Book Summary:

 Toys—those celebrated childhood cohorts and lead actors in children’s imaginative play—have a fantastic history of heroism in fiction. From teddy bears that guard sleeping babies to plastic soldiers and cowboys who lay siege to wooden block castles, toys are often the heroes of the stories children inspire authors to tell. In this collection of new essays, scholars from a great range of disciplines examine fictional toys as protectors of the children they love, as heroes of their own stories, and as champions for the greater good in the writings of A.A. Milne, Hans Christian Andersen, William Joyce, John Lasseter and many others.

Book Summary:

This book is a collection of short stories. They stand by themselves, individually, and seek to enable a scintillating excursion beyond the common four walls of life. I wish to seduce the imagination with a subtle convergence of storytelling, quietly seeping into questions of considerable moment. Some of the stories are just plain scary. Kenneth G. Gary, Author Wow! This was one of the most complex ghost stories Ive ever read. Nothing suddenly jumping out, and yelling, BOO!. Instead a tale that works on the mind, much like the movie Chinatown. Clues are introduced, taken away, then reintroduced for a conclusion that is more mental than paranormal, showing the horrors that can be found in the human mind. And like Chinatown, this story will need to be read two or three times to gather all the nuances. A true masterpiece of haunting. Not scaryterrifying. Lester K. Kloss Jr., television producer. From the blog onwww.themoonlitroad.com. Haunting and Spiritual Stories is a masterpiece, a stellar collection of superb storytelling and an instant classic. Kenneth Gary and his sister Hedy Gray, do Edgar Allen Poe and Rod Serling very, very proud. Their phenomenal stories will transfix and transport you to heights and depths of emotion and imagination never before experienced. Extraordinarily, exquisitely and eloquently crafted, Haunting Spiritual Stories is a veritable, vivid artistic feast of and for the mind, body, spirit and soul. Quite simply I have not been able to put down Haunting and Spiritual Stories and neither will you! Gary Hines, music director/producer, Grammy award-winning Sounds of Blackness Where Once upon a Time is far more than just a story! Bill Berry Jr., publisher /CEO aaduna Inc.

Book Summary:

Get past the myths of testing in agile environments - and implement agile testing the RIGHT way. * * For everyone concerned with agile testing: developers, testers, managers, customers, and other stakeholders. * Covers every key issue: Values, practices, organizational and cultural challenges, collaboration, metrics, infrastructure, documentation, tools, and more. * By two of the world's most experienced agile testing practitioners and consultants. Software testing has always been crucial, but it may be even more crucial in agile environments that rely heavily on repeated iterations of software capable of passing tests. There are, however, many myths associated with testing in agile environments. This book helps agile team members overcome those myths -- and implement testing that truly maximizes software quality and value. Long-time agile testers Lisa Crispin and Janet Gregory offer powerful insights for three large, diverse groups of readers: experienced testers who are new to agile; members of newly-created agile teams who aren't sure how to perform testing or work with testers; and test/QA managers whose development teams are implementing agile. Readers will learn specific agile testing practices and techniques that can mean the difference between success and failure; discover how to transition 'traditional' test teams to agile; and learn how to integrate testers smoothly into agile teams. Drawing on extensive experience, the authors illuminate topics ranging from culture to test planning to automated tools. They cover every form of testing: business-facing tests, technology-facing tests, exploratory tests, context-driven and scenario tests, load, stability, and endurance tests, and more. Using this book's techniques, readers can improve the effectiveness and reduce the risks of any agile project or initiative.

Book Summary:

Peter Bayer was seventy-three. He’d taught at the school just up the road for most of his life and, when the wall came down, saw no reason to move. Nobody could say life had been easy, and when it was built, he’d lost contact with many friends, but he’d learnt to enjoy life as best he could and had had the good fortune of a happy marriage to Elsa. It’s 2006. Peter Bayer and his wife, Elsa, live on the East side of Berlin, as they’ve always done, even when that wasn’t an attractive proposition. What limits Peter’s freedom nowadays isn’t a concrete wall but often feels like one. Elsa has dementia and barely recognises him, so his life is not only hard work, but it’s lonely. What makes it lonelier is that his wife’s illness has given her a distorted view of the past and one that would horrify the woman he married. When Helen, a recently widowed English woman, rents the flat Peter owns nearby, he experiences the kinds of conversations that used to be normal for him, which makes his current reality all the more painful. Helen’s come to Berlin to find out more about her husband’s past in the city and learns things from their German friends that she was unaware of when he was alive. During her struggle to come to terms with her present life, Helen sees that the terrible demands on Peter’s life are almost impossible to endure. Other stories in the book show the toll of war, as fear is passed from one generation to another and we see how the power of secrecy never disappears. They also reveal how gratitude can take various forms and how intergenerational friendships really are all they’re cracked up to be. The Writing on the Wall and Other Stories is a collection of tales, spanning the 1980s to the present day, that will appeal to fans of Anne Tyler, Alan Bennett and Alice Munro, whom Penny Edwards takes inspiration from.

Book Summary:

This is a book of family stories, of pioneers who immigrated to central Illinois from a variety of locations in Germany. They dared to leave the Old World and seek their fortune in the New World and strove every day of their lives to improve the quality of life for their children and descendants. They left a part of Europe, Germany, comprising a radius of about a hundred miles, and settled in America, in central Illinois, within a radius of about twenty-five miles. Between 1845 and 1869, some came as families, some as individuals , but they all chose to inhabit the villages of Danvers, Minier, Petersburg, or the surrounding farmland. Of the pioneer generation, there were sixteen people whose stories are like little jewels embroidered onto the warp and woof of the historical tapestry of their time. The second-, third-, and fourth-generation folks are likewise described within the context of their times and always leading in a straight line of lineage to Mary and Bill Oehler, the authors parents. Every life has a story. It has been a pleasure to delineate these thirty-one lives.
