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.

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.

Henry D. Thoreau Journal, Volume 1: 1837-1844

This first volume of the Journal covers the early years of Thoreau's rapid intellectual and artistic growth. The Journal reflects his reading, travels, and contacts with Ralph Waldo Emerson, Margaret Fuller, and other Transcendentalists. With characteristic reticence, Thoreau mentions only a few episodes in his emotional history: an ill-fated romance, the death of his elder brother, and an unhappy sojourn on Staten Island, where he tried to write for New York periodicals. Parts of Thoreau's Journal have been published, but always with large omissions of text and with considerable grooming of its erratic manuscript style. This edition presents the entire surviving manuscript in a text preserving Thoreau's words as he originally wrote 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.

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!

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.
