A satirical, sea-floor look at popular culture, as showcased through the lives of a lovable shark and his oceanic cronies. Sherman’s Lagoon is a fantasy place situated somewhere in the tropics. It's inhabited by a motley crew of sea creatures, whose marine lives suspiciously mirror our own. Through his comic strip, cartoonist Jim Toomey explores many of the issues that we face daily in our world on dry land. His characters attempt new business ventures, go on disastrous dates, try fad diets, and read the latest best-selling books. But, they also have problems that are unique to fish. Should you bring shrimp to the holiday party? Will shrimp be there? Sherman’s Lagoon appeals to adults and children alike. Children, pre-teen, and teens enjoy its underwater theme and the sometimes rough-and-tumble world of life in the ocean. Adults enjoy the social commentary that is a common thread in the strip. There is also an educational aspect to the strip that gives it a unique place in the comics. Toomey explores environmental themes in a light, apolitical way. And, he takes his characters on road trips, where they explore different parts of the ocean and meet native animals along the way. Â

A vibrant portrait of American swimmer Michael Phelps--the most decorated Olympian of all time--from an obscure and awkward 14-year-old to the most scrutinized competitor at the world's biggest sporting event. Before he was old enough to have a driver's license, Michael Phelps had a world record. Before he ever took a college class or turned 20, he had earned distinction by winning 8 medals--6 gold and 2 bronze--at the Athens Olympics, the most in non-boycotted Games. Along the way, he captivated an American television audience and confounded the critics who questioned his ambition. Amazing Pace is the most revealing look we have had at this remarkable athlete based on five years of observation by respected Baltimore Sun journalist, Paul McMullen. Highlights include: Phelps's unusual training regimen which shuns weight-lifting and cross-training and concentrates almost entirely on swimming--4 million yards per year, an average of 11,000 yards per day, every day The impact of parental separation and remarriage on Phelps' adolescence, specifically, how these affected familial support of an Olympian when it was needed most The emotional highs and lows of competitive athleticism, Phelps' decision to turn professional at the young age of 16, and the guilt and pressure that accompanied Phelps' surpassing his siblings' swimming careers Dramatic reporting from the 2004 Olympic Games; including the injury and personal missteps that threatened his life and career in the aftermath of his achievements in Athens McMullen's careful research adds unprecedented and dramatic context to the life of a young athlete who has achieved rock star status among swim fans, who seems remarkably cool on the outside while inside his competitive fire burns with an intensity that has rarely been matched.

This is an autobiography of the challenging life of open water swimming champion, Penny Lee Dean. From ages two to twenty-four, she overcame physical, family, and life adversities to go forth and conquer the Catalina and English Channels. Behind the swimming story was a deep struggle of the relationship with her mother. The intensity of this relationship is part of what drove Penny to achieve her goals. Early in her life, Penny discovered that she had a talent and passion for open water swimming. After a setback when she was ten years old, she set her sights on the Olympics of open water swimming—the English Channel. After college, she traveled to Europe on a Watson scholarship that allowed her to study with the national teams in nine countries and train for her attempt to break the record for the English Channel. Part of the reason Penny wrote this book was the hope that she could help others tackle any of their life challenges and realize their own dreams.

What really goes on behind the wall that surrounds the United States Naval Academy in Annapolis? What are all those midshipmen, future officers in the U.S. Naval and Marine Corps and leaders of our society, thinking as they stand in neat ranks at the parades beloved by tourists? What are their professors actually educating them to do. In Annapolis Autumn, Bruce Fleming, professor of English for nearly two decades at the academy and a prizewinning author, captures the sights, sounds, colors, and conversations of this tradition-steeped institution. In other classes, the cadets learn how to assemble guns, control armored vehicles, man battleships, and kill other human beings. Nothing is ever less than "outstanding, sir!" In English class, however, Fleming introduces his students to nuance and subtext, to the gay poets of World War I, and to the idea that not every piece of literature is designed to be "motivational." Sharing stories from his twenty years at the academy, Fleming explores questions about teaching, the labels "liberal" and "conservative," and the ultimate purpose of higher education—issues made all the more gripping at a time when many of his students will graduate from the classroom to the battlefield.

These are stories about people searching for love or attempting to come to terms with an absurd and menacing world. The characters struggle to free themselves from loneliness and obsession, seeking peace that is seldom easy and sometimes impossible to find. In "The Heart of Alabama" a woman discovers too late that she has lost her two young sons to a world of violence, while in "The Child Soldier" a man searches desperately for love as he cares for his adopted grandson, a boy haunted by the time he has spent as a soldier for the Khmer Rouge. The boy struggles to escape from the ghosts of his past. Of these fourteen stories twelve are set in the deep South and two in the south of France. With a few exceptions the characters inhabit rural landscapes. In "Rising on Christmas" a man paddles a canoe down a whitewater river in Alabama and has a disturbing and dangerous encounter with a religious group who think that a dead deer caught in a hydraulic has a connection with Jesus. The French stories are set in the sparsely populated foothills of the Pyrenees in southwest France. In "Walking to Carcassonne" a man who avoided service during the Vietnam War and whose life is in shambles goes on a walking tour over the Pyrenees to visit the spot where his father died a hero's death during World War II.
