    Sam Pig lives in a thatched cottage with Tom, Bill and Ann Pig - and also Brock the Badger. Cheerful stories for children from Alison Uttley  (1884-1976) who wrote over 100 stories for little people, including a pioneering time-slip novel  A Traveller In Time. Illustrations by A.E.  Kennedy.
  • The authors have taken Paterson's beloved ballad and traced the footsteps of  The Man From Snowy River through the Snowy Mountains country  and the strange, treeless plains of the Monaro. Here is the history of the real men and women in the background of Paterson's legend - half-mad shepherds, ticket-of-leave men, the squatters, the settlers and their inheritors. Plenty of awesome photographs in colour and black and white, together with the little snippets of  history that make up the entire colourful tapestry of the pioneers.

  • Many years ago, Hubert Marsten - wealthy eccentric of 'Salem's Lot - blasted his wife with a shotgun then hanged himself. For decades, local kids dared and double-dared each other to go into the abandoned house. But now the old Marsten house is coming alive again, in the most awful of ways.  Its infection begins to spread through the little town, to manifest in the most unspeakable of ways until practically no-one is human any longer.  Ben Mears, writer, and his eleven year old charge Mark, escape the horror, only to have to return and put a stop to it once and for all - if they can.

  • 1610: Hermetic magic is about to transform into science - this is the year everything could change.  Robert Fludd, English physician and astrologer uses Jon Dee's method of foretelling the future. It appears to work but he doesn't like the centuries he's predicting. Someone will have to change the future. Rochefort, duellist, down-at-heel aristocrat and spy for the Duc de Sully, France's powerful finance minister, has troubles of his own - Dariole, a young man of his acquaintance who is lust walking on two legs and as irresponsible as an alley-cat. The last thing he needs is a mad English astrologer in his life. Continental Europe is briefly at peace - but Henry IV is planning to invade the German principalities. Five years earlier, in England, conspirators almost succeeded in blowing up King James and his Parliament. The seeds of the English Civil War and the Thirty  Years' War are being sown... For a man of no conscience, Rochefort is about to be caught between loyalty, love and blackmail - between kings, queens, politicians and Rosicrucians - and all this before he encounters the woman he has, unknowingly, crossed land and sea to meet. Robert Fludd is pulling the strings... And Rochefort does not take kindly to being someone's puppet.
