"Three women. One night. Four Doms to rope them up, ride them hard, and brand their hearts. It's Western Night at Dark Haven." A GOOD sub WOULD by Sierra Cartwright Shelby, a wanna-be sub, hasn't found a Dom strong enough to push past her need to be in control. Her experiences as a sub have been yawn-inducing. She's fantasized plenty, though, about Trevor Lawton, one of Dark Haven's legendary, mouthwateringly firm Doms. As the stakes get higher at the charity poker match, Dom Trevor Lawton is fascinated by the woman kneeling across the table from him. Problem is, she's not a good sub. Oh, she tries, and she's lovely. But she's not very good at following orders. The woman needs a firm, unyielding hand...his. HUNTING HOLLY by Belinda McBride When Holly left the Truckee pack, she left her family, her safety, and the two men she loved. Now she's in San Francisco training as a Domme at Dark Haven. She thinks she's found herself, but tonight, Tex and Hunter have found her. And they are not happy with their little wolf. She's been keeping secrets from them. Tonight, someone's gonna beg. "Additional Publisher's Warning: This book contains explicit sexual content, graphic language, and situations that some readers may find objectionable: anal play/intercourse, caning, sensory deprivation." WELCOME TO THE DARK SIDE by Cherise Sinclair Real Doms terrify her, so Summer plays with lightweights only. And only in the safety of her club, Dark Haven. But on Western Night, the tough cop who wins her in a sub-roping game is as powerful as they come. Virgil's first taste of BDSM was disturbingly enticing. Hoping to burn out his interest, he visits an infamous San Francisco club, where he wins himself the prettiest little sub he's ever seen. He's in a quandary. A man shouldn't render a woman helpless, let alone spank her ass. But the nervous little submissive clearly loves being in his ropes. Her need to be controlled is as powerful as his need to control. So he indulges himself, and her. That one night could be the beginning, but instead it's the end. She won't play outside the club and he lives too far to come play. He'll just have to find a way to forget her...or get her in his ropes to stay. "Publisher's Note: All of the stories within this anthology contain explicit sexual content, graphic language, and situations that some readers may find objectionable: strong BDSM theme and elements (including/not limited to: bondage and spanking)."

Fastening the Voice to the Page
Author: Liam Rector,Tree Swenson
Publisher: University of Michigan Press
Category: Literary Criticism
Frank Bidart has always defied expectation and convention without ever sounding conscious of such an effort or veering into self-parody. Bidart’s poetry is often all at once deeply generous of spirit, terrifyingly beautiful, and verging on the ecstatic in its glimpse of great turbulence just beneath the surface. Rhythmically Bidart possesses an astute sense of the music of speech, both on the page and in the ear—proving again Frost’s assertion that “a dramatic necessity goes deep into the nature of the sentence.” In the process Bidart forges a unique and uniquely American voice that combines, writes Seamus Heaney in one of this book’s essays, “a Dantesque severity with an immediacy of voice and a contemporaneity of idiom that [is] as alive to the resources of the tape-deck as it [is] to the tradition of terza rima.” This collection of essays from thirty-six poets and writers puts Bidart in perspective for his numerous longtime readers and is sure to draw new adherents to one of our greatest living poets.

The American West is a complex region that has inspired generations of writers and artists. Often portrayed as a quintessential landscape that symbolizes promise and progress for a developing nation, the American West is also a diverse space that has experienced conflicting and competing hopes and expectations. While it is frequently imagined as a place enabling dreams of new beginnings for settler communities, it is likewise home to long-standing indigenous populations as well as many other ethnic and racial groups who have often produced different visions of the land. This History encompasses the intricacy of Western American literature by exploring myriad genres and cultural movements, from ecocriticism, settler colonial studies and transnational theory, to race, ethnic, gender and sexuality studies. Written by a host of leading historians and literary critics, this book offers readers insight into the West as a site that sustains canonical and emerging authors alike, and as a region that exceeds national boundaries in addressing long-standing global concerns and developments.

Night Mail to Western Approaches
Author: Pat Jackson

Category: Performing Arts
This fascinating memoir is a unique contribution to the history of film and cinema. At its center is the story of the making of the British film classic Western Approaches, the first story documentary in Technicolor, totally enacted by amateurs. Nominated for an Oscar, it has influenced and inspired film-making to this day. Acclaimed a masterpiece when it was released in December 1944, fifty years later Philip French wrote in The Observer: "It remains a milestone in our cinema and an exciting, vibrant cinematic experience."

A Novel of Shanghai
Author: Anyi Wang
Publisher: Columbia University Press
Category: Literary Criticism
Set in post-World War II Shanghai, The Song of Everlasting Sorrow follows the adventures of Wang Qiyao, a girl born of the longtong, the crowded, labyrinthine alleys of Shanghai's working-class neighborhoods. Infatuated with the glitz and glamour of 1940s Hollywood, Wang Qiyao seeks fame in the Miss Shanghai beauty pageant, and this fleeting moment of stardom becomes the pinnacle of her life. During the next four decades, Wang Qiyao indulges in the decadent pleasures of pre-liberation Shanghai, secretly playing mahjong during the antirightist Movement and exchanging lovers on the eve of the Cultural Revolution. Surviving the vicissitudes of modern Chinese history, Wang Qiyao emerges in the 1980s as a purveyor of "old Shanghai" a living incarnation of a new, commodified nostalgia that prizes splendor and sophistication only to become embroiled in a tragedy that echoes the pulpy Hollywood noirs of her youth. From the violent persecution of communism to the liberalism and openness of the age of reform, this sorrowful tale of old China versus new, of perseverance in the face of adversity, is a timeless rendering of our never-ending quest for transformation and beauty.

Pioneers of American Medicine
Author: James Thomas Flexner
Publisher: Fordham Univ Press
Category: Biography & Autobiography
The man in the street would not, perhaps, recognize all the names of the brilliant scientists whose careers and personalities animate this book, but doctors know them. Morgan, who founded the first medical school in America and, fighting beside Washington, was ruined by the petty politics of the Revolution; McDowell, who, although on the fringe of the wilderness, dared the operation that prepared the way for all abdominal surgery; Rush, the equivocal personality who, for better or worse, dominated American medicine for more than fifty years; Beaumont, who, saving a life, won a living laboratory; Drake, who brought modern medicine to the new West; Long and Morton, who banished pain from surgery and earned it for themselves - these men are honored in their profession today. Mr. Flexner approaches his subject with authority, sympathy, and humor. The bitter antagonisms, personal jealousies, tragic misconceptions which inevitably arose are given their place in the story, but always the reader is conscious that these men were making lasting contributions to their profession and to their country. The book is one that will have immediate appeal for those who enjoy being behind the scenes of the scientific world, and for those who like to wander through the by ways of history.
