For years, the Ministry of Peculiar Occurrences has enjoyed the favor of Her Majesty the Queen. But even the oldest loyalties can turn in a moment… Having narrowly escaped the electrifying machinations of Thomas Edison, Books and Braun are looking forward to a relaxing and possibly romantic voyage home. But when Braun’s emergency signal goes off, all thoughts of recreation vanish. Braun’s street-wise team of child informants, the Ministry Seven, is in grave peril, and Books and Braun must return to England immediately. But when the intrepid agents finally arrive in London, the situation is even more dire than they imagined. The Ministry has been disavowed, and the Department of Imperial Inconveniences has been called in to decommission its agents in a most deadly fashion. The plan reeks of the Maestro’s dastardly scheming. Only, this time, he has a dangerous new ally—a duplicitous doctor whose pernicious poisons have infected the highest levels of society, reaching even the Queen herself... From the Paperback edition.

From the writers of the Ministry of Peculiar Occurrences comes the erotic novel you haven’t been waiting for. Anastasia Brassingware is a daughter of English aristocracy, but her station has been brought low by her father’s belief in ridiculous quick schemes. Now forced into penury, she must take any menial job. A chance meeting with enigmatic pineapple merchant, Lord Heathcliff Redd, has changed everything. Drawn in by his brooding ways, the maiden discovers the pineapple merchant’s darker pleasures, and technological wonders that do more than just core his tropical bounties with ease. Take caution, dear reader. This is a novel of shadow, of desire, and of wanton lust. This novella is not a collection of standing orders for a clandestine organization within Her Majesty’s government. No sir. No how. No way. Nowhere in this scintillating novel of erotic perversion are coded messages intended for agents that investigate the strange, the bizarre, and the unnatural. No. In this novella are pages of good British smut, just the way God intended. This is the story of a wide-eyed ingénue innocent to carnal pleasures, a wealthy English lord with a pineapple fetish, and fresh fruit bending to their will. No standing orders whatsoever. “I think a small part of me just died.” — Wellington Thornhill Books, Esq. “It made me rather tingly.” — H.J. Rodwell

For generations the world of Rahvas has been awash in holy war between the many temples of its gods and goddesses. Priests and priestesses have built towering monsters to destroy one another and prove their deity the One True God. But those temples also made two mistakes. When three little girls came out of the void where Gods are born, they mistake them for humans and let them live. Separated, Rowan, Vervain and Amaranth have lived out very different lives, but now they are coming of age. One lived as a temple acolyte, another as meat for the creation of progeny, while the third learns the magic of the atheists. As the sisters' spiritual power unfolds and they learn the truth of who they are, the temples and all those that fight for them will find a new war on their doorstep. Rahvas will become the physical and spiritual battleground between gods and monsters.

This book aims to contribute an alternative analysis and representation of contemporary Greek cultural landscapes. Cultural landscapes, including Greek ones, are both material and symbolic and as such they are products of human labour and social representations. The research identifies and documents the many facets and readings of Greek cultural landscapes, going beyond dominant touristic and picturesque approaches, which are exceptionally effective in erasing the social processes that define landscapes. In doing this, the research uses a novel methodology for the selection and documentation of 75 landscapes covering most of Greece. Aerial Photography (high and low oblique) is used for each particular landscape, in combination with scientific texts, terrestrial material (historical photos, maps, diagrams) and extracts from Greek literature.
