The Secret War Summary:

It is 1962, and the US Army Special Forces is expanding to confront the communist challenge in Southeast Asia. Sergeant Jake Campbell has come a long way from the sharecropper’s house he grew up in near Nickelsville, Virginia. Just three years ago, he and a friend hitched a ride to Kingsport, Tennessee, and joined the army. Now he is headed for training camp in Fort Bragg, North Carolina, unaware that he is about to undergo the biggest challenge of his life. Campbell immediately immerses himself in the Special Forces training group, anxious to prove himself. He is expecting a tough road ahead lined with mental and physical challenges, but soon finds that he must also face bigotry and class discrimination. Regardless, Campbell persists through pain, sweat, and blood and soon earns a coveted spot with the Green Berets. Ordered on a mission with First Sergeant William Booth—a man who has no love for Campbell—to Laos to train Hmong soldiers to fight the CIA’s secret war, Campbell’s idealistic view of the world is turned upside down as he witnesses the ugly underbelly of unfettered power, corruption, and injustice. In this fast-paced, action-packed military thriller, one soldier must fight for his life in the steamy Vietnamese jungles amidst murder, conspiracy, and a superior who harbors a secret that, if revealed, will ruin him forever.

Smartass Summary:

"Smartass is a smart, sweet coming of age story, evocative of a half-forgotten America at the cusp of tectonic national-and generational-changes that still deeply resonate. Kelly's narrative and dialogue both crackle and continue to entice with each new work!" -Rory O'Connor, author of Nukespeak: The Selling of Nuclear Technology and Friends, Followers and the Future: How Social Media are Changing Politics, Threatening Big Brands, and Killing Traditional Media "Brian Kelly's "Smartass" promises us a wild horse ride in its opening lines and it delivers, but the book itself is more like a time machine that takes us to a vanished time in American life. For people of his generation it will be a bittersweet nostalgic journey and for the young it will reveal a time and place where not only could a black man never become president, he was often forbidden to eat at the same lunch counter as whites. It's important that the younger generation feels how close all that is in time and "Smartass," among other things, does just that." -Richard Lourie, author of Sakharov and The Autobiography of Joseph Stalin "With a black man in the White House, racial politics in America is alive and well. Brian Kelly's novel, Smartass takes us back to a time when America was just beginning to emerge from its nasty history of bigotry and hate. But more than a nostalgic trip down a not so rosy memory lane, the story is a reminder of how far we've come and how far we still have to go. Bravo." -Richard Stratton, author of Altered States of America Brian B. Kelly became the first person in Harvard's long history to complete the requirements for a BA in English while still a sophomore. After meeting requirements for a second major, he graduated from Harvard with honors in 1967. Smartass is his second book. Currently he is working on Commie Spy! The Life and Times of a Soviet Patriot From Brooklyn, a novel based on the life of his friend Joel Barr, the close friend of Julius Rosenberg. He lives in New

The Internet has had a profound effect on collecting—because of the Web, collectibles are now more readily available, collections more easily displayed for a wider audience, and collectors’ online communities are larger and often quite intimate. In addition, the Web has added new items to the pantheon of collectibles, including digital bits that, whether considered virtual or material, are nevertheless collectible. In this work, essays discuss the age-old habit of collecting and its modern relationship with the Internet. Topics include individually authored websites, online auctions, watches, eyewear, Kelly dolls, the gambler’s rush of online acquisition, mp3s, collecting friends via online social networking sites, and online museums, among others.

Cayenne Heat Summary:

Every person in France is fully aware that Bonheur means happiness and well-being. But how does a wretch convicted of a petty crime find happiness or even survival in a prison known for its inhumanity? That place robbed me of my youth, my teeth, and my peace of mind while instilling within me a fierce desire to escape. Though I planned each escape with great care, something always went wrong. Perhaps I was the sorry victim of a malicious destiny. If so, that mysterious force, was up against the resilience of the human spirit, its power to endure. More than a few times I survived soul-shattering solitary confinement to run as fast and as far as I could. I had little muscle compared to the hulking convicts in French Guiana, but we all know strength is not defined by muscle alone. My narrative speaks of desperate attempts to escape the oppressive heat, horror, and corruption of the prison colony the French called Bagne de Cayenne.
