Irons in the Fire (Russell Brand)

Irons in the Fire
Russell Brand

Blurb: '... the writings of a highly capricious and volatile witness to events at Upton Park and Soho Square...'

This is how Russell Brand describes this compilation of his Guardian columns that lead us from the disappointment of the World Cup through the following turbulent season for West Ham and England.

Brand writes about West Ham Football Club in a way that transcends club loyalties, and even a passion for football, to take us on the journey that 'Homer himself would regard as improbable.'

The Stallion (Harold Robbins)

The Stallion
Harold Robbins

Blurb: Continuing the phenomenal story in The Betsy, The Stallion reintroduces the Hardeman family and the cut-throat world of their vast automobile empire, where the stakes are high and everyman, and woman, is a gambler.

Loren Hardeman, known as 'Number One', is gradually transferring control of Bethlehem Motors to his grandson, Loren Hardeman III - a man possessed with his father's cunning, but sadly lacking in his ability to go for the kill. So when Angelo Perino, an outsider previously nurtured by 'Number One', threatens the position held by Hardeman III, what ensues is a battle of wills in which integrity takes a backseat to animal instinct, and in which there can only be one winner.

Bursting with huge ingredients of lust, greed, sex and intrigue - and a plot full of twists and double-crosses - this is Harold Robbins at his sizzling best.

King of the Cross (Mark Dapin)

King of the Cross
Mark Dapin

Blurb: 'Think Nick Hornby on a meth binge and you've got the style. Think Underbelly 2, but so much more real, and you've got the and compelling and just thinly veiled enough to make it so real.' Melbourne Times

'A fantastic work of crime fiction... a brilliantly funny yet violent and intriguing novel.' Launceston Examiner

'Will have you rolling in laughter... an outrageously uninhibited account of Sydney's most infamous nether world.' Sun-Herald

'...punctuated by lacerating comic dialogue and scenes of explosive violence, full of the kind of inventive word play and thinly veiled social commentary that makes Florida-based crime author Carl Hiaasen so much fun to read - and, as with Hiaasen, there's ample substance beneath the dialogue.' The Age

'Violent funny and poignant by turn; if you liked Underbelly, you'll love this.' Grazia Magazine

'I laughed out loud... the publisher's blurb says the book is 'crime fiction as it's never been written before', and that is a fair call. Dapin brings to the book the quirky, insightful turn of phrase that makes his newspaper columns for Good Weekend mandatory readying.' Stephen Romei, Australian Literary Review

'Dapin is a writer who punches with both hands and winks at the crowd while he's at it. His protagonist is part punk, part pug, part poet - an anti-hero who reveals his own back story as he gets the King of the Cross to unravel the eerily familiar tale of his unlikely rise.' Andrew Rule, author of Underbelly.

'Explosive, gritty, hilarious and - best of all - truly origianly. This book detonates while you're reading it.' Robert Drewe

The Water Room (Christopher Fowler)

The Water Room
Christopher Fowler

Blurb: An oasis in the heart of Kentish Town, Balaklava Street is ripe for gentrification. But then the body of an elderly woman is found at No. 5. Her demise seems to have been peaceful but for the fact that her throat is full of river water...

For the Met's Peculiar Crimes Unit, led by London's longest-serving detectives, Arthur Bryant and John May, this curious death marks the beginning of a distinctly sinister investigation. And the new owner of No. 5 is understandably unsettled by the damp in the basement of her home, some particularly resilient spiders and the ghostly sound of rushing water.

Unearthing hitherto undiscovered secrets, the two octogenarian policemen learn that, in a London filled with the rich, the poor and the dispossessed, there's still something a desperate individual is willing to kill for. And kill again to protect.

Armed only with their wits, their own idiosyncratic practices and a plentiful supply of boiled sweets, Bryant and May come face to face with madness, greed and revenge in a wickedly sinuous mystery that goes to the heart of every London home.

A Time to Sow - Star Trek (Dayton Ward & Kevin Dilmore)

A Time to Sow - Star Trek
Dayton Ward & Kevin Dilmore

Blurb: On the cusp of their epic battle with Shinzon, many of Captain Jean-Luc Picard's long-time crew were heading for new assignments and new challenges. Among the changes were William Riker's promotion to captain and his new command, Riker's marriage to Counselor Troi, and Dr. Beverly Crusher's new career at Starfleet Medical. But the story of what set them on a path away from the Starship Enterprise has never been told.

Until now.

More than two centuries ago, the Dokaalan sent an unmanned probe into the void, bearing a distress call for anyone who could save their doomed world. But the message reached Federation space too late to save the planet or its people. Or so it was believed...

Generations later, Captain Jean-Luc Picard and the crew of the Enterprise-E are stunned to discover the last of the Dokaalan - now only a colony, fighting to stay alive in a decrepit asteroid mining complex. Although their home planet was destroyed long ago, the survivors hope to someday transform a nearby planet into a new home for their people. But bitter divisions exist among the Dokaalan, sowing seeds of sabotage and terrorism - and placing Picard and the Enterprise in the middle of an escalating crisis that can only lead to total destruction!

James Patterson and Andrew Gross

I moved closer and knelt over the body. Tasha's blouse was soaked with blood, mixed with falling rain. Just a few feet away, a rainbow-hued knapsack still lay on the grass.

The tragic end of the honeymoon murder case left Lindsay Boxer, San Francisco's only woman homicide detective, unsure if she could ever return to work. But when a little girl is shot outside a San Francisco church, she knows it's time to reconvene the Women's Murder Club.

Working with reporter Cindy Thomas, Assistant DA Jill Bernhardt, and medical examiner Claire Washburn, Lindsay starts to track a mystifying killer who quickly turns his pursuers into his victims.

Street Gang: The Complete History of Sesame Street (Michael Davis)

Street Gang: The Complete History of Sesame Street
Michael Davis

Blurb: One evening in early 1966 a group of friends were gathered at a Manhattan dinner party, where the conversation turned to a subject a number of them had been thinking about: Why couldn't television be used to teach children? Suddenly, one of the most influential, durable, and beloved shows in the history of broadcasting was born.

Michael Davis's Street Gang unfolds the never-before-told saga behind Sesame Street: the miraculously improbably alchemy that brought a passionate team together, and kept them going through four decades of social change and the backstage dram behind a television show that had always appeared effortless. Street Gang is a story of a crusade, one that has already influenced four generations of children - and one that will remain a part of childhood for generations to come.

Blurb: Oh, hi. I'm so glad you decided to turn the book over. Inside you will find an assortment of wonderful things - words, pictures, advice, tidbits, morsels, shenanigans, and, in some copies, four hundred dollars cash. So you might want to buy a few.

I don't have enough room on this back cover to tell you all the reasons why you should buy this book, but I can tell you this and it's a guarantee: If you buy it, you will feel better, look better, be happier, grow taller, lose weight, get a promotion at work, have shinier hair, and fall madly, deeply in love.

As you probably know, this is normally where authors put nice quotes from fancy people praising their book. I'm a little uncomfortable with that. It feels like a gimmick to get people to buy it and I don't believe in cheap tricks like that. Besides, I know you're way too smart and beautiful to fall for that kind of stuff. Actually, I think you're so wonderful I thought I would use this space to praise you. Yes, that's right. You. Here are some of the nice things I have to say about you:

'That is a beautiful blouse you're wearing. It goes so nicely with this book.' - Ellen DeGeneres
'I love the way you're holding this book. It's like you were born to buy it and hold it forever.' - Ellen DeGeneres

The Lost Forests
Tony Barber

Blurb: In 1876, a young boy called TImothy Barber escaped from his cruel uncle, Fumble Fingers Farrow, and came to Australia from England. Timothy carried a bag of seeds, given to him by one of the world's last flying pigs! The pig told Timothy that all the creatures of magic and mythology had gone underground to lie safely in the many 'Other Worlds'.

As Timothy was a 'special person', the pig told him to listen for the sounds of the 'Other Worlds' drifting upwards from below. In these places he should plant one seed from the bag...and the talking guardian trees - The Lost Forests - would then spring up, surrounding magic trapdoors.

These trapdoors were the only entrances to the 'Other Worlds'. In 1932 Timothy and his wife Rosebud disappeared forever into the 'Other Worlds'. All the forests and trapdoors he had discovered vanished also.

Timothy's grandson, Tony Barber, who wrote this book, found the bag of the magic seeds left by his grandfather. Wherever he hears the sounds of the 'Other Worlds', he plants a seed, and a 'Lost Forrest' appears, along with a trapdoor. Each night he enters the 'Other Worlds', still trying to find his grandfather. The Lost Forests books are all about the creatures and many adventures Tony has there. We hope you enjoy reading them.
