Sam Slick Lizard Detective from the Author: Tiki King. One fine morning in 1986, Sam Slick slithered out from the imagination of Tiki King. (He wasn't called Tiki King back then, but that is a different story) He lit a smoke, poured a drink, and then set out on the adventures you will find in this book.(after finishing his drink, of course) Sam was created as an insert to some letters to a friend, was supposed to run four or five strips, and then depart as mysteriously as he appeared. Sam however, had other ideas. He just kept going, and even came out with his own line of Tee-shirts, stickers and buttons. Among those who knew him, Sam was a hit. Then with out a word, Sam disappeared. He surfaced briefly in 1989, but then dropped from sight, possibly never to return. Calls went unanswered, mail came back marked return to sender but now, almost 20 years after it all began, there is a light on in the office. Sam is back, alive and well, having new adventures, and probably watching you right now...In this first edition is the story that started it all "Bunny business" and the second story "Chicken Town" Available for the first time complete and in book form, beautifully type-set in comic sans! Sure to be a collectors item! (Provided you collect lizard detective comic novels)In a recent interview, author Tiki King said: "Can you really put a price on genius? I don't know, but the book is ten bucks. A bargain for people who usually spend twice as much..." Oh, yeah, and even though it is a comic book, it ain't for the kids! It's got violence, cigarettes, excessive drinking, innuendo, ukuleles, angry flies with machine guns...

This masterpiece collection represents a high watermark of America’s underbelly. Crime writing gets no better than this.

My Sister S Keeper from the Author: Bill Benners. Ever since his younger sister Martha woke him early one Sunday morning holding a Rubic's Cube in the palm of her hand with all the colored squares in perfect alignment, in some backward way, twelve-year-old Richard Baimbridge became his sister's motivation. If she saw me give up on anything, regardless of how insignificant-forgetting a phone number, finding the right nut to fit a bolt, or fixing a broken toy-she'd go after it with fanaticism and would not give up until she'd figured it out.Being better than Richard challenged Martha and when she succeeded, it fulfilled her. Richard was proud of her, but not like their Dad. Their Dad loved it. It seemed the more Martha outdid Richard, the more he liked it. By the time Richard left home at eighteen, there was a gap between his father and him that an ocean couldn't fill.But when Martha is brutally attacked while investigating the rape and attempted murder of a thirteen-year old for the News & Observer, Richard Baimbridge moves back to his hometown of Wilmington, North Carolina, to assist his family in caring for his sister and comes face to face with his tormented past and a dark family secret.Despised by his father and haunted by his past, he fights to stay above the flood of childhood trauma while longing to return to the life he'd built in New York City. But when the police exhaust all leads in his sister's case, wheelchair-bound Martha refuses to let her case die and, with Richard as her legs, insists on continuing the investigation herself, drawing Richard into the darker side of Wilmington - a place of greed, violence, and murder - where he, himself, becomes a primary murder suspect.

Anonymous Rex from the Author: Eric Garcia. "What would the world be like if the dinosaurs hadn't gone extinct? As this very funny book shows, for one thing, L.A. would be even weirder than it is now." --Dave Barry Vincent Rubio, a Los Angeles private investigator, is down on his luck: He's out of work. His car's been repossessed. His partner has died under mysterious circumstances. And his tail just won't stay put. Vincent is a dinosaur--a Velociraptor, to be precise. It seems the dinosaurs faked their extinction 65 million years ago and still roam the earth, disguised in convincing latex costumes that help them blend perfectly into human society. A heightened sense of smell allows the dinos to detect one another--Vincent's got an odor like a tasty Cuban cigar. When Vincent is called to investigate a two-bit case of arson at a hip dino nightclub, he discovers something much more sinister, which lures him back to New York City--the scene of his partner's death and a dangerous nexus of dinosaur and human intermingling. Will Vincent solve the mystery of his partner's death? Will a gorgeous blond chanteuse discover his true identity, jeopardizing both their lives? Will Vincent be able to conquer his dangerous addiction to basil, or will he wind up in Herba-holics Anonymous? Will he find true love, or resort to crumpled issues of Stegolicious? Somewhere between Jurassic Park and L.A. Confidential lies Eric Garcia's Anonymous Rex, one of the smartest, wittiest, and most entertaining debuts this side of the Ice Age.
