New York U. S. A.: DAW Books. As New 2000. Paperback. Marfree later prtg, tiny spine lines not marked-in, underscored, clearance or discard. Mails from NYC usually within 12 hours. ; 6.8 x 4.2 x 1.4 inches; 471 pages; \nOnline Rev: This fat fantasy is the author's first published novel. Although the typical back cover quotes from Anne McCaffrey and Marion Zimmer Bradley overpraise it somewhat--"stunning, " "terrific, " "classic"--it's a good, highly readable debut. Kristen Britain tells her story at a headlong pace and with considerable charm. Young heroine Karigan hardly has time to regret being expelled from school (for dueling) before finding herself committed to the desperate errand of a murdered Green Rider. The Riders are an elite messenger corps using both horses and magic; the message is a terrible warning. Bad things from bad places are invading this fantasyland, their presence being only part of a devious, sorcery-aided human struggle for the throne. Karigan's wild ride is beset by a variety of enemies, but aided by her own developing talents plus certain strange allies. These include the tormented ghost of the dead Green Rider himself--still pierced by and trying to resist the chief villain's black arrows that ensnare the soul. Delivering the message to a suspicious court is only half Karigan's job: can it be interpreted in time? The pages turn fast, the heroine is likeable and the villains hissable, and all ends as it should. Nice one. --David Langford, Amazon. Co. Uk --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title. From Publishers Weekly Britain's first novel is a classic quest tale set in a standardized medieval fantasy world. It begins when protagonist Karigan G'ladheon is expelled from an exclusive school. In a forest on the way home, she encounters one of the magically bound Green Riders, who carries a vital message for King Zachary. The messenger is dying with assassins' arrows in his back, so with more loyalty than caution, Karigan takes over his magic brooch. This also means taking over his mission and becoming a Green Rider herself, an act that flings Karigan into a cesspool of intrigues both magical and mundane, some of them well-handled by the author, some not. Karigan is an engaging protagonist, although the feisty female is now a penny a cartload in high fantasy, and some of the scenes of magic and/or combat rise to a high standard. Britain also makes notable use of class distinctions as motivators, a tact not often seen in fantasy. But, overall, her plot lacks originality; most of her characters (other than Karigan) are, at best, archetypes; and her pacing may be sufficiently uneven to deter readers from coping with the book's standard plot and considerable length. This is a respectable, not outstanding, debut, although Britain shows enough talent to warrant a follow-up.

A circle of friends gathers once a month at a Ladies' Lunch: Carol Lundeen-the brash Congresswoman, brilliant on the job, but negligent at home ... Sara Marino-the Supreme Court nominee with powerful allies and equally commanding enemies ... Maggie Stedman-the journalist forced to choose between her paycheck and her conscience ... Leona Maccoby-the unhappily-wed socialite with a taste for liquor ... and Faith Paige-the beautiful White House Press Secretary whose wit and charisma hold them all together.

Now the remaining four have come together to mourn, to ask questions and ultimately to launch an investigation that will change their lives forever.

Through the eyes of Christopher Reich, dive into the corrupt world of international high finance. In his debut novel, Reich offers a realistic and gritty "day-in-the-life" perspective on working in the world's financial mecca. For Nick Neumann, an ex-marine turned Harvard MBA with a gorgeous fiancée and an elite position at Morgan Stanley, life is good--until his mother's untimely death opens old wounds and rehashes questions regarding his father's unsolved murder. Nick wants the truth and is willing to sacrifice his career, love, and future for a crack at untangling the mystery surrounding his father's death. To do this, he takes a job at the prestigious United Swiss Bank, the venerable financial cornerstone of Geneva and his father's former employer. Before he can begin his investigation, however, disturbing events come into play: One portfolio manager is dead, another had a "nervous breakdown," and his training manager is jumping ship to cast accounts with their staunch enemy. All of the managers have one thing in common: they each oversaw a multimillion-dollar numbered account owned by the mysterious Pasha. If that isn't enough, the DEA steps in and orders Nick to serve up Pasha on a silver platter. Being the embodiment of American ideals, Nick takes matters into his own hands and is caught in a ruthless conspiracy that stretches around the world and into his personal life.

Annotation: The debut novel by a Southern author is written with a wry, sweetly comic voice and a perceptive eye for looking at where the Old South meets the New. "Our newest comic genius . . . the funniest novel about the South since A Confederacy of Dunces."--Lexington Herald-Leader. Publishers Weekly: Set in Birmingham, Ala., this classic coming-of-age first novel provides an engaging hero and vibrant images of Southern life, the newspaper business and the emotional aches and pains of growing up. Beauregard Forrest, whose mother died shortly after his birth, has been a faithful son to his wealthy and quirky father, joining him in Civil War reenactments and brewing their morning coffee, and an amenable brother to Jackson, a former Crimson Tide football player. Beauregard is a cub reporter at the Birmingham Standard-Dispatch , a job his father arranged for him in order to raise his verbal SAT scores and improve his chances of getting into Washington and Lee, the elite school for Southern gents-to-be. But Beauregard's stories--Pet of the Week and obituaries--have never been printed closer to the front page than section B, page four, hence his nickname. Hoping to win the respect of his fellow reporters and the love of lively student Lorena with a front-page scoop, B-Four investigates an anti-Atlanta campaign by the Birmingham Boosters. His resulting misadventures and triumphs soon set him on the path to self-discovery. Hodges's narrative is colorful and amusing--and something more: his tender regard for his characters makes them all ring true. . Trade Paperback.

Book Description: A new type of autocratic politician dominates the political landscape. With the deliberate appointment by the Prime Minister of an unsuitable candidate for the top job of C in MI6, trouble begins. The new man sweeps people out. Most of them die by 'accident' or 'suicide'. Sir Charles, a loyal subject and member of a family that has been part of the ruling elite for generations, knows he will be next. He and his colleagues from Australia, France, and the United States of America have to find out why they are being attacked. They must meet the challenge; failure will mean certain death. Caught up in the maelstrom facing the security services of the western world, the plans of a crook go drastically awry when one of his political contacts dies in a young man's bed. The international threads of business intertwine with the greed of politicians as a few loyal officers save the Service. Love blossoms between those caught up in the business, and in a small house outside Marrakesh, Katharine acts to lift the black pain inflicted upon her after the brutal death of her lover in 1973.

Synopsis In two-and-a-half astonishing years, professional golf was reborn. Formerly dismissed as an elite, white, middle-aged, rich man's game, golf has rocketed into the mainstream to become a multicultural, multibillion-dollar sport, with young, hotshot athletes to rival those in the NBA and demographics to win the hearts of networks and merchandisers everywhere. From the U.S. team's devastating loss at the 1997 Ryder Cup to their come-from-behind triumph at the 1999 Cup through the recordsetting summer of 2000, Steve Eubanks tells the story of the new boys, the bad boys, and the good old boys who changed the way America -- and the world -- think about golf. With detailed coverage of the rise of David Duval, Sergio Garcia, and, of course, Tiger Woods, as well as the backbiting and chaos at the British Open, the backstage power struggles at the PGA, and the tragic death of Payne Stewart, At the Turn is a must-read for any fan of the sport -- and any fan of sports in general. This is the true story of a game's seemingly miraculous transformation -- a no-holds-barred, reporter's-eye view of pro golf, written by a true insider who rivals John Feinstein at his best. Publishers Weekly While Tiger Woods may be the wunderkind of the professional golf world, there's plenty of drama in the PGA besides Woods's career. After the U.S. team suffered a devastating loss at the 1997 Ryder Cup, it came back to win the famous international tournament in 1999. That same year, beloved team member Payne Stewart died in a tragic plane accident. Squabbling over funding, advertising and rules continues to threaten the PGA. Eubanks, formerly with the PGA and author of Augusta: Home of the Masters, knows all the players and aptly describes the minute details of winning putts and behind-the-scenes politics. He writes with an eye for descriptive as well as narrative detail, with a directness that sometimes makes for humorous reading: he compares one player to "Gregory Peck in a royal-blue Disneyland shirt, ankle deep in a creekbed with his trousers pulled above his knees.... He was in no way embarrassed by the utterly farcical scene he was creating. If he could play the shot from the water and win the tournament, he would look like a hero." (May) Forecast: Golfers and ardent fans will enjoy this account of two years in the life of U.S. golf, but to many it will already seem obsolete. Players agonize over every shot, but readers may not want to relive the sport's past few years of minutiae. But Eubanks has done an admirable job with research and presentation, and his book will have great appeal for a specific audience. Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information. Biography Steve Eubanks is a former PGA golf professional, a contributing writer at Golf World magazine and CBS SportsLine, and a contributor to Golf Digest. He is the author of Augusta: Home of the Masters Tournament and coauthor of Laura Baugh's memoir, Out of the Rough. . First Edition. Hard Cover.

Some, like Breanna and Zen Stockard, to positions of power and influence; others, like Danny Freah and Nuri Lupo, into Whiplash, a cutting-edge combination of brain and brawn. Tasked by the President to handle the country's most deadly and sensitive jobs, the elite SpecWarfare unit marries muscle to technological prowess. But can even Whiplash stand up to a covert Russian army of genetically enhanced assassins known only as the Wolves? The stories about them sound like sheer fantasy: the killers are said to be nearly invisible and virtually unstoppable, endowed with super-human strength and endurance. But when Danny Freah and company discover they do exist, Danny stumbles on an even darker and deadlier secret: One Wolf, the most ferocious of all, comes from the heart of Dreamland itself. And Danny saw him die more than a decade before. ISBN 978-0-061-71301-9 08-07-16, Harper, 2010

New York, New York, U.S.A.: Pocket Books, 1993. First printing. Paperback. Very Good. A brilliant virtuoso of violence, Richard Marcinko rose through Navy ranks to create and command one of this country's most elite and classified counterterrorist units, SEAL TEAM SIX. Now this thirty-year veteran recounts the secret missions and Special Warfare madness of his worldwide military career - and the riveting truth about the top-secret Navy SEALs. Marcinko was almost inhumanly tough, and proved it on hair­raising missions across Vietnam and a war-torn world: blowing up supply junks, charging through minefields, jumping at 19,000 feet with a chute that wouldn't open, fighting hand-to-hand In a hellhole jungle. For the Pentagon, he organized the Navy's first counterterrorist unit: the legendary SEAL TEAM SIX, which went on classified missions from Central America to the Middle East, the North Sea, Africa and beyond. Then Marcinko was tapped to create Red Cell, a dirty-dozen team of the military's most accomplished and decorated counterterrorists. Their unbelievable job was to test the defenses of the Navy's most secure facilities and installations. The result was predictable all hell broke loose. Here is the hero who saw beyond the blood to ultimate justice­and the decorated warrior who became such a maverick that the Navy brass wanted his head on a pole, and for a time, got it.

Fine/Near-Fine. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall., Crown Pub, 2001, Simon & Schuster, 2009. Softcover. New. Growing up a privileged Manhattan kid, Jeff Nichols should have had it all. Instead, he got a plethora of impairments: learning disabilities, a speech impediment, dyslexia, ADD, and a mild case of Tourette's syndrome. In Trainwreck, his weird and witty memoir of utter dysfunction, Nichols gives an irreverent look at how one "idoit" made good. Bounced from elite private schools, he limps through college, earning the nickname "Iron Lung" for his ability to inhale from a four-foot bong without coughing. By the skin of his teeth, he graduates and lands a job on Wall Street...as a moving target for coked-up traders tossing order cards at his head. Bumming money from his parents to pay for drugs and prostitutes, Nichols hits bottom before he discovers Alcoholics Anonymous, the perfect place to develop material for his new career in stand-up. Several disastrous twists and turns later, he finally makes good when a crazy stroke of luck leads to his story being turned into a feature film. Oddly inspiring, Trainwreck is proof that a life disastrously lived can still turn out beyond anybody's wildest imaginings. This is a romp of a book, a rowdy ride...leavened with a dazzling comic energy. -- Frank McCourt, Pulitzer Prize-winning author of Angela's Ashes There's nothing worse than having a friend ask you to read her son's miserable memoir of wanton life abuse. I intended to read three pages and lie and cheat pretending I had read the clueless work. Instead, I read Trainwreck in one sitting. I didn't do any work all day long. It's that good. Don't buy this book or your day too will be ruined. -- Laurence Leamer, author of Madness Under the Royal Palms How an idiot like Jeff wrote such a wonderful book is mind-boggling. Trainwreck is raw and funny and brutally honest...I highly recommend reading it. -- John Viener, comedian, writer, and voice actor, Simon & Schuster, 2009, Puffin Books, 2011. Softcover. New.

Although the typical back cover quotes from Anne McCaffrey and Marion Zimmer Bradley overpraise it somewhat--"stunning, " "terrific, " "classic"--it's a good, highly readable debut. Kristen Britain tells her story at a headlong pace and with considerable charm. Young heroine Karigan hardly has time to regret being expelled from school (for dueling) before finding herself committed to the desperate errand of a murdered Green Rider. The Riders are an elite messenger corps using both horses and magic; the message is a terrible warning. Bad things from bad places are invading this fantasyland, their presence being only part of a devious, sorcery-aided human struggle for the throne. Karigan's wild ride is beset by a variety of enemies, but aided by her own developing talents plus certain strange allies. These include the tormented ghost of the dead Green Rider himself--still pierced by and trying to resist the chief villain's black arrows that ensnare the soul. Delivering the message to a suspicious court is only half Karigan's job: can it be interpreted in time? The pages turn fast, the heroine is likeable and the villains hissable, and all ends as it should. Nice one. --David Langford, Amazon. Co. Uk --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title. From Publishers Weekly Britain's first novel is a classic quest tale set in a standardized medieval fantasy world. It begins when protagonist Karigan G'ladheon is expelled from an exclusive school. In a forest on the way home, she encounters one of the magically bound Green Riders, who carries a vital message for King Zachary. The messenger is dying with assassins' arrows in his back, so with more loyalty than caution, Karigan takes over his magic brooch. This also means taking over his mission and becoming a Green Rider herself, an act that flings Karigan into a cesspool of intrigues both magical and mundane, some of them well-handled by the author, some not. Karigan is an engaging protagonist, although the feisty female is now a penny a cartload in high fantasy, and some of the scenes of magic and/or combat rise to a high standard. Britain also makes notable use of class distinctions as motivators, a tact not often seen in fantasy. But, overall, her plot lacks originality; most of her characters (other than Karigan) are, at best, archetypes; and her pacing may be sufficiently uneven to deter readers from coping with the book's standard plot and considerable length. This is a respectable, not outstanding, debut, although Britain shows enough talent to warrant a follow-up.

Book Description: A new type of autocratic politician dominates the political landscape. With the deliberate appointment by the Prime Minister of an unsuitable candidate for the top job of C in MI6, trouble begins. The new man sweeps people out. Most of them die by 'accident' or 'suicide'. Sir Charles, a loyal subject and member of a family that has been part of the ruling elite for generations, knows he will be next. He and his colleagues from Australia, France, and the United States of America have to find out why they are being attacked. They must meet the challenge; failure will mean certain death. Caught up in the maelstrom facing the security services of the western world, the plans of a crook go drastically awry when one of his political contacts dies in a young man's bed. The international threads of business intertwine with the greed of politicians as a few loyal officers save the Service. Love blossoms between those caught up in the business, and in a small house outside Marrakesh, Katharine acts to lift the black pain inflicted upon her after the brutal death of her lover in 1973.

A circle of friends gathers once a month at a Ladies' Lunch: Carol Lundeen-the brash Congresswoman, brilliant on the job, but negligent at home ... Sara Marino-the Supreme Court nominee with powerful allies and equally commanding enemies ... Maggie Stedman-the journalist forced to choose between her paycheck and her conscience ... Leona Maccoby-the unhappily-wed socialite with a taste for liquor ... and Faith Paige-the beautiful White House Press Secretary whose wit and charisma hold them all together. They are the cream of the Washington elite- admired, envied, secure-until one of them dies a violent, mysterious death. Now the remaining four have come together to mourn, to ask questions and ultimately to launch an investigation that will change their lives forever.

NO writing or tears inside book. Tight spine, bright pages. 278 pages. Synopsis In two-and-a-half astonishing years, professional golf was reborn. Formerly dismissed as an elite, white, middle-aged, rich man's game, golf has rocketed into the mainstream to become a multicultural, multibillion-dollar sport, with young, hotshot athletes to rival those in the NBA and demographics to win the hearts of networks and merchandisers everywhere. From the U.S. team's devastating loss at the 1997 Ryder Cup to their come-from-behind triumph at the 1999 Cup through the recordsetting summer of 2000, Steve Eubanks tells the story of the new boys, the bad boys, and the good old boys who changed the way America -- and the world -- think about golf. With detailed coverage of the rise of David Duval, Sergio Garcia, and, of course, Tiger Woods, as well as the backbiting and chaos at the British Open, the backstage power struggles at the PGA, and the tragic death of Payne Stewart, At the Turn is a must-read for any fan of the sport -- and any fan of sports in general. This is the true story of a game's seemingly miraculous transformation -- a no-holds-barred, reporter's-eye view of pro golf, written by a true insider who rivals John Feinstein at his best. Publishers Weekly While Tiger Woods may be the wunderkind of the professional golf world, there's plenty of drama in the PGA besides Woods's career. After the U.S. team suffered a devastating loss at the 1997 Ryder Cup, it came back to win the famous international tournament in 1999. That same year, beloved team member Payne Stewart died in a tragic plane accident. Squabbling over funding, advertising and rules continues to threaten the PGA. Eubanks, formerly with the PGA and author of Augusta: Home of the Masters, knows all the players and aptly describes the minute details of winning putts and behind-the-scenes politics. He writes with an eye for descriptive as well as narrative detail, with a directness that sometimes makes for humorous reading: he compares one player to "Gregory Peck in a royal-blue Disneyland shirt, ankle deep in a creekbed with his trousers pulled above his knees.... He was in no way embarrassed by the utterly farcical scene he was creating. If he could play the shot from the water and win the tournament, he would look like a hero." (May) Forecast: Golfers and ardent fans will enjoy this account of two years in the life of U.S. golf, but to many it will already seem obsolete. Players agonize over every shot, but readers may not want to relive the sport's past few years of minutiae. But Eubanks has done an admirable job with research and presentation, and his book will have great appeal for a specific audience. Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information. Biography Steve Eubanks is a former PGA golf professional, a contributing writer at Golf World magazine and CBS SportsLine, and a contributor to Golf Digest. He is the author of Augusta: Home of the Masters Tournament and coauthor of Laura Baugh's memoir, Out of the Rough. . First Edition. Hard Cover. Fine/Near-Fine. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall., Crown Pub, 2001, Harper, 2010. Stated First printing. Mass Market Paper. Very Good. The warriors of Dreamland have moved on. Some, like Breanna and Zen Stockard, to positions of power and influence; others, like Danny Freah and Nuri Lupo, into Whiplash, a cutting-edge combination of brain and brawn. Tasked by the President to handle the country's most deadly and sensitive jobs, the elite SpecWarfare unit marries muscle to technological prowess. But can even Whiplash stand up to a covert Russian army of genetically enhanced assassins known only as the Wolves? The stories about them sound like sheer fantasy: the killers are said to be nearly invisible and virtually unstoppable, endowed with super-human strength and endurance. But when Danny Freah and company discover they do exist, Danny stumbles on an even darker and deadlier secret: One Wolf, the most ferocious of all, comes from the heart of Dreamland itself. And Danny saw him die more than a decade before. ISBN 978-0-061-71301-9 08-07-16, Harper, 2010
