Reginald Worthington is a vindictive man. He blames US Marshal Mason Sadler for the death of his only child, the former Mrs. Sadler. Now Worthington wants revenge. Enlisting the services of a highly skilled team of cutthroats, he dispatches them to Tombstone with orders to kill Sadler and anyone he cares about, especially Belle Dubois, the Bird Cage Theater Madame and the love of his life who just happens to be the new Mrs. Sadler. Not leaving the Marshal's demise to chance, Worthington also engages the talents of the Professor and his latest invention, a quadcopter mounted with a Gatling Gun. His mission? Kill Sadler, even if it means destroying Tombstone in the process. Expecting Worthington's retribution, the Marshal assembles his own team: the ever resourceful Belle Dubois who just happens to be a Pinkerton agent; two Chiricahua Machinists and their single-seater airships; Johnny Ringo, a gunslinger of questionable repute; and two walking dead, one a 350-year-old conquistador and the other a recently murdered miner. Right now, things aren't looking too good for the Marshal and his motley crew. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Steve Wannall.

One day while marking essay papers he found himself writing 'In a hole in the ground there lived a hobbit' - and worldwide renown awaited him.Humphrey Carpenter was given unrestricted access to all Tolkien’s papers and interviewed his friends and family. From these sources he follows the long and painful process of creation that produced The Lord of the Rings and The Silmarillion and offers a wealth of information about the life and work of the 20th century's most cherished author. 1.

Eleven Rare Stamps = Death in Six Figures...."Fresh background material and a fine storytelling knack." (Lewisville Courier-Journal)Jonathan Knox was an auctioneer of somewhat dubious repute with a photographic memory. So when a frightened woman offered him a discount on eleven of the rarest stamps in existence, worth something like $500,000, he became suspicious. He figured also that if the stamps had been stolen he might net a pretty reward by returning them to their rightful owner. But he couldn't find a single collector willing to admit to owning them. And when the girl who had originally offered them was murdered, Knox knew that he'd be the next one canceled unless he could find the person who would pay the growing postage-due bill from the devil's own mail carrier. That's when the auctioneer found himself forced to play very reluctant sleuth, with his own life as the stakes.In this colorful, never-reprinted 1950s classic you will encounter:Jonathan Knox: This auctioneer's photographic memory coupled with his lack of scruples made him a detested necessity to many people. And, too often, it also marked him for murder.Elly Watson: She was better at bargaining than Knox. But when she gave him a bargain - it was more than he bargained for.Edmund Dorsey deLong: Like many philatelists, he would stop at nothing for his stamp collection. Not even a killing.Henrietta Noyes: They had to kill her to break her hold on them. So they targeted her for murder.Louis Plummer: His customers were interested in his goods, but not where they came from. This case was the exception.Everett Kirkland: He should never have been an actor - too many people had seen his face. That could make it unhealthy for a man involved in murder. 1. Language: English.

CANTERBURY TALES BY GEOFFREY CHAUCER INTRODUCTION GETS born on the edge of a new era stand in peculiar danger of being misunderstood and depreciated by the generations that follow. Since time never stands still, and one age is forever melting into the next, any poet has to take a rather desperate chance of .appealing to readers beyond his own day. There is always the possibility, to be sure, that he may be more highly esteemed than by his contempo rariesa faint hope that has buoyed up many who were destined to drown in the waters of oblivion but this does not often happen. The inevitable revaluation usually marks the poet down to a lower figure. Sometimes he has to wait a few centuries be tore he is understood and appreciated again. John Donne is an example in point. If the shift of ideas and taste can be so upsetting, what is likely to be the fate of a poet who happens to write while his medium q expression is in process of change? Suppose the form of verbs and nouns is alteref suppose some pronouns go out and others come in, suppose the habits of speech and tlft meaning of words become very different within a century or sq after he dies. His chances of continuing fame will bdby that much more reduced. If he continues in high repute, illnust be because of qualities in his work that can be seen and appreciated despite difficulties of language as well as changes of opinion and taste, Geoffrey Chauceg met triumphantly both theser tests. HeKad perfected from the speech of educatscl folk in London at his time a poetical instrument a flexible and melodious, as capable of expressing a wide range of feelings and ides, as any English author has had at his comman But the speech of London changed very rapidly after his death in 1400, A century later the language was on the verge of becoming what we call modern English, and in fifty years more it was the native tongue of Spenser and Shakespeare. At the same time the ideas of men, together with the political and social fabric in which xhey found expression, changed with equal rapidity. Medieval England became Tudor England. Chaucers language had by this time become archaic, as hard to understand as it is in the twentieth century, or indeed harder, since we have better editions with the notes and glossaries that scholars have industriously com piled. The codes according to which he thought and felt and acted had become oldfashioned, too, though not so remote as they are to us. Yet men like Spenser and Sidney, who loved poetry, recognized Chaucers worth. No change of speech or fashion in that century, or any other, has been able to obscure it. The men and women whom his imagination created have kept alive, even when they have had tt be seen darkly through texts that falsified almost every line he wrote.
