Zayda Was a Cowboy Jewish Publication Society

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

The extraordinary story of how one family, and one young boy in particular, are changed forever when Zayda (Yiddish for "grandfather") comes to live with them. At first the young narrator, Bill, is resistant to all the changes in the house: Zayda spooks his friends, tries to get Bill to speak Yiddish, and demands strange foods like herring. But as Zayda starts telling Bill and his brother Danny the fascinating story of his life, a story filled with many extraordinary dangers and adventures, the boys begin to see their grandfather in a whole new light. From why, as a young boy, he was forced to flee his Russian village for America to how he eventually became a cowboy, Zayda holds the boys captive with his amazing tale. Like Zayda's grandsons, young readers -- and their parents and teachers -- will also be entranced by Zayda's saga. While the characters are fictional, Zayda's experiences are historically correct and are a colourful retelling of a fascinating yet little-known time of Jewish-American history. This book, like Zayda himself -- funny, touching, and memorable -- is destined to be a favourite of Jewish and non-Jewish children alike, teachers, librarians, and educators for many years to come.

Beyond Enkription - The Burlington Files Dolman Scott

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

The author of Beyond Enkription and the rest of The Burlington Files series is Bill Fairclough who was born in England in 1950. In 1978 he founded a niche global intelligence organisation known as "Faire Sans Dire". The series is based on Bill Fairclough's life and some of Faire Sans Dire's activities. Beyond Enkription is the first novel in the series of six novels to be published. The series covers events involving Bill, his beguiling family and his double-dealing colleagues ranging from the First World War to 9/11, the related Nisha incidents and beyond. The series even covers new revelations about the Edward Snowden affair and has been or is being written with film adaptation in mind. Nevertheless each book is or will be a standalone novel albeit each one might comprise several films and/or television series. The first novel is set in 1974 in the heart of the Cold War. It is about a wayward accountant, Edward Burlington aka Bill Fairclough. In 1974 he is unwittingly working as an agent for MI6 by night whilst auditing beans during the day and is nearly murdered not just once but four times between March and June 1974. For his own safety Edward is underhandedly despatched to work as an accountant in Nassau only to be recruited by the CIA and face more death defying moments in the Bahamas, Brazil and Haiti before the year's end. Meanwhile his family are sucked inexorably into the perfidious mess and intrigue surrounding Edward's double life and their own machinations. The repercussions of the Burlington family's activities resonate from Kinshasa to Islamabad via Washington and Westminster and back. Nothing is what it seems to be in this treacherous novel where disinformation is the norm. Beyond Enkription is a family yarn and history; a spy novel and espionage reference book; a mystery and suspense thriller and more besides: a realistic tale of a dynastic duplicitous family that knows instinctively the knack of survival. The brutal opening contrasts well with the tantalising and duplicitous Prologue yet the physicality of the opening chapter is arguably far less vicious than the cerebral scheming that ensues. The book is a distinctive memorable and realistic read full of captivating characters. Its intertwined plots would have challenged Aristotle's intellect. So, when you read it, if you don't think so then you may have lost the plot! As one connoisseur put it succinctly ... "question everything you assume isn't disinformation". Critics described Beyond Enkription as "A compelling, provocative and beguiling spy novel: a must for connoisseurs ..." and "Brutal ab initio, cerebral thereafter but forever realistic ..." As for its realism you can always contrast Bill Fairclough's past on WikiTree or LinkedIn with Edward Burlington. Just how real can you get? We hope you enjoy reading it and succeed in differentiating between fact, fiction and disinformation. Please see http://www.theburlingtonfiles.org, http://www.fairesansdire.org, http://uk.linkedin.com/in/billfairclough and http://www.wikitree.com/index.php?title=Fairclough-119&public=1 for more information ... assuming the authorities haven't closed down our websites by now and the other websites haven't tried to extinguish all evidence of knowledge of The Burlington Files!

Excerpt: Top Gear is a BAFTA and Emmy award winning British television series about motor vehicles, primarily cars. It began in 1977 as a conventional motoring magazine show. Over time, and especially since a relaunch in 2002, it has developed a quirky, humorous style. The show is currently presented by Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond and James May, and has featured three different test drivers known as The Stig. The programme is estimated to have 350 million viewers worldwide and is heavily downloaded from peer to peer file sharing services, with roughly 300,000 downloads per episode via torrent programs. First run episodes are broadcast in the United Kingdom on BBC Two, and since Series 14, also on BBC HD. Sixteen series have aired, and a seventeenth is planned for June 2011. The show has received acclaim for its visual style and presentation, as well as criticism for its content and comments made by presenters. Columnist A. A. Gill, close friend of Clarkson and fellow Sunday Times columnist, described the show as "a triumph of the craft of programme making, of the minute, obsessive, musical masonry of editing, the French polishing of colourwashing and grading". British comedian and guest of the show Steve Coogan has criticized the show- albeit somewhat tongue-in-cheek- for its lazy, adolescent humour. Jeremy Clarkson, who helped the original series reach its peak in the 1990s, along with producer Andy Wilman, successfully pitched a new format for Top Gear to the BBC, reversing a previous decision to cancel the show in 2001. The new series was first broadcast in 2002. Top Gear's studio is located at Dunsfold Aerodrome and business park in Waverley, Surrey. Top Gear uses a temporary racing circuit which was designed for the show by Lotus and is laid out on parts of Dunsfold's runways and taxiways. A large hangar is used for studio recording with a standing audience. The new series format incorporates a number of major changes from the old show. The running time was extende

Hope Springs is the epitome of small-town life-a place filled with quiet streets where families have been friends for generations, a place where not a lot changes ...until now. Janelle Evans hasn't gone back to Hope Springs for family reunions since losing her husband. But when she arrives for Christmas and learns that her grandmother is gravely ill, she decides to extend the stay. It isn't long before she runs into her first love, and feelings that have been dormant for more than a decade are reawakened. Becca Anderson is finally on the trajectory she's longed for. Having been in the ministry trenches for years, she's been recruited as the newest speaker of a large Christian women's conference. But her husband feels called to become the pastor of his late father's church in Hope Springs. Will small-town living affect her big ministry dreams? Stephanie London is married to a doctor in St. Louis and living an ideal life. When her cousin Janelle volunteers to stay in Hope Springs and care for their grandmother, she feels compelled to do the same. It's a decision that will forever change her. As these women come together, they soon recognize that healing is needed in their hearts, their families, and their churches that have long been divided along racial lines. God's plan for them in Hope Springs-and for Hope Springs itself-is bigger than they ever imagined.

By the end of Hope Springs, you'll feel as if you're cheering on members of your extended family." -Stacy Hawkins Adams, bestselling author of Coming Home and The Someday List "Tate expertly crafts an intriguing narrative that explores unrequited love, true faith, and the complicated politics of change in the Christian church ...[an] affecting tale about forgiveness and following God's call." -Publishers Weekly

Shortlisted for both the BSFA and the British Fantasy Awards for best novel. Going to the circus will never be the same again... Hellequin, last of the HawkEye military elite, is desperate to escape the legacy of Soul Food, the miraculous plant supplement that leeched the soil, destroyed his family, and instigated a bloody civil war. For a man awaiting the inevitable madness brought on by his enforced biomorph implant, there's only one choice. Run away with the circus... Drifting above a poisoned landscape, Cyber Circus and her exotic acrobats and bioengineered freaks bring a welcome splash of colour into folk's drab lives. None more so than escaped courtesan turned-dancer Desirous Nim. When Nim's freedom and her very life are threatened, Hellequin is forced to fight again. But, even united, will the weird troupe and their strange skills be enough to save Nim and keep their home aloft? That's assuming, of course, that Zan City's Blood Worms, mute stowaways, or the swarms don't manage to bring them down first... Welcome to the greatest show on Sore Earth! "Kim Lakin-Smith is not just the real thing she has a real way with words. Cyber Circus is as honestly brutal a twisted cybernetic love story as anything I've read. She makes mixing emotion with action and world building look effortless." - Jon Courtenay Grimwood "Cyber Circus is surely beyond any previous perverse riff on a carnival set in an alternate surreality. Just beware the hallucinatory dementing seductions of Kim Lakin-Smithżs inventions. An astonishing piece of work." - Ian Watson "Exotic characters, roaming a Dust Bowl ambience of 30s America, surrounded by the pervading aroma of stomped grass and burning lamp oil bring a rich atmosphere to this unique and quirky tale." - Storm Constantine "Kim Lakin-Smith's dark, lyrical prose flows towards the poetic, making you sigh with pleasure." - Graham Joyce

Have you ever wondered what happened after Jane found Mr Rochester, blinded and crippled by the fire that destroyed Thornfield Hall? After the death of his wife freed him to marry his young love, and the destruction of his home and estate forced the two of them to start life anew? Hilary Bailey answers these questions and brings in a plot of her own with this sequel to the Bronte classic. She builds a new world for the new Mrs Rochester, centred on her husband, whose sight is slowly healing and whose attitude is forever changed by being happy in love, and her young son, the joy of both his parents. For ten years after Thornfield Hall and all it stood for crumbled, Jane and Mr Rochester live in wedded bliss, spending their days in an idyllic family unit at the small manor of Ferndean. But when Mr Rochester decides to rebuild Thornfield Hall, Jane fears the ghosts that might be brought back with it, and her fears are not unfounded. Mrs Rochester rewrites Jane's 'Happily Ever After' as a twisted tale of interrupted bliss, haunting pasts, and frightening vendettas that follow the Rochesters to their newly rebuilt home. Old wounds are re-opened, grudges once thought buried resurface, and accusations abound, resulting in a mysterious, fast-paced re-imagining of a timeless favourite.
