This time, being true to herself could be a deadly mistake. Lonna Marconi likes to solve problems. The hard kind. A social worker by day, P.I. in her “spare time,” she’s figured out how to handle her little “werewolf problem.” After a dose of wolfsbane, her physical body stays safe in bed while her wolf goes spirit walking. If only she didn’t have a mind of her own… Deep in the Appalachians, Lonna learns a family secret that means she’s unique, even among werewolves. Now she’s pursued by a rogue sorcerer with poisonous intentions, other wizards who’d like to throw her in a gilded prison, and a band of ghostly wolves thirsting for her blood. Worse, there’s only one man who can protect her, and even he demands a price: her heart. Even though his own may be forever beyond her reach. Long Shadows is the second book in the Lycanthropy Files series but can be read as a standalone novel. If you like kick-butt female heroines with a good dose of snark, supernatural mysteries, and a dash of science in your fiction, you'll love Long Shadows.

How do nations reinvent themselves after cataclysmic events? Who gets to decide what happened yesterday, then to propagate the tale, and what are the consequences of their choices? These are some of the questions author and historian Erna Paris carried with her through the United States, with its long-buried memory of slavery; to South Africa, to sit in on the Truth and Reconciliation Commission's attempts to heal the divisions of apartheid; to Japan, France and Germany and the unresolved pain of Hiroshima and the Holocaust; and to the former Yugoslavia where she exposes the cynical shaping of historical memory, and the way the world community responded to the lethal outcome of that half-imagined history. Combining gripping storytelling with insight and sharp observation, Paris takes us to the places of reckoning—be they courtrooms or concentration camps—and finds hope in the way ordinary people grapple with the defining events of their lives. Evocatively written, her journey illuminates a crucial subject that straddles the 20th and 21st centuries.

This collection of short stories, some semi-autobiographical, by Marie Luise Kaschnitz (1901-74), the eminent German novelist and poet, reflects many of the themes to be found throughout her fiction, such as the dread of moral anarchy which leaves nothing in its wake, and the shaping of individual destinies by loneliness, insecurity and fear.Usually told from a woman's viewpoint, her works feature strong female characters whose inner strength enables them to overcome their fears and accept their fates with stoic determination. Kaschnitz's chief concern is the human condition, giving her work a continuing relevance; she confronts such universal issues as growing old, growing up and the loss of religious faith as well as those which have a more contemporary resonance, including the social problems of working parents and adoption.

The stage debut for the legendary detective John Rebus in this brand new, original story by Ian Rankin, written alongside the award-winning playwright Rona Munro. John Rebus is not as young as he was, but his detective instincts have never left him. And after the daughter of a murder victim turns up outside his flat, he's going to need them at their sharpest. Enlisting the help of his old friend DI Siobhan Clarke, Rebus is determined to solve this cold case once and for all. But Clarke has problems of her own, problems that will put her at odds with her long-time mentor and push him into seeking help from his age-old adversary: 'Big Ger' Cafferty. This haunting story takes Rebus to places he has never been before, sets him and his long-time foe on a collision course and takes us deeper into one of the most satisfying conflicts in modern fiction. Featuring an introduction from Rankin himself, a Q&A between writers Ian and Rona, an interview with the director, and behind-the-scenes production materials, this book is one Rebus fans will not want to miss out on.

The Long Shadows: A True-Life Novel The Long Shadows is a fascinating true-life novel about Jacob Reuben Erlich, who, at 8 foot 6, was among the tallest men in the world. Best known by his stage name, Jack Earle, he would overcome crippling shyness, depression, temporary blindness and the physical challenges of a giant's frame to earn widespread acclaim during his career as a silent film star, circus performer, artist, poet and vaudevillian. Drawing on ten years of research culled from family lore, newspaper archives, historical documents and the recorded recollections of Earle's contemporaries, author Andrew Erlich weaves a fascinating bio-fictional account of a remarkable man and the cast of colorful characters who knew him. Along the way, we learn a great deal about courage, character, and one man's unique perspective on a broad sweep of history that encompassed the Great Depression, the immigrant experience in turn-of-the-century Texas, silent films, life in the circus, the modern art movement and the domestic anti-Semitism that accompanied the run-up to World War II.

Long Shadows at Noon is a short collection of poetry and prose that addresses the richness and tragedies of life. Life has its many rewards that are often overshadowed by the pace at which modern life has captured our minds, time and attention. The shortest and darkest day of the year is the winter solstice that occurs on the 21st of December. This dark period often seems to sneak up on us with little notice or warning and we find ourselves longing for more pleasant times. Often we reflect during the deepest days of darkness on how we let another year slip through our fingertips without enjoying the recently departed summer and autumn. Life is similar. During the dark periods of our lives we often look back at happier times and long for their return. During these dark days of the solstice and of life we must remember that each new day is a little brighter and warmer. Better times are ahead and life is far too sweet not to enjoy. Unlike other poetry books Long Shadows proceeds each poem with a short essay as to its nature and motivation for being written. Life, death, love and passion are addressed in various styles and forms. Both the simplicities and entanglements of living from a man´s perspective are brought forth with an emphasis on taking a truthful and deep exploration of the soul.

In this, her twelfth collection, noted poet Sheenagh Pugh steps into a new, northern landscape, the Shetland Islands, with poems steeped in the wilder weathers and views of rugged coastlines, sweeping sea-vistas and the hardy historical characters who have inhabited these lands. A lovely pared-down spareness and an elegaic quality informing this new work. The author's characteristic dry humour is also present; she is a poet who considers 'too accessible' to be the best sort of compliment. Sheenagh Pugh's work has as much to offer the general reader as it does the specialist, who will admire her artful use of traditional forms.

The Tall Man referred to in the title is Osama bin Laden, a man who is unlikely to remain in the area where he is being sought, in Central Asia. The story reveals that he may in fact be in a very unlikely, very ordinary place doing very unlikely, very ordinary things. Or are they so ordinary? Is he still the leader of Al Qaeda? Have his methods and strategies been taken over by splinter groups mirroring Al Qaeda? Or has he established the perfect cover for an operation that could ruin the US economy? The USA's Homeland Security sends Agent Katja Monney into Afghanistan to uncover the truth. When Monney and her partner Jean Rosset, who knows nothing of her real operations, discover a terrorist plan to ship a 'dirty' nuclear device to New York, the Agency sends in their Special Forces to capture the man they think is Osama bin Laden ... with unexpected and extremely threatening consequences.

Cricket is a game that honours and cultivates its history. The glorious shots in Long Shadows are taken from the immense Fairfax archive and they provide a striking visual feast for lovers of the game. Some of them have been rarely seen, others were developed from the original glass negatives and yet others have never been published before. Together they represent a fascinating reflection of the enduring place cricket occupies in the heart of the nation. Each section in Long Shadows features an overview from some of our finest sports journalists and avid cricket supporters. Between them they take a multilayered look at the game, from the champions and legends of the Test arenas to country teams in dusty paddocks and bare-legged kids in suburban backyards. Long Shadows is part-history, part-social document and a loving, eloquent paean to the traditions and pleasures of the game.
