Toshack s Way

For most football players winning three Welsh Cups, three English First Division League titles, an FA Cup and two UEFA Cups would amount to a job extremely well done. For John Toshack, the haul underpinned a career in management which across four decades, has taken in ten countries across Europe and Africa. Toshack’s Way: My Journey in Football, tells his story in full for the first time: the decade at the top as a player in one of football’s most famous institutions; unprecedented success as a manager; glories across the Mediterranean and constant cultural discovery elsewhere in the globe.

The Derelict

The girls beside them wore the full and colorful dress and sash of Balihian
aristocracy, not exposing their upper body as was the informal norm of the
peasant ladies from the houses and the huts and the lean-to shacks way below.

The Derelict

The Derelict is a space saga centering on a stellar skirmish and a meeting with an unseen menace known to be heading for the Milky Way Galaxy. United States Naval Battle Group One intercepts this strange contact miles beyond the galaxy and finds an immense, creeping derelict spaceship billions of years old. It is not until they board this dangerous, burned-out hulk that they discover they are trapped there by murderous diabolical forces.

More Like Not Running Away

The road opened. The night in the truck wore off in the warmth. Clumps of trees
with night between them gave way to shacks and fences, then long lines of trees
that were too tall to pick from. “Why are those trees in lines?” I hadn't even
thought ...

More Like Not Running Away

An “extraordinary first novel” about a father trying to escape the past and a son lost in a world of imaginary voices—winner of the Mary McCarthy Prize (Booklist). Levi Revel is a boy in danger of losing his family and maybe his mind. He’s in awe of his father, Everest—a majestic dreamer, a master builder, a man with a violent, secret past. As the family moves from state to state, Levi hears solace in the voice of God, a voice that sends him preaching from treetops and roofs. But as the family begins to fall apart and Levi enters adolescence, he starts to hear more troubling things. When Everest takes him on a high-speed, cross-country chase to win back Levi’s mother—by force if necessary—Levi realizes how much danger they all are in. Tender and frightening, More Like Not Running Away takes readers across America, through the eyes and ears of a child whose family is haunted by a past they can’t outrun. “Shepherd’s family-in-decline frames an impressive father-son character study.” —Publishers Weekly “This extraordinary first novel about the blood ties that bind fathers and sons packs such emotional power that reading it is like sustaining repeated blows to the heart.” —Booklist “Shepherd is a master craftsman, and the subtlety of his art, the unassuming elegance of its architecture, rendered me spellbound and finally grateful.” —Bob Shacochis, author of The Woman Who Lost Her Soul “A riveting exploration of what it is to be an outsider even in your own head. Shepherd has written a gripping story of childhood angst—psychologically thrilling, lyrically exact.” —Janet Burroway, author of Writing Fiction

London Falling

She'd worked out her own answer, way back. Looking at Toshack now just made
her more certain. 'There's something I have to do, and I'm going to need the Sight
to do it.' 'What would that be, then, girl?' asked Toshack. Was it her imagination ...

London Falling

‘He's gone and written a novel too! I suspect it will be just as good as everything else he's written, and that's not fair at all.’ - George R R Martin London Falling by Paul Cornell is an exciting urban gothic mystery, where dark powers gather in the battle for London's streets. The dark is rising . . . Detective Inspector James Quill is about to complete the drugs bust of his career. Then his prize suspect Rob Toshack is murdered in custody. Furious, Quill pursues the investigation, co-opting intelligence analyst Lisa Ross and undercover cops Costain and Sefton. But nothing about Toshack’s murder is normal. Toshack had struck a bargain with a vindictive entity, whose occult powers kept Toshack one step ahead of the law – until his luck ran out. Now, the team must find a 'suspect' who can bend space and time and alter memory itself. And they will kill again. As the group starts to see London’s sinister magic for themselves, they have two choices: panic or use their new abilities. Then they must hunt a terrifying supernatural force the only way they know how: using police methods, equipment and tactics. But they must all learn the rules of this new game - and quickly. More than their lives will depend on it.

Shanks

The authorised biography of Bill Shankly. Bill Shankly is one of football's greatest heroes. The former coal-miner from Ayrshire gave his life to football. Best remembered for his outstanding Liverpool sides that included Hunt, Keegan, Smith, Clemence and Hughes, he led Liverpool to three Championships, two F.A. Cup and the UEFA Cup. Told with the full co-operation of his family, and including exclusive interviews with those who lived and worked with Shankly, this is the definitive biography of the man who, when asked whether football was a matter of life and death, replied: 'No, it's much more important than that'.

The Severed Streets

Desperate to find a case to justify the team's existence, with budget cuts and a police strike on the horizon, Quill thinks he's struck gold when a cabinet minister is murdered by an assailant who wasn't seen getting in or out of his limo. A second murder, that of the Commissioner of the Metropolitan Police, presents a crime scene with a message...identical to that left by the original Jack the Ripper. The new Ripper seems to have changed the MO of the old completely: he's only killing rich white men. The inquiry into just what this supernatural menace is takes Quill and his team into the corridors of power at Whitehall, to meetings with MI5, or 'the funny people' as the Met call them, and into the London occult underworld. They go undercover to a pub with a regular evening that caters to that clientele, and to an auction of objects of power at the Tate Modern. Meanwhile, in Paul Cornell's The Severed Streets, the Ripper keeps on killing and finally the pattern of those killings gives Quill's team clues towards who's really doing this.... At the Publisher's request, this title is being sold without Digital Rights Management Software (DRM) applied.
