Join the adventure of four curious boys as they dare to visit a suspected haunted house. "So far our night had been uneventful and now we were at the pinnacle of our quest. If there was nothing up here, there was nothing to find and our adventure would be over. There would be no story to tell and we had risked getting into big trouble to come up empty handed. Still, as I stood there at the top of the stairs, I couldn't shake the feeling that there was something in the cold darkness of that house: a presence beyond that of four curious boys. Maybe it was a sensation left over from the previous occupants, or my imagination running wild." "I've been waiting a long time to get this story finished. I believe it will be appealing to adults and youth. This is only the beginning of the Questors' adventures." -Louis Paul DeGrado

Accountant, virgin, large-bottomed man of unusual drabness, Edmund Crowe wants nothing more than to fit in. Trouble is, nothing feels right. Least of all the Roundhouse: Mecca to Camden's undesirables. Assigned the job of balancing the Roundhouse's books - and thereby ensure its demise - Edmund is advised to keep his purpose there a secret. But then Barney appears on the scene: Barney the lothario, the fine-handed gypsy, and hitherto the undisputed king of the Roundhouse. Before long, Edmund and Barney are fighting it out for the affections of an ice-cream coquette called Lia. Sex, drugs, rock'n roll and mutant rats swiftly follow as Edmund's life changes in previously unimaginable ways. Charting the progress of Barney, Lia and Crowe, from the orgiastic, mind-bending '70s to the social-climbing, emotionally-famished '90s; from crumbling cityscape to lavish country retreat, Kings of the Roundhouse is a brilliantly twisted darkly comic novel about love, friendship, men, money, and the life-transforming power of lightning strikes.
The wealth of excavation in Cyprus conducted across a period of nearly a century and a half has revealed much evidence of ancient building of all functional categories. This picture extends over a vast range of time (ca. 10,000 years) since Cyprus is probably the place where the earliest substantial building known, the Neolithic round house style is better presented than anywhere else in the world. It is the aim of this book to set forth and document the building tradition which hitherto has received no detailed exposition. The book will fill several gaps in the library shelves at one and the same time: architectural history that presents all the archaeological evidence.
Knowing how to box is not enough if you want to call yourself a kickboxer. Since kickboxing combines kicks and strikes, we will now look at the three basic kicks: the front kick, roundhouse kick, and side thrust kick. Which kick you use depends on your position, on your distance to the target, and on what you are trying to accomplish. The benefit of a kick over a punch is that you can reach any target on your opponent's body. While the hands can be used for punching to the head and body, the legs can be used for kicking to the head, body, and legs. In this sense, kicks are more versatile than punches. All kicks can be thrown with the lead or rear leg. In general, your lead leg is used much like the jab: to gauge distance. Since your lead leg is closer to the target than your rear leg, it is faster and needs less movement. Your rear leg, by contrast, has the potential to create a more powerful kick. Throughout your training, we will explore those kicks that are the most practical for competition kickboxing, and learn their application from beginning to advanced stages. Kickboxing: From Initiation To Knockout comprises a series of short books with focus on learning specific techniques and strategies for the exciting sport of competition kickboxing. With plenty of pictures, each book breaks the material down into bite-size pieces that allow you to practice to perfection. The material in this book previously appeared in Complete Kickboxing, now out of print.
