Book Excerpt :

The instant #1 national bestseller Curtis Joseph, known affectionately to hockey fans around the world as Cujo, was an unlikely NHL superstar. The boy from Keswick, Ontario, didn’t put on a pair of skates until most kids his age were already far along in organized hockey, and he was passed over by every team in the NHL draft. Despite an unorthodox start, he would go on to play eighteen seasons with the St. Louis Blues, Edmonton Oilers, Toronto Maple Leafs, Detroit Red Wings, Phoenix Coyotes and Calgary Flames; be ranked among the all-time greats in several key categories; and win an Olympic gold medal while representing Canada. Joseph is a legend in Toronto, where his fandom rivals that of other beloved Leaf greats, and he’s widely thought of as one of the best goalies of all time. For the first time, in this revealing memoir, Joseph talks about his highly unusual upbringing and what led him to put on his first pair of skates. Written by Kirstie McLellan Day, the world’s top writer of hockey books, this book surprises and entertains, and shares on- and off-the-ice tales no fan has heard before: the untold story behind the legend.

Book Short Summary:

We are, indeed, lucky to inhabit the world with Bette and her team. Her impact is inspiring, and her resolve even more so because, like so many true heroes, again and again, she willingly stepped outside of her life and into the lives of others when it was needed the most; and while she makes it sound easy, make no mistake, to feel, give, and love as fully as Bette has involves extreme sacrifice. Thank you, Bette. Betsy Banks Saul CEO Heal House Call Veterinarian Founder Petfinder.com and 911FosterPets.com “The stories Bette Anderson shares in –Home At Last– True Lost Dog Stories are heart-warming and inspiring. Bette and her team combined remarkable instincts, sleuthing skills, tenacity, and compassion to make many families whole again. While others may have written off these pleas for help saying, ‘It’s just a dog,’ Bette knew these were lost family members and took up each challenge as a personal crusade. Others would have been defeated by extreme weather conditions and downright bad odds but not this team! There are angels among us, and Bette and her team are chief amongst them. Having been in animal welfare work, I’ve seen and lived stories that could harden the softest of souls. Even so, Bette’s book elicited more tears than this old dog should have left to shed. I know –Home At Last–True Lost Dog Stories will inspire others to get more involved in helping their neighbors—two and four-legged alike.” Jim Tedford, CAWA President and CEO Society of Animal Welfare Administrators (SAWA) “I found myself pulled into the reality of each dog’s story in such a way that it seemed I was right there with the people who made a difference. Feeling the angst of each situation, followed by an uplifting resolution was heartwarming. Indeed, there are real guardian angels amongst us, helping lost pets. It is rare to discover individuals as dedicated as those portrayed in this book.” Darlene Larson ASPCA Senior Director, Community Initiatives (Retired)

Book Short Summary:

Now known worldwide for his horror creations in best-selling books and popular film adaptations, Stephen King spent years in obscurity trying to find his voice and his audience. For much of his career he chose to remain in the small-town Maine of his youth, far from glittering publishing and film centers, yet few American writers can now equal his hold on audiences worldwide. This biography traces King's evolution from would-be pulp magazine writer to master of his craft, whose work both epitomizes and transcends the horror genre.

Book Short Summary:

1974: A tiny band of self-styled urban guerrillas, calling itself the Symbionese Liberation Army, abducts a newspaper heiress, who then abruptly announces that she has adopted the guerrilla name "Tania" and chosen to remain with her former captors. Has she been brainwashed? Coerced? Could she be sincere? Why would such a nice girl disavow her loving parents, her adoring fiancé, her comfortable home? Why would she suddenly adopt the SLA's cri de coeur, "Death to the Fascist Insect that Preys Upon the Life of the People"? Soon most of the SLA are dead, killed in a suicidal confrontation with police in Los Angeles, forcing Tania and her two remaining comrades--the pompous and abusive General Teko and his duplicitous lieutenant, Yolanda--into hiding, where they will remain for the next sixteen months. Trance, Christopher Sorrentino's mesmerizing and brilliant second novel, traces this fugitive period, leading the reader on a breathtaking, hilarious, and heartbreaking underground tour across a beleaguered America, in the company of scam artists, visionaries, cultists, and a mismatched gang of middle-class people who typify the guiding conceit of their time, that of self-renovation. Along the way he tells the story of a nation divided against itself--parents and children, men and women, black and white; a story of hidebound tradition and radical change, of truth and propaganda, of cynicism and idealism; a story as transfixing and relevant today as it was then. Insightful, compassionate, scathingly funny, and moving, Trance is a virtuoso performance, placing Christopher Sorrentino in the first rank of American novelists. Trance is a 2005 National Book Award Finalist for Fiction.

Book Short Summary:

For many of us, the only way we meet "dangerous" dogs is through news reports about vicious attacks, and films and TV shows that feature out-of-control versions of man's best friend. But there's more to the Bad Dog's story than sensational headlines and movie beasts. A deeper look at these representations reveals a villain much closer to home. This book takes the reader on a rich journey through depictions of violent dogs in popular media. It explores how press accounts and screen stories transform canines into bloodthirsty hunters, rabies-infested strays, ferocious fighters, rogue law enforcement partners and diabolical pets, all adding up to a frightening picture of our usually beloved companions. But, when media tells the dangerous dog's story, it is often with a deep connection to the person on the other end of the leash.

How would a zombie really decompose in Night of the Living Dead? Are there instances of shape shifting in nature like in The Wolf Man? What is the science behind the night terrors that inspired the creation of Freddy Krueger? Is there scientific data supporting ghost detection like the tools used in Poltergeist? What is the psychological drive that compels cannibals like Hannibal Lecter? How does modern medicine and therapy differ from what would have been offered to Norman Bates in 1960? How are subliminal messages related to propaganda or brainwashing like in The Ring? What would the scientific explanation be for witches possessing people like in Carrie? Was The Blair Witch Project based on any real or imagined creature that came before?” And so much more! Gothic media moguls Meg Hafdahl and Kelly Florence revisit the films from their childhood to discover the science behind the fear. Join Kelly and Meg as they unravel the medical mysteries and scientific marvels that inspired the creation of famous monsters like Nosferatu, Norman Bates, Dracula, Frankenstein, and many more. An approachable and frightfully fun examination of what goes bump in the night, The Science of Monsters will thrill every horror fan.

Book Short Summary:

The “extraordinary” (Booklist) novel of a cursed man’s quest to find the source of his nightmare and to reverse it before he becomes…nothing at all. This #1 New York Times bestseller from Stephen King, writing as Richard Bachman, “pulsates with evil…[and] will have you on the edge of your seat” (Publishers Weekly). “You can’t do anything… It’s gone too far. You understand, Halleck? Too…far. Attorney Billy Halleck seriously enjoys living his life of upper-class excess. He’s got it all­—an expensive home in Connecticut, a loving family…and fifty extra pounds that his doctor repeatedly warns will be the death of him. Then, in a moment of carelessness, Halleck commits vehicular manslaughter when he strikes a jaywalking old woman crossing the street. But Halleck has some powerful local connections, and gets off with a slap on the wrist…much to the fury of the woman’s mysterious and ancient father, who exacts revenge with a single word: “Thinner.” Now a terrified Halleck finds the weight once so difficult to shed dropping effortlessly—and rapidly—by the week. Soon there will be nothing left of Billy Halleck…unless he can somehow locate the source of his living nightmare and reverse what’s happened to him before he utterly wastes away…

Abel Yeager is dead broke, down on his luck, and suffering from a serious case of what-the-hell-does-it-matter. His transition from active Marine to stateside long-haul trucker hit a wicked speed bump when his rig was involved in a wreck that claimed the life of a pregnant woman and laid him up for several months.

On the way south, a crew of truck thieves tracks his every move. But none of them know what Charlie’s ex has smuggled inside the book pallets, who he stole it from, or how far the owner will go to get it back. Charlie’s the first person Yeager has cared about in a long time, but as their bond deepens, so does the danger they’re in. With enemy forces closing in, Yeager battles greed, corruption, and his own fatalism in a bid to hold true to Yeager’s First Law: come home at the end of the day.

Book Short Summary:

Longtime readers have come to understand that Outside’s true gift is in chronicling misadventure. That’s the common thread among the stories found in Out There—those memorable tales that begin with the promise that, even if no one’s life is necessarily hanging in the balance, something may go horribly awry at any moment, and that documenting this misfortune will inevitably yield rich comedic material or a surprisingly poignant moment. Or sometimes both. Out There chronicles fringe athletes, fitness freaks, and others obsessed by ill-advised dreams. It takes us to far-flung places no sane person would want to go. What ties this collection together are the incredible voices of legendary Outside contributors such as David Quammen, Tim Cahill, Susan Orlean, Wells Tower, Christopher Solomon, Patrick Symmes, Taffy Brodesser-Akner, Nick Paumgarten, and many others, who turn their subjects into literary gold and have helped to keep Outside in business for more than forty years.

Book Short Summary:

For the past three decades, Hollywood has faithfully adapted much of Stephen King's fiction into film. Of the many major films that have been made, not one has lost money. Part of this may be explained in terms of King's own popularity in American culture; he has been, after all, a best-selling writer since the late 1970s. But more interesting is what this cinematic fascination reveals about postmodern American culture. In the first overview of Hollywood's major cinematic interpretations of Stephen King, Tony Magistrale examines the various thematic, narrative, and character interconnections that highlight the relationships among his films. Opening with a revealing interview with Stephen King, the book takes us through chapters that explore such popular films as Stand By Me, Misery, The Shining, The Green Mile, and The Shawshank Redemption among others.

This book explores the role of the US Navy Hornet units in the northern Iraqi campaign. These units were the first Navy Reserve unit to be mobilized since the Korean War, and their attacks were launched from carriers off the coast of Turkey. The conflict for these squadrons was very different from the campaign fought in southern Iraq: they worked almost exclusively with clandestine Special Forces teams from the US Army, Marine Corps, Navy SEALs, British and Australian SAS and Kurdish guerrillas. First-hand accounts accompany the indispensable role these units had in the battle to liberate Iraq.

But the mission is compromised from the start with hostile forces dogging Bolan's every move. Soon, the true face of the enemy begins to emerge: beyond the violent radicals and extremist thugs, stand the rich and powerful investors and shadow men who understand that warfare is big business—and will do whatever it takes to keep turning a profit on blood and suffering.

Book Short Summary:

The Maine writer, as many call him, was predestined to become the best horror writer in history. His literary career proves it. In spite of having to endure hundreds of rejections for his first stories and novels, destiny was written: the nail that held the rejection letters finally fell to the floor. Stephen King began writing at the early age of eight, and would publish his beginnings in his first stories. The kids at school read his stories. It was not easy to publish Carrie, the novel that launched his career. Previously, he lived on many different jobs, and the checks he charged for his stories. Death and fear were always by his side before he dug graves in the local cemetery in his teenage years, as his first paid job. His tenacity and constancy made him be recognized as the "King", tribute to his lastname. Here, you will discover his beginnings: since his great grandparents, grandparents, parents, poverty, his father's manuscript box, his first stories, his time in high school he doesn't want to remember, college, his first novels, his job as an english teacher, his alter ego, his problems... and finally his success among the masses. This is a study of his first stage, Stephen King's finest, the one that left an impact on us and the reason why we call him the king of horror. One day his finger randomly fell on a United States map, in Colorado, on Hotel Stanley. He followed the destiny he was meant to follow. Can you guess what story it is?

The Beachcomber (HB) Jack Mahan and Operation Yellow Jacket By: Bill D. Rose The Mahans were a close-knit, yet dysfunctional, family. Uncle Bud Mahan owned and operated the Swordfish Marina at the very tip of Texas on South Padre Island. He was the eldest brother and was obsessed with high-stakes gambling. Eddie Mahan, his brother, was what some people called an adrenaline junkie. The truth is that he would do almost anything for the rush of adrenaline, and he had the scars to prove it. Marge Mahan was Bud’s wife and the stabilizing rock for the whole family. Eddie was my father. My mother was a hippy and deserted us when I was four to protest the Vietnam War; she never returned. When I was nineteen my father gave me the deed to the beach house and left to sail around the world with his buddies. Working at the marina and beachcombing was what I did. It was there where I met Rex Sampson, a wealthy attorney, and Commander Brad McCormick of the US Coast Guard. They soon recruited my entire family and my best friend to join them in a quest to stop the narcotics trade coming in from the Gulf of Mexico and to attempt the takedown of a Columbian drug cartel. The results make for a thrilling con game, pitting the Mahan family against the dangerous drug lords. My name is Jack Mahan, and this is my story

Book Short Summary:

2014 marks the 40th anniversary of the publication of Stephen King?s first novel Carrie in April 1974. Rescued from the rubbish by his wife Tabitha, the novel launched the Maine schoolteacher on a prolific and extraordinarily successful career. His name has become synonymous with horror and suspense through over fifty works, including The Dark Tower, a retelling of Byron?s Childe Harold to the Dark Tower Came. Simpson traces the writer?s life from his difficult childhood ? his father went out to the shops and never came back ? through his initial books under the pseudonym Richard Bachman to the success of Carrie, Salem?s Lot and The Shining in the 1970s, and beyond. He examines how King?s writing was affected by the accident that nearly killed him in 1999 and how his battles with alcohol and addiction to medication have been reflected in his stories. The guide will also take a look at the very many adaptation?s of King?s work in movies, on television and radio, and in comic books.

Book Short Summary:

Torn Between Two Lovers, Feeling Like A Fool Abby Stafford, new Alpha of the Hat Island Pack, has a lot to deal with. The serum the Hat Island Pack has developed will save the lives of shifter girls everywhere — and change the world forever, if the Pack can survive long enough to get it into production. And she's been a wolf for all of a month. She's in love with her Second in command. And they're scrambling to make a real shifter community on Hat Island, hopefully with some income-producing businesses. But someone is gunning for the pack— trying to stop the serum, trying to prevent Abby from being alpha. In the last month there have been seven attempts on her life. Then someone makes a run at the Tanaka Pack Alpha in Seattle — and the only way to save his life is through a mate bond. Abby knows realistically that Hat Island won't last two weeks with Tanaka's support and backing. And she's aware of her own growing feelings for the man. Why wouldn't she want him? He was urbane, polished, intelligent.... But she loves Jake, her Second. Jake says she doesn't have to choose. She can have both. She doubts it's as simple as that, but there's not much time, and very little choice. So another new thing in the shifter world: two alphas mated. She hopes they all survive it. Book 2 in the new urban adventure series, Wolf Harbor.

Book Short Summary:

Since the 1970s, the name Stephen King has been synonymous with horror. His vast number of books has spawned a similar number of feature films and TV shows, and together they offer a rich opportunity to consider how one writer’s work has been adapted over a long period within a single genre and across a variety of media—and what that can tell us about King, about adaptation, and about film and TV horror. Starting from the premise that King has transcended ideas of authorship to become his own literary, cinematic, and televisual brand, Screening Stephen King explores the impact and legacy of over forty years of King film and television adaptations. Simon Brown first examines the reasons for King’s literary success and then, starting with Brian De Palma’s Carrie, explores how King’s themes and style have been adapted for the big and small screens. He looks at mainstream multiplex horror adaptations from Cujo to Cell, low-budget DVD horror films such as The Mangler and Children of the Corn franchises, non-horror films, including Stand by Me and The Shawshank Redemption, and TV works from Salem’s Lot to Under the Dome. Through this discussion, Brown identifies what a Stephen King film or series is or has been, how these works have influenced film and TV horror, and what these influences reveal about the shifting preoccupations and industrial contexts of the post-1960s horror genre in film and TV.
