How different could the world have been, then and now, if lead-ups and events surrounding the Second World War had occurred vastly differently? What if different alliances had been formed through dramatic circumstances and, subsequently, the tyrants had been unable to wield their evil powers?
In the latter half of the 1930s, Russia and Germany are going through the motions of getting on well with each other until a series of “events” occur. A spectacular explosion kills many fascists including Hitler and the Russians decide to seize the moment and invade. Britain and France declare war on Russia and become allied to a Germany under new leadership. There are more shocks when Stalin disappears just when the Russians seem on the brink of success.
Germany, however, has a great deal of support and there are great sea powers, especially Britain, who begin to demonstrate their vast reach. One of the smallest navies in existence also has a big say in subduing a mighty power.
A Career Carol is an irreverent take on the classic Christmas Carol, graduation commencement speakers, and Generation Z expectations. A wry and insightful take on how to successfully navigate a 30-to-40-year professional career.
A Career Carol, bridges analogue and digital eras. What constitutes a successful career may have dramatically changed over the last 50 years, but the deeper journey we make as human beings across different life cycles, is eternal.
Drs Schuster & Oxley’s take a different and decidedly modern approach to business and life advice. They set out to share real stories of how to navigate the big crises that most of us will have to navigate at some point. In the process, they give the past an entertaining and relevant future.
The world, and business literature in particular, is overdue for Shey Sinope. As we witness his journey from reclusive cynical social critic to tentative member of a flawed, and sometimes unkind society, we are amused, provoked, saddened, but ultimately uplifted.
A Garden of Flowers is a beautiful and heartwarming celebration of diversity and uniqueness. It reminds young readers that every person brings a valuable perspective to our world, making it a more vibrant and exciting place to live in.

The delightful full-page artwork accompanying the story adds a touch of magic, bringing to life the colorful world of flowers and their unique characteristics. The story acknowledges that just as every flower in a garden is different and beautiful, every person is beautifully unique and special in their own way. It teaches children the importance of accepting and celebrating differences and diversity, and how our differences make our world a dynamic and fascinating place to live in. After all, if all our colors were the same, we wouldn’t have rainbows.
This book hosts a compendium of my favourite recipes which can be cooked outdoors on a barbecue or using traditional indoor kitchen methods. In this book you will find good, honest cooking; meals that you will love to eat and love to serve to family and friends. None of the photography has been staged, every photo was taken just before the food was eaten, so again there is honesty in the way it is presented.
Most of the recipes are cooked using the more gentle, indirect barbecue method, positioning food away from the fire, thus reducing the risk of creating a bitter flavour caused by over-charring or burning.
So, whether you want to cook outside on your barbecue or indoors in your kitchen, there will be something in this book for you. I hope you enjoy recreating some of these recipes as much as I have enjoyed sharing them with you.

It’s Fashion Week and Lower Manhattan churns with construction on the third anniversary of 9/11, as Emma O’Farrell Paige arrives at the federal courthouse to depose her former boss, the diabolical villain behind a counterfeit perfume ring.

Under the guidance of mentor and boss Julian Petrenko, Emma masterminds the two-hundred-million-dollar fragrance deal with boy band sensation ‘UK Connection’.
