Artwork by Bern Emmerichs hardback 9780980671155 $27.95 This delightfully quirky picture book is an excellent introduction to the concept of history as a collection of many different stories. So if I was to write a science fiction book, I think it would focus on how life and technology changes in the future to manage these problems, and perhaps encourage readers to think what they could do now to protect our planet. There are stories of appetites (Handel eating dinner for three), embarrassments (Brahms falling asleep as Liszt plays), oddities (Bruckner's dog being trained to howl at Wagner), and devotions (a lovely admirer disrobing in tribute to Puccini).

A labyrinthine and spellbinding novel of love and war, this story of a Spanish architect who falls passionately for a woman who is not his wife is an elaborate, complicated maze, peppered with historical facts and faces — and one of the most eloquent monuments to the Spanish Civil War ever to be raised in fiction. — M.

McClay was a fugitive from the law of averages and knew he couldn’t escape the iron law forever. Their future safety is dependent upon fleeing Mexico. This is a unique look at the American family and its structure; examining how religion, faith, and the beauty and harshness of the Great Plains environment can affect individuals. This convinced me of the need for extensive research, not only for the sweep of history, but for scenic truth and time period accuracy.
