    INTERNATIONAL BESTSELLER 
     
    In the Hugo-award winning, epic New York Times Bestseller and basis for the BBC miniseries, two men change England's history when they bring magic back into the world.  
     
    In the midst of the Napoleonic Wars in 1806, most people believe magic to have long since disappeared from England - until the reclusive Mr. Norrell reveals his powers and becomes an overnight celebrity.  
     
    Another practicing magician then emerges: the young and daring Jonathan Strange. He becomes Norrell's pupil, and the two join forces in the war against France.  
     
    But Strange is increasingly drawn to the wild, most perilous forms of magic, and he soon risks sacrificing his partnership with Norrell and everything else he holds dear.  
     
    Susanna Clarke's brilliant first novel is an utterly compelling epic tale of nineteenth-century England and the two magicians who, first as teacher and pupil and then as rivals, emerge to change its history.

    The K’Terrian Affair is an uplifting but emotional love story about the first-ever human/alien love affair.
     
    Alex Tucker’s mother abandoned him when he was nine-years-old. Twenty years later, she’s a major with the U.S. Army overseeing a high security post on Dune Island, a remote community in the middle of Lake Michigan. So, Alex leaves a promising career at the FBI to become Chief of Police on Dune Island and, hopefully, get to know her.
     
    Once there, he meets and is attracted to the mysterious Eleanor Engle. She and her father are scientists that do research for the army. But as their relationship develops, Alex discovers the Engles are really the last two surviving members of Earth’s first alien delegation from another planet. A delegation his mother is sworn to protect.
     
    When it’s discovered an organization called the Consortium is out to kidnap the Engles for their advanced technology, things quickly escalate to a heart-pounding climax. The K’Terrian Affair is, like all Timothy Best novels, deep romance and high adventure rolled into one unforgettable story.
