Holes by Louis Sachar holes.gif (11697 bytes) Ages 10 and older.
"If you take a bad boy and make him dig a hole every day in the hot sun, it will turn him into a good boy." This is the main philosophy at Camp Green Lake, where Stanley Yelnats has been sent. Stanley has been accused for a crime he hasn't committed. He has a choice to be sent to prison, or to Green Lake, a juvenile camp for boys. ("Stanley was from a poor family. He had never been to camp before.") He decides that Camp Green Lake has to be better than jail. When he gets there he finds out he was wrong. Every day for a year a half, Stanley has to dig a five feet wide and five feet deep hole in “Green Lake”, a desert that once was the largest lake in Texas. Stanley makes a friend, Zero (nicknamed thus because this is exactly what the world finds him to be), with whom he eventually escapes the camp...

Science books

The Hole in the Universe: How Scientists Peered over the Edge of Emptiness and Found Everything by K. C. Cole

At Home in the Universe: The Search for Laws of Self-Organization and Complexity by Stuart Kauffman

** How the Mind Works by Steven Pinker
Despite its overstated title and chapter headings, this 600-page book is extremely well written and clever in its use of the English language.

How to Build a Time Machine by P. C. W. Davies

The Hunt for Zero Point: Inside the Classified World of Antigravity Technology by Nick Cook

*** Hyperspace: A Scientific Odyssey Through Parallel Universes, Time Warps and the Tenth Dimension by Michio Kaku
This book is the best one on the speculative idea that the number of spatial dimensions of the universe might be more than three. It begins with a nice metaphor about a fish in a shallow pond that cannot imagine that there is a world beyond its murky waters.

How to be... How to Be a GREAT LOVER by Lou Paget

Girlfriend-to-Girlfriend Totally Explicit Techniques That Will Blow His Mind.

One of America's most popular sexperts (a woman) offers a fun, refreshingly modern, totally explicit guide to mastering a man's body.


Stephen King - Hearts in Atlantis Hearts in Atlantis The 60's! King can scare like noone else scares. He can also touch like noone else touches. In this book, he touches the hearts of those of us who lived through the Sixties and its aftermath. Set in fictional Harwich and semifictional Bridgeport, Hearts in Atlantis weaves five Vietnam-haunted small-town New England stories into a deeply moving overall vision. The five are: Low Men in Yellow Coats, set in 1960 and at about 250 pages the longest; Hearts in Atlantis, set in 1966; Blind Willie, set in 1983; Why We're in Vietnam and Heavenly Shades of Night Are Failing, both set in 1999.
"We now know what Stephen King, the master of horror, is afraid of. In Hearts in Atlantis, King takes up the Vietnam War, and it scares him so bad he won't let his hero act imprudently." (Caleb Crain, The New York Times Book Review)
Hitler Hitler, the War and the Pope by Ronald J. Rychlak, John O'Connor
... and still another book defending Pius XII. An extraordinary answer to John Cornwell's accusation.

World Literature

                Honey for the Bears The exhilarating Russia novel by Anthony Burgess

   Hughes - Shock Robert Hughes - The Shock of the New

Hughes' special brilliance is his ability to show the revolution in art at the turn of the 20th century as reacting to the revolution in technology and living standards and the rapid changes in every part of society - the "shock" of this race to "newnesss" that really starting picking up speed a hundred years ago.


                The HACKER and the ANTS by Rudy Rucker

Jerzy Rugby, programmer, is involved in the creation and design of a new robot for massmarket. The product has to be alive, or better stated, A-life. In the process a special kind of ant is created, a cyber-ant, one that lives only IN the computer, and it's very very alive. You may be guessing the ants are troublesome and are going to get loose. What you are not going to guess is the rest of the plot...

What happens when man creates an inorganic self-sustaining entity that has the ability to evolve into a higher level of existence? What happens when the bugs come out to play? Rucker has some interesting answers to the questions. Wacky and funny book.

Prog rock
          Cd935.gif (1106 bytes)Steve Hackett - Voyage of the Acolyte
Best album Genesis never made! Sounding like a lost Genesis album that would fit quite nicely between Foxtrot and Selling England By The Pound. Gushing with mellotrons, haunting Hackett guitar wailings, and even featuring two other Genesis members (Collins and Rutherford), most of this stuff blows away anything on the subsequent Genesis album A Trick Of The Tail.

           haslinger Paul Haslinger - Score
This album juxtaposes traditional and electronic music in a conscous and meaningful way.
Paul Haslinger, ex-member of Tangerine Dream, has been building a catalog of cutting-edge music for the new millennium. Following on the heels of his 1997 ethno-techno blowout, World Without Rules, he steps into a space-age bachelor pad for Score. Great jazz flavour and a dark textured sound.

        Penelope Houston - Tongue   Penelope Houston has stretched the boundaries of her musical mediums, releasing several delicate-sounding acoustic solo albums that, despite their quiet demeanor, never obscured her acerbic lyrics. With a new release, Tongue, the multi-hued vocalist has found an interesting space midway between hervenomous punk past and more recent neo-folk leanings.
