Fossil Hunter is hard SF in the tradition of Larry Niven about a world inhabited by the Quintaglios, a dinosaurian species that has evolved a human level of intelligence and culture. Toroca, a Quintaglio geologist, is under attack for his controversial new theory of evolution. But the origins of his people turn out to be more complex than even he imagined, for he soon discovers the wreckage of an ancient starship -- a relic of the aliens who transplanted Earth's dinosaurs to this solar system. Now, Toroca must convince Emperor Dybo that evolution is true; otherwise, the territorial violence the Quintaglios inherited from their tyrannosaur ancestors will destroy the last survivors of Earth's prehistoric past. At the publisher's request, this title is being sold without Digital Rights Management software (DRM) applied.

One of the most successful series of its time, Have Gun—Will Travel became a cultural phenomenon in the late 1950s and made its star, Richard Boone, a nationwide celebrity. The series offered viewers an unusual hero in the mysterious, Shakespeare-spouting gunfighter known only as “Paladin” and garnered a loyal fan base, including a large female following. In Have Gun—Will Travel, film scholar Gaylyn Studlar draws on a remarkably wide range of episodes from the series’ six seasons to show its sophisticated experimentation with many established conventions of the Western. Studlar begins by exploring how the series made the television Western sexy, speaking to mid-twentieth century anxieties and aspirations in the sexual realm through its “dandy” protagonist and more liberal expectations of female sexuality. She also explores the show’s interest in a variety of historical issues and contemporaneous concerns—including differing notions of justice and the meaning of racial and cultural difference in an era marked by the civil rights movement. Through a production history of Have Gun—Will Travel, Studlar provides insight into the television industry of the late 1950s and early 1960s, showing how, in this transition period in which programming was moving from sponsor to network control, the series’ star exercised controversial influence on his show’s aesthetics. Because Have Gun—Will Travel was both so popular and so different from its predecessors and rivals, it presents a unique opportunity to examine what pleasures and challenges television Westerns could offer their audiences. Fans of the show as well as scholars of TV history and the Western genre will enjoy this insightful volume.

Andreas H. Bitesnich is a perfectionist "the only way to fly higher than the others", as he expresses it. By his own admission, he lives, breathes, devours photography; he learns, explores, experiments. Self-taught, he dreamed at a young age of becoming a fashion photographer. To pursue his dream, he equipped himself with a camera and a light and persuaded models to pose. In his subjects, he was looking for harmony and balance yet tension was an important ingredient too. As he puts it, "The (images) belong to an organic creative process that has to do with the fascination for the relation between body, time and space in a continual interaction of tension and balance". Oftentimes he found what he was looking for when the models posed undressed which allowed him to capture the bodies surprisingly well with the play of light and shadow. Andreas H. Bitesnich's approach has always been to allow for and trust his intuition. He feels it important to interact with his models to gain an appreciation of who they are before turning the camera upon them. His respect of personalities unearths the subjects most beautiful side which becomes central to the power visible within his images. Combined with a mastery of technique, this style gives Andreas H. Bitesnich the tools to achieve the exact image he envisions. Unsurprisingly, Bitesnich's nude portraits soon caught the attention of top European magazines and consequently images were published in Stern, Playboy, Max and GQ, to name a few commercial projects followed. The quality of his work quickly established Bitesnich as a top photographer.
