Description : Produced by Climate Central—a highly regarded independent, nonprofit journalism and research foundation founded in 2008—and reviewed by scientists at major educational and research institutions the world over, Global Weirdness summarizes, in clear and accessible prose, everything we know about the science of climate change; explains what is likely to happen to the climate in the future; and lays out in practical terms what we can and cannot do to avoid further shifts. Sixty easy-to-read entries tackle such questions as: Is climate ever “normal”? Why and how do fossil-fuel burning and other human practices produce greenhouse gases? What natural forces have caused climate change in the past? What risks does climate change pose for human health? What accounts for the diminishment of mountain glaciers and small ice caps around the world since 1850? What are the economic costs and benefits of reducing carbon emissions? Global Weirdness enlarges our understanding of how climate change affects our daily lives, and arms us with the incontrovertible facts we need to make informed decisions about the future of the planet and of humankind. With black-and-white images interspersed throughout.

Description : An exploration of the emergence of a new psychedelic spirituality in the work of Philip K. Dick, Terence McKenna, and Robert Anton Wilson. A study of the spiritual provocations to be found in the work of Philip K. Dick, Terence McKenna, and Robert Anton Wilson, High Weirdness charts the emergence of a new psychedelic spirituality that arose from the American counterculture of the 1970s. These three authors changed the way millions of readers thought, dreamed, and experienced reality—but how did their writings reflect, as well as shape, the seismic cultural shifts taking place in America? In High Weirdness, Erik Davis—America's leading scholar of high strangeness—examines the published and unpublished writings of these vital, iconoclastic thinkers, as well as their own life-changing mystical experiences. Davis explores the complex lattice of the strange that flowed through America's West Coast at a time of radical technological, political, and social upheaval to present a new theory of the weird as a viable mode for a renewed engagement with reality.

Description : From Elmore Leonard's professional hoods to Carl Hiaasen's amateur grotesques, Florida's mystery writers have created a criminal universe that centers on Miami. For the first time, a group of literary critics examines how the center of crime shifted from the City of Angels to the home of Miami Vice and the Magic Kingdom and why the country's southernmost state has developed such a concentration of talented mystery writers. In addition to essays on the origins of the detective novel in Florida and its contemporary masters, the book includes a chapter on Florida film noir from Key Largo to Body Heat and the first comprehensive bibliography of mysteries set in the state.

Description : In dark times, a message of hope. In her bestselling Excuse Me, Your Life Is Waiting, Lynn Grabhorn told how to literally create your own reality. Then--as she tells here--her own life and health inexplicably fell apart. After years of struggle, she learned that the reason why involves nothing less than the age-old struggle between positive and negative forces. More important, she learned how this struggle began, how it is playing out, why times today are so hard for so many, and--WHAT WE CAN DO ABOUT IT. This book is, above all, a message of hope. In Grabhorn's trademark down-to-earth style, she shows how we--each of us--can choose to embrace the positive in such a way that the negative loses all power over us. Forever. This powerful message, if heeded, will change the course of human history for the better.

Description : Few revolutions in science have been more far-reaching—but less understood—than the quantum revolution in physics. Everyday experience cannot prepare us for the sub-atomic world, where quantum effects become all-important. Here, particles can look like waves, and vice versa; electrons seem to lose their identity and instead take on a shifting, unpredictable appearance that depends on how they are being observed; and a single photon may sometimes behave as if it could be in two places at once. In the world of quantum mechanics, uncertainty and ambiguity become not just unavoidable, but essential ingredients of science—a development so disturbing that to Einstein ”it was as if God were playing dice with the universe.” And there is no one better able to explain the quantum revolution as it approaches the century mark than David Lindley. He brings the quantum revolution full circle, showing how the familiar and trustworthy reality of the world around us is actually a consequence of the ineffable uncertainty of the subatomic quantum world—the world we can't see.

Description : What would you do if you found a magical board game that magically transformed you in some VERY surprising ways? Would you dare to keep playing? Could you uncover its mysteries? And how would the rest of your life turn out? In My Very Own Exchanji, YOU get to make all of these choices and more as you return to the world of Alyson Belle's classic book Exchanji, joining four young friends on the magical and hilarious romantic transformation adventure of a lifetime and seeing all the different ways their fateful night might have turned out. You play the book as Connor, one of the men, and when you find a dusty old board game called Exchanji (An Exciting Game of Changes for Consenting Adults) in a closet, things start to get wild as soon as the dice start rolling! Swapped bodies and surprising transformations are only the start of this crazy night... Not only can you pick which romantic encounters happen to Connor throughout the book, but you also get to choose from dozens and dozens of branching paths as the night gets crazier and crazier: Will you go along with the board game's magic or fight it every step of the way? Will you wind up with your girlfriend Maya, the hotheaded Kelsey, or even your best friend Frank? Do you dare to step beyond the portal and enter the magical realms of Exchanjia? With over 400 pages of possibilities and sixteen completely unique endings, the choices you make on this fateful day will affect Connor and every one of his friends for the rest of their lives (or maybe beyond)! Can you make the right choices to have fun, stay alive, and uncover all of the mysteries of the world of Exchanji? There's only one way to find out! Unlike traditional books, this is a branching narrative story that can be read multiple times with different events throughout. At the end of each section there are several hyperlinks indicating choices you can make for Connor, just like a game. You can tap your e-reader/tablet or click the link in your browser (depending on where you’re reading this) to make the selection you want, and you’ll be transported to that section to continue the story. While it’s possible to use your back buttons to go back a step, you’ll probably have the most fun if you treat the decisions as permanent until your next read-through, just like Connor and his friends would have to do!

Description : First published by Random House in 1968, Russell H. Greenan’s It Happened in Boston? is the story of a brilliantly talented, unbalanced artist who strives to meet God face-to-face in order to destroy Him. It is “a magic spell of a book—phantasmagoric, lushly written, full of unforgettable characters and brilliant twists of plot,” writes Jonathan Lethem in his Introduction. With a vivid depiction of the art world and a breathtaking narrative that incorporates forgery, time travel, and murder, Greenan’s hilarious and disturbing debut novel—now an underground cult classic—is ripe for rediscovery.

Description : We don't want to argue with all of our state's motto ('wisdom, justice, moderation'), only with that 'moderation' part. Who are we kidding? This is a state where a guy's home is a tree house with an airplane stuck through it for his bedroom. We've got a twenty-foot-tall rabbit sculpture holding an Olympic torch and a tombstone that's a seven-foot-long marble elephant. And there's a flower garden in Toccoa, where a forty-pound iceberg somehow landed. This is great stuff, and nothing moderate about any of it. A better word than moderation? That would be 'weirdness.' And who better to chronicle the enormous amount of weirdness in Georgia than Jim Miles, a man whose fascination with the bizarre - and with Georgia - is anything but moderate. So with the three P's for sustenance - pecans, peanuts and peaches, of course - and camera and notepad in hand, Jim set out on an extensive tour in search of the odd and the offbeat. He tracked down impossible-to-believe tales, only to discover odd grains of truth that give the stories just enough credibility to make one feel . . .slightly uneasy. So turn the pages and check out Atlanta's own White House; look for the mutant turtle of Berkeley Lake; stroll by the Tomb of the Unknown Shopper; gaze at Georgia's very own Statue of Liberty; Remember Elvis; warts, toenail, and all; hunt down, if you're feeling energetic, the Beast of Pond Road; watch your car roll UP Booger Hill; terrify yourself at abandoned Hawkinsville Hospital; have a chat with the Moon-eyed people; hear the cries for help in Ebenezer's Swamp, and take care not to fall into the Devil's Hopper near Quitman.
