You hold in your hands not a book at all, but a terrifying embodiment of purest evil. Can you feel the electric tingle in your fingers as you are absorbed by the demon Jakabok's tale of his unintentional ascent from the depths of the Inferno? Do you sense the cold dread worming its way into your bloodstream, your sinews, the marrow of your bones as you read more deeply into his earthly education and unspeakable acts? The filth you now grasp has been waiting patiently for you for nearly six hundred years. And now, before you are completely in its thrall, you would do well to follow the foul creature's admonition and destroy this abomination of ink and paper before you turn a single leaf and are lost forever. You have been warned.

What does it mean to have a personality that is slightly skewed? I am not speaking of a personality that throughout its earthly tenure exhibits qualities of excess, be they psychosomatic, psychotic, delusional, or narcissistic; I am speaking of a personality that on occasion, given the depth of emotional entrapment, takes matters to the edge of predictable behavior and beyond, thus shedding light on the darkness lurking within. Although these qualities might, at times, apply to some or all of the main characters here, they primarily serve as the necessary, yet impure, ingredients for the alchemists journey; as such, they point out the twists and turns of hints and allusions, the oddness of the plots, and, of course, the suggestion of larger, more intangible issues. In The Long and the Short of It, character impuritiesand our rigorous attempt to sublimate and repress themare subtle reminders of the cosmic hoop through which we jump to keep our world ordered and sane.

I’ve seen her a thousand times. Running through the blue shadows in the rain. Stopped by a screech of brakes and my voice shouting. Stopped by the sudden boom of my heart. On a quiet road just outside London, in the blue half-light of dusk, a car accident will change the lives of two families forever.Jack Philips is a happily married policeman with two small daughters, but the accident forces him to reassess everything he loves – and to confront long-buried secrets. For Lisa Jenkins, the devastation seems almost unbearable. Until she discovers an inner strength she never knew she had – and the courage to change her life completely. This heartbreaking but ultimately uplifting debut novel explores the ripple effects of a single moment of tragedy – the journey from guilt to peace, from vengeance to forgiveness, from grief to hope – and even, ultimately, to joy.

Excerpt: The Books of Abarat are a series of young adult fantasy novels written and illustrated by Clive Barker. The series is intended to contain five books, of which three have so far been published. The series takes place on the Abarat, a fictional archipelago consisting of twenty-five islands, one for each hour of the day (and one extra). The series is intended to consist of five books: Barker began painting illustrations for the first book in the series, Abarat, in 1995. He had originally intended for these paintings to be used in a 25-story 'Book of Hours'. As the number of paintings increased and the plot idea expanded, he decided the series would require four books (later increased to five) to fully contain the plot and characterization. The series is set on the "Islands of Abarat," of which each is based around a time of day (except the last island, which is based on the 25th hour). These islands are mounted in the Sea of Izabella, an ocean sometimes personified by the characters. Together, they compose what is described as "a limitless world" encompassing "chaotic diversity," called Abarat. Below are descriptions based on statements attributed to the character Samuel Hastrim Klepp, author of the popular tour-guide Klepp's Almenak: "There is no quieter place in the Abarat than at One o'Clock in the morning, where the six Pyramids of Xuxux rise out of the dark and uncannily placid waters of the Izabella."
