More Letters from a Nut – Humorous essays – $1.99 0 comments

Ted L Nancy continues his gently surreal correspondence with the great and the good. His hilarious and bizarre letters – as before with unusual queries, complaints and requests – not only manage to fool many recipients into starchy and strait-laced answers but in some cases elicit equally hilarious, tongue-in-cheek replies.
More Letters from a Nut is totally enthralling and painfully funny: ‘Dear Mayor’s Office: I want to give back to the community. I want to stage the play “Romeo and Juliet” using otter. There will be no racy scenes but some holding. Otters will play Romeo, Juliet, and the others. We will bring the otters out at the intermission to pet. These otters are something to see. They have performed this play many times with only one biting incident.’

When an extra-terrestrial visitor arrives on Earth, his first impressions of the human species are less than positive.

But as time goes on, he starts to realize there may be more to this strange species than he had thought. Disguised as Martin, he drinks wine, reads poetry, develops an ear for rock music, and a taste for peanut butter. Slowly, unexpectedly, he forges bonds with Martin’s family.

90% of the Game Is Half Mental: And Other Tales from the Edge of Baseball Fandom – Just 99 cents 0 comments

Yogi Berra once said: “If you come to a fork in the road, take it.” But for lifelong baseball aficionado Emma Span, it hasn’t always been that simple.
Now, in this winning collection of essays, Span chronicles her love of the sport, from childhood hobby to full-blown obsession, from big break (becoming The Village Voice’s first staff sports reporter in years) to heartbreak (getting a pink slip within a year). She recounts elbowing her way to get a quote from Yankees captain Derek Jeter and waiting for Mets pitcher Pedro Martinez to put some pants on for an interview.
Baseball helped Span forge a lasting bond with her father, connect with total strangers, and endure even the toughest times. With a fresh voice, a devastating wit, and an alarmingly encyclopedic knowledge of the game, Span offers a new perspective on America’s favorite pasttime—as a journalist, a baseball nerd, a daughter, and a fervent stay-until-the-last-out fan.

Their Finest – A darkly comic British novel – $1.99 0 comments

It is 1940. France has fallen, and only a narrow strip of sea lies between Great Britain and invasion. The war could go either way and everyone must do their bit. Young copy writer Catrin Cole is drafted into the Ministry of Information to help “write women” into propaganda films—something that the men aren’t very good at.
She is quickly seconded to the Ministry’s latest endeavor: a heart-warming tale of bravery and rescue at Dunkirk. It’s all completely fabricated, of course, but what does that matter when the nation’s morale is at stake? Since call-up has stripped the industry of its brightest and best, it is the callow, the jaded and the utterly unsuitable who must make up the numbers.
Now in a serious world, in a nation under siege, they must all swallow their mutual distaste, ill-will, and mistrust to unite for the common good, for King and Country, and—in one case—for better or worse….

My Word is My Bond: A Memoir by Sir Roger Moore – Just 99 cents 0 comments

One of the most recognizable big-screen stars of the past half-century, Sir Roger Moore played the role of James Bond longer than any other actor.

Still, James Bond was only one in a lifetime of roles stretching back to Hollywood’s studio era, and encompassing stardom in theater and television on both sides of the Atlantic.
As much as it is Moore’s own exceptional story, My Word is My Bond is a treasure trove of Hollywood history. Buy this memoir today for only 99 cents.
