This personal narrative is co-authored by two of the best-known names in American UHF television broadcast management: Kathryn “Kitty” Broman Putnam and William Lowell “Bill” Putnam. During the first two decades of Ultra-High Frequency (UHF) television, when the established VHF (Very-High Frequency) stations dominated the TV marketplace, the Putnams built and operated three successful UHF outlets: WWLP-TV in Springfield, Massachusetts; WKEF-TV in Dayton, Ohio; and KSTU-TV in Salt Lake City, Utah. Kitty and Bill recall how they labored for survival during the “dozen lean years” between 1952 and 1964, and the events along their way to leadership in the world of advertiser-supported analog television. Included are several original poems written by Bill, and tantalizing recipes created for Kitty’s long-running local cooking show.

This book traces the origin of the forces and personalities that brought about the Spanish Inquisition and its impact on the larger world. It dwells extensively on the causes and principal figures of the Protestant Reformation and explains how those attitudes came to influence the evolution of modern American politics and bigotry. A careful reading of this narrative explains how political and religious leaders, often being somewhat interchangeable, have been able to devise "enemies" that can be used to convince sufficient of the populace to elect or retain in high office whose who portray themselves as opposed to such "enemies"; ignoring, in so doing, the sage advice of Benjamin Franklin that "those who would sacrifice essential liberties for a little temporary security, deserve neither liberty nor security."

Germany's merchant marine fleet -- the second largest in the world prior to 1914 -- played an unintended but decisive role in that nation's defeat in World War I. There were those ships that went to war for the Kaiser on the high seas, those that stayed at home or otherwise played no significant part, and those that were commandeered (mostly in 1917 and by the United States) and used against Germany. This is a well illustrated history, both practical and romantic, of the association each ship may have had with famous people and events of the war, and of the fates of the ships that comprised that fleet.

A Tale of Two Passes

William Putnam's book chronicles the history of two important routes through the Alps, which are devoted to treasuring the history of Mont Cenis and the Great Saint Bernard passages. Both of these passes were prominently and frequently used by the Romans in establishing and maintaining their empire. It is surmised that Hannibal and his troops found elephant-friendly passages through the Mont Cenis corridor. Both passes were adorned with hospices/shelters near their crest and both now have been bypassed by modern tunnels. Despite these similarities, their historic prominence derives from distinctly different events and factors. "There is no passage of the Alps that affords to the traveler greater pleasure, either in the enjoyment or the recollection of his journey to Italy, than that by the Great Saint Bernard. Beside the wildness of this alpine pass, and the beauty of the valley of Aosta, through which the road (down) to Turin continues after it leaves the mountains, the kind reception that he experiences from the religious community at the hospice on the summit of the Saint Bernard, is remembered as long as he can be grateful for the devotion that induces these excellent men to offer the traveler their welcome, and spread for him their hospitality in the wilderness." Herein lies the histories of these passes and stories of many travelers among the Alps -- told as much as possible in their own words.

Inspiriert von realen Fällen zeigt »Kill« im fesselnden, halb dokumentarischen Stil den (fiktiven) Serienmörder Thomas Bishop in seiner Entstehung, in seinen Taten, aber auch in seinem Alltagsleben, und beleuchtet die Auswirkungen, die seine grausamen Morde auf die Gesellschaft und ihre Moral haben. »Kill« von Shane Stevens gilt als der erste Roman, der einen Serienmörder in den Mittelpunkt stellt, und ist damit das Vorbild für Thomas Harris und seine Hannibal Lecter-Romane.
