Watch Us Roll by Shelly Jones Book Summary:

Actual play is a movement within role-playing gaming in which players livestream their gameplay for others to watch and enjoy. This new medium has allowed the playing of games to become a digestible, consumable text for individuals to watch, enjoy, learn from, and analyze. Bridging the gap between the analog and the digital, actual play is changing and challenging our expectations of tabletop role-playing and providing a space for new scholarship. This edited collection of essays focuses on Dungeons and Dragons actual play and examines this phenomenon from a variety of different disciplinary approaches. Authors explore how to define actual play, how fans interact with and affect the narrative and gameplay of actual play, the diversity of gamers (or lack thereof) within actual play media, and how audiences can use actual play media for more than mere entertainment.

Homeschooling and Libraries by Vera Gubnitskaia,Carol Smallwood Book Summary:

“With over 3.5 million homeschooled students in the U.S., this book admirably explores the intersection of this growing and important grass roots movement and libraries of all kinds, showing how and why libraries are a vital element in the homeschooling movement.”—Bruce R. Schueneman, Library Director, James C. Jernigan Library, Texas A&M University-Kingsville “A rich and exciting sourcebook for librarians serving those outside of formal schooling.”—Tim Gorichanaz, Drexel University, Philadelphia “This book effectively covers all the bases ensuring positive experiences and outcomes for libraries serving home school families in their service areas.”—Deb Biggs Tenbusch, Librarian and Account Manager, Gale, Cengage Learning, Farmington Hills, Michigan “Whether starting new programs or expanding current ones, these chapters will help you to engage and prepare your resources to help homeschoolers.”—Kathleen Christy, Adult Services Manager, Blount County Public Library, Maryville, Tennessee “21st century homeschoolers are facing new challenges and this book presents fresh solutions and describes opportunities you may not realize existed for your library to serve these important patrons.”—Robert Perret, Contributor, Creativity for Library Career Advancement “I think infinite possibilities best describes this must-read book for public and academic librarians who seek to find ways to engage, support and serve the growing homeschool community.”—Anastasia Varnalis-Weigle, Associate Professor, University of Maine, Augusta “Librarians of all types, as well as library stakeholders, will find Homeschooling and Libraries a great resource to help identify needs and ways to support the growing homeschooling community.”—Michelle McKinney, Reference and Web Services Librarian, University of Cincinnati Blue Ash College, Cincinnati, Ohio “An impressively-researched volume that draws on a variety of perspectives, offering insight into the needs of homeschooled populations, including case studies, needs assessment, and future possibilities for programming, continuing education, and outreach.”—Erin Pappas, Research Librarian for the Humanities, University of Virginia Libraries “This practical book will assist libraries as they develop ways to reach out to home educating families.”—Ruth Elder, Cataloging Librarian, Troy University, Troy, Alabama “This book reopened my mind to the wonders that libraries in all of their aspects and attributes have to offer students including the unique and diverse students who are homeschooled.”—Jim Jipson, University of West Florida, Pensacola, Florida As families are looking for better ways to educate their children, more and more of them are becoming interested and engaged in alternative ways of schooling that are different, separate, or opposite of the traditional classroom. Homeschooling has become ever more creative and varied as families create custom-tailored curricula, assignments, goals, and strategies that are best for each unique child. This presents a multitude of challenges and opportunities for information institutions, including public, academic, school, and special libraries. The need for librarians to help homeschool families become information and media literate is more important than ever. This collection of essays provides a range of approaches and strategies suggested by skilled professionals as well as veteran homeschool parents on how to best serve the diverse needs and learning experiences of homeschooled youth. It includes information on needs assessments for special needs students, gifted students, and African American students; advice on how to provide support for the families of homeschoolers; case studies; and information on new technologies that could benefit libraries and the homeschooler populations that they serve.“With over 3.5 million homeschooled students in the U.S., this book admirably explores the intersection of this growing and important grass roots movement and libraries of all kinds, showing how and why libraries are a vital element in the homeschooling movement.”—Bruce R.

Dread Trident by Curtis D. Carbonell Book Summary:

Dread Trident examines the rise of imaginary worlds in tabletop role-playing games (TRPGs), such as Dungeons and Dragons. With the combination of analog and digital mechanisms, from traditional books to the internet, new ways of engaging the fantastic have become increasingly realized in recent years, and this book seeks an understanding of this phenomenon within the discourses of trans- and posthumanism, as well as within a gameist mode. The book explores a number of case studies of foundational TRPGs. Dungeons and Dragons provides an illustration of pulp-driven fantasy, particularly in the way it harmonizes its many campaign settings into a functional multiverse. It also acts as a supreme example of depth within its archive of official and unofficial published material, stretching back four decades. Warhammer 40k and the Worlds of Darkness present an interesting dialogue between Gothic and science-fantasy elements. The Mythos of HP Lovecraft also features prominently in the book as an example of a realized world that spans the literary and gameist modes. Realized fantasy worlds are becoming ever more popular as a way of experiencing a touch of the magical within modern life. Reworking Northrop Frye's definition of irony, Dread Trident theorizes an ironic understanding of this process and in particular of its embodied forms.
