Orison Swett Marden is considered to be the founder of the modern success movement in America. It is hard to deny this because Marden's first book, Pushing to the Front, was published in 1894 and had a phenomenal circulation. Then in 1897 he founded Success Magazine, which reached the enormous circulation of nearly a half-million. In an effort to bring his thoughts back to life in today's world we decided to edit and rewrite one of his most famous works Be Good to Yourself.
The inside story of the protest that has given birth to America's most important progressive movement in a half century. In a vivid, fast-paced narrative, the key events of the occupation are described: the pepper spraying of young women corralled between plastic fences by the NYPD; the mass arrests on the Brooklyn Bridge; the victory on October 14th when an announced "clean up" of the square was abandoned by a mayor's office fearful of a PR disaster; and the eventual storming of the occupation that brought it to an abrupt end.
When amateur astronomer Jason Blake and his son are out star-gazing one night, thousands of meteors suddenly fill the sky. Some of them fall nearby, but when Jason and Ritchie go to investigate, they are attacked by a werewolf-like creature, and Ritchie is injured. This is a novel of relationships, of apocalyptic adventure, and very personal sacrifice. Moonbane is a poetic novel that works on a number of unexpected levels, running the gamut from taut suspense to outright mayhem.
