When Daniel Hoffman published a brief volume of selected poems in England, the Times Literary Supplement praised “his zestful verbal performance, supple use of rhyme and other sound effects” that “make the processes of his writing interesting.” That same vitality and interest inform Hang-Gliding from Helicon, which presents more than forty new poems and a generous selection from six of Hoffman’s previous books. Commenting on the most recent of these in the Southern Review, Monroe K. Spears wrote, “Hoffman’s new volume seems to me to establish his claim to the title of major poet.” In the New Republic, Josephine Jacobsen observed: “Three major strands knit into a strong texture: myth, history, and immediate experience . . . What he once wrote of Robert Graves is true of his own work: both combine ‘A Dionysian compulsion to belief with an Apollonian clarity of presentation.’” In the opening piece of this volume, entitled “The Poem,” Hoffman writes: True to itself, by what craft And strength it has, it has come As a sole survivor returns From the steep pass. Carved on memory’s staff The legend is nearly decipherable. It has lived up to its vows If it endures The journey through the dark places To bear witness, Casting its message In a sort of singing. Hoffman’s poetry is a celebration of life, yet some of his poems have dark implications. “The City of Satisfactions” is a journey into the haunted heart of the American dream. “The Center of Attention” portrays a suicidal man being taunted by a crowd to jump from a bridge, and “Witnesses” explores the aftermath of a car wreck on a desolate stretch of rural highway. Each of Hoffman’s poems represents a striking response to the moments of being alive. Hang-Gliding from Helicon affirms the power of poetry to make possible the acceptance and transformation of life. Daniel Hoffman has given us a remarkable statement of his deep poetic faith.

Defend yourself and protect your assets in a lair that feels as real and alive as your monsters with advice from Keith Ammann, author of The Monsters Know What They’re Doing: Combat Tactics for Dungeon Masters. The world is a dangerous place—especially when you’re up to no good. Whether you’re a rampaging monster, a calculating mastermind, or the current possessor of the Golden MacGuffin, someone’s going to come at you. Probably more than one someone. You can’t know when, but you can choose where. You need to be ready. You need a lair. In How to Defend Your Lair, gamemaster Keith Ammann pulls back the curtain on an underrated but crucial part of any tabletop roleplaying game: the theater of battle. Say goodbye to encounters in randomly generated dungeons and hello to a game in which where the fight takes place is just as important as who is doing the fighting. This book teaches you how to use real-world principles of building security and area defense to create strongholds infused with flavor, informed by narrative, and complex enough to force your players to think strategically. You’ll look at the strengths and weaknesses of both defenders and potential attackers, creating spaces that are strong enough to keep out ordinary intruders...and to provide thrilling challenges to extraordinary ones. Including more than a dozen fleshed-out sample strongholds, How to Defend Your Lair is a crucial resource for any RPG gamemaster who wants to push players to think about how to solve problems before running at them head-on.

"Remember when paperback originals were cool? Sex, action, suspense? Try FRANKENSTORM. It's old school." —Stephen King A storm of epic proportions is brewing off the coast of northern California. Residents have been warned to prepare for disaster. It's a false hope in the face of what's coming. . . Frankenstorm In a secret government lab, virologist Fara McManus tries to stop an experiment out of control—before more human subjects are infected. But in a blazing hail of bullets, survivalist Ollie Monk launches a paramilitary attack on the lab, releasing the infected into the night. And as the nightmare escalates to a fever pitch, internet blogger Ivan Renner traces the destruction as it claims more victims, beginning with a single mother unknowingly spreading the virus. A father and son, held hostage by a lunatic. A local sheriff, single-handedly fighting madness, murder, and worse. No one will find shelter from this storm. Praise For Ray Garton "Gripping, original, and sly."—Dean Koontz on Live Girls "Garton will scare you."—Fangoria Includes Ray Garton's bonus story "The Guy Down the Street"

One girl and a griffin against an empire: A dying land. The Shima Imperium verges on collapse. Land and sky have been poisoned by clockwork industrialization, the Lotus Guild oppresses the populace and the nation’s Shogun is lost to his thirst for power. An impossible quest. Yukiko and her warrior father are forced to hunt down a griffin at the Shogun’s command. But any fool knows griffins are extinct – and death will be the price of failure. A hidden gift. Disaster strikes and Yukiko is stranded in the wilderness with a fabled griffin, now furious and crippled. Although she hears his thoughts and saved his life, Yukiko knows he’d rather see her dead than help her. And discovery of the talent allowing them to communicate would mean her execution. Yet together, the pair will form an indomitable bond, and rise to challenge an empire. Set in steampunk Japan, Jay Kristoff's Stormdancer is full of mythic creatures, demons and Gods, and a strong female protagonist. Continue the Lotus War Trilogy with Kinslayer and Endsinger.

Herman Sinaiko is renowned for his gifts as a guide to exploring and appreciating the humanities. This book brings to general readers Sinaiko’s thoughts on, and invitations to read or reread, a wide selection of major literary and philosophical works—from ancient Greek to Chinese to modern. Taking a conversational approach, he deals with the perennial questions that thinking people have always raised, and investigates how works of great art may provide answers to these questions. Sinaiko reestablishes the notion that there is a canon of great works from the great traditions of the world and argues for the existence of permanent standards of excellence. He rejects most contemporary critical views of classical literature and philosophy, including those of "experts" who seek to monopolize access to great works, academics whose extreme emphasis on historical context disallows any current relevance, and theorists whose lenses distort with personal bias rather than sharpening focus on the works they discuss. Sinaiko reclaims the canon for all of us, opening up discussion on texts ranging from Plato to Tolstoy, Confucius to Mary Shelley, and encouraging each reader to listen and respond to the rich diversity of powerful views on the human condition that such great works offer.
