Death and decapitation seem to go hand in hand in the Devon village of Aller. When the first victim's head is sent floating down the river, the village's rural calm is shattered. Soon the corpses are multiplying, and the entire community is involved in the hunt for the murderer. Whilst many chase false trails, it is left to Gervase Fen, Oxford don and amateur criminologist, to uncover the sordid truth. Equal parts compelling, witty and ingenuous, this novel is a classic example of great British detective fiction. First published in 1977, Glimpses of the Moon was Edmund Crispin's ninth and final novel.

Edith Wharton’s The House of Mirth (1905) is a sharp and satirical, but also sensitive and tragic analysis of a young, single woman trying to find her place in a materialistic and unforgiving society. The House of Mirth offers a fascinating insight into the culture of the time and, as suggested by the success of recent film adaptations, it is also an enduring tale of love, ambition and social pressures still relevant today. Part of the Routledge Guides to Literature series, this volume is essential reading for all those beginning detailed study of The House of Mirth and seeking not only a guide to the novel, but a way through the wealth of contextual and critical material that surrounds Wharton’s text.

Observing the Moon is a definitive work, written as a reference book for anyone seriously interested in the Moon and its geology. It is of course a perfect companion for practical observers. Detailed and extensively illustrated chapters catalog ail the interesting lunar features visible in modest telescopes. They are preceded by a crash course in modern lunar geology - based on the vast amount we have learned during and since the Apollo missions - and are followed by chapters on photographic and CCD imaging, drawing and lunar topography. A CD-ROM accompanies this book and contains an atlas of lunar images and much more. The CD-ROM requires a PC running Windows 3.1 or higher, a minimum of 16MB (Windows 3.1), 64MB (Windows 95 up) of memory and a 2x or faster CD-ROM player.

This is not intended as an exhaustive study but as an introduction into the best produced by a handful of very capable and enjoyable authors"--

This manuscript is one of kind, nothing has ever been written like it before, the story begins in 1941 with the first memory I can date and what I remember and explains why I grew up so completely different from the majority of other children that I went to school with. I begin in Petaluma California as a small boy and continue through the years telling of the hardships, struggles and sorrows my family and relatives faced as they worked and camped in the different orchards on Highway 99 or the 101 and barely making enough money to feed them and buy gas to the next job. Then during the winter each year Dad worked on chicken ranches or such until the spring when we would start all over again. That happened until the summer of 1949 when my family settled in Yountville California and where the story ends when I joined the Navy at age seventeen on the 18th of January 1955.
