Description:
Wade Brackenbury wanted an adventure, and he got the journey of a lifetime. Along with a charismatic photographer named Pascal, Wade went seeking the Drung people, a dwindling minority in the vast empire of China, said to live in an obsure valley in Southern Tibet. No Westerner had been to the Drung valley in over a century. Yak Butter & Black Tea is a story of daring and adventure, offering a fascinating glimpse into a hidden corner of contemporary China. And it is the account of a young man, driven by a compulsion he doesn't understand, as he tests himself in this dangerous, exotic land. "A remarkable account of exploration and adventure in forbidden lands. Travel writing of the old school at its best."--Joe Simpson, author of Dark Shadows Falling and Touch of the Void.

Description:
'The Years,' during her lifetime Woolf's most popular novel, is one of the most powerful indictments of 'Victoranism' ever written. Its first part follows the fortunes of the Pargiters, a middle-class London family for 1880-1917. Colonel Abel Pargiter, hag-ridden by his invalid wife and fly-blown mistress, and all his children, fighting to escape a sysial system with a fixed pattern of repression.The second part finds the children grown up in the 1930's, ostensibly independent, but spiritually maimed by their upbringing...the Victorian patriarchy has died to leave its successors willing to re-make society, but drained of the power to formulate a new system.

Description:
Set in Vienna in the 1930's, this is a novel in 'five scenes' that captures the despair, poverty, enforced idleness, and crumbling moral values of those years just before the political catastrophes that lead to World War II. With an astute eye for irony and a sardonic humour, the author weaves together stories about the people of Yellow Street, the home of the leather-merchants in the Leopoldstadt district. Living cheek by jowl on the bustling thoroughfare, crabbed merchants, impoverished bourgeois, canny profiteers, and out-and-out criminals alike find no privacy respected and no secrets possible. The author's concern, however, is the victims - in the main seemingly helpless women and children, perhaps poor and exploited but grown streetwise and cagey, each protecting a core of integrity and dignity.

Description:
Just ask C Thomas Flood. Waking up after a fantastic night unlike anything he's ever experienced, he discovers that his girlfriend, Jody, is a vampire. And surprise! Now his is one,too. For some couples, the whole biting-and-blood thing would have been a deal breaker. But Tommy and Jody are in love, and they vow to work through their issues. But word has it that the vampire who initially nibbled on Jody wan't supposed to be recruiting. Even worse, Tommy's erstwhile turkey-bowling pals are out to get him, at the urging of a blue-dyed Las Vegas call girl named Blue. And that really sucks.
