A Stranger in the Kingdom Book Excerpt:

This novel of murder and its aftermath in a small Vermont town in the 1950s is “reminiscent of To Kill a Mockingbird . . . Absorbing” (The New York Times). In Kingdom County, Vermont, the town’s new Presbyterian minister is a black man, an unsettling fact for some of the locals. When a French-Canadian woman takes refuge in his parsonage—and is subsequently murdered—suspicion immediately falls on the clergyman. While his thirteen-year-old son struggles in the shadow of the town’s accusations, and his older son, a lawyer, fights to defend him, a father finds himself on trial more for who he is than for what he might have done. “Set in northern Vermont in 1952, Mosher’s tale of racism and murder is powerful, viscerally affecting and totally contemporary in its exposure of deep-seated prejudice and intolerance . . . [A] big, old-fashioned novel.” —Publishers Weekly “A real mystery in the best and truest sense.”—Lee Smith, The New York Times Book Review A Winner of the New England Book Award

Connectionist Models of Neurocognition and Emergent Behavior Book Excerpt:

This volume collects together most of the papers presented at the Twelfth Neural Computation and Psychology Workshop (NCPW12) held in 2010 at Birkbeck College (England). The conference invited submissions on neurocomputational models of all cognitive and psychological processes. The special theme of this conference was “From Theory to Applications”, which allowed submissions of pure theoretical work and of pure applied work. This topic extended the boundaries of the conference and highlighted the extent to which computational models of cognition and models in general are integrated in the cognitive sciences. The chapters in this book cover a wide range of research topics in neural computation and psychology, including cognitive development, language processing, higher-level cognition, but also ecology-based modeling of cognition, philosophy of science, and real-world applications. Contents:An Ecology-Based Approach to Perceptual Modelling (E L Byrne, D P A Corney and R B Lotto)Early Development of Visual Abilities (Alessio Plebe)The Importance of Low Spatial Frequencies for Categorization of Emotional Facial Expressions (L Lopez, P Bonin, N Vermeulen, A Meot and M Mermillod)Modeling Speech Perception with Restricted Boltzmann Machines (Michael Klein, Louis ten Bosch and Lou Boves)Learning the Visual Word Code (T Hannagan and J Grainger)What are The Functional Units in Reading?

White Mexican Book Excerpt:

In most conditions, what you experience in life will mold and shape how you view your world and yourself. If in your world your experience is negative, you could become molded and shaped with negative thoughts, feelings and beliefs, leading to a trap of destruction. Not everybody overcomes them like we see in the movies. Not everyone escapes from a bad environment (thats more of Hollywood). The opposite is also very possible, on the hindsight. This fictional story discusses the importance of self identity and how easy it is to fall into playing your untrue role of who you are, and even if you think you are happy and successful youre still far from knowing your true identity and role of who you are: living and departing in a lie. This story covers many personal, opinionated philosophy, as well as objective, researched and so-called professional philosophy. A philosophy discussed on conspiracy, social and psychological behavior, religious and political; furthermore, discussion, on what is truth. In order to understand the narrators point of view, you have to understand some history on Indigenous or Nican Tlaca, or Mexican Indians, as you more likely know them by. How lost they have become in a Eurocentric world, and the aftermath consequences deriving from it. If you have an objective mind with the understanding in which its meant to be, it may inspire you to become a better person, or strive for who you are meant to be.

L A JOURNAL Book Excerpt:

There has always been a lot of confusion and misconception regarding the short-story. What exactly is it? What exactly defines it? And if a true literary artiste is capable of churning out a whole novel, why waste time on a bunch of stories in the first place? C. Bradford Eastland, author of the groundbreaking novel Where Gods Gamble, answers all these questions and more in his masterwork collection of short fiction, “L.A. Journal”. Throughout the twenty-two stories of this nostalgic, regionally driven volume, Eastland the artist’s lifelong mission becomes clear; to leave behind a handful of powerful, original, timeless vignettes of the times and places in which he lived. Along the way, he takes a stab at making sense of many of the great issues—love, lust, war, religion, friendship, betrayal, craziness, joblessness, homelessness, homophobia, racism, patriotism, terrorism, and the Giants versus the Dodgers—we humans brush up against every day of our lives. So take a look at Los Angeles through the eyes of a bum, a bartender, a disillusioned writer, an old Negro Leagues ballplayer, and a little boy angry at God—among others. You might wind up seeing one of the greatest and most mocked cities on Earth in a wholly different light.

Stumptown Kid Book Excerpt:

This dramatic and moving story set in the days of the Negro Leagues illustrates the true meanings of friendship, prejudice, and heroism Twelve-year-old Charlie Nebraska wants two things he can’t get: to make the local Wildcats Baseball team and to have life to return to the way it was before his father died two years earlier in the Korean War. Then Charlie meets Luther Peale, a stranger who quietly and mysteriously arrives in the small town of Holden, Iowa, and sets up camp near the river. Luther is a former Negro Baseball League player, and Charlie loves baseball. The two strike up a friendship and Luther agrees to coach Charlie’s fledgling neighborhood baseball team for a game against the Wildcats. But many of Holden’s white residents are suspicious of Luther because of his skin color. And when Charlie inadvertently reveals a secret of Luther’s, violence erupts in the town and both Luther and Charlie are drawn into serious danger. Authors Carol Gorman and Ron J. Findley have created two highly memorable, emotionally complex characters in this dramatic story that illustrates the meanings of friendship, prejudice, and heroism.

Paddling Pastimes Book Excerpt:

Adventures on rivers and at baseball stadiums, there is no set time to each experience, no two are alike in dimensions, each river and ballpark visit is excitedly anticipated, and (except for a few enclosed exceptions) weather conditions can impact the adventure. Canoeing and kayaking down a river and an afternoon at the ballpark are both important to our spiritual well-being. Pittsburgh, Minneapolis, Chicago, Milwaukee, Cleveland, Detroit. All are major Midwestern cities that evolved on the banks of the rivers that flowed through them: the Allegheny, the Mississippi, the Chicago, the Milwaukee, the Cuyahoga, and the Detroit. Six rivers that were critical to six Midwestern towns in their discovery, development, transportation, commerce, and enjoyment. Paddling trips down each of the six rivers, at least the segment of the rivers flowing through these big cities, are wide, deep, slow-moving affairs —not your usual canoeing and kayaking rural, backwoods adventures—that combine the joy of paddling with fascinating glimpses of history and architecture on the riverbanks. With backgrounds provided by river tour guides and history books, we’ll share with you the unique view from the water, in words and photos, of each city’s riverside landmarks. One of the landmarks each city has in common is a major league ballpark either along or near the river. Coinciding with the 1800s industrial development of these six Midwest cities was the birth of our national pastime, the grand old game of baseball. Baseball was the balance needed to counteract our country’s often turbulent shift from a society of primarily family farmers to Industrial Revolution clock-punchers. The beauty of the hit-and-run, the green grass of a sunlit field, a ballpark frank and a cold beer, brought the same smile and serenity in the 1800s as they do today.

KC at Bat Book Excerpt:

Charlie Beresford would rather be doing anything this summer than hauling furniture for a moving company. Come September, he'll be leaving for college, away from the awkwardness of Augustinian Academy, away from his father's constant hints about prospective girlfriends. Then Kevin Conroy—the Mighty KC--joins the moving crew. A star baseball player bound for the big leagues, Charlie is shocked when cool, confident KC suggests hanging out, especially when KC asks him to stay over--and the happiness their connection brings Charlie. But the summer is changing Charlie--putting muscles on his skinny frame, compelling him to face hard truths, showing him how it feels not just to lose your heart but to break someone else's. Funny, sweet, and moving, Tom Mendicino's insightful coming-of-age story perfectly evokes that moment when you stop living life from the safety of the bleachers--and finally step up to home plate. Praise for Tom Mendicino's Probation "Thoughtful, textured and poignant. . .an exciting impressive debut." --Time Out NY "A smart, engaging, witty, sad and unusual book about the complicated nature of family and love." --Bart Yates

Namath a Biography Book Excerpt:

In between Babe Ruth and Michael Jordan there was Joe Namath, one of the few sports heroes to transcend the game he played. Novelist and former sports-columnist Mark Kriegel’s bestselling biography of the iconic quarterback details his journey from steel-town pool halls to the upper reaches of American celebrity—and beyond. The first of his kind, Namath enabled a nation to see sports as show biz. For an entire generation he became a spectacle of booze and broads, a guy who made bachelorhood seem an almost sacred calling, but it was his audacious “guarantee” of victory in Super Bowl III that ensured his legend. This unforgettable portrait brings readers from the gridiron to the go-go nightclubs as Kriegel uncovers the truth behind Broadway Joe and why his legend has meant so much to so many.
