Frederick William Adams battled his whole life with a severe sight disability, and people who did not want to see him achieve his dreams, to be one of the best wrestlers New Zealand has ever had. In an era where wrestling enjoyed unwavering popularity, Bill wrestled his way to the top of the pile in an exceptionally long-lasting and eventful sporting career which included winning the national title in the highly contested lightweight division nine times, beating a heavy weight on more than one occasion, competing in a national championship aged 61 and being selected for the biggest sporting event New Zealand had ever seen - the 1950 Empire Games in Auckland - only to be dropped amid allegations and controversy.

For award-winning science writer Margie Patlak, exploring the unique nature of the Maine coast opens a door to deeper ties and insights. Watching a striped monarch caterpillar transform into a chartreuse pendant dabbed with gold, she realizes the limits of life and what is passed between generations. Tides show how fleeting time is, and clouds and weather reveal greater forces that take away all illusions of control. She also explores the continental collisions that thrust up and fractured Maine’s mountains; digs into the latest scientific thinking on how animals navigate; and exults in the dizzy dance of plankton under the microscope. Even moose, fox, and fishers reveal more than meets the eye.These facets of the natural world speak a hidden language Patlak translates with her scientific knowledge and reflection. Nature begins to speak about the nature of life.

Americans and other English speakers have long associated the name of Hans Christian Andersen exclusively with fairy tales for children. Danes and other Scandinavians, however, have preserved an awareness that the fairy tales are but part of an extensive and respectable lifework that embraces several other literary forms. Moreover, they have never lost sight of the fact that the fairy tales themselves address adults no less than children. Significantly, many of Andersen's coevals in the U.S. knew of his broader literary activity and the sophistication of his fairy tales. Major authors and critics commented on his various works in leading magazines and books, establishing a noteworthy corpus of criticism. One of them, Horace E. Scudder, wrote a seminal essay that surpassed virtually all contemporary writing on him in any language. The basic purpose of this study, the first of its kind, is to trace the course of American Andersen criticism over the second half of the nineteenth century and to view it in several American contexts.

In the book, More than Meets the Eye; A Journey into the Mysteries of Psychic Phenomena, I invite the reader to join me in a fascinating trip to the field known as parapsychology. Parapsychology, or psi phenomena, are psychic events which do not lend themselves to regular explanation based on evidence provided by the senses; they are said to be extrasensory. These phenomena are: telepathy, clairvoyance, psychokinesis, and precognition. Our communication is based ordinarily on hearing or reading the others words, but in telepathic communication we are said to know the others thoughts directly, without the mediation of the senses. In clairvoyance, known also as remote viewing, we are said to see remote places without using the eyes. In psychokinesis we are said to be able to bend, push, or break objects without touching them, and in precognition we have direct glimpses of the future. Are telepathy, clairvoyance and other kinds of psychic phenomena real, or are they figments of an overly active imagination? And what about phenomena such as out-of-body experiences, apparitions of dead people, and reincarnation? Are such phenomena real? On the basis of my own experience, of the experiences of people I had interviewed, and of information I had gleaned from books by credible authors, I reach certain interesting conclusions which I share with the reader.

A beautiful English garden. An ugly murder. And a “gripping . . . surprising” case for London detectives Lambert and Hook (Publishers Weekly). Dennis Cooper has an idyllic life as curator of the national historical site, Westbourne Park. Overseeing the spectacular flowering grounds, supervising its popular restaurant, and making sure the daily throngs of tourists leave happy is a perfect job. If there’s a gnat in the dream it’s his wife, Alison, a woman so bored and isolated she could scream. But when Gloucestershire’s Superintendent John Lambert and Detective Sergeant Bert Hook are called to the Eden-like landmark, it’s to take in only one site: Dennis’s dead body in a pond on the edge of the gardens. The suspects are growing wild: his philandering wife and her lover; the restaurant’s nerve-fried staff; a new young intern from Glasgow; and a shady gardener with a violent temper. It’s clear someone held a grudge. Less clear is Dennis’s own shady past. And Lambert and Hook are determined to dig it up.

In this collection of poetry, you may find words to delight, intrigue or evoke awareness of things half-forgotten. More Than Meets the Eye points to the idea that the personal experiences of life are not meaningless and chaotic, and that there really is more to life than appears on the surface. The poems in this collection combine the expression of honest and deeply felt personal experiences and observations with a gently insistent recognition of the all-encompassing yet intimate realities which lie behind life. They seek to share the joys of life, the longings we feel and the need we have to be known and recognised – to be part of things. In bucking the trends of excessive cynicism, subjectivism or mysticism these poems seek out straightforward yet deep human feelings and a desire for real life. In sharing experiences and observations in an entertaining and sometimes humorous way, they hint at a route whose signposts have become rather obscured in today’s world. They provide an antidote to the poisonous effect on our lives of much modern positivism (with its underlying emptiness), a sense of the connection between the ordinary and the spiritual, and a sense of escape from the feeling of being trapped in a culture which does not recognise the individual. Those uneasy about new directions in our society or recent developments in religion might find a quiet place of empathy and comfort, and quite a few serious talking-points. Others will be justified in simply finding entertainment.
