Dreamland YA edition Book Excerpt:

As an adult book, Sam Quinones's Dreamland took the world by storm, winning the NBCC Award for General Nonfiction and hitting at least a dozen Best Book of the Year lists. Now, adapted for the first time for a young adult audience, this compelling reporting explains the roots of the current opiate crisis. In 1929, in the blue-collar city of Portsmouth, Ohio, a company built a swimming pool the size of a football field; named Dreamland, it became the vital center of the community. Now, addiction has devastated Portsmouth, as it has hundreds of small rural towns and suburbs across America. How that happened is the riveting story of Dreamland. Quinones explains how the rise of the prescription drug OxyContin, a miraculous and extremely addictive painkiller pushed by pharmaceutical companies, paralleled the massive influx of black tar heroin--cheap, potent, and originating from one small county on Mexico's west coast, independent of any drug cartel. Introducing a memorable cast of characters--pharmaceutical pioneers, young Mexican entrepreneurs, narcotics investigators, survivors, teens, and parents--Dreamland is a revelatory account of the massive threat facing America and its heartland.

Dreamland Book Excerpt:

The long-awaited new novel by the author of The Sooterkin and Miles McGinty It was just a little lie. But it has landed Nick Carmody in serious trouble. It didn't seem much - to say he was the one driving Danny Grogan's car when it was caught by a speed camera. And Danny's billionaire father has promised to make the lie worth his while. But Danny hasn't told him the full story, and when Nick Carmody stands up in court he doesn't quite know what it is he's admitting to. By the time he works it out, it is too late. Soon Nick's 'good deed' has hurled him into a nightmare of dirty secrets, corruption and increasing danger. It leaves him with no choice - he needs to disappear. Three years as a crime reporter taught him a lot about aliases, deception, and getting away with it. But Nick soon learns something else- the person you are pretending to be can be a lot more dangerous.

Dreamland Book Excerpt:

Arnold Joint is a middle-aged jovial detective working for the South Africa Police Department. For the last three years he’s been haunted by the unsolved murder of Samantha, his sister, and supported by his boss and colleagues he got by and tried to focus on other important cases. But the picture of his murdered sibling is unexpectedly and painfully brought up from his memory when the body of a young beautiful woman, along with her lover’s, is found exactly in the same condition as Samatha’s: a clean cut separating her head from her torso and the mysterious tattoo of a rose inked on her skin in a very intimate position. This time Detective Joint won’t stop until he finds the truth and will soon find himself entangled in a dangerous plot that involves so much more than he can imagine. When Nick Scott receives the call from a distraught Veronica Bings, the last thing he expects is to learn that his friend Mark, a pioneer in the development of Virtual Reality Software and Veronica’s husband, has been killed. But Nick, ex Major in the Royal Marines and founder of Executive Decision, an international security company, knows how to take the matter into his own hands and immediately starts digging into Mark’s murder, discovering the potential and the menace hidden in the depths of Virtual Reality, a parallel electronic world connecting every device with internet access. Matt Carbutt’s debut novel is an engaging, dark, layered thriller in which nothing is as it appears, a fast-paced intriguing spy story that will manage to captivate the lovers of this literary genre with every page. Matt Carbutt was born in England and immigrated to South Africa at a very young age. He currently lives in Noordhoek, Cape Town, South Africa with his wife, his young daughter, and Justice, the family timber wolf. Over the years, due to his business commitments in the electronic security industry, Matt has travelled extensively throughout Africa, gaining invaluable knowledge and experiences from the mysterious African continent. When he isn’t writing you’ll find him sailing Moonshadow II or plotting his next novel. Dreamland, an adult thriller, is his debut novel.

Dreamland Book Excerpt:

In Dreamland nothing is what it seems, so when a group of total strangers wake up in the dark, in a place they know nothing about, what could only be described as a quest begins as they search for reasoning and a way out. Having no idea how they arrived at this strange place, they must search for answers and determine who, or what, is keeping them here. Faced with real world scenarios to either succeed by doing what's necessary or perish with failure, they must learn to work together if they expect to survive. Guiding the way, and driven by a need to lead by example, ex U.S. Army Intelligence Agent Brad Miller puts his own life above all others and obtains the respect of a psychologist, a geek, a mentor, a dancer and a photojournalist. These people might be the last he ever sees, and the last friends he might ever make, as he attempts to free them from this strange place.

DREAMLAND Book Excerpt:

' Love ' Must I be Shakespeare to express my love one which was greater than life seeming to last forever, everlasting We had it so good, enjoying each other friends and lovers, or lovers and friends difficult to say what was first, or both at once Our love was the Sun splashing us brightly and the shimmering stars at night sending us kisses of love incessantly Our love were people smiling at us wishing us all the goodwills of the world and we ourselves, united in each other Everything was in place, rightfully and godly rivers of honey, seas of boundless beauty biodiversity serving us as we serving her But when you went away one day from me with no goodbye, no a word of farewell it was the end of the world for me, Romeo alike Stars crashed down on Earth the following night and I was swept away by the high seas a castaway on the ocean, in its full storm I was myself a bottle with a message inside saying I love you till the end of the world the bottle filled with the tears of my despair " Love " by Thaddeus Hutyra Copyright © Thaddeus Hutyra All Rights Reserved.

Dreamland Court Book Excerpt:

Set in the blighted industrial landscape of the Los Angeles basin, Dreamland Court is an underground love story. Just out of prison, Johnny Dalton returns home to find his wife Jackie, the mother of his two small children, passionately involved with one of his good friends. Doing everything in his power to win her back, Johnny blunders his way through one criminal enterprise after another. When the cops pick him up for being the only adult present at a wild teenage party, he’s sent back to jail. The strange thing is, as far as Jackie is concerned, Johnny’s maneuvers actually work. Reminiscent of the pathos in Hubert Selby’s Last Exit to Brooklyn, and the comedy of John Synge’s The Playboy of the Western World, Dale Herd focuses his astute gaze on lives that are ordinarily invisible, while turning the conventional love story on its head. “...and I like Dale Herd for prose.” Allen Ginsberg, Poetry Flash “No one writes American better than Dale Herd. His writing is like some bastard offspring of a liaison between Charles Bukowski and Joan Didion—unflinching and streetwise as Bukowski, but with Joan Didion ’s unfailing clarity and intelligence.” Lewis MacAdams, Wet Magazine, a Journal of the Avant-Garde “Herd has an acute sense of what people say as against what they mean. This creates the tension in the prose: that something emotionally unbearable is being spilled out into completely bearable talk.” Keith Abbott, on Wild Cherries, San Francisco Review of Books “Known for his brilliant short prose pieces as published in the books, Early Morning Wind, Wild Cherries, Diamonds, and Empty Pockets, Dale Herd is a meticulous recorder of the language we move around in, and he possesses the skill and guts to take it all the way. His underground novel Dreamland Court is simply a masterpiece.” Kevin Opstedal, Blue Press Books

Ladies Night at the Dreamland Book Excerpt:

Tales of female daredevils, warriors, killers, and victims: “Radiant essays inspired by ‘slivers and bits’ of real women's lives…Wise, fresh, captivating.”—Kirkus Reviews (starred review) At the Dreamland, women and girls flicker from the shadows to take their proper place in the spotlight. In this lyrical collection, Sonja Livingston weaves together strands of research and imagination to conjure figures from history, literature, legend, and personal memory. The result is a series of essays that highlight lives as varied, troubled, and spirited as America itself. Livingston breathes life into subjects who led extraordinary lives—as rule-breakers, victims, or those whose differences made them cultural curiosities—bringing together those who slipped through the world largely unseen with those whose images were fleeting or faulty so that they, too, remained relatively obscure. Included are Alice Mitchell, a Memphis society girl who murdered her female lover in 1892; Maria Spelterini, who crossed Niagara Falls on a tightrope in 1876; May Fielding, a “white slave girl” buried in a Victorian cemetery; Valaida Snow, a Harlem Renaissance trumpeter; a child exhibited as Darwin’s Missing Link; the sculptors’ model Audrey Munson; a Crow warrior; victims of a 1970s serial killer; the Fox Sisters; and many more.

Electric Dreamland Book Excerpt:

More than two thousand amusement parks dotted the American landscape in the early twentieth century, thrilling the general public with the latest in entertainment and motion picture technology. Amusement parks were the playgrounds of the working class, combining numerous, mechanically-based spectacles into one unique, modern cultural phenomenon. Lauren Rabinovitz describes the urban modernity engendered by these parks and their media, encouraging ordinary individuals to sense, interpret, and embody a burgeoning national identity. As industrialization, urbanization, and immigration upended society before World War I, amusement parks tempered the shocks of racial, ethnic, and cultural conflict while shrinking the distinctions between gender and class. As she follows the rise of American parks from 1896 to 1918, Rabinovitz seizes on a simultaneous increase in cinema and spectacle audiences and connects both to the success of leisure activities in stabilizing society.--
