All he had to do now was earn the money. [ . . . ] When Ms. Strickland answered the door she looked at the stoop and noticed that it had been shoveled.

The Monkey Soldiers : Jim Traylor

The Monkey Soldiers

The Monkey Soldiers Bloody war, erotic sex, stoned out drugs, delicious decadence, exotic locations, heart pounding action. This story brings together a menagerie of humans and primates who find themselves in a world of heroic action, comic absurdity, tearful sorrow and boorish behavior. Wartime love stories and erotic, tropical rhondavous counterbalance the hedonism and decadence served up by the biggest and hottest R&R bar in Bangkok Thailand: The FTA Club.

A Change of Needs : Nate Allen

A Change of Needs

A Change of Needs An affair, it was never about “romance,” only lust… But lust became love, love begot jealousy, obsession, betrayal and ultimately self redemption …sorta? And if love is a drug …affairs are its “crack.” “A Change of Needs” is the story of one man’s crooked path through life that leads him to a married woman’s doorstep and the “straight and narrow” path she has taken that leads her to inviting him inside. What follows is a unique, atypical, often uncomfortable modern-day love story about what happens when one ordinary man accepts the invitation to cross that imaginary boundary each of us draws around our life that defines us. Jake Arnett was a rogue, solitary man with an

Warpaint : Stephanie A. Smith

Warpaint

Warpaint A haunting tale of friendship and rivalry between three women artists, who’ve known each other for years, who must come to terms with imminent mortality and artistic frustration: Liz Moore, born poor in Minnesota, fought her way to New York in the 1920s, but isn’t “discovered” until late in life; C.C. Davis, a well-to-do New Yorker is Moore’s only student, and rival, who, just after WWII achieves some small success, but feels, as she faces cancer in 2002, a failure; and Quiola Kerr, part Ojibwe, once C.C.’s lover, who is caught in the middle, and who, as a painter in the 21st century, has the most doubts about art’s value in an electronic world. In April 2002, all three

Murder Made in Italy : Ellen Nerenberg

Murder Made in Italy

Murder Made in Italy – Homicide, Media, and Contemporary Italian Culture Looking at media coverage of three very prominent murder cases, Murder Made in Italy explores the cultural issues raised by the murders and how they reflect developments in Italian civil society over the past 20 years. Providing detailed descriptions of each murder, investigation, and court case, Ellen Nerenberg addresses the perception of lawlessness in Italy, the country’s geography of crime, and the generalized fear for public safety among the Italian population. Nerenberg examines the fictional and nonfictional representations of these crimes through the lenses of moral panic, media spectacle, true crime writing, and the abject body. The worldwide publicity given the recent case of Amanda Knox, the American student
