A Red Soaked Morning - Joshua Lancellotti Summary

Sex, violence, daring secret missions, diplomatic back channel maneuvering, thrilling warship battles, intensely loyal friendships bound by blood, chivalrous love affairs, heart wrenching deaths, unimaginable bravery and soulless treachery! All swirled about the nascent United States Navy as she fought her way into existence just ten years after the Revolution. Although there were many larger and more powerful navies in 1794, none were manned by such a thorough cast of brave young gentlemen, eager and destined to travel the world, bringing glory and victory to both themselves and their nation. In their travels across many of the worlds oceans, they would learn and hone their battle skills, transforming their small squadrons of American fighting ships into unstoppable powerhouses. Time and time again, Americas enemies would change their minds by the mouths of their cannon! Just boys as the Navy is formed, they will grow to men at sea, stumbling into love, tests of their honor, new landscapes and thrilling adventures. Some will die, and others will form unbreakable lifelong friendships that will serve them well through three wars. As the navy is slated to do battle with African pirates a world away, Europes larger world war looms into view, ensnaring the men and the nation in a war that may be impossible to win! It will take all their courage, daring and skill with the sword to keep the navy from ceasing to exist, as Americas enemies surround her from all sides!

'Somewhere in Blood Soaked France' - Alasdair Sutherland Summary

From the heat and dust of the Dardanelles to the mud of the Western Front, Corporal Angus Mackay had one constant companion, his diary. He wrote of the battles and campaigns he fought in, names that would go down in history: Gallipoli, the Somme, Ypres and Arras. Serving in the the 1st/5th Battalion (Queens Edinburgh Rifles) Royal Scots and later the 88th Brigade Machine Gun Corps, he left a record of one man's extraordinary and tragic war. In Somewhere in Blood Soaked France, Alasdair Sutherland reveals this previously unpublished account of the First World War, complete with historical context, orders of battle and extracts from official war diaries. This rare source - it was an offence to keep a record in a case of capture - offers a stirring insight into the bravery of Mackay and his companions, who were not afraid to die for their country. 'If I go under it will be in a good cause, so roll on the adventure.'

Aleksandar Hemon grew up in a blissful Sarajevo, where his childhood was consumed by football, his adolescence by friends, movies and girls and where, as a young man, he poked at the pretensions of his beloved city with American music, bad poetry, and slightly better journalism. And then at twenty-seven Hemon flew to Chicago for a month-long visit.

Margaret Weis and co-author Robert Krammes bring the enthralling Dragon Brigade trilogy to a thrilling conclusion in The Seven Sigil, a sweeping novel of worldwide war and personal redemption. Five hundred years ago, a clan of rebels was banished to the bottom of the enchanted world of Aeronne; ever since, these Bottom Dwellers have sought revenge, and now they are waging all-out war on the rest of humanity.

The attack of their full contramagic power will create a magical armageddon. In an effort to prevent further death, Captain Stephano de Guichen leads the Dragon Brigade, taking the fight to the Bottom. But strength of arms alone will not be enough to conquer their foe. As the Bottom Dwellers' blood magic eats away at the world, those Above realize their only possible defense lies in the heretical secrets of contramagic. Loyal priests must decide whether to protect the Church, or risk its destruction in pursuit of the truth. Only the Dragon Brigade can prevent an endless dark age. Their epic battle will test the mettle of those thrown into the breach, and determine the fate of this magical world.

100 Neo-Futurist Plays - The Neo-Futurists Summary

This collection of 100 short (very short) plays from The Neo-Futurists’ acclaimed cult hit Too Much Light Makes the Baby Go Blind was originally published by Chicago Plays in 1993. The show presents 30 plays in 60 minutes, its ensemble of writer/performers generating between two and 12 new plays each week, as dictated by a roll of the dice. The material runs the gamut of style, tone, and topic: musical, confession, agit-prop, poetic gesture, physical comedy, puppet theater, audience interrogation, folk song, sex joke, and many more. The plays are funny, moving, challenging, powerful, and occasionally just plain weird. There is no fourth wall in Too Much Light Makes the Baby Go Blind — the show embraces the ideal that theater is created in the connection between audience and performer. Randomness, dynamism, speed, brevity, and planned obsolescence are celebrated and exploited to engage and refresh all participants. The plays stand as an entertaining document of the show's output, and they are ideal for scene study, auditions, and competitions.

White Line Fever - Lemmy Kilmister Summary

Lemmy’s name was synonymous with notorious excess. His blood would have killed another human being. This is the up-to-date story of the heaviest drinking, oversexed speedfreak in the music business who tragically passed away earlier this year. Lemmy had quickly outgrown his local bands in Wales, and tripped through his early career with the Rocking Vicars, backstage touring with Jimi Hendrix, and his time with Hawkwind. In 1975 he went on to create speedmetal and form the legendary band Motörhead. Motörhead stand firm as conquerors of the rock world, their history spanning an insurrectionary forty years. While the Motörhead line-up saw many changes, Lemmy was always the soul of the machine. In the words of drummer Mikkey Dee, ‘Lemmy was Motörhead.’ White Line Fever has been completely updated post Lemmy’s untimely death in 2016, and offers all Motörhead fans who loved his music a sometimes hilarious, often outrageous, highly entertaining ride with the frontman of (what was) the loudest rock band in history. A truly epic finale, and tribute, to Lemmy from those who loved him best.

The Last Stage Out - Bonnie Sprouse Summary

It was such a peaceful town, but she had heard of the land disputes out here, all the way back to Philly. She also knew something that they didnt. She knew the railroad was going to go through the town and that the railroad had men they were sending ahead to buy up the property needed for the railroad. These men, without the railroads consent, would act like settlers or ranchers out looking for property to buy without letting anyone know why. These men were ruthless persuaders. They made their offer only once and youd better take it. She came out here to help the ranchers and farmers. She also knew there was one big rancher out here who had a 20 or 30 thousand acre spread that stood to lose the most, if these men got to him first. She knew he wasnt about to agree; he didnt get all that land by being pushed around. She had to find him first and fast. She also had a feeling the storm didnt have anything to do with the fire last night. It was just a way to cover up what really happened. Only now she had to find a way to prove it.
