The Trouble with Goats and Sheep

By Joanna Cannon

New York: Scribner, 2016. BY5 - A advance uncorrected proof paperback book in very good condition that has some bumped corners, light discoloration and shelf wear. Part coming-of-age story, part mystery, The Trouble with Goats and Sheep is a quirky and utterly charming debut about a community in need of absolution and two girls learning what it means to belong. 8.25"x5.5", 353 pages. Satisfaction Guaranteed. England, 1976. Mrs. Creasy is missing and the Avenue is alive with whispers. The neighbors blame her sudden disappearance on the heat wave, but ten-year-olds Grace and Tilly aren't convinced. As the summer shimmers endlessly on, the girls decide to take matters into their own hands. Inspired by the local vicar, they go looking for God - they believe that if they find Him they might also find Mrs. Creasy and bring her home. Spunky, spirited Grace and quiet, thoughtful Tilly go door to door in search of clues. The cul-de-sac starts to give up its secrets, and the amateur detectives uncover much more than ever imagined. As they try to make sense of what they've seen and heard, a complicated history of deception begins to emerge. Everyone on the Avenue has something to hide, a reason for not fitting in. In the suffocating heat of the summer, the ability to guard these differences becomes impossible. Along with the parched lawns and the melting pavement, the lives of all the neighbors begin to unravel. What the girls don't realize is that the lies told to conceal what happened one fateful day about a decade ago are the same ones Mrs. Creasy was beginning to peel back just before she disappeared.. Paperback. Very Good/No Jacket as Issued. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall. Advance Reading Copy (ARC).

When twenty-something Wall Street analyst Kate Wilson attracts the notice of the legendary Julian Laurence at a business meeting, no one's more surprised than she is. Julian's relentless energy and his extraordinary intellect electrify her, but she's baffled by his sudden interest. Why would this handsome British billionaire - Manhattan's most eligible bachelor - pursue a pretty but bookish young banker who hasn't had a boyfriend since college? The answer is beyond imagining... at least at first.

Now, in modern-day New York, Kate and Julian must protect themselves from the secrets of the past, and trust in a true love that transcends time and space.. First Edition. Hard Cover.

Henry is known as a "shortcut man," someone who believes that the shortest answer to many problems may not always be legal. As he cuts through the red tape for his clients, who range from an elderly woman ripped off by shady contractors to a landlord with a tenant many months behind on the rent, Henry always gets the job done, no matter what the cost. In Shortcut Man, Henry spends his days hunting down slimy con men and his nights seducing Lynette, an intoxicating, long-legged vixen. But when Henry gets an assignment from porn producer Artie Benjamin, his life suddenly becomes much more complicated. Now Henry must complete the job, avoid being killed, and somehow figure out what to do with Lynette. Filled with dark comedy, whip-smart writing, and a memorable cast of characters, Shortcut Man evokes Chandler and Hammett - hard-boiled crime at its best - and is an exciting beginning to a crackling new series..

Paramind

By Jim Willer

Toronto: McClelland and Stewart Limited, 1973. BI4 - A hardcover book in very good condition in good dust jacket that is mylar protected. Dust jacket has wrinkling, chipping, crease and small tears on the edges and corners, less than an inch tear on the back top right corner, less than an inch patch peeled on the lower spine, some scattered scratches, rubbing and stains, tanning and light shelf wear. Book has some bumped corners, light tanning and shelf wear. 8.75"x5.75", 206 pages. Satisfaction Guaranteed. The time is the future already too close at hand. And the crisis is Paramind, an electronic device so complex and sophisticated that beside it a computer is like an amoebla. Here, shockingly realized, is the world of the 21st century, in which machines have ceased to be a man's tools and have become, instead, man's rivals. It is a world whose frightening and alien scientific hierarchy is ruled by a pervasive "electric goverment" of mind-moulding, all-seeing machines-machines that tighten the hold on their creators, who seem to be powerless to stop them. More than anti-Utopian or science-fiction writing, this is a novel of portent, a challenging and compelling experiemental work of rare literary power. It goes beyond the limits of everyday speech to create its own rich language and to convey its dramatic vision of a future world. The seeds of such a wholly automated society already exist in our computerized age. And it is in the current of present-day technology and thought that Jim Willer reads the signs pointing to the Paramind world - a world that Orwell and Huxley were too far away from to see in such detail, but which Willer clearly defines, and warns us against, in this brilliant and chilling first novel.. Hard Cover. Very Good/Good. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall.

At the turn of the twenty-first century, the tornado was one of the last true mysteries of the modern world.

Researchers all but gave up, until the arrival of an outsider. In a field of PhDs, Tim Samaras didn't attend a day of college in his life. He chased storms with brilliant tools of his own invention and pushed closer to the tornado than anyone else ever dared. When he achieved what meteorologists had deemed impossible, it was as if he had snatched the fire of the gods. Yet even as he transformed the field, Samaras kept on pushing. As his ambitions grew, so did the risks. And when he finally met his match - in a faceoff against the largest tornado ever recorded - it upended everything he thought he knew. . Paperback.
