Of course, working at the Cosmodemonic Broadcasting Corporation as a news writer is not David Henry's first choice for employment. But circumstances conspire against him--his parents won't lend him money, girls won't talk to him at parties, magazines won't pay him enough, and the rent is due. Feeling out of touch with his times--"Frankly, the 20th Century scares the shit out of me"--David Henry is often caught daydreaming, drink in hand, head in the clouds, wishing he were somewhere else. Sandwiched between Gen X and the Boomers, his is not the media's generation of choice, but rather a sensitive, desperate lot who see TV as the enemy, and Madonna as, well, just plain frightening. But David Henry, hounded by a pack of vicious creditors, needs cash and needs it quickly. If there is a way to get it (legally) without a job, he'll do it. The next best thing is the Cosmodemonic hamsterwheel, a government-owned network chock-full of overpaid louts with their snouts in the trough. Not that he has any problem with that... "Government fat tastes just like chicken," says Mr. Henry--but there is always a downside to a Faustian pact, and he is about to find out what that is, and then some.

Unabridged version of The Mis-Education of the Negro, by Carter Godwin Woodson, offered here for chump change. An underappreciated classic, anyone studying influence, the psychology of persuasion, or social controls would do well to study this book. Woodson states it straight and deserves greater study by all in power, "When you control a man's thinking you do not have to worry about his actions. You do not have to tell him not to stand here or go yonder. He will find his 'proper place' and will stay in it." For those that read The Art of War, The Prince, Meditations, or How to Win Friends and Influence People, this book, The Mis-Education of the Negro, should be added to their book shelf of classics Contents Foreword 3 Preface 3 Chapter I: The Seat of the Trouble 5 Chapter II: How We Missed the Mark 7 Chapter III: How We Drifted Away from the Truth 10 Chapter IV: Education Under Outside Control 13 Chapter V: The Failure to Learn to Make a Living 16 Chapter VI: The Educated Negro Leaves the Masses 21 Chapter VII: Dissension and Weakness 24 Chapter VIII: Professional Education Discouraged 28 Chapter IX: Political Education Neglected 31 Chapter X: The Loss of Vision 35 Chapter XI: The Need for Service Rather than Leadership 40 Chapter XII: Hirelings in the Places of Public Servants 43 Chapter XIII: Understand the Negro 47 Chapter XIV: The New Program 51 Chapter XV: Vocational Guidance 55 Chapter XVI: The New Type of Professional Man Required 60 Chapter XVII: Higher Strivings in the Service of the Country 63 Chapter XVIII: The Study of the Negro 66 Appendix 68

Sarah Morgan spells big trouble for Jon Burns even before they meet. In a dream, the wayward slacker hears her crying out. In visions, he’s confronted by a demonic image from her extreme paintings. When the two twenty-somethings meet at a Michigan college, it gets worse. Sarah, a prolific artist, is beyond gorgeous, but wild and maddeningly aloof. Ignoring the omens, Jon enters the fray and wins the brassy siren (sort of), only to discover the secret past that has left her damaged. As the darkness in Sarah rises up, she becomes unpredictable. Aaron, an analyst, studies Sarah’s art and warns Jon of her precarious balance. Jon’s own grip starts slipping and his life gets bizarre—more than usual, that is. But the lovers are linked in spite of themselves, and they battle through Sarah’s ordeal until a great test is forced upon them. Witty and darkly comic, May I Walk You Home, Sarah Morgan? tells of two lost souls, locked in different struggles, but mysteriously thrown together to face hard lessons of life and love. A well plotted, character driven human drama that explores the taboos of today’s dysfunctional society with Frank’s unique sense of dark humor. You will laugh, you will cry, but most of all you will root for these two to prove that love does conquer all. A must read for all, young and old, who have struggled with the meaning of love in their lives. — Terri Valentine

One of our most visceral and important memoirs on race in America, this is the story of Nathan McCall, who began life as a smart kid in a close, protective family in a black working-class neighborhood. Yet by the age of fifteen, McCall was packing a gun and embarking on a criminal career that five years later would land him in prison for armed robbery. In these pages, McCall chronicles his passage from the street to the prison yard—and, later, to the newsrooms of The Washington Post and ultimately to the faculty of Emory University. His story is at once devastating and inspiring, at once an indictment and an elegy. Makes Me Wanna Holler became an instant classic when it was first published in 1994 and it continues to bear witness to the great troubles—and the great hopes—of our nation.

Georgina has dreamed of being the fourth generation in her family to practice medicine ever since she was a little girl. Her medical school experience lasts a scant two years before she gets married and starts a family. Putting her husband’s and family’s needs first, Georgina puts her dreams on hold and raises three children, one of whom suffers from a mysterious health condition. Georgina loses faith in the medical profession when, over a few years, none of the doctors help her daughter get well. When the children have grown, Georgina struggles with the decision of whether to return to medical school. In the end, she realizes her passions lie in alternative health. She moves in that direction, only to be faced with one obstacle after another. Her erstwhile supportive husband becomes resentful of the time and money she needs to invest in pursuing her dream, her father all but disowns her, and she struggles to find her niche in a profession limited by misconceptions at best and threatened by legal issues at worst. Armed with a firm belief in alternative health, faith that she is responding to her calling in life, and the encouragement of a few supportive people, Georgina strives to balance family and career while becoming the healer of her childhood dreams.

Karl De Mesa's Radiant Void is a collection of engaging and observant reportage and journalism on Philippine popular culture, from indie music, the comedy of Michael V, the rise of sleeping disorders among call center agents, to the rise of MMA in the Philippines."e;If there is one thing that's enviable in Karl De Mesa's writing, it's his sense of restlessness. Coupled with a zeitgeisty sense of phraseology and a penchant for the grotesque, this agitation-encapsulated in spitfire Hunter S. Thompson-vibe notes on a sort of continuing present-day doomsday (a socio-cultural doomsday, if you may)-is even more marked, even more gripping than in his already-golden fiction. I say this because, shit, what's more terrifying than the real world? In Report From the Abyss, De Mesa respects his subjects enough to offer himself up to a sort of voluntary drowning, a drowning in worlds not entirely his, an unwelcome, chest-thumping guest so snarky in prosody and observation-nay, journalism-that these very worlds are shaken, momentarily plucked from their otherwise steady orbits."e; - ALDUS SANTOS, Author of Vocalese (Poems) and Repeat While Fading"e;Karl R. De Mesa's writing is like a Mac running on a multi-core-fast, gripping and smooth. The only choking that happens is the one you feel at the base of your throat after reading it."e; - ISHA, movie soundtrack scorer, folk-jazz singer"e;Philippine culture is not a melting pot, as Karl De Mesa makes clear in this engaging set of essays on the rich smorgasbord that comprises the country. There are pop culture icons here, but also underground heroes, contemporary babes (Marian and Solenn), and discerning pieces on how "e;Jingle Magazine"e; and a defunct rock club shaped much of today's music culture without most of today fans knowing it. Then there's the reportage about deadly family feuds in Mindanao and sleepless call center agents, and you begin to wonder, all this in the same country? The flip side of disunity is diversity, and it takes a writer of Karl De Mesa's versatility to capture it in all its riotous glory."e; - HOWIE SEVERINO, news anchor, journo icon
