The sights and sounds of one of the most famous music festivals in
history come to life in this extraordinary compilation of photogra-
phy, memorabilia, and firsthand accounts from the Summer of
Love’s biggest event. It is the definitive book on the unprecedented
gathering of folk, pop, soul, and jazz music icons, such as Jimi
Hendrix, Janis Joplin, The Who, and Otis Redding. This chronicle
features a wealth of previously unpublished material from the pro-
ducer’s archives, rare items from collectors, personal photographs
from concert-goers, and dozens of new interviews with musicians
involved with the concert, including Pete Townshend, Roger
Daltrey, Ravi Shankar, members of The Jefferson Airplane, and
Canned Heat. Through hundreds of photographs from notable
artists alongside ephemera and memorabilia, such as programs,
posters, advertisements, and album covers, the book evokes the
magic moment of the festival as the epicenter of a groundbreaking
movement, showcasing it in all its kaleidoscopic glory.

Future Media
Edited by Rick Wilber
• Co-op available

(August); San Diego (October); and San Francisco (November)
This startling exploration of the mass media age uniquely com-
bines complex nonfiction and prescient fiction from the best and
brightest visionaries of the future. Essay contributors include
Marshall McLuhan, who posited that the medium is the message;
Cory Doctorow and his re-visioning of intellectual property in the
digital age; and Nicolas Carr, whose cautionary warnings include
that Google is making us stupid. The thought-provoking short sto-
ries are authored by science fiction luminaries including James
Tiptree Jr., whose pseudonymous cyperpunk preceded all of her
peers; Joe Haldeman and his wars where humans fight through
cloning and time travel; and Norman Spinrad, who has pitted the
media against an immortality conspiracy. Offering a blend of pre-
dictions for the course of communications, Future Media entertains
while it informs and challenges readers to consider the implications
for a society dealing with networks that are alternately personal,
public, pervasive, and powerful.
Rick Wilber is a college journalism professor and the author of
several college textbooks, including Magazine Feature Writing,
Modern Media Writing, and The Writer’s Handbook for Editing
and Revision. He has published more than 50 science fiction short
stories that have appeared in several anthologies and magazines,
including Analog, Asimov’s SF, and Fantasy & Science Fiction. He

Excerpt from Cory Doctorow:
There's a dangerous group of anticopyright activists out there who pose a clear and present danger to the future of authors and pub-
lishing. They have no respect for property or laws. What's more, they're powerful and organized, and have the ears of lawmakers and
the press.
I'm speaking, of course, of the legal departments at ebook publishers.
These people don't believe in copyright law. Copyright law says that when you buy a book, you own it. You can give it away, you can
lend it, you can pass it on to your descendants or donate it to the local homeless shelter. Owning books has been around for longer
than publishing books has. Copyright law has always recognized your right to own your books. When copyright laws are made—by
elected officials, acting for the public good—they always safeguard this right.
But ebook publishers don't respect copyright law, and they don't believe in your right to own property. Instead, they say that when you
“buy” an ebook, you're really only licensing that book, and that copyright law is superseded by the thousands of farcical, abusive
words in the license agreement you click through on the way to sealing the deal. (Of course, the button on their website says, “Buy this
book” and they talk about “Ebook sales” at conferences—no one says, “License this book for your Kindle” or “Total licenses of
ebooks are up from 0.00001% of all publishing to 0.0001% of all publishing, a 100-fold increase!”)
I say to hell with them. You bought it, you own it. I believe in copyright law's guarantee of ownership in your books.

A vivid portrait of politics, medicine, and
journalism in late 19th-century America

The President Is a Sick Man
Wherein the Supposedly Virtuous Grover Cleveland
Survives a Secret Surgery at Sea and Vilifies the
Courageous Newspaperman Who Dared Expose
the Truth
Matthew Algeo
• Co-op available
• Advertising in American History and Harper’s
• Author’s previous books sold more than 26,000 copies
An extraordinary yet almost unknown chapter in American history
is revealed in this extensively researched exposé. On July 1, 1893,
President Grover Cleveland boarded a friend’s yacht and was not
heard from for five days. During that time, a team of doctors
removed a cancerous tumor from the president’s palate along with
much of his upper jaw. When an enterprising reporter named E. J.
Edwards exposed the secret operation, Cleveland denied it and
Edwards was consequently dismissed as a disgrace to journalism.
Twenty-four years later, one of the president’s doctors finally
revealed the incredible truth, but many Americans simply would not
believe it. After all, Grover Cleveland’s political career was built
upon honesty—his most memorable quote was “Tell the truth”—so
it was nearly impossible to believe he was involved in such a brazen
cover-up. This is the first full account of the disappearance of
Grover Cleveland during that summer more than a century ago.
Matthew Algeo is an award-winning journalist who has reported
from three continents for public radio’s All Things Considered,
Marketplace, and Morning Edition. He is the author of Harry
Truman’s Excellent Adventure and Last Team Standing. He lives Excerpt:

From Missouri to New York and back again, this recounting of an
amazing journey chronicles the road trip of a former president and
his wife and their amusing, failed attempts to keep a low profile.
Diners, bellhops, and cabbies shouted out “Hiya, Harry!” whenever
they recognized the former president, and, out for his daily constitu-
tional on the streets of New York, Harry even stumbled into the
sidewalk shot of the newly launched Today show. Along the way
there are brief detours into relevant topics, such as the postwar
American auto industry, McCarthyism, the development of the
nation’s highway system, and the decline of Main Street America. By
the end of the 2,500-mile journey, readers will have a new and heart-
felt appreciation for America’s last citizen-president. This edition
also includes a new afterword from the author, who has now located
Truman’s long-lost Chrysler New Yorker.

A tale of buckskin, bordellos, and business acumen

Wanton West
Madams, Money, Murder, and the Wild Women
of Montana’s Frontier
Lael Morgan
“An important and entertaining addition to gold rush literature.”
—Pierre Berton, historian and author,
on Good Time Girls of the Alaska–Yukon Gold Rush
• Co-op available
• Advertising in Bust, Montana Historical Society Magazine,
Montana Magazine, and Wild West Magazine
Providing new insights into women’s struggle for equality, this
historical study shows the true story of the women of old
Montana. With few career options available in the 19th century,
many of the most independent and enterprising women turned to
the world’s oldest profession for a lucrative source of income.
Author Lael Morgan brings to life the lively and eccentric charac-
ters who tamed the West’s wildest region from the time of the
gold rush to the election of the first woman to U.S. Congress:
Chicago Joe, with her addiction to handsome men and high
finance; Yow Kum, an enslaved Chinese prostitute; the enterpris-
ing, successful black prostitute named Lizzie Hall; and Carmen, a
“full blossomed Spanish rose who would just as soon stick a
stiletto into your gizzard as stand at the bar and have a drink
with you.” An unbiased exploration of an open society and an
unforgettable time in American history, this work showcases how
some of these characters suffered the fate of disease, violence, and
alcohol and drug addiction, while a surprising number prospered.
Lael Morgan is a journalist whose work has appeared in the
Christian Science Monitor, the Los Angeles Times, National
Geographic, and the Washington Post. She teaches media writing
at the University of Texas–Arlington and is the author of several
historical books, including Art and Eskimo Power and Good
Time Girls of the Alaska–Yukon Gold Rush. She lives in Maine.

The lawless and terrifying reality of mining
in central Africa

Consuming the Congo
War and Conflict Minerals in the World’s
Deadliest Place
Peter Eichstaedt
• Co-op available
• Advertising in Harper’s and the Nation
Going behind the headlines and deep into the brutal world of the
Congo, this exposé examines why eastern Congo is the most danger-
ous place on the planet. While the Western world takes for granted its
creature comforts such as cell phones or computers, five million
Congolese needlessly die in the quest for the valuable minerals that
make those technologies work. Much of the war-torn country has
largely become lawless, overrun by warlords who exploit and murder
the population for their own gain. Delving into the history of the for-
mer Belgian colony, this book exposes the horror of day-to-day life in
the Congo, largely precipitated by colonial exploitation and internal
strife after gaining independence. It offers not only a view into the dire
situation but also examines how the Western world, a part of the
problem, can become a part of the solution.
Peter Eichstaedt is a veteran journalist and author whose work on
issues pertaining to human rights has taken him all over the globe.
As Africa editor for the Institute of War and Peace in Reporting in
The Hague, he traveled extensively in Africa to cover war crimes

Excerpt:
More human remains appear in the fields each year, like skeletons
emerging from their shallow graves. “We see bones of people and
we realize they were killed,” Simon Kabeda, who also lost his fami-
ly, tells me. He says that each time he wanders into the cultivated
fields surrounding the village, he is reminded of that awful day.
Five years have passed since the massacre occurred, and I suggest
that most of the bones probably have been cleared from the fields
and reburied by now.
But Kabeda shakes his head. “We’re afraid to touch the bones.”
Not only is there an instinctual revulsion to handling human
remains, there is a strong taboo. “It’s a psychological problem,” he
says with a nervous smile. “You may touch the bones and there
may be spirits there.” Handling the bones could bring trouble, espe-
cially if you offend the spirits by not being a relative to the

Every civilized age has answered the questions and challenges of spiri-
tual living in its own particular ways through its languages, arts, and
lifestyles, giving seekers various inputs that define their human experi-
ence. In this original manifesto, bestselling author Joan Chittister
delivers a roadmap based on the ancient Rule of Benedict that stands
as a practical model upon which to build a satisfying life, despite the
seemingly limitless—and at times meaningless—supply of options in
the modern world. By giving spiritual seekers—individuals, couples,
families, and small groups—a new opportunity to live a better life
from the very center of their world without ever having to withdraw
from it, Chittister’s new approach redefines Benedictine living for
modern day seekers while remaining firmly rooted in its values.

The artists who navigated the intersection
of music and politics

Keep On Pushing
Black Power Music from Blues to Hip-hop
Denise Sullivan
• Co-op available
• Advertising in American Songwriter and Utne Reader
Author Denise Sullivan explores the bond between music and
social change and traces the evolution of protest music over the
past five decades. The marriage of music and social change didn’t
originate with the civil rights and black power movements of the
1950s and 1960s, but never before had the relationship between
the two been so dynamic. Black music altered the road to libera-
tion for minorities, sparking creativity and resulting in a genre-
encompassing poetry, jazz, folk, and rock along with a new brand
of prideful and political soul and funk. Through extensive
research and exclusive interviews with musician-activists such as
Yoko Ono, Richie Havens, Janis Ian, and Buffy Sainte-Marie, this
chronicle details the struggle that went into the creation of libera-
tion music. A bittersweet narrative covering more than 50 years
of fighting oppression through song, Keep On Pushing defines the
soundtrack to revolution and the price paid to create it.
Denise Sullivan is a freelance writer and an online columnist for
Crawdaddy! She is the author of The White Stripes: Sweethearts
of the Blues. She lives in Santa Monica, California.

Dirty South

Southern Rappers Who Reinvented Hip-Hop
Ben Westhoff
• Co-op available
• Author tour to include Atlanta, Houston, Los Angeles, Miami,
and New Orleans
Acting as both investigative journalist and irreverent critic, Ben
Westhoff journeys across the southern United States in a small
Hyundai to document the phenomenon of southern hip-hop.
The exclusive interviews with the genre’s prominent players take
many forms—watching rappers “make it rain” in a Houston strip
club, partying with The 2 Live Crew’s Luke Campbell, visiting the
gritty neighborhoods where T. I. and Lil Wayne grew up, and
speaking with DJ Smurf and Ms. Peachez along the way. The cele-
brated but dark history of Houston’s Rap-A-Lot Records, the
lethal rivalry between Atlanta’s Gucci Mane and Young Jeezy, and
the venerable Scarface’s memories from time in a mental institu-
tion are just a few of the textured and tricky subjects explored.
Ben Westhoff is a former staff writer for St. Louis’ Riverfront
Times. His work has also appeared in Creative Loafing, Pitchfork,

Excerpt:
One night during the recording of We Can’t Be Stopped,
Bushwick Bill’s horror stories came to life. Drunk and stoned,
he paid a visit to a girlfriend and asked her to shoot him in the
face. She balked, he grabbed her baby and threatened it, and
during the ensuing tussle the gun went off and a bullet pierced
his right eyeball. The story is recounted on his solo track, “Ever
So Clear.”
Willie D and Scarface rushed to be with him in the hospital,
and a picture of them wheeling Bill on a gurney—his bandage
pulled down to reveal his bloody eye socket—serves as We
Can’t Be Stopped’s album cover.

guarded artist

Tom Waits on Tom Waits
Interviews and Encounters
Edited by Paul Maher, Jr.
• Co-op available
• Advertising in American Songwriter and Blurt magazine
• Contributors’ previous books sold more than 50,000 copies
This autobiographical portrait of Tom Waits takes shape through
a selection of more than 50 interviews. Starting with the first
interview—on KPFK-FM’s Folkscene in 1973—Waits speaks out
on a variety of topics and shares something truly unique with his
readers. In a rap that is a synthesis of inflections—Louis
Armstrong, Charles Bukowski, Jack Kerouac, Mark Twain,
hobo, pool hall attendant, vaudevillian huckster, musicologist
par excellence, and a fresh slathering of the organic word-ooze
of William S. Burroughs—Waits comes across as well read,
informed, and lucidly aware of current pop culture. He delivers
prose as crafted, poetic, potent, brilliant, and haunting as the
lyrics of his best songs.
Paul Maher Jr. is an author and an editor. He is the author of
Jack Kerouac’s American Journey and Kerouac: His Life and
Work, the editor of Empty Phantoms: Interviews and
Encounters with Jack Kerouac, and a coeditor of Miles on

Excerpt:
Have you done more acting or theatre?
I got a part in Dracula which I finished a couple of months ago. I loved
that. I played Renfield and I had to eat insects. I didn’t actually eat the
insects. I put them in my mouth, kind of like a funhouse for the insects,
and I moved them around and let them walk along my teeth and then I
brought them back out again, just like a roller coaster.
They must have been terrified!
Well, but they were safe. Everybody loves to be terrified when they’re
safe. So I’m hoping that the insects will remember that when I’m in my
grave. They’ll remember how good I was to them.
********************************************************
“When I’m recording I have certain things I have to do. I wet down my
hair, I turn my jacket inside out and I undo the first button on my collar.
I throw a rock through a window, I tear the head off a doll, I drink a
bottle of Scotch and, uh, I’m there.”

The life of the punk legend

Dancing Barefoot
The Patti Smith Story
Dave Thompson
“Thompson is an accomplished biographer and his attention to
detail and ability to insert relevant information serve him well.”
—Pop Matters on London’s Burning
“How does Dave Thompson know more about bands than they
can remember themselves? His sheer love of music. . . . He can
chronicle the events with a perspective that brings them startling-
ly back to life. Fiercely accurate and detailed, but with a sense of
love and nostalgia to put it all in context, here is a book that
puts the humanity back into punk rock.”
—TV Smith, singer/songwriter, on London’s Burning
Offering a unique analysis and discussion of her life, career, and
work, this is the true story of Patti Smith. Widely acknowledged
as one of the most significant American artists of the rock age,
an acclaimed poet, and a figurehead for many liberal political
causes, Patti Smith went from an ugly-duckling childhood in
postwar New Jersey to become queen of the 1970s New York art
scene. Not a tell-all biography, this measured, accurate, and
enthusiastic account of Smith’s career is written for her loyal
fans as well as for neophytes hungry for a great rock ’n’ roll
story. Guided by interviews with those who have known her—
including Ivan Kral, Tom Verlaine, Richard Lloyd, John Cale,
and Jim Carroll—it relies most of all on Patti’s own words.
Dave Thompson is a rock journalist who has contributed to
Alternative Press, Mojo, Q, Record Collector, Rolling Stone, and
Spin. He is the author of numerous music biographies of artists

The mythology of Robin Hood and the history

Robin Hood: People’s Outlaw
and Forest Hero
A Graphic Guide
Paul Buhle
Illustrations by Chris Hutchinson
• Author tour to include Chicago and New York City
• Author’s previous books sold more than 100,000 copies
Using a unique blend of text, collage, and comic art, this social
commentary written in graphic novel format analyzes the conti-
nuity between the myth of Robin Hood and the occurrence of
social uprisings among peasants. In addition, the book explores
the mysteries, factual evidence, and trajectory that led to cen-
turies of village festivals, songs, films, and cult television shows
about the mythical hero who robbed from the rich and gave to
the poor. Featuring a collage of various artistic renderings of
Robin Hood over the past seven centuries, the comic portion
presents a distinct perspective of the folk hero. Furthermore, the
book reveals a largely unknown and unconsidered environmen-
tal side of Robin Hood, and touches on ecological wholeness
that, for the most part, is absent in the mythos.
Paul Buhle is a retired senior lecturer of history and American
civilization at Brown University, a Distinguished Lecturer at the

movement and experience

Moments of Excess

writing some of the most stimulating reflections on the constantly
shifting movement against capitalism—always fresh, always
engaging, always pushing us beyond where we were . . . exciting
stuff.” —John Holloway, author, Crack Capitalism
• Advertising in Left Turn and Monthly Review
• Author tour to include New York City and San Francisco
Examining the complicated and sometimes controversial history,
goals, and tactics of anticapitalist movements, this compilation
focuses on the meaning of the movement as a whole and exam-
ines the protests that surrounded global trade and political con-
ferences such as the 1999 World Trade Organization meetings in
Seattle and the ongoing G8 summits around the world. The col-
lection offers a broad vision of anticapitalist activism as well as
strategies for instigating change, not only for the individual, but
also for the collective. Featuring popular culture references,
humor, poetry, and essays, this analysis of the counter-summit
movement is ideal for those wanting to explore new possibilities
for mobilization in the midst of crisis.

Excerpt:
The recent antiwar movement contained “moments of excess.” We saw people demonstrating who’d not
been on a demonstration in decades, if ever. Across the UK schoolkids walked out of classes because
they heard that “something” was happening in town. (Often, nothing was happening . . .until they
turned up and started something!) These people were exposed to new experiences and brought new
skills and attitudes, in particular a “do what we want” mentality. They carried no baggage regarding
“what happens” on a demonstration and this frequently made such demos difficult to police (for both
paid cops and organizers) because the new protesters had little knowledge of and respect for the “rules.”
As a result new subjectivities were produced. Another defining characteristic of moments of excess is
that existing methods of mediating people’s desires and demands fail. People don’t stop to think what’s
possible, what’s realistic—and no “expert” is there to help them keep their feet on the ground. Hence
the Paris 1968 slogan “Be Realistic, Demand the Impossible.” In times of heightened activity we simply
pose the only question worth asking: “what sort of life do we want to lead?” Or even “what does it
mean to be human?” And it’s perhaps important to note that moments of excess are not just a modern
phenomenon, they can be traced back through history. During moments of excess (“revolutionary”
moments) we feel more connected to past experiments in new-world construction: to the Italian autono-
mists, the Naxalite rebels, the Paris Communards, the English Diggers. During bursts of revolutionary
creativity we feel “really” connected to our antecedents, not just warming ourselves with their memory.

The battle against extremism and the fight to
preserve separation of church and state

Palin’s America: God,
Guns & Greed
Leah L. Burton
• Co-op available
This investigation posits Sarah Palin as a modern day Trojan horse
in the American political landscape. While distracting the general
public with her distinctive speaking style, charisma, and com-
pelling personality, Palin’s ultimate goal, according to the author,
is to replace democracy with theocracy in the United States.
Examining the threat posed by the principles of Christian domin-
ionism that shape Palin’s agenda, this book explores the forces
that use the Republican Party as a cloak of legitimacy to promote
their goals for the United States. Taking a fierce stance against the
recent resurgence of this ideology, the author asserts that the GOP
has been overrun by religious zealots who have had significant
impact in reshaping American political culture and plan to take it
further by co-opting enormous voter blocs of megachurch congre-
gations and millions more who are swept up in the religious right’s
Christian-nation-patriot rhetoric. Provoking discussion about the
role of religion in the political structure of the United States, this
work outlines in detail the position that those whose stated intent
is to “reclaim America for Christ” pose a serious threat to the
nation's government and its citizens.
Leah L. Burton is a political and social activist, a former lobby-
ist, and a multigeneration Alaskan. She lives in Lummi Island,
Washington.

Excerpt:
The announcement of Sarah Palin’s nomination for Vice President of the United States snapped me so hard I
had harsh-reality whiplash. Was it because this woman was so clearly lacking in qualifications, world view and
common sense? No. Did I believe for a moment that this was the brainstorm of John McCain? No. Was I con-
cerned about how infested the Republican Party had become since the 1990s by religious zealots? Absolutely!
Did I see this all coming together before my eyes in an instant with the pick of Palin? Oh did I!
Then as I watched what unfolded on that stage in Minneapolis, Minnesota at the 2008 Republican Convention
where Palin gave her first national speech all I could think of was that this was a shot across the bow of reli-
gious freedom in America. I was not alone in reading this warning and immediately embarked on research
with a group of theological and political authorities across the country which led me to write this book.
I am not an academic, nor a journalist, nor a politician. I am a fourth-generation Alaskan, mother and grand-
mother. I am a former lobbyist who was raised in a politically conservative Christian Republican household
who understands politics, studied social psychology and experienced the wave of religious extremism sweep
through Alaska as early as the 1960s, capturing my family in the tide. I am an observer and an activist. I
believe ardently that each and every one of us can make a difference, and I have.

A lush collection of John Grillo’s
artwork that spans two decades

Grillo: Abstract
Expressionism
Beyond the Fifties
Foreword by Donald Kuspit
Filled with images of the vivid and luminous
paintings that artist John Grillo is best known
for, this vibrant exploration observes the many
facets of the artist’s abstract expressionist work.
Spanning the years between the 1950s and the
late 1960s, more than 60 color plates showcase
Grillo’s abilities to express pure emotion on
canvas via color and texture, to embrace “acci-
dents,” and to celebrate painting itself as a com-
municative action. Art students, historians, and
collectors will savor this brilliant collection and
the distinct perspective it offers for viewing the
breadth of Grillo’s contributions to the abstract
expressionist movement.
Donald Kuspit is a distinguished professor of art
history and philosophy at the State University of
New York–Stony Brook and a contributing edi-
tor to Artforum, New Art Examiner, Sculpture,
and Tema Celeste, as well as an editor of Art
Criticism. He is the author of numerous articles
and several books, including April Gornik, The
End of Art, and Hiroshi Senju. He lives in New

An inspirational collection of one
artist’s work from the last 30 years

Grillo: Expressionism
Figurative Works
Foreword by Robert A. Whyte
Artist John Grillo’s contributions to the expres-
sionist movement from the 1980s through the
present are explored in this colorful examination
of his work. Through the use of color and texture
and by embracing “accidents,” Grillo was known
for relaying his expression of pure emotion
directly onto the canvas. More than 60 color
plates of the artist’s figurative theme works,
including “Circus,” “El Dorado,” “Tango,”
“Jealousy,” “Opera,” and the “Marilyn” series,
are included in this compendium and offer the
unique opportunity to observe the artist’s emo-
tion firsthand. Art historians, students, and
enthusiasts will appreciate this complete, modern
collection of a seminal artist’s work.
Robert A. Whyte is the curator emeritus of the
Museo Italo Americano. For 20 years he was
the director of education at the San Francisco
Museum of Art. He lives in San Francisco.

Lessons that empower photographers to boldly
pursue the subtleties of sophisticated lighting

Off-Camera Flash Techniques
for Digital Wedding and Portrait
Photographers
Neil van Niekerk
• $20,000 marketing budget
• Advertising in Rangefinder magazine and www.strobist.com
Rather than focusing on the gear needed to use off-camera flash,
this specialized resource hones in on the techniques needed—
addressing photographers’ most common questions and provid-
ing practical examples of off-camera flash used on real
assignments. Seeking to address the various challenges of off-
camera lighting, professional photographers and advanced ama-
teurs alike will find a range of confidence-building instruction,
beginning with basic how’s and why’s of lighting for creative
effect, the types of equipment available and instruction about
their proper use, clear definitions of various technical concepts
such as managing shutter speed and controlling flash exposure,
using ambient light as well as natural sunlight during a shoot,
and incorporating off-camera flash into a portrait session.
Concluding this lesson plan is a look at five different real-life
photo sessions, each employing a different flash technique. Here,
photographers get a deeper understanding of each concept put
into practice, marrying the elements of lighting with the natural
elements presented by the shoot.
Neil van Niekerk is a professional photographer and the author

With the surge in popularity of small flash photography, this
guide is a timely resource for shutterbugs looking to take full
advantage of a growing trend. Studio flash systems are expensive,
unwieldy, and often require the help of a hired assistant. The
advent of the small flash allows working photographers to
avoid large investments, gives them mobility when traveling
to off-site photo shoots, and offers them functionality for
illuminating small areas. Covering all aspects of the small flash,
including gear selection, placement of flash units, and proper
settings and communications, this helpful how-to also offers
techniques and practical advice from a variety of practiced
shooters who work with this illuminating medium. Professional
and aspiring photographers will reap the rewards and overcome
the challenges of shooting with a small flash with the help of this
instructional manual.

A convenient resource for studious stitchers

Everything Crochet
A Must-Have Reference Book
for the Serious Crocheter!
Edited by Carol Alexander and Connie Ellison
Covered in the pages of this in-depth, how-to book are the answers
to a wide range of nuts-and-bolts questions that crocheters are
often unable to find in standard tutorial crochet books that
cover only the basics. Fledgling stitchers will learn how to read
patterns, work with multiples, successfully substitute yarns,
effectively master seaming, evaluate gauge, convert measure-
ments, enlarge patterns for a perfect fit, fix crochet mishaps, use
special hooks, work with color, block projects, and crochet fitted
socks. Beyond the basics, this guide also shows crafters the ins
and outs of felting, mosaic crochet, Swedish embroidery, tambour,
fair isle, flatwork bead crochet, and even how to process and
crochet pet hair. This book will also help readers organize their
crochet supplies and yarn scraps and even show them how to
take their crochet to a professional level. Projects include pillows,
a ladies’ jacket, socks, toys, and more.
Carol Alexander is the editor of Crochet! magazine and several
books, including 5-Hour Doilies, 8-Hour Fashion Scarves, Big-
Hook Crochet, Crochet Mile-a-Minute Baby Blankets, Hooks-
Only Crochet from Start to Finish, Hooks-Only Quick-Stitch
Afghans, and Single Crochet from A to Z Sampler Afghan.

A vivid concoction of supernatural lovers,
speculative noir, and contemporary fairy tales

The Urban Fantasy Anthology
Edited by Peter S. Beagle and Joe R. Lansdale
“Peter S. Beagle has both opulence of imagination and mastery
of style.” —New York Times Book Review
on The Secret History of Fantasy
“Like 10-alarm chili, Lansdale is pretty strong stuff. . . . He has
become a cult figure.” —People Magazine
• Co-op available
• Advertising in Locus magazine (September)
Star-studded and comprehensive, this imaginative anthology brings
a myriad of modern fantasy voices under one roof. Previously difficult
for readers to discover in its new modes, urban fantasy is represented
here in all three of its distinct styles—playful new mythologies, sexy
paranormal romances, and gritty urban noir. Whether they feature
tattooed demon-hunters, angst-ridden vampires, supernatural
gumshoes, or pixelated pixies, these authors—including Patricia
Briggs, Neil Gaiman, and Charles de Lint—mash-up traditional fare
with pop culture, creating iconic characters, conflicted moralities,
and complex settings. The result is starkly original fiction that has
broad-based appeal and is immensely entertaining.
Peter S. Beagle is the author of A Fine and Private Place, The
Innkeeper’s Song, The Last Unicorn, The Rhinoceros Who Quoted
Nietzsche, and Tamsin. He wrote the screenplays for the animated
feature-film versions of The Last Unicorn and The Lord of the Rings,
and is the recipient of the Mythopoeic Fantasy Award, a Hugo, and
a Nebula Award. He lives in Oakland, California. Joe R. Lansdale

Though she still struggles to stay clean, she has found safety and

An ages-old family secret breaches the boundaries between reality
and magic in this fresh retelling of a classic fairy tale. When Berkeley
student Will Taylor is introduced to the mysterious Feierabend sisters,
he quickly falls for enigmatic Livvy, a chemistry major and accomplished
chef. But Livvy’s family—vivacious actress Maddie, family historian
Rose, and their mother, absent-minded Sylvia—are behaving strangely.
The Feierabend women seem to believe that luck is their handmaiden,
even though happiness does not necessarily follow. It is soon discovered
that generations previous, the Feierabends made a contract with a
powerful, otherworldly force, and it is up to Will and his best friend
to unravel the riddle of this supernatural bargain in order to save
Livvy from her predestined fate.

Excerpt:
“Don’t pay any attention to him, Ned,” the man said. “He’s crazy.”
I hear that a lot. I wanted to kill him. I usually carry a gun for just such occasions, but they are no longer allowed on commercial
flights, so I rammed the heel of my hand upward, into his nose and drove the bone into his brain, such as it was.
Well, then, all hell broke loose. So to speak. First of all, there was the blood; you hardly ever see blood on a commercial flight.
And then he was making this honking noise, trying to breathe and spraying blood all over the magazines in the seat pocket, and
the back of the seat as well. Then he jerked once and died, but it was too late. All the other passengers were standing up, trying
to get out of their seats, which are all jammed together, economy class wise, so it was like a little mini-riot. And here was the
stewardess, excuse me, flight attendant, back again.
“Sir, sir,” she was saying, meaning, of course, me. One only gets called “sir” by cops and such, so I got alarmed. Sure enough,
there was a big guy behind me, trying to grab my arms and waving plastic handcuffs.
You can imagine the chaos. I figured it was time to split. The big guy wasn’t so big with a fork in his carotid; even a plastic fork
will do if you know how to wield it. I jammed him face down between the seats to bleed out and grabbed the gun out his ankle
holster, and there’s nothing like a gun, even a little one, to cool things out. It’s like waving a magic wand. Everybody got real quiet.
Even the kid was quiet. The “Ned.” He was watching me like a hawk or maybe an owl, all owl-eyed.

When Julia Hernandez leaves her husband, shoots a real estate developer,
and then vanishes without a trace, she slips out of the world she knew
and into the Simulacrum—a place where human history is both guided
and thwarted by the conflict between a species of anarchist wasps and a
collective of hyperintelligent spiders. When Julia’s ex-husband Raymond
spots her in a grocery store he doesn’t usually patronize, he’s soon drawn
into an underworld of radical political gestures where Julia is the new
media sensation of both this world and the Simulacrum. Told ultimately
from the collective point of view of another species, this allegorical
novel plays with the elements of the Simulacrum apparent in real life—
media reports, business speak, blog entries, text messages, psychological-
evaluation forms, and the lies lovers tell one another—and poses a
fascinating idea that displaces human beings from the center of the
universe and makes them simply the pawns of two warring species.
Nick Mamatas is the author of the novels Move Under Ground and
Under My Roof, as well as the short story collection You Might Sleep.
His writing has been translated into German, Italian, and Greek, and
he has been nominated for the Bram Stoker and International Horror

Excerpt:
Finally, Julia turned back to her work, more careful than before, her arms taffy from the scraping of the soap to form those thick
wide letters. Every soap wrapper, each little cardboard box, was placed back into one of the plastic bags from the convenience stores.
Y was triumphant, a cheerleader with arms splayed, holding pom-poms. The Us were easy, almost soothing, though they required
extensive kneeling. Sadly, Julia had to make the O as a U with a little half-oval on top. The round joviality of O was beyond the
medium of concrete and soap, at least given the work that had come before.
When Julia was done with the message, she turned and tried to pull the tarps from the scaff olding, but her hands were still slippery
and her fingers weak and stiff from all the grasping. She tugged hard and nearly stomped her foot. Julia had to swallow that urge,
just to avoid falling from the scaffold and hitting the two paths on the way down to the sidewalk. Still determined, she lowered
herself down, one level at a time, like an infant scooting down a flight of steps on legs and butt, till she hit the Dumpster with a
satisfying thud. She opened the flap that she wasn’t standing atop, and instantly found a shark-finned shard of cement. After a quick
rinse of her hands in puddle water, and drying them against her blouse, it was back up the scaffolding, and the slicing went easy.

The German war machine is in retreat as the Russians advance. In
Warsaw, Resistance fighters rise up against their Nazi occupiers, but
the Germans retaliate, ruthlessly leveling the once-beautiful city.
American Adam Nowak has been dropped into Poland by British
intelligence as an assassin and Resistance fighter. During the
Warsaw Uprising he meets Natalia, a covert operative who has lost
everything—just as he has. Amid the Allied power struggle left by
Germany’s defeat, Adam and Natalia join in a desperate hunt for
the 1940 Soviet order authorizing the murders of 20,000 Polish
army officers and civilians. If they can find the Katyn Order before
the Russians do, they just might change the fate of Poland.

Wings
A Novel of World War II Flygirls
Karl Friedrich
• Co-op available
Based on the true World War II stories of America’s first female military
pilots, this historic novel follows the story of a young woman from a
dirt-poor farm family. Sally Ketchum has little chance of bettering
her life until a mysterious barnstormer named Tex teaches her to fly
and to dare to love. But when Tex dies in a freak accident, Sally must
make her own way in the world. She enrolls in the U.S. military’s
Women Airforce Service Pilots (WASP) program at a special school
known as Avenger, where she learns to fly the biggest, fastest, meanest
planes. She also reluctantly becomes involved with Beau Bayard, a
flight instructor and aspiring writer who seems to offer her every-
thing she could want. Despite her obvious mastery of flying, many
members of the military are unable to accept that a “skirt” has any
place in a cockpit. Soon Sally finds herself struggling against a high-
powered Washington lawyer that wants to close down Avenger once
and for all.
Karl Friedrich has worked as a newspaper reporter, a magazine and
public relations writer, an advertising copywriter, and a photographer,
among a variety of other things. He lives in Camas, Washington.

Excerpt:
The last trace of fun tightened out of Dixie’s face. “I hope you’ll forgive me, hon, but you wouldn’t be my first pick from a crowd of
strangers to be a pilot.”
She didn’t care if Dixie had a thousand hours of flying time, and money to burn. She wasn’t going to let anyone call her a liar. “And
you wouldn’t be my first, nor for that matter my last, pick as someone to go barnstorming with,” she snarled. “I doubt you’d last one
night in a cornfield with no plumbing and a breakfast of cold beans, while you hoped and prayed for enough paying passengers
before sundown to eat as well again the next morning.”
All the parts of Dixie’s face snapped to a dead stop. “You’re a barnstormer? You made money flyin’? Is that what you’re sayin’ ?”
Her eyes bulged.
“Texas!” Sally said. “Oklahoma! Arkansas! For six months, for about three-hundred hours. Yes, that’s what I’m saying. I don’t know
how many hours exactly because we were too busy flying to keep count.” Her nose always ran when she lost her temper. She reached
into the pocket of her dress for a handkerchief but came up empty.
An expensive piece of embroidered cloth appeared in Dixie’s hand.
Sally took the handkerchief and blew her nose, then carefully refolded the cloth.
Dixie stuffed the piece back into her bag without as much as a glance. “Are you married, honey ?”
Sally turned away to the window. She wanted to be alone.
“Gum?” In the reflection of the glass, Dixie was holding out two sticks, a rare commodity for a civilian in wartime rationing. Sally
wondered where she’d gotten it.
She shook her head.
Dixie nudged, “The gum or being married?”

score for the death of his father and brother in the first Persian

Excerpt:
Ignorance is a good way to buy time, and I’m a natural at playing dumb. I shouted to Tezo over the crowd, “What’s the goal?”
“The what?”
“Knockout? Submission?”
His eyes got sleepier. “Please. All that scar tissue on your head and you don’t know where you are?” He kept his eyes on me and
pointed at Jairo. “You, kill him.” Reversed the eyes and finger: “You, kill him.”
“What are the rules?”
Tezo pulled the chrome revolver out of his pants. “I’ll let you know if you do something wrong. But, you know. Don’t hold your
breath, huh? Now let’s see something or one of you is fighting on one leg.”
Jairo took another step forward. Didn’t step back. Kept coming. By the time I realized he wasn’t going to stop, I was almost cornered
in my end. He had a wide stance to keep from slipping in the muck. My left leg wanted to zip into his groin, but I made it stay planted
and pushed off to my right. His hands reached out, looking like they did part-time work dropping cars into crushing machines, and I
slapped them away as I slid around his left side and ended up at his end of the pit. He stood at my end, shook his arms loose, rolled
his neck, and came at me again.
He spread his arms out to their full wingspan; it looked like he could have tickled both walls. He closed in like a trash compactor,
like a hawk zeroing in for the bash and snag. The crowd started making screeching sounds, their arms out. Jairo crossed the middle
ground into my space, his eyes on mine to see where I was going. I looked left; he leaned that way. I darted right; he was already
there. He got his left hand on my shirt and pulled me in. We were close to the bleacher wall. The light changed as people crowded the
edge to look down on us.
Jairo shot his right hand around, grabbed the back of my belt, snaked his left hand over my right shoulder, got another handful of
shirt, and hugged me close. I dropped to avoid getting hip-tossed into the sludge.

deaths that uncovers the unexpected

Tampered
A Dr. Zol Szabo Medical Mystery
Ross Pennie
“Tainted is fascinating and fast-paced, a medical thriller with the
high-stakes tension of a frightening epidemic. Ross Pennie knows
how to weave real science with crackling suspense.”
—Tess Gerritsen, New York Times–bestselling author,
The Keepsake, on Tainted
• Co-op available
When a bout of food poisoning strikes a residence for lively seniors
blessed with generous pensions and high-ranking political connec-
tions, Dr. Zol Szabo, public health doctor turned medical detective,
assembles his investigative team. But the epidemic’s source proves
elusive; the death count rises and when the scourge threatens
someone close to Zol, he calls in his friend and colleague Hamish
Wakefield, a microbe connoisseur with a nose for exotic diagnoses.
Though Hamish uncovers other dangers, he can’t crack the puzzle,
and neither can the health unit’s outbreak-hunting whiz kid. It
takes the observant octogenarians to expose the deaths for what
they really are: a string of murders. Fast-paced and intricately
plotted, Tampered is second in a series of books to feature Dr. Zol
Szabo and his quirky surrounding cast of mystery-solving public
health officials.
Ross Pennie is a physician and a professor at McMaster

Excerpt:
Zol Szabo peered across the sea of silvery heads bobbing in the buffet line at Camelot Lodge. Usually, he looked forward to these
monthly Sunday brunches with Art Greenwood, his ex-wife’s granddad. Art, the only member of Francine’s family who hadn’t
smoked himself into an early grave, sparkled with wisdom and wit in defiance of his age and physical restrictions. Best of all, Art
and his tablemates never let political correctness get in the way of a candid opinion or a good story.
But today, Zol saw only clinical diagnoses smouldering through the retirement residence: the wobbly knees of rheumatoid arthritis,
the stooped backs of osteoporosis, the trembling hands of Parkinson’s, the vacant eyes of macular degeneration.
Zol forced another smile at Art, who was taking his place at the piano in the sitting room on the other side of the archway. Zol
hoped Art was well enough to play. He’d looked pale and drawn when he’d greeted Zol a few minutes ago and confessed he’d
been hit by another bout of fever and the runs earlier in the week. That made it his third bout in the past couple of months.
And he wasn’t the only one. Dozens of others had been hit with the same bug. Art denied any headache, thank goodness. When
headache compounded the fever and diarrhea, the result was lethal. In the past month alone, two of the converted mansion’s
thirty-eight residents had died within hours of a blinding headache compounding their explosive stools.

When Steve Nastos is wrongfully accused of murdering his dentist—
a man whom he believes committed an unspeakable crime against
his daughter—he decides to take the law into his own hands. Freed
on bail, he attempts to track down the actual killer in a town where
laws are seen more as guidelines and law enforcement agents adhere
to their own moral relativism. Handicapped by a recovering alcoholic
lawyer, a rogue cop, and a two-faced judge, Nastos has the cards
stacked against him. As his estranged yet beloved wife inadvertently
becomes involved in the case, the stakes become higher, and Nastos
is forced to protect her.

Excerpt:
The Impala smoothly drove past the Gardiner Expressway, south on Cherry Street. Nastos turned left, following a sign for the
Cherry Beach Park. Away from the streetlights, on the north side of Lake Ontario, a person can look south and see not much of
anything but open water. Although there was a tree line about a mile south of shore from the Toronto Islands, the combination of
thickening mist and blackness from overcast skies erased any contrasts in the black of night. It was as though nothing existed
beyond a fifty-metre radius.
“I don’t recognise this part of town—where are we?” Harper asked.
Nastos put the car in park, turned the lights off and sat there. The outside world had disappeared. The detective turned and spoke
to Harper in hushed tones. “Listen, I’m going to make this really easy for you. Tell me who those two guys are in those pictures,
the pictures where you’re raping that little kid.”
Harper let out an awkward laugh with a this guy is kidding me, right? expression on his face. Then his twisted smile froze as he
wondered what was going to happen next. This was about the time they all did that. “My lawyer’s going be all over this guy if he
touches me,” he said, barely audibly, as if ready to confront the fear signals his body was no doubt sending him. More forcefully,
Harper said, “Get me my lawyer. Take me to the police station so I can make my call.”

won the most prestigious golf tournament for the sixth time at the
astonishing age of 46. Though he was not a favorite to win—ranked
160th on the PGA Tour money list and six years without a win at a
major championship—Nicklaus found redemption in competition
and reasserted his golf legacy with an inspiring win that many still
regard as the most exciting Masters ever. Hanging on for the first
three rounds of the tournament, Nicklaus charged ahead in the final
round, securing a heart-pounding and history-making victory. This
book is full of details about the crowning achievement of Nicklaus’s
career, the Masters championship itself, and profiles of some of the
finest golf players in the sport at the peak of their careers, such as
Seve Ballesteros, Tom Kite, and Greg Norman.

Excerpt:
Moments after Watson putted, Jack’s ball dropped in. Nantz
and other CBS commentators could barely be heard above the
crowd’s earsplitting reaction. Some were transfixed as they
yelled, as if only their mouths could move.
“When he made his putt for birdie,” Nantz said, “the only
thing I could think to say was ‘The Bear has come out of
hibernation!’”
Some patrons immediately made a dash for 17 to witness what
appeared to be the continuing unfolding of a miracle. Jack
smiled at his son. There was nothing he could think to say, and
he was afraid that if he tried he would become choked up.
In an astonishing display of power, skill, and experience,
Nicklaus had played the previous eight holes birdie-birdie-
birdie-bogey-birdie-par-eagle-birdie. Through sixteen holes,
he was six under, and eight under for the tournament.
He was tied for first, with Kite and Ballesteros. Everything,
now, rested on 17 and 18.

Strike Combinations
Mark Hatmaker
• Co-op available
• Author’s previous books sold more than 140,000 copies
• Part of the MMA Mastery series
Covering the essential tactic and art of striking in a series of blows,
this guide illustrates how today’s best mixed martial arts fighters
have discovered the devastating effect of “punches in bunches,” or
strike combinations—a mix that includes fists, kicks, elbows, and
knees. The importance of striking in multiples of three is emphasized
with an explanation of how to stage strikes in order to maximize
load and release, counterstriking, creating angles, and straight striking.
Also included is the tactical role of footwork, how to merge defensive
and offensive moves, and overcoming the various challenges posed
by range. Avoiding a common blend of different styles, this reference
takes the most efficient combinations culled from elite competition
and presents them in stair-stepped drill sets, enabling fighters to utilize
the same striking approaches advocated by the best coaches and
competitors in the business.
Mark Hatmaker is the author of Boxing Mastery, the MMA Mastery
series, the No Holds Barred Fighting series, and No Second Chance.
He has produced more than 40 instructional videos, and he has
extensive experience in the combat arts, including boxing, wrestling,
jiujitsu, and Muay Thai. A highly regarded coach of professional

Expert defense tactics for any threatening situation
Combatives for Street Survival series
Kelly McCann
• Author’s previous book sold more than 125,000 copies
The essentials of combatives—practical self-defense strategies—are detailed in this series of three distinct volumes. The first disc
defines combatives, reviewing introductory concepts such as index positions; various footwork and blocks; defensive skills; hand,
elbow, and knee strikes; and kicks. The second disc explores how to counter attacks by armed assailants, illustrating scenarios such
as pistol attacks to the abdomen and head as well as from behind, slashing knife attacks and bludgeon attacks, and how to use the
jugular and clavicle notch as advantages in a counterattack. Take-down tools, situational “self-offense” scenarios, and full-speed
sparring demonstrations are also included, broken down for easy understanding and application to individual training. The third and
final disc explores combative principles that apply to nearly every attack scenario, incorporating how to effectively train with a partner
for maximum street-fighting efficacy and the psychological dynamics of conflict for hard-hitting retaliation within legal limits. Six
real-world scenarios depict the “do” and “don’t” mandates for surviving assaults in parking lots, loading zones, stairways, kitchens,
and inside cars.

Horsemanship returned to its original,
natural state

Riding Free
Bitless, Bridleless or Bareback
Andrea Eschbach and Markus Eschbach
Demonstrating how to work freely with a horse in its most natu-
ral state, this equestrian guide covers the essentials of minimizing
the use of artificial equipment while riding horses. Whether it’s
riding bitless, bridleless, or without a saddle, research continues
to show that natural riding is gentler and puts less stress on the
horse. The step-by-step instructions in this manual combine
Native American horsemanship with classical training to make
the transition from riding traditionally to riding free gradual and
safe, and helps to develop a more harmonious relationship
between horse and human.
Andrea Eschbach and Markus Eschbach are riding instructors
and horse trainers.

The trees featured in this collection are striking in their resem-
blance to humans—they grow, stretch, ache, bend, and break;
provide protection and comfort; and express tenderness and
love—offering readers a new perspective of and appreciation for
the natural environment. The photographs reveal and identify
not only recognizable emotions in the branches and trunks but
also the extent of what trees do for humanity, such as clean the
air and shade homes and gardens. The images also speak to the
spiritual grandeur of trees, encouraging a greater consciousness
of the fundaments of nature and of humankind’s relationship to
something greater than themselves.
