When the King is murdered and the Queen cast; powerful forces vie for the vacant Crown.

"Punsworth Pooter is a wonderful character. It could make an excellent film."
A fantasy novel with a thoughtful, allegorical strand. Highly imaginative and wonderfully evocative."
"The subject matter is compelling and poignant... a rich and interesting world."

"If he's gross, I'm bailing."
That's what I said to my supposed best friend when she asked me to take her place. A blind date, she said. What harm could it do?
He was charming. Beautiful. God's finest creation. He wined me and dined me. Made me do things I'd never before dreamt of in the bedroom. It was perfect. Dangerous. Arousing.

Then she whispered my damned name and invaded my world, changing its reasoning.

What do Al Campana, Frank Dempsey, Stan Wallace, Don Mullins, Gale Sayers, and Steve Trimble all have in common? They all wore number 40 for the Chicago Bears, even though more than four decades passed between the last time Campana last pulled on his jersey and the number was retired for Sayers in 1994 (along with 51 for Dick Butkus).
Since the Chicago Bears first adopted uniform numbers in 1932, the team has handed out only 99 numbers to more than 1,000 players. That's a lot of overlap. It also makes for a lot of good stories. Bears by the Numbers tells those stories for every Bear since '32, from Red Grange to Pernell McPhee. This book lists the players alphabetically and by number; these biographies help trace the history of one of football's oldest and most beloved teams in a new way.
For Bears fans, anyone who ever wore the uniform is like family. Bears by the Numbers reintroduces readers to some of their long-lost ancestors, even those they think they already know.

Having been blessed with a rich, full life, I must with all due humility confess that very little moves me anymore. I've seen and experienced the self-sacrifice and beauty that only the deepest of loves can bestow. I have been poisoned and hardened by man's inhumanity to man.
Having said that, imagine my soul-stirring surprise when my friend Danny Cole sent me, almost apologetically, the first chapter of what became this book, seeking my opinion.
The thing was, you see, Danny Cole had never before written anything in the way of books, short stories, poetry, etc. But he had something he needed to express and about halfway through his twenty-second year of sobriety he felt the time had come to express it.

Relocating from the quiet suburbs of London to the industrial northern town of Newton Escomb, to a small cul-de-sac there named Skipton Road, was already a challenge in itself for Christopher Joyce and his family -- yet, they had no idea of what malevolent horrors awaited them there.
Unbeknown to them, the Joyce's new home bore a terrible and bloody past. It was plagued by wicked entities, twisted deeds, death, and witchcraft. Although, not all was as it seemed.
Christopher was a firm sceptic of anything supernatural, as was his wife, Amy, but that would soon change after two demonic beings made their presences and sordid intentions known through many terrifying apparitions and vivid nightmares.
Already held in a vulnerable state of mind, Amy gradually succumbed to the powerful influence of these dark spirits, namely a fallen witch who possessed a desperate thirst for vengeance against men -- Sabina. As their connection grew, the bond ...

This important illustrated social history of slavery tells what life was like for bond servants in Florida from 1821 to 1865, offering new insights from the perspective of both slave and master.
Starting with an overview of the institution as it evolved during the Spanish and English periods, Larry E. Rivers looks in detail and in depth at the slave experience, noting the characteristics of slavery in the Middle Florida plantation belt (the more traditional slave-based, cotton-growing economy and society) as distinct from East and West Florida (which maintained some attitudes and traditions of Spain). He examines the slave family, religion, resistance activity, slaves' participation in the Civil War, and their social interactions with whites, Indians, other slaves, and masters.
Rivers also provides a dramatic account of the hundreds of armed free blacks and runaways among the Seminole, Creek, and Mikasuki Indians on the peninsula, whose presence created tensions leading to the great ...

The grand epic set during Napoleon's invasion of Russia: a vividly detailed view of nineteenth-century Russian life by the author of Anna Karenina.
Widely regarded as one of the greatest novels ever written, War and Peace is Leo Tolstoy's magnum opus, a groundbreaking work of literary realism, and a psychologically acute examination of Tsarist society in the Napoleonic Era. The narrative follows the fates, fortunes, loves, and betrayals of five aristocratic Russian families from an elegant soirée in 1805 Saint Petersburg to the abandoned and burning Moscow of 1812.
With a panoramic cast of characters, including peasants, soldiers, nobles, and historical figures such as Napoleon Bonaparte and Mikhail Kutuzov, Tolstoy presents a hugely ambitious portrait of the human condition. First published in 1865, this edition of War and Peace was translated into English by Louise and Alymer Maude

But with one phone call from a brash New York lawyer, Alex learns he's inherited Castle Carrick, the grandest fortress in Northern Ireland. At Carrick, strange and dark events begin to swirl ever closer to Alex, turning his hoped-for quiet life inside out. Now, he must decide: flee from Ireland and give up his inheritance... or embrace the dark power which compels him to paint wondrous, yet terrifying things.
The Fall of Castle Carrick - a suspenseful tale of solitude and sacrifice from author J Edward Neill
A woman as deep in despair as a person can be. Is it unbearable grief or unbearable guilt?
A child is missing, a baby taken away in the middle of the night. It's a life-shattering tragedy, but no one seems to care. Is it because the grieving mother is a "lowlife druggie," as the chief investigator maintains? Or is there another reason the case is given short shrift by the "good people" of James Mill?
Richard Carter, an ex-Marine suffering PTSD who has been spared prosecution for felony homicide only by a governor's pardon, consents to help the grieving mother, Molly. In doing so, he ignores the pleading of his wife, Jill, who begs him to disengage from the situation which she sees as a threat to his wounded psyche.
Will the truth, if and when he finds it, save or destroy the woman who sees Richard as her "godsend?"
What he is doing may be futile as well as unwise. It may, in fact, plunge him into clinical depression and wreck his marriage. He has given his word to ...
The book addresses a timely issue that attracts both researchers and policy-makers: the factors explaining early retirement. The study uses cutting-edge methodology to produce fresh empirical evidence that sheds a new light on the processes of leaving work and challenges occasionally the conventional wisdom on the cross-national differences in retirement ages.

Prenatal spirituality and the devolutional model of consciousness compelled by it envision a revolution in child development, parenting, mental health, and spirituality.

Provence, like the rest of France was put to the sword of Nazi Ideology. French civilians stoically continued living their lives as they had for centuries, albeit on a day to day basis. The same question remained on every Frenchman's lips - surely this cannot be happening?? But it is. That is the shocking reality...

This unique region in the south of France possessed a magic which had mysteriously attracted artists since the post Renaissance Period.

The legendary Douglas DC-3 airliner was a technological breakthrough that changed the course of both civilian and military aviation. In the 1930s, passenger air travel was expensive, uncomfortable, and frequently unreliable. That began to change with the appearance of the handsome, thoroughly modern DC-3, the twenty-one-passenger twin-engine propeller-driven creation of Donald Douglas and his young California company.
The first production models were sold to airlines for $90,000. The price climbed to $115,000 just before the United States entered the Second World War in December 1941. The new plane quickly became a favorite of passengers the world over, and it became the first truly profitable plane for the industry.
The threat posed by the coming war made the US Army realize that a military version could handle the vital troop and cargo transport capability soon to be needed. The C-47 Skytrain was born and evolved into specialized versions with many nicknames: Gooney Bird, Dakota, ...
