From R. Barri Flowers, award-winning criminologist and best-selling author of Murder at the Pencil Factory and Murder of the Banker´s Daughter, comes the powerful historical true crime short, Murder During the Chicago World´s Fair: The Killing of Little Emma Werner. On Tuesday, May 9, 1893, seven-year-old Emma Werner was the victim of a brutal and lethal attack in Chicago, Illinois. The dreadful murder came at the start of the city´s much ballyhooed 1893 World´s Columbian Exposition, also known as the Chicago World´s Fair. It coincided with the heinous crimes of ruthless serial killer Herman Webster Mudgett, who went by the name H.H. Holmes and built a hotel called the World´s Fair Hotel to house and profit from the Fair visitors needing a place to stay. The hotel proved to be a veritable death trap for unsuspecting, mostly female, guests and employees alike. Emma´s killer was 21-year-old George Craig, who worked as a painter at the World´s Fair. By the time the Fair was over, the mayor of Chicago, Carter Harrison, would be assassinated by Patrick Eugene Prendergast, a disgruntled newspaper worker. And before the shocking final disposition to the murder of Emma Werner could come to pass nearly four years later, Craig and Prendergast would cross paths in jail, Holmes and Prendergast would be executed, and Craig would be set free in what many saw as an unbelievable miscarriage of justice and misguided sense of compassion for the cold-blooded child killer. The tragic tale of Emma Werner´s short life and its chilling convergence with other tragedies against the backdrop of the 1893 Chicago World´s Fair is revealed in the pages of this historical and fascinating trip down memory lane. 1.

Oswald´s Tale:An American Mystery Norman Mailer
When Why Are We in Vietnam? was published in 1967, almost twenty years after The Naked and the Dead, the critical response was ecstatic. The novel fully confirmed Mailer´s stature as one of the most important figures in contemporary American literature. Now, a new edition of this exceptional work serves as further affirmation of its timeless quality. Narrated by Ranald (´´D.J.´´) Jethroe, Texas´s most precocious teenager, on the eve of his departure to fight in Vietnam, this story of a hunting trip in Alaska is both brilliantly entertaining and profoundly thoughtful. 1.
