Summary : As the last Don of the Philadelphia mob, Ralph Natale, the first-ever mob boss to turn state’s evidence, provides an insider’s perspective on the mafia. Natale’s reign atop the Philadelphia and New Jersey underworlds brought the region’s mafia back to prominence in the 1990s. Smart, savvy, and articulate, Natale came up in the mob and saw first-hand as it hatched its plan to control Atlantic City’s casino unions. Later on, after spending 16 years in prison, he reclaimed the family as his own after a bloody mob war that left bodies scattered across South Philly. He forged connections around the country, invigorated the family with more allies than it had in two decades, and achieved a status within the mob never seen before or since until he was betrayed by his men and decided to testify against them in a stunning turn of events. Using dozens of hours of interviews with Natale along with research and interviews with FBI agents, this book delivers revelatory insights into seminal events in American mob history, including: - The truth about Jimmy Hoffa’s disappearance - The murder of Jewish mob icon Bugsy Siegel - The identity of the man who created modern-day Las Vegas With the full cooperation of Natale, New York Daily News reporter Larry McShane and producer Dan Pearson uncover the deadly reign of the last great mob boss of Philadelphia, a tale that covers a half-century of mob lore—and gore.

Summary : The brilliant 1969 Hugo Award-winning novel from John Brunner, Stand on Zanzibar, now included with a foreword by Bruce Sterling Norman Niblock House is a rising executive at General Technics, one of a few all-powerful corporations. His work is leading General Technics to the forefront of global domination, both in the marketplace and politically---it's about to take over a country in Africa. Donald Hogan is his roommate, a seemingly sheepish bookworm. But Hogan is a spy, and he's about to discover a breakthrough in genetic engineering that will change the world...and kill him. These two men's lives weave through one of science fiction's most praised novels. Written in a way that echoes John Dos Passos' U.S.A. Trilogy, Stand on Zanzibar is a cross-section of a world overpopulated by the billions. Where society is squeezed into hive-living madness by god-like mega computers, mass-marketed psychedelic drugs, and mundane uses of genetic engineering. Though written in 1968, it speaks of now, and is frighteningly prescient and intensely powerful. At the Publisher's request, this title is being sold without Digital Rights Management Software (DRM) applied.

Summary : A couple determined not to end up like their divorced friends try a radical experiment--and get in way over their heads--in this hilarious, heartfelt novel from the author of We're All Damaged. "This warm and witty tale of a devoted couple willing to throw out that pesky 'forsaking all others' rule in order to stay together crackles with fierce energy and emotional truth."--Judy Blundell, New York Times bestselling author of The High Season The Core Four have been friends since college: four men, four women, four couples. They got married around the same time, had kids around the same time, and now, fifteen years later, they've started getting divorced around the same time, too. With three of the Core Four unions crumbling to dust around them, Jessica and Mitch Butler take a long, hard look at their own marriage. Can it be saved? Or is divorce, like some fortysomething zombie virus, simply inescapable? To maximize their chance at immunity, Jessica and Mitch try something radical. Their friends' divorces mostly had to do with sex--having it, not having it, wanting to have it with other people--so they decide to relax a few things. Terms are discussed, conditions are made, and together the Butlers embark on the great experiment of taking their otherwise happy, functional marriage and breaking some very serious rules. Jessica and Mitch are convinced they've hit upon the next evolution of marriage. But as lines are crossed and hot bartenders pursued, they each start to wonder if they've made a huge mistake. What follows is sexy, fun, painful, messy, and completely surprising to them both. Because sometimes doing something bad is the only way to get to the heart of what's really good.

Summary : “Full of astonishment . . . a kind of dark wonder.” —Pete Hamill VINCENT “CHIN” GIGANTE He started out as a professional boxer—until he found his true calling as a ruthless contract killer. Hand-picked by Vito Genovese to run the Genovese Family when Vito was sent to prison, Chin raked in more than $100 million for the Genovese family and routinely ordered the murders of mobsters who violated the Mafia code—including John Gotti. At the height of his power, he controlled an underworld empire of close to three hundred made men, making the Genovese Family the most powerful in the U.S. And yet Vincent “Chin” Gigante was, to all outside appearances, certifiably crazy. He wandered the streets of Greenwich Village in a ratty bathrobe and slippers. He urinated in public, played pinochle in storefronts, and hid a second family from his wife. On twenty-two occasions, he admitted himself to a mental hospital—evading criminal prosecution while insuring his continued reign as “The Oddfather.” It took nearly thirty years of endless psychiatric evaluations by a parade of puzzled doctors for federal authorities to finally bring him down. “A tale for the ages . . . grabs you with the immediacy of a breaking news story and carries you along as if you were living it.”—Michael Daly, The Daily Beast

Summary : The boss of New York's infamous Lucchese crime family, Anthony "Gaspipe" Casso's life in the Mafia was preordained from birth. His rare talent for "earning"—concocting ingenious schemes to hijack trucks, rob banks, and bring vast quantities of drugs into New York—fueled his unstoppable rise up the ladder of organized crime. A mafioso responsible for at least fifty murders, Casso lived large, with a beautiful wife and money to burn. When the law finally caught up with him in 1994, Casso became the thing he hated most—an informer. From his blood feud with John Gotti to his dealings with the "Mafia cops," decorated NYPD officers Lou Eppolito and Stephen Caracappa, to the Windows case, which marked the beginning of the end for the New York Mob, Gaspipe is Anthony Casso's shocking story—a roller-coaster ride into an exclusive netherworld that reveals the true inner workings of the Mafia, from its inception to the present time.

Summary : We are in trouble. Church attendance has dropped, spiritual life in our services has ebbed and we face a serious lack of people preparing for the ministry. Perhaps most alarming is that we have failed to reach or keep our youth. The Sunday school rooms and youth groups of many churches have no real hope or strategy in place to bring them in. Beyond this, dozens of churches close each week never to reopen, while just a few new ones are started. Without some real changes in these areas we will lose our Christian influence in this nation almost entirely in the very near future.Certianly God has not planned for the failure of His church.

Summary : Test your knowledge of the world's most notorious prison with this True or False book of Alcatraz history, spanning over 200 years! Learn of the Civil War period on the island when a Fortress stood on top. Discover how the Civil War Fortress eventually became a Military prison for defectors and uncooperative Native Americans of the day. Experience the secret prison of all prisons, where the worst of the worst were sent, Alcatraz Penitentiary, which kept the likes of Al Capone, Machine Gun Kelly and Robert Stroud (The Birdman of Alcatraz). When the island closed in 1963, it lay dormant, until an important political stand for the Native Americans helped paved the way for a people holding strong to their culture in the Indian Occupation. Today the island is part of the National Park Service and is home to a number of sea birds as they nest each year amongst the well-kept gardens of Alcatraz. As you test your knowledge of the island and its history you can also experience it first hand as you see it come alive with full-color 3-D photos, many of which will show you places even the public can't go. So settle back and see if you can gage your Alcatrivia and have fun peering through the prison in 3-D.

Summary : Nick Caramandi tells this mob tale-and tells it and tells it-first to the feds, bringing down the notorious Scarfo organization in Philadelphia, the most violent of the Mafia families; then to journalist-author George Anastasia, in blunt and bloody detail. As made guy turned informant, Caramandi was on the inside during Nicky Scarfo's rise to power-after longtime boss Angelo Bruno's demise-and throughout his ruthless reign, built on extortion, political corruption, and murder. Wherever money and power were to be had, Caramandi, as Scarfo's go-between and enforcer, was there to get it for him. Any romantic notions of a "code of honor" fall by the wayside on reading this firsthand account of violence unleashed. Caramandi's testimony resulted in more than fifty convictions and launched wide-ranging investigations into the broader Mafia underworld. A prime target for hit men, he manages to survive only under the government's Federal Witness Protection Program, while Scarfo and many of his associates spend the rest of their years behind bars.

Summary : We decided this book should be written to tell the truth about defoliating the Korean Demilitarized Zone during 1968 to 1970, which left a deadly legacy of toxic chemicals affecting the health of U.S. soldiers, their counterparts in the Korean Augmentation to the U.S. Army (KATUSA), the First Republic of Korea Army (FROKA), and Korean civilians for years to come. The lies, conspiracies, and collusion between the chemical companies and the U.S. Department of Defense and Veterans Affairs continue to this day as compensation claims and pensions by veterans of the Korean DMZ are delayed and denied until the applicants die. Congress has historically acted disparagingly towards all soldiers who were exposed to Agent Orange and other toxic defoliants while serving in theaters outside of Vietnam--that needs to stop.

His dreams and wonders take him through a magical land of creatures - Feathers, Shells, Fins, and others - as he seeks out the dread Magistrate, who seems to be the keeper of the land.

Summary : 2nd Edition on higher quality interior paper. In the 1960s the Southern Region offered three local Area Rail Rovers each valid for a day within a defined area at a cost of 10 shillings (50p today). To us hard up youngsters these tickets were too good to miss and the Area 2 Rover in particular was a big attraction as it covered the South Western main line from Waterloo to Woking as well as the Guildford to Redhill line, the latter being 100% steam worked until the end of 1964. The line from Waterloo of course carried the steam hauled trains from Waterloo to Basingstoke, Salisbury and Southampton and beyond, many of which stopped at Woking and so were ideal for us ardent train bashers. I have lost track of how many of these tickets I bought but a dozen survive in my ticket collection spanning the years from 1960 to 1964. The tickets I bought in the spring of 1964 were mainly to time the train running of steam hauled trains into and out of Waterloo and to photograph them on the main line as far as Woking whilst it was still almost entirely a steam worked main line. This little book tells the story of those day trips. These days out wetted my appetite to seek out loco performance further afield, which I had already been sampling since 1961 anyway and the full story of the last few years of Southern steam is told in my book ''Southern Steam Twilight''-The Untold Story'', to be published by Pen & Sword. This little book of 48 pages, size 8 x 10 inches contains 38 train running logs, descriptive text and 37 black and white images. This is the revised edition using higher quality paper compared to the first edition.

Summary : Sixteen-year-old Max and 10-year-old Tessa were fully prepared for another horrible summer vacation. While they always hoped to go somewhere fun like Disney World or Universal Studios, they usually went somewhere weird and cheap that their father, former boy bander Don Masters, found in an ad in a truck stop coupon magazine. But this year was different. Where they went couldn't be found on any map or in any truck stop coupon book. They passed through a portal to a place called Turtle Island, an alternate version of America that diverged from our history before the pilgrims landed at Plymouth Rock. It was there where they met world famous action movie star Jordie Paine -- star of such films as I Plan to Kill You Now and the sequel, I Plan to Kill You Now, Too, the ninja film, Chuck Butcher: Sword Wielding Jackal, as well as the light-hearted romp, Harry Hinklehoffer and the Giant Dancing Toad of East Nebraska -- who would be their guide in this strange new world. Jordie, they later learned, brought the Masters family to Turtle Island for a very specific reason. Because they look just like the ruthless first family of Turtle Island, the Masters are pawns in a coup to overthrow the dictator. But things don't go as planned and the Masters wind up in the Survival Games, Turtle Island's national pastime/system of justice where criminals competitors, or crimpetitors, compete for their freedom. In this scifi comedy, the stakes are very simple -- if they win, they rule, if they lose, they must suffer the consequences.
