Geister der Vergangenheit suchen Walter Van Brunt an seinem 22. Geburtstag heim, und die Gedenktafel, gegen die er dann in der Nacht, betrunken und bekifft, mit seinem Motorrad rast, verweist auf ein Ereignis, das weit zurückliegt - und das auch mit Walter zu tun hat. Fortan macht er sich auf die Suche nach seinem verstorbenen Vater: Truman Van Brunt hat 20 Jahre zuvor, bei den berüchtigten Unruhen von Peterskill, der Gegenseite in die Hände gespielt und seine Frau in den Tod getrieben. Und die gleiche unheilvolle Geschichte von Treuebruch und Verrat hat sich vor noch viel längerer Zeit schon einmal zugetragen. Von den gleichen Geistern getrieben wie seine Vorfahren, muss Walter am Ende seinen eigenen Verrat teuer bezahlen. Mit immenser Phantasie, Sinn für schwarzen Humor und Überwirkliches hat Boyle eine dunklere Lesart der Geschichte Amerikas geschrieben.

When Eric Albright, a luckless London slacker, and his pal Stuart Casey went through a battered red door under a railway bridge, the last thing they expected to find was another world. There lay the strange, dark realm of Levaal, whose tyrant lord Vous has ascended to godhood. The great wall which has divided the land has been brought down, setting loose a horde of demonic Tormentors. In their sky prisons, the dragons are stirring, set to defy their slumbering creator and steal humanity's world. Shilen, a dragon cloaked in human form, has convinced Eric and Aziel, Vous's daughter, to help free the dragons from their sky-prison, or Earth will be destroyed. She promises great power, and safety for all Eric's favoured people, but Shilen has an ulterior motive, for the dragons wish to control humankind completely. In Will Elliott's World's End, the third volume in The Pendulum Trilogy, Levaal is facing the final battle in this age-old war between worlds and forces more ancient than any human, god, or dragon.

Carrie, Tom, Em and Michael Fielding are at the mercy of their rotten Uncle Rudolph after a fire leaves them homeless, with their mother in hospital and their father abroad at sea. Uncle Rudolph and his vain wife Val reluctantly take the children in, but soon let them live alone at World's End, their ramshackle house in the countryside, rather than look after them. So begins a life with no grown-ups where the Fielding children can adopt as many dogs, cats, monkeys and horses as they like. Free at last from interference from their relatives, they begin to fend for themselves, adding to their already sizeable collection of animals – rescuing them from the thoughtless cruelty of adults. The House at World's End is the first adventure in The World's End series.

The Caribbean Islands have long been an uneasy meeting place among indigenous peoples, white European colonists, and black slave populations. Tense oppositions in Caribbean culture—colonial vs. native, white vs. black, male conqueror vs. female subject—supply powerful themes and spark complex narrative experiments in the fiction of Dominica-born novelist Jean Rhys. In this pathfinding study, Mary Lou Emery focuses on Rhys's handling of these oppositions, using a Caribbean cultural perspective to replace the mainly European aesthetic, moral, and psychological standards that have served to misread and sometimes devalue Rhys's writing. Emery considers all five Rhys novels, beginning with Wide Sargasso Sea as the most explicitly Caribbean in its setting, in its participation in the culminating decades of a West Indian literary naissance, and most importantly, in its subversive transformation of European concepts of character. From a sociocultural perspective, she argues persuasively that the earlier novels—Voyage in the Dark, Quartet, After Leaving Mr. Mackenzie, and Good Morning, Midnight—should be read as emergent Caribbean fiction, written in tense dialogue with European modernism. Building on this thesis, she reveals how the apparent passivity, masochism, or silence of Rhys's female protagonists results from their doubly marginalized status as women and as subject peoples. Also, she explores how Rhys's women seek out alternative identities in dreamed of, magically realized, or chosen communities. These discoveries offer important insights on literary modernism, Caribbean fiction, and the formation of female identity.

This early work by William Morris was originally published in 1899 and we are now republishing it with a brand new introductory biography. William Morris was born in London, England in 1834. Arguably best known as a textile designer, he founded a design partnership which deeply influenced the decoration of churches and homes during the early 20th century. However, he is also considered an important Romantic writer and pioneer of the modern fantasy genre, being a direct influence on authors such as J. R. R. Tolkien. As well as fiction, Morris penned poetry and essays. We are republishing these classic works in affordable, high quality, modern editions, using the original text and artwork.

One moment Kenniston was strolling down the quiet street, lost in pleasant reverie. The next moment the sky split open! It split wide open, and above them was a burn and a blaze of light - so swift, so violent, that the air itself seemed to have burst into flame. Then there was silence - awful, suffocating silence. Kenniston felt the chill of premonition - a shapeless terror that grew into a thing too evil to be borne alone.
