A NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER * A Telegraph Book of the Year * A New York Times Notable Book of the Year * A Washington Post Book of the Year * A Wall Street Journal Book of the Year * A Slate Book of the Year `Probably Chabon's greatest, a piece of sustained writing that will be hard to see outdone in 2017' The Times `Entirely sure footed, propulsive, the work of a master at his very best. The brilliance of Moonglow stands as a strident defence of the form itself, a bravura demonstration of the endless mutability and versatility of the novel' Observer `The world, like the Tower of Babel or my grandmother's deck of cards, was made out of stories, and it was always on the verge of collapse.' Moonglow unfolds as a deathbed confession. An old man, his tongue loosened by powerful painkillers, his memory stirred by the imminence of death, tells stories to his grandson, uncovering bits and pieces of a history long buried. Why did he try to strangle a former business partner with a telephone cord? What was he thinking when he and a buddy set explosives on a bridge in Washington, D.C.? What did he feel while he hunted down Wernher von Braun in Germany? And what did he see in the young girl he met in Baltimore after returning home from the war? From the Jewish slums of pre-war Philadelphia to the invasion of Germany, from a Florida retirement village to the penal utopia of a New York prison, from the heyday of the space programme to the twilight of `the American Century', Moonglow collapses an era into a single life and a lifetime into a single week.

Their revolution would ignite a continent... An epic novel set during one of the most savage and dramatic moments in European history. Greece, 1824 In the wild south, the people of the Mani have risen up against four hundred years of Ottoman rule. But initial triumph leads to bitter feuding among the Greek victors and the Sultan sends his vassal, Ibrahim Pasha of Egypt, to invade. Burning everything in his path, he is on the point of victory. Only the intervention of the Great Powers of France, Russia and Britain can save Greece. Hara, young daughter of a Maniot chief, is the fearless symbol of her people's spirit. When she rescues Greek Prince Tzanis from a shipwreck, on his way to deliver secret gold for the revolution, they fall in love but are forced apart by events. Yet a shared resolve to wreak vengeance on Turkish rule unites them again, and their heroism and sacrifice will ultimately inspire an unlikely band of men and women to join them in rescuing Greece. Will their plan to involve the Great Powers succeed before Greece is destroyed by fire? 'Wonderful history, adventure and a heart-breaking love story are brought thrillingly to life' - Kate Mosse

The million-copy bestseller, which is a ground-breaking meditation on war, memory, imagination, and the redemptive power of storytelling. `The Things They Carried' is, on its surface, a sequence of award-winning stories about the madness of the Vietnam War; at the same time it has the cumulative power and unity of a novel, with recurring characters and interwoven strands of plot and theme. But while Vietnam is central to `The Things They Carried', it is not simply a book about war. It is also a book about the human heart - about the terrible weight of those things we carry through our lives.

The superpowers hurtle towards global conflict, in this chillingly authentic vision of modern warfare from the world's #1 thriller writer.

The Muslim terrorists who destroyed the Soviet Union's largest petro-chemical plant thought they were striking a blow for freedom. What they had done, unknowingly, was fire the first shots in World War III.

Desperately short of oil, the Kremlin hawks see only one way of solving their problem: seize supplies in the Persian Gulf. To do that, they must first neutralize NATO's forces and eliminate their response – and so they develop Red Storm, a dazzling master plan of diplomatic subterfuge and intense re-armament.

The battle lines are drawn and Armageddon beckons…

"Packed with more nerve-shattering tension than anything in print today…gripping, audacious, brilliant storytelling at its very best."

The Irish Boer Woman is the second volume of the Brigid O’Meara trilogy (the first part was England Wants Your Gold, printed in 2015) that follows the life of an adventurous young Irish woman who is drawn into the intrigues and violence of the Jameson Raid of 1895, and later incarcerated in a British concentration camp during the Anglo Boer War for assisting active Boer commandos.

As an Irish nationalist, Brigid finds herself in the midst of a clash of cultures and worldviews. She is drawn into the conflict of the Anglo Boer War by identifying and entering the struggle of the Boers of the Transvaal to retain their independence, putting her into direct conflict with British authorities representing an expanding global empire. Adding to her emotional turmoil is her romantic involvement with a British Uitlander, who is facing charges of high treason by the Transvaal Boer Government.

Through the characters, the reader enters the harrowing realities of a war in which the two Boer Republics mobilized every man between 16 and 60 with no uniform, no money and no formal training to take on the might of the British Empire.

Having survived the trenches on the Western Front, Franz Becker has joined the Air Service and learns to fly in a fragile, unreliable machine. He passes his pilot's course and is posted to a two-seater squadron in the east, where he is responsible for flying the slow, vulnerable biplane while his observer defends them against Russian fighters with only a single machine-gun. Fought on vast open plains, the war in the East is one of movement. Germany's main ally is the tottering Austro-Hungarian Empire whose forces are unreliable and undermined by internal conflict. The Eastern Front would collapse without German support, as Franz and his comrades are only too aware. When the squadron is moved to the Western Front, they come face to face with skilful and determined opposition from French and English fighters, and the casualty rate mounts. Franz and his fellow pilots are keen to leave the lumbering two-seater aircraft for the agile and better-armed fighters, and to be the hunter instead of the hunted. At the same time Franz's closest friend, Karl von Leussow, is fighting for his life in the blood-soaked earth of Verdun, where his regimen is almost annihilated. He decides to follow Franz into the air - but first he has to stay alive.

'The greatest living author of epic fantasy' - Brandon Sanderson 'Guy Gavriel Kay's A Brightness Long Ago is a masterpiece; perhaps the finest work of one of the world's greatest living storytellers' - Fantasy Book Review ***One of Goodreads' Most Anticipated SFF Books of 2019*** Internationally bestselling author Guy Gavriel Kay's latest work is set in a world evoking early Renaissance Italy, with an extraordinary cast of characters. In a chamber overlooking the nighttime waterways of a maritime city, a man looks back on his youth and the people who shaped his life. Danio Cerra's intelligence won him entry to a renowned school, though he was only the son of a tailor. He took service at the court of a ruling count - and soon learned why that man was known as The Beast. Danio's fate changed the moment he recognized Adria Ripoli as she entered the count's chambers one night - intending to kill. Born to power, Adria had chosen a life of danger - and freedom - instead. Other vivid figures share the story: a healer determined to defy her expected lot; a charming, frivolous son of immense wealth; a religious leader more decadent than devout; and, affecting these lives and many more, two mercenary commanders, whose rivalry puts a world in the balance. Further praise for Guy Gavriel Kay 'Contemporary fiction's finest fantasist' Tor.com 'History and fantasy rarely come together as gracefully or readably as they do in the novels of Guy Gavriel Kay' Washington Post 'One of the (if not the) premiere fantasists of our time' The Financial Times 'Compulsively readable . . .

...No fewer than two hundred thousand Germans were already upon English soil! The outlook grew blacker every hour. Eight years before the outbreak of the First World War, when national hysteria over the supposed presence of German spies in England gripped the country, the journalist and novelist William Le Queux imagined a catastrophic scenario in which the German army invaded Britain in a shock attack on the east coast. His novel, first published as The Invasion of 1910 and serialised in the Daily Mail, was intended as a warning to military strategists and the government of the time that England was unprepared against the real threat of military assault. It sold over one million copies and was translated into twenty-seven languages. This chilling story chronicles a fictional war fought on British homeland, with detailed accounts of battles and defence lines in real locations envisaged in conjunction with the defence experts of the time. It also brings to life the realities of food shortages, propaganda, espionage, media coverage and the vulnerability of financial institutions during an attack. The story begins with an innocuous conversation between two journalists who have lost telegraphic connection with Great Yarmouth but quickly unfolds as news emerges of a full-blown invasion. One by one strategic cities - Birmingham, Manchester and Sheffield - are abandoned to the German army until events culminate in the battle for London. More than an entertaining read, this novel, complete with fictional proclamations from Kaiser Wilhelm II, shines a spotlight on the fears and hopes of Britain at the beginning of the twentieth century and heralds a very different idea of warfare from the time before the Great War.
