Magnificent Mavericks tells the story of the creative military/civilian team who worked at the Naval Ordnance Test Station and its Pasadena Annex from 1948 to 1958. Projects developed there include Sidewinder, the world's first successful heat-homing guided missile; Polaris, for which NOTS provided conceptual studies as well as major T&E programs; the 6.5-Inch Antitank Aircraft Rocket (Ram), developed and delivered in a month to meet urgent needs in Korea; the 2.75-Inch Folding-Fin Aircraft Rocket (Mighty Mouse) introduced in Korea and used in every conflict since then; and many other products developed at NOTS to meet the needs of the fleet. Also addressed are propellant technology and other significant innovations in applied research. Improvements to the station's unexcelled facilities R&D laboratories and T&E tracks and ranges are described, as is the community of China Lake, which played an important role in employee morale and productivity.

The 20 individuals presented in this book have gathered remarkable collections from the whimsical to the conceptual, from items already widely appreciated to the unconventional and beyond. The color photos present the collectors themselves surrounded by their favorite things. The interviews draw out the stories behind these remarkable collectors. They reveal the collectors capacity to derive emotional or intellectual stimulation from objects, their desire not merely to see but to own, their methods for unearthing items both wondrous and rare, and their willingness to allocate time and resources to the elusive goal of completeness.

Two Bits and Odd Days presents a collection of poetry written by author Thomas Springer over a thirty five year span. It consists of previously unpublished material, printed as a collection for the first time. Springer seeks to share his thoughts and insights through original poetry, recalling images and experiences as he has bumbled through his first fifty years. There is no controlling theme, intended or implied. From paying two bits for some candy to remembering the beauty of the Puget Sound, he relates sights and sounds from the mundane to the magnificent. Two Bits and Odd Days offers a deeper understanding of life and language and gives us the chance to take a moment to stop, look around, and wonder.
