'Fearsome Passages' is an anthology of David Rainsbury's articles previously published in the Yachting Press. Each covers a channel or harbour entrance that is notorious for having difficult tide and current conditions. Covering notorious tidal areas, mostly on the north and west side of the British Isles and in Brittany, David Rainsbury discusses the best way to handle each of these fearsome passages, relating to his own experiences aboard Piper. Fascinating reading and also full of sound practical advise, 'Fearsome Passages' is an important companion for anyone visiting these treacherous corners of the British Isles and Brittany. David Rainsbury is an Ocean Yachtmaster with over thirty years sailing experience. Since 1998 he has sailed single-handed around Britain, Ireland and Western Europe, from Bergen to the Loire. His yacht, Piper, is a Contessa 26 and is based in the Menai Strait in North Wales.

God Is Stranger

What happens when God turns up? 'Has God become as familiar and forgettable as a fridge magnet? That's the danger Krish Kandiah faces up to in this wonderfully readable and very challenging book. Bible stories come to life as Krish tells them afresh, richly illustrated with personal experience and social relevance, and in each case the living God turns up - strange, dangerous, and, like Aslan, not safe but good.' CHRIS WRIGHT, LANGHAM PARTNERSHIP In an age of social and political uncertainty, Krish Kandiah turns to less familiar and more uncomfortable parts of the Bible to discover the true character of God - but be warned: he may be stranger than you think. Building on the challenges he explored in PARADOXOLOGY, Krish strips us of our comfortable assumptions and invites us to look afresh at God's character. When Abraham welcomes three men for dinner, he ends up pleading for the life of a city. When Jacob meets God by the river, they end up in a fight. And when two forlorn disciples meet a stranger on the road, their lives are turned upside down. GOD IS STRANGER challenges us to lay down our expectations of God and delight in the power that is proven by his very strangeness. 'Be warned: this book could seriously affect your view of yourself, of the world and of God - I highly recommend it to you!' PAULA GOODER, BIBLE SOCIETY 'An important and timely book from someone who lives out its message.' PETE GREIG, 24-7 PRAYER INTERNATIONAL

Brahms the Vocal Music

Brahms - The Vocal Music examines in detail the more than 150 choral works written by Johannes Brahms, considered one of the "greats" of choral music after his lieder were recorded by Dietrich Fischer-Dieskau. British musicologist A. Craig Bell brings to this third of his studies of musical giants his conviction that Brahms's work was not accorded its proper stature and was not frequently performed until his lieder were recorded by the famous lieder singer. These recordings revealed the true stature of Brahms as a lieder composer who ranks with such greats as Schumann, Wolf, and Schubert. Musically, Brahms's lieder are as varied and dramatic as the poetry they accompany. Bell employs his keen knowledge of the corpus of the composer's work to show how every musical phrase was inspired by the sentiments of the verse. He details the origin of each of the lieder poems, starting with the composer's first efforts and continuing to the disappointing Romanzen aus L. Tiecks Magelone and to the more eloquent and famous Wie bist du meine Konigin and later songs. Brahms's creative output increased as his personal life became more complicated. Schumann had died in 1856, and his widow Clara, aware that Brahms's respect and affection were becoming more intense, left Dusseldorf, where they were both living, the following year. She quietly withdrew from his life, a separation that affected the composer deeply. In the summer of 1858, the composer met and fell in love with the soprano Agathe von Siebold, but this entanglement proved to be a messy one. Bell proposes that because the composer's personal life was so disappointing, he poured all his frustration into setting to music poetry that provided him with sensuous, and even sensual, images. The result was love songs that shocked his friends. As he matured, Brahms's compositions became more mature and consistent. Moved by his passion for another young singer, Herminie Spies, the composer once again wrote music that revealed the strength of his feelings, while backing away from her admiration. Julius Stockhausen, the famous singer and close friend of the composer, in a letter to him acknowledging the gift of the song "Immerleise wird mein Schlummer," confessed he was so moved by it that he broke down singing it.

Robert Ervin Howard was an American pulp writer and is especially noted for his memorable depictions of ""a sombre universe of swashbuckling adventure and darkling horror."" He is well known for having created the character Conan the Barbarian. This collection includes Howard's short horror and fantasy stories, including the masterpiece "Pigeons from Hell," which Stephen King calls "one of the finest horror stories of century," a tale of two travelers who stumble upon the ruins of a Southern plantation-and into the maw of its fatal secret. In "Black Canaan" even the best warrior has little chance of taking down the evil voodoo man with unholy powers-and none at all against his wily mistress, the diabolical High Priestess of Damballah. In these and other lavishly illustrated classics, such as the nightmare "The Cairn on the Headland," Howard spins tales of unrelenting terror, the legacy of one of the world's great masters of the macabre.
