Memory Road Trip Book Excerpt:

MEMORY ROAD TRIP is a collection of travel stories ranging from the sublime to the surreal as recounted by a former travel agent who saw the world on the cheap. The journey down memory road is a heartfelt excursion into the past that takes armchair explorers on an odyssey of life, love, and loneliness. The circuitous path is full of philosophical nooks and crannies, and many stories get told from the bottom of a well. Many of Krista's stories speak to the angst that simmers inside all of us as we confront the many absurdities that exist in this world. Her passion for nature, art, history, and architecture gush across the page, along with her contagious curiosity in life and her pragmatic acceptance of death. MEMORY ROAD TRIP is not only an adventurous journey to certain parts of the globe, but it is also an introspective and witty journey to the mysterious self. For as large as the world is, it has grown infinitely smaller, yet currently exists relatively out of reach. Travel, for the moment, is safer done mentally these days, so now's the time to go on a MEMORY ROAD TRIP with someone who knows the way.

William Glasser, Phoebe Prosky, David Baum, Joan Barth, Michael Hoyt, airline pilot Doug Doherty and about thirty others share their lives and experiences in Making the Impossible Difficult: Tools for Getting Unstuck . The editors and writers invite you to share their struggles, triumphs, and experiences in this anthology of poems, illustrations, stories, and essays.

Road Trip to Nowhere Book Excerpt:

How a new generation of counterculture talent changed the landscape of Hollywood, the film industry, and celebrity culture. By 1967, the commercial and political impact on Hollywood of the sixties counterculture had become impossible to ignore. The studios were in bad shape, still contending with a generation-long box office slump and struggling to get young people into the habit of going to the movies. Road Trip to Nowhere examines a ten-year span (from 1967 to 1976) rife with uneasy encounters between artists caught up in the counterculture and a corporate establishment still clinging to a studio system on the brink of collapse. Out of this tumultuous period many among the young and talented walked away from celebrity, turning down the best job Hollywood—and America—had on offer: movie star. Road Trip to Nowhere elaborates a primary-sourced history of movie production culture, examining the lives of a number of talented actors who got wrapped up in the politics and lifestyles of the counterculture. Thoroughly put off by celebrity culture, actors like Dennis Hopper, Christopher Jones, Jean Seberg, and others rejected the aspirational backstory and inevitable material trappings of success, much to the chagrin of the studios and directors who backed them. In Road Trip to Nowhere, film historian Jon Lewis details dramatic encounters on movie sets and in corporate boardrooms, on the job and on the streets, and in doing so offers an entertaining and rigorous historical account of an out-of-touch Hollywood establishment and the counterculture workforce they would never come to understand.

Roadtripping Book Excerpt:

Roadtripping – The Epiphany of Mercer Redding “I just stumbled upon something profound ... today’s the best day of my life.” But life has since changed for Mercer Redding, the former self-proclaimed luckiest guy in the world, who’s now back home in New York City. The pain of Mercer’s past is framed within the context of the life and death of his lost love Carmen, who five years ago left a tear-soaked Mercer with a vision of unconditional love until her last breath was spoken with her eyes wide open. Embarking on a cross-country road trip as a method to cope, it isn’t long until Mercer’s adventure culminates in the ultimate epiphany, capped by a miracle that brings a romantic end to the hardest chapter of his life. However, when he senses his old demons advancing soon after, Mercer realizes the miracle has offered his mind a gift out of the realm of science fiction ... One that he must learn to master if he is to continue driving happily ever after. By the time he learns to successfully apply mind over matter, Mercer finds himself to be amidst a new paradigm that seems uncannily familiar – give or take a little deja vu along the way. From the Author: Hi, there! I'm the author of Roadtripping, which is a project that I've been working on for over a decade. Its origins began back in 2010 when I was in between jobs and decided to take on the task of driving from my home in New York all the way to Los Angeles, up to the Pacific Northwest, and back. ​Except that when I arrived back? Wow! An epiphany when I least expected it. ​Travel is as effective as any other at manipulating the mind, and in that little window of time when the momentum of your trip overtakes reality, magic happens. And like a dream, it's easily forgotten. So the same night that I got back to New York from Seattle after being on the road for months, before I even stowed away my suitcase, I began writing. Weaving realistic events with an incremental, believable fantasy allows us to imagine a more theoretical rather than fictional storyline – creating a theme that has the potential to be applied to our everyday lives. Travel can do more than the obvious; past the platitudes, it can serve a higher purpose as the magic of movement has an incredible power of discovery. Come along, and share this journey with me and my cast of characters. I wholeheartedly wish that reading this book fundamentally changes the way that you see the world as much as it has served to change mine. Thank you, my fellow travelers.

Toby Tuttles and the Lost Temple Book Excerpt:

In the first episode, The Enchanted Vanishing Sword, Toby was befriended by an old wizzard who showed him how to pass through a secret portal connecting his world with a world in the fourth dimension called Duppland. Toby, even though just a teenager, impressed the people of Duppland with his courage and wisdom concerning supernatural forces that the people of this land feared. Toby developed many special friends in this land and would go visit them from time to time, being careful not to let anyone see him pass through the secret portal. In this episode, Toby is summoned by the Governess of Duppland, Lady Zelda, to rescue his best friend Rain. She is being held captive in a secret temple and is to be sacrificed in three days to a hedious living stone monster created by the evil warlock, Dr Zodd. It is believed that once you enter the temple the only way out is through a very dark maze where the stone monster lurks. If somehow you get past the monster and find the way out of the dark maze you must get past a wicked giant who has been chosen by Dr Zodd to guard the exit and is not to let anyone leave the maze alive. No one in Duppland knows where the temple is or how to find it. It is believed that an old hermit living somewhere in the badlands of Axmar, knows a way to find the temple, but first you need nto find him. Armed with only a bag of dirt and a staff Toby sets out on his quest to save his friend. The way is long and dangerous. Toby has many bone chilling encounters with vicious mongols, man eating plants and huge flying reptiles. Once inside the temple he must find Rain, destroy the stone monster, find the way out of the dark maze and defeat the giant guard posted there. Next they must pas through a series of burning lava pits and deadly lava snakes, then make their way back to Duppland, crossing the giant wastelands of mercer where they encounter a hedious looking dragon that Toby must slay to save Rain from being eaten. Finally they get a ride back to Duppland on a unicorn where they receive a heros welcome.

Film Is Like a Battleground Book Excerpt:

Film is Like a Battleground: Sam Fuller's War Movies is the first book to focus on the genre that best defined the American director's career: the war film. It draws on previously unexplored archival materials, such as Fuller's Federal Bureau of Investigation files and WWII-era 16mm films, to explore the director's lifelong interest in making challenging, thought-provoking, and often politically dangerous movies about war. After establishing the roots of Fuller's cinematographic schooling in the trenches during World War II, including careful consideration of his 16mm footage of a Nazi camp at the end of that war, Film is Like a Battleground explores Fuller's first forays into hot war representation in Hollywood with the pioneering Korean conflict films The Steel Helmet (1951) and Fixed Bayonets (1951). This pair of films introduced Fuller to his first run-ins with the American political machine when they triggered both FBI and Department of Defense investigations into his political sympathies and affiliations. Fuller's cold war films Pickup on South Street (1953) and, though it veers into hot war territory, Hell and High Water (1954) are Fuller's responses to the political pressures he had now personally experienced and resented. A chapter on Fuller's representation of pre-American-invasion Vietnam in China Gate (1957) alongside his unrealized Vietnam war screenplay, The Rifle (ca. late 1960s), illustrates the degree to which Fuller's representation of war and nation shifted even as he continued to probe war's impossible contradictions. Film is Like a Battleground would be incomplete without a thorough exploration of the films depicting the war Fuller personally experienced and spent a lifetime contemplating, WWII. Verboten! (1959), Merrill's Marauder's (1962), and The Big Red One (1980) demonstrate Fuller's representation of a morally justifiable war. Fuller's 1959 CBS television pilot--Dogface--offers a glimpse at one of Fuller's failed attempts to bring his WWII story into American living rooms. The book concludes with a chapter about a documentary film made late in the director's life that returns Fuller to the actual site of the Nazi's Falkenau camp, at which he discusses his experiences there and that powerful, unforgettable footage he shot in the spring of 1945.
