The Raven Warrior, Alice Borchardt

(Tales of Guinevere #2)

:: Alice Borchardt takes us back to the amazing world of a re-envisioned Camelot in the continuing Tales of Guinevere.
Remarkably strong, magically talented, a match for friend and foe alike, Guinevere has come into womanhood--and faces a new relationship with Lancelot that will lead to the sharp-edged triangle of legend.
With familiar names repositioned for a new generation of Arthurian fans--evil Merlin, conniving Igrane, complex Lancelot, tainted Arthur, and of course, warrior Guinevere--Alice Borchardt's creation stands as a testament to the power of imagination.

The Life and Opinions of Tristam Shandy, Laurence Sterne

:: Laurence Sterne's topsy-turvy masterpiece is a novel about writing a novel — producing a fictional world that is as strange and wonderful as the process of its creation. It begins at the moment of Tristram Shandy's conception and shifts relentlessly into a hilarious series of disconnected episodes starring the hero's family, friends, and neighbours.

The memorable cast of characters wanders in and out of the playful web of Sterne's deliberately visual text treatment, which includes endless dashes and asterisks, one-sentence chapters, unusual graphic renderings, and blank pages that invite the reader to interact with the book.

Impossible to categorize, Tristram Shandy is a rare celebration of the art of fiction. ::

The Years of Rice and Salt, Kim Stanley Robinson

:: It is the fourteenth century and one of the most apocalyptic events in human history is set to occur: the coming of the Black Death. History teaches us that a third of Europe's population was destroyed. But what if? What if the plague killed 99 percent of the population instead? How would the world have changed? (...)

This is a universe where the first ship to reach the New World travels across the Pacific Ocean from China and colonization spreads from west to east. This is a universe where the Industrial Revolution is triggered by the world's greatest scientific minds - in India. This is a universe where Buddhism and Islam are the most influential and practised religions and Christianity is merely a historical footnote.

Through the eyes of soldiers and kings, explorers and philosophers, slaves and scholars, Robinson renders an immensely rich tapestry. Rewriting history and probing the most profound questions as only he can, Robinson shines his extraordinary light on the place of religion, culture, power, and even love on such an Earth. From the steppes of Asia to the shores of the Western Hemisphere, from the age of Akbar to the present and beyond, here is the stunning story of the creation of a new world. ::
