In January of 2007, three young stoners from Miami Beach won a $300 million Department of Defense contract to supply ammunition to the Afghanistan military. Incredibly, instead of fulfilling the order with high-quality arms, Efraim Diveroli and David Packouz bought cheap Communist-style surplus ammunition from Balkan gunrunners. The pair then secretly repackaged millions of rounds of shoddy Chinese ammunition and shipped it to Kabul.

Octopus is a real-life thriller that tells the inside story of a GBP300 million hedge fund fraud and the wild-goose chase through Europe by its drug-fuelled manager for a lucrative "secret market" beneath the financial market we all know. Sam Israel was a man who seemed to have it all. Born into one of the world's richest families, he founded his own hedge fund, promising his investors guaranteed profits. But, after suffering devastating losses and faking tax returns, Israel knew his real performance would soon be discovered. So when a former CIA-operative turned conman told him about a "secret market" run by the Federal Reserve, Israel bet his last $150 million of other people's money on a chance to make it all back. So began his crazy year-long adventure in a world populated by clandestine bankers, conspiracy theories, and gun-toting spooks issuing cryptic warnings about a mysterious cabal known only as the Octopus.

A French marmot sports fan! Middle grade book for 8-12 yrs 'Italy, here we come!' Magali is about to go further from her home than she has ever been before. She's going to cross the French border into Italy, and participate in a rock climbing event with her mates! The problem is: marmots don't rock climb. Neither do boar, deer, foxes, rabbits, weasels, hare, and hedgehogs, but that isn't stopping them. But, how exactly will they climb? Bruno The Italian Stag explains, 'It's Italy. There are no rules. You get up the rock any way you can.' Magali's team can't lose face to the arrogant deer team. Or the hedgehogs. They must win. So, what is their super game plan? And, why is she chosen to scale the wall when she's the fattest one out of all of them?! Dude, she's not too sure about this plan... Young readers will enjoy this middle grade fantasy adventure book set in the French Alps. There are animals of all sizes; chamois, foxes, boar, deer, rabbits, eagles, ibex, hedgehogs, owls, you name it, rock climbing at night! Each book can be read as an individual book or as part of the Dude Series. The books have British spelling. For ages 8-12 years. Dude's Gotta Snowboard (Book 1) Dude's Gotta River Raft (Book 2) Dude's Gotta Mountain Bike (Book 3) Dude's Gotta Paraglide (Book 4) Dude's Gotta Bobsleigh (Book 5) Dude's Gotta Rock Climb (Book 6) Dude's Gotta Paintball (Book 7) Dude's Gotta Wakeboard (Book 8 Final book in series) Question for the Author How did you come up with the character of Magali? 'You know, I really love the French Alps, and looking at all the animals that live in the mountains. I'm Australian, so I had never seen a marmot before moving to France. I worked one summer, for a kids summer camp, and part of my job was to take the children out on walks. We would go looking for marmots, all of us being very quiet, secretly sneaking up to the holes in the ground, where the entrances to the marmot burrows were. Of course, we would make too much noise and the marmots would disappear into their underground tunnels, but sometimes we were lucky and able to take photos. I think their underground homes took over my imagination, and before you knew it, I had a whole chapter book in my head, with Magali as the principal character!'

In this M/M homage to the classic novel, Valley of the Dolls, Lambda-winning author Ryan Fields introduces us to six gay men searching for love and fame in the celebrity-fueled worlds of Broadway and Hollywood. The wide-eyed lawyer Rush Goodwin abandons his quaint New England life for the bright lights of New York City, where he meets singers/actors Cody and Anderson, and their partners, who are all just as young and innocent as he is. When Rush meets his new boss, handsome lawyer Lance Sharp, it's love at first sight and the beginning of a turbulent affair. As fame and fortune knock on each of their doors, Rush and his friends each learn, in their own different ways, that nothing ever goes according to plan. They each find themselves seeking the comforts of drugs (nicknamed ‘dudes’ to those in the know) to deal with the stress of success, which leads to its own spiral down the proverbial rabbit hole of broken hearts and dreams. But sometimes, we learn from our mistakes, and Rush and Lance find themselves when they let go and follow their hearts.

In a book that is part memoir, part documentary and part fictional narrative, Richard Bevis follows an assortment of teenage "savages" as they descend on Yellowstone Park in 1957, looking for action (and each other) while working at a variety of jobs. Blending comedy and seriousness, *Dudes and Savages: The Resonance of Yellowstone* moves from geology to romance, from history to salesmanship, from mountain climbing to practical jokes on the hapless "dudes." The book traces the well-intentioned but blundering Mason Dixon from his setting off to his return home, and in its final chapters considers the impact that Yellowstone had on him and some other characters over the years. William Wordsworth wrote, There are in our existence spots of time, That with distinct pre-eminence retain A renovating virtue, whence our minds Are nourished and invisibly repaired. Mason wonders if that summer of 1957 among the bears and geysers could have been one of them.

A memoir of motorcycles and muscles, of obsession and grief, and of a young man who learned how to stay alive through literature. At just forty-seven years old, William Giraldi's father was killed in a horrific motorcycle crash while racing on a country road. This tragedy, which forever altered the young Giraldi and devastated his family, provides the pulse for The Hero's Body. In the tradition of Andre Dubus III's Townie, this is an investigation into three generations of men from the working-class town of Manville, New Jersey, including Giraldi's own forays into obsessive bodybuilding as a teenager desperate to be worthy of his family's pitiless, exacting codes of manhood. Lauded by The New Yorker for his 'unrelenting, perfectly paced prose,' Giraldi writes here with daring, searing honesty about the fragility and might of the American male. An unflinching memoir of luminous sorrow, a son's tale of a lost father and the ancient family strictures of extreme masculinity, The Hero's Body is a work of lasting beauty by one of our finest writers. 'One of the best memoirs I’ve read in years' - Financial Times 'Must reading, and not just for men' - Richard Russo 'A hearty, bittersweet familial chronicle of masculinity drawing on the underappreciated bond between fathers and sons'- Kirkus Reviews 'The Hero’s Body offers a wise and thoughtful personal narrative as well as an illuminating portrait of a seductive, if hazardous, American subculture...' - Wall Street Journal 'William Giraldi’s memoir . . . offers a brilliant anthropological excursion into a world few of us will ever penetrate . . . To an urban reader used to bookstores and cocktail parties, Giraldi’s Manville, N.J., is as exotic as the Kalahari. . . . Perceptive and eloquent' - Washington Post

In 5th Grade, you have to be totally mature and responsible. That’s why the Dudes are taking their wacky brand of humor to the school!
