Rebellious Laughter changes the way we think about the ordinary joke. Claiming that humor in America is a primary cultural weapon, Boskin surveys the multitude of joke cycles that have swept the country during the last fifty years. Dumb Blonde jokes. Elephant jokes. Jewish-American Princess jokes. Lightbulb jokes. Readers will enjoy humor from many diverse sources: whites, blacks, women, and Hispanics; conservatives and liberals; public workers and university students; the powerless and power brokers. Boskin argues that jokes provide a cultural barometer of concerns and anxieties, frequently appearing in our day-to-day language long before these issues become grist for stand-up comics.

12,090 A.D. It is a dark time for the world. Humanity is just crawling out from under three hundred years of domination by the race of vampires known as the Nobility. The war against the vampires has taken its toll; cities lie in ruin, the countryside is fragmented into small villages and fiefdoms that still struggle against nightly raids by the fallen vampires-and the remnants of their genetically manufactured demons and werewolves. Every village wants a Hunter-one of the warriors who have pledged their laser guns and their swords to the eradication of the Nobility. But some Hunters are better than others, and some bring their own kind of danger with them... From creator Hideyuki Kikuchi, one of Japan's leading horror authors with illustrations by renowned Japanese artist, Yoshitaka Amano, best known for his illustrations in Neil Gaiman's Sandman: The Dream Hunters and the Final Fantasy games.

December 21, 2012: The fabled Feathered Serpent begins his relentless ascent out of the bowels of the earth, escaping thousands of years of torturous confinement. Controversial astrobiologist and archaeologist Caden Montez—who believes Teotihuacan is the best site on earth to find alien life forms, such as the Serpent—is on his trail. While exploring this so-called "City of the Gods"—a place so eerie it terrified even the most ferocious Aztecs—she discovers that the Serpent has broken free. Ancient Mayan priests prophesied that when the God-King returned, he would open the gates to the End Time. Together with an ancient 1000-year-old Mayan warrior—who has crossed the Gulf of Time to save humanity from extinction—the outrageous and beautiful Caden must stop him. Scientists, political leaders, and journalists who have long ridiculed Caden's theories have no one else to turn to. The Mayans' Fourth Horseman of the Apocalypse is on the move, and humanity's survival hangs in the balance.

The Tradition and First Born Law have governed the way of life for hundreds of years – an agreement where humans supply Vampires with fresh blood for the protection of their cities, and a law that promises the first born child of each family to that city’s Vampire cause. Vampires reign supreme underground, but even they fear what awaits them on the desolate surface. The faltering Sun has dawned a new age of faster, stronger Vampires – the Vampeez. Levi is a First Born – property of Salvation and scheduled to be Turned on his 18th birthday. When his girlfriend, Sarah, is Turned months before his own birthday, he finds himself thrust into the secrets of the Vampire world in attempts to salvage her memories and their relationship. Salvation’s council seizes Sarah’s vulnerability to begin their plans to do away with the Vampeez, but they must also contend with a new threat. A new Vampeez Queen has been crowned and is about to prove herself to be a formidable foe.

The Complete Hidden Blood Trilogy in a Cool Digital Boxset A Paranormal Urban Fantasy series to really sink your teeth into! Vampires, wizards, witches, necromancers, strange chemists, hordes of trolls - who knew British Urban Fantasy could be so wild? Vampire Enforcer The phone rang, and like a fool I answered. Mistake number one. Then I agreed to do a job for the Hidden Council. Definitely mistake number two. Now I've lost count of my bad choices, same as I have the bodies, as they're piling up faster than a troll after free chalk. As I get to grips with this new magic I've been gifted, the city remains under a spell of violence, and it's down to yours truly to deal with it. But I'm a noob at this job, ill-prepared and with my own personal demons to fight. My hunger is taking hold as the vampire nature encroaches, the need to feed impossible to resist, and my inherited magic is so volatile it's practically splitting me apart. Nevertheless, blood is being spilled and heads are getting cracked, so I must be doing something right. I'm Kate. First Vampire Enforcer. I think I might actually be good at this. Twisted Potions This was supposed to be simple. Make a nice dinner for the Chemist, a ghoul with a penchant for stand-up and utterly obsessed with all things alchemical, and fulfill my promise. But it hasn't gone according to plan, and now corpses are littering the streets—although they're getting eaten pretty rapidly too. I'm not exactly in anyone's good graces either, as it's partly my fault, and my whole life is being turned upside down and inside out. If that wasn't enough, my husband's still sick, and still a muppet, I think something has gone wonky inside me, and my past keeps coming back to haunt me. Still, it's all in a day's work. It's just a shame this vampire enforcer doesn't actually get paid for all the good she does. Hunting Trip It was time for a vacation from the magical mayhem. Camping, that's what we all agreed on. Nothing fancy, just a chance to relax. Nothing could go wrong, not when our party consisted of wizards, shifters, vampires, and necromancers. All there to protect my young child. But things have gone wrong, and before we'd even burned the sausages I found myself alone, and that was just the start of this nightmare. Trolls are jittery, dwarves are chatty, vampires have become insanely murderous, and me, I'm getting crazed. One thing's for certain, I'm never going camping again.
