kentucky University and a former scout for the Cincinnati
Reds, Seattle Mariners, and San Diego Padres. He is the author of
numerous books, including El Birdos, Fleeter Than Birds, Miracle
Collapse, September Streak, and St. Louis Cardinals Past and
Present. He lives in Cincinnati, Ohio. Cliff Koroll and Keith
Magnuson were teammates growing up in Saskatchewan, at the
University of Denver, as well as on the Chicago Blackhawks. He
delivered the eulogy at Magnuson’s funeral and is the current presi-
dent of the Blackhawks Alumni Association. He lives in Chicago.

Excerpt:
Pierre approached a scalper at Maple Leaf Gardens. Five
dollars later, he was the proud owner of his first NHL
ticket. The excellent centre ice seat was right behind the
penalty box.
“I could see guys trying to cut through the middle of the
Toronto defence,” Pierre recalled. “Suddenly, this one guy
came through and Bill Barilko was crouched down, waiting
for him. Barilko swirled into him, stuck out his butt and
the guy went flying! I said to myself, I’ve got to practice
doing that!’”
Inspired, Pierre took the bus home to St. Catharines the
next day and after a week of perfecting his new move, he
felt ready for the Saturday tilt against the visiting Marlies.
The game proceeded along smoothly until Pierre’s moment
of truth arrived. Eric Nesterenko rushed towards him at
centre ice.
“I lined Eric up perfectly and gave him my ‘Barilko Bump.’
They carried him off on a stretcher! The trip to Toronto
had been worth it! That ticket really paid for itself—I had a
new weapon!”

My Last Fight
The True Story of a Hockey Rock Star
Darren McCarty and Kevin Allen
• Co-op available
• Author tour to include Detroit (November)
• Author’s previous books sold more than 125,000 copies
Looking back on a memorable career, Darren McCarty recounts
his time as one of the most visible and beloved members of the
Detroit Red Wings as well as his daily battles to overcome per-
sonal struggles with addiction, finances, and women. As a mem-
ber of four Red Wings’ Stanley Cup–winning teams, McCarty
played the role of enforcer from 1993 to 2004 and returning
again in 2008 and 2009. His “Grind Line” with teammates Kris
Draper and Kirk Maltby physically overmatched some of the
best offensive lines in the NHL, but he was more than just a
brawler: his 127 career goals included several of the highlight
variety, including an inside-out move against Philadelphia in the
clinching game of the 1997 Stanley Cup Finals. As colorful a
character as any NHL player, his arms are adorned with tattoos,
and he was the lead singer in the hard rock band Grinder during
the offseason. Yet this autobiography details what may have
endeared him most to his fans: the honest, open way he has dealt
with his struggles in life off the ice. Whether dealing with sub-
stance abuse, bankruptcy, divorce, or the death of his father,
Darren McCarty has always seemed to persevere.
Darren McCarty played parts of 15 seasons in the NHL—all but
two with the Detroit Red Wings, and in retirement he remains
active with the Red Wings’ Alumni Association. He lives in
Clearwater Beach, Florida. Kevin Allen is the author or coauthor
of more than a dozen sports books, including Star-Spangled
Hockey, What It Means to Be a Red Wing, and Without Fear.
He lives in Ypsilanti, Michigan.

The Third Best Hull
Dennis Hull and Robert Thompson
• Co-op available
Everyone knows about Bobby Hull, but not everyone remem-
bers that his brother Dennis also was a hockey star in his own
right and in this book, the other Hull outlines his life in hockey
with humorous anecdotes and stories. Hockey legend Gordie
Howe once said there were two superstars in the Hull family:
Bobby, the Golden Jet, one of the greatest players ever to tie up
a pair of skates for the Chicago Blackhawks, and his brother
Dennis, who had a solid career with the Chicago Blackhawks as
well. Some of the stories include the time Hull taught Guy
Lafleur to speak English; how Hull once won a coin toss worth
$250,000; and talks of his ongoing rivalry with Henri Richard,
the younger brother of the legendary Montreal Canadiens’ great
Maurice Richard. Along the way, Dennis gives an account of the
famed 1972 Russia–Canada series and speaks with candor
about his brother, Bobby; his nephew and St. Louis Blues’ star
Brett Hull; and hockey legends such as Howe, Ken Dryden, and
Bobby Orr. This new edition includes new photos and fills in on
the past 25 years, bringing the Hull family story up-to-date, and
providing insight into the life of a hockey star without taking
himself too seriously.
Dennis Hull is on the road throughout most of the year at his
numerous speaking engagements and has been the master of
ceremonies at numerous NHL awards banquets, including the
1998 All-Star game. Dennis Hull splits his time between Myrtle
Beach, South Carolina, and his home in Welland, Ontario.

Greg Oliver and Richard Kamchen
• Co-op available
Professional hockey enforcers—popularly known as “goons”—
finally get their due in this rollicking look at the players who
have perfected the art of making mayhem. Whether they are
called upon to duke it out with a fellow troublemaker or intimi-
date an opponent’s top scorer, these are the men who get the
crowds to their feet, the sports radio shows buzzing, and the TV
audience spilling their beers in excitement. Old timers like Joe
Hall and Red Horner are profiled here, along with legendary
heavy hitters Tiger Williams, Stu Grimson, and Bob Probert, fan
favorites Tie Domi and Georges Laroque, and contemporary
hockey stars Arron Asham and Brian McGrattan. The book also

boys: the suspensions, the concussions, and the constant contro-
versy of their role in the game.

Outsider Baseball
The Weird World of Hardball
on the Fringe, 1876–1950
Scott Simkus
“I’ve learned a lot from it, and I recommend it highly.”
—Joe Sheehan, Sports Illustrated
and the Sheehan Newsletter, on the Outsider Baseball Bulletin
• Co-op available
• Author tour to include Chicago
With new research and revelations that will surprise even the most
ardent baseball history buffs, this engaging account tells the story
of the mostly forgotten world of the mercenaries, scalawags, and
outcasts who made up the independent professional ball clubs.
Combining meticulous research with modern analytics, the book
provides a deeper understanding of how vast and eclectic the world
of professional baseball was during the first half of the 20th centu-
ry. It illuminates an alternate baseball universe where Babe Ruth,
Rube Waddell, and John McGraw crossed bats with the Cuban
Stars, Tokyo Giants, Brooklyn Bushwicks, dozens of famous Negro
league teams, and novelty acts such as the House of David and
Bloomer Girls. Written in a gritty prose style, this entertaining book
shares the stories of these unsung players and uses a critical lens to
separate fact from fiction.
Scott Simkus is the founder and editor of the Outsider Baseball
Bulletin. He lives in Carol Stream, Illinois.

CHICAGO REVIEW PRESS MARCH
Excerpt:
During the 1930s, news reports drifted northward every March
about the mysterious band of baseball gypsies who dared challenge
the toughest of major league teams. Sponsored by a religious sect
in Michigan, with a roster comprised of ballplayers from the sect,
this group of vagabond diamond drifters held their own against
Bill Terry, Mel Ott, and the New York Giants, battled valiantly ver-
sus Babe Ruth, Lou Gehrig, and the mighty Bronx Bombers, and
easily disposed of the lowly St. Louis Browns, 1-0.
According to newspaper stories, members of this ballclub, called
the House of David, had to abide by certain rules. They were non-
smoking, chaste vegetarians who refused to shave or cut their hair.
In deference to their religious beliefs (and despite their obvious,
on-field baseball wizardry), they refused to pursue professional
careers in the secular world of organized baseball. The House of
David played the major leaguers in spring, then semi-pro and
minor league teams in the summer, sometimes logging more than
200 games and 20,000 travel miles annually, because they loved
Jesus and they loved baseball, though not necessarily in that order.

2014 Baseball Forecaster
And Encyclopedia of Fanalytics
28th Edition
Ron Shandler
Edited by Ray Murphy, Brent Hershey,
and Rod Truesdell
• Co-op available
• Previous editions have sold more than 50,000 copies
The industry’s longest-running publication for baseball
analysts and fantasy leaguers, the 2014 Baseball Forecaster,
published annually since 1986, is the first book to
approach prognostication by breaking performance down
into its component parts. Rather than predicting batting
average, for instance, this resource looks at the elements of
skill that make up any given batter’s ability to distinguish
between balls and strikes, his propensity to make contact
with the ball, and what happens when he makes contact—
reverse engineering those skills back into batting average.
The result is an unparalleled forecast of baseball abilities
and trends for the upcoming season and beyond.
Ron Shandler was the first baseball analyst to develop
sabermetric applications for fantasy league play. His web-
site, www.BaseballHQ.com, won the Best Fantasy Baseball
Online Content Award from the Fantasy Sports Trade
Association in 2000, 2003, and 2004. He was awarded a
Lifetime Achievement Award from the Fantasy Sports Trade
Association in 2005. He lives in Roanoke, Virginia. Ray

West team analyst for www.BaseballHQ.com and a middle

TRIUMPH BOOKS DECEMBER
Excerpt:
Forecasts. Projections. Predictions. Prognostications. The crys-
tal ball aura of this process conceals the fact it is a process. We
might define it as "the systematic process of determining likely
end results." At its core, it's scientific.
However, the outcomes of forecasted events are what is most
closely scrutinized, and are used to judge the success or failure
of the forecast. That said, as long as the process is sound, the
forecast has done the best job it can do. In the end, forecasting
is about analysis, not prophecy.
Baseball performance forecasting is inherently a high-risk exer-
cise with a very modest accuracy rate. This is because the
process involves not only statistics, but also unscientific ele-
ments, from random chance to human volatility. And even from
within the statistical aspect there are multiple elements that
need to be evaluated, from skill to playing time to a host of
external variables.
Every system is comprised of the same core elements:
• Players will tend to perform within the framework of past
history and/or trends.
• Skills will develop and decline according to age.
• Statistics will be shaped by a player's health, expected role
and venue.
Great Expectations
The 2013 Toronto Blue Jays
Shi Davidi and John Lott
• Co-op available
A one of a kind look at the Toronto Blue Jays 2013 season, two
seasoned sports journalists provide readers with all they need to
know as the team attempts to end their 20-year playoff
drought. Beginning with a full look at General Manager Alex
Anthopoulos’s busy offseason in the wake of a disappointing
2012 season—from the acquisition of Cy Young winner R. A.
Dickey, a sexual abuse survivor who is the only active knuckle-
baller in the majors, to the blockbuster trade that brought in
the electric shortstop José Reyes and aces Josh Johnson and
Mark Buehrle—Great Expectations is replete with details on
the team’s newly overhauled roster. The book also highlights
other members of the team, including Brett Lawrie, the team’s
lone Canadian, whose kinetic style of play is a double-edged
sword; José Bautista, the two-time home-run champion bidding
to revive his power following wrist surgery; and Melky
Cabrera, whose 50-game drug suspension in 2012 forced him
to sign a free-agent contract with a new team for half the
money he might otherwise have realized. Packed with insightful
content, game-by-game analysis, and a bevy of photos, this is
the only book Blue Jays fans need to commemorate the team’s
2013 season.
Shi Davidi is a baseball columnist and TV analyst with
Sportsnet in Toronto, who has covered the Blue Jays since

From training horses at the farm to hauling equipment to the race
track, this hands-on manual covers everything a competent horse
owner needs to know to get involved in horse racing. Drawing from
her own experiences in transforming a $2,500 cast-off into a

training, which includes no medications, plenty of space to run, and

how to exercise horses, monitor their legs, and prepare races as well
as offering a run-down on track personnel. Filled with humor, easy-
to-follow instructions, and natural alternatives, this updated edition
offers further advice from a myriad of experts and reveals that the
track isn’t the only place to train a winning horse. A directory of
thoroughbred racetracks and organizations is also included.

Excerpt:
Enter the racing industry cautiously; one horse at time and
invest your money carefully. If you begin with a reasonably
priced horse, you can be successful. Learn everything you
can about the anatomy and physiology of the horse. Read,
study, and attend instructional seminars and follow your
instincts about your animal.
Beware of trainers and veterinarians who want to “give
your horse a little something” to help him when he has an
injury, and thus keep him running when he should rest. Bute
is fine occasionally, but remember injecting ankles and
knees with cortisone, or administering steroids and continu-
ing to race is setting your horse up for breakdown.
Banamine, Ketofen, steroids, etc., may “help” a horse get
through a race, but are short-term fixes that cause long term
damage.
Some of you will feel my suggestions are impractical in the
“real life” atmosphere of horse racing. So be it. I am in this
for the long run, for the long term good of the horse and
racing. We must clean up our own act or it will be done for
us. Horses are not disposable items to be weeded through in
search of the good horse. My program allows you to raise
and develop your animal slowly, with no real pressure until
the animal is mature and physically and mentally more able
to withstand the rigors of racing.

Suffering in Silence
Exploring the Painful Truth: The Saddle-Fit Link
to Physical and Psychological Trauma in Horses
Jochen Schleese
The wrong saddle, or one that fits incorrectly on a horse, can be
harmful to both rider and horse and this book goes into specifics
about how to properly fit a saddle while exposing the intricate
details of both saddle form and fit. Saddle authority Jochen
Schleese delves into issues that apply to all equestrian disciplines
with chapters that explain the anatomy of the rider—both female
and male, as well as that of children—and how the saddle should
accommodate the rider, in addition to sections devoted to the
horse’s biomechanics and the interaction of his structure and
motion with the riders. Balance and how the saddle should enable
the rider to sit is examined, and riders are introduced to the
horse’s “reflex points” in the saddle region, which can be nega-
tively impacted by poor saddle fit with dire consequences, includ-
ing lasting—even permanent—damage to the horse’s body. With
an eye toward improving saddle fit and horse well-being, Schleese
is careful to explain the ways of determining whether a saddle
fits, how to find a knowledgeable saddle fitter, and finally, how to
ensure horses remain comfortable in the tack they must wear.
Jochen Schleese was certified as the youngest Master Saddler ever
in Europe in 1984, and in 1986 was asked to be the official sad-
dler for the World Dressage Championship. He received a patent
for a revolutionary saddle design in 1996 and is recognized as an
authority on horse saddles.

• Part of the Ninja series
Expanded and collected for the first time in a single volume, the six
ninja books by this legendary ninjutsu master offer a comprehensive
guide to this misunderstood martial art. Beginners will be introduced
to the building blocks of ninjutsu: the basic postures, the natural ele-
ments that correspond with fighting techniques, the sorts of weapons
utilized, and the “scheme of totality.” More advanced practitioners
will benefit from descriptions of such principles as enlightened con-
sciousness, the goton-po theory of escape and invisibility, and the
union of body and weapon. Meditation exercises are included to
strengthen the consciousness and decrease reaction time. Expanding
upon his original writings, and interwoven with the wisdom and
insight garnered from four decades of martial arts training, the author
addresses misconceptions associated with ninjutsu and shares the
story of his path to becoming an internationally recognized warrior
and martial arts educator.
Stephen K. Hayes is the author of 18 books that translate the timeless
knowledge of the East into pragmatic lessons for contemporary
Western life. As spiritual head of the Kasumi-An Dojo, he continues
to offer instruction in both the meditation and martial arts traditions

brought together in this appealing pattern
book. A cute little pig, a cuddly lion, a big-
eared elephant, an irresistible cat, an

Knitting Double
Mastering the Two-Color Technique
with Over 30 Reversible Projects
Anja Belle
Knitting double, also know as double knitting, is a tech-
nique by which knitters can create two fabrics at the same
time, and this guidebook includes step-by-step instructions
with photographs to help master this method. Crafters
learn how the front and back are knitted simultaneously
and the stitches are worked in pairs. While the “right
side” of the fabric normally faces outward, and the
“wrong side” faces the inside of the work, double knitting
creates the illusion of a fabric with no wrong side. More
than 30 projects are included, beginning with basic pat-
terns and simpler projects, such as hats or scarves, and
moving into the more complex, such as mittens, pothold-
ers, and even cell phone cozies. This book is the perfect
resource for the intermediate to advanced knitter looking
to expand their repertoire.

A Passion for Colour
Exploring Colour Through Paper, Print, Fabric,
Thread and Stitch
Ruth Issett
Part homage and part how-to, this guide to the clever use of color
in paper and textile arts is as motivating to budding artists and
designers through its stunning finished projects as it is through
the lessons. Textile artist Ruth Issett demonstrates her passion for
color and its creative use through her striking examples, and she
encourages artists to experiment and create their own relation-
ship with color in their work. The book begins with detailed cov-
erage of the range of coloring media and surfaces available to the
contemporary textile artist—including paints, dyes, Markal
paintstiks, colored pencils, and pastels—and explores their effects
on both fabric and paper and how they can be used with print
and stitch. There follows an inspirational journey through all
aspects of color, including color mixing; adding tiny touches of
color; achieving intensity, vibrancy and depth; working with
opacity, transparency and translucency; color selection and com-
bination; and working with a limited palette.
Ruth Issett is an artist and member of the Textile Study Group
and the Prism exhibition group, both in the UK. She teaches
courses and workshops on textiles, and she is the author of
Colour on Cloth; Color on Paper and Fabric; Glorious Papers:
Techniques for Applying Color to Paper; and Print, Pattern
& Colour.

“It’s impossible not to enjoy the book—even newcomers to the
series will be caught up in the spectacle, in Stockwin’s colorful
characters. Ideal for fans of Dewey Lambdin, Bernard Cornwell,
and, of course, Patrick O’Brian.” —David Pitt, Booklist, on Victory
“An exciting and suspenseful historical loaded with action, intrigue,
treachery, and the bloody gore of 1805 warfare. . . . [Offers] vivid
and lush descriptions of colonial South Africa, professional seaman-
ship, bold leadership, and . . . the perils of life at sea in the Royal
Navy.” —Publishers Weekly on Conquest

• Part of the Kydd Sea Adventures series
As the captain of a useful frigate, Kydd is claimed by the Leeward
Islands station, exchanging the harsh situation in South America for
the warmth and delights of the Caribbean. It’s a sea change for
Kydd, who revisits places and people that figured in his time as a
young seaman. Some are nostalgic and pleasing, while others bring
challenges of a personal nature. In Europe, Napoleon is triumphant
on land, but so far away in the Caribbean, Kydd and the others feel
secure and make the most of running down prizes and sending off
fat convoys of sugar to England. But, in a stroke of genius,
Bonaparte finds a way to take revenge for Trafalgar and shocks
Kydd out of complacency when an element from his past returns
and Kydd is accused of murder. In a stroke of irony, it is that same
past that may just provide Kydd the means to clear his name.
Julian Stockwin is a retired teacher and educational psychologist,
and a former lieutenant commander of the Royal Navy Reserve. He
entered the British Navy at age 15 and was eventually named a
Member of the British Empire. He is the author of the Kydd Sea
Adventures series.

Cape Colony is proving a tiresome assignment for Thomas
Kydd’s daring commander-in-chief Commodore Popham: South
America’s Spanish colonies are in a ferment of popular unrest.
Rumors of a treasure hoard of Spanish silver spur him to assem-
ble a makeshift invasion fleet and launch a bold attack on the
capital of the Viceroyalty of the River Plate in Buenos Aires.
Navigating the treacherous bars and mud flats of the river, the
British invasion force wins a battle against improbable odds, tak-
ing the capital and the silver. But the uprising that promises the
end of Spanish rule never arrives and the locals begin to see dark
conspiracies behind the invader’s actions. Now Kydd’s men must
face resistance and the betrayal of their closest allies. Can they
save themselves and their prize?

Robert Plumlee
Set in present-day Denver, this political thriller features former
contract CIA operative turned plumber, Will Pearson, who shows
up for a court-ordered psychiatric appointment with Dr. Yancey.
During his appointment, Pearson recounts disturbing dreams of
his adventures in America’s most secretive black operations in
Cuba, Southeast Asia, and even the United States. Pearson even
claims he was among those sent to Dallas by the CIA in
November 1962 to stop the assassination of President John F.
Kennedy. Are Pearson’s dreams real or the figments of an over-
wrought imagination? The seasoned psychiatrist, Dr. Yancey,
skeptical at first, gradually comes to believe his new patient. It
also becomes clear that the psychiatrist is more than what he
appears to be. Some shadowy organization does not want
Pearson’s dreams investigated. Sinister figures follow Pearson,
and Dr. Yancey makes a strange phone call after Pearson’s first
visit. Who or what is behind Pearson’s court-ordered psychiatric
visits, and more importantly, why?
Robert Plumlee is a writer whose works have appeared in
numerous publications, including Arizona Highways and
Outdoor Arizona. He is a retired commercial pilot who flew
clandestine CIA flights in the 1950s and 1960s. He lives in
Colorado Springs, Colorado.

Mara Brennan is about to unravel. Three days after her 28th
birthday, her boyfriend dumps her, leaving her with nothing but
a basement apartment, a futon, and a pile of unpaid bills. On top
of that, her job, working as a receptionist at a cosmetic surgery
clinic, is a nightmare, her boss is a tyrant, and her friends have
gotten ahead of her in the game of life. She realizes it’s time for
an identity makeover and devises the OM List—a personal path-
way to perfection inspired by her best friends, Olivia and Mitz.
Mara hilariously tries and fails at all the things she thinks will
make her the sophisticated grown-up she wants to be.
Navigating the dueling worlds of yoga and cosmetic surgery,
gourmet dinners and Frankenberry cereal, etiquette handbooks
and too-helpful loved ones, this is an unforgettable comic debut
about how to get unstuck when caught in a rut.

Ronnie, an engaged hairdresser with a history of teenage reck-

unavoidable pull of the predictable, comfortable life laid out
before her. Charlie, an anxiety-ridden, award-winning writer,
feels suffocated by his literary success and familial responsibility,
including a bread-winning wife and a child with autism. When
the unlikely pair meet at a holiday party where Ronnie’s fiancé is
the caterer, a torrid affair, which begins on office desks and in
Toronto hotel rooms, provides both with a false reality that
offers solace in its secrets. Charlie becomes obsessed with the
calm of Ronnie’s ordinariness, and Ronnie revels in the clandes-
tine secrets and dramatic interludes of an otherwise predictable
life. The two live in film scripts and prose, until the entire lie
combusts in all its tragic beauty. Beautifully written and engag-

right versus wrong while examining what it means to be a hus-
band, wife, parent, and human being.

Watch How We Walk
Jennifer LoveGrove
• Co-op available
Alternating between a woman’s childhood in a small town and
as an adult in the city, this novel traces a Jehovah’s Witness fami-
ly’s splintering belief system, their isolation, and the erosion of
their relationships. As Emily becomes closer to her closeted
Uncle Tyler, she begins to challenge her upbringing. Her ques-
tions about the Jehovah’s Witnesses’ insular lifestyle, rigid codes
of conduct, and tenets of their faith haunt her older sister Lenora
too. When Lenora disappears, everything changes and Emily
becomes obsessed with taking on her sister’s identity, believing
that Lenora is controlling her actions. Ultimately, Emily finds
release through self-mutilation. The narrative offers a haunting,
cutting exploration of the religion’s practice of “disfellowship-
ping,” proselytization, and cultural abstinence, as well as their
attitude toward the “worldlings” outside of their faith. Sparse,
vivid, menacingly suspenseful, and darkly humorous, Watch
How We Walk simultaneously engages on emotional, visceral,
and intellectual levels.

In this darkly comic satire set during the Bosnian War, a frustrat-
ed author desperately seeking something original to write about
relocates from London to Sarajevo to join the Serbian army with
the intention of writing about his experiences as a sniper in the
war. Excited by the violence of war, where his job is to kill civil-
ians in the besieged city, and fascinated by his comrades in arms,
Milan Zorec finds time to reflect on the power of words and the
absurdities of modern culture and warfare. As Zorec sees the sav-
agery and madness of those around him, he barely glimpses his
own journey from dreamer to monster. Alternating between
London and Sarajevo, this chilling novel presents readers with an
unconventional perspective on war crimes told from the view-
point of an antihero who is not only reprehensible but also intel-
ligent, eloquent, amusing, and even sympathetic.
Peter Barry works in advertising. He has published many short

Peter Neill
With three Peter Neill novels in one binding, this omnibus pro-
vides literary experimentation, creative narrative, and imagina-
tive prose from the second half of the 20th century. A Time Piece
addresses three moments in time and four levels of conscious-
ness, revolving character and gender, and the interrelationship of
superstition, religion, and science as the basis for the evolution of
idea and belief. Mock Turtle Soup follows the voyage of two tur-
tles from Ark to Death, the autobiographical passage of a young
journalist from real to ideal, and his resolve to liberate himself
and all women from the prisons of inhibition, social conformity,
and the law. Acoma is a dystopian comedy set in a utopian
future of “perfect health” that interleaves the self-consuming
reveries of an anonymous narrator and the destructive antics of a
revolutionary snake with the reality and aspiration of a native
matriarch and her climb to freedom. The novels play with the
interaction between linear and nonlinear structure, internal and
external voice, literal and fantastical description, and word play.
Peter Neill is the former president of the South Street Seaport
Museum, the founder and director of the World Ocean
Observatory, and a writer. In addition to the three novels in this
collection, he is the author of numerous volumes on maritime art
and literature, including American Sea Writing, Great Maritime
Museums of the World, Maritime America, and On a Painted
Ocean. He lives in Sedgwick, Maine.

Cazzarola!
Anarchy, Romani, Love, Italy (A Novel)
Norman Nawrocki
“Cazzarola! is a powerful, blunt, epic scream against social injus-
tice.” —David Lester, author, The Listener
• Co-op available
• Author tour to include Toronto and Vancouver
A gripping novel that is at once political, historical, and roman-
tic, Cazzarola! spans 130 years in the life of the Discordias, a fic-
tionalized family of Italian anarchists. It details the family’s
heroic, multigenerational resistance to fascism in Italy and their
ongoing involvement in the anarchist movement. From early
20th-century factory strikes and occupations, armed anarchist
militias, and attempts on Mussolini’s life, to postwar student and
labor protest, and confronting the newest wave of contemporary
neofascist violence sweeping Europe, the Discordias navigate the
decades of political, economic, and social turmoil. Against this
historical backdrop, Antonio falls in love with Cinka, a proud
but poverty-stricken Romani refugee from the “unwanted peo-
ple,” without a country or home, forced to flee again and again
searching for peace. Theirs becomes a life-changing and forbid-
den relationship. Both are forced to reevaluate their lives and
contend with cultural taboos, xenophobia, and the violent perse-
cution of Romani refugees in Italy today.
Norman Nawrocki is an actor, a musician, and the author of sev-
eral books of poetry and short stories. He teaches at Concordia
University, gives workshops about creative resistance, and tours
the world performing theatre, music, and cabaret. He lives in

Startlingly human and unflinchingly honest, this thinly veiled,
fictionalized, firsthand account of talented political writer Victor
Serge’s time in prison is an important addition to the canon of
prison writing as well as an unfiltered view of humanity in the
early 20th century. Rejecting the opportunity to present political
propaganda, Serge’s portrayal of imprisonment is instead an
insightful and emotionally wrought tale of repression. The
depraving brutality that Serge experienced behind bars is at once
a mirror of a society at war and a deeply personal question of
purpose. Originally published in 1930 and translated from the
French by Richard Greeman in 1977, this reprint makes a fasci-
nating and compelling novel available again with a new intro-
duction by Greeman that situates the work in the context of
Serge’s life.
Victor Serge was a Russian writer and a revolutionary who lived
at the turn of the 20th century. His life as an outspoken critic of
Stalin led to him being arrested twice, deported, and having to
live out the remainder of his life in exile. He is the author of
books that include Birth of Our Power and Year One of the
Russian Revolution. Richard Greeman is a translator and the
author of Beware of Capitalist Sharks! He has translated and
written the introductions for five of Victor Serge’s novels. He
lives in New York City.

The dynamic Filomena Buscarsela returns in this fourth install-
ment of the eponymous mystery series as an apprentice to a New
York City private investigation firm, hoping to put in the three
years necessary to get her own P. I. license and earn enough
money to support herself and her daughter. Trouble is, she often
agrees to take on sticky neighborhood cases pro bono—like the
group of squatters restoring an abandoned building in the neigh-
borhood—rather than handle the big-bucks clients her bosses
would prefer. While helping out her more “senior” colleagues
with her own superior investigative techniques bred from years
on the beat, Fil agrees to look into the disappearance of a young
illegal immigrant. Then, witnessing the arrest of a neighbor on
marijuana-possession charges that nearly turns into a shootout
with the police, Fil is roped into finding out what went wrong.
Trying to balance charity cases like these with bread-and-butter
cases, not to mention single motherhood, Fil is quickly in over
her head dodging bullish cops, aggressive businessmen, and cor-
rupt landlords in their working-class Queens neighborhood.
Kenneth Wishnia is the author of the Filomena Buscarsela

Epidemic investigator Dr. Zol Szabo and his team are called to a

unexplained deaths from liver failure are creating panic. The
team begins to suspect a link with contaminated, cut-price ciga-
rettes manufactured on nearby Grand Basin Indian Reserve led
by the Badger, the multimillionaire kingpin of the illicit Native
tobacco trade. First-responders from the local fire department
become the epidemic’s next victims, and when Zol confronts the
Badger, he is rebuffed by the leader’s lust for blood, money, and
ancient artifacts. High-level government authorities, cowed by
the weight of Native influence, order Zol to shut down his inves-
tigation. As the Badger’s contaminated tobacco spreads across
the country, he stalks Zol’s family and executes witness after wit-
ness. Can Zol dig deep enough to find a creative solution before
it’s too late?

A Steve Nastos Mystery
R. D. Cain
“The conviction with which Cain writes and Nastos’s hard-

vory places where being rich or poor doesn’t matter in the
least.” —National Post on Dark Matter

ner and disgraced detective who is now a private detective in
business with rash lawyer Kevin Carscadden. Added to the mix

Blood on a Saint
Anne Emery
“Halifax lawyer Anne Emery’s terrific series featuring lawyer Monty
Collins and priest Brennan Burke gets better with every book.”
—Globe and Mail on Death at Christy Burke’s
• Co-op available
• Part of the Collins-Burke Mystery series
In the seventh book of the deftly written Collins-Burke Mystery
series, Father Brennan Burke’s patience is pushed to the limit when a
young woman announces to the world that the Virgin Mary has
appeared to her in the churchyard, and hordes of pilgrims, souvenir
hawkers, and reporters converge on the scene. But, as unwelcome as
these guests may be, they pale in comparison to yet another aggrava-
tion in Father Burke’s life, a controversial talk show host who clash-
es with Burke upon arriving in town. Events take a darker turn
when a body is found at the apparition site, and the talk show host
is picked up for the murder. There is enough aggravation to go
around, as Monty Collins learns when he takes on the loud-
mouthed TV man as a client. Monty and Brennan both have a stake
in uncovering the truth about the murder, and they both learn dis-
turbing things about the accused man and other suspects in the case.
Neither man can talk to the other about what he has learned, how-
ever, due to solicitor–client confidentiality on one side, the seal of
the confessional on the other.
Anne Emery is a lawyer and the award-winning author of the
Collins-Burke Mystery series. The first book of the series, Sign of the
Cross, won the Arthur Ellis Award for Best First Novel. The fifth
book in the series, Children in the Morning, won a silver medal in the

When spray-painted graffiti appears on the wall of Christy
Burke’s pub indicating that there’s a killer on the premises, his
grandson, Father Brennan Burke, is asked to investigate the van-
dalism. Though not at all keen on probing into the lives of the
bar’s clientele, he has little choice once a body is found on the
property. Issuing orders from a cell in Mountjoy Prison, the
pub’s current owner wants the problem solved without the police
anywhere near his building. Assisted by his pal Monty Collins
and fellow priest Michael O’Flaherty, Brennan begins to uncover
dark secrets worth killing for in the lives of the pub regulars. In
addition to the events surrounding the pub, Brennan’s murder
investigation becomes overshadowed by ominous events in
Belfast that may soon come home to roost in Dublin. Sinister fig-
ures are spotted in and around the pub, people are being fol-
lowed in the street, and Brennan comes to possess explosive
information that he cannot reveal to security forces. The situa-
tion compels him to take a hard look at Irish history and his
family’s place in it, and he can’t shake the feeling that an act of
violence in Northern Ireland is about to be avenged soon—and
very close to home.

Sugar-Puss on Dorchester Street
Al Palmer
“They’re cheap, gritty, good reads, and they feel like home.”
—Katia Grubisic, author, What If Red Ran Out?,
on the Ricochet series
• Part of the Ricochet series, which includes Montreal Confidential
(9781550652604)
One of the earliest Canadian noir novels, Sugar-Puss on
Dorchester Street tells the story of Gisele Lepine, a beautiful
farmer’s daughter who leaves her sleepy farming community for
the neon lights of Montreal. In the fast-paced city, dreams quick-
ly turn to nightmares as the young “farmette” finds herself sur-
rounded by drug-dealers, newspapermen, nightclub owners,
chorus girls, and a fatherly boxer who is well past his prime. It’s
all a bit too much for innocent Gisele, who hasn’t yet had to deal
with the violence that is to come. All becomes a whirlwind in
this novel set in the postwar “open city,” where burlesque houses
were plentiful, Dorchester Street was lined with nightclubs, and
Decarie Boulevard served as Canada’s Sunset Strip.
Al Palmer was a former sportswriter and featured columnist for
the Montreal Gazette and Montreal Herald. He is the author of
Montreal Confidential.

pelling story of self-redemption, and this is a clever, emotionally
resonant foray into horror.” —Booklist on Floating Staircase

In the fall of 1993, the quiet suburb of Harting Farms is shocked
when children begin to vanish, and one is found dead near
December Park—a great, sweeping expanse that is sunken below
the streets and surrounded on three sides by vast woodlands.
Newspapers call the abductor the Piper because he has come to
lead children away, while kids whisper darker names for him in
the school halls. Angelo Mazzone and his friends discover a link
to the dead girl and take up the search for the killer, vowing to
stop the Piper’s reign of terror. Their teenage pledge becomes a
journey of self-discovery and an odyssey into the darkness of
their own hometown.

Lovecraft’s Monsters
Edited by Ellen Datlow
• Co-op available
• Advertising in Locus magazine (February)
• Editor’s previous anthologies sold more than 400,000 copies
Deliciously creepy, this loving tribute to the master of modern
horror features riveting stories from his wicked progeny. H. P.
Lovecraft created a wealth of legendary monstrosities a century
ago, and this collection of stories reconnects with those imagin-
ings: the massive, tentacled Cthulhu, who lurks beneath the sea
waiting for his moment to rise; the demon Sultan Azathoth, who
lies babbling at the center of the universe, mad beyond imagin-
ing; the Deep Ones, who come to shore to breed with mortal
men; and the unspeakably-evil Hastur, whose very name brings
death. Celebrating these famous beasts in all their grotesque
glory, each story is a gripping new take on a classic mythos crea-
ture accompanied by an illuminating illustration. In one accursed
tale, something unnatural slouches from the sea into an all-night
diner to meet the foolish young woman waiting for him. In
another storyline the Hounds of Tindalos struggle to survive
trapped in human bodies, haunting pool halls for men they can
lure into the dark. Strange, haunting, and undeniably
monstrous, this is the best of Lovecraft’s creatures—reawakened
and reimagined.
Ellen Datlow has edited more than 50 anthologies, including The
Dark, Poe, and The Year’s Best Fantasy and Horror. She coedited
The Coyote Road, Salon Fantastique, and Troll’s Eye View and
has won the Locus, the Hugo, the Bram Stoker Lifetime

Barbara are expecting a blissful honeymoon in a welcoming new

yard seems to gain power in the night. Meanwhile, in Barbara’s
hour of need a beautiful young Tuscan appears, and she is drawn

Beyond the Rift
Peter Watts
“A shocking and mesmerizing performance, a tour-de-force of
provocative and often alarming ideas.” —Karl Schroeder,
author, Sun of Suns on Blindsight
• Co-op available
• Advertising in Locus magazine (December)
Combining complex science with skillfully executed prose, these
edgy, award-winning tales from a highly controversial author
explore the shifting border between the known and the alien.
The beauty and peril of technology and the passion and penalties
of conviction merge in narratives that are by turns dark, satiric,
and introspective. Among the bold storylines include a seemingly
humanized monster from John Carpenter’s The Thing reveals the
true villains in an Antarctic showdown; an artificial intelligence
shields a biologically enhanced prodigy from her overwhelmed
parents; a deep-sea diver discovers her true nature lies not within
the confines of her mission but in the depths of her psyche; a
court psychologist analyzes a psychotic graduate student who
has learned to reprogram reality itself; and a father tries to hold
his broken family together in the wake of an ongoing assault by
sentient rainstorms. Gorgeously saturnine and exceptionally
powerful, these collected fictions are both intensely thought-pro-
voking and impossible to forget.
Peter Watts is a science fiction writer and a marine-mammal biol-
ogist. He is the author of the Rifters trilogy, as well as Blindsight,
Crysis: Region, and Ten Monkeys, Ten Minutes. He has received
an Aurora Award, a Hugo Award, and a Shirley Jackson Award.

In the Company of Thieves
Kage Baker
• Co-op available
• Advertising in Locus magazine (October)
Espionage, time travel, and affairs gone terribly wrong define
this final collection of Kage Baker’s stories in the Company
series. The employees of Dr. Zeus Incorporated have discovered a
nearly foolproof recipe for success: combining time travel and
immortals. The Company, a powerful corporate entity in the
24th century, specializes in retrieving extraordinary treasures out
of the past gathered by cybernetically enhanced workers who
pass as ordinary humans. Whether a client wants a jewel worn
by Cleopatra, an original Shakespeare folio, or to make a baby
with the genes of Socrates and Marilyn Monroe, Dr. Zeus can
make dreams come true. The one rule that cannot be broken is
that the recorded particulars of history cannot be changed.
Functioning with extreme stealth and caution, the Company
strives to avoid the curiosity and greed of everyday people,
which proves to be more difficult than anyone could have fore-
seen. Included in this exciting collection are four previously
uncollected stories, “Mother Aegypt”—a classic tale of
Transylvanian intrigue, and two brand-new stories from a col-
laboration with Kage’s sister, Kathleen Bartholomew.
Kage Baker was an actor, a director, a playwright, and a teacher
of Elizabethan English as a second language. She is the author
of the Company series and The Anvil of the World, The Hotel
Under the Sand, and The House of the Stag.

Well known in the mainstream for her bestseller, The Jane Austen
Book Club, Karen Joy Fowler offers a short collection of percep-
tive, entertaining, thought-provoking, and often hilarious specu-
lative stories with a progressive and feminist edge. An all-new
story set in the days of Darwin, “The Science of Herself” is an
astonishing hybrid of SF and historical fiction: the almost-true
story of England’s first female paleontologist and her struggles to
bring modern science to the Victorian establishment. “The
Further Adventures of the Invisible Man” is a hilarious faux-YA
tale about bullying, revenge, baseball, and shoplifting. “The
Motherhood Statement,” a nonfiction analysis of the current
state of gender equality in publishing and politics, shows off
Fowler’s radicalism and impatience with both Tea Party idiocy
and liberal pieties. Also featured is an interview that showcases
the author’s mordant wit, deep erudition, and radical spirit.
Karen Joy Fowler is a science fiction and fantasy author who has
written three story collections and six novels, including the New

Afrofuturism
The World of Black Sci-Fi and Fantasy Culture
Ytasha L. Womack
• Co-op available
Comprising elements of the avant-garde, science fiction, cutting-
edge hip-hop, black comix, and graphic novels, Afrofuturism
spans both underground and mainstream pop culture. With a
twofold aim to entertain and enlighten, Afrofuturists strive to
break down racial, ethnic, and all social limitations to empower
and free individuals to be themselves. This book introduces read-
ers to the burgeoning artists creating Afrofuturist works, the his-
tory of innovators in the past, and the wide range of subjects
they explore. From the sci-fi literature of Samuel Delany, Octavia
Butler, and NK Jemisin to the musical cosmos of Sun Ra, George
Clinton, and the Black Eyed Peas’ will.i.am, to the visual and
multimedia artists inspired by African Dogon myths and
Egyptian deities, topics range from the “alien” experience of
blacks in America to the “wake up” cry that peppers sci-fi litera-
ture, sermons, and activism. Interviews with rappers, composers,
musicians, singers, authors, comic illustrators, painters, and DJs,
as well as Afrofuturist professors, provide a firsthand look at this
fascinating movement.

A Mysterious Something in
the Light
The Life of Raymond Chandler
Tom Williams
“Absorbing. . . . There’s so much here that’s interesting and
poignant. . . . His story is sad beyond words.” —Spectator
• Co-op available
• Advertising in Strand
Drawing on new interviews, previously unpublished letters, and
archives, this biography casts a new light on Raymond Chandler,
one of the most mysterious of writers. The man revealed was
troubled by loneliness and desertion from an early age—experi-
ences that informed his writing as much as they scarred his life.
The bleak picture details the collapse of his parents’ marriage,
and the relocation of Chandler and his mother to Ireland, and
later London, due to his father’s alcohol-fueled violence. In his
20s, he returned to the United States and he met his one great
love, Cissy Pascal, a married woman 18 years his senior. Only
during middle age, after his own alcoholism dissolved a lucrative
career as an oilman, did Chandler turn to crime fiction, although
his success proved bittersweet. His literary obsession, ambition,
and suicidal turn after Cissy’s death combined to prevent him
from living up to the promise of his first novels. This long-await-
ed biography shadows one of the true literary giants of the 20th
century and considers how crime writing was raised to the level
of art.
Tom Williams is a writer who spent six years investigating the
life and times of Raymond Chandler.

Queen Victoria’s Secret
The Startling Case for the British Monarch’s
Ghost Authorship of Alice in Wonderland
Second edition
Howard Thornton, MD
Edited by Byron Belitsos
• $20,000 marketing budget
• Author tour to include Seattle and Vancouver
Making a bold and compelling case for the shocking role that
the British ruler could have had in writing one of the most
beloved children’s stories of all time, this engaging discussion
reveals little-explored elements of Queen Victoria’s life and has
the potential to reshape literary history. With clarity and clever-
ness, the book claims that Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland and
Through the Looking-Glass are actually exposés of Victoria’s
mistreatment as a child princess and her accession to the throne.
First published in 1984 and revised with two new prefaces, the
book’s analysis of both Victoria’s personal history and experi-
ence and the books that could be her veiled life story contributes
to the legacy of each, even if just through the important ques-
tions it raises.
Howard Thornton, MD is a family doctor and the author of
numerous medical publications as well as Queen Victoria’s Alice
in Wonderland and Queen Victoria’s Through the Looking
Glass. He lives in San Francisco. Byron Belitsos is an award-win-
ning author, an editor, and a book publisher. He is the author of
One World Democracy, the coauthor of A Return to Healing,
and the editor of The Adventure of Being Human, and The

Previously Feared Darkness
Robert Priest
“Priest renders the quotidian and intellectualizes it for us in a
genius-sampling tool—himself.” —Broken Pencil magazine
“He is certainly one of the most imaginatively inventive poets in
the country.” —Pacific Rim Review
• Co-op available
Picking up and pulling at the vibrant threads of Robert Priest’s
last book of poems, Reading the Bible Backward, this collection
explores new themes while spanning multiple strands of thought.
One strand leads, with unabashed candor and elegance, through
the author’s love life; another, through fields of praise; a third
experiments with automated metaphors and delivers a challeng-
ing new selection of mash-ups that Priest calls meme splices. A
fourth thread rekindles the author’s love of the prose poem to
produce a suite of strange tales, bizarre playlets, and phonetic
modifications. With flair and daring, Previously Feared Darkness
consorts with forms and subject matter to present the work of a
master getting deep, nasty, and hilarious with the best of them.
Robert Priest is a columnist for Now magazine and the author of
16 books of poetry, including Reading the Bible Backwards. He
lives in Toronto.

Robin Richardson
“Robin Richardson’s poems take no prisoners, have a strange
and authentic music all their own, and mark her, with this haunt-
ing second book, as one of the best young poets of her genera-
tion.” —Thomas Lux, author, Child Made of Sand: Poems
“What a strange and wonderful world we find in Robin
Richardson’s new book of poems! A world alive with danger and
truth. A world much like our own though somehow even more
real. Richardson is not just a poet with her own exciting Voice
but a poet with an enigmatic Vision. How wonderful to get this
chance to see what she sees!” —Matthew Dickman, author,
Mayakovsky’s Revolver: Poems on Grunt of the Minotaur
• Co-op available
In her second collection of poetry, Robin Richardson charts a
path through a surreal otherworld that is at once carnal and aeri-
al, fine-grained and crude. With her unique and engaging voice
that mixes pop culture, archaic mysticism, and inventiveness with
lyric forms, these poems play with reality and fantasy, distorting
perception, and are universal and personal at once.
Robin Richardson is the author of Grunt of the Minotaur. She
holds an MFA in poetry from Sarah Lawrence, and her work has
appeared in numerous journals, including Arc, Berkeley Poetry
Review, Cortland Review, Malahat Review, and Tin House. Her

Weaving together autobiography, lies,

labor’s radical past, this book seeks to
articulate both devastation and possibility
in very human terms. In a language famil-
iar yet strange, composed of fragments,
multiple speech registers, and broken syn-
tactical arrangements, the book examines
lives lived through very difficult circum-
stances and the corporate forces that
range upon our earth.

Uneasy and vigilantly aware of the mire of
awareness, these poems wrest from daily
encounters of city life a contentious con-
sciousness that can open, albeit explosive-
ly to each next instant. The fragments that
construct these poems court grammar and
turn from it, their slipperiness befits both
the anxiety and ambivalence— the pleas-
ure and the trap—of attempting to name
the known, the knowable, and then to find
oneself snared in the constructs that such
knowing compels one to inhabit.
Sara Mumolo is a poet whose work has

Composed as a serial cento, turning dis-

collection offers readers a skewing of ver-

Southern California postwar suburban
landscape, YA novels, and apocalyptic

ic novel without pictures—poetry that is
brilliant, brazen, and rich with contempo-

vernacular is developed, veering from con-
temporary pidgin and biblical homilies to
Mother Goose and Virgilian epic.

The Not Forever
Keith Waldrop
• Advertising in American Poet magazine,

magazine, Poetry Project Newsletter, Poets
& Writers Magazine, and Rain Taxi Journal
• Author tour to include New York City and
the San Francisco Bay area
As the title suggests, these poems take not
only mortality, but also the impossibility
of truly assessing mortality, as their end-
lessly inexplicable subject. Keith Waldrop’s
language is by turns wry, brazen, brilliant,
humorous, sorrowful, and entirely unfor-
gettable as he focuses upon all that cannot
be absorbed by the logical mind’s measure
of aging and loss. A major force in
American avant-garde poetics for decades,
Waldrop provides an emotionally com-
pelling and intellectually demanding artic-
ulation of what living in full awareness of
the “not forever” means.
Keith Waldrop is the author of more than
two dozen books of poetry and prose and
a coeditor of Burning Deck Press. He has
been honored with the National Book
Award for Poetry and he received the rank
of Chevalier des arts et des lettres for his

Songs Without Words, translated from
Romances sans paroles, is the poetry col-
lection in which, unabashedly, Paul
Verlaine becomes the iconic poet of 19th-
century France. A book of musical
sequences, it seeks and finds exquisite
purity of expression, and it is a book of
intertwining narratives also, each of which
entertains abasements and ecstasies, crises,
crimes, and expiations. This collection has
been expertly translated from the French
while retaining the spirit of the original.
Paul Verlaine was a French lyric poet.
During his life in the 19th century, he was
a major influence on the symbolist move-
ment. Donald Revell is the author of more
than 10 books, including The Bitter
Withy, and he is the poetry editor of

en, to bring forth the quintessential power of the Angelic com-
munion, and to help navigate a way toward ascension. By

activity, spirituality, and everything in between.

Women would like to make better choices in selecting a mate,
and this book helps them recognize the qualities they desire and
how to find them beneath the façade men often possess. The
book looks at nine different player stereotypes, including truth
tellers, mama’s boys, betrayers, and deceivers, and teaches
women to read the signs through the player’s behavior and past
history. Many men don’t want commitment but are not honest,
and many women believe what men say but are tired of playing
games. Addressing the issues of honesty and communication, this
book empowers women to find the mate they want and deserve.

How Grief Tore Me Apart and
Put Me Back Together
Gayle Taylor Davis
• Co-op available
With stark honesty and emotional intimacy,
this personal account of a woman’s loss
will support and inspire others who are
also managing their grief. Gayle Taylor
Davis had it all—a husband she adored,
two successful daughters, and a career that
she enjoyed. Then with one phone call her
world fell away and she was plunged into
grief: her husband had suddenly passed
from a heart attack. The book relates how
she climbed out of grief one painful step at
a time, and recalls the worst moments—
days of crying, sleepless nights, and
thoughts of suicide. Through her prose and
poetry, Davis rejects simpleminded words
of comfort to address loss with the simple
truth that even the worst pain is survivable.
Gayle Taylor Davis is a retired English
teacher with 36 years of experience. She
lives in Fresno, California.

The Joy of
Allotments
An Illustrated Diary of Plot 19
Caroline Deput
Humorous and informative, this personal
journey follows the seasons on Plot 19
through Caroline Deput’s diary of two
years on her garden allotment. Filled with
the author’s original color drawings, it
evokes the joys as well as the hard work
of tending to a garden and the health and
psychological benefits of growing food for
oneself. Relating how her garden is the
perfect place to go to escape the worries of
daily life, Caroline’s entries follow the dif-
ferent rhythms of the seasons and her
absorption in the tasks that need to be
done: from spring as she plants with high
hopes, to summers spent harvesting her
first crop, to the autumn chores of sowing
for the early Spring harvest. Gardeners in
any locale will share in her—often mis-
placed—eternal optimism as she keeps her
allotment sufficiently weeded, watered,
and hoed to grow vegetables with such
alluring names as Lady Balfour, Bull’s
Blood, and Hurst Green Shaft.
Caroline Deput is an avid gardner who
has worked in advertising for 25 years.

True Tales of California Crazies,

David Kulczyk
• Co-op available
A freewheeling catalog of misfits,
eccentrics, creeps, criminals, and dreamers,
this compendium profiles 45 bizarre per-
sonalities who exemplify the Golden
State’s well-deserved reputation for non-
conformity. Gold Rush pioneers are
revealed as murderous madmen;
Hollywood celebrities are shown to be
drug-addled sex maniacs; early hippies are
just 1950s weirdos; and even seemingly
ordinary Californians have a talent for
freakish, crazy, and criminal behavior.
California Fruits, Flakes, and Nuts is a
side-splitting look at the people who made
California the strangest place on earth.
David Kulczyk is a historian and journal-
ist whose work has appeared in the East
Bay Express, the Sacramento News and
Review, and the San Francisco Guardian.
He is the author of California Justice and

Detroit
A Biography
Scott Martelle
• Co-op available
At its heyday in the 1950s and 1960s, Detroit’s status as epicen-
ter of the American auto industry made it a vibrant, populous,
commercial hub—and then the bottom fell out. Detroit: A
Biography takes a long, unflinching look at the evolution of one
of America’s great cities and one of the nation’s greatest urban
failures. This authoritative yet accessible narrative seeks to
explain how the city grew to become the heart of American
industry and how its utter collapse—from nearly two million res-
idents in 1950 to less than 715,000 some six decades later—
resulted from a confluence of public policies, private industry
decisions, and deeply ingrained racism. Drawing from U.S. cen-
sus data and including profiles of individuals who embody the
recent struggles and hopes of the city, this book chronicles the
evolution of what a modern city once was and what it has
become. This updated paperback edition includes recent develop-
ments under Michigan’s Emergency Manager law.
Scott Martelle is a professional journalist who has written for the
Detroit News, the Los Angeles Times, and the Rochester Times-
Union. His previous books include Blood Passion and The Fear
Within. He lives in Irvine, California.

Instrument Flying Handbook
FAA-H-8083-15B (Effective 2012)
2013 Edition
Covering everything pertinent to operating an aircraft in instru-
ment meteorological conditions or without reference to outside
visuals, relying solely on the information gleaned from the cock-
pit, this is the FAA’s primary pilot resource for instrument flight
rules (IFR). Chapters include the national airspace system, the air
traffic control system, human factors, aerodynamics, flight
instruments, flight maneuvers for IFR operations, navigation,
emergency operations, helicopter operations, and more. The
material in this manual applies to both conventional “steam-
gauge” analog instrumentation and the “glass cockpit” electronic
flight displays found in advanced aircraft. Information is well
organized into separate coverage of the traditional “6-pack” and
discussions of pictorial “tape” displays. Also covered are
advanced systems including flight management systems, the pri-
mary flight display and multifunction display, synthetic vision,
and traffic advisory systems. The book features a synopsis of
instrument clearance shorthand, as well as an instrument train-
ing lesson guide. The Instrument Flying Handbook is designed
for use by flight instructors, pilots preparing for the Instrument
Rating FAA Knowledge and Practical Exams, and instrument-
rated pilots looking for a refresher or preparing for an
Instrument Proficiency Check.

Formulas & Functions from
MrExcel
Formulas and functions are among what
Excel does best, and the most commonly
used aspect of the program that is in use
on 750 million desktops, but with as
many as 455 functions users can get easily
overwhelmed, which is why this tip card
was created to be as easy to use as possi-
ble. From SUM and AVERAGE to
VLOOKUP and SUMPRODUCT, this
card illustrates the most important func-
tions and groups them into helpful subject
matters that include rounding, lookup,
text handling, and condition. It uses an
illustrative approach to its lessons, and
instead of merely stating tips will present
a problem and the formula needed to
solve the problem.

Excel Macro
Recorder to VBA
Laminated Tip Card
Why the Macro Recorder
Doesn’t Work
When using Excel, people frequently run
into repetitive tasks that they have to
repeat countless times. The proper tech-
nique is to use a macro written in the
Visual Basic for Applications (VBA) lan-
guage; yet Microsoft’s Macro Recorder in
Excel has suffered from the same fatal
flaws for the last 20 years. The front of
this card will teach users how to change
three settings in Excel that allow the
macro recorder to actually work. The
back of the card will dive into the VBA
language, teaching the reader five bits of
code that they can add to their recorded
macro to provide truly useful macros.

Simon Fruelund
Translated by K. E. Semmel
The 14 stories in this collection dis-
play the often quiet, inconspicuous
way in which terrible truths and
experiences are intimated.
Conveyed without grandeur or
pathos, the revelations in these sto-
ries demonstrate clearly Fruelund’s
gift of subtlety and nuance; like scenes from life, characters’ dra-
mas are played out in brief but brilliant flashes. Ranging across
the wide arc of human experience, from the comic to the tragic,
each piece explores the complex emotions of the human heart.
Simon Fruelund is the author of five books in his native Danish,
including Panamericana, and his short stories have appeared in a
number of U.S. magazines. K. E. Semmel is a writer and transla-
tor whose work has appeared in the Brooklyn Review, the

College teaching assistant Ruth Tyack is
excitedly planning for a new job in
Rome when she falls in love with Tom,
a poet and guest-lecturer at the college,
but Tom is married and has too much
respect for his wife and a deep bond
with his special needs’ son. In Italy, Ruth is caught up in a whirl-
wind romance with Bruno, the scion of an aristocratic family.
Their marriage is happy but brief as Bruno is killed in an auto
accident and, in her grief, Ruth turns to his handsome cousin,
Peter, who has long been in love with her. But once remarried,
Peter demands that Ruth model herself after other wives of
wealthy Italians—docile homemakers and mothers who look the
other way when their husbands have affairs. As her unhappiness
grows, Ruth keeps returning to her feelings for Tom and the love
that has never been extinguished. Should she remain in an
increasingly untenable marriage or follow her heart? The rere-
lease of this bestselling contemporary romance has been updated
to include three new chapters which reveal the path she takes.
Susan Ross is a marriage and family therapist, a teacher, and a
writer. She lives in Akron, Ohio.

Hooking
Mary Dalton
“Restores to English poetry what
unthinking post-modernism subtracts:
music.” —Halifax Chronicle-Herald
on Merrybegot
The poet’s fifth collection is a series of
centos that, on one level, draw inspira-
tion from a traditional Newfoundland
craft. Like a hooked rug made up of
strips of fabric cut from old clothes, the
cento is stitched together from lines scissored out of other
poems. Dalton’s centos range across continents and epochs, rum-
maging among poems contemporary and canonical in celebra-
tion of the combinatory energies of language. As her lines hook
together syntactically and emotionally, they create a striking
music, by turns subtle, startling, and dazzling.
Mary Dalton is a poet and the author of Merrybegot and Red
Ledger. She is the recipient of numerous awards, including the E.
J. Pratt and the Newfoundland and Labrador Book Awards, and
has been shortlisted for the Atlantic Poetry, Pat Lowther, and
Winterset Awards. She lives in St. John’s, Newfoundland.

In Search of Neighborhood
George Ellenbogen
Poet George Ellenbogen’s memoir is
more than a collection of anecdotes of
his immigrant family and their journey
from Franz Joseph’s Austro-Hungarian
empire to Montreal in the 1920s. A
Stone in My Shoe charts his discovery
of how an immigrant Jewish neighbor-
hood—a tight-knit shtetl with extended families that had its own
shops, institutions, and daily Yiddish newspapers—sustained him
and his family as well as thousands of others. The revelations
ripple outward and what surfaces—the markers of his parents’
navigation in a new world and his own youth in the 1940s and
1950s Montreal—extend to all. They become part of the univer-
sal map in which readers will recognize their own courses into
childhood, adolescence, and adulthood.

A Jazz Life

Many jazz lives have unfolded as mar-

Leitch attests in this honest memoir of
a life lived in search of excellence in
music and art, but also a life lived bat-
tling depression, alienation, and nar-
cotics addiction. Leitch vividly relates
trying to eke out a living in jazz clubs,
nightclubs, and studios. He tells of growing up as an Anglophone
in Montreal’s working-class and predominantly French-speaking
East End refinery district, discovering jazz on CBC radio and
learning to play it. He lived and played in Montreal during his
early years, Toronto in the 1970s, and in New York since 1982,
which comprises the largest section of the book, chronicling the
inner workings of the jazz business.
