My Starbucks Mermaid
Author: Brian Baxter
The Starbucks mermaid has always held a special appeal and fascination for the millions of customers who patronize this global coffee chain, and has become the symbol and centerpiece of one of the most widely recognized brands in the world. She has been swimming subliminally in the collective consciousness of consumers for a long time, yet until now, no one has engaged the sexuality of this enigmatic sea-goddess so directly, so provocatively, so explicitly as Brian Baxter does in this audacious account of interspecies intercourse—with a splash!
My Starbucks Mermaid goes boldly where no man (or woman) has gone before—all the way into the mystical deeps with this seductive siren and her promise of pleasures even more compelling than caffeine. Though many suspected that the Starbucks mermaid had a wild side, who really knew that she was “a secret wanton,” harboring her own yearnings and desires, that she “would spread her legs for the right guy.” The narrative shifts deftly from the sensual to the subversive to the sublime, making this improbable love affair as real as any—in all its slippery implausibility.
Both poetic and perverse, My Starbucks Mermaid is sure to provoke and entertain those readers who are prepared to take the plunge with the world’s most celebrated maritime maiden.

Every Family should have this beautiful story book.
Journalism instructor on the outside, unrepentant hippie within, Paul Wilson signs on at a startup newspaper to track down rumors that Bush and Cheney had advance warning of the 9/11 terrorist attacks.
Two other reporters accompany him to Washington: adventurous Debra, demure but braless, and the more conservative Caitlin, a young Persian-American who plays Candide to Wilson s Martin. Extracts from Caitlin's letters and diary (partly recorded in transliterated Farsi) alternate with third-person accounts of the investigation.
To get results, Wilson also has to work with two Arab-American reporters. Only he doesn t trust them, isn t sure whether the tales they relay are truth or lies. Though witness after witness corroborates the tale of a conspiracy involving the Vice-President and members of the Saudi royal family, it takes threats from two rogue FBI agents to convince him.
Still, it would be as misleading to characterize Conspiracy as an expose of the corruption and ineptitude of the Bush administration as to describe Cabaret as the story of the Nazis rise to power. For above all, Conspiracy is a novel about people, of the relationships among the reporters and those they encounter during the course of their investigation.

Caroline must deal not only with the string of bizarre murders but a vengeful ex-husband, his alcoholic heiress child bride, a manipulative and sleazy FBI inspector and an enigmatic soldier with sexy blue eyes. The stark realization that the killer is not her contemporary is not nearly as terrifying as the seeping suspicion that the final and ultimate target may be her children, living with their father and his new wife.

Visit to a Small Town
Steven had been on the road for several days, hitchhiking home from college, when he came across the small New England town, nestled in a secluded valley. Most of the people who lived there had been born there. Like Mrs. Eleanor Ross, who manages the five and dime, shy young Ellie Ryerson who works in the store after school, and Tom McCabe, the town s police chief.
Stephen and Ellie are instantly attracted to one another and arrange to go to the movies after she gets off work. While she is waiting for Steven to arrive, McCabe invites Ellie to go for a ride in his patrol car. Knowing the police chief s reputation, she refuses. He drags her inside the car , ignoring her protests, and drives away.
Steven pursues them on foot up the mountain but is impeded at every step by the town and townspeople. Middle-aged women clutch at him for sex, dogs attack him, cruising teen-agers throw beer cans.
McCabe too has been busy, killing first a burglar, the burglar s dog, and then one of his own deputies. He is in the process of burying Ellie alive in the town cemetery when he and Steven finally come face to face.

Moonstruck students relentlessly pursue their teachers as often as these teachers, repentant and shameless alike, pursue their students.
