Max always thought going on an adventure would be fun; he had read about them in stories his entire life. He didn't expect the danger or terror of actually going on one to be so complete. Now Max finds he is far from home, in a land filled with fairies and dragons, dwarves and robots. The Emperor of the mighty Imperium hunts him for unknown reasons, a powerful and ancient witch bargains for his immortal soul, and a talkative, southern-gentleman cat bosses him around, but all Max wants is to go home. In the end, Max will have a choice to make; to run away, like he always does, or to stand and fight for those who need him. No matter what he does, no matter how far he runs, for better or worse, Maximus Wyatt Goodspeed is: Chosen By Song. By Matthew Medsger Illustrated by John Corey Luebbers Chosen By Song is the first part of the Saga of Song.

The singer tells her story from Scottish childhood to success on the Greenwich Village folk scene and beyond, and shares her passion for traditional music. Jean Redpath is best remembered for her impressive repertoire of ancient ballads, Robert Burns songs, and contemporary folk music, recorded and performed over a career spanning some fifty years. In this book, Mark Brownrigg captures Redpath’s idiosyncratic and often humorous voice through his interviews with her during the last eighteen months of her life. Here Redpath reflects on her humble beginnings, her Scottish heritage, her life’s journey, and her mission of preserving, performing, and teaching traditional song. A native of Edinburgh, Redpath was raised in a family of singers of traditional Scots songs. She broadened her knowledge through work with the Edinburgh Folk Society and Scottish studies at Edinburgh University, but prior to graduation, she abandoned academia to follow her passion of singing. Her independent spirit took her to the United States, where she found commercial success amid the Greenwich Village folk-music revival in New York in the 1960s—and shared a house and concert stages with Bob Dylan and Ramblin’ Jack Elliott. Soon a rave review in the New York Times launched her career and led to wide recognition as a true voice of traditional Scottish songs. As a regular on Garrison Keillor’s A Prairie Home Companion and a guest on Late Show with David Letterman, Redpath endeared herself to millions with her soft melodies and amusing tales—and her extraordinary career and extensive knowledge of traditional Scottish music history earned her prestigious university appointments, a performance for Queen Elizabeth II, and induction into the Scottish Traditional Music Hall of Fame. This is her remarkable story.

The one-hit wonder has a long and storied history in popular music, exhorting listeners to dance, to teach the world to sing in perfect harmony, to ponder mortality, to get a job, to bask in the sunshine, or just to get up and dance again. Catchy, memorable, irritating, or simply ubiquitous, one-hit wonders capture something of the mood of a time. This collection provides a series of short, sharp chapters focusing on one-hit wonders from the 1950s to the present day, with a view toward understanding both the mechanics of success and the socio-musical contexts within which such songs became hits. Some artists included here might have aspired to success but only managed one hit, while others enjoyed lengthy, if unremarkable, careers after their initial chart success. Put together, these chapters provide not only a capsule history of popular music tastes, but also ruminations on the changing nature of the music industry and the mechanics of fame.

Trapped in a loveless marriage, April Nightsong longs for the China she once knew as a child, and for her forbidden lover, David McNair. When the lovers find themselves together in Paris, they set out together for China, unaware of the half-sister that awaits April there--or the evil that threatens to destroy the two lovers. Meanwhile, back in the United States, despite a surface existence of power and wealth, Lydia Nightsong, April's mother, suffers anguish and terror at the never-ending threats to her cosmetics empire and her life. The only man who can save her is her sworn enemy, the one she has vowed to avenge--the one she hopelessly loves with a love they once lost in the shadow of a nightsong. Book Two in the Nightsong Saga--a dynasty driven by lust and passion, a daughter forever marked by her mother's sin. Great historical romance by a master storyteller!
