Forget the rule book and relive one of the most exciting race series ever with Can-Am 50th Anniversary! The first rule of Can-Am: There are no rules. Or at least damn few rules. The bodywork had to enclose the wheels and there had to be something that loosely resembled a passenger seat--if your passenger was a misshapen human or a lab monkey. Otherwise, set your racing mind free. No limits to engine options or output, no restrictions on aerodynamic aids or body shape. It was as close to unrestricted as racing had ever gotten or would ever get again. And it was fantastic. From its introduction in 1966 to its end in 1974, North America's Can-Am series was the most technologically advanced and star-studded racing series of the day. Its essentially rules-free formula attracted everyone from crazed backyard engineers to specialists such as McLaren, Chaparral, and Lola to manufacturers like Ford, Ferrari, and Porsche. Top drivers including Mario Andretti, Bruce McLaren, Jackie Ickx, Dan Gurney, Phil Hill, Mark Donohue, Peter Revson, and John Surtees competed on tracks across the US and Canada, taking time off from Formula One schedules to drive in Can-Am. Can-Am 50th Anniversary offers a heavily illustrated look back at what is arguably the greatest race series ever. Photographer Pete Biro followed the series throughout its glory era from 1966-74, his images appearing in Road & Track, Car and Driver and Sports Illustrated. Many of the book's images are unpublished or long out of circulation. Biro brings his unique perspective and his close relationship with the drivers, team owners, and constructors to bear on the captions while former Autoweek motorsports editor George Levy provides text reflecting the thrill of Can-Am racing. Relive one of the most exciting race series ever with Can-Am 50th Anniversary.

Who Goes There - 50th Anniversary Edition

NEW UPDATED EDITION celebrating 50 years of Dr Who. Who Goes There is the sequel to Nick’s hugely popular Doctor Who memoir, Dalek I Loved You. It’s a travel book with Doctor Who at its core. Nick travels England and Wales, seeking locations used in the show, both Classic (pre-relaunch) and New. Being an odd kind of show, its locations too are odd. This is no glamorous trip. Dungeness Nuclear Power Station, anyone? A flooded china clay pit in Cornwall? As he travels, so Nick discovers another side to our well-trodden country, which is no less evocative. Then he goes to the pub. As in Dalek I Loved You, the travel writing is backed up by Nick’s childhood reminiscences and contemporary musings. A companion website offers photographs from the trip, a Google map of the locations and details of the nearest pub. In this innovative way, readers are invited to follow in his footsteps. Scariest of all, given two other books in the pipeline (both humour books, for Arcturus Publishing), Nick has just 21 days in which to write it. Really. Who Goes There isn’t just for Who fans – it’s for anyone who fancies a trip off the beaten path. And a very funny book.

El hielo avanza inexorablemente desde el norte. A través de un paisaje desolado y plagado de peligros, un hombre busca a una muchacha que le rechaza y se escabulle. Su deseo de encontrarla camina parejo al de abandonar el mundo helado y trasladarse a una isla tropical para escribir sobre los lémures cantores. Pero ninguna de estas obsesiones encontrará modo de ser satisfecha. El hombre se convertirá en guerrero, en mercenario, en espía, en el hombre de confianza de aquel que retiene a la muchacha que desea rescatar. La persecución desordenada y angustiosa, es la metáfora del desconcierto y el paisaje, un envoltorio en el que recoger un anhelo loco que no se colma.
