EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

“Full of wit and wisdom, and riotously funny to boot. A phenomenal debut!” —Ransom Riggs, New York Times bestselling author of Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children “As irreverent as it is gratifying.” —David Arnold, New York Times bestselling author of Kids of Appetite and Mosquitoland A grieving teen faces dangerous classmates, reckless friends, and the one-year anniversary of his sister’s devastating death in this poignant, quirky, often humorous novel that’s perfect for fans of Jeff Zentner and Brendan Kiely. Kirby Burns is about to have the second worst day of his life. Tomorrow is the one-year anniversary of the worst day of his life, and in the three hundred and sixty-four days since then he hasn’t stopped running: from his family, his memories, and the horse-sized farm dogs that chase him to the bus stop every morning. But he can’t run forever, and as This Might Hurt a Bit begins, Kirby and his friends PJ and Jake sneak out of his house to play a prank whose consequences follow them to school the next day, causing a chain reaction of mayhem and disaster. It’s a story that’s touching and funny, an authentic meditation on the pain of loss, and the challenge of getting paint to stick to cows.

In this highly-anticipated debut collection of short stories by Chicago's legendary lover, fighter, doorman, and raconteur, Steve Silver; This Might Hurt A Bit will make you feel less lonely and more alive if you just go with it. These stories, touched by both history and legend are rife with physical and emotional pain. Starting with his childhood and continuing through his time as the door guy at Chicago's notorious punk rock club, Exit, Steve's stories are as funny as they are scary. Rendered with complete emotional honesty, readers will be surprised to find tales that are both bizarre and uplifting at the same time! Frankly, This Might Hurt A Bit, does. But it also shines a light on the mystery of how tough guys are made, and why they so often turn out to be the best-loved among us. Come with him as he grows up poor but interesting, hard but kind. Travel back to the beginnings of the rock and roll revolution that was the 60's and see how it profoundly affected a kid that needed saving. The music was ultimately what formed him into a guardian of punks, street kids, lost souls, rock stars, and bad guys. The journey from the middle of nowhere to the center of the scene is a winding one for sure, each of the characters along the way are worthy of their own book. Steve spent time with many colorful people, and his stories recount the adventures and emotions of many of their experiences as if it were only yesterday. " I've spent some hairy scary times with Steve - he made some of them less scary, a few of them, more. The prospect of him now staring down words and punching metaphors in the face is quite electrifying." Martin Atkins-Musician, Author and Educator.

EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

Michelle Au started medical school armed only with a surfeit of idealism, a handful of old ER episodes for reference, and some vague notion about "helping people." This Won't Hurt a Bit is the story of how she grew up and became a real doctor. It's a no-holds-barred account of what a modern medical education feels like, from the grim to the ridiculous, from the heartwarming to the obscene. Unlike most medical memoirs, however, this one details the author's struggles to maintain a life outside of the hospital, in the small amount of free time she had to live it. And, after she and her husband have a baby early in both their medical residencies, Au explores the demands of being a parent with those of a physician, two all-consuming jobs in which the lives of others are very literally in her hands. Au's stories range from hilarious to heartbreaking and hit every note in between, proving more than anything that the creation of a new doctor (and a new parent) is far messier, far more uncertain, and far more gratifying than one could ever expect.

EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

The second book in an epic tale of enchanting adventure, sequel to Wolfskin, from the acclaimed author of the Sevenwaters series "This is a story for a winter night. Come the dawn, our spirits are lifted." Sydney Morning Herald "Captivating historical fantasy" Publishers Weekly Fail to cross the Fool's Tide while the strange midsummer calm lulls the roiling currents, and the sea will have you if the enemy does not... At his coming of age, Thorvald learns a devastating secret, and steals away on a perilous voyage in search of the father he has never known. His loyal shadow, Creidhe, daughter of a Wolfskin warrior and a wise woman, was never meant to be part of this desperate journey. But Thorvald has underestimated her. The Long Knife people of the Lost Isles are not what the weary travellers were expecting. Suspiciou, frightened and ruled by a cruel tyrant, they will not explain why Creidhe must hide her golden hair from sight, or why there are so few children amongst them. . . But then a baby is born, and Creidhe discovers the horrific truth of the curse the vengeful Unspoken have placed on the Long Knife people-and the only possible solution. For the future of the islands depends on a visionary child: the powerful seer of the Unspoken, Foxmask. Snatched away in infancy, the boy is held on the forbidding Isle of Clouds, protected by ancient forces of nature. To return him to the Unspoken and restore peace to the islands, the Long Knife people must endure the annual ritual of the hunt. But there are deeper secrets in this battle for survival, and another way-an unthinkable way-to lift the curse. One that the newcomers discover when it may be too late. . . Fans of Marion Zimmer Bradley, Isobelle Carmody and Robin Hobb will love Juliet Marillier.

EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

Graduate schools churn out tens of thousands of Ph.D.’s and M.A.’s every year. Half of all college courses are taught by adjunct faculty. The chances of an academic landing a tenure-track job seem only to shrink as student loan and credit card debts grow. What’s a frustrated would-be scholar to do? Can he really leave academia? Can a non-academic job really be rewarding—and will anyone want to hire a grad-school refugee? With “So What Are You Going to Do with That?” Susan Basalla and Maggie Debelius—Ph.D.’s themselves—answer all those questions with a resounding “Yes!” A witty, accessible guide full of concrete advice for anyone contemplating the jump from scholarship to the outside world, “So What Are You Going to Do with That?” covers topics ranging from career counseling to interview etiquette to translating skills learned in the academy into terms an employer can understand and appreciate. Packed with examples and stories from real people who have successfully made this daunting—but potentially rewarding— transition, and written with a deep understanding of both the joys and difficulties of the academic life, this fully revised and up-to-date edition will be indispensable for any graduate student or professor who has ever glanced at her CV, flipped through the want ads, and wondered, “What if?” “I will absolutely be recommending this book to our graduate students exploring their career options—I’d love to see it on the coffee tables in department lounges!”—Robin B. Wagner, former associate director for graduate career services, University of Chicago
