The Monster is considered one of Crane´s top four stories, but is left out of many collections. Don´t miss it. It´s a wonderful telling about the town of Whilomville, in which Henry Johnson lives and other Crane stories are set as well, including ´´The Knife´´. Henry is a buddy of the Doctor´s son, Jimmie. They mutually discuss the Doctor, his doings, and their shortcomings. Henry takes care of the Doctor´s place, drives him on his country rounds, and serves as a mentor to Jimmie. Henry is a handsome black man respected and watched in the community. He has style and panache. He struts like a lord in his finery while having a good word for everyone. One night there is a terrible fire, which turns out to be at the Doctor´s. Henry bravely saves Jimmie, but is permanently scarred in the process. The town is scarred of Henry because of his disfigurement. The Doctor stands up to him because he can. But the tragic last scene, as memorable as any disappointment in literature, is when his wife has invited 16 women over for her Wednesday tea and only one shows up. This one is the wife of the grocer who warns the Doctor that he better get Henry out of town or he will be ostracized. To console his wife he says, ´´Don´t cry Grace. Don´t cry.´´ The story goes on with ´´As he sat holding her head on his shoulder, Trescott (The Doctor) found himself occasionally trying to count the cups. There were fifteen of them.´´ Those 15 cups represent them being cast out of the town´s center forevermore. Another Crane beauty.

V´kit´no´sat and Star Force must unite for a special project in order to find a better way to fight the Hadarak. This is Book 54 in the Star Force Universe series. The series details the discovery of Earth’s true origins and how it was originally a colony of a galaxy-spanning dinosaur empire called the V’kit’no’sat. A rebellion by the Rit’ko’sor (raptors) hurt the empire badly and caused it to contract, leaving the frontier worlds abandoned. After Earth was attacked and purged by the raptors, the few V’kit’no’sat survivors fled the planet never to return. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Stephen Day.

World snooker champion Ronnie O´Sullivan´s first-volume autobiography Ronnie was a major best seller, acclaimed for its candour and insight into the life of a top sports star. In his second book, Ronnie reflects on how much of his life has been running away or running towards (often inadvisable) things. Running is my drug. To be honest, drugs (and alcohol) used to be my drug, but now I´ve got the healthiest addiction going. Running is what has helped me fight my demons, win five world snooker championships, and cope with all the crap life´s thrown at me. They say what doesn´t kill you makes you stronger, and in this book I look at everything that hasn´t killed me, but has had a good go - my addictive personality, depression, my dad´s murder conviction, the painful break-up with the mother of my children, the difficulty of balancing family life with that of a sportsman. Those are the downers. But it´s also about the great things in my life - my kids, snooker, my dad´s release from prison, great mates who have helped me, and the psychiatrist Dr Steve Peters who has taught me how not to run away from life when it gets tricky. For the first time, I explain some of my madder moments - why I walked out in the middle of a match against Stephen Hendry, why I sat with a wet cloth over my face in a match against Mark King. This is a book about what it takes to be a champion - the sacrifices you have to make, the obsessive practice, the selfishness. Finally, it´s a book about what it´s like to get the buzz; and I hope anybody who´s ever got the running buzz will relate to this. Since turning professional in 1992, Ronnie O´Sullivan has clocked up an incredible number of awards and trophies, including the Embassy World Championship, the China Open, the Regal Championships, the Benson & Hedges Masters, and the British Open. In May 2012 he won the World Championship and announced his retirement. He then 1. Language: English. Narrator: David John.
