On April 20, 1999, Dylan Klebold and Eric Harris, two seniors at Columbine High School in Littleton, Colorado, walked into their school and shot to death twelve students and one teacher, and wounded many others.
It was the worst single act of murder at a school in U.S. history. Few people knew Dylan Klebold or Eric Harris better than Brooks Brown. Brown and Klebold were best friends in grade school, and years later, at Columbine, Brown was privy to some of Harris and Klebold's darkest fantasies and most troubling revelations. After the shootings, Brown was even accused by the police of having been in on the massacre, simply because he had been friends with the killers.
In No Easy Answers, Brooks Brown and journalist Rob Merritt describe the warning signs that were missed or ignored, what life was like at Columbine High School before the shootings, and the evidence that was kept hidden from the public after the murders. Shocking as well as inspirational, No Easy Answers is an authentic wake-up call for all psychologists, authorities, parents, and anyone wanting to learn the unvarnished facts about growing up as an alienated teenager in America today.

So, if you really want to help Lantern out, buy through us.
Even more pointedly, here's an article on the future of publishing by the pioneering Jason Epstein. It pretty much maps out what I suggested may happen in my video blog below. I don't think it's alarmist or pie-in-the-sky at all. How quickly any of this will happen, I don't know. But some or even most of it is going to come to pass. How do I know? Because it's already happening.
We thought you might to know about the organization behind Human–Animal Studies, the umbrella of academic disciplines featured in the upcoming volume Teaching the Animal and in last year's Social Creatures.
Lanternmedia just produced the following video for Steiner Books on the Blue Rider Stable in South Egremont, Massachusetts. It's a wonderful place, where formerly abused and neglected horses are cared for and help in turn all sorts of people—including handicapped individuals.
Here's the video of Lantern's Tenth Anniversary Party. Thanks to all who came, and who sent their regrets, and who offered us their best wishes. Here's to another decade of trying to walk the talk and publish books that can change the world!
