Summary

In Campbell Armstrong’s chilling novel of suburban horror, something evil lurks in the garden behind an English boardinghouse Eric Billings is not a violent man—not really. It’s just that his temper sometimes gets the best of him. Eric has had fourteen apartments in the last two years. He isn’t sure why he keeps moving, but something always seems to go wrong. Take his latest residence, for instance. It’s a quiet room with a big window and a friendly landlady downstairs. But there’s a dog in the backyard that won’t stop barking at night. Eric is beginning to lose sleep, to miss work, to get angry. And when that happens, he can’t be sure what he’s going to do next.   A winner of a Scottish Arts Council Award, this chilling novel of suburban horror shows that evil can hide beneath even the most benign exteriors.

    Trevor Noah's story began with a criminal act: his birth. During the apartheid in South Africa, an interracial union was forbidden by the law and could ensue five years of imprisonment. Trevor's father was a Swiss man and his mother was a Xhosa woman—he was the living proof of their relation. Because of this, Trevor grew up being hidden and protected by his mother, by all means possible, in fear of the government taking him away from her. When South Africa was finally liberated from the white colonization, Trevor and his mother went off on an adventure entailing multitudes of difficulties and seizing opportunities. 
    The book, Born a Crime, tells the tale of a young mixed-race boy growing up in a world where he was never supposed to exist. It tells his story of overcoming difficulties he could possibly face with his strong, courageous, dedicated, and religion mother who was determined to take her son away from all the violence, poverty, and abuse that she, herself, faced. 
    Every story within the overarching story of Trevor involves crises that are overwhelming, dangerous, and touching—with a touch of humor. From having to survive eating caterpillars for dinner, experiencing attempted kidnapping, to simply trying to work out how the world of dating in high school, Trevor shows the stories reflecting himself through wit and humor. He creates a tale entwining small sagas of trying to grow up as a fine man amidst a difficult and dangerous world, guided by his own sense of humor and his mother's unconditional love.

    Brevity is the soul and wit of this publication; however, the medical industry is the largest and most complex combination of human resources ever assembled, earning it a status well worth writing about. Certain epigrams are gentle and subtle, and others quite caustic, but all contain some form of social or scientific commentary. If the reader has a morbid sense of humor, this book will be especially enjoyed.

    There is a land – let's call it Elsewhere – that is in no small amount of trouble. Giant wolves are tearing villages apart, a monster king is bringing his army across the sea to capture the legendary Hall of Glass, and the High Lord has completely disappeared. 
     
    Henry Whistler was eight when he got lost at a bus station in Hounslow. There his adventure began. For that was when he met the exiled invisible man, the monster swordsman, and the girl with the bright red hair. 
     
    Now a grown-up, Henry's childhood adventure is a faded memory... until his fiancée vanishes. Until he is drawn into another world. Until he is pursued by a blind assassin – with only a monster and a dead man for company - across a land that is in no small amount of trouble.

    Angus:My mixed-breed cat, half domestic tabby, half Scottish wildcat. The size of a small Labrador, only mad. 
    Thongs:Stupid underwear. What's the point of them, anyway? They just go up your bum, as far as I can tell. 
    Full-Frontal Snogging:Kissing with all the trimmings, lip to lip, open mouth, tongues ... everything. 
    Her dad's got the mentality of a Teletubby (only not so developed). Her cat, Angus, is trying to eat the poodle next door. And her best friend thinks she looks like an alien -- just because she accidentally shaved off her eyebrows. Ergghhhlack. Still, add a little boy-stalking, teacher-baiting, and full-frontal snogging with a Sex God, and Georgia's year just might turn out to be the most fabbitty fab fab ever!
