Sondra Pransky is a lowly college newspaper reporter in London for the summer visiting friends. Brought onstage by magician Sid Waterman one night during his act, Sondra is visited by the spirit of famous journalist Joe Strombel while inside one of Sid's "magic" boxes. Given the scoop of a lifetime on the possible identity of the famous tarot card serial killer by the apparition, Sondra, with Sid in tow, tries to infiltrate the aristocratic life of Peter Lyman, only to find a romantic entanglement with the gentleman puts a damper on her efforts to gather the evidence and write a career-making scoop
Magic trip : Ken Kesey's search for a kool place( Visual )

1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 414 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In 1964, author Ken Kesey and his friends, known as the Merry Pranksters, set out on a cross-country bus trip from California to New York to visit the World's Fair. They also decided to record it, with several 16 mm movie cameras and audio tape. Compiled from more than 40 hours of footage shot during the journey, it was the magical mystery tour--fueled by both the countercultural sentiments of the time and lots of LSD--that became legend. The participants were not beatniks, not-yet-hippies, but a group of preppy-looking partygoers, outfitted in red, white, and blue, whose traveling bacchanal zigzagged across the country. In those more relaxed times, the Pranksters encountered only sporadic harassment, as they spread low-key mayhem in Phoenix, New Orleans, Houston, and the Millbrook, N.Y. estate where Timothy Leary held court. The film record of this famous bohemian lark is uneven, befitting an unsteady (if borderline revolutionary) group in a time of widespread cultural upheaval

"Set in 1903, Tracker is a tense manhunt thriller in which Arjan, a guerilla survivor of the South African Boer War, lands in colonial New Zealand and is promised a bounty to capture Kereama, a Maori seafarer accused of killing a soldier. What should be a simple job for Arjan, a master tracker, turns into a gripping and dangerous game of cat and mouse as Kereama repeatedly escapes and is recaptured, all the while insisting on his innocence. As each gains and loses the upper hand, they gradually get to know and respect each other. In an emotional and high-risk showdown, their tenuous bond is tested in the face of a military posse"--Container
