Grumpy Grandpa

Jack has a grumpy grandpa, and he calls him that, even though he’s not supposed to. But it’s true. Grandpa is grumpy—and a little scary, too. He has hair where other people do not have hair, and his teeth don’t stay in his mouth. You’d have to be crazy to live with Grandpa . . . or as brave as a lion tamer, like Jack’s aunt and uncle. But the truth is, Grandpa didn’t always have hair and teeth in weird places. In fact, Grandpa wasn’t even always grumpy. A book that closes the generation gap one little bit, Grumpy Grandpa captures childhood and grandpa-hood with humor, hyperbole, and heart

Pamela

This is a book of extraordinary philosophical subtlety and clarity, one that manages to tell a beautiful story in spite of itself"—Publishers Weekly.

Pamela

Fiction. "While the new sentence—the prose wing of Language writing—strips narrative down to pointed sets of shifting referents, Lu, in her debut, knowingly resuscitates it, creating a precise and humorous elegy to the self, and to its self-subversions. This quasi-bildungsroman charts the emergence of an 'I' (not 'P' and not 'Pamela,' though the three characters do appear together) into a 20-something Bay Area, with memories of a suburban childhood close on her heels.... This is a book of extraordinary philosophical subtlety and clarity, one that manages to tell a beautiful story in spite of itself"—Publishers Weekly.

Tricked

Winner of the Harvey & Ignatz Awards for Best Graphic Novel. "Indie Book of the Year"-- Wizard Magazine "Most indie film should be this good."-- Entertainment Weekly "A master of the slice-of-life indie comic genre."-- Publishers Weekly "A drama and a thriller that plays to the real strength of the medium."-- Variety "Carefully and cleverly structured. ... Such an accomplishment is no easy trick."-- Time "If Brian Bendis is comics' David Mamet, and Grant Morrison its David Cronenberg, then Alex Robinson is its Robert Altman."-- Matt Singer, The Village Voice "Brilliant ... Robinson's work has the potential to appeal to comics fans who don't normally read "alternative"comics and to readers who normally avoid comics entirely. Highly recommended."-- Library Journal "I've read a lot of excellent graphic novels this year, but I haven't read a better one than Tricked. A wonderful piece of work about life and the mistakes we make and the demons that drive us."-- Heidi MacDonald, Comics Buyer's Guide Alex Robinson, "the master of true-to-life relationship drama"(Library Journal), has created another tour de force. Tricked follows the lives of six people -- a reclusive rock legend, a heartbroken waitress, a counterfeiter, an obsessive crank, a lost daughter, and a frustrated lover -- whose lives are unconnected until an act of violence brings them spiraling in on each other. Combining intriguing characters with a story structure that is both complex and innovative, Tricked is not to be missed. Now in an all-new hardcover edition with a brand new cover to boot!

What Belief Can Do

“Riveting.” -Publishers Weekly Ron Archer’s story will inspire you to trust God with the impediments facing you, whether big or small. Born to a biracial teenage mother forced by poverty to become a call girl, he survived an abortion his mother’s pimp forced her to have. Abused by some, bullied by others, and rejected by a stepfather, Ron was a stutterer, a bed-wetter, and an overweight kid who banged his head against the wall to knock himself to sleep at night. At age ten, he decided to take his own life. The gun did not fire. Afterward, a schoolteacher and a widowed neighbor stepped in and shared the love of God with him—forever changing his life. In this message-driven memoir, Archer shows readers how regardless of background and experiences, God can transform your pain into power and your misery into ministry. In What Belief Can Do, readers will discover: • Everything we go through in life is a down payment on our destiny. • We are conceived and born with a divine design. • Loving, caring people who mentor a child can change his or her life. • Sometimes our greatest blessings are contained in our greatest challenges.

The Iron Sea

This is the fast-paced story of the Allied bomber crews, brave sailors, and bold commandoes who "sunk the Bismarck" and won a hard-fought victory over Hitler's iron sea.

The Iron Sea

From Simon Read, author of stirring works of military history, the action-packed story of the Allies' brutal naval engagements and daring harbor raids to destroy the backbone of Hitler's surface fleet. The sea had become a mass grave by 1941 as Hitler's four capital warships-Scharnhorst, Gneisenau, Tirpitz, and Bismarck, the largest warship on the ocean-roamed the wind-swept waves between Great Britain and the United States, threatening the Allied war effort and sending thousands of men to the icy depths of the North Atlantic. Bristling with guns and steeled in heavy armor, these reapers of the waves could outrun and outgun any battleship in the Allied arsenal. The deadly menace kept Winston Churchill awake at night; he deemed them "targets of supreme consequence." The campaign against Hitler's warships would continue into the dying days of the World War II and involve everything from massive battleships engaged in bloody, fire-drenched battle to daring commando raids in German occupied harbors. This is the fast-paced story of the Allied bomber crews, brave sailors and bold commandoes who "sunk the Bismarck" and won a hard-fought victory over Hitler's iron sea. Using official war diaries, combat reports, eyewitness accounts and personal letters, Simon Read brings the action and adventure to vivid life. The result is an enthralling and gripping story of the Allied heroes who fought on a watery battlefield.

Summoned to Thirteenth Grave

It's lucky number thirteen . . . this is the epic finale for our favourite Grim Reaper and her sinfully sexy son-of-the-devil husband, Reyes. Charley Davidson, Grim Reaper extraordinaire, is pissed. She's been kicked off the earthly plane for eternity - which is exactly the amount of time it takes to make a person stark, raving mad. But someone's looking out for her, and she's allowed to return after a mere hundred years in exile. Is it too much to hope for that not much has changed? Apparently it is. Bummer. She's missed her daughter. She's missed Reyes. She's missed Cookie and Garrett and Uncle Bob. But now that she's back on earth, it's time to put to rest burning questions that need answers. What happened to her mother? How did she really die? Who killed her? And are cupcakes or coffee the best medicine for a broken heart? It all comes to a head in an epic showdown between good and evil in this final smart and hilarious novel. It's Charley's last adventure, and the one thing we know for sure is that it's going to be one wild ride . . . 'An absolute must read' J.R. Ward, No.1 New York Times bestselling author of the Black Dagger Brotherhood series.
