Dive deeper than ever before and discover the origins of “The Man from Atlantis.”

When TV unveiled the series “Man from Atlantis” no one knew the how, where and why of Mark Harris. Over time the show’s star Patrick Duffy formulated his own version of the history of Mark and his people. Here at last is the book that gives every reader and fan of the show the life and mythology of Atlantis, who they were and where they came from. Patrick Duffy’s close connection to his fictional character gives us a special look “behind the scenes” of this amazing fantasy story.  Mark Harris, the Man from Atlantis, has been quietly living under the protection of Dr. Elizabeth Merrill who saved his life in 1976. By studying his abilities the two have contributed countless advances for mankind’s development.

Only a select few know his true identity: Jason the whiz kid of the science lab.  Stacy the bright young intern who is constantly flustered by Mark’s presence.
Dr. Nagashima, a master of oceanic knowledge who Elizabeth lured from Japan to join her inner circle. Then their California oceanside laboratory is shaken when several attempts are made upon Mark’s life. He discovers the assailants have powers similar to his and he is lead into the uncharted depths of the oceans. As he discovers his past Mark’s origins and genealogy finally come to the surface. Includes photos from the author’s personal collection.

Darryl “DMC” McDaniels appears at Book Soup on Saturday, August 13, 2016 at noon to sign his latest memoir Ten Ways Not to Commit Suicide.

Press Release:

In this surprising and moving memoir, the legendary rap star and co-founder of Run D.M.C. keeps it a hundred percent, speaking out about his battle with depression and overcoming suicidal thoughts one of the most devastating yet little known health issues plaguing the black community today.   As one third of the legendary rap group Run D.M.C., Darryl DMC McDaniels aka Legendary MC, The Devastating Mic Controller, and the King of Rock had it all: talent, money, fame, prestige. While hitting #1 on the Billboard charts was exhilarating, the group’s success soon became overwhelming. A creative guy who enjoyed being at home alone or with his family, DMC turned to alcohol to numb himself, a retreat that became an addiction. For years, he went through the motions. But in 1997, when intoxication could no longer keep the pain at bay, he plunged into severe depression and became suicidal. He wasn’t alone. During the same period, suicide became the number three leading cause of death among black people a health crisis that continues to this day.

In this riveting memoir, DMC speaks openly about his emotional and psychological struggles and the impact on his life, and addresses the many reasons that led him and thousands of others to consider suicide. Some of the factors include not being true to who you are, feelings of loneliness, isolation, and alienation, and a lack of understanding and support from friends and family when it’s needed most. He also provides essential information on resources for getting help. Revealing how even the most successful people can suffer from depression, DMC offers inspiration for everyone in pain information and insight that he hopes can help save other lives. (Amistad Press)

CA – Corey Taylor & Randy Blythe Sign

coreytalordark-days

Corey Taylor (Slipknot) and Randall “Randy” Blythe (Lamb of God) present and sign their latest books, You’re Making Me Hate You and Dark Days: A Memoir at Book Soup on Sunday, July 19, 2015 at 4:00 PM!

In the tradition of the late great George Carlin, New York Times bestselling author and lead singer of Slipknot and Stone Sour Corey, Taylor sounds off in hilarious fashion about the many vagaries of modern life that piss him off.   Whether it’s people’s rude behavior in restaurants and malls, the many indignities of air travel, eye-searingly terrible fashion choices, dangerously clueless drivers, and–most of all–the sorry state of much modern music, Taylor’s humor and insight cover civil society’s seeming decline–sparing no one along the way, least of all himself.  Holding nothing back and delivered in Taylor’s inimitable voice, You’re Making Me Hate You is a cathartic critique of the strange world in which we find ourselves. (Da Capo Press)
In 2010, a nineteen-year-old super-fan rushed the stage during a Lamb of God concert in Prague. To protect himself, singer Randy Blythe pushed the fan away. Unbeknownst to Blythe, the young man hit his head on the floor when he fell and later died from the injury. Blythe was promptly incarcerated on charges carrying a prison term of five to ten years. Thirty-seven days later, he was released on bail to await trial. Although legal experts told him not to return to the Czech Republic to face the charges, Blythe explained that he “could not run away from this problem while the grieving family of a dead young man searched hopelessly for answers that [he] might help provide.”  After a five-day trial, he was acquitted on March 5, 2013.  In Dark Days, Blythe tells the story of his incarceration and the wild life that led up to it. As he explains, “Most substance abuse books end with the author getting sober. My book starts there.” (Da Capo Press)
