From scouring flea markets and eBay to maxing out their credit cards, record collectors will do just about anything to score a long-sought-after album. In Vinyl Freak, music writer, curator, and collector John Corbett burrows deep inside the record fiend’s mind, documenting and reflecting on his decades-long love affair with vinyl. Discussing more than 200 rare and out-of-print LPs, Vinyl Freak is composed in part of Corbett's long-running DownBeat magazine column of the same name, which was devoted to records that had not appeared on CD. In other essays where he combines memoir and criticism, Corbett considers the current vinyl boom, explains why vinyl is his preferred medium, profiles collector subcultures, and recounts his adventures assembling the Alton Abraham Sun Ra Archive, an event so all-consuming that he claims it cured his record-collecting addiction. Perfect for vinyl newbies and veteran crate diggers alike, Vinyl Freak plumbs the motivations that drive Corbett and collectors everywhere.

** A STEAMY, romantic suspense (STANDALONE) novel by NEW YORK TIMES and USA TODAY Bestselling author, L.P. Dover. If you love strong and sexy MMA fighters then this book is definitely for you.** Fighting for someone’s heart is more challenging than fighting for a title. For a time, many years ago, love had grown, love was made, and in the end … love was lost. The decision to leave had been the worst mistake Shelby Dawson could have ever made. However, at the time—ten years ago—she felt her secret needed to stay hidden, even if it broke her heart and the heart of the man she loved. Back then, he was all hers and she was all his, but now things have changed and he isn’t the same guy she knew. He happens to be the well-known MMA Heavyweight champion and famous bad boy, Matt ‘The Destroyer’ Reynolds, who once before struggled to help his family pay the bills. Now, he has money flowing with each undefeated win and an insurmountable number of women filling his bed. Everything is perfect for the illustrious fighter, until one day it all changes. In walks the girl from his past, the same girl who promised to stick by him but left and never looked back. Their second chance to make things right will not come easy, for when one mistake is made an unwelcome consequence soon follows. Someone out there wants to rip them apart and they won’t stop until Matt and Shelby pay the ultimate price … their love.

»Seit ich diesen Roman als Teenager zum ersten Mal las, begleitet mich die Atmosphäre der Sehnsucht nach vergangenen Zeiten und kindlicher Unschuld.« Ian McEwan Einer der schönsten englischen Romane des 20. Jahrhunderts Erstmals in adäquater Übersetzung »Aufwühlend und magisch.« The Independent Die Vergangenheit ist ein fremdes Land. Leo Colston ist ein Mann fortgeschrittenen Alters, als er in einem alten roten Karton auf sein Jugendtagebuch stößt. »Tagebuch für das Jahr 1900« steht darauf, und dieser Fund lässt Leo Colston in Gedanken zurückgehen in jenen Sommer 1900, als er dreizehn war: Während der Ferien auf dem Landgut der Eltern seines Schulfreundes wird Leo zum Überbringer heimlicher Liebesbotschaften zwischen Ted, dem Pächter, und Marian, der schönen Tochter des Schlossherrn, deren Verlobung mit Lord Trimingham kurz bevorsteht. Gegen seinen Willen zieht es Leo immer tiefer in den Strudel des gefährlichen Spiels von Verlangen und Verrat, von versprochener und verbotener Liebe, und schließlich steht er vor der ersten großen Gewissensentscheidung seines jungen Lebens. Ein Sommer in Brandham Hall ist ein raffiniert konstruierter Roman über die Strapazen des Erwachsenwerdens und die Gefühlswirren der Jugend, eine fein beobachtete Gesellschaftsanalyse und eine wunderbare Liebesgeschichte. »Ein vollkommenes Kunstwerk.« The Times »Ein Meisterwerk über verlorene Unschuld, Scheinheiligkeit und britische Wesensart.« The Guardian »Schon beim ersten Lesen ist Ein Sommer in Brandham Hall die gekonnt erzählte Geschichte eines heranwachsenden Jungen und dessen verlorener Unschuld. Doch das Wissen um eine immer näher rückende, unaufhaltbare Tragödie macht sie beim zweiten Lesen noch ergreifender.« Express »Wie sein literarischer Vorfahr Henry James spürt Hartley mit verblüffender Genauigkeit den Feinheiten moralischer Sittlichkeit nach und richtet sein Augenmerk dabei auf Figuren wie Leo, den Erzähler in Ein Sommer in Brandham Hall, der gefangen ist in einem Konflikt zwischen seinen Trieben und den gesellschaftlichen Konventionen, denen er sich zu beugen hat.« The New York Times
