Censorship Now!! essays by Ian F. Svenonius

In this outrageous and hilarious new essay collection, underground music icon Ian F. Svenonius tackles such diverse subjects as IKEA, Apple, the weather, the gentrification of punk by indie rock, Marion Barry, the film Heathers, Christian pornography, vampires, hoarding, the role of sugar in empire-building, how to properly tip at restaurants, the return of the hat in men’s fashion, and other highly topical matters. No one is left unscathed, and more than a few will be left scratching their heads even as they laugh.

Sunfail a thriller by Steven Savile

“Frighteningly realistic…With fast-paced action, awesome fight scenes (one between two brilliant female assassins is particularly well done), relatable heroes, and just the right balance between intrigue and plot twists, Sunfail is a fun and exciting read with a wide appeal perfect for fans of complex series heroes like Jack Reacher and Joe Ledger, with a dash of Dan Brown sensibility.”—Booklist

Dogs howl in the streets, running wild. Birds fall dead from the sky. Even the sun itself is failing. As darkness descends all hell breaks loose and terrorists strike hard and fast, taking out the army base at Fort Hamilton, Brooklyn, leaving Manhattan vulnerable. Jake Carter is a New York City subway electrician and former Special Forces operative. When he finds two young men spraying graffiti across subway station walls, he realizes their marks aren’t gang tags or band names: they are a message, a call to arms spelled out in a lost language. The Hidden are communicating with each other. The end of the world has arrived, and it’s being orchestrated by those unseen—for profit. Carter finds himself dragged into a world of conspiracy and menace, and must answer some impossible questions: How do you fight an enemy you cannot see? How do you defeat ghosts? How do you stop some of the richest and most powerful men in the world when they own the shadows? And most important of all, how do you stay alive when the world around you is dying?

Buffalo Noir edited by Ed Park and Brigid Hughes
