Pulp Masters

From Publishers Weekly
Hearkening back to the time when magazine stands were clogged with pulps and slicks, Ed Gorman and Martin H. Greenberg (co-editors of The Big Book of Noir) have assembled stories by John D. MacDonald, James M. Cain, Donald E. Westlake, Lawrence Block, Mickey Spillane and Harry Whittington in Pulp Masters. Cain's books "have never been rivaled as expressions of sociopathy, nor as `tabloid poetry,' " gushes Gorman; MacDonald introduced "the working-class and the lower middle-class into the crime novel" and exhibited "the best storytelling skills of his generation"; and Spillane, well, he merely "wrote six of the ten best-selling books of all time," distinguished by their "atmospherics," sex scenes, "right-wing paranoid fantasy" and first-class writing.

From Publishers Weekly
The third tie-in novel to the Earth: Final Conflict TV series is a straightforward futuristic thriller, set in the days before and during the arrival on Earth of the alien Taelons. Maj. Will Boone, an Army Special Operation agent, is offered a job with the Denver Police Department. Happily, his wife, a computer wizard, is willing to leave her top-secret position to go with him. In Denver, Boone finds himself on the trail of both illegal hackers and murders suspected of being Taelon work. But nothing is as it seems, of course; there are wheels within wheels and conspiracies within conspiracies. And it turns out that the real danger lies not with the Taelons, but with a pseudoresistance organization, apparently trying to provoke an apocalyptic rebellion against the Taelons in order to rule the ruined Earth...

From Publishers Weekly
Grade 5-8-Harry Potter fans will love this creative book with its adventure-filled, intriguing plot. Randal, a young boy in training to become a knight, decides he would rather be a wizard. So with some help from Maestro Madoc, he enrolls in La Schola Sorceriae, where he endures many trials and learns many tricks and spells. Readers will cheer Randal on as he successfully overcomes each new challenge and matures both emotionally and intellectually. Especially interesting to students will be Randal's difficulty in learning "la lengua antigua," or the old language, as that is the official language in the curriculum. Originally published in 1990 by Troll Communications, this translation, with its rich vocabulary, is masterfully rendered. This is the first book in a series, so readers may enjoy the...

Book Description
Forget school math class, Flash math is about fun. It's what you do in your spare time - messing around with little ideas until the design takes over and you end up with something beautiful, bizarre, or just downright brilliant. It's a book of iterative experiments, generative design; a book of inspiration, beautiful enough to leave on the coffee table, but addictive enough to keep by your computer and sneak out while no one's looking so you can go back to that Flash movie that you were tinkering with 'til 3 o'clock this morning. In "New Masters of Flash" the designers told us about themselves and deconstructed their finest effects. This time we've gathered the best in one book and simply asked them to go away and do what they do best: play. We give you the code and explain the essence, then you take your inspiration...
