Gossamer Hall from the Author: Erin Samiloglu. Juan Fuentes has a special gift. He can make objects appear out of nowhere, true pieces of matter created only with the fragments of his imagination, and on a stormy night during a history class at Brookhaven College, Juan makes the dead come alive. Ruthless nineteenth century murderers Mack “Mad” Maron and his three henchmen rise from their unmarked graves bloodthirsty, ripe for vengeance, and the night becomes one of survival for the students of Gossamer Hall—Lars, a criminal on the run. Reagan, a woman recovering from the suspicious death of her daughter. Lily, a beautiful girl with a dark secret. Josh and Caleb, two jocks on the rebound after a brush with drugs. Mark, a savvy whiz kid. As the night deepens into a hole of death, as the thunder and lightning rage war in the sky, it becomes clear there is only one way to stop the undead evil, and the secret lies within the dark rooms of Gossamer Hall….

Gossamer from the Author: Lois Lowry. Where do dreams come from? What stealthy nighttime messengers are the guardians of our most deeply hidden hopes and our half-forgotten fears? Drawing on her rich imagination, two-time Newbery winner Lois Lowry confronts these questions and explores the conflicts between the gentle bits and pieces of the past that come to life in dream, and the darker horrors that find their form in nightmare. In a haunting story that tiptoes between reality and imagination, two people—a lonely, sensitive woman and a damaged, angry boy—face their own histories and discover what they can be to one another, renewed by the strength that comes from a tiny, caring creature they will never see. Gossamer is perfect for readers not quite ready for Lois Lowry's Newbery-Award winner The Giver and also for readers interested in dreams, nightmares, spirits and the dream world.

Gossamer Seasons from the Author: Haynes W. “Buddy” Dugan II. Haynes W. “Buddy” Dugan II has had an adventurous life as a student, marine officer, social worker, military chaplain, and active sportsman. Having lived through many historical events, he offers insight into the events from World War II, the Cuban blockade, Vietnam, and the Bosnian deployment, to the present. Along the way he met several notable people; he shares his account of meetings with Colonel James Earl Rudder, of the Rudder’s Rangers who seized the German gun positions on Pointe du Hoc on D Day; Clark Clifford, who was a counsel to U.S. presidents and the Secretary of Defense; Walter Cronkite; Debbie Boone; Muhammad Ali; and Archbishop Desmond Tutu. Buddy Dugan takes us back in time as he describes his adventures from his childhood up through seven decades of active life, involving soldiering, parachuting, SCUBA diving, sailing, hunting, riding horses, and leading pack animals into Rocky Mountain wilderness areas to hunt and fish. He spent over six years in Europe and skied in Germany, Austria, and Switzerland. Gossamer Seasons tells the story of a life fully lived, in which tragedies occurred and loves were lost. It is a life that served and assisted others, and one in which love ultimately triumphs.

The Man From Gossamer Ridge from the Author: Paula Graves. To criminology professor Alicia Solano, serial killers aren't just academic. A very real one is stalking her now, possibly the same madman who brought Gabe Cooper to town. The sexy Southern lawman still blames himself for an unsolved murder and this time, he'll do anything to catch the killer—and keep Alicia alive. Not that the feisty prof wants his protection. Her protests prove useless when Gabe insists on moving in with her. And although Gabe senses getting Alicia to trust him—especially after surviving her own traumatic past—is going to be a challenge, it'll be worth it. Gabe knows better than anyone just how far this murderer will go to get what he wants. But so will Gabe. And what he wants is Alicia.

Music Hall And Modernity from the Author: Barry J. Faulk. The late-Victorian discovery of the music hall by English intellectuals marks a crucial moment in the history of popular culture. Music Hall and Modernity demonstrates how such pioneering cultural critics as Arthur Symons and Elizabeth Robins Pennell used the music hall to secure and promote their professional identity as guardians of taste and national welfare. These social arbiters were, at the same time, devotees of the spontaneous culture of “the people.” In examining fiction from Walter Besant, Hall Caine, and Henry Nevinson, performance criticism from William Archer and Max Beerbohm, and late-Victorian controversies over philanthropy and moral reform, scholar Barry Faulk argues that discourse on music-hall entertainment helped consolidate the identity and tastes of an emergent professional class. Critics and writers legitimized and cleaned up the music hall, at the same time allowing issues of class, respect, and empowerment to be negotiated. Music Hall and Modernity offers a complex view of the new middle-class, middlebrow mass culture of late-Victorian London and contributes to a body of scholarship on nineteenth-century urbanism. The book will also interest scholars concerned with the emergence of a professional managerial class and the genealogy of cultural studies.

Her Beautiful Monster from the Author: Adi Tantimedh. Enjoy another 'exhilarating roller-coaster ride of unusual cases' (Publishers Weekly) in this second book of the Ravi PI series, featuring detective Ravi Chandra Singh and his team at the gleefully amoral, unfailingly dangerous secret agency Golden Sentinels. When Ravi's colleagues at Golden Sentinels discover that he sees gods in moments of heightened anxiety and stress, they are surprisingly fine with it. They even encourage him to incorporate his visions into his work, especially now that the cases have become more intense, with many hidden risks at play. But their latest case - a search for a dead Russian oligarch's last will and testament - leads to more than anyone expected: a missing heir, murderous relatives, and geopolitical implications. So, when Ravi's boss sends him to Los Angeles to wait out the heat, it's almost a relief...until Ravi's past catches up to him. In this thrilling and complex sequel to Her Nightly Embrace, nothing is what it seems, as Ravi stumbles upon a dangerous scheme that involves the CIA, MI5, and a wanted man with a $20 million price on his head.
