      This book combines articles and comics to tell the first-person story of a Japanese artist who spent time in jail for producing obscene art—specifically for providing digital file of her pussy for 3-D printing in a crowdfunding campaign. The comics here are straightforward and highly amusing, and her story is utterly incredible. The Adventures of Lando Calrissian is a trilogy of poorly written books. They remain interesting, however, and are not outside the realm of possibility in the star wars universe. The main problem with the book is the shifting in time/5.

    Christine Falls, written by Benjamin Black (Booker Prize-winning author of The Sea, John Banville in psuedonym), is marketed as a mystery-thriller - a more erudite Da Vinci code. In truth, it's much closer to the noir genre - ultimately acting as a character novel, built on a mystery, and surrounded by deathly overtones/5. The late Nancie Allie, Company Artists owner, formed California Artists in , after spending more than ten years as a professional artist. Terry Allie, Nancie’s husband and former professional artist for over 20 years is fully involved and carrying on in all aspects of California Artists and is present at all show events as well.

    The book's editor writes that this book is a "mid-career retrospective of a great photographer's greatest pictures." And indeed, great they are! A lot of climbing involved here--Mt. McKinley, El Capitan, and many steep rock faces/5. And I skimmed almost the entire book until I got to the final 20% when the mystery arc finally reached it's pinnacle and I was forced to pay attention. With that being said, I'm still hopeful that since this is the first of a series, the author was just setting everything up for the sequels. I'm giving book 2 a try, but if it doesn't pick up the4/5.
