Terri Molina Author- FORGET ME NOT

FORGET ME NOT

by Terri Molina

Six years.  Thirteen murders.  One connection.

To escape the pain of her past, Casey Martinez changed her name and moved across half a continent to pursue her dream of becoming a bestselling novelist.

Casey’s hard won peace is shattered when she receives the photographs of a grisly murder, and it becomes evident that a killer is stalking her.  Over the past six years, women who share an eerie similarity to Casey have been found raped and mutilated- each with the remains of Casey’s romance books by their side.  Haunted by the death of her mother twenty five years earlier, Casey reluctantly seeks refuge in the town she swore she would never return to- Rosehill, Texas.

Detective Scott Walker is assigned to protect Casey, and it’s no easy job dealing with the stubborn, independent woman who wants nothing to do with him.  But living in such close quarters leads to temptation neither can resist.  When Casey is attacked during a break-in, evidence points to a second stalker.  With the gruesome discovery of another body, it becomes a race against time to find the real killer before Casey becomes the next victim.

C. Robert Cargill Author- DREAMS AND SHADOW

DREAMS AND SHADOW

by C. Robert Cargill

Mysterious Galaxy Review

“Cargill, a longtime contributor to pop-culture website “Ain’t It Cool News,” adapts the rallying cry of local independent businesses, “Keep Austin Weird,” to a novel where things are indeed weird, in the darkly fantastic sense of the word.  Ewan is taken as an infant by the fairies.  The unhappy and resentful Knocks is the changling left in Ewan’s place.  A chance encounter with djinn leads Colby to become Ewan’s friend and champion.  As adults, Colby is a great magician, Ewan is a dissatisfied rock star wannabe, and both are the focus of unwanted attention by a host of magical creatures with varying motivations.

Recommended to fans of Bill Willingham’s FABLES, and other dark fantasy works where is doesn’t pay to become emotionally attached to any characters.” – Maryelizabeth

Harper Voyager, $24.99.  (March)

David Gilbert Author- LOVE AND STRUGGLE MY LIFE IN SDS, THE WEATHER UNDERGROUND, AND BEYOND

LOVE AND STRUGGLE  MY LIFE IN SDS, THE WEATHER UNDERGROUND, AND BEYOND

by David Gilbert    .   introduction by Boots Riley

“David’s is a unique and necessary voice forged in the growing American gulag, the underbelly of the ‘land of the free,’ offering a focused and unassailable critique as well as a vision of a world that could be but is not yet … a place of peace and love, joy and justice.”- Bill Ayers, author of FUGITIVE DAYS and TEACHING TOWARD FREEDOM

“Like many of his contemporaries, David Gilbert gambled his life on a vision of a more just and generous world.  His particular bet cost him the last three decades in prison, and whether or not you agree with his youthful decisions, you can be the beneficiary of his years of deep thought, reflection, and analysis on the reality we all share.  If there is any benefit to prison, what some refer to as ‘the involuntary monastery,’ it may well look like this book.  I urge you to read it.”- Peter Coyote, actor, author of SLEEPING WHERE I FALL

“This book should stimulate learning from our political prisoners, but more importantly it challenges us to work to free them, and in doing so take the best of our history forward.”- Susan Rosenberg, author of AN AMERICAN RADICAL

A nice Jewish boy from suburban Boston … hell, an Eagle Scout! … David Gilbert arrived at Columbia University just in time for the explosive ’60s.  From the early ant-Vietnam War protests to the founding of SDS, from the Columbia Strike to the tragedy of the Townhouse, Gilbert was on the scene: as organizer, theoretician, and above all, activist.  He was among the first militants who went underground to build the clandestine resistance and war and racism known as “Weatherman.”  And he was among the last to emerge, in captivity, after the disaster of the 1982 Brinks robbery, and attempted expropriation that resulted in four deaths and long prison terms.  In this extraordinary memoir, written from the maximum-security prison where he has lived for almost 30 years, David Gilbert tells the intensely person story of his own long March from liberal to radical to revolutionary.

Today a beloved and admired mentor to a new generation of activists, he assesses with rare humor, with an understanding stripped of illusions, and with uncommon candor the errors and advances, terrors and triumphs of the ’60s and beyond.  It’s a battle that was far from won, but is still not lost: the struggle to build a new world, and the love that drives that effort.   A cautionary tale and a how-to as well, LOVE AND STRUGGLE is a book as candid, as uncompromising, and as humane as its author.

A popular leader in the progressive struggle for radical change through culture, Boots Riley is best known as the leader of The Coup, the seminal hip-hop group from Oakland, California.  BILLBOARD MAGAZINE declared the group “the best hip-hop act of the past decade.”  Riley recently teamed with Tom Morello ( of Rage Against the Machine) to form the revolutionary new group Street Sweeper Social Club.
