From the author of The Creation of Eve, “an intoxicating tale of love, betrayal and redemption,”* comes a novel of passion and madness, royal intrigue and marital betrayal, set during the Golden Age of Spain. Juana of Castile, third child of the Spanish monarchs Isabel and Fernando, grows up with no hope of inheriting her parents’ crowns, but as a princess knows her duty: to further her family’s ambitions through marriage. When she weds the Duke of Burgundy, a young man so beautiful that he is known as Philippe the Handsome, she dares to hope that she might have both love and crowns. He is caring, charming, and attracted to her—seemingly a perfect husband. But when Queen Isabel dies, the crowns of Spain unexpectedly pass down to Juana, leaving her husband and her father hungering for the throne. Rumors fly that the young Queen has gone mad, driven insane by possessiveness. Locked away in a palace and unseen by her people for the next forty-six years, Juana of Castile begins one of the most controversial reigns in Spanish history, one that earned her the title of Juana the Mad. *The Washington Post A Best of the South 2011 selection by Atlanta Journal Constitution

In Ages past, the wizards and sorcerors, seers and witches, healers and enchanters of Terra fled the expansion of monotheism and science for a world already peopled by refugees from worlds uncounted. On Xeuxondra, Humanity's magicians carved out an Empire where their children could live safely in their gifts. Eight centuries have passed and the Imperial House has fallen into decay. The latest in a series of bad Emperors, Josef XII, has ruled with cruelty, corruption, and madness. The Archpriest of the God of Vengeance has called a Convocation in the city of Armaconia to discuss what to do about the state of affairs. Into this situation falls two young men destined to steer the Empire and the world into the future. Despite his madness and cruelty, the wise and virtuous Empress, long disgusted by her husband, has managed to raise three children that give hope for the Imperial House of Pfalia. The eldest, Crown Prince Jan, is on his way to Armaconia to meet his betrothed. There he will discover a priesthood in rebellion, assassins out for his blood, a new love, a soul-mate unlike any he could ever have dreamed, and a burden of responsibility both unfair and inevitable. As Prince Jan is journeying to the Holy City of Armaconia, Josef Samuelson is endeavoring to escape arrest and conscription on Terra by the Paranormal Apprehension Squad. A magician from a long line of powerful practitioners hiding what they were, Josef uses an ancient spell passed down through the centuries to flee Terra for Xeuxondra, emerging over a lake near Armaconia. Taken in by the priesthood, Josef is thrust into a power struggle between the cruelty of Emperor Josef XII and the determination of the God of Vengeance's Archpriest to free the Empire from his reign of madness. Young Samuelson finds a new home where he can be himself, a new family to protect and defend, and a friend closer than any the young man had ever known. Will the power of Josef Samuelson's magic and the uncanny plotting of his supporters allow him to overcome the might of the Emperor of the Zauberin and the machinations of unseen forces that are converging on the Imperial Capital that has suddenly become the crossroads to the future of an Empire that has spanned eight centuries? Two young men thrown together have started down the path of a very strange destiny none can predict.

During the 1960s, a bushel of B–movies were produced and aimed at the predominantly teenage drive-in movie audience. At first teens couldn’t get enough of the bikini-clad beauties dancing on the beach or being wooed by Elvis Presley, but by 1966 young audiences became more interested in the mini-skirted, go-go boot wearing, independent-minded gals of spy spoofs, hot rod movies and biker flicks. Profiled herein are fifty sexy, young actresses that teenage girls envied and teenage boys desired including Quinn O’Hara, Melody Patterson, Hilarie Thompson, Donna Loren, Pat Priest, Meredith MacRae, Arlene Martel, Cynthia Pepper, and Beverly Washburn. Some like Sue Ane Langdon, Juliet Prowse, Marlyn Mason, and Carole Wells, appeared in major studio productions while others, such as Regina Carrol, Susan Hart, Angelique Pettyjohn and Suzie Kaye were relegated to drive-in movies only. Each biography contains a complete filmography. Some also include the actresses’ candid comments and anecdotes about their films, the people they worked with, and their feelings about acting. A list of web sites that provide further information is also included.

NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • The perfect holiday gift for fans of A Song of Ice and Fire and HBO’s Game of Thrones—an epic history of Westeros and the lands beyond, featuring hundreds of pages of all-new material from George R. R. Martin! If the past is prologue, then George R. R. Martin’s masterwork—the most inventive and entertaining fantasy saga of our time—warrants one hell of an introduction. At long last, it has arrived with The World of Ice & Fire. This lavishly illustrated volume is a comprehensive history of the Seven Kingdoms, providing vividly constructed accounts of the epic battles, bitter rivalries, and daring rebellions that lead to the events of A Song of Ice and Fire and HBO’s Game of Thrones. In a collaboration that’s been years in the making, Martin has teamed with Elio M. García, Jr., and Linda Antonsson, the founders of the renowned fan site Westeros.org—perhaps the only people who know this world almost as well as its visionary creator. Collected here is all the accumulated knowledge, scholarly speculation, and inherited folk tales of maesters and septons, maegi and singers, including • artwork and maps, with more than 170 original pieces • full family trees for Houses Stark, Lannister, and Targaryen • in-depth explorations of the history and culture of Westeros • 100% all-new material, more than half of which Martin wrote specifically for this book The definitive companion piece to George R. R. Martin’s dazzlingly conceived universe, The World of Ice & Fire is indeed proof that the pen is mightier than a storm of swords.
