When You Disappeared

All she wanted was the truth, but she’ll wish she never found out.

When Catherine wakes up alone one morning, she thinks her husband has gone for a run before work. But Simon never makes it to the office. His running shoes are by the front door. Nothing is missing—except him.

Catherine knows Simon must be in trouble. He wouldn’t just leave her. He wouldn’t leave the children.

But Simon knows the truth—about why he left and what he’s done. He knows things about his marriage that it would kill Catherine to find out. The memories she holds onto are lies.

While Catherine faces a dark new reality at home, Simon’s halfway around the world, alive and thriving. He’s doing whatever it takes to stay one step ahead of the truth.

But he can’t hide forever, and when he reappears twenty-five years later, Catherine will finally learn who he is.

And wish she’d stayed in the dark.

Revised edition: Previously published as The Wronged Sons, this edition of When You Disappeared includes editorial revisions.

Red Earth: A Vietnamese Memoir of Life on a Colonial Rubber Plantation (Ohio RIS Southeast Asia Series)

Phu Rieng was one of many French rubber plantations in colonial Vietnam; Tran Tu Binh was one of 17,606 laborers brought to work there in 1927, and his memoir is a straightforward, emotionally searing account of how one Vietnamese youth became involved in revolutionary politics. The connection between this early experience and later activities of the author becomes clear as we learn that Tran Tu Binh survived imprisonment on Con Son island to help engineer the general uprising in Hanoi in 1945.

The Red Earth is the first of dozens of such works by veterans of the 1924–45 struggle in Vietnam to be published in English translation. It is important reading for all those interested in the many-faceted history of modern Vietnam and of communism in the non-Western world.

The One
How far would you go to find The One?

A simple DNA test is all it takes. Just a quick mouth swab and soon you’ll be matched with your perfect partner—the one you’re genetically made for.

That’s the promise made by Match Your DNA. A decade ago, the company announced that they had found the gene that pairs each of us with our soul mate. Since then, millions of people around the world have been matched. But the discovery has its downsides: test results have led to the breakup of countless relationships and upended the traditional ideas of dating, romance and love.

Now five very different people have received the notification that they’ve been “Matched.” They’re each about to meet their one true love. But “happily ever after” isn’t guaranteed for everyone. Because even soul mates have secrets. And some are more shocking than others…

A word-of-mouth hit in the United Kingdom, The One is a fascinating novel that shows how even the simplest discoveries can have complicated consequences.

Ungraspable Phantom: Essays on Moby-Dick
The twenty-one essays collected in "Ungraspable Phantom" are from an international conference held in 2001 celebrating the 150th anniversary of the publication of "Moby-Dick". The essays reflect not only a range of problems and approaches, but also the cosmopolitan perspective of international scholarship. They offer new thoughts on familiar topics: the novel's problematic structure, its sources in and reinvention of the Bible, its Lacanian and post-Freudian psychology, and its rhetoric. They also present fresh information on new areas of interest: Melville's creative process, law and jurisprudence, Freemasonry and labor, race, Latin Americanism, and the Native American. Scholars, students, and readers of "Moby-Dick" will find this collection of essays fresh and insightful.

Treasures of the Baseball Hall of Fame:The National Baseball Hall Of Fame And Museum
"Baseball is at the core of our national life, and the Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum is the game's national shrine, the repository of its heritage."  So begins this tour of the treasures of the Hall of Fame.  Every baseball fan knows that Cooperstown stands for the best of the history and tradition of the great game.  For those fans who visit this village in upstate New York--400,000 make the pilgrimage annually--and for those who cannot get there, John Thorn, baseball's foremost historian, has selected the Hall of Fame's most important artifacts.  He has written about each piece and what it represents in the larger context of the game's history, and David Jordano has meticulously and lovingly photographed these treasures, capturing their essence perfectly.

In words and pictures, Treasures of the Baseball Hall of Fame  spans the whole of baseball's history from its semi-mythical beginnings through successive ages of legends and giants all the way to today's heroes. A lithographic panorama of a game from the 1860s at the Elysian Fields in Hoboken, home of the New York Knickerbockers, begins the Time Line that runs through the book. It includes mementos of the Cincinnati Red Stockings of 1869, the first openly professional team; bats and balls from the dead-ball era; the ball Cy Young pitched during his five hundredth victory; Eddie Gaedel's unique uniform; the bat that Bobby Thomson used to break the Dodgers' fans hearts; George Brett's pine tar bat -- a sequence of baseball's outstanding memories. The Hall of Fame's Special Exhibits are showcased, detailing the place in the game's heritage of the Negro Leagues, plus features on the Minor Leagues, the women's game, and baseball abroad. There are paintings, movie posters, magazines, baseball cards, tickets, and scorecards. The game's showpieces, memorable moments from the All-Star Game and World Series, are recalled. Pieces of baseball equipment from across the ages are commemorated alongside souvenirs of old parks  (the cornerstone of Shibe Park and blueprints for the old Comiskey Park) and fascinating artifacts from the Hall's huge archives.
        
It is where Treasures of the Baseball Hall of Fame chronicles the magnificent individual achievements of the game that its echoes will resonate most profoundly perhaps: Harvey Haddix's no-hitter that wasn't; triple-play balls, Roger Maris's bat, a base Lou Brock stole and a ball Hank Aaron hit out. Baseball's immortals are remembered in magnificent photographic collages and evocative essays. Tributes left at the Hall of Fame on the day of Mickey Mantle's death and the letter Lou Gehrig wrote to his wife from a hotel in Detroit on May 2, 1939 -- the day he benched himself after 2,130 games -- almost speak for themselves. And the great names reverberate now and for all time: Christy Mathewson, Honus Wagner, Ty Cobb, Cy Young, Jimmie Foxx, Lou Gehrig, Babe Ruth, Jackie Robinson, Joe DiMaggio, Stan Musial, Willie Mays, Mickey Mantle, Roberto Clemente, Ted Williams.
        
All that is best in baseball is here, dramatically brought to life. Treasures of the Baseball Hall of Fame reflects the teamwork by John Thorn David Jordano, and the staff of the National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum. This is a magnificent souvenir of America's Pastime, its pageantry, and the glories of its continuing history.

Praise For the Hairy Man: The Secret Life of Bigfoot
Popular FM-radio personalities Jeffery Pritchett and Andy Colvin recently invited a number of prominent Bigfoot researchers onto their wild and woolly New Orleans radio show, "The Church of Mabus," in order to get a handle on the controversial Bigfoot scene. "Praise For the Hairy Man: The Secret Life of Bigfoot" is the result of their intensive two-year examination.

Using a simple “10 Questions” interview format, the authors provide a useful snapshot of this burgeoning field of research. In these colorful discussions, Pritchett and Colvin – who have both seen strange "things" themselves – ask the difficult questions point-blank, yet delicately extract many secrets about the elusive creature from researchers like Dr. Jeff Meldrum, Sali Sheppard-Wolford, Kewaunee Lapseritis, Barton Nunnelly, Jeffery Wells, Lyle Blackburn, David Paulides, Christopher Munch, Nick Redfern, Christopher Noël, Brent Raynes, Ross Hamilton, Freeman Young, W.R. Matts, Stacy Brown, Jack Barnes, Julie Scott, and the Bigfoot Chicks.

But this book is more than just an overview. Pritchett and Colvin also deliver extended, free-form interviews with groundbreaking investigators such as Ken Gerhard, Stan Gordon, Dave Coleman, Thom Powell, Kathy Strain, Ardy Sixkiller Clarke, Thomas Hughes, and Jim Marrs, taking the reader into uncharted realms of Sasquatch high-strangeness: the Bigfoot-UFO connection; the Bigfoot-Mothman connection; the possible role of ancient aliens in the genetic history of the Yeti; the sex habits of Sasquatch; reports of Bigfoot telepathy, shapeshifting, and flight; the “pro-kill vs. no-kill” debate; the widespread Native American belief in Sasquatch; and the controversies surrounding Bigfoot DNA – whether or not the Hairy Man should be recognized as an endangered species. The result is a mind-expanding, one-of-a-kind collection of oral history that dares to go where no other Bigfoot book has gone.

This special 2016 edition of "Praise for the Hairy Man" features a dozen interesting photographs from Bigfoot history, as well as a beautiful cover image by Bigfoot experiencer Bobby Beausoleil, former member of the Manson Family.

"Opens your mind without your brain falling out..." –Jim Marrs, "The View From Marrs"

“An entertaining romp through Bigfoot land…” –Ted Torbich, "The Stench of Truth"

“Keep your head above water, if you can!” –Greg Carlwood, "The Higher Side Chats"

“An intimate look at the world's sexiest beast…” –Adam Gorightly, "Untamed Dimensions"

“Purr…” –Tessa B. Dick, "Ancient of Days"
