Faith and her sister, Hope, counsel a bride-to-be suffering a number of alarming "accidents" before the big day in "Across the Pond." In "Sliced," Faith switches from contestant to detective when a killer reality television cooking competition turns deadly. Small Plates also includes some irresistible standalone treats, including the Agatha Award-winning "The Would-Be Widower," about a husband who longs to be rid of his wife, and "Hiding Places" in which a young wife's new husband may not be all that he appears" --[]

These interviews do more than just define an innovative genre of contemporary fiction. They provide a precise way of understanding the complicated relationship and pregnant tensions between contextualized thinking and historical representation, interdisciplinary studies and 'truth' production, and fictional reality and factual constructions. By focusing on classical and contemporary debates regarding the nature of the historical novel, this volume charts the forces that gave birth to a new incarnation of this genre"--

"From the 1950s to the 1980s, American corporations commissioned a vast array of lavish, Broadway-style musical shows that were only for the eyes and ears of employees. These improbable productions were meant to educate and motivate the sales force to sell cars, appliances, tractors, soda, and a thousand other products. Though most of these shows were lost to the universe, some were recorded and distributed to convention attendees via souvenir vinyl records. The little-known world of industrial shows is reconstructed through the record collection of author Steve Young, who has spent twenty years finding the extremely rare souvenir albums as well as tracking down and interviewing the writers and performers. Through the records themselves as well as behind-the-scenes stories, a new perspective on American history, culture, and business emerges"--Amazon.com, viewed 11/14/13.
