This is a story from a bygone age, recalling the most successful flying-boat airliner ever built. Designed to a specification for Imperial Airways, then Britain's national airline, it carried passengers, and more importantly, mail throughout the British Empire. Short Brothers built forty-two Empire Flying-boats at their factory in Rochester during the late 1930s. When compared with other aircraft of that era, they were extremely large and luxurious and even by today's standards passengers were handsomely catered to with ample space to exercise or relax during the many airborne hours. Imperial Airways were extending their route network to the furthest outposts of the British Empire. It was a steep learning curve for all concerned with those early pioneering flights when long-distance flights were measured in days rather than hours. This is the tale of the realization of a dream and the efforts of those who made it possible. Alas the world moved on, at a pace accelerated by the Second World War, and the flying-boat was forced from the air routes. No more will adventurous Empires grace the skies.

On September 28, 2000, former Indiana State Trooper David Camm made a frantic call to his former colleagues in the state troopers office: He'd just walked into his garage, and found lying on the floor the bodies of his 35-year-old wife, Kim, and their two children, Brad and Jill, ages 7 and 5. This was the kind of crime that could tear the heart out of a community. The Camm's lived the American Dream. They had what seemed like a loving marriage, a nice little house with a white picket fence, and two adorable children. To top it all off, David Camm was a pillar of the community who had dedicated his career to the enforcement of the law and the sanctity of human life. Then, this happened. Three days later, it got worse when police arrested David Camm for the triple murder. Soon, new stories started emerging: stories about mistresses and violent bursts of temper. And as the ugly truth about the Camms' marriage got uglier and the evidence against David started piling up, two families-and the community at large-took positions at opposite sides of a yawning and bitter divide. Was David Camm a dedicated, conscientious public servant-the victim of unspeakable tragedy, railroaded by an unfair system? Or was he a cold-hearted murderer who earned his three murder convictions and every one of the 195 years behind bars to which he was sentenced? Investigative journalist John Glatt finds out in this gripping new book.

Stanley Hooker joined the Bristol Aeroplane Company in 1949 and tugged a rather reluctant company into the jet age, determined to give real competition to Rolls-Royce. So successful was he that in 1966 Rolls-Royce decided the best thing to do was to spend ?63.6 million and buy its rival. By this time there was scarcely a single modern British aero-engine for which Hooker had not been responsible.

In voices that are hip and raunchy, bemused and sardonic, award-winning writer Reginald McKnight conjures a chorus of narratives that reveal the African-American middle class to be a crucible of human experience. Outrageously inventive, disarmingly comic, and urgently disturbing, this collection brings a disparate cast of characters face to face with fault lines of identity and the limbo of living between cultures. The Kind of Light That Shines on Texas was first published by Little, Brown and Company in 1992. This edition is published in cooperation with the Living Writers course at Colgate University.
