About the Author

In their nearly 40-year-long professional collaboration, the husband-and-wife team of Margret and H. A. Rey created one of the most memorable figures in 20th-century children’s literature: Curious George, the little monkey with an insatiable appetite for adventure.

The Reys, like George, had tremendous zest for travel and new experience. Both were born in Germany, H. A. (Hans Augusto) in 1898, and Margret (Margarete Elisabeth Waldstein) in 1906. Although the two became acquainted in their homeland, they fell in love after each moved to Rio de Janeiro, where they married in 1935. Their honeymoon led them to Paris, where Hans published his first book for children, Cecily G. and the Nine Monkeys, introducing Curious George as a peripheral character.

In 1940 the Reys, both of whom were Jewish, fled Paris as the Nazis mounted their invasion of the city, making their way by bicycle to Spain, by train to Lisbon, then to Brazil, New York City, and finally Cambridge, Massachusetts, where they made their home. The few belongings they carried with them from Europe included the manuscript of Curious George, which Houghton Mifflin published in 1941. Together they created six more classic Curious George adventures: Curious George Flies a Kite, Curious George Gets a Medal, Curious George Learns the Alphabet, Curious George Goes to the Hospital, Curious George Rides a Bike, and Curious George Takes a Job.

For Lloyd and Megan, it had been a pretty typical day at the office... until the building they both worked in was invaded by ravenous lizard-things that wanted to eat them alive. Now they're running for their lives, their only goal to somehow get down to the ground floor, where they can escape into the city and hopefully get help from someone... the police, the Army, the National Guard... anyone with enough firepower to take out a six story building full of carnivorous alien monsters. But when they discover that the entire city of Louisville, Kentucky seems to have fallen prey to a horde of hundreds of different unEarthly creatures, all of whom are grabbing and devouring every human they can get their tentacles, claws, paws, tendrils, or manipulating cilia on, they realize there is no sanctuary anywhere... and unless they can find some way to fight back against their attackers, they will become just the latest gobbets of meat ground up and spit out in... THIS SLAUGHTERHOUSE EARTH


The House Of Atreus

RRP $293.99

Using clear language and unconventional examples, this book argues that abortion is not merely a medical or religious issue, but one that goes to the very heart of our conception of human rights. It explains that the unborn are living and human beings, that all human beings have a right to life, and that denying the right to life of some weakens the right to life of all. Bohan supports his thesis by pointing to human rights treaties, the Declaration of Independence, and the words of such luminaries as Albert Schweitzer, Frederick Douglass, Pearl S. Buck, Elie Wiesel, and Martin Luther King Jr. He also examines the connection between abortion and the recent push to legalize assisted suicide and euthanasia. Bohan explains why the Greek myth of the House of Atreus is an apt metaphor for our abortion-minded society that shows the distinction between abortion and infanticide is arbitrary. While the Supreme Court holds that the 14th Amendment does not protect the lives of fetuses, at the time the Amendment was drafted, American scholars were comparing the mental capacity of Black people to that of a white fetus. Bohan also explores the the common aspects involved in the destruction of the unborn and the destruction of Jews by the Nazis: the roles of dehumanization, euphemism, the medical community, science, idealism, and humane killing, among others.
