The New York Times-bestselling manga about fandom continues. Recent high-school transfer student Hasegawa Kodaka is pathetically inept at making friends. When he comes across the brash loner Mikazuki Yozora, who typically chats with her imaginary friend, the two outsiders become the unlikeliest of allies.
Go to the scene of the crime with Jack ´´Flashgun´´ Casey, crime photographer for the Morning Express! When he goes out to cover a murder, his pictures do more than just appear in the newspaper. Casey and his girlfriend, reporter Ann Williams, always find some clue in his photos that lead them to delve deeper in to the details of the crime. Together, with the help of Captain Logan of the police department, they crack countless cases. After capturing the culprits, relax with the gang at The Blue Note Café, an atmospheric little bar where they chat up Ethelbert, the sardonic barkeep. The background piano music makes you smell the scotch in the glasses and see the flickering neon haze reflected in the windows from the rainy night outside.

Here is the ultimate book on the worldwide movement of hackers, pranksters, and activists that operates under the non-name Anonymous, by the writer the Huffington Post says ´´knows all of [Anonymous´s] deepest, darkest secrets.´´ Half a dozen years ago, anthropologist Gabriella Coleman set out to study the rise of this global phenomenon just as some of its members were turning to political protest and dangerous disruption. She ended up becoming so closely connected to Anonymous that the tricky story of her inside-outside status as Anon confidante, interpreter, and erstwhile mouthpiece forms one of the themes of this witty and entirely engrossing book. The narrative brims with details unearthed from within a notoriously mysterious subculture, whose semi-legendary tricksters - such as Topiary, tflow, Anachaos, and Sabu - emerge as complex, diverse, politically and culturally sophisticated people. Propelled by years of chats and encounters with a multitude of hackers, Hacker, Hoaxer, Whistleblower, Spy is filled with insights into the meaning of digital activism and little-understood facets of culture in the Internet age. 1.

Yet she cannot leave the Farm, or she will lose the life-changing fee she’ll receive on the delivery of her child. Gripping, provocative, heartbreaking, The Farm pushes to the extremes our thinking on motherhood, money, and merit and raises crucial questions about the trade-offs women will make to fortify their futures and the futures of those they love.Praise for The Farm´´So many factors - gender, race, religion, class - may determine where you come down on the surrogacy debate....
