A failed suicide, a failed writer, and a failed husband, Ches is tragically depressed - that is, until he finds his muse in punk rocker/militia-marketer/free-spirit Thalia. Ches is haunted by Thalia's ghost - or perhaps a hallucination - and grows obsessed with writing her story...but due to his increasingly erratic behavior, he is quickly self-destructing. The pressures of public-school IT work, a middle-school revolution, an ex-wife, a crazed father, and an emotional crime spree culminate in a fantastic meta twist, creating a surprising end to this fabulously witty dark comedy. 1.

Hard Hed is a contemporary retelling of the Johnny Appleseed story. Hoosier Chapman, local historian and apple orchardist, has just been released from a Northwestern Ohio jail after serving two years for planting wild apple trees in a city park. Dropped at the State Line by a deputy sheriff, Hoosier treks west, overland and barefoot into Indiana state, recreating history and inventing myth, both public and private, along the way. Hoosier Chapman, the historian, yearns for a pre-colonial, pre-gunpowder freedom that lies just beyond the common fields, before the wetlands were drained and the forests cut down. Chaos and violence-like-fate-hound his every step. In five "Books" ranging in style from realism to fantasy to historical document to speculative fiction to lyric poetry, there is a joy of craft that shows through page after page. Hard Hed is part meta-story, part documentary, part violent romance, an unabashedly original work of fiction that roams in and out of time and place and point of view. Tidler has created an Indiana as Faulkner created a Mississippi and Steinbeck a California. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Michael Puttonen.

This is a very funny book about talking pigs. But it is so much more than that. As African Swine Fever Virus, a deadly virus that infects pigs, is spreading in China and threatens to infect pigs in Western Europe - and may even reach America - the timing of this provocative novel could not be more perfect. As fears grow that the virus might be capable of infecting humans, this book raises troubling questions about the honesty and competence of public health officials. Could the next human epidemic be lurking in pigs? Has a pig virus already quietly infected us, and is it responsible for mysterious illnesses like Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Alzheimer's, AIDS, and autism? The African Swine Fever Novel, which appears 70 years after Animal Farm, updates the political and existential status of man and pig in a laugh-out-loud, mini-epic of a narrative that listeners everywhere will be quoting at the water cooler.The African Swine Fever Novel has so many dynamic moving parts that it plays like it is reflecting the state of our world in real time. A contemporary allegorical fable about the overlapping breakdown of the porcine and human public health systems, Charles Ortleb's little masterpiece is full of the absurd zaniness of Catch-22 and the gritty horror of The Jungle. He has used his journalistic, critical, and comedic skills to expose our planet's newest biomedical Silent Spring. Some will call The African Swine Fever Novel an edgy, postmodern, meta-satire, while others will deem it a jolly good tale that opens our eyes to the situation of the human-like pigs and porcine humans in our midst. In the upside-down world of book, the pigs talk and the humans oink. The pigs are more terrified of getting cockamamie diseases from humans than the humans are of getting them from pigs. 1.

Preface of Peter J. Carroll: The Chaos Current has recently spawned a number of excellent grimoires by practical sorcerers who write from hardwon experience. This book must rank amongst the best of them. I have had the honour of knowing and working with Nick Hall for some years and I have seen him perform many of the acts of sorcery that he writes of in this book. The results are often as awesome as is the presence of the man himself. Having conjured with Nick on many occasions, I would not relish the prospect of conjuring against him. Rather than invest belief in abstruse metaphysical theory, Nick has chosen here to build a system from an eclectic range of practical procedures culled from many cultures. Informing the whole treatise however is the chaoist meta-belief that belief structures reality. This is pragmatic magick at its best. Devise or discover a technique that seems worth investing belief in, and if you can validate it, include it in your grimoire, without worrying how or why it works. Many times in the course of reading this text I stopped to make a note of something that seemed well worth trying out. That, I think, is the mark of a useful book. Unless the vast majority of magicians work in complete isolation from their more public peers, then the ratio of civilians who merely collect magic books to actual working magicians may be estimated at ninety nine to one. This is a book for the one-percenters, although it may inspire a few of the rest to actually pick up a wand for a change. All it takes is guts and imagination, not much specialist knowledge is required.
