The Player Gets Played Trey Stephens, a self-proclaimed player runs into an alluring woman who reeks of old wisdom and soft fuzzies. He knows that without effort, he could snuggle down into her cozy world forever, without a whimper. But he's not ready for forever, he still has hearts to score. He thinks of himself as a fantasy weaver. His MO is to be the perfect lover for whomever he is involved with, for however long they're involved. He could never see himself confined to one woman when there were so many who wanted the opportunity to be with a good man. He senses, however, if he were to hook up with only one woman, this would be the one. Another translation of that--he may've just met his match--which to him is tantamount to being challenged, and he's never walked away from a good challenge. He vacillates between the urge to get it on with this siren, and the inclination to follow his foreboding feeling to ignore her. That should've warned him that this wasn't going to be a sashay-in sashay-out situation.

But what he finds during the painstaking process of excavating the huge creature baffles the mind. Huddled next to the mammoth is the mummified body of a Stone Age man around 12,000 years old. And he is wearing a wristwatch. It looks like Howard Christian is going to get his wish—and more…

Children with sensory and cognitive difficulties can struggle to interact with their peers, be easily distracted, and have problems coping with change. Fuzzy Buzzy Groups for Children with Developmental and Sensory Processing Difficulties has been devised to address the needs of children with sensory processing difficulties and development delay in specialist and inclusive settings. This easy-to-follow resource will enable professionals to engage with children in a relaxed and fun way that explores sensory experiences. It contains everything you need to run a Fuzzy Buzzy group: from advice for choosing sensory food and drink and criteria for selecting suitable children, to tips for involving parents in the group and sourcing sensory materials. The authors guide you step-by-step through how to carry out a session, and include photocopiable forms and checklists as well as a sing-along CD containing music to use with the group. This resource will help children not just to explore sensory experiences, but also to learn to share, take turns, listen, interact with their peers and improve their self-esteem. The eight-session programme is ideally suited to children aged 2-5, although this can be adapted to suit individual needs, and is perfect for early years' practitioners, teachers, teaching assistants, family respite carers and other professionals working with young children.

From New York Times bestseller and Hugo Award-winner John Scalzi, an extraordinary retelling of the SF classic Little Fuzzy ZaraCorp holds the right to extract unlimited resources from the verdant planet Zarathustra—as long as the planet is certifiably free of native sentients. So when an outback prospector discovers a species of small, appealing bipeds who might well turn out to be intelligent, language-using beings, it's a race to stop the corporation from "eliminating the problem," which is to say, eliminating the Fuzzies—wide-eyed and ridiculously cute small, and furry—who are as much people as we are.
