iPicturebooks. Paperback. New. Paperback. 306 pages. Dimensions: 9.1in. x 6.0in. x 0.9in.Praise for the George R. R. Martins Wild Cards series: Martin has assembled an impressive array of writers. . . . Progressing through the decades, Wild Cards keeps its momentum to the end . . . Im looking forward to the next episodes in this saga of mutant Americana. -Locus Well written and suspenseful and a good read. . . . The authors had a lot of fun rewriting recent American history. -Aboriginal Science Fiction Commendable writing . . . a zany premise . . . narrated with rueful humor and intelligence. -Publishers Weekly On September 15, 1946, a biological weapon created by an alien race was accidentally detonated above the streets of New York City, killing countless numbers of men, women, and children. But those who survived the initial explosion soon began to wish they had died also, once they discovered they had been forever mutated by the virus unleashed in the blast. Set in an alternate, shared-world universe, Deuces Down is the one place youll find such never-before-told tales as John J. Millers exciting 1969 World Series between the Baltimore Orioles and the Brooklyn Dodgers; Michael Cassutts first moon landing, when the whole world wasnt watching; Walton Simons Great New York City Blackout of 1977; and Melinda M. Snodgrasss account of Grace Kellys mysterious disappearance during the filming of The French Lieutenants Woman. Its a strange and terrifying world, where anything can happen. A world of Wild Cards. Editor GEORGE R. R. MARTIN was born September 20, 1948 in Bayonne, New Jersey. He began writing very young, selling monster stories to other neighborhood children for pennies, dramatic readings included. Later he became a comic book fan and collector in high school, and began to write fiction for comic fanzines (amateur fan magazines). Martins first professional sale was made in 1970 at age 21: The Hero, sold to Galaxy, published in February, 1971 issue. Other sales followed. Four-time winner of the Hugo Award, two-time winner of the Nebula Award, and six-time Locus Award winner, Martin is the author and editor of over two dozen novels and anthologies, and the writer of numerous short stories. His New York Times bestselling novel A Storm of Swords-the third volume in his epic fantasy series A Song of Ice and Fire -was published in 2000. Martin lives in Santa Fe, New Mexico.

Dead men tell no tales, and the soldiers who rode and died with George Armstrong Custer at the Battle of the Little Bighorn have been silent statistics for more than a hundred years. By blending historical sources, archaeological evidence, and painstaking analysis of the skeletal remains, Douglas D. Scott, P. Willey, and Melissa A. Connor reconstruct biographies of many of the individual soldiers, identifying age, height, possible race, state of health, and the specific way each died. They also link reactions to the battle over the years to shifts in American views regarding the appropriate treatment of the dead. Douglas D. Scott is Chief of the Rocky Mountain Research Division, Midwest Archeological Center, National Park Service. He holds B.A., M.A., and Ph.D. degrees from the University of Colorado and is widely known as an author, lecturer, and expert on military archaeology. Other books by Douglas D. Scott include Archaeological Insights Into the Custer Battle. "Even a few of the faces - from young privates to grizzled sergeants - grace these pages through reconstructions. . . . [These are] pipe-smoking and tobacco-chewing men with rotten teeth, a lifetime of broken bones and poor nutrition, and a host of painful back problems from years on horseback. The West loses its romance in a hurry." - Robert Locke, Discovering Archaeology, University of Oklahoma Press, Norman: 2002, Washington Square Press. Paperback. New. Paperback. 320 pages. Dimensions: 8.4in. x 5.5in. x 0.9in.In a time when racing boats are mass-produced from synthetic materials, a dying breed of craftsman continues to build wooden sailboats of astonishing beauty. Boatbuilding is an ancient art, and Joel White was a master. Son of the legendary writer E. B. White, he was raised around boats and his designs were as sublime and graceful as his fathers prose. At a boatyard in Maine, White and his closely knit team of builders brought scores of his creations from blueprints into the ocean. In June 1996, six months after being diagnosed with cancer, Joel White began designing the W-76, an exquisite racing yacht. It was his final masterpiece. Douglas Whynott spent a year at Brooklin Boat Yard, observing as this design took shape, first in sketches and then during the painstaking building of the wooden craft. The result is the poignant tale of both a genius at work and the people devoted to his art. Evoking E. B. Whites New England and its salty residents, A Unit of Water, a Unit of Time is a classic portrait of dignity, charm, and humble magnificence-and of a maritime community that keeps a vanishing world alive.
