Book Summary:

Since 1968, the name of motion picture director George Romero has been synonymous with the living dead. His landmark film Night of the Living Dead formed the paradigm of modern zombie cinema; often cited as a metaphor for America during the Vietnam War and the Civil Rights movement, the film used the tenets of the drive-in horror movie genre to engage the sociophobics of late–1960s culture. Subsequently Romero has created five more zombie films, and other directors, including Tom Savini and Zack Snyder, have remade Romero’s movies. This survey of those remakes examines ways in which the sociocultural contexts of different time periods are reflected by changes to the narrative (and the zombies) of Romero’s original versions.

Book Summary:

"Back from the Dead: The Rising of an African Spirit" is a celebration of life, its different seasons, and the struggle to overcome. It is an anthology consisting of fifty poems; some poems are images of personal struggles, others visualize the celebration of love, and a few are odes to great leaders and historical reflections. The single message this book intends to transfer to the reader is that a sense of self-love and appreciation does a world of good. Throughout the book, references are made to Africa with the sole intention of encouraging people, Africans on the continent and across the Diaspora, to reflect on their rich identity, take responsibility for their self-concept, and to be proud of their heritage in order to inject a greater sense of self-worth and responsibility in their daily lives.

Book Summary:

A vicious killer is murdering the key people involved in the making of the movie "Nine Lives, Two Men," the true story of the battle between New York City detective Denny Delaney and the terrorist bomber Felix the Cat. It was Delaney who ushered Felix to his death in a Grand Central tunnel after Felix's terrorist rampage in the prequel to "Clawed" entitled "Nine Lives Too Many." Who is now spooking New York with these grisly homicides? If Denny didn't know better, he'd think it was his old nemesis Felix. The reader is in for some surprises as well as a roller-coaster ride as this thriller careens and caroms on its suspenseful track. The book revisits Denny's Manhattan and reacquaints readers with characters from the earlier book. There are humorous morsels in the story as well as grub for show biz junkies. Rooney has pulled out all the stops in this cliffhanger depicting a relentless murderer who is hell-bent on carrying out his personal vendetta on the cast and crew of a movie about terrorists.

Book Summary:

Saturday, October 12, 2002 was the day Australia changed forever.477.It was our 'September 11'. It was the bombing of Bali. Peter Hughes was the man whose blistered and swollen face we saw on television during the shocking first hours of the news coverage from Bali. He literally took our breath away when we heard him quietly tell rescuers he was okay and to help those worse off than him. Looking at him, we could see that he was badly injured himself. And indeed he was. Later, he lapsed into a month-long coma during which he died three times and had to be revived.477. BACK FROM THE DEAD is a gripping and personal account of the day terrorism cast its deadly shadow on Australia as told by the man who became the human face of the victims, a reluctant and accidental hero who did what he knew best: never give up hope. This is the unforgettable story of the unimaginable - the day we lost our innocence. It seemed in the aftermath of the tragedy that almost everyone knew one of the victims or knew someone who did. We are all connected somehow.477.It is also a testament to courage, mateship, and the remarkable resilience of the human spirit to overcome seemingly insurmountable odds.
