From an author who is “equal parts J.K. Rowling, Douglas Adams, and Shel Silverstein,” the zany illustrated adventures of a sea-faring blue bear. —The Washington Post Captain Bluebear is a bear with blue fur, a creature as unique as the fantastic adventures he undergoes. Unlike cats, which have only nine lives, bluebears have twenty-seven. This is fortunate, because our hero is forever avoiding disaster by a paw's breadth. In this remarkable book, Captain Bluebear tells the story of his first thirteen-and-a-half lives spent on the mysterious continent of Zamonia, where intelligence is an infectious disease and water flows uphill, where headless giants roam deserts made of sugar, and where only Captain Bluebear's courage and ingenuity enable him to escape the dangers that lie in wait for him around every corner. In company with our indomitable hero, we enter a land of imaginative lunacy and supreme adventure, wicked satire and epic fantasy, all mixed together, turned on its head, and lavishly illustrated by the author. Praise for Walter Moers: “Sheer craziness . . . very amusing.” —Daily Telegraph “Moers's great strength, as evidenced by the multitude of characters he presents, is his creativity. Less a text and more an imagination on paper.” —Philadelphia Enquirer “Moers’ creative mind is like J.K. Rowling on ecstasy.” —Detroit News

Best known for his fiction and fairy tales, such as the immortal classics Robert Falconer and At the Back of the North Wind, the Victorian author and theologian George MacDonald inspired some of the greatest writers of the 19th and 20th centuries. Most notably, C.S. Lewis credits MacDonald’s books with inspiring his works of fantasy fiction as well as putting him on the path to Christianity. In this major biographical work, MacDonald scholar Michael Phillips examines how the events of the author’s life contributed to his work and legacy. Referring to this volume as a “bibliographic biography,” Phillips brings his expertise to bear on the complete corpus of MacDonald’s fiction, pointing out each book’s essential themes, and offering insights into how each title can be most perceptively be read.

Three amazing novels in one fabulous ebook by #1 internationally bestselling author Douglas Kennedy. The Pursuit of Happiness: Manhattan, Thanksgiving eve, 1945. The war was over, and Eric Smythe’s party was in full swing. All his clever Greenwich Village friends were there. So too was his sister Sara, an independent, outspoken young woman, starting to make her way in the big city. And then in walked Jack Malone, a U.S. Army journalist just back from a defeated Germany, a man whose world view was vastly different than that of Eric and his friends. This chance meeting between Sara and Jack and the choices they both made in the wake of it would eventually have profound consequences, both for themselves and for those closest to them for decades afterwards. Set amidst the dynamic optimism of postwar New York and the subsequent nightmare of the McCarthy era, The Pursuit of Happiness is a great, tragic love story; a tale of divided loyalties, decisive moral choices, and the random workings of destiny. A Special Relationship: About an hour after I met Tony Hobbs, he saved my life. Thirty-seven-year-old American journalist Sally Goodchild quite literally married her hero. Both foreign correspondents, both on assignment in Cairo, they quickly fell in love and settled into domestic life in London. From the outset, Sally’s relationship with both Tony and his hometown was an uneasy one; she found both to be far more unfamiliar than imagined. But her adjustment problems are soon overshadowed by a troubled pregnancy. When she goes into premature labor, there are doubts whether her child will survive unscathed. And then, out of nowhere, Sally is hit by an appalling postpartum depression—a descent into a temporary, but very personal hell, which even sees her articulating a homicidal thought against her baby. However, when she does manage to extricate herself from this desperate state, she finds herself in a fresh new nightmare, as she discovers that the man she thought knew her better than anyone—loved her more than anyone—now considers her an unfit mother and wants to bar her from ever seeing her child again. State of the Union: America in the 1960s was an era of radical upheaval—of civil rights protests and anti-war marches; of sexual liberation and hallucinogenic drugs. More tellingly, it was a time when you weren’t supposed to trust anyone over the age of thirty; when, if you were young, you rebelled against your parents and their conservative values. But not Hannah Buchan. Hannah is a great disappointment to her famous radical father and painter mother. Instead of mounting the barricades and embracing this age of profound social change, she wants nothing more than to marry her doctor boyfriend and raise a family in a small town. Hannah gets her wish. But once installed as the doctor’s wife in a nowhere corner of Maine, boredom sets in... until an unforeseen moment of personal rebellion changes everything. For decades, this one transgression in an otherwise faultless life remains buried. But then, in the charged atmosphere of America after 9/11, her secret comes out and her life goes into freefall.

Type: novella word count about 39,300 A new approach to the classic fairy tale. The story of Beauty and the Beast with a twist. What if the woman was the one turned into the creature? A realm of adventure and peril mingled with romance, friendship, magic, and sword and sorcery. Join Pluck in this novella series as she travels through a strange land of danger and intrigue as she finds allies and foes alike in her search to lift her monstrous curse. A story like Beauty and the Beast but with more action adventure and menacing darkness. On the planet Terra when recorded history began, Man coexisted with the Necroms. The dawn of this period was known as the First Age of Magic. In the Second Age of Magic, a war broke out between Man and the Necroms and by the middle of the Second Age, Man was nearly wiped from creation. Those who survived fled Wellspring and journeyed across the sea into the unknown, finding new homes and creating fortified domains. In the Third and final Age of Magic, Man established five island kingdoms: Commery, Fletching, Morgog, Swelldom, and Hort. For generations, the wars continued until an arranged marriage between the two strongest kingdoms of Commery and Morgog ceased the bloodshed, and so Man established the first Emperor and Empress and the tradition of Amalgamation. When both the Emperor and Empress of the Five Kingdoms died, the two strongest kingdoms' heirs married and crowned a new dynasty and so began the Age of Amalgamation. During this age, a witch placed a curse on a girl named Pluck. The curse had been meant for a boy, Prince Edward of Fletching, for stealing the Mystic Rose. Pluck transformed into a Necrom with the Kiss, Edward's first kiss, as her only redemption. The Kiss wouldn't be an easy task since showing her face meant her death. Pluck goes through her young adult life training to become a High Guard as a means to lift her curse but it never comes. What does the future hold for her? Beauty Of The Beast Epic Fantasy Action-Adventure Sword and Sorcery Dark Fantasy YA Novella Series: 1. BOTB1A: The Flower, The Sword, And The Kiss 2. BOTB1B: A Vow Of Love And The Challenge 3. BOTBC: Hearts Betrayed And Blood Revealed Pluck looks like a Necrom (tiger, lion, cheetah, and panther) an animal that should only exist in mythic fiction. Young adult Pluck grows into a heroic warrior and faces her curse as the Prince leaves their island in this high fantasy adventure. She will encounter new realms and magical realism lands full of supernatural races that should only live in legend or myth. This Beauty and the Beast like story will take her to a land of untold dangers. In this retelling of Beauty and the Beast, she must find a way to exist in her cat-like form that others see as hideous long enough to gain her freedom. A not so classic approach to a version of the famous fairytale. Sword and sorcery with a little romance thrown in will delight anyone who enjoys fairy tales as they journey with the Beast Woman. This book uses a mixture of YA fantasy to create a book for all ages to enjoy. Will she finally receive the Kiss in this romantic fantasy and finally end the hex that has kept her hidden away from everyone? Her survival depends on whether or not she can earn the trust of Edward and help him remember who she was to him as children. As young adults, they were close. She had been brought in to learn with him as a preteen and she went through schooling with him. All of that is in the past now... Now everything depends on the Prince and what he will do once he realizes what she truly is. What will he do once he sees the Beauty of the Beast? YA Beauty and the Beast retelling of the classic fairytale to delight and tickle hearts of all ages with friendship, love, romance, and struggle of good versus evil.
