With a smart, sympathetic protagonist, lots of colorful details, and even tips on creating trompe l’oeil paintings, A Palette for Murder is a work of art.” – Ellen Byron, Agatha-Nominated and USA Today Bestselling Author of the Cajun Country Mysteries “In A Palette for Murder, Johnson has crafted a clever mystery with a colorful protagonist. Set along the vibrant Southern California coast, this story resonates with a rich understanding of the artistic as well as the homeless communities.

$0.99


A handful of men, frugal, hardy, and valiant, successfully defending their barren mountains and dearly-won independence against the reiterated assaults of a mighty neighbour, offer, apart from political considerations, a deeply interesting spectacle. When, upon a map of the world’s eastern hemisphere, we behold, not far from its centre, on the confines of barbarism and civilisation, a spot, black with mountains, and marked “Circassia;” when we contrast this petty nook with the vast territory stretching from the Black Sea to the Northern Ocean, from the Baltic to Behring’s Straits, we admire and wonder at the inflexible resolution and determined gallantry that have so long borne up against the aggressive ambition, iron will, and immense resources of a czar. Sixty millions against six hundred thousand-a hundred to one, a whole squadron against a single cavalier, a colossus opposed to a pigmy-these are the odds at issue. It seems impossible that such a contest can long endure. Yet it has lasted twenty years, and still the dwarf resists subjugation, and contrives, at intervals, to inflict severe punishment upon his gigantic adversary. There is something strangely exciting in the contemplation of so brave a struggle. Its interest is far superior to that of any of the “little wars” in which Europe, since 1815, has evaporated her superabundant pugnacity. African raids and Spanish skirmishes are pale affairs contrasted with the dashing onslaughts of the intrepid Circassians. And, in other respects than its heroism, this contest merits attention. As an important section of the huge mountain-dyke, opposed by nature to the south-eastern extension of the Russian empire, Circassia is not to be overlooked. On the rugged peaks and in the deep valleys of the Caucasus, her fearless warriors stand, the vedettes of southern Asia, a living barrier to the forward flight of the double eagle. Matters of pressing interest, nearer home, have diverted public attention from the warlike Circas

To Charles Lamb shall be allotted-general assent has already assigned it to him, and we have no wish to dispute his claim-a quiet, quaint niche, apart to himself, in some odd nook or corner in the great temple of English literature. It shall be carved from the solid oak, and decorated with Gothic tracery; but where Madonnas and angels ordinarily appear, there shall be all manner of laughing cherubs-one amongst them disguised as a chimney-sweep-with abundance of sly and humorous devices. Some such niches or stalls may occasionally be seen in old cathedrals, sharing the eternity of the structure, and drawing the peculiar regard of the curious and loitering visitor. You are startled to find a merry device, and a wit by no means too reverential, side by side with the ideal forms of Catholic piety. You approach to examine the solemn-looking carving, and find, perhaps, a fox clothed in priestly raiment-teaching, in his own way, divers lessons of morality to the bears and geese. Such venerable and Gothic drollery suspends for a moment, but hardly mars, the serious and sedate feelings which the rest of the structure, and the other sculptured figures of the place, are designed to excite. Some such peculiar place amongst our literary worthies seems, as we have said, to be assigned by general consent to Charles Lamb, nor are we about to gainsay his right to this position. He has all the genius that could comport with oddity, and all the oddity that could amalgamate with genius. With a range of thought most singularly contracted, considering the times in which he lived, and the men by whom he was surrounded, he has contrived, by a charming subtlety of observation, and a most felicitous humour, to make us in love even with that contractedness itself, which in another would be despised, as evidencing a sluggishness and obtuseness of mind. Perhaps there are few writers who could be named, of these later days, on whose peculiar merits there is so little difference of opinion. As a

Catch a Fallen Angel


Catch a Fallen Angel


$5.99


New York private eye Mark Renzler was worried about getting enough money for some more beer. And to pay some bills. So when the call came from Chicago, asking if he would be willing to fly out on Arnold Long’s personal jet and take on a job for the publisher of Paradise magazine, Renzler said sure. Then he called Nate Moore, his sometime partner, and invited him along for the ride. It doesn’t take long for Mark and Nate to discover that there’s trouble in Paradise. Angel-of-the-Month Sherri West is missing. after receiving some anonymous and threatening notes. She isn’t the first centerfold to get them, but there’s a difference; she’s the first one to get them before her pictures were published. While the streets of 1969 Chicago teem with anti-war demonstrators, Mark and Nate run into people with different types of agitation in mind. First, there’s Sherri’s boyfriend Pablo, part-time radical and full-time creep. There’s Cindi, Sherri’s sister, who seems less than concerned about her missing sibling. There’s Reverend Whitey, who seems to be leading the campaign against the magazine. And then there are the Wyders, a father and daughter preparing to publish the first issue of their magazine, Nook. Their proposed premiere centerfold – Sherri West! Praise for Catch a Fallen Angel: “A very fast-paced, interesting mystery. Engleman does an excellent job here. the wisecracks are funny and the allusions, clever. Engleman shows that, like Chandler, he doesn’t take him too seriously.” – Publishers Weekly “. breezy and irreverent.” – Chicago Sun-Times

Commodify Your Dissent: Salvos from The Baffler


Commodify Your Dissent: Salvos from The Baffler


$19.95


From the pages of The Baffler, the most vital and perceptive new magazine of the nineties, sharp, satirical broadsides against the Culture Trust. In the “old” Gilded Age, the barons of business accumulated vast wealth and influence from their railroads, steel mills, and banks. But today it is culture that stands at the heart of the American enterprise, mass entertainment the economic dynamo that brings the public into the consuming fold and consolidates the power of business over the American mind. For a decade The Baffler has been the invigorating voice of dissent against these developments, in the grand tradition of the muckrakers and The American Mercury. This collection gathers the best of its writing to explore such peculiar developments as the birth of the rebel hero as consumer in the pages of Wired and Details; the ever-accelerating race to market youth culture; the rise of new business gurus like Tom Peters and the fad for Hobbesian corporate “reengineering”; and the encroachment of advertising and commercial enterprise into every last nook and cranny of American life. With its liberating attitude and cant-free intelligence, this book is a powerful polemic against the designs of the culture business on us all.

Creating Fixed-Layout eBooks


$8.99


Often referred to as “children’s ebooks,” “picture ebooks,” “photo books,” and similar monikers, fixed-layout ebooks are visually-rich layouts that offer much more than standard EPUB and KF8 format ebooks for iPad, iPhone, Kindle, Kindle Fire, Nook, Sony Reader, Kobo, and more. Fixed-layout ebooks behave very much like PDFs or even digital magazines, displaying the design, typography, and page geometry exactly as designed on all devices. This specialty type of ebook tends to be very reliant on imagery, either or both as inline graphics or page background images, and sometimes even as spread-spanning images. They support advanced typographic control and pixel-precise layout, and they can contain read-a-long, on-demand, or ambient audio. Limited interactivity may also be achieved through JavaScript integration. Objects can be placed anywhere on the page, aligned relative to one another, with absolute precision, and type control goes far beyond standard, flowable EPUB in the forms of support for any font (with embedding), accurate line wrapping, hyphenation, leading control, tracking (letter spacing), and even multiple columns. Fixed-layout EPUBs may have real sidebars, note or tip boxes, and live text image captions. And, like flowable EPUBs, all the text-even in such special features-is searchable, live text. All of these features make fixed-layout ebooks ideal for such projects as children’s books, cookbooks, travel journals, photography and design books, game guides, and any other project where page presentation is important to reader experience and sales. ePublishing with InDesign: Creating Fixed-Layout eBooks will teach you: Understanding Fixed-Layout eBooks Planning a Fixed-Layout eBook Creating Fixed-Layout in InDesign Adapting the HTML Editing the CSS Adding Advanced Features Creating Read Aloud Narration Creating Fixed-Layout for Kindle Converting Fixed-Layout for Nook Creating Fixed-Layout for Sony Reader Creating Fixed-Layout for

Falling in Love


Falling in Love


$3.39


Some people complain that science is dry. That is, of course, a matter of taste. For my own part, I like my science and my champagne as dry as I can get them. But the public thinks otherwise. So I have ventured to sweeten accompanying samples as far as possible to suit the demand, and trust they will meet with the approbation of consumers. Of the specimens here selected for exhibition, my title piece originally appeared in the Fortnightly Review: ‘Honey Dew’ and ‘The First Potter’ were contributions to Longman’s Magazine: and all the rest found friendly shelter between the familiar yellow covers of the good old Cornhill. My thanks are due to the proprietors and editors of those various periodicals for kind permission to reproduce them here. G.ALLEN THE NOOK, DORKING: September, 1889. Falling In Love “.An ancient and famous human institution is in pressing danger. Sir George Campbell has set his face against the time-honoured practice of Falling in Love. Parents innumerable, it is true, have set their faces against it already from immemorial antiquity; but then they only attacked the particular instance, without venturing to impugn the institution itself on general principles. An old Indian administrator, however, goes to work in all things on a different pattern. He would always like to regulate human life generally as a department of the India Office; and so Sir George Campbell would fain have husbands and wives selected for one another (perhaps on Dr. Johnson’s principle, by the Lord Chancellor) with a view to the future development of the race, in the process which he not very felicitously or elegantly describes as ‘man-breeding.’ ‘Probably,’ he says, as reported in Nature, ‘we have enough physiological knowledge to effect a vast improvement in the pairing of individuals of the same or allied races if we could only apply that knowledge to make fitting marriages, instead of giving way to foolish ideas about love and the tastes of young people, whom we can hardly

Fern Fever: The Story of Pteridomania


Fern Fever: The Story of Pteridomania


$65


A fascinating literary foray” – “Canadian Gardening” “This rarefied botanical pursuit is usually considered a British eccentricity, but Ms. Whittingham has turned up much proof that it reached American shores.” – “The New York Times” “One of those remarkable tales you never knew you needed to read and that, once begun, you never want to put down” – “Dallas Morning News” Pteridomania or Fern Fever took a frantic hold in Britain from the 1840s. It was a craze fostered by an array of books and magazines and special equipment designed for fern hunting trips and the cultivation of the finds in delicate fern cases. Sarah Whittingham has searched every nook and cranny for her subject, finding ferns in splendid glazed ferneries, Pulhamite grottoes and decoratively across every imaginable surface in the Victorian home. You would sit on your Coalbrookdale ‘Fern and blackberry’ garden bench and sup from your Ridgway ‘Maiden Hair Fern’ dinner service. The industrious Victorians lavished much love and care (and knowledge) on their beautiful fern albums. This ravishing book shines a sympathetic light on an enthusiasm that looks as if it might well take hold again.

Finding Utopia: Another Journey Into Lost Ohio


Finding Utopia: Another Journey Into Lost Ohio


$11.99


A fascinating journey through Ohio’s forgotten pastIn Finding Utopia, Randy McNutt sets off again to explore Ohio’s for-gotten nooks and byways. He begins where his last journey ended- on roads less traveled-finding more ghost towns, battlefields-turned-cornfields, and old memories that beckon him like spectral hitchhikers. On the way, he meets another cast of quirky and deter-mined people who struggle to keep their towns on the map. Aided by his aging Jeep and a longing to escape, McNutt dis-covers a pioneer inn that harbors the ghost of a headless coach-man (and a surprising personal connection); a Victorian town that looks like an empty movie set; the gruesome battlefield on which the U.S. Army suffered its worst defeat ever by Native Americans; and a gunpowder manufacturing town that was blown to atoms on a sizzling summer day in 1890. Often encountering a past that is livelier than the present, he walks through another town where magnetic water once “cured” many ailments, stays the night in a stagecoach inn known for a ghostly cat and its owner who still roam the halls, finds a town built on cranberry bogs, and uncov-ers what’s left of a World War I training camp sitting atop ancient Indian mounds. In tiny Utopia, for which this book is named, he descends into an underground stone chamber to hear tales of the spirits that haunt it. McNutt’s first two books-seamlessly combining the genres of travel narrative, history, and memoir-won praise for effectively merging past and present, and giving readers a strong sense of place. As with those, Finding Utopia will appeal to anyone inter-ested in heritage tourism, folklore, Americana, Ohio history and lore, back roads, ghosts of many kinds, and small-town life. A native of Hamilton, Ohio, Randy McNutt has written twenty books as well as hundreds of features for newspapers and magazines in Ohio and across the nation. His book Lost Ohio: More Travels into Haunted Landscapes, Ghost Towns, and Forgotten Lives won the Ohio

Paradox Resolution


$4.99


What if you could get your hands on one of these? The heartbreaking story of reckless young love and a tricked out time machine that, in the wrong hands, could destroy the universe! ” K.A. Bedford does a really good job exploring the societal impact of a huge technology.” – Paul Lappen In a world where time machines are cheap and portable, ex-cop Aloysius ‘Spider’ Webb is eking out a living as a time machine repairman. “Spider is described as “a good man in a bad situation,” which I take to mean a schlemiel who labors to be a mensch.” -Chris R. Paige, Book Nook “One of science fiction’s unexpected pleasures in recent years.” -Kirkus Reviews Winner of the Australian Tin Duck Award. “Well-written and fast-paced. Paradox Resolution should appeal to those who enjoy a detective story and the scientific types who like to try and unravel the quantum workings of time travel.” -Ronald Hore, CM magazine ABOUT THE BOOK: Aloysius “Spider” Webb is a good man in a bad situation. Aloysius “Spider” Webb fixes time machines for a living. He hates his job; he hates his life, and hates time travel even more. He’s a hard working Australian bloke – a good man in a bad situation who is willing to do almost anything to regain his self-respect and the affection of his nearly ex-wife, Molly; a mad sculptress on her way to international fame and fortune. Spider’s life and his world are changing. After quitting the Western Australian Police Service, Spider studied to become a time machine repair mechanic, eking out a sparse living fixing broken down machines. But the repair business isn’t what it used to be. Once, time machines were as big as cars; but now they’re smaller and compact, portable, and cost too much to get fixed so it’s easier for people to simply buy a new one. Times are tough and there is no end in sight. Meanwhile, Spider’s new boss at the Time Machines Repaired While-U-Wait franchise needs help: his secretly built, totally illegal, radically overclocked, hotrod time ma
