Bob Harris is best known as the face of the premier live music show in the 1970s, The Old Grey Whistle Test, but his trademark 'whisper' has always given him a distinctive presence on radio. Now after 30 years in the music business Bob tells the story of his roller coaster journey. From the young passionate music fan who moved to London in the late 60s determined to make music his life, he carved a niche for himself in music journalism by cofounding Time Out and launched his radio career with Sounds Of The Seventies on Radio 1. The Old Grey Whistle Test soon followed and during the years he fronted the programme, he interviewed, and toured and hung out with some of the biggest names in music: Marc Bolan, David Bowie, Led Zeppelin, Queen, the Bee Gees, John Lennon... However it hasn't all been good. His career has had as many downs as ups (he has rebuilt it four times); he's been married three times and near bankrupted and hounded for his record collection by a fellow DJ. Yet 30 years on from his first broadcast, with strong and loyal audiences for his two shows on Radio 2, Bob is still driven by his passion for music.

Bob Harris first became known as the face of the 1970s live music TV show The Old Grey Whistle Test and his infectious enthusiasm for music and ability to discover new talent has seen him become a national treasure. He continues to be a household name today and his velvety voice can be heard on Radio 2's The Bob Harris Show and Bob Harris Country. In this fully revised and updated autobiography, Bob tells his story of over 40 years of broadcasting, from the young, passionate music fan who moved to London determined to make music his life, to being presented with an OBE for his services to music broadcasting. Much like his musical heroes, Bob's personal life also had a somewhat rock 'n' roll vibe: he has been married three times, gone bankrupt, fought cancer, weathered a very public spat with a fellow DJ and has had to revamp his career four times. Throughout all these times, however, his love of music and talent for broadcasting has endured. Featuring a 16-page full-colour plate section, Still Whispering After All These Years is a frank, vibrant and inspiring tale of one of the most influential names on the radio and reveals the story of the man behind the voice.

The year is 1949 and Valdimar Haraldsson, an eccentric Icelander with elevated ideas about the influence of fish consumption on Nordic civilisation, has had the singular good fortune to be invited to join a Danish merchant ship on its way to the Black Sea. Among the crew is the mythical hero Caeneus, disguised as the second mate. Every evening after dinner he entrances his fellow travellers with the tale of how he sailed with the fabled vessel the Argo on the Argonauts' quest to retrieve the Golden Fleece. A master storyteller, Sjón seamlessly blends seafaring yarns of the ancient world with the manners of the modern age. 'The Whispering Muse is a quirky, melodic, ticklish, seamlessly-translated, lovingly-polished gem of a novel. Sjón's work deserves space on any self-respecting bookshelf of European fiction.' David Mitchell 'Sjón writes like a man under a spell, filled with enchantment and magic and great wit. He is a rogue of the first order.' Keith Donohue 'The Whispering Muse is a wonderful story about stories, evoking comparisons to Borges, Nabakov and Calvino while remaining a complete original. Sly, dry and elegant, with a diamond brilliance' Chris Wilson 'An extraordinary, powerful fable - a marvel' Alberto Manguel 'An extraordinary and original writer' A.S. Byatt

Ramiz Alkhishin, the author's alter ego, is a grocer. He has a passion for a life that is as independent as possible from its surroundings. To him the trendy' place to be in is the one to avoid, while the traditional' road to follow is the one to by-pass. He has already documented some of his thought-adventures in eight earlier books. The author, in his new book, The Whispering Molecules, listened to and recorded the whispers of a variety of inert composites. The result of this imaginary project was a series of forty six stand-alone story dialogues where these seemingly life-less objects express their human-like' observations as they go about undertaking their designated tasks. The author hopes that through these dialectic scenes the reader can enjoy a trip where absolutes are banned and doubt is a constant companion. When questioned why he dislikes absolutes so much, Ramiz responded by reciting the following dialogue he had overheard: Glass: You seem confused. What happened to you? Water: What do you mean? Glass: You were clear and transparent but no more so. Water: I paid the price for being naïve. Glass: How? Water: By thinking that a drop of ink is too small to affect me!

Almost anyone who has read or written Science Fiction or fantasy has been inspired by the work of Michael Moorcock. His literary flair and grand sense of adventure have been evident since his controversial first novel Behold the Man, through the stories and novels featuring his most famous character, Elric of Melniboné, to his fantasy masterpiece, Gloriana, winner of both the Campbell Memorial and World Fantasy, awards for best novel. Neil Gaiman, Alan Moore, and Michael Chabon all cite Moorcock as a major influence; as editor of New Worlds magazine, he helped launch the careers of many of his contemporaries, including Harlan Ellison, Philip K. Dick, and J. G. Ballard. Tor Books now proudly presents Moorcock's first independent novel in nine years, a tale both fantastical and autobiographical, a celebration of London and what it meant to be young there in the years after World War II. The Whispering Swarm is the first in a trilogy that will follow a young man named Michael as he simultaneously discovers himself and a secret realm hidden deep in the heart of London. At the Publisher's request, this title is being sold without Digital Rights Management Software (DRM) applied.

From author Cleveland Joahll Sai comes an intriguingly new genre that young and old readers alike will surely find fascinating and inspiring. In this self-help fiction, tales are more than stories for mere entertainment. The engaging stories, controversial dialogues, mystical anecdotes, and vivid otherworldly experiences serve a point. Though conveyed in fictional accounts, the serious intent of The Whispering Archangel is to inspire introspection and new vision. This intent permeates every word. The book presents a unique view of how we got to where we are and assumes that we can change where we say we are going. This absorbing book presents exchanges and thoughts about existence that are altogether unique. It supposes that ultimate truth is not so clearly defined. The individuals in the book have different stories and come from different worlds. In their quest for illumination they are lead to conclusions, personal truths and understandings which even contradict. Through them the reader may find that universal truth is found along the path of personal understanding. Through the tales in The Whispering Archangel, a story of ascension, as pursued humanity, is told. This book suggests that a profound examination of all that is within and all that surrounds humankind must occur in order for ascension to take place. It demands that humanity awaken, become more consciously aware of the Life surrounding it, and ascend.

Fosse House, home of the reclusive Luisa Gilmore, harbours curious secrets - secrets that stretch back almost a century, to the ill-fated Palestrina Choir in its remote Belgian convent. When Oxford don Michael Flint travels to the house to trace the origins of the long-dead Choir, he is at once aware of the house's eerie menace. Who is the shadowy young man who lurks in the grounds, and why does his exact likeness appear in a sketch from 1917? What is the strange whispering that echoes through the corridors? And why is Luisa so afraid when a storm makes it necessary for Michael to spend the night inside the house? Back in Oxford, when Nell West uncovers the story of the infamous 1917 'Holzminden sketch' - the lost, legendary drawing from World War I - a dark fragment of the past begins to stir. A fragment that Michael, in the lonely old house, may not be able to resist.
