OVERVIEW: The Snowman’s Children is a poignant, psychologically intense first novel that tells the story of an incident from one man’s childhood in the 1970s, when a serial killer called The Snowman stalked the streets of suburban Detroit. The incident, a result of good but woefully misguided juvenile intentions, forced his family to leave their home, and eventually forced him, at age twenty-nine, to return to his hometown in search of three old friends. Reminiscent of both To Kill a Mockingbird in its touching portrait of childhood, and the beautifully written brand of suspense that calls to mind Smilla’s Sense of Snow, The Snowman’s Children is an unusually controlled and original novel that establishes Hirshberg as an important new voice in American literature..

OVERVIEW: Most overviews of film are written from some high, sunlit mountaintop. In this first collection of Harlan Ellisons cinema criticism (with expanded, never-before-collected articles as well as an essay written especially for this volume) come from the darkened interiors of a thousand movie houses where this most peculiar of all Observers of the Passing Scene has spent much of his life. The view is guaranteed to make you grind your teeth in anger, nod your head in blessed agreement, and open your eyes in a manner of judging films that is definitely not plebeian. Harlan Ellisons love affair with movies is obvious. As an essayist, he has no equal; as a film critic he has no friends. Take care.

OVERVIEW: Jaded Americans can find some respite from incessant 2008 presidential campaigning with CAPITOL HELL, a snarky political satire whose premise is at once dark and hilarious. Artfully crossing the politicians in America s headlines with yesterday s schlock horror and science fiction movies, the startling duotone results will make some smile and some smile uncomfortably. Example: Vice President Dick Cheney is crossed with Dracula to form the aptly named Dickula, whose latest victim is Colin Powell. (On the card back Dickula is described as administering a fatal Colinoscopy.) The other 23 cards deliver similar political monsters on both sides of the aisle...
The recombinant DNA of current White House occupants, presidential aspirants from each party, pundits and others are mixed with classic horror and sci-fi flicks in the author s inky lab. Skin-crawling monstrosities result:
