Cemetery Boys Book Excerpt:

A trans boy determined to prove his gender to his traditional Latinx family summons a ghost who refuses to leave in Aiden Thomas's New York Times-bestselling paranormal YA debut Cemetery Boys, described by Entertainment Weekly as "groundbreaking." Yadriel has summoned a ghost, and now he can't get rid of him. When his traditional Latinx family has problems accepting his true gender, Yadriel becomes determined to prove himself a real brujo. With the help of his cousin and best friend Maritza, he performs the ritual himself, and then sets out to find the ghost of his murdered cousin and set it free. However, the ghost he summons is actually Julian Diaz, the school's resident bad boy, and Julian is not about to go quietly into death. He's determined to find out what happened and tie off some loose ends before he leaves. Left with no choice, Yadriel agrees to help Julian, so that they can both get what they want. But the longer Yadriel spends with Julian, the less he wants to let him leave. Praise for Cemetery Boys: Longlisted for the National Book Award "The novel perfectly balances the vibrant, energetic Latinx culture while delving into heavy topics like LGBTQ+ acceptance, deportation, colonization, and racism within authoritative establishments." —TeenVogue.com "This stunning debut novel from Thomas is detailed, heart-rending, and immensely romantic. I was bawling by the end of it, but not from sadness: I just felt so incredibly happy that this queer Latinx adventure will get to be read by other kids. Cemetery Boys is necessary: for trans kids, for queer kids, for those in the Latinx community who need to see themselves on the page. Don’t miss this book." —Mark Oshiro, author of Anger is a Gift

Women were kissing strangers, sailors and soldiers in Times Square. World War II was finally over. The boys would be coming home. Parents were estatic. With a little luck, their boys would make it home in one piece. The word of the day was relief. People left work early. Tears of joy were common. Hitler and his minions would not be taking up residence in America after all. The world held new promise. Then suddenly, without warning, bombs exploded in southern California. People were injured and some killed. Who was responcible? Was it fifth columnists? Was it a mad bomber? Was the war really over? Chester Brantley was a private eye living in Orange, California. He was injured by one of the bombs. The shoe shine man in his office building was killed by the same blast. Brantley is pulled into the mystery. He follows a trail of suspicious deaths, murders, kidnappings, and chase scenes to solve The Three Coffin Caper.

Short Stories About Life in Berkeley County South Carolina Book Excerpt:

This book contains over one hundred short stories about life in Berkeley County, SC. You will also find some interesting pictures taken here in this county. These are true stories but I used fictitious names for the main characters as I want to get the message out without hurting anyone. This book will appeal to the ole folks as well as the young and will be a priceless possession in the future. There will never be another book like this as most all of the characters have left Planet Earth and I am now eighty two years old. The subjects in each story are different. I have covered the days before and during the great depression, World War II, moonshine whiskey, outrunning revenue agents, and living through generations of crooked politicians. I was born in Shulerville, SC on August 4, 1924 and was drafted into the army on August 4th, 1943. I served twenty-eight months in the military, eighteen of these in Italy and eight of these were on the front lines with the 91st Infantry Division. We were part of the Fifth Army under the command of General Mark Clark. After my discharge from the army, I went to barber college in Greenville, SC. I followed this trade until 1947 and then began working for Westvaco. I retired from there in 1987and since then I have enjoyed my small farm and working several part time jobs. I have written one book (The Ole Days in Berkeley County, SC) which was published by 1st books on 5/13/02. I trust that you will enjoy reading these stories about life in the ole days of Berkeley County.

Ravencry Book Excerpt:

'Dark, twisty and excellent . . . Grimdark with heart' Mark Lawrence For Ryhalt Galharrow, working for Crowfoot as a Blackwing captain is about as bad as it gets - especially when his orders are garbled, or incoherent, or impossible to carry out. The Deep Kings are hurling fire from the sky, a ghost in the light known only as the Bright Lady had begun to manifest in visions across the city, and the cult that worship her grasp for power while the city burns around them. Galharrow may not be able to do much about the cult - or about strange orders from the Nameless - but when Crowfoot's arcane vault is breached and an object of terrible power is stolen, he's propelled into a race against time to recover it. Only to do that, he needs answers, and finding them means travelling into nightmare: to the very heart of the Misery. RAVENCRY is the second book in the Raven's Mark series, continuing the story that began with the award winning epic fantasy BLACKWING.

Turkey Rediscovered Book Excerpt:

This book, available for the first time in English, is an exhilarating journey through Turkey’s history and a perceptive look at the interactions between secularism, religion, and multiethnic identity. Without a guide and driven only by his own curiosity, Klaus Reichert travels to Anatolia, Istanbul, and the Aegean coast. He explores the strip of land where Adam and Eve are said to have settled after their expulsion from the Garden of Eden, and where Moses struck water from stone. While following in the footsteps of the brilliant architect Mimar Sinan and investigating the mysteries of his mosques, Reichert speaks to an old stonemason and a young teacher, visits one of the last remaining colonies of a rare breed of ibis, and walks the wide expanses surrounding the archaeological sites of western Turkey. Finally, he draws parallels between Kilim weaving, minimal music, and modernity as a whole. Under Reichert’s gaze, what is seen and learned becomes a colorful and provocative collection of images and patterns. A one-of-a-kind travelogue that touches on Turkey’s traditions, natural history, and political divisions, Turkey Rediscovered shows us a new side to a land we thought we already knew.
