Harry has no illusions about himself. He looks in the mirror and sees a fat, ugly bloke who's gone stale at the age of thirty-five. He wasn't always like this. In his early twenties, he was into clubbing, dating, just like any other gay guy in London, but since he moved in to look after his mum, and her subsequent death, he's let himself go. Besides, there's no one to make an effort for, so why bother, right? Then a construction site worker starts whistling at him every morning on his way to the office... Tony thinks Harry is one of the sexiest bears he's ever seen. But when he finally gets to talk to Harry, Tony soon realises that getting to know him is going to take some effort.

This book offers essays on both canonical and non-canonical German-language texts and films, advancing ecocritical models for German Studies, and introducing environmental issues in German literature and film to a broader audience. This volume contextualizes the broad-ranging topics and authors in terms of the Anthropocene, beginning with Goethe and the Romantics and extending into twenty-first-century literature and film. Addressing the growing need for environmental awareness in an international humanities curriculum, this book complements ecocritical analyses emerging from North American and British studies with a specifically German Studies perspective, opening the door to a transnational understanding of how the environment plays an integral role in cultural, political, and economic issues.

Hap and Leonard is now a Sundance TV series starring James Purefoy and Michael Kenneth Williams. If there’s one thing Hap Collins and Leonard Pine like, it’s trouble—and they especially like getting paid to find it. So when their friend and sometime boss Marvin Harmon asks the boys to look into a cold-case double homicide, they’re happy to oblige. It turns out that both victims were set to inherit some serious money, and one of them ran with an honest-to-goodness vampire cult. The more closely Hap and Leonard look over the crime-scene photos, the more trouble they see. The image of a red devil’s head painted on a tree is just the beginning—a little research turns up a slew of murders with that same fiendish signature. And if things aren’t weird enough, Leonard has taken to wearing a deestalker cap . . . Will this be the case that finally sends Hap over the edge?
