Kim Harrison signs at Books & Books at February 26, 2012 at 6:00 pm.

Press Release:

New York Times bestselling author Kim Harrison returns to the Hollows in A Perfect Blood the electrifying follow-up to her acclaimed Pale Demon.

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

Comments Off on 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

Comments Off on 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. Shaq will sign up to 5 copies per person. Limit 5 vouchers per person. He will not be able to personalize. Photos may be taken from the line, but not posed.

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.

FL – Decoded Host Signing

Brad Meltzer signs on Saturday, January 15th at 7:30 pm.

No. 1 New York Times bestselling author Brad Meltzer returns with The Inner Circle (Grand Central Publishing, $26.99) a pulse-pounding new novel of lies and deception at the highest levels of government. Beecher White, a young archivist, spends his days working with the most important documents of the U.S. government:  There are stories no one knows. Hidden stories. I love those stories. And since I work in the National Archives, I find those stories for a living. When Clementine Kaye, his first childhood crush, shows up at the Archives asking for his help tracking down her long-lost father, Beecher tries to impress her by showing her the secret vault where the President of the United States privately reviews classified documents. It is also where Beecher and Clementine accidentally happen upon a priceless artifact — a 200-year-old dictionary that once belonged to George Washington – hidden inside a desk chair. Eager to discover why the President is hiding this important national treasure, the two soon find themselves entangled in a web of deception, conspiracy, and murder that will reveal the most well kept secret of the U.S. Presidency.

FL – Two Cents Plain Signing

Martin Lemelman signs on December 29, 2010 at 7:30 pm.

Martin Lemelman’s elegiac and bittersweet graphic memoir Two Cents Plain collects the memories and artifacts of the author’s childhood in Brooklyn. The son of Holocaust survivors, Lemelman grew up in the back of his family’s candy store in Brownsville during the 1950s and ’60s, as the neighborhood, and much of the city, moved into a period of deep decline. In Two Cents Plain, Lemelman pieces together the fragments of his past in an effort to come toterms with a childhood that was marked by struggle both in and outside of the home. But his was not a childhood wholly without its pleasures. Lemelman’s Brooklyn is also the nostalgic place of egg creams and comic books, malteds and novelty toys, where the voices of Brownsville’s denizens—the deli man, the fish man, and the fruit man—all come to vivid life. Two Cents Plain is a wholly unique memoir and a reading experience not soon forgotten.
