3 (edited by) Littlefield, Bill; Johnson, Richard A. Fall Classics: the Best Writing about the World Series' First 100 Years
1400048990 / 9781400048991; Long before there was the Super Bowl, the NBA Championship, the Final Four, or the World Cup, there was the World Series. For a century, the World Series has captured the nation's imagination. The drama has included Willie May's catch, and Reggie Jackson's home runs, and the gratifying day when Walter Johnson finally won. But the plot lines have also featured the audacious fixing of the 1919 Series and the unlikely heroics of various journeymen never much heard of before the span of a few brilliant autumn days, and never much heard of since. There has been one perfect game. The games and the memories go on. For every fan whose heart yearns for a bleacher seat, a ballpark frank, and a slice of October Americana, Fall Classics is a treasure. Includes credits and contributors. Makes a great gift for your avid baseball fan. ; 289 pages

8 Carrau, Bob Monsters and Aliens from George Lucas
0810981394 / 9780810981393; Some of the most bizarre monsters and aliens ever seen populate the films of George Lucas, creator of the Star Wars trilogy, and they are as important to the enormous success of these movies as are the heroic characters and suspenseful plots. Here are portraits and descriptions of a never-before-assembled group of Lucas' eeriest strangelings and other-worldly beings. The text is an amusing compendium of interesting personal data in the form of diary entries, recipes, resumes, want ads, and weight-training routines. Picked up by the most modern and intrusive of means - fiberoptic taps, tubular refuse scrounging, interviews (at great risk to the interviewer's life) , mind readings, and even sky fishing - these private revelations from out-of-bound psyches make for fascinating reading - a space-traveling voyeur's delight. Unpaginated, 50 illustrations, 25 in full color. The binding is pictorial with a small bump to the top. ; 4to - over 9¾ - 12" tall

10 Costello, Peter The Magic Zoo: the Natural History of Fabulous Animals
0312504217 / 9780312504212; Fabulous birds and animals have fascinated and intrigued from the earliest times: The Greeks had their centaurs and satyrs, the Chinese their Kai-Lin and Feng Wang, and today we have Bigfoot and the Loch Ness Monster. But is there any truth to these myths? Do real animals or real animal behavior lurk behind the legends? Peter Costello examines a wide arrange of strange creatures in his attempt to uncover the truth. Moving from dragons to griffons and beyond, he skillfully combines mythology and zoology in his study of animals in his engrossing and highly readable style. Included in this delightful book are accounts and illustrations not only of such well-known creatures as the minotaur and the phoenix, but also such lesser-known beasts as the Vegetable Lamb, the Giant Ants of India (I sure believe those! ) , and the Barnacle Goose. The Magic Zoo does for the community of mermaids and unicorns what recent best sellers have done for gnomes, faeries, and witches. Includes an extensive bibliography and index. On the page sides are three tiny rust-like marks. ; 8vo - over 7¾ - 9¾" tall
