Attractive, sexy, and tough-minded, Cate Fante has just become a federal judge - though she isn’t quite sure she belongs. At only thirty-six, Cate feels as if she’s joining the world’s most exclusive retirement village. She’s intimidated by a job described in the Constitution of the United States. And she worries inwardly that she only looks the part; dark blonde hair in a chignon and a Chanel suit donned like overpriced armor. But Cate keeps all her doubts a secret. And, as it happens, much else. For Cate leads a dark, double life - one that she doesn’t even tell her best friend about - and it comes shockingly to light with a murder in a case before her. Overnight, her secrets are spilled all over the tabloids, her boyfriend dumps her, and her judgeship hangs in jeopardy. And when a killer comes after her, she runs for her life - embarking on a trip that ends in her own mysterious past.

A multi-textual memoir chronicling the life of one of our most potent pop iconsGroundbreaking rock musician. Award-winning actress. Perceptive songwriter and author. Mother. Wife of a rock god. Fashionista and trendsetter. Provocateur. In each and every one of these roles Courtney Love has demonstrated a wholehearted commitment to her art, and an intense drive and a lust for life that have made her a star and a celebrity icon—but have also led her into some unwise, uncharted, and even dangerous territory. Simultaneously candid and enigmatic, Love has a mordant wit and vivid intelligence matched in intensity only by the extraordinary life she has led, from a bleak early childhood through great fame and terrible heartbreak to the present day. By turns exhilarating and unsettling, this is a story told for the first time in Dirty Blonde. Composed of an astonishing and eclectic collection of deeply personal artifacts including personal letters, childhood records, poetry, diary entries, song lyrics, fanzines, show flyers, other original writings, and never-before-seen photographs, Dirty Blonde leads us through the unimaginable highs and the despairing lows of one of the most compelling and creative figures in the world of popular culture. Through these diaries we see Love’s accomplishments, her mistakes, her history, and her bright future in a whole new light. From her upbringing in Oregon through her years living in Japan, New Zealand, and London, from her career highs with Hole and as a Hollywood leading lady to her personal heartbreak and struggle, Dirty Blonde is Love laid bare—a wholly fascinating portrait of a fierce and insightful woman with an unblinking worldview and a determination to express herself no matter the cost.

Broadway Season 1999-2000 is a unique and detailed guide to the theatrical year presenting 46 different shows. The volume features a comprehensive discussion of every show that opened on Broadway during the 1999-2000 season as well as several non-Broadway productions of importance or general interest. Each entry is accompanied by credits and cast lists, scorecards summarizing overall critical reception for each show, and a recap of each show's financial performance. A new kind of theatre annual, this distinctive volume discusses what the shows are actually like (instead of merely relying on plot synopses or photographs). It is an interpretive record, featuring not only dates and names but also the stories behind the statistics. Opening night title pages illustrate each show discussion. Appendices include a roundup of the season's major awards, memorable performances of the year, obituaries, long run leaders, shows still running from prior seasons, scheduled shows that never reached Broadway, and a comprehensive index. Steven Suskin has provided a relevant and irreverent record of the year's memorable high points (and low points). Written from an insider's perspective, the book is knowledgeable, intriguing, provocative, and entertaining.

Art as Life - Life as Art The story of the vivid adventures of one driven to create, from formative and impressionable years forward. Of love and trust. Of life on the road and the many you meet there. Often scandalous and blunt, this is the unvarnished record of a Renaissance maven. Included within this autobiography of Ann Lyneah Curtis is tale the of a first grader selling her hand-drawn nudes for 10 cents to the kids at school. Fast forward to the 16 year old making the decision to pose naked for the life drawing class she was attending at the Unitarian Church. These choices ultimately fed the artist through her early years as she segued into the adventurous world of a traveling craftswoman. 1975, Mardi Gras: When the party on Canal Street ends, the revelers swarm the French Quarter. Having garnered hundreds of strands of colored plastic beads, our small Krewe now offered these to the crowds below my balcony on Royal Street. Figuring I might as well get them to entertain us, I made some signs. One of them said, "Show Your Tits". Turns out, this became a big hit! In the final stages of getting this book ready for print, information came to light regarding "Show Your Tits". In 1983 Professor Wesley Shrum began inquiring with French Quarter locals regarding this growing fad. As he states in his academic paper, "In the mid 1970s a new phenomenon began to occur in New Orleans' French Quarter during Mardi Gras. That phenomenon may be described simply as an exchange of beads for nudity." Professor Shrum tracked this event back to my balcony. The tales within this autobiography weave a rich tapestry of a life lived on the artist's own terms.

The plane from Paris slammed into the Atlantic and broke apart. Bill and Martin joined Claire in the tail section where the last raft was anchored to the door with a tether. Claire lugged her Gucci bags into the raft and Martin had his rollaboard clutched tightly in his arms. Bill fought to get the tether untied from the door, but the base of the door was under water. He had to go into the dark depths while thunder and lightning roared overhead. He pulled at the tether and got it untied. The raft shot up and slammed Bill’s head into the metal frame of the door; he felt the gash and shook his head. Adrift, Bill and Claire fought over why Martin was no longer with them. Bill told Claire that it was just the two of them now. Claire asked if that was a threat and Bill happily replied, yes. They found an island and ditched the raft on the beachhead. Claire’s mind was on two things, rescue and to do anything to get away from Bill. Bill’s head injury set his mind adrift in a sea of mystery about pirates and treasure. He looked at Claire and felt anger surge up his throat like lava rising to the top of a volcano where it would spew destruction. Bill and Claire had two different goals; one of them will get to their way at the expense of the other.

We map the universe with five senses Interpret reality with our mind We rely on this body What a poor vessel it is Jamie wants to be a halfskin. Her life has become dull and pointless. If she had more biomites—synthetic stem cells that promise hope—she could take control of her life. But Jamie’s body is already 49.9% biomites. The rest is clay—her God-given organic cells. Any more biomites and she becomes a halfskin. And halfskins are shutdown. But there is a way. Black market biomites, called nixes, can’t be detected by the government’s halfskin hunter, M0ther. Jamie would have to sacrifice her clay to get the nixes, but they would make her halfskin without anyone knowing. Including M0ther. But first she has to find them. Nix Richards can help. He’s the first halfskin to escape M0ther and Jamie has something he wants. He’ll need her to help him find a fabricator. He’ll betray anyone to get it, even those closest to him. This psychological thriller will keep Nix and Jamie second-guessing every move while they elude M0ther and Marcus Anderson, the man that wants to rid the world of biomites. But in the end, they’ll all discover just how deep the betrayal goes. INTERVIEW WITH THE AUTHOR WHAT GENRE DO YOU PREFER? Science fiction, dystopia, technothriller and, to some extent, young adult. I do have a series of novellas in the vampire genre. Yeah, I know. Doesn’t fit. That character, Drayton, came out of nowhere when I was at a community theatre production of Dracula. I figured that an immortal vampire would more likely become compassionate and wise as he grew older. The technothriller Halfskin is similar to vampires in that technology promises immortality and complete control of our bodies. But then what? WHY A SYNTHETIC STEM CELL? Organic life is too nilly-willy. We’re limited by our DNA. Give it to the scientists to perfect this vehicle that carries us around because it is a vehicle. If we no longer have organic bodies, if every one of our cells is replaced by something manmade all the way down to the neurons and synapses, then what are we? What if our world is just a computerized environment, ala The Matrix? Would we know the difference? Look, we’re printing organs today. I’m not, but someone is. Some genius has figured out how to push play and heart or liver or kidney comes down the chute. Halfskin takes the idea into the distant future and explores whether this leads to more happiness or just more of the same. Because more money, more problems. DO YOU HAVE ANOTHER JOB BESIDES AUTHOR? Day job, I’m a college horticulture teacher. Writing is a passion. No plans to change it. WHAT IS YOUR MOTTO? Breathe. WHAT TALENT WOULD YOU MOST LIKE TO HAVE? Omnipresent supergalactic oneness. IF WE HAD A CUSTOM THAT ALLOWED US TO EAT OUR CHILDREN, WHAT KIND OF SAUCE WOULD YOU USE? Ketchup, the miracle condiment. ARE OUR ELECTRONIC DEVICES STEALING OUR SOUL? AND IF SO, DO YOU MAKE OFFERINGS TO YOUR TOASTER? I offer white bread and the toaster gives back crunchy, brown bread. Never doubt a true miracle.

A forty-year-old actress tries to make a comeback—but death keeps getting in the way Diana Poole was the last of the starlets. A vibrant blonde with a quick wit and sharp intelligence, she was on her way to the top when Colin Hudson changed her mind about being famous. He was the finest screenwriter in Hollywood, and loved her well enough that she lost the acting bug forever. When he dies, he leaves Diana lonely, broke, and verging on middle age—a combination that’s difficult anywhere, but toxic in Hollywood. Thankfully, Diana still knows how to play the game. Working her old contacts and hustling for a job, she contends with crazy young ingenues, lecherous studio heads, and the cutthroat attention of her fellow fading beauties. But there’s an added twist: On and off the set, she can’t help stumbling over dead bodies. Tragedy follows Diana Poole, and in Hollywood, tragedy comes cheap.

A man without a little gamble in him isn’t worth a damn. That is why Turney Hall has decided to bare his soul -- and his scalp -- in An Eagle Soars: One Man’s Journey to Baldness in a heroic attempt to make the world a better place for bald men. An Eagle Soars is a hilarious account of Turney’s experience with and musings on male pattern baldness as he learns to accept his own hair loss. In An Eagle Soars, Turney searches for the meaning of male pattern baldness. He takes a trip to the public library for some insight on many of its aspects, such as scientific (how this genetic condition is a bigot that hates whites more than any other race), psychological (why young bald men may not have any hope with cheerleaders, but still have a shot with cougars), religious (how God thinks bald men are better than lepers, and won’t hesitate to unleash a sleuth of bears on anyone who dares taunt the bald), legal (how the amount of hair on your head could mean the difference between acquittal and a guilty verdict, and if your boss ever says to you, “Let’s take it outside, you bald pussy,” you better take it outside and show him who the real pussy is), and much more! While there is a stereotype that bald men are less likeable, successful, happy, and confident than their non-balding counterparts, that doesn’t mean they should just give up on life. Instead, An Eagle Soars exhorts those who are losing their hair to accept their destiny and do their damnedest to reverse the stereotypes that plague their kind. Of course, Turney encountered many bumps along the road to accepting his hair loss. In An Eagle Soars, you will find out how a shower, a car accident, and an ill-advised raise of his hand in journalism class opened his eyes to the world of baldness and made him wish he could jump out of the second story window without breaking an ankle or getting grass stains on his khakis; how he worked tirelessly to hide any signs of male pattern baldness by perfecting a hairstyle known as “the cascade effect;” how he imagines the baldness community is like La Cosa Nostra, and concludes that just because he liked to openly talk about baldness, didn’t mean other people did, and that he didn’t want to get whacked before he was officially recognized as a member; and, how he spent many years taking anxiety-filled trips to the pharmacy to pick up his prescription for Propecia, despite the questionability of the drug’s effectiveness and the resentment he had for the pharmacist as he stood a step above his customers like Wayne Newton performing Danke Schoen at the Borgata. But, Turney eventually decides to say goodbye to Propecia and hello to his fate. Besides, he’s a family man now, and his money is better spent on diapers and matching mink coats for his wife and him. In An Eagles Soars, Turney turns to conventional and unconventional sources alike for the strength and wisdom to overcome his fear of going bald. He invites Larry David and Andre Agassi to an imaginary dinner for some grilled cheese sandwiches, tequila, and a boost to his self-esteem; he dusts off his neglected Bible and finds that baldness is all right with God, and thus should be all right with him; he interrupts his bald father as he picks up some valuable cooking tips from Rachel Ray for a paternal perspective on how to make it in the world as a bald man; and he has a chance encounter with a bottle of Jim Beam and a fat lady. An Eagle Soars provides a unique blend of wit, quirkiness, and searching reflection in order to make light of and offer insight into a genetic phenomenon that affects over 35 million men in this country. Whether you are just starting to lose your hair, completely bald, somewhere in between, or not losing your hair at all, An Eagle Soars will help you realize that baldness isn’t the end of the world and make you laugh along the way. A page-turner and quick read, An Eagle Soars is the perfect complement to an evening of sipping cognac by the fireplace!
