Looking for Something is a retrospective look at the work of the artist Brian Kershisnik through his first three prolific decades. Kershisnik is a puzzling and puzzled explorer, both a part of, and separate from his contemporaries. An enthusiastic and optimistic examiner of triumphs and tragedies, Kershisnik exposes the common in the hero and the heroic in the quotidian. He aspires more to the fantastic and rich human warmth of Giotto rather than the cold and distant impressive brilliance of the otherworldly high Renaissance. His life has been lovely, tragic, and bewildering, and his work explores that bewilderment with a mixture of melancholy and whimsy that feels extremely and encouragingly human--this is art that is meant to be lived with. This book, the first publication of Kershisnik's work in over fifteen years, contains more than two hundred color images of some of his most popular paintings, as well as several essays that put his work into the larger context of his age.

Mike Monaghan is the bartender at the Engine Room, a meeting place for the small but thriving community of gay men in Cold Falls, New York. As Mike pours beer, wipes glasses and hears everything, he's also witness to the men who come here looking for what they need--sex, direction, friendship, spiritual fulfillment, and love. People like: Stephen Darby--As an accountant, he knows many secrets. But Stephen has his own secret, one he's never been able to share with anyone close to him. Being the perfect son costs him dearly, and now it may take from him the one man he longs for. Pete Thayer--Playing it straight, Pete takes out his frustrations on transmissions and engines during the day, then spends his nights trying to quench his needs through anonymous sex. But once the thrill of the forbidden begins to fade, what will he be left with? John and Russell--The golden couple in town has the ideal relationship everyone wants. But behind the scenes, their storybook marriage is on the verge of facing some explosive trials that will shake both men completely. Father Thomas Dunn--More and more the gentle priest is feeling a need to express the secret desires that conflict with his devotion to the church, sending his faith into a tailspin and making him question what he really wants from life. Simon Bird--He's a fixture in town, an old queen everyone finds amusing and entertaining. Still mourning the loss of his longtime lover, Simon yearns to find love and a place in a culture that worships youth and beauty. As Mike hands these men their drinks, he marvels at their determination, strength and foolishness. But most of all, he begins to question his own dissatisfaction, pondering what's missing from his own life, and what risks he may have to take to find fulfillment. Looking For It is an extraordinarily human tale of community, friendship, and the search for happiness. With unflinching honesty, keen insight, and his trademark humor, Michael Thomas Ford weaves together the unforgettable stories of these seven men, chronicling their dreams, hurts, heartbreaks, joys, and hopes, while taking readers on an emotional journey to find what it is we're all looking for.

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).

Thanks to her black mother and her Irish father, Ruth "Penny" Borum is the color of a new penny. Big-boned and notoriously sassy, Ruth is nonetheless the organist and a member in good standing of Antioch, Virginia's most prominent black church--or at least she was until she dragged the popular Reverend Jonas Borum into an ugly divorce. Having lost everything in the divorce, Ruth scrapes by on what she can make as a hairdresser at Diana's, a tiny two-seat salon. Alone at night, in her basement apartment, she indulges in ice cream and argues with the Almighty. Did He have to take everything away? And when is He going to give something back? The Good Lord must have a sense of humor. That's the only conclusion Ruth can reach when He makes her fall head over heels in love. . .with a white man. Her friends are appalled, and Antioch, her spiritual home since birth, is ready to throw her out on her ear. Still, with the help of jump rope rhymes, a homeless man who hears God's voice in a mason jar, and two children who want a Mama as much as she wants them, Ruth's determined to prove anything is possible--even love between two people who couldn't be more mismatched. . .

"Questioning Consciousness" brings together neuroscientific, psychological and phenomenological research, combining in a readable format recent developments in image research and neurology. It reassesses the mind-body relation and research on 'mental models', abstract concept formation, and acquisition of logical and apparently 'imageless' inference skills. It is argued that to be conscious of an object is essentially to imagine in a habituated way what would happen if we were to perform certain actions in relation to the object; and that mental images fit together to build up abstract concepts. This analysis shows why conscious information processing is so structurally different from yet interrelated with non-conscious processing, and how mind and body interrelate as a process to its substratum in the way that a sound wave relates to the medium through which it passes.

New York Times bestselling author Jennifer Crusie teams up with USA Today bestselling author Bob Mayer to write a sizzling, high-octane romantic adventure about a straight-talking woman and a straight-shooting man... Lucy Armstrong is a director of television commercials who's just been recruited to finish a four-day action movie shoot. But she arrives on the set to discover that the directing staff has quit, the make-up artist is suicidal, the stars are egomaniacs, the stunt director is her ex-husband, and the lead actor has just acquired as an advisor a Green Beret who has the aggravating habit of always being right. Green Beret Captain JT Wilder had thought that hiring on as a military consultant for a movie star was a good deal: easy money and easier starlets. Instead he has to babysit a bumbling comedian, dodge low-flying helicopters, and resist his attraction to a director who bears a distracting resemblance to Wonder Woman. Then the CIA calls and he realizes that somebody is taking "shooting a movie" much too literally. Full of suspense and humor, non-stop action and fast-paced dialogue, Don't Look Down is the perfect blend of male and female, adventure and romance, Mayer and Crusie.

It will challenge you to be neater and more organized, help you to consider where you are in your life, and inspire you with some little wisdom and encouragement. Accept the goal; "Try To Be Excellent." Try To Be Excellent for yourself and those that you love, those you may next meet, or even those you once loved... and discover the rewards. It has nothing to do with being arrogant or being better than anyone else. Rather, it is more about surveying your own life and then making a more deliberate and conscious effort to mold your life with attitude and action, your world, into a better place. Instead of just going from day to day, consider looking at yourself, your life, and how you might make it more excellent, and keep it that way. Make the sacrifice, do what it takes, to make your life, your world and our world, something excellent... Try To Be Excellent. One thing builds upon the next. You start in one place and move and grow to somewhere else. Much is beyond our control. However, where we have the option to decide, decide carefully. Every step you take brings you in some direction, either closer to your goals and dreams, or further from them. "Try To Be Excellent," in your attitude, in the things that you choose to surround you, in the wisdom you choose to follow, who you trust and believe, and in what your life becomes. Try to be strong, wise, and loving. "Wisdom is the root of all happiness, and love dwells there." -Hawk. Hawk has worked as a Private Investigator for most of his life. This gave him a special insight and the ability to see the "three sides to every coin.," of many different kinds of relationships. It made him more philosophical about life and amazingly, not bitter or cynical. He witnessed the best and the worst that people had to offer each other. When the love of his life left him, he took a good look at his own life and decided that he could improve. Not just change, but to "Try To Be Excellent." With who he was, with where he was, with the things and the people in his life... He adopted an Excellentway to live by trying to be excellent. He accepted the challenge of a more simple, organized life, and with attitude, action, and sacrifice, became stronger, wiser, and happier. Hawk is single and lives in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, but travels extensively. He is committed to trying to be excellent, both in his personal and business life.
