  • The Kindaichi Case Files : Kindaichi the Killer
    by Kanari, Yozaburo

    As with its four predecessors, the 1990-2002 compilation of On Account of Sex:
    An Annotated Bibliography on the Status of Women in Librarianship continues the
    commitment of ALA's Committee on the Status of Women in Librarianship to
    identify published materials on the status of women in the profession and to
    compile, update and issue a bibliography of these materials on a regular basis.
    This comprehensive and substantially annotated bibliography includes materials
    published in the library and information science literature as well as the
    literature of related fields (i.e., social sciences, management, higher
    education, and women's studies). Some of the topics covered are career
    development for women; salary and compensation; sex discrimination; equal
    stratification in the field; and the history of women in the profession.
    Pertinent materials from the growing body of gender and feminist studies in the
    scholarly literature of librarianship and related fields are indexed. Relevant
    statistical compilations, such as ARL Salary Surveys, which examine gender as a
    variable are covered. Books, articles, essays, government documents, ERIC
    documents, dissertations, conference reports, and pamphlets, as well as some
    non-print materials and electronic documents are included. The book has a broad
    subject arrangement, and entries within are arranged chronologically. Each
    annotation provides the researcher with sufficient information about the source
    to make a decision on its usefulness and applicability.

  • Justine
    by De Sade, Marquis

    Justine was an early work of the Marquis de Sade, written while imprisoned in
    the Bastille. It contains relatively little of the obscenity which characterized
    his later writing. Napoleon Bonaparte called Justine "the most abominable book
    ever engendered by the most depraved imagination." Bonaparte ordered the arrest
    of Sade who as a result was incarcerated for the last 13 years of his life.
    Justine is set just before the French Revolution in France and tells the story
    of a young woman who goes under the name of Therese. Her story is recounted to
    Madame de Lorsagne while defending herself for her crimes, en route to
    punishment and death. She explains the series of misfortunes which have led her
    to be in her present situation. Classic erotic fiction.

  • Dirty Secrets and Other Tales
    by Jacobs, Adia

    Dirty Secrets runs the gamut of smut to thriller. The first story is a series of
    "dirty secrets" as revealed to the author. Each subsequent story reveals fantasy
    orgasms, the irony of prejudice, the insane beauty of pot smoking, and the love
    that festers in all of us for the one we first gave ourselves to. There is
    something in this book for each of us to relate to personally or otherwise.
    While most of this is fiction...there are truths in every word we read or write.

  • Quo Vadis : A Narrative of the Time of Nero
    by Sienkiewicz, Henryk

    Henryk Sienkiewicz (1846-1916) won the 1905 Nobel Prize in Literature. A
    brilliant Polish writer and patriot, he is possibly best known abroad for his
    monumental historical epic Quo Vadis that portrays the vibrant and dissonant
    combination of cruel excesses and decadence of Rome during the reign of the
    corrupt Emperor Nero and the high faith of the emerging era of early
    Christianity. Quo Vadis: A Narrative of the Time of Nero, is a love story of
    Marcus Vinicius, a passionate young Roman tribune, and Lygia Callina, a
    beautiful and gentle Christian maiden of royal Lygian descent and a hostage of
    Rome, raised in a patrician home. At first Marcus, a typical aristocratic Roman
    libertine of his time, has no notion of love and merely desires Lygia with
    erotic animalistic intensity. Through political machinations of the elegant
    Petronius he contrives to have her taken by force from her foster home and into
    the decadent and terrible splendor of the court of Ceasar, setting in motion a
    course of events that culminate in his own spiritual redemption. Intricately
    researched, populated with vibrant historical figures, and gorgeous period
    detail, bloody spectacle and intimate beauty, this is an epic tapestry of the
    triumph of love, faith and sacrifice.
