Summary

Billy Griffin is a failed local talk show host, sacked for declaring a false nuclear emergency, and forced to take up his old job at a local burger bar. 
After inheriting a shortwave set from his late Uncle Red, a piece of stolen technology lifted from the Philadelphia Experiment, he decides to start his own pirate radio station. 
Dead Talk Radio haunts the airwaves of Newtown for weeks with little fanfare. Until, during his very last show, God calls in to convince Billy he's suffered a major psychotic break. Insisting that he's spent weeks calling for an armed insurrection, and with the Feds hot on his tail, God offers Billy a quick way out. Seeing no other option, he follows God's instructions and repeats the simple mantra, 'I'm not here.' 
Billy finds himself lost in the seven circles of hell, slipping through one parallel dimension to another. In a case of mistaken identity, he's credited as the inventor of the world's first burger, and his new fast food chain takes the world by storm. His company expands into media and sets up an independent network. Within months, the constant rebukes by his mainstream competitors, elevates his news show to number one in the ratings. 
When Billy's invited to meet with the Alumniati, a secret cabal of the richest and most powerful leaders of the world, he finds they're more than ready to aid him in his mission, to start a global uprising and sweep the shadow elite from the face of the Earth. 
But why would the Alumniati seek their own destruction? What fate lies in wait for humanity? Only Billy, the star of his own news show, Infogod, can show the way. The reality behind all realities, the mother lode of truth for a fake news world.

    A romp with Max Thorton becomes more, but Kenna McIntyre's standing by her tried and true method of dating--she's moving on. Having successfully dodged Max's calls and crushed any remaining sparks, Kenna learns that one of their encounters has produced startling results--a pregnancy she didn't believe possible and activation of her fire witch powers. 
     
    Can she reconcile her past relationship failures with a future that includes Max--if only as the father of her child? And what about her knitting, crafting, home-body mom who turns out to be a bad-ass fire witch fighting for the good of humans everywhere? Can Kenna be a devoted mom, a crime-fighting daughter, and a newly awakened witch without losing her sanity? 
     
    With the help of friends Lizzie and Jack, her shockingly capable mom, and a feisty little magical book that refuses to be silenced, Kenna might just have a shot. 
     
    Witch's Diary is fourth in the Lost Library (Paranormal Urban Fantasy) series, but can be enjoyed as a standalone novel.

    For more than sixty years, the imagination of Ray Bradbury has opened doors into remarkable places, ushering us across unexplored territories of the heart and mind while leading us inexorably toward a profound understanding of ourselves and the universe we inhabit. In this landmark volume, America's preeminent storyteller offers us one hundred treasures from alifetime of words and ideas -- tales that amaze, enthrall, and horrify; breathtaking journeys backward and forward in time; classic stories with the undiminished power to tantalize, mystify, elate, and move the reader to tears. Each small gem in the master's collection remains as dazzling as when it first appeared in print. 
    There is magic in these pages: the wonders of interstellar flight, a conspiracy of insects, the early bloom of love in the warmth of August. Both the world of Ray Bradbury and its people are vivid and alive, as colorfully unique as a poker chip hand-painted by a brilliant artist or as warmly familiar as the well-used settings on a family's dining room table. In a poor man's desire for the stars, in the twisted night games of a hateful embalmer, in a magnificent fraud perpetrated to banish despair and repair a future, in a writer's wonderful death is the glowing proof of the timeless artistry of one of America's greatest living bards. 
    The one hundred stories in this volume were chosen by Bradbury himself, and span a career that blossomed in the pulp magazines of the early 1940s and continues to flourish in the new millennium. Here are representatives of the legendary author's finest works of short fiction, including many that have not been republished for decades, all forever fresh and vital, evocative and immensely entertaining. This is Bradbury at his very best -- golden visions of tomorrow, poetic memories of yesterday, dark nightmares and glorious dreams -- a grand celebration of humankind, God's intricate yet poignantly fallible machineries of joy.
