By day, Monica Holy’s life looks like millions of others. She paints, jogs, talks to friends, and worries about her children. Monica’s nightlife is a different story. Since birth, she has entered extraordinary worlds of consciousness through the portal of lucid dreams. While there, she conducts souls to the other side and to the light, teaches, guides, and heals. She enters those non-ordinary realities not just to explore them, but to work on behalf of the human community. In Fringe Dweller on the Nightshift, she eloquently recounts her psychic and spiritual work with the troubled dead, the newly dead or those about to die – especially children – to provide emergency relief. She also brings back messages from the world beyond this one, by offering each and every one of us inspiration and ideas for honoring our feelings and connecting to the divine expression of all that is. Ultimately, we will all see The Grid (chapter 10): the invisible reality beyond our five senses that underlies all physical form as we know it. Fringe Dweller on the Nightshift combines cosmic adventure with down-to-earth practical information – part art, part memoir, part philosophy, part guidance, this book is a work of the heart.

A Natural History of Australian Bats

To hold a little microbat in your hand, its body the size of the end of your thumb, is nothing but astounding. Its head is nearly the size of a man’s fingernail, its tiny ears are twitching as it struggles to get free, and then it bares its teeth to try and scare you into letting it go. Inside that tiny head is a powerhouse of information. Some of our little bats know the entire landscape of our east coast, and can pinpoint a cave entrance in dense forest 500 km from its last home. When they get there they know what to do – where to forage, which bat to mate with and how to avoid local predators. A Natural History of Australian Bats uncovers the unique biology and ecology of these wonderful creatures. It features a description of each bat species found in Australia, as well as a section on bat myths. The book is enhanced by stunning colour photographs from Steve Parish, most of which have never been seen before.

Women in India’s Call Center Industry

Relatively high wages and the opportunity to be part of an upscale, globalized work environment draw many in India to the call center industry. At the same time, night shift employment presents women, in particular, with new challenges alongside the opportunities. This book explores how beliefs about what constitutes "women's work" are evolving in response to globalization. Working the Night Shift is the first in-depth study of the transnational call center industry that is written from the point of view of women workers. It uncovers how call center employment affects their lives, mainly as it relates to the anxiety that Indian families and Indian society have towards women going out at night, earning a good salary, and being exposed to western culture. This timely account illustrates the ironic and, at times, unsettling experiences of women who enter the spaces and places made accessible through call center work.

In The Night Shift, Dr. Brian Goldman shares his experiences in the witching hours at Mount Sinai Hospital in downtown Toronto. We meet the kinds of patients who walk into an E.R. after midnight: late-night revellers injured on their way home after last call, teens assaulted in the streets by other teens and a woman who punches another woman out of jealousy over a man. But Goldman also reveals the emotional, heartbreaking side of everyday E.R. visits: adult children forced to make life and death decisions about critically ill parents, victims of sexual assault, and mentally ill and homeless patients looking for understanding and a quick fix in the twenty-four-hour waiting room. Written with Goldman’s trademark honesty and with surprising humour, The Night Shift is also a frank look at many issues facing the medical profession today, and it offers a highly compelling inside view into an often shrouded world.

Jonas Kelshiker has worked the night shift in the Evidence Room at the police department for three years. Police officers bring items of potential import from crime scenes to his window, and he files the items and logs them into his computer. Same old, same old. He likes his job well enough, but it's firmly rid him of any preconceptions he might have had about police officers. The night Dan Harris, newly transferred to the Vice Squad, shows up at his window, though, Jamie begins to feel he may have ditched those preconceptions too soon. Dan's gorgeous, funny, and even (or so says Angelina, the gossip at the main desk) potentially gay, but Jonas has never had a proper boyfriend before. He's kind of shy, much to the frustration of everyone, including himself. After the guys' flirtation has dragged on for several weeks, it's become pretty clear that it's going to take something drastic to push Jamie into making a move. Luckily for Jonas, the life of a Vice Squad officer is such that he doesn't have to wait too long for that something.

Having spent four decades as a night shift nurse., I encountered more unusual events then could be documented in any chart. Stories from the seasoned staff certainly remained steady, but it was the true to life experiences that could not be explained away that remained tangible. Having witnessed these events first hand, caused little doubt to form. Local folklore became entwined with actual encounters. Soon teams of experience Paranormal investigators, Anthropology Professors and students as well as the curious became involved in the quest to uncover everything from the malicious to macabre, and Divine to the unusual. Here lies the rest of the stories. Enjoy!

Imagine getting girls to sell their bodies for sex and giving you their money. Is it a skill, talent or combination of both? Love--hate, emotions that are so over powering! The drama, the stress, the sex and the money. Oh yes, did I say money? From my mid- teens I fell into the fast lanes of the street life, where it was all about expensive cars, gorgeous women, hot sex and the never-ending yearning for fast cash. Life wasn't so bad! Life of a pimp included fancy cars, expensive clothes, gorgeous girls and did I mention sensuous sex? Anytime and everywhere. Hotel, motel, alleys, stranger's homes, office buildings, trick pads, back seats, front seats, on the car, in the grass. You think it, they did it. All throughout the U.S.A. and Canada. The information in this book is from years of living the street life as a pimp. Good, bad and indifferent, all exposed. This is my interpretation of events and people who had their lives intertwined with mine.

Two years after discovering his twin brother in a hospital and that things that go bump in the night are all too real, Special Detective Fynn Adder still has a lot to learn-before his newest case drives him back off the wagon. His new partner, a trainee named Simon Murphy and in the middle of breaking him in (hopefully without actually breaking him), a grisly murder rocks the foundation of Fynn's shaky sobriety. And it's not just any murder-it's the murder of a child. As more ritual killings start to spread out across the city, Fynn, Jack, and Simon scramble to track down the necromancer responsible and stop them before they complete whatever ritual they're performing. Meanwhile, Simon has to deal with the overly ambitious FBI Agent Gabriel Sheppard, whose dogged determination to put Simon's mob boss in prison is putting Simon at risk, and hindering Fynn's investigation. As if that wasn't enough, the king of the elves wants to have a sit down, Tara's birthday is only a few days away, and it seems the family secrets just keep on coming. The tension and pressure just never seems to end for Fynn and his crew.

New York is the city that never sleeps. This luminous book peels back the cover of darkness over the city as it hums along in the night, revealing a hidden world populated by the thousands of women and men who work and live the nightshift. Written with beauty and grace, Nightshift NYC weaves together cultural critique, vivid reportage, and arresting photographs to trace the inverted logic of the city at night. Russell Leigh Sharman and Cheryl Harris Sharman spent a year interviewing and shadowing fry cooks and coffee jockeys, train conductors, cab hacks, and dozens of others who keep the city running when the sun goes down. Investigating familiar places such diners and delis, they explore some less familiar ones as well—taking us on a walking tour of homelessness in Manhattan, onto a fishing boat out of Brooklyn, and into other little-known corners of the night. Traveling past the threshold of voyeurism into the lives of real people, they depict a social space entirely apart—one that is highly structured and inherently subversive. Together, these stories open a compelling view on contemporary urban life and, along the way, reveal the soul of the city itself.

The 1960s was the sum of all its summers. As the decade of light and colour, of joy and excitement, fell into the darkness of its final winter, the youth of the 1960s were growing up and growing weary. On the night shift it was as if the summer never came, the 1960s never happened, yet we lived on its fringes, in its shadows, and finally some of us recognized its one great gift-hope.
