“A delightful find … anthology series that attempts to collect the early days of perhaps the greatest SF magazine, Amazing Stories, the Grand Old Lady of the pulps. I appreciate that the editors also include the interior illustrations, including work by Frank R. Paul and F. S. Hynd, and reproduce every cover for the year on the back, in beautiful color!” –BlackGate.com Amazing Stories was coming into its own in the early 1930s, and the first year of the decade offered many of early science fiction enduring masterworks—Louise Taylor Hansen’s Einsteinian themed “The Prince Of Liars,” G. Peyton Wertenbaker’s dimensional journey “The Ship That Turned Aside,” Edmond Hamilton’s deconstruction of sf, “The Man who Saw the Future,” Merab Eberle’s still fresh meditation on immortality “The Mordant,” Miles J. Breuer, M.D.'s mind-blowing exposition of conceptual breakthrough, "The Gostak And The Doshes," A. Hyatt Verrill's saucy scientific detective tale, "The Feathered Detective," Jack Williamson's hilarious seend-up of E. R. Burroughs, "The Cosmic Express," Charles Cloukey's scientific snare, "Rhythm," David H. Keller, M.D.'s much stolen by movies and tv, "The Ivy War," and Leslie Francis Stone's scientific take on fairy lore, "Through The Veil." Plus an insightful introduction discussing the state of magazine science fiction in 1930, the best stories in each issue, the background of Amazing Stories' new artist Leo Morey, and more. And as always, all the original illustrations and blurbs.

The Eastern Brew is a translation of some selected Urdu short stories written by prominent writers from India and Pakistan. These stories are as varied in their subject matters as they are in the assortment of writers presented in this anthology. The selection is not incidental or impulsive but premeditated and is based on careful consideration. It encapsulates almost fifty years of Urdu short story writing from both sides of the border, representing the vicissitudes of life and times during the years of drastic political and social changes and the struggles and conflicts, psychological or otherwise, of characters living through those tumultuous times. Though it is not possible to collect the works of representative writers of Urdu fiction spanning more than two generations in a short anthology of fifteen stories, an attempt has, nevertheless, been made to bring before the English readers the various threads of human relationships, social, personal, and psychological, that weaved or warped the life of characters in the exciting stories in this collection. The anthology thus provides to the readers of other languages an insight into the changing patterns and concerns of Urdu literary art during a span of two generations and the life and times of people in the subcontinent living through the change.

Environment days are occassions to educate the public on the issues of concern, to mobilize political will and resources to adress global problems and to celebrate and rein force achievements of humanity. The existence of environmental days pre dates the establishment of the United Nations but the UN has embrassed them as a powerful advocacy tool. Water and air , the two essentials on which all life depends , have become global garbage cans now. The real cure for our environment problems is to understand that our job is to salvage Mother nature. we are facing a formidable enemy in this field it is the hunters - and to convince them to leave their guns on the wall is going to be very difficult hence I strongly believe the information on every day of environmental importance will serve as a wake up call to aware the public on a wider scale . I hope the contents of this book will serve the purpose to some extent.
