In the first book devoted exclusively to publisher Henry Luce and China, Patricia Neils provides a major reassessment of the Time Inc. mogul's views and his influence on American public opinion and foreign policy. Previous biographers and historians have depicted Luce as a fanatical anticommunist who used his pre-television media empire-the pages of Time, Life, and Fortune, radio broadcasts on March of Time, and Time Newsreels shown in theatres throughout the United States-to sway American opinion against Mao Tse Tung and Chinese communists in favor of the fascist regime of Chiang Kaishek. 1895-1925: Origins of China Images in the Life of Henry R. Luce; 1926-1936 Heroes and Bandits; 1937-1941: The Red Star and the Good Earth; 1942-1943: Our Honored Ally; 1944: The Stilwell Crisis; 1945-1946: The Vigil of a Nation; 1947-1948: Too Little, Too Late; 'Ghosts on the Roof' and Other Political Fairy Tales; 1950s: Leaning to One Side; Since 1965: The Trans-Pacific Dialogue; Bibliography; Index.

Some men can never outrun their ghosts. Enchei thought he'd found a home at last - a life of quiet obscurity far removed from the horror of his military days. After a decade in the Imperial City his mistakes have been few, but one has now returned to haunt him. As Narin's pregnant lover comes to term, life has never been so perilous. There couldn't be a worse time for a nightmare to be unleashed on the Imperial City, but luck's rarely been on Narin's side. Once, Enchei swore he'd take his own life rather than let his past catch up with him, but now it's not just his own in the balance. Demons, rogue mages and vengeful noblemen haunt the city - and a man's ghosts are always watching and waiting...

Whittaker Chambers is one of the most controversial figures in modern American history a former Communist spy who left the party, testified against Alger Hiss before the House Un-American Activities Committee, and wrote a classic autobiography, Witness. Dismissed by some as a crank, reviled by others as a traitor, Chambers still looms as a Dostoevskian figure over three decades after his death in 1961. A man of profound pessimism, rare vision, and remarkable literary talents, his continuing importance was attested to when Ronald Reagan posthumously awarded him the Medal of Freedom in 1984. Ghosts on the Roof, originally published in 1989, brings together more than fifty short stories, essays, articles, and reviews that originally appeared in Time, Life, National Review, Commonweal, The American Mercury, and the New Masses. Included are essays on Karl Marx, Reinhold Niebuhr, James Joyce, Franz Kafka, George Santayana, Dame Rebecca West, Ayn Rand, and Greta Garbo. These show Chambers at his best, as a peerless historian of ideas.

A Ghost in the Coal Mine is a mixture of past and present good against evil. It pushes the limit on the supernatural and what we feel could exist, giving us a look inside the coal mines and the dangers that even today the men working the mines face with cave-ins and explosions. The mines are dark, dangerous places to work or even to walk into. When you add the unthinkable, unnatural evils of demons and ghosts and our everyday fight with good and evil, it sends chills down your spine. Would you put your life on the line to go into the darkness of the underground to bring men dead or alive back to their families? Could you fight the unthinkable to do what is right?

When the dead need to talk, Alex Craft is always ready to listen… As a Grave Witch, Alex solves murders by raising the dead—an ability that comes at a cost, and after her last few cases, that cost is compounding. But her magic isn’t the only thing causing havoc in her life. While she’s always been on friendly terms with Death himself, things have recently become a whole lot more close and personal. Then there’s her sometime partner, agent Falin Andrews, who is under the glamour of the Winter Queen. To top everything off, her best friend has been forever changed by her time spent captive in Faerie. But the personal takes a backseat to the professional when a string of suicides occur in Nekros City and Alex is hired to investigate. The shades have no memory of the days leading up to their brutal endings, so despite the very public apparent suicides, this is murder. But what kind of magic can overcome the human will to survive? And why do the shades lack the memory of their deaths? Searching for the answer might mean Alex won’t have a life to remember at all…

The first human-alien contact. The last word in galactic warfare. The story you must read–before Transformers rockets to the big screen! A mammoth robotic being, clearly of alien origin, has been found beneath the Arctic ice. Its advanced engineering dwarfs known human technology, and unlocking its secrets will catapult American science eons into the future. In search of the mysterious artifact’s origin, a covert government agency sends the manned craft Ghost 1 on a perilous journey of discovery. When a mishap maroons Ghost 1 in the far reaches of unknown space, the ship’s distress beacon reaches the very alien race Ghost 1’s crew has been seeking: the Autobots. The gigantic mechanized beings are also on a quest: to find the Allspark, a device crucial to the salvation of their home world, Cybertron. But they’re not alone. The Decepticons, the Autobots’ brutal enemies, have their own sinister purposes in seeking the Allspark. As these adversaries are drawn together once more, the stage is set for a death-dealing new battle in which each is driven by a single-minded aim: total annihilation of the enemy.
