Sandman Slim #5: Kill City Blues
Stark has managed to get out of Hell, renounce his title as the new Lucifer, and settle back into life in Los Angeles. But along the way he misplaced the Qomrama Om Ya, a weapon from the banished older gods who are also searching for their lost power. The hunt leads Stark to an abandoned shopping mall - a multi-story copy of LA - infested with Lurkers and wretched bottom-feeding Sub Rosa families, squatters who have formed tight tribes to guard their tiny territories. Somewhere in the kill zone of the former mall is a dead man with the answers Stark needs. All Stark has to do is find the dead man, get back out alive, and outrun some angry old gods - and a few killers - on his tail.

MacMillan, Margaret  
The War That Ended Peace: The Road to 1914
Historian MacMillan creates a portrait of the personalities and factors that pushed Europe over the brink into a catastrophic, world-changing conflagration, evoking the decisions made, and the economic, social, political, and human tensions that determined the lead-up to the war. Colonial rivalries; ethnic nationalism; Germany's rise to power; shifting alliances; and the belief in a Social Darwinism, that competition among nations was part of nature's rule, and that the strongest would rightfully emerge victorious: all exerted influence.
