From the F-22 Raptor, the United States’ first nearly “invisible” plane, to the F6F Hellcat, the aircraft that was responsible for turning the tide of WWII in America's favor, Smithsonian Channel’s popular series Air Warriors looks at the most extraordinary aircrafts throughout our nation’s history. The series touches on everything from the technical challenges to the tragic failures to the remarkable triumphs against enemy forces.

Accompanied by dramatic combat footage -- author, former Director of Air Force History and Museums, and former F-15 and F-4 fighter pilot Dick Anderegg can introduce viewers to some of our nation’s most amazing accomplishments in aviation, share dramatic and heroic stories of our country’s most dedicated pilots, and discuss the amazing new technology now used in military aircrafts.

Dick Anderegg was an Air Force officer for 30 years, during which he commanded an F-15 squadron, was twice a fighter group commander and twice a fighter wing vice commander. He also flew more than 170 combat missions during the Vietnam War. Following his retirement, he wrote "The Ash Warriors," a history of the Mount Pinatubo eruptions and subsequent evacuation of Clark Air Base, and "Sierra Hotel," a history of the cultural changes that occurred in the U.S. Air Force fighter force during the decade after the Vietnam War.

Kit (AnnaSophia Robb), a difficult young girl, is sent to the mysterious Blackwood Boarding School when her heated temper becomes too much for her mother to handle. Once she arrives at Blackwood, Kit encounters eccentric headmistress Madame Duret (Uma Thurman) and meets the school's only other students, four young women also headed down a troubled path. While exploring the labyrinthine corridors of the school, Kit and her classmates discover that Blackwood Manor hides an age-old secret rooted in the paranormal. Based on the classic gothic YA novel of the same name by Lois Duncan - author of "I Know What You Did Last Summer" - and produced by Stephenie Meyer (author of Twilight, The Host), DOWN A DARK HALL is a supernatural thriller directed by Rodrigo Cort├ęs (Buried), from a screenplay by Mike Goldbach and Chris Sparling, and stars AnnaSophia Robb (Soul Surfer, The Carrie Diaries), Isabelle Fuhrman (Orphan), Victoria Moroles (Teen Wolf), Noah Silver (The Tribes of Palos Verdes), Taylor Russell (TV's Falling Skies), Rosie Day (Outlander), and features a truly memorable turn by the iconic Uma Thurman (Pulp Fiction, Kill Bill: Vols. I & II).

Flynn Berry

In 2016, Flynn Berry burst onto the literary scene with her award-winning debut novel, Under the Harrow.  Bustle crowned it “the thriller of the summer” and Berry went on to win the Edgar Award for Best First Novel.  Under the Harrow was met with a chorus of acclaim from critics and readers who loved how she “imbues the classic murder mystery with rich emotional depth” and explores the “fierce, complicated love that exists between sisters” (O, the Oprah Magazine) while keeping you turning the pages.  The mystery at the heart of her second novel A DOUBLE LIFE was inspired by a notorious unsolved crime: the Lord Lucan Case, in which a British Lord attacked his wife, murdered his children’s nanny, and fled the country, never to be seen again. Berry mesmerizes the reader with the opening pages with one unforgettable image: a women running into a quiet pub, asking for help. A DOUBLE LIFE imagines a life lived in the shadow of such a crime. Just eight years old on the night of her father’s alleged attack, Claire is now a doctor in London. Determined to learn what really happened that night, she immerses herself in his abandoned life, doing whatever it takes to get close to the rich, titled families she believes helped him escape—just maybe, close enough to finally find him.  As in Under the Harrow, here again Berry “takes some of the big social struggles that have animated the feminist movement and makes them specific and personal, exploring the rippling effects of power imbalances across individual lives” (The Atlantic). A DOUBLE LIFE resonates with our current moment in its exploration of class and privilege, violence against women, and attempts to discredit and control women who speak out against it.

Rick Wilson

Republican political campaign strategist, ad maker, columnist, and commentator Rick Wilson brings his dark humor and biting analysis to confront the absurdity of American politics in the Age of Trump. Wilson mercilessly takes down Trump and exposes the damage Trump has done to the country, to the Republican Party Wilson served for decades, and to the conservative movement that has abandoned its principles for the worst president in American history. Wilson is no left-winger; he's a lifelong conservative who delivers his withering critique of Trump from the right. A leader of the Never Trump movement, he takes on his own party to warn them of the political catastrophe Trump has caused and concludes that everyone involved with Trump leaves with their reputation destroyed and their life in tatters.
Wilson unblinkingly dismantles Trump's deceptions and the illusions to which his supporters cling. He sheds light on the causes of the Trump phenomenon and identifies the guilty parties who empower and enable Trump in Washington and the news media. With punchy political analysis and pointed observations, he calls out the social conservatives who looked the other way, the race-war dead-enders who hitched a ride with Trump, and the alt-right basement dwellers who worship him.
This book is a unique, behind-the-scenes perspective from a political operative and insider who's seen it all and can deftly chronicle the tragicomic Trump story from the early campaign days, through the shock of election night, to the inconceivable train wreck of Trump's first year.
In Everything Trump Touches Dies, Rick Wilson "wields as axe dripping with his own party's blood." -Kirkus Reviews
"This differs from many Trump books in that Wilson knows where the bodies are buried. Have shovel, will exhume. Expect howls of Republican rage and Democratic delight." -Booklist
"Rick Wilson's acid wit is directed at the absurdities, excesses, and hypocrisies of President Trump and the alt-right's deformation of his once-proud Republican Party." -John Avalon, CNN Senior Political Analyst
Wilson's thirty years of political experience make him uniquely qualified to provide not only this insightful analysis of the Trump administration but also to offer an optimistic path forward for the GOP, the conservative movement, and the country.

A unique combination of insider political analysis, blunt truths, and black humor, Everything Trump Touches Dies is perfect for those on either side of the aisle who need a dose of unvarnished reality, a good laugh, and a return to sanity in American politics.

In the past few years, Fox News host Greg Gutfeld has covered everything from crazed academics, to unhinged celebrities, to the wildest election in recent history on his shows The Five and The Greg Gutfeld Show. In The Gutfeld Monologues: Classic Rants from The Five (Threshold Editions; 9781501190728; July 31, 2018), he brings together his best and favorite monologues in this funny, unconventional collection for new and longtime fans alike. Scored through with marginal edits, scratch-outs, 20/20 hindsight, and up-to-the-minute commentary on what he got wrong, this book isn't your typical anthology.
Instead, Threshold Editions editor Natasha Simons describes Gutfeld's latest as "an unconventional and laugh-out-loud madcap ride through the insanity of politics over the last several years." With his signature humor, wit, and insight, Greg explains it all in this memorable collection about some of our country's most crucial-and not so crucial-modern moments. Gutfeld himself admits, "Wherever I go, I am hit repeatedly by the same question: where can I read your monologues? It should be easy to find these little nuggets of knowledge" - well, now it is.
"I've watched every one of Gutfeld's monologues live, and I still can't wait to read them. They're that good." -Tucker Carlson, national television host
"Greg Gutfeld's monologues are actually more like dialogues: a funny, smart, sometimes crackpot conversation. I'm still laughing in awe." -Rob Long, writer and executive producer for Cheers
"If Mark Twain were alive today, he would be the oldest man in the world-but he was also be, I'm convinced, a Gutfeld fan."
-Walter Kirn, New York Timesbestselling author of Up in The Air
