T/James Reagan has novelized Richard Kelly's 2006 cult film "Southland Tales" into a complete vision of a complex story of power, politics, and porno. The title refers to the Southland, a name used by locals to refer to Southern California and Greater Los Angeles. Set in the then-near future of 2008, as part of an alternate history, the novel is an expanded portrait of Los Angeles, and a satiric commentary on the military–industrial complex and the infotainment industry. Combining the theatrical cut, the Cannes cut, and the graphic prequel novels, T/James Reagan offers his trademark unflinching post-Empire vision on Kelly's ambitious, sprawling narrative.

Sweet and Spirited Heartwarming, haunting, and often hilarious, the delicious stories in Chocolate for a Teen's Spirit touch on the things all young women face as they move into adulthood and search for spiritual grounding during times both tame and turbulent. Written by teens themselves as well as by women with good memories for those years gone by, these true-life tales range from lighthearted vignettes to poignant confessions. The Chocolate storytellers share their own moving experiences -- about setting a goal and reaching it, about being the victim of a cruel trick and rising above it, about finding love in unexpected places, and about finding the Divine in all things. Chocolate for a Teen's Spirit will help you discover all the facets of a spirit-filled life -- ways to nurture your faith in yourself, to use your creative gifts, to find love through friends, parents, partners, and teachers, and to experience pure joy.

‘“Whoever said beggars can’t be choosers,” my grandfather would remark when she was out of earshot, “never met your mother.”’ Jean Russo was a single mother in the 1950s, badly paid and living with her only son, Richard, in the upstairs apartment of her parents’ home on Helwig Street in Gloversville, New York. When Richard left for University, Jean saw her chance to escape a dead-end town in search of a better life elsewhere. So began a series of ill-conceived adventures, as ambitious son and restless mother strove to find somewhere to belong. Hilarious and heartbreaking, a story of growing up and of growing old, of becoming a man whilst remaining a son, of thinking that the grass is greener somewhere else, but knowing that going home is inevitable: On Helwig Street is a poignant tribute to a complicated mother and a brilliant evocation of mid-century America.

When I first started traveling, I was unprepared for the experiences that were about to unfold. My only hope was to get a better understanding of the many cultures that makes the world such a unique place. I also have a great love for people and wanted to meet as many people as I possibly could. That experience did come to light as I move from one part of the globe to another. I can honestly say that of all the countries I have traveled around the world, not one place share the same similarity. From the poor and hungry in the far east to the middle east and from the squatters camp in Soweto to the Aborigines down in Australia, all embraced their own sets of values which has no comparison yet there are some values that enables the traveler to see that in spite of these unique cultural differences, people do share one thing in common. The will to embrace others who they may consider to be different in many ways.
