Walden and Civil Disobedience
Henry David Thoreau reflects on life, politics, and society in these two inspiring masterworks.

In 1845, Thoreau moved to a cabin that he built with his own hands along the shores of Walden Pond in Massachusetts. Shedding the trivial ties that he felt bound much of humanity, Thoreau reaped from the land both physically and mentally, and pursued truth in the quiet of nature. In Walden, he explains how separating oneself from the world of men can truly awaken the sleeping self. Thoreau holds fast to the notion that you have not truly existed until you adopt such a lifestyle—and only then can you reenter society, as an enlightened being.
 
These simple but profound musings—as well as “Civil Disobedience,” his protest against the government’s interference with civil liberty—have inspired many to embrace his philosophy of individualism and love of nature. More than a century and a half later, his message is more timely than ever.

A true synthesis for environmental studies.

This is the first textbook to fully synthesize all key disciplines of environmental studies. Humans in the Landscape draws on the biophysical sciences, social sciences, and humanities to explore the interactions between cultures and environments over time, and discusses classic environmental problems in the context of the overarching conflicts and frameworks that motivate them.

The John McPhee Reader

The John McPhee Reader, first published in 1976, is comprised of selections from the author's first twelve books. In 1965, John McPhee published his first book, A Sense of Where You Are; a decade later, he had published eleven others. His fertility, his precision and grace as a stylist, his wit and uncanny brilliance in choosing subject matter, his crack storytelling skills have made him into one of our best writers: a journalist whom L.E. Sissman ranked with Liebling and Mencken, who Geoffrey Wolff said "is bringing his work to levels that have no measurable limit," who has been called "a master craftsman" so many times that it is pointless to number them.

The Ecocriticism Reader: Landmarks in Literary Ecology

The Ecocriticism Reader is the first collection of its kind, an anthology of classic and cutting-edge writings in the rapidly emerging field of literary ecology. Exploring the relationship between literature and the physical environment, literary ecology is the study of the ways that writing both reflects and influences our interactions with the natural world.

An introduction to the field as well as a source book, The Ecocriticism Reader defines ecological literary discourse and sketches its development over the past quarter-century. The twenty-five selections in this volume, a mixture of reprinted and original essays, look backward to origins and forward to trends and provide generally appealing and lucidly written examples of the range of ecological approaches to literature. Lists of recommended readings, relevant periodicals, and professional organizations offer direction for further study.

The Ecocriticism Reader is an illuminating entree into a field of study fully engaged with our most pressing contemporary problem―the global environmental crisis.

A Week on the Concord and Merrimack Rivers (Writings of Henry D. Thoreau)

Henry D. Thoreau's classic A Week on the Concord and Merrimack Rivers is published now as a new paperback edition and includes an introduction by noted writer John McPhee. This work--unusual for its symbolism and structure, its criticism of Christian institutions, and its many-layered storytelling--was Thoreau's first published book.

In the late summer of 1839, Thoreau and his older brother John made a two-week boat-and-hiking trip from Concord, Massachusetts, to the White Mountains of New Hampshire. After John's sudden death in 1842, Thoreau began to prepare a memorial account of their excursion. He wrote two drafts of this story at Walden Pond, which he continued to revise and expand until 1849, when he arranged for its publication at his own expense. The book's heterodoxy and apparent formlessness troubled its contemporary audience. Modern readers, however, have come to see it as an appropriate predecessor to Walden, with Thoreau's story of a river journey depicting the early years of his spiritual and artistic growth.

Monster! #12: December 2014
Monster! is now a year old, and counting. That means this is our 12th big issue of 2014, and it’s our biggest yet at over 100 digest-sized pages! And have we got a whole bunch of goodies in store for you…and just in time for Xmas, too! Co-editor Tim Paxton contributes Part 7 of his continuous coverage of the monster movie output of India’s prolific filmmaking family, the Ramsays; the main focus in M! #12 being The House of Ramsay’s latest horror offering, NEIGHBOURS: THEY ARE VAMPIRES. In his ongoing Creature Feature series, Louis Paul eyeballs a number of choice (and not-so-choice) “eye creature” flicks, including—natch!—THE EYE CREATURES and THE CRAWLING EYE. Elsewhere, over 20+ pages, fellow seasoned zine scene scribe Stephen R. Bissette gives his fond reminiscences and a whole bunch of fascinating behind-the-scenes backstory on the humble-but-loveable British irradiated aquatic dino epic THE GIANT BEHEMOTH, as well as taking in a number other monstrous dinosaur movies in the process. It’s zombies, zombies and—yes!—still more zombies for Adam Parker-Edmondston’s lightning-swift if super-stuffed, 10-page look back at some of the odder walking dead flicks to be had…and, as you can well imagine, there are a lot! In addition, Steve Fenton gives some well-deserved advance coverage of a proposed indie Hollywood biopic which is currently in pre-production whose subject is famed stuntman, cowboy star, “go-to gorilla guy” and frequent monster-suit performer Ray “Crash” Corrigan (who amongst many other things played IT! THE TERROR FROM BEYOND SPACE. That fact alone ensures him immortality!). We’ve also got a diverse cross-section of “on-theme” movie reviews from our longest roster of contributors yet, also including Dennis Capicik, Greg Goodsell, Brian Harris, Troy Howarth, Christopher William Koenig, Mike T. Lyddon, Eric Messina, and Christos Mouroukis. Individual movies reviewed this issue include the ’50s reptile-man schlocker THE ALLIGATOR PEOPLE, the outrageous ’80s UK sci-fi/horror mindblower LIFEFORCE, the wacky Filipino kiddie monster fantasy BOY GOD, the arty late-’60s Argentine vampire flick BLOOD OF THE VIRGINS, and the hugely entertaining Japanese kaiju classic, THE WAR OF THE GARGANTUAS. Other titles covered this ish are THE VALDEMAR LEGACY (both 1 & 2), ABOMINABLE, DAY OF THE MUMMY and CRY WILDERNESS, plus, as always, in our back pages we provide detailed data about the video availability of each title covered. And not only that, but once again we have some stunning original B&W pen-brush-and-ink line art from mucho-talented comics artist Denis St. John, who also contributes a guest editorial too. As per usual, it all comes heavily illustrated with rare poster art, ad-mats and photographs, and is packed to the gills with obscure factoids and trivia. Hell, we’ve even got footnotes, too! So if any of this sounds up your alley, by all means give us a spin.

Monster! #14: EQUINOX Roundtable
The main meat of MONSTER! #14 is our nearly 30-page open forum about both the original 1967 version and the "revamped" 1970 reedit of that enduring no-frills fan fave, EQUINOX, featuring fab stop-motion-animated beasties by David Allen. Contributing more than their ten cents' worth to this roundtable discussion are Christopher William Koenig, Michael Hauss, Mike T. Lyddon, Steve Fenton, John Szpunar, John Harrison and Stephen R. Bissette. In addition to this lengthy look back on said largely woefully underappreciated if far-from-forgotten monster movie classic, we also have our usual grab-bag of assorted reviews of other monster movies -- some classic, others, well...not-so – including write-ups of THE MONOLITH MONSTERS (1957), PARASITE (1982), DEADLY EYES (1982), THE DEADLY SPAWN (1983), TERRORVISION (1985), MONSTER IN THE CLOSET (1986), THE LAST FRANKENSTEIN (1991), FLIGHT TO HELL (2003), ALIEN LOCKDOWN (2004), 13 EERIE (2013) and SUBURBAN GOTHIC (2014), plus several more titles besides. Reviewers include Dennis Capicik, Eric Messina, Jason “Skunkape” Cook, Michael Elvidge, Steven Ronquillo, Matt Bradshaw and Adam Parker-Edmondston. As well, Troy Howarth contributes an article about the BLACULA two-pack, starring the late, great William Marshall, while Louis Paul covers some more Hammer Films shockers in his ongoing column entitled Creature Features. Elsewhere, M! co-editor Tim Paxton gives us Pt. 9 of his ongoing series on "The House of Ramsay", India's foremost purveyors of horror/monster cinema; in this issue he covers 3D SAAMRI (1985) and AAKHRI CHEEKH (1991). We've also got some more snazzy original art by Denis St. John and Matt Bradshaw, plus detailed info about the video availability of all the main titles covered in the issue. And last but by no means least, we've even dug up some dirt on that elusive "lost" Euro critter flick, MUTANO THE HORRIBLE!
