A bookstore can be a wonderful, welcoming place of both commerce and curiosity. That's the goal for Woody, an American recently transferred to England to run a branch of Texts. He wants a clean, orderly store and lots of sales to show his bosses when they arrive from the States for a pre-Christmas inspection. Not easy given the shop's location in a foggy strip mall. And things keep going wrong. No matter how often the shelves are put in order before the doors are locked at night, when the staff returns in the morning, books are lying all over the floor, many damp and damaged beyond repair. The store's computers keep acting up-errors appear in brochures and ads and orders disappear completely. And even when the machines are turned off, they seem to glow with a spectral gray light. The hit-and-run death of an employee in the store's parking lot marks a turning point. One employee accuses another of making sexual advances and they come to blows. Between one sentence and the next, one loses his ability to read. The security monitors display half-seen things crawling between the stacks that vanish before anyone can find them. Desperate, Woody musters his staff for an overnight inventory. When the last customers reluctantly depart, leaving almost-visible trails of slime shining behind them, the doors are locked, sealing Woody and the others inside for a final orgy of shelving. The damp, grey, silent things that have been lurking in the basement and hiding in the fog may move slowly, but they are inexorable. This bookstore is no haven. It is the doorway to a hell unlike any other. At the Publisher's request, this title is being sold without Digital Rights Management Software (DRM) applied.

When wildlife photographer Villager Jim first set eyes on a litter of nine chocolate labradors, one in particular caught his eye. Despite having two black labradors at home already, Jim knew he had to have one more--Barnaby. In his hilltop farm in the beautiful Peak District area of Derbyshire, in the north of England, Jim and his wife have long since given up any hope of having first option on the sofa, while Barnaby and sisters Dilly and Bumble make full use of the farm's facilities. There are chickens to chase, vegetables to be uprooted, and plenty of opportunities to sunbathe on conveniently-placed benches-or even in the flowerbeds. In between walks and playtime, there is lots of snoozing to be done, and no amount of awkward positions or insufficiently large laps will deter them. The labrador retriever is the most popular dog breed in both the UK and the US. They are known for their intelligence, loyalty, and gentleness, and also (perhaps unfairly) for their greed. It's no wonder that they make such wonderful pets, and such wonderful models for photography!

The no-punches pulled autobiography of former MP Frank Howard, who went from prison to federal politics in a career that saw him win ten elections over almost three decades.
The global success story of the Basel architects Jacques Herzog and Pierre de Meuron has local roots. This book traces these origins while identifying the essential ideas, professional ethics, and development of their architectural practice, established in 1978. The biographies of both architects and the activities of their practice are intimately bound up with the town of Basel. With this embeddedness in Basel as a point of departure, the authors elucidate central themes of their architectural oeuvre: from habitat to monument. With reference to exemplary buildings, they analyze the motifs, constructive principles, and spatial design of the architectonic works of Herzog & de Meuron. In addition, Jacques Herzog and Pierre de Meuron lead us on tours through Basel and its surroundings: statements by the architects, along with photographs taken especially for this volume by George Dupin, present the locales and buildings that have played key roles for the work of these architects. The book is rounded out by an intensive exchange of ideas between the architects and Jean-François Chevrier.
