Nestled within the redwood forests of Monte Rio, northern California, sits Bohemian Grove, a 2,700-acre retreat owned by the exclusive gentlemen's San Francisco Bohemian Club, founded in 1872. Every summer, the retreat is frequented by the political and business elite of the US. Shrouded in secrecy, the activities at the grove have become the subject of countless conspiracy theories and rumours. In 2000, Alex Jones, the founder of infowars, broke into the encampment in an attempt to "expose the new world order" and filmed the Cremation of Care, a theatrical ceremony in which an effigy of the members' "worldly cares" is burnt. Beyond inspiring a bizarre attack on Bohemian Grove by a masked vigilante calling himself the Phantom Patriot in 2002, the release of the video footage, set within an alarmist context, was instrumental in increasing Jones' profile as a far-right activist and subsequently springboarded infowars to become an influential outlet of fake news in recent US politics. In 'Parliament of Owls', Jack Latham investigates the effects that a vacuum of information can cause. Includes 13 transcripts from various sources and an essay by Professor Peter Phillips.

An ancient evil magic has arisen, luring the Emperor's enemies into new and deadlier schemes. It will take all of Owl's hard-won training, and the combined efforts of his old friends and new allies, to help the Scholar King steer the ship of state through the shoals and riptides ahead.

The Birdwatcher's Mysteries: Book Six "A wonderfully clever, charming, and addictive series." David Morrell U.S. Fish and Wildlife Agent, Angela Dimato, struggles to rebuild her life after the murder of her partner. During a routine tour of the Rocky Mountain Arsenal, Angela assesses the growing prairie dog town within the national wildlife refuge when she spots a person out among the burrows of the prairie dog village. Ordering the visitors to remain on the bus, she hikes out to investigate, discovering the body of a woman. Angela's investigation turns sinister when it's determined that the dead woman - the leader of a group petitioning for the eradication of the prairie dogs - was murdered. As Angela follows the twists and turns of the case, and more lives are put at stake, she realizes that solving this case might be the key to also solving her partner's murder.

Set in the nation's capital, A Parliament for Owls is the story of a conservative Christian media mogul with presidential aspirations who, when confronted by a scandal that could end his bid for power and bring down the family business, succumbs to a beautiful blackmailer. Certain that winning the culture wars and defeating a liberal agenda is a 'just end', he uses questionable 'means' as a cover-up - leading him and his followers into a spiritual wasteland… 'a desolation of dragons and a parliament for owls'.

Discover a graphic novel unlike any other--a brilliant steampunk reimagining of Frankenstein set in colonial Mexico. In the Republic of Santander, non-Christian magic is frowned upon, if not outright prohibited. But when Cristina Franco, an apprentice shaman, is killed by witch owls, her brother Enrique cannot let her go. With forbidden alchemy and engineering, Enrique brings her back to life: part human, part machine. Though her very existence is an abomination to Santander's citizens, Cristina vows to use her new abilities to protect her country from attack. With help from a handsome skinwalker named Mateo, Cristina and Enrique track down the witch owl coven and uncover a sinister plot to bring Santander under the rule of the Witch Owl Parliament, whose legendary cruelty would dismantle the country's hard-won freedoms. At the same time, Indigenous folks and immigrants are disappearing from Santander--including Enrique's beloved, Gaspar. Could the attacks and the disappearances be related? As the witch owls attack more trains and more refugees go missing, the trio must uncover the witch owls' origins to understand their weakness. Energetic illustrations by Pura Belpré Award winner Raúl the Third bring to life the words of award-winning author and poet David Bowles. Don't miss this amazing first volume of the Clockwork Curandera trilogy!
