Still Searching for the Big City Beats: Glenn Carmichael/ Kevin Evans
As the 50th anniversary of the murder of John F. Kennedy approaches, it seems as if opinions or who committed the crime are as divided as ever. Instead of a much hoped for consensus as to who might have been responsible for America´s greatest unsolved mystery, no clear and near unanimous verdict has come forth. Although the general public continues to support a conspiracy in the shooting, solid group of researchers and notable members of the main broadcast media in America pounce on every opportunity to quell any attempt to find Lee Harvey Oswald not guilty. Those who believe that the case against Oswald was weak have steadfastly held to the feeling that no new evidence has come forth to seal his fate once and for all. In fact, if anything the case against Oswald has continued to crumble bit by bit over time. Although the case against him is mostly circumstantial, television networks like National Geographic, Discovery, and History Channel have produced documentaries which allow little room for questioning Oswald´s guilt.So what is fact? What is fiction? Searching the Shadows - Steve Airheart´s presentation about the assassination of John F. Kennedy - is a straightforward, factual, insightful, objective and exciting compendium of the myriad facts and red herrings in the case. Mr. Airheart discusses major theories about JFK´s death and all the while gives the reader little-known facts, thought-provoking comments, and other curios which lead into the labyrinth of gangsters and government. Searching the Shadows is a factual and logical investigation that is easily understood. Originally published in print in 1993 and 2000, this eBook debut contains a brand new chapter from the author that details the most recent developments in the JFK murder case. 1. Language: English.

´´Wilson´s ambition alone is exciting. . . . [His] writing has a Houdini-like perfection, wherein no matter how grim the variables, each lovely sentence manages to escape with all its parts intact.´´ -Boston Globe When Isabelle Poole meets Dr. Preston Grind, she´s fresh out of high school, pregnant with her art teacher´s baby, and totally on her own. Izzy knows she can be a good mother but without any money or relatives to help, she´s left searching. Dr. Grind, an awkwardly charming child psychologist, has spent his life studying family, even after tragedy struck his own. Now, with the help of an eccentric billionaire, he has the chance to create a ´´perfect little world´´-to study what would happen when ten children are raised collectively, without knowing who their biological parents are. He calls it The Infinite Family Project and he wants Izzy and her son to join. This attempt at a utopian ideal starts off promising, but soon the gentle equilibrium among the families disintegrates: unspoken resentments between the couples begin to fester; the project´s funding becomes tenuous; and Izzy´s growing feelings for Dr. Grind make her question her participation in this strange experiment in the first place. Written with the same compassion and charm that won over legions of readers with The Family Fang, Kevin Wilson shows us with grace and humor that the best families are the ones we make for ourselves.

The music of Rush, one of the most successful bands in music history, is filled with fantastic stories, evocative images, thought-provoking futures and pasts. In this anthology, notable, best-selling, and award-winning writers each chose a Rush song as the spark for a new story, drawing inspiration from the visionary trio Geddy Lee, Alex Lifeson, and Neil Peart. Enduring stark dystopian struggles or testing the limits of the human spirit, the characters populating 2113 find strength while searching for hope in a world that is repressive, dangerous, or just debilitatingly bland. Most of these tales are science fiction, but some are fantasies, thrillers, even edgy mainstream. Many of Rush´s big hits are represented, as well as deeper cuts...with wonderful results. This anthology also includes the seminal stories that inspired the Rush classics ´´Red Barchetta´´ and ´´Roll the Bones´´, as well as Kevin J. Anderson´s novella sequel to the groundbreaking Rush album 2112. 2113 contains stories by New York Times best-selling authors Kevin J. Anderson, Michael Z. Williamson, David Alan Mack, David Farland, Dayton Ward, and Mercedes Lackey; award winners Fritz Leiber, John McFetridge, Steven Savile, Brad R. Torgersen, Ron Collins, David Niall Wilson, and Brian Hodge, as well as many other authors with their imaginations on fire. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Paul Boehmer.
