On a hot summer's night, in June 1985, in one of the most emotionally charged fights of all time, Barry McGuigan beat Eusebio Pedroza to become the featherweight champion of the world. An epic battle that lasted a full 15 rounds, it remains one of sport's greatest moments - watched by 27,000 spectators ringside and by a further 20 million on television around the world. Raised in the border town of Clones, Co. Monaghan, at the height of the troubles, Barry McGuigan united people across sectarian and religious divides during a difficult time in the country's political history. A Catholic, Barry married his Protestant childhood sweetheart, Sandra in 1981. An Irishman, he fought for the British title, wearing boxing shorts in the colours of the United Nation's Flag of Peace - and in place of a national anthem his musician father, Pat McGuigan would often sing a heartfelt rendition of 'Danny Boy' before a fight. Engaging and intelligent, McGuigan is a renowned and revered figure in the boxing world and beyond. In this candid autobiography, The Clones Cyclone shares his stories of extraordinary professional triumph and devastating personal tragedy.

The storm has become a universal trope in the literature of crisis, revelation and transformation. It can function as a trope of place, of apocalypse and epiphany, of cultural mythos and story, and of people and spirituality. This book explores the connections between people, place and environment through the image of cyclones within fiction and poetry from the Australian state of Queensland, the northern coast of which is characterized by these devastating storms. Analyzing a range of works including Alexis Wright's Carpentaria, Patrick White's The Eye of the Storm, and Vance Palmer's Cyclone it explains the cyclone in the Queensland literary imagination as an example of a cultural response to weather in a unique regional place. It also situates the cyclones that appear in Queensland literature within the broader global context of literary cyclones.

"Oh, it actually flies?" uttered the perpetually unimpressed teenager beside me, as we accelerated through 50mph towards the hedge. Low expectations or what? But I'd finally done it. I'd taken the plunge and bought my own aeroplane: a Cyclone AX3, which I named 'Harriet'. This is a journey you'll want to share if you plan on buying a plane, or simply want to bring a smile to your face enjoying the adventures of others. Feel the surprise, joy, and distress, that only aeroplane ownership can provide. ... and find out if we cleared that hedge! "Not only a wonderful personal story of one man's dream to fly, but a fascinating history of a lovely little aircraft." - Geoff Hill, Microlight Flying Magazine Editor and critically acclaimed author.

This book describes, in previously untold detail, the story of the development and service of the Caudron-Renault CR.714C1 "Cyclone" in the French and Finnish Air Forces. Whilst the concept of "lightweight" fighters was examined in many countries before and during WW2, the little Caudron was one of the very few to see production and service. On operations its limitations were cruelly exposed, but this did not stop its pilots (French, Polish and Finnish) from doing their very best, and this book is dedicated to their bravery. Comprehensively illustrated with photos, scale plans, detail drawings and color profiles, this book is essential reading for enthusiasts and historians of air combat in WW2.
