A brand new comedy about science and ethics by "a new young dramatist of exceptional wit and promise for the future" - Daily Telegraph "No, really, who needs evolution when you have plastic surgery?" Malibu, California. The present. Charles Darwin has wound up in a beach house overlooking the Pacific with a girl young enough to be his daughter. One hundred and forty-five years have passed since the publication of The Origin of Species, and over a hundred and twenty years since Darwin's own death. But his peace is rudely disturbed when his old friend Thomas Huxley washes up on the beach, closely followed by the Bishop of Oxford. Darwin suddenly finds himself entangled in a sparkling comedy of life and death, love and loss, and the sex lives of hermaphroditic barnacles. Darwin in Malibu premiered at Birmingham Repertory Theatre where it was nominated for the TMA Award for Best New Play. "Fiercely intelligent...an exceptionally spry play, with big ideas and a big heart. You should see it - not just because it's there, but because we are here. Along with the barnacles and stars." Guardian

Gary Hawkins is walking with his dogs in a Malibu park when he happens upon an abandoned pickup truck. Stuffed inside a rug in the back of the truck is the body of a local resident.

Several weeks later, Gary learns his high school friend has been killed in a drive-by shooting, a Malibu buddy has allegedly committed suicide, and another friend from his past has been killed in a car accident outside of Las Vegas. Distrusting of the abilities of local authorities, Gary begins his own investigation that soon leads him to suspect that the young wife of his friend who died in the car accident is somehow connected to the tragedies. When he uncovers a link between the deaths and a fateful night from his own past, Gary discovers the killer is harboring a shocking secret that will rock his world and explain everything. In this gripping story, a Malibu real estate agent turned amateur detective embarks on a dangerous journey to solve the mystery behind the deaths of three of his friends.

The African stories reflect Harrison's long preoccupation with that continent and add a new dimension to this turbulent setting. "On Location" presents an untamed view of the great continent. In each bizarre scenario, a director or an actor tries, with the help of a technical adviser, to capture the "essence" of Africa, whether that be the power of the Congo or the murderous skills of a wild leopard.

"A true story of the battle for paradise…men and women fighting for a slice of earth like no other." —New York Times Book Review Frederick and May Rindge, the unlikely couple whose love story propelled Malibu’s transformation from an untamed ranch in the middle of nowhere to a paradise seeded with movie stars, are at the heart of this story of American grit and determinism. He was a Harvard-trained confidant of presidents; she was a poor Midwestern farmer’s daughter raised to be suspicious of the seasons. Yet the bond between them would shape history. The newly married couple reached Los Angeles in 1887 when it was still a frontier, and within a few years Frederick, the only heir to an immense Boston fortune, became one of the wealthiest men in the state. After his sudden death in 1905, May spent the next thirty years fighting off some of the most powerful men in the country—as well as fissures within her own family—to preserve Malibu as her private kingdom. Her struggle, one of the longest over land in California history, would culminate in a landmark Supreme Court decision and lead to the creation of the Pacific Coast Highway. The King and Queen of Malibu traces the path of one family as the country around them swept off the last vestiges of the Civil War and moved into what we would recognize as the modern age. The story of Malibu ranges from the halls of Harvard to the Old West in New Mexico to the beginnings of San Francisco’s counter culture amid the Gilded Age, and culminates in the glamour of early Hollywood—all during the brief sliver of history in which the advent of railroads and the automobile traversed a beckoning American frontier and anything seemed possible.

The publication of this interesting, scholarly and informative story of the famous Malibu Potteries was an exciting new venture for the Malibu Lagoon Museum. Because of the evergrowing interest in these beautiful and now rare decorative tiles, the Museum felt mandated to produce this book. The authors are not only the researchers, historians and compilers of the background and history of the Malibu Potteries but custodians and exhibitors of one of the largest single depositories of Malibu tile as represented in the historic Adamson home on our grounds as well as in the Museum. Technical ceramic associations and societies, industry affiliates, architectural groups, and ceramic scholars have encouraged us to publish this book. We have provided a comprehensive picture of what is considered some of the finest decorative ceramic art to be found anywhere. The Malibu Potteries is now long gone, destroyed by fire in 1932, and never rebuilt, but this book will always remain as testimony to its renowned existence and reputation and its contribution to ceramic history.
