Thirteen authors, including Gail Z. Martin, David Gerrold, and Jonathan Maberry, come together to pen short stories innovating Sherlock Holmes, adapting and revolutionizing the iconic character. Sherlock Holmes is one of the most iconic and lasting figures in literature. His feats of detection are legendary, and he continues to capture audiences today in stories, movies, and on TV. In this new anthology, Baker Street Irregulars, authors present the celebrated detective in more than a dozen wildly entertaining new ways. In Ryk Spoor’s thrilling "The Adventures of a Reluctant Detective,” Sherlock is a re-creation in a holodeck. In Hildy Silverman’s mesmerizing "A Scandal in the Bloodline,” Sherlock is a vampire. Heidi McLaughlin sends Sherlock back to college, while Beth Patterson, in the charming "Code Cracker,” turns him into a parrot. The settings range from Russia in the near-future to a reality show, from a dystopian world to an orchestra. Without losing the very qualities that make Sherlock so illustrious a character, these authors spin new webs of mystery around their own singular riff on one of fiction’s truly singular characters.

Whether you need a new tool or just inspiration, Seven Web Frameworks in Seven Weeks explores modern options, giving you a taste of each with ideas that will help you create better apps. You'll see frameworks that leverage modern programming languages, employ unique architectures, live client-side instead of server-side, or embrace type systems. You'll see everything from familiar Ruby and JavaScript to the more exotic Erlang, Haskell, and Clojure. The rapid evolution of web apps demands innovative solutions: this survey of frameworks and their unique perspectives will inspire you and get you thinking in new ways to meet the challenges you face daily. This book covers seven web frameworks that are influencing modern web applications and changing web development: Sinatra, CanJS, AngularJS, Ring, Webmachine, Yesod, Immutant. Each of these web frameworks brings unique and powerful ideas to bear on building apps. Embrace the simplicity of Sinatra, which sheds the trappings of large frameworks and gets back to basics with Ruby. Live in the client with CanJS, and create apps with JavaScript in the browser. Be declarative with AngularJS; say what you want, not how to do it, with a mixture of declarative HTML and JavaScript. Turn the web into data with Ring, and use Clojure to make data your puppet. Become a master of advanced HTTP with Webmachine, and focus the power of Erlang. Prove web theorems with Yesod; see how Haskell's advanced type system isn't just for academics. Develop in luxury with Immutant, an enlightened take on the enterprise framework. Seven Web Frameworks will influence your work, no matter which framework you currently use. Welcome to a wider web. What You Need: You'll need Windows, MacOS X or Linux, along with your favorite web browser. Each chapter will cover what you need to download and which language versions are required.

Robert Mitchum was one of the most charismatic stars of the ‘classic Hollywood’ era. His screen persona was the essence of cool: tough but vulnerable, accepting of his fate with languid charm and easy humour. His films have often been seen through the lens of film noir, but they had something else in common too: the characters he played in Out of the Past, The Big Steal, His Kind of Woman, Second Chance, Where Danger Lives, and Angel Face seemed irrevocably drawn to Mexico. Mitchum’s sequence of films south of the border coincided with the advent of the ‘golden age’ of Mexico’s own film industry, a new cinematic wave that drew on serious artistic influences from the muralists to Sergei Eisenstein, and that was led by director Emilio Fernández and cinematographer Gabriel Figueroa whose 1943 film María Candelaria, starring former Hollywood siren Dolores del Río, had won a prize at Cannes. Under the Roosevelt administration’s ‘Good Neighbour’ policy - a wartime effort to court friendly Latin American countries - Hollywood’s portrayal of Mexico changed: out went the all-purpose exoticism, where ‘south of the border’ was a metaphor for the loosening of moral and sexual standards, and in came a more nuanced approach. In this authoritative study, Liam White encourages us to take a fresh look at how Mitchum’s films broke with Hollywood convention in the way they depicted Mexico; how Mexico’s own film industry boomed, becoming the first example of ‘world cinema’ to have an impact on the post-War world; and how its success attracted significant US talent - from John Steinbeck to John Ford - to work on bi-national projects.

Bill Bryden's Cottesloe Company, which flourished at Peter Hall's National Theatre, was the English theatre's only true ensemble of the last thirty or so years. Impossible Plays tells the story of the company and the many actors and musicians connected to it. Co-written by Keith Dewhurst, author of eight plays for the group, and Jack Shepherd, a founder-actor, it explains the ideas behind the company's work and how the work was staged, and provides an idiosyncratic, lively and deeply personal take on the company. "The search was always to find a popular theatre, a form of theatre that would draw into it people from all backgrounds, not just the cultured and the educated." Beginning with a Royal Court Theatre Sunday night performance in 1970, the story of one company's aim to create a popular theatre form includes such milestone productions as The Mystery cycle of plays and Lark Rise to Candleford. With photographs by John Haynes, Michael Mayhew and Nobby Clark, Impossible Plays is a glorious and timely tribute to one of theatre's most innovative companies.

Jack Gray-handsome premier 21st Century agent of last resort--is a complex, moody, but engaging and humorous hero. From his home base at a ranch near San Diego, California, the missions take him around the world in a dangerous, corporate-ruled near future.He is a PhD in History, reserve Army officer, master of his own martial arts style, and a professional killer when needed, on government service.He is, as well, a ladies' man, but none of his ladies are the bubble heads of last century's fiction (usually back then simply called 'the girl'). His friends and lovers are strong women with PhDs, accomplished careers of their own, and looks that could melt glass. The passion is steamy and mutual.And yet, Jack Gray operates from a psychic dark spot, a wound deep in his soul, and a ghost that will not leave him alone. He is a widower, whose late wife Catherine meets him in airports, in remote deserts, on volcanic islands, and in busy places like Times Square--murdered years ago by a hidden killer Jack has yet to track down.Molly Grace is a new, wonderful woman in Jack's life--the widow of an assassinated fellow agent. Stunning Molly Grace, of mixed Hawaiian-Caucasian heritage, will help him build a new family if he lets her--but time is running out. Nobody since Catherine has affected Jack as Molly does--but does he dare risk involving her in his deadly and dangerous work?Molly is willing to wait for Jack, but only for a time. She must get on with her life--and Jack must recover his own--while fighting the world's most terrifying master criminals... and finally laying to rest the ghosts of his own dark past.Stealthy global terror master Doctor Night has hijacked an orbital sniper satellite designed to assassinate world leaders. Now his world terrorism brokerage, Black Umbrella, is using the stolen Orbital Sniper Technology (OST) for global blackmail. Langley sends in their best man--Jack Gray. Backing him are the brilliant Claire Lightfield (CIA/Langley) and Johannes Rector (Compass News spy brokerage) as he begins a far-flung investigation that takes him to a mysterious, foggy castle off the coast of a remote Scottish island, then to a former ancient Roman outpost off the coast of Sicily, and finally to a historic castle in the heart of Washington, D.C.Along the way, he tangles with imported martial artists, ghostly killers, German crocodiles, and Black Umbrella's shadowy army of female assassins headed by a modern-day Gorgon named Sombra (Shade).Jack Gray is a worthy successor of Leslie Charteris' Saint and Ian Fleming's Bond, while Doctor Night copies some terrifying pages from the playbook of Doctor Moriarty, Sherlock Holmes' crime lord and spider who pulses at the center of a crime web.The classic stuff is all there--updated for a new millennium and its unthinkable new dangers. We catch hints of Fleming's SPECTRE in the Black Umbrella terror brokerage, even as Jack Gray tracks down two ancient Cold War technologies for orbital spying (USAF's Corona and CIA's Keyhole satellites).In the 21st Century, Doctor Night's rogue satellite is a sophisticated drone killer that shoots bullets instead of photos. World leaders are dying one by one, as a prelude to a greater dying from the radioactive cargo on board OST--unless Jack Gray can save the day.As his elegant, gorgeous friend and lover Dr. Minica Albrisi explains while helping him select a cool suit: Anything goes with gray.And anything goes with Jack Gray.Passion may slow him down at moments, but nothing can stop him when he's on a mission

Jack Hamma is in the Arabian desert pointing a sniper rifle at a heavily armed youth. His finger is itching to pull the trigger. He hesitates, a machine gun is leveled at him, he fires and all hell breaks loose. It's not just in the desert where everything falls apart. Kashmere, his wife, walks out on him, his baby daughter is kidnapped and that's just the start of Jack's downward spiral. Jack Hamma, James Bond with a sense of humor, is cool, calm and collected when the chips are down. Resourceful in an emergency, he needs every last bit of his resourcefulness and his cool to overcome what fate is about to unleash. Review: Another cracker with Jack Hamma as the action hero, although he doesn't regard himself as one. I have read all the Jack Hamma books as they came out and have enjoyed them all. This one gripped and held my interest from the start and I read it in one session. Whilst liking all the Jack Hamma books one has favourites, this book joins them. If you like very readable action adventures with a touch of humor, this book is one you'll enjoy. I thoroughly recommend it

The Poet s Mistake

Capps, Jack L. Emily Dickinson's Reading: 1836–1886. ... In Alice's Adventures in Wonderland and Through the Looking-Glass, edited by Peter Hunt.

What our tendency to justify the mistakes in poems reveals about our faith in poetry—and about how we read Keats mixed up Cortez and Balboa. Heaney misremembered the name of one of Wordsworth's lakes. Poetry—even by the greats—is rife with mistakes. In The Poet's Mistake, critic and poet Erica McAlpine gathers together for the first time numerous instances of these errors, from well-known historical gaffes to never-before-noticed grammatical incongruities, misspellings, and solecisms. But unlike the many critics and other readers who consider such errors felicitous or essential to the work itself, she makes a compelling case for calling a mistake a mistake, arguing that denying the possibility of error does a disservice to poets and their poems. Tracing the temptation to justify poets' errors from Aristotle through Freud, McAlpine demonstrates that the study of poetry's mistakes is also a study of critical attitudes toward mistakes, which are usually too generous—and often at the expense of the poet's intentions. Through remarkable close readings of Wordsworth, Keats, Browning, Clare, Dickinson, Crane, Bishop, Heaney, Ashbery, and others, The Poet's Mistake shows that errors are an inevitable part of poetry's making and that our responses to them reveal a great deal about our faith in poetry—and about how we read.
