Book Excerpt :

This is B. M. Bower's 1931 novel, “Dark Horse - A Story of the Flying U”. Big Medicine was a hero among the cowhands of the Flying U after he saved the stranger on horseback who had been struck by lightning. However, their mysterious guest seemed to have amnesia and couldn't remember who he was. A fantastic sequel to “Chip of the Flying U”, “Dark Horse” is not to be missed by fans of Bower's wonderful work. Bertha Muzzy Sinclair or Sinclair-Cowan (1871 – 1940), more commonly known as B. M. Bower, was an American author famous for her novels, short stories, and screenplays set in the American Old West. Other notable works by this author include: “Casey Ryan”, (1921), “The Long Loop” (1931), and “Chip of the Flying U” (1906). Many vintage books such as this are becoming increasingly scarce and expensive. We are republishing this volume now in an affordable, modern, high-quality edition complete with a specially commissioned new introduction and biography of the author.

When Malcolm Hay, a young British engineer, is sent to work for a Ukrainian-English oil company right before the first World War, he becomes a unique spectator of the political tensions of the time. After he befriends Kensky, a wealthy, elderly, Jewish-Russian man, and Grand-Duchess Irene Yaroslav, his life is changed by the gift Kensky has entrusted him with The Book of All-Power. The book, which is said to be able to make any man do the holder’s bidding and holds the secret to total power, is sought after by many, but few would suspect the engineer to have it in his possession. Years later Malcolm finds himself back in Russia, where he reconnects with old acquaintances, each finding themselves trapped in the country and enemies to the state. After her old butler gains prominence in the Russian Revolution, Irene is kept as his servant. Meanwhile, Malcolm is kept as a prisoner, accused of being an enemy to the revolution. With the help of a mutual friend and American gangster, Cherry Bim, and brandishing the all-powerful book, can Malcolm and Irene escape their imprisonment, and flee from Russia before it’s too late? This high-stakes thriller joins the impressive and respected catalog of Edgar Wallace, taking readers on an adventure. With the compelling characters, powerful artifact, and exciting setting, The Book of All Power is sure to keep readers engaged until the very last word.

Partnered with a new eye-catching design, The Book of All Power captures its audience and treats them to a modern and accessible manuscript that brings the legendary author, Edgar Wallace, into the 21st century.

Book Short Summary:

Jim Haynes, Australia's favourite tale teller, loves the sport of kings as much as he loves Aussie yarns and bush verse. From country picnic tracks to the thoroughbred racecourses of Sydney, Brisbane and Melbourne, from Archer to Black Caviar, from the mysterious punter Louis the Possum to the great trainer Bart Cummings, he brings these two great loves together in the biggest book of Australian racing stories ever. In these stories, full of the humour and romance of the track, Jim reminds us of the great champions, the tragedies, and the unique characters (equine and human) of racing. Here are stories of famous races and jockeys, touts and urgers, nose-to-nose battles and a rort or two, as well as country race meeting where anything can happen. This rich collection captures the heart and soul of the turf and reminds us exactly why a day at the races and having a punt are such an important part of the Australian spirit.

Book Short Summary:

A British tank historian sheds new light on the UK’s Cold War era research and development of cutting-edge military vehicles and anti-tank weaponry. In the thirty years after the Second World War, the British army entered a period of intense technological development. Yet, due to the lack of surviving documentation, comparatively little is known about this period. What does survive, however, reveals the British Army’s struggle to use cutting edge technology to create weapons that could crush the Soviet Union's armed forces, all the while fighting against the demands of Her Majesty's Treasury. On this journey, the Army entertained ideas such as massive 183mm anti-tank guns, devastating rocket artillery, colossal anti-tank guided missiles, and micro-tanks operable by crews of only two. At one point, they were on the cusp of building hover tanks. This book explores a time period of increasing importance in military engineering history and brings much-needed light to the dark age of British tanks.

A young escape artist and budding magician named Joe Kavalier arrives on the doorstep of his cousin, Sammy Clay. While the long shadow of Hitler falls across Europe, America is happily in thrall to the Golden Age of comic books, and in a distant corner of Brooklyn, Sammy is looking for a way to cash in on the craze. He finds the ideal partner in the aloof, artistically gifted Joe, and together they embark on an adventure that takes them deep into the heart of Manhattan, and the heart of old-fashioned American ambition. From the shared fears, dreams, and desires of two teenage boys, they spin comic book tales of the heroic, fascist-fighting Escapist and the beautiful, mysterious Luna Moth, otherworldly mistress of the night. Climbing from the streets of Brooklyn to the top of the Empire State Building, Joe and Sammy carve out lives, and careers, as vivid as cyan and magenta ink. Spanning continents and eras, this superb book by one of America’s finest writers remains one of the defining novels of our modern American age.

Book Short Summary:

Diary of a Drug Fiend (1922) is a novel by Aleister Crowley. Published at the height of his career as a poet and occultist, his debut novel draws on Crowley’s experiences as a heroin addict. Despite his lifelong struggle, Crowley’s penchant for recreational drug use and scientific informed many of the tenets of his religion Thelema. Diary of a Drug Fiend would inspire such musicians as Ozzy Osbourne, The Lemonheads, and The Beatles. Before there was Sir Peter Pendragon, decorated pilot and veteran of the First World War, there was Peter, a dedicated medical student with his whole life ahead of him. After the war, he struggles with depression and ennui while living off an inheritance from a deceased uncle. Alongside his lover Louise Laleham, he develops a passion for heroin and cocaine, which lead them across Europe in a series of drug-fueled escapades. Back in England, they attempt to use magick as a means of breaking their dependencies, but soon find themselves hopelessly lost in the world of addiction. At their lowest point, they meet Basil King Lamus, a powerful magician who offers them a way out. With a beautifully designed cover and professionally typeset manuscript, this edition of Aleister Crowley’s Diary of a Drug Fiend is a classic of English literature reimagined for modern readers.

Book Short Summary:

A true classic with a timeless message! All the other bulls run, jump, and butt their heads together in fights. Ferdinand, on the other hand, would rather sit and smell the flowers. So what will happen when Ferdinand is picked for the bullfights in Madrid? The Story of Ferdinand has inspired, enchanted, and provoked readers ever since it was first published in 1936 for its message of nonviolence and pacifism. In WWII times, Adolf Hitler ordered the book burned in Nazi Germany, while Joseph Stalin, the leader of the Soviet Union, granted it privileged status as the only non-communist children's book allowed in Poland. The preeminent leader of Indian nationalism and civil rights, Mahatma Gandhi—whose nonviolent and pacifistic practices went on to inspire Civil Rights leader Martin Luther King, Jr.—even called it his favorite book. The story was adapted by Walt Disney into a short animated film entitled Ferdinand the Bull in 1938. Ferdinand the Bull won the 1938 Academy Award for Best Short Subject (Cartoons).
