Released: 20-12-2012

An insightful journey into the friendship between Barney Van Valin, a rural farmland physician and music icon, Michael Jackson.

You will read of the absence of memorabilia in his home from gold records to photographs of world dignitaries and his candid view of such acknowledgements; the nightly menu at the Neverland dinner table; the origin of the Moonwalk dance; his curiosity of the deceased that had him at Barney's mother's death bed; Michael's ghost; mystery behind 'Billie Jean'; and his candid opinion of his father, Joe, and mother, Katherine.

Earth Song (2nd Edition) Book CoverEarth Song (2nd Edition) [Book]
Released: 10-12-2012

On December 10, there is a new edition released of the book 'Earth Song' written by Joseph Vogel.

Fully and revised and updated! When Michael Jackson's 'Earth Song' was released in in the mid-90's, critics had a difficult time understanding it. It didn’t fit into conventional frames. Its unusual fusion of blues, opera, gospel, and rock, sounded like nothing on the radio. It defied the cynicism of Generation X. It subverted expectations for traditional anthems. In place of nationalism, it envisioned a world without borders or hierarchies. In place of dogma or anthropocentric humanism, it yearned for a broader vision of ecological harmony and sustainability. In place of simplistic propaganda for a cause, it was a genuine artistic expression.

A massive hit around the world (reaching #1 in over fifteen countries), 'Earth Song' was not even offered as a single in the United States. Yet nearly twenty years later, this six-and-a-half minute lamentation stands as one of Jackson s greatest artistic achievements.

In this groundbreaking monograph, Joseph Vogel details the song's evolution from its inception in Vienna in 1988, to never-before-heard stories from the recording studio, to its controversial release and reception. Based on original research, including interviews with the song's key participants, 'Earth Song: Inside Michael Jackson s Magnum Opus' offers a fascinating reassessment of one of Jackson's most powerful works.

Untouchable: The Strange Life And Tragic Death Of Michael Jackson (Book)
Released: 13-11-2012

Untouchable: The Strange Life And Tragic Death Of Michael Jackson Book CoverIn a sweeping biography of unprecedented depth, author Randall Sullivan examines the life and death of one of the world’s most prominent and misunderstood stars: Michael Jackson.

Beginning with his final departure from Neverland, 'Untouchable' takes readers through Jackson’s final four years, as he shuttled from California to the Middle East, Ireland, Asia, the East Coast, and Las Vegas, planning to recapture his wealth and reputation with a comeback album and a series of fifty mega-concerts, for which he was rehearsing until the day before his death.

Sullivan also delves deep into Jackson’s past, and the man that emerges is both naive and deeply cunning, a devoted father whose parenting decisions created international outcry, a shrewd businessman whose successes blew up in his face and whose failures nearly brought down a megacorporation, and an inveterate narcissist who wanted more than anything a quiet, solitary, normal life. Sullivan has never-before-reported information about Jackson’s business dealings and the pedophilia allegations that irreparably marked his reputation, and exclusive access to inner-circle figures including Jackson’s former attorney and business manager. The result is a remarkable portrait of Michael Jackson, a man of uncountable contradictions who continues to reign as the King of Pop.

Offered is an in depth look at the accusations of child molestation levied against Michael Jackson in 1993 and again ten years later resulting in the “Trial of the Century”. Campbell follows his steps toward presenting 'This is It', the events leading to his tragic loss, and the trial and conviction of Dr. Conrad Murray.

Was Michael Jackson Framed? The Untold Story That Brought Down A Superstar (Paperback)
Released: 04-10-2012

Was Michael Jackson Framed? The Untold Story That Brought Down a Superstar Paperback CoverThe original GQ story that became an international sensation by exploring, for the first time in the media, the other side—the defense side-- of the 1993 Michael Jackson scandal. Today, it remains a sought-after story by the superstar’s fans around the world.

Until now, the original, unedited version of the GQ article has not been available. Now, three years after Michael Jackson’s death, in the midst of a resurgence of his music and popularity, the official GQ story is being released, with a new cover and foreword written by the author, award-winning journalist Mary A. Fischer.

As the media rushed to judgment about the ’93 allegations—that Jackson had molested a 13-year-old boy—no one bothered to look in depth at Jackson’s adult accusers. GQ senior writer Mary A. Fischer, known for investigating controversial, under-reported stories, took on the assignment.

She spent months delving into the backgrounds of Evan Chandler and his attorney Barry K. Rothman, Jackson’s main accusers. What emerged from Fischer’s examination, based on court documents, business records and scores of interviews, some with confidential sources who would only meet in out of the way places, was a persuasive argument that Jackson molested no one and that he himself may have been the victim of a well-conceived plan to extract money from him.

More than that, it was a classic story of greed, ambition, misconceptions on the part of police and prosecutors, a lazy and sensation-seeking media and the use of a powerful, hypnotic drug.

Today, it remains an important, relevant story about how a case was simply invented. And now, for the first time in over a decade, it is available to Michael Jackson fans everywhere.
