The book is presented as a series of short autobiographical vignettes that take place after the childhood death of his younger brother, Nicolas, who passed away in 1990. Each episode taken from Girard's childhood, adolescence, and young adulthood offers a glimpse into his multifaceted and ongoing process of reckoning, as he struggles to reconcile the magnitude of this tragedy with the minutiae of his daily experience of loss. Girard treats his subject with a spare line and a refreshingly matter-of-fact tone that prove to be all the more moving in their honest simplicity. Ultimately, Nicolas unfolds as a delicate portrait of the many faces of mourning, identified with surprising humor and pathos. Softcover, 4 1/2-in. x 7 1/2-in., B&W. Cover price $9.95.

    Japanese/Manga Format - Volume 31 - 1st printing. Story and art by KOSUKE FUJISHIMA. Ever since a cosmic phone call led to five literal young goddesses - Belldandy, Urd, Skuld, and, like occasional vowels, Peorth and Lind - coming to live in college student Keiichi's residence, his personal life has been turned upside-down, sideways, and sometimes even into strange dimensions! Peorth is called back to Heaven-which is probably just as well, considering the mischief she caused in getting Keiichi to express his true feelings to Bell-chan. But the gate to return her isn't opening-because it turns out that such gates aren't things, they're beings that seek information . . . and this one, in the form of a cute girl, is on strike-until she gathers certain earthly knowledge involving love and kisses!

But now, he...is reborn - and he's bringing fragments of the other universe with him!

    Volume 36 - 1st printing. "Samurai Armies 1467-1649!" By Stephen Turnbull. The Sengoku The Jidai, 'Age of Warring States', is the age of the samurai - the military aristocracy of Japan. This period, which lasted from the outbreak of the Onin War in 1467 to the establishment of the Tokugawa Shogunate in the early 17th century, was a period of endemic warfare, when a lack of central control led to constant struggles between the daimyo, 'great names', who sought to extend the influence of their families through political and military means. This title will examine the complicated nature of family and clan that governed so much of the initial organization of the armies, how this changed over the period and how battlefield tactics developed over a series of major encounters such as Nagashino and Sekigahara. Softcover, 96 pages, PC/PB&W Cover price $25.95.

    Overspray HC (2008) 1-1ST
    Published Dec 2008 by Picturebox.

    1st printing. "Overspray: Riding High with the Kings of California Airbrush Art!" By Norman Hathaway. Overspray is the comprehensive account of an exuberant form of art in the 1970s and the culture that made it famous - airbrushing. Inspired equally by surf graphics and psychedelia, a generation of young artists embraced the optimism of the Los Angeles art scene and combined it with the slick, manicured surfaces of Hollywood. Suddenly, every record cover looked shiny, every pair of lips was high gloss, every palm tree glistened, and clothes were as loud as the sun. The word was awash in perfectly smooth, vibrantly colored forms. Overspray tells these artists' stories for the first time, reproducing hundreds of images of the best airbrushed work, unseen production art, and ephemera. Overspray will bring that era to vivid, glossy life. Hardcover, 9 1/2-in. x 10 1/2-in., full color. Mature Readers Cover price $50.00.
