The founder of a rare bird sanctuary shares a look at the lives of exotic birds and the people who care for them in this “anecdotal, entertaining memoir” (Publishers Weekly) Michele Raffin is the founder of Pandemonium Aviaries, a conservation organization dedicated to saving and breeding birds at the edge of extinction. It is home to some of the largest populations of rare species in the world. And their behavior is even more fascinating than their glorious plumage or their songs. Among the many avian characters we meet are Sweetie, a tiny quail with an outsize personality; Oscar, a Lady Gouldian finch who finds a way to reach the highest perches of his aviary to roost despite not being able to fly; and Amigo, an Amazon parrot with a surprisingly rude vocabulary. These birds fall in love, mourn lost loved ones, share jokes, feel jealous—and sometimes even murder each other. Ultimately, The Birds of Pandemonium is about one woman’s crusade to save precious lives, bird by bird, and offers insights into how following a passion can transform not only oneself but also the world.

Our health and habitat are being threatened by biological invaders moving at unprecedented speed. Avian flu and its potential to cause a human pandemic is only one example of a worldwide menace unwittingly unleashed by the forces of globalization. The combination of unfettered free trade in living organisms, increased mobility, and urban crowding has created an increasingly volatile environment for the world’s 6.5 billion people. Nikiforuk argues that it shouldn’t take a pandemic to make us rethink the deadly pace of globalization and biological traffic. Authoritative and wide-ranging, Pandemonium is a clear-eyed guide to instability, unpredictability, and the hidden biological terrorist on our doorstep.

Just a couple of months before his tragic passing in March 2020, cartooning master of the macabre Richard Sala completed his final book ― or, actually, his final four books. Poison Flowers and Pandemonium collects all four of these original graphic novellas in one beautiful hardcover worthy of Sala’s legacy. First up in Poison Flowers is “House of the Blue Dwarf,” a 125-page thriller featuring master criminal the Bloody Cardinal, who leaves a wake of mayhem and madness everywhere he goes. “Monsters Illustrated” is a fun, 64-page monster movie riff that showcases Sala’s visual imagination. A young woman in a dusty bookstore reads a strange bestiary ― the “book within a book” showcases a series of Sala’s gorgeous watercolor and ink drawings. But when she gets to the end, she finds the bookseller drives a hard bargain. “Cave Girls Of The Lost World” is a campy, 60-page romp about a team of young women whose plane crashes in a land forgotten by time and rife with dinosaurs, carnivorous plants, and apemen ― but these intelligent, brave, and resourceful women are ready to rumble! Rounding out the book is “The Amazing Adventures of Fantomina Fantomella,” a 45-page graphic novella of violence and non-stop action. Priest and his mob thought Fantomina was dead. So how is it that she's come back with a vengeance? Poison Flowers & Pandemonium is a perfect showcase of Sala's gorgeous watercolor artwork and his love of B-movie horror, silent film-era archetypes, and femmes fatale.

James E. Huchingson takes computer and information science seriously in this constructive theology. Central to his reflection is an understanding of the primordial chaos--Pandemonium Tremendum--not as destructive, but as the source out of which God creates, sustains, and empowers creatures to become co-creators.
