Buzz Sawyer was considered one of the most athletically gifted wrestlers to campaign in the 1980s. Opinions vary on the man as most of the wrestlers who worked with him did not have a flattering assessment of his personality or character. All would concede, however, that he was a genuine bad ass in an era of tough guys. What was undeniable was his charisma and ability to entertain in one of wrestling's Golden eras. Buzz Sawyer would be one of the most popular wrestlers on the Georgia circuit whose time was cut short by alcoholism and drug use.

The short lived but murderous spree of the 'Mad Dog' and his accomplice, 'Meatball', was one of the most horrific in New England history. For ten weeks, liquor store, convenience store, gas station owners and those who ran other small businesses lived in a state of increasing terror. A set of small-scale robberies were accompanied by beatings and murder completely out of proportion to the situation, all for the sake of a few dollars.Joseph Taborsky, the 'Mad Dog', killed seven innocent men and women, and seriously injured many more, leaving them for dead. The vast majority of these killings took place in that short, ten-week spell. His semi moronic, illiterate accomplice, Arthur Culombe, known as 'Meatball', added to the tally as the merciless pair struck repeatedly.But there was much more to Taborsky's wanton evil than just homicide, assault and robbery. From the case against he and Culombe, the journey towards the establishment of the now universal Miranda rights was begun. And more, there were unseen victims. Those were the families of the twin killers; good people whose own lives were ruined by the crest of hatred that rocked the usually passive state of Connecticut during those crime filled weeks, and for many, revenge filled, years after.

The true story of one of pro wrestlingÕs most charismatic, feared, and beloved icons Who was Maurice the man, and who was Mad Dog the character? Maurice ÒMad DogÓ Vachon was a gold medalist, a pro-wrestling legend, and a pop culture icon Ñ but he was also a son, husband, and father. Mad Dog explores VachonÕs career and personal struggles with painstakingly detailed historical research and through both MauriceÕs own recollections and those of the people who knew him best. As a young man, Maurice could have chosen a dark criminal path, but then wrestling and family changed him. Chronicling his slow but steady rise to prominence across America and internationally in some of pro wrestlingÕs most important territories, this in-depth biography shows how VachonÕs life came to be defined by the words of Mark Twain: ÒItÕs not the size of the dog in the fight, itÕs the size of the fight in the dog.Ó Fiercely proud, motivated, and supremely talented, VachonÕs story is also the amazing tale of how a lifelong make-believe heel became a real-life hero outside of the ring. With a foreword by his brother, Paul Vachon, and an afterword by his widow, Kathie Vachon.

Life During Wartime, As Seen Through the Eyes of Two Congolese Teenagers Set amid the chaos of West Africa's civil wars, Emmanuel Dongala's striking new novel tells the story of two teenagers growing up while rival ethnic groups fight for control of their country. At age sixteen, Johnny is a member of the Death Dealers, a rebel faction bent on seizing power. Even as he is drawn into the rebels' program of terror, Johnny Mad Dog, as he calls himself, retains his youthful exuberance-searching for girls, good times, and adventure. Sixteen-year-old Laokolé, for her part, dreams of finishing high school and becoming an engineer, but as rogue militias prepare to sack the city, she is forced to leave home with her mother and brother-and then finds herself alone and running from the likes of Johnny. Acclaimed in France, Johnny Mad Dog is a coming-of-age story like no other; Dongala's masterful use of dual narrators makes the novel an unusually vivid and affecting tale of the struggle to survive-and to retain one's humanity-in terrifying times.

It is the summer of 1728, and we are in the village of Sherburn, in the West Riding of Yorkshire, with its handsome church, boys’ grammar-school, ancient tavern and tranquil rural population. Below the church lies the site of the palace of the kings of Elmete. Nearby, across the common and past the woods, are the grand houses of commissioner of the peace Squire Hawley at Scarthingwell Hall and magistrate Sir Ralph Gascoigne at Parlington Hall. An apparent conspiracy to re-establish the sixth-century Ancient British kingdom of Elmete has worrying, and sometimes hilarious, consequences for the hapless vicar, whose meagre detective skills are stretched to their limit. Both the squire and Sir Ralph are only too happy to leave it all to the vicar – until, that is, the vicar is arrested for gun-smuggling and the squire disappears. It then transpires, however, that the conspiracy is merely camouflage for a more interesting crime altogether … This neat tale both faithfully recreates the atmosphere of an eighteenth-century Yorkshire village and offers the modern reader rare entertainment.

The moving story of the author's adopted Rottweiler mix, Lou, a free-thinking heroic dog who changed his life forever Born of guard dogs on a secret marijuana farm in Mendicino County, Lou truly was one dog in a million. On the winter day that the ailing, tick-infested feral pup was rescued by Steve Duno, neither dog nor man had a clue as to what they were getting into, or where the relationship would lead. Last Dog on the Hill tells the story of an indigent young Rottweiler mix who, after abandoning his pack and the hills of his birth, went on to change the lives of hundreds of people and dogs, including the author's, whose career as a behaviorist and writer was made possible through Lou's extraordinary intelligence and heart. Lou won the respect of gang members, foiled an armed robbery, caught a rapist, fought coyotes and kidnappers, comforted elderly war veterans and Alzheimer patients in their final days, taught ASL to kids, learned scores of unique behaviors and tricks, amassed a vocabulary of nearly 200 words, helped rehabilitate hundreds of aggressive dogs and saved them from euthanasia. He was also a clown, consummate performer and Steve's best friend for sixteen years. His story will make readers laugh and cry in equal measures.

Fiction. Young Adult. Even before it was hidden beneath the waters of the Great Sacandaga Reservoir, the Sacandaga Valley had more than its share of ghosts. No one knows the stories of that inundated Adirondack Valley better than octagenarian Don Bowman. In this new volume, edited by folklorist Vaughn Ward, you will encounter the darker side of the supernatural in that lost valley. THE WITCH OF MAD DOG HILL is replete with chilling tales of those who had dealings with the devil, shape shifters, witches, and haunted houses. All these stories, according to Don Bowman, are true and you'll find the storyteller himself in more than a few of them. You'll also find, as folklore, history, and Don's creative eye intertwine, that these are tales written by a man who can recognize the darkness, but always celebrates the light -- without ever losing his sense of humor in the process. -- Joseph Bruchac, Adirondack writer and storyteller.
