With sequels, prequels, remakes, spin-offs, or copies of successful films or franchises dominating film and television production, it sometimes seems as if Hollywood is incapable of making an original film or TV show. These textual pluralities or multiplicities—while loved by fans who flock to them in droves—tend to be dismissed by critics and scholars as markers of the death of high culture. Cycles, Sequels, Spin-offs, Remakes, and Reboots takes the opposite view, surveying a wide range of international media multiplicities for the first time to elucidate their importance for audiences, industrial practices, and popular culture. The essays in this volume offer a broad picture of the ways in which cinema and television have used multiplicities to streamline the production process, and to capitalize on and exploit viewer interest in previously successful and/or sensational story properties. An impressive lineup of established and emerging scholars talk seriously about forms of multiplicity that are rarely discussed as such, including direct-to-DVD films made in Nigeria, cross-cultural Japanese horror remakes, YouTube fan-generated trailer mash-ups, and 1970s animal revenge films. They show how considering the particular bonds that tie texts to one another allows us to understand more about the audiences for these texts and why they crave a version of the same story (or character or subject) over and over again. These findings demonstrate that, far from being lowbrow art, multiplicities are actually doing important cultural work that is very worthy of serious study.

A New York Times bestseller! The follow up to the #1 New York Times bestselling An Inconvenient Truth and companion to Vice President Al Gore’s new documentary, An Inconvenient Sequel: Truth to Power, this new book is a daring call to action. It exposes the reality of how humankind has aided in the destruction of our planet and delivers hope through groundbreaking information on what you can do now. Vice President Gore, one of our environmental heroes and a leading expert in climate change, brings together cutting-edge research from top scientists around the world; approximately 200 photographs and illustrations to visually articulate the subject matter; and personal anecdotes and observations to document the fast pace and wide scope of global warming. He presents, with alarming clarity and conclusiveness (and with humor, too) that the fact of global climate change is not in question and that its consequences for the world we live in will be assuredly disastrous if left unchecked. Follow Vice President Gore around the globe as he tells a story of change in the making. He connects the dots of Zika, flooding, and other natural disasters we’ve lived through in the last 10+ years—and much more. The book also offers a comprehensive how-to guide on exactly how we can change the course of fate. With concrete, actionable advice on topics ranging from how to run for office to how to talk to your children about climate change, An Inconvenient Sequel will empower you to make a difference—and lets you know how exactly to do it. Where Gore’s first documentary and book took us through the technical aspects of climate change, the second documentary is a gripping, narrative journey that leaves you filled with hope and the urge to take action immediately. This book captures that same essence and is a must-have for everyone who cares deeply about our planet.

Many of you who have previously read the fi rst three volumes of Twisted Trysts know that the inside will reveal a collection of erotic short stories that will engage you in a delightful or delectable twist. To my readers who have not yet read Twisted Trysts volumes 1 2, or 3, a tryst pronounced(trist) is an agreement, especially between lovers, to meet. These stories reveal the lifestyles of various characters with diverse cultural backgrounds from different time zones and dissimilar philosophies about love. The one similarity is the fact that people have not really changed during this millennium. The human condition remains unaltered especially when a man and a woman are engaged in romantic entanglements or are in love. Each story presents the challenges of love, and each tryst is set on a romantic stage of sensuality, desire, and delight. "Saja Bo Storm does it again! Her magic with words keeps you spellbound, and yearning for more. The Trysts series is a culmination of love, romance, drama, and happenstance." Dorothy J Morris, author of the Fatal Trilogy "Provocative!" Delnora L. Kelly, Women's Affairs Advisory Council (WAAC) chairperson "Saja Bo Storm has again captured our hearts and souls as we breathlessly read her latest collection of trysts." -Valerie Fraling, columnist of Living for the Weekend' Afro American Newspaper, Baltimore "A wickedly twisted delight the surprise endings will catch you off guard" Marilyn Jones, librarian/branch manager
