The Man Who Fell Through the Earth

In this beguiling mystery from Carolyn Wells, a young lawyer who is wrapping up work for the day hears a fight break out in another room in the office. The sounds of the life-or-death struggle end suddenly when a gunshot rings out – but upon investigating, the witness can't find any sign that a crime has taken place.

A technology-fueled spin on a classic sports tale, Game Boys profiles "cyber-athletes" who compete for dominance in the professional gaming circuit, a world populated with rivalries, big egos, corporate sponsorships, and large cash prizes. Michael Kane's pioneering account of the lifestyle and business of gaming takes readers to the heart of "e-sports," what many consider the successor in sports entertainment to the X-games and competitive poker. Following the top teams-3D and CompLexity, a rivalry as bitter as the Yankees versus the Red Sox-Kane profiles the star players as they cheat, strategize, sign with rival teams, and get berated by sideline-pacing coaches. Are gamers really the athletes of tomorrow? They act like they are. A lively tour of the quirks and dramas of a subculture on the cusp of big things, Game Boys is a tale of sports glory and a glimpse into the lucrative business of gaming.
