Adam Brown's acclaimed diaTribe column, Adam's Corner, has brought life-transforming diabetes tips to over 1 million people since 2013. In this highly actionable guide, he shares the food, mindset, exercise, and sleep strategies that have had the biggest positive impact on his diabetes - and hopefully yours too! Bright Spots & Landmines is filled with hundreds of effective diabetes tips, questions, and shortcuts, including what to eat to minimize blood sugar swings; helpful strategies to feel less stressed, guilty, and burned out; and simple ways to improve exercise and sleep.

Whether you are newly diagnosed or have had diabetes for over 50 years, this book delivers on its promise: practical diabetes advice that works immediately.

From the STINKING GENIUS responsible for Pryotechnicon: Being a True Account of Cyrano De Bergerac's Further Adventures Among The States and Empires of the Stars, by Himself (dec'd), comes a still-warm midden of fantastical short stories. The Author takes this opportunity to apologise for the feelings of inadequacy that will arise in those who encounter the exquisitudinal stories herein contained, or barely contained -- glittering, lacy, plangent with ideas and pungent with wordplay, all touching on -- sometimes delicately, sometimes with fists, sometimes with greasy intimacy -- diverse curious and amusing notions, such as an endeavour by British colonials to terraform Hell (contrast with the story dealing with the late Carl Linnaeus's attempts to classify the species of Paradise); a planet wrapped in fabric where pirates boom and roar in galleoned steam irons; a look at what it will mean to be disabled in the future ... etc., etc. -- a book to be handled with care, so close is its resemblance to a clutch of Faberge eggs, their Faberge chicks waiting to be hatched by the warmth of the Reader's startled regard. About the Author Adam Browne was born in 1963 and lives in Melbourne, Australia. His stories have been published widely. He received the Aurealis Award for best Australian short story in 2002, and the Chronos Award for best Victorian short story in 2009. His story 'Space Operetta' was adapted as an animated film, Adjustable Cosmos, in 2010.Pyrotechnicon: Being a True Account of Cyrano De Bergerac's Further Adventures Among The States and Empires of the Stars, by Himself (dec'd) is his first novel. 'The title does not mislead. PYROTECHNICON is a literary cabinet of curiosities filled with lush imagery and exotic notions. A delicious concoction of swashbucklery and delight. Highly recommended.'Jeff Vandermeer -- World Fantasy award-winning author of Finch.

The planet Earth and her local colonies hold fast to their aspirations and dreams, while vast corporations control the commerce and a clandestine group called Space Forces protects the peace. The recent discovery of an inhabited planet nearby leads the Space Forces to plan an expedition, but renegade humans threaten to stop it.

One man must stay behind and fend off the attackers, while the other chases the rebels who have fled toward the mysterious new planet!

From the critically acclaimed author of The Preservationist and The Book of Samson, Monster, 1959 is an extraordinary tale of 1950s America---flawed, conflicted, and poised to enter the most culturally upended decade of the century. The United States government has been testing the long-term effects of high-level radiation on a few select islands in the South Pacific. Their efforts have produced killer plants, mole people, and a forty-foot creature named K. Covered in fur and feathers, gifted with unusable butterfly wings and the mental capacity of a goldfish, K. is an evolutionary experiment gone very awry. Although he has no real understanding of his world, he knows when he's hungry, and he knows to follow the drumbeats that lead him, every time, to the tree where a woman is offered to him as a sacrifice by the natives. When a group of American hunters stumble across the island, it's bound to get interesting, especially when the natives offer up the guide's beautiful wife to K. Not to be outdone, the Americans manage to capture him. Back in the States, they start a traveling show. The main attraction: K.
