GoatMan by Book Resume:

The dazzling success of The Toaster Project, including TV appearances and an international book tour, leaves Thomas Thwaites in a slump. His friends increasingly behave like adults, while Thwaites still lives at home, "stuck in a big, dark hole." Luckily, a research grant offers the perfect out: a chance to take a holiday from the complications of being human—by transforming himself into a goat. What ensues is a hilarious and surreal journey through engineering, design, and psychology, as Thwaites interviews neuroscientists, animal behaviorists, prosthetists, goat sanctuary workers, and goatherds. From this, he builds a goat exoskeleton—artificial legs, helmet, chest protector, raincoat from his mum, and a prosthetic goat stomach to digest grass (with help from a pressure cooker and campfire)—before setting off across the Alps on four legs with a herd of his fellow creatures. Will he make it? Do Thwaites and his readers discover what it truly means to be human? GoatMan tells all in Thwaites's inimitable style, which NPR extols as "a laugh-out- loud-funny but thoughtful guide through his own adventures."

Blues Chased a Rabbit by Seymour Blicker Book Resume:

BLUES CHASED A RABBIT is the gripping story of Jason Defoy, a black musician whose cool life in New York seems light years away from the miserable Mississippi origins he recalls with frustrated anger and scorn. The accidental death of his pregnant wife suddenly disrupts his life and forces a confrontation. Unable to face the torment in his mind, unable to find solace in drugs, simulated sex, or old friendships, he finds himself driven like a hunted animal to his roots in the South. Nameless and penniless, alone on the Mississippi Road, he falls victim to the medieval vagrancy laws which, to this day, permit southern farmers to exploit free labour. He becomes a virtual slave, chattelled to Harlan Smith, a southern white farmer struggling to hold on to a way of life he knows is fast disappearing. The relationships between Jason, his fellow captive Robart, and their sadistic yet poignantly wretched white master, form the background of a story which is unique in its perceptive treatment of the violence underlying the black-white confrontation in America today. BLUES CHASED A RABBIT is a brutally human novel which tells the truth as it has rarely been told before.

Cormac McCarthy and the Signs of Sacrament by Matthew L. Potts Book Resume:

Although scholars have widely acknowledged the prevalence of religious reference in the work of Cormac McCarthy, this is the first book on the most pervasive religious trope in all his works: the image of sacrament, and in particular, of eucharist. Informed by postmodern theories of narrative and Christian theologies of sacrament, Matthew Potts reads the major novels of Cormac McCarthy in a new and insightful way, arguing that their dark moral significance coheres with the Christian theological tradition in difficult, demanding ways. Potts develops this account through an argument that integrates McCarthy's fiction with both postmodern theory and contemporary fundamental and sacramental theology. In McCarthy's novels, the human self is always dispossessed of itself, given over to harm, fate, and narrative. But this fundamental dispossession, this vulnerability to violence and signs, is also one uniquely expressed in and articulated by the Christian sacramental tradition. By reading McCarthy and this theology alongside postmodern accounts of action, identity, subjectivity, and narration, Potts demonstrates how McCarthy exploits Christian theology in order to locate the value of human acts and relations in a way that mimics the dispossessing movement of sacramental signs. This is not to claim McCarthy for theology, necessarily, but it is to assert that McCarthy generates his account of what human goodness might look like in the wake of metaphysical collapse through the explicit use of Christian theology.

Being a Beast by Charles Foster Book Resume:

A passionate naturalist explores what it’s really like to be an animal—by living like them How can we ever be sure that we really know the other? To test the limits of our ability to inhabit lives that are not our own, Charles Foster set out to know the ultimate other: the non-humans, the beasts. And to do that, he tried to be like them, choosing a badger, an otter, a fox, a deer, and a swift. He lived alongside badgers for weeks, sleeping in a sett in a Welsh hillside and eating earthworms, learning to sense the landscape through his nose rather than his eyes. He caught fish in his teeth while swimming like an otter; rooted through London garbage cans as an urban fox; was hunted by bloodhounds as a red deer, nearly dying in the snow. And he followed the swifts on their migration route over the Strait of Gibraltar, discovering himself to be strangely connected to the birds. A lyrical, intimate, and completely radical look at the life of animals—human and other—Being a Beast mingles neuroscience and psychology, nature writing and memoir to cross the boundaries separating the species. It is an extraordinary journey full of thrills and surprises, humor and joy. And, ultimately, it is an inquiry into the human experience in our world, carried out by exploring the full range of the life around us.

As a poor kid growing up, it was a challenge to have fun and not cost much, if anything. This book is specifically designed to let everybody know that fun doesn’t have a price tag on it if an imagination and a warped sense of humor is part of the equation. Anybody can have a ton of fun, and make lifelong memories without getting into too much trouble. O.K. some of these stories are stretched to the borders of reality, what? Put yourself in the 60’s and remember some of the stuff you pulled. As we go through the elementary school years, then junior high and high school, the fun gets more sophisticated. This will not be done though without having the “goofy and stupid” element ever present. If the warped sense of humor offends you in anyway, please accept this apology, and consider the source. The magic of the 1960’s along with a small West Texas group of kids is an experience. Please consider the times compared to today’s technology, and society. Back then, parents were to be loved, respected and feared, Nowadays, nobody knows the difference from beating a kid, and spanking a kid. What a shame. Also, there is a section about some of the cars back then. the 50’s and 60’s was the absolute pinnacle of power and beautiful design. Without the 60’s, the muscle cars of the 70’s would not have been born. Without the 60’s, our music of the 70’s and future decades would not have the roots to grow. Hippies, draft dodgers, moon walks, and the whole culture of youth changed drastically then. Teens came out of their controlled environment and grew in many directions. Some good, some not so good. many of the top performers were over-dosing on drugs. But, somehow, we made it through the 60’s no worse for the wear. On the lighter side of growing up, you can now enjoy this era. Either by reading about it first hand, or bringing your own memories and comparing them. Either way, it will be fun, a lot of fun.

The dialogues are well-written and the author’s meticulous care for plot elements infuses the story with great entertainment." K. C. Finn - "Author Joshua Braun has crafted a completely enchanting work of fiction with plenty of wit to offer readers. One of the features which I found particularly impressive about this piece was its styling, voice, and attitude, which make the author just as important as the story in a way that Sir Terry Pratchett would be proud of. I adored the character development, dynamics, and tongue-in-cheek humor." Ruffina Oserio - " Witch'n is well-plotted and the pacing is fast; there are twists that I didn’t see coming and the unpredictability in plot development makes the story a page-turning read. The descriptions are vivid and strong and from the very beginning, the reader is presented with horrifying images of the aftermath of evil magic. Joshua Braun’s novel is intelligently plotted and superbly executed."

I couldn't put it down as I was arrested by the protagonist's energetic personality and her unbelievable evilness. It's nothing like I've seen before... prepare for a wild, dark, different, and memorable experience!" It's all very well and good destroying the world, extinguishing any spark of hope, and ruling with an iron grip of fear and black magic. But nobody told the witch that running an administration of evil would be just so… dreary. Bored with solving little people's problems and the petty squabbles of her beastly advisors, the witch quits, leaving the world in a much worse state than she found it with a new evil quest. It's time to learn how to be a good person. There's just one teensy-tiny little problem… Being good doesn't come easily – after all, it's much easier to sacrifice babies and summon hideous demons to get things done. Seeking out her old nemesis, a legendary-hero-turned-academic (who she only imprisoned and tortured a little bit), she gives him an outlandish proposition: to help her make a dazzling transformation from wicked witch to good. It's an offer he can't refuse. The odd couple have a long, perilous journey ahead of them and a lot of psychological hang-ups to work through. Can an evil witch ever truly be reformed – and what could possibly go wrong when you're relying on your nemesis to be your BFF? Witch'n is a rip-roaring high fantasy satire with razor-sharp wit and penetrating social critique that fans of Terry Pratchett will find irresistible. If you love vulnerable wicked witches, b

"Hello, my name is Thomas Thwaites, and I have made a toaster." So begins The Toaster Project, the author's nine-month-long journey from his local appliance store to remote mines in the UK to his mother's backyard, where he creates a crude foundry. Along the way, he learns that an ordinary toaster is made up of 404 separate parts, that the best way to smelt metal at home is by using a method found in a fifteenth-century treatise, and that plastic is almost impossible to make from scratch. In the end, Thwaites's homemade toaster—a haunting and strangely beautiful object—cost 250 times more than the toaster he bought at the store and involved close to two thousand miles of travel to some of Britain's remotest locations. The Toaster Project may seem foolish, even insane. Yet, Thwaites's quixotic tale, told with self-deprecating wit, helps us reflect on the costs and perils of our cheap consumer culture, and in so doing reveals much about the organization of the modern world.

Those startled by seeing a hellhound run through their backyard, however, might also catch a glimpse of author Janice Tremeear and her team of researchers in hot pursuit of the mysteries of the Ozarks.

The Weiser Field Guide to Cryptozoology by Deena West Budd Book Resume:

A study of dozens of hidden animals—from the chupacabra to Mongolian death worms—drawing on eyewitness accounts from around the world. This informative book includes information, interviews, and stories about forty different cryptids seen around the world by credible eyewitnesses like policemen, rangers, and doctors. Readers will learn where and how to find flying humanoids, hairy humanoids, giants of all kinds including rabbits, bats, and spiders, goblins, vampires, werewolves, demons, aliens, and ghosts. Cryptozoology—a term coined in the 1950s by a French zoologist named Bernard Heuvelmans—is the study of hidden or unknown animals not recognized in standard zoology. From traditional cryptids like Big Foot, the Abominable Snowman, and Nessie, to mythical cryptids like unicorns, vampires, dragons, and werewolves, to lesser-known cryptids like bunyips (waterhorses), Encantado (Dolphin Men of Brazil), thunderbirds, mothmen, and chupacabra, these creatures are very much alive, says expert Deena West Budd, if beyond the realm of normal perception. The Weiser Field Guide to Cryptozoology includes a brief history of the field and surveys all the creatures for which any credible amount of research exists—as well as giving tips on how to spot these creatures and cautionary advice on how to interact with them. Includes two dozen line drawings rendered from eyewitness descriptions

“Ashhur will awaken in a blaze of fire…” ---- Mordan has lost their king, and Harruq Tun is a poor replacement. He has slain a god, but he cannot quell the unrest growing between the angels and the humans they are supposed to protect. The thin line between protectors and rulers blurs with each bloody death. An army of beast-men lays siege to the north, while in the south, the nation of Ker invades seeking to overthrow the rule of angels.

Wizards and paladins, priests and angels, they all seek to benefit from the chaos. But a single figure manipulates them all from the shadows, seeking to overthrow the kingdom Harruq and his friends have fought so desperately to defend, and replace it with another… THE KING OF THE VILE by David Dalglish New kingdoms arise from the ruins of the old. ------ About the Author: David Dalglish currently lives in rural Missouri with his wife Samantha, and daughters Morgan and Katherine.

Fire Arrow by Edith Pattou Book Resume:

The sequel to Hero’s Song from the bestselling author of East “has echoes of the genre’s masters—Lloyd Alexander, C.S. Lewis, and J.R.R. Tolkien” (School Library Journal). Breo-Saight, the young archer from Hero’s Song, has abandoned her lifelong mission to avenge her father’s murder. But just as she stops pursuing the murderers, they turn up again, leading Brie to her birthright—a fire arrow. The magical arrow leads Brie to a strange country, where she finds the family and happiness she’s never known. But she also finds evil at work—the doings of a sinister, one-eyed sorcerer named Balor. Though Brie has given up on vengeance, she knows she must follow her mission through to its bitter end if she is to save the people she’s grown to love. “With sympathetic characterizations (both human and animal), gruesome foes, and a sinister mastermind, as well as fast pacing, a well-realized landscape, violent clashes, and all the expected elements of good fantasy, Pattou offers a rousing story that is not only a strong sequel that begs yet another sequel but also a fine fantasy adventure that holds up on its own.”—Booklist “A much more accomplished book than its predecessor . . . replete with fascinating and fantastical images, creatures, and settings . . . an engrossing, well-crafted book, and will be much enjoyed by young fans of high fantasy.”—SF Site “Memorable and well-crafted . . .

A Fortress of Grey Ice by J. V. Jones Book Resume:

"Wonderful . . . J. V. Jones is a striking writer." So says Robert Jordan, the author of The Wheel of Time epic fantasy series. And Jones lives up to that praise in the highly charged epic adventure of Ash March and Raif Sevrance, two outcasts whose fate are entwined by ancient prophecies and need, in the cold, dark world that threatens to be torn asunder by a war to end all wars. Isolated by their birthrights, they are but two who fight the dreaded Endlords, and their strength and courage will be needed if the world is to be saved from darkness." Raif, wrongly accused and cut off from his clan by the treachery of their new headsman, has a talent for killing that is part of his curse and his burden. But he bears another burden of greater weight. Ash is a sacred warrior to the Sull, an ancient race whose numbers have declined. Raised as a foundling, never knowing her true history, she must learn to accept the terrible gifts of her heritage. But as Ash learns more of her greater fate, Raif's task looms dark and desperate, for he must journey through the nightmare realm of the Want, a place where even the Sull now fear to tread. For deep within the Want is the Fortress of Grey Ice, and there he must heal the breach in the Blindwall that already threatens the world. Should he fail, not even Ash's powers can save them. . . .

Fallen Angels by C. K. Quarterman Book Resume:

One of the most fascinating and strategic topics in ancient texts is the record of fallen angels, giants, and UFO's. Fallen angels and giants are shrouded in mystery and belong to the age of pyramids and other great wonders of the world. It is an epoch that was destroyed by God's judgment, a flood, which left the world everlastingly changed, the evidence of which is found in the tales, folklore, and traditions of many cultures around the world."There were giants in the earth in those days; and also after that, when the sons of God came in unto the daughters of men, and they bare children to them, the same became mighty men which were of old, men of renown" (Genesis 6:4).This vivid language defines the conspiracy of evil which has beset our world. The ancient books, Enoch and Jubilees, tell us of a race of nephilim, which are hybrids, alive in history and today, fathered by fallen angels. Strange as this may seem, the Lord declares that this conspiracy of evil is to be repeated before His return. Consequently, it is important from the standpoint of both understanding history and understanding the future that we understand these events.The world is in a slumber, asleep with the dream of a better tomorrow. While dark forces of fallen angels are arrayed against us, many today write about the approaching juggernaut of the apocalypseand well they should! Few, however, know or understand that fallen angels have brought us to this apocalypse, this apex of human history.The end of the world as we know it is about to take place. A storm is gathering, so terrible as to cause men's hearts to fail them for fear; we must not approach this coming apocalypse unaware and unarmed.

It's a Terrible Day in the Neighborhood They told you the suburbs were a great place to live. They said nothing bad could ever happen here. But they were wrong.

Too bad they’re the only ones who can hear it. • Death Takes a Holiday inn.
