Crazy Dog Song Excerpt :

A brooding Gothic novel of suspense that reaches beyond the grave. Snooky, the retarded black boy, and Crazy Dog, the itinerant hound wander onto the decaying Voshaylee plantation. They witness without understanding, the love between Elizabeth and B.K. outside modern-day Atlanta, battling the power of Elizabeth's mother Maria from beyond the grave, Philip's endless love for his dead wife Maria and the bizarre love of the ever-naked young Travis and the mistress of Gavonlee, well into her eighties, as she attempts to quiet the crying imaginary child locked in her bedroom closet. Around these sick, weird but hypnotic characters revolve Bo Skooter, Miss Lucy's husband who is killed in circumstances as strange as his marriage, The Baby, Miss Lucy's daughter who found so little love as an unnamed child that she enjoys her mother's descent into dementia. Mother, Elizabeth's obese aberrant relative manipulates all. Philip seldom leaves his own rooms…and for very good reasons. Over all these twisted people hovers Maria, effecting more havoc from the grave than ever when alive. And then there is the pet snake. You may hate Crazy Dog Song but you will never forget it.

Black Dog Songs Excerpt :

Poetry. Simply one of the most admired and imitated poets of her generation, Lisa Jarnot's third volume of poetry does what only Jarnot can do. Decidedly lyrical, always reliant on repetition and rhythm, what emergies in this book is a catalog of loves and laments: "Just the eldergrass and him, the fog, unpoliced and safe inside the train, the thoughts of rain, Apollo, and the sun..." As Stan Brackage has said of Jarnot, "[H]er words are never severed from the means that engendered them; and the consequent meanings are never detached from the meditative drama of each whole poem."

The Song Dog Excerpt :

“Afrikaner Tromp Kramer and Bantu Sergeant Zondi [are] two detectives who are as far from stereotypes as any in the genre” (P. D. James, bestselling author of Death Comes to Pemberly). The year is 1962. Young Lt. Tromp Kramer of the Trekkersburg Murder and Robbery Squad has been ordered up to Jafini, a small, dusty town in northern Zululand, to investigate the “hero’s death” of the town’s chief detective, Maaties Kritzinger—another Afrikaner maverick, and one with many secrets. Kramer finds himself increasingly identifying with the victim as the investigation proceeds. And then his path crosses that of Bantu Det. Sgt. Mickey Zondi, who is trying to locate a killer whose summary execution will quiet the spirits of his ancestors. Despite racial differences, the two men sense a kinship—one that might prove dangerous in rural South Africa in the year of Nelson Mandela’s imprisonment. This riveting entry in the Gold Dagger Award–winning series reveals how the team of Kramer and Zondi first met, set against a fascinating historical backdrop.

Vinyl Junkies Excerpt :

Not too far away from the flea markets, dusty attics, cluttered used record stores and Ebay is the world of the vinyl junkies. Brett Milano dives deep into the piles of old vinyl to uncover the subculture of record collecting. A vinyl junkie is not the person who has a few old 45s shoved in the cuboard from their days in high school. Vinyl Junkies are the people who will travel over 3,000 miles to hear a rare b-side by a German band that has only recorded two songs since 1962, vinyl junkies are the people who own every copy of every record produced by the favorite artist from every pressing and printing in existance, vinyl junkies are the people who may just love that black plastic more than anything else in their lives. Brett Milano traveled the U.S. seeking out the most die-hard and fanatical collectors to capture all that it means to be a vinyl junkie. Includes interviews with Thurston Moore of Sonic Youth, Peter Buck from R.E.M and Robert Crumb, creator of Fritz the cat and many more underground comics.

All The Songs Excerpt :

**NOTE: EBOOK DOES NOT INCLUDE ANY IMAGES** Every album and every song ever released by the Beatles?from "Please Please Me" (U.S. 1963) to "The Long and Winding Road" (U.S. 1970)?is dissected, discussed, and analyzed by two music historians in this lively and fully illustrated work. All the Songs delves deep into the history and origins of the Beatles and their music. This first-of-its-kind book draws upon decades of research, as music historians Margotin and Guesdon recount the circumstances that led to the composition of every song, the recording process, and the instruments used. Here, we learn that one of John Lennon's favorite guitars was a 1958 Rickenbacker 325 Capri, which he bought for £100 in 1960 in Hamburg, Germany. We also learn that "Love Me Do," recorded in Abbey Road Studios in September 1962, took 18 takes to get right, even though it was one of the first songs John and Paul ever wrote together. And the authors reveal that when the Beatles performed "I Want to Hold Your Hand" on The Ed Sullivan Show in 1964, John's microphone wasn't turned on, so viewers heard only Paul singing. All the Songs is the must-have Beatles book for the any true Beatles fan.
