Twas the night (okay, more like the week) before Christmas and little Joshua Barker is in desperate need of a Christmas miracle. Josh is sure he saw Santa take a shovel to the head and now the seven year old has only one prayer: Please Santa, come back from the dead! But coming to Earth, seeking a small child whose wish needs granting, is none other than Archangel Raziel. Unfortunately, he's not sporting the brightest halo in the bunch and before you can say 'Kris Kringle,' he's botched his sacred mission and sent the residents of Pine Cove headlong into Christmas chaos, culminating in the most hilarious and horrifying holiday party the town has ever seen.

In response to actual questions many people have asked him about angels and demons, well-known author and philosophy professor Peter Kreeft separates fact from fantasy and myth from reality as he answers 100 common questions about these spiritual beings. Based on a very popular college course he teaches on this subject, this book responds to the incredible amount of interest in angelic beings and attempts to clear up some of the misinformation abounding in the numerous books today on what we know about these mysterious spirits. Drawing on the Bible, traditional Church teaching and St. Thomas Aquinas, Kreeft gives straight, clear answers to the perennial and philosophical questions asked about angels and demons throughout time. In his typical lucid, profound and sometimes humorous style, Kreeft answers such questions as "What are angels made of?", "How do angels communicate with God?", "How do angels communicate with us?", "Do demons, or devils, or evil spirits really exist?" and many more. Includes angel art. Peter Kreeft, Ph.D., is a professor of philosophy at Boston College. He is a regular contributor to several Catholic publications, is in wide demand as a speaker at conferences, and is the author of over 20 books including Back to Virtue, Heaven the Heart's Deepest Longing and Fundamentals of the Faith.

“In the 1860s, western alienation began at Yonge Street, and George Brown was the Preston Manning of the day.” So begins Christopher Moore’s fascinating 1990s look at the messy, dramatic, crisis-ridden process that brought Canada into being – and at the politicians, no more lovable or united than our own, who, against all odds, managed to forge a deal that worked. From the first chapter, he turns a fresh, perceptive, and lucid eye on the people, the issues, and the political theories of Confederation – from John A. Macdonald’s canny handling of leadership to the invention of federalism and the Senate, from the Quebec question to the influence of political philosophers Edmund Burke and Walter Bagehot. This is a book for all Canadians who love their country – and fear for it after the failure of the constitution-making of the 1990s. Here is a clear, entertaining reintroduction to the ideas and processes that forged the nation. From the Hardcover edition.

"A completely unique take on life in hell. Snappy dialog and a bizarre backdrop set this adventure tale apart from the pack." --Christopher Moore, author of Practical Demonkeeping, The Stupidest Angel, and Lamb: The Gospel According to Biff, Christ's Childhood Pal The Distance Travelled By Brett Alexander Savory "A completely unique take on life in hell. Snappy dialog and a bizarre backdrop set this adventure tale apart from the pack." --Christopher Moore, author of Practical Demonkeeping, The Stupidest Angel, and Lamb: The Gospel According to Biff, Christ's Childhood Pal Why have certain denizens of Hell taken to throwing farm animals through innocent folks' kitchen windows? How long does it take a dead, desiccated gas attendant to walk out to his pumps? What sort of relationship do the Lord of the Underworld and Hell's Head Torturer have besides the obvious professional one? What kind of air conditioning units do they use down there? Do they listen to Cyndi Lauper? What is Hell's official currency, and by what criteria did The Big Red Fella choose it? Can pigs eat cereal with a spoon? What nameless beast dwells in the flame pit near the hole to Upside? What is Upside, for that matter, and why should you care anyway? Within the pages of this book, you will find the answers to these pressing questions, as well as answers to other, significantly less pressing, questions...Welcome to Hell! Where your torture sessions are scheduled...And pigs fall from the sky...And a little girl from the Upside is missing...And it's up to one of Hell's least likely denizens to find her...Along with the girl's brother, a walking skeleton of a man who may just be older than time, a giant Hell rat and a gorgeous woman with too many secrets, he ventures into the heart of Hell to find some answers...And maybe miss a torture session or two.“Brett A. Savory goes to Hell--not in a handbasket, but behind the wheel of a kickass El Camino--in this un-Divine Comedy. Slapstick, surreal, and definitely scorching, The Distance Travelled offers mirth and mayhem with (dare I say?) devilish glee, and on the far side of the heat is a moving meditation on the role of here in the hereafter. It's a wild and wonderful journey, so climb aboard...but look out for the flying pigs!” --Douglas E. Winter, author of Run “Two questions for Brett Savory: 'What're you smoking?' And 'May we please all have some?' The Distance Travelled is an ergot-spawned argot of a novel that nabs its readers for a ride Charlie Starkweather'd be too chicken to take. Not since Lord of the Flies has fiction been so rough on a Piggy. Now, where'd I put those damned glasses?” --Michael Marano, author of Dawn Song “I loved it. Stylish, fun, and neatly turned. Distinctive and bizarre—and I mean that in a good way—this is a fine ride through some very unusual territories." --Michael Marshall Smith, author of Spares and Only Forward “True Grit meets Falling Angel...The Distance Travelled reads like a blissed-out round-the-table collaboration between Kinky Friedman, Clive Barker, Jim Thompson, Dante, and Thorne Smith. It's a Hell we could all learn to love--kind of--and Brett Savory is a very bad man. But the good news is that it's safer for us all that he's writing this stuff down rather than living it.” --Peter Crowther, author of Escardy Gap (with James Lovegrove) and The Longest Single Note

“Hilarious, always inventive, this is a book for all, especially uptight English teachers, bardolaters, and ministerial students.” —Dallas Morning News Fool—the bawdy and outrageous New York Times bestseller from the unstoppable Christopher Moore—is a hilarious new take on William Shakespeare’s King Lear…as seen through the eyes of the foolish liege’s clownish jester, Pocket. A rousing tale of “gratuitous shagging, murder, spanking, maiming, treason, and heretofore unexplored heights of vulgarity and profanity,” Fool joins Moore’s own Lamb, Fluke, The Stupidest Angel, and You Suck! as modern masterworks of satiric wit and sublimely twisted genius, prompting Carl Hiassen to declare Christopher Moore “a very sick man, in the very best sense of the word.”

Today he is Samuel Hunter, a successful Santa Barbara insurance salesman with a Mercedes, a condo, and a hollow, invented life. Then one day, destiny offers him the dangerous gift of love—in the exquisite form of Calliope Kincaid—and a curse in the unheralded appearance of an ancient god by the name of Coyote.
