The Smuggler S Ghost from the Author: Steve Lamb. When marijuana turned a Florida teen into a millionaire fugitive. According to a 1983 article entitled "Tales of some who are citizens of the world" that appeared in the St. Petersburg Times, Steve Lamb was "one of Pinellas County's most renowned smugglers" and was being investigated in various states, including Michigan, North Carolina, New Mexico, and Nevada. When millions of rebellious college students and high schoolers sat smoking the same thing and singing the same songs, Steve Lamb was practicing the laws of supply and demand, hop-scotching through the Caribbean in search of his first million dollars. I was in Federal Law enforcement during the sixties and seventies, worked hundreds of narcotic cases and thought I'd either seen or heard everything there was about drugs and drug trafficking. I was wrong. The Smugglers Ghost straightened me out. It's a page turner. -Bernie Rhoades, Chief U. S. Probation and Parole Officer for the District of Utah (ret.), author of D. B. Cooper, the Real McCoy. A gripping, heart-thumping ride-along with smugglers as they buy boatloads of marijuana in Jamaica and spirit them into Florida. They elude determined cops, corrupt some others, make a pile of money. And some live to tell the tale. And that's just one facet of this compelling, first-person true story of the man who came to be known as "one of Pinellas County's most renowned smugglers." -Frank C. Strunk, author of Jordon's Wager, Jordon's Showdown, and Throwback. The story of Steve Lamb is Florida history in its finest telling. Too often as we look back at the events that shaped our present world we forget to look at the person who emerges from our midst to cause social change that could never have been predicted. If you smoked your first joint at a rock concert in the sixties or seventies then you might want to read the saga of one of the men who made it possible. -Gene Proulx, Special Agent in Charge of NOAA's Southeast Region, (ret.), Offfice of Law Enforcement, author of Fresh Catch.

Archivist Wasp from the Author: Nicole Kornher-Stace. Norton Award finalist YALSA Best Fiction for Young Adults 2016 Kirkus Reviews Best Teen Books of 2015 Book Riot Best of 2015 Buzzfeed 32 Best Fantasy Novels of 2015 ABC Best Books for Young Readers Los Angeles Times Summer Reading Locus Recommended Reading Wasp's job is simple. Hunt ghosts. And every year she has to fight to remain Archivist. Desperate and alone, she strikes a bargain with the ghost of a supersoldier. She will go with him on his underworld hunt for the long-long ghost of his partner and in exchange she will find out more about his pre-apocalyptic world than any Archivist before her. And there is much to know. After all, Archivists are marked from birth to do the holy work of a goddess. They're chosen. They're special. Or so they've been told for four hundred years. Archivist Wasp fears she is not the chosen one, that she won't survive the trip to the underworld, that the brutal life she has escaped might be better than where she is going. There is only one way to find out. Praise for Archivist Wasp: "Archivist Wasp is a gorgeous and complex book, featuring a deadly girl who traverses an equally deadly landscape. Wasp won me over, and she's sure to find fans among teens and grown-ups alike." — Phoebe North, author of Starglass "A tremendously inventive and smart novel. Archivist Wasp is like Kafka by way of Holly Black and Shirley Jackson, but completely original. Highly recommended." — Jeff VanderMeer, author of the Southern Reach trilogy "A gorgeous, disturbing, compelling book with a smart, complicated heroine who bestrides her post-apocalyptic world like a bewildered force of nature. Reading it was a wild ride and a thoroughly satisfying one." — Delia Sherman, author of The Freedom Maze "One of the most revelatory and sublime books I've ever read, Archivist Wasp is a must-read for fans of post-apocalyptic fiction. Kornher-Stace is a genius, and I can't wait to see what she does next!" — Tiffany Trent, author of The Unnaturalists "Brutal post-apocalypse meets sci-fi techno-thriller meets a ghost story for the ages in this astonishingly original novel from Nicole Kornher-Stace. You've never read anything like Archivist Wasp, but once you have you'll be clamoring for more." — Mike Allen, author of Unseaming “Sharp as a blade and mythically resonant, Archivist Wasp is a post-apocalyptic ghost story unlike anything else I’ve read. Trust me, you want this book.” — Karina Sumner-Smith, author of Radiant “Archivist Wasp turns destiny on its head, and it re-invents the world you know to do it. Strong. Fast. Addictive.” — Darin Bradley, author of Noise “Goes off like a firecracker in the brain: the haunted landscape, the sure-footed, blistering prose — and, of course, the heroine herself, the most excellent Archivist Wasp.” — Kelly Link, author of Get in Trouble Praise for Nicole Kornher-Stace: "In richly textured, atmospheric prose, Kornher-Stace delivers a spellbinding tale of deception, betrayal, and the darker possibilities of playacting."—Booklist "Mesmerizing from the first page and once you get into its flow, a page turner to boot."—Fantasy Book Critic "Absorbing, exciting, intellectually fascinating, emotionally true, and well-crafted, bobbles and all."—Ideomancer

Ghost Hunter S Casebook from the Author: Bowen Pearse. Andrew Green was for sixty years one of Britain's most active and best-known ghost-hunters. The Daily Telegraph famously christened him 'the Spectre Inspector'. The author of best-sellers such as 'Our Haunted Kingdom' and 'Ghost Hunting, a Practical Guide', he investigated hundreds of reported hauntings during his career, from famous cases such as 'the poltergeist girl of Battersea' to cases where a client had simply taken the wrong medication before bed. His interest in the supernatural began on a summer's day in 1944. As he explored the roof of a haunted house, a compulsion suddently gripped him - 'Walk over the edge', it urged. Only his father's intervention saved him; he later discovered that several other visitors had not been as fortunate. This experience resulted in a life-long fascination with the paranormal, and the most important cases from his lifetime of research are collected together in this volume - alongside new research and many reports that have never previously been published. This is an essential guide to the career of Britain's most famous ghost-hunter, and indeed to the paranormal history of 'our haunted kingdom'.
