From #1 New York Times bestselling author and “queen of royal fiction” (USA TODAY) Philippa Gregory—a dazzling new novel about the intriguing, romantic, and maddening Mary, Queen of Scots. Fleeing violent rebellions in Scotland, Mary looks to Queen Elizabeth of England for sanctuary. Though promised protection, Mary, perceived as a serious threat to the English crown, is soon imprisoned by her former friend as a “guest” in the house of George Talbot, Earl of Shrewsbury, and his indomitable wife, Bess of Hardwick. The newly married couple welcomes the condemned queen into their home, certain that serving as her hosts and jailers will bring them an advantage in the cutthroat world of the Elizabethan court. To their horror, they grow to realize that the task will bankrupt their estate and lose them what little favor they’ve managed to gain as their home becomes the epicenter of intrigue and rebellion against Queen Elizabeth. And Mary is not as hopeless as she appears, manipulating the earl and spinning her own web of treachery and deceit, as she sharpens her weapons to reclaim her Scottish throne—and to take over Queen Elizabeth’s of England.

A huge earthquake opens deep fracking water contaminated caverns and a huge spider creature with the head of a woman and the sting of a scorpion crawls up from the abyss and begins terrorizing and stinging and eating and killing the locals. Ground zero for the humongous chasm in the earth is the old funeral parlor owned by the family of the local sheriff, Jake Trapper. And, amazingly, not so coincidentally, the head of the giant spider woman thing bears a striking resemblance to his long lost cousin, Sara, who vanished in her thirteenth summer, some fifteen years prior, off the face of the planet. Jake Trapper must deal with his own recurring nightmares regarding his missing cousin; conquer his fear of spiders; while all the while attempting to save his relationship with the fiery woman he loves, Ellie. Attempting to mirror the world we live in, my tale explores, depicts, includes: gay, heterosexual, LGBT, even cross-species extraterrestrial characters- all of course, intended in good fun.

Canada, Australia and New Zealand inherited and adapted a monarchical framework of government, even in the absence of a resident monarch. Although steady transfer of the royal prerogative to a popularly elected executive has enabled these three former dominions to be sometimes described as "crowned republics" or "disguised republics", there was no popular drive to abandon monarchy until the 1990s, and even then the republican cause was based largely on issues of symbolism and national identity than on perceived core weaknesses in the political system. This book traces the long and sometimes subtle process of localising monarchy in the vice-regal office from the mid-twentieth century onwards, and compares the powers and functions of the Queen's surrogates with each other and with those of the monarch herself, including their recourse to the so-called "reserve powers". Among the key questions posed in this comparative study are: Can the current monarchical system be refined to the point of countering republican sentiment? Why has the republican argument gained more momentum in Australia than in Canada or New Zealand? Can a republican model retain residual monarchic elements? What is likely to be the lasting legacy of the Crown in these three strikingly similar political cultures? The author's underlying loyalties are neither firmly monarchist nor firmly republican. He is convinced, however, that the combined effects of a strong sense of national identity and an increasingly presidential style of political leadership within these three Westminster-derived systems make it difficult for contemporary governors-general (or their state and provincial colleagues)to fulfil two of their key roles-to unite and inspire the people on the one hand and to be a credible constitutional watchdog on the other.

‘Winter Queen’ is the story of a prostitute, who dares to state unhesitatingly, ‘Out of all the visitors coming to this Bungalow, someone might be my real father and someone else might be my real brother…….. It might sound unpleasant, but can you tell with certainty that none of them had not slept with me for the night in their subsequent visits?” In the story ‘Anumeya’s Self-Portrait’ Anumeya is an effeminate character, devoid of virility. He couldn’t live with deception and ultimately had to commit suicide. ‘The Eyes’ is a psychological story. Elija’s psychology was devastated. The eyes transplanted on her blind husband Nirod was donated by a jailbird and her rapist. How that strong feeling of hate towards those eyes ultimately brought separation between Elija and her husband has been beautifully narrated in the story. The story of a royal breed bitch Rocky and its high society master in ‘The Path to Freedom’ speaks of an obsession with class difference. Each story is gripping and caters to a different taste. A rickshaw-puller Sania is temporarily swayed away by the beauty of a young girl. In the end he realizes his folly to finally come back to the truth of his life; his wife, in ‘The Colours of a Rainbow’. The reader is left with pure joy of reading a great literature. The surprising end in the story ‘Grandfather’s Beloved’ will definitely blow the reader out of his wits.

Samuel Lloyd Osbourne (April 7, 1868 - 1947) was an American author and the step-son of Scottish author Robert Louis Stevenson. Osbourne was born in San Francisco to his mother Fanny Osbourne (nee Vandegrift), who would marry Stevenson in 1880 when Osbourne was 12 years old. Osbourne studied engineering at the University of Edinburgh. With Stevenson he went to Samoa where in 1897 he was appointed vice consul to represent the United States. He co-authored three books with his stepfather and provided input and ideas on others. As a boy, Lloyd and his step-father painted a map of an imaginary island, and this quickly formed the inspiration for Stevenson's classic Treasure Island.
