Hello. My name is Stefan G. Bucher, and you're looking at a collection of my monsters. For 100 days, I filmed myself putting a few drops of ink on a piece of paper each day and transforming the resulting blot into a new monster. Every night I posted the result on my website dailymonster.com and stood back in wonder as visitors from all over the world told me the amazing stories behind each creature. WHAT'S INSIDE THIS BOOK? 100 Daily Monsters 257 of my favorite monster stories 1 DVD featuring all 100 Daily Monster video clips, 701 bonus comments and stories, one Real Time Monster, a special video message from yours truly, and 10 Open Source Ink Blots that let you make your own Daily Monsters. GO AHEAD! TAKE A LOOK INSIDE! The monsters aren't going to bite... Well ... hang on ... they actually might. But I made sure they all had their rabies shots before I sent the book to print. Just look out for Monsters 44 and 57. And for No.79. He just gets too excited. And No.82. He's got a circular saw for a hand, and he's off his medication. Other than that you should be fine!

The In-Betweens is a collection of lyrical non-fiction essays about the life of Davon Loeb. This collection represents issues a young biracial man faces in the American society that has no category box to check for both races. His meditations about race extends from New Jersey and out to Alabama by retelling stories concerning his family, friends, and community. This coming of age collection is equally narrative as it is lyrical. These essays will ask us how we arrive to new maturities while addressing the liminal spaces in-between them. Davon struggles with being a son, a brother, a friend, a lover, and a man who is seeking his identity through excavating the past and the present. This memoir will leave readers in the footsteps of any American in search of self-discovery.

The Business of Being a Writer

Writers talk about their work in many ways: as an art, as a calling, as a lifestyle. Too often missing from these conversations is the fact that writing is also a business. The reality is, those who want to make a full- or part-time job out of writing are going to have a more positive and productive career if they understand the basic business principles underlying the industry. The Business of Being a Writer offers the business education writers need but so rarely receive. It is meant for early-career writers looking to develop a realistic set of expectations about making money from their work or for working writers who want a better understanding of the industry.

"Los Angeles may be best known as the hub of the film and television industry, but this collection of short fiction proves that beyond the beach and the glamour of Hollywood there is much more that makes the City of Angels special. Featuring an eclectic mix of fiction from a variety of talented literary minds--including TC Boyle, Ron Carlson, Judith Freeman, Percival Everett, and more--this anthology defies genre or easy categorization. Topics explored range from the deeply personal, such as a lesbian couple's loss of a child and the reaction of a young man to a natural disaster, to the larger-than-life, including a vivid tale of a robot-infested dystopian Long Beach. This allows the creativity and vivacity of the Los Angeles literary scene to be put on display, with a powerful sense of place as the core of this ambitious and insightful project"--

A Death in Hong Kong: The MacLennan Case of 1980 and the Suppression of a Scandal

In January 1980 a young police officer named John MacLennan committed suicide in his Ho Man Tin flat. His death came mere hours before he was to be arrested for committing homosexual acts still, at that point, illegal in Hong Kong. But this was more than the desperate act of a young man, ashamed and afraid; both his death and the subsequent investigation were a smokescreen for a scandal that went to the heart of the establishment. MacLennan came to Hong Kong from Scotland during a time of social unrest and corruption scandals, a time when the triads still took their cut, and when homosexuality and paedophilia were considered interchangeable and both offered easy targets for blackmail. The governorship of Sir Murray MacLehose was to be a time of reform and progress, but with that remit came the determination of many to suppress scandals and silence those who stirred up trouble. Both the life and death of John MacLennan seemed to many of those in power to threaten the stability of one of Britain’s last colonies.
