    Sir Hugh Seymour Walpole (1884-1941) was a New Zealand-born English novelist famous for his skill at scene setting and vivid plots. He was a best-selling author in the 1920s and 1930s and remains popular to this day. One recurring theme in his works, based in his own unhappy experiences of being bullied at school, is alienation in childhood.The Ruby Glass is a story of dysfunctional childhood. The Cole family play host to their little cousin, Jane, one spring. The other children, Jeremy, Helen, and Mary take an instant dislike to this scrawny, terrified child, and although they do their best to include her in their games, Jane will not join in or engage with them.The only person who seems to like Jane is Hamlet, Jeremy's beloved dog. Jeremy is having a period where whatever he does, he seems to be in increasing trouble with his parents. And the hated cousin, Jane, always seems to be at the root of everything that goes wrong. He feels that she will be the source of his downfall.Then one day, the Jane commits the worst act that any of the children could possibly imagine. And Jeremy's response...even with hindsight he cannot understand how on earth he came to do what he did. And why. Why on earth did he do that?

    The Return of Sherlock Holmes is a collection of 13 Sherlock Holmes stories, originally published in 1903-1904, by Arthur Conan Doyle. The stories were published in the Strand Magazine in Great Britain, and Collier's in the United States.The book was first published in February 1905 by McClure, Phillips & Co. (New York) then on 7 March 1905 by Georges Newnes, Ltd. (London) and was the first Holmes collection since 1893, when Holmes had "died" in "The Final Problem". Having published The Hound of the Baskervilles in 1901–1902, which was set before Holmes' "death", Doyle came under intense pressure to revive his famous character. The first story is set in 1894 and has Holmes returning in London and explaining the period from 1891–1894, a period called "The Great Hiatus" by Sherlockian enthusiasts. Also of note is Watson's statement in the last story of the cycle that Holmes has retired, and forbids him to publish any more stories.Content: The Adventure of the Empty House / The Adventure of the Norwood Builder / The Adventure of the Dancing Men / The Adventure of the Solitary Cyclist / The Adventure of the Priory School / The Adventure of Black Peter / The Adventure of Charles Augustus Milverton / The Adventure of the Six Napoleons / The Adventure of the Three Students / The Adventure of the Golden Pince-Nez / The Adventure of the Missing Three-Quarter / The Adventure of the Abbey Grange / The Adventure of the Second Stain

    An outrageously funny novel of adventure, sex, corruption, and crime from one of the greatest British authors of the twentieth century. Michael Cullen is proud to be a bastard. His first memories are of the war, when his mother welcomed every soldier in Britain into her house, and young Michael hid beneath her bed to let the rocking of the springs lull him to sleep. By the time he’s eighteen, he’s got a pregnant girlfriend, and is staring down a long life of working-class respectability that simply makes him sick. So Michael says goodbye to his girlfriend and his home in Nottingham, and hits the road for London, where he will make his fortune—or die trying.   From the nightclubs of Soho to the depths of London’s underworld, Michael can’t help but get into trouble. But whether he’s chauffeuring a vicious gangster or smuggling gold bullion across the channel, he never stops having a wonderful time. Indeed, Michael is something else entirely: a happy bastard with nothing to lose.   A rollicking picaresque novel by the legendary author of such classics of kitchen sink realism as The Loneliness of the Long-Distance Runner and Saturday Night and Sunday Morning, A Start in Life is one of the funniest British novels of the twentieth century.   A Start in Life is the 1st book in the Michael Cullen Novels, but you may enjoy reading the series in any order. “A Start in Life is, for my money, the best novel that Sillitoe has yet written.” —New Statesman   “The kind of hilarious nonsense that keeps you riveted to deck-chair or arm-chair, depending on the season.” —The Daily Telegraph  Praise for Alan Sillitoe “The master of British verbal architecture.” —Rolling Stone Alan Sillitoe (1928–2010) was a British novelist, poet, essayist, and playwright, known for his honest, humorous, and acerbic accounts of working-class life. Sillitoe served four years in the Royal Air Force and lived for six years in France and Spain, before returning to England. His first novel, Saturday Night and Sunday Morning, was published in 1958 and was followed by a collection of short stories, The Loneliness of the Long-Distance Runner, which won the Hawthornden Prize for Literature. With over fifty volumes to his name, Sillitoe was elected a Fellow of the Royal Society of Literature in 1997.

    Hailed by the Times as "hugely entertaining", award-winning narrator Alison Larkin selects fairytales of strong, brave, independent, at times irreverent girls and women who take charge of their lives, go on their own adventures, rescue themselves, and sometimes even save the men they love. 
    These are not stories of helpless females shut up in high towers waiting around for a handsome man to rescue them while they sleep for years or brush their golden hair a lot. These heroines have far more to distinguish them than the fact that they (sometimes) end up married to a prince. 
    Selected and introduced by Alison Larkin, the stories are: 
    "The Snow Queen", "Molly Whuppie and the Double-faced Giant", "A Pottle of Brains", "Cap o' Rushes", "Hansel and Gretel", "Mr. Fox", "Clever Grethel", "Kari Woodengown", "The Twelve Dancing Princesses", "Felicia and the Pot of Pinks", "The Iron Stove", "The Hedley Kow", "The Six Sillies", "Baba Yaga", "The Old Woman in the Woods", "The Idle Spinner", "The Twelve Brothers", "Frederick and Catherine", "Little Red Cap", and "Beauty and the Beast." 
    Award-winning audio-book narrator, comedienne, and best-selling author of The English American Alison Larkin is also a classically trained actress who has appeared on Broadway with the Royal National Theater and off-Broadway with the Royal Shakespeare Company.
