Stephen Graham Jones may be the best prolific writer you haven't heard of yet, partly because his specialty is literary horror and partly because, despite having a specialty, he's quick to switch genres and hard to pin down. Count up his books and stories and anthologies and e-magazines and e-releases and he has been published 201 times -- but that was in early March, before his Texas noir "Not For Nothing" was published, and before the YA novel he co-wrote with Paul Tremblay, "Floating Boy and the Girl Who Couldn't Fly," came out in April.

WASHINGTON - A top Republican senator sparked reactions from both sides of the aisle after drawing a link between the crisis in Ukraine and President Obama's response to the 2012 attack on a U.S. diplomatic mission in Benghazi, Libya.

They are departures from the organic modernism that has washed over the home decor world: Los Angeles artist Elyse Graham's geodes are wholly unnatural, otherworldly riffs on crystallized rock in neon colors that look borrowed from a nightclub, not an enchanted forest. "I like the idea of taking this natural process that takes millions of years to accomplish and re-creating it in unnatural materials," said Robert Apodaca, owner of the art and design gallery Fifth Floor, which has exhibited Graham's work and is selling the geodes.

The Rev. Billy Graham, one of the nation's most famous evangelists whose ministry tended to presidents and paupers, has been taken to a hospital for observation in Asheville, N.C., his spokesman said Wednesday. Graham, who celebrated his 95th birthday on Nov. 7 at a party with guests including Donald Trump and Sarah Palin, went to the hospital Tuesday and is expected to released soon, his spokesman said. “Billy Graham is in the hospital with a respiratory congestion issue, similar to what he had a few weeks ago. As was the case then, we expect he will be able to return home in a day or two,” Mark DeMoss, a family spokesman, said in a statement emailed to reporters.

"Anyone who writes about Druids and mysteriously coordinated landscapes," Graham Robb admits, "must expect to be treated with suspicion. " Indeed, although the Druids were the learned elite of the ancient Celts, they are better known today as the inspiration for such flaky goings on as the gathering at Stonehenge of ersatz Druids in white robes celebrating the summer solstice.
