Little Triggers from the Author: Martyn Waites. 'Shaking down the politician hadn't given him the righteous kick he thought it would. Coming home to an empty house, he had opened the bottle, flirted with it, kissed it, made love to it, cried into it and, eventually, killed it.' Stephen Larkin is back in his native Newcastle and working as an agency journalist. To stop himself getting bored, he's fighting greed and corruption in his inimitable way by blackmailing the powers that be into keeping their campaign promises. It doesn't help fill the empty spaces in his life, though. He needs a purpose - which is why he jumps at the chance to track down a child abuser with friends in high places. A cynic like Larkin is automatically suspicious of people like Alan Swanson. A charismatic local chancer and self-styled Minister for Youth, Swanson is the man behind the "Rebirth of the Region" project. But is his interest in kids a chance for a photo-opportunity or something more sinister? Larkin thinks that, as a reporter, he knows all there is to know about the evil that men do. But nothing has prepared him for this... Tough, gutsy, brutal, LITTLE TRIGGERS is a tale of modern city crime

Little Triggers from the Author: Nicolette Opal Kittinger. Why do we make the choices we do when it comes to love, and how do those choices shape us? Magda is an Echo Boomer in her mid-twenties, as much a product of the switch from analog to digital and her Gen X parents as the relationships she's had with men in her life. She used to take boys' virginities, now she co-opts their lives in her writing. Through letters, journals, and short stories, Magda explores her past and present relationships in an effort to answer the questions, "Well, how did I get here?"

A Little Trigger from the Author: Neil Gaiman. A free digital sampler containing short story 'The Thing About Cassandra' and a preview of Neil Gaiman's new collection, TRIGGER WARNING. Neil Gaiman on 'The Thing About Cassandra' 'When I was about fourteen, it seemed much easier to imagine a girlfriend than to have one - that would involve actually talking to a girl, after all. So I would, I decided, write a girl's name on the cover of my exercise books and deny all knowledge of her when asked, thus, I fondly imagined, causing everyone to think that I actually had a girlfriend. I do not believe it worked. I never actually got around to imagining anything about her but the name.' A LITTLE TRIGGER also includes a preview of TRIGGER WARNING, the new short story collection from Neil Gaiman.

An Illustrated History Of Trigger from the Author: Leo Pando. Among certain fans, Roy Rogers' golden Palomino Trigger was more popular than the King of the Cowboys himself. Some are still infatuated by the horse decades after his death in 1965--and no wonder. Trigger is the most famous movie horse of all time. But in truth, "Trigger" was a composite of the original horse, a number of look-alikes and one extraordinary double (rarely acknowledged by Rogers) named Little Trigger. This book is a detailed look at the animals and men who created and nurtured the legend of "the smartest horse in the movies." It covers the life story of the original horse and the look-alikes, as well as the story of "Trigger," the legend. A filmography lists all films in which Trigger appeared, including some without Roy Rogers. Television and personal appearances are also discussed. Covered in their own chapters are horse hero comic books and Trigger collectibles. Also included are a biography of Trigger's trainer Glenn Randall and a chapter on Roy Rogers as horseman. Generous illustrations include many rare (some previously unpublished) photographs gathered from Trigger collectors nationwide, and even copies of Trigger's registration form and bill of sale.

Ulster Gay from the Author: Stephen Birkett. Matthew Woodhead has come out and thinks he has found the love of his life. He thought that once he'd gone through the trauma of coming out it would all be plain sailing but it wasn't so. Matt hadn't counted on the deeply ingrained attitudes of Northern Ireland's society in the 1980's. Matt and his friends battle against the twin prejudices of homophobia and sectarianism as the political situation deteriorates around them on their search for love and acceptance. 'Ulster Gay' is the second in the Thrice Alien sequence which began with 'Ulster Alien.'
