Mark W. Moffett Adventures among Ants


Intrepid international explorer, biologist, and photographer Mark W. Moffett, «the Indiana Jones of entomology,» takes us around the globe on a strange and colorful journey in search of the hidden world of ants. In tales from Nigeria, Indonesia, the Amazon, Australia, California, and elsewhere, Moffett recounts his entomological exploits and provides fascinating details on how ants live and how they dominate their ecosystems through strikingly human behaviors, yet at a different scale and a faster tempo. Moffett’s spectacular close-up photographs shrink us down to size, so that we can observe ants in familiar roles; warriors, builders, big-game hunters, and slave owners. We find them creating marketplaces and assembly lines and dealing with issues we think of as uniquely human—including hygiene, recycling, and warfare. <i>Adventures among Ants</i> introduces some of the world’s most awe-inspiring species and offers a startling new perspective on the limits of our own perception.<br /><br />• Ants are world-class road builders, handling traffic problems on thoroughfares that dwarf our highway systems in their complexity<br /><br />• Ants with the largest societies often deploy complicated military tactics<br /><br />• Some ants have evolved from hunter-gatherers into farmers, domesticating other insects and growing crops for food

Gerald Duff Coasters


Waylon McPhee, middle-aged and divorced, moves back in with his widowed father in hopes of coasting through another year. But his father is dating again, and his sisters are trying to manipulate Waylon into asking their father for their inheritance before he gives it to a second wife. The sarcastic Waylon, juggling his relationships and responsibilities caustically but light-heartedly, hangs on hoping to recover something he lost in his youth: enough momentum to reach escape velocity. By turns humorous and melancholy, this novel cruises to a conclusion where all its characters satisfyingly reap what they have sown. Gerald Duff is a splendid writer of sparkling dialogue, and has perfect pitch for the ennui of contemporary life in the suburbs of the petroleum-chemical corridor that stretches along the Gulf Coast from Texas to Mississippi.
