What's a guy gotta do to get a break around here?
Legion is invited to speak at the Intergalactic Peace Symposium, a conference based around military response, as a last-minute presenter, to showcase the accomplishments of the Good Guys.
…to get a break…
Much to Legion's irritation, work follows him wherever he goes when Master Asinine and his typical enclave of idiots make an appearance in the hopes of capturing and cloning the Good Guy leader. For some stupid reason.
But when Legion and Asinine are joined by a mysterious third faction hell-bent on destroying the universe, the two must put aside their differences to stop the shadowy cloaked figures. And just who is this Lord Alpha who sent them anyway?

A wily lady thief is groomed for mafia infamy in this “masterpiece of diabolical design” from the author of Deadman (The New York Times Book Review). Helen Sedlacek thought that when she stole millions from the mob, she’d be running for the rest of her life. So she’s more than a little surprised when mob boss Humphrey DiEbola offers her a job. DiEbola claims that he’s looking to retire. With an eye for ruthless talent, he wants to groom Helen for an executive position by putting her in charge of his illegal cigar factory and seeing what she can do. But when a poker game at DiEbola’s home turns into a shooting gallery, all bets are suddenly off in the Detroit underworld. And police detective “Fang” Mulheisen has to figure out all the angles. Is Helen gaining ground for herself and her gun-happy boyfriend Joe Service? Or is someone else trying to take the entire city for themselves—leaving the competition dead in the streets? This gutsy entry in “one of the wildest and wittiest crime series going” reaffirms Jackson’s place among the greats of thrilling police fiction (Publishers Weekly).
This comic third novel in our Berry Fleming series centers on Lucinda, a local girl-makes-good, who returns on her psychoanalyst’s suggestion to Fredricksville, Georgia, in order to “find herself.” A successful author and playwright in New York City, she poses a distinct problem for the residents of The Homestead—a large, communal home left to any member of the Telfair family who wishes to stay—since all of the characters in her novels and plays are based upon her relatives’ antics. And the members of the Telfair clan, for their part, prefer to keep their private comings and goings out of the public eye. Hustlers, hoteliers, swindlers and drunkards, bankers and bank robbers, madams and prostitutes, northern aristocrats and southern gentry, and plain old-fashioned working people are all in Lucinderella, enlivened by the deliciously satirical eye of one of the South’s most extraordinary novelists.
