Some men are born to lead. Others, not so much... Danny Wallace was bored. Just to see what would happen, he placed a whimsical ad in a local London paper. It said, simply, 'Join Me'. Within a month, he was receiving letters and emails from teachers, mechanics, sales reps, vicars, schoolchildren and pensioners - all pledging allegiance to his cause. But no one knew what his cause was. Soon he was proclaimed Leader. Increasingly obsessed and possibly power-crazed Danny risked losing his sanity and his loyal girlfriend. But who could deny the attraction of a global following of devoted joinees? A book about dreams, ambition and the responsibility that comes with power, Join Me is the true story of a man who created a cult by accident, and is proof that whilst some men were born to lead, others really haven't got a clue.

In the genre of humour, this is a book about a television station located in the centre of Glasgow. Scottish Television Ltd. occupied an entire city block. It consisted of three studios plus one tiny continuity studio. All the administration offices were located there too. Sometimes it was a magical place to work. Other times it could drive you up the wall. I left in 1973 to spend a year at Granada Television. I never really settled in Manchester, and the opportunity of a floor manager job brought me back to STV in 1974. I was there from 1968-1973 and from 1974-2002. This book is written from the perspective of the factory floor, or perhaps that should be "studio floor". There are no boardroom matters featured. We're not interested in share prices or profit margins. The narrative never goes higher than the second floor. I was usually present at the time the anecdotes occurred. If I wasn't, then I knew and trusted someone who was.

THE FIRST LADY DARBY MYSTERY “A riveting debut…an original premise, an enigmatic heroine, and a compelling Highland setting…a book you won’t want to put down.”—New York Times bestselling author Deanna Raybourn Scotland, 1830. Following the death of her husband, Lady Darby has taken refuge at her sister’s estate, finding solace in her passion for painting. But when her hosts throw a house party for the cream of London society, Kiera is unable to hide from the ire of those who believe her to be as unnatural as her husband, an anatomist who used her artistic talents to suit his own macabre purposes.

I have referred to Time Crimes as a "haiku novel." It is short, compressed and poetic, and allows a lot of space for readers to imagine and reflect. The narrative moves along quickly; one reader commented that it is "like a film script, in that it has a tight plot and sharply delineated characters." Time Crimes is a blend of science fiction, crime thriller, love story and meditation on the meaning of time. In the course of the novel, some of the main characters travel back to the past and back to the future - not once, but three times! But as much as it is about time, Time Crimes is about the I Ching, also known as The Book of Changes. This ancient book has served as a source of divination for the Chinese for more than 3,000 years. Confucius, along with many other scholars and philosophers, used the I Ching and added his own interpretations and reflections. These contributions, compiled and organized over the centuries, have made the I Ching what it is today: a unique compendium of Chinese wisdom and tradition, the common source for both Confucian and Taoist philosophies. The ancient Chinese had a profoundly different perception of time than we do. This is reflected throughout the I Ching, which in itself is very preoccupied with time and its impact on the course of human affairs. In Time Crimes, these very old ideas are presented in a new context. The I Ching provides a system of knowledge to help one analyze and understand the pattern of events and changes in life. Through the 64 hexagrams, the authors constructed a method to aid in unlocking the secrets of the future and determining the surest way to live in harmony with prevailing circumstances. The I Ching emphasizes the cyclical nature of events, and the principle of "synchronicity," whereby coincidence becomes more than mere random accident. Moon, the central character in Time Crimes, is an expert in using the I Ching as a source of guidance and wisdom as he grapples with life's challenges and choices. It is, he says, like a stern but compassionate grandfather who dispenses good advice, common sense and caution, while suggesting ways to deal with problems that emphasize personal integrity and negate confrontation. "For lovers of self-knowledge, of wisdom," wrote C. G. Jung, the godfather of contemporary humanistic psychology, "the I Ching seems to be the right book." One of my favourite of the many comments in the I Ching about time comes from the first hexagram, "The Creative." When properly understood, it says, time is no longer a hindrance, but the means of making actual what is potential. This is a wonderful idea, as it presents time as an ally in the pursuit of enlightenment, rather than an obstacle. Ellery Littleton. Victoria, B.C. Autumn, 2004

Readers who enjoyed Letters to a Young Poet will cherish this enchanting work of fiction. Stories of God is a series of interconnected short stories in which Rilke offers his own unique understanding of the divine. Full of wonder and playfulness, and written in a simple, folktale style, these thirteen stories suggest, among other things, that God is present in our daily world and is seeking know humans as urgently as we have sought to know God. This new translation is the most lucid and lyrical translation of this work available in English. Rilke's German prose was unique in that he liked to use words in uncommon ways, employed obscure words, and sometimes invented words. Kohn'the translator of Shambhala's popular edition of Hermann Hesse's Siddharthaa has created a translation that is highly readable and enjoyable while remaining faithful to the German. Through this new translation, a new generation of readers will be able to appreciate the rare beauty, simplicity, and intriguing spiritual philosophy that have made this one of Rilke's most beloved prose works.

Frank Chin is perhaps the most instantly recognizable voice in Chinese American writing today. A self-proclaimed "transcendent Chinaman pagan heathen barbarian," Chin searches out (or stumbles on) the right people and situations, vividly recording the outcome in distinctively American terms. Here are six of his best essays, spanning the past forty years. Making his way across the U.S. to Cuba, Chin is arrested as an American spy some time between Castro's revolution and the missile crisis. He meets Ben Fee, the man who integrated San Francisco, and is introduced to Southeast Asian gangs and culture in San Diego. He discovers Chinese bachelor society along the California-Mexico border and travels to Singapore, where he speculates on the fear and suppression of Chinese culture among Chinese Singaporeans. Back at the home front, he encounters the new white racism along Interstate 5 during the Gulf War.
