"What are you Whites doing out here?" "We came out to see you beaten." "You did? Then we would advise you to pull ashore immediately, for that is something you will not see... More > this day." "Won't we, indeed? You'll soon tell a different tale. In less than an hour you will pull off those blue rosettes and throw them overboard." "On the contrary, in less than an hour the boys who wear those blue rosettes will be cheering the champions of the State." "Ha! Tell that to the marines. Perhaps they will believe it." This conversation took place between the occupants of two little sailboats, the Sunbeam and the Firefly, which had been thrown up into the wind and now lay almost motionless side by side, while the boys who made up their passengers and crews lounged on the thwarts, fanning their flushed faces with their hats, and ever and anon turning their eyes toward the shore in an eager, expectant manner, as if they were waiting for something.< Less

Hartley Mae Jones is an avid comic book fanatic and self-proclaimed geek girl living in a small town in coastal Massachusetts. She goes to a cyber high school and lives at home with her two moms and... More > cat, living as normal a life as one can live in those slightly unusual circumstances. When she meets Devin Sanders, everything she's ever known is put into question, but that's just the beginning. Hartley and Devin spend the summer bonding over video games, comic books, and firefly captures, but also are searching for something they both hadn't known they'd been missing and end up finding it in the most unexpected of places: in each other. By chance, they find themselves in one another. And along the way, Hartley discovers her true self and realizes that she really does have a say in her own happiness, contrary to what she used to think. The Comicality of Chance deals with themes in romance, sexuality, self-discovery, anxiety, the teenage experience, and what it truly means to be honest to yourself.< Less
Lord of the Mill By Henry Harvey
Paperback: $18.95
Prints in 3-5 business days
A strange man clanks and clatters in the alleyways at 4am, picking up the relics and trash from the town of Potter's Mill. Among the children, it's said that he's the Lord of the Mill, Potter's... More > Mill, which is an abandoned ruin that squats in the O'Hanley River. He talks to the fireflies and has a snapping turtle for his watchdog. But his kingdom is troubled. A woman, perhaps a witch, is intruding into his domain. The sign on her Model A truck says: The Cake Lady, and she delivers her cakes door-to-door... But the children know that her pastries change people...forever. So far, she's changed half the lawyers in Potter's Mill into snapping turtles. Two boys, Charlie and Bobby, must weigh the danger between confiding in the Lord of the Mill, and being turned into turtles by the witch. Harvey spins a modern day classic. Magic is magic, whether in the minds of children or grownups. This is a scary, funny, charming book for kids from five to ninety-five. Beautifully illustrated.< Less
Bloodsucker: The Batshit - XPRESS EDITION By Ian Warner & James Desborough

Maybe you even got a flash of anger when The Daleks went from being genocidal pepper pots to the Mighty Morphing Nazi Rangers. It's not like you wear a Starfleet uniform to work is it? It's not like you believe that Twilight is real and that you're going to be swept off your feet by a glittery vampire. It's not as though you honestly believe that you're the reincarnated soul of a half-elf, half-ocelot who protrudes into the collective unconcious in the form of obscure Japanese Hentai Games. It's not like you rugby-tackled David Duchovney while he was out jogging, screaming that you ‘believed' and that the smoking man was after you. You're not THAT guy. But The Batshit... they ARE that guy.< Less

Poems of Love and Life By Thomas Illingworth
Paperback: $13.34
Prints in 3-5 business days
This is Tom’s first book of poems. See below “A Life” as a sample from Tom’s book “Poems of Love and Life” Tom has been writing poetry for many years and this... More > is a culmination of his work. I really enjoy reading Tom’s poetry with the many and varied subjects. I particularly found “Prayer to God” and “God’s Answer” both moving and thought provoking, and I’m sure you will too. A Life Life is such a fragile thing Much weaker than a fireflies wing That breaks with just the merest strain So you may never come again If you are filled with deep despair And no one ever seems to care The only answer there must be Is to go right down upon your knee And pray unto the Lord on high A prayer to reach him in the sky Then he will answer you in kind Take all the worry from your mind He’ll take you in his arms with love This is the way of the Lord above I know that all of this will be It’s happened many times to me< Less
