Fool Moon is a sparkling collection by a well-known poet. Constructed in four parts for the phases of the moon, it is as lively and irreverent as ever. There are bright glimpses of faraway places, warm conversations with friends, jokes and games with words, strong theatrical elements and encounters with other writers. One poem is made up of lines from The Penguin Book of New Zealand Verse (1985); another is a moving elegy for poet and dramatist Alan Brunton. While there are the sardonic and satirical moments so characteristic of Murray Edmond, the collection as a whole is affirmative, entertaining and enjoyable reading. With photographs by Joanna Forsberg.

Meet Harry Dresden, Chicago's first (and only) Wizard P.I. Turns out the 'everyday' world is full of strange and magical things - and most of them don't play well with humans. That's where Harry comes in. Business has been slow lately for Harry Dresden. Okay, business has been dead. Not undead - just dead. You would think Chicago would have a little more action for the only professional wizard in the phone book. But lately, Harry hasn't been able to dredge up any kind of work - magical or mundane. But just when it looks like he can't afford his next meal, a murder comes along that requires his particular brand of supernatural expertise. A brutally mutilated corpse. Strange-looking paw prints. A full moon. Take three guesses. And the first two don't count . . . Magic - it can get a guy killed. 'The Dresden Files is my favourite series ever' Patrick Rothfuss, author of The Name of the Wind 'Butcher's storytelling is satisfying on a level that's bone-deep' io9 'One of the most reliable post-Buffy supernatural thriller series on offer' Time Out 'Dresden has a vitality that few urban fantasy heroes can match' SFX The Dresden Files novels begin with STORM FRONT, and continues with FOOL MOON, GRAVE PERIL, SUMMER KNIGHT, DEATH MASKS, BLOOD RITES, DEAD BEAT, PROVEN GUILTY, WHITE NIGHT, SMALL FAVOUR, TURN COAT, CHANGES, GHOST STORY, COLD DAYS and SKIN GAME.

Two tarot-savvy cats and their tenderhearted human outwit a cruel criminal in this animal-centric whodunit. Most days, Ruby Sparks feels like the sign that says "Tarot Card Reader Extraordinaire" should say "Tarot Card Reader Fairly Competent." But as challenging as it is to take care of her half-sister's New Age shop—and her growing menagerie of enchanted pets—Ruby never worries that she's bitten off more than she can chew...until a customer wants her to divine the truth about a murder. When her own life is threatened with a double dose of danger, Ruby begins to wonder if she's being played for a fool. Luckily, she has Ophelia and Brandon—sibling black cats with a talent for tarot—and a feisty pit bull friend who all lend a paw in collaring the culprit before Ruby finds herself taking her final cat nap. Praise: "[Stuckart] writes throughout with charm and warmth. Anyone with a pet will enjoy."—Kirkus Reviews "Lighthearted and quirky, this will enchant cozy readers and animal lovers."—Publishers Weekly "Diane A.S. Stuckart strikes the perfect balance of quirky and charming with murder and sleuthing hijinks. Ruby handles the human matters with plenty of sass and a quirkiness that pairs well with murder-solving pets. While Ophelia, Brandon, and Zuki handle their own investigation in a realistically animal way, they show their innocent nature and their heartfelt determination."—Seattle Book Review "Fool's Moon is an enjoyable cozy mystery; it's the cat's meow for animal lovers and a purr-fect debut for her new series."—Lansing State Journal

A Fool's Moon," is a collection of poems that were written between circa 2004 and 2006, when I was in my mid-to-late 20s. My work is mainly based on past life experiences that have affected me so greatly that they served as literary inspiration to me, for better or for worse. The book title itself is in reference to a poem that's included in my book, on page 78.

Through this illustrated tale about the moon stealing the sun's glory, children learn about the importance of humility and the dangers of pride. This rhyming, rollicking tale tells of a crime of cosmic proportions: the moon, blinded by pride, fails to see the true source of his abilities-the light provided by the sun. He boasts of his ability to shine, to change shape throughout each month, and to swell the tides. One day, overwhelmed by a piercing ray of sunshine, the moon repents of his pride and changes his ways, and from that point on he is happy to reflect the sun's light. This beautifully illustrated book introduces the concept of humility to children. Readers will be reminded that everything we have, including our gifts and talents, is from God. Just as the moon learns to boast only of the sun, children-and their parents-learn that to boast of anything other than the Son is utter foolishness.

The Fool's Progress, the "fat masterpiece" as Edward Abbey labeled it, is his most important piece of writing: it reveals the complete Ed Abbey, from the green grass of his memory as a child in Appalachia to his approaching death in Tuscon at age sixty two. When his third wife abandons him in Tucson, boozing, misanthropic anarchist Henry Holyoak Lightcap shoots his refrigerator and sets off in a battered pick-up truck for his ancestral home in West Virginia. Accompanied only by his dying dog and his memories, the irascible warhorse (a stand-in for the "real" Abbey) begins a bizarre cross-country odyssey--determined to make peace with his past--and to wage one last war against the ravages of "progress." "A profane, wildly funny, brash, overbearing, exquisite tour de force." -- The Chicago Tribune

Lunacy, the legendary notion of minds unhinged by the moon, continues to captivate the popular imagination. Although it violates the assumptions of modern science and psychiatry, such belief remains common among mental health workers. Furthermore, several studies have found a small, unexplained correlation between behaviour and the lunar cycle. The book is divided into two parts. It begins with a historical account of the lunacy concept, followed by an investigation of hypothetical mechanisms for a lunar effect.
