Summer of Shadows is an intertwining narrative that tells the story of the 1954 Cleveland Indians (which would etch itself in history as one of the greatest baseball teams in MLB history) and the infamous murder of the wife of Dr. Sam Sheppard in their home along the shore of Lake Erie--which held both the city and the nation spellbound that summer. Both of these generation-defining stories take place in the final days of the "Best Location in the Nation," the nickname for the Cleveland of the 1950s, which truly was one of the great and most influential cities in America. The Sheppard case would influence the television series The Fugitive a decade later and give Cleveland's reputation a black eye following the shoddy and unethical behavior of the city's police department and news media, which led to the conviction of an innocent man. Meanwhile, the 1954 Indians would post the greatest season in American League history and dethrone the five-time-champion New York Yankees in a dramatic pennant race, culminating in a September doubleheader before 86,000 fans at Cleveland Stadium. The powerful Indians would then be swept by Willie Mays and the New York Giants in the World Series. These two parallel tragedies harbinger an onslaught of adversity that dragged Cleveland from its lofty standing as a leading American city to one with a bleak--even comic--reputation. Summer of Shadows is essentially a postcard from that gilded age, when the city enjoyed its own golden October, not knowing that decades of dismal, bitter winter lay ahead.

Evil in the Shadows is a thriller that will have readers on the edge of their seats. The suspenseful nature and psychologically-intriguing story line will make it a difficult book to put down. The novel has exciting, mystifying, as well as very creepy elements - combining a thriller, horror and crime story all together. This masterfully-worded work of fiction cleverly intermingles and intertwines all of these complicated elements. It is the story of Scott Robert Falcon Parker, who is a thoroughly-evil protagonist. He was born that way and only becomes worse as we witness, first-hand, his notorious life and hideous deeds. It is about the good and evil in the world. It shows so many underlying things just below the surface of people that one never sees or even thinks can be imagined. The protagonists actions will certainly shock and perhaps, at times, even make the readers jaw drop. A thriller such as this has not been written in a long time. It is overdue. Hints and glimpses of black art, voodoo, demonology, gothic mystique, creepy horror and young, teenage girls worst nightmares are all captured in this unforgettable, haunting novel.

In Pursuit of Poem Shadows: Pureza Canelo's Second Poetics deciphers the intricate poetic language of Pureza Canelo (Spain, 1946) through a close analysis of her mature works. Designed to complement Nature's Colloquy with the Word (Bucknell, 2004), the current text traces concerns related to the poet's second stage of evolvement. In contextualizing the poet's work, Pritchett discovers commonalities with Romantic, Modernist, and creacionista poets. Canelo's insights, moreover, display a resemblance to Heidegger's thought on time, being, and poetry, Lacan's ideas on experience and language, and 3iyek's view of the subject's relationship to the object.

“An extraordinary novel sure to enchant readers of Sarah Waters as well as those looking for a thrilling and transporting gothic tale.” —Julia Fierro, author of The Gypsy Moth Summer The author of The Man Who Noticed Everything, an award-winning collection of short stories, presents his debut work of full-length fiction, “a witty and disturbing horror novel . . . as if Henry James had written an issue of Tales from the Crypt” (Bennett Sims, author of A Questionable Shape). Loosely based on the lives of spirit photographer William H. Mumler and his wife, Shadows in Summerland transports readers to 1859 Boston, where those who promise access to the otherworldly—mediums, spiritualists, and psychics—are celebrated. This embrace of illusion and intrigue provides the perfect hunting ground for con artists and charlatans—men like William Mumler. When William teams up with Hannah, a shy young girl who sees and manifests the dead, they are welcomed into the drawing rooms of the city’s elite. But the couple’s newfound fame and fortune draw grifters and rogues into their circle, including someone who will bring the afterlife closer to them than they could ever imagine. Spanning three decades, Shadows in Summerland “recalls an era no less gullible than the present one . . . Van Young’s prose skillfully illuminates his gothic tale of greed, obsession, and murder” (Publishers Weekly). “A fabulous and weird addition to the contemporary fantastic.” —Laird Barron, author of Black Mountain

In the shadows of WWII, Tall Jerry and his friends begin the 1953 summer vacation looking for adventure. Young adults in the '50's were expected to work summers. Farm chores or summer jobs. Jerry and his friends were no exception. With no internet or cell phones and very few televisions in the day, they relied on their own imaginations to entertain themselves when they weren't working. They are to be high school freshman in the fall and that was exciting enough - but when the rumors began, their summer took a turn. Rumors of the long since forgotten Nazis POW's who had escaped upstate New York's Pine Camp's military brig back during the war. Still on the loose, it would seem, eight years later. As evidence and facts are gathered, stumbled into and tripped over, summer adventure shows promise. Rumor is they even get the ear of 'Ike'. The scuttlebutt was that President Eisenhower personally helped them develop a strategy. If that is true, Tall Jerry and his friends aren't talking.

Trees are ideal sources of shade; where they cannot be used, their function is taken over by tents, pergolas, and pavilions. In the context of global warming, shade-providing construction is becoming an increasingly important building task. In Part One of this book, specialists in the field present the typical forms of shade-providing construction as well as the design approach associated with each. Part Two presents easily consultable overviews of 140 plants that have proven to be effective givers of shade in temperate, subtropical, and tropical zones. Part Three presents thirty built projects by celebrated architects and landscape architects from five continents. These constructions illustrate a wide variety of functions and scales and cover various climatic zones and cultural contexts. All structures are constructionally and systematically analyzed with texts, true-to-scale drawings, and photographs from their foundations to their connections and the shadows they cast.
