About 15,000 people live permanently afloat on canals, rivers and coasts in Great Britain alone, but thousands more enjoy holidaying on boats or own them as weekend retreats in the UK and abroad. This book will feature not only static residential boats and floating dwellings but also those used as holiday homes and funky modern businesses – houseboats can range from canal boats, riverboats, narrow and wide beam boats, barges, Dutch barges, static houseboats and even seaworthy cruisers moored in marina. The book will cover stylish boats from the UK, North America, Europe and Australia. The houseboats engage the reader through their history and owners’ stories, which are told in lively text and colourful images. People fall in love with boats and own them for a variety of reasons: out of affordability and necessity; a love of the water; closeness to nature and the environment; or just because they yearn for a different and more relaxed style of living/working space. This book shows how houseboats can offer an attractive, practical and alternative solution, as well as amazing and often idiosyncratic solutions to living successfully in a small space. My cool houseboat covers the following themes: stylish architectural, from San Francisco to Prague; thrifty and eclectic, as an affordable solution to conventional city dwelling; businesses, using houseboats as unusual workspaces, from a book barge to an allotment; modernist, from a Finnish floating office to an Amsterdam watervilla; recycled, ranging from an Ellis Island ferry houseboat to a converted minesweeper; and soulful, covering alternative ways of life, relaxation and recreation, from a New York City houseboat to a stylish Paris home.

Iain Banks' daring new novel opens in a loft apartment in the East End, in a former factory due to be knocked down in a few days. Ken Nott is a devoutly contrarian vaguely left wing radio shock-jock living in London. After a wedding breakfast people start dropping fruits from a balcony on to a deserted carpark ten storeys below, then they start dropping other things; an old TV that doesn't work, a blown loudspeaker, beanbags, other unwanted furniture...Then they get carried away and start dropping things that are still working, while wrecking the rest of the apartment. But mobile phones start ringing and they're told to turn on a TV, because a plane has just crashed into the World Trade Centre... At ease with the volatility of modernity, Iain Banks is also our most accomplished literary writer of narrative-driven adventure stories that never ignore the injustices and moral conundrums of the real world. His new novel, displays his trademark dark wit, buoyancy and momentum.

My Australian Prince sets itself mainly in Western Australia's ruggedly beautiful and antique Kalgoorlie-Boulder, the enchanting Archipelago of the Recherche on the Southern Ocean, and the delicate splendour of Paris outskirts of antiquity. Alain James Goldenbough, endowed with magnetic handsomeness and intelligence, is born in 1960 into Western Australia's richest family. Their wealth emanates from the 1893 Gold Rush of the famed mining twin-towns of Kalgoorlie-Boulder. His famous colourful posy since the age of ten is the symbol of his high regard for women... and the New Mothers Paradise his brainchild. For his only love Elizabeth Sinclair, he reserves the red rose-posy and he leads them both to a vow of virginity. Together with Elizabeth, he is to face his two legacies - the only-child Goldenbough Australian ancestry and his maternal Montagne French heritage. Elizabeth must help him, but it seems that his heart that softens to women's needs will not know the mysteries beneath Elizabeth's crescent smile and lake-look aquamarine eyes. He will not know either the versatile schemes of his two rivaling grandfathers - Pop Sir William Goldenbough of Australia and Papy Vincent Montagne of France - nor the mysterious family in France that aims to destroy him. His two legacies will pound and crumble him to his limits, bringing him out to the extraordinary, away from the typical Australian laid-back personality. Spanned across three-and-a-half decades from 1960 to 1995, Alain's inimitable story will entertain and stir you, touch your emotions, and test your mentality.
