Tired of looking for Mr Right when all she wanted was casual fun, Dawn Porter placed an ad on the craigslist website – notorious for its no-strings adult ads – to see what handsome, wealthy and charming men would respond to her request for surprising nights out and possibly more. Nine months later and the results make for jaw-dropping reading. A cast of characters you couldn’t invent do their best to impress Ms Porter with their wit, wisdom and physical attributes. With nicknames like the ‘very clever wolf’ and the ‘big bumbino’, these would-be suitors’ antics read like a modern comedy of sexual manners. Not content with looking for lust with cute guys, Ms Porter explores her ‘bi-curious’ side and builds up to a liaison with a couple. With a taste for fancy restaurants, fine wines and men who make her laugh, Dawn’s dates are a bang-up-to-the-minute look at modern dating from a clued-up young woman with her eyes on the prize. The question is, will she actually fall for any of her dates?

Emma Gannon was born in 1989, the year the World Wide Web was conceived, so she’s literally grown up alongside the Internet. There’ve been late night chat room experiments, sexting from a Nokia and dubious webcam exchanges. And let’s not forget catfishing, MSN, digital friendships and #feminism. She was basically social networking way before it was a thing – and she’s even made a successful career from it. Ctrl Alt Delete is Emma’s painfully funny and timely memoir, in which she aims to bring a little hope to anybody who has played out a significant part of their life online. Her confessions, revelations and honesty may even make you log off social media (at least for an hour).

A treasure trove of photos of our all-time favourite older man crushes, with witty captions by TV's Dawn Porter to match. There's a new shade in vogue: silver is the new black. Women everywhere are falling for the sophisticated charms of this increasingly visible species -- the silver fox. Take a trip to the cinema and there's gorgeous George Clooney smiling at you with his salt and pepper charm, Harrison Ford with his shimmering locks, Sean Connery with that white-silver tonsure. Turn on your TV and there's a shiny array of them; Des Lynam and Parky, John Slattery as Roger Sterling in Mad Men, endless re-runs of Inspector Morse, Larry Lamb in Eastenders. All your favourites and more are packed into this treat of a book. You won't be able to resist: there's only one reason Monica Lewinsky kept returning to the Oval Office -- it's the silver fox charm.

On September 13, 1998, John Scalzi sat down in front of his computer to write the first entry in his blog Whatever--and changed the history of the Internet as we know it today. What, you're not swallowing that one? Okay, fine: He started writing Whatever and amused about 15 people that first day. If that many. But he kept at it, for ten years and running. Now 40,000 people drop by on a daily basis to see what he's got to say. About what? Well, about whatever: Politics, writing, family, war, popular culture and cats (especially with bacon on them). Sometimes he's funny. Sometimes he's serious (mostly he's sarcastic). Sometimes people agree with him. Sometimes they send him hate mail, which he grades on originality and sends back. Along the way, Scalzi's become a best-selling, award-winning author, a father, and a geek celebrity. But no matter what, there's always another Whatever post to amuse and/or enrage his readers. Your Hate Mail Will Be Graded collects some of the best and most popular Whatever entries from the first ten years of the blog – a decade of Whatever, presented in delightfully random form, just as it should be. * Winner of the 2009 Hugo Award for Best Non-Fiction Book * Introduction by Star Trek actor Wil Wheaton Old Man's War Series #1 Old Man’s War #2 The Ghost Brigades #3 The Last Colony #4 Zoe’s Tale #5 The Human Division #6 The End of All Things Short fiction: “After the Coup” Other Tor Books The Android’s Dream Agent to the Stars Your Hate Mail Will Be Graded Fuzzy Nation Redshirts Lock In The Collapsing Empire (forthcoming) At the Publisher's request, this title is being sold without Digital Rights Management Software (DRM) applied.
