Narcotic euphoria meets the demands of everyday life in Richard Wirick's brilliant new collection of interlocking stories. Not just another drug book, Wirick's collection is a gut punch to the notion that the drug war stems from society's fringes. Instead, he shines a light on the ways in which so-called democratic governments use drugs to keep selected segments of society marginalised. The result is a masterful collection - a vivid, terrifying and startling fictional exploration of the many ways people experiment with what Coleridge once called 'the milk of paradise'.
When Patti Smith was plagued with writer’s block — “scattered and stymied, surrounded by unfinished songs and abandoned poems” — playwright Sam Shepard advised her, “When you hit a wall, just kick it in.” In these pages, Abercrombie shows readers how to do just that. Like a workout with a top trainer, her writing exercises warm up, stretch, and build creative muscle. Quotes from famous writers inspire each day’s exercise. Though Abercrombie says readers need only commit five minutes to each exercise, she writes, “I’ve seen novels, memoirs, and many essays get started” in those five minutes, “and a lot ended up being published.” Her playful, powerful method is ideal — maybe even essential — fuel for writers trying to get off the starting block, persevere through challenges, and cross their personal creativity finish lines.
Praise for Story Salon "Gemstones of narrative. Something new, funny, astonishing." -Los Angeles Daily News "Tales tall, tragic, and tantalizing." -Sunset Magazine "Stories from all walks and talks of life. Tales of yore and ones that make you scream for more-those that will delight with insight while moving an audience from laughter to tears." -Studio City Sun Story Salon is Los Angeles's longest running storytelling venue. What began as an alternative to stand-up clubs and self-conscious performance spaces has been challenging performers and audiences for more than a decade. Created in a North Hollywood coffee house Story Salon now reaches the globe through Podcasting, publishing, and recordings. The rules of the Story Salon haven't changed since it started: Five to seven minutes of original material performed by the author. The result is a unique blend of observation, memoir and comment that makes the Salon one of the most eclectic entertainment experiences available. More than a dozen solo theater works have been developed at Story Salon, as well as a CD of stories, and several books. "Live storytelling is a unique art form," says Story Salon founder, writer/actor/comedian Beverly Mickins. "Words spoken aloud paint pictures capable of evoking laughter and tears, the whole range of emotion. People have been telling each other stories since the first campfires, talking about the whole mix of things, important and trivial, that go into making life. Storytelling is one of the ways we figure out how to be human." Collected here for the first time in Big Book of Stories are more than forty original pieces first performed by their authors at Story Salon. It's an omnibus of memories, rants, affirmations, and shaggy-dog stories that once opened is impossible to shut. Learn more at www.storysalon.com
You will find in this book twenty-two stories. Each story is numbered. The easiest way to enjoy them is to begin with number one and proceed through the others in numerical sequence. Although some were written years ago, all have a contemporary feeling. Accurate details are designed to help the reader profit from many hours of painstaking research. If you are familiar with Chicago or Ireland, for example, the details tell you the scenes located there have been presented correctly. The same is true throughout this collection. Some topics are treated briefly, others at considerable length. If there is a common characteristic, it is the attempt at humor that flows throughout the book and hopefully adds to your enjoyment.
“A joyful celebration of fan love. Unofficial episode guides don’t come much more engaging than this.” —Benjamin Cook, co-author of Doctor Who: The Writer’s Tale Doctor Who was already the world’s longest-running science fiction series when it returned in 2005 to huge success. Enormously popular, the BBC show encompasses multiple other genres, from horror to comedy to action and historical adventure, and is loved for its uniquely British wit and clever scripting. Its hero, its monsters, and even its theme song have become pop culture icons. In this volume covering six seasons of the new series, two Doctor Who experts provide insights into everything from the history of the show, including Daleks, Cybermen, and the eight Classic Series Doctors, to a detailed episode guide. As Neil Gaiman complained to the authors, “I have just lost four hours to your blasted book. And I only meant to glance at it.” Allons-y!
School yards and classrooms are filled with amazing human beings, and, therefore, fantastic stories. Whenever educators gather some of those stories get told. Invariably, someone will offer the advice, "You've got to write that down." Following that advice has resulted in this first volume of Keep Kicking. It is a collection of stories from the humorous, "Now do I have your attention?" to the sublime, "You were right. I was good for something, here's your money back for that soda at middle school." Take a look inside and see how these stories (and the 49 others from 32 different tellers) unfold to reveal a very special side of being a school leader.
