Society columnist Nora Blackbird is thrust into the world of celebrity tabloid gossip when a billionaire buys the farm…. Nora’s assigned to write a profile on billionaire fashion designer Swain Starr, who recently retired to build a high-tech organic farm with his new wife, Zephyr, a former supermodel.

David Horowitz spent the first part of his life in the world of the Communist-progressive left, a politics he inherited from his mother and father, and later in the New Left as one of its founders. When the wreckage he and his comrades had created became clear to him in the mid-1970s, he left. Three decades of second thoughts then made him this movement’s principal intellectual antagonist. “For better or worse,” as Horowitz writes in the preface, “I have been condemned to spend the rest of my days attempting to understand how the left pursues the agendas from which I have separated myself, and why.” When Horowitz began his odyssey, the left had already escaped the political ghetto to which his parents’ generation and his own had been confined. Today, it has become the dominant force in America’s academic and media cultures, electing a president and achieving a position from which it can shape America’s future. How it achieved its present success and what that success portends are the overarching subjects of Horowitz’s conservative writings. Through the unflinching focus of one singularly engaged witness, the identity of a destructive movement that constantly morphs itself in order to conceal its identity and mission becomes disturbingly clear. Horowitz reflects on the years he spent at war with his own country, collaborating with and confronting radical figures like Huey Newton, Tom Hayden and Billy Ayers, as he made his transition from what the writer Paul Berman described as the American left’s “most important theorist” to its most determined enemy.

The adventures of a shapeshifting beast living amongst humanity are chronicled in this acclaimed science fiction trilogy. The Orphan No one, not even the beast itself, knows where it comes from or what it is. Witnesses’ descriptions vary. A big dog, a wolf, a lynx. A cross between a gorilla and a bear. Powerful jaws like a shark. A fiend out of hell . . . After a startling encounter in a Michigan barn, the beast transforms into a five-year-old boy named Robert Lee Burney and is adopted by a farmer and his wife. He begins learning about human society and lives peacefully among them until an attack on the farm forces him to flee . . . The Captive The shapeshifting beast’s new human form is a handsome young man named Barry Golden. He finds love, but it leads him down a dangerous path resulting in imprisonment in a seedy sideshow with little hope of escape . . . The Beast Barry has settled into a new life in New Mexico with a family and a job as a reporter. But that could all change when the beast discovers he’s not the only one of his kind on Earth. He must find a mate and prepare for something called The Leap . . . Meanwhile, another shapeshifter on the other side of the country saves a dying man from cancer. He wants to marry her, but she feels a call from the Other, someone waiting for her . . . A terrific read for fans of Ray Bradbury, Clifford Simak, and Theodore Sturgeon. Praise for Robert Stallman “Stallman reminds me of Ray Bradbury . . . A big talent.” —Peter Straub, author of Ghost Story “A vision of the perilous coming-together of a man-soul and monster-soul in us all. The result is an exciting blend of love and violence, of sensitivity and savagery.” —Fritz Leiber, author of Swords and Deviltry “The Orphan is frank, violent, and at times erotic in jarring, unexpected ways. The bottom line? Highly recommended.” —Black Gate

The Black Book  What if Germany had won World War II   A Chilling Glimpse into the Nazi Plans for Great Britain

For all the German war machine was supremely mechanised by 1940, it still relied on the arbitrariness of the weather, and the Wehrmacht planned to bring several thousand horses with it, to haul artillery and equipment.

The terrible truth behind Nazi Germany's plans for Great Britain, after WWII In July 1940, Walter Schellenberg of the German Secret Service drew up a list of 2,694 people believed to be living in Britain, who were known enemies of the Reich. In that month, the Wehrmacht was poised across the Channel ready to hit Britain with blitzkrieg, the terrible and hugely successful tactic that had already overwhelmed Poland, Denmark, Norway, Holland, Luxembourg, Belgium and France. The names on Schellenberg's list represent the heart and soul of a nation that made the British what they were but the list also includes a diaspora from Europe - the intellectuals, politicians and writers who had been driven out of their own homelands by the speed of the German conquests. All human life is there - lives that were, to the Nazis, unworthy of life. Historians have found the list a curiosity. Surely, it cannot be real? It was. The Black Book is the first book to evaluate the list, and look at the chilling reality of what Hitler had in store for the nation.
