Published for the very first time in its own volume, Tolkien's remarkable tale about a painter whose obsession with detail prevents him from finishing his great work. Niggle is a painter. Not a very successful one, partly because he has so many other things to do. For some time he has been obsessed with one particular canvas - a curious picture of a tree with a vast landscape stretching out behind it. The painting keeps getting bigger and bigger, but Niggle has a journey to make. In 1939 Tolkien was despairing of ever bringing his great work The Lord of the Rings to a conclusion. One morning he woke up with the story Leaf by Niggle complete in his mind and wrote it down. This poignant story, about an artist on a curious journey, is often seen as an allegory of the writer's own creative process and life. Published to coincide with a new touring stage production of the story, this is the first time the story has been published in its own volume, enabling readers to savour one of Tolkien's most elegant, haunting and least-known short stories.

HarperCollins is proud to present its new range of best-loved, essential classics. Here is one of Thomas Hardy's most popular novels, soon to be released as a major motion picture in May 2015. `I shall do one thing in this life - one thing certain - that is, love you, and long for you, and keep wanting you till I die' Independent and spirited, Bathsheba Everdene owns the hearts of three men. Striving to win her love in different ways, their relationships with Bathsheba complicate her life in bucolic Wessex - and cast shadows over their own. With the morals and expectations of rural society weighing heavily upon her, Bathsheba experiences the torture of unrequited love and betrayal, and discovers how random acts of chance and tragedy can dramatically alter life's course. The first of Hardy's novels to become a major literary success, Far from the Madding Crowd explores what it means to live and to love.

HarperCollins is proud to present its new range of best-loved, essential classics. 'The rain pattered dismally against the panes, and my candle was nearly burnt out, when, by the glimmer of the half-extinguished light, I saw the dull yellow eye of the creature open...' Victor Frankenstein's monster is stitched together from the limbs of the dead, taken from 'the dissecting room and the slaughter-house'. The result is a grotesque being who, rejected by his maker and starved of human companionship, sets out on a journey to seek his revenge. In the most famous gothic horror story ever told, Shelley confronts the limitations of science, the nature of human cruelty and the pathway to forgiveness. Begun when Mary Shelley was only eighteen years old and published two years later, this chilling tale of a young scientist's desire to create life - and the consequences of that creation - still resonate today.

Het Sallie Riehl oorhaastig beloftes gemaak voordat sy vir die somer weggegaan het?

Sallie Riehl droom nog altyd daarvan om ten minste een keer te reis voordat sy by die kerk aansluit. Daarom is sy in ekstase toe sy die geleentheid kry om diť somer as ’n kinderoppasser vir ’n welgestelde familie in Cape May te gaan werk. Maar selfs al moet sy slegs tydelik van haar ouerhuis in Paradise afskeid neem, beteken dit dat sy haar doop met nog ’n jaar sal moet uitstel en dat sy die man met wie sy veronderstel is om uit te gaan, moet agterlaat.

Die weke wat sy in Cape May deurbring, is onvergeetlik – deels weens Kevin, ’n jong Mennonitiese man wie se vriendskap sy gou begin koester. Het sy oorhaastig beloftes gemaak, of sal sy slegs by die huis kry wat sy die meeste begeer?

Brady Bradshaw was ’n kind toe sy ma in die Oklahoma City-bomaanval gesterf het. Elke jaar besoek Brady die gedenkterrein op die herdenking. Dit is op diť dag meer as ’n dekade tevore dat hy Jenna Phillips ontmoet het. Sy was ook ’n kind toe haar ouers in die bomaanval dood is. Brady en Jenna het ’n diep hartsverbintenis ervaar en ’n enkele onvergeetlike dag saam deurgebring by die gedenkterrein. Brady het Jenna daarna nooit weer gesien nie, maar elke jaar wanneer hy terugkeer, los hy vir haar ’n brief in die hoop dat hy haar weer sal vind. Hierdie jaar gaan Ashley Baxter Blake en haar suster Kari Baxter Taylor saam met hul gesinne op reis, en dit sluit ’n besoek aan die bekende Herdenkingsboom in Oklahoma City in.

Hope Harbor se polisiehoof, Lexie Graham, het haar hande vol. Nie net maak sy haar seun alleen groot nie, maar daar is ook ’n skielike vlaag van vandalisme en diefstal in haar kusdorp. Daar is dus nie tyd vir enigiets anders in haar lewe nie, insluitend romanse. Adam Stone, ’n voormalige misdadiger, is ook nie op soek na liefde nie. Hoe ironies dan dat die eerste vrou wat sy aandag trek die polisiehoof is. Maar om te wens dat dinge anders kon wees, is net dwaas.

Wanneer Lexie egter Adam se hulp vra met ’n jong seun wat betrek word by die vandalisme, begin die vonke spat. Hoe langer hulle saamwerk, hoe duideliker word dit dat God dalk ’n ander toekoms vir hulle in gedagte het as wat hulle hul kan voorstel.

HarperCollins is proud to present its new range of best-loved, essential classics. 'We are in Transylvania; and Transylvania is not England. Our ways are not your ways, and there shall be to you many strange things.' Earnest and naive solicitor Jonathan Harker travels to Transylvania to organise the estate of the infamous Count Dracula at his crumbling castle in the ominous Carpathian Mountains. Through notes and diary entries, Harker keeps track of the horrors and terrors that beset him at the castle, telling his fiance Mina of the Count's supernatural powers and his own imprisonment. Although Harker eventually manages to escape and reunite with Mina, his experiences have led to a mental breakdown of sorts. Meanwhile in England, Mina's friend Lucy has been bitten and begins to turn into a vampire. With the help of Professor Van Helsing, a previous suitor of Lucy's, Seward, and Lucy's fiance Holmwood attempt to thwart Count Dracula and his attempts on Lucy and consequently Mina's life. Arguably the most enduring Gothic novel of the 19th Century, Bram Stoker's Dracula is as chilling today in its depiction of the vampire world and its exploration of Victorian values as it was at its time of publication.

The Skeleton Key (1919) was the first detective novel published by Collins, ushering in the Golden Age, the Crime Club, and 100 years of remarkable crime fiction that would follow. A body is discovered after a shooting party in the grounds of a country house in Hampshire. The police are called in, and a clever young detective, Sergeant Ridgway, begins to unravel a much more complicated and brutal case of murder than was first suspected. But has he met his match with Le Sage, a chess-playing Baron, who is convinced that the answers lie not in Hampshire but in Paris? After 20 years of writing in various genres, The Skeleton Key was Bernard Capes' crowning achievement, as he died shortly after completing the book. Introduced by Hugh Lamb, whose anthology The Black Reaper resurrected Capes' reputation as one of the best horror writers of his generation, the book also includes its original tribute to Capes by G. K. Chesterton, author of the Father Brown mysteries.
