Book excerpt: Ki Longfellow, author of the acclaimed The Secret Magdalene, has now written the astonishing life of Hypatia, famed throughout the Mediterranean world, a beauty and a genius, yet for 17 centuries ignored by history. As the Roman Empire fights for its life and emerging Christianity fights for our souls, Hypatia is the last great voice of reason. A woman of sublime intelligence, Hypatia ranks above not only all women, but all men. Hypatia dazzled the world with her brilliance, was courted by men of every persuasion and was considered the leading philosopher and mathematician of her age...yet her mathematics, her inventions, the very story of her life in all its epic and dramatic intensity, has gone untold. A heart-breaking love story, an heroic struggle against intolerance, a tragedy and a triumph, Hypatia walks through these pages fully realized while all around her Egypt's Alexandria, the New York City of its day, strives to remain a beacon of light in a darkening world.

Book excerpt: The Roaring Twenties, Chinatown, San Francisco: back-street blues and bathtub gin... hardball mobsters and hardheaded cops... seductive speakeasies and sizzling scandals. As the young Louis Armstrong blows his horn in the infamous Blue Canary, impetuous Nob Hill Socialite Elizabeth Stafford Hamilton plunges into a reckless affair with mysterious Li Kwan Won. Unknown to Lizzie, Li is the overlord of the city's vast bootlegging empire-and archenemy of her powerful husband, the San Francisco district attorney. Suddenly Lizzie's privileged, upper-crust life is shadowed by danger and intrigue-as she's trapped between her lover and her husband while they battle for control of the city. "Offbeat, unruly characters and vibrant atmosphere spill over the pages of this promising first novel set in San Francisco during Prohibition... Bootlegging, the Tong Wars, smoky speakeasies, inept mobsters, and the Teapot Dome scandal zigzag through these pages like streaks of lightning. The Jazz Era leaps to life." -Publishers Weekly

Book excerpt: This study reconstructs Hypatia’s existential and intellectual life and her modern Nachleben through a reception-oriented and interdisciplinary approach. Unlike previous publications on the subject, Hypatia explores all available ancient and medieval sources as well as the history of the reception of the figure of Hypatia in later history, literature, and arts in order to illuminate the ideological transformations/deformations of her story throughout the centuries and recover “the true story”. The intentionally provocative title relates to the contemporary historiographical notion of “false” or “fake history”, as does the overall conceptual and methodological treatment. Through this reception-oriented approach, this study suggests a new reading of the ancient sources that demonstrates the intrinsically political nature of the murder of Hypatia, caused by the phtonos (violent envy) of the Christian bishop Cyril of Alexandria. This is the first comprehensive treatment of the figure of Hypatia addressed to both academic readers – in Classics, Religious Studies, and Reception Studies – and a learned, non-specialist readership.

Book excerpt: HOUDINI HEART harkens back to the masters of suspenseful supernatural horror: Poe, Lovecraft, Shirley Jackson, but speaks with a wholly fresh voice. Once caught in its pages, there's no escaping Longfellow's terrible tale. Weeks ago, she was one of Hollywood's biggest writers, wed to one of its greatest stars. The doting mother of their golden child. But now? She's alone, tortured by a horrifying secret no woman could bear. Pursued by those she can't outrun, anguished by a guilt she can't endure, and driven close to madness, she flees to the one place she's ever called home: a small town in Vermont where River House still stands. To a child, the splendid hotel was mysterious and magical and all its glamorous guests knew delicious secrets. Cocooned in its walls, she will write one last book. Her atonement? Or her suicide note? But life is never as you dream it, and River House isn't what she'd always imagined it was. Intense, literary, and harrowing, Houdini Heart is a tale of bone-chilling horror, emotional torment, and psychological terror. Gripped by River House, trapped in an aging hotel of mirrors only Houdini could escape, how much can haunt a mind before it too is only a thing once imagined? "A haunting and disturbing journey through the psyche."-Erika Mailman, Author of "The Witch's Trinity"

Book excerpt: Case 4 in the Sam Russo mystery series finds Sam "out to sea" in more ways than one. He's been dragged along by his rich, flamboyant and interesting "friend," Mrs. Willingford, forced to sail on her husband's yacht. Along for a ride he doesn't want to go on is his friend and neighbor, the girl in the next room, Holly. And Jane, his "Egyptian" dog. Once again, Sam puts down the book he's reading, walks away from his local Staten Island movie palace where he's missing the latest 1950 movies, to find himself in a watery hell. Sam hates water. He's hated it ever since coming home from WWII's Pacific Front in a ship that hit a typhoon. So here he is now, stuck on a boat stuffed with other guests, all of whom are a mystery to him. A couple of actresses, a couple of movie stars, a couple of horsemen, a television comic, a couple of Hollywood movie writers, a robber baron, and enough stewards to serve them all. Things are bad enough, but get a whole lot worse when one actress throws herself into the sea, the other actress disappears, and Jane goes missing. Sam's stuck in an Agatha Christie book, a locked room case. And no one to help him but Mrs. Willingford and Holly.

In Good Dog, Bad Dog, he and his dog Jane barely missed gruesome deaths. That's twice now. The 1949 Kentucky Derby is about to run. Sam, who counts out his life by Derbies, has his seat by the radio all picked out. He'll be listening with Jane and his new friend Holly. Holly lives right next door to him in a room as shabby as his. She's a man. He's a woman. Sam doesn't care. He likes Holly. Jane likes Holly. She's the best thing Sam has if he doesn't count the love of his life, Jane. Or Mrs. Willingford-who's married to a rich someone else. Everything's set for the Derby until a rare and classy Lagonda rolls through Stapleton. Getting into that Lagonda, Holly's turned the worst trick of her life and threatened to ruin Sam's in the bargain. When the girl in the next room disappears, Russo and Jane find themselves lost in sordid world of hidden mansions, a twisted social club, and high society secrets.

We're on Staten Island where no one who is anyone would ever set foot. We're with Sam Russo, a neglected graduate of the Staten Island Home for Children. Self-named and self-styled, Russo's not long back from World War II where his unit fought on the Pacific Front with the very last of America's mounted troops. A dreamer with the gift of gab, Russo is now a young private eye who'd like to follow in the hard-boiled footsteps of Bogart's Philip Marlowe or Bogart's Sam Spade-if only he was hard-boiled. In this, his first serious case, it's a dream come true. Sam has two loves: racehorses and books. Now he's up to his hocks in the murders of three promising young jockeys in Saratoga Springs at America's oldest race track. The police want it all shoved under the carpet, the track wants three deaths to be three strange accidents, Sam Russo wants to prove he's a real Private Eye. Race horses, a gorgeous sassy dame, the Season at Saratoga, what more could a PI want? To survive it.

Book excerpt: Sam Russo, Private Eye, is back, after hotfooting it around America's oldest and classiest racetrack in Shadow Roll, the case that saw him chasing the killer of three promising jockeys. Shadow Roll brought him two good things: a yodeling dog named Jane, and an upper crust sharp-tongued dame called Mrs. Willingford. Now he's home again, in his one room fourth floor walk-up on Staten Island. Not much doing but going to the movies, lying in bed reading crime novels, and laying low with Jane. That first big case flattened him, shook his outlook on life. Getting a taste of real killings was bad enough to make small town detecting look good. As long as his dime doesn't run out. But dimes always run out. All it takes is a knock on the door for Sam and Jane to find themselves careening along naughty gaudy Broadway, in and out of one high-stepping star-studded show after another, in hot pursuit of a giant killer.
