Published only months after the disaster and sold as a “Memorial Edition,” this is one of the most sensationalistic early books about the sinking of the Titanic. It contains a multitude of survivor accounts, taken from newspaper stories, personal interviews, and reports of the Senate investigation. Much of the early reporting – for example, that the Titanic exploded and broke in two before she sank – is now known to be untrue, but the raw horror of the disaster remains in the rush and jumble of the survivors’ own words. There are also unique accounts not reported elsewhere, including a comparison to the cowardly behavior of passengers and crew during the Bourgogne disaster, a chapter on the gruesome task of the “funeral ship” Mackay-Bennett, and the initial story of Lady Duff-Gordon, who was later pilloried by the “yellow press.”

This biography recounts the extraordinary life of I. V. Gillis, both as an officer in the U.S. Navy from 1894 to 1919 and as a collector of rare Chinese books. China specialist Bruce Swanson captures the colorful, multi-faceted life of the man known as an innovative thinker, tactical practitioner, spy, and successful diplomat. Gillis, a second-generation Naval Academy graduate and the son of an admiral, was hailed a hero while serving aboard his first warship in the Spanish-American War and in 1907 became the first U. S. Naval Attaché to China. He remained in China until his death, marrying a Chinese princess, and collecting books now housed at Princeton University.

Seattle, an emerald city on the Sound, clean and beautifulexcept for people who abuse others in the markets and on the streets.

The S.P.D., swift and efficient, but can it do its job when a majority of the city doesnt want it done? An explosion? No, not a blast as from Semtex or nitroglycerine. Far worse, it is three old men, each nearing the end of his life, each no longer willing to compromise, banded together for the most bizarre vigilante activity the West has seen. They are the Society of the Slug, and they will disrupt an entire city. On the other hand, one might say that this is a love story.
