Michael Williams has spent the past year travelling along the fascinating rail byways of Britain for this new collection of journeys. Here is the 'train to the end of the world' running for more than four splendid hours through lake, loch and moorland from Inverness to Wick, the most northerly town in Britain. He discovers a perfect country branch line in London's commuterland, and travels on one of the slowest services in the land along the shores of the lovely Dovey estuary to the far west of Wales. He takes the stopping train across the Pennines on a line with so few services that its glorious scenery is a secret known only to the regulars. Here, too, is the Bittern Line in Norfolk and the Tarka Line in North Devon as well as the little branch line to the fishing port of Looe in Cornwall, rescued from closure in the 1960s and now celebrating its 150th anniversary taking families on holiday to the seaside. From the most luxurious and historic - aboard the Orient Express - to the most futuristic - on the driverless trains of London's Docklands Light Railway - here is a unique travel companion celebrating the treasures of our railway heritage from one of Britain's most knowledgeable railway writers.

This beautifully-packaged book will take the reader on the slow train to another era when travel meant more than hurrying from one place to the next, the journey meaning nothing but time lost in crowded carriages, condemned by broken timetables. On the Slow Train will reconnect with that long-missed need to lift our heads from the daily grind and reflect that there are still places in Britain where we can stop and stare. It will tap into many things: a love of railways, a love of history, a love of nostalgia. This book will be a paean to another age before milk churns, porters and cats on seats were replaced by security announcements and Burger King. These 12 spectacular journeys will help free us from what Baudelaire denounced as 'the horrible burden of time.' Updated for the paperback.

Tears are the perfect place for you to start healing. Dealing with the dreaded diagnosis and planning your prognosis. Ovarian cancer is not silent, there are signs and symptoms. Don’t own cancer by saying “I have cancer” or “My cancer.” Will you go the conventional or the alternative route? There’s a difference between a good doctor and a great doctor. The choices, challenges and changes of chemotherapy treatment. Getting used to bald being beautiful and wearing a wig. Life is like a movie and, temporarily, you may not be in it. If you don’t have a wellness programme, you should create one. Do you feel you fit the cancer profile? On a cancer journey, you die to your old life and are born again. Your recovery is individual, it won’t fit a schedule. There are things family and friends should know. Try to keep in touch with ‘Champs’, no matter what. You’ll be showered with gifts from the Universe and friends. You’ll be grateful for chemo pals, ‘sisters’ and carers. It hurts when someone doesn’t know how to be there for you. The pain of losing a friend to cancer. Strategies for dealing with depression. You’ll be wrapped in light, grace and good energy. In time, you may feel grateful for the cancer journey. Is cancer a gift?

"God is dead," Nietzsche famously declared in The Gay Science; but this book will investigate God's surprising persistence and resurrection in the works of even the most seemingly atheistic of writers, who continue to deploy Judaic and Christian narratives and tropes even as they radically rewrite them in the face of new cultural, political, and scientific imperatives. Contributors to Figures of Heresy explore the range, power, and implication of Christian and Jewish heresies in canonical Anglo-American writers-including Edgar Allan Poe, Thomas Hardy, Robert Louis Stevenson, T. S. Eliot, John Steinbeck, and Jim Crace-as well as in some less familiar texts: the Mormon scriptures of Joseph Smith and various Victorian rewritings of the Book of Esther. A polemical essay by Michelene Wandor reflects on conceptions of Jewishness, which she finds in need of heretical renewal. Valentine Cunningham's provocative introduction argues that the acts of literary writing and reading are necessarily heretical. A coda to the book, Between Heresy and Superstition, takes as its motto Thomas Huxley's observation in 1881 that "It is the customary fate of new truths to begin as heresies and to end as superstitions." Contributions offer readers a rare opportunity of witnessing an extended academic exchange, exploring the process by which former heresies may indeed risk ossification as new kinds of doctrinal conformity. In debating the politics and theology of Bob Dylan's Christian Albums, Bryan Cheyette and Kevin Mills also raise important questions of orthodoxy and dissent in our critical practice. The revitalization of heresy in literary interpretations, as well as in our religious thinking, forms the guiding objective of this exciting critical book.
