The gay detective novel :
ISBN: 0786419571 OCLC: 56334211

"This study of gay and lesbian detective fiction examines mystery series and historically significant stand-alone novels published since the early 1960s. Part I describes how these novels make gay and lesbian life visible and forge new, powerful images. It also examines how they fit into the larger history of mystery fiction. Part II groups series according to the type of main character (police officer, private investigator, amateur sleuth, etc.). Each section discusses characters of that type and analyzes the series in which they appear. Comments from authors interviewed for this book play a central role in those analyses.

Speech recognition is becoming part of our daily lives. Hardware and software system developers, consumer product designers, researchers, and innovative computer users are creating speech recognition applications that range from voice control of dishwashers to meaningful human-computer dialogues. Using Speech Recognition is a comprehensive, unbiased examination of the speech recognition industry. It explains the technology using clear, understandable language and explores differences among existing commercial speech recognition products. Using Speech Recognition describes successful applications along with the technology and human factors involved in designing good speech recognition applications. Most chapters contain a "Technology Focus" section that explains aspects of the technology and an "Application Focus" section that addresses application-development issues.
