Who is the Flash? Following the events of INFINITE CRISIS, Wally West is no longer the Fastest Man Alive. Instead, former Kid Flash Bart Allen has taken up the mantle, but why is Bart suddenly much older than he was before?
For Kip Barrett, a secret commission from her boss’s boss’s boss, CEO Tamara Sterling, shows that the respect she’s earned for her integrity and intelligence is justified. All she has to do is what she’s done successfully before: Follow the money, find the high-tech thief, and document it so the culprit gets the justice they deserve. This case is different, though. This time the embezzler is someone inside Sterling Proof, the financial industry’s most-trusted investigation firm. That one of their own could turn out to be a thief is bad enough, but that it wasn’t detected and dealt with immediately is even worse. The scandal would destroy Sterling Proof’s unparalleled and unblemished reputation for ethical conduct and security.
Kip has to find out how and who, and no one but Tamara can know what she’s doing. As Kip gets closer to discovering the embezzler, her clandestine meetings with Tamara grow more frequent. To her consternation, her admiration for Sterling’s work is compounded by an undeniable physical chemistry. But there’s a rule about fraternization, and Sterling investigators never break the rules. She needs to wrap up her findings before anyone—including her emerging prime suspect Tamara Sterling—realizes Kip is not above temptation. This sizzling romance is the latest page-turning story from Golden Crown and Lambda Literary award-winning author Karin Kallmaker.
One of the bright lights of the recent Bikolnon writing renaissance, Kristian Cordero presents in his poetry intimate sketches and portraits of the people and land of his birth. He does this with a confident hand, cool detachment and, very often, with tongue-in-cheek humor.
Fully in command of his material, Cordero's poetic diction deftly fuses real and surreal elements to elicit from the thoughtful reader not only high amusement but also deep understanding.--Luis Cabalquinto
En 1924 Horacio Quiroga publica El desierto, colección con tres partes claramente diferenciadas. En la primera se recogen dos relatos de Misiones, a orillas del Paraná, un escenario tan querido por el autor. En la segunda, cuatro cuentos urbano-románticos, aunque dos de ellos con giros fantásticos que los diferencian de lo convencional. La última parte reúne cinco apólogos o fábulas, que exaltan el poder transformador de los sentimientos, sintetizando así el tema principal de la obra quiroguiana: el amor humaniza y el odio embrutece.
