Summary

A Knight in a Daze is the humor-filled story of Ray Rutledge, traveling salesman and would-be knight in shining armor. At weekend Renaissance gatherings, he can be found wearing chainmail and wielding a gleaming sword. Monday through Friday, however, finds Ray calling on customer after customer. What his business life lacks in excitement he makes up for with a vivid imagination. Rescuing a damsel in distress is his favorite fantasy. 
 
Then, late one night on the road, while sitting on his motel bed in his underwear reading his favorite book, his favorite fantasy literally comes knocking on his door. No, make that pounding. Flinging the door open, Ray finds a gorgeous Hispanic woman, who grabs his t-shirt with both hands and says, "You got to help me get out of here. But first you better put on your pants." 
 
Pants on, Ray and the woman peel out into the midnight darkness as fast as an automatic transmission Japanese import can peel. On their way to California, Ray must dodge a questionable sheriff, win a battle over toilet paper, and survive a flash flood among other unpredictable events. Not to mention, they are pursued by criminals out to recapture the woman. And, as desirable as she is, Ray must follow the strict hands-off Code of Chivalry. 
 
Rescuing a damsel in distress ain't that easy!

    The author of Excellent Women explores female friendship and the quiet yearnings of British middle-class life—a literary delight for fans of Jane Austen.  Jane Cleveland and Prudence Bates were close friends at Oxford University, but now live very different lives. Forty-one-year-old Jane lives in the country, is married to a vicar, has a daughter she adores, and lives a very proper life in a very proper English parish. Prudence, a year shy of thirty, lives in London, has an office job, and is self-sufficient and fiercely independent—until Jane decides her friend should be married. Jane has the perfect husband in mind for her former pupil: a widower named Fabian Driver. But there are other women vying for Fabian’s attention. And Pru is nursing her own highly inappropriate desire for her older, married, and seemingly oblivious employer, Dr. Grampian. What follows is a witty, delightful, trenchant story of manners, morals, family, and female bonding that redefines the social novel for a new generation.

    What can zombies teach us about the gospel? The hit show The Walking Dead is set in a post-apocalyptic world inhabited by mindless zombies. The characters have one goal: survive at all costs. At first glance there doesn't seem to be much the show can teach us about God or ourselves. Or is there? Author and speaker Danielle Strickland didn't expect to be drawn to a show about zombies, but she was surprised by the spiritual themes the show considers. In The Zombie Gospel she explores the ways that The Walking Dead can help us think about survival, community, consumerism, social justice, and the resurrection life of Jesus. After all, in the gospel God raises up a new humanity―a humanity resuscitated and reanimated by the new life of the Holy Spirit. Fans of the show will resonate with the book's exploration of spiritual themes, and can follow along with the episode discussion guide included within. And even if you haven't yet encountered The Walking Dead, you may be surprised to find another, greater story within the show's story.

    Do you, Edna Constance Bathsheba, take Stephen John Elvis to be your lawfully wedded husband? I did. 
    After many, many years of marriage and many, many children, I've decided it's only fair to share my unparalleled expertise and deepest secrets with you in my new book, How To Have an Almost Perfect Marriage. Of course, the 'him' to whom I refer is my current husband, Stephen. You may be aware of his numerous books, his countless television shows and his enormous intellect. You probably know he spends his time travelling endlessly, attending operas, meeting famous stars of stage and screen and visiting tribespeople in the remotest corners of the globe. That's if you read all that rubbish he writes on Twitter, anyway – honestly, that man's imagination! 
    If you frequent the Dog & Duck, however, you'll know the truth. Or the Red Lion. Or Kev’s kebab van. Because that's where you'll almost certainly find him. Not dining at the Ritz or filming something about wizards in New Zealand and certainly not at home helping me take care of our five children. Or is it six? Actually, it might be seven now... 
    Of course, you can't realistically expect to have a marriage as perfect as ours, which is why I've called the book How To Have an Almost Perfect Marriage, but whether you're a husband-, wife- or divorcee-to-be or just simply Fry-curious, you'll learn everything you need to know, and quite a lot you don't, about the most wonderful years of your life as these nine chapters guide you through every aspect of marriage from proposal to divorce, enhanced by my own candid diary entries, incomparable poems and world famous mouth-and eye- watering recipes...
