Airship Shape & Bristol Fashion brings together tales from the light and dark sides of steampunk. Living ghosts, walking ferns and ingenious androids populate visions of the city of Bristol at once familiar and peculiar. Above them soar magnificent men, and women, in their flying machines. Whether they are seeking release, revenge or adventure, the characters in these stories will draw you down the side-streets of Bristol to the brass and steam-filled worlds you never dreamed were there. Take a walk around Bristol, and history seeps from the walls. The city can claim more than its fair share of firsts, including the first iron-hulled steamship, the first female doctor, the first chocolate bar and the first use of nitrous oxide as an anaesthetic, the invention of the Plimsoll line, the first undersea telegraph cable, the world’s first test tube baby and the first transplant organ grown from stem cells, and a large share of the world’s first supersonic airliner. Now, from this fertile ground comes an anthology charting other realities and alternate histories, in a collection as rich and varied as the true history of this great British city. — Gareth L. Powell

A sequel to the popular Airship Shape & Bristol Fashion. Steampunk fiction from the South-West of England. In this anthology our authors once again challenge the notion that steampunk looks back on Victoriana through rose-tinted goggles. Still rooted in Bristol, these stories stretch out across greater distances, through time and space, through danger and adversity, to explore ideas of Empire and adventure. Some are funny, some are dark, and each of them will take you somewhere - or somewhen - you've never been before.

It's a great gift for any sailor or lover of language. "Entertaining and informative." — The Washington Post.

While J.T. Silence is away at war, a man he trusts betrays him. When Silence returns, he finds his wife murdered. Now, he's out for vengeance-and he intends to kill Silas Brady for what he's done, no matter how long it takes to find him. A wealthy rancher, Frank Decker, buys Brady's willingness to use a gun. But Silence knows Brady can't hide forever, and when the man from his past crosses him again, he takes action.The killing of an entire Jewish family on their way to settle their claim, and violent threats against Silence's old friends, add up to more than a coincidence. When Silence discovers the plan the railroad has to lay track across the very land the settlers were killed for, he knows he has to see Decker and his henchman, Brady, dead.With only a young emigrant boy and Judge Henderson's apprentice to help him, Silence vows to see the boy claim his land his family gave their lives for-but first, he's got to kill Brady and Decker. And though SILENCE RIDES ALONE, there's a young woman who is determined to do what she can to help the man she loves...

Roget S International Thesaurus 7th Edition

A classic reference book that has been used by millions all over the world, Roget’s International Thesaurus is the product of more than a century and a half of continual expansion, reorganization, and improvement. Today this book is not only the most time-tested and bestselling thesaurus ever, but, newly revised, it is also the most up-to-date and comprehensive reflection of the English language as it is currently used. The revolutionary achievement of Dr. Peter Mark Roget’s first edition in 1852 was the development of a brand-new principle: the arrangement of words and phrases according to their meanings. Dr. Roget’s system brings together in one place all the terms associated with a single thought or concept; it allows a wide-ranging survey of language within a book of relatively modest size, without the space-consuming repetitions that so severely limit the scope of thesauruses arranged in a dictionary format with A-to-Z entries. This brilliant organization makes Roget’s International Thesaurus both the most efficient word finder and a cutting-edge aid in stimulating thought, organizing ideas, and writing and speaking more clearly and effectively. This revised and updated seventh edition features thousands of new words and phrases, including the newest slang words and expressions that color and inform everyday language. At the same time, it retains all the hallmarks that have made Roget’s International Thesaurus the most popular word reference book next to the dictionary.
