FRACTALS: FRACTAL ART by JACK CLEVELAND | AVAILABLE NOW 978-1-941237-58-8
ARTS & PHOTOGRAPHY: Digital / Science & Math / Pure Mathematics / Fractals
Fractals can be seen to represent a metaphor for our chaotic times as we attempt to understand the processes and structures which are manifest in the chaos and ineffable beauty of our ever-changing and dynamic natural world. In Fractals: Fractal Art the art of chaos is brilliantly represented by Jack Cleveland’s artistic sensibility and his mastery of math and computer science. Colorful swirls of recurring patterns descend smaller and smaller into imagined infinity, pleasing to the eye. Pat Cleveland will discuss this new release.
THE CAMEL DRIVER—Book Three in the Harry Przewalski series
by LEONARD KRISHTALKA | AVAILABLE NOW 978-1-941237-42-7
MYSTERY & DETECTIVE/Historical/Hard-Boiled/Private Investigators
A world-famous Carnegie Museum diorama “Arab Courier Attacked by Lions,” is the centerpiece and the motive for murder in The Camel Driver. It won the gold medal at the 1867 Paris World Exposition with its dramatic display of a huge, male Barbary lion lunging at a North African “courier” who is crossing the desert on a dromedary camel. Krishtalka will present its lurid history––sexual betrayal, graves robbed, humans taxidermied. Who is the “courier”?––his skull and teeth are mounted under his headdress. And who is the taxidermist? The novel reveals the abhorrent prejudices birthed, blessed and broadcast by anthropology and museums about peoples, race, racial superiority, and the ranking of humans in nature’s alleged “Great Chain of Being.” Kristalka will guide us through the intrigue.
WRONG MAN DOWN by JERRY MASINTON | AVAILABLE NOW 978-1-941237-57-1
FICTION: Crime / Murder for Hire / Woman Assassin / Black Humor
Millie Henshawe—intrepid, smart-talking, gay ex-GI—is the field agent (hired gun) for Continental Removals, LLC, in Boston, a niche firm catering to very special clients. Millie’s well-honed skills are tested when the unexpected happens and the hired gun becomes the target! Masinton will discuss how his main character grew from a dim impulse to a series of events in Millie’s life that eventually ended up as a novel. “It’s about story-telling,” Jerry says. “Most of the important characters have their own story or stories to tell, even as the overall story of the novel is developing. Paying attention to the relationship between truth and fiction is often very slippery. I’ll also say a few words about the importance of humor in fiction.”
