Born into slavery, Bass Reeves became the most successful US Marshal of the Wild West. Many "heroic lawmen" of the Wild West, familiar to us through television and film, were actually violent scoundrels and outlaws themselves. But of all the sheriffs of the frontier, one man stands out as a true hero: Bass Reeves. He was the most successful Federal Marshal in the US in his day. True to the mythical code of the West, he never drew his gun first. He brought hundreds of fugitives to justice, was shot at countless times, and never hit. Bass Reeves was a black man, born into slavery. And though the laws of his country enslaved him and his mother, when he became a free man he served the law, with such courage and honor that he became a legend.

Let me take you back to the earliest childhood memory that I have of my father. Growing up in the province of Pampanga, just outside of the city of Porac, we didnt have a lot of money. We lived in a small village just south of the province in a small hut. Like many families back then, we made do with what we had and struggled just to get by like everyone else at that time. My father was in the Philippine Army, and he would be gone for weeks at a time, sometimes months at a time. But I always knew when he returned home because I would awake to a bunch of grapes on my pillow. I would smile as I awoke and whisper, Daddys home.

When a troubled children’s book author moves to their farm, two kids with troubles of their own hatch a scheme to swipe the ending of the final book in a bestselling series to get a reward from the book’s publisher in this gorgeously written novel in the tradition of Wonder and Out of My Mind. Twelve-year-old Sara and her brother Hawk are told that they are not to bother the man—The Mister—who just moved into the silo apartment on their farm. It doesn’t matter that they know nothing about him and they think they ought to know something. It doesn’t matter that he’s always riding that unicycle around. Mama told them no way, no how are they to bother The Mister unless they want to be in a mess of trouble. Trouble is the last thing Sara and her brother need. Sara’s got a condition, you see. Marfan syndrome. And that Marfan syndrome is causing her heart to have problems, the kind of problems that require surgery. But the family already has problems: The drought has dried up their crops and their funds, which means they can’t afford any more problems, let alone a surgery to fix those problems. Sara can feel the weight of her family’s worry, and the weight of her time running out, but what can a pair of kids do? Well, it all starts with…bothering The Mister.

When journalist and author Alison Stewart was confronted with emptying her late parents' overloaded basement, a job that dragged on for months, it got her thinking: How did it come to this? Why do smart, successful people hold on to old Christmas bows, chipped knick-knacks, and books they will likely never reread? Junk details Stewart's three-year investigation into America's stuff. Stewart rides along with junk removal teams like Trash Daddy, Annie Haul, and Junk Vets. She goes backstage at Antiques Roadshow, and learns what makes for compelling junk-based television with the executive producer of Pawn Stars. And she even investigates the growing problem of space junk—23,000 pieces of manmade debris orbiting the planet at 17,500 mph, threatening both satellites and human space exploration. But it's not all dire. Readers will also learn that there are creative solutions to America's crushing consumer culture. The author visits with Deron Beal, founder of FreeCyle, an online community of people who would rather give away than throw away their no-longer-needed possessions. She spends a day at a Repair Café, where volunteer tinkerers bring new life to broken appliances, toys, and just about anything. Junk is a delightful journey through 250-mile-long yard sales, resale shops, and packrat dens, both human and rodent, that for most readers will look surprisingly familiar.

SHORTLISTED FOR THE WILLIAM HILL SPORTS BOOK OF THE YEAR. SUNDAY TIMES SPORT BOOK OF THE YEAR. From its late-Victorian flowering in the mill towns of the northwest of England, football spread around the world with great speed. It was helped on its way by a series of missionaries who showed the rest of the planet the simple joys of the game. Even now, in many countries, the colloquial word for a football manager is not 'coach' or 'boss' but 'mister', as that is how the early teachers were known, because they had come from the home of the sport to help it develop in new territories. In Rory Smith's stunning new book Mister, he looks at the stories of these pioneers of the game, men who left this country to take football across the globe. Sometimes, they had been spurned in their own land, as coaching was often frowned upon in England in those days, when players were starved of the ball during the week to make them hungry for it on matchday. So it was that the inspirations behind the 'Mighty Magyars' of the 1950s, the Dutch of the 1970s or top clubs such as Barcelona came from these shores. England, without realising it, fired the very revolution that would remove its crown, changing football's history, thanks to a handful of men who sowed the seeds of the inversion of football's natural order. This is the story of the men who taught the world to play and shaped its destiny. This is the story of the Misters.

During its 33-season run, Mister Rogers' Neighborhood (1968-2001) left an indelible mark on millions of children and their caregivers. With television, Fred Rogers found the perfect medium for disseminating his prosocial messages to a mass audience of young people, helping them to better understand themselves and their world. Perhaps no series in the history of children's television has done more to develop the identity and ethics of the child. More than a decade after Rogers' death, he continues to attract an audience online. Yet despite the show's lasting impact it has been largely ignored by scholars. This collection of new essays focuses on Rogers' contribution to children's lives and media and to American culture. The contributors discuss his stance on the individual and the perception of self, his ideas about meaningful participation in a community and his use of television to accomplish his goals. At a time when the demands of a highly technological, media-dense world have diminished our capacity to listen carefully and to be present to others, Rogers' ideas still resonate.

Four Colorado writers produced this collection of three epic stories. They all had the great fortune to work closely with the late Nebula Award-winning author and Horror Grandmaster Edward Bryant. That felt much like serving under a compassionate Medieval Guild-master. They feel honored for the opportunity to learn as his apprentice writers and sorely miss their mentor and friend. All three stories are a fine mixture of storytelling that brings different types of speculative fiction together into one gigantic book. It will keep readers delighted for many hours of enjoyment.

... The year, for him, for Mister Broadway, was ending well: he was pronounced "A Person Of The Year" by The Times Square Bulletin (a Midtown Manhattan newspaper). Now the Person was concerned only with how not to get himself into another fine mess in the remaining two days of the year. But so far all went as it was supposed to; now Katya came to him. She is a young reporter with red-blue hair in worn-out jeans and colorful kerchief around her neck, petite, pretty, with great lakes of blue eyes, came to interview the Person of the Year. His features he received from the old tailor from Seventh Avenue (meaning the bronze statute of Garment Worker on 7th Avenue and 40th street). One day the old man was completing yet another job for the Metropolitan Opera: a costume of a king and a costume of a jester for a Shakespearian production. He finished the job but there were scraps, pieces and accessories left. For some reason amongst all of that luxury the three buttons catch the eye. One of the buttons is a large red one, the other two are emerald. Here he noticed the playful touchy being, which had that huge red button in place of its ears. Although it is one, it could turn and, who knows, it could make wishes come true. Spin it, make a wish and here, get your secret wish. The button was becoming bigger than the year-brain, it was becoming a Cosmic Mind. People become from dolls, and dolls from people looking at this wealth mumbled the old man . Thus, Mister Broadway became rainbow colored, a foot and change tall, with emerald eyes and one huge spinning year. ***** Mister Broadway was sitting in his tall chair cross-legged and deeply in his thoughts. "Well, if it's such a "military secret"..." it seemed that Katya was prepared to leave. "Oh, women, women!" the Mister Broadway sighed. "If there is a "military secret" - that's you!" and (what could he do?) he told her about the little adventure yesterday: how he tailed the Sorcerer, how the later sneaked into the dark abandoned house and how he, Mister Broadway, was stopped at the very door by the battered man. "How interesting!" Katya murmured. "Amazing..." her eyes wondered somewhere far away. "Just stepped inside and disappeared?.." "Yes..." "No lights; nothing?.." "Only outside..." "Will you show me the house?" she looked at him quickly. "What for?" "Well, I'm curious, you know..." "And you'll do a piece of reporting on it..." Mister Broadway said half-questioningly. "Of course!" she started. "No, I won't!" he cut off. "Why?!.." she was taken aback. "You have no reason to be there... especially on a New Year's Eve!" "But Mister Broadway, dear..." she turned on some foxy affection. "Maybe there is... a sensation! A mystery!" "Mystery?" "Yes! Mystery!" "Sensation?" "Sensation!" Katya's eyes fired up. "No, I won't!" But in a few minutes, with a slim "police" flashlight in his hand, grumpily mumbling under his breath, he lead her towards that house. The evening was cold, but the streets of Manhattan were awash with lights, smiles and music. The Times Square was filled with thousands, hundreds of thousands of people who were ready to stand there waiting for midnight when The Crystal Ball will descend at the famous 1475 Broadway... The streets on the West Side were not as peopled as in the center, lights became dimmer. But Mister Broadway was recognized and greeted everywhere as though he walked not on a city pavement but on a red carpet of some prestigious film festival. "It's here..." he stopped five yards away from the c
