This first collection of 112 passionate, raw, thought-provoking poems is just a small selection from the library that the brilliant, brutally honest and prolific poet James Barrett Rodehaver has written in his lifetime. His words illustrate absolute fearlessness in self-discovery, his journey to find faith, and his relentless championing of hope for a better country and world. His poems span a wide chronology of growth and self-evolution, of despair and victory, of his hatred for injustice and his love of artists and poets. As a member of the LGBT community, he makes sure his readers know where he stands on equality and love. As a disabled man with a rare progressive bone disease, he uniquely understands the pain we all go through on our journey, and that poetry is how all of us can turn pain into triumph. He chronicles his sufferings, his hopeful outlook, and his questions to God about why he is the way he is, with poetry that renders the soul bare. He is a survivor of not only a disability and near-death, but of family crisis and the foster care system. Yet despite all of this, his world view, though bitter at times, still remains that of a dreamer. He presents to us many faces, and yet, all of them are one: the revolutionary, the fighter, the witty and hilarious dirty-minded poet, and the sensual lover. His poetry shows us his true soul, and this impressive collection of his lets us in on a man of kindness, integrity and conscience. It is as much yours as it is his, and he has put his full heart and soul into every page. Read it, share it, cherish it, and know that you, as well, are strangely wonderful!

It’s 1828, and life is good for the pirates of Madagascar… Their Captain is the Hungarian Count Tomaj Balashazy, a refugee from the U.S. Navy. Count Balashazy rules the coast from his tropical mansion Barataria, a fortress built against enemies he’s made cruising the Indian Ocean. Bitterly cruel, Tomaj feels guilt at the loss of his family in New Orleans, and he wallows in clouds of opium. When the American naturalist Dagny Ravenhurst falls into Tomaj’s lagoon, it’s the beginning of the end of arcadian bliss on the island. French industrialist Paul Boneaux commands his empire of factories in the central highlands. As the special pet of the psychotic Malagasy Queen Ranavalona, Boneaux enjoys a monopoly over all manufacturing, commerce, and his mistress. Beholden to Boneaux, Dagny and her two brothers need his patronage to survive. Zeke, fiercely protective of Dagny, yearns to start a legitimate trading post. The gentle and guileless geologist Salvatore believes he can make their fortune mining, and falls for the exotic charms of the Pirate Count. Quartermaster Youx struggles to earn the same love Balashazy had for his first quartermaster, killed in battle with Chinese pirates. And sinister ship’s cook Slushy reveals why he was run out of his job as a bootblack boy in New York. Dagny’s joyless scientific heart melts for the poetic nature of the Count, who has promised to deliver her the rare aye-aye monkey. The King dies—or is he murdered?—and the Queen gives free rein to her merciless anti-European impulses. The island runs with blood, and only one world can emerge triumphant. In Madagascar’s utopian paradise, all is… Strangely Wonderful

A wildly entertaining and surprisingly educational dive into art history as you've never seen it before, from the host of the beloved ArtCurious podcast We're all familiar with the works of Claude Monet, thanks in no small part to the ubiquitous reproductions of his water lilies on umbrellas, handbags, scarves, and dorm-room posters. But did you also know that Monet and his cohort were trailblazing rebels whose works were originally deemed unbelievably ugly and vulgar? And while you probably know the tale of Vincent van Gogh's suicide, you may not be aware that there's pretty compelling evidence that the artist didn't die by his own hand but was accidentally killed--or even murdered. Or how about the fact that one of Andy Warhol's most enduring legacies involves Caroline Kennedy's moldy birthday cake and a collection of toenail clippings? ArtCurious is a colorful look at the world of art history, revealing some of the strangest, funniest, and most fascinating stories behind the world's great artists and masterpieces. Through these and other incredible, weird, and wonderful tales, ArtCurious presents an engaging look at why art history is, and continues to be, a riveting and relevant world to explore.

Have you ever walked through your neighborhood, taken a look at a weird house, and thought “Who lives there?” or, “What in the world does it look like inside?” We’ve all been curious, which is why the founders of the Weird Homes Tourâ„¢ began their strange and wonderful journey. Three years later, they’ve opened the doors and unlatched the windows of dozens of Texas’s strangest homes for thousands of onlookers. Why? To show that design really has no boundaries. And that we would rather neighbors be strange than be strangers. Like many other communities around the world, Austin can be fun, irreverent, outside the box, innovative, dynamic, proud, strange, and so much more. You just need to know where to look. This gorgeous book features the one-of-a-kind Austin homes that started it all for the Weird Homes Tour. Page by page, we proudly present these homes and the weird people who live in them, many of whom designed and built their awe-inspiring dwellings by hand. From grand, historic haunts to treehouses and dumpster dwellings, you’re guaranteed to find something that will inspire design changes in your own home.
