From Publishers Weekly
Picking up where The Tangle Box left off, Brooks continues his increasingly convoluted narrative, again following the trials and tribulations of former lawyer?and currently Landover's ruler?Ben Holiday.

Thousand Years of English Poetry An Anthology

Book Description
The English language, with its rich vocabulary and unique grammar, has always been a fertile tool for the poetic imagination. In this illustrated volume, the great poets of the English tongue give voice to a startling range of perceptions and emotions, tackling subjects both earthly and divine, tragic and comic, epic and everyday.

Gerard Manley Hopkins thanks God for dappled things, Shelley evokes the heavenly qualities of the skylark and Keats the melancholy of autumn.
