Der Einstieg in ein rasantes ›old school‹-Science-Fiction-Abenteuer des britischen Autors Mike Brooks, vollgepackt mit Action und Dialogen voller Wortwitz - ein Muss für Fans von »Expanse« und »Firefly! Eigentlich hat Ichabod Drift, Captain des Raumfrachters Keiko, kein Problem mit Aufträgen, die sich am Rande der Legalität bewegen – oder auch darüber hinausgehen. Mit seiner eingeschworenen Crew aus Schmugglern, Glücksrittern und Abenteurern hat er schon so manchen Coup gelandet. Dass sein neuer Auftraggeber ihn erpresst, schmeckt Ichabod allerdings gar nicht. Und dass er nicht das Geringste über die Ladung wissen darf, die er auf die Erde schmuggeln soll, riecht nach Ärger. Wie groß die Gefahr allerdings nicht nur für das Schiff, sondern für den ganzen blauen Planeten wird, ahnt allerdings noch niemand auf der Keiko ... ... »Fans von abgefahrenen Weltraum-Abenteuern werden dieses Buch lieben!« Publishers Weekly

#1 New York Times bestseller Who is the greatest dunker of all time? Which version of the Michael Jordan was the best Michael Jordan? What is allowed and absolutely not allowed in a game of pickup basketball? Basketball (and Other Things) presents readers with a whole new set of pivotal and ridiculous fan disputes from basketball history, providing arguments and answers, explained with the wit and wisdom that is unique to Shea Serrano. Serrano breaks down debates that NBA fans didn’t even know they needed, from the classic (How many years during his career was Kobe Bryant actually the best player in the league?) to the fantastical (If you could assign different values to different shots throughout basketball history, what would they be and why?). With incredible art from Arturo Torres, this book is a must-have for anyone who has ever stayed up late into the night debating basketball’s greatest moments, what-ifs, stories, and legends, or for those who are discovering the mythology of basketball for the first time.

A timely reflection on identity in America, exploring the intersection of fatherhood, race, and hip-hop culture. Just as his music career was taking off, Juan Vidal received life-changing news: he’d soon be a father. Throughout his life, neglectful men were the rule—his own dad struggled with drug addiction and infidelity—a cycle that, inevitably, wrought Vidal with insecurity. At age twenty-six, with only a bare grip on life, what lessons could he possibly offer a kid? Determined to alter the course for his child, Vidal did what he’d always done when confronted with life’s challenges. He turned to the counterculture. “The counterculture took the place of a father I could no longer touch. Since things like school and church couldn’t get through to me, I was being trained up outside of organized institutions. What I gravitated to were these movements that not only felt redeeming, but also freeing. They were almost everything I needed.” In Rap Dad, the musician-turned-journalist takes a thoughtful and inventive approach to exploring identity and examining how we view fatherhood in a modern context. To root out the source of his fears around parenting, Vidal revisits the flash points of his juvenescence, a feat that transports him, a first-generation American born to Colombian parents, back to the drug-fueled streets of 1980s–90s Miami. It’s during those pivotal years that he’s drawn to skateboarding, graffiti, and the music of rebellion: hip-hop. As he looks to the past for answers, he infuses his personal story with rap lyrics and interviews with some of pop culture’s most compelling voices—plenty of whom have proven to be some of society’s best, albeit nontraditional, dads. Along the way, Vidal confronts the unfair stereotypes that taint urban men—especially Black and Latino men—in today’s society. An illuminating journey of discovery, Rap Dad is a striking portrait of modern fatherhood that is as much political as it is entertaining, personal as it is representative, and challenging as it is revealing.
