Herein are 17 illustrated stories by Robert Gordon Anderson with 16 full-page colour illustrations by Dorothy Hope Smith. This volume is the sequel to The Seven O'Clock Stories also written by Robert Gordon Anderson and with the same three happy children and are short stories of everyday happenings on a farm. The story of the Big Bobsled, even contains instructions on how to make your own. The volume is introduced with "The Top Of The Morning" which is the saying the Toymaker uses as a greeting, no matter the weather which sets the tone of the book. The stories are: "The Top Of The Morning" I The Little Lost Fox II The Big Bobsled III The Jolly Roger IV The Blue Croaker, The Bright Agate, And The Little Gray Mig V The Old Woman Who Lived On The Canal VI Two O' Cat VII The Fairy Lamp VIII The Animals' Birthday Party IX Dr. Philemon Pipp, The Patient Medicine Man X When Jehosophat Forgot His Piece XI Ole Man Pumpkin XII The Norway Spruce XIII When The Door Opened XIV The Hole That Ran To China XV The Peppermint Pagoda XVI He That Took The City These stories are simply and naturally told and are for children aged five to nine years old. As with all children’s stories, they have originated in a place where good wishes come true: where the poor and the lonely are rich and live in castles and have friends: and where sorrowful folk are happy. Here you will hear the birds singing and children laughing, all day long. The trees are full of blossoms and fruit. The sky is always blue, the grass green and soft. Under the trees dwell the fairies, and against the blue sky you will sometimes see the sheen of angels’ wings as the flit by.

Pastoralist traditions have long been extraordinarily important to the social, economic, political, and cultural life of the region of western India called Maharashtra. The Marathi-language oral literature of the Dhangar shepherds of Maharashtra is not only one of the most important elements of their own traditional cultural life, but also a treasure of world literature. This volume presents two lively and well-crafted examples of the ovi, a genre typical of the oral literature of Dhangars. The two ovis in the volume narrate the stories of Biroba and Dhuloba, two of the most important gods of Dhangar shepherds. Each of the ovis tells an elaborate story of the birth of the god - a miraculous and complicated process in both cases - and of the struggles each one goes through in order to find and win his bride. The extensive introduction provides a literary analysis of the ovis and discusses what they reveal about the cosmology, geography, society, administrative structures, and economy of their performers' world, and about the performers views of pastoralistsand women.

The top o' the morning! That's what the Toyman used to say. And I am sure if you ever go to the White House with the Green Blinds by the Side of the Road the Toyman will say it still, whatever the weather. And when you hear him call that over the fence so cheerily, from his smile you will know at once what he means, - that he wishes for you the very top of the morning, not only the finest of weather, but the best of happiness and fun, in whatever you do and wherever you go.

Cain, a quixotic anti-hero, navigates the foreign and hostile world of construction as he builds the Twin Towers prison in LA. The novel follows Cain through the seven stories, nine counting the foundation and roof, of this brooding building culminating with the violent LA riots. Whop, Cains personal Virgil, guides Cain through the hell of work-site accidents, deaths, graft, greed, incompetence, and disillusionment. Unlike in Dantes Inferno, Whop does not guide Cain to redemption. Instead, Cains foreman, Nickels, applies pressure to Cains mental state as the steel assaults his body and soul. While Cain sinks deeper into the construction site his hold on reality blurs by the surreal bombardment to his senses. He absorbs the maddening orchestra of noises and sights; the Native American iron worker, Coyote Eye, killing himself for his beloved; the rodbuster who robbed banks to escape the job; the sex addiction of Big Daddy and his crew of looneys; and the merciless steel trying to murder Cain one piercing shard at a time. The rest of the crew: Iron Horse, Tiny, Willie the Elevator Operator, Righteous Eddy Edmond, and the Funky Red Headed Dread Lock Dude notice Cains odd behavior, but they do not recognize his mental instability. As the Rodney King riot takes to the streets nine months later, LA burns in the night sky while Cain, Nickels and the cold steel collide.

Written almost a century before the daring flights of the astronauts, Jules Verne's prophetic novel of man's race to the stars is a classic adventure tale enlivened by broad satire and scientific acumen. When the members of the elite Baltimore Gun Club find themselves lacking any urgent assignments at the close of the Civil War, their president, Impey Barbicane, proposes that they build a gun big enough to launch a rocket to the moon. But when Barbicane's adversary places a huge wager that the project will fail and a daring volunteer elevates the mission to a "manned" flight, one man's dream turns into an international space race.

Building New Worlds is a history of a pivotal decades-long episode in the birth and growth of today's science fiction. Enthralling and amusing, it's written with affection and wit. This is no dry, modishly theorized academic analysis. Nor is it a rah-rah celebration of the "Good Old Days." Here is a candid and astute reader's response to a magazine that, by today's standards, was often comically bad--but was also immensely important in its time, and improved, like the Little Engine (or maybe Starship) That Could. New Worlds is best remembered today as the fountainhead of the New Wave of audacious experimental SF in the second half of the 1960s, under editor Michael Moorcock. But these first pioneering issues, from 1946-59, were edited by the magazine’s founder, John "Ted" Carnell (1912-72). Carnell was a pillar of the old-style UK SF establishment, but gamely supportive of innovators--most famously, of the brilliant J. G. Ballard, Brian W. Aldiss, and John Brunner, whose early work he nurtured. The story of how New Worlds got started, survived, and got better is essential to the history of the genres of the fantastic in the UK--and indeed, the world. And huge fun to read. Watch for the companion volumes, New Worlds: Before the New Wave, and Strange Highways, dealing with New World's companion magazine, Science Fantasy.
