The decade between 1961 and 1971 was a time of tumult; of innocence lost, gained, and lost again. During those years, Ralph Osborne moved from the confusions of being 17 to, briefly, believing that at 27, he knew everything. It is, he says, "my version of the Divine Comedy -- more comedic than divine." From Someplace Else is an often hilarious, occasionally tragic account of the exploration of boundaries, inner and outer, through a time of free love and psychedelic adventure. And because the paths between Heaven and Hell, good and bad, and up and down are not linear, this book is necessarily an account of one man's first trip around the circle. Osborne's Holy Grail is identity. His quest, in which he sets out to learn "a small piece of the puzzle --one little thing I could know for certain," takes him from a working-class tenement on the east coast, through the privileged confines of Westmount, west to the cleansing air of the prairies, and east again, to the stoned-out beginnings of Toronto-the-hip where he becomes general manager of the infamous Rochdale College. From Someplace Else is a journey driven by the ever-relevant question: to be, or to become? It's also the slightly surreal description of the thin line between simplicity and squalor.

Twelve-year old Johnny lives way up in a high rise in a big city. When he looks out the window, he sees the world bustling to and fro, but doesn't understand what everyone is doing. Fortunately, he happens to have a big imagination that conjures up an odyssey of discovery and transformation. One night Johnny's pure and naive thoughts appear in the form of jewels, and fly him away to captivating Zodiac Island - whose gatekeeper is an enormous dragon. There, Johnny meets each of the 12 astrological signs in its living form. The problem is, they all want Johnny to choose between them as to which sign is the best! In "Someplace Else," Johnny's delightful decision tells us that, while each of the 12 signs is very much alive and a thing unto itself, when assembled together, they compose a whole new scheme. This provocative idea reveals to Johnny that he should worry no longer when he looks outside his window: life is a system made up of infinite things, and that system works. Barbara Linick has designed a whimsical enchantment using a theme as old as fantasy itself. And, while serving to introduce astrology to children and adults alike, Johnny's intriguing voyage also unfolds for us how the sum can be greater than its parts.

Does Dilbert creator Scott Adams have a hidden camera in your office--or is he just completely in tune with the inept managers, wacky office politics, and nonsensical leadership practices that seem to run wild at your company? Stop looking for the camera. Dilbert has become a hugely successful strip because Adams feels your pain. How? Because this former employee of a major telecommunications company has been there. He's seen the road to failure firsthand. And he knows that to successfully navigate the ludicrous world of business, you can't expect common sense to prevail, you need to keep a sense of humor, and above all, you must always be ready to blame the other guy. The strip's enormous popularity stems from the fact that its millions of readers easily identify with the crazy plots and wacky characters found within the corporate environment. Sure, most companies don't have a bespectacled engineer with a tie permanently curled up, a cynical talking dog, and a manager with two pointy tufts of hair. But it's the outrageous things Dilbert characters do and say that leave readers knowingly nodding their heads and, of course, laughing uproariously. The antics of Dilbert's cast are based not only on Adams's own corporate experiences, but on the numerous e-mails he receives each day about the office dramas of his devoted fans.
