Superheroes Anonymous

Original Synopsis

"Superheroes Anonymous has a total of 336 pages which are papers from writer 'Lexie Dunne'. Everybody in Chicago has a "superhero sighting" story. So when a villain attacks editorial assistant Gail Godwin and she's rescued by superhero Blaze, it's a great story, and nothing more. Until it happens again. And again. Now the media has dubbed her Hostage Girl, nobody remembers her real name, and people are convinced that Blaze is just her boyfriend, Jeremy, in disguise. Gail's not so sure. All she knows is that when both Jeremy and Blaze leave town in the same week, she's probably doomed. Who will save her now? Yet, miraculously, the villains lose interest. Gail is able to return to her life … until she wakes up strapped to a metal table by a mad scientist who hasn't read the news. After escaping—now more than human herself—she's drawn into a secret underground world of superheroes. She'll have to come to terms with her powers (and weaknesses) to make it in the new society, and it's not easy. After all, there's a new villain on the rise, and she has her sights set on the one and only Hostage Girl. 2014-11-18 time of publication of the book, [-Harper Collins-]"

Heroes in the Night

Original Synopsis

"Heroes in the Night has a total of 288 pages which are papers from writer 'Tea Krulos'. On a frigid March night, journalist Tea Krulos shivered in a Milwaukee park, waiting for a masked crimefighter. Finally the Watchman arrived, not in a Batmobile or swinging from a web shooter, but driving a tan, four-door Pontiac. He was in costume, of course—a trenchcoat, motorcycle gloves, army boots, a domino mask, and a red hooded sweatshirt emblazoned with a “W” logo. The two had spoken before on the phone, but never face-to-mask. By the end of the interview, Krulos wasn’t sure if the Watchman was delightfully eccentric or completely crazy. But he was going to find out. Heroes in the Night traces Krulos’s journey into the strange subculture of Real Life Superheroes, random citizens who have adopted comic-book style personas and hit the streets to fight injustice—helping the homeless, gathering donations for food banks, or patroling their neighborhoods looking for crime to fight. By day, these modern Clark Kents work as dishwashers, pencil pushers, and executives in Fortune 500 companies. But by night, only the Shadow knows. Well, the Shadow and Tea Krulos. Through historic research, extensive interviews, and many long hours walking on patrol in Brooklyn and Seattle, San Diego and Minneapolis, Krulos discovered what being a RLSH is all about. Heroes in the Night profiles dozens of RLSHs and shares not only their shining, triumphant moments, but some of their ill-advised, terrifying disasters as well. Tea Krulos is a freelance journalist and creator of the blog “Heroes in the Night.” He lives in Arcadia, Florida. 2013-10-01 time of publication of the book, [-Chicago Review Press-]"

Expect Us

Original Synopsis

"Expect Us has a total of 240 pages which are papers from writer 'Jessica L. Beyer'. People use online social forums for all sorts of reasons, including political conversations, regardless of the site's main purpose. But what leads some of these people to take their online political activity into the offline world of activism? In Expect Us, Jessica L. Beyer looks at political consciousness and action in four communities, each born out of chaotic online social spaces that millions of individuals enter, spend time in, and exit moment by moment: Anonymous (4chan), IGN, World of Warcraft, and The Pirate Bay. None of these sites began as places for political organization per se, but visitors to each have used them as places for political engagement to one degree or another. Beyer explains the puzzling emergence of political engagement in these disparate social spaces and offers reasons for their varied capacity to generate political activism. Her comparative ethnography of these four online communities demonstrates that the technological organization of space itself has a strong role in determining the possibility of political mobilization. Overall, she shows that political mobilization rises when a site provides high levels of anonymity, low levels of formal regulation, and minimal access to small-group interaction. Furthermore, her findings reveal that young people are more politically involved than much of the civic engagement literature suggests. Expect Us offers surprising and compelling insights for anyone interested in understanding which factors and online environments lead to the greatest amount of impact offline. 2014-07-03 time of publication of the book, [-Oxford University Press-]"

Alan Moore

Original Synopsis

"Alan Moore has a total of 160 pages which are papers from writer 'Lance Parkin'. For nearly forty years, from his earliest work in underground Arts Lab projects to his latest work as author of League of Extraordinary Gentlemen and Lost Girls, Moore has pushed the boundaries like few others, ranging from farce and high comedy to the dark, grim work that epitomised the comics revolution of the late eighties. This book examines the recurring themes and how Moore's work has evolved over the years from his early comic work in Captain Britain and 2000 AD, through milestone series like V for Vendetta, Marvelman, Swamp Thing and Watchmen, to his current genre-stretching work. On the way Moore has written definitive stories of America's greatest superheroes Batman and Superman, penned some of the most widely read graphic novels of all time, and helped turn comics into an indispensible art form. In this Pocket Essential you'll meet Moore the pop icon (everyone from the Simpsons to Transvision Vamp have hung out with Halo Jones), Moore the performance artist and magician, Moore the novelist, and above all Moore the writer who helped change the face of comics forever. As well as an introductory essay, this book is a comprehensive survey of Alan Moore's career. It also contains a complete list of his works, including projects that never saw the light of day. 2011-03-31 time of publication of the book, [-Oldcastle Books-]"

Hitchcock and Philosophy

Original Synopsis

"Hitchcock and Philosophy has a total of 288 pages which are papers from writer 'David Baggett, William A. Drumin'. The shower scene in Psycho; Cary Grant running for his life through a cornfield; “innocent” birds lined up on a fence waiting, watching — these seminal cinematic moments are as real to moviegoers as their own lives. But what makes them so? What deeper forces are at work in Hitchcock’s films that so captivate his fans? This collection of articles in the series that’s explored such pop-culture phenomena as Seinfeld and The Simpsons examines those forces with fresh eyes. These essays demonstrate a fascinating range of topics: Sabotage’s lessons about the morality of terrorism and counter-terrorism; Rope’s debatable Nietzschean underpinnings; Strangers on a Train’s definition of morality. Some of the essays look at more overarching questions, such as why Hitchcock relies so heavily on the Freudian unconscious. In all, the book features 18 philosophers paying a special homage to the legendary auteur in a way that’s accessible even to casual fans. 2011-09-30 time of publication of the book, [-Open Court-]"

Reclaiming Inner Being

Original Synopsis

"Reclaiming Inner Being has a total of 128 pages which are papers from writer 'David Beomsun Rhee'. What does it mean for an individual to truly be, to truly do, and to truly live? What is the relation between true being, doing, and living? These are among the most fundamental questions pondered by man. We may be told that we become what we do in life. The simplicity and apparent clarity of this sentiment make it appealing. But what if the currents of the streams of being and doing run in conflict rather than in tandem? And how much does necessity interfere with ones search for being? In light of many of todays problems and questions, it is evident that no simple formula will serve as a complete solution. If one cannot go as far as discovering true being just yet, one can approach nearer to an answer by investigating the concept of becoming, the origins of being. The four essays of this work explore the nature of the problem of individual being, the unique obstacles to its realization, the phenomenon of self-priming and cultural creation, and the related challenges with which we are faced today. 2012-09-28 time of publication of the book, [-Xlibris Corporation-]"

Tookey's Turkeys

Original Synopsis

"Tookey's Turkeys has a total of 482 pages which are papers from writer 'Christopher Tookey'. Tookey’s Turkeys identifies the worst 144 movies of the last 25 years. Christopher Tookey has seen at least 10,000 films. For eight years, he was TV and then film critic for theSunday Telegraph. For twenty years, he was sole film critic for the Daily Mail and the world’s most popular internet newspaper, Mail Online. In 2013, he won the award Arts Reviewer of the Year from the London Press Club. This is a book about 144 of Christopher’s least favourite movies. In his opinion, the movies we hate tell us as much about present-day culture as our favourites. All offer insights into the mindset of those who made or commissioned them. Virtually all make us aware of things we might rather not know about our “culture” and “values”, or lack thereof. Technically, movies are more advanced than ever before; yet, paradoxically, seldom have so many wrongheaded movies been made. And never have they plumbed the depths of ineptitude, depravity and risibility that they have over the last 25 years. The choice of films Christopher has disliked over the past two and a half decades may be controversial. Some movies he finds ridiculous have achieved critical acclaim. A few have won Oscars. But the fact that The Da Vinci Code, The Hangover II and Star Wars: Episode III – Revenge of the Sith are among the most commercially successful movies of all time should not disguise the fact that they are also, in his opinion, bloody awful. Tookey’s Turkeys will appeal greatly to the general reader and in particular to all film fans, including those who have followed Christopher’s reviews over the years. In a companion volume, Tookey’s Talkies, Christopher has written about the best 144 films that he has seen over the same period.

Caught in a war that pits greed and ambition against conscience and love, Emma Conway faces the fight of her life-to save her family, her company, and everything she treasures. Emma is finally living the dream-a happy second marriage and a great career. She has built Percival & Baxter's painkiller, Acordinol, into a huge success. But her dream becomes a nightmare when a Wall Street raider threatens a hostile takeover. Worse, the raider is no ordinary cutthroat but her ex-husband Josh Katz, father of their teenage son. P&B's Poison Pill defense implodes when a mysteriously tainted batch of Acordinol starts killing people, including P&B's CEO. Emma is put in charge as P&B's stock plummets. Her ex's game traps her in a web of secrets locked within secrets. A shadowy Russian oligarch behind Josh is lusting after the holy grail of drugs, the first Viagra for women.
