7. Metallica Club Dayz 1982 - 1984 (Large Print 16pt) - Bill Hale

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

Metallica: The Club Dayz is a collection of photographs of the now legendary rock band Metallica, between 1982 and 1984. This book contains rare and exclusive photographs from six of the band's earliest performances including their first shows in San Francisco at The Stone and The Old Waldorf which featured the original lineup with Dave Mustaine (guitar) and Ron McGovney (bass), Cliff Burton's introductory gig with the band at The Stone, the last Metallica show with Dave Mustaine, and Kirk Hammett's Metallica debut. As chief photographer of Metal Rendezvous International, a groundbreaking heavy rock magazine that was published throughout the '80s, Bill Hale was given unlimited access to hang out with and photograph this then - fledgling metal band. His job at the time was to capture the band onstage and offstage and provide the magazine with unique photographs of Metallica, from the band showcasing their brazen live energy in concert, to unveiling some of their crazy and unpredictable backstage antics. Bill Hale was right there from the very beginning, capturing the band before, during and after their performances. He was at every one of their early Bay Area shows, without the safety of a photo pit, crushed among the savage crowd as they head - banged fearlessly to the music of their local heroes. Here, for the first time Bill Hale opens up his photo vault. Witness one of the greatest rock bands of all time during their embryonic stage. Influenced musically by the new breed of British metal yet epitomizing the punk rock attitude, Metallica's loud, snotty and don't five a fuck attitude is very evident in these photographs. Most of the photos in this book have never been published and many of the images have never before been revealed to the public. Metallica: The Club Dayz is a long lost chapter of this band's visual history.

10. Planet of the Apes An Unofficial Companion (Large Print 16pt) - David Hofstede

Largeprint (Paperback) Our price: £19.99  - Click book title for availability and further details

The unauthorized history of one of the most popular movies of all time. Released in 1967, Planet of the Apes was a top - ten box - office hit that captivated audiences with its provocative vision of the future. Over the next decade it spawned four sequels, a television series, an animated series, two comic books, and hundreds of merchandise tie - ins. To some, the Apes projects were a campy, sci - fi blast, with colourful characters and delightfully over - the - top performances. But others took the stories more seriously, as allegories on man's struggles with such issues as race, intolerance, and protecting of the environment.
Though there hasn't been a new Apes movie since 1974, the popularity of the original films and TV series has endured and, if anything, expanded in the interim. When director Tim Burton's remake of the original Planet of the Apes is released in the summer of 2001, interest in the phenomenon is certain to be rekindled on a prodigious scale.
Planet of the Apes: An Unofficial Companion is a comprehensive look at all aspects of Planet of the Apes, featuring interviews, reviews, complete cast and credit information, and a behind - the - scenes look at what made this quirky science - fiction series an enduring classic.

11. Russell Crowe A Life in Stories (Large Print 16pt) - Gabor H. Wylie

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

In this innovative biography of one of Hollywood's most recently crowned kings, Gabor H. Wylie gives Russell Crowe fans what they've been longing for - the stories that make up a lifetime, little anecdotal gems strung together like pearls on a necklace. The star of Gladiator, The Insider, and L.A. Confidential is revealed as never before. From Crowe's New Zealand roots to his emotional Oscar triumph, Wylie traces his journey to stardom with true stories that have textured his life along the way. Imagine Crowe's campy portrayal of transvestite Frank N. Furter in an Australian stage production of The Rocky Horror Picture Show. Or the moment Crowe revealed to his shocked father that, since the family couldn't afford to send him to university to study history as he had planned, he intended to make his way as a performer. This is Russell Crowe - the dedicated musician, the acclaimed actor, the fascinating man - rendered in the most intimate medium we know: the stories of his life.
''Crowe comes across as a complex persona here - half boozing, driven machismo; half tender, loyal, sentimental, and ethical. Older teenage readers will enjoy this fast read.''

Voice of Youth Advocates, June 2002

12. Workbook Memos & Dispatches on Writing (Large Print 16pt) - Steven Heighton

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

Since selections first appeared in the New Quarterly and the National Post as part of ''The Afterword,'' Steven Heighton's memos and dispatches to himself - a writer's pointed, cutting take on his own work and the work of writing - have been tweeted and retweeted, discussed and tacked to bulletin boards everywhere. Coalesced, completed, and collected here for the first time, a wholly new kind of book has emerged, one that's as much about creative process as it is about created product, at once about living life and the writing life. &Idquo; stick to a form that bluntly admits its own limitation and partiality and makes a virtue of both things,'' Heighton writes in his foreword, ''a form that lodges no claim to encyclopedic completeness, balance, or conclusive truth. At times, this form (I'm going to call it the memo) is a hybrid of the epigram and the pr cis, or of the aphorism and the abstract, the maxim and the debater's initial be - it - resolved. At other times it's a meditation in the Aurelian sense, a dispatch - to - self that aspires to address other selves - readers - as well.'' It's in these very aspirations, reaching both back into and forward in time - and, ultimately, outside of the pages of the book itself - that Heighton offers perhaps the freshest, most provocative picture of what it means to create the literature of the modern world.

16. BITCH IS BACK - Cathi Hanauer

Largeprint (Paperback) Our price: £19.99  - Click book title for availability and further details

Pai Gow is the biggest gambling game in the world. It is a game played with dice and with 32 Chinese dominoes. Although it is an ancient game, its popularity has greatly increased in recent years and it is now featured in almost every major gambling casino in the world. It is common for a player to bet $5000 (five thousand US dollars) on a single hand of Pai Gow. When I was playing Pai Gow recently in the Oaks Card Room in Emeryville California, I was betting the minimum $10 on my hand of Pai Gow, while the man sitting next to me was betting $5000 on the same hand. Added together, a total of $10,000 (ten thousand dollars) was bet on that one hand. In the Pai Gow game I was playing in, the banker, who is just one of the players and not the house, was matching all the bets of the other players, Thus, that one player stood to win or to lose $10,000 on just that one hand of Pai Gow. Nowadays, almost every major casino in Nevada, Atlantic City and Macao and most other large casinos around the world offer Pai Gow. Most of the big card rooms in California offer Pai Gow as well.
