Philip Guston: Nixon Drawings: 1971 & 1975

"Guston's Richard Nixon drawings are nasty, scabrous, witty, grossly unfair and one of the juster verdicts handed down on our 37th president, the only one to resign from office." -William Corbett, The Brooklyn Rail

Philip Guston: Nixon Drawings is the first comprehensive collection of Guston’s legendary satirical caricatures of the 37th President of the United States, Richard Nixon. Expanding on Poor Richard (University of Chicago Press, 2001, now out of print and rare), it features some 180 works depicting Nixon and his cronies from 1971 and 1975. The book opens with an introduction by Philip Guston’s daughter, Musa Mayer, and also includes the transcript of a panel discussion moderated by Phong Bui with William Corbett, Irving Sandler, Lisa Yuskavage, Bob Mankoff and Katy Siegel.

These trenchant works were created in the tumultuous political climate of the early 1970s; the US was reeling from the assassinations of Martin Luther King Jr. and Senator Robert F. Kennedy, the chaos of the 1968 presidential election and the enduring violence of the Vietnam War. The publication of the Pentagon Papers, and Nixon’s unsuccessful attempts to prevent their disclosure, made the president look both amoral and somewhat hapless. This is the “Poor Richard,” a slyly political little sneak, that appears in Guston’s cartoons from the period.

A contemporary of Jackson Pollock and Willem de Kooning, Philip Guston (1913–80) first came to fame as an Abstract Expressionist. He began reintroducing figurative elements―clumsy hands, cigarettes, light bulbs―into his work in the late 1960s. These late paintings were first exhibited, to savage critical reception, in 1970; Guston began his Nixon drawings at precisely this point in his career. Caricaturing Nixon, Guston began to refine a pictorial language equally sensitive to inner pathos and the turmoil of the public world.

Nightstalkers (Area 51: The Nightstalkers)

Staff Sergeant Winthrop Carter has just been drafted into the Nightstalkers—an elite group of soldiers that...

Actually, he’s not quite sure what they do.

Born from the Area 51 initiative, the Nightstalkers defy sanity and decorum and include among their ranks Moms, a Black Ops trainee too extreme for Special Forces; Doc, a scientific crackpot; Roland, the weapons enthusiast; and Mac, a contemporary MacGyver. All of them take their orders from the elusive Ms. Jones, who everyone claims is just a hologram.

Those orders include tracking down and sealing tears in our reality that are releasing interdimensional beings known only as Fireflies— creatures that take control of both living and inanimate matter in order to unleash wanton destruction.

Just as Carter is settling in, a rogue scientist triggers a fresh invasion of Fireflies that swarm a swanky gated community. Now it’s up to Carter and his new teammates to neutralize the threat while figuring out who’s behind the breach.

Eyes of the Hammer (The Green Berets) (Volume 1)
Eyes of the Hammer by NY Times Bestselling Author, former Green Beret and West Point Graduate, Bob Mayer, is “Exciting and authentic! Author Mayer, a Green Beret himself, gave me a vivid look at the world of the Army’s Special Forces. His portrayal of Green Beret operations and techniques takes you deep into the world of Special Operations.” W.E.B. Griffin.

A US Special Forces team lead by Green Beret Dave Riley is on a top secret mission to take down drug traffickers in Colombia, but while doing so they are faced with betrayal by their own government.

The team is carrying sterilized weapons and unmarked uniforms and the operation is “off the books.”

Of course, nothing is as it seems, especially once the CIA gets involved. Throw in an Israeli mercenary and betrayal, Dave Riley and his team soon find themselves wondering what the real mission is and will they become collateral damage from all the double-dealing going on back in Washington.

Eyes of the Hammer is the first book in the bestselling Green Beret Series written by a man who has “been there, done that.”

The Book of Truths (Area 51: The Nightstalkers)
Building off the world first seen in Bob Mayer’s Area 51 novels, the Nightstalkers series explores a new covert force dedicated to moving unseen in their fight against the unknown.

A little truth is a dangerous thing.

A lot could kill us all.

The Nightstalkers are back, and the world needs them now more than ever.

When a real-life truth serum, an unauthorized military cabal, and the nuclear football—which contains the authorization the President needs to launch the nation’s missiles—all converge, the Nightstalkers suit up for another deadly job. Joining forces with the Cellar, the covert world’s police force, the team might be mankind’s last hope.

With the President infected by an out-of-control pathogen, the Nightstalkers’ primary mission becomes finding a hidden stash of nuclear missiles before a secret group can launch a pre-emptive strike against America’s enemies. Because a rogue general has taken control of the operation center beneath the White House, and all hell’s about to break loose.

The Book of Truths builds and builds before roaring to a breathless showdown that could mean the beginning of the end for everyone.

The Rift (Area 51: The Nightstalkers)

Book 3 in the Nightstalkers series.

Ever since the first Rift opened in Area 51 in 1947, exposing the world to deadly beings of pure energy, only the Nightstalkers have stood between humanity and complete annihilation. But as the decades have gone by, whatever power controls the Rifts seems to be getting smarter, as if refining an ultimate plan...

An old ally alerts the Nightstalkers to a resurgence of Rifts in Tennessee, near one of the team’s first major skirmishes with the seemingly inexhaustible threat. Though still licking their wounds from their latest mission, the Nightstalkers know there’s no one else remotely prepared to battle these intrusions into our world. And this time, they’re intent on closing down the Rifts once and for all. But to do so, they’ll have to finally face the truth behind the Rifts’ origins.

They say that those who forget the past are doomed to repeat it.

But what if the past has already doomed us all?

The Rift is the explosive next episode that started with Nightstalkers and The Book of Truths from New York Times bestselling author Bob Mayer.

Battle for Atlantis (Volume 6)
The book brings to a close the riveting Atlantis series of books. Battles across time and space. Massacres and noble sacrifices. Creatures and events mankind considered legends come to life. All in one terrifying climax with the fate of the world hanging in the balance.

What if the legendary Shadow that destroyed Atlantis 10,000 years ago, comes back to threaten our present world?

Washington DC is laid waste. In Paris, the swastika flies from the Eiffel Tower. More than two billion are dead from the polar caps melting. This is the future former Green Beret Eric Dane, with the help of Amelia Earhart, sees through the mysterious gates unless he can prevent it.

A war beyond time. An enemy beyond space. A thriller beyond your wildest dreams. Three areas on the Earth’s surface defy explanation: the Bermuda Triangle, the Devil’s Sea of Japan, and a small region of Cambodia. Inside these realms, planes have disappeared, ships have vanished, and, in Cambodia, an entire civilization has been lost leaving behind Angkor Wat.

In 1863 Robert E. Lee leads the south’s last chance at victory over the North. The two armies meet at Gettysburg, neither side quite aware why they are drawn there. For the result of Pickett’s charge will not just determine the war, but the fate of the planet on a scale only a handful of priestesses from another time understand as they connect this battle with the Little Big Horn in 1876 and the Zulu territory in Africa in 1828 as British Forces prepare to face their enemy at Isandlwana.

In the present, Dane must work with Earhart to make sure the massacres and deaths from those battles will not be in vain as they try to stop the dark Shadow coming through the gates from consuming our world.
