David Jones s The Grail Mass and Other Works Book Excerpt:

Drawing on new archival discoveries, this book presents an authoritative reconstruction of David Jones's The Grail Mass, the unfinished and unpublished project from which came both his masterpiece The Anathemata – a work described by W.H. Auden as 'one of the most important poems of our times' – and The Sleeping Lord and other fragments, his final collection. With detailed commentary on the development and reconstruction of the text, this edition provides a full picture of Jones's literary endeavours over the second half of his life and further establishes his status as a major figure in the first wave of British modernist writers alongside T.S. Eliot and James Joyce. In addition to the text of The Grail Mass, this edition includes a number of unpublished fragments by Jones that emerged from this larger project, complete with textual commentaries.

More Text Than Sex Book Excerpt:

Deeper than an edgy contemporary romance, More Text Than Sex is a slow dance with the very soul of music. Tania Doko, award-winning singer/songwriter. What a treat to dive this insatiable story. Jim Shomos is a literary rock star! Marcelle, Singer/Songwriter Music never judges us but it sometimes helps us question. When Robbie is delegated onto Annie and Cat’s project to run a public songwriting contest, he’s convinced he’ll connect romantically with Annie, a single mother on the verge of relaunching her singing career. Annie is furious, and Cat terrifies Robbie. Yet the professional and relationship mayhem at Merger Music runs deeper than the contest chaos. Annie’s ex-lover, and still legally her manager, reappears after nine years and demands joint custody of their eight-year-old son. Cat’s volunteer work is financially and emotionally draining. How much can her heart bleed for others before someone bleeds for her? Robbie’s going to be the hottest manager of rock stars in Australia, if he can just navigate through a negative minefield: his family. And their CEO’s weakness for starlets creates a scandal that threatens to destroy everything they’re all working for. Can you find your true self, let alone love, in a business built on sex, drugs, and rock ‘n’ lies?

Soonish Book Excerpt:

The instant New York Times bestseller! A Wall Street Journal Best Science Book of the Year! A Popular Science Best Science Book of the Year! From a top scientist and the creator of the hugely popular web comic Saturday Morning Breakfast Cereal, a hilariously illustrated investigation into future technologies -- from how to fling a ship into deep space on the cheap to 3D organ printing What will the world of tomorrow be like? How does progress happen? And why do we not have a lunar colony already? What is the hold-up? In this smart and funny book, celebrated cartoonist Zach Weinersmith and noted researcher Dr. Kelly Weinersmith give us a snapshot of what's coming next -- from robot swarms to nuclear fusion powered-toasters. By weaving their own research, interviews with the scientists who are making these advances happen, and Zach's trademark comics, the Weinersmiths investigate why these technologies are needed, how they would work, and what is standing in their way. New technologies are almost never the work of isolated geniuses with a neat idea. A given future technology may need any number of intermediate technologies to develop first, and many of these critical advances may appear to be irrelevant when they are first discovered. The journey to progress is full of strange detours and blind alleys that tell us so much about the human mind and the march of civilization. To this end, Soonish investigates ten different emerging fields, from programmable matter to augmented reality, from space elevators to robotic construction, to show us the amazing world we will have, you know, soonish. Soonish is the perfect gift for science lovers for the holidays!

The Corps of the Bare Boned Plane Book Excerpt:

When an accident leaves teenage cousins Meline and Jocelyn parentless, they come to live with their unknown and eccentric Uncle Marten on his private island. They soon discover that the island has a history as tragic as their own: it was once an air force training camp, led by a mad commander whose crazed plan to train pilots to fly airplanes without instruments sent eleven pilots to their deaths. Jocelyn, Meline, and Uncle Marten are soon joined on this island of wrecked planes and wrecked men by an elderly Austrian housekeeper, a very mysterious butler, a cat, and a dog. But to Jocelyn and Meline, being in a strange new place around strange new people only underscores the fact that the world they once knew has ended. Told in the alternating voices of four characters dealing with grief in different ways, Polly Horvath's new novel is a rich and complicated story about loss and the possibility— and impossibility—of beginning again. The Corps of the Bare-Boned Plane is a 2008 Bank Street - Best Children's Book of the Year.

When the Bobcats’ fate on the field is sealed, and they would rather give their starting quarterback, Trey Owens, a break, they call in Josh Leeman: “The Backup.” But after Trey is placed on the disabled list for the season, all eyes are on Josh to lead the team. Josh’s sudden superstar status thrusts him into the spotlight, and garners plenty of attention from the ladies—except for one. Carrington Gray is delighted to see her father released from the hospital—but not so much to see Josh at the celebration. Their mothers have long tried to set them up, although it’s had the opposite effect. But under the circumstances, Carri and Josh would rather go on fake dates to appease their mothers than rock the boat. Yet the more time these two work together on their little lie, the more they see the surprising truth . . . Praise for the Santa Fe Bobcats series “Engaging . . .

'Falconer Blood' - Book 1 Infinite Worlds deals with Dan Falconer of Melbourne - 16 years old - awkward, spineless and bullied. A girl claiming to be his half-sister, already an accomplished traveller between worlds, rescues him from some 'classmates' and takes him to 1720 Jamaica to try to rescue Anne Bonny - about to be hanged. John Falconer, their father, 'adventurer among the worlds', has become Calico Jack Rackham - by taking the name of a nonentity who died of the fever and working his way up to pirate leader. However, he has 'gone bad' as a bloodthirsty murderer. The reason for the powers the Falconer adolescents possess - telekinesis or the ability to travel between parallel worlds - is elusive. It is thought to be genetic - in the blood. Dan has secretly fallen in love with his half-sister, Bess. He also has trouble adjusting to living on the dangerous edge of the 18th Century - where life is cheap - and usually short.

A Ship s Tale Book Excerpt:

Set in post-war England, this is the story of the square-rigger Bonnie Clyde. Before this great lady meets her fate, a group of rogue sailors, unable to persuade the Admiralty to help save the vessel, pirates the ship away while she's under tow to be scuttled. Through their creative use of materials and methods, they sail her through the English Channel and the Irish Sea, hoping to deliver the ship to where she was built in Dumbarton, Scotland on the river Clyde. A former Royal Navy officer Lt. Flynn tells the story. He is lured into conspiring with a Scottish sea captain (Bowman), his British first mate (Harris) who is the inside connection to parts from the scrap yards, an Irish navigator (Edward), and a Russian master rigger (Boris). Together, the crew outsmarts the British Admiralty and Scotland Yard in their attempts to stop the ship. During their journey, the crew fights the weather and avoids modern day detection. A sympathetic public opinion, aided by an AP reporter and a host of unlikely co-conspirators become their allies. Praise from reviewers: Walter Cronkite — A Ship's Tale by N. Jay Young is “an extraordinary tale from World War II of an extraordinary sailing vessel written by a courageous and extraordinary author.” James P. Delgado, Host of National Geographic Television’s The Sea Hunters and Executive Director, Vancouver Maritime Museum — “A Ship’s Tale by N. Jay Young is compelling, true to life, and hitting straight in the heart. I can empathize with those men who love that ship—for I too have loved and lost a ship. I encourage anyone with a love of the sea as well as those in a relationship with one of us ‘ship loving’ types to read this book.” Clive Cussler — “This is a good book and would make a good film.”
