A foul-mouthed comedy that follows one man's search for the perfect woman. Marty's living in a Welsh town he hates, doing a job he's lost interest in and so bored he can't even be bothered with sex. But a new life beckons in Australia. It's also a chance to get away from his stupid mates, the loveable loser John and the ultra-macho Wasp Boy. Maybe he'll even meet an exquisite girl like his Doctor Who heroine, Sarah Jane Smith, and live happily ever after... Looking for Sarah Jane Smith - For anyone who suspects life's a bit rubbish. Part road trip and part celebration of idiotic male friendship, Looking for Sarah Jane Smith is sure to strike a chord with those who appreciate Withnail & I, Peep Show and Bill Hicks. Length: 66,000 words. "...if there's one thing that stands out about this, it's how bloody funny it is. I actually packed Looking for Sarah Jane Smith for a long-haul flight and such a page-turner did it prove to be that I finished it within a couple of hours." - Living Abroad Magazine "While not in any means a Doctor Who book, Looking for Sarah Jane Smith is a good example of how Doctor Who has infiltrated the national psyche, as well as portraying how humans relate to fantasy figures... A post-modern laddist cult classic." - Kasterborous (Doctor Who website) "...A bitter, crude, but funny book... These boys are not particularly likeable, but their story is raw, honest, unsophisticated and rooted in bittersweet reality." - Post Newspapers "Franklin's prose combines the earthiness of Irvine Welsh with the biting sarcasm of a young Kingsley Amis as he chronicles the adventures and mishaps of Marty and his two loser mates." - Community Newspaper Group "An agreeably raucous and politically incorrect novel that touches on Dr Who and men behaving badly. Its strong language and adult scenes make it the perfect Christmas gift for that younger brother or impressionable nephew." - The West Australian (Please note this story is also available as part of the bargain-priced anthology, Evil Arse Soup: Three Ultra-Dark Comedies).

Sixteen-year-old Bert Rosenbaum is living in the Bronx with his family when his brother, Philip, has his first psychotic breakdown. Philip communicates with extraterrestrials through radio stations only he can hear, discovers a homosexual plot to control the world, and burns Bert's cherished Dylan albums to protect him from evil subliminal messages. Haunted by the shadow of his brother's madness, Bert graduates from college, lands a job in the Department of Sewers, and settles into a small, dingy Manhattan apartment. Confused by his simultaneous attraction to a male coworker and a married woman, stuck in a job that bores him, and surrounded by an odd assortment of neighbors whose troubled lives affect his own, Bert becomes convinced he is following in his brother's footsteps. When three space aliens arrive, Bert's fears seem to be realized. At first menacing, though eventually claiming his friendship, the aliens provide a hilarious spoof on contemporary American culture. Yet whether they are real or imagined, through them Bert becomes ready to take control of his life, come to terms with his sexual identity, and embark upon his first serious relationship. In this poignant yet comic tour de force, Eugene Stein creates a phantasmagoric Manhattan, a city where craziness is manifested everywhere, and where alienation displaces family and community. Straitjacket & Tie is the bold and memorable introduction of Eugene Stein's expansive talents as a novelist.

Since first appearing in 1998, Garner's Modern American Usage has established itself as the preeminent guide to the effective use of the English language. Brimming with witty, erudite essays on troublesome words and phrases, GMAU authoritatively shows how to avoid the countless pitfalls that await unwary writers and speakers whether the issues relate to grammar, punctuation, word choice, or pronunciation. An exciting new feature of this third edition is Garner's Language-Change Index, which registers where each disputed usage in modern English falls on a five-stage continuum from nonacceptability (to the language community as a whole) to acceptability, giving the book a consistent standard throughout. GMAU is the first usage guide ever to incorporate such a language-change index. The judgments are based both on Garner's own original research in linguistic corpora and on his analysis of hundreds of earlier studies. Another first in this edition is the panel of critical readers: 120-plus commentators who have helped Garner reassess and update the text, so that every page has been improved. Bryan A. Garner is a writer, grammarian, lexicographer, teacher, and lawyer. He has written professionally about English usage for more than 28 years, and his work has achieved widespread renown. David Foster Wallace proclaimed that Bryan Garner is a genius and William Safire called the book excellent. In fact, due to the strength of his work on GMAU, Garner was the grammarian asked to write the grammar-and-usage chapter for the venerable Chicago Manual of Style. His advice on language matters is second to none.

For the Roman Catholic Church, the golden anniversary of the opening of the Second Vatican Council will not mark a golden 50 years since the Council opened. The promise of Vatican II to become a new Pentecost evaporated into a retreat from the Church when its leaders poorly implement the Councils changes. In a Church, excited by the boldness and the spirit of hope of Pope John XXIII, high hopes and great expectations were replaced by caution and curtailment. As this change in spirit seeped through the Church, the hesitancy of a less emboldened church leadership replaced the strong reforming commitments of Pope John.
