When poet Ken Squires goes to express himself in with anything that comes to mind you will encounter a man who is brilliant, intimidating as well as a man who knows what he likes, dislikes and what he wants. You may stand on the same side as Ken when it comes to certain subjects or you may push back against him during others. It will only take a bit before he plunges in deep and fill your mind with things that you can relate to. While he maybe enigmatic in his writing, it goes along with being very shy and unsure of himself as he touches upon subjects that may tough you in a very very good way or ways that will bend you over. As you read Ken’s materials you will uncover secrets and explore a side that he has never shared with anyone.

"I am not a busy person or a lover of insanely interesting things, but I do love great bull$hit." - Dev Drake, The Communist Beer Manifesto Preview this book to imbibe the beer facts, brew myths, drinking life trends, and history, psychoanalyzed in such an entertaining way, that teetotalers are reaching for the bottle! Written by a non-alcoholic non Bible belter whose beer opinions no one values whatsoever. The only book on beer you'll ever need to read! Craft drinks are here to stay. Distilling locally made craft products with higher quality ingredients, which arguably started in the United Kingdom in the 1970's and spread to the USA in the 1980's, is now a worldwide phenomenon. If you are consistently walking into a bar or bottle shop and select your beer based on the page of the Bible you're currently reading or what your less-informed-than-you-think friends advise you, maybe it's a good idea to become a bit more informed. The dividends will pay off in the long run. How much could it hurt to have some brew knowledge about the art or science (or joke) of modern beer tasting? Or how that semi-pricey Belgian beer you're drinking may really be a local beer in a brew under license arrangement, and if there is a difference between the imported product and the licensed one? What about the right craft drinks to serve at a party? Or, with men, is drinking beer truly a health tip for champions? Beer & brew topics you'll want to read and learn about In sixty-two wildly entertaining chapters, none so long that your shortened Information Age attention span has you drifting off, you'll learn a helluva lot of insanely interesting beer bull$hit. There's actually nothing in this beer book which would qualify as bullsheißa, as the Belgian and German brewmasters prefer to call it. Spread throughout the book are also amazing chapters on what makes each individual craft beer style unique in the distilling process: India pale ales, blonde beers, amber ales, lambics, fruit beers, barleywines. You'll learn the differences between a lager and ale in such an engaging way that you don't feel like falling asleep for a change. There are individual chapters on the beer history and infrastructure of various nations and regions to justify why their beers are traditionally excellent, good, or horrible. Some of this information you could find on the internet right now. However, much of what you'll read on craft drinks elsewhere qualifies as bullsheißa. When drinking with a lot of men, you'll always hear the conventional story that India pale ales get their name because this was the type of beer, heavily preserved by necessity, that the British exported to their troops in India. This is word-of-mouth bullsheißa spouted so often that people thinks it's true. Other information presented you won't find anywhere else. We compiled the statistics ourselves and drew the brilliant conclusions you can boast as your own to the onlookers you'll soon amaze. Be considered an expert from reading just this one book. Unless you're a sworn tee-totaler, your drinking life today consists of better beers now than it ever has. Wouldn't it be an asset to learn enough in one book so as to be considered, by most, a beer expert and accomplishing the task while you're entertained endlessly on page after page? There may be more knowledge packed into a thousand page beer bible, but you and I know that you're not going to read one of those, and bibles/encyclopedias aren't renowned for their humor and entertainment value. We have too much information available to us today. We need it curated in an easy-to-understand and interesting way. Therein lies the raison d'etre of The Busy Person's Collection Of Insanely Interesting Beer Bull$hit. You're busy We know that. We listened. Here's the answer: a copy of this wondrous read, put on your phone, to dazzle your peers the next time you're on a beer crawl at a fancy Belgian or craft bar. Cheers.

Shortlisted for the Green Carnation Prize 2014 Laurie Penny, one of our most prominent young voices of feminism and dissent, presents a trenchant report on our society today--and our society tomorrow, as she is willing to fight to see it. Smart, clear-eyed, and irreverent, Unspeakable Things is a fresh look at gender and power in the twenty-first century, which asks difficult questions about dissent and desire, money and masculinity, sexual violence, menial work, mental health, queer politics, and the Internet. Celebrated journalist and activist Laurie Penny draws on a broad history of feminist thought and her own experience in radical subcultures in America and Britain to take on cultural phenomena from the Occupy movement to online dating, give her unique spin on economic justice and freedom of speech, and provide candid personal insight to rally the defensive against eating disorders, sexual assault, and internet trolls. Unspeakable Things is a book that is eye-opening not only in the critique it provides, but also in the revolutionary alternatives it imagines.

Brand new stories by: George Pelecanos, James Grady, Kenji Jasper, Jim Beane, Jabari Asim, Ruben Castaneda, James Patton, Norman Kelley, Jennifer Howard, Richard Currey, Lester Irby, and others. Mystery sensation Pelecanos pens the lead story and edits this groundbreaking collection of stories detailing the seedy underside of the nation's capital. This is not an anthology of ill-conceived and inauthentic political thrillers. Instead, in D.C. Noir, pimps, whores, gangsters, and con-men run rampant in zones of this city that most never hear about.
Journalist Mark Manning has been successfully running his family's newspaper, The Dumont Daily Register, for several years now, and he sits on the board of two local companies, Quatro Press and Ashton Mills. So when the respective CEOs of these companies discuss a merger, it is only natural that Manning be interested in the proceedings. What's more, Manning's lover Neil, an architect, is designing a new house for Ashton's CEO, Gillian Reece. Reece is a business friend of Manning but not a friend to many else; she is generally considered overly aggressive and fastidious. When Manning assigns Glee Savage, the newspaper's society reporter, to cover Reece's new home, the subsequent meeting between the two does not end well: Savage huffs off in a fury but not before ferociously bitch slapping Reece in front of everyone. With Reece's cheek still smarting, more bad news comes as the accountant performing due diligence for the merger reports some very questionable items regarding Ashton's books. It seems as though things couldn't go much worse for the unpleasant Reece. That is, until she is murdered. The discovery of her body is greeted with great surprise, but perhaps not much regret on the part of most who knew her. Still, with Manning's friend and employee Glee Savage as the obvious and primary suspect, he cannot resist wading in to this most unsound of business dealings.
