FIRST LOVE NEVER FADES . . . It's been a long time since widow Fia Thomas felt the spark of physical attraction. But from the moment she meets Elliot Ross one stormy night, she yearns for a fresh start, for him to make her feel whole and well again. With his broad shoulders and a warm smile crinkling his dark eyes, he could finally offer her the solace she's been seeking. And she's willing to give him anything in return . . . except a promise that could break his heart. Now that Elliot is out of the Army, he's looking for a place to call home. Tallgrass was just a stop to stretch his legs, yet one look at Fia halts him in his tracks. In her sweet, sassy company, he finds the soul mate he never thought he'd have. But Fia is holding something back-something that keeps her from making any plans. Elliot's new mission: gain Fia's trust...and convince her that summer's end can mean a new beginning.

An essential American novel from Sandra Dallas, an unparalleled writer of our history, and our deepest emotions... During World War II, a family finds life turned upside down when the government opens a Japanese internment camp in their small Colorado town. After a young girl is murdered, all eyes (and suspicions) turn to the newcomers, the interlopers, the strangers. This is Tallgrass as Rennie Stroud has never seen it before. She has just turned thirteen and, until this time, life has pretty much been what her father told her it should be: predictable and fair. But now the winds of change are coming and, with them, a shift in her perspective. And Rennie will discover secrets that can destroy even the most sacred things. Part thriller, part historical novel, Tallgrass is a riveting exploration of the darkest--and best--parts of the human heart.

Some Dance to Remember has been reviewed as ¿the gay Gone with the Wind.¿ But such popular praise does not do literary justice to this eyewitness classic of that ¿first golden decade after Stonewall.¿ This best-selling epic of San Francisco¿s Castro seethes with sex, drugs, panic, and passionate characters: a gay writer, a drop-dead gorgeous bodybuilder, a cabaret singer, a Vietnam vet, a Hollywood bitch, and a rough-trade porn mogul. Narrator Magnus Bishop channels Ryan O¿Hara, a writer pioneering a tell-all voice in the emerging subculture of gay magazines. When Ryan meets Quentin Crisp¿s ¿perfect man¿ in Kick Sorenson, lust and politics collide. Steroids rule Castro Street. Gender fascism divides queens versus clones into gay civil war over correct queer identity. White assassinates Milk. Gay rioters burn City Hall. Ryan, romancing the morphing trickster Kick, cruises through nightclubs, ecstatic sex, and leather rituals in legendary bathhouses. Sprung from Isherwood¿s Cabaret, 1970s San Francisco mirrored 1930s Berlin: decadent, dazzling, diverse, doomed. It¿s all here. A city. A murder. A plague. A lost civilization. A love story. Some Dance to Remember is dedicated to Jack Fritscher¿s 1970s bicoastal lover, Robert Mapplethorpe.¿My God, what a book! It¿s all there, done with Fritscher¿s usual élan and verve. I wouldn¿t be surprised if he has written what will be looked on as that period¿s Great American Gay Novel. What lovely stuff! ¿Sam Steward (Phil Andros)¿Jack Fritscher didn¿t invent the Castro. He just made it mythical. HEADY, EROTIC, COMIC....A comprehensive fictional chronicle of the best of times....If one can learn American history via the novels of Gore Vidal, one can learn gay American history through Some Dance.¿ ¿ The Advocate, David Perry¿Cinematic intensity....A brilliant record of gay life before AIDS....An astonishing spectrum of queer lives....This sprawling saga...has not lost a whit of its muscular passion, punchy immediacy, or transformative literary impact.¿ ¿ Books to Watch Out For, Richard Labonté¿STAGGERINGLY ORIGINAL and completely absorbing....Here is San Francisco¿s gay male scene in the 1970s and ¿80s as never told, or documented, before.¿ ¿ Michael Bronski, Author of Culture Clash: The Making of Gay Sensibility

The tallgrass prairie of the early 1800s, a beautiful and seemingly endless landscape of wildflowers and grasses, is now a tiny remnant of its former expanse. As a literary landscape, with much of the American environmental imagination focused on a mainstream notion of more spectacular examples of wild beauty, tallgrass is even more neglected. Prairie author and advocate John T. Price wondered what it would take to restore tallgrass prairie to its rightful place at the center of our collective identity. The answer to that question is his Tallgrass Prairie Reader, a first-of-its-kind collection of literature from and about the tallgrass bioregion. Focusing on autobiographical nonfiction in a wide variety of forms, voices, and approaches—including adventure narrative, spiritual reflection, childhood memoir, Native American perspectives, literary natural history, humor, travel writing and reportage—he honors the ecological diversity of tallgrass itself and provides a range of models for nature writers and students. The chronological arrangement allows readers to experience tallgrass through the eyes and imaginations of forty-two authors from the nineteenth to the twenty-first centuries. Writings by very early explorers are followed by works of nineteenth-century authors that reflect the fear, awe, reverence, and thrill of adventure rampant at the time. After 1900, following the destruction of the majority of tallgrass, much of the writing became nostalgic, elegiac, and mythic. A new environmental consciousness asserted itself midcentury, as personal responses to tallgrass were increasingly influenced by larger ecological perspectives. Preservation and restoration—informed by hard science—emerged as major themes. Early twenty-first-century writings demonstrate an awareness of tallgrass environmental history and the need for citizens, including writers, to remember and to help save our once magnificent prairies.

Hier werden Albträume wahr Abermals legt Stephen King, u. a. Träger des renommierten »O.-Henry-Preises«, eine umfassende und vielseitige Kurzgeschichtensammlung vor. Von den insgesamt 20 Storys wurden bislang erst drei auf Deutsch veröffentlicht. Die Originale erschienen teilweise in Zeitschriften; andere sind bislang gänzlich unveröffentlicht. Nicht immer blanker Horror, aber immer psychologisch packend und manchmal schlicht schmerzhaft wie ein Schlag in die Magengrube – Geschichten, die uns einladen, Stephen Kings Meisterschaft im Erzählen aufs Neue beizuwohnen, oder, wie er selbst in seinem Basar der bösen Träume ausruft: »Hereinspaziert, ich habe die Geschichten eigens für Sie geschrieben. Aber seien Sie vorsichtig. Bestenfalls sind sie bissig und schnappen zu.«

“Why is it that we soon forget the very one we long for? Why are knowledge, understanding and judgment so alluring to us? When will that tree be cut down forever and never again tantalize and entice us to run from life and to embrace death?” Let’s go back to the garden, where we can dance with our Papa God. Do you remember what it was like? In Until Now: My Walk with God... So Far, Roland Filbrun takes us on a poetic journey through his own experiences with love, with disappointment, and most of all with the faithfulness and fierce love of our amazing God. Roland shares his journey and insights from a faith-filled life lived to the fullest. From his first experiences with the ever-alluring forbidden fruit to his wrestling with legalism and finally to God's heart-altering revelations received during and since his traumatic brain injury, this book will take you on a journey with Papa you will never forget and it will challenge you in your own walk of faith. Insights from Papa: “This is our story, your story, the human story of the journey out of a cursed world and into the Garden of Grace. Every death I've experienced along the way was nothing more than the birth canal that brought me from the dark womb of the lie into the bright world of truth!” “In all of those moments when you have turned from the living tree and ate of the tree of death, God wants to reign supreme. When we won’t accept this truth, it is only because we are eating this poisonous fruit, believing the lie that the absence of sin is better than the presence of a Redeemer!” “I will choose to celebrate the sins that were done against me because truly, they are way more beautiful as gemstones of redemption than as dusty skeletons buried in a closet of self-protection.”
