Killing Your Boss
Author : James DeSantis

Killing Your Boss was a great horror serial killer read. The author, James DeSantis did a marvelous job with this short story that had many twists in it. I like how the author describes each character on their own page. James was very descriptive with his writing to the point…

1959: The Year Everything Changed

Advance Praise for Fred Kaplan’s 1959: The Year Everything Changed 

  “An engrossing story about not just where the ‘60s came from but the birth of the future. Kaplan does a masterful job of weaving together the strands - in politics, society, culture, and science — that have brought us to the postmodern age.”
  —Jonathan Alter, author of The Defining Moment: FDR’s Hundred Days and the Triumph of Hope 

  “It turns out there’s only one degree of separation between Miles Davis, the brilliant jazz innovator, and Herman Kahn, the Strangelovian nuclear-war theorist—and his name is Fred Kaplan. No one else could throw this fabulous cocktail party of a popular history, teeming with defiant hipsters, visionary inventors, artistic rulebreakers, and troublemakers of all kinds.”
  —Hendrik Hertzberg, Senior Editor, the New Yorker 

  “1959 is a riveting account of the year our modern age began. Everything did change, and you’ll be amazed by how much was going on, and how much it has affected the way you live your life now.”
  —Kevin Baker, author of Strivers Row, Dreamland, and Paradise Alley 

  “Take a ride on the New Frontier with Fred Kaplan, your insightful (and hip) guide to the space race, thermonuclear war, the civil rights movement, the ‘sick comics,’ the Beats, and the beginnings of the Vietnam War, all to a soundtrack by Dave Brubeck, Ornette Coleman, Miles, and Motown.”
  —Donald [**]en, cofounder, Steely Dan
