Best mates Lisa and Rachael are making a new show almost a decade after they created their first piece together. Back then they had no idea where to start so they went onto the streets and asked the public. What story should they tell? What characters should they play? When they saw Lisa in a wheelchair and Rachael not, what the public said was funny, jaw-dropping and ultimately heartbreaking. They made a show about it. It was called No Idea. Now people say the world has changed and things are looking up. There are more disabled people in the mainstream media, Lisa landed a big part on TV and disabled mates are getting regular auditions - happy days. So what kind of exciting stories are the TV professionals dreaming up for them? Still No Idea is the whole story (so far): the British public, the professional writers, the TV execs. Part verbatim theatre, part improv, part comedy sketch show, this is a raucous and mischievous exposé of good intentions gone bad and how sometimes no matter how hard we try, we still have absolutely no idea.
Only one Dark Knight remain, but that is enough to cause problems for the Alliance. Even the Council of Wizards are cautious to face such an adversary. With the final battle close at hand Alaric has to find the Onyx stone if he is to have any chance against Nyrra. He must conquer all his fears if he is going to succeed. The Alliance is in Remidia, but needs to travel to Avalon to embattle the Evil One's hoards in the final battle. The first time was a ruse, but there is no doubt this time the final battle will be won or lose.
Running from a mutinous crew, sucked through a wormhole like in a bad sci-fi movie and slowly running out of booze . . . and that’s just the beginning of this non-traditional story that starts off as a simple captain’s log book and evolves into something more like a really warped and twisted TV show in text. Follow the Captain and crew on a series of seemingly random adventures, where it’s obvious it’s not just the Captain who’s been drinking. At some point you may ask yourself, is all this just coincidence or is there something dark and annoying on the horizon? The Captain seems to have a drinking problem, the problem being he never has enough to drink and people from his past keep showing up and ruining his buzz / Akki a corrupted artificial intelligence who occasionally takes over the Captain’s log has his own plans, mostly self-serving ones because he has nothing better to do. The rest of the crew, pirates, hot chicks, robots and a foul beaked little space penguin round out the Drunken Space Pirates and with all the wise cracks and shots aimed at everyone and everything its clear the alcohol flows rather freely within the D.S.P. Many of the off the wall characters of the D.S.P. are walking guilty pleasures who say what they feel, do what they want and just generally give it to life, pop culture and the universe in general with both barrels . . . and occasionally fish...
This is my true story and experiences. I'm just an ordinary guy who was lucky enough to spend 14 years working in a unique and unusual job working for a company called NAAFI where as a civillian I helped run and then managed a small shop on board Royal Navy Warships. Follow my ups and downs. highs and lows share my adventures, laughs and tears as i travelled the world selling sweeties to sailors. I suggest this book is best suited for persons aged 14 and over, as some of the content though mild is very suggestive.

In other stories, a woman picks up the wrong hitchhiker, an ex-detective decides to make some money by getting rid of his wife—forever—and a man gets involved in a road accident from which he simply cannot drive away.

A Fillet of Fiction in the Southern Gothic Style with Alternating Narrators
Author: D. S. Carroll
Pubpsher: Xlibris Corporation
Still No Ice at the Fish Market opens with a bomb exploding in the midst of lovemaking and ends up as one of the most innovative literary experiments in years. Two narrators, Eddie Ambler and his former fiance Marsha Beauregard, unfold a harrowing but hilarious tale in alternating chapters, making a fillet of Poe and Southern Gothic storytellers. Eddie writes in huge, impassioned sentences with pyrotechnic imagery while dodging bombs galore. The woman he has loved and lost but hopes to win again confronts the chaos with exceptional clarity and precision. In the final chapter, after Marsha helps deliver Eddie from his nightmares, their divergent styles unite in deeper love, becoming indistinguishable. As the genius who guides these eerie games, the ghost of Poe is exorcised decisively in this rollicking, redemptive respite from the Gothic!
In the New York Times bestseller, Son of No One, part of the blockbuster The Dark-Hunters series by Sherrilyn Kenyon, it's not easy being life's own personal joke, but Josette Landry has made an unstable peace with the beast. Completely down on her luck, Josette takes a job with a local paranormal group as a photographer and camerawoman. Yeah, they're even crazier than she is. The only paranormal thing she believes in is the miracle that keeps her rusted-out hoopty running. But when something truly evil is released into the world, they are forced to call in reinforcements. From the moment Josette meets Cadegan, she knows something about him isn't quite right. Mysterious and armed with lethal sarcasm, he seems a lot older than his age. Centuries ago, Cadegan was viciously betrayed into an immortal prison by the only person he'd ever trusted and was cast into an immortal prison. Forced against his will to do good, he hates everything in life. All he wants is a way out. But for the damned there is only eternal suffering. And yet there is something about Josette that intrigues him. Something he can't seem to fight and the last time he felt this way about a woman, it cost him everything. He knows he has to stay away from her, but the unleashed demon is hell-bent on consuming her soul. If one more innocent is taken, he will be sent back to an unimaginable prison that makes his current hell look like paradise. But how can he keep her safe when his being with her is the greatest threat of all?
