Lushly written with rich and vivid characters, SANTA OLIVIA is Jacqueline Carey's take on comic book superheroes and the classic werewolf myth. Loup Garron was born and raised in Santa Olivia, an isolated, disenfranchised town next to a US military base inside a DMZ buffer zone between Texas and Mexico. A fugitive "Wolf-Man" who had a love affair with a local woman, Loup's father was one of a group of men genetically-manipulated and used by the US government as a weapon. The "Wolf-Men" were engineered to have superhuman strength, speed, sensory capability, stamina, and a total lack of fear, and Loup, named for and sharing her father's wolf-like qualities, is marked as an outsider. After her mother dies, Loup goes to live among the misfit orphans at the parish church, where they seethe from the injustices visited upon the locals by the soldiers. Eventually, the orphans find an outlet for their frustrations: They form a vigilante group to support Loup Garron who, costumed as their patron saint, Santa Olivia, uses her special abilities to avenge the town. Aware that she could lose her freedom, and possibly her life, Loup is determined to fight to redress the wrongs her community has suffered. And like the reincarnation of their patron saint, she will bring hope to all of Santa Olivia.

Mit den Erlebnissen des kessen Schweinemädchens Olivia hatte der amerikanische Zeichner auf Anhieb so großen Erfolg, dass er seit dem ersten Buch (BA 5/01) weitere Abenteuer für seine originelle Protagonistin ersann (BA 9/04; 4/07). Jetzt feiert Olivia Weihnachten im Familienkreis, wo es mit kleinen und größeren Katastrophen menschlich-vertraut zugeht. Sie füttert den kleinen Bruder mit Blaubeerkuchen, den er erwartungsgemäß ins Zimmer spuckt, sie verheddert sich rettungslos in der Lichterkette, stimmt mit den Eltern das Gloria vor dem schwarzen Flügel an und packt Geschenke aus, "gute und halbgute Sachen", die der durch den Kamin gekommene Weihnachtsmann unter dem Christbaum plaziert hat. Amerikanische Bräuche, die zusätzlich in einem kurzen Vorspann erklärt werden. Der ungeduldige weihnachtliche Erwartung spiegelnde Text ist zeichnerisch wieder genial umgesetzt. In mattem Grau, aufgehellt durch helles Grün und Rot in Olivias geringelter Hose und dem Wams ihres Bruders, skizziert Falconer mit feinem Strich und witziger Überzeichnung das familiäre Glück im Hause Schwein. Zur Fortsetzung für alle. . - Das Bilderbuch zeigt, wie das Schweinemädchen Olivia mit ihren Eltern und ihren Geschwistern Weihnachten feiert.

Fellow orphans, amateur vigilantes, and members of the Santitos, Loup Garron-the fugitive daughter of a genetically engineered "wolf man"-and Pilar Ecchevarria grew up in the military zone of Outpost 12, formerly known as Santa Olivia. But now they're free, and they want to help the rest of the Santitos escape. During a series of escapades, they discover that Miguel, Loup's former sparring partner and reprobate surrogate brother, has escaped from Outpost 12 and is testifying on behalf of its forgotten citizens-at least until he disappears from protective custody. Honor drives Loup to rescue Miguel, even though entering the U.S could mean losing her liberty. Pilar vows to help her. It will take a daring and absurd caper to extricate Miguel from the mess he's created but Loup is prepared to risk everything... and this time she has help.

The New Navy, 1883-1922

The third volume of The U.S. Navy Warship Series covers the fifty-year period from 1883-1922. In 1883, Congress authorized the first ships of the "New Navy" and ordered removal of all obsolete ships. All US Navy ships since that time have stemmed from these first three cruisers. The numbering system in effect since 1920 was effectively begun in 1886. The ships built during the next few years fought in the Spanish-American War. The success and popularity of the naval victories of that war together with the acquisition of overseas territories were the impetus for a large naval shipbuilding program. The voyage around the world of the "Great White Fleet" was a prime example of the excitement felt by the American people about the Navy. This led naturally into the fleet of World War I and its vast expansion, terminating with its demobilization after the war and the succeeding naval disarmament treaty of 1992. This book will be arranged following the standard format with sections on Capital Ships, Cruisers, Destroyers, Submarines, Mines Vessels, Patrol Vessels, Tenders, Supply & Transport Ships, Naval Overseas Transportation Service (NOTS), and other government departments (Coast Guard, etc.).
