"Here is the most telling fact: you wish to possess me. Here is another fact: I loved you and let you think you could." When Irene America discovers that her husband, Gil, has been reading her diary, she begins a secret Blue Notebook, stashed securely in a safe-deposit box. There she records the truth about her life and her marriage, while turning her Red Diary—hidden where Gil will find it—into a manipulative farce. Alternating between these two records, complemented by unflinching third-person narration, Shadow Tag is an eerily gripping read. When the novel opens, Irene is resuming work on her doctoral thesis about George Catlin, the nineteenth-century painter whose Native American subjects often regarded his portraits with suspicious wonder. Gil, who gained notoriety as an artist through his emotionally revealing portraits of his wife—work that is adoring, sensual, and humiliating, even shocking—realizes that his fear of losing Irene may force him to create the defining work of his career. Meanwhile, Irene and Gil fight to keep up appearances for their three children: fourteen-year-old genius Florian, who escapes his family's unraveling with joints and a stolen bottle of wine; Riel, their only daughter, an eleven-year-old feverishly planning to preserve her family, no matter what disaster strikes; and sweet kindergartener Stoney, who was born, his parents come to realize, at the beginning of the end. As her home increasingly becomes a place of violence and secrets, and she drifts into alcoholism, Irene moves to end her marriage. But her attachment to Gil is filled with shadowy need and delicious ironies. In brilliantly controlled prose, Shadow Tag fearlessly explores the complex nature of love, the fluid boundaries of identity, and one family's struggle for survival and redemption.

From New York Times bestselling authors Raymond Khoury and Steve Berry comes a unique and wildly original short story, published exclusively as a Kindle ebook.It's been ten years since FBI agent Sean Reilly and retired Justice Department operative Cotton Malone got dragged around the globe on their separate Templar adventures. They'd never worked on a case together-until now.Something bizarre is afoot in London, England. "American specialists" have gone missing, and intel chatter points to a major terrorist plot in the works. And a familiar keyword links to both Reilly and Malone.The two agents are sent to London where they discover a plot that's more personal, unusual and surprising than they could have possibly imagined (and one that may involve a couple of writerly characters new to fiction whom you might recognise). Fast, furious and funny, Shadow Tag is NOT like the Reilly and Malone thrillers you've grown to love. Instead, it's something different: a playful, lighthearted read that combines reality and fiction. And we hope it's like nothing you've read before.

Die siebzehnjährige Dot ist ein wildes, zorniges, rücksichtsloses Mädchen. Bei Mitschülern und Lehrern ist sie verhasst und gefürchtet. Zu Hause buhlen Mary, die Tante, Karl, der Vater, Celestine, die Mutter, und Wallace Pfef, der Pate, vergeblich um ihre Liebe – schamlos und unerschrocken spielt Dot sie gegeneinander aus. Da meint Wallace, eine gute Idee zu haben: Alles setzt er in Bewegung, um seine heißgeliebte Nichte beim Sommerfest zur Rübenkönigin zu küren. Doch statt Dankbarkeit zu zeigen, streckt Dot den Patenonkel mit drei Softbällen nieder, entert einen Doppeldecker und fliegt davon – wie einst ihre Großmutter Adelaide Adare, die vierzig Jahre zuvor auf einem Jahrmarkt in einem Luftschiff entschwand und ihre Kinder Mary und Karl zu Waisen machte, lange bevor in Argus, Dakota, Rüben angebaut wurden und das Leben in der Stadt sich von Grund auf veränderte... Eine anrührende und phantastische Familiensaga dreier Generationen. “Ein glänzender Roman.” The New York Times. „Das seltene Ereignis eines perfekten – und einfach wundervollen – Romans von einer der großen Autorinnen unserer Tage." Anne Tyler.

On behalf of all of the people involved in the program selection, the program committee members as well as numerous other reviewers, we are both relieved and pleased to present you with the proceedings of the 2006 Asia-Pacific Computer Systems Architecture Conference (ACSAC 2006), which is being hosted in Shanghai on September 6–8, 2006. This is the 11th in a series of conferences, which started life in Australia, as the computer architecture component of the Australian Computer Science Week. In 1999 it ventured away from its roots for the first time, and the fourth Australasian Computer Architecture Conference was held in the beautiful city of Sails (Auckland, New Zealand). Perhaps it was because of a lack of any other computer architecture conference in Asia or just the attraction of traveling to the Southern Hemisphere but the conference became increasingly international during the subsequent three years and also changed its name to include Computer Systems Architecture, reflecting more the scope of the conference, which embraces both architectural and systems issues. In 2003, the conference again ventured offshore to reflect its constituency and since then has been held in Japan in the beautiful city of Aizu-Wakamatsu, followed by Beijing and Singapore. This year it again returns to China and next year will move to Korea for the first time, where it will be organized by the Korea University.

»Louise Erdrichs leuchtendes Meisterwerk.« Philip Roth. Die kleine Stadt Pluto in North Dakota scheint am Rande des Universums zu liegen. Hier ist jeder mit jedem verbunden – durch Liebe, Freundschaft oder Blutsbande. Und vor allem durch eine dunkle Geschichte, die seit fast einhundert Jahren auf den Menschen lastet. »Ein chorisches Gesamtwerk, dessen erstaunlicher Registerreichtum Witz und Poesie, Lakonie und Pathos gleichermaßen einschließt, derart raffiniert, dass wir am Schluss das Buch sofort noch einmal lesen wollen. Mag Pluto noch so weit entfernt und unwirtlich erscheinen – in diesem Geschichtenkosmos fühlt man sich dort plötzlich seltsam heimisch.« Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung

The 6th International Conference on Pedestrian and Evacuation Dynamics (PED2012) showcased research on human locomotion. This book presents the proceedings of PED2012. Humans have walked for eons; our drive to settle the globe began with a walk out of Africa. However, much remains to discover. As the world moves toward sustainability while racing to assess and accommodate climate change, research must provide insight on the physical requirements of walking, the dynamics of pedestrians on the move and more. We must understand, predict and simulate pedestrian behaviour, to avoid dangerous situations, to plan for emergencies, and not least, to make walking more attractive and enjoyable. PED2012 offered 70 presentations and keynote talks as well as 70 poster presentations covering new and improved mathematical models, describing new insights on pedestrian behaviour in normal and emergency cases and presenting research based on sensors and advanced observation methods. These papers offer a starting point for innovative new research, building a strong foundation for the next conference and for future research.
