For the first eighteen years of her life, her widowed mother Judith ruled the roost. Now Lucy's husband, her seven-year-old daughter and even Buster the cat boss her about.

After his flight to Calgary, Canada, suddenly ends in a fiery crash, fifty-eight-year-old Tony Parker is rescued by a stranger. Shaken, but with few injuries, Tony is shocked when he looks in the mirror and stares into the face of a teenager. But the biggest shock is yet to come when Tony is told he has died and is now living in an alternate world. Introducing himself as Max, the stranger announces that Tony is now residing in a secular afterlife rumoured to be built from memory where all the regulars still have a debt to pay. Populated by characters such as Marlene Dietrich, Mata Hari, Charles Ponzi, and Mozart, who often repeat blunders made during their lifetimes, the world is ruled by an integration council assembled to deal with problem migrants such as Tony. As Tony attempts to acclimate to his new home, he is paired with Sebastian Melmoth, also known as Oscar Wilde, who becomes his mentor assigned to guide him through adventurous mayhem barely held together by con artist Till Eulenspiegel. The Owl’s Mirror is the compelling tale of one man’s whimsical journey through a strange and nonsensical afterlife.

As humans, we are drawn to predators like no other group of animals. They are the epitome of form and function, and have a level of perfection that we revere. In 2009, wildlife expert, conservationist and photographer David Plummer was diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease. Rather than let it defeat him, he was galvanised to grab life by the horns and achieve the perfect wildlife shot. Over the next seven years, he did much more than that. The result is this breathtaking collection of over 200 of his best and favourite photographs of exotic and wild animals in their natural habitats. To capture them, David travelled to some of the most remote and stunning locations across the world, from Africa to India to the Galápagos Islands and back to his native England. 7 Years of Camera Shake showcases seven years of immersive and illuminating photography: of predators on the prowl, of prey in the clutches of death, of the inexplicable synchronisation of nature, of the beautiful relationship between mother and child, and much, much more. Plummer’s work has been featured in wildlife publications and national and international press, and now the work he has produced since his diagnosis is showcased here, accompanied by his thoughts and anecdotes on how he achieved each perfect shot.

You're crazy ... She'll take over and shove us out. I can just see this place in winter: no carpets, acres of wet newspaper underfoot, family huddled under blankets while the pig hogs the fire.' Richard and Bookey Peek hadn't planned on a warthog, any more than one would plan a tidal wave, a tornado or triplets, but on Stone Hills game sanctuary, natural disasters have a way of happening when you least expect them. Through Zimbabwe's darkest hours, Stone Hills has become a world in itself, a place where you might share your shower with an owl or your bed with a baby squirrel. Take a fresh look at the hospitality game with a couple whose crocodiles are named after unpopular guests. And follow the barefoot young David and his playmate, the warthog Poombi, as she relinquishes her place on the sofa to return to the wild - much to her indignation. Engaging and delightfully readable, this is a testament to one family's passion for Africa's wildlife and their conviction that nothing can change the essential nature of the land and its people. All the Way Home is the exhilarating and intensely moving story of a fiercely protected piece of Africa in the heart of the majestic Matobo Hills.
