Who is this woman who sang the megahit "Hound Dog" before Elvis Presley and who wrote "Ball & Chain," the song that catapulted Janis Joplin to sudden fame? The story begins with her first musical attempts in the Hot Harlem Revue as a girl of 14. Then the book follows her journey into the Mecca of Texas Blues, Houston, where Big Mama Thornton met Johnny Otis, with whom she recorded her greatest success--"Hound Dog." With the slowdown of the blues in the early sixties this book follows Big Mama Thornton's way to California, discusses her struggle to survive and celebrates her impressive musical comeback in the course of the blues revival and the hippie movement. With the end of the sixties, facing a declining interest in the old school blues, the book shows how Big Mama Thornton found her niche in clubs and festivals in the U.S. and Europe. The book then follows Big Mama Thornton through the seventies and eighties until her untimely death.

How the Beatles Destroyed Rock 'n' Roll is an alternative history of American music that, instead of recycling the familiar cliches of jazz and rock, looks at what people were playing, hearing and dancing to over the course of the 20th century, using a wealth of original research, curious quotations, and an irreverent fascination with the oft-despised commercial mainstream.

The book, Alfie and Papa’s Other Boys, is the fourth in a series which began with ‘Alfie’s Story, Little Boy Growing Up.’ After that the exciting story of ‘Alfie and the Moonshiners.’ Next came ‘And the Rest of Alfie’s Story.’ I really thought that was the rest of the story. It wasn’t. Now we have these tales, beginning with Papa’s Missing Toe, and ending with ‘Tis a Mark of Distinction. There is not a dull moment in between these two fascinating pictures of Papa’s role in the lives of his four boys. Willie is the oldest, the “ring leader” in all their mischief, and the embodiment of primogeniture because Margaret died. There is Cliff. Gran’ma characterized him when she said “Give that boy a wheel and he will roll it off the edge of the world.” And Junior is Alfie’s nemesis; he is just enough bigger than Alfie to taunt him, and not bigger enough to control him. Lastly, there is Alfie, the Baby, impulsive, irrepressible and curious beyond belief. But always the Baby until the arrival of Jody, ten years late for this book of Alfie tales.

In the 1950s, the street boys of Singapore caught and bet on their wrestling spiders, gaining not only money but also power and prestige as they won. Backgrounded against age-old vices, superstitions, urban legends, as well as a dangerous world of youth gangs and a tumultuous period in Singapore’s history, Spider Boys is a moving and sensual story that draws the reader into turning its pages as if by a beguiling, hypnotic force, alternating arousing and repelling him. First published by Penguin, New Zealand, in 1995, Spider Boys has been re-edited to not only retain the flavour of colloquial Singapore English in the dialogues, but also improve the accessibility of the novel for all readers by rendering the narrative into grammatical Standard English.

An epic tale of war between dragons and mankind! When the mysterious dragon slayer Bitterwood murders the son of the Dragon-King, the dragons respond with a campaign of genocide against their human slaves. Amid the chaos of war, a band of rebel humans risk everything to fight for freedom, and an end to the Dragon Age. Read the saga that Orson Scott Card called “a magnificent hero story.” Bitterwood, the Complete Collection gathers together all four novels of the Bitterwood series, plus the prequel short story “Tornado of Sparks.” In May 2020, the ebook edition of the collection was expanded to include three bonus novellas, Hunted, Haunted, and Hurt, that had previously been collected as Dragonsgate: Preludes & Omens. The individual works: Tornado of Sparks: The dragon Vendevorex demonstrates his magical powers for the dragon-king Albekizan in a test that orphans a human infant. Can Vendevorex reunite the child with her only remaining family? Bitterwood: Dragons rule the world and humans serve as their slaves, pets, and prey, with only the mysterious dragon-slayer Bitterwood fighting the dominant dragons from the shadows. But when Bitterwood slays the beloved son of the dragon-king Albekizan, the dragons launch a war of extermination against all humans. Can mankind survive the combined might of the dragons? Dragonforge: As a war spreads throughout the dragon kingdom, a band of human rebels take over the armory of the dragon armies, the legendary Dragon Forge. As the dragon armies mass to take back the fortress, Bitterwood finds himself in the fight of his life, facing off against the most dangerous dragon of all: Blasphet. Dragonseed: With the dragon forces in disarray, the humans face their own woes as allies banded together to fight the dragons begin to take up arms against each other. With all of civilization on the verge of anarchy, can Bitterwood save the day by joining forces with his worst enemy—the sun-dragon Hex, the last surviving son of King Albekizan? Dawn of Dragons: 1000 years before Bitterwood, a man named Alex Pure gets disemboweled by a dragon. It’s the beginning of a beautiful friendship. Also, the apocalypse. The bonus Dragonsgate: Prelude and Omen novellas included in the ebook edition: Hunted: The sky-dragons Graxen and Nadala are trying to make a new home in a distant valley. With Nadala too pregnant to fly, Graxen must hunt for them to survive. But as he stalks his prey, something bigger and more dangerous than a dragon is stalking him. Haunted: Bitterwood has settled into the quiet life of a farmer. Then, dragons raid his henhouse, leading Bitterwood to a confrontation with his most dangerous adversary. Hurt: On a mission to recover a stolen shotgun, Anza faces off against the earth-dragon boss Bigmouth. But when she winds up shot by the very gun she came to retrieve, can she finish her mission before her injuries finish her? In praise of Bitterwood: “For the sake of humanity, join in Bitterwood’s revolt.” – Kirkus Reviews “A grabber from page one, a smart tale of adventure and revenge sprinkled with echoes of our own dangerous times. James Maxey’s world of dragons and humans at war is so solidly and engagingly rendered that I never wanted to leave.” – John Marco “Bitterwood is an unlikely hero in a rich world, with a rich history that holds many surprises. James Maxey tells his story with a sure hand. Enjoy the journey!” – Carrie Vaughn "Fine action and cool world building. Anne McCaffrey through a mirror darkly." – E. E. Knight “A magnificent hero story.” – Orson Scott Card

Winner of the Florida Writers Association 2004 Royal Palm Literary Award for the best unpublished novel of adult fiction for 2004-2005 "Watermelon Fall is well written, it is appealing to the romance reader, and it shows originality. But most of all, it is a beautiful story. Robert West is sure to capture the hearts of all who read this."-Barbara Casey, literary agent and author of Shyla's Initiative and The Coach's Wife"Once in a lifetime a novel like Watermelon Fall comes into your life and you are never the same again! Lifetimes are composed, compromised, ebbed, rip tided, and interwoven with all the experiences and people who encompass these rich woven tapestries of our lives and dreams. This is such a novel. Shakespeare had his 'Hatfield and McCoy' families and a mysterious potion that led to the demise of both young lovers in Romeo and Juliet; in Watermelon Fall we have 'one family' along with a social milieu, coupled with 'an act of God', that leads to the demise of our 'spring and fall' lovers. Watermelon Fall is an intense love story for fathers and daughters to cherish for a lifetime. Bravo, Bob West, for a love story, not a romance novel!"-Mickey Shaddock, professor of literature and language arts

In our galactic neighborhood, surveyors for the Federation of Intelligent Species determined that humans are a dangerous outlier race whose violent nature and rapidly developing technology will be destabilizing to their vast ancient culture. Following an established species extinction plan, FIS agents installed mass drivers to guide large asteroid missiles toward Earth. In The Swordfish Island Covenant French Huguenots who experienced persecution under Louis XIV agreed to burden their descendants with defending Earth over three hundred years in the future. The Promise of Melusine is the fulfillment of that agreement. Hidden from the FIS, from other humans, and ignorant of what is happening in them, the people of Swordfish Island gradually transform. A teenage girl is the key to their activation. Lida lives in a Los Angeles suburb. She must discover her heritage and survive to find her people. Still, even if she succeeds can a hundred thousand amplified human beings have any significant impact against a culture of ten million worlds and four million space faring alien species?

"The reading experience of a lifetime ..."--The Washington Post The National Book Award winner takes readers inside the epic fighting retreat of the Nez Perce Indians In this new installment in his acclaimed series of novels examining the collisions between Native Americans and European colonizers, William T. Vollmann tells the story of the Nez Perce War, with flashbacks to the Civil War. Defrauded and intimidated at every turn, the Nez Perces finally went on the warpath in 1877, subjecting the U.S. Army to its greatest defeat since Little Big Horn as they fled from northeast Oregon across Montana to the Canadian border. Vollmann’s main character is not the legendary Chief Joseph, but his pursuer, General Oliver Otis Howard, the brave, shy, tormented, devoutly Christian Civil War veteran. In this novel, we see him as commander, father, son, husband, friend, and killer. Teeming with many vivid characters on both sides of the conflict, and written in an original style in which the printed page works as a stage with multiple layers of foreground and background, The Dying Grass is another mesmerizing achievement from one of the most ambitious writers of our time.
