Brian’s got both hands full fending off these men when a wild card rides into town—a no-account con man and killer named Mortimer Dauro, who has ideas of his own for the dead man’s ranch… More Than Six Million Ralph Compton Books In Print!

A National Book Award-winning satire about the unchecked power of American capitalism, written more than three decades before the 2008 financial crisis. At the center of J R is J R Vansant, a very average sixth grader from Long Island with torn sneakers, a runny nose, and a juvenile fascination with junk-mail get-rich-quick offers. Responding to one, he sees a small return; soon, he is a running a massive Ponzi scheme out of a phone booth in the school hallway. Everyone from the school staff to the municipal government to the squabbling heirs of a player-piano company to the titans of Wall Street and the politicians in Washington will be caught up in endlessly ballooning bubble of the J R Company. First published in 1975, J R is an appallingly funny and all-too-prophetic depiction of America's romance with finance. It is also a book about suburban development and urban decay, divorce proceedings and disputed wills, the crumbling facade of Western civilization and the impossible demands of love and art, with characters ranging from the earnest young composer Edward Bast, to the berserk publicist Davidoff. Told almost entirely through dialogue, William Gaddis's novel is both a literary tour de force and an unsurpassed reckoning with the way we live now.

There were many stories told about the Great Flood of April 5th, 1852, but few were as heartwarming and heartbreaking as the one about two brave men, Albert Sawyer and Tom Lewis.

The second novel from the critically acclaimed writer of Pike, which was nominated for France’s prestigious Grand Prix de Littérature Policière crime fiction award and “easily rivals Larry Brown’s most renowned novels” (Spinetingler Magazine). In the tradition of Cormac McCarthy and Larry Brown comes a haunting story about men, their fathers, their sons, and the legacy of violence. For Patterson Wells, disaster is the norm. Working alongside dangerous, desperate, itinerant men as a tree clearer in disaster zones, he's still dealing with the loss of his young son. Writing letters to the boy offers some solace. The bottle gives more. Upon a return trip to Colorado, Patterson stops to go fishing with an old acquaintance, only to find him in a meth-induced delirium and keeping a woman tied up in the bathtub. In the ensuing chain of events, which will test not only his future but his past, Patterson tries to do the right thing. Still, in the lives of those he knows, violence and justice have made of each other strange, intoxicating bedfellows. Hailed as “the next great American writer” (Frank Bill, author of Crimes in Southern Indiana), Benjamin Whitmer has crafted a literary triumph that is by turns harrowing, darkly comic, and wise.

L.A. Unified is the fictional diary of a first-year English teacher at Pico-Union High School, one of Americas worst performing schools in one of Los Angeless most dangerous neighborhoods, Pico-Union. The students are apathetic, hostile and lazy; the teachers are burned out and cynical; the administrators are biding time until their next promotion, and the schools graduation rate and Academic Performance Index are abysmal. To complicate matters, the area is also the birthplace and current home to the two largest transnational gangs in the world, 18th Street and La Mara Salvatrucha (MS 13) as well as Rockwood Street 13. While all three gangs are well represented at Pico-Union High School, they are far from alone. Weapons, drugs, failing grades, brawls, and graffiti are the norm; homework, reading, and safety are fantasy. Enter David OBrien, a recent college grad who intends to overcome a multitude of obstacles and change the schools failing ways. L.A. Unified is his story, partly inspirational, partly tragic, and completely real. This is Up the Down Staircase in modern times. Welcome to Pico-Union High School: Survival precedes learning.

Fredericka Mercedes Hildebrand Ware (Frede to her friends) is a member beyond reproach...until her life begins to unravel. When her husband betrays her, steals her money, and runs off to places unknown, it's something Frede would rather keep under wraps. The last thing she needs is to become fodder for the JLWC gossip mill.

In this western from Charles G. West, blood beats all—except justice… Outlaw Roy Blanton’s raised his four boys in the family business since they were half-pints—and they've gotten away with murder. That is, until U.S. Deputy Marshal Casey Dixon had hot-headed Billy, the youngest, hanged for shooting a policeman. Now the Blantons have vengeance on their minds. Old Buck Avery, Dixon’s partner, had been thinking of turning in his badge. And taking down the Blanton name sounds like a fine way to leave the law on a high note. But it's going to get bloody--because the house of Blanton isn't going to fall without a fight... “The West as it really was—savage, heroic and unforgettable.”—Ralph Compton

It is widely asserted, outside Japan, that the failure of foreign banks to penetrate Japanese financial markets is the direct result of stringent Japanese protectionist policies. However, although there may be some truth in this, it is a one-dimensional argument. Opening Japan's Financial Markets takes a broader view. It accepts that the Japanese bureaucracy have skillfully limited the scope of foreign banks. However, in examining the history of foreign banking activity in Japan, it becomes clear that ineptitude on the part of foreign banks and governments has also been a major factor.

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).
