Since his first appearance in "Beeton’s Christmas Annual" in 1887, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s Sherlock Holmes has been one of the most beloved fictional characters ever created. Now, in two paperback volumes, Bantam presents all fifty-six short stories and four novels featuring Conan Doyle’s classic hero - a truly complete collection of Sherlock Holmes’s adventures in crime!
Volume II begins with "The Hound of the Baskervilles", a haunting novel of murder on eerie Grimpen Moor, which has rightly earned its reputation as the finest murder mystery ever written. "The Valley of Fear" matches Holmes against his archenemy, the master of imaginative crime, Professor Moriarty. In addition, the loyal Dr. Watson has faithfully recorded Holmes’s feats of extraordinary detection in such famous cases as the thrilling "The Adventure of the Red Circle" and the twelve baffling adventures from "The Case Book of Sherlock Holmes".
Conan Doyle’s incomparable tales bring to life a Victorian England of horse-drawn cabs, fogs, and the famous lodgings at 221B Baker Street, where for more than forty years Sherlock Holmes earned his undisputed reputation as the greatest fictional detective of all time.

'For a few moments this afternoon, it rained on the moon'. An astronaut in full spacesuit appears out of thin air in a busy shopping centre. Maybe it's a publicity stunt. A photo shows a well-dressed woman in a red coat lying dead at the edge of a crater on the dark side of the moon - beside her beloved dog 'Poochie'. Maybe it's a hoax. But as the Doctor and Amy find out, these are just minor events in a sinister plan to take over every human being on earth. The plot centres on a secret military base on the moon - that's where Amy and the TARDIS are. The Doctor is back on Earth, and without the TARDIS there's no way he can get to the moon to save Amy and defeat the aliens. Or is there? The Doctor discovers one last great secret that could save humanity: Apollo 23. This is a thrilling, all new adventure featuring the Doctor and Amy, as played by Matt Smith and Karen Gillan in the spectacular hit series from BBC Television.

In real life, goshawks resemble sparrow hawks the way leopards resemble housecats. Bigger, yes. But bulkier, bloodier, deadlier, scarier, and much, much harder to see. Birds of deep woodland, not gardens, they're the birdwatchers dark grail. From the age of twelve, when she first saw a trained goshawk, Helen Macdonald had determined to become a falconer. She learned the arcane terminology and read all the classic books, especially T.H. White's tortured masterpiece The Goshawk, that describes White's struggle to train a hawk as a spiritual contest. When her father dies and she is knocked sideways by grief, she turns to White's book again and becomes obsessed with the idea of training her own goshawk. She buys Mabel for GBP800 on a Scottish quayside and takes her home to Cambridge. Then she fills the freezer with hawk food and unplugs the phone, ready to embark on the long, strange business of trying to train this widest of animals. To train a hawk you must watch it like a hawk, and so gain the ability to predict what it will do next. Eventually you don't see the hawk's body language at all. You seem to feel what it feels. The hawk's apprehension becomes your own. As the days passed and I put myself in the hawk's wild mind to tame her, my humanity was burning away.

SOON TO BE AN ORIGINAL SERIES ON MTV In the far future, unbeknown to humankind, an apocalyptic war is brewing. Fearsome, vengeful Demons rage at the boundaries of the world, held at bay by a spell called the Forbidding. But now that barrier is dying. Evil is beginning to break through.

But this epic battle seeks him out, for he holds the Elfstones: mysterious protective talismans passed down by his grandfather. Wil is recruited to act as guardian to the Elf girl Amberle, who must venture far to deliver a seed that will help the Forbidding to grow again. The fate of civilization rests upon her shoulders - and the completion of her mission rests upon Wil's. Now, as the forces of darkness descend, Wil and Amberle embark on a perilous journey, placing their faith in each other to survive the bloodthirsty terrors that await. Praise for Terry Brooks Shannara was one of my favorite fictional worlds growing up, and I look forward to many return trips. Karen Russell, author of Swamplandia! If Tolkien is the grandfather of modern fantasy, Terry Brooks is its favorite uncle. Peter V. Brett, author of The Skull Throne A great storyteller, Terry Brooks creates rich epics filled with mystery, magic, and memorable characters. Christopher Paolini, author of Eragon.

Wladimir Kaminer sucht das Grüne: Schrebergarten war gestern - nun lockt das Leben auf dem Land.
Wer träumt nicht vom eigenen kleinen Garten Eden? Wladimir Kaminer findet ihn in einem Dorf vor den Toren Berlins. Den Schrebergarten hatte seine Familie aufgeben müssen, da man deren Freude an "spontaner Vegetation" nicht recht teilen wollte. Nun liegt ihr Paradies in Glücklitz - mit einem Häuschen am See, dem angeblich nördlichsten Weinberg der Welt und mit eigenwilligen Einwohnern, die bald mit den neuen Nachbarn Freundschaft schließen. Für Wladimir Kaminer entpuppt sich das Dorfleben als Abenteuer samt Torpedokäfern und Rettichbeeten, der Organisation einer "Russendisko" in der Dorfscheune, verschwiegenen Fischen, einem Wetter wie im Bermudadreieck - und natürlich jeder Menge Geschichten...

From a renowned historian comes a groundbreaking narrative of humanity’s creation and evolution—a #1 international bestseller—that explores the ways in which biology and history have defined us and enhanced our understanding of what it means to be “human.”
One hundred thousand years ago, at least six different species of humans inhabited Earth. Yet today there is only one—homo sapiens. What happened to the others? And what may happen to us?
Most books about the history of humanity pursue either a historical or a biological approach, but Dr. Yuval Noah Harari breaks the mold with this highly original book that begins about 70,000 years ago with the appearance of modern cognition. From examining the role evolving humans have played in the global ecosystem to charting the rise of empires, Sapiens integrates history and science to reconsider accepted narratives, connect past developments with contemporary concerns, and examine specific events within the context of larger ideas.
Dr. Harari also compels us to look ahead, because over the last few decades humans have begun to bend laws of natural selection that have governed life for the past four billion years. We are acquiring the ability to design not only the world around us, but also ourselves. Where is this leading us, and what do we want to become?
Featuring 27 photographs, 6 maps, and 25 illustrations/diagrams, this prvocative and insightful work is sure to spark debate and is essential reading for aficionados of Jared Diamond, James Gleick, Matt Ridley, Robert Wright, and Sharon Moalem.

#1NEW YORK TIMESBESTSELLER Jack Reacher returns in another fast-moving, action-packed, suspenseful book fromLee Child. You can leave the army, but the army doesn't leave you. Not always. Not completely, notes Jack Reacher and sure enough, the retired military cop is soon pulled back into service. This time, for the State Department and the CIA. Someone has taken a shot at the president of France in the City of Light. The bullet was American. The distance between the gunman and the target was exceptional. How many snipers can shoot from three-quarters of a mile with total confidence? Very few, but John Kott an American marksman gone bad is one of them. And after fifteen years in prison, he s out, unaccounted for, and likely drawing a bead on a G8 summit packed with enough world leaders to tempt any assassin. If anyone can stop Kott, it's the man who beat him before: Reacher. And though he d rather work alone, Reacher is teamed with Casey Nice, a rookie analyst who keeps her cool with Zoloft. But they're facing a rough road, full of ruthless mobsters, Serbian thugs, close calls, double-crosses and no backup if they re caught. All the while Reacher can t stop thinking about the woman he once failed to save. But he won't let that that happen again. Not this time. Not Nice. Reacher never gets too close. But now a killer is making it personal. Praise for Personal The best one yet. Stephen King Reacher is the stuff of myth, a great male fantasy... One of this century's most original, tantalizing pop-fiction heroes... Child does a masterly job of bringing his adventure to life with endless surprises and fierce suspense. The Washington Post Yet another satisfying page-turner. Entertainment Weekly Reacher is always up for a good fight, most entertainingly when he goes mano a mano with a seven-foot, 300-pound monster of a mobster named Little Joey. But it's Reacher the Teacher who wows here. Marilyn Stasio, The New York Times Jack Reacher is today's James Bond, a thriller hero we can t get enough of. I read every one as soon as it appears.
