As the tender buds emerge from their long winter sleep, so too do the methanol-fuelled speedway bikes emerge from their workshops in preparation for another season of ear-caressing and nostril-bewitching racing excitement. Also emerging from his writer's cocoon, albeit less tenderly and with less noise, is Jeff Scott, speedway author and fan ordinaire. With his keen ear, sympathetic eye, Tupperware container, and match programme, Scott continues to document the sporting phenomena of speedway with all its idiosyncratic passion and players: the brave riders, enduring fans, obsessive collectors, sharp-witted banterers, Super7even beauties, devoted race-night staff and, of course, the ever-optimistic entrepreneurs and managers whose investment ensures the show stays on track at Britain's temples of shale. Together these supplicants, disciples and participants resist to their utmost the levelling winds of economic and cultural change to celebrate and preserve the sport and community that they love. As always, Scott prefaces his pilgrimages to the holy places of speedway by publishing another volume in his continuing series of speedway books. This year's entry is Bouquet of Shale, which joins his other critically acclaimed works on British Speedway: Showered in Shale; When Eagles Dared; Shifting Shale; Shale Britannia; Concrete for Breakfast (a 2009 British Sports Book of the Year nominee); Quantum of Shale and Shale Trek. Together they constitute a body of work unique in its dedication to a sport as well as the social and cultural scope of its subject.

The Searing Portrayal Of War That Has Stunned And Galvanized Generations Of Readers An immediate bestseller upon its original publication in 1939, Dalton Trumbo’s stark, profoundly troubling masterpiece about the horrors of World War I brilliantly crystallized the uncompromising brutality of war and became the most influential protest novel of the Vietnam era. Johnny Got His Gun is an undisputed classic of antiwar literature that’s as timely as ever. “A terrifying book, of an extraordinary emotional intensity.”--The Washington Post "Powerful. . . an eye-opener." --Michael Moore "Mr. Trumbo sets this story down almost without pause or punctuation and with a fury amounting to eloquence."--The New York Times "A book that can never be forgotten by anyone who reads it."--Saturday Review
