Harry Flashman, step aside, old son. Make way for Charlie Smithers. The time is the nineteenth century. The place, the Serengeti Plain, where one Charlie Smithers - faithful manservant to the arrogant bone-head, Lord Brampton (with five lines in Debrett, and a hopeless shot to boot) - becomes separated from his master during an unfortunate episode with an angry rhinoceros, thereby launching Charlie on an odyssey into Deepest Darkest Africa, and subsequently into the arms of the beautiful Loiyan...and that's where the trouble really begins. Maasai warriors, xenophobic locals, or evil Arab slavers, the two forbidden lovers encounter everything that the unforgiving jungle can throw at them. "A truly engaging read that will keep anyone's attention from the hilarious beginning until the last word. I highly recommend this 5 star novel." Chapters & Chats

The Speedicut Papers recount the life, loves and adventures of Jasper Speedicut: charmer, sexual libertine, reluctant hero – and friend of the self-styled Brigadier General Sir Harry Flashman VC. They are also a unique account of events during the second half of the 19th century in the British Empire and beyond. Comprising a series of linked adventures and anecdotes, The Speedicut Papers not only lift the lid on a veritable cesspit of upper class debauchery that makes Downton Abbey look like a vicarage tea party, but expose the fact that Flashman was nothing more than a remittance man and a plagiarising fraud. The first book in a ten volume series, Flashman’s Secret, uncovers some very murky corners of 19th century history including the early careers of Sweeney Todd and the notorious courtesan, Lola Montez; the reason why Nelson’s last words were changed after his death; and the existence of a sinister secret society at the heart of the British establishment dedicated, by whatever means including murder, to upholding the honour of the British crown. In nine subsequent volumes yet to be published, The Speedicut Papers will reveal the truth about many other previously unexplained historical incidents including well evidenced explanations for the relentless pursuit through the criminal courts of Oscar Wilde, the actual reasons behind the deaths of Emperor Maximilian I of Mexico, President Lincoln, the Prince Imperial, King Ludwig II of Bavaria and The Duke of Clarence & Avondale.

English is the collective work of millions of people throughout the ages. It is democratic, ever-changing and ingenious in its assimilation of other cultures. English runs through the heart of world finance, medicine and the Internet, and it is understood by around two thousand million people across the world. Yet it was very nearly wiped out in its early years. In this book Melvyn Bragg shows us the remarkable story of the English language; from its beginnings as a minor guttural Germanic dialect to its position today as a truly established global language. THE ADVENTURE OF ENGLISH is not only an enthralling story of power, religion and trade, but also the story of people, and how their day-to-day lives shaped and continue to change the extraordinary language that is English.

The giant squid is one of the most elusive creatures in the world. As large as whales, they hide beyond reach deep within the sea, forcing scientists to piece together their story from those clues they leave behind. An injured whale's ring-shaped scars indicate an encounter with a giant squid. A piece of beak broken off in the whale's belly; a flash of ink dispersed as a blinding defense to allow the squid to escape-- these fragments of proof were all we had . . . until a giant squid was finally filmed in its natural habitat only two years ago. In this beautiful and clever nonfiction picture book about the giant squid, Candace Fleming and Eric Rohmann explore, both visually and poetically, this hidden creature's mysterious life.
