In the bleak winter term of 1954 something terrible happens at Kirkston Abbey School for Boys. Forty years later a journalist hovers near the truth, buried long ago by the panicked authorities. Kirkston Abbey is no place for the weak: its rules are harsh and its discipline savage. So the struggling Jonathan Palmer cannot believe his luck when Richard Rokeby - tough, handsome, aloof - befriends him. But Rokeby's possessive friendship is suffocating and, what starts out as an innocent game amongst friends, takes a shocking turn as Palmer finds himself powerless to stop Rokeby from unleashing a horrifying fate on them all. A brilliantly clever psychological thriller, The Wishing Game launched Redmond to his bestseller status.

Conquering the Artists Struggle by stephen silver Book Resume:

I have met numerous artists in my life, many of whom seem to be unfulfilled in their creative journey. I feel it is the same for many professionals. I personally believe that when we start on this path, we have great passion; a burning desire. This is what establishes the goals we want to achieve. These goals may consist of getting that job in the studio, or the project we wanted to do. We may find that once this happens, we become dormant, and stop setting those goals. It then turns into complaints, frustration, and the constant questioning of, "What is it that I really want to do?" This book is a collection of my trials, and personal thoughts about life as an artist. It’s also about reminding ourselves of the importance of setting new goals, creating that passion and vision, and the courage and perseverance to ignite your dreams again. This book is written for you.

She is everything she ever wanted to be and nothing will ever be allowed to threaten that. But she is also human.

The Dark Net by Benjamin Percy Book Resume:

“Thrilling . . . one of the best Stephen King novels not written by the master himself. . . . The setup promises furious action, and Percy delivers, like [Richard] Matheson, like King. . . An awfully impressive literary performance.”—New York Times Book Review “Masterful crafting . . . a horror story for our times.”—Minneapolis Star Tribune The Dark Net is real. An anonymous and often criminal arena that exists in the secret far reaches of the Web, some use it to manage Bitcoins, pirate movies and music, or traffic in drugs and stolen goods. And now, an ancient darkness is gathering there as well. This force is threatening to spread virally into the real world unless it can be stopped by members of a ragtag crew, including a twelve-year-old who has been fitted with a high-tech visual prosthetic to combat her blindness; a technophobic journalist; a one-time child evangelist with an arsenal in his basement; and a hacker who believes himself a soldier of the Internet. Set in present-day Portland, The Dark Net is a cracked-mirror version of the digital nightmare we already live in, a timely and wildly imaginative techno-thriller about the evil that lurks in real and virtual spaces, and the power of a united few to fight back. “This is horror literature’s bebop, bold, smart, confident in its capacity to redefine its genre from the ground up. Read this book, but take a firm grip on your hat before you start.”—Peter Straub

Blood on the Forge by William Attaway Book Resume:

This brutally gripping novel about the African-American Great Migration follows the three Moss brothers, who flee the rural South to work in industries up North. Delivered by day into the searing inferno of the steel mills, by night they encounter a world of surreal devastation, crowded with dogfighters, whores, cripples, strikers, and scabs. Keenly sensitive to character, prophetic in its depiction of environmental degradation and globalized labor, Attaway's novel is an unprecedneted confrontation with the realities of American life, offering an apocalyptic vision of the melting pot not as an icon of hope but as an instrument of destruction. Blood on the Forge was first published in 1941, when it attracted the admiring attention of Richard Wright and Ralph Ellison. It is an indispensable account of a major turning point in black history, as well as a triumph of individual style, charged with the concentrated power and poignance of the blues.

Over the years the motion picture career of Jimmy Stewart has been highly praised and well documented. But did you know that he also had an extensive career on the radio? Among the pages of this well researched book, you will read the detailed work of Stewart on the radio. When Stewart lent his talent “on the air,” radio was at its prime and was the main source of entertainment in the homes of America and around the world. Stewart was at the heart of all of this. In all, his radio career spanned seven decades. He did comedy with Bob Hope, Jack Benny, Bing Crosby and Mortimer Snerd. He did drama on Lux Radio Theatre, Screen Guild Theater and Suspense. He even brought some of his best films to the listening audience, including Harvey, The Philadelphia Story and Winchester ’73. Go back now to those glory days of radio, when your “mind’s eye” and a healthy dose of imagination brought you genuine, clean fun and entertainment. Back to a time when glamorous Hollywood stars weren’t afraid to have their voices do all the acting for them…no makeup, no costumes, no pictures of any kind. Come back to a time when Jimmy Stewart traveled the airwaves. Enjoy!

Finite and Infinite Games by James Carse Book Resume:

“There are at least two kinds of games,” states James Carse as he begins this extraordinary book. “One could be called finite; the other infinite.” Finite games are the familiar contests of everyday life; they are played in order to be won, which is when they end. But infinite games are more mysterious. Their object is not winning, but ensuring the continuation of play. The rules may change, the boundaries may change, even the participants may change—as long as the game is never allowed to come to an end. What are infinite games? How do they affect the ways we play our finite games? What are we doing when we play—finitely or infinitely? And how can infinite games affect the ways in which we live our lives? Carse explores these questions with stunning elegance, teasing out of his distinctions a universe of observation and insight, noting where and why and how we play, finitely and infinitely. He surveys our world—from the finite games of the playing field and playing board to the infinite games found in culture and religion—leaving all we think we know illuminated and transformed. Along the way, Carse finds new ways of understanding everything from how an actress portrays a role, to how we engage in sex, from the nature of evil, to the nature of science. Finite games, he shows, may offer wealth and status, power and glory. But infinite games offer something far more subtle and far grander. Carse has written a book rich in insight and aphorism. Already an international literary event, Finite and Infinite Games is certain to be argued about and celebrated for years to come. Reading it is the first step in learning to play the infinite game.

There's nothing wrong with Wilma Sturtz. She's perfectly nice. But nobody cares about nice at Claverford, her middle school.
