Opis - 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.

Searching her mind for a way to stay free to pursue the kind of love she has always dreamt of, she happens upon a good plan. What if she could prove to her straight-laced father that the man he means for her is not only an unsuitable husband, but a philandering rake too? With the Marquis's reputation for love affairs with beautiful, seductive and preferably married women well known in Society, surely this would not prove too difficult?

Throwing herself upon the charity and good nature of her notorious cousin Ingrid, whose scandalous love affair has already rocked polite English Society, she heads for Paris alone. Delighted at how quickly she has escaped and enjoying the freedom of her adventure, Loretta determines to find out more about the Marquis and wastes no time in seeking him out.

An ordinary boy with an ordinary life stands accused of killing the next president of the United States. WHAT HAPPENED? Dr Paul Allen is a well-respected man. He lives a happy, comfortable life with his second wife and their family. Until the night when a knock at the door blows his world apart: a hugely popular presidential candidate has been shot, and they say the young man who pulled the trigger is Paul's son. Daniel, the only child from his first, failed marriage, was always a good kid and Paul is convinced his quiet boy is not capable of murder. Overwhelmed by a vortex of feelings, Paul embarks on a mission to understand what happened and why. Following the trail of his son's journey across America, he is forced to re-examine his life as a husband and a parent, and every decision he ever made. What follows is a powerfully emotional and suspense-filled quest that keeps you guessing to the very end. 'Monsters don't just become monsters, after all.'
Lavoisier University of Pennsylvania Press
Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna
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.
Home in the Valley Skyhorse Publishing
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.
Knights of the Cross (Classic Reprint) Forgotten Books
Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna
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.

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". (Virginia Woolf). "Visceral, passionate, anti-hypocrisy, anti-repression...Hardy reaches into our wildest recesses". ("Evening Standard").
