  • Little Nell Luscombe padding naked and tanned in her native Devon streets was the delight of the local GIs.  Growing up, she learnt that there was a good living to be made from her substantial charms.  From servicing the Weymouth fishermen, she progressed to the peak of her profession, running a high class establishment - all tastes catered for - at Westminister.  A modern Moll Flanders, a girl no better than she ought to be and doing very nicely, thank you!
  • Sandra Foster studies fads - from Barbie dolls to the grunge look - how they start and what they mean. Bennett O'Reilly is a chaos theorist studying monkey group behaviour.  They both work for the HiTek Coporation, strangers until a misdelivered package brings them together. A moment of synchronicity - if not serendipity - which leads them into a chaotic system of their own, complete with a million dollar research grant, cafe latte, tattoos and a series of unlucky coincidences that leaves Bennett monkeyless, fundless and nearly jobless. Sandra intercedes with a flock of sheep and an idea for a joint project - after all, what better animal to study both chaos theory and herd mentality? But scientific study is rarely straightforward...
  • These are the REAL below-stairs stories from the time of servants, lords, ladies and the great divide between Upstairs and Downstairs.  Margaret Powell was originally interviewed on radio in the late sixties to talk about her life as a servant and the response was so intense that it spawned a series of books of her experiences.  Read about the household where she had to iron the bootlaces, and the guest who kept hot potatoes in her cleavage...not to mention the gentleman who like to stroke the housemaid's curlers (!).  You couldn't invent these stories.
