Dark Horses and Black Beauties: Animals, Women, a Passion

by Melissa Holbrook Pierson

"Thought-provoking.... A lovely testament to horses and women from all walks of life."--Karen Stone, Chicago Tribune In a phenomenon too prevalent to be mere chance, little girls all over the Western world wake one day to find themselves completely taken over by the love of all things equine. Melissa Holbrook Pierson was one of those horse-crazy girls who later returned to riding with a new appreciation for the nature of horses. Melding memoir, sociology, history, anecdote, and a bit of prose poetry, Dark Horses and Black Beauties delves beneath the shallow hypotheses explaining women's connection to horses to look at how this communication with another animal opens us up to a new apprehension of the larger "natural" world. "A fearless book: unflinching, honest, and kind."--Village Voice "The play of her mind...is subtle and quick; coltish, one wants to say, and one would be right."--The New York Times, Richard Bernstein "So beautifully written that it instantly captivates."--Newark Star-Ledger "She muses to deep and lyrical effect in her new collection of slender and delicate essays on horses and women."--Richard Bernstein, The New York Times "A meditation intended to dispel those tiresome Freudian theories aimed at the universal fascination women seem to have with horses."--The New York Times Book Review, Jillian Dunham "A fearless book: unflinching, earnest, and kind."--Village Voice, Emily Jenkins "This is a poignant, charming, and realistic book."--Maxine Kumin "Whoever likes animals will love this book, and better yet, whoever seeks to fathom the mysterious relationships between ourselves and other species will be transported."--Elizabeth Marshall Thomas, author of The Hidden Life of Dogs "As passionate as it is informative....Rich in history, romance, and charm, Pierson's devotion to horses is always engaging, and most of all, moving."--Brenda Peterson, co-editor of Intimate Nature: The Bond Between Women and Animals "Pierson's...writing...is well suited to her subject, containing bits of breathless enthusiasm one moment and peaceful contemplation the next."--Publishers Weekly

Since the demise of their leader, vampires have threatened to take over the peaceful town of Frombleton, brazenly roaming the streets while mingling with society and feeding on humans. And if that's not bad enough, a zombie outbreak that was isolated to a separate rural area is slowly creeping toward the city, leaving a trail of ravaged corpses in its wake. Hundreds of miles away at Stoneham Academy, Holland Manning is learning the ancient art of witchcraft and practicing her emerging occult powers. After discarding her nerdy girl image, Holland is finally well liked and admired for the first time in her life, but she's finding it difficult to enjoy her newfound popularity when she's aching for her true love, Jonas. A soul-stealing hex has forced Jonas to return to his homeland in search of a cure, and Holland is eagerly waiting to find out if his humanity has been restored. Chilling and suspenseful, The Dark Hunger recounts the horrors of humans living among the undead--and the uncertainty of forbidden love amidst sinister forces.

The Dark Intruder

by Marion Zimmer Bradley

Xanadu. Not the Xanadu of Coleridge's poem, but-to the half-forgotten space drifter who discovered the place thirty years ago-a reasonable facsimile. It was a cloistered nun of a city, hidden behind a wide skirt of the most impassable mountains on Mars. And the city was more impassable than the mountains. No human being had ever entered it-yet. They'd tried. Two expeditions, twelve years apart, had vanished without trace, without explanation other than the dusty notebook Andrew had unearthed, today, from the rotted shreds of a skeleton's clothing.

Dark Invasion

by Howard Blum

What happens when German spies collaborate to unleash a campaign of terror upon America at the start of World War I?In the summer of 1914, New York Police Department captain Tom Tunney is preoccupied by Manhattan's raging gang rivalries and has little idea that, halfway around the world, a much more ominous threat to the city is brewing. As Germany teeters on the brink of war, its ambassador to the United States is given instructions to find and finance a team of undercover saboteurs who can bring America to its knees before it has a chance to enter the conflict on the side of the Allies.At the page-turning pace of a spy thriller, Dark Invasion tells the remarkable true story of Tunney and his pivotal role in discovering, and delivering to justice, a ruthless ring of German terrorists determined to annihilate the United States. Overwhelmed and undermatched, Tunney's small squad of cops was the David to Germany's Goliath, the operatives of which included military officers, a germ warfare expert, a gifted Harvard professor, a bomb technician, and a document forger. As explosions leveled munitions plants and destroyed cargo ships, particularly in and around New York City, pan- icked officials talked about rogue activists and anarchists--but it was Tunney who suspected that these incidents were part of something bigger and became determined to bring down the culprits.Through meticulous research, Blum deftly reconstructs an enthralling, vividly detailed saga of subterfuge and bravery. Enhanced by more than fifty images sourced from global archives, his gritty, energetic narrative follows the German spies--with Tunney hot on their heels--from the streets, harbors, and warehouses of New York City to the genteel quads of Harvard, the grand estates of industry tycoons, and the steps of the U.S. Capitol. The New York Police Department's breathtaking efforts to unravel the extent of the German plot and close in on its perpetrators are revealed in this riveting account of America's first encounter with a national security threat unlike any other--the threat of terrorism--that is more relevant now than ever.

Dark Justice

by William Bernhardt

With his nine dazzling Ben Kincaid novels, author William Bernhardt has drawn acclaim as a master of the courtroom drama who "throws in just enough plot twists to foil most armchair detectives" (the Associated Press). Now, in Dark Justice, the winner of the Oklahoma Book Award continues to do exceptional justice to the legal thriller. Suffering from courtroom burnout, Ben Kincaid hopes to leave trials and the tribulations of a lawyer's life behind in Tulsa as he sets out for some much-needed R and R in the picturesque Pacific Northwest. But Ben's blissful getaway becomes a busman's holiday in the small town of Magic Valley, where a pitched battle between the local logging industry and crusading conservationists has led to brutal murder. Years earlier, professional activist George Zakin was successfully defended against a charge of murder by a fledgling attorney named Ben Kincaid. Now, accused of viciously killing a lumberjack, Zakin is counting on Ben to duplicate that long-ago courtroom coup and save his neck a second time. Ben has no doubt that his client is innocent, but in a town where logging is a way of life, and save-the-trees advocates are branded "eco-terrorists," he knows winning the case will be an uphill fight. It doesn't help that Ben's opponent is Rebecca Granville "Granny" Adams, a homegrown prosecutor with a reputation for being as ruthless as she is ravishing. With the odds stacked against him, Ben walks into a war zone in the courtroom . . . and a potential killing field in the streets and woods of Magic Valley, an explosive place where allies and enemies are hard to tell apart--and digging for the truth is as good as digging your grave. Laced with sly wit and loaded with surprising twists, Dark Justice makes another ironclad case for bestselling author William Bernhardt's skills as a master of the brilliantly plotted, stunningly suspenseful legal thriller.
