Rarely has a debut crime novel inspired such widespread excitement. A born storyteller, Dr. Kathy Reichs walks in the steps of her heroine, Dr. Temperance Brennan.

Déjà Vu

by Lisa Childs

Alaina knows she's lived before. And that a sinister secret lies behind her death. The gifted hands of a handsome lover. A gleaming knife and blood-curdling screams for help. That was all Alaina remembered from her past life and the reason she investigated serial murders for the FBI...including her own. Reclusive writer Trent was her prime suspect. An empath barricaded in a fortress-like home, Trent included details in his books that mirrored the murders...and that no one could possibly know. But one look at Trent and Alaina recalled their passionate embraces. Then the murders began anew...

Deja Vu and the End of History

by David Broder Paolo Virno

Déjà vu, which doubles and confuses our experience of time, is a psychological phenomenon with peculiar relevance to our contemporary historical circumstances. From this starting point, the acclaimed Italian philosopher Paolo Virno examines the construct of memory, the passage of time, and the "end of history." Through thinkers such as Bergson, Kojève and Nietzsche, Virno shows how our perception of history can become suspended or paralysed, making the distinction between "before" and "after," cause and effect, seem derisory. In examining the way the experience of time becomes historical, Virno forms a radical new theory of historical temporality.From the Trade Paperback edition.

The Del Rey Book of Science Fiction and Fantasy

by Ellen Datlow

"Ellen Datlow is the queen of anthology editors in America.

In "Daltharee," World Fantasy Award-winning author Jeffrey Ford spins a chilling tale of a city in a bottle-and the demented genius who put it there. In "Sonny Liston Takes the Fall," John W. Campbell Award-winning author Elizabeth Bear pens a poignant and eerie requiem for the heavyweight forever associated with his controversial loss to Cassius Clay. From hot new writer Margo Lanagan comes "The Goosle," a dark, astonishing take on Hansel and Gretel. In the novella "Prisoners of the Action," Paul MccAuley and Kim Newman take a trip down a rabbit hole that leads to a Guantanamo-like prison whose inmates are not just illegal but extraterrestrial. Many of the writers you'll recognize. Others you may not. But one thing is certain: These stars of today and tomorrow demonstrate that the field of speculative fiction is not only alive and well-it's better than ever. From the Trade Paperback edition.

Delancey

by Molly Wizenberg

In this funny, frank, and tender new memoir, the author of the New York Times bestseller A Homemade Life and the blog Orangette recounts how opening a restaurant sparked the first crisis of her young marriage. When Molly Wizenberg married Brandon Pettit, he was a trained composer with a handful of offbeat interests: espresso machines, wooden boats, violin-building, and ice cream-making. So when Brandon decided to open a pizza restaurant, Molly was supportive--not because she wanted him to do it, but because the idea was so far-fetched that she didn't think he would. Before she knew it, he'd signed a lease on a space. The restaurant, Delancey, was going to be a reality, and all of Molly's assumptions about her marriage were about to change. Together they built Delancey: gutting and renovating the space on a cobbled-together budget, developing a menu, hiring staff, and passing inspections. Delancey became a success, and Molly tried to convince herself that she was happy in their new life until--in the heat and pressure of the restaurant kitchen--she realized that she hadn't been honest with herself or Brandon. With evocative photos by Molly and twenty new recipes for the kind of simple, delicious food that chefs eat at home, Delancey is a moving and honest account of two young people learning to give in and let go in order to grow together.

The Delaneys of Killaroo: Matilda, the Adventuress

by Iris Johansen

Love and danger collide in a treacherous place called Deadman's Ridge in this spellbinding tale from Iris Johansen. Descended from a long line of risk takers, Matilda Delaney lives for the thrill of the chase. She has come to Deadman's Ridge to find the legendary Black Flame opal. But a different excitement ignites when Matilda meets award-winning filmmaker Roman Gallagher. The passion he awakens is more intense than anything on the big screen . . . and a lot more dangerous than the quest for a long-lost treasure. Roman has come to the violence-plagued mining town to make his latest blockbuster, not to lust after a reckless, cinnamon-haired beauty who wears trouble like a second skin. Past heartache has taught him not to trust the powerful feelings that Matilda arouses. But he's getting closer to the point of no return. As man's greed and one irresistible woman lead him down a treacherous road, Roman has to choose: Walk away while he still can . . . or risk it all for the chance to finally slay his demons--and embrace a love beyond price. Includes a special message from the editor, as well as excerpts from other Loveswept titles.

Delay, Deny, Defend

by Feinman Jay M.

An expose of insurance injustice and a plan for consumers and lawmakers to fight it - Over the last two decades, insurance has become less of a safety net and more of a spider's web: sticky and complicated, designed to ensnare as much as to aid. Insurance companies now often try to delay payment of justified claims, deny payment altogether, and defend these actions by forcing claimants to enter litigation. Jay M. Feinman, a legal scholar and insurance expert, explains how these trends developed, how the government ought to fix the system, and what the rest of us can do to protect ourselves. He shows that the denial of valid claims is not occasional or accidental or the fault of a few bad employees. It's the result of an increasing and systematic focus on maximizing profits by major companies such as Allstate and State Farm. Citing dozens of stories of victims who were unfairly denied payment, Feinman explains how people can be more cautious when shopping for policies and what to do when pursuing a disputed claim. He also lays out a plan for the legal reforms needed to prevent future abuses. This exposé will help drive the discussion of this increasingly hot- button issue.

With a broken heart and no direction to speak of, Devin pounces on his first opportunity to skip town-an invitation to help run a summer theater in Colorado with his high-school sweetheart.Upon arrival, Devin is shoved into a torrential melodrama of barroom brawls, outrageous love triangles and the worst performance of Hedda Gabler ever produced. He is sucked into the action by myriad batty characters, including a maniacal political dramatist, an emaciated director riddled with d.t.'s and a bipolar actor whose luck-and money-are about to run out. All the while Devin must fumble through his own awkward attempts at love-and somehow manage to come out on the other side.Filled with poignancy, humor and eccentric revelations, The Delectable Mountains is a hilarious romp through the melodramatic tumult of growing up and falling in love.

The Delectable Negro

by E. Patrick Johnson Dwight Mcbride Justin A. Joyce Vincent Woodard

Winner of the 2015 LGBT Studies award presented by the Lambda Literary Foundation Scholars of US and transatlantic slavery have largely ignored or dismissed accusations that Black Americans were cannibalized. Vincent Woodard takes the enslaved person's claims of human consumption seriously, focusing on both the literal starvation of the slave and the tropes of cannibalism on the part of the slaveholder, and further draws attention to the ways in which Blacks experienced their consumption as a fundamentally homoerotic occurrence. The Delectable Negro explores these connections between homoeroticism, cannibalism, and cultures of consumption in the context of American literature and US slave culture. Utilizing many staples of African American literature and culture, such as the slave narratives of OlaudahEquiano, Harriet Jacobs, and Frederick Douglass, as well as other less circulated materials like James L. Smith's slave narrative, runaway slave advertisements, and numerous articles from Black newspapers published in the nineteenth century, Woodard traces the racial assumptions, political aspirations, gender codes, and philosophical frameworks that dictated both European and white American arousal towards Black males and hunger for Black male flesh. Woodard uses these texts to unpack how slaves struggled not only against social consumption, but also against endemic mechanisms of starvation and hunger designed to break them. He concludes with an examination of the controversial chain gang oral sex scene in Toni Morrison's Beloved, suggesting that even at the end of the twentieth and beginning of the twenty-first century, we are still at a loss for language with which to describe Black male hunger within a plantation culture of consumption.
