Once Is Not Enough
Once Is Not Enough is the third novel by Jacqueline Susann, following her huge best sellers Valley of the Dolls and The Love Machine. With Once Is Not Enough, Susann became the first writer in publishing history to have three consecutive #1 novels on the New York Times best seller list; the young and beautiful January Wayne, daughter of stage and film producer Mike Wayne, returns home to New York City after being hospitalized in Switzerland for nearly three years. But home is not: the world which January knew has changed considerably; as the naive January finds her way in this brave new world, she encounters such mortal souls as Deirdre Milford Granger, the fifth richest woman in the world, as well as Deirdre's virile young cousin, David Milford. In the mix is Karla, the reclusive former movie queen who has more than one secret of her own. It's a world of money and spiritual incest, of drugs and frontal nudity, in a complex story which reflects the social upheavals of the late 1960s and early 1970s.
Jacqueline Susann called the novel The Big Man, but changed her mind after visiting comedian Joe E. Lewis on his deathbed. Lewis, who had famously said, "You only live once - but if you work it right, once is enough," reconsidered, for he told Susann, "Once is not enough."Susann was diagnosed with cancer two months before the book's scheduled publication date. Her usual efforts at promotion—including a grueling book tour—had to be curtailed, but Susann soldiered on. She left Doctors Hospital after a blood transfusion, did the show, walked around the corner, got into an ambulance and went back to the hospital.”Susann was candid about the theme of the book, stating that it was one of "mental and spiritual incest." After her death, film critic Andrew Sarris pointed out that "If there is any single key to the oeuvre of Jacqueline Susann it is to be found in an extended Electra complex."Susann dedicated the book to her father, Robert Susann, to her husband. The book, published by William Morrow on March 20, 1973, met with negative reviews, as was typical for a Susann novel.
A writer for The New York Times complained that the book had "nearly 500 monotonous pages," populated by "a cast of obscure, implausible, stupid or sly characters lurk in the mind for weeks only because one wants to meet and kick them." But sales were enormous: the book spent 36 weeks on the New York Times best seller list, with eight of those weeks at #1. It became the second highest-selling novel of 1973, behind only Jonathan Livingston Seagull by Richard Bach. In 1975, Paramount Pictures released a film adaptation, Jacqueline Susann's Once Is Not Enough, directed by Guy Green and written by Julius J. Epstein. Starring Kirk Douglas as Mike Wayne, Alexis Smith as Deirdre Milford Granger, Melina Mercouri as Karla, Deborah Raffin as January, the film was produced by Howard W. Koch and executive-produced by Susann's husband, Irving Mansfield; the musical score was composed by Henry Mancini. The film received negative reviews. Despite the reviews, the film was a commercial success. Brenda Vaccaro, as Linda Riggs, received an Oscar nomination for her performance

Strike Witches is a mixed-media project created by Fumikane Shimada via a series of magazine illustration columns. The franchise has since been adapted into several light novel and anime series and various video games; the series revolves around teenage girls who use machines attached to their legs to do aerial combat.

On an alternate Earth during the World War II era, the world has been invaded by a mysterious alien force known as the Neuroi who take on forms similar to aircraft and spread a corrosive miasma; as a result, the armed forces of the world have allied together to combat the Neuroi threat instead of fighting among themselves. As normal humans have no effect against the Neuroi's technology, the military instead calls upon Witches, young girls who possess magical abilities capable of fighting against the Neuroi.
The Witches, who are inspired by famous real-life pilots, grow animal ears and tails when using their magic, can use special machines known as Striker Units, which feature designs based on real-life aircraft, to fly through the sky and increase the strength of their magical ability in combat.
