“Hacksaw” Jim Duggan signs at Books & Books on Monday April 2, 2012 at 6:00 pm

Offering professional wrestling fans a ringside seat into his adventurous life, WWE Hall of Fame wrestler Jim Duggan recounts for the first time key moments and legendary bouts both inside and outside the ring in Hacksaw: The Jim Duggan Story (Triumph, $19.95). Known to millions of enthusiasts as a charismatic patriot — with an American flag in his right hand and his signature two-by-four in his left — Duggan shares how an injury-plagued NFL rookie season curtailed his football ambitions and paved the way for a brighter career in professional wrestling. Rising to fame in the Cold War–era 1980s, Duggan engaged in legendary feuds with some of the biggest names in wrestling, including the Iron Sheik, Nikolai Volkoff, and Andre the Giant. Duggan also reflects on his fight against kidney cancer during the prime of his career. With each page peppered with Duggan’s charming wit, fans will find much to enjoy and discover about the man they once knew only as “Hacksaw.”

Press Release:

Ritually murdered corpses are appearing across Cincinnati, terrifying amalgams of human and “other.” Pulled in to help investigate by the I.S. and the FIB, former witch turned day-walking demon Rachel Morgan soon realizes a horrifying truth: a human hate group is trying to create its own demons to destroy all Inderlanders, and to do so, it needs her blood.

She’s faced vampires, witches, werewolves, demons, and more, but humanity itself might be her toughest challenge yet.

FL – Boys of Steel Signing

Marc Tyler Nobleman signs at Books & Books on Saturday, February 4, 2012 at 7:00 pm.

Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster, two misfit teens in Depression-era Cleveland, were more like Clark Kent—meek, mild, and myopic—than his secret identity, Superman. Both boys escaped into the worlds of science fiction and pulp magazine adventure tales. Jerry wrote stories, and Joe illustrated them. In 1934, they created a superhero who was everything they were not. It was four more years before they convinced a publisher to take a chance on their Man of Steel in a new format—the comic book. The author includes a provocative afterword about Jerry and Joe’s long struggle with DC Comics when they realized they had made a mistake in selling all rights to Superman for a mere $130.

Marc Tyler Nobleman’s Boys of Steel captures the excitement of Jerry and Joe’s triumph, and the energetic illustrations by Ross MacDonald, the author-artist of Another Perfect Day, are a perfect complement to the time, the place, and the two young visionaries.

FL – Shaq Signs

NBA superstar Shaquille O’Neal signs at Books & Books on Monday, December 5, 2011 at 7:00 pm!

BOOK PURCHASE REQUIRED for this event. Purchase a copy of Shaq Uncut at Books & Books and you will receive one (1) voucher for entry to the autographing line.

Diesel. The Big Aristotle and Hobo Master. Superman. Shaq Fu. The Big Daddy. The Big Cactus. The Big Shaqtus. The Big Galactus. Wilt Chamberneezy. The Real Deal. The Big Shamrock. Shaq.

You know him by any number of names, and chances are you know all about his legendary basketball career: Shaquille “Shaq” O’Neal is a four time NBA champion and a three time NBA Finals MVP. After being an All-American at Lousiana State University, he was the number one draft pick by the NBA in 1992. 28,596 career points, 13,099 rebounds, 3,026 assists, 2,732 blocks, 4,146 fouls and 15 All-Star appearances. Six teams and four championships. These are statistics that are almost as massive as the man himself. His presence – both physically and psychologically – has made him a ruling force in the game for years.

But there is a lot more to Shaquille O’Neal than basketball.

Shaq is famous for his playful, sometimes provocative personality. He is outsize in both scale and persona. Whether acting in films like Kazaam, rapping on any of his five albums, challenging celebrities on his hit show “Shaq Vs.,” studying for his PhD. or acting as a reserve police officer, Shaq has led a fascinating and rollicking life. In this candid new autobiography he discusses his colorful career, NBA victories, and his thoughts on major NBA names like Kobe Bryant, Phil Jackson, and Pat Riley. From growing up in difficult circumstances and getting cut from his high school basketball team to his four NBA championships and recent retirement, Shaq discusses it all in Shaq Uncut: The Autobiography.
