Something Else Press is credited with being among the first publishers of an entirely new genre: integral artworks designed for publication, now widely known as "artists' books." From 1963 to 1974 Dick Higgins & associates presented over sixty publications, including major non-traditional works by John Cage, Merce Cunningham, Claes Oldenburg, Emmett Williams, & Allan Kaprow, among many others. The press also issued anthologies of concrete poetry, artists' unrealizable architectural projects, & many long-out-of-print works by Gertrude Stein. This illustrated critical history features Peter Frank's annotation provides an overview of the operation as well as salient descriptions of each publication, complete with press runs, co-editions, cancellations, & ephemera. There are photographs of each book jacket or cover, & many interior pages. We published this book originally in 1983; it has been out-of-print for a number of years. Last year we discovered about 100 book blocks of the original edition whose covers had been slightly spoiled. These we were able to arrange for a superb rebinding, & now offer the remaining 80 copies for sale, which will be of particular interest for scholars & academic libraries.
Benny Curtis is a twelve-year-old boy with an eidetic memory-the ability to remember almost everything he sees or hears. Benny's grandfather is a retired humanities professor who loves everything historical. So when he starts spending a lot of time with his grandfather, Benny's mind becomes filled with the history of all sorts of subjects-baseball, movies, art, TV, rock and roll, etc. With this historical context and his incredible memory, Benny is able to view the world in a unique way. Last year when Benny was eleven, a number of amazing things occurred, not "supernatural" amazing, but real-life amazing. But in order for you to appreciate these remarkable events, you need to hear what led up to them. Benny's journey is filled with humorous observations, anecdotes, and reflections, as he analyzes the world around him.

Something Else is a sequel to Daniel J. Kornstein's classic 1994 study of Shakespeare and the law Kill All the Lawyers? The author found he had more — something else — to say on the subject. Written in the same crisp, lucid, and witty style as his previous critically acclaimed and highly influential book on Shakespeare, Kornstein's new book continues his illuminating, original, and entertaining explorations of the Bard and the law. In Something Else Kornstein probes new Shakespeare territory with insight and eloquence, but without academic. He analyzes from a fresh perspective, and devastatingly picks apart, Mark Twain's "evidence" that Shakespeare could not have written the plays because he was not a lawyer. Kornstein submits for the reader's verdict moot court briefs based on Hamlet and The Merchant of Venice. A timely chapter on Coriolanus shows how that rarely performed play explains much about democracy and elections in America. The author's discussion of Henry V and the law of war will rivet everyone's attention with its relevance to recent history and current events. Other chapters look at why Shakespeare never mentions Magna Carta in King John, comment on the many crooked judges in Shakespeare's plays, untangles The Comedy of Errors, tries to solve the mystery of Richard III and the princes in the Tower. In a whimsical final chapter, the author imagines a conversation

Ten-year old Elisheva Raskin has a knack for getting herself into sticky situations at home or in school with her friends, but tries to make the best of every situation.
Virtually every scholar on both sides of the same-sex discussion eventually addresses the account of Sodom found in Genesis 19. However, in recent years, scholars have tended to downplay the importance of this chapter in relation to this debate. This book challenges this trend and seeks to demonstrate how the account of Sodom plays a key role in our understanding of a God-ordained sexual ethic, especially in light of Genesis as Torah--instruction for both ancient Israel and for the Church.
