Summary

Andrew Lang's Fairy Books or Andrew Lang's "Coloured" Fairy Books constitute a twelve-book series of fairy tale collections. Although Andrew Lang did not collect the stories himself from the oral tradition, the extent of his sources, who had collected them originally (with the notable exception of Madame d'Aulnoy), made them an immensely influential collection, especially as he used foreign-language sources, giving many of these tales their first appearance in English. As acknowledged in the prefaces, although Lang himself made most of the selections, his wife and other translators did a large portion of the translating and telling of the actual stories.

Many of the books were illustrated by Henry J. Ford, Lancelot Speed, and G. P. Jacomb Hood also contributed some illustrations.

    Galaxy Dog is an epic space opera. (85,000 words - volume 1 of the Galaxy series). What starts as an ordinary invasion of an alien planet, brings to light an ancient archeological site of huge importance. A young man called Knave makes a life-changing discovery there and rises from a lowly position as an infantry trooper to become a player among the powers of the galaxy. This is the story of his rise, and the story of the fierce and independent woman and the feisty robot who help him. It is also the story of a spaceship that can upset the balance of power across human space. A spaceship from an ancient time, built by aliens, and full of advanced technology. It is an action-packed, sci-fi page turner that goes in directions the reader just will not expect.

    #1 New York Times Bestseller 
    The acclaimed, bestselling author—winner of the PEN/Faulkner Award and the Orange Prize—tells the enthralling story of how an unexpected romantic encounter irrevocably changes two families’ lives. 
    One Sunday afternoon in Southern California, Bert Cousins shows up at Franny Keating’s christening party uninvited. Before evening falls, he has kissed Franny’s mother, Beverly—thus setting in motion the dissolution of their marriages and the joining of two families.  
    Spanning five decades, Commonwealth explores how this chance encounter reverberates through the lives of the four parents and six children involved. Spending summers together in Virginia, the Keating and Cousins children forge a lasting bond that is based on a shared disillusionment with their parents and the strange and genuine affection that grows up between them. 
    When, in her twenties, Franny begins an affair with the legendary author Leon Posen and tells him about her family, the story of her siblings is no longer hers to control. Their childhood becomes the basis for his wildly successful book, ultimately forcing them to come to terms with their losses, their guilt, and the deeply loyal connection they feel for one another. 
    Told with equal measures of humor and heartbreak, Commonwealth is a meditation on inspiration, interpretation, and the ownership of stories. It is a brilliant and tender tale of the far-reaching ties of love and responsibility that bind us together.

    Excerpt From “Taken In Public By The Medical Students”
    
    
    As I approached his apartment, I was struck by how insane my question was going to sound. Maybe I should call him instead. He could give me advice over the phone.
    
    I raised my hand and considered turning around instead of knocking. Part of me still wondered if I should wait for Angie. Milk was still leaking profusely from my breasts, soaking the bathrobe. I was glad that it was already white, or else the creamy white would be even more obvious.
    
    "Did you want to come in?" a husky, masculine voice asked from behind me. I turned around and he almost jumped when he saw my face. "Oh, it's you."
    
    I was startled to turn around and find myself face to face with Taylor, the sexy swimmer in the pool. "I- um. I was looking for Edward," I murmured, instinctively wrapping the robe around myself tightly despite it being already secure.
    
    "Really?" he smiled slightly, staring at me with the same intensity that sent my body burning with lust. My bare skin was exceptionally sensitive, as if remembering the pleasure he had given me earlier. The nerves on my skin were on high alert, like electric sizzles that was waiting to move to a different host.
    
    He had a towel over his neck. His lightly tanned skin glistened with a small sheen of sweat and salty pool-water, giving him a sort of luminescent glow in the hall's dim lighting. He was a good head taller than me and a whole lot more muscular. I couldn't help the way my eyes drank him in, travelling from his chest to the hem of his swimming trunks that barely hung onto his hips.
    
    Desire curled in the pit of my stomach and I licked my lips when I saw that his manhood was pressing against the thin fabric. Without thinking, I reached forward and cupped his member.
    
    He hissed in reaction and grabbed my wrist. "As much as I would like to take you right here, I think my roommates are in the apartment."
    
    I gasped as my face reddened in shame. What was I thinking?
    
    I watched in silence as he pulled the towel from his neck and wrapped around his waist to hide his throbbing erection from his roommates.
    
    "Come on," he urged, reaching an arm over me to grasp the door knob, opening it without a key. "It's unlocked," he said, his breath so close to my neck that I could smell the familiar scent of pine of his body.
    
    My heart rate increased tenfold and I felt my core grow moist from his proximity. I was pathetic. A thought crossed my mind as he opened the door. "Are you a medical student too, Taylor?"
    
    He cocked an eyebrow at me as we walked into the apartment, "Yeah, why?"
    
    Perhaps I should get him to take a look at me instead. He had already seen me naked. That way, I wouldn't have to expose myself to more men. A shiver to anticipation rolled down my spine and my knuckles whitened as I held tightly to the robe around me. "Could you help me with something?" I asked, my voice barely above a whisper.
    
    I could hear noises coming in from the other rooms in the apartment.
    
    "What is it?" he asked carefully.
    
    "It's umm..." I bit my lip. "It's my breasts," I said softly.
    
    "What about them?"
    
    Eyes wide and nervous, I continued, "milk keeps coming out from them."

    In this gripping novel by CWA Gold Dagger winner Peter Dickinson, the survivor of a manor-house crime delves into the past to solve a mystery  At the elegant English manor known as Snailwood, tourists come daily to hear decades-old gossip about the second wife of the sixth earl. Zena was a remarkable young woman whose scandalous reputation has been dimmed neither by time nor by her bizarre death. In the 1930s, Zena was the star of a notorious party set whose members included playwrights, politicians, and Nazi sympathizers. They passed wild weekends at Snailwood, arguing about politics and drinking until dawn. At the center of their parties was the manor’s magnificent tower clock. The clock stopped long ago, but the darkness of its legacy continues to spread.   When a workman offers to fix the clock for free, the only remaining survivor of the old days is forced to revisit her memories of Zena’s last mad party, when death came to Snailwood and Britain changed forever.
