Summary

It's hard growing up in a long line of Evil Queens and Wicked Stepmothers in the Palace of Saints, the royal family of the Commonwealth of the Pink Sky. "Sweet" Blossom is a princess in waiting with big ideas on how to change the world, but she must contend with her scheming family, not to mention a sexual, cultural and social revolution happening all over Cadabra. A woman destined to inherit power has many friends, suitors and enemies hiding behind smiling faces.  She must choose her friends carefully. Prince Aaron is a nice guy and an old fashioned idealist who struggles with the new wave of feminism. Tom Callin is a foul-mouthed, two-faced opportunist who hides behind fake mouse ears and corporate promises. And then there is the Big Bad Wolf, a master of disguise and an actor with an incredible range of false emotion. Blossom can only choose one path on the road to Sainthood. Will she follow her morals, her ambitions, or her aching heart? This is Part 2 of The End of the Magical Kingdom.

    "An eccentric outsider is baffled by contemporary Manhattan in this engrossing second novel" by Adam Pelzman. —Kirkus Reviews
     
    Bobby Walser’s tragic childhood has left him a man frozen in time and mired in a world of his own making—one that has little in common with reality. Genteel and old-fashioned, his manners and habits are more suited to an aristocrat from a Chekhov play than to a young man on Manhattan’s Upper West Side.
     
    Haunted by his failure to live up to the legacy of his great father, Walser’s sense of ineffectuality is compounded when he suffers a series of deflating professional setbacks. He’s baffled by the people around him, and his only solace is the hope of a romance—conducted via handwritten letters—with a mysterious woman who may not even exist.
     
    As his despair with twenty-first century life reaches a breaking point, Walser bristles at a newly constructed sculpture that represents everything he loathes about these times. Realizing that he has more to care about—and fight for—outside himself, he marches toward a final showdown with this towering symbol of oppressive technology.
     
    "This is another entrancing, deeply memorable offering from Pelzman … Devilishly sharp social commentary." —Kirkus Reviews

    At the start of The Translator's Bride, the Translator's bride has left him. But if he can only find a way to buy a small house, maybe he can win her back . . . These are the obsessive thoughts that pervade the Translator's mind as he walks around an unnamed city in 1920, trying to figure out how to put his life back together. His employers aren’t paying him, he’s trying to survive a woman’s unwanted advances, and he’s trying to make the best of his desperate living conditions. All while he struggles with his own mind and angry and psychotic ideas, filled with longing and melancholy. Darkly funny, filled with acidic observations and told with a frenetic pace, The Translator’s Bride is an incredible ride—whether you’re a translator or not!

    Overweight? Out of shape? Try Swell-Wimpa revolutionary new program of sexual exercises designed to help you reduce and control your weight. No expensive equipment required. No strict diet. Swell-Wimp is simple, its natural and its fun! Sounds plausible, doesnt it? Every form of exercise "burns" calories, so engaging in sexual exercise should work as well as any other type. Swell-Wimp is a humorous parody of exercise, diet and self-help books. With Swell-Wimp you maximize energy expenditure during sexual activity. How? Burn more calories during sex by vocalizing (sing, laugh, yell), exercising (sexual sit-ups, push-ups and dancing) and wearing more "clothes" (coats, weight belts, heavy shoes). Absurd? No, its all very logical.

    A deep dive into danger . . .  
    Ava was born to lead. The oldest of the three royal daughters from Sirenia, she's been by Mother's side from the moment she first learned to swim. Her inevitable legacy notwithstanding, she is resentful of the adventures her sisters Zoe and Kyra have had while she's been in charge. But when Mother goes missing Ava's world teeters on the brink of change. If Mother returns, Ava's life in the shadows will continue. If Mother is gone forever, Ava's new responsibilities may overwhelm her. 
    What happens when an unexpected threat disrupts your underwater village?  
    If you're the next-mermaid-in-line, you might have to assume control. 
    Ostracized by the other mermaids, she focuses on learning the truth—even if it means confronting the lies she's learned to believe. Was this a coup, or did mother have enemies? Ava is used to the politics of Sirenia, but what happens when those who may have taken  her mother are the ones she was taught to trust? Can she become what she doesn't know she wants in order to protect what the other mermaids need? 
    You'll love swimming in the virtual world of Sirenia, because mermaid mysteries are fun in the sun . . . under water.
