What the F*** Did I Do Last Night?

The memoir of an accidental comedian

At 17, Rowland Rivron had already fulfilled his ambitions as a professional drummer gigging in London’s West End. All that changed in the 1980s when he fell in with the new and anarchic ‘alternative comedians’. Alongside Rik Mayall, Ade Edmondson, Alexei Sayle and others, he appeared in such culturally defining shows as The Comic Strip Presents, The Young Ones, The Tube and of course French & Saunders, where he appeared as the charismatic Duane, one half of the inimitable Raw Sex. But the real story is what went on behind the scenes because, possessing the constitution of an ox, he fast got reputation as a party animal and loose cannon. When he wasn’t having penalty shoot-outs with Diana Ross in her Ritz suite or upsetting countless Hollywood stars, he could be found cycling down the staircase of the Groucho Club or setting fire to himself for money. Wherever he went there was bound to be trouble, hilarity and an eye-watering bar bill. In What the F*** Did I Do Last Night? he bares his soul (and quite a lot else) in a tale of hilarious encounters, death-defying escapades and shameless unprofessionalism. You have to read it to believe it.

Some people float through life with never a care, a worry, or a problem, and others break their back to get through it. Author William L. Otto was one of those men. In The Last of the Dinosaurs, he shares his story as well of the story of a family, an age, and a city. A businessman, veteran, father, son, player, operator, and friend, Otto grew up on the depression-era streets of the Bronx. His story begins with the hard scrabble life of a poor family doing what was necessary to survive, even as Otto’s father took the meager amount they made to spend on drinking and gambling. Like many boys of that time, Otto did what he could to earn money for his family, regardless of the risks. Through hard work and hustle, Otto found himself in the office cleaning business, an industry populated with union bosses, power brokers, and the kind of mob-connected characters infamous around New York City. The Last of the Dinosaurs chronicles Otto’s dealings with these colorful, but very real, figures in business and social circles His tales include friendships with Olympic champions, office brawls with union leaders, life-saving interventions from mob bosses, and showdowns with the city’s most powerful figures. Despite Otto’s resilience and hard work, he was eventually confronted with financial ruin, betrayal, and heartbreak from those he loved and trusted the most. He persevered and found happiness and peace with what remained, and to this day he remains indefatigable.

Prehistoric creatures have again invaded Crater Lake National Park …and this time there’s more than one. Henry Shore has been Chief Park Ranger at Crater Lake National Park for thirteen years now and thought the days when he’d had to fight a rogue dinosaur that lived in the caves below the lake were long over. Until one of his park rangers, to save a visitor’s life, is in a deadly struggle out in the woods with a new breed of dinosaur worse than the last one. It’s as big as a man, but this one is a young one. And growing. Then more of the creatures begin to show up everywhere, threatening people and destroying the tranquility and safety of his beloved park. A tourist trolley filled with fifteen people is snatched up off the crater’s rim by another version of the younger one…but this one has grown into a giant with fangs, claws and a deadly tail. And this one has wings. Ugly Gargoyles, Henry calls them. For this one isn’t alone. They’re flying beyond the park’s boundaries into the neighboring towns. So Henry, with the help of his son-in-law, a paleontologist named Justin, and a band of brave park rangers, and a few good soldiers, must not only protect his park and his people from monsters once more but find their lair and destroy it and them before the creatures kill again. *** Dinosaur, Crater Lake, Klamath Falls, thriller, suspense, horror, SF, romance, paleontologist, mystery, paleontology dig, Kathryn Meyer Griffith, Jurassic Park

Nineteenth century London is the center of a vast British Empire, a teeming metropolis where steam-power is king and airships ply the skies, and where Queen Victoria presides over three quarters of the known world—including the east coast of America, following the failed revolution of 1775. Young Gideon Smith has seen things that no green lad of Her Majesty's dominion should ever experience. Through a series of incredible events Gideon has become the newest Hero of the Empire. But Gideon is a man with a mission, for the dreaded Texas pirate Louis Cockayne has stolen the mechanical clockwork girl Maria, along with a most fantastical weapon—a great brass dragon that was unearthed beneath ancient Egyptian soil. Maria is the only one who can pilot the beast, so Cockayne has taken girl and dragon off to points east. Gideon and his intrepid band take to the skies and travel to the American colonies hot on Cockayne's trail. Not only does Gideon want the machine back, he has fallen in love with Maria. Their journey will take them to the wilds of the lawless lands south of the American colonies – to free Texas, where the mad King of Steamtown rules with an iron fist (literally), where life is cheap and honor even cheaper. Does Gideon have what it takes to not only save the day but win the girl? David Barnett's Gideon Smith and the Brass Dragon is a fantastical steampunk fable set against an alternate historical backdrop: the ultimate Victoriana/steampunk mash-up!

In Dinosaurs on the Roof, acclaimed author and playwright David Rabe delivers a singular work that reaffirms his extraordinary range and talent, and introduces a story and a collection of characters whose genuine audacity will echo with readers for years to come. In the town of Belger, Iowa, recently divorced Janet Cawley is attempting to find some peace and quiet, and perhaps a solitary place where she can finally fall apart. She's quit her job teaching fourth grade, though with the money she has, she will probably get along fine for another six months. She still needs to extricate herself from an affair with an ex-colleague that has the neighbors talking, but after that she can spend her time alone, jogging, drinking, and making the occasional trip into town. Her plans are interrupted one morning by the sudden appearance of her now-deceased mother's oldest friend, Bernice, who has an urgent matter to discuss. Bernice's preacher, it seems, has informed his congregation that they are to be visited by the Rapture that very evening -- and Bernice's first question, and most pressing fear, is how her dogs and cats will be fed and cared for after she's gone. Through that night and into the next, the lives of these two women will become inextricably woven together as they struggle to find reason in the incomprehensible and sometimes ludicrous events that unfold, and search for tangible signs of faith in themselves and the world around them. Dinosaurs on the Roof is a magnificent novel that speaks volumes about spirituality in the twenty-first century and explores the intimate, everyday gestures of the strangers closest to us with unforgettable humor and remarkable humanity.

It is 1978 in the Twin Cities, and Kevin Doyle, a high school senior, is a marginal student in love with keggers, rock and roll, and--unbeknownst to anyone else--a boy in his class with thick eyelashes and a bad attitude. His mother Eileen died two years earlier when her car plunged into the icy waters of the Mississippi River, and since then Kevin's relationship with his father Patrick has become increasingly distant. As lonely women vie for his father's attention, Kevin discovers Patrick's own closely guarded secret: he had planned to abandon his family for another woman. More disturbingly, his mother's death may well have been a suicide, not an accident. Complicating the family dynamic is the constant meddling of Kevin's outspoken Aunt Nora--who will never forgive Patrick for Eileen's death--along with Patrick's inability to stay single for very long. His loyalties divided between his father and his aunt, between his internal reality and his public persona, Kevin is forced to accept his gay identity and reevaluate his notions of family and love as painful truths emerge about both.
