Dateline: Toronto collects all 172 pieces that Hemingway published in the Star, including those under pseudonyms. Hemingway readers will discern his unique voice already present in many of these pieces, particularly his knack for dialogue. It is also fascinating to discover early reportorial accounts of events and subjects that figure in his later fiction. As William White points out in his introduction to this work, "Much of it, over sixty years later, can still be read both as a record of the early twenties and as evidence of how Ernest Hemingway learned the craft of writing." The enthusiasm, wit, and skill with which these pieces were written guarantee that Dateline: Toronto will be read for pleasure, as excellent journalism, and for the insights it gives to Hemingway's works.

If she thinks really hard. Samantha Shaw can remember a time when she believed in true love. When buying Heart Mates--the dating service her now-deceased, condom-selling husband did business with--seemed like the right thing to do. When she thought bringing lonely hearts together would go a long way toward mending her own broken one. Now she's thinking, Only fools fall in love. For her romantic reveries ended the day she found a stash of sexy panties--each with a Post-It note rating the wearer--hidden in her dead husband's car. The startling discovery left the disheartened Sam with one question: What else was the cheating creep hiding? Try an illegal drug trade--and a whole lot of money. That's just some of the scum that surfaces after a man walks into Heart Mates and threatens to kill her--and her kids--if she doesn't come up with the money her spouse stole. On that disturbing note, Sam decides it's time to really get down to business. Inspired by the savvy heroines of the romance novels she reviews as a hobby, she comes up with a catchy new slogan ("Get Hot With Heart Mates"), buys some sexy new outfits, and sets out to make Heart Mates the hottest dating service in town--all while trying to keep her mind off Gabe Pulizzi, the mouth-watering P.I. helping her track down the thug who threatened her. Trouble is, when she finally finds him, he's very much dead--and it's clear that someone is deadly serious about getting the money she doesn't have. It's enough to make most women start shaking in their stilettos. Not Sam. She's got a business to run, missing money to find, and a life to save ... her own.

Wollie Shelley, the plucky amateur sleuth Kirkus Reviews called "funny, brave, smart, and altogether the fetchingest crime heroine since the early Stephanie Plum," returns to face suspect lovers and unlovable suspects in this hilarious sequel to Dating Dead Men. Wollie Shelley is a greeting card artist struggling to keep afloat financially and to pursue--despite a series of recent disasters--the search for the love of her life. She reluctantly agrees to be a contestant on the reality television show Biological Clock. The show's premise: Six eligible singles date each other, and the audience votes on which couple would make the best parents. Alas, Wollie isn't having much luck finding a man she'd like to date "off the air," much less father her child. As her own biological clock ticks away, Wollie gets caught up in a much more pressing demand on her time. Her friend Annika has vanished into thin air, and Wollie is convinced that she's in grave danger. When Wollie reports the disappearance to the Los Angeles Police Department, however, the detective assigned to the case seems more interested in dating Wollie than in finding her friend.

She soon finds herself being stalked by an assortment of threatening characters, including her fellow television contestants, who will stop at nothing to beat the clock. With Dating Is Murder, Kozak delivers another sparkling treasure, a laugh-out-loud-funny, literate mystery for readers of Janet Evanovich and Sue Grafton and for Kozak's own growing legion of fans.

The date of Beowulf, debated for almost a century, is a small question with large consequences. Does the poem provide us with an accurate if idealized view of early Germanic culture? Or is it rather a creature of nostalgia and imagination, born of the desire of a later age to create for itself a glorious past? If we cannot decide when, between the 5th and 11th centuries, the poem was composed, we cannot distinguish what elements in Beowulf belong properly to the history of material culture, to the history of myth and legend, to political history, or to the development of the English literary imagination.This book represents both individual and concerted attempts to deal with this important question, and presents one of the most important inconclusions in the study of Old English. The contributors raise so many doubts, turn up so much new and disturbing information, dismantle so many long-accepted scholarly constructs that Beowulf studies will never be the same: henceforth every discussion of the poem and its period will begin with reference to this volume.
