Who Pays the Ferryman? is an informative and critical analysis of Scotland's ferry services. It describes the 'glory days' of how, from modest beginnings, Scotland once led the world in maritime development. It contrasts the achievements of the past with the failures, waste and inadequacy of much of today's state-owned ferry provision. In addition to showing how a more equitable fares regime can be devised, Roy Pedersen also addresses sensitive issues such as CO2 and other emissions, state versus private ownership, the place of trade unions and, most importantly of all how, the lot of our island and peninsular communities can be bettered through provision of efficient cost effective ferry services. Drawing on best practice at home and overseas, it sets out how Scottish ferry services can be revolutionised to be, once again, among the best in the world.

Based on Michael J Bird's BBC TV serial. It was 35 years since Alan Haldane had been in Crete, fighting with the partisans, lauded as a hero. Thirty-five years since he'd seen Melina or had word of her. Now he was going back, trying to rediscover in Crete what he had lacked in England: a sense of place, of peace. He couldn't find Melina, and he couldn't forget her, but he discovered that she had borne him a daughter, who was as blind to his existence as he had been to hers. He could not acknowledge her, could not let the past disrupt the present. Yet when he met Annika, and knew he could love her, he could not dispel the shadow cast between them by the ghosts of the war years. He was caught between fear and longing, in a trap that he had laid years before. He was not the only one who remembered. His presence on the island slowly rekindled a vendetta, a blood feud that could end his agony of indecision so simply -- by death.

Predictably unpredictable, normally abnormal. Watson combines science fiction and fantasy into an eclectic mix that includes stories about fallen angels in Hell rebelling and mounting a breakout, about the inconvenience of keeping aging parents in your brain instead of a nursing home, about Jesus' immortal brother as solo passenger on the first starship, about alien coffins bombarding the solar system, about right-wing U.S. militias stealing a quantum computer to commit nuclear blackmail, about a computer games designer haunted by the cyber-ghost of his murdered wife, about frozen heads and strange mind-changes, and how a cake decorator defeats a vampire with a sweet tooth. De-evolution, treasure-hunting via hang glider, dark animal fantasies, humanity as hive-entity, Hercules Poirot on a starship - Watson takes the strange, the eerie the weird, mixes his seasoned writing skills, and produces a potpourri of the fantastic. These nineteen stories are sure to amuse, bemuse and entertain.

This book is intended for practitioners who counsel survivors, particularly families who have experienced the death of a child. The qualitative, rather than the quantitative approach used stems from the author's background in thanatology as a hands-on practitioner of grief therapy. The stimulus for the book came from a need that evolved from the author's practice, research, lecturing and therapy supervision of health professionals to provide better care for clients who faced the death of a loved one.

Blake's 7, Terry Nation's science fiction tale of cosmic freedom fighters, became a hit series in Great Britain when it premiered in 1978. Eight years later, the show quickly became a cult program in America. A dramatization of futuristic outlaw heroes who defend the innocent from both alien and human conquering forces, the series might better be said to be equal parts Robin Hood and The Magnificent Seven. The series defied traditional genre elements of science fiction television, and developed the concept of the continual story arc years before such shows as Babylon 5 and Deep Space Nine.This book provides a critical history and episode guide for Blake's 7, including commentaries for all 52 episodes. Also included are analytical essays on the show, dealing with such topics as themes, imagery and story arc; a consideration of the series as a futuristic Robin Hood myth; cinematography and visual effects; and an overview of Blake's 7 in books, comics and videos. A detailed appendix lists the genre conventions found in the series. The author also includes information about Blake's 7 fan clubs and Internet sites.
