Paura e delirio a LasHogwarts: a destabilizzare una scuola di magia già problematica, tra i nuovi studenti di quest'anno ci sono dei tipi fuori dal comune: l'aspirante rapper Jerry Porker, il goffo Ronaldo Whiskey, la precisina Ermagone, l'iracondo e razzista Draco Adolfoy e, soprattutto, lo psicopatico assetato di sangue Nevillo Paciockone e Gustav Lafav, bulletto di origine messicane che non si sa bene cosa ci faccia là. Tra i bizzarri discorsi dell'eccentrico Preside Stilente, l’esibizionismo di Swagrid, i freestyle del Professor Rap-Thor e le battute agghiaccianti dell'enigmatico Professor Pitone, i giovani maghi si addentreranno nella fitta rete di misteri di LasHogwarts, tra una sbronza colossale, uno sparatoria con armi pesanti e un giro di spaccio di metanfetamina blu pura al 100%. Chi poteva pensare a una parodia demenziale di "Harry Potter e la Pietra Filosofale" se non Rinald Sefa e Luca Gariboldi, gli amministratori della famigerata pagina Facebook "L'Umorismo di Piton"? Se avete amato Harry Potter e le parolacce non vi danno fastidio, "Gustav Lafav - Uno studente dimenticato" è il libro che fa per voi.

This debut ghostly romance, set at a sinister boarding school, is “spooky, sexy, strange, and shocking,” says Printz and National Book Award finalist E. Lockhart.

Including Malcolm Astor, a legacy student with his own art obsession. Liv’s defenses melt, despite warnings from fellow scholarship kid Gabe Nichols not to get involved with Malcom. But her bliss is doomed; weeks after arriving, Liv is viciously murdered. Gabe, the only one who can see her, is now her sole link to the world of the living. Together, Liv, Gabe, and Malcolm fight to expose the terrible truth that haunts the halls of Wickham. From the Hardcover edition.

Her country is surrounded by enemies and the only way she can save it is by embracing her heritage and practicing the magic of the undead. But how can she when, as a girl, magic is forbidden to her? Just when it looks like Lily will have to leave her home forever, Thorn arrives at Castle Gloom. A sudden death brings them together, inspires them to break the rules, and leads them to soar to new heights in this fantasy with all the sparkle and luster of a starry night sky

One of America’s leading humorists and author of the bestseller Closing Time examines his own obsession with books Joe Queenan became a voracious reader as a means of escape from a joyless childhood in a Philadelphia housing project. In the years since then he has dedicated himself to an assortment of idiosyncratic reading challenges: spending a year reading only short books, spending a year reading books he always suspected he would hate, spending a year reading books he picked with his eyes closed. In One for the Books, Queenan tries to come to terms with his own eccentric reading style—how many more books will he have time to read in his lifetime? Why does he refuse to read books hailed by reviewers as “astonishing”? Why does he refuse to lend out books? Will he ever buy an e-book? Why does he habitually read thirty to forty books simultaneously? Why are there so many people to whom the above questions do not even matter—and what do they read? Acerbically funny yet passionate and oddly affectionate, One for the Books is a reading experience that true book lovers will find unforgettable.

Following a major pandemic, the country is in ruins. West of the Mississippi River is a hellzone known as the Deadlands. Here, bioengineered Corpse Worms rain from the blood-streaked sky, reanimating the dead. And here, atomic weapons have created legions of mutants, primeval monsters, and wild chaotic weather patterns. Enter: John Slaughter. Hardcore outlaw biker. Blood member of the Devil's Disciples. A very wanted man. Captured by the army, the feds want him to lead a gang of his old bikers across the Mississippi and into the nuclear wastes of the Deadlands. His objective: Snatch a high-level biologist who is being held at an old NORAD fortress by a paramilitary terrorist group. It will mean a raid into territory swarming with the living dead, mutations, and sects of psychotic survivalists...not to mention the Cannibal Corpse motorcycle club, blood enemies of the Devil’s Disciples. His incentive: his brother is being held at a federal prison back east on charges of sedition. If Slaughter does not bring back the biologist, his brother will be executed. The drawback: An ancient, diabolic evil has claimed the Deadlands and is in league with Cannibal Corpse. And unless Slaughter can stop it, it will pick its teeth with the last bones of the human race.

Pomfret Towers, Barsetshire seat of the earls of Pomfret, was constructed, with great pomp and want of concern for creature comforts, in the once-fashionable style of Sir Gilbert Scott's St Pancras station. It makes a grand setting for a house party at which gamine Alice Barton and her brother Guy are honoured guests, mixing with the headstrong Rivers family, the tally-ho Wicklows and, most charming of all, Giles Foster, nephew and heir of the present Lord Pomfret. But whose hand will Mr Foster seek in marriage, and who will win Alice's tender heart? Angela Thirkell's classic 1930s comedy is lively, witty and deliciously diverting.
