An outstanding compilation of the first two years of the 11 year run of Terry and the Pirates, a classic strip from the 1930's and 40's. It's a strip about high adventure in the Orient, it features our young engenuine Terry, and his idol, the brave Pat Ryan, a cross between a suave Cary Grant, and the swashbuckling hero of lore, Alan Quartermain. They are joined by an exciting assortment of colorful characters, including a Lauren Bacall inspired femme named Burma, object of Pat's affection, and the infamous Dragon Lady, a true femme fatale, and one of the most storied comic villains of all time. Like the sister publication of The complete Dick Tracy, this hardbound volume tells the origins of its creation by writer Milton Caniff and explains the significance of the comic throughout it entire run. Going into detail about real life events that inspired many of the going's on in the strip. The Rise of communism in China, German espionage leading up to WW2, etc. a wonderful volume for any fan of classic americana, and/or the history of comics, and adventure stories. An especially good buy when you get the exceptional price overstock offers on this book, trust me, when you shop around you'll find this is the best deal on the net.

Great book, a totally enjoyable read. This was slow to ship, however.

I¿m almost embarrassed to admit that this guy Murakami escaped my radar for so long. I've since remedied that and read everything; back to back. This book is a good introduction and also happens to be his first translated to English novel. I liken him to a Japanese hybrid of Vonnegut, Borges, and Salinger with a bit of Phillip K. Dick thrown in. It's an easy read once you catch the rhythm in his coolly observant and dispassionate style. What begins as a lazy detective story rapidly careens into more Kafkaesque territory; all done in a matter-of-fact kind of way that is at once, disarming and mystical, yet totally accessible. A good read by an important talent who is catching fire, big time.

NOW everyone has heard of Philip K Dick. Then, not so much. I bought this for my nephew, but will probably reread. Very inventive science fiction about another universe in which we lost WWII. The writer is gone, but his reputation rises.

Somebody leant me this book. I enjoyed it so much so I bought it for friends I knew would like it, logical people with a wry humor. Dick Feynman was a brilliant Nobel Prize winning Scientist on the Manhattan Project, the project to build the atomic bomb. In this book of various anecdotes, he reflects on his experiences that were happening in his life around the time. Although he is brilliant it was not difficult to understand and get a great laugh. His experience in safe-cracking is side-splitting. Get the book for that one chapter alone.

First "chapter" books for children are usually very dull affairs - "see Dick run", etc. Even the children trying to read them are having a boring time. However, this unique James Marshall book is actually a parody of those, only in vocabulary that kids can read! Used this for school & library storytimes and the kids had a great time - one audience of first-graders laughing and "falling" off their chairs. A sequel to "Three By The Sea". Imaginative and funny. Published in this format of a thin paper binder, so not a "forever" book in a child's library, but acceptable for the learning-to-read stage.

I enjoyed "Silks" very much. I have read Dick Francis for years and am always on the lookout for his books. This book is easily as good as any of his others and priced right. I will continue to purchase Dick Francis.
