Mona Lisa Overdrive
Author: William Gibson
William Gibson, author of the extraordinary multiaward-winning novel Neuromancer, has written his most brilliant and thrilling work to date . . .The Mona Lisa Overdrive. Enter Gibson's unique world—lyric and mechanical, sensual and violent, sobering and exciting—where multinational corporations and high tech outlaws vie for power, traveling into the computer-generated universe known as cyberspace. Into this world comes Mona, a young girl with a murky past and an uncertain future whose life is on a collision course with internationally famous Sense/Net star Angie Mitchell. Since childhood, Angie has been able to tap into cyberspace without a computer. Now, from inside cyberspace, a kidnapping plot is masterminded by a phantom entity who has plans for Mona, Angie, and all humanity, plans that cannot be controlled . . . or even known. And behind the intrigue lurks the shadowy Yazuka, the powerful Japanese underworld, whose leaders ruthlessly manipulate people and events to suit their own purposes . . . or so they think.

John Taylor is a private detective. At least that's what his business card says, and it isn't completely untrue: Taylor is a private eye - or rather, he has a 'private eye', a supernatural ability to find anything that is lost. As a child of the Nightside, it's an ability he was born with. But it's been a long time since Taylor left the Nightside - that hidden netherworld in the middle of London where it is perpetually 3 a.m., where fantasy and reality co-exist - and he has no intention of returning. Then Joanna Barrett arrives at his office; her teenage daughter is missing and she is offering a small fortune to find her. Yet it's not just the money that persuades Taylor to take on the job, for he knows exactly where the girl has gone... The Nightside. And to save her, Taylor must do what he vowed he never would, and once again descend into the hellish depths of his home.

No one likes a diva - particularly one who lures her fans to an early grave. In the concealed heart of London known as the Nightside, a place of everlasting darkness, private eye John Taylor has a new case: find elusive young songstress the Nightingale, and get some answers. The Nightingale has cut herself off from everyone close to her, having fallen under the influence of a merciless husband-and-wife management team. Where once she sang cheerful, upbeat tunes, now her songs are dreary and melancholic - so melancholic, in fact, that those who hear them are driven to suicide. Detective Taylor is determined to uncover the truth behind this powerful voice, before the whole of the Nightside falls under its deadly spell. But to do so, he must first hear it himself...
Introducing Roger Brook, 'master spy and gentleman adventurer' of the Napoleonic Era, in Dennis Wheatley's famous historical series that spans the years from 1783 through 1815. The year 1783 finds the young Roger Brook fresh out of school and seeking his fame and fortune in France. Spurred on by his admiration for the delectable Georgina Thursby and the fair Athénais de Rochambeau, Brook gets involved in the secrets of French foreign policy, much to the peril of himself and his lady admirers. In this perfect coming of age story we see naivety, love, temptation and adventure propelling us cross-countries, with a host of surprising and unexpected characters. "The inventive energy of [Wheatley] is something to marvel at. He displays a fertility of imagination without equal among living writers" - Daniel George, Herald Tribune
Thou Shalt Not Be Aware
Author: Alice Miller
Publisher: Farrar, Straus and Giroux
Originally published in 1984, Thou Shalt Not Be Aware explodes Freud's notions of "infantile sexuality" and helps to bring to the world's attention the brutal reality of child abuse, changing forever our thoughts of "traditional" methods of child-rearing. Dr. Miller exposes the harsh truths behind children's "fantasies" by examining case histories, works of literature, dreams, and the lives of such people as Franz Kafka, Virginia Woolf, Gustave Flaubert, and Samuel Beckett. Now with a new preface by Lloyd de Mause and a new introduction by the author, Thou Shalt Not Be Aware continues to bring an essential understanding to the confrontation and treatment of the devastating effects of child abuse.
