Great Ghost Stories
R. Chetwynd-Hayes
0786713631
Aug 2004
Paperback
·
 
Book Description
Featuring eerily atmospheric modern tales of foreboding and unease by such contemporary authors as Garry Kilworth, Brian Lumley, Ramsey Campbell, Tony Richards, and R. Chetwynd-Hayes, as well as disquieting classic ghost stories by literary giants like Ambrose Bierce, Washington Irving, Sir Walter Scott, F. Marion Crawford, and J. Sheridan Le Fanu, this anthology of highly original and often long-obscure works by twenty-five noteworthy masters of the macabre is guaranteed to raise more than a shiver. Gleaned from the renowned Fontana Book of Great Ghost Stories series, which was edited from 1972 to 1984 by prolific horror fiction writer and erudite anthologist R. Chetwynd-Hayes, these tales reflect the enduring fascination in our literary tradition with phantoms, specters, ghouls, and wraiths. There's a Fetch, too-in...

Ohioana Quarterly, Summer 2004
"A light but serious treatment of the subject."

From the Publisher
Thirty million men suffer from some form of erectile dysfunction, according to recent estimates. While literature on the problem has been available for decades, generally it takes the form of dry textbooks written in "medicalese." OVERCOMING IMPOTENCE is, in contrast, user-friendly, emotionally supportive, and extremely informative. Writing in straightforward layman's terms Dr. Stephen Jones, a leading urologist, addresses the serious questions that men or their significant others may have about an increasingly common condition. Dr. Jones says at the outset to the reader that he is not alone in experiencing these problems--he has plenty of company! He discusses normal patterns of sexual...

From Publishers Weekly
Set in the 1930s, this somewhat mystical novel concerns a pair of golf legends, a war hero and a mysterious and gifted caddie. Copyright 1996 Reed Business Information, Inc.

From School Library Journal
YA?Elderly Hardison L. Greaves describes a memorable golf match he witnessed as a child in the 1930s to a medical student who is nearing burn-out. In the match, golf-great Bobby Jones plays Walter Hagen; to generate local support, World War I hero Rannulph Junah is asked to participate.

Clive Barker's A-Z Horror
Stephen Jones

Sept 1998
Paperback
·
 
Book Review
This splashy, high-concept book with glossy pages (designed to accompany a BBC-TV series) is not so much an encyclopedia, as a color scrapbook of Clive Barker's horror obsessions. After an introduction in which Barker examines such questions as "What is horror?" and "Why does it fascinate us?," the book takes the form of 26 heavily illustrated historical essays about assorted topics in the genre--one for each letter of the alphabet (e.g., "B is for Beelzebub"). The pictures include numerous paintings and drawings by Barker, stills from movies, movie posters, author/director bio inserts, and photographs of all types. A partial list of the topics covered: serial killers, H. P. Lovecraft, Dennis Wheatley, John Carpenter, H. R. Giger, Grand Guignol, makeup, killer clowns, killer kids, body horror,...

The Last Prairie
Stephen R. Jones
007135347X
May 2000
Hardcover
·
 
Book Review
Running 100 miles from north to south and 200 miles from east to west, the Sandhills make up about a quarter of the state of Nebraska and constitute the largest grass-stabilized dune field in the Western Hemisphere. Sparsely settled, the region has inspired a fine literature, numbering books by Jim Harrison, Mari Sandoz, and Merrill Gilfillan, among other writers.

Stephen Jones's The Last Prairie is a welcome, elegant addition to that library. An inspired blend of science, natural history, ethnography, and memoir, it recounts Jones's travels along the Niobrara River and deep into the heart of dune country--once the province of buffalo, cranes, and scattered bands of Pawnee and Cheyenne Native Americans, now the site of huge ranches and, as Jones notes, an army of white-tailed deer and other former denizens of wetland...

From Publishers Weekly
The fabled amphibian meets with marital discord; according to PW, "stylized, sophisticated pictures add to the keen humor of this revisionist revelry." Ages 5-up. Copyright 1994 Reed Business Information, Inc.

From School Library Journal
PreSchool-Grade 2-We all know that fairy tales end with the words "and they lived happily ever after." But what if they don't live happily ever after? What if you're a frog prince turned into a human prince? Is life with the princess who kissed your "slimy frog lips" all that it's cracked up to be? John Scieszka pursues the answers to these questions by continuing the prince's story (Viking, 19991). As read by Patrick Girard Lawlor, the characters are easily distinguished, from the strident tones of the princess, to the longing voice of...
