A novel based on the amazingly true story of two runaway elephants in Oklahoma. In the summer of 1975, Lily and Isa, baby elephants barely two years old, bolted from the hands of circus trainers into the impenetrable hardwood forest of remote Southeastern Oklahoma, leading a beleaguered sheriff's posse, colorful locals bent on collecting rewards and a big game hunter on a desperate month long search. Born into captivity, taught to perform tricks and forced into assisting with rigorous construction tasks, Lily and Isa's sudden freedom seemed doomed on an hour to hour basis. They came face to face with fierce animals, outran packs of bloodhounds, outsmarted hard charging horsemen and outlasted head on clashes with planes, trains and automobiles. The deeper into the woods they wondered, the greater the peril. Dehydration, starvation, heat exhaustion and gushing wounds mounted with each passing day. Their owners thought they would surely give up and wait to be rescued. Did they? Was it worth what they had to endure to be free? The clock was ticking. Tame elephants stand zero chance of adapting well enough to survive in the wild. A work of fiction inspired by true events, White's lively and amusing debut novel leaves it to the reader to decide if Lily and Isa were truly lost and needed to be rescued or did they escape in pursuit of a better life?

The aftershocks of a murder-suicide resonate through a small town where everybody knows everybody else's business. By turns hilarious and poignant, this daring, debut novel begins with the violent end of a marriage. A local wife-and-mother has killed her husband after finding him in the midst of an affair. Each chapter, written from a different community member's point of view, shows the ripple effect of that dramatic event and how it has affected the townspeople differently--some directly and others less so, but all meaningfully and irrevocably. As the novel progresses, the narrative spirals inward until the stories of those most intimately involved are ultimately revealed.

Dina DeMille may run the nicest Bed and Breakfast in Red Deer, Texas, but she caters to a very particular kind of guest... the kind that no one on Earth is supposed to know about. Guests like a former intergalactic tyrant with an impressive bounty on her head, the Lord Marshal of a powerful vampire clan, and a displaced-and-superhot werewolf; so don't stand too close, or you may be collateral damage. But what passes for Dina's normal life is about to be thrown into chaos. First, she must rescue her long-distant older sister, Maud, who's been exiled with her family to a planet that functions as the most lawless penal colony since Botany Bay. Then she agrees to help a guest whose last chance at saving his civilization could bring death and disaster to all Dina holds dear. Now Gertrude Hunt is under siege by a clan of assassins. To keep her guests safe and to find her missing parents, Dina will risk everything, even if she has to pay the ultimate price. Though Sean may have something to say about that! From the New York Times #1 bestselling author, Ilona Andrews, comes a new tale from the Innkeeper Chronicles "Ilona Andrews's books are guaranteed good reads."-Patricia Briggs, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Fire Touched

The present volume is a sequel to Deontic Logic: Introductory and Systematic Readings (D. Reidel Publishing Company, Dordrecht 1971): its purpose is to offer a view of some of the main directions of research in contemporary deontic logic. Most of the articles included in Introductory and Systematic Readings represent what may be called the standard modal approach to deontic logic, in which de on tic logic is treated as a branch of modal logic, and the normative concepts of obligation, permission and prohibition are regarded as analogous to the "alethic" modalities necessity, possibility and impossibility. As Simo Knuuttila shows in his contribution to the present volume, this approach goes back to late medieval philosophy. Several 14th century philosophers observed the analogies between deontic and alethic modalities and discussed the deontic interpretations of various laws of modal logic. In contemporary deontic logic the modal approach was revived by G. H. von Wright's classic paper 'Deontic Logic' (1951). Certain analogies between deontic and alethic modalities are obvious and uncontroversial, but the standard approach has often been criticized on the ground that it exaggerates the analogies and tends to ignore those features of normative concepts which distinguish them from other modalities.

Stuart Heritage got where he is today by being decent, thoughtful, hardworking and kind. He is, in short, a model citizen. The favourite son. His younger brother Pete is quick-tempered, peevish and aggressively pig-headed and, for a while, known to his friends as 'Shagger'. But now, Stu has returned to his hometown to discover that Pete has taken his place. Practical and resourceful where Stu is not, Pete has become a shoulder to lean on. He is now undoubtedly the better son. And all at once Pete and Stu have to reevaluate their fraternal dynamic. It should be easy, but it isn't. Because, well ... Pete's a dick. Don’t Be A Dick, Pete is Stuart Heritage’s unconventional and laugh-out-loud biography of his brother. It is a hilarious examination of home and family; sons, fathers, fatherhood, sibling relationships and how hard it is to move on in a system that’s loaded with several decades of preconceived ideas about you.
