SPIES IN THE SKY is the thrilling, little-known story of the partner organisation to the famous code-breaking centre at Bletchley Park. It is the story of the daring reconnaissance pilots who took aerial photographs over Occupied Europe during the most dangerous days of the Second World War, and of the photo interpreters who invented a completely new science to analyse those pictures. They were inventive and ingenious; they pioneered the development of 3D photography and their work provided vital intelligence throughout the war. With a whole host of colourful characters at its heart, from the legendary pilot Adrian 'Warby' Warburton, who went missing while on a mission, to photo interpreters Glyn Daniel, later a famous television personality, and Winston Churchill's daughter, Sarah, SPIES IN THE SKY is compelling reading and the first full account of the story of aerial photography and the intelligence gleaned from it in nearly fifty years.

SPIES IN THE PROMISED LAND takes a dramatic episode from the Bible (the Book of Numbers) and brings it to life in a vibrant way. Numbers is one of the most overlooked books of the Bible, yet it offers some of the most dramatic material, including the story of the 12 spies’ excursion into the land of Israel and the subsequent conflict that their disastrous report would bring upon the fledgling nation of Israel. As a result of their report, the nation of Israel would be banned from entering the land, and forced to wander the desert for another 40 years. The Biblical story also offers great warrior-heroes in the characters of Caleb (the protagonist), and Joshua, who were both spies on the expedition. SPIES IN THE PROMISED LAND is a moving, literary and powerful work of fiction which brings the Biblical book of Numbers to life for the first time. It is a must-read for both readers of the Bible and for the general audience that loved historical fiction like THE RED TENT.

One moment Joseph Schwartz is a happily retired tailor in Chicago, 1949. The next he's a helpless stranger on Earth during the heyday of the first Galactic Empire. Earth, as he soon learns, is a backwater, just a pebble in the sky, despised by all the other 200 million planets of the Empire because its people dare to claim it's the original home of man. And Earth is poor, with great areas of radioactivity ruining much of its soil--so poor that everyone is sentenced to death at the age of sixty. Joseph Schwartz is sixty-two. This is young Isaac Asimov's first novel, full of wonders and ideas, the book that launched the novels of the Galactic Empire, culminating in the Foundation series. This is Golden Age SF at its finest. At the Publisher's request, this title is being sold without Digital Rights Management Software (DRM) applied.
