Image: Lost Art of Ah Pook: Here Images from the HC GN  - Fantagraphics Books

The Lost Art Of Ah Pook gathers the visual elements from the legendary unfinished collaboration between William S. Burroughs and artist Malcolm McNeill. Begun in the early 1970's, Ah Pook was to be a meditation on time, power, control and corruption that evoked the Mayan codices and specifically, the Mayan god of death, Ah Pook. Although the work was never completed, Malcolm McNeill created over a hundred paintings, illustrations and sketches for the book, and these are finally seeing the light of day in The Lost Art of Ah Pook. Even in a context divorced from the words (Burroughs' text will not be included), they represent a stunning precursor to the graphic novel form to come. Also included is a historical essay chronicling the long history of Burroughs' and McNeill's work together. [(W) Malcolm McNeill, William S. Burroughs (CA) Malcolm McNeill]

From the beginning of history, halflings have lived side-by-side with humanity, living in human cities, adopting human customs, and seeing to the common needs of humans as cooks, entertainers, and menials. At once hard working and lackadaisical, comfortable at home but willing to leave in an instant if the right opportunity comes along, halflings are a study in contrasts. They're also loyal, good-natured, and among the best companions an adventurer can have. And now, at long last, their secrets, culture, beliefs, and lore can be revealed! Pathfinder Player Companion: Halflings of Golarion provides Pathfinder RPG players everything they need to play halfling characters, bringing a race that all too often slips into the background front and center!

A hail of bullets. Dive-bombing lawnmowers. Muscle cars and femme fatales with more curves than a runaway bus! Throw in a side of cheesecake and welcome to the shadowy underworld of Greg "Stainboy" Reinel. Peeling out from the early punk rock scene (and once fronting his own turbocharged rock 'n' roll dragster, Nutrajet) Stainboy's Day-Glo color, powerhouse linework, and love of pop culture trash have made his eye-assaulting posters a perennial favorite among rock's cutting edge, including Motörhead, Buzzcocks, Sevendust, High on Fire, and Nashville Pussy. Dripping with violent wit and dark humor, Stainboy's posters demand immediate attention, armed with loaded guns, busty broads, gleaming street machines, and tributes to classic exploitation cinema. Stainboy's dossier has grown to include a diversity of work for clients such as the House of Blues, Fuse TV, Club International magazine, Signatures Network, and music venues around the world.

When LeRoy Neiman and Hugh Hefner met in the early 1950s, while Neiman was doing women's high fashion drawings and Hefner was a copywriter in a Chicago department store, neither could have predicted that a twelve-inch woman called Femlin was waiting in the wings. But Femlin is mischievous. She's spunky. And she knows how to strike while the iron is hot. Fifty years later, Femlin is still going strong and sassy. Neiman has drawn her for every issue of Playboy for the last half-century, showing her at play, at sport, and at her ease. Wearing her trademark heels, stockings, and gloves-and not much else-Femlin has become a beloved icon of Playboy...and a celebrity in her own right. This book features text and images by Neiman, and an afterword by Playboy founder and publisher Hugh M. Hefner. Playboy will celebrate the fiftieth anniversary of the Femlin with a special feature in the August 2007 issue of Playboy magazine. In addition to the regular edition M Press will be releasing a slipcased, limited edition, numbered at only 250 copies and signed by LeRoy Neiman.
