Envoys from the Stars

Three first-born children are sired by three males from Earth’s three great races! Each of these fathers had suffered abduction and bio-genetic surgery by extraterrestrials who appear to be a mix of ancient ancestors to our planet’s contemporary peoples. In the interest of Earth’s mankind, our progress over thousands of years, has been monitored, believe or not, on a regular basis by these ancient ancestors, but while consistently being horrified by the advent of our countless wars, our advancing technologies, in the alien’s minds, have now deemed us to now be approaching the point of starting wars which could result in our total annihilation! Each child, Charles, Chein, and Zuda, has been born with highly advanced alien genes which are programmed to advance in stages towards their maturation whereby they finally will be able to report collectively & accurately at any point whereby mankind’s manifest destiny could be ultimately affected! Hence the possibility of an alien intervention!

The Long Dark Tea Time of the Soul

The Long Dark Tea Time of the Soul

The second Dirk Gently book by Douglas Adams, The Long Dark Tea-Time of the Soul is a witty detective story perfect for fans of his phenomenally successful The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy. When a passenger check-in desk at Terminal Two, Heathrow Airport, shot up through the roof engulfed in a ball of orange flame, the usual people tried to claim responsibility. First the IRA, then the PLO and the Gas Board. Even British Nuclear Fuels rushed out a statement to the effect that the situation was completely under control, that it was a one in a million chance, that there was hardly any radioactive leakage at all and that the site of the explosion would make a nice location for a day out with the kids and a picnic, before finally having to admit that it wasn't actually anything to do with them at all. No rational cause could be found for the explosion - it was simply designated an act of God. But, thinks Dirk Gently, which God? And why? What God would be hanging around Terminal Two of Heathrow Airport trying to catch the 15:37 to Oslo?

Tea Time

Tea Time

Come, have a seat… Meet Ms. May and Ms. Joyce Anderson two loveable, spunky residents of the Crossroads Nursing Home as they sit together for afternoon tea. But keep your wits about you, there’s more to this place than meets the eye. “Tea Time” is a Saki Short Story and to say any more would give too much away, but one thing’s for certain, this is a tea party you will never forget. *Please be advised. Disturbing subject matter. Please keep in mind the genre of the story (Horror/Thriller).

Mr Mac and Me

Mr Mac and Me

Thomas Maggs, the son of the local publican, lives with his parents and sister in a village on the Suffolk coast in 1914. He is the youngest child, and the only son surviving. Life is quiet – shaped by the seasons, fishing and farming and the summer visitors. Then one day a mysterious Scotsman arrives. To Thomas he looks for all the world like a detective, in his black cape and hat of felted wool, and the way he puffs on his pipe as if he's Sherlock Holmes. Mac is what the locals call him when they whisper about him in the inn. And whisper they do, for he sets off on his walks at unlikely hours, and stops to examine the humblest flowers. He is seen on the beach, staring out across the waves as if he's searching for clues. But Mac isn't a detective, he's the architect Charles Rennie Mackintosh, and together with his red-haired artist wife, they soon become a source of fascination and wonder to Thomas. Yet just as Thomas and Mac's friendship begins to blossom, war with Germany is declared. The summer guests flee and are replaced by regiments of soldiers on their way to Belgium, and as the brutality of war weighs increasingly heavily on this coastal community, they become more suspicious of Mac and his curious behaviour... In this tender and compelling story of an unlikely friendship, Esther Freud paints a vivid portrait of a home front community during the First World War, and of a man who was one of the most brilliant and misunderstood artists of his generation.
