Download and read online The Book of Etta in PDF and EPUB In the gripping sequel to the Philip K. Dick Award-winning novel The Book of the Unnamed Midwife, one woman undertakes a desperate journey to rescue the future. Etta comes from Nowhere, a village of survivors of the great plague that wiped away the world that was. In the world that is, women are scarce and childbearing is dangerous...yet desperately necessary for humankind's future. Mothers and midwives are sacred, but Etta has a different calling. As a scavenger. Loyal to the village but living on her own terms, Etta roams the desolate territory beyond: salvaging useful relics of the ruined past and braving the threat of brutal slave traders, who are seeking women and girls to sell and subjugate. When slavers seize those she loves, Etta vows to release and avenge them. But her mission will lead her to the stronghold of the Lion--a tyrant who dominates the innocent with terror and violence. There, with no allies and few weapons besides her wits and will, she will risk both body and spirit not only to save lives but also to liberate a new world's destiny.

Download and read online Red Room Issue 1 Magazine of Extreme Horror and Hardcore Dark Crime in PDF and EPUB Red Room is a magazine of extreme horror and hardcore dark crime, full color and fully illustrated. FICTION BY Jack Ketchum, Meg Elison, Tim Waggoner, David James Keaton, Larry Hinkle, Tom Barlow, Nick Manzolillo, Josh Scott Wilson, and Gil Valle. "The Phantom Video Stream" by Nick Manzolillo sets the tone with red-room atmospherics in the story of a man who discovers a hidden channel streaming from what may be another reality. Tim Waggoner's "Are You Crazy?" answers its own question in shocking Waggoner style. Larry Hinkle's "Meat Cute" opens with "Stop staring at her tits!" and ends with a coldblooded revelation. Short and not so sweet. Tom Barlow's "Selfie" demonstrates that two heads aren't always better than one, not when they're spitting images. Meg Elison's "The Middle Child" takes an unflinching look at fame and greed and the mania underlying video virality. In "Sick Jokes" Josh Scott Wilson takes political incorrectness to new heights--and depths. David James Keaton, aka DJK, takes us for a ride into brutal biker mayhem that hits like a jackhammer in "The Flowery." Some tattoos ain't cool. Jack Ketchum reprises "Megan's Law," a disturbing look at what can happen when a child molester moves into a concerned dad's neighborhood. If you've never read this classic, you're in for a creepy treat, and if you have then you know it's definitely worth rereading. Plus, an exclusive excerpt from the NYPD's "Cannibal Cop" Gil Valle's upcoming Comet Press release of his first novel A Gathering of Evil, which parallels the message-board fantasies that landed him in jail. FEATURES Duane Bradley takes an irresistible look at the Video Nasties and the uproar those "obscene" video cassettes caused in the UK back in the 1980s. Ben Arzate reviews a formerly out-of-print classic horror novel, which is making a howling comeback. Patrick King reviews one of the best of the recent horror movie releases. Red Room interviews the phenomenal Meg Elison, and David L. Tamarin interviews Gil Valle, getting him to open up about his incarceration by the "thought police." Red Room regular Barfly Bob taste-tests the World's Most F**ked Up adult beverages. A surreal, behind the scenes glimpse at the Red Room headquarters with rogue reporter Brian J. McCarthy.

Download and read online Iconic Cars 5 Book Bundle in PDF and EPUB CORVETTE: The Chevrolet Corvette is a treasured American icon and one of the world’s most popular sports cars. The experts at Car and Driver, who have tested nearly every version of this sleek machine, have now compiled and curated over 50 years of articles, reviews, and news about the Corvette, from the first ’Vettes of the fifties to today’s Corvette Stingray. The original articles in this eBook come from the pens of some of the magazine’s most prominent writers: you’ll ride shotgun with Brock Yates on a 4,000-mile road trip to that “wilderness boulevard of dreamers and fortune hunters and runaways and outcasts—the Alaska Highway.” You’ll meet Zora Arcus-Duntov, the engineer most closely associated with the distinctive designs of the early ’60s Stingrays, and learn about “dead-end ’Vettes”—showcars with startling innovations that wound up ignored and discarded. Corvette aficionados and lovers of classic sports cars will savor this collection of photographs and articles that cover every significant aspect of these well-muscled machines. Features 81 color photographs. PORSCHE: It’s been called the best sports car money can buy and there’s no doubt about the power, beauty, and prestige that the Porsche name implies. Car and Driver has chronicled the German brand from its humble beginnings with the 356 Roadster to its modern lineup of supercars, super sedans, and even super SUVs. And now the magazine has collected its most important and most entertaining Porsche reviews and features in one volume, spanning road tests and comparisons from 1975 to today. The articles are reproduced with 79 of the stunning original photos in bright color or crisp black and white. The pages of Car and Driver have never looked so good. CHEVROLET CAMARO: Since the debut of the Camaro in 1966, the Chevy coupe’s combination of high style, stout performance, and affordable price have made it an automotive icon. This eBook, compiled from the pages of Road & Track magazine, includes the launch, the racers, the duds, and, of course, the Camaro’s return. You’ll find road tests, reviews, feature stories, and comparisons from the guys who know best, along with interviews with the folks behind the Camaro and columns from Matt DeLorenzo and Peter Egan. FORD MUSTANG: Nothing says America like the Ford Mustang, the original pony car and the country’s most loved sporting machine. This eBook, pulled from the pages of Road & Track, documents the rise of an icon—the brainchild of crude engineering, modern styling, and fantastic marketing. This eBook looks back over 50 years of coverage, from Le Mans recaps to 0–60 times to the dark years of the Mustang II. There are road tests, comparisons, and reviews from the R&T archives, which taken as a whole explain how the car that defined a generation continues to mean so much to so many. BMW M SERIES: From the 3.0 CSL’s debut in 1972, BMW has taken a very balanced approach to tuning its M division cars, turning already competitive models into well-rounded, capable performance machines. This eBook collects Road & Track’s BMW M car coverage, including features, reviews, comparison tests, and interviews on everything from the M3 and M5 to the short-lived M1 supercar, and even today’s M-badged SUVs. It’s a great way for the enthusiast to revisit the brand or for the uninitiated to see what they’ve been missing.

Download and read online Blacks in Blackface in PDF and EPUB Published in 1980, Blacks in Blackface was the first and most extensive book up to that time to deal exclusively with every aspect of all-African American musical comedies performed on the stage between 1900 and 1940. An invaluable resource for scholars and historians focused on African American culture, this new edition features significantly revised, expanded, and new material. In Blacks in Blackface: A Sourcebook on Early Black Musical Shows, Henry T. Sampson provides an unprecedented wealth of information on legitimate musical comedies, including show synopses, casts, songs, and production credits. Sampson also recounts the struggles of African American performers and producers to overcome the racial prejudice of white show owners, music publishers, theatre managers, and booking agents to achieve adequate financial compensation for their talents and managerial expertise. Black producers and artists competed with white managers who were producing all-Black shows and also with some white entertainers who were performing Black-developed music and dances, often in blackface. The chapters in this volume include: An overview of African American musical shows from the end of the Civil War through the golden years of the 1920s and ’30s New and expanded biographical sketches of performers Detailed information about the first producers and owners of Black minstrel and musical comedy shows Origins and backgrounds of several famous Black theatres Profiles of African American entrepreneurs and businessmen who provided financial resources to build and own many of the Black theatres where these shows were performed A chronicle of booking agencies and organized Black theatrical circuits, music publishing houses, and phonograph recording businesses Critical commentary from African American newspapers and show business publications More than 500 hundred rare photographs A comprehensive volume that covers all aspects of Black musical shows performed in theatres, nightclubs, circuses, and medicine shows, this edition of Blacks in Blackface can be used as a reference for serious scholars and researchers of Black show business in the United States before 1940. More than double the size of the previous edition, this useful resource will also appeal to the casual reader who is interested in learning more about early Black entertainment.
