A scientist is lured into a dark conspiracy in “the most frightening book since 1984,” by the New York Times–bestselling author of Man in the Woods (Library Journal). Paul Galambos is an ordinary professor of psychology, struggling to glean any degree of satisfaction or success from his family and his career—until one day he is recruited by a top-secret organization and given carte blanche to pursue experiments and studies as he sees fit, no longer confined to lab rats. This is the life that Paul was destined for, replete with money and respect, if only he can ignore the incessant pull of his conscience. Alternately funny and chilling, Last Night at the Brain Thieves Ball delves into the ethical issues surrounding science and the perils of ambition, and exposes the narcissistic tendencies of humankind. From a National Book Award finalist known for such novels as Endless Love and A Ship Made of Paper, this is a thoughtful, suspenseful tale of “a mad scientist’s dream hovering tantalizingly close to reality” (The New York Times). This ebook features an illustrated biography of Scott Spencer, including rare photos from the author’s personal collection.

A “focused, smart, and engaging” look at the turbulent private life of the pioneering food writer who taught America the art of eating well (Publishers Weekly). In An Extravagant Hunger, the turning points and casual strolls of M.F.K. Fisher’s life are unwrapped and savored. From the RMS Berengaria that ferried her across the sea to France in 1929, to Le Paquis, the Swiss estate that later provided a backdrop for some of the most idyllic moments of her life, the stories of Fisher’s love for food, family, and men are meticulously researched and exquisitely captured in this book. Exploring Fisher’s formative time in Europe with her first husband; her subsequent divorce and remarriage to her creative spark plug, Dillwyn Parrish, and his tragic suicide; and the child she carried from an unnamed father, the story of M.F.K. Fisher’s life becomes as vibrant and passionate as her prolific words on wine and cuisine. Letters and journal entries piece together a dramatic life, but An Extravagant Hunger goes further, bridging the gaps between personal notes and her public persona, offering an engaging and unprecedented depth of intuitive commentary. With a passion of her own, Anne Zimmerman is the careful witness, lingering beside Fisher through her most dramatic and productive years.

THE OTHER JOURNAL: EVIL Description This world is a fallen place rife with suffering, oppression, and violence, a land of tsunamis and earthquakes, genocide and crime sprees. We are surrounded on all sides by brokenness, yet we have difficulty spotting its source. We see the effects of evil, yet we rarely grasp its true nature and breadth. In issue #20 of The Other Journal, our contributors analyze the haunting opacity of evil and call us to name and resist its insidious influence. The issue features essays and reviews by Brian Bantum, Gregory A. Boyd, Andrew W. E. Carlson, Jacob H. Friesenhahn, David Kline, Agustin Maes, Rebecca Martin, Branson Parler, Anthony B. Pinn, Dan Rhodes, and Lauren Wilford; interviews by Allison Backous, Brandy Daniels, Chris Keller, Ronald A. Kuipers, and David Kline with Richard Beck, J. Kameron Carter, Richard Kearney, C.
