Set in the near future of 2020, this disconcerting philosophical fantasy depicts an America devastated by a war with China that has left its populace decimated, its government a shambles, and its natural resources tainted. The hero is Ben Turnbull, a sixty-six-year-old retired investment counselor, who, like Thoreau, sticks close to home and traces the course of one Massachusetts year in his journal. Something of a science buff, he finds that his disrupted personal history has been warped by the disjunctions and vagaries of the “many-worlds” hypothesis derived from the indeterminacy of quantum theory. His identity branches into variants extending back through the past and forward into the evolution of the universe, as both it and his own mortal, nature-haunted existence move toward the end of time.

Jane Austen's brilliant satire of the gothic novel. The most sprightly and satirical of Austen's novels, Northanger Abbey was written when the author was herself in her early twenties, and takes for its heroine seventeen-year-old Catherine Morland, a spirited young woman preoccupied with the pleasures of dressing, dancing, and reading sensational novels. But when she visits Northanger Abbey, the ancestral home of handsome Henry Tilney, Catherine's taste in books comes back to haunt her. The rambling house full of locked doors and the family's mysterious history give rise to delightfully dreadful suspicions, and finally only Catherine's sweet nature and good humor triumph over her susceptibility. A sly commentary on the power of literature as well as a cautionary tale about the perils of naïveté, Northanger Abbey is a fresh and funny tale of one young woman receiving, as Margaret Drabble reveals in her illuminating introduction, "intensive instruction in the ways of the world." With an Introduction by Margaret Drabble and an Afterword by Stephanie Laurens From the Paperback edition.

The swallows have always feared Winter. For them it is a time of dying and decay. A time they have always fled from, seeking the warmth and safety of the southlands. But this year is to be different. The swallows' wise and venerable leader, Creakwing, announces that he is now too old and infirm to undertake the epic journey across thousands of miles of land and sea. He intends to remain in the northlands during the cold dark months of Winter and try to survive alone. Knowing that for him this will mean almost certain death, a group of young swallows devise a daring plan to rescue their leader. Many other birds are enlisted to help in the plan. Among them, the thieving jackdaws, a captive yellow bird, a brilliantly ingenious blue tit, a wise old owl who is not as wise as he thinks he is.... and finally, out in the icy wastes of ocean the mysterious storm petrels. There will be triumph and tragedy during the long and dangerous journey, an epic Crossing about which the bardic swallows will tell tales and sing songs for generations to come. 'Creakwing's Crossing' is a stirring tale in a literary tradition stretching from Kenneth Grahame's 'The Wind in The Willows' to 'Watership Down' by Richard Adams in the present day. It is also a tale to remind us that though the boundaries created by Man continue to create tensions and conflict, the natural world observes no frontiers, and the swallows continue to move through the sky as freely as they have always done, in the ancient mystery of migration.

This is the first in the series of cases involving Inspector Morimoto and his assistant, Officer Suzuki, a young mathematics graduate from Tokyo University. With over twenty-five years experience, Morimoto is not easily surprised, but the dead man's coin locker is just the first of several surprises that Morimoto encounters in this case. Furthermore, Morimoto is puzzled because he cannot find the dead man's umbrella, and he also wants to know why Special Branch from Tokyo is investigating the dead man's company. Moreover, why does the waitress at the Bamboo Haven restaurant provide a different explanation each time they meet, and is there any connection with the baseball game that took place in the Osaka Dome at the time of the murder? Everything points to an assassination by the criminal syndicates, but Morimoto and Suzuki are not convinced. Using her powers of deductive reasoning, Suzuki helps Morimoto develop a hypothesis that involves espionage, secretive trips on the bullet train, deception, and double deception. Morimoto knows that a provincial inspector such as himself does not impress the Special Branch investigator-especially not when all Morimoto appears to be doing is collecting umbrellas-but perhaps Morimoto will have the last laugh?

In the hottest summer for half a century, someone kidnaps Beryl Websdell’s garden gnome, leaving a ransom note demanding half a pound of jelly babies for its return. Beryl is upset, and so are her neighbours in the rural Suffolk village where she lives, because the gnome disappeared three days after her daughter also went missing. Beryl doesn’t think her daughter has been kidnapped . . . not really . . . but she is worried. And so are the police. Inspector Martin Tait is holidaying in the neighbourhood at the time, visiting his elderly Aunt Con form whom he hopes one day to inherit a lot of money. That, when it happens, will suit his plans to become a very young and very wealthy Chief Constable . . . and perhaps to marry Alison, pretty daughter of Detective Chief Inspector Quantrill, his ex-boss? But two things happen to jolt Martin Tait out of his pleasant holiday day-dreams: he finds a body in an empty cottage of his Aunt’s; and Aunt Con later confronts him with some shattering information. . . This is the fifth in Sheila Radley’s highly successful series of crime novels featuring Douglas Quantrill, his family and colleagues, and set in the Suffolk countryside. She has a novelist’s eye for character and motive, as well as landscape, and she waves the strands of the story – love, yearning, terror, grief, bitterness and suspicion – into a subtle, engrossing, and satisfying whole.
