Recalled To Life from the Author: Dan Burns. Chicago architect Peter O’Hara had a plan, a blueprint, for how he wanted to build his life. He had goals and ambitions and his path was clear. He had a loving wife and son, career success, and his final career goal was close within reach. The opportunity to become a partner in his firm was there for the taking. He almost had it all. But life and fate do not consider such plans. An unbelievable and unplanned event sets off a domino effect of repercussions that turn Peter’s life upside down, pushing him to his limits and causing him to re-evaluate everything he thought was important. "Recalled to Life turns everyday life on its head, and begs the reader to look more carefully on the flimsy fabric and hard work that hold together happiness. This is a modern story of generational family life in which the parts don't neatly make a whole." - Don Evans, Director, Chicago Literary Hall of Fame

Recalled To Life from the Author: Robert Silverberg. When a nervous scientist from Beller Laboratories approached James Harker, asking him to introduce a new scientific discovery to the world, Harker had his own reasons for agreeing. The discovery was a reanimation process - bringing the recently dead back to life. But Harker hadn't anticipated treachery within the ranks of the scientists working on the process, nor on the consternation and mounting hysteria when the news broke. James Harker faced the most demanding task of his life - and he didn't know if he would live to see the results. (First published 1962)

Recalled To Life from the Author: Grant Allen. It may sound odd to say so, but the very earliest fact that impressed itself on my memory was a scene that took place - so I was told - when I was eighteen years old, in my father's house, The Grange, at Woodbury. My babyhood, my childhood, my girlhood, my school-days were all utterly blotted out by that one strange shock of horror. My past life became exactly as though it had never been. I forgot my own name. I forgot my mother-tongue. I forgot everything I had ever done or known or thought about. Except for the power to walk and stand and perform simple actions of every-day use, I became a baby in arms again, with a nurse to take care of me. The doctors told me, later, I had fallen into what they were pleased to call "a Second State." I was examined and reported upon as a Psychological Curiosity. But at the time, I knew nothing of all this. A thunderbolt, as it were, destroyed at one blow every relic, every trace of my previous existence; and I began life all over again, with that terrible scene of blood as my first birthday and practical starting point.

Flash from the Author: Kate Flint. Flash! is a cultural history of flash photography, from its mid-nineteenth beginnings to the present day. All photography requires light, but the light of flash photography is quite distinctive: artificial, sudden, shocking, intrusive, and extraordinarily bright. For the first time, flash's history is told by putting it in the context of the broad, transnational development of photographic practices. Spanning a wide range of fascinating topics, Flash! explores role that flash has played in contributing to a popular denigration, or suspicion, of the photographer, and the role of the paparazzi, how flash photography has been used to reveal social deprivation and poverty and the representation and misrepresentation of race, how flash captures ordinary everyday life and makes us look at it anew, and how it illuminates things that would otherwise be lost in darkness. Drawing on the work of professionals and amateurs, news hounds and art photographers, photographers of crime and of wildlife, and on photographic journals and manuals, photographers' memoirs and interviews, exhibition reviews, advertisements and the volume captures those moments when flash erupts into novels, poems, TV, and films. Generously illustrated throughout, Flash! brings out the central role of this medium to the history of photography, and in doing so, challenges some commonly held ideas about the nature of photography itself.

Shell Shock from the Author: P. Leese. To the British soldiers of the Great War who heard about it, 'shell shock' was uncanny, amusing and sad. To those who experienced it, the condition was shameful, unjustly stigmatized and life-changing. The first full-length study of the British 'shell shocked' soldiers of the Great War combines social and medical history to investigate the experience of psychological casualties on the Western Front, in hospitals, and through their postwar lives. It also investigates the condition's origin and consequences within British culture.
