Lawrence Block's WRITING THE NOVEL remained continuously in print since 1978. But the world of publishing has changed, and Block has expanded and updated his original text, bringing each chapter up to date and adding new material on ebooks, self-publishing, and what perils and opportunities await the new novelist-and the veteran as well. Unlike many advice-givers, Block doesn't tell you what book to write, or the one and only way to write it. He holds that every novel is different, and so is every novelist; his aim is to give you the tools to enable you to find your own way. Here are some chapters: #1-Why Write a Novel? #2-Deciding Which Novel to Write. #3-Read...Study...Analyze. #4-Developing Plot Ideas. #5-Developing Characters. #6-Outlining. #7-Using What You Know...and What You Don't Know. #8-Getting Started. #9-Getting It Written. #10-Snag, Dead Ends, and False Trails. #11-Matters of Style. #12-Length. #13-Rewriting. #14-Getting Published. #15-The Case for Self-Publishing. #16-The Case Against Self-publishing. #17-How to Be Your Own Publisher. #18-Doing It Again. #19-Now It's Up to You! WRITING THE NOVEL FROM PLOT TO PRINT TO PIXEL is half again as long as the original version, and Lawrence Block has managed to retain all the 1978 text while bringing it up to date. As he would be the first to tell you, you don't need this book-or any other-to succeed as a novelist. But thousands of writers have found it helpful. And most of us feel we can use all the help we can get.

An ancient ritual. A stolen child. A mysterious New England village. Who holds the key to the dark secret of Stonehaven? What unspeakable creature is trapped within one of its summer mansions? From New York Times bestselling author Douglas Clegg comes a riveting, edge-of-your-seat supernatural thriller. "Clegg's stories can chill the spine so effectively that the reader should keep paramedics on standby."-- Dean Koontz, NY Times bestselling author of The Husband, Odd Thomas, Velocity and many others. *"Combining both the quiet horror of a Charles Grant with the all-out spectacles of a Stephen King, Clegg's storytelling has never been better. The Halloween Man is a brilliant novel, up there with the best of Straub, King, and Koontz, and one of the most original tales of terror to come along in quite a while." -- Edward Lee, bestselling horror novelist. "The Halloween Man is one of the best horror novels that I’ve read in years…I had never read anything by Clegg before reading this novel, but now I’m going to go out and get the rest of his books. If you’ve never heard of Clegg either, or are a fan of horror fiction, get this book right now." - Pixel Planet "Halloween Man is a stunning horror novel, written with a degree of conviction that is rare these days." --Fiona Webster "Clegg gets high marks on the terror scale..."(The Daily News (New York)) -- "Douglas Clegg is one of horror's most captivating voices..." -- BookLovers "Every bit as good as the best works of Stephen King, Peter Straub, or Dan Simmons..." -- Hellnotes: The Newsletter for the Horror Professional "Packed with vivid imagery; a broadly-scoped but fast-paced plot; powerful, evocative writing; superb characterizations; and facile intelligence…Douglas Clegg has given horror lovers the best Halloween gift possible -- an entertaining spinetingler written with unique style..." -- DarkEcho "Douglas Clegg has become the new star in horror fiction.." - Peter Straub, author of Ghost Story and, with Stephen King, The Talisman.

This essay can be considered a new chapter in my book Digital McLuhan, published in 1999, or before the advent of Twitter, Facebook, YouTube, and the social media of our age. Marshall McLuhan's ideas, including hot and cool, the medium is the message, and the tetrad, are applied to help us understand selfies, tweeting, fake news, iconic television shows such as The Sorpanos and Mad Men, the advent of streaming television and binge watching, the Arab Spring, the U.S. Presidential election of 2016, and the Kindle revolution itself.

Digital Image Processing for Medical Applications

Digital Image Processing for Medical Applications

This text takes its motivation from medical applications and uses real medical images and situations to illustrate and clarify concepts and to build intuition, insight and understanding.

Image processing is a hands-on discipline, and the best way to learn is by doing. This text takes its motivation from medical applications and uses real medical images and situations to illustrate and clarify concepts and to build intuition, insight and understanding. Designed for advanced undergraduates and graduate students who will become end-users of digital image processing, it covers the basics of the major clinical imaging modalities, explaining how the images are produced and acquired. It then presents the standard image processing operations, focusing on practical issues and problem solving. Crucially, the book explains when and why particular operations are done, and practical computer-based activities show how these operations affect real images. All images, links to the public-domain software ImageJ and custom plug-ins, and selected solutions are available from www.cambridge.org/books/dougherty.

After their home burns down, fourteen-year-old Nick, his younger brother, and their father move into a ramshackle Victorian house they've inherited. When Nick opens the door to his attic room, he's hit in the head by a toaster. That's just the beginning of his weird experiences with the old junk stored up there. After getting rid of the odd antiques in a garage sale, Nick befriends some local kids-Mitch, Caitlin, and Vincent-and they discover that all of the objects have extraordinary properties. What's more, Nick figures out that the attic is a strange magnetic vortex, which attracts all sorts of trouble. It's as if the attic itself has an intelligence . . . and a purpose. Ultimately Nick learns that the genius Nikola Tesla placed the items-his last inventions-in the attic as part of a larger plan that he mathematically predicted. Nick and his new friends must retrieve everything that was sold at the garage sale and keep it safe. But the task is fraught with peril-in addition to the dangers inherent in Tesla's mysterious and powerful creations, a secret society of physicists, the Accelerati, is determined to stop Nick and alter destiny to achieve its own devious ends. It's a lot for a guy to handle, especially when he'd much rather fly under the radar as the new kid in town. Fans of intrigue, action, humor, and nonstop surprises are guaranteed a read unlike any other in Tesla's Attic, Book One of the Accelerati Trilogy.
