Summary

In this comic take on fairy tales, a young prince tires of rescuing maidens and hopes to tackle a new challenge: losing his virginity. 
 
There’s always trouble in Illyria: dragons to slay, villains to fight, and one beautiful princess after another demanding to be rescued from a fate worse than death. It’s a full-time job for Charming, noble prince and professional hero. In fact, young Charming thinks he’s just about ready for a leave of absence. 
 
But you’re always on call in the Slay and Rescue business, and soon Charming is working overtime when he becomes embroiled in a plot involving an evil sorceress, an enchanted castle, one angry dragon, and no less than three beauteous damsels in distress, each with her own plans for our hero, and none of them to be trusted long enough to shake a sword at . . .

    Thoughts on nature, politics, love, and much more—from the environmentalist and author of such classics as Desert Solitaire and The Monkey Wrench Gang.   Finished just two weeks before his death, A Voice Crying in the Wilderness is a collection of Edward Abbey’s observations, both bitingly witty and inspirational, on a wide range of topics—from philosophy and writing to music, money, sex, and sports.   Abbey chose each passage himself from his own journals and previous writings—and warns us in his typical humorous style that some of the notes “may be unconscious plagiarisms from the great and dead (never steal from the living and mediocre).”   Abbey’s last wish was to be buried in an unmarked grave somewhere out in the vast desert he loved so much. This book is an enduring signal from that desert, through the words of one of the singular American thinkers of our times.

    I'm Not Okay!
    Who, but a wise guy would engineer some of the stunts Davis has pulled and then have the audacity to talk about them?

Here's some of the best comedy you've ever experienced. And it's all wrapped up in a message of hope that can change your life forever.
    Is It Just Me?
    Ken Davis offers some of his funniest material to date during an appearance in the heart of Dairyland. One of America's favorite speakers, Ken joins Wisconsin's famed "cheeseheads" for a brilliant performance that pays tribute to veterans, explores the differences between men and women, and ponders the question: Is It Just Me?

    “Fang” Mulheisen joins forces with his nemesis to uncover a terrorist plot—from “the best-kept secret of hard-boiled crime fiction connoisseurs” (The New York Times Book Review).   When a bomb goes off at an environmental protest, Detroit police detective “Fang” Mulheisen’s own mother is among the wounded. He turns in his badge to care for her—but once she recovers, his instincts drive him to return to the case on his own.   Detective Sergeant Mulheisen soon learns that his longtime nemesis, hired gun Joe Service, is also searching for the bombers on behalf of the Lucani—a rogue group of skilled agents who do what the law cannot. Now, working alongside a killer he’s hunted for years, Mulheisen delves into a world of well-armed militias, government secrets, and hidden agendas.   In this “thoroughly entertaining” thriller of domestic terror, two of Jon A. Jackson’s most dogged—and dangerous—characters pair up to deliver everything readers expect from this master of the genre (Booklist).   “No Man’s Dog is an exhilarating tour of the potentialities of domestic terrorism where you begin to understand Homeland Security as a Ping-Pong ball of dread and paranoia.” —Jim Harrison, author of Legends of the Fall   “Razor-sharp.” —Kirkus Reviews

    A darkly humorous fictionalized account of Adolf Hitler’s alleged stay in England as a young man. Before becoming the Führer of the Third Reich, it is said Adolf Hitler was a failed artist who bummed around at his half-brother’s house in Liverpool from 1912 to 1913. Based on the memoir of the future despot’s sister-in-law, Bridget Hitler, Young Adolf is a vivid imagining of this alleged visit to the United Kingdom.   The story begins with Adolf aboard a ferry, aiming to avoid Austrian military service. He has no luggage, save for a book, and holds a false passport made out in the name of his dead brother, paranoid that the authorities might be tailing him. But what Adolf should be worried about is how he will be received at his destination. At the train station, his brother Alois greets him with outrage. Alois had sent money for their sister Angela to travel to Liverpool, but Adolf stole the funds.   Taking refuge on the sofa for days, Adolf makes only one friend: Jewish landlord Mr. Meyer, surprisingly enough. With mutual interests in opera and architecture, the two become close, though Adolf does mention his thoughts on race relations and “contaminated blood.” Eventually, under pressure, Adolf stops loafing and gets a menial job. Most people think he won’t ever amount to much, but it’s clear that Adolf has bigger aspirations.   Originally published in 1978, this was the first foray into historical fiction for award-winning author Beryl Bainbridge, who would become famous for works like Master Georgie and the bestselling Every Man for Himself. Combining dark humor and psychological intrigue, Young Adolf is a portrait of both a man and a city before two World Wars changed everything.
