n My Bookstore our greatest authors write about the pleasure, guidance, and support that their favorite bookstores and booksellers have given them over the years. The relationship between a writer and his or her local store and staff can last for years or even decades. Often it’s the author’s local store that supported him during the early days of his career, that continues to introduce and hand-sell her work to new readers, and that serves as the anchor for the community in which he lives and works. My Bookstore collects the essays, stories, odes, and words of gratitude and praise for stores across the country in 6856 68 pieces written by our most beloved authors. It’s a joyful, industry-wide celebration of our brick-and-mortar stores and a clarion call to readers everywhere at a time when the value and importance of these stores should be shouted from the rooftops. Perfectly charming line drawings by Leif Parsons illustrate each storefront and other distinguishing features of the shops.

n Skulls, best-selling author Simon Winchester (author of The Professor and the Madman; Atlantic: A Biography of the Ocean; Krakatoa: The Day the World Exploded; and others) tells the rich and fascinating story of skulls, both human and animal, from every perspective imaginable: historical, biographical, cultural, and iconographic. Presenting details about the parts of a skull (including the cranium, the mandible, the shape and positioning of eye sockets, and species-specific features like horns, teeth, beaks, and bills), information about the science and pseudoscience of skulls, and a look at skulls in religion, art, and popular culture, his stories and information are riveting and enlightening. At the center of Skulls is a stunning, never-before-seen visual array of the skulls of more than 300 animals that walk, swim, and fly. The skulls are from the collection of Alan Dudley, a British collector and owner of what is probably the largest and most complete private collection of skulls in the world. Every skull is beautifully photographed to show several angles and to give the reader the most intimate view possible. Each includes a short explanatory paragraph and a data box with information on the animal’s taxonomy, behavior, and diet. Skulls was published in December 2011 as an e-book for the iPad by the innovative e-book publishers Touch Press, creators of the best-selling e-books for iPad The Elements and Solar System. Both books were also published in print by Black Dog & Leventhal.


Skulls is a beautiful, spellbinding exploration of more than 300 different animal crania—amphibians, birds, fish, mammals, and reptiles—written by New York Times best-selling author Simon Winchester and produced in collaboration with Theodore Gray and Touch Press, the geniuses behind The Elements and Solar System.

Every script, every episode of the innovative, hilarious, and absurd Monty Python’s Flying Circus, one of the most influential television series of all time, is included here, plus hundreds of annotations, behind-the-scenes stories, interviews, and more, as well as photographs, drawings, and Terry Gilliam’s iconic artwork.

M

onty Python’s Flying Circus is one of the most popular, important, and oft-quoted comedy series of all time. Python’s influence on comedy has been compared to the Beatles’ influence on music. This landmark work collects the complete scripts for every one of the 45 episodes of Flying Circus: every silly setup, every clever conceit, every snide insult, and every saucy aside from these classic skits, including “The Ministry of Silly Walks,” “The Dead Parrot,” “Banter in a Cheese Shop,” “Spam, the Funniest Joke in the World,” “The Spanish Inquisition,” “The Argument Clinic,” “The Fish-Slapping Dance,” “The Lumberjack Song,” and all the rest. Every script is thoroughly annotated with notes that cover the plethora of cultural, historical, and topical references touched upon in each sketch. Sidebars and commentary throughout include profiles of the principles—Graham Chapman, Eric Idle, Terry Jones, Michael Palin, Terry Gilliam, and John Cleese—and interviews with the cast and crew; fascinating facts about technical concerns, set design, and shooting locations; insider stories from on and off the set, including arguments, accidents, and practical jokes; goofs and gaffes; and much more. Also included are hundreds of stills and artwork from the shows.

Luke Dempsey is deputy editor of booklist.com and the author of the memoir A Supremely Bad Idea. A native of England—and a massive Python fan—he currently lives in Brooklyn, NY.

Psychos

OCTOBER 2012

Serial Killers, Depraved Madmen, and the Criminally Insane Edited and with Commentary by John Skipp This collection of 35 terrifying tales of serial killers at large, written by the great masters of the genre, plumbs the horrifying depths of a deranged mind and the evil that compels a human being to murder, gruesomely and methodically, over and over again.

F

rom Hannibal Lecter (The Silence of the Lambs) to Patrick Bateman (American Psycho), stories of serial killers and psychos loom large and menacing in our collective psyche. Tales of their grisly conquests have kept us cowering under the covers but still turning the pages. Psychos is the first book to collect in a single volume the scariest and most well-crafted fictional works about these deranged killers. Some of the stories are classics, the best that the genre has to offer, by renowned writers such as Neil Gaiman, Bret Easton Ellis, Joyce Carol Oates, Robert Bloch, and Thomas Harris. Other selections are from the latest and most promising crop of new authors. John Skipp, who is also the editor of Zombies, Demons, and Werewolves and Shapeshifters, provides fascinating insight, through two nonfiction essays, into our insatiable obsession with serial killers and how these madmen are portrayed in popular culture.

Weird and Wonderful Christmas

NOVEMBER 2012

Curious and Crazy Customs and Coincidences from Around the World Joey Green, Illustrations by Lisa K. Weber In Weird and Wonderful Christmas, Joey Green has unearthed stockingfuls of juicy holiday curiosities for an offbeat look at a heartfelt tradition—and a one-size-fits-all Christmas present no one will ever return!

A

h, the delights of Christmas. Holiday carolers, beautifully wrapped packages, twinkling lights, and…a feast of caterpillars fried in oil?! Welcome to Weird and Wonderful Christmas, a journey off the beaten path to the bizarre side of the world’s most beloved holiday, where for every Christmas sugarplum there is a plate of lutefisk (that’s cod soaked in lye, a Christmas favorite in Norway). December 25th has become so much more—and less—than a sacred religious celebration. It is a time to be joyously selfless and a time to indulge in an orgy of consumerism; a time for sober reflection and a time to lift a few too many glasses of eggnog and wake up facedown under the office conference table. And, apparently, if you are Werner Erhard, a time to send out 62,824 personal greeting cards. Or for the 5,000 citizens of Porto, Portugal, it’s a time to dress up as Santa Claus and parade through the town. Austrian children leave Father Christmas a glass of beer instead of milk and cookies, and in the closedoff streets of Caracas, Venezuela, worshippers roller-skate to church. Weird and Wonderful Christmas covers every wacky, wonderful, little-known Christmas tradition from every corner of the world.

Joey Green is the author of more than 40 books, including How They Met, Cleaning Magic, Amazing Pet Cures, and The Mad Scientist Handbook. A native of Miami, Florida, he is a former contributing editor at National Lampoon and a former advertising copywriter at J. Walter Thompson. He lives in Los Angeles with his wife and two daughters.
