A graceful and powerful memorial.”—Entertainment Weekly “Raw and perfect.”—Laura Miller, Slate When Sarah Perry was twelve, she saw a partial eclipse; she took it as a good omen for her and her mother, Crystal. But that moment of darkness foreshadowed a much larger one: two days later, Crystal was murdered in their home in rural Maine. It took twelve years to find the killer. In that time, Sarah rebuilt her life amid abandonment, police interrogations, and the exacting toll of trauma. She dreamed of a trial, but when the day came, it brought no closure. It was not her mother’s death she wanted to understand, but her life. She began her own investigation, one that drew her back to Maine, deep into the darkness of a small American town.

London 1893. Als Cora Seaborne vom Gerücht hört, der mythische Lindwurm von Essex sei zurückgekehrt und fordere die ersten Menschenleben, macht sie sich auf den Weg in den Küstenort Aldwinter. Cora, eine Anhängerin der provokanten Thesen Charles Darwins, vermutet hinter dem Sagengeschöpf eine bislang unbekannte Tierart. Auch der Vikar von Aldwinter, William Ransome, glaubt den Gerüchten nicht, und versucht, seine Gemeinde zu beruhigen. Zwischen Cora und Will entspinnt sich eine besondere Beziehung und obwohl sie in rein gar nichts einer Meinung sind, fühlen sie sich unausweichlich zueinander hingezogen. Anmutig und intelligent erzählt dieser Roman - noch vor allem anderen - von der Liebe und den unzähligen Verkleidungen, in denen sie uns gegenübertritt.

Eclipses have long been seen as important celestial phenomena, whether as omens affecting the future of kingdoms, or as useful astronomical events to help in deriving essential parameters for theories of the motion of the moon and sun. This is the first book to collect together all presently known records of timed eclipse observations and predictions from antiquity to the time of the invention of the telescope. In addition to cataloguing and assessing the accuracy of the various records, which come from regions as diverse as Ancient Mesopotamia, China, and Europe, the sources in which they are found are described in detail. Related questions such as what type of clocks were used to time the observations, how the eclipse predictions were made, and how these prediction schemes were derived from the available observations are also considered. The results of this investigation have important consequences for how we understand the relationship between observation and theory in early science and the role of astronomy in early cultures, and will be of interest to historians of science, astronomers, and ancient and medieval historians.

Observing the Moon is a definitive work, written as a reference book for anyone seriously interested in the Moon and its geology. It is of course a perfect companion for practical observers. Detailed and extensively illustrated chapters catalog ail the interesting lunar features visible in modest telescopes. They are preceded by a crash course in modern lunar geology - based on the vast amount we have learned during and since the Apollo missions - and are followed by chapters on photographic and CCD imaging, drawing and lunar topography. A CD-ROM accompanies this book and contains an atlas of lunar images and much more. The CD-ROM requires a PC running Windows 3.1 or higher, a minimum of 16MB (Windows 3.1), 64MB (Windows 95 up) of memory and a 2x or faster CD-ROM player.

Unique among amateur astronomy books, The Cambridge Eclipse Photography Guide describes everything a viewer needs to know to observe and photograph the solar and lunar eclipses in the 1990s. It gives maps and descriptions of where and how to watch forthcoming eclipses, with particular attention to two popularly-awaited solar eclipses: an annular eclipse (where a ring of sunlight is visible around the moon) that will cross the United States in 1994, and a total eclipse that will pass over Europe in 1999. The authors also describe past eclipse expeditions, capturing the excitement of the observers. Well illustrated with color and black-and-white eclipse photographs, The Cambridge Eclipse Photography Guide will be an invaluable handbook for those who wish to witness--with safety and understanding--one of nature's most spectacular events. Michael A. Covington is the author of Astrophotography for the Amateur (Cambridge University Press, 1985, 1991). Jay M. Pasachoff, is the author of one of the bestselling astronomy books of all time--Contemporary Astronomy (1989)--as well as many popular Peterson Guides on astronomical subjects.

This is a book for everyone who has ever wondered why pubs should be called The Cross Keys, The Dew Drop Inn or The Hope and Anchor. You'll be glad to know that there are very good - strange and memorable - reasons behind them all. After much research about (and in) pubs, Albert Jack brings together the stories behind pub names to reveal how they offer fascinating and subversive insights on our history, customs, attitudes and jokes in just the same way that nursery rhymes do. The Royal Oak, for instance, commemorates the tree that hid Charles II from Cromwell's forces after his defeat at Worcester; The Bag of Nails is a corruption of the Bacchanals, the crazed followers of Bacchus, the god of wine and drunkenness; The Cat and the Fiddle a mangling of Catherine La Fidele and a guarded gesture of support for Henry VIII's first, Catholic, wife Catherine of Aragon; plus many, many more. Here too are even more facts about everything from ghosts to drinking songs to the rules of cribbage and shove hapenny, showing that, ultimately, the story of pub history is really the story of our own popular history

Sir Robert Anderson (1841-1918) was an investigator with Scotland Yard, who turned his investigative skills to the book of Daniel. This book examines Daniel, especially the 70 weeks, and the coming of the Antichrist, but also provides apologetic evidence for the genuineness of the book of Daniel, examining its date and authorship. He is also the author of several other books such as, Forgotten Truths, The Lord From Heaven, Daniel in the Critics' Den, The Silence of God, Types in Hebrews, Redemption Truths, and more. CHAPTER 1: Introductory … 34 CHAPTER 2: Daniel And His Times … 43 CHAPTER 3: The King’s Dream And The Prophet’s Visions … 50 CHAPTER 4: The Vision By The River Of Ulai … 57 CHAPTER 5: The Angel’ s Message … 63 CHAPTER 6: The Prophetic Year … 72 CHAPTER 7: The Mystic Era Of The Weeks … 77 CHAPTER 8: “Messiah The Prince” … 83 CHAPTER 9: The Paschal Supper … 94 CHAPTER 10: Fulfillment Of The Prophecy … 101 CHAPTER 11: Principles Of Interpretation … 107 CHAPTER 12: Fullness Of The Gentiles … 117 CHAPTER 13: Second Sermon On The Mount … 122 CHAPTER 14: The Patmos Visions … 129 CHAPTER 15: The Coming Prince … 140 Please leave a review of this book, thanks. Reviews: "This classic interpretation of the book of Daniel, dealing with the prophecy of the ninth chapter in particular, has long been considered a standard volume in the field, often quoted, and original in its fresh exposition of Daniel's seventy weeks.... This book belongs on the shelf of every pastor and layman intelligent in the study of the prophetic Word." (Dr. John F. Walvoord) "This is the ablest explanation of Daniel's seventy weeks and related subjects in existence." Dr. Frederick A. Tatford "This book contains so many hidden gems, it should be read slowly to mine all it value. "(Michael D. Fortner, author of Discoveries in Bible Prophecy, and The Beast and False Prophet Revealed)
