Again Sanders

"Again Sanders" is a collection of twelve short stories written by Edgar Wallace. The tales are all loosely connected and centre on Lt. Augustus "Bones" Tibbetts. Part of his famous "African novels" ("Sanders of the River" series), this volume is highly recommended for those who have read and enjoyed others in the series, and it would make for a worthy addition to any collection. Richard Horatio Edgar Wallace (1 April 1875 - 10 February 1932) was an English writer and journalist. He was a prolific writer, producing in his lifetime screen plays, historical non-fiction, poetry, 18 stage plays, over 170 novels, and 957 short stories. He is most famous for being the creator of King Kong, and for his "The Green Archer" serial. Other notable works by this author include: "Kate Plus Ten" (1919), "The Crimson Circle" (1922) and "The Valley of Ghosts" (1922). Many vintage books such as this are becoming increasingly scarce and expensive. It is with this in mind that we are republishing this volume now in an affordable, modern, high-quality edition complete with a specially commissioned new biography of the author.

The Chickamauga Campaign   Glory or the Grave

David PowellÍs The Chickamauga Campaign„Glory or the Grave: The Breakthrough, Union Collapse, and the Retreat to Chattanooga, September 20-23, 1863 is the second volume in his magnificent projected three-volume study of this overlooked and largely misunderstood campaign. According to soldier rumor, Chickamauga in Cherokee meant ñRiver of Death.î The name lived up to that grim sobriquet in September 1863 when the Union Army of the Cumberland and Confederate Army of Tennessee waged a sprawling bloody combat along the banks of West Chickamauga Creek. This installment of PowellÍs tour-de-force depicts the final day of battle, when the Confederate army attacked and broke through the Union lines, triggering a massive rout, an incredible defensive stand atop Snodgrass Hill, and a confused retreat and pursuit into Chattanooga. Powell presents all of this with clarity and precision by weaving nearly 2,000 primary accounts with his own cogent analysis. The result is a rich and deep portrait of the fighting and command relationships on a scale never before attempted or accomplished. His upcoming third volume, Analysis of a Barren Victory, will conclude the set with careful insight into the fighting and its impact on the war, PowellÍs detailed research into the strengths and losses of the two armies, and an exhaustive bibliography. PowellÍs magnum opus, complete with original maps, photos, and illustrations, is the culmination of many years of research and study, coupled with a complete understanding of the battlefieldÍs complex terrain system. For any student of the Civil War in general, or the Western Theater in particular, PowellÍs trilogy is a must-read.

The Complete Works of E  F  Benson  Illustrated

This carefully crafted ebook: "The Complete Works of E. F. Benson (Illustrated)" is formatted for your eReader with a functional and detailed table of contents. Edward Frederic Benson (1867-1940) was an English novelist, biographer, memoirist, archaeologist and short story writer, known professionally as E.F. Benson. He started his novel writing career in 1893 with the fashionably controversial Dodo, which was an instant success, and followed it with a variety of satire and romantic and supernatural melodrama. He repeated the success of Dodo, with sequels to this novel, but the greatest success came relatively late in his career with The Mapp and Lucia series consisting of six novels and two short stories. The novels feature humorous incidents in the lives of (mainly) upper-middle-class British people in the 1920s and 1930s, vying for social prestige and one-upmanship in an atmosphere of extreme cultural snobbery. Benson was also known as a writer of atmospheric, oblique, and at times humorous or satirical ghost stories.

Fortune of Fear

The Voltarian invaders are getting down and dirty . . . in the deadliest of games. The price: Planet Earth. Voltarian Royal Officer Jettero Heller has heart, nerve and a quick mind on his side. His archenemy Soltan Gris has cunning, ruthlessness and a devious plan on his. But what neither of them has is money—and without that they may as well pack up and go back to Voltar. Because as every earthling knows—no pay, no play. Heller’s solution is a weekend in Atlantic City, where he puts a new spin on gambling. He’s got a foolproof system, guaranteeing that he’ll win every bet he makes. Gris, on the other hand, has found an unexpected source of income. His body. Turns out there are certain women, with a very perverse sense of humor, willing to pay to play with him. Into this world of dirty money, dirty tricks and dirty games, the wildest of wild cards is about to change everything. Countess Krak is back—and this voluptuous Voltarian, condemned murderess and love of Heller’s life could prove to be the key player in coming to grips with a FORTUNE OF FEAR. “The adventure, colored by broad strokes of satire, is written with a vigor.” —PUBLISHERS WEEKLY

Sanders of the River

“You're one of those Forest of Happy Dreams Johnnies; what's that? A love philtre?” He was hysterically amused ... “My dear chap, it's awfully kind of you to have come – by the way, I suppose you are a doctor?” Sanders shook his head.

Sanders of the River

Commissioner Sanders is called upon by the British Government 'to keep a watchful eye upon some quarter of a million cannibal folk, who ten years before had regarded white men as we regard the unicorn.' There is religious-palava, raiding-palava, and all the while, Bosambo, magnificent chief of the Ochori watches on.

The Magistrate of Gower

'Thing is, my minister needs one of you law Johnnies to wrap up a ... uhm ... ticklish bit of business first,' and he taps the ... In these, his early middle years, he is said by women to resemble the dear dead Tsar and the dear King.

The Magistrate of Gower

‘In the end, you could choose to say no more than this: that in the high summer of 1938, in a courtroom in the town of Gower in the Union of South Africa, a case of arson came to an abrupt and irregular end, confounding those who had followed the matter and prompting speculation that approached, but did not quite deliver, scandal ...’ When an illicit affair in British Ceylon comes to light in 1902, seventeen-year-old Boer prisoner-of-war Henry Vos is disgraced. Months before, a short film made his face widely recognisable, but now he is shunned by Boer and Brit alike. Three decades later, Henry is the magistrate of Gower, a small inland town in the Union of South Africa, where he makes friends with young newcomer Adaira van Brugge. Adaira’s story will start to echo Henry’s when she takes a secret lover: Ira Gevint, a Jew who fled Europe only to wind up in a town ready to experiment with its own kind of persecution. As events threaten to unravel the careful life Henry has created for himself, desire surfaces alongside nationalist fervour in Claire Roberston’s arresting new novel about the courage to choose love over fear.

The Calorium Wars

“That's if you want to stick with us and stay clear of the coppers and the Johnnies and Stanton's Eyes. ... “Uh huh,” Liam said with a touch of irony, “it means I heard your little chat with dear old Reverend Beecher.

The Calorium Wars

A quick-witted Irish safecracker juggles alchemy and automatons in the action-packed follow-up to the nineteenth-century United States steampunk adventure, King of the Cracksmen. Liam McCool, the premier safecracker in 1877 New York, isn't the type to hang around fairy circles on the Celtic day of the dead. But an invitation from his Gram leaves the "King of the Cracksmen" possessed by the spirit of Finn McCool, the great hunter-warrior of ancient Ireland and a mighty magical force. Just in time, too. Edwin Stanton, once Lincoln's Secretary of War but now a self-proclaimed dictator, has restored slavery in the United States, and conscripted every able-bodied white male to fight in the war he's waging against Little Russia, made up of all the continental North America west of the Mississippi, sold to Russia by Andrew Jackson fifty years earlier. Stanton needs Little Russia's calorium, a mineral used to power America's airships, factories, and humanoid automatons. But Liam and the love of his life, world-famous reporter Becky Fox, mean to stop him. Joined by Crazy Horse, the Sioux war chief and medicine man, and Ambrose Chen, a Taoist sorcerer and alchemist, Liam and company embark on a wild series of adventures from New Petersburg, where revolutionaries are fighting to overthrow the government, to the Bear Flag Republic, a California enclave governed by P. T. Barnum.
