Captain Dad from the Author: Pat Byrnes. Pat Byrnes worked at home and made his own hours. His wife’s job (Illinois Attorney General) was not so flexible. So when the first baby came, he naively volunteered to go where few men have gone before and stay home with the kids. On one condition. He wouldn’t be called Mr. Mom, but . . . Captain Dad. Byrnes has collected his insights in the first book about stay-at-home fatherhood by a professional humorist who has lived the part. He reports on the front lines of modern parenting, tackling all of the expected subjects, like sleep deprivation and the constant battle against Disney for your child’s affections. But he also covers the less expected, more random moments on the job and the surprising insights they offer. From the absurd pride that comes from being able to change a diaper almost anywhere to the surprising talent you develop for improvising answers to Life’s Most Important Questions, such as “Why is bird poop white?” With wit, pith, and vinegar, Byrnes examines this hitherto unexamined life—and finds it worth living.

This operation, initiated at the direct order of Fidel Castro, will involve money, love, and cocaine. The Miami-Cuban National Federation, in Miami, has been aware that the Cuban Government had been stockpiling massive quantities of cocaine in Cuba which was being held as a reserve much like other Nations stockpiled gold. Their intent is to use Briggs Chester to convince the Cuban Government that he is a drug dealer with one hundred millions dollars available to purchase cocaine. The Cuban government, in dire need of hard currency will put together a plan to sell Chester the cocaine for his money. Fidel will take direct charge of the operation which will take place on a island in the Bahama chain. A fast moving story that culminates in the middle of a hurricane on the small Caribbean Island of Great Inagua.

Cookbook For A New Europe from the Author: Richard Segal. To serve society or humanity? It's been fourteen years since the basketball-mad detective Fran Obrien captured the urban bomber Lavi, who has since moved to Spain and rehabilitated himself beyond recognition. Fran is fresh off a two-year sabbatical, during which he tended to 11-year-old Ben, the family comedian, and 17-year-old Alice, with, yes, as much attitude as you’d expect. His estranged boss Karl has retired and Fran must learn to deal with the new brass – no small task itself. His first assignment is to investigate an act of alleged political corruption which seems more wild goose chase than duck in a barrel, leading him to question his decision to return to work. After an extended-family culinary expedition to Budapest, Fran's nine-to-five job takes him ‘almost’ to Albany and to Central America, where he must untangle the mother of all webs. His wife, local family doctor Darby, goes along for the ride, and, oh, piña coladas "to die for." For a detective and amateur gourmet chef like no other, Cookbook for a New Europe is a ride Fran certainly didn't expect. He’s been fiercely focused for years, but a spate of unintended yet momentous events unfolds once he gives free rein to his emotions, and his recipes.

Captain Father from the Author: Isaiah Tremaine. "The best salute to Star Trek...that's not a Trek story! It's an adventure where no other Trek tale has gone before." "A brilliant metafiction. For Trekkers it's a treasure chest of references to Star Trek, cleverly laced in a terrific story about a present-day earth family with every day real problems." "Red alert! Battle stations!!" I helped my beaten and bloodied seventeen-year-old brother get to his station on the bridge. We were in trouble; all sensors and monitors verified that our home was about to be attacked! Captain Father recounts the undertakings of an unlikely family of twenty-first century adopted children as seen through the eyes of its newest member, Houston Robinson. Houston has as much to learn about his new brothers and sisters as he does about his new home, an earthbound starship called the Lexington. Though different in age and culture-some with troubled pasts-these young people join forces to defend their home and each other. And along the way they come to adore their lovingly eccentric father and his uncanny fascination with Star Trek.
