Terry Pratchett has earned a place in the hearts of readers the world over with his bestselling Discworld series - but in recent years he has become equally well-known and respected as an outspoken campaigner for causes including Alzheimer's research and animal rights. A Slip of the Keyboard brings together for the first time the finest examples of Pratchett's non fiction writing, both serious and surreal: from musings on mushrooms to what it means to be a writer (and why banana daiquiris are so important); from memories of Granny Pratchett to speculation about Gandalf's love life, and passionate defences of the causes dear to him.With all the humour and humanity that have made his novels so enduringly popular, this collection brings Pratchett out from behind the scenes of the Discworld to speak for himself - man and boy, bibliophile and computer geek, champion of hats, orang-utans and Dignity in Dying.

On the day following the guillotining of Antoine Laurent Lavoisier, mathematician Joseph Louis Lagrange lamented the loss of the man commonly considered the father of modern chemistry. "It took them only an instant to cut off that head," he said, "but it is unlikely that a hundred years will suffice to reproduce a similar one." Although he lived only to the age of 51, Lavoisier revolutionized the field of chemistry. He created the first modern table of chemical elements, recognized the role oxygen plays in the rusting of metals, demonstrated that water-previously considered one of the four fundamental elements-is a compound of hydrogen and oxygen, and asserted that the total weights of the products of a chemical reaction must equal the total weights of the reactants. Yet despite his remarkable importance to modern chemistry, Lavoisier's scientific work was more a hobby than a profession. In fact, because he made his living as a tax collector, his scientific work was relegated to early morning and after-dinner hours. Appropriately, the picture Poirier paints of Lavoisier is that of the whole man-not only a scientist but a successful financier, respected economist, and influential administrator as well.

Excerpt: Mulford Bateman Foster (December 25, 1888-August 28, 1978) was a man known by many as the "Father of the Bromeliad" as he was instrumental in the discovery and introduction of many new species of Bromeliad to the United States. He also devoted his life to hybridizing and contributed widely to the knowledge of the plant species. He was a man of many talents including naturalist, explorer, writer, photographer, artist, horticulturist and a well-respected landscape architect in Florida. Numerous bromeliad plants found today are named after various Foster family members and the genus Fosterella is named in honor of his work. He was born in Elmer, New Jersey to Samuel Preston Foster, Editor of the Elmer Times and Fannie Bateman a housewife with a green thumb and artistic leanings. He grew up exploring the woods around his New Jersey home under the guidance of his mother. With her inspiration, Mulford grew up making his own small gardens with the wild plants that he had gathered. He eventually started collecting snakes, lizards and other reptiles whenever he could. He attended school and graduated in 1905 as salutatorian from Elmer High School spending his free time out of doors. Mulford's father encouraged him to become educated in business, being concerned that his love of natur...

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

A collection of some of the best short fiction writing from the most famous Western author of all time. Louis L'Amour is indisputably the most famous and well-respected writer to ever work in the Western genre. His stories captured life on the frontier at its most captivating and exciting, and with well over two hundred million copies sold of his work, his characters and stories have left an indelible mark on popular culture. Home in the Valley collects six of L'Amour's short stories, written early in his career. In the title story, Steve Mehan had accomplished what man had believed to be impossible. He had taken cattle from the home range in Nevada to sell in California in the dead of winter. Now the money from the cattle is on deposit with Dake & Company, but while in Sacramento, California, he learns to his shock that the company has failed and his money is almost surely lost. There is one hope: that news of the closure hasn't yet reached a branch in faraway Portland, Oregon. The only chance to get the money back will be to beat the steamer boat carrying the news to Portland. To do that, Steve will need a long relay of horses, and he will have to be almost continuously in the saddle. L'Amour's best work conjures up a romantic, strangely compelling vision of the American West. Find out for yourself why L'Amour continues to be a household name and, even decades after his death, the gold standard for authentic Western storytelling.

Excerpt from The Knights of the Cross Hlava's heart throbbed when he thought that he would soon see his lady, for though he knew that he would never win her, just as he would never win stars from the sky, he extolled and loved her with all the soul that was in him. But he determined to go directly to Matsko, first because he was sent to him, and second because he was taking men who were to remain at Bogdanets. After Zbyshko had slain Rotgier he took his retinue, composed, according to the regulations of the Order, of ten horses and as many men. Two had gone to Schytno with the fallen knight's body, but Zbyshko, knowing the eagerness of old Matsko in seeking for settlers, sent the rest with Hlava as a gift to his uncle. The Cheh, on reaching Bogdanets, did not find Matsko. The old man had gone, as the servants informed him, with crossbow and dogs to the forest, but he returned during daylight, and, on learning that a considerable retinue had halted at his mansion, he hurried his steps so as to meet the newcomers, and offer entertainment; he was tremendously astonished at first, and, throwing his crossbow and cap on the ground, cried out, - "As God lives! they have killed him! Tell what thou knowest!" "He is not killed," answered Hlava; "he is well." When Matsko heard this he was confused somewhat and fell to panting; at last he drew a deep breath. "Praise to Christ the Lord!" said he. "Where is the man?" "He went to Malborg and sent me hither with tidings." "But why did he go to Malborg?" "For his wife." "Ah! fear the wounds of Christ, boy. What wife?" "The daughter of Yurand. There will be something to talk about, even the whole night through, but permit me, respected lord, to draw breath, for I am dreadfully roadweary, and since midnight I have lashed my beast forward." Matsko stopped inquiries for a while, though mainly because astonishment had taken speech from him. When he had recovered somewhat he shouted to the boy to throw wood on the fire and bring food, then he walked through the room, waved his hands, and talked in soliloquy, - "I cannot believe my own ears - Yurand's daughter - Zbyshko married - " About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.

Cronkite Harper Collins

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

For decades, Walter Cronkite was known as the most trusted man in America. Millions across the nation welcomed him into their homes, first as a print reporter for the United Press on the front lines of World War II, and later, in the emerging medium of television, as a host of numerous documentary programs and as anchor of the CBS Evening News, from 1962 until his retirement in 1981. Yet this very public figure, undoubtedly the twentieth century's most revered journalist, was a remarkably private man; few know the full story of his life. Drawing on unprecedented access to Cronkite's private papers as well as interviews with his family and friends, Douglas Brinkley now brings this American icon into focus as never before. Brinkley traces Cronkite's story from his roots in Missouri and Texas through the Great Depression, during which he began his career, to World War II, when he gained notice reporting with Allied troops from North Africa, D-day, and the Battle of the Bulge. In 1950, Edward R. Murrow recruited him to work for CBS, where he covered presidential elections, the space program, Vietnam, and the first televised broadcasts of the Olympic Games, as both a reporter and later as an anchor for the evening news. Cronkite was also witness to - and the nation's voice for - many of the most profound moments in modern American history, including the Kennedy assassination, Apollos 11 and 13, Watergate, the Vietnam War, and the Iran hostage crisis. Epic, intimate, and masterfully written, Cronkite is the biography of an extraordinary American life, told by one of our most brilliant and respected historians.

Flying Hours Fighting High

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Squadron Leader Andrew Patrick Millar's Distinguished Service Order citation attests to his 'superb leadership', and 'excellent example and personal achievements' that were 'largely responsible for the high standard and efficiency' of his squadron. The Flying Hours is Squadron Leader Millar's candid and retrospective personal account of his experiences while serving as a pilot with the Royal Air Force and commanding No. 20 Squadron in the Far East during the Second World War battle against the Japanese. Utilising notes made at the time and his comprehensive logbook Andrew Millar's gripping prose describes the trials and tribulations of mounting combat operations against the Japanese while based in India and Burma, firstly in Westland Lysanders and then piloting Hawker Hurricanes. The No. 20 Squadron motto was facta non verba (actions not words) and Andrew Millar was clearly a well respected man of action. The award of the Distinguished Flying Cross and the Distinguished Service Order are testament to the fact that a young man, who read medicine prior to volunteering for the Royal Air Force, became a highly skilled pilot who led by example. Incorporating previous unpublished photographs The Flying Hours recalls in detail Andrew Millar's operations against the enemy, the strains of combat, and the hardships and difficulties under which his squadron lived, along with the inter-personal relationships, and the minutiae of life. The brutal and uncompromising fighting in Burma has often been described as the 'Forgotten War'. We are fortunate that Squadron Leader Andrew Millar's memoir ensures that one crucial element of the Far East air war is no longer 'forgotten'.

Mayor of Casterbridge Penguin

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

A haunting study of guilt and lost love in "Penguin Classics", Thomas Hardy's "The Mayor of Casterbridge" is edited with an introduction and notes by Keith Wilson. In a fit of drunken anger, Michael Henchard sells his wife and baby daughter for five guineas at a country fair. Over the course of the following years, he manages to establish himself as a respected and prosperous pillar of the community of Casterbridge, but behind his success there always lurk the shameful secret of his past and a personality prone to self-destructive pride and temper. Subtitled "A Story of a Man of Character", Hardy's powerful and sympathetic study of the heroic but deeply flawed Henchard is also an intensely dramatic work, tragically played out against the vivid backdrop of a close-knit Dorsetshire town. This edition includes an introduction, chronology of Hardy's life and works, the illustrations for the original serial issue, place names, maps, glossary, full explanatory notes as well as Hardy's prefaces to the 1895 and 1912 editions. Thomas Hardy (1840-1928), born Higher Brockhampton, near Dorchester, originally trained as an architect before earning his living as a writer. Though he saw himself primarily as a poet, Hardy was the author of some of the late eighteenth century's major novels: "The Mayor of Casterbridge" (1886), "Tess of the D'Urbervilles" (1891), "Far from the Madding Crowd" (1874), and "Jude the Obscure" (1895). Amidst the controversy caused by "Jude the Obscure", he turned to the poetry he had been writing all his life. In the next thirty years he published over nine hundred poems and his epic drama in verse, "The Dynasts". If you enjoyed "The Mayor of Casterbridge", you might like George Eliot's "Silas Marner", also available in "Penguin Classics". "The greatest tragic writer among the English novelists".
