Summary

Wings of the WASP 
Desperate for pilots to fight overseas in World War 2, the Women Airforce Service Pilots (WASP) was formed and volunteered to take over domestic military flying duties. Not everyone was pleased to see women enter into this man’s world. 
In 1943 at a base near Tucson, Arizona, aircraft mechanic Sergeant Joe Clark was ordered to create an ‘incident’ to discredit a WASP. The minor incident went awry, killing the woman pilot, driving Joe to despair. Joe was transferred to a remote base in Alaska to keep him quiet for the duration of the war. 
Returning and meeting up with Dawn Dunham, a WASP he met in Marana, they decided to expose the campaign of sabotage. After perpetrators discovered their efforts, Dawn was murdered. The hunt was on for Joe. 
After forty years in hiding, eighty-year-old Joe returns to Tucson. The nightmares are back, and he confesses to another WASP, Sylvia James. They resolve to expose this plot and those responsible.

    Fatherhood is full of ups and downs, quirks and crises. But there is always humor to be found! Featuring 60 all-new cartoons from Andy Riley, Beer Makes Daddy Strong shows the world just how great dads can be: Daddy knows all the best car games ("Who can stay quiet the longest?"), likes to show off his scars (that he may or may not have obtained while running with the bulls in Spain), and is a great cook (when Spaghetti Bolognese is on the menu). Witty and wise, this affectionate tribute is a celebration of fatherhood and all of its joys, confusion, humor, and, of course, beer.

    A small town in the American Southwest ... everything in the desert is designed to prick you, wound you, or eat you. What better metaphor for 21st century Earth? Prickly City is a comic strip about the friendship between Winslow, a coyote pup, and Carmen, a straight and narrow kind of kid. Prickly City offers a conservative perspective on political and social events within an ongoing storyline. As Carmen might say, "We may not be correct but we will always be right." Their high jinks provide endless laughs as Winslow gets into trouble and Carmen follows. Join Carmen and Winslow for their adventures in the desert! In the e-book original The Big Book of Kevin: The Lost Bunny of the Apocalypse, Kevin, an ambitious politician, serves as the epitome of the craziness that has become our politics.
