Summary

In the galaxy of Stratus Cloud, commerce and advertising rule every aspect of life—up to and including Intergalactic Protection, the galaxy’s foremost source of military might and occasional law enforcement. Military uniforms and weaponry all bow to the whims of corporate sponsors. For five days only! Fifty percent off space cruisers! Buy two and get a free blaster for the kiddies! 
 
But beneath this money-grubbing surface lurks another faction equally obsessed with profit. Only infighting prevents these underworld criminal organizations from controlling the galaxy. It’s a delicate balance with which no one is crazy enough to mess. 
 
No one, that is, except for Master Asinine, whose name sums up his personality. He’s decided Stratus Cloud needs to remember his golden rule: whoever has the planet-destroying laser wins. And, as luck would have it, Asinine just happens to have a planet-destroying laser. Go figure. 
 
Standing against Asinine is his one-time friend, Matross Legion, a green-skinned Trioxidillian. Together with a small group of hyperpeople—people with unusual abilities—Legion will take the battle to Asinine or die trying. Which is fine by Asinine. He’s looking for a fight

    Peg Savage has contractually agreed to move to Key West, Florida. The smudged signatures on the damp cocktail napkin are irrefutable proof.
     
    “An adventure…” her husband Clark says. 
     
    Peg can’t swim; she’s afraid of bridges (there are 42 of them); and she doesn’t want to leave her friends. However, after a bottle of Cabernet, a move from Chicago to the southernmost city in the United States seems like the best decision ever.
     
    But now Clark has taken a long term job in Cuba and she’s on her own.
     
    Neither her dog Nipper, nor the ghosts in the attic, offer up any good advice. But how hard can it be living in paradise? 
     
    Peg dives into island life but the more effort she makes, the wider her wake of catastrophes. She is tortured by a paddle board, a giant poisonous toad, the local Conservation group, and the patron saint of hurricanes. Not to mention the persistent sweat rash under her left breast.
     
    A tropical depression descends on the island – one that can’t be cured with medication. Peg must gather her strength if she has any hope of surviving the storm.

    How to be cool when you're afraid you've forgotten how . . .  
    Sure, you can try to stay younger by exercising, coloring your hair, and wearing stylish clothes—but how do you respond when someone asks, "Do you Twitter?" How Not to Act Old gives you simple ways to come back from over the hill and to act as young as you look. 
    Covering everything from old-people entertainment (cancel that dinner party!) to old-people communication (it's called a "voice mail," not a "message," and no one leaves or listens to them anyway), Pamela Redmond Satran decodes the behaviors, viewpoints, and cultural touchstones that separate you from the hip young person you wish you still were. This irreverent guide is essential for anyone who doesn't want to embarrass their kids—or themselves.

    A “suspenseful . . . welcome debut” mystery set in New Orleans (The Washington Post Book World).   When a disturbing series of murder-suicides terrorizes the Big Easy, young NOPD criminal psychologist Kit Franklyn is eager to take the case and prove her mettle. She discovers some bizarre connections between the perpetrators: They all share the same blood type, drive old cars, and reportedly hummed a nursery rhyme before committing their grisly acts.   As she uncovers the scope of the crimes, Franklyn turns to Andy Broussard, the chief medical examiner whose love of the truth is matched only by his love of New Orleans cuisine. Together, they follow a dangerous trail that leads into the Crescent City’s dark past, and an old Cajun curse that seems to have returned with a vengeance. Now Broussard and Franklyn need to fight off some very bad juju, or their partnership may end before it begins.   This first mystery featuring Broussard and Franklyn is a “fast-paced thriller” that “won’t be easily put down” (The Commercial Appeal, Memphis).

At home, the Gilbreths themselves have cranked out twelve kids, and Dad is out to prove that efficiency principles can apply to family as well as the workplace—with riotous results.   “A touching family portrait that also happens to be very, very funny.” —Jonathan Yardley, The Washington Post  Belles on Their Toes: With twelve kids, life at the Gilbreth house has always been a big project.

As their resourceful mother works to keep the family business running, the kids tackle the adventures of raising themselves and running a household.   With the irrepressible blend of humor and good cheer characteristic of one of the most beloved families in America, the Gilbreths rise to every occasion and find a way to keep it all together. Belles on Their Toes was also made into a movie with Myrna Loy and Jeanne Crain reprising their roles.   “There is a sincere and heartwarming atmosphere in this second volume that makes it almost better reading, if possible, than the first.” —Library Journal
