Novels, Readers, and Reviewers: Responses to Fiction in Antebellum America

by Nina Baym

This book describes and characterizes responses of American readers to fiction in the generation before the Civil War. It is based on close examination of the reviews of all novels—both American and European—that appeared in major American periodicals during the years 1840–1860, a period in which magazines, novels, and novel reviews all proliferated. Nina Baym makes uses of the reviews to gain information about the formal, aesthetic, and moral expectations of reviewers. Her major conclusion is that the accepted view about the American novel before the Civil War—the view that the atmosphere in America was hostile to fiction—is a myth. There is compelling evidence, she shows, for the existence of a veritable novel industry and, concomitantly, a vast audience for fiction in the 1840...

TRACING THE BREWERS OF COLONIAL VIRGINIA: THE TRAIL OF YDNA SUBCLADE I-Y21524 TO NORTH CAROLINA AND BEYOND

by David Brewer

This book traces the history of a significant branch of the Brewer Family from 17th century Colonial Virginia through the mid-19th century, a period for which many existing family pedigrees have been speculative or unknown. The author brings modern YDNA tools and a detailed record analysis to bear in an effort to more accurately examine the roots of this family group. The author hypothesizes, based on the record evidence identified to date, that the tested members of this YDNA subclade - I-Y21524 -are descendants of John Brewer (I), one of the so-called ancient planters of the English colony in Virginia, through his son John Brewer II. As the book explains, it is possible that most of the tested members of this family group are descendants of John II's reputed son Thomas Brewer, who liv...

Yuri: Greek. Biker. Billionaire.

by Marian Tee

His name was Yuri Athanas.
They called him the golden boy of the Afxisi, a college org during the day and an underground racing club at night.
Like his brothers, Yuri was rich, powerful, gorgeous, and devastatingly sexy.
Unlike his brothers, Yuri did not leave a trail of broken hearts behind him.
Yuri was the angel amidst all the other Greek devils, they said.
I liked hearing that about him. It gave me hope that when we do meet again, he would remember his promise, and he would keep it.
He would take one look at me and he wouldn’t mind that I wasn’t…okay.
He wouldn’t mind I wasn’t…normal.
If he was everything I prayed he would be, he’d take one look at me and love me, like he had promised....
