The vast road network of Honce, completed a decade before, had brought great optimism to the people of the land. Commerce could travel more freely and so could armies, and those armies, it was hoped, would rid the land at long last of the vicious, bloody cap dwarfs and goblins. For the first time, the many individual kingdoms, the holdings of Honce, would be brought closer together, perhaps even united. For the last few years, those promises had become a nightmare to the folk, as two powerful lairds fought for supremacy of a hoped-for united kingdom. Bransen Garibond, the Highwayman, held little real interest in that fight. To him the warring lairds were two sides of the same coin. Whichever side won, the outcome for the people of Honce would be the same, Bransen believed. A journey north, however, taught Bransen that his views were simplistic at best, and that some things--like honor and true friendship-- might truly matter. In The Dame, the third volume in R.A. Salvatore's Saga of the First King series, Bransen's road becomes a quest for the truth, of Honce and of himself, a quest to put right over wrong. That path is fraught with confusion and fraud, and a purposeful blurring of morality by those who would seek to use the Highwayman's extraordinary battle skills and popularity among the commonfolk for their own nefarious ends.

Collected together for the first time, the exciting conclusion to New York Times bestselling author R. A. Salvatore's Saga of the First Kings series, set in the world of the DemonWars In The Dame, Bransen Garibond, the Highwayman, believes that the two warring lairds are two sides of the same coin. But he soon learns that view is simplistic at best. Bransen's road becomes a quest for the truth, of Honce and of himself, a quest to put right over wrong. In The Bear, the war of Honce drags on, and Bransen rejoins his solo quest to extricate himself from the selfish goals of all combatants. But in an odd twist of fate and crossed loyalties, Bransen sees in his old nemesis, Bannagran—the Bear of Honce and the man who slew his adoptive father—a darker image of his own heart. Allies and battle lines become tangled, motives indistinguishable as old friends become enemies, and old enemies become allies. The Highwayman comes full circle to learn the truth of his journey and the responsibilities of his great power.

Donald E. Westlake is one of the greats of crime fiction. Under the pseudonym Richard Stark, he wrote twenty-four fast-paced, hardboiled novels featuring Parker, a shrewd career criminal with a talent for heists. Using the same nom de plume, Westlake also completed a separate series in the Parker universe, starring Alan Grofield, an occasional colleague of Parker. While he shares events and characters with several Parker novels, Grofield is less calculating and more hot-blooded than Parker; think fewer guns, more dames. Not that there isn’t violence and adventure aplenty. . The Dame finds Grofield in Puerto Rico protecting a rich, demanding woman in her isolated jungle villa, and reluctantly assuming the role of detective. A rare Westlake take on a whodunit, The Dame features a cast of colorful characters and a suspenseful—and memorable—climax. With a new foreword by Sarah Weinman that situates the Grofield series within Westlake’s work as a whole, this novel is an exciting addition to any crime fiction fan’s library.

Excerpt from The Dame of Ossipee: A Poem There still the stage-coach holds its sway, With all its comforts, all its ills, And rumbles down at early day To drag its burden through the hills The mountain trunks, piled mountain high The throng that round the ladder meet, Who pass the Scripture warning by, And scramble for the highest seat. The sandy highway, fringed with green, By Sparkling water-courses led Along some ancient river's bed, With wealth of intervale between Winds upward toward the mountain range, As journeys one in morning dream, And bridges many a murmuring stream.

The Life of Dame Phyllis Frost

Dame Phyllis Frost was a remarkable woman who chaired countless organisations, raised millions of dollars for charitable causes, galvanised states into action after natural disasters and shamed countless politicians into action. Far from being ‘just a suburban housewife’– a phrase that she wielded like a weapon in her campaigns – Dame Phyllis was a force to be reckoned with. Nothing Like a Dame, her biography by BERNADETTE CLOHESY, reveals how Dame Phyllis fought for prison reform at a time when prisoners were locked away and forgotten; how she established the Keep Australia Beautiful movement; and how she became the national president of the Australian Freedom from Hunger Campaign. This is an amazing story following one woman’s battle for social reform.

Dr. Robert Berlin has created The Baryon Core, a powerful device with the ability to predict the future and retrodict the past by tracking the position and vector of every particle in the universe. Berlin swipes his own creation from The Company and disappears into history. The Company's time-cop Simon Rip and the sexy, brilliant Dr. Serena Ludwig join together to track Berlin and return the device. Their pursuit will take them back to the ice age and forward to the end of time. A RIP THROUGH TIME follows the time-cop's travels in a series of five short stories and a bonus flash piece written by several of today's top pulp writers. Chris F. Holm opens the collection with the fast-paced "The Dame, the Doctor, and the Device." Charles A. Gramlich's "Battles, Broadswords, and Bad Girls" and Garnett Elliott's "Chaos in the Stream" breathe new life into the time travel story. Bringing the saga to a gripping climax in "Darkling in the Eternal Space" is Chad Eagleton, who then takes it a step further with a mesmerizing coda, "The Final Painting of Hawley Exton." And for all the time-traveling enthusiasts, Ron Scheer provides an insightful essay, "Are We Then Yet," which explores the mechanics of time travel in popular fiction.

Guillaume Postel

Prophet of the Restitution of All Things His Life and Thought

Gui 11 aume Postel was undoubtedly one of the most remarkab 1 e and interesting scholars and thinkers of the sixteenth century. His know ledge of Hebrew and Arabic was rare among his contemporaries, as was his study and use of the Rabbinical, Cabalistic and Islamic literature pre served in these languages. His attempt to harmonize Christian, Jewish and Mbhammedan thought give him an important place in the history of re ligious tolerance, whereas his prophecies about a universal religion and a universal monarchy seem to anticipate more recent ideas of a world state and of general peace. In his prophecies, Postel assigned a unique role to himself and to a pious 1 ady whom he met in Venice and whom he lavishly praises in all his later writings. Admired and respected by many contemporary scholars and princes in France, Italy and Germany, he also aroused the suspicions of the religious and political authorities of his time who considered him dangerous but mad and thus spared his life, but confined him to a monastery for many years. His numerous writ ings survive in rare editions and manuscripts, and the later copies of some of his works show that he continued to be read and to exercise much influence down to the eighteenth century.
