1. The Art of Alex Kurtagic 1989 - 2017 - Alex Kurtagic

Largeprint (Hardback) Our price: £52.99  - Click book title for availability and further details

Spanning nearly 30 years of the art of Alex Kurtagic, the present volume showcases five periods in the artist’s life. Mainly known for book and album cover illustration, including album covers for Black Metal bands such as Troll, Tormentor, and Dimmu Borgir, Kurtagic’s art explores the macabre, the satirical, and the sublime in a style that has been described as ‘filmic’ and ‘delightfully twisted’. Kurtagic’s work has been exhibited in Caracas, London, and Madrid; featured in Creative Review Choice, from among winning illustrators; and featured in Neil Aldis and James Sherry’s Heavy Metal Thunder: Album Covers that Rocked the World.

With a preface and introduction by the artist, the collection either digs into the background story or flies into deranged fictionalised vignettes inspired by the images. George Orwell or Louis-Ferdinand Céline may occasionally come to mind. Sometimes satirical, sometimes apocalyptic, the vignettes present a sarcastic meditation on the alarming, aggressive, or infuriating aspects of modern-day society. Readers should expect to be wrong-footed frequently, uncertain as to what might come with the next turn of the page.

2. An Unexpected Guest - Anne Korkeakivi

Largeprint (Paperback) Our price: £16.99  - Click book title for availability and further details

The definitive history of the military's decades-long investigation into mental powers and phenomena, from the author of Pulitzer Prize finalist The Pentagon's Brain and international bestseller Area 51.
This is a book about a team of scientists and psychics with top secret clearances.

For more than forty years, the U.S. government has researched extrasensory perception, using it in attempts to locate hostages, fugitives, secret bases, and downed fighter jets, to divine other nations' secrets, and even to predict future threats to national security. The intelligence agencies and military services involved include CIA, DIA, NSA, DEA, the Navy, Air Force, and Army -- and even the Joint Chiefs of Staff.

Now, for the first time, New York Times bestselling author Annie Jacobsen tells the story of these radical, controversial programs, using never before seen declassified documents as well as exclusive interviews with, and unprecedented access to, more than fifty of the individuals involved. Speaking on the record, many for the first time, are former CIA and Defense Department scientists, analysts, and program managers, as well as the government psychics themselves.

Who did the U.S. government hire for these top secret programs, and how do they explain their military and intelligence work? How do scientists approach such enigmatic subject matter? What interested the government in these supposed powers and does the research continue? Phenomena is a riveting investigation into how far governments will go in the name of national security.

8. The Book Of Secrets (Large Print 16pt) - Fiona Kidman

Largeprint (Paperback) Our price: £24.99  - Click book title for availability and further details

A classic, prize - winning novel about an epic migration and a lone woman haunted by the past in frontier Waipu. In the 1850s, a group of settlers established a community at Waipu in the northern part of New Zealand. They were led there by a stern preacher, Norman McLeod. The community had followed him from Scotland in 1817 to found a settlement in Nova Scotia, then subsequently to New Zealand via Australia. Their incredible journeys actually happened, and in this winner of the New Zealand Book Awards, Fiona Kidman breathes life and contemporary relevance into the facts by creating a remarkable fictional story of three women entangled in the migrations - Isabella, her daughter Annie and granddaughter Maria. McLeod's harsh leadership meant that anyone who ran counter to him had to live a life of secrets. The 'secrets' encapsulated the spirit of these women in their varied reactions to McLeod's strict edicts and connect the past to the present and future.

It is at this time Johnson discovers that the stranger prefers to be called Elohim. Being a religious scholar, Reese already knows that this name, in Hebrew, is the word for God. But he also knows that in some ancient cultures, it was used to describe the cadre of angels from whom Lucifer descended. In some, it was even used as the term for a group of aliens from another planet who came to colonize the Earth. Reese is now faced with the choice that the stranger is either God, the devil, or an alien from another planet. Other experts are brought in to talk to Elohim and, as a result, word leaks out to the press, who announce prematurely that God is on Earth. People and governments react strongly to the news, and it is during this turmoil that Elohim reveals what he has come to do. It is a plan that will affect all of humanity, and the timetable is only five days. Reese is now in a race against the clock as he attempts to determine whether Elohim's plan will be a wonderful event for mankind, or something truly horrifying. Events and characters lead to a surprising and monumental climax that will answer all of your questions and leave you breathless.

But when a cruel stroke of fortune sees Annie orphaned and outcast, she is forced to head for the goldfields in search of her grandfather, a legendary tracker. Determined and dangerously naive, she sets off with little but a swag full of hope - and is promptly robbed of it on the road. Her cries for help attract another sort of rogue: Jem Fox, the waster son of a wealthy silversmith, who's already in trouble with the law - up to his neatly trimmed eyebrows in gambling debts. And now he does something much worse. He 'borrows' a horse and rides after the thieves, throwing Annie over the saddle as he goes. What follows is a breakneck gallop through the Australian bush, a tale of mistaken identity and blind bigotry, of two headstrong opposites tossed together by fate, their lives entwined by a quest to get back home - and the irresistible forces of love.
