Book Summary:

Under the Big Black Sun explores the nascent Los Angeles punk rock movement and its evolution to hardcore punk as it's never been told before. John Doe of the legendary band X and co-author Tom DeSavia have woven together an enthralling story of the legendary West Coast scene from 1977-1982 by enlisting the voices of people who were there. The book shares chapter-length tales from the authors along with personal essays from famous (and infamous) players in the scene. Through interstitial commentary, John Doe "narrates" this journey through the land of film noir sunshine, Hollywood back alleys, and suburban sprawl. Illustrated with 50 rare photos, this is the story of the art that was born under the big black sun.

Book Summary:

Sequel to Grammy-nominated bestseller Under the Big Black Sun, continuing the up-close and personal account of the L.A. punk scene, with 50 rare photos Picking up where Under the Big Black Sun left off, More Fun in the New World explores the years 1982 to 1987, covering the dizzying pinnacle of L.A.'s punk rock movement as its stars took to the national -- and often international -- stage. Detailing the eventual splintering of punk into various sub-genres, the second volume of John Doe and Tom DeSavia's west coast punk history portrays the rich cultural diversity of the movement and its characters, the legacy of the scene, how it affected other art forms, and ultimately influenced mainstream pop culture. The book also pays tribute to many of the fallen soldiers of punk rock, the pioneers who left the world much too early but whose influence hasn't faded. As with Under the Big Black Sun, the book features stories of triumph, failure, stardom, addiction, recovery, and loss as told by the people who were influential in the scene, with a cohesive narrative from authors Doe and DeSavia. Along with many returning voices, More Fun in the New World weaves in the perspectives of musicians Henry Rollins, Fishbone, Billy Zoom, Mike Ness, Jane Weidlin, Keith Morris, Dave Alvin, Louis Pérez, Charlotte Caffey, Peter Case, Chip Kinman, Maria McKee, and Jack Grisham, among others. And renowned artist/illustrator Shepard Fairey, filmmaker Allison Anders, actor Tim Robbins, and pro-skater Tony Hawk each contribute chapters on punk's indelible influence on the artistic spirit. In addition to stories of success, the book also offers a cautionary tale of an art movement that directly inspired commercially diverse acts such as Green Day, Rancid, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Wilco, and Neko Case. Readers will find themselves rooting for the purists of punk juxtaposed with the MTV-dominating rock superstars of the time who flaunted a "born to do this, it couldn't be easier" attitude that continued to fuel the flames of new music. More Fun in the New World follows the progression of the first decade of L.A. punk, its conclusion, and its cultural rebirth.

Book Summary:

From the New York Times bestselling author of Star Wars: Resistance Reborn comes the first book in the Between Earth and Sky trilogy, inspired by the civilizations of the Pre-Columbian Americas and woven into a tale of celestial prophecies, political intrigue, and forbidden magic. A god will return When the earth and sky converge Under the black sun In the holy city of Tova, the winter solstice is usually a time for celebration and renewal, but this year it coincides with a solar eclipse, a rare celestial event proscribed by the Sun Priest as an unbalancing of the world. Meanwhile, a ship launches from a distant city bound for Tova and set to arrive on the solstice. The captain of the ship, Xiala, is a disgraced Teek whose song can calm the waters around her as easily as it can warp a man’s mind. Her ship carries one passenger. Described as harmless, the passenger, Serapio, is a young man, blind, scarred, and cloaked in destiny. As Xiala well knows, when a man is described as harmless, he usually ends up being a villain. Crafted with unforgettable characters, Rebecca Roanhorse has created an epic adventure exploring the decadence of power amidst the weight of history and the struggle of individuals swimming against the confines of society and their broken pasts in the most original series debut of the decade.

Book Summary:

A thrilling debut set at the height--and in the heart--of Soviet power, with intricately plotted machinations, secrets and surveillance, corrupt politicos and puppet masters in the Politburo, and one devastating weapon. It is the dawn of the 1960s. In order to investigate the gruesome death of a brilliant young physicist, KGB officer Major Alexander Vasin must leave Moscow for Arzamas-16, a top secret research city that does not appear on any map. There he comes up against the brightest, most cutthroat brain trust in Russia who, on the orders of Nikita Khrushchev himself, are building a nuclear weapon with 3,800 times the destructive potential of the Hiroshima bomb. RDS-220 is a project of such vital national importance that, unlike everyone else in the Soviet Union, the scientists of Arzamas-16 are free to think and act, live and love as they wish, so long as they complete the project and prove to their capitalist enemies that the USSR now commands the heights of nuclear supremacy.

Book Summary:

Taking us back to late ’70s and early ’80s Hollywood—pre-crack, pre-AIDS, pre-Reagan—We Got the Neutron Bomb re-creates word for word the rage, intensity, and anarchic glory of the Los Angeles punk scene, straight from the mouths of the scenesters, zinesters, groupies, filmmakers, and musicians who were there. “California was wide-open sex—no condoms, no birth control, no morality, no guilt.” —Kim Fowley “The Runaways were rebels, all of us were. And a lot of people looked up to us. It helped a lot of kids who had very mediocre, uneventful, unhappy lives. It gave them something to hold on to.” —Cherie Currie “The objective was to create something for our own personal satisfaction, because everything in our youthful and limited opinion sucked, and we knew better.” —John Doe “The Masque was like Heaven and Hell all rolled into one. It was a bomb shelter, a basement. It was so amazing, such a dive ... but it was our dive.” —Hellin Killer “At least fifty punks were living at the Canterbury. You’d walk into the courtyard and there’d be a dozen different punk songs all playing at the same time. It was an incredible environment.” —Belinda Carlisle Assembled from exhaustive interviews, We Got the Neutron Bomb tells the authentically gritty stories of bands like the Runaways, the Germs, X, the Screamers, Black Flag, and the Circle Jerks—their rise, their fall, and their undeniable influence on the rock ’n’ roll of today.

Book Summary:

Now in a Harper Perennial Modern Classics edition, the timeless novel that chronicles a reckless romance in the wilderness, from Edward Abbey, one of America’s foremost defenders of the natural environment. Black Sun is a bittersweet love story involving an iconoclastic forest ranger and a freckle-faced “American princess” half his age. Like Lady Chatterley’s lover, he initiates her into the rites of sex and the stark, secret harmonies of his wilderness kingdom. She, in turn, awakens in him the pleasure of love. Then she mysteriously disappears, plunging him into desolation. Black Sun is a singular novel in Abbey’s repertoire, a romantic story of a solitary man’s passion for the outdoors and for a woman who is his wilderness muse. “Like most honest novels, Black Sun is partly autobiographical, mostly invention, and entirely true. The voice that speaks in this book is the passionate voice of the forest,” Abbey writes, “the madness of desire, and the joy of love, and the anguish of final loss.”

He drives her crazy - and not in a good way. But she can't get him out of her head. Katella Hanson hasn't made the best choices. After her grandfather was murdered, her boyfriend and first line center of the Newport Beach Seagulls, breaks up with her because he can't handle it anymore - whatever that means - and demands to be traded to a different team. When he comes back a year later in order to practice with the team, Katella goes into a downward spiral, hooking up with another team mate and then breaking things off once he found someone he was more serious with. She's a hot mess and she needs to get her act together. It doesn't help that one of the team's new acquisitions, James Negan, is the biggest jerk she's ever met. Sure, he's sort of good looking in a rough way and he's an excellent hockey player. But he's a jackass and Katella has sworn off hockey players. Until he kisses her one afternoon in the team's gym. Now, he's all she can think about, even with her ex coming back to the team and trying to make up for leaving her. The AllStar weekend is coming up, and for the Gulls, that means doing their annual AllStar Auction, where the general population pay an obscene amount of money to come bid on a date with each player, raise money for charity, and congratulate the team's AllStar selection. Katella doesn't expect to bid on Negan but she does. And she wins. Negan owes her a date and he's all too happy to oblige. Now, Katella must sort out her residual feelings for her ex, this new attraction to a man she thought she hated, and decide what she really wants at the end of the day. Warning: This novel deals with Alpha male hockey players who aren't afraid to swear, get rough, and fight for the women they love. Don't read if you like your heroes polite, refined, and restrained.

Book Summary:

Chess players have long dreamed of a winning strategy for black. Previous strategies have produced mostly losses for black. It is unrealistic for black to expect to begin winning more using the white strategy of 'control the center and win the endgame.' It is time for a more effective approach. -------Part One introduces the reader to Alexander the Great, Hannibal of Carthage, and King Leonidas of Sparta. Each of these leaders defeated an army which controlled the center and possessed superior numbers. The same strategy has been successfully applied to the black side of the chess board by a handful of Grandmasters. ---------The Black Strategy illuminates the way forward. This strategy has been referred to as the Hippopotamus Defense. The reason is that, like the Hippo, the Black position develops into something which appears slow and lethargic. However, once it engages with White forces, it is like a combination of behemoth and leviathan. White inevitably will send some pieces to the Black side of the board where they will get tangled up and eliminated. Eventually, the Black juggernaut will grind the White player into submission. ------------The Hippo is quite fierce once it engages with opponents. It is not easily handled and it causes a lot of confusion for White players who have extremely limited experience with it.---------Part Two draws inspiration from the works of Sun Tzu (The Art of War) and Miyamoto Musashi (The Book of Five Rings). Sun Tzu (Chinese general, military strategist, and philosopher) wrote the original Art of War 2500 years ago. It is the definitive work on military strategy and tactics. Musashi was undefeated in over 60 duels. The Book of Five Rings is the ultimate guide to one-on-one dueling with an eye towards total victory. -----------The knowledge from these two books is synthesized and applied to the game of chess. The reader is introduced to a new way of analyzing the situations which arise on the chess board, and responding forcefully with accurate moves.

Book Summary:

Another body in a string of ritualistic murders. A serial killer who's getting cocky. Detective Derek Childress thinks this day just can't get any worse. And then he meets his new partner. Investigator Kayle Perrine is a Variant: one of several races of once-thought mythical creatures who now live among and lord-over humankind. Led by a group of vampires called the Clan Gentry, the Variants protect their own, just as they did when Derek's previous partner was killed by one, nearly a year ago. Now that Perrine's on the case, Derek expects a cover-up. Kayle Perrine has worked his whole life to prove himself, but being paired up with a boorish mundane like Derek Childress is feeling more like punishment than reward. Derek is so blinded by his prejudice against Variants, that he refuses to see the evidence Kayle finds blatantly obvious. The sooner Kayle can close this case, the sooner he can go back home and forget about the infuriating human detective. A brutal attack forges a fragile truce between the two men, driving them together. Derek and Kayle must learn to trust and depend on each other while tempers flare and passions of every kind run hot between them. Yet as they begin to grow closer, one fact continues to keep them apart: they are from different worlds. With time running out to solve this case, Derek and Kayle understand that love may not be enough to overcome prejudice, politics, and murder.

Crime solving is a family affair-and a Family affair-in the Big Uneasy. Nell Whitby is starting over in New Orleans, getting a publisher for her children's book, sketching tourists in the French Quarter, and leaving the tragic death of her parents behind. When a handsome detective asks her for a date, her fresh start seems perfect...until a dangerous family secret bubbles up from the past and puts her life in jeopardy. The oldest of thirteen children, detective Alex Baker has two goals in life: solve murders and avoid anyone under the age of ten.

As bullets start to fly, Nell can't resist her sexy bodyguard or ignore her past, and Alex must protect the irresistible kid-magnet who has them both in the crosshairs."
