Nothing explains America better than college football. This illustrated ebook lays out the history of big-money amateurism via fiction and non-fiction at the same damn time. The Sinful Seven is about control and capital, but also about bandidas, explosions, zombies, mystical technology, haunted Western mythology, bizarre cuisine, college football internet jokes, and a real bastard or two. It's like this: There is a train. We're gonna try and rob it. Along the way, we'll learn about NC State's stolen Orange Bowl, all the moments that could've resulted in something besides the NCAA, and SMU ponying up 'til the end. Who are we? Spencer, Richard, Jason, and Alex have written about college football for years, while Tyson has made a lot of cool art about pretty much every sport. The Sinful Seven is good, actually "Come for Spencer with an Old West yarn that’s actually about the NCAA’s Sanity Code. Stay for Richard on Jack Trice." -- Andy Staples "You should do yourself a favor and check this out." -- Mike Golic Jr. "Oh you haven't bought The Sinful Seven yet? Do you even like college football?" -- Michael Felder "Extremely good and wild." -- Jordan Ginsberg "I don’t know when I last anticipated a book this much or enjoyed one on this level. College football with cowboys, zombies, witches, and a sci-fi allegory for athlete transfers and schools changing conferences. Seldom do I read something so relevant to society that doesn’t depress me. There’s a lot to love about this project." -- Kevin Fox "It's good. Buy it." -- Charles McDonald "I laughed a lot. I learned a lot, too. The way it weaves real-life history, clever symbolism, and straight-up fiction together is beyond impressive. It’s weird. It’s chaotic. It’s impactful." -- Justin Ferguson "Purchase The Sinful Seven today or your favorite team will lose to their rival every game for the next decade." -- Harry Lyles Jr. "Amazing! Just a fun read." -- Caroline Darney "There exists space for comedy in tragedy. The one only heightens the effect of the other, and it’s this tension that brings The Sinful Seven home." -- Jim Lohmar "You all should purchase The Sinful Seven." -- David Hale "It’s good. You need it." -- Sarah Kelly "It's the fever dream college football book we all need right now." -- Ace Anbender "Official review: it is good." -- Alex McDaniel "A fun and easy read as both a college football history and an Old West fiction novel." -- Chris Vannini "Ever get just punched in the mouth by how awesome a book is?" -- The Tailgate Society "It rules." -- Jon Bois Also, Ira Glass and Paul Finebaum have said the name of this book out loud.

Though science fiction is often thought of as a Western phenomenon, the genre has long had a foothold in countries as diverse as India and Mexico. These fourteen critical essays examine both the role of science fiction in the third world and the role of the third world in science fiction. Topics covered include science fiction in Bengal, the genre’s portrayal of Native Americans, Mexican cyberpunk fiction, and the undercurrents of colonialism and Empire in traditional science fiction. The intersections of science fiction theory and postcolonial theory are explored, as well as science fiction’s contesting of imperialism and how the third world uses the genre to recreate itself.

This book traces the roots of Arabic science fiction through classical and medieval Arabic literature, undertaking close readings of formative texts of Arabic science fiction via a critical framework developed from the work of Western critics of Western science fiction, Arab critics of Arabic science fiction and postcolonial theorists of literature. Ian Campbell investigates the ways in which Arabic science fiction engages with a theoretical concept he terms “double estrangement” wherein these texts provide social or political criticism through estrangement and simultaneously critique their own societies’ inability or refusal to engage in the sort of modernization that would lead the Arab world back to leadership in science and technology.

This book presents a comprehensive and systematic study of the narrative history and narrative methods of Chinese and Western popular fiction from the perspectives of narratology, comparative literature, and art and literature studies by adopting the methodology of parallel comparison. The book is a pioneering work that systematically investigates the similarities and differences between Chinese and Western popular fiction, and traces the root causes leading to the differences. By means of narrative comparison, it explores the conceptual and spiritual correlations and differences between Chinese and Western popular fiction and, by relating them to the root causes of cultural spirit, allows us to gain an insight into the cultural heritage of different nations. The book is structured in line with a cause-and-effect logical sequence and moves from the macroscopic to the microscopic, from history to reality, and from theory to practice. The integration of macro-level theoretical studies and micro-level case studies is both novel and effective. This book was awarded Second Prize at the Sixth Outstanding Achievement Awards in Scientific Research for Chinese Institutions of Higher Learning (Humanities & Social Sciences, 2013).
